idk why NA players would choose to play JP NG over NA NG - no translation - no english support at all
Not all of us need translation - I play the game without needing 3rd party tweaker and been doing translation from JP site to provide more information that the NA side may not have.
largely japanese community...
This is actually a positive for some of us. There are even people that purposely choose to not play on JP Ship2 (the main overseas ship). While I appreciate the English community, there are parts that I wish I didn't have to deal with - explained later in post
and why would anybody do work on translating NG for "NA JP player" when theres an english version coming out at the same time as JP - mostly because they want to prevent on splitting the community...wich is why it would sound reasonable to ip block western player from ng jp....
Let it be ping for people in SEA, or for people that just prefer the JP community - the current English community on JP Ship 2 is still quite sizable. And there you go with the doom and gloom again for the JP servers - assuming overseas IP block which you have no source for as they never did for PSO2 - even when they announced the initial Western release in 2013, even when SEA and TW servers were running, and even now with NA release. You criticize people in the NGS thread for having a bad lookout yet you are doing the same for JP.
all jp vets were hoping for a western release - wich we get at the same time as jp for the upgraded version
Says who... you? Why are you trying to speak for everyone. Great that you love NA so much, but like I mentioned before, there's still a large population of English players on JP Ship2 who can care less about non-JP servers - you played JP PSO2 before, come, talk to people around that are playing on JP servers. Or if you really don't want to, there are still players playing on JP servers on PSO-World.
really no reason to start on JP NG as you can see unless you are either a huge japan fan and cant live without it....or if you never hoped for a western pso2 in the first place
I really do not know why you are so vindictive towards the JP servers or people that prefer it.
people who quit NA to play on JP only because "they get less SG in NA than JP" are hella -insert any word to your liking-...sorry
Feel like this is a shot at me, sorry if you think SG was the only reason I left NA, it just happened to be the last straw. There are myriad of reason
let it be censorship - character creator restriction, no smart inner and who knows what else they will avoid bringing over for fashion, the need for them to take out the shot that showed innerwear on the NA NGS trailer
let it be the rate of content coming out - JP maints every week and very often some new content that's not scratches comes out, they may be much smaller patches but at least there's something new to farm that actually drops items that you would want. On NA, with the release of NT Nemesis/Slave which you can buy off the player shop - you're basically set for until EP5 aside from a few super rare drop 14 stars from EP4 Urgents. I expected the opposite for a game that is trying to play catch up, content to be coming out constantly with something new to work for every week, rather than lobby grinding for months on end. I heard people are still locked out of their personal rooms on NA due to the poster from the SG scratch, hopefully this get fixed soon. JP is not perfect, 12 star units are currently slightly messed up (you cant enhance or affix them but you can upgrade them with Zieg to 13 star and not run into any trouble) due to error while putting 12 star units into player shops that they unlocked this week - but they immediately posted on the main page once notified and promised the fix next week.
Mobile games - I like being able to do playershop for PSO2 on an App, able to farm Receptor affixes easier in them, work on pets - mags - dark blast - collection files with a different method, and above all else, I enjoy the story and content that these games provides while being rewarded in PSO2 at the same time.
Collaborations - let it be collaborations with PSO2es or IDOLA, or other real life collaborations with like Seven-Eleven, Lawson, Toranoana, Dengeki, etc. I really don't see these happening much for a game that wish to go global. Only example I have is from FFXIV that tried with US Amazon, some magazine in EU, Seven-Eleven in JP - which I would say were not very well received as it ends up excluding people from them.
Community - JP players tend to respect personal privacy a bit more, you see less of SA spamming from them, less in game harassment like the people going around shaming people doing SG scratch or spamming in the game in general. None of that #1 alliance on NA Ship 2 bs. There is no RMT spam and JP have very hard stance on RMT and account sharing, they punished people for buying their expert matching condition wins.
Lastly, yes the monetization. I feel the NA PSO2 is getting monetized much more than JP. Let it be the fresh find shop or releasing SG scratch with the current state of SG and combining 2 scratches with 1/3 of the time. While you can earn SG with outfit, someone else had to buy that AC scratch. Looking at the AC sales, although I wouldn't buy any of these and the items offered are different, the packs are much more expensive on NA (linking the picture because it's big)
It's great that you like the NA servers, but can you please stop insulting us that prefer JP servers.
