SG Scratch Insults Playerbase - Less players = Less Money

The SC scratch was the most insulting Gacha i've ever spent money on in my life. SEGA needs to issue an apology (with compensation) or make SG items tradeable! I got repeat emotes, that can't even be reused!

-Multiple .. like TONS of male outfits EVEN THO MY ACCOUNT IS ALL FEMALE! RIP OFF!

-Normally I hype games up and try to promote players to spend money if they have it.. But after this, Absolutely not, and i can see why the playerbase has NOT been growing, when Sega/Microsoft treats its paying customers so poorly!

Had the SG "Fallen Heroes" scratch lasted A LOT LONGER, perhaps it wouldn't seem like a scam & more likely would have appeared to be a long term investment, in order to someday luck the item desired.

  • Extend the "SG Scratch" date until PSO:NewGen show some good faith towards your whales & those who love the PSO series!

+Either Remove "Gender Locked Cosmetics" OR , simply make Gacha/Scratch prizes pool differently based on the character's, Male OR Female gender.

How behind the times is SEGA/Microsoft?

No, i wont be holding my breath, & i will be sinking even more money before this ends... but I'm yet another person on the edge of just spending my money somewhere else if this is how PSO2 NA is going to be.

& i haven't decided yet, if i'll be reporting this as a 'bad business practice' with the BBB or international equivalent.

Stop ignoring your customers, or we'll come share how we really feel on your promotional sites like twitter!

yes i noticed how the banwave (of RMT bots) happened once players in game went to social media, after learning Sega will only pay attention if these problems are broadcasted publicly!

Do the right thing? or .. would you prefer the players go public about these issues?

Is your brain ok?

@KYBELA I understand your concern. They already said they will extend the SG Scratch until January (I think it was the 13th).

My only concern is if I'll lose my bonus or not 😕

Losing bonus is a good point, so far they havent updated it in game yet and we are reaching the original deadline. I hope they update it to lengthen the end date instead of putting up a new one with longer date.

@Frost-Soar oh they did?

that would be pretty nice if they decide to do something like that.

i am curious which bonus you mean? as in the 'choice ticket'?

would be nice if they keep that in, seeing as how there are already non cosmetic items on top of the issues i already mentioned. but.. i guess at least we'd have more time, seeing as game is labeled f2p and there was definitely not a way for f2p to have a serious chance at that ticket. (within the current time-frame given, & earn-able SG available in game)

appreciate the headsup tho. ill try to remain hopeful as i keep spending, mostly in support of PSO and Sega! even tho i do strongly wish to complete the Matoi set that she wore around the end of Ep3. no (viel) wings still, but did luck the sword & outfit thankfully.

i +1 this tho.

very nearing my own 'choice ticket' within ~200SG and was wondering what would happen if i kept drawing past that point. if it would reset and be a waste of my money, etc. or disappear.. which is that FOMO stuff, that i've personally come to despise in the mobile gaming market. (of which am completely done with)

Yep, they did.

As I said, it's just not confirmed yet if they will just re-add the scratch or just change the date, hoping for the later.

thanks! & i'd have to say the same then.

unless they seperate the male & female gacha into seperate pools, otherwise hard to think of many valid reasons to... "reset" vs truly "extent" it.

yeah, making them tradable could fix it.

It's copying the JP model (as far as I know), which didn't allow them to be tradable.

The last I checked, the majority of the items are female. The odds are random however, so you may never get a female item. It's just how it works.

The scratch has been extended much longer due to feedback, which is great.

I don't see players leaving over an optional scratch for story related content, which many tend to skip entirely.

-SG scratch got extended

-40 SG scratches can easily be fund by in game activities + events + titles even for true f2p (for those who actually care and cannot live without these items and would otherwise quit...idk why but ok maybe some are thinking that way just pure assumption either way)

-Some people have male and female characters so making different pools might work against another playerbase unless you half the "free to choose" ticket requirements to 20 pulls for each pool wich might counter that and feels overall more convenient

-making SG items tradeable would work for bots - you have no clue how easily bots can grab 2k SG from titles and login events + casino....there is a reason why they are not tradeable on japan - i am strongly against this
