Majority of people do not like the new sg scratch. Pls change if you care.

First step, I'm hoping for the SG scratch tickets items to be tradable at least.

SG scratch is terrible. There are too many items, not enough SG to go around, and no way to prevent duplicates. If they could be traded/sold to other players then duplicates would be less of an issue, but the fact remains that we have less ways obtain SG than JP servers. You're running the SG currency as thin as possible between Fresh Finds, Gold Mission Pass, Material Storage, and now SG scratch tickets.

It's incredibly tone deaf to numerous issues including the legality of loot box systems, the current economic state of North America, and the fact that you're creating a sense of sense of urgency by running this scratch for 8 weeks when these often ran for 2x or 3x as long in JP where SG is easier to obtain.

Bad move overall IMO.

Possible solutions

  1. Reduce the SG tickets 40, to account for the item bloat of the ticket.
  2. Extend the expiration to 4 months instead of 2 (Still garbage, but manageable)

What I would rather see:

  1. Expand the functionality of the Fresh Finds shop to include these items and do away with the SG scratch entirely.
  2. When you spend money on AC you get a percentage reward 5-10% in SG
  3. Better SG rewards on Mission pass that are NOT tied to gold tier. Gold tier can still have an advantage, but the base tier return needs to be better. Or a higher frequency of SG login rewards.

Possible solutions

    1. Reduce the SG tickets back to 40 just like JP

SG scratch tickets are 80 SG on JP, but I do agree that they should be reduced in price on NA (imo even 40 is too much though), since they've merged 2 JP SG scratches into 1 (more items in the scratch, less changes to get what a player wants), it's only available for 2 months and due to how many SG sinks there are on NA.

@Ezodagrom hmmm i don't know why I thought it was 40, i uninstalled my JP version to free up space .. So I couldn't fact check myself. I'll edit that. Thanks for the correction.

Throwing my name into the basket for this. It's a needed change. NA is going through 8 years of story content in a year. Naturally things cannot be copied directly from JP and not run into some problems. We still want all banners and cosmetics JP gets but without the options to build up SG and the banners lasting much shorter than JPs did- some fundamental changes need to be made for those who want to obtain these items. There is so....so... SO much cosmetics in pso2- I understand Sega of JP believes as long as they bring as much over as possible we might not complain but there's no point without the relatively same opportunity to obtain them that JP did. An SG scratch at 80 sg per with the current fresh finds formula is just not happening. Many changes are needed. I'd start with giving free choice tickets at something like 10 SG scratches rather than 40. And maybe lowering SG scratch to 50. Would be helpful enough. Let's be honest here- even the whales are not going to buy into this robbery as much as Sega believes.

@DHG-MumfordsSon You contribute absolutely nothing to the conversation, you should just leave the forums till you can form a rational argument.

Rather than combining the scratches into one, and diluting the chances of pulling what we want, they should have made multiple scratches running at the same time. This and actually add in all of the different ways to get SG ASAP; there is no reason to have some of these like SG in the Casino.

@Archetype-Luna Or they should have made the SG scratch items available on fresh finds shop or battle pass, JP doesn't have either of these features, so they could have added these outfits there over time even after NA catches up with JP...

Or the price per try on the SG scratch should have been alot lower, like 25 SG or so, taking into consideration the amount of items on the scratch, how long it's lasting and all the SG sinks on NA.

Not gonna lie, I really like the idea of adding them over time after NA catches up. Also, the other options are also quite attractive. So yes, 200% wholeheartedly agree.

And yeah, there is a huge issue with how we have more SG sinks and less SG income. Doesn't help that outfits are getting more and more expensive and you have to pay between 300-500k for an outfit that you can still claim SG with.

@fkingnametaken imagine getting mad over some 8yr old content, no one is making you roll. i dont roll on sg scratch in JP and i wont roll on any in NA

also yeah sega just drop 8 years of content in one day, F the new players who never played JP right

Dropping $120 on AC scratch is fine, but doing it on SG scratch isnt? dumb mindset welcome to the world of Free-To-Play video games. imagine thinking games servers pay for themselves. not saying big companies cant but why would when they can make the game free and have players fund the server

Really hoping the devs see this and do something about this.... heres hoping xD... But i won't hold my breath...

I sadly wanted stuff from this scratch but this is way to much for me.... :C

BUT!! SG Scratch item have a good thing too. It's this ticket. a0308f2f-6fd5-4daa-b03a-1bde6da2efae-image.png

that you can use '40 SG Recycle Badges' to get 'Awake Administer Ticket' in 'Swap shop'(This Ticket not have in NA at now)

The fact that it's not in NA worries me, because the NA ticket has a similar thing: Roll 40 times and you get a guaranteed Fallen Heroes ticket. Because of the similarity to the JP ticket, I assume it's a replacement, but it has the awful limitation that it's a "Fallen Heroes" ticket, not an SG Scratch ticket. So it seems like in NA, you roll 40 times and you don't even get to use your free ticket on future scratches either, and you have to roll 40 times in a single SG scratch rather than being able to space out your scratches over a few different campaigns like in JP.

Well this is going to be another thing I am going to tell people in game.
