I don't like battle passes, they've been really shady about PC, the gamepass stuff was an absolute clown show and they still haven't been clear about certain details regarding the rewards, the degree of communication we've been given has been really lacking in favor of playing the friendly brand on social media and the actual content available is a weird and inexplicable mish-mash that leaves much to be desired (seriously; darker nest is the only decent emergency mission, and chrome is flat out the worst). The game is rated M17+ but they've taken out items that were deemed to risque, the translation is super inconsistent even when it comes to referring to the same item or skill name within descriptions. Item descriptions as a whole are just kind of gone, they've let blatant cheaters and gold sellers run rampant for an entire week without showing any sign of actually doing anything about it.
I could keep going on - but what I'm trying to say is that as much as I like PSO2, and as glad as I am to see it actually get a global release, it's been a pretty poor showing. The best idea they had to improve the game, the fresh finds shop, is hilariously hampered by the fact that it puts such a heavy drain on the star gem economy, you can only purchase each item once (at least let us buy them twice for ticket use reasons) and now you can't resell them - and apparently you were never supposed to be able to resell them but they just kind of decided to let that slide for a while.
But you know, the shifty guys selling infinite recycle badges were fine to let go for ages and now everyone has a few hundred recycle badges each. That's real cool.
So no. I don't think I'm going to be buying AC, or premium, or even the xbox gamepass after this. I still haven't gotten my gamepass rewards. And it's really lame they're not letting the people who couldn't get the codes for the first batch, get those first rewards. They keep making mistakes and punishing the legit users for them.
If this is the way paying customers feel, then imagine how free to play players are going to feel about this game
