I am glad New Genesis economy will be resetted and be a completely new thing.
Converse with fellow players
@LapisWave Interesting. How do you know it's because of the VPN? Although it could be, it seems this recent wave of bans were for RMT and player activities involved with duping items and money.
If you read carefully below at the news about banning people at pso2 main site, they do mention about using other peoples account suspicious activity, which relays to VPN abuse where the staffs might think that you are giving other people to login to play your account.
So many people wondering why they got banned for buying meseta. I'm sitting here like how are y'all this slow? It's against ToS, and it's actually a criminal offense that gets game comapnies in trouble for tax evasion. Has anyone here actually played an online game before? This is nothing new...
I had two people I know who got banned permanently for using VPN and didn't get involved in RMT. So this whole purge is really not just RMT atm. Its really to make sure no one does anything suspicious and use third party programs that violate TOS really.
@Morgothryuzaki said in See ya'll on New Genesis:
But frankly I don't care to start that discussion again,because all the PSO2 fanboys and XIV haters are going to show up,and I ain't willing to open that can of worms again.
It's okay. I've seen plenty of WoW players accepting that their games have ups and downs as FF14 players never accepting criticisms. But that doesn't change that PSO2 players can't accept criticisms too.
My friends are taking a break from this PSO2 and waiting for NG because they feel that the RNG system in this game is just punishing and also doing Ultimate quest just to get 13* to them was boring as to them doing Mythic+ and Savage run being more fun and challenging and rewarding to them instead.
People have their opinions, but yes. I do hope that NG is a bit more friendlier to the people who don't want to be pressured by RNG.
For me, I am taking it easy because I played it in JP and it felt like playing same thing. I am just in this for cosmetics and looks atm.
Is the standard practice still to arrange in-game RP meet-ups via Discord, or do roleplayers now have a block that they can go to and expect to run into other roleplayers?
Yes, we try to meet in discord and people RP in the channel or even in game at certain blocks.
block 1, 2, and 69 tend to give off the vibe that they actually wish they were their characters instead of just playing them
Oh no, we don't like the folks from 1,2, 42 and 69 folks.
We have our own community in the discord and we coordinate well when it comes down to good amount of roleplaying. We try to avoid too much drama folks from 69 and try to stay away from there.
What type of rp does this game attract? Im kinda curious
I'm really not into anime for kids and tea tiddies parties, but Im quite fond of RP, especially mature ones
Depending on the term mature? We have few groups who seek for story driven RPs.
@ApollosAmour The other thread about firing the translators does complete this thread and both are about localization and translations so they go hand in hand and thus can be discussed in both threads.
Its different matter of opinions between me and Leon. Leon likes the translators and want to give them slack. I personally see it differently only because I actually am a manager irl and had seen plenty of crunches to know what consistency and constructive criticism is.
Sure the translators should get slack for the small time they had. But i also feel that they should have done some research before submitting them and proofread them.
I may have sounded harsh on my thread name, but also it clearly shows that the cooperation between SEGA and translator teams made their relations worse as players will start complaining to SEGA and SEGA will just outright never ask this third party company to never partner again. (Maybe. Just 0 rated speculation)
But the other thread exists and it has been quite useful because rhey are fixing them slowly and people are definitely reporting the mistakes.
Both of these threads coexist for their own opinions. I am not gonna say Leon's thread is attacking particularly me, but i am going to be clear about that my opinion still hasn't changed on how translations in this game are extremely still lacking as to JP ones text quality because yes. I am that person who just enjoys reading flavorful text in an mmorpg game. Yes. Unfortunately there are people like me.
I am glad the complaints are being forwarded though. Since its being fixed patch by patch. Even if its slowly.
That's what I am saying. You can get them from Photon Booster shop. And just exchanging these unique stones for 13* are now changed to some 11* weapons that are just from other exchange shop.
If the game doesn't want to give Valkyrie R25 or other Tokyo 13* that were formerly old type, it definitely is inferior to the JP still. Especially when we still didn't get any Orbit series.
We could have even gotten Weapon Camos , but nah. We didn't get them.
They are used. They are exchangeable. You can use them to get the items I listed in my last post.
Again. They arent. They are not exactly same as JP version and no one wants to grab the following items you listed with that screenshot. So yeah, it isn't relevant. And neither people should exchange stones for down quality items.
The stones you get are originally exchanged for 13s. Not 11s and not 12*s.
Idola is official now. Only thing is linking it to pso2 soon.
