Why are people hate Operator that much? what is the true reason? in General Discussion Posted November 17, 2017 @FireSegmentI feel I have some unusual thoughts on the topic but please hear me out. So first lets identify what Operators are not (since POE): 1.Slow- They get four 20m dashes that can ignore gravity. This makes them (in Short bursts) very mobile, even unupgraded. Furthermore this, when chained with bulletjump+roll further increases the possible speed of warframes. 2.Useless- Even aside from the amazing buffs they can give by the virtue of the current mechanics you can use your operators to revive anyone with 100% invulnerability on your Warframe. A massive buff. Similarly you can use their void mode to circumvent predictable damage, wich is more niche but has its applications (Eidolons shout was crafted to showcase this) But there are things they most definitively are: 1.Ugly- Say what you want about the appeal of their teenage look but over time we got attached to our glistening Weapons of mass destruction. A decked out warframe is far prettier than even the best Operators currently have to offer. 2.Weak- Even with all the upgrades they still have to be in void mode to take any amount of hurt and amps barely tickle anything above lvl30 3.Annoying-What happened to "maintaining the balance" of the solar System? Not only do the Operators say things without any relevance, not only is their voice annoying, no it also completely clashes with everything we learned about the lore and is pretty disgusting to boot. So the little kid operating warmachines to get loot tells me the Corpus are a money cult? WTF? I saw myself as a mercenary in it for the money but I guess I can forget that because the kiddo told me so. Completely immersion breaking. However what is perhaps most impactfull for me is that they do not interact with anything else in the game: Weapons you like? Nope, use these 6 new ones. Warframes you like? Irrelevant in missiontypes you are forced to use the operator. Abilities that you find interesting? None of these interact with them. Particularly the inability to buff them makes it hard for me to see them as anything but a nuisance. Even if I wanted to use the operator I have to divide my attention between the ability rotation on my Warframe (the timers of wich disappear in operator mode) and doing whatever I use the Operator for. If the operators were buffable they could do decent damage and allow the players to truly combine Warframe and Operator. Now to be granted the lack of interaction is a fairly new issue, but before that they 100% useless. Now they are useless because they do not have access to any warframe abilites (aside from debuffs, a annoying double standard). Keep in mind that a lot of people are attached to their favorite Warframes (I am a bit more flexible) So for them switching to the operator is what they are offended by. For the silent majority the willingness to try out the operator is probably there, but how if it dies immediately like a piece of wet cardboard and does 0 dmg? As far as I can see it letting all abilities to continue to work with operators and warframes will make them a true alternative. A health buff would be in order too though.
