Mesa Prime Access is Live!

I saw some meh operator cosmetics and then the final nail in the coffin for me is yet another "Prime" sugatra for some extra padding. I once bought a Prime sugatra and decided never again because I couldn't even tell if I had it equipped or not. I never see any players begging for deluxe or Tennogen sugatras and yet we keep getting them in PA again and again?

It just confirms what I think that the accessories are way too expensive given players can buy a lot of fancier Tennogen items for the same amount. I hope the packs ever get something a little more extra because it's what I wouldn't mind buying if I felt I was getting my money's worth in bling.

Mesa Prime looks dope though. Good job with her design.

Thanatos sugatra from Nekros Irkalla collection > all other sugatras.

It seema to be a pattern with prime access. An amazing beautiful, highly hyped for prime like mesa, valkyre, saryn, and a couple others didn't get amazing accessories cause DE sells it with the prime and weapons. Which this time look DAAAYMMM fine. Love the redeemer look.  

And then on primes that aren't that hyped, like hydroid, limbo, Vauban and a couple others, they try sell it with the accessories. Hydroid prime armour imo is insanely good on almost every frame. It's not too bulky but big enough too look good, not too ornate, but ornate enough to look good. And so on

On the contrary: It has not so much to do with the frames but with the time window:

-Nyx, Nekros, Hydroid, Chroma all came out as the 3rd pack in that year (September frame), all came with an armor set. Exceptions are Volt (February) and Mirage (right after Hydroid, but Atavist and Spritsail were part of the same design so they were done at the same time).

-Ash, Vauban, Oberon, Limbo all came out around the 2nd pack (June frame). They all used a Syandana (as of Vauban, very personal one at that), two a sugatra (with Limbo, a sigil, with Ash Sentinel stuff because he came with Carrier).

-Ember, Nova, Trinity, Valkyr, Mesa all came out in time for Christmas. They're more varied: Ember was the first and came with the amazing Misa Prime, Nova came with Pyra to complete the Targis set and a Sigil, Trinity had the Kubrow stuff and a sugatra (the coolest IMO alongside Volt's and Loki), and Valkyr and Mesa have Operator stuff.

You can see a trend in those, and in the case of Operator cosmetics it usually takes a couple years to see them come at all (Zephyr earlier this year). It was just a matter of time for Operator facial stuff, it just happened to be Mesa, it could have been Equinox and it would have been the same -- just the design would have probably been tweaked towards Equi, since all seem to be too thematic now.

So yeah, it's all about the timespace between them.

I was 100% ready to buy the Mesa Prime pack with everything included just because I liked the look of Mesa Prime. Then I saw the accessories and now I'm just not sure, the only one that looks decent (to me) is the earpiece, and I'm pretty sure the sugatra is going to be impossible to even see most of the time.

I don't know, maybe it's because I don't like many of the operator face accessories in the first place, especially when they just vanish when I put the hood up, or if I want to wear the blindfold/glasses.

Was really hyped to buy the full access pack this holiday season, but this is definitely a hard pass for me. I'll probably be farming for Mesa Prime parts instead.

I love DE and Warframe, but I think the ball was dropped pretty hard here. Hopefully there's a chance for some better stuff if there is enough backlash. Vote with your wallets.

The fact that the cloth piece on her legs is attached to the knee makes me cry, i will probably never use her prime looks.

Mesa looks good, and whenever I think you guys can't come up with worse accessories, you surpass yourselves.

I'm afraid that I'm skipping the accessories this time around.  Which is a shame as I'd love more operator gear in general but these are more like Primed Ducats.

Edit : I forgot Key Fob Prime ................... that's very much a nope too.

Operator acessories are so lame. I can't even understand why people even bother with them. It is sad to see such a gorgeous prime Warframe next to these acessories nobody will bother to look at.

I was already expecting Mesa to come with something like Primed Spurs, Primed Ammo Belts across the chest or even Primed Ankle Holsters with some awesome looking guns to accompany our favorite gunslinger. Nope, here are some operator crap nobody wanted.

I honestly think these accessories directly hurt what would otherwise be a guaranteed-buy prime access. It is a shame they hamstring such a gorgeous frame with these deal-breakers.

I bet someone at DE thought that it would sell since it was bundled with THE hottest prime that will ever come out.  I think they are going to be sorely mistaken... lets vote with our wallets... NO we dont want to spend the extra money for operator facial skins.

I was really ready to drop my money on the full access pack but the operator accessories that would be bundled in are really not up to standard in my opinion. 

Honestly the head piece doesn't really look nice and the center of the mouth piece is  transparent just isn't pleasing to look at

Akjagara: Has weird recoil patterns.

Akjagara Prime: "Precision machined mirrorred pistol."

I wonder how it'll be.

 

Also, personally really disappointed with the accessories pack.

The sugatra is amazing, but the operator cosmetics aren't worth it compared to the previous ones. Compared to Chroma, Limbo (yes, I think his controversial syandana is still way better than the operator), Mirage, and Zephyr, this one really pales in comparison.

I'd take any non-sugatra previous prime accessories item (except Oberon's because it only works on Oberon) over the operator accessories if I could.

Oh well, was hoping to shell some money on this pack. I guess I'll wait for 75% instead.

hands down the most creative prime frame design as of now in my opinion~

Makes them need to go back and revamp older Prime Frames like Rhino and Frost (as these don't look much different than the non-Prime versions).  Let's put some "gold" shoulder pads on Rhino and call it a thing.

I feel that DE just missed the opportunity of sales with this line up of prime access. They could have done better since people actually have more willingness to spend during the holiday season. I have been buying prime access but I'll pass on this one.

Can I have a Prime Hospital Bed too, something like the one Umbra was sleeping on. That will make a perfect hospital cosplay with that mask. lol
