    Why do I get the feeling that they'll pull the plug on the OG PSO2 less than 3 years after NG comes out?

    There's still going to be EQs, but they're just going to be completely random, no more scheduled ones.

    Which is ridiculous. How hard would it have been to to make a monthly schedule, rotating all popular EQ every week and just keep it that way?

    I personally don't see any merit in them just closing access to regular PSO2. They went through all the hassle of keeping it tied to NGS by running it off the same client, had to upgrade the engine and for what? A few years of giving people the ability to access PSO2 then cutting it off? Would have been a lot less effort and time consuming just to start NGS separately and just have it access your cloud data, like how ES already does. Even if they did shut down regular PSO2, unlike other PSO games (to my knowledge) there isn't a way to play and experience PSO2 offline, officially.

    As for the changes being made to the base game, I don't see any issues with things like removal/migration of aspects like the log-in bonuses and the no scheduled EQs doesn't seem like an issue. Seeing as the target audience for NGS is new players, I doubt many on NGS would care about EQs on regular PSO2 enough to want to have scheduled EQs and global just completely ignores this issue because triggers of all important EQs are easily obtainable. Even currently on PSO2 most daily players tend to ignore most EQs, only ones that really have people running them are things that make people meseta like Cradle and Mothership.

    Just my thoughts, makes no sense to me why they would put a lot of effort to keep the game tied to the same client and implement features that go between them if they're just going to deny access to it completely later down the line. A lot of people seem to be upset with the changes just because they're focusing their efforts onto NGS and having regular PSO2 move into a state where it would have little to no maintenance from them as to not set aside workload for PSO2.

    baffles me why any of you would be remotely surprised that theyre throwing this game to the side to focus on the newer release and still thinking that theyre going to remotely put any effort into PSO2 anymore, i mean come on
