I was browsing the internet as I usually am and was inspired after visiting the PSO2 Twitter to pop into forums.
I just wanted to say thank you to the community and developers for giving me such a positive initial experience over the CBT weekend. I am a completely new player to the the entire franchise and hopped on the hype train when I started seeing PSO2 in my recommended videos on YouTube. After jumping into the game I had a lot of fun grouping with people and taking on quests ( I believe I only missed 1 maybe 2 events over the entire CBT ) and I ended right around level 30. I can tell this game has a lot to offer, and I was rushed to really get a feel of the game-play during CBT so I overlooked the bulk of the itemization and secondary features ( Casino, etc...). Honestly, this all just makes me even more excited to learn the more in-depth parts of the game when I get a chance to get into the live game and spend time on it.
I know many people do not like to read long blocks of text so in summary:
First time player experience.
Excellent grouping system for easy matchmaking parties.
Learning curve seems steep. though third party websites and videos can overcome this
CBT already over
Final Thought Thanks for a great experience and keeping your players well informed via Twitter etc. during the struggles of CBT. KEEP IT UP!
