This is how I feel lol.

I can only speak for me, but I guess part of why I feel so blase about the whole thing is because I heard pretty much all the same doomsday comments when they sold to Leyou Holdings in the first place. 

The doomsday predictions didn't come through. Global Warframe didn't become an extension of the Chinese Communist Party or a complete Pay to Win nightmare that causes F2P players to leave in droves. It continued on, occasionally stumbling, but for the most part continuing to grow and add new content, making most of same mistakes, some to a larger or smaller degree, since well before Leyou Holdings was a thing. I don't expect anything major to change this time either.

Difference is Leyou was  Hong Kong company. Tencent is basically a branch of the CCP.

What happens if Tencent touch DE? From what I know that Tencent already got their hands off against LoL, Epic's games and Path of Exiles.

Source? I've only ever seen this reported in one place, and noticeably it was not an official one. Until an official announcement (or so many sources other than that one that the writing's clearly on the wall), I'm going to hold an air of skepticism.

Leyou is Hongkong based company but the named is spelt in Mandarin way, the founder is Chinese mainlander. So basically it's CCP related.

All the names from Leyou founders are Chinese Mandarin Pinyin:

Mr. Xu Yiran (Chairman and Chief Executive Officer)
Mr. Li Yang (Deputy Chairman)
Dr. Alan Chen (Chief Operating Officer)
Mr. Gu Zhenghao
Mr. Cao Bo

Not playing Devils Advocate here or anything but when Tencent bought Grinding Gear Games (Path of Exile)  there was a HUGE improvement to little QOL features that players had been asking for since beta release. While the head honchos at the original GGG still maintain almost complete control over development. And before anyone brings it up, the loot boxes and all the MTX were already being pushed hard before the purchase. I gotta agree with DancingJoker, and I dont think they are quite the evil empire everyone thinks it is.

This could be good for warframe, I don't know why people are upset... this game needs dedicated servers so desperately, for such things as cross save, cross play, no host immigration, DE needs more funding, I dunno about you guys, but this looks good news to me... I hope DE benefit from tencent the most
