Ssinurn Posted July 19, 2014 Share Posted July 19, 2014 So, first and foremost, I don't want this to come off as a *@##$-post about the newest update. I love the fact that the devs are working on polishing the game; I've been playing for a while, and to watch warframe go from something that looked like a F2P download that you wasted time on to a full blown gaming experience has been awesome. That said, I'm a little confused with the direction of the newest tutorial. Again, I've been playing for a while, so alot of the things that I take for granted- knowing how mods work, knowing how to toggle through weapons, etc- are easy for me. My question is, is this really what new players need the most help on? When I bring a new player into the game, there are alot of things I have to teach them. My problem is that most of those are still tribal knowledge issues- Things passed down from me to them, rather than intuitively included in the game. Instead of a longer tutorial to show them how to swap weapons, I feel like there needs to be more focus on the things a new player's going to be hurting on the most. I haven't been through the whole tutorial yet, but I feel like more information needs to be put out about, for example, the usefulness of a jump melee or a jump slide kick for knocking things down, or how to pick out a weapon that's worth a potato- Particularly since alot of the resources required to invest in making and then potato-ing a new weapon aren't easy for a new player to come by. How many of you, the general audience, have wasted potatoes on weapons that just don't cut it- And often, you don't find that out until you've burned it, finished leveling the weapon, and discover that you need a few forma, a hope, a prayer, and three feet of duct tape to make your new weapon even moderately useful? Again, not designed to be complaining, but constructive. I want this game to continue to improve, and I've seen alot of new, cool stuff happen since I first started playing- I just want to make sure that when the devs move in a direction, their time and effort is spent in the places that best reward them for their hard work, and make the game the most approachable for new players.
