@Scerms77 You’re right. It isn’t a conspiracy that Sega manipulates their f2p base. Especially those who didn’t get to play when Meseta rates were golden on Xbox and are new to the game. It’s actually just kinda blatant instead... Literally every Alliance I’ve ever been in has always talked about how their largest earnings were off ignorant new players not being fed info by JP players. A lot of them also spent triple in price on Xbox Exclusive Items that’s should never have been exclusive to begin with so there’s yet another undeserved advantage- and don’t say “cosmetics aren’t needed” when we’re playing a game advertised for its character creation and gear is being speed run because they just want to get to NGS and make more money. There is actually no viable or legitimate reason for the game to be as butchered as it is- but it’s nice to know that everyone is just “butthurt for no reason.” Not like player count is dropping or anything. Nah everyone is wrong but you...
Like cool I am happy you all are enjoying the game. I honestly don’t have any ill will towards the community anymore even despite my toxic experiences with it on ship 1. But stop acting like these people are just mad for no reason.
FF Shop items cannot be purchased on the PShop to stress players who just happen to have insufficient SG into a daily purchase. Accessories need to be used twice unlike JP for no apparent reason other than greed. Many players are also turned off by the grind and how it’s being sped up to meet this artificial and very arbitrary NGS date which can literally just be delayed for Global and give the people looking for more time- just that. Instead we’re rushing for no reason with everyone being handheld by JP players raking in Meseta hand over fist and bombing the market value because they’ve done it all before. I hear this laughable reason that MSRP prices for this game are so high and there are so many paywalls and content rushed because they “need to for NGS money” but that also doesn’t make sense. This game is one of Sega’s highest grossing IPs overseas and that’s even including titles like Persona. The argument that they’re rushing the game and making us pay more for a game they have already been WELL into development sounds like a lie. Purchasing extra characters for Meseta is also a dead method as inflation has gotten so bad that weeklies are actually NOTHING in terms of income. If one Meseta has been cut in half then each character is ACTUALLY only making through weeklies about 1.1M and the suckers who maxed characters for Meseta Mules got scammed.
TL;DR - People complain about this game for a reason. It isn’t the perfect little gacha grinder you think it is. This game has players making a killing exploiting what other players don’t know and it’s done to where anyone who has personal responsibilities, has to suffer. They aren’t butthurt for no reason. They just aren’t like you and want to play differently. Kinda why a lot are quitting to more varied MMOs rather than just killing the same 5 Falz Characters again and again and again for months, with only like one extra move and a slightly different model.
