Celebrate the Year of the Ox


Recommended Posts

I don't think the suspicions regarding tencent in here are reasonable at all. Speculation is fair but its not like bundles have ever been a great deal no matter what.

Ive bought a lot of the deluxe bundles for a single item, its a shame its structured that way but its always possible I'll appreciate having the other items at a later time, around 200 plat its still a decent deal. I also got that Kuva Lich bundle, just for the palettes, that bundle is full of garbage besides that, but I really love muted colors and use them all a whole lot, hard to regret it in the end. I think the Deimos bundles were also especially bad, i mean, a whip skin? that's truly bizarre. If I could have just bought the pistol and shotgun skins from that it would be great.

Point is, Bundles are mostly a bad deal.

I wouldn't mind buying some cats for regular plat prices as decorations. The skins are for an odd collection of items, nice to have I guess, but to go out of your way for them at these prices is odd, Acceltra and Pyrana already look amazing, who uses machetes anyways? I've gone too far into the game to need affinity boosters or credit boosters. Id basically be paying 700 plat for 3 cat decorations. its not hard for me to put the idea of owning them out of my head, but it is a shame how this is set up.

Is there a reason these bundles are filled with Starchart rewards that tip the price over a majority of Warframe bundles? Like I feel like you could have cut all the filler out and sold this at one bundle price that would have cost ~450 Platinum. It's kind of funny that the Sands of Inaros Bundle or the Gauss Collection cost roughly the same and you get a Syandana, 2 boosters, multiple crafted/potatoed weapons, and a built Warframe with their alternate helmet for roughly the same price as 3 decorations and 5 skins with a bunch of filler.

Likewise, it would be cool if lucky Kavat decorations could be purchased separately for decorators.

EDIT: I just realized the big bundle sells Kuva and Riven Mods directly for Platinum :facepalm:.

"We won't change under tencent"

Now we have this and a lot of similar looking stuff going on.

I never imagined Warframe would pass into Pay 2 Win territory until now.

To be honest it's not Pay to Win because you don't get to compete with other players with the RNG stuff you buy.

But I agree with you regarding the "gambling temptation" you will be exposed to by having kuva for plat in spite of game activities that consume time instead.
On the other hand, I'm one of those that sometimes "saves time" buying stuff from other players that spent their time, specially when there's too much RNG involved and little time in my part to seek the reward of accomplishment.

(I don't trade rivens at all or use them in the majority time of my gameplay - unless of course i get one that i like)

I have spent about 1000 euros in this game since I started playing it. Honestly I don't regret a single cent. One thing that I enjoy about Bugframe cosmetics is you get what you pay for, that is an honest trade.


We will see where it goes next :) we all love the game to a certain extent. When it starts making you miserable just leave and move on!

While we can celebrate the honest Ox all year long, you must act quickly Tenno! Bundles will only be available for purchase until March 5 at 2 p.m. ET.

Any word about the Riven mods sold though? Mostly wondering how come it says Melee if it's a zaw, and some people claimed they unveiled a Kitgun from their rifle one! 

I feel like this should be addressed for the players who purchased the bundle, or if it's just worded wrong, it should be corrected so everyone knows what they are paying for.

Edit: I might have found the answer as to why Kitgun rivens are being unveiled out of the Rifle one. Happens because you can now craft primary kitguns which count as "rifle". Not 100% sure though, bumped into this in a thread in General Discussions. 

Here's the thread: https://forums.warframe.com/topic/1249719-is-riven-unveiling-bugged/

Edit2: Read the comments below, this is NOT the answer.

Reason is Capitalism i think... also for me look like a wast to use all that plat for "credit, endo etc..."

There was a reply on twitter today where player unveiled a Catchmoon riven out of this. Catchmoon is a shotgun type so it absolutely couldn't be under a Rifle riven anyway. 

If these were the alert rewards I would have just assumed a bug and shrugged it off. But they sold these rivens for plat and it is not ok to misadvertise like that

As I don't use twitter, I can only rely on what people say on the forums. I did not see someone unveiled a Catchmoon, so I just assumed by reading the other thread that they mixed Kitguns into rifles. Thank you however for posting it here, so until it's fixed players can see what they could potentially get out of it. 

But yeah, considering Catchmoon is a shotgun then it still needs to be addressed. Doesn't look like anything has been officially said about it yet.

I was trying to find any info so I checked official twitter just in case. And that Catchmoon riven shows that something is definitely not working correctly here

 

PS And even if they did mix the kitgun rivens into rifle rivens a heads up would be nice because kitguns have terrible dispo and are mostly a waste of mod space. Rifle riven category really doesn't need more 'trash' added

Agreed, I added a second edit to my first post to warn people that what has been said in the thread I linked was not the answer, and that they should read the rest of the comments below. 

We can only hope that today someone will notice it and fix it.

These bundles are underhanded cash-grabs. Since when did DE ever sell Kuva and Rivens in the market for plat? Will you be bringing back the randomised mod bundles and colour dispensers in the future? The only things (subjectively) interesting are the Lucky Kavats, and they aren't worth the bundle price. Further, you can only buy the White Lucky Kavat more than once if you wanted to actually decorate your Orbiter or Dojo with more than just three Lucky Kavat statues. Why wouldn't you just bundle the Lucky Kavats together for us to buy? The Lucky Kavats by themselves would have probably sold a small mint because they're cute and they'd feel more "worth" together than jammed with items many aren't going to care for. I'm sure there are Dojo decorators who would have dropped plenty of plat for just the Lucky Kavats if they had been made available as a separate bundle purchase. I know I would have absolutely been tempted to buy several Lucky Kavats. With the current bundle and plat costs on PS4, I'm not dropping $20 for one Lucky Kavat.

As someone already mentioned, why would you host limited alerts meant for everyone on a quest-locked location?

I really don't understand DE's choices for this event, they seem exceptionally bizarre this time around.

IANAL, but those Rivens could be considered lootboxes in the eyes of certain EU gambling laws (see e.g. https://kansspelautoriteit.nl/english/loot-boxes/). On their own not an issue, until you can buy them (for real world money) and sell the resulting items. The extra steps of "one per account" and using platinum (which can also be obtained without real world money) for the purchase might be enough to leave you in the clear, but that'd be something for the lawyers to figure out.

Why each glyph is obtainable for only one day? I wanted the hamster glyph but I wasn't able to get home in time due to my workplace. This is so painful DE...

Is Melee Riven Mod supposed to be a Zaw riven mod? 

Also, why does the Rifle riven mod unveil into a Tombfinger one? Kitgun rivens were a separate category last time I checked

Got a Vermisplicer from my Rifle Riven mod. You're not alone!

Wow... that's what I'm scared of.
I still can't play the Casino Content from GTA Online due to gambling restrictions. One of these days Men From The Law will cut my access to Bugframe...

That's sad... specially now that we have wings and we are so close to get unicorns and goblin pets (for a fair amount of plat).

Yeah, my internet was out from Monday to late yesterday, that I could tell. Most of the time we didn't have power.

This has been a bad week for Texas. (Only 2 more nights with temperatures in the 20s.)

I have to say I’m very disappointed that these alerts were only available for one day each, and in the middle of the week too. My friend probably would have liked to have done them but she has simply been way too busy with school work and won’t have free time until the weekend. Kinda sucks for people like her that the window of time is so unnecessarily small. In the future, please consider making alerts like this last for more than just a single day.

You must understand their new owner appeasement politics enforced to every company in reach of the CCP ;P
