Cold+Shields, Friction+Sliding, Logic?

a couple things just bug me to no end because they defy all modern logic.

 

1) your shields work worse in the cold. this is just backwards. did you know one of the only ways to transfer power with 100% efficiency is with a superconductor? superconductors must be kept at a temperature of absolute zero. so if anything, shields should work better in the cold. 

 

2) you move faster sliding. i dont even feel like you need to take physics to understand the basic concepts of friction reducing speed.

 

 

i dont expect you to make major changes, but really. these things are just nonsensical. 

 

p.s. why do you have modes like no-shields, or reduced shields, when certain frames are designed to have low armor and high shields? you basically single those frames out and troll them.

 

also, why is oberon's midsection all malformed? he looks like an insect.

1) Superconductors are only possible in extreme cold, though not 'absolute zero' as that has not yet been achieved. Shields, however, are not superconductors, nor power transfer devices.

 

They are space magic.

 

2) You move faster sliding because sliding is awesome. Everyone knows speed is directly proportional to how awesome something is. Once we get flame stickers for warframes, then we'll be REALLY fast.

Actually, with shields, it's perfectly reasonable for them to be tampered by the cold. Shielding usually uses heat, or needs heat to generate, so making the cold tamper with it makes sense.

As for sliding, have you not noticed that we don't slide indefinitely? We do slow down to a stop.
Instead of making accusations like that, play and pay attention.

If you treat shield as superheated plasma held by magnetic field, weaken by cold makes sense as It is meant for melting projectiles before it can harm user. Plasma hit by cold increases density and lower its temperature, so other part of shield need to compensate increasing power usage to melt that point again. But how it repel melee? Magnetic field that hold plasma repel iron from weapon and infested body?
