  1. 2x Starburst from twitch-drop. Good show though
  2. This is a story of a Founder player looking back over the years. I'm not asking for anything, nor am I aiming at criticizing, I’m simply showing a founder side of things in-game. Some people will probably disagree with my story, and they're allowed to, this angle to the game have always been causing stirs throughout, since Founder packs were launched. Stories from other Founders will probably vary too, that is also the beauty of it. I am simply feeling nostalgic and pulling the old 'Deckard Cain' -card ("Stay a while and listen"). Back when Founder packs came out, people were scavenging to get any Mastery Rank XP they could get hands on. Nothing much have changed in that area over the years. People were also quite fascinated by these golden (already from default state) shiny gear with a bit more edge to them than the regular versions or in some cases compared to the most alternatives of their respective type of gear. Skana Prime was especially standing out with its visual imprint compared to most melee form back then. That said, strength-wise both melee and secondary weren’t that strong compared to the competition and was mostly fashion items after getting the Mastery Rank XP from mastering them. Excalibur Prime was of course marginally stronger than the original and now with a shiny head (+ some minor pattern changes), So it remained a contender on the Frame scene. The Excalibur Prime profile icon pictures were also popular either for those loving Excalibur in general or, and probably mainly because of the exclusivity from the icon pictures, back when there mainly were basic pictures of the Frames available. The price tag that followed the Founder packs in its versions received some different feedbacks from players. Some simply said, “Pricy, BUT I WANT IT!!”. I played with some players who saved up over 2-3 months to buy one of the packs. I fell into that category myself as well, since I ended up buying the Grand Master Founder pack and was still a working student back then. Most Founders I talked to simply considered the Design Council Forum section and Chat tab as added boons from the purchase. While the Founder packs were still available the Founders were greeted with different responses to their purchase and use thereof, but mainly two types of responses were common. Some players approached Founders with fascination and awe and often wanted them themselves, others were badmouthing them quite bad like show-offs or rich kids and connecting Founder players to a part of the game they considered Pay2Win. Some cases went as far as treating Founders as cheaters and slandered them without it having anything to do with the actual person’s actions besides the Founder pack purchase (ridiculous as it may sound). Through the years Founders have often turned to either showing-off their Founder status with honour and ignored all the hateful remarks occasionally coming their way, others got fed up with the hating and hid their Founder gear and picture, so it only showed on their profile. I did hear on one occasion that one Founder left the game entirely, because the remarks had destroyed his ability to enjoy the game anymore. That was probably 3 years back now. That said, some did go under the radar entirely and haven’t heard any remarks to them being a Founder. After the packs were gone a lot of players were sad they missed their chance to get one of the Founder packs, some took it with fascination when they some of the gear show up in groups with other playing occasionally, others were going almost frantic about Founders having an unfair advantage with exclusive gear with Mastery Rank XP. At one point in time I was running low of weapon slots and since the Skana Prime was stat-wise close to a starter melee, I sold it. Of course, I sort of regret that decision all this time later since I can’t get it back, but it would still only had been a fashionable object. The Lato Prime did manage to stay in my collection throughout the years, which led to a decent competitive option with a strong riven, mainly due to a buff it received many years later. Excalibur Prime have also stayed in my collection over the years, although no one can recognize it if I use it with other colours or attachments than the default settings for the Frame and assume it’s a regular version Excalibur, possibly due to Founders being a remnant of another time in this state of the game’s life cycle. I kept on using the Excalibur Prime profile picture throughout the years partly for its exclusivity and the fact I never collected many those icon pictures. I do use it for a functional purpose though, I use it to get into talks with the occasional Founder I meet in public groups, since we quickly recognize each other when we see those icon pictures, even if we aren’t using any of the Founder gear at the time. With the release of Excalibur Umbra and the documentary about Warframe’s development. Players throughout Warframe brought two new tendencies and opinions to view. General players started calling Excalibur Prime for an ugly and weak version of the Umbral version and only showed little resentment over the Master Rank XP part. A lot of players started taking note again when they saw a founder and started contacting them to say thanks for them buying Founder packs back when they did. Founders in general do feel Excalibur have been left in the dirt as the game developed and everything came more detailed, intricate and shinier one after the other. We have often tried to petition Excalibur Prime to get a slight update over the years, but when I founder have spoken up either on forum or stream, they have been met by a huge backlash by the community. With players annoyed by founders or fearing Excalibur Umbra will lose its shine, most founders have given up on that topic after many attempts, realizing that we’re simply a minority with an unpopular opinion. I might have gotten a more grey tint to my hair since back when I clicked that button to support this game as a Founder, but the game has certainly gotten more fluid, smooth and shiny over the years, and I’m less likely to encounter a bug compared to back in the early days (it is true, so don’t give me weird responses about this in the comments). Thanks for entertaining me over the years.
  3. Tennocon 2019 Shoulder Plates on Gauss are angled further towards the front, than to the sides
  4. Increased drop rates, but as the drop table shows for the saturn six mask, the drop is only a singular entry, so for those missing only the mask, the lower level mission gives the same chance for the mask as the higher level mission. Either that or it's an error in the drop table?
  5. Those who successfully completed the 40-wave defense prior to the change, who also have eximus-act showing now, were their progress forfeited and have to do this act too or can it be ignored?
  6. I've still got the rare fishes from plains -one and 3 wages in index although I've already completed them and everything seemed fine until checking nightwave later. Can you give feedback on that issue if it's a bug we can ignore and the standing have been given or how we have to react to them?
  7. 1660972 - [closed] - Map hole 1671222 - [closed] - Mob def terminal placed inside tileset object.
  8. What do I have to do (mission or challenge) or buy in market in due time, to get Wisp's alt helmet WITHOUT that terrible cloth on her back. (Ass and sexiness remarks aside) I find it trashing the appearance of an otherwise exquisite looking warframe with that alt helmet change.
  9. Without that duration, 2nd ability is still as far reaching as 3rd or 4th ability. Upwards to 4 seconds delay instead of instant when you still need complete hitbox line of sight to each target, doesn't add up to much with excess range, especially when they have to stay alive in that time for you to get the effect.
  10. Several seconds delay (2sec base + whatever duration added from modding) on a recovery skill that you have to time with when mobs are in line of sight and whom you also expect to stay alive until you receive the recovery, while now with lower defenses. This is just playing with insane handicap. Also, my current build: Duration: 13% Efficiency: 160% Range: 175% Strength: 224% I have no idea what you are talking about with trash range, my range is fine
  11. I find her to be a fun new warframe to play. She still have some kinks to work out. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ___Strengths___ Skill synergy using 2nd, before or during 3rd/4th skill and being able to use 1st skill during 4th skill channeling. She gives some variation to energy starved or energy reset missions like sanctuary onslaught or index. Tried her out in a lowlvl defense mission where some new players joined and they were all "What is that ray of death?! That is so cool". So she certainly is impactful on people meeting her. 2nd ability provides some mitigation to mob scaling and not just by damage scaling. Her ability to recover shields by her own means (2nd skill and idling)(only realistic means too though). -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ___Weeknesses___ If a mob is partially standing behind something so that you for instance can't see a grineer's foot, but the rest of him is visible (thigh, torso, arms, weapons, head all visible), then he can't be targeted by her 3rd or 4th ability. Ex from mission run last night: Stood on a small single square crate in a defense mission at one point and a corpus crewman ran over to the crate from afar while 3rd ability was active, without getting hit (melee'd him in the end). The mob was fully visible and in line of sight the entire time, but because that small elevation difference, the crate's edge was enough to block the ability from activating. She's rather noisy for other players to be near. Can't determine if her 2nd ability doesn't always work or if the targeting is so restricted that only a mob jumping high into the air (ex jumping to a platform) with nothing in its surroundings will be guarenteed hit by the ability (if applicable). If you activate her 4th ability during a jump you won't know where you'll end up. Tried activating it while jumping over a crevice that normally isn't an issue, but 4th ability simply made her unescapably slowly hover straight down into the crevice until she was out of bounds. A bit unclear which attacks actually bypass her shields. With her 2nd ability useless against infested and generally are without overshields as a result, several types of infested bypass shields with their attack. Can't use weapons nor 2nd ability while 4th ability is active. External resupply of shields from energy drops or shield pads are just about worthless to her. The pale matt texture on more than half her frame, limits what colors that works with her (not to mention attachments since their colors aren't even similar). A shame since it seemed like a very small area of metallic appearance was achieved in her design (she could had handled more). Duration is such a limiter on her 2nd ability that it isn't even funny. This should be instant and non-affected by duration. I'm currently playing with only 13% duration, simply because I wasn't getting her skill to work decently until I changed my build and ripped all the duration off I could. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that she has her own dash animation instead of roll, it would be cool if you build onto that. doesn't seem so much as an evasion anymore than more a tackle. perhaps a knockdown added to it, would seem fitting.
