Excalibur Proto Armor Question


Recommended Posts

Anyways, I'm not saying they're 100% confirmed to be coming back. I'm just saying, that until DE says something that's up to date, things could go either way for the Vandals.

It was exclusive, I believe they specifically said it would never come back.
And people stop comparing this to Excalibur Prime, having Exalibur Prime means you get the extra Mastery Points from it, have a combatant armor no one else has available to them, and it keeps people away from collecting every frame. It's content that actually effects the overall game-play, compared to this skin which is only cosmetic.

As I said, I wouldn't rule out them not bringing it back, but I do expect a bit larger price. It would appeal to everyone, with players who missed it getting the chance to get it, and older players being content with the lower price they paid.

No, they didn't.

It specifically says that it's available for sale for a limited time only.  Businesses regularly re release products sold with that kind of language.

 

Excalibur prime is an entirely different situation since they said it would only be available from the founders program.

There's no up to date or not.  If they said it's exclusive it's exclusive.  That's just how it works.  DE has consistently kept their word when they've said that.

Just like Aggh said, if they say it's exclusive, it is, if they don't, they will probably re-release them at one point.

 

Cicero mods and Brakk ?. No one said they're "exclusive" for their events, they were just special cakes. Hell, they even released the Detron.

"7) OPTIONAL Account Reset doesn’t have a date yet, but you will keep your Frost Prime Blueprint and all other exclusive gear."

 

You were saying?

 

Seriously, I can't believe you forgot about the uproar that ensued after it was found out that you could get Frost Prime from the void. Seriously, the event announcement page flat-out said it was exclusive, too. (However, that post/page is long gone...)

 

(Note: It didn't bother me when it turned out it wasn't exclusive. But this is a perfect example of DE not following their word. Another is them saying they "want to reduce grind", yet only doing things to increase it, but that's a different topic entirely.)

The whole kerfuffle over frost prime was why they started being more careful with their language about exclusives.  It was the first event the game ever had and they were still developing how exactly primes would be treated.  They would have changed their decision over closed beta rewards back then if they were going to.

Is it too soon to begin the whining and agitating to make <Fill-In-The-Blank> available again?  Because I remember them saying <Fill-In-The-Blank>, and they never actually said they wouldn't ever ever ever bring back <Fill-In-The-Blank> in those actual words.  If they really weren't ever going to bring it back, I think they would have said so in the way I just described. 

 

I believe that <Fill-In-The-Blank> should be made available again, because <Fill-In-The-Blank>, and also because <Fill-In-The-Blank>.  I just think it's totally unfair that some people can have <Fill-In-The-Blank>, but other people who want it and would be willing to pay for it can't.  This is total BS. 

 

I really think DE needs to do this, because <Fill-In-The-Blank>, and <Fill-In-The-Blank>, and also <Fill-In-The-Blank>.

You're assuming things. The ONLY time they ever said they were "exclusive" was over a year ago. Things change. Since then, they have never flat-out said that they were never coming back. ONLY the founder's items have been 100% confirmed to be, and stay, exclusive.

Founders items confirmed "no active plans to re-release". I'd expect active plans once Prime Access has exhausted all prime warframes. Which is what, at least a year? Essentially at this moment nothing in the entire game is confirmed permanently exclusive. Proto Armor is a limited time thing, so as mentioned don't expect it before next prominent date for the game - like second or third anniversary.

That's just diplomatic language they've used in some posts.  Their talk in the live streams was a lot more explicit:

I don't have the links but both DeRebekah and DeDrew have made very very plain statements that Founders and Closed Beta items are true exclusives and will never be re released. They even took them out the PS4 codex because you can't get it and it bothered completionists.

I'm confused lol

Presumably the plain glaive  is the tenno glaive derived from the glaive prime which is based off of Hayden Tenno's glaive.

Again, the only time they said the closed beta vandals were exclusive was that one post more than a year ago. Founders stuff, on the other hand, has been stated to be exclusive repeatedly, and recently.

 

Until DE makes an up-to-date official announcement, the closed beta weapons could go either way.

And why exactly do the braton and lato vandal need a special 1 year refresh on their exclusivity as closed beta rewards?  Why exactly do they have to say it again?  The reason why they said they were exclusive is pretty clear.
