    1. As if anyone there with 500 to 800 ping could even participate properly.
      You should worry more about the fact that there will be three to four months of literally nothing worth of showing in such a video.

    2. I might exaggerate a bit, but seeing players constantly blink in the lobby and mpa doesn’t really give any hope. Its one thing to see monsters die retroactively and wait the drops to be registered for pickup, and entirely something else to watch enemies warping away from you in a turnbased arena.
      But cheers to people living closer to jp.

  1. The PVP looks like Sega spent 5 minutes making it, did they even try? Also looks like if you get anything but a rifle / rod you are instantly disadvantaged due to lack of range and PAs not being scaled properly.

    Everything else looks alright though, just hoping no layered matoi wear of every colour of the rainbow.

    1. I mean you still need to get PAs and Techs, much like Challenge Mode, what good is a rod without techs. And who knows, you could get units with high fire resist vs a force that only has fire techs.

      In any case I don’t think it’s meant to be taken that seriously, just a thing for fun.

  2. >innocent cluster at last
    >SG scratch
    ┻━┻ ︵╰( ಠ益ಠ)╯︵ ┻━┻

    less ragefully, who else is suprised that the “dragon” pet is recognisably a dragon(okay, a wyvern, only two legs.), instead of a seahorse (which .jp seem to like calling dragons for some reason) or something.

    1. Hey, at least there’s now an actually worthwhile use for SG beside skipping CF cooldowns. And if the duration is anything like the first one you’ll have like half a year to spin that particular gacha…

  3. ~pvp
    Whelp, Random can stop reloading the page every two minutes to get into a blinding rage every time I post, because uh yeah…this might not kill the game, but it’s definitely a dying stage. So…good bye everyone! 8D;

    1. Good timing, because you will have at least four months to stop being silly and return as if nothing happened.

  4. >pvp
    >in this heavily imbalanced game

    bet your ass everybody gonna pick ranged and turn this shit to cawadudy

    wait, thats actually sound interesting lol

    1. “Unblanaced” is the first excuse bad players usually come up with.
      Video obviously shows that arena mode will have its own rules, stats and available abilities/weapons, similar to challenge mode.

    2. did you actually watch the vid my man?

      all i see is melees getting shrekted by rangers and forces

      check the vid bro, i dont see melees owning shit in that mode

    3. It’s like Challenge Mode where you start with absolutely nothing and have to find gear, techs/PAs and skills to use.

    4. You can’t even pick your class, you “gather” at gathering spots to get a weapon, it’s RNG from what I can tell.

      To succeed in Battle Mode, I imagine you’d need decent understanding of how all weapon types work, as well as their PAs and what should chain together to be most effective. That’s pretty great!

  5. I’ve been hoping forever that they’d decide to put in a team based PVP (because obviously PVP in small numbers would be really broken)

    Even better that they threw in a challenge mode-esque model, that takes care of a lot of the “balance” issues tbh. Everyone who says “IF YOU AIN’T RANGED YOU LOSE” apparently isn’t thinking very clearly about all the skills/PAs available to the melee classes.

  6. Nobody wants to comment on Spread Needle finally becoming a legit weapon, oh wait it’ll still only fire one shot…

    Eternal Psycho Drive I’m amazed they didn’t hold out until 15-star, though.

  7. Afaik Matoi NPC is wearing a normal outfif. SEGA wasted their time to separate it into layered wear so they can screw us over. I’m lookin forward to collect rainbow set from Matoi underwear.

    1. It’s based on the fact that Matoi’s EP4 costume uses 1 file, while layered wear uses 3 files(Ou, Ba, In). When you swap Edel Serin to any layered wear then it won’t show correctly, but when you swap it to Innocent Cluster then it shows fine. Innocent Cluster’s ice file contains the textures/models that a normal costume uses. If you don’t belive me you can check it out yourself.

    2. Ah, file structure. Well it’s not like NPCs fiddle with their outfits in the Salon, and if memory serves its first appearance predates the layerwear system anyway.

      Design-wise, though, after the layers became a thing I never expected it to be anything else once finally available.

    1. The secret phrases were working instantly – the problem is you had until 1:00AM JST to input them in, so if you didn’t get anything it’s because you missed the cutoff.

    1. You connect from america to a server in japan and back which is further than where I connect from (with around 200ms?) with a solid 20ms?

      How???

    2. by lying

      In California with local connections I get about 400 mb/s down and 20 mb/s up, even connecting across the country my ping will go up to 80 or so. Connecting to areas like Japan and Korea my ping will be anywhere from 150-200.

    3. Connecting from Texas, I take 6 hops to pso2 and my ping 40-60. Worst case in PSO2 is 80ms, and that is very rare. 20 ms? Doubt it, but even with my poor house wiring and all the noise on the line I manage 40ms-60ms connecting to PSO2. For a game like ESO it’s 24ms-40ms depending on the time of day and congestion. TERA 30ms-40ms. My home connection is capped lower than it’s theoretical output because of noise @ higher speeds, so no stabilizers that increase ping like “interleaving” or other filters/modifications are needed to the line or node I connect to. I never see ping greater than 100ms on an average day, no matter where I connect.

    4. Also in California, I don’t even get a connection that bad. I mean obviously a ping of 20 is out of the question, but 150-200? Nah. I’m usually somewhere around 50-80.

    1. He’s that unfortunate looking bum wandering around the Cafe. I understand older players have a soft spot for him or smth? ¯\(°_o)/¯

    2. Anri was patrolling shop lobby in ep1-2 in a way where he would pass through the idle player leaving a trail of “Hello” messages in the chat.
      He vanished from shop lobby during third episode I think. It was when people started wondering where he went.

  8. I really dont know where to ask and do appreciate any response(s),
    but does anyone know where/how to get / already have the character models for PSO2 ready for 3d software?

    I love them and it would really help me with what I am doing at the moment

    Thanks♥

    1. I think you can only get non-ARKS models. So things such as NPCs and player characters can’t be extracted because of how they’re modified from a base character and such. Pretty sure there’s some good information though on forums like PSO World.
