What!? That means you had a bad player and not that the ability was bad. Oh, btw dying is not a big deal at all, and on mate not doing much isn't a big deal either

It appears that noone is talking about this so I assume that noone has this problem other than me. Somewhere around Sisters of Parvos my chat broke and I've been constantly disconnecting from the chat until I decide to type something. My friends can't reach me ingame, I cannot recieve trade offers, whenever I talk in clan chat I don't get responses and find myself in a completely different topic. I'm pretty sure that it isn't me because it does this even though my internet connection is stable. It kinda stopped for a day on Nidus and Plague Star patch but it decided to continue after that day aswell.

Have you actually tried it after the patch? My assumption was they were fixing the actual bug - dropping it in certain places instantly completed the stage. I haven’t had a chance but I am hoping Loki can still move it. 

that would be them making the right decision, no? do you trust them for that?

Thanks for the update.

May I suggest something tho ? I'm not satisfied with the controller key binding for Meruline dash. It's cool and all but we can't  do a proper vertical slam attack anymore (by double tapping LB), wich is super useful for mobility. I think it would be better if we trigger it by holding LB + jump to be the same like a normal bullet jump.

Nidus Prime's Prime Details are STILL BROKEN on his tennogen skins. If you toggle prime details on his tennogens ALL of his mutation parts completely disappear. This screenshot was taken on PC but it's likely also a console bug. 

PLEASE FIX THIS

Fixed an extremely precise Loki Switch Teleport on the Plague Star Escort Drone resulting in ability to skip most of the third Bounty stage wherein players were sending the Drone off-navigation into a Sniper Tower as an exploit.

Added clarification here

I want to trust them. Because fixing the exploit makes sense. Preventing Loki from moving the drone doesn’t. I figure DE actually wants us to do that, why else would the drone be so slow and far away from the destination? You make the boss fight harder by encouraging people to bring frames that don’t help with it, like Loki.

 

See above post, it was fixing the exploit.

Fixed warframe abilities used to improve player experience and reduce grind fatigue (after double checking the tool tips this time).

EDIT: Thanks for clarifying the Loki "fix" wasn't a complete nerf to switch teleport.

I'm now torn between being understanding, being frustrated that this wasn't also taken as a sign the drone needs to move faster and be buffed by more frames (e.g. Volt, Wisp), or being frustrated that the fixed exploit barely impacted the total mission and just did the thing everyone wishes would happen in the first place.

Reb just edited, looks like this time, they did the right thing. one point for you, sir!

Any chance Yareli could get 90% damage reduction on Merulina, like Nezha's Warding Halo? Ideally with a damage absorption period as well.

Edit to clarify why 75% isn't enough:
If Yareli and Nezha both take 100 damage, with their respective defense active, Yareli takes 25 while Nezha takes 10. (With their respective defense ability taking the rest.) Through this, we can see that Yareli takes 2.5 times the damage Nezha takes, which is a lot. Versus a frame with 95% damage reduction, she takes 5 times the amount, which is A LOT. As is obvious, Merulina needs at least 90% damage reduction to be on par with your average tanking skill.

This. Or, give Yareli more hp/shields/armor to mitigate. This is the easiest solution, IMO.

Missed Change note:

Sentients taking Status Effects is now intentional. In preparation for The New War, we’ve been looking into polishing up and tweaking Sentients in general; this includes the new glowing visual effects on some of them that you may have noticed!

Sentients don’t only adapt, they may even evolve as well...

Previously, Sentients adapting to your damage types could have led to fights drawing out just a little too long at all levels of gameplay. This change allows it so that you don’t need to rely solely on high Critical Chance / Critical Damage weapons to take them out. Time to break out the Stug!

seeming as sentients now are effected by status and are over all are easier enemy's to tackle could we see maybe an upping in the numbers of there spawns as going from mini-boss like enemy's to more along the lines of heavy units just having a couple of them at a time (murex and random spawns on lua) doesn't feel right anymore and overall feels like im killing an annoyance then something thats giving me a bit of a challenge and making me think.

please clarify if this means the drone can't be swapped at all

That doesn't mean that loki is bad but the players you've met. Your logic is broken.

"Fixed a precise Loki Switch Teleport on the Plague Star Escort Drone resulting in ability to skip most of the third Bounty stage. "

Seriously? Screw that holy crap
Then make that third part take less time.
Give it a maximum spawn range of like 500m so we don't have to escort what moves slower than a crouchwalking Tenno upwards of 1200m while dealing with it's nonexistant, incredibly broken pathfinding while it's under constant fire
There's a reason nobody likes escort missions, take a hint

Honestly feel like as devs  you should look into WHY people want to skip most of the 3rd phase instead of getting rid of the way people are doing it. Wouldn't call that an "exploit", it's more of a solution to being bored with mechanics that have 0 purpose but to slow people down. Whether it be a 3 minute afk (mobile defense) phase or babying a snails pace drone that gets caught on every visible and invisible objects. I never used Loki for Plague Star, but if I knew about this feature I would have done it also to make this event tolerable. 

I was excited when Plague Star was announced, but I can't even bring myself to do it once because of how slow and boring it is. The nice forma farm isn't worth doing such a dull event.

If you’ve engaged in the Adversary hunts with Kuva Liches and Sisters of Parvos, your Foundry might be suffering from some unavoidable clutter. The amount of Hounds and weapons sitting in your Foundry have grown to not only take up room in your list but also within the database itself!

To alleviate this clutter, you can now Sell a Hound and/or Adversary weapon directly from your Foundry without having to claim the item and use a Slot, granting yourself some Credits! Get cleaning up your (H)Foundry. Ordis’ orders!

 

Thanks for the best part of the hotfix though!
