  1. So in the end is 1 TM selector per month at best.
    Since we only can get 10 reports per week, not to mention you wont have enought mats to upgreat your new gear….
    And you totally forget about the increased rate for soul judgment…
    Such horrible year and your making it worse, thanks 🙁

    1. well. you have yo expect that.. since that is a selector ticket. hmm. and ofc new users will not afford this. hahaha. END GAME content. hmm

      1. Reports may be a problem instead of crystals, you get 10 reports a week so it is 1 tm selector per month

    2. In case u haven’t noticed yet, which I doubt you do. TM raids are designed specifically not for newbies

    3. This is end game content for a reason, you slowly build up your gear to be able to do dragon and get chimera gear to eventually be able to get TM gear. As a vet who has been playing for 3 ish years this is nice to have something to work towards.

  2. I love the Evan costume but are you being serious Vespa?!
    Only ONE male hero gets a Christmas costume (Evan) in this batch… really???

    The male to female costume ratio is getting WORSE and WORSE every patch. It used to be 3:5, then it went to 2:6 and now it’s 1:7.

    And let’s not forget there are heroes who haven’t had costumes in years (poor Dakaris/Kaulah etc).
    Plus how you “buffed” Ripine’s chest to make her sell… god.

    Well at least the Lucias LOH costume is good.

  3. Poor Roi was so badly “buffed” in November that he is trying to make ends meet by modelling for Vespa’s new LOH accessory… even then he can’t even show his face because he is forgotten and not loved by Vespa.

    Sadly Roi users are all dead. They’re non-existent ever since the release of transfer tickets.
    ————
    And btw, huge laughs to making a selector cost 54k crystals and 40 reports. Absolutely ridiculous. Should have been 30k at most + 20 reports.

    Horrible year overall. Cannot wait to see your “Green Note” and “January Developer Talk” where you will get even more backlash for not listening to players and saying more laughable things about balance.

  4. Are you insane??! 40 REPORTS for one selector?! We don’t even have many ways to earn reports! It should have been at MAX 20… But no. ¥€$PA really wants players to wait FOUR months to craft ONE set.

    As usual Vespa screws up and never fails to disappoint.
    *claps* 👏

    1. This is meant to not be a boom you have sets for all, it is to breath longevity into the game.

      1. Imagine the game will have longevity. Considering the state of balance (it just got worse with Ripine + Riheet combo) I highly doubt it. At best, maybe a year or two.

  5. Can’t wait for patch to come to transfer Gremory/Dimael to Lorraine, Pansirone or Fallen Frey. Or maybe the new heroes too. Since that’s what Vespa wants everyone to do after all.

    Since they gave up on balance 🙂

  6. “Please note that the screenshots in the Patch Notes have been taken from a test environment and may differ from what you see in-game.”

    Wait, you actually test your game? Because from the current state it’s in (balance/crashes and optimisation) it sure doesn’t seem like it.

  7. Vepsa is the dark souls 2 of game companies for every good thing they do they have to shank just to make the good thing mediocre or bad

    Tm crafting YAY
    4 months for one set of gears NAY

  8. 1 TM per month KEKW.
    54k Crystals.
    10 Reports.
    Not to mention you need the same materials (Crystals) for changing the line stats.
    Also not to mention its 50-50 if its reclaimed or not.
    YIKES.

  9. what a disappointment. TM crafting isn’t doing much… With no other way to gain reports, that’s gonna solve nothing. 1 Piece a month is a joke.

  10. I agree with many commentators here. ONE piece of TM a month is a massive joke. It’s been like 5 months since this garbage equipment system was implemented along with Ch.10. But you have NOTHING significant to fix it’s huge problems. At least reduce the amount of Technomagic Reports it costs to craft. Seriously. We only get 10 reports per week.

    Basically from the last few patches: Both balance and TM gear acquisition in Pansirone’s Raid still remains a joke. Lies, lies and more lies from Vespa’s team to “improve”.

    The whole year has been money focus: 45k rubies limited costumes, rubies to open Central Orvel, 99-pages long Special Shop Updates, gear presets which cost 1k for more slots but crashes upon use, pets which have separate damage multipliers…
    • Let’s not forget their latest announcement to “not nerf” broken heroes (Pansirone/Fallen Frey/Lorraine/Dark Lord Kasel), their simple but stupid HP buff to Velk (which needs hell lot more changes) and 9 months no notice to changing WB3 Physicsl Amplification. How they buffed Ripine’s chest to make her sell and made her brother Riheet DLK v2… but perhaps even more cancerous… this shows you their priorities are all over the place.

    Vespa, you keep stabbing your playerbase over the over with your baffling decisions. This means that the wounds you create from your empty promises and refusal to listen to players feedback ultimately never heals.

    If you want to drive even more players away, then you’re indeed heading there.

    So much for your latest Christmas letter where you claim to have “not given up on the game”. Your actions speak otherwise.

  11. Plot Twist: Vespa is never gonna renew the Estelle Missions (we gut the 100 days for a mission that can be completed within 2 weeks). They will just say “30 more days” and “60 more days” and “100 more days”…

    1. It’s because of stupid newbies. Vespa only listen to 3 groups of players: 1) Japan server, 2) huge whales and 3) newbies.

  12. Please re-buff ALL the heroes in November balance patch (+ Dakaris from December) because they all got memed apart from Lilia and Hilda.

    Also buff Gremory (Yanne no.2) because she is garbage everywhere. New hero Ripine 0* UW/UT/no SW out-DPS Gremory and is also useable in way more contents.

    Focus on BALANCE in 2021 instead of stupid powercreep heroes/equipment/pets system.
