One of the main complaints many have about Dead or Alive 6, is that it’s difficult to acquire some costumes due to the low drop rate of costume parts (or Patterns) dropped in most modes outside of DOA Quest.
Today Team Ninja announced via Twitter that things are going to change with a server-side update on Monday, March 4 at 10:00 am Japan Time. Costume part drops in multiple modes will be multiplied by ten.
Maintenance of the game will take place on March 4th (Mon) 10:00 JST, which will multiply the amount of costume parts earned x10 in Arcade, Time Attack and Survival modes.
*Gameplay will not be interrupted during maintenance.
*Activation hour may differ between platforms.

It’s worth mentioning that the tweet in Japanese mentions that this is in addition to Ranked Matches, which are already affected by a campaign multiplying costume parts by ten.
This is certainly a step in the right direction, as the issues with unlocking costumes were basically the biggest complaint I had in my review of the game. Hopefully future patch will also mitigate or remove the random factor in the system.
