  1. The way to fix it, is to let them fix it right, get the system working so that it can be put on a regular schedule the way they seem to have intended in the first place. OP is mixing the worst parts of both systems and offering it as a recurring thing. Limited time alerts = excluding most players from any given alert. Large nitain drops = rapidly negating nitain as a reason to play more often.
  2. Here's the part that contains that bit: "Will the stalker and lotus join forces?" is a question that we can discuss, the answer seems to be "for now". "Will the stalker and lotus keep fighting?" is another, the answer maybe "yeah probably, our syndicate budfies keep trying to kill us, so why not". But whatever the heck that block of text that took a detour into "this makes him our space father" and, Ballas and whatever else is just a block of distilled delusional rambling.
  3. Because that's the in thing to believe according to youtube.
  4. Honestly, I figure that Nightwave shouldn't have awarded potatoes in the first place. I was happy to see them there because it meant easier potatoes for newbs and that's one of huge leaps in power. But I see now that it set up false expectations of ease, and they took up creds that would have been better spent elsewhere for the newbs. They should have been kept for GOTL rewards. It would suck for older players to have next to nothing to spend their creds on, but I understand now that when given free reins, people are prone to making bad decisions, and blaming others for the consequences of their poor choices.
  5. I've always suspected the Orokin times decorations, and the sentient cores decorations. We don't know how either really works, and each could be a Trojan Horse, just waiting for the chance to corrupt our orbiters and dojos.
  6. Q: Does the ffxi economy feature consumable items, made by one player and used by another? Do items need to be repaired or replaced? If the answer to either of these questions is "yes" then the system that works for them will not work well in warframe.
  7. Sounds like they replace all the sigils on all of the frames they have, for some reason.
  8. That "only a letter grade isn't proper feedback" falls apart when the letter grade is an A+ or A* or whatever your local grading system uses to denote a perfect grade. At that point the only feedback that applies is praise as there's no significant way to improve upon it. Based on the original post here it looks like they're assigning such a grade based on the enjoyment they have received. Personally I agree with most people that there are things that suck and I wish that they could fix those, but since it's a purely subjective issue, I can't tell the OP that they're wrong. All we can do is try to ask why they feel that way.
  9. *Looks at what got them banned* *Looks the name of the OP* Yeah, somehow I'm not really buying that this really came as a surprise.
  10. Vaykor Sydon. Players gain bonus 50% chance to resist Knockdown or knockback when wielding the Vaykor Sydon. While everyone else is complaining about the knockdown mechanic being out of control you'll be wondering what all of the fuss was about.
  11. Emphasis added. The items cost more in trade, because they're less common. The system you propose would make them far more common. This would lower the price that people sell them for. This means less platinum for you as a seller. This means that sellers will not get as much for their trades. This means that when they are trying to buy stuff they have less platinum to do so, and that's not a good thing. Overall the economy suffers.
  12. How are they not aware of being host? It literally shows you the pecking order by telling you who's 1, 2, 3 and 4. 1 leaves and the rest of you stay = host migration, and 2 will probably be the next host. Anyone else leaves and you stay = no host migration for you. 1 leaves and you leave with them = no host migration for you. Occasionally host will migrate at random and you get booted to orbiter = catastrophic failure. Casual observation of these things will make the system obvious in very short order. Apart from that: Emphasis added. WiFi is prone to interference from external sources. Running cable or even using Ethernet over powerline is a much better idea. Really?
  13. Uhhhhhhhhhh, and if you missed that one as well? I remember playing with a guy who was around longer than I, and had higher MR, he saw a Vauban alert and got worked on up about it, and said we should do it right away. Turned out he'd been trying to get that part for months and just kept missing it. He seemed a bit heart broken when I pointed out that I had all of the parts already. As @M3tallius said, it really was an unfair system. With NW, we had a window of at least a week, and I don't know if any given reward didn't show up at least twice, but I'd be a bit surprised if they hadn't. This was countered by the fact that there was so much standing that had you indeed done all of the challenges you'd have been done with tier 30 in well under 7 weeks, and left to twiddle your thumbs for over a month. Or you could have played at a much more sedate rate and gone well past tier 30 by week 11. In reality there were just over 11 weeks. 28k per week would have safely carried past the 300k mark. Off the top of my head I think that the total challenge standing worked out to be closer to 513k than the estimated 430k. (The first part-week was worth something like 40k because it didn't have all of the dailies and then I think that there were 11 Sundays not including the 19th. I could be wrong and you can double check me on it.) I think that meant something like a possible 333k standing, exclusive of the elite weeklies. Playing 2 days a week excluded you from something like 11 or 12k of that total. So you would probably only get to rank 32 if you were unable to collect any standing from the fugitives. If you counted just the 10 weeks plus one partial, you would fall squarely between the 60-65 % of total standing value that was originally floated. With the full 11+part it dropped to below 60%, which probably explains how it was possible to make it to tier 60. So in practice, yes, you definitely could. That was also true the last time. Part of it seems to be getting the code optimised for each which delayed Fortuna quite a bit for us, and getting it through cert adds another delay. That's probably a big part of why they did that huge code overhaul that was supposedly to get us on the universal code, and why we have to deal with the horrible cursors that would work better for a mouse input on the consoles. But in fairness that was before Switch came along, so who knows.
  14. I'm curious to know why you think this. We don't need to be on the same page as PC, just a similar build, like last time. You got your thermia fractures event (and all associated content) before we did which meant that there were differences between our experiences but it worked out just fine. Yes.
  15. No mate. I read just fine. You see demanding that they "make a full comeback, but only part of the time", isn't really any better. In fact it's probably going to be even more annoying to have to code, which means that it'll take more time, that could be spent getting the nightwave system into a workable state. Take a moment to think about it.
  16. Probably this part that he quoted? ☝️ The relevant part remains relevant. My reason for speaking up remains the same. I believe that the demands that people are making here would be a retrograde step, waste of resources and time could be better spent getting the nightwave system working. I'm arguing that the people who make the game be allowed to do what they do, because they are the only ones who actually know what's going on behind the curtain. I believe that the demands are based largely on irrational responses to the current situation, and blatantly dishonest claims made in the title and repeatedly throughout the thread wherein people have claimed that we cannot farm nitain, and that there have been no alerts giving us nitain. Have fun playing your game, Tenno. But remember that playing is totally different to designing and coding.
  17. Dude, why are you sitting here making sense? Can't you see that the point is to just bash the delays, that may or may not have been actual delays? There's absolutely no reason making well reasoned posts about easily confirmed facts! /s But seriously... 👍
  18. No, it's aka, "wtf are you on about? The sky isn't falling, you were standing under an oak tree and an acorn hit you on the head. Stop trying to make it out to be the end of the world." I don't have to try to disprove suggestion that "billions" and "around 200" are equivalent, nor that "10 might as well be 1000". And just because the gap hasn't been handled the way you want, doesn't mean that they've left us out to rot. They used the current alert system to supply a very generous amount of nitain in the meantime while working on getting NW 2 up and running. If you aren't looking forward to the forum rage in the future, then why are you actively making demonstrably false, inflammatory statements to try and promote such behaviour? I clearly do, I can probably even pronounce it correctly. And you just got a major update, and the associated content is still being farmed. Also we always had to wait for nitain. We still have quite a bit of "extra randomised content" as you'd know if you had been the sort of person who does those, so that's not so much hyperbole as flat out dishonesty. And last but not least, let me ask you what percentage of the alerts you figure you would do on a regular basis. I'm going to go ahead and guess single digits until you get back to me with your guestimate. Well seeing as how the claim has been repeatedly made that there were no alerts at all, and no way to earn nitain, admitting that was untrue is a huge step in the right direction, Tenno. Soon you might even be able to admit that alt helmets aren't really a pivotal piece of equipment for progression in the game, and that if they're also not available, you can scratch off quite a bit of the "nitain needed to craft items list" until Nightwave2 gets off the ground. Weird. There's at least one dude who made it to tier 60. I was at prestige 10 because I just didn't bother with most of the challenges for the last month or so because I had other stuff on my plate. Really should have been quite a bit higher than that if I'd stuck with it. I am glad that you admit that you didn't pay plat for the ones that you got. Because most folks would probably agree that "opportunity cost" isn't something that you actually pay and really doesn't count towards "not free". Was it nitain? Please tell me it was nitain that you spent it on. I mean sure some folks did buy up extra aura mods to share out to the newbs, I know did, but made sure that I found room for potatoes and a hefty chunk of nitain. One way or the other, what that tells me is that you seldom did alerts leading up to nightwave1.
  19. You mean before today? It would have been February 10th for you.
  20. Would work better if you were able to show that you actually belong to a large group, as opposed to a highly vocal minority. I asked you to do that but..... And here's the thing, there are tens of thousands of us showing up in the game at any given moment. There seem to be thousands of people who use the forums. The majority is apparently silent. Of the vocal minority, many even seem to be likely people who are unlikely to be facing undue hardship at this time. A quick glance at the title and posts in this thread shows that many taking issue, are intellectually dishonest enough to act as though we didn't recently have an alert giving away 10 nitain. Many also falsely claim that its impossible to get nitain outside of the alerts..... Which brings us to: Nope. I saw your point but believe it to be spurious. We're facing what has every appearance of being a temporary scarcity, after a period that shared it out in abundance, and before what we can expect to be another bounty. And to ease the burden for those of us who actually need it, they gave us a very healthy amount to help tide us over. Nice use of hyperbole to pretend that they didn't give us 10 nitain just a week ago. You mean, exactly like they did? As for not getting even more free potatoes, do you want to let us know how many you got during nightwave? Just the ones from the cred store. We can pretend that the ones from the gift of the Lotus and the tiers didn't happen. Asking because you brought it up.
  21. What are you talking about? Alerts required us to be able to log in to the game at a moments notice, or for extended periods of time, or miss out. With nightwave, logging in on 2 days a week for a couple of hours, was enough to do all but one of challenges. If you logged in every day you could have spread the challenges out and gotten a couple done on any given day, just taking your sweet time about it. We needed to do so little that you could easily have completed it doing absolutely no elite challenges at all, or if you could do some of them, then you shaved the number of weeks down to maybe 6 or 7 leaving you with a month or more of "yeah I don't feel like doing any challenges this week". And even then you're probably going to gain some of them passively. Your argument against it is literally stuff that was made up, and pushed extensively by irrational people who insisted on trying to grind all of the challenges ASAP to get to max tier because of their irrational FOMO. And that's after we were explicitly told that we would only need to do around 60-65% of the standing in any given week. Among the highly vocal critics there were people claiming that the challenges were all unbearably onerous chores, despite the challenges representing a large swath of the game. When asked what in-game activities aren't a chore in their eyes, at least one was unable to name even a single thing. When players seem to actively hate the vast majority of the game, and you even get complaints about "use an emote and we'll give you free stuff", it's probably a good idea to start making a list of names of people who don't seem to be actually playing the game, and who're only interested in screaming about how terrible everything is, how disrespected they feel, and turning the forums into their own personal echo chamber, all while demanding ever more free stuff.
  22. Beautiful ad hominem. Doesn't actually address any of the points in the previous posts though. You chose to be offended on behalf of other people and based the majority of your arguments based on fallacies, despite being a living example of people who don't actually have a problem.
  23. Really? But a 'potential' couple of hundred posters = the majority of players in the game? Oh I get it, it's only good faith if you do it. That's because I don't have to support the strawman that you claim I support. Now pay close attention: Because the restriction is obviously the result of an unintended delay, caused by a change in plan, made to try and accommodate the whiners who complained vociferously for every minor reason that they could find, many of which were pretty unreasonable to begin with. The claim that we currently have no way of getting nitain is false, and the claim that there wasn't any alert for it recently was also false. The entire "omg the sky is falling, we don't know when Nightwave is going to start back, if ever, whatever will we dooooooooooooooooo" line that many people are going on about is irrational and ridiculous. Because it's neither necessary, nor efficient. Demanding that they stop working on the improvements they already started on, to do what you a person with no idea of what's going on behind the curtain want, will waste everyone's time. That's a huge negative, and the only reason you can't see it is the hubris that is equally apparent in all of your other unfounded claims. Why should I voice my opposition to the lot of you demanding retrograde steps? Because I would really rather not sit quietly in the bus while you demand that the driver go over the cliff "because it'll be faster". After all you're claiming that the reason you have majority is that most people haven't spoken up to tell you that your idea sucks. What a shock. How many people are we talking about here?
  24. Gee I wonder if potentially needing billions compared to 200 might just have something to do with that? What do you think? You really gonna sit there and pretend to have no clue? Were you around on the forums at all during nightwave? People were complaining about having to do anything at all. There were complaints about having to deploy a glyph. And asking us to "play with a friend or clanmate" produced levels of screeching so intense that millions of years from now civilizations around distant stars will probably say whatever their equivalent of "wtf" is. And don't even talk about having to change damage types to deal with an enemy that had a pretty high chance of showing up in high level missions. The naysayers said nay so often, that the forum became one enormous echo chamber. They didn't even realize that a lot of the time their complaints were self contradictory, "the wolf doesn't spawn enough for me to take a weapon to deal with him" was posted by the same people screaming "I'm fed up with the wolf spawning in and having to abort mission all the time". DE was accused of ignoring the feedback, despite making changes midseason, and decided to overhaul the challenges. They've posted about the changes that they're working on for everyone to see. But you're here saying "we don't know why they delayed it so long"? Come on, buddy, don't you think that would be an answer to the deep mysteries that you seem to think elude reasonable explanation?
