      [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). The 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 "What is your opinion on the recent changes to X from Update/Hotfix X?" 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 each other 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!

De, Please Please Do Not Do Business With Perfect World (Mega/hyper/ultrathread)

Recommended Posts

Please read the following before jumping to conclusions: What We Currently Know About the PWE Deal (Reddit)

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

As someone who played STO both before and after PW purchased Cryptic, I feel I have to voice my concern over this acquisition. Warframe is a game with a huge amount of potential, and having PW pulling their strings behind the scenes is a surefire way to destroy that potential.

 

I'm not sure that there's anything you (DE) could do at this point, but I would applaud any efforts made to stop this from happening. Even self-sabotoge to make the company seem less desirable is not out of the question.

 

(For those of you who aren't familiar with PW, acquisition by them will dramatically shift development away from new gameplay content. Instead, expect development to focus on a plethora of obnoxious, obtrusive lockbox and other lottery-type systems)

 

EDIT (for those looking for a more legitimate source, this is the stock exchange release):

 

 

 

EDIT 2: For those of you still in doubt whether or not this is real, more links:

Even IF this is real or IF it happens, I highly doubt DE will allow any sort of meddling with Warframe or anything else. They've already experienced that with Dark Sector, and the whole reason they are self-publishing is because they want to do Warframe on their terms.

I stand by my statement. If you've ever heard the way DE describes Warframe and how they plan to approach it from an independent development cycle, you'd see what I mean.

O dear lord ...

After what they did with Cryptic Studios.

 

I really really pray this will never happen!

(and I'm not even a religious person!)

Now you've scared me for sure.

 

 

I've read the sources. No, DE I beg you, don't turn Warframe into a money machine.

 

Your player count will decrease rapidly, everyone will lose fun.

 

;_;

 

PW, this abomination of a company must not infect Warframe.

 

DE, Salad V, Derf Anyo, Elephantis, Stalker, Warframes....

 

They're all under your control... for now.

 

 

-Revan-

Plan of action if DE is purchased by PW: Demand money refunds

 

Plan of action if DE denies everything and it turns out it was a big hoax: No more complaining of RNG.

 

 

 

I'm really hoping for a response from the DE staff right now. Everyone who can, monitor the ,,who's reading" section. This thread will be large and in charge.

 

 

Warframe can go in two different ways.

 

One of which is:

The other one is:

^This. Look this up. It's a petition. Sign this please! Save Warframe !

 

 

Threadnaught Prime cooled down.

 

From the souces and the explanations I've read, it's very unlikely that DE will sell the whole company.

 

So we can get back to Salad V's greedy milk now.

 

To lower the chances of PW even participating in DE, sign this petition.

 

https://www.change.org/petitions/digital-extremes-ltd-not-to-sellout-to-perfect-world-entertainment#share

 

And OP, ask the ComMods to lock this thread. It's causing chaos in the forums.

 

And remember guys/girls, no more complaining about RNG!

 

One more thing. STOP with the no-login BS. You're just helping PW this way.

Hmmm.... Well, I'm not going to over-react and jump ship, but...  Lets just say I'm glad Kingdom Under Fire 2 is coming out and DFO is being brought back.
