Test your holiday spirit against Toy Darkers and frosty Natives in the seasonal [Merry Christmas on Ice 2016] Emergency Quest!

Join some of your favorite NPCs in putting on your merriest Christmas costume to receive a bonus PSE effect during the quest.


The St. Rappies and Noiya Nyau will have new drops to look forward to, like Philodemos and Sky Shine.

    1. After 10 years? But PSO2 will be over in 10 years. They'll be planning for PSO3 on Windows 13 and PS5 because 2027 will be the 40th anniversary 😀

      Well anyway… Good stuff incoming. Huge patches are worth it these times.

    2. I hope so too! But… How many GB will the pso2_bin folder take then? I bet for 250Gb with all the patches and updates 😀

    3. I think probably never, because with all of the outfits involving the fingers, they'd need to re-rig the skeleton to animate the fingers of it… and then you also count in Cast's fingers… that's gonna be so much work for something not so many players care for or even notice. >.< It'd be kinda cool, but unnecessary and I would pity the game artists charged with it.

    4. Not to mention they'd also have to redo roughly every cutscene and animation, ever, to actually make use of it…

    5. In my opinion it's already good to see they made characters/NPC blink. I mean… They didn't blink in the Portables and even Nova except cinematics… (That's a detail too I'd agree)

    6. They have mentioned multiple times before that it creates significant impact on performance, hence kobayashi concert not having finger animation on Vita and ridiculously low poly decorations for either version.
      It will also not going to help at all when most of the weapons have either misaligned grip (launchers), invisible grip (knuckles) or simply handles too big to even hold. Hoverhanding with gesture is unlikely to look better.

    7. You don't have to do any rigging at all ,actually. PSO2's models don't have any rig work put in save for some more outlandish examples. It's usually done with bone volumes. (Each bone has a capsule of verts that it influences, divide the impact between bones on intersection, etc etc.

  1. Don't we already have Gene's card?
    Yup. Could give us someone else SEGA. Just putting this out there but how about Seraphy?

    1. We have, but it's called "fanservice"… x)
      But Seraphy is still here (Except if she've been fired? I haven't log these last weeks). She is near Revelle.

    2. She's probably the only NPC in the lobby to have her text translated. And she sounds very lonely.

  2. on the topic of SGs, I know some of you have wanted easier ways to get them to use on the scratch. Make sure you're trying to run the arks league if so. Its very easy to place while running with MPAs since brackets are split up super heavily.

    1st place is 100 SGs and 2nd place is 50 SGs so you earn a ton pretty easily.

    1. You don't have to be strong to do it, You'll share points with your MPA and chances are your MPA members won't even be in your bracket competing against you.

    2. …and then you get like one Illusia spawn per four-five RQs and make 5th place only because most of your block didn't even participate.

      RNG why ;_;

    3. Sadly yeah, there's certainly some luck involved. You could get 0 Illusia and a bunch of UFOs and trains.

    4. Yeah the league from a few hours ago bugged out.

      They made a notice on their site.

      "We have confirmed the phenomenon that the arcs League 'Riding: High Score' which is scheduled from November 29 (Tue) 1:00 does not occur and we are investigating."
