Dev Workshop: Riven Disposition Changes

Recommended Posts

Just now, Peter said:

A lot of non sense changes, Rubico took nerf in same way than Lanka, but Lanka is 90% more used.

And they nerfed Astilla while keep Kohm? rly?

This is more for market manipulation, they want to promote the new sniper in a dirty way.

 

Completely disgunsting.

Well, Kohm is a sensitive change. 
Rivens were madeto make unused weapon more used. To change Kohm's one will completely delete that point.
But still, why should marelok be weaker than pandero? No reason at all. So many things wrong it's not even worth mentioning

It's about balancing things, not just about what is most used but also what is most powerful BEFORE a riven is applied.  As for sentinel rivens it's about time, they were utterly useless. Base stats were so low that rivens didnt make much difference anyways  and remember that dispositions only affect the ranges you can roll and the impact of these changes isn't that massive. People saying lanka is more used, but forget that Rubico prime is far more powerful than std Rubico so op riven would mess with balance hence the bigger change.

Honestly taking out sentinal rivens was a really bad move. You easily could've put them in a category of their own so it wouldn't be as much of a letdown when you got a melee riven only to find out it's deconstructor. Thanks to this sentinal rivens are going to explode in value for not much of a reason except for "Welp no more you had your fun."

As someone with a tiberon riven what the flying hell DE thank you. 

Rivens have been broken and the trading market for them has been utter chaos. The longer you were gonna wait the worse some people would react. I hope next disposition visit won't take as long.

How can you complain about Kohm when this weapon becomes beast only with 120% riven. 

Instead buffing dispo just raise the basic stats.
Check play ratio of weapons like miter and tell me that it should be nerfed. 

Not cool DE

ya but alot of people still dont like kohm cuz of large spread and ammo issues. astilla fires slugs so dosnt ahve taht "less that 100% is useless" issue.
marelok is slowly getting upthere. but remember it WAS one of the best pistols that everyone used before akstilettoP

Nerfing or buffing rivens based on usage is purposeless. It should be based on the actual effectiveness of each weapon. Additionally Primes should have different dispositions than their normal/variant counterparts.

I dislike the fact that disposition can go below 1x. Make it that using a good riven is always worth it - cahnge disposition range from 0.5-1.5 to 1-2 so that weapons like Skana can at all be used in high end gameplay.

Why are you guys so cavalier about deleting millions of plat in Riven value, while totally buying into the Primed Chamber meme to the point of suggesting Primed Charged Chamber rather than ever bringing it back?

A dynamic system would be even better, with disposition changing based on monthly community usage, encouraging players to use weapons that nobody uses as well as switching them regularly.

Good thing we don't have riven mod limits so I can just switch to whichever weapon I want. Oh wait...

If sentinel weapon riven mods are not that valuable why not introduce a special sentinel weapon riven that can be bought via vitus essence or fortuna for people who actually want to maximize their sentinel firepower?

This will also lead to a absurd price inflation on sentinel weapon rivens for people that have them. ( once that detcube prime hits boy oh boy will deth machine rifle riven be valuable ) I wanted a deconstructor riven forever but it never dropped for me. Now I can't get it without paying absurd price for it. Feels bad.

That Supra nerf hits me hard, it's my favorite primary but it's understandable, ever since it was buff it's a powerhouse and it made no sense. 

To the people claiming for a Khom nerf I'd say that a Khom without a status riven is basically not worth using over many other weapons so it probably should stay as is.

Riven disposition shouldn't be based on popularity of a weapon, it should be based on the power of the weapon in the grand scheme of things.

I'd hope so or the prices will skyrocket. Interested to see the answer to this.

DE isn't responsible for the prices that players set and pay for their Rivens, though.
