I don't mind that it's an urgent quest at all, but I do feel like it was advertised as NOT a UQ. They've always talked about UQs as UQs, but up until today it was talked about as just Defense Quest! We need a more descriptive roadmap, I'm happy with the content so far but it did come as a shock to me that it was a UQ.
I do hope that since it's not in some special unique field like the mining bases were in PSO2 that they can refactor these to appear randomly throughout the world too. Like ok you have the UQ version and then you have a trial version that can appear across the exploration zones and you can get some minerals for protecting it or the chance at rares. Make it appear semi-frequently (like if you're in a zone you'd expect to see it once, maybe twice, an hour) and make it a hard trial to protect.
This would turn it into not only just new UQ content, but also new and more difficult trials across the region without too much more development time since the assets are already there.
