iPathos Posted September 15, 2021 Share Posted September 15, 2021 Right, I'm pushed to doing this because I am sick to death of DE either ignoring entirely, or refusing to respond, expand on, detail, acknowledge, or in any way interact with the community outside of their own very limited stream response. Sure, they have a lot of "community streams" happening, but the actual responses given to any real concerns during those is little to none on a good day. I'm tired, I'm annoyed, I'm frustrated and I'm entirely sure they can do better. This has nothing to do with company acquisition behind the scenes - that happens with any game studio. This is longer-standing than that. You used to be known as the devs who stood out because of how much you listened to the players, how much you really considered their input into your game and their feedback around not just what went in, but also what was an idea. I understand that COVID-19 has been a barrier in many more ways than one, but this started before that even came onto the scene - it's only gotten that much worse since it did. I love Warframe, if I didn't I wouldn't have spent 4500+ hours in-mission and well over 12000 hours in total otherwise. If I didn't, I wouldn't have applied for the Guide of the Lotus position when it was known that you needed someone from the Oceanic region. I don't regret my input and time dedication because of that, but it does it make me question your own choices as we stand here. The fact you even have bug report forums with a proper format is a huge boon, some of us have spent years asking you to fix those bugs with that exact format ad-infinitum. But here we are, with the bugs still in the game and with (in almost every case) no response. Please, both now and when you can act properly without having to worry about quarantine or social distancing, try to go back to why we loved you as developers in the first place. It's a sad story to even try to look at things as they are, it honestly depresses me and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Also, as an aside; the Warframe Community Discord has never lost love for the game. We want to try contribute how we can to the community as a whole and to try to improve the game as best we see. Please, please, PLEASE; respond to people. It is not a good look and it makes us ever more frustrated as we await acknowledgement while reporting things that to many are very obvious. As a few examples; Voidrig's helmet spinning incorrectly with any other helmet than its default Amalgam Furax Body Count behaving incorrectly because of the changes made with "Melee 3.0" Many multiples of out-of-bounds areas being issues even though said areas are not out of bounds (such as several doors in the new corpus gas city tileset - they reset you for no reason with no preamble) The current issue with Pathocyst dealing half of the damage it should when using Heavy Attacks. Nidus Prime not counting for Invigorations (I am aware this may have been fixed with today's hotfix, I do not have Nidus Prime so I cannot confirm this from my own experience even so. The point is that it was still broken even after the first "fix".) Merulina simply not allowing movement through multiple tilesets because of vertical issues where you "bonk your head", let alone the fact it should be moddable. Expanded buff icons (only specific ones) for no reason The issue with Buzlok and the Tenet Diplos's homing shots being almost incapable of hitting some enemies because they orbit endlessly til they time out. There is a plethora of things that need to be acknowledged, if not at the very least told "Yes we're fixing it". Talk to us. Let us know. Be the devs that let us fall in love with your creation, because as of late it just makes many of us angry about what you've become. Edit: It seems I wasn't clear enough in my wording here - something I've attempted to clarify in later posts and in topic title changes. It's more communication from the team that I'm asking for here. I'm not asking for every bug report and every suggestion to be answered, be it in short or in detailed form; just...more than what we see as things stand. If that's not doable, please let us know. If there's no way to streamline the bug reporting process (like the later mentions of similar systems to the Minecraft Bug Tracker or Reddit Flair to make categorization or understanding simpler), then I may just have to live with the fact. For those saying the mention of the Community Discord doesn't matter or that they don't care - that's fine, that's your opinion. I mention it because of the level of immersion in the discontent of players that is experienced there often. It's important to give my perspective on the matter because it gives context as to the reasoning. I have also never claimed to know anything about game design/development, let alone being any kind of expert on the matter; I say these things as I see them and as I am told of them. Please ensure you check the whole thread before responding further, as without that you are only getting an incomplete picture of what I'm trying to get across here.
