Marshall Posted June 20, 2014 Share Posted June 20, 2014 (edited) There are many way to express your desires about a game, a common one is whining or raging.Alternatively, you can calm down and talk about specific changes that are needed to make this game more awesome than it already is.I tried to not interfere with the nature of this game being a free to play title which needs to generate real money income for the developers.So, here are the aspects that should be covered because virtually everybody complains about them: Random rewardsYes, the common burnout, this problems is based on the insane randomness of rewards. There is no need to argue about this, players need progression based rewards comparable to quest systems where you know the challenge with its reward.Random Number GeneratorThe fact that people complain some don't get anything useful for 100 runs and some others in only some runs does confirm that the RNG in this game is very well made. If you know about mathematical statistics you will understand that these cases must be included in a true random enviroment.Though, players should be aware that we cannot tell how RNG affects our gameplay. Of course there is many stuff being determined by the so called randomness, but since DE is the creator of RNG we will never certainly know how random it actually is or even it is not supposed to be random.InvasionsThe repetitive style of invasions is truely awful. These operations should have multiple stages with different mission types for each. If you have a five steps operation, the order could be spy, deception, sabotage, extermination, assassination (would kinda make sense).Prime and non-prime itemsThere is no point of releasing a similar item as prime version again because it renders the normal one rather worthless. Primes should be exclusive to players who spend real money on Warframe so they have something to show off. Additionally, this makes life for other players easier because they don't need to fear a prime release of their item and can put puzzles as well as potatoes on their stuff. Research itemsThere is no excuse to force players into joining a clan just to be able to obtain certain item blueprints due to networking problems around the world. Dojo research should be an alternative to getting item blueprints but not a requirement.Mission taxis for newbiesOne could consider to implement restrictions for new players to prevent them from joining high tier missions if they haven't completed the previous tier. Possible scenario: You need to complete e.g. Void Survival tier I, II, III, IV in succession before you may access a higher one.Artificial intelligence of enemiesHaters gonna hate: Player versus player modes are the solution.Why do we need to care about dimwit enemies if we could compete with actual intelligence opponents? Since dojo duelling and conclave was already introduced, it is completely possible to go further and include game modes like interception or spy.Balance is easy to achieve by disabling mods due to the nature of items being balanced without funtional enhancements.Anti-Solo policyJust like the point about clan research, DE has an extreme attitude against solo players, along with several mission types, especially event operations. Some goals can only be achievement by playing in groups. It is understandable that the developers want to increase teamplay but this must not be a requirement.Not existing skill based gameplayThe fact that there is mission scaling based on increasing enemies levels causes the main mischief in this game. There is basically no skill based gameplay, instead total progress still rules: If you have a kick-äss weapon with a lot of damage and a decent warframe, you will get easily through any mission type.Difficulty of missions should be based on the complexity of environment and enemies.Side note: Players' suggestionsI don't need to remind you that we are on the Internet. The majority of users still consists of kids who yell any opinion without thinking twice. The problem is that they get equal attention as experienced persons who can actually reflect. Just saying. There might be a part II because these are just a few of the things hanging around in my mind. let me know what you think Edit: improvement to language. thanks to Renegade343!
