Can something be done about Saryn?

Wow this thread still going? Has anybody realised that there's a chance that op was in one of the 4 beginning planets where any decent moded frame can wipe out the level no big deal? If we went by this every frame gets a unjust nerf just cause a new player complain that a average player went to earth and vaporized all the Lv 1 enemies while looking for plant scans. 

Well, I don't know, I don't think they have Sorties on the beginner planets....

This argument doesn't make much sense. Mostly because, by nature, nukes dictate things for others - when there's a nuke in the mission, you have to massive alter your playstyle around it or just accept the nuke. I could just as easily say "Play solo then. Stop trying to dictate people into nuking" and have it be just as valid.

It's not a productive line of argument. Clearly, if this many people have a problem with Saryn, then a problem exists, and a solution should be found.

I don't think that many actually do want a nerf tbh.  A very vocal few, certainly, but having read the whole thread (yes, that was a flex) I'd say probably more are opposed to a nerf than for it.

And I still maintain that given the average mission length is probably in the 5-10 min range, even if you despise saryn and you get in a team with her (rare) you only have to put up with it for a few short minutes.  It's sad how entitled some players are that they think the game should be designed around them personally.

Well, this game has something and it is that if you want to find a challenge you can find a challenge. The error is not about saryn rushing low mode content. As Gara, ember, volt, equinox or an Amprex, Catchmoon or whatever leveled and with equipment can do. The error is consider you can go public and find a challenge every game. 

Sorties are rushed from people that have done tons of them. I dont need to do every sortie with a pistol acting like a devotee to see how the other players enjoy or how good are them. 

The error is not the warframe the error is who try to find something where it isn't. Is demonstrated Saryn is not broken if you bring the numbers to the table so after that we dont need to say anything else. Others are tears. Most of them from frustrated players that try to show how good they are also in the wrong place and banissed by someone that is only rushing.

You never thought how fast people do the missions when you begin to play? That is frustrating also for new players. This is the same. LEt's nerf warframes and do them slower!
And the problem is they talk without argument and without knowledge about what the warframe they talk about is in the reality. And they are not much, they are a bit. But mostly veterans are not here losing the time because they know they are not going to find reasonable people. Just read the whole thread. "sayin is for noobs", "Nuke frame", "you only know to play Saryn", etc, etc. 

All going down when someone bring the arguments and the reality of the numbers.

Practically no one has a problem with Saryn.

Go to recruit chat in the game and wait for just one hour. I can almost guarantee you'll find at least 3-5 people if not more asking for a carry or for help with some low level content.
No one has a problem with someone else helping them through content or just leveling up something for them or hopping into ESO and having a Saryn sit there and carry them to 8 waves for drops. *no one*

Ask every single one of them and offer to help them. Tell them if it's okay if you use Saryn and I can guarantee they won't care who you play so long as you can get them through 8 waves of ESO/SO for their drops or complete the spy mission for them or help them farm for something.
(I'm MR27, I have nothing else I need to farm or do right now, I sit in the recruit chat and help people, no one cares what frame I use and no one cares where we go to farm for something so long as they get it)

============

The only people that want to complain are the very minor number of players who want to hop onto the forums and complain about it.
Warframe averages in the tens of thousands of players (if not more) online at any given time. If it were an issue this board would be inundated with posts and all we're seeing here are just a very few players who, we assume, and who already has revealed as much through their posting that

1) Don't know how to play the game well.
2) Are new.
3) Think the game should be made to their specifications and think their opinion is worth more than those of others.

It is a very small number of players against the backdrop of many more players that care. If we're going to cater to every player then we need to cater to me as well. Buff Mesa. ty 🙂

Warframe's easiness is my largest pet peevee about it and it's the reason why I don't really play this game for more than a few weeks at a time. Every now and then, once or twice a year, I come to check the new content, level up some new stuff, realize there's no actual point since every mission there is can be cheesed with a quick build copy off the Internet...

I was very happy when Trinity's OPness was fixed; I was happy when a certain secondary stopped being miles ahead every primary weapon; so on. And I'm going to be happy when Saryn's 4 gets toned down.

I enjoy this game better when it's hard. When you actually might fail a mission and it's not just a mindless grind with no skill required. All those Limbo, Saryn, etc, shenanigans should not be a thing in my opinion. Squad composition should genuinely matter (for things other than how fast you can grind stuff) and weapons that require good aim etc should be on par, or better, than weapons where you can just keep the mouse button down. For example, a fully geared Amprex or Ignis Wraith is way better than Vectis Prime even if you're a very good shot. Makes no sense. Same goes for Frames. Something like Banshee and her Sonar should be very high up in the food chain in the hands of skilled players, but when do you hear anyone ask for a Banshee for a squad? Never, since she neither nukes the whole map nor increases loot nor the speed with which loot is gained..

You could always run solo, that’s what I do.

As you progress you will begin to appreciate the immense effort and time it takes to get a frame and gear to the point that you witnessed with that Tenno running saryn.

Me personally, when I see something like this, it fills me with excitement and encouragement...knowing that if I too continue to invest in this game, I just might be able to do the same.

Saryn isnt all that good against Corpus robotics and shes pritty useless against sentients. 

They should rather buff up other frames. 

Or just lower the spread of her spores.

Saryn is currently my No.3 Go-to warframe. Whenever i get bored by Zephyr or Mesa, both tying up my first choice depending on what i need.

Since i usually run 30 to 60 mins Kuva Fortress survivals, this is the most accurate experience i can draw from: 

Saryn isnt overpowered. Her Kit is dull and easy, sure, but other than Mesa or Birdy, you have no active tank or shield ability, and when it comes to hard CC the only real choice you have is to kill them outright. Ofc saryn can do that, but you lot in the higher ranks certainly know that a lvl 100 bombard just needs to get one good shot off to deck you before he dies to the spores himself. 

I might be a bit biased, or just bad.... i mean this is the internet, and were all just one step away from being called a noob and l2p, but i think saryn is in a good place period. Simple and easy kit but still requires focus and attention at higher levels.

 

Personally i however like a bit more complex stuff, so i 2&3 spam the S#&$ out of Mesa and Byrdie 😄

Well.. I don't wanna be mean or anything, but, when you just do Hydron on repeat, you can fully forma up a frame in just a few hours. So that's all the effort it really takes, given that you have the forma. Which, nowadays, you've plenty of ways to get. The mods you need aren't very special and you should pretty much have them if you've just played a while.

That said, yeah, I like going with unranked or unoptimized builds and play with friends or just do lower level content in random squads hoping that I get newbies in the team. It's fun 🙂

That response is far less mean than it is inconsiderate or disheartening...not to me, I’ve been max MR for years.  But to others, pretty much anyone that isn’t near max MR.

Theres enormous time and effort involved with simply maxing a single primed mod or vitality...unless you throw a bunch of money at it.  Which I not only do not disapprove of, but I encourage.  This is a great damn game, if they can’t or don’t make money (and lots of it), it’ll go away...and I DO NOT WANT THAT.

Me reading this thread.

I’m thankful for Saryn, because with her around I fall under the radar. Granted, “Day only” Equinox irritate me because she can do more than just nuke.

How about we let people play how they want to? If you are unhappy with your current squad, leave and try again.

Ash sure he is a stupidly broken frame but that is why i loved it, and now he is collecting dust with how clunky his ulti is specially on console. one of the reason why i despise these kind of complains.

ember on the other hand as mentioned is just for low level content and is not broken. 

saryn only excels in survival and eso where enemy spawns are endless. maybe in defense but a bit annoying. put her in the open world and my wukong twin without melee will make her fall to her knees. 

as many have put it already there is a frame in every situation. saryn out damages you because the situation is primed for her success. 

another question to consider is. why use saryn if i can have more loots in survival if i run nekros or hydroid. end mission score screen is worthless but loot count is a didferent thing. 

why spend 5+ minutes in defense if i can finishe it in 3 with saryn. in defense void fissure i nuke after everyone got their reactants to speed things up. 

boring? probably, efficient? yes, is it clowning around? never. 

this is a farming game and if meta dictates that this is the most efficient way to do things, people will follow. 

And when you succeed and destroyed saryn's usability because of nerf the meta will just switch to another broken thing and when all is gone because all is the same for the same of balance so are the players. 

WF is known for being overpowered it is a special niche that pulls players in and when everything is nerfed and gone, WF will just be another looter shooter devoid of its personality.

Ash and Ember players seemingly a rarity these days. And it's a shame since Ash's deluxe and his upcoming deluxe look amazing.

Given the fact that a fairly large amount of the missions on the starchart are survival and defense, it's not unusual for me to run into a Saryn, atleast twice a day; and then there are people who take her into every mission (I've seen people using her in Spy missions, rescue missions, etc).

For me personally, it's not about the end screen results, it's that Saryn happens to interfere a lot with the frames I enjoy playing. What can I cast Chaos on, if everything's dead? I have to actually damage enemies using Discharge in order to gain over shields from Capacitance.

As for the farming aspect, Saryn greatly disrupts Khora, Nekros, Hydroid and Atlas's abilities to receive additional loot, due to the fact that Desecrate requires a corpse to loot (Saryn's spore melts the bodies), Pilfering Swarm requires enemies to be killed by Hydroid's tentacles, Atlas needs to freeze enemies using Petrify in order or Ore Gaze to activate (again, who do I cast Ore gaze on, if they're all dead?), and Pilfering Strangle Dome needs the enemies to be caught in Khora's dome, in order to activate.

That is why nuke frames are not welcome in farm parties.

As for void defense, I also dislike playing with a Saryn (or any nuke for that matter), because most of the time, the nukers seem to forget that the enemies need to be corrupted before killing them. In that situation, the blames lies at the feet of the ignorant players, rather than the frame.

Warframe is known for being overpowered, however the powercreep has gotten so far out of hand, that the only ways to correct it is to

A. Rework the game from the ground up. We're fighting enemies from 2014-2015, using gear that's from 2017-2019, almost nothing has been done to improve our combatants, but we the Tenno, have merely gotten stronger over the years. I understand reworking the entire game would be a very long, and expensive process, and the end result might be something that I'd never even recognise, game play wise; it's unrealistic so obviously that solution is off the table.

B. "Fix" the powercreep by introducing enemies the counter our abilities by completely removing them. This is the case with a good percentage of the Orb Vallis and New Jupiter enemies. Of course, now we see people complaining about the constant nullifier spam, the demolyst's and Arbitration drones. Disruption is one of the few gamemodes where CC becomes somewhat viable, but still not good enough to bring it back to life. I think we can expect to see more nullfier-esque enemies in the near future, since that is seemingly the safest way to counter our over powered frames.

Also, it doesn't help that the Devs are sending mixed signals by designing and reworking frames so that they play better with Starchart enemies, but then release weapons (kitguns) or rework other frames, into death machines.

When people will start complaining about Damage Types instead of random frames? Saryn have the holy trinity at her disposal, being highly effective against all enemy types in consequence - Viral (cutting HP in half), Corrosive (stripping armor) and Toxic (bypassing shields). Same goes to Equinox with Slash (bleeding - true damage - that ignores armor and shields) or frames with radiation (confusion, enemie self damage and is the best damage type against armor - the solo definition of unbalance in warframe). Gas (causes a cloud of toxic damage) and Heat (DoT, kinda insignificant, with a CC attached) are in the "good" side too, but somehow weak (or to situational) in comparison.

Now look at the other damage procs: Impact procs makes enemies flinch (yeah, just like that), a lesser version of Blast, that causes a knockdown; Puncture makes affected targets deal 30% less damage for 6secs; Magnetic do something to shields that you will never see use for (or, in case of players, cause major annoyance); Cold and Elec are again some insignificant CC (well, not "crowd", more like single target "control"). And what they cannot do? They can't deal with Armor, with Shields or anything else the game thrown at you - and they don't do damage like the others, having weak/useless/situational effects. Frames with this damage types associated with them (and also Gas and Heat) are underpowered by nature.

And this is only true if all the frames are "elemental" by nature, focused in DPS and all missions in the game are endless for infinite scaling (of the most balanced feature of Warframe: Armor) - what is not the case whatsoever.

A very good point 18 pages into a thread off the rails.

Elements are comically unbalanced, and while that is another thread entirely, does serve as a large portion of why Sayrn is as effective as she is.

Because of the comical inequity between elements (in both damage resistance and status effects) these problems are only made more noticeable.

Glad to see people putting words in my mouth.

 

There is 18 pages and four days of near-constant arguing about Saryn in this thread alone, and many more threads as well. If there genuinely wasn't a problem with Saryn, this wouldn't happen. There has to be at least two sides for there to be a controversy, and rational for issue for it to keep coming up. A fire doesn't burn with no fuel. 

 

This is a game about fighting things. The vast majority and foundation of the game is built around fighting things. If there are things that can make the process trivial, then yes, there is a problem, regardless of how much or how little somebody individually cares about, enjoys or benefits from it. People enjoy hard drugs, people don't care about Global Warming and people benefit from crime. That doesn't mean those things are healthy or good for the person or the society they live in. The same thing applies to overpowered content.

For example, among the things that are directly tied to the combat system is progression and looting - things that Saryn is often cited as being needed for. Thing is, if fighting is trivial because you have a way to effectively disable or instantly kill enemies, if you get loot and progression from fighting, then logically, looting is trivial. And if looting is trivial, the only way for DE to make something valuable or respected is to make it cost a lot of resources or a lot of runs to get. In that way, Saryn (or, more accurately, similar frames and weapons that allow for easy combat). Meaning it's entirely likely that Nukeframes are an answer to a problem they were at least partially responsible in creating. 

Seriously, think about just how many of the game's problems can be attached, at least partially, to issues in the combat system.

(and just wait until you realize eso is as irritating as it is directly because of where frames like saryn have gotten)

Then you've been reading a different thread, or cherry picking, because the sentiment here seems far more split. And it seems like we never don't have a hot topic over the games balance state and in return nukes presence in the game. 

And 5-10 minutes of time consistently wasted is not short, nor should it be a standard at all, you're just completely shirking the issue by saying it won't happen always which is meaningless. All I run into these days are nukes, whether it's a Saryn, a Equinox, Volt, anyone spamming a high range maiming strike build, it's no wonder this is such a hot topic given how recurring it is, and how impactful it is to team paly, in a co-op game. Also just shut it with people being entitled just for wanting to be able to actually play the game they have invested their time and possibly money to enjoy, like how low of a bar are you living at that expecting something that basic is considered being entitled to you?

Public games will always provide higher level players too. What did you expect? It's a pve game anyway and making anything extremely balanced according to new player standards would make solo or good modding impossible. Either play with invited friends, clanmates or others and enjoy the "balanced" pve gameplay or go with public queue, it's totally your choice. Or try solo, which without a good build i do not recommend.

And what do you even mean by "with no effort"?? That guy worked hundreds of hours for their build to work that way. Like other high level players.

When new players complain that veterans are present in their game :DDD Funny
