Star Gems NA VS JP

I have noticed now various activities give currency that can be used to grab SGs. How close are we to the JP Star Gems gain now?

Global tends to give more SG on average as there's constant "Free SG" campaigns, and we have all the sources from JP (unless there's some later Episode 6 ones that I'm unaware of).

We've had almost all the sources since the start of Episode 4, was just missing Buster Quest SG.

@Matt Were not getting the SG from the Idola points that JP gets which is like 100 SG/week. Were actually way behind JP because of that. We get SG campaigns like once a month for like 200 SG at most. That leaves us at least 200 SG behind per month compared to JP and thats being really generous.

There's also the daily 1SG and 100k exp ticket login bonus for PSO2es

Yeah last I heard the main comparison now was no Idola (up to 100/week, more realistically 50/week as it follows similar models to Casino and Battle Coins exchanges) and no PSO2es (7/week) but our mission pass is a net zero for F2P or a net gain for Premium users (~47/week) whereas on JP it's a net cost (~23/week) as their mission pass has a different reward structure. On the whole you could say it balances out now, for sustainable SG income we're looking much healthier than before Episode 4.

The bigger difference is SG expenditure as many AC items on JP cost SG on Global thanks to Fresh Finds (consequently we also lack the Treasure Shop which has sold some items for meseta that Global has yet to have distribution methods for, like OST music discs). The only other difference worth mentioning when it comes to PSO2es and such is the additional storage boxes given by PSO2es (100) and OTP (I forget, 200?)

So basically its not perfect, but we are in a much better spot.

We get more SG but so many more things are locked behind SG

Idola Points is the easiest way of getting SG. So easy in fact youd not only have enough to cap out your SG for the week just by simply turning on the Idola app for 30 seconds every day but youd also have more than enough points to get a 1mil exp ticket ontop of it.

My information on IDOLA in JP might be incorrect or outdated then.
