  1. Because it was a choice that was then available. I was still going to choose Smeeta 100% of the time, but there was a choice to be made. Now there's not.
  2. Pubs are free for all's. You're free to be slow, they're free to yell at you for it, and you're free to ignore them and/or yell back.
  3. Even that's a stretch. Just because the game doesn't expressly spoon-feed players the information doesn't mean it was "unintended" that those paying attention to the game's mechanics understand how they work and play accordingly.
  4. The drone is still spawning at one of its DE-determined spawn points, so it's hard to see how this is a problem.
  5. No, I said I don't even have to pick. That was a dumb change and I'm not going to stop making fun of it any chance I get.
  6. You could have just said that, to yourself, and skipped this whole post. Smeeta wins because a chance at more loot is better than...literally anything else on tap. I don't need energy, ammo, pocket desecrate, more reliable crit buffs, plant scanning, or any of the other various options. Since they nerfed Deconstructor synergy, I don't even have to pick between better loot and better melee. I can do all that some other way, and do it better. What I can't do any other way is double, quadruple, or once in a blue moon even more almost any drop I'm playing the game to collect. It's too late for them to remove or nerf Charm - a lot of us already are right at the line of f@#$ my time investment, this game and this company suck - but there's literally nothing else they can add that can compete with it. It's the one thing we have no other way to accomplish.
  7. Any melee frame + crit/status CO viral polearm + status spreader of your choice. If you want to farm SE easily, grineer survival is the way to go (Corpus has nullies and infested has too many eximus effects).
  8. You can see the hound's head, body, legs, and tail in the codex. I agree it doesn't make much sense that they're not explicitly named in there, too, but DE's terrible UI philosophy is what it is.
  9. Doing lich spawn runs anything but solo seems pretty braindead, but whatever floats your boat. This whole thread of delicious salt does make me want to go dust off my nuke Saryn tho, so thanks for that.
  10. No, it was a good direction a month ago. Now it's just too little too late.
  11. This is incorrect. The reason AoE primary weapons are so effective right now is because they're finally benefiting from that same positive feedback loop as melee. Slot in your kill-conditional arcane and mods, kill stuff to spool up, then use/maintain it by Zarring everything in sight. The Kuva Zarr would still be good without the merciless arcane and galv mods, of course, but it wouldn't have the amazing burst damage you're whining about.
  12. All you're proving is that we used to be able to farm eximus for SE super easy. For once, DE decided to screw the late adopters rather than the early adopters.
  13. I have a foundry full of useless hounds that says otherwise.
  14. So you admit they specifically went there to leech, without any intention of stabbing their own lich. There's a number of words for such people, any of which would trigger moderator action...I leave it up to your imagination, but we all know what those sorts of players are.
  15. DE does know this, and they do it because it furthers their interests. Unfortunately for us, those interests only occasionally overlap with ours as players.
  16. Perhaps, but if I have to pick between a slightly better farm for the Tenet melee subset, or a significantly worse farm for any specific Tenet weapon at all...I'm picking the former. Sisters are already a far more annoying spawn-check-treasurer-complete cycle than Kuva larvalings. Relatedly, I actually like that I can bank holokeys and preview percentages at Glast - unlike the Sisters/Liches, I only commit to the Glast item when I want the proffered element/%. Would I want all Tenet/Kuva weapons locked behind that vs. the current grind 60% fast if you want to no-life it approach? No. But variety is nice.
  17. Hell no. It's already a complete nightmare trying to get what you're looking for.
  18. This. I'm happy to host randoms who want research or whatever, but my clan exists because I needed the stuff, am mildly completionist, prefer to run things, and won't deal with other people's clan politics/angst. Since SP's full-spawns-while-solo became a thing, literally the only time it's worthwhile to deal with WF's terrible host migrations and other social crap is ESO and relic cracking.
  19. You really do understand the point of the nerf.
  20. This seems to be related to AI aggro/pathing. If you and the others aren't in the same camping spot, spawns will be split amongst your locations and pathed accordingly. Unlike relic farms, I can't think of a reason to do a serious SP farm anything other than solo.
  21. There should be an option for extra spawns that says "WARNING: If you game on a potato, click this at your own risk!"
