Dear DE

 

I have setup my 15 new email addresses - Gmail lets you append a string to an existing address "AnEmail+001@gmail.com"

 

So really I am just using one address, 15 times. But hey.

 

I have created my 15 new Warframe accounts using those 15 new email address and the referral link from my main account.

 

This bit took a while of copy and paste and tabbing between fields.

 

 

Now, I just have to log in and start running missions.

 

I will do this from a second PC, just so my main can drag the new account around and speed run things - since the new account needs to run 10 unique missions, and a brand new account is really slow to solo even Mercury as you need to take it one enemy at a time.

 

Is this what you had in mind for the referral system DE?

 

Will i be banned for this? I hope not. I couldn't see any disclaimer saying this behaviour was not allowed. And even if it was I would still risk it.

 

Do you know why DE?

 

Do you want to guess why? I don't care about extra inventory slots or stuff like that. I can buy them as I need.  I care that you appear to have made a Unique Mod a reward for referring 15 friends.

 

This Mod doesn't appear to drop anywhere, I can't farm in game for it. 

 

I will have to farm the referral system.

 

Thanks DE, for making an old veteran player have to grind a different system to get a lousy mod.

Agreed. I want that mod so bad, I have a feeling it can be gotten transmuting but with a really low chance since undying will and self destruct both drop. I just want it... and if it truly is referral only I'll just question DE's reason for it. The slots are enough, the possibly platinum is enough... 

 

I really want to do this but I played the first 10 missions a few time with low level gear and each referral takes about 1 - 1.25 hours. To get 1 mild mod I would need to put in almost 20 or so hours or invite 15 friends (if I had that many...)

I really really like my Ogris and don't like AoE frames?

 

Mainly because I am always trying to level weapons and if I am the one on the AoE frame I get NO WEAPON XP for all those kills.

 

Whereas if I let some other person spam their AoE skill I get the sweet sweet XP for all my equipped gear for every kill they make.

 

So that is why kids, if you want to level weapons fast be the Frost sitting on the pod and let everyone else do the heavy lifting!

I'm not sure how I feel about this as a fellow player. Creative, yes... However, being a veteran player as you claim, would you not have enough friends who are gamers to at least get the majority of these taken care of in a legitimate way?

Remember primed chamber? That was a Lifeless contest.

Look at firestorm. Popularity contest.

Don't worry about it though. Good mods are out of reach but reach mods are too plentiful.

Ok, yeah, that sucks. I see your point. I think I'd probably ask that all of us "refer" each other again to various aliases and run the missions in groups of four. Would go much faster I'd imagine...

 

All my friends replied "Never again".

 

LOL My husband and I had a friend try the game... he didn't let us know he was on and couldn't get past the first quest. *sigh* Some people just don't get it and wont give us a chance to help them!

Transmutation is a terrible terrible terrible system.

 

And I will never use it.

 

It is just a giant money sink for people who do not understand RNG. If there was specific formulas or weighted outcomes, then maybe. 

 

But in its current state no thank you.

 

I really want to do this but I played the first 10 missions a few time with low level gear and each referral takes about 1 - 1.25 hours. To get 1 mild mod I would need to put in almost 20 or so hours or invite 15 friends (if I had that many...)

 

 

That is why I plan to just have WF running on a second PC, and group up with my main and speed run things. Just leave the new account at the start.

 

it's not like I am worried about missing the credit reward for not hitting the extraction point. Hell even if they die the mission is still a success if my main completes it (no worries about that at all)

 

On a rush build Loki we are talking 2mins max for capture missions

How long exactly is it going to take DE to start making useful, unique mod cards for different weapons, ability boosts etc?

What will you do if the accounts are tracked by IP address, is my question.

I find it funny how no one is looking at the Mod "Undying Will"... I know Firestorm is a really useful mod for some of the weapons... but still, all 3 of those mods are somewhat game changing. Better Utility Sentinel by having it blow up when destroyed, increased explosions for certain weapons, and a mod that increases the amount of time you last before actually dying in Downed status.

The rules state that each new friend must play 10 unique missions for you to to be considered referred.

 

I can see the effort in which you went through to make those 15 accounts, but in order to get your mod you have to play 10 unique missions on each of those accounts.
