    The Sacrifice: Hotfix 23.2.1

    Just a reminder, to keep things civilized, folks. Having a discussion about issues is fine, but they should never degrade to personal attacks or insults. Keep it clean, keep it civil, please. -SB

    Hostig games by players has to go

    On a personal level, I don't see an issue in that outside of programming. That is why feedback is important. My response was not in regards to what could be done to make the current connectivity model better, only that eliminating it entirely is not a decision that is taken lightly or cheaply. Having the toggle within the PTP environment might also have knock-on effects, but there are some QoS settings that are already in place to decide the best host. DE know their system back-end better than I. Suggestions like this are quite legitimate though. I just don't know the whole picture enough to argue whether it should be implemented or not.

    Hostig games by players has to go

    Firstly, people need to calm themselves. If we want to have a civilized discussion on the pros and cons of hosted services vs. PTP, then people shouting down other poster’s experiences gain nothing. Keep it civil folks, or the thread is getting locked. Secondly, let me give you a little bit of what I know. In my day job, I am a SysAdmin for another large video game publisher, and I can tell you this without any hesitation, dedicated servers are not just expensive, they are E X P E N S I V E. Literally, millions of dollars of network infrastructure are needed to cover games with such large player bases, and on top of that, you have to double up that infrastructure to allow for redundancy. You then multiply that by having to rent datacenters all over the world, and you can see how this cost can quickly become overwhelming. Edit: This does also not take into account the rental costs that are paid month-to-month for hosting said services. Costs vary of course, but they can total to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to maintain said infrastructure. It is not about saving a few bucks here and there, dedicated servers for worldwide players can incur costs that would quickly wipe out most small development studios. Okay, my personal input is done. Please continue the discussion civilly. -SB
  4. I stand, forever vigilant, Tenno.
  5. Thanks guys! Honestly, I can envision this guy appearing in various situations and locations, but Nidus has basically filled my need for Baphomet in the game. Now I just have to convince one of the TennoGen creators to make a Baphomet Helmet for Nidus, and I'll be set...

    The Temporary Future of Warframe Trials

    A quick reminder here to keep things civil. Everyone has an opinion about the trails and raids, and all of them have some merit. However, reverting to abusive behavior and threats does not put these points across well. Have a discussion and try to empathize with the people taking with you. If you want things to change, the best way to do so is to bring up valuable points with your reasoning for why you dislike a change, and what you would do differently to create a compromise. Insulting, flaming and baiting do nothing but get your opinions relegated to the trashcan, and potentially, warnings from the mod team. Please remember to keep it clean and keep it civil, folks. GAME ON.

    The Best Defense - Melee Creation Contest!

    FACTION Grineer DESCRIPTION (Blade and Whip Grip) This slow-swinging, militarized version of a boarding tool embodies everything about the Grineer approach to warfare; It’s vicious, it’s destructive and serves in multiple functions simultaneously. The super-heated, sickle-like plasma blade can carve through hardened armor, the explosive, cable-bound weighted end can clear debris and attackers in equal measure and even the heat vents can be used to maim and kill. It is the embodiment of murderous, Grineer ingenuity. When in use, the vent plating slides back to protect the users hand from the heat, then moves back to guard the plasma nozzles when stowed. ARTWORK Personal Note: While I appreciate the concern that my name is not listed next to the Silva & Aegis, I have never asked for it, nor felt like it was deserved. I just doodled the idea. Tennogen guys actually create the stuff, while the animation and art team at Warframe did most of the glorious work for the S&A. I am totally fine with how the Silva & Aegis is listed!

    Farewell to Mynki!

    Mynki is and always will be the reason I fell in love with Warframe, and I am honored and glad to have gotten to talk to him and see his vision pan out. Its a sad day yet good day, indeed. Geoff is awesome to the core, Mynki is off to create some other beautiful world of sexy joy, of that I have no doubt. Good like Mike! Stay in touch and good luck Geoff! You have some huge shoes to fill, but I know you are going to crush it. Many hearts to the art team too! You are all awesome!
