  1. Another reason to just play PSO2 instead.
  2. Oh also loot nerf. It's like DE wants Anthem's audience. That's just an icing on a cake.
  3. Nightwave. A huge layer of additional grind on top of existing one. Yes warframe is online grinder, but it doesn't mean that effort/time put into grinding should not be proportional to the reward. Nightwave felt like a job where you getting paid pennies and is treated like a slave. Alerts were flawed, but were way way better. Orb Bosses Hiding a boss fight, which are a scarce entertainment in warframe in general, behind huge grind wall of daily rep caps is anti enticing Outright predatory handling of unvaults I'v brought it up here Band handling of tennogen A huge number of fan favourite tennogent submission are not being accepted into the game for YEARS without any explanation. ION Cloak being prime example https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1592762689&searchtext=
  4. That's actually another problem. Some content creators raised it already. Returning players/veterans/those of us who grinded a lot in the past have NO benefits when new content comes out. These soft resets forcing us to grind from scratch for new frames and weapons are hugely discouraging and killing all desire to play and get these new items. Items themselves feeling like retreading and remixing of old frames don't help the issue. Let me write it all down.
  5. Ok first off this is not a hate topic. I'm not "quitting" or whatever, I'm taking a break. Like I did in what? 2013 to return 2 years later and find a new game. I think it's time for me to take long break again. Every single decision DE made after Fortuna is directly against my tastes, opinions and preferences in video games in general and WF in particular. It wasn't all white and fluffy before as well, but at least most problems were counter balanced by good parts. But after "we all lift together" it just stopped lifting. Nightwave, orb bosses, hyldrin, new primes, outright predatory handling of unvaults, bad handling of tennogen content, etc etc I still like old content, but literally zero of the new content is appealing to me. After seeing what gas city rework entailed and the new frames announced I decided to just uninstall the game after having it on my pc for 4 years straight. I dunno, a lot of partners were coming with constructive critcisms and solution for months now, and yet game still goes downhill. For me at least. Everything feels wrong and I don't feel welcome to play anymore. Maybe I'm in minority, WF never left steam top 10 played games for a day for the last 4 years, including during last year, so I guess I am. I hope when I return someday I'll find just as amazing as I did in 2015. Thanks for reading this, just needed to vent out I guess.
  6. People say that but I feel it's the opposite. I used to jump in, do a bunch of stuff, usually run alerts for helmets and nitain, trade some things back and forth and call it a day. I never felt obliged to do anything. Now logging in and seeing nightwave and arbitrations just makes my head hurt and I log off without running a single mission. Game is structured more like a job now, which caters more to hardcore players than to casuals/noobs. That's my opinion, tell me if you disagree with me.
  7. How is sugatra pathetic and some cape isn't? Both are ways of expressing oneself through fashion in multiplayer game. By that logic all cosmetics are pathetic.
  8. They literally mention Jim Sterling name on stream.
  9. I already said all of that. Making packs unmixed or giving players option to upgrade previously bought packs would fix the issue. Then the whether the practice is being exploitative on purpose or by mistake beside the point. They can fix it, but if they won't it would indicate that this is by design. They didn't fix it on larger scale before big internet content creator called them out on it, which rules out the possibility of them doing it "by mistake".
  10. The situation currently is exactly the same as it was during unvaults not being separated, but it's now on a smaller scale. In principle nothing have changed, they still sell you duplicates with items you don't have, so you have to buy the entire thing. It's just as unethical now as it was before.
  11. I already explained why and how it is.
  12. As opposed to "this is unethical anti-consumer practice and it should stop"
  13. "I don't care so you shouldn't care" is not an argument.
  14. And history shown that without large push back from e-celeb DE will not stop exploiting players. And for some e-celeb to make such push back it's us common players is who need to make a stand first.
  15. That's clearly an exploitation. I already explained how and why, stop defending these predatory practices. They know full well that people don't like to wait so they push duplicates along with items people want.
  16. If packages were not mixed up, and it would always the same combination of items - THEN there would be no exploiting, since there would be no change of getting duplicates what so ever, since you would already have everything from the same pack. They are clearly exploting cosmetics with putting parts of different sets in different combinations, pushing players towards buying stuff we already have. That was the entire point of them separating cosmetics from gameplay items in unvaults in the first place. It's like taking one step forward, two steps back.
  17. I'm not discussing gameplay because it's not the point of this topic, so please stop trying to derail it. As for waiting, that's not an argument, because there is no information on when items will go on sale again and in what combinations. It's entirely possible that it will never be repackaged with anything else, DE will not give us such information.
  18. What I'm saying is that I can't buy sugatra without buying a duplicate set of edo set, which is anti-consumer. Ways to fix this would be either to allow players to "upgrade" their pack or to package different items in a way that avoid duplicates.
  19. They already monetize gameplay.
  20. That's what I thought. But it's not different combination. Kazeru isn't packaged with some other armor set that I don't have. It's packaged with the one it was with originally, then they skipped it in the unvaulting and now it's back with edo again. Here's another insight on how cosmetics do in fact matter and affect players' experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkW4jH-MI3Y
  21. tl;dr Cosmetics matter because they allow players to express themselves in video games just like different play styles do. DE knows this and exploits this. Long version: My last thread was successfully derailed by people that got uncomfortable with the fact that DE released edo prime unvault without sugatra first, and few months later they re-released it with sugatra in, effectively forcing supporters like myself to buy the same thing twice if they (me) want the entire set. I did some research and apparently youtuber's name who pushed DE to selling prime cosmetics separately is Jim Sterling. I browsed through his videos and found this A video where he proves, that skins and other cosmetics do in fact matter. And while DE, thank god, don't put gambling into their game beyond riven re-rolling and mod packs, they still exploit cosmetic microtransactions with putting incomplete prime cosmetics set on sale first, and then re-selling the full thing later without giving us an option to "upgrade" the purchase, rather than the buying entire thing again and ending up with duplicates.
  22. Cosmetics are optional? Well playing the game is also optional. There is no such thing as "optional".
  23. My point is this is blatantly deliberate, this sugatra should have been included in edo unvault by default back in the first unvaulting. They do know that there is small number of people like me that care about sugatras and want them. I called it last year, I knew this is going to happen, but I still had hope they will either repackage sugatra with something else, but there we are.
