NoirProxy Posted March 21, 2013 Share Posted March 21, 2013 (edited) I have been one of the main Warframe supporters since the start. I was a VIP in the beta, recorded commentary footage from the get go for the Warframe community and sang high praises of a great action RPG. Over the course of...a day I have to say that my opinion of a game has never bolted an instant 180 until WARFRAME. Now at the moment I can see that WARFRAME has been split into two camps. We have the utterly confused and disappointed and the over the top "STFU" fanboys that are constantly questioning the disheartened crowd's intelligence. Seriously, what happened? This update has been nothing but a mess that has consisted of rushed concepts and dropped features that originally made the game a great journey and a fun pass time. The community once got along pretty good but now we have everyone arguing. This is obviously a problem that needs to stop being ignored. First I have to say that this MOD 2.0 system is just a complete ball ache. I get digital 3D cards can give some people boners but as many have said this is has completely screwed over the higher ranked playerbase and has messed up the frame stats and progression. While WARFRAME has always been a bit of a grind fest, it now seems that grinding is being used to bully players into desperately needing cards just to keep up with later levels. From what I remember I was comfortably on the 3/4 planet with a level 24 Nyx. Now I find that my Nyx and my nicely levelled up Sicarus and Zoren do crap against anything unless I am working without the restraints of the over powered Paris bow. This is a BETA, so why is it that some people, including the devs are treating this like a set in stone, perfect system? It has had the most negative feedback out of all the updates and in a way feels like a paint pallette but someone has gone and mixed all your colours together. Now don't get me wrong, changes can be good but why has a solid levelling system been dropped and progress/mods turned to lumps of junk just to allow this new levelling system to exist? Wouldn't it have been better to just increase the size and breadth of skill trees, so that people had even more to work towards? Instead we have cards that needed to be constantly and randomly grinded for just so we have a chance to continue onto the later levels. Even worse is the fact that there are now even more forced options into baiting people to buy platinum such as card packs, credit packs, platinum bundles, etc. I have to say that this has been an incredibly disappointing turn of a events. The individual player progress is a mess and there was no developed and implemented tutorial to guide people through this system on the update day. It is a poor concept, and really annoyingly and badly rushed. I can't even bring myself to play the game because it now feels like a complete chore to do anything. Where is the accessibility? Want to travel through galaxies feeling like a "bad &#! space ninja?" well tough luck as you now have to grind for this non-existant digital cards that eventually take way too much fusion to actually upgrade. Want to play already unlocked levels? Screw you buddy! As now your Warframe is a complete paper weight that gets steam rolled and loses all revives in one map. Don't worry though as we have lots of purchasable, cold hard cash revive packs and card bundles to get you through your frustration? What mom won't let you use her credit card? Then suck it little fella! I am incredibly let down. This has been a really sad week for WARFRAME. Edited March 21, 2013 by NoirProxy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
