    It's like when you're at school and everyone catches the same cold all at once.

    Can't wait to see all you lovely devs and Tenno at Pax! For those getting ready to register, Pax prime tickets go on sale soon (immediately?) after Pax East will conclude - so keep your eyes peeled, they're gonna go fast!

    Infested noises and Orbiter - NOT U19 [Megathread]

    Make sure you're listening on headphones is the first thing. The easiest way to hear the fluctuations is by starting on the opposite side of the hallway and walking towards the side where the noises are coming from. You'll notice that the audio doesn't just appear - it slowly fades into hearing range as you walk towards the apparent source.

    Infested noises and Orbiter - NOT U19 [Megathread]

    I was JUST coming to the forums to post about this. Very strange indeed that it's only present near the starboard side of the ship in that one corridor. It's worth noting that the noise track is tuned for spacial dynamics (it has a specific auditory location in stereo, if you rotate your character away from it, or move away/toward it, the sound profile changes accordingly) which means it was codded into the game with specific intention. This doesn't seem like a bug to me in the technical sense.
  8. I don't mean to burst any bubbles but it should be reiterated that pet Kavats are still a few updates out - only the enemy versions are being introduced with 18.5. Don't wanna create any false hype.
  9. He's only wrong on the premise that having another showcase is what's planned or necessary, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be pushed back. Though if it were to be pushed to next week, the devstream would probably also be pushed back as well so that they could barrel down and focus on getting it out asap.

    Feedback On Vulpine Mask Grind And Rapier [Megathread]

    The moderators don't work for DE. So there's that. I'll be the first to stand behind a person or post that is critical of DE and unjustly taken down. ...except I've never seen such a post... ...nor have I ever personally had a post where I was critical of DE removed. (My guess being I was following forum policy - I think that's usually a pretty good strategy) So I really have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Also I forgot to mention, if you just wander right into the feedback forums, you might notice that there are literally hundreds of DE critical threads. Many of which you might also notice, have yet to be taken down for their slanderous language defacing our almighty DE overlords. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go report all of those threads to the mods immediately. Evil is afoot!

    Feedback On Vulpine Mask Grind And Rapier [Megathread]

    Anything regarding Sortie rewards should be stayed for now IMO because they've openly stated they want to explore a new means for acquiring items in the Sortie table. Until such changes, I think discussing anything in regards to them is somewhat moot until we have the system changes in our hands. Until DE says otherwise, it is. The fact of the matter is the acquisition of DE's shares has little to no discernible impact on us as the gamers because Warframe is DE's responsibility. If DE is being strong-armed into trashing the game, then it will show in the game. If DE trashes the game on their own with no prompting from Leyou, it will show in the game. Thus, it absolutely DOES NOT MATTER who trashed the game, be it Leyou or DE. At the end of the day, the quality of the game and its potential decline is on DE's hands - regardless of who is pulling strings behind the scenes (assuming there even is - which they've gone on record saying there isn't). DE are the ones who are accountable, so let's hold them accountable if things go south. Making this about anything else is quite frankly irrelevant.

    2016 Convention Plans Overview.

    Definitely going to try and make pax prime this year - it's so close to me it's pretty dumb not to. Can't wait to see you guys there! Also, anyone know when registration for Pax Prime goes up?

    Partnership Announcement (Further Updates)

    Well, I think the whole thing just goes like this. When we were initially told about this whole deal, there was a lot of uncertainty. It's been well over a year since the whole thing was set in motion, and as far as we can tell the sky hasn't fallen down on us in any spectacular fashion as you might expect if our fears were truly realized. Speaking as a skeptic of this whole debacle since the beginning, I think we as the community really need to actually just pretend like this deal never even happened. Now before you skewer me with your flaming pitchfork, let me explain what I mean. DE is ultimately responsible for the state of Warframe - and we must hold them solely accountable. If it turns out that DE actually sold their soul to the devil or something, it will resonate into the quality of the game. And if that were to happen, only DE would be to blame. And the same goes as if this deal never happened - if DE were to flub it up, we'd be here to call them out on it. China or no China. So, as I said, I think it's in our best interest if we all just disregard these corporate dealings as anything relevant to the player base. If there's a problem with the game, let's address it regardless of who is to blame for said problem.
  14. My entire opinion about direct Chinese integration into Warframe's lore and content is basically: I dunno man, something feels kinda weird here. I think arguing that there's some sort of invasive cultural appropriation happening here is silly. Try to say that Warframe is drifting one way or another in that regard is a splitting hairs contest that isn't worth having. That being said, I think most people would agree, even many "Star Armor" players, that Warframe's initial grab factor is its abstractness. The fact that it is difficult to compare it to any one style or culture or reference is what makes the game interesting from an immersive standpoint. By tying so much content (and no, I don't mean the existing content, I mean all of the future Chinese-based content that is to come) to specific Chinese themes/stories/etc. I think it takes something away from that bit of mystery. I would even go so far as to say that it hurts the Chinese players more in that regard than the rest of the playerbase. I dunno man, something feels weird.

    Coming Soon: Devstream #65, Final 2015 Stream!

    Spoiler free Second Dream question: The Second Dream quest was groundbreaking in ways not thought possible. Love it or hate it, Warframe for many has been completely changed. Much of the lore leading up to the Second Dream quest, while not as monumental, was more or less directly hinting to the huge reveal in the Second Dream. Some of those bits and pieces of lore have been in the game since closed beta. My question to the team is then, was the lore that the Second Dream reveals a recent creation that was designed to tie into everything preceding it, or has it been a part of Warframe since the beginning and we just couldn't see it?

    Remove The Dark Sectors Armistice

    It's a low priority item when weighed against the return on investment to overhaul. Let's not forget, Dark Sectors were already completely reworked once before, and ended up just flopping any way. I wouldn't feel very motivated either to grind out a Dark Sectors 3.0 when the concept execution more or less failed twice already, AND there is an excruciatingly long list of other projects that are arguably much more pressing and important. At the end of the day, it's just not worth it.

    Some Kind Of Auction House? [Megathread]

    OP, sorry but I would refrain from making threads about AHs. Unfortunately they all very quickly turn into the same discussion time and time again. "Hey guys what do you think about an auction house in Warframe? How do you think it co-" "LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU AUCTION HOUSES ARE THE DEVIL. WHY? BECAUSE THEY ARE. LALALALA I'M STILL NOT LISTENING..." So if you're looking for a thoughtful, non-abrasive discussion about auction houses, you won't find it on the Warframe forums I'm afraid. Your time is better spent elsewhere, trust me.

    Fellas. No T-Bagging In The Conclave, Please.

    When you tell someone to not do something, it just makes them want to do it more. Nice going.

    [Poll] What Is Your Experience With Conclave?

    I want to enjoy PvP, but I'm starting to think perhaps PvP just isn't for Warframe. Or at least, as long as DE allows customization and mobility at the scope that it's currently at, it will never truly shine. But in the same way, if you strip all that away, you strip everything unique to Warframe from the mode as well. Which is why after all these iterations and reworks I do not think PvP in Warframe will ever really be something I will enjoy or feel motivated to play. It's been a long road since PvP became a thing, and yet I still feel like it hasn't made any progress. Nobody's fault - just the way it is.
  20. This is very disheartening. It's unclear as to what the extent of the conversation was from this vantage point, but I don't think there's a situation where comments like that from DE are justified nor warranted. Could have been handled very differently. What a shame.
  21. I can't speak for most, but many such as my self don't necessarily care about the actual changes to the model themselves. If they want to divvy up items in the packs like this then so be it. Fine sure whatever, that's their decision and I hope they're happy with it. What I and many others are not content with is the shadiness of this whole process. No prior notice. No clarification or explanation as to the reasons why. Amending established precedents without any acknowledgement. THAT is the problem here.
  22. THIS^^^ Is the type of thing that boggles me. They want to try a new internal business structure for PA? Fine. They want to modify precedents about PA? Fine. They want to do all of this, with clear intent, without even the slightest heads up beforehand or acknowledgement of it afterwards? Nuh-uh, that ain't gonna fly. It's DE's game and they can do whatever they want with it, but I don't support them so long as they are not proactively transparent about issues like these. An explanation is all most of us want - then later we can have a discussion as to whether or not it's the right direction for the game or its business model. No one benefits when things look shady.

    Wait.. So Typhus Is Making It In Game ? O.o

    The thing people need to understand is that if 'Typhus' or any such derivative of the concept were to be pursued, he/she/it would be vastly different from the fan conceived concept. Period. The frame would look and play to DE's own standards and opinions of what a similar concept should look and feel like. Many people will see what DE comes up with and scream about how they completely destroyed the original concept. It's happened before. Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
