  1. "Due to the corona virus, let's suspend the one shop that costs no money, the only one where you can get free shop tickets, all the other ones that do need to be paid are fine though"

    Oh noes. I can see the virus would affect this one particular feature of the game that costs no money to do.

  2. waiting 6 days till refresh for Ability transfert pass exchange and bye pso2 . coming back when there is something to do.

    Rip FUN scratch.

  3. Hah, you cannot too rely Visiphone, if without FUN Scratch and 3 Days Shop ticket. You too lazy do Daily Quest and Yerkes's Quest, never can get many Meseta.

    PS: I still can get meseta everyday, I handwork doing Daily Quest and Yerkes's Quest lol

    1. No free shop ticket = Less People selling = Everything will be extra expensive.

      There will be a point where doing daily missions and COs will not be enough.

    2. Freemium players can't sell at all so the market can skyrocket their prices.

    3. You need extra characters more than 3 all leveled past 50 to make this feasible in my opinion it takes weeks of farming those to get enough meseta to buy most stuff with only 3 characters i feel especially bad for those who have female characters cause literally everything is overpriced

  4. Hey, how do you convince SEGA to bring out an update to show you what music disc you have already registered?

    1. Considering that they are registered per-ship, rather than per-character, I don't think you can, as it sounds like unnecessary hurdle to code. Not to mention they can be registered to team room as well.

    1. Most likely not, given that the JP version is still years ahead, and many players aren't even sure if the NA one will survive.
