The 300,000 credit limit is a real problem. In pso2 you don't have credit limit, but you can't sell any thing to players. However, you can buy any thing you want and no limitations of any kinda in terms of character progression. I guess it's much like Tera's free to play. Oddly, my sub ran out yesterday and I can still post.

I tried pve, but didn't really last more than two weeks. It's just boring like wow end game pve, which I done too many times. It's also very annoying gearing up a new character like wow that it started to feel like a second job having to log in every day to make any meaningful progression unless you want to take months gearing one character. I can't stand waiting for the pve queues. From the time the game launch up to 2.0 I only did pvp and never really felt gearing up my character was tedious because it was fun. Running the same dungeons and operations is not fun. It's boring after the first couple times. They are exactly the same each and every time and aren't challenging. Yesterday I wiped like 4-5 times with each attempt lasting 15-25 minutes on a boss for my subclass quest in pso2 and it was frustrating fun. On my last attempt I finally killed it and gotten really good using wire maces.

I don't know just the whole idea of going through the same nonsense I went through in wow, trying to find a guild, gearing up to run raids, sticking to a stupid raid schedule each week, having consumables, spending lots of gold on repairs and other expensive is not worth the hassle and time sink.

As for pvp, it was fun prior to patch 2.0, but as is the case in wow, each time the level cap is increased pvp becomes unbalance or broken. Swtor is no exception and I don't see pvp being casually viable any more. It's not the same type of pvp that exist prior to 2.0, which is why I haven't bother with it.

I know it probably won't happen in mmorpg, but for once a mmorpg company should release expansion that don't increase the level cap, but that add content only. Increasing the level cap is a cheap way of making content last longer or to keep subscribers subscribed longer.

I'm pretty sure preferred players can't post on the forums, but only subscribers are allowed.
Then just stop playing and practice your German elsewhere. No one uses a product they don't even like...and if they do they have bigger issues. I don't like playing CoD, so I don't play it.

I would have thought that . if they had time they would learn Japanese and play PSO2 , I know i would , but they have to learn German and wait for the delayed Western release of the game. SEGA being tight lipped about it is annoying.

Cheers,

Of course what people really want is more for their sub fee. Who wouldn't? But companies don't give more value for the money just because some customers ask for it.

I saw the same behavior on the LotRO forums:
"VIP (subscription) does not provide enough value!"
"Then drop to Premium (Preferred)."
"Premium has too many restrictions!"
"Then stay VIP."
"VIP does not provide enough value!"
Etc, etc, etc.

Only subs can have 22 characters. And tbh, that and unlimited warzones is enough for me.
There is a face beneath this mask but it's not me.
