@Reilet 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.:
This took ~11 minutes for 20 SG compared to Casino which is easily over 2 hours (or however long it takes you to get 11,200cc) for 40 SG or Buster that is around ~5 hours at best for 100 SG.
Surely the more important thing is how often you can get those?
You can think of it as 20 SG in 11 minutes, I think the more important thing is it's 20 SG per week (conditional on a qualifying time). The casino by contrast is 40 SG per week which is clearly better, and in conjunction that's 60 SG per week. Add in PSO2es for a further 7 SG per week.
At this point I'm going to remind everyone that Login Stamps exist and presumably are the same as on JP (Edit - They are). If so that's 60 SG every 30 stamps. Let's do a little dirty rounding with PSO2 days involved to say 30 stamps is 4 weeks without premium and 2 weeks with it, so with free you get 15 SG per week and with premium you get 30 SG per week in both JP and NA.
Between rankings (assuming 20), casino, PSO2es and login stamps you get 82 (free) or 97 (premium) SG per week on JP. With scratches lasting 6 months (26 weeks), those sources provide 27 or 32 scratches over the course of a set, plus whatever Buster quests and a bugger accumulation of of SG-providing campaigns give.
Between rankings (assuming 20) and login stamps you get 35 (free) or 50 (premium) SG per week on NA. With scratches lasting 8 weeks those reduced sources provide 3 or 5 scratches over the course of a set, with a shorter period to have SG campaigns. Oh and by the way unlike JP we're also asked to spend it on Fresh Finds.
Oh, my numbers are out. Because our SG scratch is a combination of two SG scratches on JP:
15 June to 14 June. That's a full year of JP SG scratch right there. 52 weeks! In that time the natural SG sources above pay for 53 (free) or 63 (premium) scratches.
And in the 8 weeks of our combined SG scratch, our reduced SG sources give us enough for... 3 or 5 scratches, if we don't spend any on Fresh Finds.
