Dont Make Old Weapons Weak. [Updated]

Dont release new weapon as much stronger. Some people including me like older weapons, you should make newer and higher tier weapons have more polarities by themselves..
OR something else, that would let me keep my weapon as strong as newer weapons are.
I want to work on my weapon, and keep it strong. I dont want to keep changing to weapons i dont like, just because they are stronger..

[uPDATE]
I wasnt clear enough, so i will use an example.
You get some low tier cheap weapon (gorgon?), its good, but when you progress to tier 6 you can get something more expensive, and harder to acquire, OR spend time and resources on your weapon instead, and upgrade your weapon to higher tier.

This way higher tier weapons arent exactly the same as first guns you get, but if you love your gun, you spend just as much or even more time upgrading it to a higher tier.

This way noone get good guns cheap. To get good gun you have to work for it. This way new weapons are worth getting, but if someone really likes his  weapon, he can keep it competitive.

I think the devs are trying to get us to use alot of dif weapons and warframes. i dont let them push me around to much with there asking us to play dif things to get mastry. I got put 5 forma into my ignis and now it got a huge buff, so i think they will even things out after they put items into the game. nurfs and buffs will be had by all. but in the end it will all be the same

Vertical progression is fine when it gives you more options instead of making previous options obsolete. Anything else is just an insult to players who invested a lot of time and money on an ultimately inferior option (I feel you fellow Grakata fans, but it's so hard to pass up "Grakata but better"). You wouldn't even have to remove the mastery system, just change the perk it gives and not handle it the worst possible way.

 

The whole "working as intended" debacle has proved in the past that DE isn't immune to making bad calls (or reconsidering them when people make strong points against them), but this time a lot of people seem to be supporting them and I'm not convinced they're doing it for the right reasons. The "no nerfs ever" crowd is especially toxic and it sickens me that DE seems to actually be listening to them (except when the game becomes literally impossible to lose like with Ember/Trinity).

yeah, forma soma 5 times and compare with others. They said that higher tier weapons will be more rewarding, They should not. They should have something special about them, but should not be stronger by themselves.

Equal polarities should mean equal power.

You Braton should never compare to my Flux rifle, forma's or not. That simple. Not saying it is in anyway right now, just giving an example.

Why not? "It should be stronger because it's more expensive" or "It should be stronger because it requires more mastery" are the exact points we're arguing against.

Isnt using a nice lazor or flamethrower instead of a normal non special rifle nice enough? higher tier weapons are cooler, and more unique, and that should be it imo. Give them more polarieties by default so they are worth more, and who wants to, will work more on older weapons and will make them useful too.

Because you can buy your braton for a small sum of credits. I had to craft my Flux rifle. I put work into mine, you blew up a few ships and killed some dude named Vor finance yours. Mine took more work, time and effort, yours took and hour of shooting guys in green body armor. Should I not be rewarded for my investment? Should death ray not be better than a short barrel rifle? Its not like yours doesn't have some differences, like its effective range, but in the role that my rifle plays, its way way better, else what would be the point of even researching it?

No. Why would I even bother wasting time on weapons that weren't worth the investment? Don't give me, its part of the game crap because the truth is, you need to answer that question yourself.

I wouldn't mind some vertical progression, but horizontal is better for the most part.

 

Grinner/Corpus weapons: low tier - Tenno weapons: mid tier - Vandal/Wraith weapons: mid+/high tier - Clantech/Prime weapons: high tier. And then you'd have a whole bunch of variety within those tiers, that IMHO would be the best way.

In the future I'd like to see Tenno weapons be upgradable into Prime equipment with the proper parts and blueprints, and very long term I'd like to see some of the Clantech require Grinner or Corpus weapons as research requirements.

 

The stock Braton shouldn't be as good as the Dera/Flux Rifle, but the Brandal should be on almost the same level and the Braton Prime should definately be comparable.

 

Edit: You'd could also make the tiers have slightly different focuses, Grinner and Corpus weapons would be all about bullet spam and blunt damage, Tenno weapons would be precise scalpel like weapons with good chance of crits, Clantech would be weird and wonderful varients of stock faction equipment, and Primes would be basically damage upgrades for Tenno weapons.

Old weapons will be weak, so they can add new weapon that is much stronger and you will spend your Forma.

That is like the things are going in this game.

I liked Gorgon back in CB before nerf, now we got Soma.

I would actually have to spend more forma on older weapon, not on newer one.
