The Goods

  • There were only a few enemies on the bingo in the LQ Chaotic City.
  • The Seasonal EQs of Valentine’s and White Day became boring quickly as they were both nearly identical to the previous year..
  • Endless: Eternal Rondo is too broad for solo play.

27 thoughts to “PSO2 JP: Maintenance (06/05/2019)”

  1. I didn't take the survey but it's surprisingly accurate with how I feel about the game.
    I only didn't understand one bit at the end about reselling cast parts.
    You can already resell cast parts. Does this mean head parts? Do people think it should function differently from hair styles?

    1. I wonder if I misunderstood the jp, looking back at it I missed a part of it. Let me fix that.

      Edit: Looking at it again, it should be resell the scratch. So basically revive more Cast Parts, I guess.

    2. Oh that makes sense, thanks.
      Cast parts revivals are far and few between indeed. Another point of the survey I agree with.

  2. what is the next step ? a class who can equip all weapons and use all actions with one button while getting maxed stuff from login stamp and some more low success ability and rare units from impossible farming ?

    1. There are plenty of weapons in this game to use, don't be silly, they just mean more jobs that can use different weapons, fighter alone has 3 weapons that can be used. besides i like the new classes that don't need a sub job, much less hassle to keep it leveled.

    2. People are frustrated that old classes require a lot more effort to compete with new classes.
      Especially something like Fighter or Bouncer, where you constantly need to juggle passives, activate fields/LB etc etc, while phantom and her can just GO at it.
      But then SU exists.
      So I don't think there is any point in complaining really. I just wish that there will be a number of powerful successor classes that cover ALL weapons, so people can just keep using their favorite gear they invested the most into, like knuckles or dual blades.

    1. Assuming it's difficulty instead of just tedium bothering people. Imma aim at not at all.

    2. Literally EVERY person (and I do use "literally" correctly) I have played with said they love the new eq.

      You might want to find a game that satisfies your desires instead.

    3. Have heard virtually no complaints about the EQ, unless of course you can't do more then one run and likely die a lot. then i can see why it bothers you so much, May want to go play mario or candy crush, something that equals your skill level.

  3. Toshi is actually right cuz the eq fucking sucks, its clear that KMR doesnt knows what good game design is. And as a person who played earlier episodes, pso2 wasn't this annoying to play compared to the ep3. Just because you guys play from a distance with RA and SU doesnt mean you guys are as great as you think you are.

  4. Kmr once again proves that he is bad at game design, and this eq is no exception. And cheap deaths isn't good game design, but maybe you should go play Starcraft 2 or ffxiv, basically something as boring as that mate.

    1. So i was right! "cheap deaths" is a clear sign you're dying to nonsense a lot. therfore "EQ is bad!" i didn't expect to actually hit that point, that's pretty sad for you, toshi and ffxvi is even more on the hardcore side for it's endgame then this, you're just die trying on that.

      Like i said, go play candy crush, clearly this game is to hard for you.

  5. Being killed out of nowhere is actually pretty sad game design lol. I miss when hardcore wasnt "treat the game like a job u n00b! :<" but if thats what turns your butterfly on then who am I to say against it. Just because its "hardcore" doesnt mean its gonna be fun for everyone. I mean the hardcore games were stuff like contra and now it just means get obliterated by slow and animations that could pass for a cutscene instead of focusing on tight gameplay.

    1. Have you tried going for a more defensive build with HU or SU subclass? Do you take Defense buff from Team Tree and Deband/Guts campship drink? Do you use Jerky? It's possible to 3x your effective health that way.

      As a TE, I have died only twice so far to lasers (both times because I overestimated the amount of reaction time I have available), and then simply as failed dps check in last section.

    2. Unfortunately i never experienced this "killed out of nowhere" so i can't understand your complaint. Also, you complaint the game is too slow but you still died a lot? Do i get that right?

  6. KMR isn't even active director of ep6. And Yoshioka is fixing literally EVERYTHING that Kimura messed up in PSO2. Slowly, but steadily. PSO2 is in incline, stop feeding this troll.

  7. The Captcha boss is too strong for my will to drop my 2 cents on there. I'm surprised and also saddened that the community didn't push for general improvements with the game.

    These "Advanced Classes" are neat and all, behaving like Dante from DMC but.. I think the free field system needs work.
    Eternal Rondo needs better rewards.
    Challenge Mode needs to be updated and improved. PvP you should be able to go in with friends in a fixed party.
    Most of the game lacks any sort of challenge in the 14* tier and I know they add Mosquito mask for that "Difficulty" factor but I really think they need to take a hard look at how the game is generally approached, and how much power is needed to stomp most of the game's content.

    1. This is an online grinder, it's not supposed to be generally hard or challenging or whatever. There are other franchises for that, like Soulslikes or platformers.
      If you want things to be hard, there are solo quests and triggers for you to beat your own time at, but even that is beyond the scope of the game's genre.

      As for free fields I think they just need to return to the old formula, and add new free field with new enemies and bosses once in a while. It keeps game fresh, it keeps game interesting and it adds to the "endless replayabilty" publishers push with online grinders. As long as it's not gimmicky like kuron or especially earth maps, it's good enough.

    2. If Battle Arena ever get a fixed party option there probably will be more players that against it. It's a game where a lot of it's vocal player is playing solo or PUG MPA. If you want to have fun with your friends, go make a passworded room.

    3. @Max New enemies with the same flat corridor like maps don't keep anything fresh. It's repetitive if any. The E-Trials are samey and the bosses are weak/uncomplex. You're really on a game to waste time if it doesn't oppose you at all. I suppose PSO2 is just something to log in and waste your life away lol I know what the game is designed to do. Keep you there with the easy gameplay and hope you spend someday for convenience.

    1. Ysok promised to update Dual Blades and some other weapon, Rifle I think? To bring them up to the level of other weapons and successor classes.
      As somebody who struggled to get expert reqs with DBs alone I look forward to it, as even inside bouncer class JBs vastly outpace DBs all else being equal.
      I think he mentioned looking at HU as a whole as well.
