Im all for people taking responsibility for their actions, or lack of. However, you are missing my point... which is that the demand for forma has increased, while the supply of forma has decreased.
Allow me to explain again. In the old system, 4 people ran 4 separate tower keys in an attempt to acquire a prime part, known as a keyshare. You could have potentially acquired 4 forma having only burned one personal key. The system now, requires you to burn a relic every time you need something... let alone 4 forma. This source has clearly become more expensive with less return. Plus you have 3 core game systems that are dependent on the relic system: Mastery, upgrades, void trader. All three require heavy investment and can make the choice of reward very hard.
The only relics that are exempt from the above are the new requiem relics which are redundant since the rare reward can be obtained from the syndicate system. One possible solution is to replace weapon exilus with forma on those relics.
Forma also used to be in alerts . I could set my phone, and get an alert when a forma popped up. All I had to do was log on and get it. Alerts have since been replaced with the nightwave system. Not only are alerts gone, but forma was removed from the nightwave rewards as well. This source is obviously gone, so at this point, its fair to say the supply has been reduced.
Add in the new kuva weapons, which are a huge forma investment, weapon exilus/umbral forma/aura forma all requiring 1/2 forma to build, it should be fair to say that the demand for forma has increased.
All OP is saying is that it needs to be looked at, and i think there is enough evidence to say that thats reasonable.
