@Policroma-Sol said in For those who are expecting "We'll maybe get other ways to get SGs", because NA Manual originally had casino in it: They removed it.:
I'm gonna be honest. The only thing I disliked about the SG gacha was that the items were no-trade. I purchased some AC without looking, realized it was SG-only, converted to SG on top of my existing SG, and did a stack. Got something I thought would get a good price but didn't really want for myself, went to the store and found it was no-trade. I'm bummed, but I know for next time.
Seriously, that's it.
I feel like I'm missing something. When I poke into the Fresh Finds shop, there's a specific item or two I'm keeping an eye out for. And sometimes I impulse buy. But I don't feel the need to buy EVERY. STINKIN. LAST. ITEM. And so far the SG I've made just playing the game has been enough to get what I want from it.
All this whining and screaming about "it's not fair"... I don't care what was in Japan (And I did play it briefly and don't remember the SG earnings being all that different, regardless of supposed methods to earn them.) Seriously. Stop. You're not some victim who has been horribly oppressed. You're playing a video game, a free-to-play MMO. You're not obligated to spend money on star gems. There's an enormous pile of fashion you can get without them. And knowing how gacha games usually roll, even if 2 months isn't long enough for you to grind up to 40, I'm sure you'll see the non-licensed gachas come around again.
On one last note: The gachas in this game are much more fair than other games I have played. Other games I play fill their gachas with a massive pile of unavoidable trash (such as potions or other objectively worthless items) and you're ridiculously lucky if you land one of the featured items. In PSO2 I seem to get the outfits more often than not, and the "trash", when I get it, seems to be mostly grinding buffs. I can live with that.
"I don't understand the issue but let me speak for you." Lol alright.
Poor arguments by the way. No one is looking to own literally everything. So that's bunk.
Other games doing their stuff worse doesn't excuse bad practices here. So bunk.
The outrage is because people were already not fond of how SG's are being handled. The only viable explanation we had for the different monotization practices prior to the SG scratches was the fact that NA has fresh finds and mission passes. These additions makes things understandable to be different. That's out the window with SG scratch. Which everyone had assumed to be replaced by these additions just as the Treasure shop was removed.
Sega is effectively doubling down on squeezing people for money. They removed ways to earn SG's. They hosted "sales" of bundles that didn't exist prior to them being put in store for a VERY short few days and then to be removed shortly after. And now they give us a scratch that has 2 scratches worth of items (thus bloating the pool to further make it difficult to net the item you want,) and shortened the scratch to 2 months compared to JP that runs theirs for 6. It's so incredibly and blatently obvious on what they're doing.
So lets be perfectly clear here, it's not that you don't "understand" the outrage. You just don't care about it. And you feel justified enough in your own feelings that it's not enough for you to be fine with it. you want OTHERS to be fine with it to. So instead of just keeping quiet you have to come here and tell people their feelings are wrong and not justified.
Because people in JP outraged about Sega only wanting Scion classes to be end game viable Sega balanced the original classes to also be end game viable. because JP complained about SG problems Sega gave them more ways to earn SG. Because we complained about maitenance times Sega changed them to what they are now. Sega needs our feedback in order for NA to be successful. Otherwise anyone who actually cares enough about PSO2 will just switch to JP servers because it's not difficult and due to lovely people is also fully translated. Which will kill off NA and thus ruining the point of bringing it here in the first place.
