Archwing Variety Fix (Itzal Nerf), K-Drive problems

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Both the Plains of Eidolon and especially the Orb of Vallis is just simply way to huge, and k-drives are too slow, we have timed missions to get to, spiders and eidolons to reach. Plus, everyone and their mother is equipped with anti-archwing missiles.

If you nerf Itzal, I'm just gonna take my max range/efficiency Nova and sh*t all over the Plains anyway, and get through it in 5 seconds flat.


The issue 👏isn't 👏 Itzal

I remember watching brozimes video about this. Where does it end? After they nerf itzal they will go after archwings as a whole, then mobility abilities, then operator, then bullet jumping. Cause, news flash DE, all of the above are faster then kdrive.

Just keep nerfing everything until only Atlas with hobbled dragon key is left, then remove bullet jumps and sprinting.

1st. If we didn't have these f-ing tiny insta-death missiles going through protection abilities spammed by basically every ground enemy, there'd be a reason to use other archwings too for what they offer. A huge shocker! Let us use the damn archwings for actual missions and combat in open world, and suddenly speed is no longer the only factor which matters. And let us use our archguns (with Gravimag only I suppose) on open world archwings. Just sayin'

2nd. K-Drive is never going to be as good as operator mode with some waybounds, let alone flying in archwing, Zephyr, Nova and such. K-Drive is a ground crawler which doesn't even let you fight. It's basically a fun side-activity of "Lotus Hawk's Pro-Sk8er", nothing more. And considering that archwings in fact come later in the progression overall, IMO it's fine. Otherwise you might as well make an argument that AkLex Pr or AkStiletto Pr should be nerfed because they outperform AkLato and Mk1 Braton.

nah, just questionable balence changes in the workshop. Buff kdrives, don't nerf everything else to be garbage.

 

Even other devs were giving a "is this a late April fool's joke?" face when they heard him talk about fixing kdrives issues by nerfing itzal. Just doesn't make sense.

its not just scott dont be naive, you think he dropped that itzal nerf in a devstream out of nowhere ? for how many years do you think they know each other ? this idea had to be discuses  for months or years and scott was the perfect person to get the word out because hes a meme in this community on nerf matters, they're just testing the water.

and you can go to the plains/valleys right now and see for yourself how fun and amazing is to walk on foot or with kdrive to do bounty's, itzal blink just ease things up and DE dont like that from the look of it, they want us to spend more time playing walking simulator just so they have more current players in-game wasting they're time for absolutely nothing.

DE are hiding behind the beta tag so bad and its need to be stopped, they have no repsect for our time or money when it comes to they're bottom lines, and gotta stand up for ourselves.

See.  I wasn't going hostile to DE.  

I really enjoy playing Warframe.  I want to keep playing it mostly the way I am now with improvements here and there.  Nothing about nerfing the Itzal sounds like an improvement tho.  

That's what I was trying to get across.  That comment Scott made was in context to nobody using anything but the Itzal.  My point is that the problem isn't the Itzal is OP or anything.  It's that it's exactly the right tool for what players need.  

Basically, getting from Point A to Point B is a nail, and the Itzal is the only hammer while the K-drive is more of a spatula.  The solution isn't to force players to trying hammering in nails with spatulas.  The solution is to give us reasons to use a spatula in the first place.

What a surprise, the Itzal nerf is gonna do exactly what it's intended to, give people MORE OPTIONS! I like how you guys are digging yourselves deeper and deeper into the ground, making the Itzal nerf sound more and more reasonable with each post.

Quite a bit of hyperbole going on there.

Enemies has hitscan. There you go.

i fail to see the significance of this short statement - are you referring to when Archwings get shot down? rarely are you getting Damaged out of Archwing, it's usually going to be that literally any Enemy shot some SAM's at you, which will cancel Archwing if a few of them hit you and they probably will if you're not Teleporting.

yeah they should only listen to the meatloaf eater who sallow anything DE throw at them.

feedback is still feedback be it in general discussion or feedback section, you dont drop a bomb like this on a devstream then except everyone to be quite about it.

and on the topic, what will nerfing blink would change ? why did it become a problem,em only now ? itzal blink have jack to do with damage or healing or whatever the hell.

blink is used for one propose only and its to travel fast trough the empty shallow crappy and boring open world DE keep dropping on our heads that they ijnect with many syndicate time walls that force you to do bountys and boring crap to progress trough them and all of the rewards are hidden behind a freaking rng.

you can have your promised nerfed/removed blink right now, go to the valleys and pop up your k-drive and farm some bountys and lets see how that would make you view the game differently after you have done this for months or even years.

Itzal did nothing wrong, DE just want us to be more miserable grinding they're time rng gates, nobody have times to look at rocks and body of waters scott, thats it .

Before Archwings became free to use I exclusively ran Nova on the plains.

Allowing me to use Itzal whenever I needed to travel gave me a lot more options for my warframe.

If they nerf Itzal,Nova, Volt and the other archwings I'll be left with what exactly?

K-Drive or crawl?

That's just one option.

Yea, it's meant to be exaggerated since by the third nerf at the latest they would realize. "Maybe we should buff kdrives instead of nerfing everything else" but I wasn't exaggerating the fact that even without archwings, warframes alone are better mobility options then kdrives.

Yeaah.... Itzal isn't at fault. K-Drives, while neat, aren't designed for the terrain in mind. Nerfing Itzal to force people to use K-Drives when not everyone likes them is a bad idea.

Let people play how they want, DE.

No, I meant, nerf Itzal and already people have a crapton more options. Even before the nerf has been put in place, people are already figuring out they can simply replace Itzal with either the Void Dash, or Nova's Wormhole, or Volt's ridiculous speed, or heck, Itzal itself, cause it's still the fastest archwing. That's 4 different choices as opposed to Itzal being the ONLY choice when it came to fast movement across the open worlds. Goal achieved right there.

i would much prefer if all arch wings had itzals speed. solved. better buff the other than nerf something nice, right ? its not like were in a competitive pvp game here. scott mentioned choice...if all archwings were this fast, or at least half as fast, then -> solved and choice remains imo.

While I do agree, you are right, I don't think buffing K-Drives is the answer. By allowing players to speed through environments, we might as well just tell DE to stop making environments and give us a flat plane with a big point B marker. As it stands, I do feel DE is wasting a lot of time and resources on assets majority of the players won't even notice.So I'd say it be more cost efficient if DE stopped creating new tiles and maps as the players do not care about it seems.
