Ludonarrative Dissonance - Taxmen in Fortuna

So I get that the Solaris are all living under the yoke of the Corpus - they get too deep in debt they can't pay, and suddenly they can't afford to buy food, repair their gear, or get any training. But how are we suppose to believe the Corpus has any way of collecting on their debt or enforcing their draconian regulations when Fortuna is full of Tenno? The supposed "sting" of Corpus rule is kinda hard to take seriously considering the settlement is full of deadly and powerful space ninjas 24/7.

As Drasiel said, this is where you start separating the game world with the lore of warframe or else everything will have collisions. Gameplay elements aren't to be considered for example having 4/1 liset extraction when logically speaking, it's impossible for 4 lisets to be so close together with DE explaining that it's just a gameplay element for multiplayer and nothing else.

Sort of the same argument as according to the lore, there was only one ship with likely just a few thousand passengers on board, including those who would become the Tenno Operators.

But there's millions of them. And obviously from a story perspective, there are only a select few Tenno that are actually helping Solaris United, not the hundreds of thousands currently doing so.

Don’t you see those big mechanical crabs walking around, and on buildings? Thats their motherlode.

And once they're unleashed, the Tenno scum will be crushed...

 

 

...or at least, that's Nef's plan...

 

But as we saw with poor Thursby...even with a permanent Tenno presence, we can't be everywhere, all the time. The Corpus still have the numbers to keep the majority of Solaris on a short leash.

The quest was sorta designed under the assumption that you're the first Tenno to get to Fortuna, and that the lobby is empty until after you unlock the bounties. Obviously that didn't work

Like that story mission where Nef Anyo tries to kill 50 Fortunians, only to have his army slaughtered by the player, that's the mission that supposed to mark the difference between "Nef is oppressing Fortuna" and "Nef can't get into Fortuna, there's Tenno there". If the devs had made Fortuna a solo lobby until after that mission, we wouldn't be having this conversation methinks
