    I live in the Dominican Republic, which, mind you,  it actually is a third world country fly speck of an island in the Caribbean. You couldn't have chosen a worse possible reference in order to sustain your argument. It's even funny how accurate you were. 

    Got news for you, boyo. I'm in Trinidad. You know, the opposite end of the the chain. Hispanola is huge compared to us, and I suspect, a mere stone's throw from North America along the Amx undersea cable unless you picked up and moved your island recently. So you sure you want to compare island sizes between the Greater Antilles and the Lesser Antilles? Or connections? That won't go as well as you think. 

    That Amx cable is also probably why you have lower latency between the Americans and yourself than to the other Tenno in the DR. I have the same problem, but a much longer pipeline via Americas 1/Americas 2, before I can find a point in common with other Trini Tenno, somewhere up in Florida or wherever despite being able to walk to their houses in a reasonable amount of time.

    That's a non-issue since I don't care about the region of players I'm playing with. I am currently limited to North America anyway due to my extremely low PING limit settings so I can try to host as many times as possible, so I don't care if I can't play with people from Europe.  

    Sorry but that not caring about the region of players is a major issue. It explains why you think that dedicated servers are a solution.

    You think that the server will be in your back yard and your ping times will be negligible. It'd be a vastly different tune, I suspect, if you lived in a developing country, out in the third world, on a tiny, fly speck of an island. Or on Australia which due to the sheer distance from every other continent makes for much more significant pings. Or even on the opposite side of a continent from the dedicated server that you've convinced yourself will be thee solution to all your woes.

    Why did I load in faster?... I have an Ssd on my console. Maybe that's why. Probably if I hadn't loaded in that tiny bit faster I would have lost my progress as well. It's your software. It's your responsibility to not screw over your players. 

    Look I know it is probably a double post but I was going to dinner earlier and couldn't be bothered, but let me show you how I know that you don't really grasp how hosting works. Take a look at what you wrote there. 

    It's BS. You got host because you were player 2. That's how the game resolves it. Host leaves, player with the next highest number gets host. So Host = player1, next host = player2, then player3, and finally player4.

    You want to know what screwed them out of their rewards? Their craptastic connections to you. 

    And like I said we know that they have craptastic connections because:

    The response I get? "Bull *" says one player "This is the fourth time today. I just wasted a half hour on nothing." "Nah" says the other "This happens to me constantly."

    Like I said those should have raised huge red flags for you when you were writing your original rant. But they didn't because you refused to accept that connection issues are an issue. 

     

    You've shown that you don't really grasp the fundamental principles of what you're ranting about. Maybe go back to the drawing board and make sure that you have the basics covered?

    Nor are they popular opinions. They're beliefs held by a niche so... maybe have a point next time?

    Your dealer must really be giving you the good stuff if you believe the stuff you've been saying.

    You mean the one you acknowledge is true? To paraphrase what you said: "get out of it what you put into it". And you full well know and acknowledge that a lot of people want to put nothing into it.

    Then that's exactly what you'll get out of it. What did you expect, thugs to show up at your door to try and force you to enjoy it? DE can't afford that. Maybe get some of your friends to dress up and try to help you out? 

    Seriously nobody is going to force you to socialize. If you choose to you can, and you would get more out of the experience. You choose not to. Again that's a "you problem".

    Except that the idea here isn't to try and lead the horse to water, it's literally trying to force the horse to drink.

    Newp. You don't want to, so don't. Just like I no longer wish to pander to you, so I won't. It won't stop me from interacting with others, but hey that's how it works right? 

    Would have been so much better if you had stopped and thought that the forum is a form of social interaction and all that that implies too. But I guess irrational thought doesn't follow rational patterns. Either way you get to not deal with it anymore. 😉

    I have a working knowledge of how the internet works. This has nothing to do with the internet connection. Find another avenue to attack the issue on or stop bothering me.

    Buddy everything involving the internet is predicated based on the connection between machines. If you are having trouble grasping how that works, then Dunning-kruger has something to tell you.

    The fact that it's brought up that often is a pretty compelling reason to seriously consider a change. It shows the amount and level of support for the idea. Thus the frequency of the posts undercuts your point.

    "The world is flat" and "vaccines cause autism" are brought up often by the irrational and uneducated. Neither is true or factual, and they are proof that apparent popularity is not a good or even compelling reason to institute sweeping changes.

    The continued support for it in and of itself is something fundamental that likely deserves to be addressed. And making a bad decision for a bad reason doesn't make the reason or decision any less bad the longer you stick to it.

    See above. Also see any basic, entry level economics text to explain why infinite supply and highly finite demand are a recipe for disaster.

    No poop.

    People who want to interact will, and those who don't still won't.

    That's the point. You're explicitly pointing out why DE's reason doesn't hold water.

    No poop whatsoever, unlike the rather poopy point that I responded to where you suggested that trading doesn't lead to any meaningful interactions. That's like a spoiled child sitting in the corner with their hands over their ears screaming so they don't need to hear what people have to say, and then complaining that they didn't interact with anyone at the birthday party. If you admit that you are the only impediment to blame for your lack of interaction that's not the damning indictment of the system you think it is. It's just another example of a 'you problem'. 

    29 minutes ago, (XB1)HAPPYHapyJ0YJoy said:

    Which means using the system as a means to get people to interact, by your own admission, is an abject failure, and doomed to be nothing but that. This makes it a bad reason.

    "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink" isn't the same as "yeah that water is not potable and will kill you if you drink it". Try to figure out the difference.

    First, people should tell DE? This is a feedback thread. That's what this thread and the others like it are doing. It's antithetical to tell someone to communicate the idea to DE while also trying to shut the thread down with, " But DE said!" or "Use search!" Especially when search is pointless, since if someone finds and old thread and tries to add their voice to it people will simply whine about thread necros or the beatings of dead horses.

    Wouldn't happen if what they had to say wasn't the 657,345th rehashing of the same thing that has been dealt with each and every time. Which is something that happens because everyone thinks they have discovered something absolutely new that nobody has thought about before. 

    1 hour ago, (XB1)HAPPYHapyJ0YJoy said:

    Secondly, the fact that DE have said something in the past is irrelevant. Only the ignorant and arrogant aren't open to changing their minds, and only people looking to change careers are dead set on ignoring their customers. The more people who speak up about something, the more people who make their opinions known, the more likely someone, and DE themselves, are apt to change their minds. And this is not some unprecedented event; the recent revert on farming changes comes to mind, so does backtracking on the universality of universal medallions.

    People who change their minds just because they've changed their underwear usually don't make sound choices. Unless something fundamental has changed in the intervening time, the reasons presented for having the position probably still exist. 

    The farming changes, something changed shortly before they did that. It produced a significant effect that was unanticipated and caused them to review the whole shebang with a fine toothed comb. 

    Those medallions are a stopgap measure because a number of people refused to accept the offer of "temporary Umbra effects on your choice of frames". DE rushed to implement it in place of the better reward they had planned to give us. Are you surprised that a rushed job wasn't fully thought out? 

    1 hour ago, (XB1)HAPPYHapyJ0YJoy said:

    Lastly, of course people "interact", they have no real choice. That "interaction" however only matters if it's meaningful and adds something to the game. I've made plenty of random trades and none have led to any meaningful interactions...

    "WTB [blank]" , [invite], [instance change], [trade window], "[blank] has left the instance"

    ...when that's how basically all trades with random go, you aren't adding anything to the game by forcing that on people. Any better interactions you've had were obviously from people who were looking to interact and would have as easily happened in a PUG or elsewhere; people not looking to interact aren't going to in all but the shallowest, most meaningless manner. You're sacrificing efficiency and convienece for something that doesn't enrich the game in the slightest.

    Yup that's what you get when that's all you put into it. Nobody here needs to kowtow to be your buddy. But I've traded with people who were quite ok with being put on a friendlist for the possibility of future trades. I've bought stuff from people who gave me advice on how to get the item for myself. I've gotten free items tossed in, and upgraded mods just because I was talking to the seller while waiting to load in for the trade. 

    So, turns out that if you're not a complete introvert who shuns all possibility of human interaction, the odds are pretty good that you are actually able to interact with the people you come across in the game. Quelle surprise. 

     

    So... My anecdotes refute your anecdotes. Got anything else to talk about?

    Now I'm a bit confused. FrostDragon seems rather okay to me. Are you maybe talking about the OP? I'm lost, as I don't get who you are calling a troll.

    Nope OP seems to just be naïve, I'm talking about frostdragon. A lot of his posts got purged from the previous thread and for good reason. 

    He'd insist that people answer specific questions, and when done dismiss the answers because they didn't fit his narrative. He'd refuse to answer basic questions about the examples he claimed exist, telling people to google it and find out for themselves. He clearly indicated that he was more than happy to hurl insults at the people who disagree with him despite being informed that we do have a TOS.

    .Here's a suggestion - if it bothers you that much that people ask the same question over and over again, write a comprehensive response. Now save that to a text file, maybe upload it to Dropbox or Sky or Google Docs or whatever. Next time someone makes the same suggestion, copy-paste that response. Or alternately, start a thread on the matter, bookmark it and drop a link next time another suggestion comes up. Responding with "No, and you go figure out why not" is unproductive.

    I've seen someone doing that on previous auction house threads. Maybe if you try the search tool you'd find several copies of his post with detailed explanation of why supply and demand make an auction house the death knell for Warframe.

  10. 57 minutes ago, WhiteMarker said:

    Didn't say that. I said that DE has things in mind for the game, a vision. And if an auction house doesn't fit their vision then it's unlikely that these threads will change that. As I said before, you don't have to be a genius to come up with the idea of an auction house. DE came up with it and didn't want to implement it. So for players to convince DE they have to come up with a really revolutionary idea. And I'm not really seeing that happening anytime soon.

    Dude, forget about him, he's a troll that just can't wrap his head around how supply and demand in warframe differs from the real world. When he can't make a valid point he attacks in ways that make it clear that he has no intention of following the TOS for the forums. 

    A basic entry level economics textbook or course would show the effect of infinite supply and highly finite demand on any economy. Auction houses would be the ruin of our economy because of the lack of enforced demand, which is a thing in most of the other economies where auction houses which use premium currency have succeeded. 

    Anyone who can't admit that it will cause a permanent crash in prices of most items, really shouldn't be allowed to waste everyone's time with their nonsense. And that's the sort of person who you're dealing with. Just put him on ignore and let him self-destruct like he did in the other thread.

    I'm just going to finally come out and say it.

    It isn't anything to do with connection. It has never had anything to do with connection. 

    Anyone who thinks it has anything to do with connection... And let me put this as clearly is possible, is wrong. Demonstrably, emphatically, wrong. 

    This is 100% on DE because they allow it to happen. They could easily prevent it from happening. Anyone who makes any game that has peer to peer systems can prevent this from being an issue. More over this is something that any other game would not be allowed to make it through their first month without having a software solution to prevent it from happening. 

    Look. I'm going to put this simply for you. In any industry. Any. Industry. The party responsible is always the business, never the customer. That's not day 1 business school. That's something they expect you to know by the time you graduate kindergarten. 

    It is a very, very simple issue. Question 1. Is there an issue that is negatively effecting your customers when they are using your product or service? The answer here is "YES". There for we proceed to question 2. Is there something that the business operator can do to mitigate or eliminate this problem without significant expense or effort? Yes. If at any point the answer to both of those questions is "yes", then the business or service provider always. ALWAYS. Retains 100% of the responsibility. This isn't a discussion. This isn't an opinion. It is a fact. It does not matter if it happened because someone has weak internet. It only matters that it happened. It isn't the customer's responsibility. Let me say that again. IT IS NOT THE CUSTOMER'S RESPONSIBILITY. To have to be concerned about losing progress if a connection drops or someone quits early. It is entirely DE's responsibility to make sure it doesn't happen, and it isn't hard to do, it is actually extremely easy. 

    Can the nonsense about connections. You're wrong. I can't put it any more simply than that. You are wrong. Find another angle, one that makes even the tiniest bit of sense, to attack the topic on, and maybe I'll consider the point you make. There is no validity to saying this has anything to do with connection because DE can prevent that being a problem and there for has a responsibility to do so if that is the only issue. 

    So find another excuse. But connection is not a valid one. Period. 

    FFS, seriously ask someone to explain how the internet works. Tell them to use very small words.

    That's interesting. Because you're pretending that it's a real thing, infecting real people, when in reality it's just part of a "video game". 

    See how that works?

    The bottom line is: the people using trade chat are the problem. Not the discounts on PS4, not WF market. It's these people and their prices.

    I get the same excuse "Its a free market" over and over again, as if it fixes anything.

    I agree that it's the people on trade chat who are a problem. Specifically the people who think that we should pay whatever ridiculous price they're asking for junk we can get cheaper elsewhere. 

    Know anyone who fits that description? Because everyone else is busy selling their stuff and making plat a little bit at a time. 

    And the free market doesn't need to fix anything for you. But I suspect that if you set the greed aside, you'd find that you can easily make quite a bit of plat even if all you get is 1-2 plat per item. 


  15. Maybe DE should work on a basic education program titled "How the internet actually works (spoiler: it's not magic)". Because seriously some of the nonsense people come up with when they're writing these threads is just unsettling. 

    Absolutely nobody has ever said that host migrations never happen. We've all said that they happen more to people with crappy internet connections. And hey when someone like me, living on an island in the third world tells you that they don't have as many problems as you're making it seem like you have, then you can bank on your internet connection being really bad regardless of what you think it "should" be. 

    And yes @(PS4)Black-Cat-JinxI'm telling you in no uncertain terms that the issue was that the people in your group likely had craptastic connections to one another.

    I mean "this is the 4th time today" and "this happens to me constantly" should be a massive hint for anyone who has more than half a brain. But instead here you are waving it as a triumphant banner as proof that it's not their individual problems? 

    Next time engage logic before ranting, please.

  16. Looks like another request for even more power creep. 

    Look we already have the complaint about the lack of difficulty, and lack of challenge. Players on the upper end of the spectrum had a ball in Fortuna on release, players lower down had serious complaints. Same for arbitrations. 

     

    The difference was due at least in part to having better builds. Most of us know that putting a few forma into our gear ramps us up to levels that the newbs can't even begin to match. 

    Do we really need an additional 'slot' to widen that gap when we won't encounter anything that can stand up to us in normal play?

    So play on PC. That way you can help them to clear up the bugs for those of us who are willing to wait.

    Maybe PC players want to play with their console friends, or their PC performance isn't as good as it is in PS4

    I really don't mind the actual trade chat UI itself. It's fine, y'know? I guess the word is "serviceable". 

    It's the actual people and prices on PS4 that bother me. The only way to get plat in game is to trade, but attempting to trade itself feels counterintuitive and stressful. There's an endless wall of people spamming Rivens, Prime Sets are so devalued that the plat you get won't buy you anything, half of the people you message outright ignore you, the whole thing is just a mess. I shouldn't have to STOP playing the actual game just to wait in the orbiter for hours upon hours just to get a catalyst or something.

    I think an auction house will be cleaner sure, but it won't mitigate any of the real problems in trade chat. The reality is the console market is constipated: Everyone is too lowballer and greedy to sell/buy things at a reasonable price, so as a result, the circulation of plat is virtually nonexistent for a good chunk of the player base.

    If you're lucky, you have to wait until like 2am to meet people who sell sets for what they're actually worth.

    But whatever, I'm just gonna get the same "It's a free market" excuse from the same people who are so cut throat and turned the trade chat into a toxic cesspool of overpriced rivens, beggars and low ballers.

     

    Okay time to get real. Most new players have nothing that anyone who has been around for a while, would really want to buy. Nothing. 

    They can't access the higher tiers of relics. They can't access the higher tier fissure missions. They think that Maroos is actually a good place to set up shop. They think that they are going to making beaucoup bucks selling their wares at high prices. They think that people who are trying to buy prime junk for 1plat to convert to ducats, are scammers. 

    In reality selling prime junk can easily get them 12 plat per day at MR 2, and over 20plat at MR 4.

    The fact that that you believe everyone else in trade chat, to be the problem is a clear indication that you are the source of your own difficulties. 

    There's absolutely nothing hard about getting your trades maxed out in the ps4 trade chat everyday if you just accept that the prices you are looking for are unreasonable and adjusting to suit.

    Yeah, it's just something that I'd prefer they rework before/while making the changes that @Steel_Rooksuggested rather than having to fix it after.

    Yeah, it will probably make it easier to proc Ironclad Charge and might necessitate some changes that people might not like

    ☝️ This is one of two concerns I'd have. The other is that the damage from his charges stack.

    From the wiki:

    If Rhino Charge is successfully cast within a window of 1 second after the previous cast, its damage will be multiplied by 200%, its charge range will be multiplied by 125%, and its energy cost will be reduced by 50%. Any successful cast thereafter will multiply Rhino Charge's damage by 400%, multiply its charge range by 150%, and reduce its energy cost by 75%

     

     Holding would mean that the combo isn't activated and won't stack damage.

    eq  suppose  take   enemy in warframe and make their movement ,shooting pattern dogging  based on a pro player not for all enemy  but for some  like Bombard or something as they spawn less

    i am just curious is this some thing that is possible or am i going mad...

    How do you propose that they program that, if they can't find a way to program even a rudimentary ai that works reasonably well?
