Fortuna: The Profit-Taker - Update 24.2

Recommended Posts

Hands down, the *worst* thing I've ever had to do in Warframe is the Orb fights, which ironically if the letter are rearranged spell ROB, because that's all they're there to do- rob you of your time.

 

The fodder enemies are difficult enough alone, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever that they should even be there. The arch guns (especially because you have to pray you chose the right one for the job because otherwise you are literally screwed unless other clansmen can get the thing built because for some reason you hate money. Can't just buy a Gravimag for 20p from market, nope. Just like Loadout slots and riven slots and everything else that have a limit that's overwhelmingly under what it should be).

 

90% of all warframe abilities do nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing to the fodder. They're just impervious to anything warframe related I guess. It's been this way since OV released and never got any attention. Can't cast Gara's 2 on most things that need protection, can't encase 75% of the enemies in glass for 45 seconds to catch a tiny break from the ridiculous havok they ensure, Revenant can't thrall half of them and if he can they still attack him, EV let's you cast at enemies but doesn't lock them in an animation stopping them from attacking you....

 

For some reason, in almost 2019, our companions aren't invincible. Why is that? They cant kill anything fast or consistently enough to warrant having a health pool. Even with rivens (because yes I have one for sweeper) it can handle level 30's but its not like I can AFK, and it's not like it kills fast enough to be worth it... so why why why why do they even have a health pool at all? Do you guys even try this stuff? Even with a bless/adaptation trinity I couldn't last 5 minutes but can solo Arbitrations, Sorties, and 3-hour survivals with ease. But carrier (and of course the vacuum that you refuse to just build into every frame, in every state, and insist on making limited broken mods for specific circumstances because the game is FTP and you'll do anything on earth except let people farm faster) and your means to have ammo, have health regen, have the uberly redundant "allow me to use my archgun even though my Sicarus prime is stronger"  are all gone. Like there isn't enough other stuff to focus on during this "fight". And by fight I mean time-sink.  

 

The knockdowns (to warrant wasting a mod slot on our arch-gun?) are out of control and ridiculous even if you're using something that should protect against them. Because the stupid and ridiculously over-the-top "shield push". Add to this that the particular arch-gun I chose is the fluctus as it's 3.0 second reload you will NEVER be able to complete this fight. Or I mean, I won't. 3.0 second reloads is just... do you even play your game? I mean really play it? In what circumstance can you stand still for 3 seconds and that doesn't even include the 5.0 seconds it takes to equip the things. Listen to me very carefully... there is nothing fun about frustration. It does not add any element of suspense or enjoyment. 

 

Arcane Nullifier (two sets) are not protecting against magnetic procs.... why?

 

The orb mother chooses when you damage it, not you, so even if on the miraculous occurence you're able to damage it, you'll just see 0's until your 40 ammo arch-gun is empty then you can have fun trying to be able to use it again.

 

There's just so much, and I don't understand why. Why would anyone there think that this is fun. Do you only listen to trolls that want the opposite of what everyone else wants? Then there's the rewards and everything else. I just hate everything about this fight. 

 

The entire pack of 500p+ corpus weapons I bought once I figured out it'll be 2020 (when melee 3.0 comes out) that I'll be able to build them all suck. Horribly. And to put the icing on the cake, the one polarity that came on the shotgun is a D. When things like that happen, it makes me not want to spend the $150 I have to pay for Prime Access the next time around. Stop putting weapons out that need 4+ forma to be usable. And unfortunately back to the topic at hand, the shotgun is the only one remotely worth using and even then you found a way to make Tigris style shooting look good, because this shotgun has 1 shot in the clip and takes 1.1 seconds to reload with Chilling Reload installed.... what the actual F were you thinking? The pistol and whip are straight downgrades from weapons you can get in the game. Why spend development time on something that people won't want to invest in? I don't understand that. You make something, knowing damned well that nobody will want to put those 5 forma in to them. So aren't you losing money by people doing that? 

 

And for the love of God, even storytelling games with the sole purpose of telling stories let you skip the cutscene. Why don't you? 

 

To end on a positive note, Baruuk is amazing (so he'll probably be nerfed soon) and Mesa Prime is the best looking frame I've ever seen in my life. I don't want to sue armor or Tennogen on her. So you did something right.

I don't quite understand Mad Stack - does it make you fall faster or go forward faster while falling? I'm still set on involving the use of downhill movement to gain extra speed. And am I the only one who gets annoyed by having 100% air control even when pressing no movement directions? In fact, if I want to look behind me, using movement keys is actually necessary in order to not reverse my trajectory. That's one thing I feel like is separating this feature from most snowboarding or skateboarding games - most of those games you can't control your direction midair, you are locked into your jumps as you would be in real life, having to plan ahead of time. Granted, we are driving a rocket board so I can understand the redirection but there are times when I'd prefer it just didn't happen - more importantly if we lowered it to like say... 50% air control? Something more reasonable? I think the boards would be a lot more fun to drive because they would feel like they had a sense of physics to them. This in large part is the biggest problem with Archwing in my opinion is that you are instantly oriented to your camera direction and there is no feeling of inertia.

But in the meantime, why not have an option to switch whether we want turning to be mouse-controlled only when on the ground vs when in the air?

Staticor.. I.. 2 meters? Not even like.. idk, 5?
You say as intended but it seemed deliberate at the time, I was expecting a nerf since I though the weapon was taken a bit too much in a cool direction, but back to 2 just makes me ask a lot of questions.

Titania Changes:

  • Baseline Energy Capacity increased to hit 225 at Max Rank.

Tribute:

  • The Energy cost for Tribute has been decreased from 50 to 25.
  • Simply getting 1 type of Tribute will be enough to have its maximum power. You can continue to acquire Tributes to refresh the Duration, but you no longer need to build them up. 
  • As for the 4 Tribute types: 
    • Dust - keep as-is:it reduces enemy accuracy by 50%!
    • Thorns - increase to 50% of damage reflected back to the attacker!
    • Entangle - keep as-is: one Entangle Tribute slows an enemy by 25%!
    • Fullmoon - the 75% damage buff now applies to ALL (Sentinels, Moas, Companions)  + Razorwing Butterflies

Lantern: 

  • Lantern can be cast up to 4 times at once (new targets replace old). Targets will gradually float back to their starting positions. You will be able to 'explode' all targets by holding the Lantern cast. 

Razorwing:

  • Razorwing has a 'Vacuum' built in! 

Everyone in the first post sad, that this is not enoth. No new changes. Titania is still garbo. rip pixie

Im disappointed, and throroughly aggravated to see that Titiania's new vacuum is 12m or so, instead of 3m (hell, even 6m would be more manageble than 12m). It makes it hard to be anywhere near the ground without wasting energy orbs. At least in a place like Cetus or the Orb Vallis we can fly high up enough to avoid wasting them, cant really do that in most normal mission tilesets. I hope you guys will reduce the range, becuase 12m is way too much. Theres a reason I never use vacuum on sentinels, or that silly new Fetch mod on my pets, and its precisely because on frames with channeled abiliies its downright wasteful.

I am however, really enjoying her changes so far, as well as Nyx's. Here's to hoping Vauban gets some extra love, because what he got before was lackluster.

Hello,

First thing I wanted to say is of course thanks for the great updates and all the work. Never thought I'm gonna be playing a game that's not PvP that long 😉

I would like to talk about the dropships in Orb Vallis and Plains of Eidolon during bounties or even free roam. Can you please, pretty please add a ton of armor and HP to these ships? Or better yet make them almost invulnerable to standard hand weapons? Now that we can use archwing heavy guns maybe only these should damage them and surely not so easy as now.

I think plenty of players feel sorry for the poor bast**ds that are made to come in dropships. It's worse than kamikaze for them. And it kinda ruins the immersion too, when all you see during a bounty stage are explosions in the sky.

Thanks for your consideration.

A.

@[DE]Rebecca @[DE]Steve Please help to check out the bugs of the Orbiter. Whenever I visit the Orbiter of a friend or invite them over, the visiting person are unable to access the rooms, unless by doing a bullet jump above the door, which will cause a glitch allowing you to phase through the door, this even works for the Infested Room even if we do not use Nidus or a Warframe with a fully grown Cyst.

Furthermore, after entering the rooms, the Operator Room was found to be the one with the worst glitches. Firstly the operator chair will be missing, and we can see the operator just floating in midair. Secondly, when the person switches to operator mode, sometimes the operator will be found moving around but still in the sitting position as if they were still in the Operator Chair.

At first I thought this was an occasional, but after visiting a few orbiters of friends, this issue is seen on all, and occurs to them when they visit my orbiter. 

Please take note of this issue, as it has persisted since many updates ago, but no fixes have been implemented, so I wish to notify you of this matter.

Thank you.

Staticor Changes:

  • Quick fire area-of-effect returned to 2m as intended.
  • Charged fire projectile speed increased.
  • Mag size increased from 45 to 48.
  • Ammo capacity increased from 270 to 288.
  • Clip size no longer affects charge time and is now set at 1 sec.
  • Charged fire now deals self damage.
  • Reduced the shockwave distortion FX.

Whats up with self damage on weapons ?

Do we players look like people who wants to damage ourselves when we play a game ? Or is it because DE don't want us to use it ? What gives ?

Before this it was PHANTASMA, and barely anyone uses that because of self damage. 

Please don't fix stuff that don't need any fixing. Please revert Staticor as how it was b4 this change or at least put charged shot onto Middle Mouse Button or something so that i wont keep killing myself. 

I think i should just uninstall this game and find something else to play. Coz u just cant use something u like in this game because it just gets Nerfed to the ground and kills u.

Hello. 😊

Can you add an easy mode for the battle with the giant spider? Cause I didn't find it very rewarding. It's so confusing and very difficult to play. I can't understand what I am supposed to do with the Archguns. I've completed it two times with a team but I'm disappointed cause I actually have no idea of what was going on and couldn't enjoy the game in that messy carnage. The mighty spider is now dead but how? Bwoah. S#&$ happens. 😕

Hurrah the Tonkor is now usable after this long year and 9 months! Thank you for simultaneously fixing the clanky firing mechanic and solving the issue of stray grenades.

I still miss the boom-boom bouncy launcher we had, but this will do.

  • Critical Chance increased from 10% to 28%.
  • Critical damage increased from 2x to 2.4x.
  • Status Chance increased from 5% to 12%.

  • Changed Fire Rate from 16.67 base ramping up from 13.33 to 25 Fire Rate over 30 rounds to: 25 base rate ramping up from 13.33 over 30 rounds. Functionally exactly the same as before just the max Fire Rate is now shown in the Arsenal.

@[DE]Rebecca @[DE]Steve It is good to see Imperator Vandal has a great buff in atmosphere mod but why now the Critical Chance and Status Chance of Imperator Vandal in Archwing mod is identical to the normal version while before that it was 15% and 10%? The wiki still keep this data:
455AD453789FDA5C876A986F7E79C1D2C512138A

https://warframe.fandom.com/wiki/Imperator_Vandal
Is this a bug or it is intended? If it is intended I feel so upset because my favorite weapon in archwing mode now get nerfted...

So I have to grind to top Vox standing, before I can fight an orb, before I can finally use the heavy weapons I've been longing for for years? I decided to casually run the Index a couple times just a bit ago, simply because I coincidentally found a credit booster in a mission during the double credit weekend, and I'm already super done with that crap. Got one-shot by an invisible mine and ragdolled into the sunset, hunted down the enemy that grabbed my coins just before he deposited them but as usual wasn't allowed to pick them up for several seconds, and watched in confusion as instead of finally being able to pick up the pile of coins I've been standing on the cloud of them just gets up and flies into the goal, presumably grabbed out from under my feet by an invisible enemy, ending the last match I had time for in a loss. I don't think my sanity can stand that kind of bull credit grind, which is evidently now mandatory for story progression.

We’ve also increased the amount of vertical movement seen when manipulating the control stick to reduce the amount of asymmetry between it and horizontal movement. There is still a bias towards the horizontal plane, but moving the camera up/down should not feel so drastically different when now compared to left/right movement. 

 

This is going to be Controversial when it hits Consoles.

Changing everyone's control sensitivity simultaneously is bound to bother more than a few people.

'Im sure it went under the rader for the time being, since the update is PC-only for now.

Seriously just make Horizontal vs Vertical sensitivity into Separate Option sliders.

Hi, im on PC, I currently just checked to see if I could install the Firestorm Mod on my Synoid simulor, and there is none showing up as an option to equip it too. I then went into the Mod bench to find how many Firestorm Mod i have and I have a total of 6. Is the Mod only exclusive to the normal Simulor? I did check with Terminal velocity and it does show up. Only Firestorm does not show up.

O__________________o;

Index is hella easy buddy. Take a tank or self healer, a high damage shotgun, and I don't usually say this but you REALLY REALLY need to lower your graphic settings because your computer is clearly unable to run the index at the settings you've got; you just decribed some serious voodoo sht. My i7 and 32 gb gaming ram  don't even understand what you're talking about, but I remember a time in the distant past wherein I didn't yet have a mod-making computer, and your are describing broken-level lag that's probably more to do with your hardware than internet connection. The index points should pick up immediately and never move independently. I solo the index 100% of the time. I run Saryn with armor, vitality, regenerative molt and a vaykor hek plus a good fast melee, and it usually takes me 4 to five minutes for level 1 and 9 to 10 minutes for level two, making the lowest level the most economical. Screw the top level. Good luck buddy.

 

As far as everone else on here goes... It really isn't that hard to get to max rank in a faction, I like having some things you have to work for myself so I am perturbed by how many people are complaining about the Old Mate requirement for Vox... Ahh. Don't get me wrong, I am 30 with a house and hellish job, I don't have much time for games and have to squeeze fun in, but only short term things upset me like dweebs that run in and ruin spies in pub(so I have a spy build and do them on private)... I don't see a problem with some things taking time. That is part of earning things. That is how it sets off your dopamine as if you did something difficult... Not just by wanting it then poof, having it.
