  1. Oh no, does this mean we have to keep listening to the Sakura Wars theme in the lobby? I used to like that song, at least the original game's version. But now that I've heard it 10,000 times in the lobby, I'm getting pretty sick of it lol. I'm counting down the seconds until we go back to default lobby music or get a new event with its own music; anything to replace what it is now.

    1. Not a bad song
      But its really short so after a while it get tiresome
      Why haven't you muted the music tho?

  2. why the heck are they extending this, did they really have their next content update so closely tied to the next scratch they had to delay it? someone at least tell them to bring back the other 2 scratches that just expired, the gyaru one in particular only had a week by itself and barely got much notice since it overlapped with the nier and sakura taisen ones, and i think even the upgrade scratch
