-These Dark Sectors will become the Frontier when the new faction invades (dramatic music).

When will DE address rushing strategies on Solar Rails?


 


Currently a squad of four Tenno counts four points against a solar Rail at the SPEED OF THE SLOWEST TENNO.


 


When four Tenno each rushing the Solar Rail separately they count points against the Solar Rail at their own personal speed.  The slowest Tenno does NOT adversely affect the other three Tenno.


 


Thus Solar Rails are entirely susceptible to rushing as it is the most efficient way to take down a Solar Rail.


 


The only way to combat this is to award bonus points to squads with more than one Tenno.


 


Squad of one Tenno counts 1.00 point.


Squad of two Tenno counts 2.33 points.


Squad of three Tenno counts 3.67 points.


Squad of four Tenno counts 5.00 points.


 


This way grouping up is encouraged to take down Solar Rails, currently it is more efficient to solo rush them.

Aw no fun, they no longer let us post hype images :<

 

Totally looking forward to this, no matter how sadly I won't be able to access the new content for well over 20 hours.

PVP between warframes is not balanced at the moment.... I highly suggest it is looked at if this is decided!

Maybe if it's versus we could control the drones instead? :3

-snip-

Just my two cents...

 

-Armistice timers: GOOD (We can play with infested even more1 Yay!)

 

-Only 12 hours in Dark Sectors conflict: BAD (A LOT of people are not in the correct Region/hour spawn, Dark Sector conflict will be meaningless since someone can just punch your rail when you are asleep. PLEASE, reconsider this).

I'm sure people will hurt me for mentioning this but......

 

A 12 hour attack time would potentially put some rails at an advantage if their clan/alliance is awake during 12 hours the rail is being attacked or if the attack is done when the clan/alliance is asleep.

 

Edit: comment got Tenno'ed, gj : )

It had better not be, PVP is so unbalanced it is a waste of time to play.  Only frustration and anger lie down that path currently.

Mostly sound like good changes but I'm VERY trepidatious about "vs mode".

I think it would be interesting if the simulacrums were personally owned, and could be donated at a dojo.

 

That way, they could also be traded.

 

This would allow players to literally earn plat: If you've designed an impressive enough build, you can merc it out to anyone willing to pay for the honor of your presence on the battlefield.

or the Dark Sectors dies a horrible gruesome death with a significant portion of the player base boycotting them.

Very thin line taking place right now. Careful what you guys do next or you'll be upsetting a pretty big amount of the community.
