  1. Probably not, most of the time. Unless the price asked is waaaay above average for a given "hot" new riven, if they don't accept it, someone else will. They can try to negociate, but if their offer is too low, again someone will still probably outbid them before they can finalize the trade. Anyways, it doesn't cost anything to try.
  2. Rivens are extremely popular. And since their introduction, warframe has generated revenues at an unprecedented pace. Hence, i don't think it's unreasonable to assume they significantly contributed the game's growth, and that DE might now be tempted to maximize their potential, from this standpoint, possibly in ways that might not have been initially envisioned.
  3. Yes, thanks for pointing that out. I edited my post to reflect the fact that, to me, the intention behind many of these dispo tweaks no longer seems to be fully and exclusively in line with what has been stated since rivens introduction. Also i must stress that this is how and why i, personnally, preceive this negatively.
  4. Indeed, it's becoming quite clear that the point of many dispo nerfs now is to strongly incite people who own rivens for a given weapon to also keep buying some for new weapons with a similar appeal. Obvious examples: arca plasmor -> catchmoon -> fulmin, or more recently, cyanex -> akarius. I understand why they do this, but i don't like it, not only because it devalues what i invested time and/or platinum in, but also and mostly because to me it looks like a deceitful, underhanded practice. I agree that balance of weapon usage, whether tied to power of fun factor, must be maintained. But i don't believe them when they claim this is their primary objective. They appear, in this regard and in my opinion, dishonest with their customers. That's a big no-no for me and a potential red flag about what's to be expected in the future. In closing, i sincerely hope that this will be taken as a frank, upfront feedback. No bashing intended.
  5. Buying rivens for new weapons being more pointless and foolish than ever, i now have nothing left to spend platinum on really. And since farming kuva and rolling rivens was my endgame, so to speak, i don't have much left to spend time on either 😞 It's a bit sad but, well, i guess i'll just play something else and check back once a year for the big (but short lived) new content.
  6. Wait what? -0.15 for the cyanex and akjagara? Also marelok only gets +0.05 and still has less than 1 disposition... I very rarely see anyone use these, and nobody wants to buy rivens for them, even good ones for cheap. Cyanex especially is rather weak, and awkward to use. Homing projectiles sounds good on paper, but with extremely wide spread and very slow flight speed, they miss moving targets more often than not. It also has low rof, very small magazine, and long reload... I don't get it 😕
  7. Bad game design -> players use what tool they have to overcome the issues -> devs removes tools instead of fixing issues.
  8. Nice! Could you fix the multishot on ocucor too please? MS mods only account for half of their value since release. And by the way, it also suffers from a couple other bugs and issues, mostly related to the tendrils: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1067763-ocucor-is-still-glitched/?tab=comments#comment-10570406 https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1061216-ocucor-is-still-broken/?tab=comments#comment-10518960 https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1072417-ruinous-extension-removes-range-from-ocucors-homing-lasers/?tab=comments#comment-10601619 https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1068739-ocucor-tendrils-tracking-disabled/?tab=comments#comment-10576379 https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1032966-ocucor-only-half-of-multishot-accounted-for-in-beams-damage-and-completely-ignored-in-tendrils-damage-also-tendrils-have-no-effect-on-the-beams-target/ More: https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Ocucor (see bugs section and comments)
  9. If the "best weapons" usage won't decrease significantly despite the nerfs, i don't see how "other weapons" usage could improve significantly as a result. Unless maybe you think that nullifying months of their efforts and investment will entice people to spend more time in the game overall? Convectrix, tysis, synapse, stug and the others will keep gathering dust, the only thing that these updates will do is make people more angry and distrustful.
  10. Huge nerfs to what people like, and minute buffs to what they don't. It doesn't take a psychic to foresee where that'll lead to. If we're not interested in the weakest, ugliest, most awkward weapons's despite their rivens' 200-300% bonuses, 5% is unlikely to change our mind. In contrast, litterally halving our most beloved rivens stats over just 2 updates will surely leave quite a sour aftertaste and make more and more people hesitant about investing into rivens altogether. I'm not sure what DE is really trying to achieve here... maybe they realized rivens are a bad idea in the long run, but can't just remove them at once so they're slowly kill it instead?
  11. If you really have to make enemies 50% easier, at least please increase further the level of those farther away from fortuna entrance. That way everyone can find a challenge and beginners will have an incentive to get better, instead of just being able to explore the whole map safely right away with an unmodded starter frame. Give them a sense of progression.
  12. That's around 90k dps with a crit build,a punchtrough mod and no riven 😮
  13. After the few tweaks that occurred for some weapons more than a year ago, and since dispo of recently primed 5/5 weapons weren't adjusted at all, i thought that DE abandoned the idea of mass riven disposition change across the board. Especially given the absolute lack of communication about it, even in the game itself. I thought it was now safe to assume that rivens were overall in a stable state. I was obviously wrong. Expanding and perfecting my riven collection was what occupied me between the increasingly sparse updates and events. I rolled them thousands of times and collected more than a million kuva. Sometimes also bought very specific ones. Oh, and maxed my slots, bought 2 years worth of resources boosters, and countless formas and potatoes for weapons i would not have been interested in otherwise. That was a huge time investment. Now sunken cost fallacy may be well, a fallacy, my interest in rivens dropped to zero nonetheless and is very unlikeley to recover. With it also vanished almost any long term incentive to play, or spend platinum. This sudden, inconsiderate, and badly thought out change is the straw that broke the camel's back. I know this feedback will probably just be more fuel for the sick joy so many people seem to get from the disappointment of others here, but i don't care much anymore. Have fun with that.
