So Steve teased Loot boxes multiple times in devstreams..

Recommended Posts

The problem with pre-orders is that just as you announce them, the world markets start having unexplained shortages of canvas...

There's nothing wrong with loot boxes if done correctly. 

- You can't buy them with money.

- They don't contain items you can't get anywhere else.

- There's a cap on how many you can get per day. 

- Have them drop meaningful items, not common resources that don't matter.

Follow those rules and they'd be a welcome addition to the game.

Never, he's mocking other cruddy microtransaction mechanics. 

As evidenced by the fact that he also said something bout selling developer bath water, he's a lowkey memelord

THAT. WAS. A. JOKE. Hint: SARCASM.

Still amazed at people taking Steve's bashing at other games/company like it's real.

But if they did that then theres no reason to add loot boxes....

Do it the Blizzard way. Dismantle Prime Access into frames and skins and put these into loot boxes as rare rewards. Don't sell prime access or skins directly anymore so that people will need to buy lots of loot boxes to get the skin or frame they want.

They'll be on a high-level zone of Railjack. It'll be a heavily fortified space deposit of the greedy Corpus, and its huge name - Earnings Association - stamped on the entrance. After all that effort you'll have a lootbox:

  • 30% Chance at a golden mod, any from the game except Primed Chamber.
  • 20% Chance for a random non-radiant relic.
  • 0.05% Chance at 5k Kuva.
  • 0.01% Chance at a Clem blueprint.
  • 0.01% Chance at a Prodman Poster.

Loot boxes are the sign of a diseased game developer. It's just a cash grab attempt by exploiting human psychology.

Don't do it, DE. Treat us like you respect us, not like we're herds of livestock to be milked of all our cash.

edit: 😓 well, I hope it was just sarcasm

You could put stuff like high amounts of  Kuva, Endo and such in there 😛

me want!!!

This would be a giant "F NO". Keep that trash out of warframe. You want purchasable bad luck go play NBA2K20.

They're called void relics

Beat me to it.  If One wants to be really pedantic about it, every single enemy from the Stalker to the lowly lancer is a "loot box."

But I'm not a snob or angsty teen, so let's stick to the popular definition going forward, m'kay?

Let's make a class section to remove warframe from the games category and put it into the casino one. It's only appropriate for the amount of gambling involved 😄

It's not the same. As far as I know, DE doesn't sell relic packs and the relic packs aren't exclusively the only way to get loot compared to Overwatch (which rewards cosmetics rather than loot). Last time I played Overwatch, loot boxes were the only way to earn specific cosmetics. You couldn't hop on Overwatch Market and pay plat for a specific skin or emote... So if you really wanted that skin? You could easily spend $20-$40 buying loot boxes to for a random chance to earn that very specific skin or emote. Yeah, they're just cosmetics... but I am very disappointed by my childhood gaming company Blizzard.

But you know what? DE does something more generous by selling cosmetics. You can just hop on Warframe's market and get that cosmetic or skin. You don't need to spend money on several chances to get them. And relics are free and very easy to earn in-game and can also be traded. Contrast with Overwatch? You must be rated as a nice player and level up to earn loot boxes. This is much more time consuming than a 5 minute reward rotation on an endless mission, or a 1 minute run on Ukko or any other Void node.

This is gonna be in every game in the next decade or so. The suits and the corporations run us. We're the cattle. 

 

I can play this game without them
