As of lately it seems like PSO has turned into a major cash grab. From the Star Gem limited time shop where you cannot sell jack on Marketplace, to the battle coin shop also being blocked from being sold in marketplace. To the weapons losing its potential value, to the ARKS members constantly dropping the value of any item senselessly. Making AC items the legitimate sellable item to get more bang for your buck. Even then you have people heedlessly undercutting.
Why is there so many walls preventing you from making your meseta? Why is it I cannot sell what I rightfully find or buy? Even mission pass items cannot be sold? Why? Is there a legitimate reason why there's so many walls? Or is it because PSO wants to make their money? I understand you need funding to develop NGS but there is a thing as too much. This is too much. It takes the need to grind PvP away. Makes Star Gems feel like a robbery.
Even the Premium Pass which I would assume let you trade what you want especially if you're charing 15 full dollars a month to use. If I cannot trade 13 stars why are you charging me 15 dollars then? If there's limitation to what's being traded then drop the cost of the Pass to 8 dollars that's fair enough for such a limited pass such as "Premium" pass.
These things I just need to get off my chest because this is a good game it really is but it feels like the developers are going a whole cash grab route. I felt like they spent more time adding more things to charge you for than actually adding more content. There's bugs, glitches, that needs to be fixed but those never got addressed. PvP is an atrocious mess, Ultimate has bosses that seem to have unlimited health pool, but hey..... At least they dropped the new line.
