  1. *cries in Rune Factory Special* You could definitely frame this as an attempt to sidestep the problem of constantly being asked to rework X, Y and Z frame. It might even turn out to work well. God forbid I tender my opinion that it probably won't. It puts me in mind of the way WoW: Cataclysm broke a lot of the old system structures open, technically allowing for a lot of new possibilities. The end result was a lot of unsatisfying choices that just made the game more difficult to parse and contributed to what became (I think) the largest six-month sub count drop any game had ever see
  2. Basically this; we're just going to end up with another Mandatory Mods situation. Credit to DE for trying, but at some point you've destroyed so much category structure that the whole thing becomes a soupy mess. This doesn't sound like anything that would make me want to pick up the game again.
  3. I think we agree on pretty much all the major points here. I'm not interested in litigating this issue, because I don't have the time or the money for it. The easier answer is what's being done in this thread, which is to put the question to the public. The only thing that I can imagine logging in to do these days would be to finish unloading the last of my trade goods, which is really just academic. The clan, the dojo, the platinum and all the other stuff will just continue to sit like it's doing now. Current events have all aligned to make Warframe a bad place to put my time, not to me
  4. Just for informational purposes, this is the Federal Trade Commission's three-factor test. I don't have an exhaustive understanding of exactly what FTC regs DE is required to comply with (if any), and the process of properly researching it is pretty laborious if I'm being honest. This gets further complicated by the fact that any complaints would have to allege with specificity the violation that is occurring. Because DE isn't explicitly and affirmatively advertising/marketing these boosters in the way we traditionally think of products being marketed, it becomes a matter of nailing
  5. Inclined to agree with this, honestly. A standard has been set that it's reasonable for us to expect some kind of communication regarding major events of this nature. I find myself waffling a lot about all this, in case that wasn't already obvious. I've been around this game since spring of '13, and enjoyed it on and off in various ways over the years. My first impulse when hearing about many of the more concerning developments (from my own perspective ofc) has historically been to step away from the game for a while and check back in some time down the road. A Tencent acquisiti
  6. Agreed. If I can delete my Blizzard account and not look back, I can do the same for Warframe.
  7. You can like someone based on what you know about their history and still criticize them for something you think was out of line. People can disagree and remain friends. It sounds like you practice a different system.
  8. I agree all the active moderation makes it pretty hard to read the thread without using archives as a companion. Having to piece together the thread history from three or four different sites is more than most people will bother with, and I don't blame them. Something to keep in mind is that staff (or at least the moderators) do probably read the posts before taking actions on them, and I will just suggest that there is a non-zero chance certain posts are a topic of lengthy discussion in places normal users don't see. Steve's tweet and the surrounding context is something I think
  9. This might turn out to be really nice. Looking forward to see how it goes.
  10. While it's true that DE has lately been doing a lot of stuff I almost couldn't disagree with more strongly... It's important to have compassion for just how precarious and stressful their situation is right now. The problems they currently face are a fiendishly complicated mixture of world events, industry trends, assorted short- and long-term consequences of their work culture and choices. I think many of the people within DE, if not all, are stressed nearly to the breaking point. Some may have already passed that point. As tempting as it is to continue to criticize and poke fun fo
  11. That's Warframe for you. Look no further than the Guides of the Lotus and the Partner Program. GotL was (until its dissolution) a miniature little NKVD, and the same is true now with the Partner Program. People work tirelessly to compile ammunition for future moves against each other. The rules of the game can change at any moment, without notice to you, and suddenly you are in disfavor with the local Troika. Enjoy GULAG, you naughty anti-revolutionary.
