-_- all this stuff for playing PvP yet Challenge Mode is ignored.

Please do SOMETHING with it.

Normal. Challenge is dead on JP like 5 years ago. PVP there some few ppl like my friend that reached Legend Rank that still play it. The next new type quest that comes with EP5 called buster quest, died with 2 weeks on JP.

Ok. Thanks. At least I know for sure that SEGA don't care and won't ever fix it. Beats checking every week with false hope. Such a shame.

In a dengeki interview with YSOK, they talked about updating challenge mode down the line: https://dengekionline.com/articles/43716/

──チャレンジクエストやカジノ、ライディングクエストなど、既存コンテンツの調整などは予定していますか?

ロードマップには入っていませんが、今あげていただいたなかにはあります。年内を目標に進めておりますので、続報をお待ちください。

Rough translation:

──Are you planning to adjust existing content such as challenge quests, casinos, and riding quests?

It's not on the roadmap, but it's included in the list. We are aiming for this year, so please look forward to the next report.

Id maybe throw this into the suggestions area with some ideas

Hmm.. I need to start running these for whatever titles now that I've just about completed episode 4.

Everyone seems to make the challenge mode sound dreadful haha.

@Redex I think it's mostly because online PvP focused games tend to draw out the toxic and trollish far more than a PvE mode.

I would love if it would scale to the # of players so you could play solo Challenge Mode, because the concept is AMAZING but nobody is ever on to play it ! Same with Ridroid stuff. I know this is an MMO, but you can't even use alliance chat in Challenge Mode Lobby so by the time you realize there's no open lobbies you have to back all the way out to the normal game to maybe recruit a single party group if that, but due to the way it is most people aren't playing it right now.

Content which doesn't have the playerbase to maintain it needs some kind of balancing checks... Of course urgent quests shouldn't be [easily] soloable, but something like Challenge Mode or Ridroids need to be balanced to scale based on # of people in lobby when the teleporter sequence finishes IMO.

@Kurumi-Tokisaki Seriously I keep trying to get the "Decision: Beginner" Title for that one ARKS Mission and I can't find anyone to do it with.

I honestly find the mode really fun but no one seems to bother playing it.

It does kind of suck that it's not worth doing... I enjoy the challenge mode... just something about starting from nothing and having to start over is fun to me... I have however logged something like 10,000 hours in skyrim and havent ever completed the main story line... just kept making new characters lol... so maybe it's just a "me" thing... idk

Can easily solo

It already scales to player number, basically the VR timer drains a slower when you have less than 12 players, with the drain depending on player number.

Because of this, the easiest party size to clear Challenge with is actually 8 players (since more players don't speed up things like travel time), with 4 being the best with a group of people who know how to play for maximum score.

I actually did a solo Strike earlier today for fun here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/738892976

I've also done solo Decision twice on the full Miles Route, but that shit is super difficult so I don't really recommend trying that. Decision on the full VR route is pretty chill though.


As to the OP, yes pls, more incentives to play Challenge, thanks. It's already pretty rewarding but more is always good.

@Shirokami07

I think we have a different definition of "easily".

Especially when going into the mode the first time.
