Plague star ? Formas removed?


Recommended Posts

All I can recall is the argument from someone here that Plague Star is actually not good for acquiring Forma, and that it is more time efficient to grind for Prime bits, sell them for plat, and buy Forma. Which, uh. Huh. Sure buddy.


Anyway, that's going to be a delicious source of outrage, but don't worry, remember you can always grind for bits, then sell those bits for plat.

One of the reasons for the event is because it provides forms ... other than that the event dies and events is the weak point of the warframe. I remember that I didn't manage to get the union up to the maximum and bought everything properly ... I bought about 150 ... and today I'm under 50 .... the speed with which weapons and warframes come out is high. And I will no longer be able to experiment at the speed I wanted. All my platinum earned was initially from buying platinum in DE itself when I started ... I helped DE with something around 250 dollars .... apparently now they want to put the knife in our throat ... maybe I even have to look for other games.

I can't remember that Rebecca said anything about removing Forma from Plague Star, here's roughly what was said:

 

Chat: "Plague Star pls."

Reb: "Not this year, but some rewards will become available somewhere else."

Chat: "We want the Formas"

Reb: "Oh."

 

Edit: Found the specific part in the video, will add more text to the post asap.

 

Edit 2:

Watch 14:40 - 16:00 for the relevant parts.

Not all rewards from Plague Star "Just some"

 

15:28

Pablo quickly glances over the chat

Pablo: "I see something... free formas? Why would we-"

Reb cuts him off

Reb: "Oh because Plague Star gave built Forma"

Pablo now remembers that Plague Star gave built Forma, the previous statement was NOT a confirmation about removing Forma from Plague Star.

Pablo: "Oh! Right, right."

 

15:35

Reb: "That is not what I'm refering to"

(Built Forma are not part of the "Just some" rewards that will return later this year from something that is not plague star)

Reb: "...but I will take that into consideration... at the time. I will consider it. But it's a bit more thematic."

 

The misunderstanding likely comes from the short part of Pablo forgetting about the built Forma being a reward of Plague Star.

Ah... so DE once again failed to read their playerbase and even Reb honestly didn't realize why the event was popular. 

Le sigh.

What I took away from that is no plague star this year, but there's something going to happen on deimos and it will have the plague zaw parts.

And I'm kinda happy no plague star cause it was so boring, same mission over and over with no variation. To me it's one of the worst grinds in the game. Last year I played just to get back up bps of the zaw part and that's it as i couldn't bear it.

I'm more surprised they took this long to pull them. And it honestly seems like this will fix more problems than removing them could create.

what problems is it going to fix?

It is these drastic attitudes that DE takes that drives players away ... the event was only interesting because of the shapes ... what are they going to put in place then? Useless cosmetics?

If they do pull the other rewards out, specifically the plague zaw parts, then new players can stop worrying about when those become available. Same for players that just want to experiment with said parts. Regardless of if the event will return at all or not without the Forma players can freely ignore it and not have to worry or wonder as to when it'll return just as we can with Thermia Fractures. And without them there won't be remotely as much FOMO regarding the event.

While not having it as a source of Forma isn't that bad in the first place as getting a stockpile of them isn't that hard to begin with. So it's really just removing a lot of headache and concerns over a lot of ifs and whens while we're not losing much in the process.

I think there's opportunity for them to reintroduce a forma farm with a different event, Plague Star was a tired out boring event that I hope they discontinue.

I would be in favour of a new event that supported varitation in gameplay, that would try something new, and experiment a little, beyond the usual kill, defend, and escort. Maybe have a race, or test players parkour abilities, tell them to problem solve or figure out a puzzle.

Remove a event dont sound smart to me...a bad move. Warframe dont have events and you ask to remove?

 

DE removed alerts and put nw trash in our troat? This is/was a very bad move....i can see alot people rage quit.
