Since right now, post rank 20 hardly anything is worth the time and effort, party or not.
Not true, I can get 50k sp in a matter of a couple hours running leves with my LS at rank 42. But you can't do that outside of leves, so I hope that is what they are addressing. Leve SP doesn't need to be touched.
I wasn't referring to leves in any way, shape or form in my post. Leves are an entirely different monster, but seeing as how the patch notes just said "sp gain in parties." It will very likely apply to both in and out of leves, seeing as how it was an "improvement" then chances are all it will do is improve your rate of gain in your stupendous leve parties.
My point, though, was that before rank 20 you can kill a yellow dodo and potentially get 200+ sp. After rank 20 you can kill a different tier of dodo, still yellow, and maybe get 100. That is a flawed system, and no matter what they do to sp gain in parties, until they address that flaw nothing they do will actually be an acceptable improvement. Until they fix how sp works in it's entirety, anything they do will only be "slightly less worse" than it is now.
I am all for improvements. But I'd much rather they acknowledge what is broken rather than implement fixes that only make things slightly more bearable.
