Innocent_Flower Posted July 19, 2014 Share Posted July 19, 2014 (edited) Just food for thought here; The game is set up in such a way that it can be literally impossible to beat a mission because your guns suck. The enemy might just have too much health or too much armour or shield and the player can be just simply incapable of killing something. The uncountable numbers of insta-kill hit-scan enemies isn't great either. There's an opposite end of the scale, in which the enemy just can't kill you even if you Idle in the midst of them, where you can kill the enemy just by spraying randomly. I'm rank 13 at the moment. I've grinded many an hour for all my gear and mods. I'm thinking that this... crazy power difference is just too much. It isn't good for gameplay. I mean you have to change your gear all the time to match the mission's difficulty and that just ain't convenient and most people simply won't. When it comes to Endless gamemodes in the void you go across long periods of " mind-numbingly easy" then a "just right" and then a "cry like a $#*(@" phase with the "just right phase" being by far the shortest. It's the worst part of warframe's design. I'm not saying "the boltor prime should be harmless and serration should do +1% damage till max rank where it only gives +11% damage". Because People worked hard for that gear. That gear is harder to get. It Should be better, but not to the crazy heights it is now. You can currenlty make your gun over a thousand percent more damaging. Now I'm saying that If i were to take a braton and a fragile frame with few mods into T3 capture , I should be able to win. It should be about as difficult as Halo game on legendary with every skull on or dark souls as the deprived class, but it should be winnable. That's currently not how the current game works. If I tried that in the current game, I'd fail, no matter how skilled I might be. Even if I used exploits I'd fail (note: I don't know any exploits.) On the other hand, I should be able to play a low level game and be able to die in one of my warframes. All of My frames are above rank 20, Most of them are at 30. I have them all but regular mag/ frost, prime loki and the new gal. I can put on a good shield or health mod and find myself completely invincible to even the most dangerous enemy types. That's true for even the squishies. and i shouldn't realy have to make 'noob' loadouts for every frame just to find challenge on low level content. I found the prologue cool. The enemies and weapons there are perfectly balanced. I think there might have been a little bit of cheating in that your health didn't seem to go below a certain point, but it parts of it felt challenging. It didn't feel like a grind to get to the finish, it made me feel like the game could pull me in on it's gameplay rather than just grind. Again, and i can't stress this enough because I'm certain one idiot will pull the " I worked hard to be stupidly op" reaction, It wasn't because I was a modless volt (or mag, when the game booted me and made me do it again) It was because I felt skilled. There isn't much player skill in the game now. In the Card allocating meta-game? Sure there's skill, but it realy detracts from player skill. If I had played that prologue with my actual volt, I would have been bored by the experience.I'd never take health damage and Vor would die. For the majority of the weapons in this game there's no "I feel like this could use more ammo and a different rate of fire" it's "Damage, Damage, Damage, this Damage, Damage" and it's all done more by calculations than personal preference. What's the point of that? We might as well just scrap the mod system and have levels multiply the damage of their weapons. You can't avoid it and if you want to play you need to become the unfeeling calculator in order to even consider playing a hard void mission. It ain't fun. Warframe could be a fantastic game, but it's got smear all over it by this unwanted statistical bloat.
