@RainGnyu said in SG Tickets are now official. Thoughts?:
I understand what you are implying, but to debate the issues you have to understand a number of factors.
For JP it has always been new content without a comparison unlike the NA version and not to mention culture difference. As an example of this you will find in a now locked thread of Independence Day event.
SG have been attached to AC scratch tickets tradable outfits and daily incentives but sound like it is to much work for the free to play player’s.
Is JP free to play?
I think and have read more about the SG not being tradable more of an issue and other factors as a distraction and misdirection.
1- honestly i find idenpence day event as something good, shows that the PSO2NA staff is capable of doing custom content instead of relying on whats already in the game, maybe the problem of that event is that not everyone here is from the US, we are aware that the game has some kind of region lock to NA but people all over the world are joining in, but getting angry about being exposed to a culture that isnt yours is stupid
2- SG on outfits is a reward for those who actually buys the AC scratch instead of buying the outfit from the player shop using free currency, for the buyer either gives them the SG or makes the item in question more valuable when trying to sell it to F2P players
these are not viable as main method of obtaining SG, in fact almost no one does this on JP, think about it, while you are doing this, you lose the choice of dressing your character as you like because you just are wearing whatever is cheaper
3- yes it is
4- SG is not tradeable on the JP either, making them tradeable is just a solution some people have been suggesting as an alternative to giving us more free ways to obtain them, i don't think it is a good solution since it doesn't solves the problem of the dead side content
