Road to The New War Bonus Weekends

Thanks, but what about double resource weekends? If I'm not wrong, I believe March 2020 was the last one we had. Please correct if I am wrong though. 

Granted affinity weekend is nice for the Tenet weapons now, but still.

Especially if this is all about "Suit up each weekend with your friends, Clan, or even solo". All of which need resources. Whether it be clans for research, pigments, or decorations. Friends and new players for crafting said new items to level up.

I've been waiting for this booster for so long, so straight faced right now. I need kuva...

So, the New War isn't coming until the END of Oct?, Near Nov-Dec?.

 

Christ, this is last last year all over again, and year before that, NEVER COMMIT, if you can't even release something 

Toss in 1st 24hr bugs, glitches, and other issues that happens after content drops, and yeah. Not to mention any potential frame/wep ner..., err, adjustments that DE will add later because of reasons.. Anyone wanna post some Vegas odds on loot/drop tables? Just saying.

I'd rather have a good update than rushed quest. If you watched the 2021 Tennocon, it was obvious that the New War will release by the end of the year, so November/December was a given. The more time they take the better, this should blow our minds.

Yet people said this last year and the year before that. This no longer holds any weight.

Look out Railjack turned out, it was delayed for quite some time and when it did come out, it was a flop, a mess. Same goes for Archwing and it took years for DE to finally realize that their updates where terrible, only because players left and where no longer giveing money (the only thing), let's not forget about the "The Vacuum Within" update, no one can forget about that update, not only was released in the middle of Warframe's longest content drought to date, it was also a  long request from players but it was  "addressed" horribly, Players quit in frustration and did a lot more then that. DE undid this change but the damage was already done.

No amount of waiting, hype or "gate keeping" (the list goes on, I'm afraid) will blow minds, you can dislike what I have to say by all means, but it takes a person with common sense to realize that Warframe no longer has their shiny rep anymore.

Hello again Psi! :highfive: 

I was wondering which part of The Vacuum Within update you were reffering to? Is it the "All Sentinels now have a passive 6 meter Loot Vacuum, no Mods required!" part? Link to Forum Update Notes

I don't know because I started playing around April/May 2018. When I was doing the research I realized that it was almost two years from DE saying "Sentinels first, but Pets aren't off the table." in October 2016 to Fetch being released in November 2018.

Hi 🖖

Yes, it was this update, IIRC the update was, let's say, not one of their proudest moments, due to the update added "That Sentinels were being adjusted to have a Vacuum range of 6 meters rather than 12" And as of the announcement it prompted "Questionable" actions across the whole community, Since that time and due to the "Backlash" Digital extremes has apparently decided to change the range back, that granted the mod back with 12, that can be put on ALL Sentinels.

 

Now I don't agree with the "methods" that was used, not by a long shot, but the damage that was done and the continuation of "Bad" updates (Railjack/Arcwing/Umbra Warframe/New War Delays, etc). The "Show and Ship issue" and so on and so on. kept damaging the reputation, on top of that DE made questionable partnerships as well, made it a lot worse.  

 

Like I said, Warframe itself had a massive golden rep and now, it's gone, the only reason why folks will tell you otherwise, but they are either new people or "Loyalists" as polite as I can put it without trying to kick the nest. (I've been burnt for that once, but that only further proves my point).

 

Edit: If you wish to see more info, Please DM me, I'll send you the info (I can't send it here)

Oh, don't get me wrong, the previous years were empty promises. It was physically impossible to release Railjack, Liches and New War the same year, I have no idea what people at DE were thinking. Then COVID hit them too, causing New War to be moved even further. I hate the fact that DE has lost a sense of direction (to the point that even after reworking Railjack, they don't know what plans they have for it), because it hurts the game. They shouldn't be afraid of hack and slash aspect of Warframe or adding any kind of vertical progression (something that would keep players invested, instead of releasing new weapons that are barely stronger, maybe new ways to upgrade current weapons would be better). 

That being said, the fact they finally decided to focus on New War makes me happy, since this update is way more important than Railjack or Liches could ever be. Maybe Im too optimistic, but Im hoping it will land, especially since our expectations are incredibly low. So don't worry, common sense applies to both of us here.

credit boosters and affinity boosters really aren't helpful to new players, who lack resources to take advantage of either...

How new are we talking? They helped me a lot when I was new because I had access to the index with a rhino. And affinity for helene leveling.

where is the problem? Baro has resource boosters! 😉

this is the problem resource boosters stack with resource weekend booster making resource weekends very useful compared to only having a booster.

yes please this! I realized, every time they did double booster weekends this year, that we havent got double resource since like scarlet spear(?) Dunno why they keep skipping it

my guess is because of steel essence since DE doesn't seem to want anyone to get a roll for a riven that is worth using.
