Where did the bit about JP totally ending their MP come from?
@LusterMain linked it in the topic's first reply:
According to JP, it appears they are no longer making mission passes.
Hm, gotcha. It's kind of interesting though that the headline there is specifically about them not selling the Golds anymore, and they just mention that golds won't be sold anymore as a result of the total discontinuation just in the announcement text as a kind of aside from the looks of it. Seems like not having MPs at all would be the bigger news, but who knows. At the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if Global's announcement was just supposed to be a total copy of this, and they just saw the "MP will be discontinued" bit and just decided to gloss over it. Wouldn't be the first time.
