      [Please Read Before Posting Threads] What Is And Isn't General Discussion?   03/31/2016

      Tenno, Recently a lot of forum users have been posting feedback, bug and question threads about the game here in General Discussion, only to complain when community moderators or forum staff move their thread to the appropriate section.   General Discussion is not for feedback about the game, for bug reports or for help questions, we have other forum sections specifically for these things.   There are a few criteria for determining what feedback is and what general discussion is, but the two main criteria are the following: Objective - The goal of the thread Target Audience - Who is being addressed with the thread   A feedback thread's objective is affecting the game; be it through negative feedback (change is desired) or positive feedback (change is not desired). And a feedback's Target Audience is the developers; your thread is directed towards DE, they are who you are making the thread for. If either two of these criteria are met then the thread is most likely feedback (and belongs in the appropriate feedback subforum).    A general discussion thread's objective is not to affect the game, it's to hold a discussion. And the Target Audience of a general discussion thread is other players and the community, not the developers. For example, a thread titled "Which frame do you like the most and why?" would be a discussion thread, because its objective is a discussion about what players enjoy, and it's audience is other players.   Ultimately, a lot of what determines whether a thread is a feedback thread is the opening post. Although feedback threads can have discussions in them between players, this does not make it general discussion. What it boils down to is the goal of the thread and who it's addressing. It's a thread for conveying opinions to the developers, and people are bound to agree and disagree (and therefore start a discussion on said thread).   -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   If you post something in General Discussion and find that it's no longer there, chances are it's been moved (if it was merged, we will try to notify you via private message, but sometimes when we have to merge a large number of threads we may not be able to). Here's a helpful guide for you to figure out where it might have been moved to:   Players Helping Players is the forum for when you have a question about something in the game or need help with something game-related--such as mod builds for frames/weapons, build comparisons, how to craft certain things, where to find components/mods/enemies, strategies for bosses, etc. Guides, solutions, tips and tricks can all be placed here. With hundreds of thousands of players, there's bound to be one that has experienced the same issue as you and has figured out how to solve it! PC Beta Bugs, PS4 Beta Bugs and XB1 Beta Bugs are the places for threads reporting malfunctioning parts of the game, bugs, things that have broken, et cetera (you should really make a support ticket too!). Fan Zone is the place for fan fiction, fan-sponsored contests, screenshots to share your achievements and Warframe-related video streams/Youtube channels. Fan Concepts is the place for concepts for new systems, warframes, weapons, and gameplay mechanics. PC Trading Post, PS4 Trading Post and XB1 Trading Post are for all things trading on the respective platforms. Threads looking to sell, buy, and trade go here, as well as any price checking. If you post a thread critiquing changes or content in the game, it's likely been moved to one of the Feedback Subforums, the guide to which is below.   Because feedback threads are by far the biggest offender in General Discussion, I've put together this guide on where feedback goes, breaking up and explaining the feedback subforums (Feedback forums are where the devs go for feedback regarding the game! Not General Discussion!). The list is a bit lengthy, so it's been put in spoiler tags:     So, for example, if you make a thread in General Discussion saying something like "The lore really needs work, and this is how I think it should be done" then it's probably going to get moved to the General Feedback forum. If you're dissatisfied with a recent patch or update and want to give DE a piece of your mind, the Specific Feedback associated with your platform (i.e. PC Specific Feedback or PS4 Specific feedback) is probably where it will get moved to (it may also be moved to the other feedback forums depending on what the thread is specifically about).   Wording is also very important, and your choice of description is also. This is why many people mix up feedback with discussion. In discussion, you are talking about things that are current, not commenting on how cool or disappointing they are. For example, 'What do you think is the best frame? I like Valkyr because of her focus on melee.' is General Discussion, whereas 'Valkyr is a really good frame. Her melee animations are nice, and her abilities compliment eachother well.' is feedback.     tl;dr - We have specific subforums for feedback, bug reports, helping players, fan-made stuff and so on. General Discussion is not a "catch-all" forum, and for the sake of keeping things tidy and organized we'd really appreciate it if you didn't treat it as such!   If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, please feel free to post them here or to send me or the other moderators a private message!

I think the fact that all his body weight is in his torso is a little odd. It's like everything got sucked up to his body. Legs and arms are skinny but torso is kinda fat 0_o.

Anyone actually wanting to criticize the frame don't bother commenting, this is just going to be a "DE's the best at making skinny deer 'paladin' " circlejerk.

You're confusing criticism with blind hate. Please look up the definition of criticism and realize why it's vital to the progress of Warframe, and really any other game, and also why silencing criticism is the worst possible thing you can do in a creative environment.

That said, I like the overall theme that Oberon went with, right down to the name. His lower legs do still seem a bit odd, purely because of how thin they are.

His abilities seem a bit bad for higher level play, all sort of "damage/heal" type abilities with no %age stuff. Could be wrong, but from the preview video it seems that he is not going to be good for higher level play which is a shame :(

I cannot think of what role he is going to play in a squad against higher level enemies. His heal is nothing compared to trinity's, his damaging abilities doesn't do any form of CC. And I am quite disappointed with his abilities really, doesn't seem to have any synergy at all and not really the paladin/druid kinda frame i was expecting.

 

But I am liking his looks, such a sexy goat.

Who keeps designing these warframes with such skinny limbs? Do they forget there is a person inside? Honestly, this is what happens when you have a select few that do the art and get their way with no outside intervention. I honestly get the impression that the designs they come up with are the first ones they make. Is Mynki the one that has the say on this? Is he the only one? Who else approves these designs for the warframes? Who else draws them? Who critiques it? Who approves it?

All I can say is this frame is brilliant. The powers are well thought out and work well.

By your definition a Deer is a druid...

 

Druids are defined by their nature magic, not by having horns on their head.

The lower body is not good neither his forearms,also have in mind that it is not explained to us what exactly are the Warframes so as to understand if a huiman wears them or remotely controls them

I did make a thread about the Void and the the Tenno origins. It walks about how first Tenno Warframes may have been created around warriors warped by the Void. If you read about how the Orokin sent people into the Void but not all returned. Those who did had a frame build around them "A conduit of their affliction". I think those who did make it out of the Void were deformed/altered. Maybe each frame was created around a different individual and that's why they're all different. There are some gaps in this theory though. Why could our Tenno use any of they don't have the same body structure of the frame? We know very little of the Warframe and their creation.

How do we even know the tenno are humanoid? Everyone always asks how a person could fit inside, so maybe the answer is that one doesn't. As JahziLLa said, the tenno may have different shapes, due to the void's influence, and some may simply be lumpy masses of flesh like the infested, just sealed inside a humanoid suit.

If I could change one thing about Oberon it's the fat torso. Skinny everywhere else but a fat body!?!?!?! If the body looked like it fit the legs and arms I would have nothing to complain about.

Who knows, maybe Oberon was crippled before he ventured into the void; maybe even became crippled in the void. The lore states that the Orokin built frames around the twisted few that returned from the void and that's where warframes come from.

Hah I completely missed your comment! For some reason I absolutely love the idea of a man thing being crippled before becoming what we know as a Warframe. It has some cool imagery.

Sorry for the redundancy.

He looks like a druid, his name is the King of Fairies, yet the names of his powers sound Paladin-y.  What a Frankenstein.  

 

I won't know how he plays for another three days, though.  Profile video doesn't tell much.
