Its nice day outside son, go out and play.

Can't, have the virus. 😞

Saying a prayer 🙏 to cure you of your illness.....on the real!

It isn't fun, but it is necessary. Online games that are continuously updated and patched must be accepting of feedback. Developers are not infallible, they can make mistakes and it is up to us to call them out on it. An online game without feedback is doomed to failure; feedback is part of what helped the game grow in JP and is part of why it has lasted this long.

@Archetype-Luna There is a fine line between calling out flaws, (while asking said flaws to be fixed) and jumping to the worst conclusions imitative. And that's all I've been seeing lately. People complaining about things that weren't even known one way or another, or in the case of transferable cosmetics, known. Those transfer, and yet people are still saying that they don't , based on something as stupid as word choice.

To be fair, I'm one of the people who have said people need to chill on the NGS issues. I am more talking about things like SG threads which the OP and I have butted heads on numerous times.

@Archetype-Luna In regards to the SG thing, I'd wait until episode 4 releases to get upset by it. It's entirely possible, releasing the game in chunks caused issues with certain mechanics, and from what I was told, ways to earn SG on the JP side of things, weren't implemented until after episode 4.

The thing to note though is that SG Scratch Tickets were not implemented in JP until mid Episode 4. So if we go by the logic of that being in episode 3 is why we don't have SG in say the Casino and Challenge Mode, as they can function as weekly SG sources, we shouldn't have SG Scratches either. Because SG Scratches were implemented while we are still in Episode 3, when they are originally implemented in Episode 4, I really can't accept the Episode 4 excuse. Like I have to call that out.

Sega should know better as well. SG Scratches, when they came out, came under a huge backlash from the JP playerbase due to a lack of SG sources at the time.

@Archetype-Luna The scratch system is already implemented, so I could see how they could add in SG scratch. If you noticed, certain NPC's weren't added in, until certain updates. Hell, that one dude near the swap shop, has zero functionality right now, because the millage score isn't a thing yet. Some parts of the game work, and other parts don't. Like I said, I'd wait until after the related content is released, because then you'd have a very strong leg to stand on.

The scratch system was already implemented in JP as well before SG Scratches were a thing. Again, we already have a strong leg to stand on. Also, we are already able to get challenge miles from Challenge Mode. Being able to turn in Challenge Miles for SG would be a great way for players to earn SG on a weekly basis.

@Archetype-Luna Really? Because if thats the case, why can't I use the store? It says I'm earning challenge miles, but the store says I don't have any. That's a conflict of information. If episode 4-6 release, and that SG earning system isn't implemented, then you can say without a shadow of a doubt, that NA got shafted, but until then, you really can't. That's the hill I'll stand on.

@Anarchy-Marine I am not sure why you can't use the store. I have challenge miles right now and can spend them. You may want to take this up with support while you can't earn challenge miles.

Like I just tested it just now: alt text alt text

Yeah, I can spend them normally. I have no issue spending my challenge miles at all.

I am very confident that I have a leg to stand on in regards to this issue, that the current monetization of SG is something that needs to be called out. Ways to earn SG on a weekly basis should have came with the SG Scratch; it's a red flag that they didn't.

@Anarchy-Marine Like I said, perhaps you want to contact support on that. Seems like you are suffering from a bug of some kind and should get that fixed. You should be earning challenge miles right now from Challenge Mode.

@Archetype-Luna To be fair, I havent tried anything with it since before the last maintenance, so maybe that issue was already resolved. He was introduced during the 4th of July event, and there was a lot of stuff added all at once.

@Anarchy-Marine I guess give it another try. Hopefully it works. Like there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get any Challenge Miles. Honestly though, I've had challenge miles for a while now. Like I started obtaining them well before the last maintenance. At most, it was a week after the 4th of July event was introduced when I first tried Challenge Mode. So it seemed really strange that you didn't get any Challenge Miles; like hopefully that bug is fixed because Challenge Miles are a great way to get a starter 13* Weapon. The soul on them is not bad either and they have Soul Receptor as well. They aren't nemesis or slave weapons, but they aren't half bad if you need something to upgrade from Nox weapons.

@Archetype-Luna Well, no game ever has an update go live, without at least one bug. At least not in my experience. Especially in a Bethesda game. Those break more than they are fixed.
