Nightwave: Intermission II

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of complains about current nightwave. Especially rewards. "We already have them" - they say. This how I see it. How many people complited 1wave, 1interm, 2wave? Not so many. A lot of players would like to get rewards offered now. 

It’s not “we already have them”. It’s “we are being forced to get a 2nd set and there are actually negatives for getting another”

They are treated as a new item, taking up a slot , that you will always have to scroll through since there is no way to get rid of them.  And if we aren’t vocal Now and get it fixed Now it is only going to get worse we when they repeat again, with us having x3,x5,x10, etc.

No one is complaining that they did not want other people to get these rewards anymore.

Though some are complaining about having to level the rank while getting basically no reward.

Fewer people would be complaining, if these empty rank rewards were replaced with creds and then offered in shop to be purchased for the same amount of creds.

Various games bring back old event cosmetics all the time (e.g. Diablo and Monster Hunter World).  There is nothing wrong with allowing new players to catch-up.  The previous Intermission had 15 ranks, this one has 30 with about 22 rewards for those who completed the previous one.  Would I like "new" rewards?  Sure... but this is just fine.

For those complaining about getting duplicates, just add a way to sell for Nora credits during Intermission 2, and then for regular credits once it concludes.

This nightwave intermission is pathetic. DE is already forgetting about this feature, I guess they didn't have the retention stats that they wanted and they are now not even bothering maintaining the feature.

If that's the case I'd like them to say it upfront, not just shove into the players a repeated season, hiding a sought after reward in rank 29 behind 28 ranks of garbage.

I'm really disappointed. I'm heavily considering just ignoring the intermission.

Pretty much this, seeing a near-copy of Nightwave 1 and mostly the same rewards does feel like a slap to the face. Even missing Eidolon ephemera last time & even considering aura/umbra forma, I feel like the game is telling me "just making sure you know nothing is happening, check back when there's new content or grind these tasks for 2 weeks to get a forma"

"Nora's all about incentivizing" has reached peak irony. Ouch, that's aight Nora, I'll play somethin' else, 🎵Wake me up when Nightwave ends

I have to agree with everyone here, this seems like DE already gave up especially since it's just a mirror image of the very first nightwave event sans some of the "rewards".  Why wasn't the Light of Arlo in the last event by the way DE?  That seems like a very odd omission on your part, after all it was the entire thing surrounding Arlo and his followers right?  This just kinda shows that DE gave up after the 1st one, there is clearly no direction here, they make this intermission basically the 1st with a max rank of 30 rather then what the last intermission was (I can't remember) then they just have all of the xp numbers stay the same as if it was a normal event as opposed to  the intermission which should give you higher standing but is over all shorter.

I agree with everyone, why are the players who've already done this stuff being rewarded with things that we already have?  Why is the stuff that we could use (arua forma, Umbra forma and so on) so far from the front?  Why not leave that stuff in the very first few rewards?  Then whoever wants the stuff from the 1st event can grind that out while the rest of us can just ignore it?  Oh right because you need those numbers to stay up to validate your choice.

Ayatan Anasa Sculpture

really now?!?

isn't it enough to torture us with the 'pineapple' reward when doing sorties? couldn't you at least create a new ayatan as a reward? but sure, let me have pinapple no. 135 in my storeroom... at least they are stacked now.

Universal Nightwave credits when? I still do not see why we have a different currency every nightwave. Rewards are now being recycled, surely the currency should just be the same so people can spend at their own leisure / pace.

Can you please also drop the Hydrolist kill from this? In order to successfully complete that bounty, a player needs to have quite a bit of progression to do it. I know there are "teams" somewhere "out there" in that vague unknown cetus server ready to help. But the average player is not geared up enough to do enough damage, and to survive the onslaught. I've been playing for over a year, and am still not geared up enough for this.

I'm personally doing Hydrolists in public squads. Usually there's enough damage in the squad to do 1x3. Just get a high-damage weapon built for Radiation and grab a bounty from Konzu.

  • Kuva is now always available in Nora’s Offerings

You’ll need to earn Intermission II Creds to buy items from Nora’s Offerings! Creds from the first Intermission and the first two Series can be sold for 5,000 credits apiece if you have any lingering in your Inventory.

Nightwave: Intermission II will only be available for a limited time. Good luck, Dreamers.

Cool to see the return of items peoples don't have, but, for peoples who already haves (like me) the 8 things in Red, do we'll have other things in place of ? like NW Creds maybe ? i hope so :cool:

I'd love to have the possibility to convert old NW Creds we have for have new ones (when you have a lot of millions of Credits and doing all acts as possible, you know, trade the last NW Creds for Credits...)

I love the changes about the acts, the Kuva each week (finally !!!) and 30+30 Ranks, so thank you, some great changes :thumbup:and thank you again for the old weekly acts we can do after, this has been really usefull for me for the season 2 for reach 60 ranks after not really plays during 2 weeks (because, you know, after 5500h, i'm waiting new contents each time :smile:)

sorry but I am max wolf history by nightwave ,now i'm getting the same rewards in intermission , wouldn't it be better an option to swap as rewards for credits ,something like giving an option to choose another line of rewards, as all rewards earned don't double as you pass the level is kind of useless and unrewarding for those who have done the previous story

Judging by a recent Reddit post, you just get a duplicate, no auto-compensation for already receiving the emote from Season 1:

I don't understand why DE would launch this with almost 1/3rd return cosmetic rewards without a mechanic that would replace the cosmetic duplicate for something we could actually use, ie: NW creds or some other reward.

I would like to petition that Day Trader's difficulty be reduced by removing the "enemy cannot score a single point" requirement.

I play primarily solo (and usually for short bursts of time) and doing PUGs in The Index I find most teams leave after one or two rotations. In order to prevent the enemy from scoring, especially in round 3, I have only found success while playing as a duration Limbo. In this setting I find it equally necessary and boring to play Limbo and camp the objective. For me the price of failure is the time investment and the single point margin for error is razor thin and I find it frustrating that I often have to choose attempting the last wave with bots or having leave a wave early.

The Goldilocks setup would be to PUG to the third wave with a team that stays and understands the mechanics of stacking investments before turn in (I turn in if the clock is low otherwise wait until +8), and then I rely on my team to score while I shoulder the responsibility/blame for any scenario that results in a single enemy point being scored.

As it stands I have stopped doing Day Trader and ended up ignoring it for all of Emissary.

Use Khora. The thing becomes a cakewalk, and you can do it solo.

Give a range / duration / efficiency Limbo build a try if you haven't. Camping a Cataclysm with Statsis on the enemy bank makes preventing enemy scores a breeze, even in solo. But since Limbo has low survivability you need to stay in the Rift. The Specters aren't completely useless, they'll bank their points, and if they get downed the Brokers will bring the points to you. Take them out, make sure your Cata and Stasis is fresh, then grab the points and bank them. Three rounds of Low Risk goes by pretty fast.
