Its worrying because I see a MR 22 and he spent less time than me

All depends oh how you play and cheese everything in game or if others user real money for play. If you invest any kind of money for play you will progress x10 quicker than others who play totally free. But in the end you can get the same results free or with money.

just means they collect and master equipment efficiently. that's all. 

 

it is a huge bonus since it adds quite a bit to your maximum standing, traces, loadouts, etc. and it also makes your weapons start higher level so you can actually attach mods at r0. that last one is a huge perk. around mr23-ish i noticed i didn't get anxiety anymore when i forma or get a new weapon to rank up lul

Time doesn't really equal MR, he could have an account that was transferred to console (no idea how the time played transfers over) or just had the knowhow from playing on PC prior.

Heck I reached max MR (at the time 28) in under a year on PC just from all the knowhow from my console days.

I spent about 2 years at MR9 because I simply enjoyed the gear I was playing with. One of my clan mates was MR23-24 and whenever we played together it was me picking him up off the floor. It took a weapon that caught my eye to finally force me to rank up.

Well MR only shows how many of the weapons and warframes that you have/have used. Being a low MR at that many hours just means that either you played when there was a smaller volume of available items when you got the bulk of your time, or you just prefer to use the items that you already have. I'm an MR 27 with just under 600 in-game hours, but I have been pretty efficient about my affinity (bringing underleveled stuff into missions and almost never having no weapons/warframes waiting to be levelled), so that's how I got MR so fast. Also, my friend that got me into the game had a basically completed dojo.

At the rate that I am going, I will almost definitely reach MR 28 before I have played for one calendar year. But that doesn't mean that I am better at the game than you. I have killed a grand total of 12ish Eidolons and have only done one Kuva siphon mission. Mastering mechanics takes longer than making numbers go up.

TL,DR: MR doesn't say anything about your abilities.

Its cool mate. MR isn't as inconsequential as people say it is. In fact it can be a great help, especially with the new MR 30 rewards.
But one think doesn't equate to the other. I know people who "main" warframes, so they have a lot of time ingame, and low MR. Others burn through gear and frames for MR and so have higher MR in less time.

None of those is indicator of proficiency or skill, just play style.
Do your thing, and don't worry too much.

Yes, because that's all there is to it. There's no effort put into unlocking all the stuff before hand, right?

Are you having fun? If so, then it doesn't  matter.

i'd have to agree w this

 

although just so you know the game gets funner-er when you have loads of weapons, mods, and equipment. it's great having options for playing (keeps the game interesting). also increased daily limits are the bees knees imo :D

i have way more fun now then when i was below mr 20 but hey that's just me

That only starts to matter at the high 28-30 ranks, and the more items that get added in to the game, the less it matters to max out all the useless amps, archwing weapons and k-drives. Every patch makes those items less and less mandatory to acquire to reach 30.

You still need to unlock whatever you're leveling. You're not going anywhere near 30 without having all the prime and normal warframes (or close enough), for example.
Sure in time that changes, but so does the goal post. When i started playing, a MR 20 was a pretty high MR person. Now its more middle of the road than anything, in fact it takes more Affinity to go from 20-30 than from 1-20.
And when people start showing up with Legendary Ranks, that'll be the continuation of the same thing. MR matters a bit, because unlike other games where the goalpost is fixed, but the ways to obtain it increase, in warframe they move the goalpost with the new ways of unlocking it. So being at the top of MR does take some effort.
Up to 20, its somewhat easier, yes, but still takes some effort.

except Pay 2 Win doesn't exist. Buying stuff from Market, Prime Access or Prime Vault- even the packs like the Initiate Pack; don't instantly pow! gifted Mastery. You still have to move your lazy backside and Rank it to 30 if you want Mastery.

Paying someone to play for you is actually a bannable offense and costs you the entire account I hope you realise that
