  1. on the bright side that means more interesting content per devstream
  2. this is the feedback section of the forums, you're looking for this thread;
  3. except that vauban prime has a prime toggle, you can make him look like normal vauban if you wanted. additionally, vauban and vauban prime have different stats, with the prime version having overall better stats than default vauban. the same applies between excalibur and excalibur umbra; umbra has better stats than default excalibur along with three umbral polarities pre-installed, by forcing players to use an inferior version of excalibur just because they don't like the scarf just doesn't sit well for me and many others in this thread. using the default version of a frame while a better version is out is basically handicapping yourself as you're going to be missing out on the advantages that upgraded version has compared to the other. the point of this very thread was to make that handicap for fashion gone and allow us to fully customise excalibur umbra like any other warframe that has an alternate variant, and we've finally got it after a solid year of asking.
  4. the end of an era of complaining and bumping the thread is here. thank you for doing this!
  5. the one year anniversary of this thread is coming up on the 13th, and we've had zero progress on this goal. in that time, we could have at least got one response from DE, but we've got absolutely nothing, not here, not on twitter, not on the subreddit. all i want to know is; why are you avoiding this thread DE? over that one year period one of you must have seen this thread and clicked on it, only to realise that there's still a demand for a minor feature a good chunk of your players have been begging for. we're not asking for a complete overhaul of the game or something massive, this is a simple treatment that every other warframe variant has received over the years. it's not impossible as mesa prime got the exact treatment we have been looking for and that took a week if you don't count the winter break. with the announcement of excalibur's deluxe skin, there's already increased concern over this, people are starting to realise how much umbra's prime/extra details destroy deluxe and tennogen skins and they don't want that to happen to the planned deluxe skin, and they also don't want to be forced to play a statistically inferior version of a frame they enjoy just to look better. i can tell you right now, that if this issue isn't resolved by that deluxe skin release, there's going to be a lot of complaints on the forums asking for what we've been telling you for a year now. so why not just do it? why not give a response? why not give this one tiny, little, itsy-bitsy task to someone on your massive art team and get it over with in like a week (or in the worst case scenario, a month)? it doesn't have to be an exact, detailed reason, just give us answers.
  6. i gotta ask, why do you want to disable those particles? they're already in such tiny amounts that they won't impact performance much (if at all). and yes, what you're getting there is just CPU particles instead of GPU, that's how it was before the new particle system was introduced.
  7. DE - "We listen to our community!" the community - "ok can we have a scarf/prime details toggle for umbra? it absolutely destroys many excalibur skins and i don't want to be forced into using default excalibur." *absolutely nothing, not even a response* also the community - "mesa's ass is a little wrong" *DE arrives at 800mph and fixes her ass* also also the community - "why doesn't mesa prime have a prime toggle" *DE writes up a full blog post why not and eventually delivers a prime toggle after the holiday break, about a month of time distance (counting the holiday)* it isn't impossible DE, why can't you deliver on this one thing? why am i still here after months upon months of waiting for you to deliver on one tweak? why are you not even responding to us, even with a "yeah" or "nah" like how mesa prime was handled. "but umbra's scarf is part of who he is! he wouldn't want it removed!" is a common response i see, but then why is umbra fine with us painting him neon pink and giving him butterfly wings when he's (essentially) a legendary warrior? also the scarf wasn't even mentioned in the quest, his son wasn't wearing it nor did anyone gift it to him, it's merely a stylistic addition to the frame that has horrible clipping issues and ruins many tennogen skins. "but umbra isn't a prime! he can't have a prime toggle if he's not a prime!", this one just angers me because umbra is essentially the non-founder version of excalibur prime, he has gold bits, different polarities and improved stats. the only differences between him and a prime is his unique passive and remade second ability (that does the exact same as radial blind, but with a different animation). rename it to umbra toggle if calling it a prime toggle really gets on your nerves.
  8. assuming the tennogen wave is coming with this update? or are you going to surprise us with a sneaky update this week???
  9. mesa prime - "the model is different so we had to delay her prime toggle! so we've temporarily replaced the tennogen model with the non-prime variant" , fixed within a week of DE getting back from their christmas holiday, along with getting an ass overhaul. demand not as big as what excalibur umbra has received for the same treatment. excalibur umbra - months of silence, no word other than vague tweets saying "i'll ask the art team", tons of demand from the community, has been requested over 50 times and has been constantly bumped on the forums. no actions taken, not even a response to any of the threads made on the issue. tl;dr - tumbleweeds even the TEMPORARY treatment mesa got for her tennogen/alt skins would be acceptable for excalibur umbra; swap out the model with regular excalibur when using different skins. better yet, just add the god damn prime toggle feature to umbra like every other warframe variant????? we're not asking for umbra's scarf to become a syandana, we just want the simple ability to hide it, entirely or on tennogen skins. what makes umbra so special that he doesn't receive fair treatment? why are we being forced to have something that harms the looks of many excalibur skins?? why does mesa prime receive the exact thing we've been asking for after 1 month (counting the winter break)??? why are we being given the silent treatment???? just talk to us DE, explain why you're not going to do it, even a response of "we'll get around to it soon" or "we can't do this because so and so" would be sufficient and far better than the absolute silence we're currently getting. we shouldn't be bumping the same thread monthly in the vain hope of that response.
  10. scarf should be an auxillary item like nekros' and valkyrs chains/bonds; the rest of the umbra details should be on the prime details switch. why is this so hard to do DE? you did this just fine for mesa's prime parts, but umbra is left in the dust and we just get ignored? there's an obvious demand to be able to hide the scarf but we never get a response except for "we'll look into it :)". mesa prime gets a whole description why there's no prime toggle, and then it gets added later from high demand; umbra gets no reason why there's no prime toggle and there's no signs of one ever being added. this thread is 6 months old for christs sake and it keeps on getting bumped because people want the choice to be added; much like every other warframe in the game with a prime variant. just give us a "yeah ok" or "we can't do that because X" response; that's all we want from anyone at DE, simple god damn confirmation. if the umbra parts are welded to the model, then just switch out the model for default excal when using other skins.
  11. the zalgo text seems to refer to "chimera" if unscrambled; turning into "we're going to make chimera damage" best guess so far is that script steve posted on his twitter; we may be getting another apostasy prologue thing where a quest comes out completely unannounced and in secrecy.
