In the past we are only behind by 1 yr and 10 1/2 months but now we are behind by more than 2 years and 1 day and we are being surpassed by the Korea server on the progress content.
Personally, I'm not complaining. Yes, I want events to come sooner too but at the same time the waiting time let's me build up my Servants AND collect SQ and tickets for the banners with a Servant I really, REALLY want.
Sure, I might not get them even after saving hundreds of SQ but at least the chances are higher. Even if the difference isn't all that big, the fact that it's still higher is enough for me.
As an f2p (minus GSSR of course), every SQ and Ticket is valuable. So the more time I have to collect and save up, the better for me.
This is just my opinion and I'm not saying you should see things my way. But I do hope you'd rethink saying stuff like that here. We're all entitled to our own opinions, and I can understand the need to rant or let out frustrations, but there are better ways to say it.
So, let me get this straight. You are dissatisfied with the pacing of events compared to JP. And your conclusion is: "NA sucks"
Not to mention that you are, in fact, wrong. We have been behind 1 or 2 weeks less than two years since nearly the beginning. It varied a bit. And there were even events that were nearly exactly 2 years after JP (first halloween event Oct. 17 NA, Oct. 21 JP).
I guess they decided to just delay things until everything is near exactly 2 years later than JP for simplicity's sake.
It was always pretty obvious that DW's goal was for NA to be exactly 2 years behind JP. If you don't like that, don't play on NA.
For all the whining, I've never seen a coherent plan for NA to catch up to JP. Is there anyone who thinks that shortening or overlapping events would make for a better play experience?
This. And honestly, rushing events just to catch up will get exhausting.
I remember just starting last year then when they released Rashomon-ComingToTheWest-Onigashima-Camelot back-to-back-to back- to back events. I did NOT enjoy that at all.
Imagine doing that just to catch up to fukken JP or Korea.
>More delay means more time to save SQ
>It also means we have better Clairvoyance
>Some of us have lives and can't be farming FGO events 24/7, breaks are important
>We literally still even get QoL changes before JP did back in it's time, such as Grail system, Extra Class slot, Inventory Management, Enhance Shortcuts, 20 materials per enhancement cap, SOME animation updates, etc
ok then go enjoy trying to read your moonrunes and depending on the internet to hold your hand on a game you literally can't play in your own because you can't read or figure out what do to on events lol
You sound pretty ungrateful if you ask me. In JP servers since events and new banners are very common most JP fans don't have time to save up saint quartz by login bones and such, they must buy them. True in NA we have to buy saint quartz to but being able to save up with free ones is important. Not only that but FGO at first was a fan translated game when released in JP servers first and fans would translate the text just for English fans to understand until it got localized around 2017. Do you know how much effort it takes to the story text for Shinjuku? For all the events and all 7 singularities we completed? If you don't like the pace then go to JP FGO but don't shit on the effort that people do.
As someone who started around Nov. there are already too many events and banners for me to possibly save up enough for everything I would like to roll for:
Many of these with less than a month between, and that is not counting non limited servants rates for the likes of Tamamo no Mae, Quetzalcoatl, or Sanzan.
If they rushed the schedule not only would I and other players be overloaded but they would probably have to skip some events and reruns entirely.
I would rather continue to go at the pace we are going now. If I was really impatient I could download a JP version of the game (and having studied Japanese for 3-4 years I could even somewhat understand it). I like having that choice.
