[HELP] Gameplay Sabotage by a random Chinese player, completely fkked up my Warframe career, I'm considering to just not play coz I can't recover

I've returned after a 2-year break; there is SO MUCH NEW CONTENT. It was glorious. Second Dream. Sacrifice. Umbra. Still a handful of quests.

It's a wonder why I didn't return in so long, and I was chipping my nails away at all the vaulted frames. I cry every tiem.

 

Then I started to do this quest.... The Glast Gambit. It's pretty fun. It was my first time on the Index. This has got to be one of the finest additions to the game.

If you do not remember, this is a QUEST of Index that introduces you to the index, and requires you to make a hefty wager to do the quest.

As expected, I was rocking the quest, and got into around half of the quest. This game truly WAS awesome.

 

But my fingers are shaking as I'm typing up right now.

 

It came to the point I needed to deposit 160,000 credits to enter a wager, to save the Myconean children. So I did.

What I did NOT expect, was that starting at this wager, other players could join.

What harm could ever come. from. that. Right?

 

I hereby accuse this Chinese freaking jesus of a player, "<NAME REMOVED>", to have sabotaged my Quest mission The Glast Gambit, cost me 160,000 credits, and put me in a spot where I can no longer continue my journey in the Warframe saga. I demand DE a fully detailed reprimand of this misbehaving player, and restore my unjust losses by the sabotage of a malicious player. I can't take this any more. I want to have more fun exploring in this infinite universe. But now I'm freakin arrowed to the knee by a random player.

I am Asian, so this is not racism. I speak Chinese as a native as well.

Oh, 160,000 credits is pocket change you say?

My current balance is at 14,364. credits. FIVE digits. When's the last time you saw those numbers?

 

Here's what happened. He joined my game. I was expecting nothing at all. I mean, why would I?

The mission required we keep a Index Coin Point margin of 10 between our team and Nef Anyo's brokers.

In other words our score differences had to always remain under 10.

I was completely in control of the beginning of the game. I was luring the enemies here and there, stalling time to win in just the right margins.

It was going well. Until I noticed "<NAME REMOVED>" started to hack away at the enemies everywhere, and with "a fkking load of index points" he immediately deposited several points.

I noticed how perhaps he, being Chinese and unable to read English, (his entire name "<NAME REMOVED>" is in Chinese, that's how I know) I talked to him. I explained to him in Chinese that he needed to stop depositing points, because we had to keep our points margin under 10 to complete the mission.

And of course, he just went straight ahead and killed every enemy, never responding to my chat messages, and deposited points straight in. 

As if mocking me, he deposited JUST ENOUGH POINTS to have a margin of 11 points.

Timer was closing in.

and I lost. The mission failed. Anyo pulled back from the gamble.

We lost 17 : 6. Margin of 11. Margin of god 11 please ...

At this point I didn't even know what was about to happen.

I came back to my Orbiter, and found my credits balance at 14,364. Credits. 14364 credits.

14,364 credits.

 

I grinded, went through countless missions, selling countless [Harrow Chassis Blueprint], foddering my mastered weapons, for that 160,000 credits.

Now it was gone. Just evaporated. Gone.

 

I just don't have the energy to amass myself another 160,000 credits at all, you know? I mean, do I really have to put in another 4 hours of my life, just to make up for ONE ACT OF TOXIC SABOTAGE by a random stranger, who happened to ruin your career and shatter your dreams?

I don't know the answers to that.

Will I ever come back to warframe?

I don't know the answers to that either.

 

I was looking forward to Fortuna.

Well

it was good while it lasted

 

Farewell, my Loki starter frame.

 

Please, for everyone reading this, do all your quests solo. I learned the hard way.

I hope someone from DE reply, and look into this incident. I've already reported him for harrassment, though I find gameplay sabotage hardly any similar.

 

I tried talking to this "<NAME REMOVED>". When I talked to him I found out he insta "ignore"d me after (or maybe even during) the game. I couldn't even talk some sense into him, or ask him to repay me for my losses (in any form or effort, really).

That's the end of my tragic story.

That's the end of my Warframe.

Pathetic.

Will justice be served, and the victims be saved?

While your situation is quite unfortunate don't expect much sympathy from other forum-users.  160K credits is easy to get back.

Trolls be trolls no matter what. All we as players can do is go solo.

Also, I don't think calling out other players on the forums is acceptable. Could be wrong about that though.

Not sure if this is a joke or not. We all got screwed over on the glast gambit. That was the point. To show that Nef Anyo is a cheat. Also, this severely violates forum etiquette by naming and shaming a player. If you’ve just returned after two years of absence and are complaining of one bad match and a loss of credits, you really need to rethink your “Warframe Career”. Just do a few dark sectors, get some credits, get a few friends, do the quest, and quit your b*tching.

There is an part of the mission that you can't win and loose the credits you have put in

 

The last mission will give you all the credits back 100%

 

i thought the same .. losing all my credits made me upset .. but then Oo the last mission gave everything back 

 

so if this helps you a bit to calm down .. 

i can assure you that if you do team play you end up with more credits 

everyone can help you .. just ask :)

Good luck tenno

You still don't understand.

I'm not even at that point of getting screwed over.

That is probably at like a wager of 200,000 creds or sth, I don't know,

but I'm crippled before even getting close to that stage of the quest.

You think I've got all day and hours and hours to invest?

I've done a lot of what I best could.

Isn't it a little too "veteran-minded" to tell newer players to just go suck it up and get "a few creds back"?

I still haven't spent my starters' 50 plat.

This is not "some credits", it's friggin 160,000 credits. I don't care how many millions or billion credits you have, but I have no boosters nor the time or energy to get back to square one.

 

Naming and shaming is due where there is shame.

He sabotaged my quest.

I didn't even know going solo in quests was the "norm".

Duuuuuude. Chill. Dark sectors give like, 20-30k credits per run. Even more if you go Chroma with a secure lecta. Like, seriously. Explore your options before you go complaining. Just do some survivals on normal missions or dark sectors. It’s really not that hard. sure, you’ll be there for a bit, but it’s insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Especially when there are ways to cheese the hell out of index. Take atlas for example. One of his augments lets him make three walls. That’s enough to wall off the goal areas in the index. Sure, enemies will try and break it, but they won’t get far.

And no, shaming is never acceptable. It singles out people and gives them a bad name. How would you feel if I called you out on your bullsh*t and everyone came and laughed at and berated you? Huh? Not so nice now, is it?

Here's my advice, go to recruitment chat and ask someone to take you on a high index round, it costs 50k to enter and one win there will get you 250k which is more than enough to restart your quest. Also be sure to switch to 'solo' or 'invite only' before starting important missions like spy if you don't want randoms to 'troll' you. But ranting over some easily farmable credits isn't going to get you anything.

See? This guy gets it! Recruitment chat exists for a reason! I’m sorry to say, but you’re losing this argument. Badly.

Calm down.
160K credits is a small amount with how many you can get in a single mission.
Without boosters, and with only spending 5-20 minutes (whether you want a full rotation of rewards or not) you can get 20K from a single dark sector survival against easy infested enemies.
At that rate its only 8 missions, or 40 to 160 minutes, and you're good to go again.

Hek you don't even need to go that far.  Run it 2-3 times to get to 50K credits then do a single high risk index round and you'll get 250K back with very little trouble, so you don't even need to spend anywhere close to an hour to get those 160K credits back.

You're blowing this way out of proportion.

Especially if you look into the rules of the forum where its explicitly forbidden.

After all what's to stop me from starting a thread where I named and shamed you and got a lot of people listening.  Now you're being avoided and mocked in game for nothing with absolutely no way to defend yourself.

It causes witch hunts and a lot of issues which is why DE forbids it.

Oh sh*t. When the grand masters get involved, you’ve done goofed badly.

@Countermander its possible to get back 160k credits in like 20-30 mins (at most) even with like mr2-3 account which ive done many times - without any boosters and stuff... I understand you are upset that someone screwed your match... but in the whole time you wasted to create this post you couldve easily get more credits than you lost... Doing 1-2 quick dark sectors and then doing 1 round of index (with proper team and not randoms - to ensure your win) woulve got the whole ammount to you in very short time. 160k credits is basically nothing. And again i am not saying that because i have millions. but because i have farmed a lot of credits even with new low mr accounts

Thanks for everyone for their advices.

I'm now aware that 160,000 credits is not that too big of a loss. I probably can make up for that loss.

But if a game kinda prohibits you from engaging a quest with other friends, and, if a game demands that I pay double for the damages done unto me by other players, well, I'd steer clear of those games.

Thanks.

Just curious, but I believe OP can still participate in the normal Index to regain the lost Credits, where even the High Risk entry is 50k. That's far lower than the Glast Gambit.

The thing is, that guy who screwed it up for you lost aswell. So joke is really on him if he did it intentionally. You didnt play a public index, you played a quest related index so everyone involved follows the exact same rules i.e overcap of the margin = loss for everyone.

So very likely he didnt screw you over, he just happened to be oblivious to the quest requirements.

Just run a few 5 wave dark sectors, dont stay longer because it is pointless.

If you feel a user has violated the rules, report it and explain the rule(s) you believe they have violated. 

Naming and shaming is not something we allow on the forums, regardless of whether you feel it's justified or not, as it violates the code of conduct.
