    Dev Workshop: Weapons, Mastery Ranks, and Stats!

    So here’s my question to the DE devs: by confining lower-MR players to lower-performing weapons, are you planning to institute a corresponding MR-based matchmaking? I realize half the hope here is probably to make new players “want that thing so bad” and dream of the day they’re MR8 or 16 or whatever, but new players already spend a lot of time playing Space Ninja Janitor cleaning up behind veterans. Making really solid weapons like the Lex Prime (as an example) gated behind 160,000 mastery points seems like it would be more discouraging than anything, since you’d contribute even less to the mission.

    Yeah, they’re grandfathering players who already own items whose mastery req changes.

    I really like seeing so many good changes to weapons. But that’s speaking as an MR18 player I am not — not — sanguine about the sweeping MR changes firewalling bread and butter weapons that can help new players in harder starchart content. Or that simply make newer players feel like they got something awesome and fun. I know some market purchases can bypass MR requirements; I hope that doesn’t become a universal thing because the optics...not so good.

    Periodic freeze during missions since today's patch...

    Had the “host migration strands me alone” version right after the final bell in an Index match. As a bonus, the mission refused to end. I had to abort and lose rewards. Lots of instability after the update and hotfix.

    Have had repeated host migrations during missions today; the last one was two separate migrations in a mission, which split the squad over three different, new mission instances

    Pink Cyst on Neck is annoying

    You get it from other players, not from the room. Unless you have Nidus, you can't enter the room until you have a fully matured cyst. We have no control over whether it appears on our frames (unless you make sure never to play with a Nidus...ever). And chalk me up as another person who thinks it's a) disgusting, and b) annoying that I can't opt out. I don't care how much mastery you get from a helminth charger, I'm not going to drain the pus of a boil to infect a kubrow egg. That's nauseating.
  7. Interestingly, the mission is about a million times easier on PC than it is on console. Noob archwing on PC and I got it in pass #2; I never managed to beat it on the Xbox, even with a souped up archwing. I think you might even start with an extra minute on the PC version.

    Mission Impossible: "Take the Corpus Arcane Codices"

    One thing to note -- this may not be the optimal way to solve a vault (you miss out on affinity, and you may have to fight defenders), but it is possible to treat vaults like smash-n-grabs rather than stealth missions. Rhino, for instance, can barrel through corpus laser grids if he has Iron Skin on, and he won't be knocked down. Any warframe can roll through them with a minor ding to shields. In any case, pack a bunch of ciphers (I usually keep 20-50 on me at all times), and move fast through the vault to the objective, and you can ignore lasers and tripwires and all that and just brute-force the thing. The key to this approach, of course, is knowing the various vault layouts and how to move directly to the vault objective. It's easier on some vaults than others.

    Console & PC Controller / Gamepad Suggestions

    That did it! Thank you. It's not quite identical to my Xbox account controls, but it's close enough to make no nevermind (I'm still getting used to positioning my hands right for holding crouch, since I usually toggle it, but again...thanks).

    Console & PC Controller / Gamepad Suggestions

    Huh. I have Toggle Crouch bound instead, I'll have to see if Hold to Crouch changes it. Thanks!

    Console & PC Controller / Gamepad Suggestions

    That's weird -- with my controller mapping, the Crouch button won't perform a roll -- only crouching or (if I hold it down) sliding. The mapping options I have only offer Sprint/Roll for the rolling maneuver.

    Console & PC Controller / Gamepad Suggestions

    I'm primarily an Xbox One player, but I recently started up a PC account. I wanted to use a controller, and realized that on PC, Sprint and Roll are bound to a single button instead of Crouch and Roll (which is how it works on Xbox). Perhaps, DE, you could separate Sprint, Roll, and Crouch entirely from each other for PC controller configurations? Or have multiple options? All things considered, Crouch/Roll is more intuitive seeming to me, since they both involve gettin' low.
  14. Not...exactly. You need to use Archwing for the Limbo Theorem quest. You need to use Archwing to fully unlock planets (I think each planet has an Archwing node? Can't remember if they all do, but most do). However, as far as I recall, you can still unlock all the junctions without Archwing -- you just won't be able to deploy extractors to the planets where you haven't completed all the mission nodes.
