Idea: PvP Based On Different Faction Gameplay

Not sure if this has been discussed in the past or already considered, but:

I think a good alternative or even replacement for the traditional Conclave is to make the game mode be like the gameplay in the first sections of The New War Quest. The game mode could let players choose from the different factions in Warframe and play as a Grineer, a Corpus, Dax or Tenno with Drifter's kit in the opening segments. It seems like the seeds for game mode like this are there; Veilbreaker brought a very fun and solid experience with Khal's mission and I think a this could an awesome PvP experience.

It has. A lot, actually.

Major problem is just development time for it. It's a new system so it has to be set up, balanced, bugtested, etc. And DE, and the Warframe community in general, isn't super positive on PvP in Warframe. Makes it really hard to justify the expenditure for it. It's bad enough getting fixes for regular Conclave sometimes.

Plus if it's team-based, that "people aren't super positive on PvP Warframe" hits twice as hard, because you need the populace for it to function much at all. At least current Conclave can settle in 1v1s, and even that's hard to come by sometimes.

DE shouldn't design a gamemode catering to people who currently don't play PvP. They'd be taking a gamble doing that, last time they tried to design a competitive gamemode that was different from traditional Conclave, Lunaro, it got abandoned quickly by the community once the novelty wore off.

You also have to ask yourself: do you think DE will actually care to maintain the gamemode? Looking back at their history, chances are they won't, which means the mode will break, either literally or through poor balance, and be another neglect-induced failed PvP.

 

Finally, the gameplay itself. The current Conclave community doesn't play Conclave because it's the best implementation of a high mobility shooter in the market. They play it because it's the ONLY shooter in the market with this level of mobility. Outside of that, the gamemode has big flaws (these range from basic 3rd person camera shenanigans such as cornershooting or your warframe blocking your crosshair to just blatant balance issues).

If you take away this mobility, DE's PvP will now actually have to compete with other slower, grounded shooters. And, yet again, looking back at DE's history at managing PvP, this grounded PvP will stand no shot at competing against existing PvP shooters that were designed from the ground up by a team that cares. All this while current issues like balance or 3rd person camera issues, the latter which will be massively exacerbated by the undoubtedly slower gameplay, will still remain present.

I would like to see some kind of Battlefront multiplayer in this game. You play as ordinary soldiers, and sometimes you may spawn as a warframe for limited time. We already have coop invasions, where we may select a faction. Just bring this to multiplayer.
