The true thing that's hurting the game and the community is the lack of transparency

It seems that despite the numerous request here and on twitter nothing has changed, the game is releasing on steam in a few days and we barely have any info.
We don't know if ship 4-5-6 will be open and more importantly if they're going to have a different schedule for UQ to accomodate the different timezone, we don't know if there will be a preload.

Personally i'm pretty disappointed, to not miss even more content i started playing on NA hoping there will be some sort of info by the time the eu release was available.

Back when i started i was hoping there could be some free ship transfer to relocate on the new ships, now i'm at the point where i hope that some insight gets released before maintenance ends and don't worry your action made perfectly clear you don't care about the playerbase, this is sad.

I used to talk about the lack of need for those ships to open,but now we are talking about welcoming the Steam userbase. Now this is a whole different ball game. I feel like at least one or two more ships would benefit the game at least because these servers are about to get congested AF.

@Morgothryuzaki I thought the same but as an EU person i can assure that the UQ schedule is terrible outside of the intended timezone, heck it's kinda terrible for NA people playing on the other coast.
Cosidering that UQ are basically endgame and most of the time the only "new" content when there's not an huge patch to the game those not being available makes the game pretty lackluster.

Ship2 went down several times during pc launch and in the following weeks, i can't imagine what could happen if they squeeze all the new steam users in only 3 ships.

Well ship 2 sank like this because most JP players flocked to that one,to be fair.

Yea, communication for NA is pretty bad. Really disliked the patch/event day blog posts on website - there is just no heads up, by the time you see it sometimes, the event is half over like the casino ones.

@Efreet2695 Completely agreed, info about if there will be regional servers or not is something that should have been announced last week, when they announced that the game will be opening up to more countries.

But it seems like their focus is on AC/SG related announcements...

Doubt we see EU themed servers that have special times. You'd still have the same maintenance time anyway. The NA team would tell you everything if they could but SoJ is their usual ways of telling you only what they want when they want. Anyone who has played PSO/PSU would know this and it's not a shocker.

BTW NG is gonna be made for JP fanbase in mind and our opinions will mean little to nothing just remember that.

This seems to be a veiled attempt to complain again about the fact ship transfers have a price tag.

Even though i agree that they should be transparent, are we REALLY going to dance this dance about complaining AGAIN and make it sound like the game is nearly dead because of it?

Is that why they revealed it'll come out everywhere at once and why we'll be alongside the JP version by the time it comes out?

And they added a ton of more blocks to handle that. Funny how you ignored that part.

It's funnier you feel the need to triple post just to vent about people having an opinion that differs from yours, if discussion on the official forum are so vexing for your little ego maybe you should simply stop reading them.

Great comeback man, 10/10. The guy saying he wanted free transfers is actually trying to act tough?

some of the things you put there they simply can't say anything like the extra ships because they don't know how will be the influx of new players when all the others are not even full yet, also region schedule is just stupid to ask, they put the schedule there and is always focused in the place that the headquarters of the company is located so just see the hour they happen and see which ones you can do and when will happen in your local fuse time.

It's because MS has been wanting to prove to their fanbase they want it to work with Japan. It doesn't mean they are gonna care what we want NG to be. They care about their fanbase 1st that nets them ultimate return.

@Jamesmor UQ schedule for the last 2 weeks in 3 timezones, USA West, USA East and EU mainland (France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and so on).

Sure, there's still scheduled UQs during the awake part of the EU timezone, but they're clearly alot more sparse in EU than in the USA for similar times of the day. With how sparse the UQs are, it becomes more unlikely for EU players to experience the UQs they want to play more.
