Firstly thanks to the DEVS for bringing PSO to America. I feel that the dreamcast system, Phantasy Star Online and the internet revolution had a monstrous part in shaping online gaming as we see it today. It's been a loong time...
That Said, let's jump right in to some constructive criticism of the game. Here are some of the obvious fixes for the game moving forward.
Robots do not take poison damage of any kind. If it's a sustained slow drain on health, Robots do not take that damage. Also robots are supposed to be able to see traps as soon as they are able to be loaded in, aka no obstruction between the eyes and the traps. (this is the way it was on PSO1 AND PSO2)
If the party dies durring a boss fight, they are to remain on the ground until a player picks them up. You shouldn't be able to travel back to the ship, jump back into the portal and back into the still going boss fight, you should remain on the ground until you are picked up, everyone is dead and you fail, or the boss is defeated. This completely defeats the purpose of scape dolls and makes this game too easy, honestly I'm pretty bored because nothing has been a challenge yet. Not sure if it's because its the beta or not, but I think is waay to easy. Am I alone on this?
EMERGENCY!!! I don't think this translated well to English, it should be along the lines of, "INCOMING" We feel that this vocal narrative is completely obnoxious and annoying, and I'd personally rather do without a massive flash accross my screen and a guy yelling "EMERGENCY" in my ear every 60 seconds. Maybe find a different way to announce that there is an incoming event. Or do away with the announcement of it completely, I feel they are also too frequent.
Lacking content for robot heads, arms, legs, and body. If you guys plan to do paid character skins than I guess it is what it is, but I would prefer to see alot more free content to create a base character, it feels pretty limited. Maybe some American haircuts and a baseball cap or a helmet with visor? How is bald or a shaved head not an option?
Mini maps should not display entire map. I think the game is being played too fast because no one has to look at the map anymore. If you can think back to how the mini maps were displayed in PSO 1(Dreamcast) You had to go into the menu and look at your map, if your teammate was off in an undiscovered area, you had to search for the way. To get to him.
framer ate, but I'm sure you know that..
That's all I got for now. I'll post more feedback later tonight.
