@plamplight said in Who is the true problem?:
I'll just be honest with you, the true problem is the Block 2 players.
ouch sometimes b1 is full! haha
Localization engineer and former conference interpreter for Japanese and Korean (as my A-B languages respectively) specializing in healthcare. Also a scanlation hobbyist! Fellow language-learning lovers, hmu 😁
Grind for hours and hope for a couple of 13* items to sell / use?
imo that's about it haha but then again I just don't find much else very entertaining...that's just me lol farm, sell, fashion -- that's the cycle I've been following since May D'8
For some classes, correct positioning and dodge timing is a bit more strict on Lilipa. Plus, while ultimate farming you'll probably end up spending loads of time per run, so braindead farming is just easier on Naverius haha
Couple days ago there were some weird networking issues for me as well, but I'm not on Xbox
In a couple ultimate runs, the game lagged and froze the same way as if I was about to get disconnected, but it just stayed in that lagging position for a few min. Then everything started going back to normal and 7 of the 12 people left the run haha including two of my friends that say they got disconnected.
This happened twice that day
My friend swears by Tech C Parry, and I totally agree lol. With a bit of practice in good positioning, you can get your techs off pretty easily against most things. Hunter's Physique is nice, but I'd learn to rely on that ring haha since there may come a time where a Hu sub isn't as good.
A good positioning trick for melee techters is dash attack after zondeel (dash to a better/safer spot, then attack in the enemy direction) so you can get some good thwomps in for another zondeel cycle. Actually, I guess it's not really even a trick, more like a survivability maneuver lol
I totally get you with regards to the aggressive/childish behavior part. While I haven't personally had such experience in this game, I know a few that have had their bouts with elitists, trolls, and others lol
Let's not forget, however, that it's really just some person with a little too much time on their hands on the other side of the screen. It's not like they can attack you directly haha. Sure it may hurt a bit at first, but it's something to be expected from an online game
Just walk away from that nonsense--like, what are they gonna do, message you to death?
We've all been there haha I dunno anyone who doesn't upgrade at least their weapons though... I can't imagine that this is a common thing? especially in XH urgent quests.
but ya, XH Luther is a pretty easy duo--you don't even need "good" gear lol. Last we tried, I played Bo/Su and had rays with only +100 melee and +8-11 pp each (+35 slave dual and nem boots, no notable affixes), and my friend used Saiki with I think like +150 or more tech and stuff.
I'm a pretty casual player, so I've only affixed one good weapon for Br, but I always jump around classes while my friend only uses her crazily affixed wand and thwomps haha. I'm pretty sure most people grind their weapon to at least +30, cuz it'd be pretty hard to work towards a 13* with like an ungrinded Deo...lol
Gonna be a nerd and compliment your formatting, grammar, phrasing, etc. because that made it an easy read lol
Regarding the matter at hand, I really do agree we should all just try to enjoy what we have for now and get along, and that comparing the two versions of the game has really done more bad than good. However, even with PSO2 NA as my only real experience with the game, I still feel like there's nothing to do except grind ultimates or casino coins nowadays; so while I don't have that "missing content" feeling, I definitely have that "wow, there's really not much to do in this game" feeling
And even then, I'll only get a drop once a week in ultimates if I'm lucky haha
lol did you just say "testicular fortitude" ngl, gonna be hard to sympathize with someone that references another person's genitalia in an insult. Especially since I've been victim of the exact same situation with actual trolls several times haha
Anyway, party leader can always force all members into a new run even while they're looting or not yet on gateship, so I don't see why you were kicked. I've met my fair share of impatient people a while ago, but nowadays in random parties, my party leaders wait for everyone to return to ship before initiating a new sequence.
Unless it's a once-only quest, in which case if it's already completed the party leader can leave without forcing everyone back to lobby, right? lol
Because you can still be forced into a new run, no one should be kicked for being a slow looter. Missing drops because you're not yet used to the menus or forgot to store stuff from the last run is punishment enough imo haha
and it doesn't actually add them to blacklist lol
The NA version has a blacklist function? Since when?
Dunno if it even works anymore, but it was a really bad way to totally ignore people haha. If you whispered /bl to someone it would add them to your blacklist, and you'd never be able to see any of their messages ever again. It was really only good to use on bots imo because it seemed permanent lol...y'know, since we have no way to access this blacklist
