I guess we wont see any in depth discussion outside of reddit then.
Converse with fellow players
@Riesz Yeah, it's a little weird. I guess it may be a little bit difficult when you are trying to scale mountains and jump from platform to platform in cocoons but other than that I can't really see it being too bad.
In the dengeki interview Arai mentioned that it used to be faster in the earlier build but they changed it because it became difficult to control.
Imo they should crank up the speed a little more at the very least. Also give movement PAs more range. Right now it's really short and if you use them out of their short range you just attack normally without actually moving.
@HermitST Yes, I was looking on the bright side.
PSO2's monetization was already like a mobile game tbh. They were already putting certain emotes behind a paywall in the scratches they were releasing. The main difference in NGS is that they decided to tell f2p players to get stuffed.
@Prancing_Cat Yeah, it's pretty bad. The good news is it's over 1 month and the 2 upcoming scratches will likely put you over that amount if you spend as they are pretty appealing.
@AngryRhombus563 Which is why it's still dropping for those items. It's not going to be comparable to JP because they haven't had money printed since launch like we have. We have way more money in circulation. Our baselines are way higher than theirs because of what people are willing to purchase at and people sticking to small undercut increments is why it takes so long to reach lower prices. This influences the prices people scratching sell for.
NA just has too many cheaters contributing to the problem.
@AngryRhombus563 Supply is moving though. Obviously way slower compared to the first day or 2 and it depends on the item. Lealu hair is 1 example of something that is still selling at it's current prices. Most who have ample money get their stuff in the first 2 days of a scratch releasing. That's when things fly off the shelves. People are still buying at these ridiculous prices clearly illustrating that there is some demand still. There's absolutely no reason to drop the prices drastically as items become coveted once out of rotation. That's thanks to Sega's design.
I noted down some of the changes to stock and prices that occured from a small selection of items from the recent scratch over about a 8 hour period.
Lealu hair- 29 listings to start. Dropped to 26, no price change. Rose to 30 listings with 2 listings of 3.5mill from 4.5mill. 3.5mill listing sold. Rose from 29 back to 30 with base listing of 4mill.
Taure hair- 24 listing to start. Dropped to 22, no price change. Rose to 23 listings with 1 listing of 3.6mill from 4.4mill. Back down to 21 listings with base listing of 4.6mill.
Servante Lealu- 46 listings to start. Dropped to 44 listings with 1 listing of 540k from 900k. Further drop to 43 listings with base listing of 900k.
Marine Taure/b2- 41 listings to start at 1.5mill. Dropped to 38, no price change.
This is only over a small period of time well after the main 2 day rush has already happened yet prices are still moving and selling at these ridiculous prices.
@dalamar I'm sure JP has people who hoard and sell items out of rotation. They just don't have the absurd inflation we have.
@Star-Platinum I think once they've finally released all the classes they want to we'll probably start getting more content overall.
I think a lot of players wanted to play the class they fell in love with from PSO2. So class releases have become the priority.
