Lagoon7 Posted August 1, 2014 Share Posted August 1, 2014 (edited) WARNING: after writing this and re-reading it, I noticed it is a bit of a rant, and does contain some vitriol (probably because the issue at hand is a targeted attack aimed specifically at my favorite play-style). My favorite play-style in many shooters is the high powered 1-shot sniper type thing. I find it really fun, can't explain why, but I do. However I can't play this style in warframe, because the only weapon that perfectly facilitates this play-style is impossible for me to use in its full capacity. Pretty much every other weapon in the game I can work towards making it the best, but only this one weapon, the one weapon I really want to use, i cannot simply because it would be far too weak without... Primed Chamber. Vectis is my dream gun, and i really do want to use it. But i don't have Primed Chamber, and i refuse to pay ridiculous amounts of platinum for it, and charged chamber is not only a poor substitute (less then half as effective) but stacks with it anyways. I mean sure, i could try and use it without Primed Chamber. But i would be using a gimped gun, half the gun people with Primed Chamber + Vectis would be using. I might as well just use my Snipetron Vandal, as without Primed Chamber it is far superior to the Vectis in pretty much every way. So i can't use my favorite gun, because it is horrifyingly gimped without an event exclusive mod. Not only is this a S#&$ty situation for people like me who really like the Vectis but don't have Primed Chamber, but it is incredibly &!$$ poor design over all. This isn't even up for debate, a +100% damage boost for a weapon being set as a very rare event exclusive mod is some of the dumbest design in an online game ever, EVER. Right now to me Warframe is currently P2W in a horrifying way. If i want to use my favorite gun in a meaningful way I would be forced to pay for it, and for an exorbitant sum at that. The only two possible solutions I can see for this issue would be: 1) Remove Primed Chamber from the game, Charged Chamber is enough (the best solution balance wise IMHO) 2) Make Primed Chamber no longer event exclusive (mob drop/transmutation/nightmare mode/alerts) ... Ah who am I kidding. Primed Chamber has been a problem ever since it was released, and this issue has been brought up before. Nothing will change. After all, it sure does feel good to see people racking up 5k-6k platinum just to buy 1 mod, huh? Those other people who can't afford or refuse to pay that much? Well screw them, they don't deserve to be a proper 1-shot sniper. You aren't saying it, but it sure is implied. I love your game DE, but you sure do love to hate me and my favorite play-style. It's incredibly frustrating to know that if I use the Vectis, it is a gimped gun because I don't have Primed Chamber or 5k+ plat to burn. As a totally unrelated side note, please fix all the crashes? I just had my 7th crash near the end of a mobile defense/survival mission in the past 4 days, losing all my progress, and it hurts... a lot.
