Railjack should get fixed, sure...

Let's have this discussion again for the hundredth time, because it's sooo fun.

The balance of the game is off.
As a result, some items are particularly worse than they should be.
If you happened to have gotten into the game for those items, then you're up the creek.

Open worlds are supposed to be open to fun and exploration, with warframe's weapons and frames.
It is not meeting that standard, due to some things being just marginally out of balance.
Players like myself, don't find that content fun.

Meta players aren't concerned with having a fun time exploring, because their fun is in pushing the game's limits.
I'm not here to push the limits, I'm here to fish, mine, explore, k-drive in an open world that advertises that experience.
The experience is not in line with the advertising, because you need to employ meta strategies in order to survive, due to lack of balance.

If the harder levels demand that, that is fine as there are at least 8 more levels of difficulty above that can narrow further and further into that.
For players who enjoy that experience of using a formulaic meta, they can do that.
For players who want a more casual experience, they cannot enjoy themselves in the low levels, because it still requires a formulaic meta, due to imbalance.

If you should bring the same gear to rank 1 that you should bring to vox 4, then the fundamental balance is off.

But what you're saying on this thread is that you are intentionally taking a poor choice of gear, gear that will definitely require a greater effort, and a change in tactics on your part

Why are weapons and frames that you can invest so much in, such poor choices? Because the content wasn't made with enough of the game's options in mind.

I would like if that opened up a bit. You think that makes me an A******? Good for you for being an elitist meta player. Get blocked, boomer.

Because screwdrivers are not the same as hammers, Karen. 

You can easily use a hammer to drive a screw into wood, but you will have done a piss poor job of it. Those who take their time to consider the situation would go back to the toolbox and pick one of the screwdrivers instead. Or lacking that, they'd get a knife, or even a coin. Hell someone who is creative might melt a piece of plastic and press it to the screw until it cools, and then use it effectively for the job. Some might look at it and keep the hammer but swap a nail for the screw and be just fine. 

But you Karen? You're going to sit there banging away on that screw with your little hammer and demanding to speak to the manager, to find out why they didn't provide hammers that would be good at driving screws?

Good luck with that.

I'd take super hard, tanky, challenging mobs over endless rng walls any day.

Looking at you and your inability to come up with well balanced content Steve!

The RNG walls don't bother me as much, since I intend to be around for a long time. But whether Super hard tanky units, or mountains of RNG, either starts to restrict what players are meant to engage with the content. Ultimately, as players, we're going to turn away from content that just flatly doesn't appeal to our style. If you don't enjoy this or that, you just won't play it... unless you super duper feel you need the reward for whatever reason. I'm more of the mind that, if the reward wasn't fun to get, then it's not something I need to support.

In the case of the Open worlds, I don't need to take on Profit Orb. It would require I use tactics that just don't appeal to me as a player. The experience I want is more laid back, more about CC, movement, melee combos I enjoy using... and if I get funneled into some specific role I don't like, then it's not an experience I want to play. We play videogames to have fun, right? So if it's not fun... why even play it? There has to be a good mix of options that everyone likes.. be it needing to game the mechanics through min-maxing, or wanting to be all Ninja Turtles about it for a goof. I'm willing to give up the top rewards to not have to be all try-hard about it. My grief with open world is, The whole way down, you need to do that. That's where it misses the mark. Top bounties and Vox Solaris? By all means, make it so hard only a portion of players can get into it. As for the rest? Decrease the drop chances if you have to, but make it accessible to people who don't want their game to feel like a rat race of conformity.
