  1. For me, I just fired up Tower of Time thanks to a skillup review (Thanks Warbro!) and whoa. I am completely blown away. It's Baulders Gate but with a much more interesting combat arc. Also started on Outer Worlds after snagging a pirated copy and I'm definitely going to buy it when it actually releases (on steam). Tower of Time SkillUp review here: Gonna be through them in a couple of weeks, so wanted to see what you guys are playing to start up a new winter queue!
  2. Been at this for days, and honestly, although I have a bit of a rep for being a DE white knight, this sh1t is unreal. I have maxed everything I can max, (except intrinsics) have dirac coming out of my ears, got my first yes my FIRST vidar drop reactor one mission ago, and it was like the will to play was just drained out of me. Time to go play my pirated version of The Outer Worlds since they refused to release the game and gated it behind epic. Honestly DE, if I want WoW drop loot tables and chances, I'll go #*!%ing play WoW.
  3. Alrighty! Been keeping a notepad of my railjack drops for the last two days. Slowed me down a good bit, but hell, I was home sick with the flu, so I thought why not! Results: drop tables are definitely, completely and utterly borked. I didn't think of writing down the nodes the missions happened on, but here's a quick summary of numbers: 1/1/20 11V 9L 80Z 1/2/20 7V 11L 37Z 1/3/30 5V 12L 55Z Above and beyond the random chance of the stats, ignoring what the items even ARE, just noting the houses and the items something is seriously, seriously out of whack. In fact, earlier yesterday I was googling to see where other parts even dropped as 5 consecutive missions showed nothing but zekti's. I thought maybe they were node locked, but nope. It's just heavily, heavily stilted towards zekti drops, period, on all fronts, in all missions, in all zones. Not even sure what to make of it, except that Zekti's are definitely and utterly dropping at a far higher ratio than anything else. Good? Bad? Who knows, but it doesn't seem like anything approaching a natural curve. And before someone points out that the sample size isn't large enough, yes I'm aware that over a long enough period of time a quarter flipped once every second until the heat death of the universe will turn up heads for 75,000 flips in a row and still not be an anomaly. Unfortunately, I can only observe the universe from my little window with the notepad available to me, and from my perspective this doesn't seem like a balanced drop curve. Just throwing this out there, in case anyone, like myself is starting to think their game is broken by mountains of zekti's and nothing else.... you're not alone.
  4. I just wanted to note that your picture shows some kind of language bug. j/k
  5. I kind of want to pull out the scene from Billy Madison and insert it here. You know the one. By this logic, you buy a single player game. Therefore it is pay to win. This is so fundamentally stupid an idea that I sincerely hope you get help. There are professionals out there that I'm sure can assist. I wish I had some resources to provide you, and may god have mercy on your soul, this forum is officially dumber as a result of the aforementioned posts.
  6. Can confirm what liquid said. Mission one: get rewards. Return to drydock. Two missions back to back: Then return to drydock. No rewards. Three missions back to back: no rewards. The captain is definitely getting them, the crew is not. I tracked my account totals and had a willing tester to confirm this. I have literally wasted my entire weekend and just figured it out this morning. FFS. For now, run your railjack, one mission at a time and return. It's the only way that definitely gets rewards as per my testing all day today. Bugs are one thing, but stealing my entire weekend? Damned DE. Damned. The real insult to injury here is that I bought all drop chance boosters for this weekend, finally going to give this railjack thing a shot and despite spending HOURS last night farming, doing near entire clears with a willing team, netting upwards of 12k titanium from a single run, I have 233 in my #*!%ing inventory.
  7. Yeah, but you shouldn't need to have a twotter forum account, wiki on screen, discord chat, twitch developer streams and clan chat open to figure out how to do literally anything.
  8. lol The OP litterally summed up my experience with railjack over the last two weeks. No explanations, no guide, just forum post searching and tons of "wtf is going on?". Weeks into this, I still have no idea what is going on. People are now talking about shadu and some kind of new sentient weapon and crates and drop chances being low and it's all greek to me. This was rolled out in the worst way possible. Hell, I can't even figure out why when I start a mission from my railjack I get like one or two people that drop in, then log out immediately. Connection is good, PC is a beast, no problems on any other mode or area, but can't get anyone to stick long enough to even ask what the hell is going on. So far, the only thing I've found from forum searching is to put out fires etc with that omni tool, you're "supposed" to be able to use the foundry at the back of the ship to make more "stuff" to recharge the omni, but they're either perpetually being used by other players or I don't have enough of "stuff" required to make the "stuff" so that seems to be moot. Anywho, his experience parallels my own and that's not a good look. I'm a "regular" player according to a list put together elsewhere in these forums, being a daily logger, few thousand spent on the game and if I can't figure out what the hell is going on, god only knows what the console casuals are thinking right now.
  9. https://www.statista.com/statistics/980474/warframe-number-players-steam/ Your statements are objectively untrue. Next topic please.
  10. I agree with the OP that I always loved that about warframe. Your talent and hard work were directly proportional to how big the numbers you could throw up on screen were. This RNG system is not for me. That being said, I don't mind that they added it to a compartmentalized portion of the game. It's content that's not for me, and that's ok. I've only done one run of each of the earth missions, by and large have no clue what's going on, I just run around putting out fires and taking out the command ships of whatever they're called and the pugs I'm with seem to get through the missions. Anytime I'm not doing that, we seem to fail, so not sure if that's on me or them, but I'm not interested in engaging with the system too heavily in order to find out either, thanks to the RNG. The OP is entirely accurate in his assessment, in my opinion and my hat is off to him. That being said, it's content that's not FOR ME, and that's ok. I have the rest of the game and I'm glad many people are getting to enjoy this new addition. Every expansion doesn't have to be about ME, as long as our community is growing and moving forward together. Also, can we please just shoot the pay to win screamers in their digital heads? Cordon them off to their own version of the game world where they can echo their rants off of each other and then slowly fade away? They won't know any difference, just instance them together. Add a "p2w" tag to their usernames and they only get partied up with other p2w criers. They'll feel good with all the validation they get from standing around complaining and the rest of us can proceed, getting the community back on track like it used to be. ;-0
  11. Brutallius Named after my first Warlord Titan (Warhammer 40K) that I built out of paper and with a stick framework. Brutallius and Badicus are both shown here. I thought it a proper homage to my papercraft hobby. ;-D It's worth looking at, if you've never imagined how big a Warlord Titan would be to scale in the 40K universe. Especially ones made of paper. lol https://photos.app.goo.gl/r3NtS26eZ2LN9ozJ9 https://photos.app.goo.gl/VNFVPQ7YQUcsnAJ6A
  12. I think I'm pretty well established as not exactly a DE fanboi, but this update is something I personally have been longing for since I found out warframe was a thing. It's buggy AF, no doubt, and I haven't even been able to complete one mission yet, but as a concept, as a feature, this is the future of warframe as I hoped it would go. The customization, skinning, required teamwork, resource utilization and fun factor are all here. I'm not excusing the poor launch, but if you peer beyond the gimped up hood, there is some serious horsepower waiting to be unleashed. Here's to hoping they don't get adhd and drop it like a hot potato for the next hottest thing.
  13. If you're playing on anything newer than a TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator, what does it matter?
  14. Can confirm that since I moved to the standalone launcher, steam achievements do not unlock properly. I'm actively looking at my rail jack in the steam client right now and I don't have the achievement. Lulz I only log into the steam version for tennogen here and there now.
  15. Fulmin all the way. If you can't one shot it with shotgun mode, then that's your sign that it's time to leave. ;-D
  16. I've thought about this quite a bit over the years, and I think I have it narrowed down for me. 1. The gameplay loop. Combat is fast, fun, varied and despite what you might thing from the e-peeners on this forum, there's no true meta. Kill things the way you want to kill them, as many times as you want, or as few as you want. Your game, your call. 2. Despite what people keep saying about destiny 2, I go back and install the game maybe once every 6 months, the combat loop completely sucks. I honestly think the people saying destiny's combat is fun are using controllers. There's just no way anyone with a mouse, keyboard and a fully functional set of hands/eyes can enjoy that. As much as people malign the underwater archwing parts of Warframe, the entire game of destiny feels like it's an underwater archwing mission. Minus the verticality. That's not a dig, but destiny 2 is supposed to be Warframes main competitor and it just.... isn't. The reason this is a point, is that Warframe basically stands alone in that context. 3. Games suck nowadays. I know that sounds like an old man "get off my lawn" kind of answer, but for the love of God, this chinafication of gaming is just.... sad. To anyone that doesn't know what that is, lets say you make an amazing game here in the U.S. and 1 out of 10 people buy a copy. That's 30 million copies sold! If you make a mediocre game that meets chinese governmental standards, i.e. nothing racy, not too violent, etc. and you only sell it to 1 in 30 people.... well, you still made a funk ton more money than the amazing game only released in the U.S. It's sad, and it's the reason everything is starting to feel the "same" in gaming and movies right now. From a corporate standpoint, it's far safer to make a homogenized "samey" game for that chinese market than it is to spend the same resources shooting for the stars in the American market. Sucks, but it's true. 4. FPS with a legitimate sense of accomplishment. What I mean by that is that if you believe in DE, you believe that Warframe has a future. Your accomplishments won't just be wiped with Warframe 2.0 every year, like a CoD style "progression". I feel like my time is respected, because they're keeping the universe I am investing my time and money into alive and not just dumping a sequel to. I just like running around and shooting things. I like running around and shooting things even MORE when I know it has a net cumulative effect and results in my having something to show for it that won't just be eradicated when it's time to increase quarterly earnings for the shareholders. It's all just a hampster wheel, but the annualized releases of some games just make the wheel feel small and pointless. DE keeps this flagship product rolling and the wheel gets bigger and bigger. 5. Warframe doesn't DEMAND my time. I'm not forced to log in everyday for "bonuses" etc. They offer some bonuses (2 gallium today! holy smokes!) but nothing that is required, or detrimental. Because they trust us enough to go play other titles and to come back, I similarly trust them to be a good steward of my time and money. Put another way, if you're in a relationship with a person and you don't want to let them out of their sight or worry yourself sick that they might cheat on you at a party you're not at, then bro. You're not in the right relationship. Warframe is a relationship as much as it is a game, and despite some DE's screw ups, such as the cronyism and uber leftist elitism that was on display with the guides of the lotus program (No, we haven't forgotten DE) they are confident enough to let us take some trips away to other games, and to not be sitting up late at night worrying themselves sick that we might just NEVER COME BACK from our couple of week tryst we had with Overwatch.
  17. Dude, that's a crazy good idea! DE plz implement!
  18. I don't think I'm using archwing right. How do you barrel roll now? I used to fly around the place upside down and rotating, because it gives you hella vertigo and was fun, but I can't figure out how to do it now. Anyone got a tutorial vid or some tips for me since the update? That being said, it was never fair that Itzal was the only archwing that was worth using when the odonata and elytron both had such good utility, but lacked the blink.
  19. I was just commenting to another player yesterday that I hope the CY voice actor got a bonus. He knocked it out of the park! Can't please everyone I reckon, but for my part, his personality has been missing from the game. They should add in the ability to disable voices and loud noises though for their more.... delicate players. Also, an "I win" button that people who don't want to play the game can press to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, because yeah. That's where we are as a species now....
  20. I'm starting to think this is almost a left vs right debate, within the context of our game. I don't like to trot that stuff into my virtual escape from it, but I'm a libertarian. I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that you're a democrat @Vyra. It seems to be a fundamental world view difference that I think that setting goals in front of people and expecting them is a good thing, and others believe that their needs/wants should be provided for themselves, not BY themselves. What would you propose as a middle ground?
  21. Then you'll get there. Not sure I understand your argument. Are you mad when you boot up any other game and the "the end" credits screen doesn't roll because you ain't got time for that playing the game nonsense? On another note, assuming you're too busy working to have more than 30 min to play the game, you should have money to buy the end credits "I win" screen, que no? I'm not following that a person can have no time, AND no money. Those things seem rather mutually exclusive.
  22. I think the *content has to be for everybody* design philosophy bit em in the arse on this one. People that aren't stronk enough to fight their litch shouldn't have access to them. Equality of opportunity should be a thing. In time, you'll become strong enough to participate in the system. Equality of outcome mentality is what caused this drama.
  23. Maybe I'm the oddball here, but I play public 95% of the time. I accept that if I'm not in the mood to do other people's "thing" whatever that thing is, then I shouldn't be in a public match. I'm really shocked at how other people view public matches. If you don't want to do what other people want to do, then why on earth would anyone queue for public matches? If you don't want to do what other people want to do, then for the love of Space Mom, don't queue for public matches! Seriously, what is the point of queuing for public matches if not to do group, public things? Why on earth would someone that doesn't want to work on their litch inflict that on other players?
