not even a 4th July event or special

Recommended Posts

instead of a troll type question as what warframe needs a buff the most < I would state my disappointment in no event or special  for the 4th of July

Yes, how dare a Canadian company not celebrate an American Holiday.

Was there even a Canada Day special? I don't think there was...

Especially with Chinese investors and others involved.

Not to mention the utter drama from the first and last time they did a 4th of July thing.

I hope that is not why. How could people be happier when DE doing less?

I wonder if current events may have had an affect on celebrating America?

What was the drama about, though? I'm guessing something political?

As someone not from America, I would rather not have a 4th July event. There is no meaning to it. It’s better to stick to more “universal” things.

How is an event for a national holiday for a different country doing more for the game?  

Also, if this were a normal year I could see small events but with everything going on and the bulk of their staff working from home, is it reasonable to expect events like OP is wanting?

Yeah.  Pretty much "If you celebrate American holidays, why aren't you celebrating xyz holidays as well?"  "I want a color pallet for abc too" only, a lot meaner and all over the Forums.

Doesn't really make sense to have a 4th of July day. It is not an American's game. It's made by Canadian developers and played by players all over the world. If you are gonna have a 4th of July u need to have a day for every country that has Warframe players.

While I admit that I stick with the game and DE because of how moral and ethical they manage their company, jumping into the choppy waters of picking and choosing what to support/honor rarely ends well. 

It would be nice if DE just set up seasonal events with no specific ties that granted items that could be used for player made specific events. Just, give us the tools to make our own 4th of July or Bastille Day or whatever.  DE doesn't need to slap their own stamp on it.

Just make it so generic and non-specific that nobody could be offended or perplexed... but at the same time, absolutely hilarious how generic it would be!

Still, I'm very surprised DE does not do Canada Day events. It would not bother/surprise me as an American that a Canadian company hold a Canada Day event in their own game!

Little surprised they don't either, honestly.

Another lost opportunity for DE to share Canadian culture with the rest of the world. DE has truly deprived us... did they put the unusual Newfoundland and Labrador accents into Fortuna? No... they put possibly fake British accents in Fortuna. Or what about Quebec French (with subtitles)? First Nation languages? I don't know... Could be very cool if they put a Canadian touch in some of their content to make it distinct, unique and maybe even educational.

ngl, they wasted a lot of chances to present alternative story telling.  Granted, they probably didn't set out with that in mind.  If I had the money I'd see about getting people together to redo some lines and voices just to see how they'd do with regional accents and such.

Did you check the market to see if the American colour picker was back for 1 credit in the market? That's all they've ever done for the fourth of July which is more than has ever been done for Canada day.

Looking at the voice actors in Warframe Wiki... Eudico and Little Duck are apparently the real deal. They're really British! Shows what I know about British accents.
