7 ranks – It was a bittersweet return to PAD. While I was glad to have plenty to do, most notably including the FF Collab and a ranking dungeon, I was constantly reminded of the poor aspects of the game. Namely, a severely punishing collab skill up fodder rate on top of an already rage-inducing skill up system and a ranking dungeon system that encourages shitters like me to fish for a god run rather than measuring actual skill. Despite that, I had fun. While I’m still wary of committing all-in again, I’m definitely keeping PAD in my gaming rotation.
Next Week and Beyond:
There’s a JP stream happening later this week or something. Prepare for disappointment (pls no gungho pls).
The NA maintenance was delayed a day which is somewhat disconcerting, but hopefully skill inheritance does get pushed. While that feature is less interesting that it seems, at the very least it’s something to do.
