Should DE follow bungie's footsteps on balancing for endgame?

If I were to hazard a guess, either giving certain enemies innate resistance to certain abilities, or add in a mechanic that prevents the current degree of power spam.

nullifier it is

With recent news about bungie nerfing many things that considered OP for endgame, bringing them to be in line with other gears and how many people complain that there's no endgame or challenging content, I want to ask you guys if you agree to nerfing things in warframe as balancing to make the endgame challenging?

Some things to consider, if you guys agree to nerf OP things in warframe, these are some examples of things that will be gone for good

- No more one-shotting eidolon or other bosses with chroma

- No more AoE map nuking in ESO or other modes with saryn or other map nuking frames

So, to reach optimum damage output, you will need support frames to buff the team or debuff enemies

What do you think? Should we suggest DE to follow bungie in this?

To avoid the sh1tstorm and as a compromise: Perhaps they could do something Conclave-like, i.e. making the rebalanced skills/stats a separate "set" compared to the normal ones. Thus giving players that want a challenging mode the option to switch to an "iron man nightmare" mode, where they are just matched with like-minded players, while giving DE the chance to experiment with the rebalancing without the need to touch the current "balance" of powers in the rest of the game.

I just watched Bungie's ViDoc, and i'll say IF they deliver an FPS with mmo/rpg elements, a good story, an actual endgame (i.e. raids, dungeons, etc), and a decent pvp experience, i'll definitely be playing. Hard to tell if I'll stop playing WF, but the brainless looter shooter mechanics are getting quite a bit stale.

one thing though, we're thanos when compared to other game characters, but it's far from brainless when you have these status/crit/power calculations

i remember watching a video a while back where the person claimed how SOME of the warframe community is stupid, instead asking for tougher content from the devs they want everything to be nerfed to get FAKE difficulty... Now I know where he got that impression... Iv found the source of that stupidity!

 

On a side note.. warframe's whole purpose is to feel powerful.. its supposed to be like (2000 kills in 1 hour) for example... in destiny you dont get 2000 kills an hour..

We're basically gods so what kind of challenge you can have as gods? Since people cry something is too hard when we have something slightly tougher and demand the nerf

A big dilemma here

Look at the recent threads on the Corpus Spy Sortie

It is not even harder, just different layout. Already people want it removed.

I mean I won't complain if I get to go back to vanilla vaults with no brain needed...

they really have to stop listening to the vocal minority of morons. that's DE's main problem imo.

See? I have 2 ideas for something resembling a challenge stirring up in my brain to the point of hurting my brain constantly but I can't release them because it would be "too hard"

It's really a vortex in here, almost unable to think straight

I think DE came very close to an actually challenging endgame with Arbitration missions.

Tough enemies, 1 life, and decent rewards albeit with rather stingy drop chances.

I thoroughly enjoyed running Arbitration missions because it really pushed you to the limit of how powerful you can be. We all have our idea of a perfect build but before we never really got to test them to their full capability. I feel like Arbitration missions really allowed that.

chroma needs a rework no a nerf.  (his 2 & 3 would be nerfed but brought in line with rhino and Oberon)

agreed but ESO would need changes it is currently only practical to do with a Saryn.  you can use a Excal with a Valk to a similar effect but it is not as good and harder to pull off.

I like the suund of this but I like playing Oberon and Valk (and now wisp) because they can support and help the team, however they currently need a buff if they are to me of much use.  Oberon on his own does not have quite enough healing and Valk gives % armor if she game DR or flat armor then she would be a better support wisp is almost purfect as a suport frame with a good and synergistic heal good CC and decent speed boost.  her only problem is that she doen't stack with her self (but does stack with Oberon making both frames better together)

many frames need buff and nerfs but it must be done through reworks and game changes not welp mesa now does half of the damage she used to.  that will be hard to do but better for the game in the long run.  as of right now they need to pick a frame in each category and balance to that frame support would be wisp, tank would be Valk, ect.  each frame roughly fits in one or two RPG classes and that should be used to their benefit when trying to attain balance but when you need to add 4 frames a year with 2 major content releases per year it can be difficult to do.

You're hitting things pretty on the head, but...

I'm pretty annoyed by every elite/boss-type enemy immediately getting some BS immunity to powers, status procs, and eventually armor-stripping effects like Shattering Impact/Corrosive Projection/etc.

these tools are just plain game-breaking so DE finds it more convenient to simply turn them off whenever they actually make a serious difference (y'know, rather than just letting us overkill hapless mooks by 20x instead of 10x)

What are you complaining about here? DE totally lets us overkill basic enemy units (and that's most of them) with whatever silly methods we like. Those are the mooks. Other rarer, more elite enemies have counter-Tenno measures so that they feel different to fight, portray some depth in enemy capabilities, and ideally ask us to mix up our playstyle, customizing to better deal with the variations in enemies. If literally every enemy in the game were easily defeated by Warframe powers alone, for example, this game would turn into a Mesa-based idle game for iPhone and Android.

Should just simply make the enemy has more hp when more people in the squad, like every 4 player team based game ever.
Thats the simplest way to add some sort of balance so no "1 guy press 4 and other 3 afk" thing because enemies are stronger in full squad and team contribution is needed.
but heh, seems people who play warframe really just wants easy wins so thats not gonna happens

Holy crap this was a long time ago.

Anyway, simple typo on my part - I meant to switch the places of the 10x and 20x. The gist of my point is that it's really annoying to me that DE decides to fully shut-off portions of the player's arsenal rather than tone down the arsenal as a whole to let all the different tools at our disposal play nicely with one another. Enemies that are tougher to kill with powers than guns, or vice-versa? Fine. Enemies that favor melee over gunplay, or vice-versa? Fine.

But where I draw the line is when resistances turn into lazy immunities, and the mechanics consequently boil down into a simple color-by-numbers jump-through-the-flaming-hoop puzzles. I don't particularly enjoy having the game dictate when I can or cannot use specific tools to my advantage; it cheapens the power fantasy IMO. All that needs to happen is that particularly powerful tools (take your Peacemaker example) need to be suitably limited.

Nullifiers, etc. are one thing, but when you have major foes like the WOSS and Eidolons catering to a very specific subset of builds due to outright ignoring everything else the player can throw at them I find that decreases variety rather than sustains it.

We have this limitation on peacemaker, and this happens

DE shouldn´t follow anyones footsteps, but nevertheless they will in one way or another.

DE should balance the game, but again they won´t. They had the chance when they introduced Sorties, but they didn´t. Sure there will be balance passes every now and then but powercreep will allways play a role.
