Zorex Posted July 31, 2014 Share Posted July 31, 2014 It was recently clarified by a redditor what happens if your let your kubrow's DNA stability drop (presumably) below 0%. I don't know if it goes lower than 0%, but that's largely irrelevant to the point I'm making here. See here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/comments/2c6ztn/psa_this_is_what_happens_if_you_let_the_dna/ The fact that DNA stability dropping to 0% causes your kubrow to die is not what irks me. The fact that I lost a kubrow I specifically breeded for because I forgot to put it into stasis is not what irks me. The fact that I lost a significant amount of platinum is not what irks me (I couldn't care less about a refund). What does irk me is the fact that the UI explicitly says "<name> has x% more health". More. Had you left out this qualifier, it would have been perfectly clear that dropping to 0% health equals death. But since you included it, I think it's safe to say that a significant amount of people understood it to mean "your kubrow has x% more health than its base health". It does in fact have this effect, but the death element is just kind of not mentioned anywhere at all. I feel cheated and ripped off. And it's not even about the platinum, it's about ethics. Whether kubrows dying from low DNA stability is good game design, or whether charging real money for stuff you can actually lose is ethical is secondary to the point I'm trying to make here, which is that we were not properly informed that kubrows -- a game element that can be paid for with real money -- die at 0% DNA stability. People have asked numerous times which events can cause permanent death for kubrows since U14 landed, and as far as I know, it's never been made clear that low DNA stability was one of them. Even if it has been mentioned somewhere, it was not made clear in the UI text. Like I said, I don't want a refund. I just want this crap fixed one way or another, whether that's by clarifying the UI text, changing the game mechanics, or something else. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
