@Milk said in SG cosmetic "sales" and the current state of SG.:
I just wanted to chime in with my two cents. I’m a whale and I’ve played MMO’s for many years. I love cosmetics, PSO2’s being no exception.
I will never pay for SG, not in a million years. There’s no incentive.
I don’t like feeling pressured with these BS 24hr windows. I don’t like the way Fresh Finds has been handled. The one item I wanted was the maid outfit that was skipped over, I still have the earned SG waiting for it if it comes back.
The AC loot boxes in this game are the best I’ve seen, absolutely top notch. They’re not littered with trash items, I had a fair shot to get costumes/emotes I actually wanted, plus that guaranteed drop ticket after so many tries. All the stuff I didn’t want? I sold it and used the profits to get the last few items I still wanted and the game is generous enough to let me share across my account!
The SG scratch? What am I supposed to do with an item I can’t resell or even wear? Why would I pay money for this? The price of SG is also absurd to me. My dollar goes further elsewhere.
If I don’t feel something is a good value, I’m not buying it. The JP version looks like they’ve handled SG a lot better.
I kind of feel the same. SG scratches cost twice as much as the AC scratches per dollar and with a high chance I'm going to get something I have little or no interest AND its impossible to resell I'm just not going to buy any. At $4 a pull if you buy gems and a chance so high of getting a untradable dud I'm just going to save my SG for fresh finds. Hopefully its more AC scratches and less SG in the future because I can NEVER see myself buying an SG scratch. Which is a shame because some of those items in the SG scratches that I personally want probably don't rank high on others lists. So instead of buying 2 or 3 tickets and hoping for the best and trading for the worst nobody gets anything.
