The Forum Polls: Railjack and Liches

Recommended Posts

At the end of 2019, DE asked players to fill out some polls so that they could get some feedback from the community in form of statistics.

As much as that can be helpful, the questions asked weren`t indicative of what the community really wanted to say. And seeing as I am quite fond of looking at statistics and saying "oh interesting", I`m making a collection of Polls that go over Liches and Railjack in a much deeper way, in hope that, with the participation of the reader (you), we`re able to give a deeper look into what the community wants as a collective to DE.

This ended up being quite a long list, I apologise, the more I thought about these topics the more things I wanted to include, sorry about that.

I've done them all. Noticed not a lot of them though. Still, please share your results with the forums once they're done.

Some of my thoughts in the spoiler.

Don't think it's necessarily an issue in and of itself, but the rest of Railjack should offer a bit more intrinsics so there's less of a Focus situation - 'standard' gameplay gives barely anything, you need an active farming method to get anywhere.

Sorry, I couldn't hear you over me shredding enemies.

It's a fully 3D environment with vast distances, the chance you'll cover the same spot twice is far too small.

- Is a tutorial, or something to the likes of such, needed for Railjack The entire game?

FTFY. I'm not asking for hand-holding, but at least some in-game idea about how everything works. For railjack, an introductory tour would be nice. Plus it would give names to all the rooms, helping communication.

More missions! More different enemies! Different spread of Raijack/Archwing/Away! Make Railjack missions the most diverse in the game! Mission, activity and gameplay diversity is a good thing, it helps keep things fresh.

No longer actively negative and broken, and I might consider hunting more in the future, but it's still not good

The system is fine, it just needs more diversity. A lot more diversity.

I feel like with more types of liches, could come divisions in what liches use what weapons, and then give players influence in what type of lich will appear - and thus the weapon pool. For example, a more active, in-your-face lich would have more combat-focused weapons like the Chakkhhur or the Tonkor, but a commander who spends more time on the back line would only really want a pistol for self-defence.

The system isn't necessarily a problem in isolation IMO, it's the fact that it IS isolated. Current murmur farming feels like a part of a larger system, honestly.

2 hours ago, Lightel03 said:

The whole game could use an AI pass, honestly.

I understand why they didn't with this set of changes (to help their feedback, since people reeaaaallly don't like Liches and needed convincing) but down the line this should absolutely be a thing. As soon as the second set of changes rolls along, people are bound to be more willing to try out new changes.

2 hours ago, Lightel03 said:

I alluded to this, but yes. More overall strategies such as a lich that likes fighting themselves and isn't focused on territory, a cowardly lich who takes the 'stay as far away as possible from the only thing that can kill them' approach to the immortal snail problem (us being the snail) or so on and so forth. Maybe even one that teams up with the Stalker or a syndicate opposed to yours, and gets back up from them.
