  1. inb4 someone complain that Justice Crow still have shit DPS because it won't fall instantly to the ground and still can't beat PBFwingsnatch spam.

    1. Falling to the ground at a slightly delayed point is "reduced mobility" after all xD

    2. We're referring to the "and relaxed the timing of descent" of the buff. Last time Sega did something like that (for Rangers, who need it to maintain standing snipe) somebody, not gonna name names, started complaining that it's a loss in mobility and a nerf in disguise.

  2. It's good thing SEGA update lots content these few months, but at the same time I think it's a bad idea update tons 15* weapon in short time.

    SEGA, take a break for a while to update new 15* weapon, don't rush too fast.

    1. Well, much like the 13 and 14 stars after some are just weaker filler incase you can't get the big ones, also,, sega isn't likely to make any of them outshine lightstream and atlas anytime soon, we're already starting to see "junk" 15 stars, like with the new EQ gives. i mean wth am i going to do with that 15 star sword if i already have lightstream one? Only bad thing is you can't recycle them just yet.

  3. sega fix expert mode unlock or riot

    yes im still that irked that we have to go through hell again to unlock it

    shd have just left the unlocked expert mode unlocked for everyone who went through it but no, new director wants us all to go through hell by doing 2 stupidly hard conditions and expects everyone to play like its bloody dark souls 3 on 1 hit and die mode
    (hecc, i work 18 hrs a day, you expect me to not sleep and spend all my XQ tickets trying to do it UNDER 15/18 minutes? mr new director the eff man we all got a life to run)

    you know what, imma pay someone to do it and say f you to sega. if they wanna make us go through hell, no thanks. idc if i have "no skill" or patience but i dont intend on having to being a masochist who enjoys coughing blood (actual coughing blood) just trying to do xqs.

    1. (@zer0g4ne) riot anyway. they've said that their initial goal is having 30% of its playerbase w/ expert unlocked. they know it's bad, and it's not like there's that big of a difference between expert runs and non-expert runs.

      get good or don't, lol.

    2. hell again? stupid quest? coughing blood?
      seriously what game u try to say? its not even as hard as dark souls…
      literaly i am finish every expert requirement before they annouce it.. and literaly only for the 1st try..
      one salty friend who don believe as if i am afix carried literaly give me his id with afix with that lower than 100 each unit.. and wep only i play it..
      guess what? 1 try all solved…

      its not even random quest called endless quest that need a repeated attempt for the right stage boost/bonus..

    1. That's the UH field after Naberius (together with Beach Wars 2019). After that we will have UH Harkotan and UH Magatsu (alongside seasonal EQ that takes place on harkotan).

  4. I wonder if those minuscule PA boost to braver katana, you know, the ones people don't use, will get people playing the job again, bravers have been very rare lately. even over other jobs that aren't phantom and hero.

    1. Why play gurenlord when you have gurenlord2.0 and edgelord to choose from? So kinda the only Bravers that are left are those they actually like the class.
      And you made me want to know statistic for current boss EQ class usage, sega did a good job weeding out "old" classes, so I wonder how it looks now.

    2. "(…) the ones people don’t use (…)"
      No, the ones shitty Bravers don't use.

  5. >fantasy god outfits
    the slide says "king of ancient egypt" (so, pharaoh) for those, just sayin'… of course it's totally fair to append "fantasy" onto that because those are so devised by the same kind of person that designs yugioh's "ancient egypt" stuff and that's so fantasy it's comical.
    >sub events
    looking at the slide it looks like we're gonna grill loser about this mess. watch him lie or try to avoid the subject.

    epitemia and tishia are certainly viel/dio hunar's weapons. interesting that they decided the blade would be used as a spear.

    >Sharp Shooter: Effect Activation Range Extended
    …starting range or endpoint. knowing sega it cut out before the improved range RA had gained did and I just hadn't noticed.
    >buffing shunkadunka
    I hope they're taking memories of when it was essentially the right move 90% of the time for katana into account and make sure they don't overdo it. I mean, sword's last round of buffs practically turned ignite into that kind of thing (barring points you can't activate it) but that might have still been under hamazaki… yoshioka needs to address that.
    >buffing kazan
    now buff overend, thanks.
    >justice crow's power distro
    wasn't it always towards the projectile's explosion?
    >talk about improving rod's PA power since people found it lacking… but then only go to buff the movement utility and the talis that isn't expected to do damage on it's own
    >but buff rifle three out of four rifle PAs
    um. what. rifle's already at a pretty good spot. I won't say no to the buffs but rod was certainly the one more in need of adjustment… then again, katana needs adjustments to it's PP management/tempo too, so yeah.

    some Q&A notes from makapo:
    blood series is allclass, has built in PAs
    novell series will have a tact, they're also looking to update cookies and candysticks. (looking around I see the tact is noted in video)
    turrets and such in armada don't have drops but still improve drops via point value.
    seems they're looking to do something to make people with gigantic accessories less visually obstructive.
    doing something about the subpalette etc vanishing at times in armada when operator chatter is going on
    going to extend the displayed list in drop record view since UH has so much high rarity stuff that things get crowded out
    they're looking into autopickup for material items as an expansion of having material storage active.
    they're looking to do some tweaks on the evolved pets so that they can have their niches seperate from their lower versions instead of just being outclassed by them.

    1. RE: fantasy god vs pharaoh, I just spotted the video screenshots that said that. sega's not agreeing with themselves, lol. well, I'd still say fantasy pharaoh, whatever.

    2. Reminder that IRL Pharaohs (in common with much royalty/rulers of those times) were considered at least semi-divine already when alive, making the distinction from full-on gods somewhat fuzzy…

  6. rewatching the stream and seems like the buff to shift verbrechen and strafe is talking about increasing the duration, not distance. He stated "bit no seizon jikan (生存期間)" which correlates to survival time or lasting time, thus it should not be distance. He also stated "bai~ ni bai jaku kurai" which correlates to "times~ about two times" so the duration will be increased by about 2 times.

    1. I mean it really depends on how the PA operates. If they extended the "survival time" of some homing projectile Techs this would automatically increase their range since they don't have a max range, just travel speed & "survival time". This is also why Speed increasing/reducing crafts also increase/reduce the max range of techs.

    1. Yeah been having the same problem here and i cant figure if its google messing up or my own credit card/paypal which makes it even more frustrating
      would be nice if a more knowledgeable person gave a heads up

    2. its probably on google side because other foreign games also got the "Not Eligible" when trying to purchase something using google balance,some people also claim they can use a credit card to purchase AC through google play although i cant confirm it because i dont have a credit card

  7. I leave Friends and team, reason I have not Expert so I very hard join their party (EQ or Trigger etc). I'm very cries and tearful. I already very pressure to play Solo P Phantom and Solo Phantom Earth Trigger.

    这样很公平吗? 希望他们这样做吗?

    为了Solo 最难的游戏可以得到S-Rank和得到Expert,让人变成沉迷游戏,玩过到火,太过分了吧,PSO2!!!!

    sry for english, i write up chinese D:<

    1. See….. now 30% players have been recorded to have unlocked Expert Matching, game company problems.

      Sorry I quit Friend and team if WHO have expert, I'm not good mood because peoples have expert.
