Shut up degenerates. You'd fuck anything if it had a hole. This isn't the place for that kind of talk. We're going to keep this thread Family Fucking Friendly from now on. The TRIPLE F, ya hear me?
Nothing above a PG limited below that dotted line.
ARE YOU GUYS EXCITED FOR EPISODE 4?
Reminder to run your 4 Magatsu's on SH in the premium block so you can guarantee a double dip Sai and avoid having to deal with people like this in your MPA.
JESUS TAP DANCING CHRIST WHAT DID I JUST SAY??? >>127942883 >>127942883 >>127942883
Sega wouldn't do that. The outcry from all of the fujoshis would be too immense. PLUS it'd be unfair to the lads who want a little bit of junk in the trunk naw'mean.
>Zombie dino hunter city looking dumb af imo
Exactly, but it looks so over the top and ridiculous it almost seems fitting by now. They've already gone far and away from the traditional theme and atmosphere of the original phantasy stars. I can't even say it feels out of place now. I'm not expecting it to be great though, I'm keeping expectations low.
That super sanic sprint around the streets looks prty fun too To Be Honest.
Now I`ll keep my newearls away from you.
>Exactly, but it looks so over the top and ridiculous it almost seems fitting by now.
Those were my thoughts exactly, and why I'm getting back into the game now. I'm choosing to be cautiously optimistic about it and the new class and such.
B36 MPAs haven`t been that good as of late. I`ve been seeing some pretty stupid mistakes lately, and the time is on average one minute longer than a year ago.
Are you that guy? Do you JA at all? Do you at least have an idea of what the things on your skill tree do, and why you got them (and as a result, use them when needed)? Do you have more than 120pp?
if yes to any of these but the first, then you're at least better than that guy.
I used to be in MPAs in 36 which downed Sai with about 4 minutes left. The latest ones down him with 1-2 minutes left.
Even 36 SH Magatsu almost gets to the first gate now. Before he never used to even make it to the first turn.
You see B1ians with shitty class combos, low level classes, unaffixed gear, and pot 0 / ungrinded weapons in 36 now looking for a free carry.
I meant second phase times, as long as the first phase ends before it goes full nirvana I don`t even care about the time.
>taking 20 minutes instead of 12
It bothers me, call it whatever you`d like.
Yeah I know, they decide on a different block now to keep the "fun" players away. I just go to 36 every once in a while to see how shitty it has become. It's almost as bad as running it in the actual SH blocks.
You mention it so it watch it.
1st Oh fuck Bio Bow
2nd Oh fuck this guy miss last nemesis on knee
3rd Oh fuck this guys miss again why he not just lock on knee
Yeah it really bad I'm tilting into Magatsu run in next 4 minute now
>ranger miss 3 out of 4 wbs
I get a surprise at every corner here.
I'm surprised sega resisted the urge to recycle this area for an EQ or use it for some kind of alternate abduction.
Yeah in Shit2. That doesn't mean the content is overtuned. It just means that the Ship's full of fucking fun shitters.
This happens in XH on that ship too because of people who don't affix and grind their shit. On top playing fun specs like RA/TE
fuck you spicey
I don't trust u at all
look at u ur ded right at the start
ackshually i am gunslash spec'd, kid
thanks for carrying me part way, scrub
get fuckin rekt unvirgins
Those a friends-only privileges, be glad you`re subject to them.
>not leeching magatsu for exp
its like you play for cubes when the game shits cubes
what are you some kind of fucking stupid dumb head
czech out my axeon while ur busy getting mad lamo
ship 4 get out tryhards
To be honest I'm pretty sure B36 died and has slower runs now because no one gives a fuck about Magatsu the way they did a year ago. Magatsu used to be THE shit to run, it was balls deep, bring your biggest deeps and fotm meme build good fun. But honestly as more stuff came out and stacks upon stacks of cubes started being gathered I know my crew and a lot of others I know just got bored of really going 110% on a quest that we really didn't even like running. The blocks don't even fill up nearly like they used to for Magatsu anymore, and they haven't for awhile.
Wait I'm giving a serious answer, I mean:
Fuck b31 they killed 2ch and b36 runs lol
i took 1 actual minute to loot each time because no space
so somebody who took 20 seconds like a normal person would probably have that time, especially since they'd get in the immediate next mpa :^)
It's not a joke. Try inspecting some people in your Magatsu MPAs if they're an english player. You'll see some pretty stupid class combinations in there along with stupid affixes.
Oh wow, two whole minutes.
It's still less than half the time the EQ is up. Good job, you get the exact same payout potential with marginally less time spent playing a video game.
It's really sad how many people believe b36 is slow on Ship 2. Really shows you how little /pso2g/ bothers to play, and prefers to circlejerk over scapegoats during EQ.
I'll be sure to do that next time Magatsu hits.
I'll be eagerly waiting your terrific 'non cost effective 0/10' and '>not 13*, leech' memeplies.
i should have screenshotted that b36 mpa which 7 rum in it last week where sh magatsu reached the first gate and still wasn't close to dead.
of course you would have made some kind of excuse about how it wasn't their fault.
I have all of them but this dress I want to buy looks like shit with the tattoos. I was wondering if there was some lore loophole or something that would allow me to remove them.
FEW UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM AND MY MACHINATIONS
FOR I ONLY EXIST AS BUT A SHADOW
Post something a friend, team mate or someone you know does that triggers you but you are just too nice to say.
I will start:
>friends in magatsu mpa
Fucking disgusting but I can't do anything because PLAY4FUN XD
SHUT THE FUCK UP. IT'S TIME TO FARM ANGA. ALREADY GOT 5 STONES AND I JUST GOT STARTED.
BLOCK 24 GREAT 4. I'M NOT GONNA TELL YOU HOW TO USE YOUR BOOST, BUT IF YOU AREN'T RUNNING ULTY WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR MISERABLE LIFE? LAMO. ONLY 6 PEOPLE INCLUDING MYSELF RUNNING THIS SHIT, WHAT'S WRONG GUYS, ARES NOT EASY ENOUGH TO GET?
>New earth drops go on a new scale starting back at 1 star
>The new earth 1 star gears all outweigh the current 13 star weapons/11 star units in terms of base stats by at least double
>Compensation is the weapons have no potentials and the units have dex only set bonuses
Only obtainable by gathering Figmas of the cast of the anime that drop like stones do from XH Tokyo enemies/ECodes
Sega is obviously going to take the 12* unit set from SEA just like they did with the admiral costumes and make it our first 12* unit set in episode 4. the 200 atk set bonus will be kept intact as an incentive to get people farming.
Will Matoi exist in Ep4?
Please exist in Ep4.
IT'S OKAY! As quick as it came it's OVER. They just want to do Christmas...right?
WELL WHEN ARE YOU FARMING??? I WANT TO BANGA THE ANGA AND GET HIS KIDNEY STONES.
because people think that japs understand their game more in depth compared to gaijins
this is only slightly true
japanese players also constantly fuck up, you just don't notice them
>630 in the loading tunnel of shaqs
>manage to load in anyway
fuck this game
>this is what erp fags actually believe
every lel, loving it
See here's the thing. You don't need to be good at this game for half the quests, just need some fucking common sense. That's something that your average shit2 weaboo millenian doesn't have, and most JPs seem to have even if they are shit at playing their class.
How hard is it for someone to just follow the train from C1, C2, C3, B3. A3? Apparently very hard for these people, since they just run off the track and spawn shit like Banthers.
These are the same people who just grab every fucking weapon and PA for no reason that people drop at the intervals. Everytime I see a JP get upset that someone took Heavenly Kite, it was one of those english symbol art spamming assholes that took it.
Why can you even spawn Banthers?
Why did Sega not add anything desirable to the Banther drop chart?
These Guruguru EQs are just badly designed if someone can "ruin" it so easily like this.
this is why they should just do those linear runs like easter and winged border breaker. so retards can't fuck it up. even with love day you had retards running to the center and spawning shit in the middle, then just running off.
CAN'T HANDLE THE REALNESS HUH? IT'S OKAY SHIT 2, STAY IN YOUR OWN LANE, I'LL BE HERE UP AT THE TOP. ATOP THIS FUCKING PEDESTAL.
HEY CAN YOU NOT TRY AND IMPERSONATE ME PLEASE? YOU BIG, GAY FAG.
you have to head to 31 redroom, we dont go out and actively recruit anyone
>implying you need to know japanese to understand this trash
>I'm just a normal everyday high school student with no redeeming characteristics or any individuality beyond being "a nice guy".
>School guard decides he is having none of that, let me see your ID you little shit.
>Oh look, it's the ridiculously boring looking plain student council president that is inordinately popular because school idols are totally a thing you guys, don't you love her already.
>Hey, I found my ID. This was all pointless.
>Dude, you got called to the student council room.
>Hey, this is the student council room. We need you to play PSO2, because it's the most popular game in perpetuity, literally everyone is playing it on their edgeless future vitas.
>Okay, my spaz-friend told me things and drew these drawings about PSO2. I'll just sign up on my stupid Alienware computer. Character creation? Fuck that, I'll just hit random. Oh look, it magically looks exactly like me despite it should just be a hideous mess. My friend apparently hates me, because he told me to choose Gunslash, what a dick.
>I am a Cast, and totally not the seitokaichou! I'm a veteran player, that's why I have a fucking 4* launcher equipped!
>Whatever. I'm running off to do City EQ. oh no, I suck at this baby game. But Castman saved me. Okay I now know everything about the game. Here is my report.
>Okay that's nice. We were able to do nothing and put no effort in to the premiere episode. This anime is starting off hot!
Supposedly this is all going to tie in to Episode 4, which really really terrifies me. Next episode has Saber show up with a magic shoulder rappy, so it looks like things will get less slice-of-life, and I guess we'll finally get a bearing on just where the train wreck that will be Episode 4 is going. Options include:
>The game universe was never real, it's always been a game
>Turn the game story into literally just Warframe, we're controlling real people in far off space and don't know it
>Turn the game story into literally just The Last Starfighter, it was all a government plan to recruit people to join real life ARKS
>Somehow both our universe and the PSO2 universe exist, and we just happen to have a game that is an exact microcosm of their universe, what are the odds
>PSO2 is just filthy ARKS propaganda
No matter what, I have the feeling I will have to refer to Episode 4's story as "a bad Voyager episode".
and now it's immortalized for later use in the collage of shit this anime will be.
If it really upsets you, Takeuchi, I could call her Ruler instead.
I just want her voice
Will we get voice tickets
I am trying to make t-atk units without spending a lot of money.
>oh god this is actually hilariously awful
It really isn't. It's actually completely unremarkably terrible so far. Like, this isn't the sort of thing you even remember for being bad, this is the sort of thing you just forget after the season ends.
Fucking money sink, no wonder no one has this shit.
A mystical creature that remains unkillable and can move itself to any planet, dimension, plains of existence, and phantasy star game with its ability of photons and holes in the ground.
he gon' b' fine.
Her VA is >>127965835
Mao aka GOKAAAAAAAAI YELLOW
So they're pulling a .hack all of sudden?
If true, that's even dumber, holy shit.
I'm not that much into JP/anime culture, but did anyone ask for this shit? as in, will this be welcomed by the general audience?
It really doesn't seem to fit the motif of the game at all, let alone the series.
If they do, I'm hoping for fire, lots of it, mostly aimed at those responsible.
Did you miss 5% affix boost week or something? All those 96 could have been 100.
Without boost week, why not find a 3s Elder(or Malluda, Goron, or Nepto, whichever is cheapest) Soul/Tech3/Junk unit instead of the Tech3/Junk/Junk - should still be fairly cheap and the rates would go up to 100/100/100/96.
>last update was in ep 2
I updated it a little (my part looks awful) but could someone help with the guest voice additions or any mistakes I made?
Her head looks really small for the figure she's been given.
>I am a Cast, and totally not the seitokaichou! I'm a veteran player, that's why I have a fucking 4* launcher equipped!
Most of this is correct but the cast mentioned that he changed classes so he can level with the hunter in training.
We could probably remove Persona from Hiroshi Kamiya's slot, or at least indicate that it's only his EP1 lines that apply there, or something
Add Seraphy next to Quna, Xiao next to Xion
Euclita needs to go next to Ulc, if I recall correctly
Needs an entry for Sukunahime and Kotoshiro
>rappy spawns during a good AQ burst
>Behind a piece of scenery
purge all rappies
Holy fuck it's terrible.
>Woah, you don't play online games? You're going to be left behind.
Least sega girls was funny at times.
Calling it now. The plot of pso2 changes and we've been playing a game that became reality.
I couldn't find the 's voice actor but the rest is done
no, PSO2 was created to prepare a team of elite high school students for the coming shitstorm
PSO2 emerged after after the increasingly connected and networked planet gave rise to a global photon-based subconsciousness, which subsequently began to receive superluminal transmissions from the rest of the universe
>Ichitaro voice acted lubert.
Zoom in on face its the ichitaro npc concert dancer and its just lubert without the hat.
I wish i wasnt so slow to catch these things.
>friend gets me into the game
>plays with me during my first time, he changes his class into his level 1 bouncer because he still hasn't touched bouncer
>uses a 12 star weapon, I don't get to do anything
>Take two month hiatus
>Nothing has changed when I return
Aside from the new lobby and TD I guess. How is the new TD?
>Know zero japanese
>Watch anime livestream
>Just finish watching the subbed version
>Literally exactly the same as my original interpretation
If there's one good thing about this anime it's that it's so bad, cliched and predictable that it can give some really sad laughs.
I'm curious, since theres switch strike skills, what do you think the best summoner combo will end up being? Su/Hu for the fury stance bonuses (if that even works like that? I do remember there not being JA circles for some odd reason, which is a bit of HU dmg bonus)
Or would some other r atk or t atk su/x combo work better. Granted it's all just theory at this point based on the (who knows how accurately translated) skill names
Can you activate Chain Trigger with an AIS laser or deployed photon cannon?
Don't mind me, just using my post number to see which loadout I bring into the next TD4.
That's seriously not zext's height in real life right?
There are loli's walking around taller than him.
WHA says "shooting" enemy weak points. If that means switch strike shoot works (as it would maybe count as long as they are doing "shoot" damage), that could work pretty well for bosses (and maybe more, depends what all pets can do)
BR for weak stance definitely seems like it could work, if whatever pets do can't hit weak spot well and you get to a boss that can, easy stance swap (not sure if would need a new tree for both stances?) And since stances BR stances are for all damage types as well, it would let you try neopet man with whatever units you might have had. Although the RA sub possibility for WB then swap back to baton pet whatever is also a thing, maybe.
But all speculation. I'm actually excited a bit by the class, if only since it might let me retire from bo and this rainbow fucking bullshit. The candy crush bullshit whatever the fuck though seems a bit worrisome. That seems like an AC trap possibly, or another RNG fuckery along the lines of older dudu (since poor guys been nerfed hard over time)
I can believe it.
so we can just change pet ele for the area basically? long as theres no real cost to doing so that would be neat, I guess. Some areas can be half and half though, but oh well.
Give me a few minutes and I can give you a somewhat prime example of how not to make a mag.
My oldest one was infinitely worse because I focused it on
balancing defensesback when I was retarded enough to think being a tank was a thing that could be viable, but what I have now is still pretty terrible.
The last wave lasts up to 30 minutes.
If we leave 3 or 4 dedicated burners on apprentice and stall the wave for as long as possible without killing apprentice, killing the additional mobs will warrant more drops?
It's got much less english players and no community hub for said english players. The english community is basically a bunch of circles of cliques that don't interact as opposed to ship 2's circle of cliques that shitpost about each other and interact passive aggressively.
If you're a solofag you'll have an easier time dealing with EQs due to pub player quality being substantially higher, at least.
Most people who shitpost about ship 2 or it's players are on ship 4.
Only at the higher levels. Since it's the biggest JP ship, Sega encourages (new) people to play on other ships.
Nothing, ship4 is objectively one of the best. I've been stuck on ship2 for a year and a half and I can tell you its rubbish here, bad economy, least players, worst players and pug mpa experience. I would have transferred off by now if it wasn't for all the stuff I got here.
there is english on 4, it's just not overflowing like cancer like on 2
pretty much this
the cliques have dissolved a decent bit over time, and thanks to EQ scheduled stones being large part of the progress now is why
back in AQ or XQ days cliques were more alive. its very much not clique with how the spreadsheet works.
its THE busiest ship, and only dead if you are an idiot. not english only, but just idiot. also its alot more than 1 hand you hyperbolic retard
lucky for you, that will be very possible soon (unless you have more than 300+inv size crap)
everyone shitposts about 2 and rightly so, because its awful and anyone who plays there is gaia level faggot, or stockholm syndrome.
I've interacted with english players on both 2 and 4, and I can tell you with absolute certainty that nearly everyone is shitposting about everyone. There's just as many people shitposting about ship 4 from ship 2 as there are people on ship 2 shitposting about ship 4, with much more people from ship 2 shitposting about each other than the other two groups combined.
Well, it seems like there is absolutely no consensus.
Hangout with english players and circlejerk and constantly post in the thread about eachother? Ship 2.
Mostly solo, run EQs with friends, and generally progress with a decent player economy? Ship 4
Oh good, I can replace the one I got with this one.
Well I'm JP time zone so the other servers are kinda ded that's why I came here in the first place. Was just kinda hoping there would be a few English speaking people as well because my nip is pretty bad.
Thanks to time zone when I have time to play its around 8 AM~1PM (JP Time)
That means I'm fucked everywhere except ship 2?
Oh wait my bad I forgot Astral has 5 on it. Ignore me.
There's nothing better in this world than buying a gf
WB jammer so nobody used WB to trigger their weak stance.
Astral is already 80% base. The real annoyance is affixing Soul Catalyst to 4 weapons because it's 20 excubes for 40% (or 100 for a coin flip that is much less efficient considering the cost)
Some people call it tedious, I call it fun.
It was a loooot of fun upslotting the fodders from 2s to 5s.
60% for astral, actually. Incredibly, only one of the 40%s failed me, while I had four 95% failing.
I guess Dudu can`t into math.
The animation accurately portrays my first time in PSO2 too well.
>When you beat Apprentice but the quest results say A Rank.
But I mean like worst anime I've seen in the past 7 years
>PSO2 still has no good fluffy wolf tail accessories
I'm gonna transfer to ship 4 guys! I'm gonna do it!
