Nightwave Forma Challenge

Recommended Posts

This is honestly the only challenge I have a real problem with. For many players, forma is a valuable and rare resource, and having to waste it on items we might not be too enthusiastic about is a real shame. It'd be better if it at least gave progress for using it in crafting or leveling a syndicate, but that's not the case. I know Nightwave has forma rewards, but last season, the challenges completely counteracted those that we received as rewards. I was really hoping that challenge would be removed form the pool for this season, but if not, I at least hope future seasons will expand the range of uses that grant progress, so we don't need to waste forma on items we don't really want to polarize.

Looks like the community once Season 2 started and we got both the Gild and the 3 forma challenge even though DE said they listened to our feedback.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of building a weapon that I've already built my variants of just to get a challenge done. Why not just do something where we have to earn affinity with a forma'd weapon and a modular weapon. No need to build more, just earn the requisite affinity.

Would be interesting to see the player data behind the decision to include the Forma challenge.  

A lot of vets are in this position but I doubt it's true for newer to middling players who still have a lot of content to work through.  I imagine that challenge is geared towards those types of players, not us, and DE doesn't seem interested in creating tailored challenges for players in our position.  (Granted, that would take a lot of effort for something that seems pretty inconsequential to the devs)

^ This is a much better idea. Kill N enemies with an amp vs. leech on Hydron to gild Mot amp, etc.

the forma one annoys me most the time as well. this time around the new prime releases came out so i could forma something worthwhile but thats not always the case.

the gilding one is just awful though. i have all the amps/kitguns/zaws i want built and leveled right now. im not about to grind to make another one just for a challenge. so i just slkip it.

This and the Gild Challenge are bollocks. How about a challenge of "Don't Die in A Mission"? That's much better.

If anything, nightwave challanges needs to be harder, a lot harder. 

You know that you don't need to do all the challanges to reach max level before season ends right? You can just skip the ones you don't like or can't do. 

3 forma is 35p. Spend 30 mins in orokin vaults and you can make 35p, or sell primed junk, you might get lucky and get an expensive prime part. 

Take a challange for what it is, a challange. Nightwave is already nerfed heavily to satisfy new and solo players.

the probleme is that this isnt a challenge. DE is just asking us to spend our ressources into something we dont wanna.

Maybe that is the challange, spend your valuable resources. 

I am Mr 27 and I have plenty of min maxed Warframe + weapon builds. I can still think of 10 warframes and 20 weapons that I want to forma. Are you seriously telling me you don't see anything to put forma on? How about the new prime monkey or the weapons?

Like I said, then they will have to skip it. There is no need to do all nightwave missions to reach lvl 30.

It's not even that bad now that we have that catch-up mechanic where you can still do missed challenges.

list to doesn't automatiacally means they do whatever we want them to do... but yes, i would like to see the 'gilding' one gone too. the forma one doesn't bother me too much... yet... but at some point i'll have everything forma-maxed out and, then this will also be an annoyance.

Don't do the challenge if you don't want to. You can still easily reach 30.

That'd be even easier than the "Pet your kubrow or kavat" one we had the other day. At least that one might have a newer player that needs to get the Howl of the Kubrow quest done. You'd have to try really hard to run the E Prime mission on Earth and die if you've been playing the game for more than an hour.
