I'm glad Elder triggers were taken care of. As F2P with a job and a wife, I already can't spend a ton of time making meseta in this game. Elder triggers would have just inflated everything sky high to where I would basically be PSO2 welfare king. The day that trigger was being streamed and tons of people were doing it, I already lost some will to play the game and did something else because I knew where it would lead.
I don't mind the freedom given to the players when it comes to PAs. Despite your ability to spam certain things on most easy content, it's easy regardless of what PAs you use. On the harder content, they already made sure that spamming that one PA won't get you the win. It's already taken care of. No one wants easy but tedious gameplay where you have to be super involved because you've already used right click too many times, now to hold shift and right click instead. Plus it's rough on your pinky to shift click all the time.
