Melee Revisit: Phase 1 Feedback Megathread

As I've mentioned before they should either gives us an option to use either with a legacy toggle or even better what DE infact SHOULD do is allow us a way to bind the controls ourselves in ways that could allow for one option, the other, or some hybrid somewhere in between to suit each player. Best done by making each function bindable individually and allowing multiple functions to be bound to a single key(as well as to NOT be) if we choose as well as toggles for various aspects such as having a different bind set for guns and melee.

Considering that rebinding channeling when they first launched Phase 1 on PS4 completely broke melee somehow, I doubt they’d try that again.

This yeah, definitely.

but to compare DE with EA (Like the other tenno did) just because you're salty, and to say "no one at all asked for this"? That's pretty far-fetched and disrespectful/rude.  @Galataya @DeltaPangaea  @SilviaS12 My point is that Insulting people isn't how you get them to listen to you, or get them to do something you'd like to see from them. I do agree that it would be awesome to have more overall control and effectiveness.  I imagine DE hasn't replied yet due to all the tennocon commotion (since it's an immediate priority) so i'll give them a benefit of doubt that we might hear more after things settle.  But EA has gambling-mechanics, doesn't outright sell the product they offer, doesn't listen to feedback, makes excuses for their negligence or lack of content (like no DLCs for andromeda, the new anthem game mode, etc) and makes falsely advertised sub-par content. Meanwhile DE has only continued to work on improving their game. Yeah they've done some shady things in the past with their loot rates, and they get to town on nerfing things (RIP Ember) but the game overall keeps getting better, and they definitely do listen to player feedback. Let's just be patient... It's tennocon weekend, and they've had to prepare for this for a while now. They'll also need to settle back into their previous work mode and such. You want them to do a good job? We're gonna have to be a little patient, and keep giving *constructive* feedback without the rude remarks. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------back to melee 3.0-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I do like the current quick melee, with the immediate switch between melee and primary for better gunplay. Though it might be best if we could also switch into some sort of "full melee mode" where we have full control of our blocks and better combo/attack combinations and maneuverability. I'd love to see quicker/shorter combo effects, for the desired type of attack we want to do.

I.E.:  allow us to chain the different attacks together into a finisher (like a cool decapitation) or knocking an enemy into another one and stabbing them both, then using a combo to jump into another enemy immediately after a finisher.

I didn't know stating the obvious was insulting people, my apologies. The new update for melee is unplayable for me and many others. Sorry not sorry.

I get that lately they've been occupied with Tennocon and Empyrean, but if they were gonna do something that big, why the heck did they leave us in this cruddy interim between 2.9 and 3.0? Just taking time out from the thing you're actively working on to distract yourself with something big and flashy for Tennocon, and to hell with the people still upset? Maybe 3.0 will fix it, maybe it'll bring back dedicated melee. Maybe it'll come with Empyrean. We don't know. We don't know ANYTHING.

I'm fine with WAITING for a fix. Hell, even a '#*!% off we're not changing it' would be slightly better than them literally not commenting on people's reactions in the slightest.

What's even doing on, DE? Say literally anything on the topic. You unstickied this thread and it's stayed on page 1 anyway, it's clearly something that people give a damn about since it's FOUR MONTHS OLD.

And if a response isn't forthcoming due to people 'getting mouthy' as was suggested, then that's nothing but petulance of the highest order. People are getting mouthy because people care. If they didn't care, they'd just go 'oh well' and sod off. Don't begrudge people for their love for your own damn game.

WELL SAID. To not expect a backlash after destroying a crucial mode (which is melee) is just absurd and even worse not addressing it after so much time has passed and people still growing in numbers are coming to the fore with their negative experiences with the update.

Uncalled for... like the rework itself?

I couldn't agree more. Whilst quite a few things could have worked out ok in the update such as visual enhancements and directional slams, the total removal of manual block and melee exclusive selection is just the worst, not to mention the cheesy teleporting of weapons animations.

Woah, i thought i was alone on not liking the new melee commands because i dind't see anyone comment about it on reddit or anything.

 To be honest, the weapons popping in and out of existence without a animation bothers me to a extreme degree, and the fact that some combos make your warframe switch back and fourth between the weapon equiped and your melee makes it all look goofy.

 I'm not in rage or anything when it comes to the melee update, but i do wish they add a opt in for the melee change, such as the one they added one for the flight controls for arch-wing, so they could avoid all this backlash in the first place.

 I still hope they give us the option to pick which style of melee we want to use with a switch in the options menu.

As a returning player after a 9 month break i have to say that the new melee is awful.As a speed Volt melee user with a polearm i have to say that it's unplayble.Doing all those stance attacks slows you down and strips away the dps that quick melee had, the only way now is to slide your way through.

I just can't see the meaning behind this new melee, it is the same as the old system in terms of switching between melee and ranged but more slow and clunky with the exception of exalted weapons that can be active all the time but then again it still burns energy while on primary/secondary so it's a 50-50.

First were the op frames cleaning rooms making weapons a liabillity, now the last "ninja aspect" is getting murdered too.Would like the option for old melee.

Worst part is that polearm stance combos DIDN'T lock your movement before the completely uncalled for stealth-nerf to stances that made almost all stances lock movement.

I'm saying we need to watch our tone & demeanor; Never said you should't complain about something, or bring up things you didn't enjoy... Although you seem to be playing the game just fine to me.

New Stances

When melee 3.0 comes out, it would be great if they could bring out some new stance mods for them, two at least. There are some weapons I really want to use but the stances are not that good which to me no matter how strong the weapon is, the stances let it down.

Here are some weapons that needs some new stances; 

·       Sparring

·       Staff

·       Whip

·       Nunchaku

·       Warfans

·       Sword and Shield

·       Scythe

·       Tonfas

·       Blade and Whip

·       Rapier

 

Hopefully DE can also make some more new unique weapons, maybe take some inspiration from RWBY`s weapon arsenal.

 

Weapons I would like to see more of;

·       Claws

·       Scythes Blade and Whips

·       Staffs

·       Katanas

·       Daggers

·       Duel Daggers

·       Sparring

·       Machetes

·       Warfans

 

Combos and attack animations

Even though the order of Wukong`s attacks are different to what it was previously, I don`t think you should change the order of the attack animations for other weapons (including exalted weapon stances) but instead add them to combos that makes sense to the animation.

For an example the spinning needle stance, true kiss can be the stand still combo, (button mashing combo) Accursed whispers can be the block combo, fay intervention can be the moving forward combo and second fay intervention (forward combo) can be the closing the gap combo. (blocking and moving forward)

 

Suggestions for different weapon types

 

Swords:

Note – The running animation when equipping should be put back the way it was. At the moment, it looks like the frame is getting ready to charge for a finishing strike.

Note – Leave the front finisher the way it is or just make it a forward stab, the one shown on the dev stream looks weird.

 

Katnas:

Note - One thing I would like to see is, for them to be used out of the sheath when equipped. (which I see people talk about)

Slide attack - increase its speed.

 

Two-Handed Katanas:

Fix - When doing a finisher, sometime it doesn`t kill the enemy and you`re not on top of the enemy.

 

Duel Swords:

Note - The finisher animation is great however it doesn’t suit it with duel swords. The animation could be the frame turning his back to the enemy stabbing them with both swords making an x with them.

Note – I would like to see duel katanas in the future that used duel sword stances.

 

Heavy Blades:

New back finisher - The animation should be a powerful side swing like your swinging a baseball bat trying to hit the ball. The finisher we have now looks better and makes sense with scythes.

 

Sword & Shields:

Blocking ability - Blocking should be able to block all incoming damage and the damage stored up should be released in any three attacks.

Unique blocking – Blocking while on the move should ragdoll enemies.

New ground slam – The animation is the warframe divebombing the shield into the ground.

 

Daggers:

Unique ground slam -  instead of causing a ragdoll is should do increased damage with a guaranteed slash proc and draw enemies closer to the point of impact.

 

Duel Daggers:

When doing a ground slam, instead of causing a ragdoll is should do increased damage with a guaranteed slash proc and draw enemies closer to the point of impact.

 

Rapiers:

New slide attack – Instead of a swipe, the animation should be a thrust that knocks the enemy off its feet.

 

Machetes:

New back finisher – The animation should be a diagonal slash. This animation make sense for the prova or any future blunt weapons.

 

Gunblades:

Note - Decrease the delay in-between shots.

 

Claws:

New front finisher – The animation is the frame doing an uppercut stab in the neck then the other hand slashing the enemy’s neck.

 

Tonfas:

New ground finisher – It should have the frame shoving both ends of the tonfa into the enemy. This make sense tonfas are mostly blunt weapons.

Glitch - They are held wrong in the warframe`s hand when extracting while have it equipped.

 

Scythes:

New back finisher – The animation puts the enemy on their knees, puts the blade to their necks and pulls back. This will look like its preforming an execution.

 

Glaives:

Note - After the first hit, it should be able to seek out and hit enemies more often. The best weapons that does this successfully is Nezha`s 2nd ability, the falcor and the phahd scaffold.

Note - The button to throw the glaives should be separate from the melee attacks button. I suggest it to be the secondary fire plus the aim mechanic should be able to hit multiple enemies. After throwing the glaive, aim at an enemy makes the glaive come back to striking the enemy and after throwing the glaive, instead of the warframe being disarmed the warframe should be able to perform some punches and kicks like when you get captured by zenuka, these punches and kicks will a chance to stagger and knockdown enemies.

 

Warfans:

Slide & air attacks – Preforming them should cause to hit multiple enemies with a ragdoll.

 

Hammers:

New back finisher - The animation should be a powerful side swing like your swinging a baseball bat trying to hit the ball. The finisher we have now looks better and makes sense with scythes.

Slide Attack - Preforming this should send enemies flying across the room.

 

Fists:

Slide Attack – A successful hit should uppercut the enemy up into the air.

 

Sparring:

Slide Attack - This should send enemies flying across the room.

 

Staffs:

Front Finisher – The animation should be where the warframe spins round with the staff which knocks them out.

 

Polearms:

Fix: When performing a finisher, the weapon looks like it has shrunken in size. (same with staffs)

 

Whips:

Note: I don`t own any whips so I’m just going to talk about what I would like to see from this.

Charge attack – The first attack make spin in a spiral, hitting multiple enemies in front and behind you and knocks them down and the second charge attack pulls an enemy towards you.

Slide attack – Preforming this attack will hit multiple enemies and ragdoll them.

Air attack – The causes to strike straight down the middle striking either one or more enemies.

 

Exalted Weapons:

Wukong

New ground slam – the animation is wukong hanging onto a massive version of his staff slamming the end of it into the ground like one of his combos.

Finishers – All Wukong`s animations for his staff should look different compared to other staffs.

Unique ability – When charging his melee weapon, he spins around knocking enemies down.

Unique ability – When blocking, he can store unlimited raw damage which can be released it in his charge attack, slam attack and with the 3rd ability swipe attack.

Visuals – Since it`s a unique weapon, it visually should reflect its uniqueness.

Glitch - When preforming the animation with no weapons equipped, you can`t see the staff. (this has been like this ever since he was released)

 

 

Valkyr

Note – Since Valkyr is invulnerable when using claws, take away the ability to block attacks, there is no reason for Valkyr to block.

New charge attack – Preforming this will show Valkyr with her arm out in a V shape and then both claws slashing the enemy in front of her causing a knockdown and a slash proc.

 

Small changes to melee weapons;

Note: I know some of these points is something DE has said they were going to do, I’m just putting them down for reminders and that I agree with them plus some of my ideas are mixed in also.

·       The aiming radicle turns yellow to let you know you`re going to do a ground finisher.

·       Increase speed of all finisher animations.

·       Have the ability to lock-on to a single enemy in a 20m radius. (block button) This will help with every stance attack animation to target the enemy.

·       Take away the ability to auto-block, this slow your movement, interrupts finishing your combos and you lose the ability to glide in the air using melee weapons.

·       Show the range of melee weapons in the stats menu.

·       Increase the speed of all slide attacks.

·       When performing a wall attack, make the strike home in on the enemy you`re aiming at within 15m.

·       Have the ability to interrupt your combo to doge or escape.

·       Get rid of the left and backwards combos, they both restrict your movements.

·       Show the weapon`s reach in the stats menu.

·       When blocking a knockdown, the animation is the warframe blocking like it`s using a sword. Make each weapon use the same animation as a normal block.

·       “Devil trigger” mode should fill up a gauge by killing. When filled it should increase melee weapon`s damage, attack speed and increase warframe`s movement speed for a short duration.

·       The sounds of impacting enemies with a melee weapons should be different. (striking flesh, metal armour)

·       There are some weapon finishers that has two parts to the animation and if the enemy can be killed in one hit, they will die in the first hit in the animation. Instead of that, make the first part take half of their health and the second part take the other part of their health. Two examples of weapons that have two finisher animations are katanas front finishers and heavy blades back finishers.

·       Charge attacks if aiming an enemy should propel you towards them to close the gap.

·       If channelling still exists in the melee 3.0, blocking while channelling should reflect damage increasing critical and status chance.

·       Stances that has the weapon thrown in the animation should have a reach of 7m.

 

Why adding automatic blocking is a bad thing.

·       Enemies that knock you down will interrupt you combos.

·       If enemies are shooting you in the air, you will start blocking which keep you in the air and makes you vulnerable to attacks from behind.

·       You no longer are able to glide in the air for mobility with your melee weapon.

·       Mods like guardian derision and Electromagnetic Shielding have no reason to be used.

·       This takes away Excalibur`s 4th ability uniqueness of auto blocking.

·       When preforming combos that has blocking involved, you end up switching weapons unnecessarily.

 

I think Instead of making the shoot trigger (controller) switch weapons make the reload button able for you to switch (which it does anyways) or just make the aim trigger to switch and put the block button back to the shoot button when using melee with this, you are able to block and switch weapons.

 

Arial combos

·       A charge attack while holding the block button will send enemies into the air.

·       Preforming different combos should do different things.

·       Button mashing will keep you in the air longer to perform more combos.

·       Forward combo will not only make you and the enemy move in that direction, the last part of the combo will do a small ragdoll

·       The holding left trigger combo (controller) on the third combo will sent you and the enemy plummeting down on the ground dealing more damage to enemies.

·       Certain weapon types will have different outcomes for uniqueness e.g. left trigger combo while using a heavy blade will ragdoll multiple enemies while duel daggers will have a guaranteed increased critical chance by 15% and critical damage by 2.0.

·       Arial combos will include exalted weapon and will perform some unique actions;

Wukong – While preforming combos, pressing the jump button will make him vault off the enemy making him jump higher in the air gives him an extra double jump.

 

Valkyre – She is able to perform charge attacks in the air which will do more damage.

 

Excalibur – Preforming air combos will make him summon two exalted blades. (just visuals no bonus stats)

 

Baruuk - One of his combos will cause him to kick the enemy in the direction the radical is facing, causing other enemies hit to be knocked down.

 

Abilities

Ash – He can teleport to an enemy in the air, preforming an air finisher and leaping off them which will give him one granted finisher on the next enemy. Preforming blade storm on an enemy in the air will make the enemies move slower the more health they lose. (if enemy is still alive)

 

Garuda - If enemy dies while in the air, they will be dismembered.

 

Finisher Animation

While it might be good to watch, I don`t think it`s necessary to add this feature. For the reason that it takes away the movement and slows combat down plus you will be vulnerable to enemy attacks so please don`t add this.

 

Its possible in the future that operators can benefit from this also, here is a link where I talk about it.

These are my opinions of things I want to see out of this, is there anything you guys want to see happened or add to this?

I came back to warframe after a few month's break knowing that the new melee system had been introduced in phase 1. i have a lot of experience with melee, so i was thrilled to see a new system.

while i do like it how I can easily switch between gun and blade during combat, it does create noticeable issues.

as a melee main, i am heavily reliant on life strike. channeling is toggled off as soon as my gun is equipped. this forces me to toggle channeling back on after transitioning to melee.

i also simply do not like it how melee block is now automatic. i like the option to block and bullet jumping with a melee weapon can ruin the flow of combat.

quick melee equips melee and primary fire and aim equips previous weapon. it seems the developers are committed to making transitions between melee and guns seamless.

so why not remove the current system (or make it optional) and consider the following:

when melee is equipped manually, quick melee will become "Quick Fire" or "Quick Draw".

Quick Fire will fire your previously equipped firearm and secondary fire would work the same way. hold down quick fire to aim your previously equipped firearm and let go to fire.

i think this suggestion is more simple (or at least on paper) and creates less issues than what we have now. as a bonus it leaves more room for more changes. the option to block can safely return since equipping melee would be manual again. the developers can continue developing their original concepts they had planned for blocking (dash attacks, reduced roll range, etc).

We attempted to give constructive feedback about the melee changes after they were released - including all of the points which we highlighted before release and which were completely ignored. It was also completely ignored.

The melee changes hit SEVEN MONTHS ago. Melee is still exactly as deficient as it was at the beginning of 2019. Absolutely no effort has been made to try and bring back any of the lost functionality.

Over half a year. You'd expect a game about ninjas to place a pretty big emphasis on melee. But yet it continues to be ignored.

The only time they've ever listened to player feedback was with the abortive sentinel vacuum changes... and that was most likely due to their lives (possibly? - internet death threats are somewhat less than convincing) being on the line.

Listen to this guy ^ He's been here since page 2. I met him when I came here on page 5. Doomfruit, Maxim_Payne, Ofeban and the others I didn't mention, they all have been trying. Salute to all of you. This here thread is my new warframe have not played since the month of the update.

I just want to be able to block manually and glide, auto block is inconsistent and simplistic.

Alsoslam attacks should knock down not ragdoll.

 

Why not simply make switch to weapons any other button but aim? I play with a controller, using B/O is good for changing to melee, but using aim is not good, it ruins combos and hinders playstyle, I would just rather it be B/O for auto swap melee, and add an option for Y/triangle to change into gun mode also very fast. But pls not the aim. Everything else is manageable.

You were defending a comparison of EA games & DE....  and now you go to throw jabs at me and my reputation ratio. Lol you really think that's why my post:reputation ratio is like that?  *shrug* whatever you want to believe man

Anyway I do want melee to change for the better, and I definitely agree that it would be great If we could hear more about it sometime soon. But people can only move at the speed of human, so regardless of whether we like it or not, we really have no choice but to wait for DEbe ready.... as opposed to having another incomplete idea/rework.

Have you considered that maybe they don't know yet? Maybe they're trying different things, considering all the different feedback, brainstorming, and they haven't decided anything concrete yet? There's also a devstream schedule they need to follow.

Then maybe they could TELL US.

They could say literally anything on the subject rather than going radio silent on it. Say ANYTHING AT ALL. Even a simple "We've heard your issues and are working on ways to address them." would be great, but we've gotten nothing in four whole months. Not a single twinge of acknowledgement of people's complaints. THAT's why people are complaining. Taking time to fix it, sure. But as far as anyone can tell, they either don't care or are just ignoring us and hoping we'll 'get used to it'.

Communication is important and in regards to this subject they're failing tremendously. Yes, they are adults. And yes, they are deserving of proper courtesy.

But so are we.

I suggested this very thing a good while back in the thread, and I still think it'd be fantastic. This thread's friggin' old by forum standards, and new people are still finding it for the first time and putting in their two cents on how they dislike the changes.

Yea, anything (except maybe something like "no changes will be made") would be better than just silence on part of DE.

Heads up Tenno they have replied with the shortest answer possible.

Wukong's 4th ability is now testing melee 3.0 in a small controlled environment.

Please enjoy this information.

But so are we.

And how many other things do we have going on our plate? 

Meanwhile they're also working on atlas prime, Tennocon (pre and post con), new player experience changes, ember and  vauban reworks, 6 new deluxe skins, Gauss and Grendel, empyrian, new war, paradox of duviri, and God knows what else. 

Melee isn't the only thing that's important in this game. We can't expect them to drop everything else to only work on this full-time. So while we do deserve courtesy, I believe they're still within their bounds of being respectful to us. If you want them to move faster on this, then actually do something to help their work/process that isn't just complaining/feedback (which only serves to give them more work)

Edit: For fu$k's sake, they're still recovering from tennocon--It hasn't even been a week since tennocon finished! Not to mention wukong is also testing melee 3.0, which is something they've clearly announced a few weeks ago.

Which does absolutely nothing to remedy the issues of scanners/drills/spears getting unequipped, the inability to use alt-fire after melee, the breaking of syndicate procs, the disabling of automatic reload after melee, the complete lack of manual control over blocking and the clunkiness of channelling (the latter part is not something I've personally experienced, but that's because I never used it in the first place).

And how many other things do we have going on our plate? 

Meanwhile they're also working on atlas prime, Tennocon (pre and post con), new player experience changes, ember and  vauban reworks, 6 new deluxe skins, Gauss and Grendel, empyrian, new war, paradox of duviri, and God knows what else. 

Melee isn't the only thing that's important in this game. We can't expect them to drop everything else to only work on this full-time. So while we do deserve courtesy, I believe they're still within their bounds of being respectful to us. If you want them to move faster on this, then actually do something to help their work/process that isn't just complaining/feedback (which only serves to give them more work)

Edit: For fu$k's sake, they're still recovering from tennocon--It hasn't even been a week since tennocon finished! Not to mention wukong is also testing melee 3.0, which is something they've clearly announced a few weeks ago. 

And how many weeks, wait, MONTHS, before Tennocon were these issues pointed out? How many months were they completely ignored?

You realize that it takes them months to gather enough data/feedback in something, while they're working on it? 

You realize that those are months of which they were also working on all of the other things I mentioned already, in preparation for tennocon? 

You realize that partway through those months, the actually HAVE mentioned their progress for melee 3.0? 

So your argument falls flat. You're purely just complaining for the sake of it, since you didn't get *exactly* what you wanted.... But that takes time

Some of these issues (terrible stances being the main one) were pointed out even before the melee changes even got released. Others, like mining tools or scanners unequipping themselves, should have been immediately recognised as a direct loss of functionality and likewise fixed pronto. Autoblock was almost universally hated (in opinions which were by no means ambiguous) from the start, yet it persists to this date.

No, there's plenty in that argument. What the did was dump a bunch of unfinished crap on us and then let it rot for half a year with only the barest "meh" and a feeble wave of their hand (Donkey Kong's stance change) as an illusion of a fix.

You forget that melee is a core system of this game. It's been gutted. All this other crap they're working on is pointless if the core is defective. It doesn't matter how shiny the walls and windows are if the foundation is made out of sand.
