Before the update the game had 5k players on Steam, after the update the game have now 7k players (From 59K the day of his release to 7K players yeah). Only the true fans still play NG that why people aren't revolting. This number will drop again to 5k and probably below, Pso2 had the same playerbase before, it's sad to make a new game and can't make news players to stay, i log in just to get my rewards and leave.
I would like to see the satisfaction of actually feeling powerful. Having the best gear and the best weapons, mobs seem to adjust to players levels and remain tanky. It's frustrating to say the least, Since we only have limited gear, There really isn't any other way to surpass them.
OMG THIS ! What i like about base pso2 is the feeling of power like a true action rpg should feel. You pop on a map you one shot / two shots everything in your way, you kill the boss in 15sec and next maps you have no time to get bored. Combats feels too slow on NG and you have 0 feeling of power, on base pso2 i liked to farm / grind, on NG it's so boring i come just to do my daily / weekly and i leave.
Also Gilver Redgrave +1.
The only reason why numbers have fallen just a little is because it summer time and people are doing summer time stuff. This happen to every game around this season. So please stop the doomsday announcements.
Yeah sure it cause of summer lol keep telling you that. This game have no content why people should play it right now ? Also "number have fallen just a little" yeah sure
In less than a month -80% players and you call that "a little". When a compagnie make a new game the point is to make a game who generate more money than the previous game, when most players leave your game one month after his release you can call that everything you want but its far from a success. Is New genesis a failure ? Right now ? Yes, BUT if SEGA do something about the content it can be better. Cause right now looking at the roadmap i see no point to play this game, maybe in 2 / 3 years. You can't deny that, the game have 0 content, turning around on a map poping pse burst it's just boring, Gigantix ? Done that for the SG and that it. What most players do right now ? Daily / Weekly, AFK emote in city and... That it. For theme park mmo players most mmo around have 2500% more content than NG. "Yeah but NG is not an mmo i just want quick combat and looting" go play warframe or destiny ( even if i'm not a fan of destiny) "yeah but i want some waifu" go play Genshin impact, you can find way better than NG easily in term of content. Just play something else and come back when NG have more content than 1 big empty map with 3 small area where you turn around. Also the lack of content is probably the point who come back the most in every forums even on Steam.
He got a point actually and i think most people should watch this video talking about whale in mmo and how it work :
@Blade-Syphon Steam is the most popular plaform for pso2 global actually, everybody hated the microsoft store version and most people linked their version with Steam asap. So we have the epic store... And all the 25people who use that version and the Xbox players. Now FFXIV has his own launcher ( very good one and not buged like the microsoft store version of pso2) way before he finish on steam (something like 1years and half and most people prefer the base launcher).
Pso2 was a niche game it will be the same for NG (right now this game have 0 interest for theme park mmo players, cause this game have no content) i will not be surprised if the playerbase will drop below 10k within two month. Also the last japanese broadcast got a lot of dislike from the japanese players i wonder why.
What happen if you equip the three gigantics units (All Ailment Resist -50%) ^^:
