    1. What do they do exactly during these “server equipment”? I was wondering lat time too but didn’t want to bother with a question.

    1. Sorry to ask but where do you find it actually? I’ve done XH Naberius, Level-Up and Regiment of the Wicked all XH several times but didn’t catch any. And I still need some of it….

    2. Are you using boosters? Each of the E-trial boss spawns in the Kuron XHEQ should drop a gold badge, bordering 90% of the time.

    3. Oh alright… I didn’t try it on XH or just once and didn’t use a Boost just in case of (I don’t have many 250% left so better not throwing it away).
      So except a mistake there’s a week left to do it… I’ll try after maintenance, thanks.

      (Nice E-Trial name, Neria :D)

    4. There are some Emergency Trials I just ignore, like Arrest and Rescue.
      Whats the point in (Rare) Rappy Capture (they don’t drop) and Lilipan Rescue is just wasting my time. I’ll just hit the Gilnas aaaaand I am done. Lili~ *boom*
      E.Trial: Protection (Airship Defend) can be exploited by killing some enemies and then running away, so the enemies despawn.

    5. Max Attack 2015 was like Emergency Code: IGNORE and I succeeded.
      I own 2 bronze and 6 silver badges. nothing more.

    6. It’s not about Being worth it or not per say, but there’s no point in not getting them if you have enough badges to do so. I was not able to obtain them when the event first came along so when I do manage to get 600 I will be attribute grinding one of these to 60%

    1. They should really have made an “Rachel Alucard” Costume.
      Too bad, they only made costumes for the BlazBlue Characters everyone goes “HGNNNN” .
      Ragna, Jin, Noel, Mu and…. IZAYOI? Izayoi, more like IZ YAOI?
      Where is the “Rachel Alucard” Costume? How about “Taokaka Suit”, nya? “Platinum The Trinity”? *random male character here*
      I wanted the old Noel Variation plus her Beret, but what did I get? “Relationship Upgrade Noel with added Evangelion Headgear”

    2. Azrael costume above all others. This game needs manlier outfits. They keep sneaking in these gender bend costumes like they did with the last AC scratch, and it really makes my stomach churn every time I see a new one being released. Is SEGA is trying to turn the already endangered male character population into trap cross-dressers? I swear…

    3. what sells in japan is priority. we all know we shouldn’t be playing this game to begin with. our likes and opinions are not a factor to what they release. remember it’s a japanese server to begin with.

      you should start changing japan populace tastes first. good luck with that.

    4. someone’s pretty insecure of themselves. i was personally quite happy with the last scratch, and i would argue that there isn’t enough gender-neutral outfits! the fact that sega releases such things now-and-then doesn’t mean that they’re “sneaking” in stuff just to annoy you. if those type of outfits don’t fit with your taste, that’s perfectly fine, but that also means you shouldn’t expect everyone else to share your preferences.

      …also, the supposed endangerment of male characters are due to the players themselves. it’s should be well-known that most of players are male users on female characters.

    5. It’s not a factor of insecurity. It goes with what the guy above you said. Commercialism. It’s what about maximizing profits based on what the majority wants. Japanese people and other people who are part of the majority apparently like being female and like wearing female clothes and accessories. I’m also well aware that there are people out there–like you–who want outfits that make them appear to be less gender specific (which, by the way, I don’t see the gender neutrality in a guy wearing a skirt with knee high socks and a half shirt but whatever floats your boat). You shouldn’t just blatantly say someone is insecure just because they want to wear something that would define their character. I’m simply expressing a fact that there aren’t many manly outfits to begin with due to males being lower in population, as well as stating my own opinion–like how you feel about there not being enough gender neutral costumes–that it would be nice if there were outfits that would appeal to the minority I belong in. Of course, that won’t happen because I’m the minority and anything we say is going to be shutdown by commercialism and/or disapproval by the majority. Also, I’m sorry if I hit a little too close to home with my earlier comment about gender bent costumes making males look like trap cross-dressers. I mean, I thought all I did was point out the obvious.

    6. if you didn’t want someone to see you as insecure, then you may want watch your wording more closely.

      “They keep sneaking in these gender bend costumes…and it really makes my stomach churn every time I see a new one being released.”

      it’s difficult to see how having an issue with the commercial aspect of PSO2 would elicit a stomach-churning response. it’s more natural to have that response due to disgust. so, no, it was not a blatant of me to see you has insecure. the wording of your post indicated a specific sense of hostility/disgust, so i responded.

      does that mean i disapprove of your preference? no. not in the slightest. male characters are certainly a minority in pso2, but that’s something beyond your control– people are free to play the game as they want. having such an issue with that fact only serves to needlessly bring yourself stress.

    7. Oh, I get it. “Insecure”, the fear-of-threat definition . In this case, fearing SEGA’s continuing efforts to decapitate the already lack-of-masculine products for the male gender and causing him too much discomfort to further enjoy the game. What a stupid word. Much like “ignorant”.

      Blatantly accusing someone of an adjective by someone that doesn’t even know them well will always come off offensive, because often we’ll take said adjective to a literal. (Call me ignorant and I will take it as you calling me ‘stupid’.)

      But c’mon, man… don’t you think you took Lingus’ words, yourself, a bit too literal? ^^;; He’s only made ONE of these ranting comments, after all. Is it really safe to go about accusing them of being so paranoid so soon? I personally wouldn’t think so.

      None of his reply came off as ‘sicko’, to me, enough to warrant oral abuse.

      What it does look like, though, is you were offended by what the guy said in the rough format he decided to word it. And so you decided to take negative actions of your own, even though you’ve already said you’re unaffected.

      Keyword: look. But I’m not gonna go around pointing it out blatantly, as I don’t fully believe it. There’s just not enough supporting evidence.

    8. Extreme maculinity in Japan goes hand in hand with gay vibes.
      And contrary to the popular belief, people mostly play female characters because they like girls, not because they want to associate themselves with the character. Its like thinking fig collectors and doll costume tailors are trans and want to be like their dolls.

      But leave it to western playerbase tying everything to gender politics and having their “stomach churn” from a digital female dress.

    9. it’s basically like this. i’m a straight guy but i rather be playing a girl chara’s ass than stare at a guy’s ass 24/7.

      even if the availability of masculine male stuff are above girls options, i’d still play a girl chara given the option. because i’d rather not stare at a guy’s ass.

    10. I like girls, but I don’t necessarily want to play a girl character. But apparently the type of character you play has something to do with your sexuality, and wanting more masculine costumes is apparently not a good thing to bring up in a game ruled by “straight men who like to play as girls.” This topic has gotten way too deep than it needed it be. All I did was express an opinion for god’s sake lol.

    11. i’m pretty sure it wasn’t your wanting of more masculine clothing options that earned you attention, lingus.

  1. I don’t know what to make out of this!
    I am gay and i have with both male and female characters on pso but when i play fighting games i chose to play with female characters cause i find em more sexy! That does not mean that i want to be like them! I see lot’s of straight guys that play with girls and man they spend more time on dressing their female characters on a saloon than a girl in the real life spends to dress up for a date! I main a male character on pso2 cause i associate myself with him (i am basically him) not cause i like to watch his ass! But this is just a game and people should play it the way they want to play it without judging others! Can’t we all be friends? 😛

    1. the thing is that some people find it difficult to understand that people have different expectations and perspectives of their angle of play. some people see their character as just a character, caring little more than wanting to have it be pleasing to look at. others see their character as an avatar, a representation of themselves in the game world. and even these can change on a case-by-case basis depending on the game.

      i think it would be better if we collectively did away with the mindset of expecting the masses to share our opinion, particularly on essentially cosmetic elements. and we should stop shaming others for having different preferences.

    2. All of this from shitty costume choices… Heh… Ah, take my critique with a grain of salt. My char doesn’t look right in certain outfits because she has the physique of a female body builder 😉 Wouldn’t change it for the world though since I like the fact I HAVE options. I agree we should keep an open mind though. No point in pushing our expectations onto others.

    3. To be honest I use more time making female chars (up to 2 hours depending on the choices of the char creator) to match them the image in my head. (SInce Makeover passes cost money instead of getting them each 2-3 weeks right now) Unless everything fits, I don’t click “create” or “accept changes”. Back in the days of PSO, I have even written a biography for all my chars.

  2. So… I’ve finished the Ep3 Chpt.6 just now and… Please tell me I missed something and there’s a following… Now, not in six months. Or does it really ends like that? “She” disappeared, we wake up in the Medical Center and that’s ALL? Damn it makes me think so much of Vivienne in PSP. So many sad memories. >_>

    1. Oh, so it’s part of the patch, got it.
      I guess it will be the last Chapter (Plus a EX chapter) before Episode 4… I hope it will be good to play.

      Anyway, thanks. 🙂
