Dracario Posted July 3, 2014 Share Posted July 3, 2014 Tenno, there is a problem among newcomers and veterans, and the problem doesn't cease to stop. What problem is this? The problem is more complex than it seems. #1: The Founder's Pack -I know what most of you are thinking and I can tell that the entire community is split between adding the lost content (the Lost Content being Excalibur Prime, Lato Prime, and Skana Prime). Many say "Bring us Excalibur Prime!" (the people who miss out on the Founder's Pack) and others say "No keep it exclusive, those who spent their money for the pack will [insert threatening comment here]!" (people who spent their money for the Founders Pack). However, I'm here thinking "What can I do to stop this conflict of veterans and the newcomers?" Here are some suggestions. -Make the Prime Weapons Available How I see it, many aim at Excalibur Prime because they want to collect all the warframes and mod them to their heart's content but due to its unavailability being "Founders Exclusive". As I search the Founders pack i realize it's only Excalibur being wanted and not the weapons. So a simple suggestion is: Reward Mastery Ranked 15+ Skana and Lato Primes. They put enough hours into the game to reach that rank so why not reward them for their time? Sudden Founder's Pack buyer comes in! "No! I've spent cash to get these!" True words but you bought (theoretically) the Grandmaster pack. You got Excalibur, Lato, and Skana-BUT WAIT! You also got into the Design Council and a Solar Landmark! What's so special about these? Here is the article from the wiki: The Solar Landmark is a descriptor of every mission in the game. It is displayed in a text ticker in the lower right of the info box of planets when the mouse is hovered over any available (i.e. not locked) mission node. The symbol is that of the Grand Master and the text is the user name of a Grand Master. If a player is a Grand Master, the shortcut to the left of the game mode selection button in the form of the Grand Master star symbol, will take the Grand Master to their own Solar Landmark as well as displaying one of the following messages, voiced by the Lotus: "Now the Tenno are stronger by your hand, Grandmaster." "The Lotus is pleased to be in the presence of a Grandmaster." "We are in your debt, Grandmaster. Thank you." "The Tenno have gained great strength thanks to you, Grandmaster." "With your support Grandmaster, the Tenno will rise again." Design Council privileges are given to the top two tiers. This includes the ability to view design council forums (hidden to other players) and vote on designs, features, and names in the game. The staff is significantly more involved in the design council forums. Many announcements about the game are released there before announced to the free community. This feature is now given to a selected 25 players a month, as well as Master and Grandmaster founders. In order to gain access to the Design Council you must be an active contributor to the forums. And adding to that you get your own private chat and beta keys. That matters because you have more exclusive areas where normal players cannot. (You have your own forums too, don't you feel like snobby rich people?) So why not give the weapons to the public? Sure 2 weapons from the Founder's Pack would be released but this is easily outclassed by current weapons (Brakk, Akstilleto, Dragon Nikana and Dakra Prime) so why not release Lato and Skana? I mean...It IS F2P. #2: Unreleased Mods -I had a recent argument with an alliance mate about how unbalanced some old mods are. More specifically Sacrifice, the mod that makes your sentinel revive you when you're downed (not killed mind you). He goes on about people buying revives more than I usually know and I understand completely. However up-to-date, Sacrifice would scale fantastically into late game. On rare occasions you're too far away (or unnoticed) from your teammates and you have to waste a revive (which also happens to be your last) to get back to them. However, your sentinel revives you instead and you don't need to waste a revive. "But wouldn't that be unfair for the business?" It would be if newcomers started out with Dethcubes or Carriers (which they don't most likely). It would only affect those who have some experience who decided to build a sentinel. "What about EMP Aura or Affinity Amp!?" EMP Aura can be easily fixed by reducing the ranks from 10/20/30/40/50/60% to 5/10/15/20/25% if not then by 2/4/6/8/10% accuracy to machinery. It doesn't make corpus free experience just because it lowers accuracy (because good grief are MOAs accurate). And Affinity Amp? I don't know how low can one get there probably reduce the rank to 3 and increase the exp to 3%/6%/9% (or 2%/4%/6%) and cannot stack maybe? and the Pistol and Shotgun Amps should be released as well just make them scale like rifle amp just end Pistols with 35% at max rank and shotguns at 50% or less. There's nothing wrong with the old unreleased mods, just a few tweaks here and there and it could be simply fixed. (However Primed Chamber would be a no go but would be ideal to make Snipers useful again). In all there is a problem a community faces when given exclusive items and unreleased mods, many want them so they can say "I completed the game...for now." because we all have a completionist in us. I'd like constructive criticism for thoughts on this thread. Tell me what you think we can do to bring back deleted content. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
