Nightwave: Intermission live on all Platforms!

Recommended Posts

I'm away Saturday until the 26th,
I read that the Catch-up feature IS live.

Will I be able to catch up on all missions?
It says 3 at a time, does this mean I just need to do those 3 before another 3, or can you ONLY do 3 missed missions each week.

Aaa yes, I missed Nightwave! And by missed I mean the fun tasks that I can do with my clan and not Nora prattling nonsense into my ears. I hope we'll get tasks like the 60 seconds survival or did we had a defense challenge? Or heck even stuff like finish a mission under 2 mins that would be fun too 😛

Well, you could also remove the "use x forma" task.

There are people who dont want/need to use any forma anymore and since you wont cut the build time of formas this is not a great task.

So a quick series of questions regarding Nightwave: Intermission.

  • Is this going to be a recurring series between Nightwave seasons so we're not left with a drought for Nitain and Potatoes?
  • If so, does this mean Nora Cred will not expire, unlike Wolf/Emissary Cred?
  • If not, will there be any gaps?  As nice as GoTL alerts are, they're only every so often as opposed to practically being there on tap.
  • Finally, and I understand this to be a longshot, could the next Nightwave Intermission delve deeper into Nora Night herself?  The fact that she's mysterious is great, but maybe teasing us with little hints of how she got where she is would be pretty cool as well.

What a great task... "waste your resources". And then they are adding that "pet your pet" in S2. DE are truly mocking us.

So, Nightwave.

 

The rewards are a bit wonky here.  Not bad, but the 3 orokin cells are less a reward and more of a drop from a hidden cache (I got multiple x2 orokin cells as part of the Nightwave requirement).

The Aura forma is....depressing.  Your game penalizes anything in regular play but corrosive projection, energy siphon, or steel charge.  The inclusion of an insanely rare drop, with 4x the cost of simply applying a - or V polarity, is fundamentally backward.  If it dropped at current cost very early, it might be a useful experimental sink for newer players but as a reward for grind is profoundly underwhelming.

 

The Forma challenge.  I get it, you want to force usage, as 6 years in people are sitting on mountains of the things.  Even one a day is eventually going to add up, especially with months between substantial content drops.  The issue I have here is 3.  1 is a chore.  2 is frustratingly forcing people to grind back to functional.  3 means that I have a pool of good weapons I have spent a month sitting on, and have gone unused, because plowing forma into useless mastery rank trash is getting to be an actual annoyance.  Personally Ballistica Prime, Komorex, and Glaxion Vandal have all gotten V polarities.  This isn't introducing people to the game and features, it's a penalty for anyone not willing to grind.  The items in question have been out for weeks, so there is a serious potential that people already plowed enough forma into them, which is why this challenge gets the hate that it does.

 

Robotics slots....please tell us that this means a new robot is coming.  The three Moas are entirely outclassed by Kavats.  The last new sentinel was Oxylus.  It'd be nice to have more than the fisher (Oxylus), scanner (Helios), meme immortal (Djinn), ammo restocker (Carrier), and trash (Dethcube, Diriga, Shade and Wyrm may have use cases but I can't say their niche is interesting).   Before I say that though, let's review the two Kavats (crit and reward) or the mutts (Kubrows base stats are from so long ago in the game that they need a no-longer available collar upgrade and are still underwhelming).  I just hope that pets 2.0 drops sometime soon, as it was teased a year ago.  Since then there's been only a few timer changes, and set mods to try and spice up the nothing they are.  It would be disappointing if this was just a reward pulled from a hat. 

 

 

If it isn't clear, Nightwave 1.5 is better, but still not Alerts.  It isn't constantly changing, the underlying feeling of being a chore persists, and the top tier to grind for being an ephemera is a fantastic reddit title for the "Murdered by Words" section.  Ephemeral - a thing which is fleeting or existing for a very short period of time.  Reward - a thing bestowed to commemorate an achievement or accomplishment.  An ephemeral reward is the same thing as a phyrric victory.  Maybe consider that going forward....?

Very good question!

There is no Prestige past Rank 15 in Intermission. Intermission is short, sweet, and simply an interim gap.

Series 2 will have Rank Prestige back.

Does this mean that there's no safety net, i.e. 100% completion or no rank 15?
Or just that excess Rep has no use?

Can you let those of us who didn't max ranks for the episode 1 content  progress it when we reach the top rank in the intermission?

My guess 100% will give you around 220k  rep and you need 150k to get tier 15 , those extra 70k have no use.

"Nightwave: Intermission is now live on all platforms until July 5th at 11:59 PM ET."

That is great information, I love you for your ability to learn from past mistakes (I lost the Umbra forma missing 2k standing). But please put the information on the Nightwave screen in-game. Far from everyone reades these posts.

Noone is forced to do anything 🙄 You don't even need to do all challenges to get to max level in time

But I want to do ALL the challenges. I just don’t like ones that make me use resources that I don't wanna use. I’m not the only one who feels this way...by far. IDC if 1 of the rewards is 3 forma. It’s annoying when you have formad pretty much everything you want to forma.

I would rather have an exilus forma. 🙂

There's always something more to forma.  I don't understand people, there are hundreds of things to forma in this game.  Unless you actually have every single frame and weapon fully forma'ed out, which I seriously doubt as that takes thousands upon thousands of hours as well as thousands of forma.  It helps if you don't contradict yourself in 2 sentences you say you want to do all the challenges, then you say you don't want to use forma to complete the challenge.  On top of that, if you miss one challenge you can still attain rank 15 in intermission so what's the big deal about missing a challenge.  If you wanted a really bad version of nightwave it would be one where you had to do 100% of the challenges to get to max rank.  DE realized this so you didn't have to do absolutely every single challenge presented.

Its nice game you have in your bugs.

Once again the thing not ranking up completely killed off any interest I might have had in this thing.

I do void ones with no audio and I find 3 out of 3 about 95% of the time.

Youre just missing them thast all. Some of them can be in the most ridiculous places sometimes.

no they straight up just weren't spawning, i didn't even get the counter on screen for them, after i logged back in today it worked fine... i've been seeing alot of people say they needed to relog for things to work right lately, just going to chalk this up to that. Also does anyone know when they might be fixing the stuck doors on some maps? like today i had to go back and find a piece of breakable glass on the hull to set off an alarm to fix the door because i had killed everyone on the way to the objective and couldn't get the door to open to leave. I only ever seem to have the issue on corpus ships.
