Pablo acknowledges why better AI alone will not be enough for good difficulty in WF: We need to be nerfed first


Recommended Posts

You have twisted Pablo's words to try and fit ur own agenda. At no point did he say the players need to be nerfed.

Warframe has always been a horde style shooter in which you destroy waves on enemies.

So sick of a very small part of the player base constantly screaming for nerfs in order to try and justify a 'challenge'. Warframe is an easy game, it's a co-op game it's never going to become some challenging game that these players seem to want.

If you want a game were ur abilities are on long cool downs and the weapons and armour ur constantly farming for is nerfed then u might want to take a look at Destiny 2.

Warframe is about having fun with a range of weapons, Warframes and builds and it achieves that

My own agenda? This was Warframe's agenda wayyy back in the day (2013-2015)! The pinnacle was trials or some hard coordination content that required teamwork by using your frame's abilities together! This game has changed dramatically into something else over the years. Tbh the devs don't really listen to feedback anyways who knows! Maybe they will slaughter all the frames or maybe they will continue to make it brain dead looter shooter! Honestly, i'm at the point where DE should do what they want and not what we want to fix their masterpiece. The amount of opinions for the direction of this game are so wide in colors, that it will only tear it apart.

who needs to be nerfed exactly?and why cant we create enemies to counter instead?

Edited a bit more about my post, again this is my opinion as someone who has been here for the whole nine years, invested in countless discords, and a nice clan that is around 5+ years old now (Globally top 10 in hostile mergers). I actually happened to agree with your point that the game should be built around certain enemies etc... However, I stated it needed to be balanced around new AI.

People like this are the problem of the game that want everything nerfed  and unnecessary difficult. No thanks I’d rather have fun and be an all powerful space ninja mowing everything down in site. Then having artificial bullet sponge difficulty.

Well, we just have different opinions. I assure you there are many people like me. An opinion is not a problem, digital extremes does not listen to anybody for feedback imo. What you give is just a grain of salt. My Kuva disruption feedback is a testament to that. You believe what you want to believe and I will believe what I want to believe, especially because I am someone who has a deep love for the success of Warframe.

You can't just magically make challenge on a power fantasy horde shooter like Warframe without changing the core mechanics of the game first

I disagree.

For most frames you can put a resistance. If nova can slow you by 75%, playing on this hard/ultra hard difficulty nova could only slow by 20-25% (50% resistance).

For other frames where they have abilities that deal damage, resistance could be used (saryn, equinox, mesa) but I'm not sure if that would work effectively, perhaps some thinking might be required. Meaning it might take more than a moment to map it all out, I've spoken of challenge for quite awhile (but still enjoy the power fantasy, and yes we can have both) yet when I cannot immediately answer some questions on how I would balance something, I'm told it isn't possible then. 

I think some frames would need a closer inspection on their abilities to see how it would work, for example maybe status effects have a 30-40% less duration. 

These are random ideas, for a more thorough explanation it would be easier to talk with those in DE who would be working on it and bounce ideas back and forth. Because they're more experienced with the system/engine/design and for the most part know what direction they want to take Warframe. 

 

Grendel missions I think are a bad thing in a game like warframe, removing the gear you worked for isn't a great overall balance. It's a form of it, sure; but ultimately makes your grind a moot point, which is one of the big factors of warframe collecting loot to test it out. I think if they're going into the realm of challenge having some enemies react faster wouldn't be a bad idea either, if done correctly. Dodging a bombard missile that can one shot you feels bad-ass, not so much when it can't even hurt your shields enough to notice (but it's still cool).

 

One idea that I've thought of in the past for nuke frames, instead of having them deal raw killing damage, why not (in the ultra hard, mainly) game modes, switch them to a.. support focus?

Hear me out.

Saryn deals corrosive damage with her spores, so instead of that dealing massive damage over time, why not have it strip (or as close as we can get now with revised) armor to help with teammates dealing damage with their abilities/weapons?  

 

I see the trailers and see the teamwork being shown, and that looks very appealing. Then I wonder what interested potential players would think if they seen the (in the cinematic trailer) the mag and volt getting 99% of the kills while poster-boy excalibur gets maybe 5 kills, and the kubrow is glitched out growling at a crate. Just sucks that the level of teamwork shown in the trailers isn't necessary most of the time due to frames being able to handle all content with little to no issues. And while that's nice for diversity, I think it's a waste of potential, due to each frame having unique attributes/traits/quirks yet that not being utilized for difference in mission completion or giving variety in how a mission is handled.

A decent example, vent is blocked when doing sortie spy, loki/ivara/octavia can't get in, but titania (because she's so small) can. Allowing you to use a path that otherwise wouldn't be possible.   Different doors could be disabled on a mission (rubble etc) and tank type frames, rhino, nidus, inaros (etc) could open these pathways for an alternative route. If enemies are a threat, or multiple objectives need to be done, or an extra reward was given for accessing these areas - I think it would be a great thing.  The power fantasy is fun, but the potential for something more is there, and I think it's reachable.   Baby steps (like a quest, similar to grendel) then expand if it's liked is all I can really think of for testing it live.

This is one of the issues. Players get defensive when talking about messing with balance, even when it would be in an isolated area that you could only encounter  if you go in yourself. Grendel balance or Conclave balance isn't in the rest of warframe, just those areas. Test a these ideas in a quest (be it a frame or something else) and see how it plays out, if it doesn't work - you tried - but if it does work, then you might have some new angle to look at going forward. 

 

Edit: and this isn't even touching the parkour aspect. Jupiter's tileset rework greatly expanded and focused on parkour as an element (which was already heavily used, but not really utilized properly or required in some aspects that it could've been for the rest of the starchart).   Dodging or shooting enemies that are flying via jetpack, going from spot to spot, where falling is certain doom (but with ways of getting out, like wall latching).  This is what I would like to see more of, AI or unique /niche enemies being put on a pedestal where they shine (jetpack guys in jupiter tileset).  It doesn't have to be a complete rework of the game, or a complete rework of the AI. 

Utilize what we have already, bring them up a bit in value (enemies) tone us down a bit, without swinging too hard (again, only for this area, like grendel/conclave) and see how it works. Worst thing is, it isn't well received (like grendel, salvage, defection, ... etc.) and players 'pit stop and go' grab what they want and never touch it again.

I think it is important that we look at some aspects of Warframe as the 'Old World Warframe' and the "New World Warframe" Old world consists of items that represent exponential damage multis like old condition overload (which is now the mecha empowered set essentially) and weapons that deal godly amounts of damage that the game is insane. New World being weapons, abilities, and more that are balanced for level 200-400 area or even less (Kuva Seer, and literally almost all the weapons Warframe has to offer besides the few dozen that are stupid strong.).

Good. Let's drop this charade then and let this be the wonderful power fantasy that it is instead of trying to "balance" it and take all the fun out in the process.

This. And while we're at it let's stop pretending that "hurr durr just make it harder" is automatically good game design.

Fully agree, people should just accept the direction of the game instead of trying to turn it into dark souls 4, while basically pissing off the majority of players.

Warframe won't survive if the majority is gone. 

This. If I wanted to play dark souls I'd go play dark souls. If I wanted to play destiny I'd go play destiny.

Great idea guys let DE patch every weapon to max damage and every Warframe to max power and see if you guys who want a "power fantasy" still find the game enjoyable in one week.

Difficult = Dark Souls? Is that the logic you're going with or have you people not played enough games?

That’s why mods are in the game.

No, no, no. Don't you get it? The community has decided in the last pages already, they want Warframe: Cookie Clicker, they want "power fantasy". The Press-4-to-Nuke fantasy, the Kill-Tileset-in-One-Sweep fantasy. They want the foil to sadomasochistic games, the ultimate anti-Fromsoftware game. So why even bother with mods?

i dont know why there is pushback. I think many of us want challenge in addition to what we have already. We arent asking for the entire game to be "darksouls" difficulty. Both playstyles can co-exist in Warframe. Just give those of us that want our gear, mods and skills challenged a space to play. Personally, i dont even want much extra as far as rewards either.

Its almost like some feel that making the game have a hard mode will destroy that concept of power they think they have.

We are just disagreeing then on how we pleasure ourselves in the game. Relaxed power fantasy to progression opinions.

When i see "challenges" like forma a weapon or... "elite weekly" like finishing a capture mission within a whole 1 and a half minute time to spare...i don't wanna see what DE can think of when trying to make this game "challenging".

As much as i'd like some challenges with good rewards, that ain't happening. And if they really tried...oh boy.

I was talking to the original thread creator, unless this is an alt account?

Trials were removed because it wasnt a popular game mode, this proves my point the 'challenging' game mode (which wasnt actually challenging but required a great deal of coordination) was removed from the game.

Another recent example is railjack, when it first came out the player base complained about the steep curve required to go from Earth to Saturn and the from Saturn to the veil. Enemies being too tanky and doing too much dmg was also a complaint and as a result the game mode wasnt well received. 

After the recent updates the game mode is now easier to pick up and get into and as a result more players are playing railjack now.

Honestly when it comes to the difficultly and the game play of warframe I’m on the fence of leaving the game the way it is and not changing the difficulty. Why change  things that arnt broken and work perfectly fine. I personally don’t like seeing all these nerfs and buffs to things. Just leave it how it is.Why fix things that aren’t broken. That’s my two cents.
