@GM-Sirius said in A couple of issues with the game that I think need to be addressed.:
Hi guys, I just moved the thread to "Suggestions, In-game Suggestions" section as it is best suited for this discussion. Thank you.
I don't see why it belongs in the suggestions thread besides the fact that maybe that section gets less views and you rather not deal with the headache. A more hands on approach would've been appreciated to the concerns of many rather than it feel like an attempt to bury it by moving the thread.
I strongly feel that it belongs in the General Discussion so more people see it.
A lot of PC players have voiced these concerns and I decided to bring them up on the main forums since this is the only place where those opinions matter.
We've discussed it on twitter and reddit. They say to look forward to the next event and "sharing is caring" and strongly suggest something but until either A) They just blatantly flat out say it or B) it happens.
I'm not going to be as optimistic
I'm not trying to further diversify the two communities.
I want PC to be on the same exact page as console. I want us to have those 6 skill reset passes so that new & old players can fix any mistakes they may have made. So that we can enjoy the pass 3 seasons of cosmetics and scratch offs that console got.
Some people can't even play the game cause they're not familiar with tweaker.
I'm just going to say flat out that A lot of your points are irrelevant.
Making it sound like there were 6 passes given out over a 2.5 month period is a bit disingenuous because not everyone has a minimum of 3 characters, it is more accurate to state there were 2 distribution periods for skill passes.
2 distribution periods or 6 passes. It doesn't matter. There was absolutely no reason for console to have 2 distribution periods for a total of 6 passes were you to have 3 characters. There was no major update that would've required you to overhaul your skill tree.
The only reason why I can see them doing it is them assuming console players not knowing they were doing and assuming the majority of PC players came from JP servers with prior experience. Which shouldn't even be taken into consideration.
When PC launched in the very least, they should've AT-LEAST given PC players 2 passes through account rewards
The market advantage/disadvantage isn't as pronounced as stated when taking into consideration that a currently running, brand new AC scratch has items that premiere at 15m or more, accessible by anyone who purchases AC scratches.
It is pronounced and it is disadvantage. No ones talking the new AC items. That wasn't the point.
No matter how you paint it or downplay it, PC isn't going to get those items anytime soon and the ones that are still around and are on the market are still very highly priced.
And the people that did, are going to hae a bigger wallet which will just further influence future sells cause they're going to keep buying popular stuff as it comes out at a low cost and then sell them high.
So what they bought for 1 mil - 10 mil a few months ago. They can now sell for 20-40 mil.
The market advantage of PC players compared to PC players comes in the form of weapons. Those 13* weapons that PC players can snag for less than 1 mil cost over 10m during Xbox time
What does that mean? Xbox time?
PC playeds have gotten 1 seasonal (Wind and Rain), 2 new modes (Ultimate), (Challenge), got to come into the game during a unique, limited concert period and the first collaboration (Hatsune Miku), and have gotten to experience a first for PSO2: Independence Day.
We didn't get anything lmfao. We all got that. Matter of a fact PC partially joined during wind and rain where many who didn't "No-Life" the game couldn't do Wind & Rain on XH for the rare drop weapons you could've got. We joined part way through.
time is infinitely more valuable than trinkets that will eventually return
I agree with @Miraglyth
There's no guarantee on if and when we'll have revivals.
There's been no official comment on mission pass items returning, there's been no comment on when fresh find items will return, and I don't see how they're gonna do AC revivals anytime soon when they have 8 years of scratch offs to push out.
You're solely making the assumption that Japan had revivals so we will too but as of right now that isn't the case.
The complete disregard to the value of a player's time due to a personal stance on vanity items really leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Kinda strange considering part of this thread is complaining about how long PC players have to wait to get a skill reset. Especially when it is guaranteed to happen after waiting a period of time.
PC has to wait till August and that's IF they're guaranteed to hit that road map and there's no delay. No matter how you look at it, there was no reason for 2 distribution of passes to have gone out prior
If bringing back the Dreamcast isn't an indication of their willingness to bring back those other cosmetics you spent entirely too much on, then I don't know what to tell you. The Dreamcast mag was designed in JP to be exclusive to those who made a conscious effort to be included in the population that received it. Even if anyone has a source that could prove they were coming back, they wouldn't share it with someone that would blast it all over the place, resulting in their unique access to information being compromised.
To bring up the fact that the Dreamcast mag was exclusive to Japan and was only obtainable through effort is irrelevant.
Cause we're not Japan. It's just that simple.
All in all, I feel like you're making assumptions and just blatantly downplaying everything when there's been no real comment and assuming that these items will return. And when and IF they do return, they're still going to be higher priced cause people will now know their value.
No matter how you look at it, PC is at a disadvantage due to a staggered launch with a multitude of several issues that still stand to this today.
We missed out on rewards, we missed out on cosmetics, we missed out on events or partially thereof and yet PC has to go utilize a 3rd party launcher to reliably play a game cause it wasn't tested properly.
They ported it over to Xbox to integrate it with xbox live, slapped on a crappy Translation patch, and then released it blindly over to PC.
If they wanted to do true testing, they could've simply done a CBT with cross-play involved but since they didn't they only assumption that could be made is they wanted to test it on xbox to make it was seamlessly working with the Xbox Live interface
