As JP players know the so called Scion classes are a topic of hot debate on JP servers in regards to game balance. First arriving with HERO class in EP5 the implementation of them nearly buried PSO2 alive with the episode noting large player drop and extremely negative opinion wave on many social platforms. The so called Scion classes made a sizeable chunk of playerbase stop playing due to being a straight declaration from then directing Hamazaki to stop playing what you like and play what makes Sega cut down balancing costs even if it means phasing out subclassing, skill trees that actually mattered, and making literally everyone play one class only for months. While to some extend ,and through months of brave legacy players sticking to their ways while cowardly successor traitors enjoyed their class bias, many balancing problems have been patched up allowing legacy classes to outdo successor ones with twice the effort, it's clear that the game has and would be doing better without scion/successor classes. We will even have to deal with Etoile subclassing (yes, thanks to legacy effort we were given option of using 2 newest successor classes as subclasses to legacy classes only) that for example broke the game balance severely offering free 70% damage resist on top of being the best damage subclass for many class combos too.
For those reasons and more I propose indefinite postponement in the implementation of Scion classes on North American servers .
