I figured this would be the next response. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed.
I've been investing in this game via premium subscription since it's NA launch. Clearly, Sega would have little to no interest releasing NGS without the temptation of profit. Thus, all profits made from the base game were without a doubt a driving motivation.
Now let's be real here. What we've received here isn't a complete product, nor was it properly tested prior to release. I'm not going to write an essay, but if you were to say you're pleased with the way things have been going, I don't know that I'd believe you.
Also, don't be afraid to support a project you invest heavily in time-wise. But when problem after problem occurs, it's difficult to justify continuation of funding. I don't believe in any way I'm in the wrong for my less than pleasant experience thus far.
Problem after problem? A weather issue that was fixed in 2 days? Besides the launch lag, everything else has been great. Gigantics even with the weather were great. Countless 32 man groups. Good gear. Easy to farm. Can grind all day or an hour. If it’s not that pleasant for you then take a break. Play Genshin. Play FFXIV. Play anything else. You’re not forced to buy premium. You’re not forced to do any of that. It’s a new game. You knew well in advance how it would be. Content wise it’s exactly what they said it would. Down to the cap. The scratches. The announcements. Gignantics update.
Shit happens. Base PSO 2 had far worse issues than this has had so far minus that first week. Nothing that severe has happened besides the first week. They didn’t wait til next week to do this maintenance like they could have either. They’re fixing it now. Shit takes times. It’s also GLOBAL. Things have to come out all at once. Between 2 countries blah blah blah. It’s not even to say the fault is with the NA side either.
PSO 2 lasted 10 years. They’re doing something right.
