Sixty5 Posted July 20, 2014 Share Posted July 20, 2014 Let me start by saying that I love U14, It has been relatively bug free for me, and all the new content is great. That being said, there is one point of the update that leaves a sour taste in my mouth, and that is the way Kubrows have been monetized. To start with there is the gene scrambling. Now I wouldn't mind this so much IF we were given the option to choose, but instead we have the option of dropping 10 plat into our Kubrow to roll the dice on it. In just about every other aspect of the game, the use of platinum allows you to bypass the random wall, allowing you to get what you want faster and without the same degree of hassle, but here if you want to make changes it is all up to the RNG gods. To put it into perspective lets look at it in terms of Warframes. You have a Rhino, you like Rhino, but your Rhino doesn't look the way you want, but instead of the normal customisation options all you have is the ability to hit the Random button for the price of 10 plat. But you do it anyway, because you want to look cool. Now instead of a Rhino you have a Volt, and you like the way he looks even less than your Rhino, so you hit it again, and you now have a Nyx with a nice colour scheme, but what you really want is a Rhino, so you go back and hit the button again and again, each time losing 10 plat. Not ideal. The second, and bigger issue in my eyes is the Stasis time. For those that do not know, if you have multiple Kubrows you will need to keep all but your active one in Stasis. If you want to switch them out you will have to wait three hours before your Kubrow is ready to be used in a mission, but for the low, low price of 10 plat, you can have it ready immediately! I'd like to point out here that i have no problem with the timewalls that exist for building gear or researching things in the dojo, it builds anticipation and rewards thinking ahead, but sticking in timewalls for changing your loadout? REALLY? Imagine having to wait for 3 hours everytime you went to switch out your sentinel, or hell even when switching out your Warframe and weapons. It is a time-wall for the sake of time-walls and accomplishes nothing except a cheap money grab. So DE please remove the stupid Stasis timewall, and allow us to choose our Kubrows appearance. There is no way in hell that I am going to spend 10 plat on a random chance at getting the look I'd like, but I'd happily pay 75 for a colour palette or a pattern chooser, and I imagine a number of other people would as well. /rant over Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
