thegamer118 Posted September 8, 2014 Share Posted September 8, 2014 Speaking as a relatively fresh player, I'll go with what a lot have said here already.. I started out as Mag. Poor understanding and a limited collection of mod's left me feeling very weak and squishy compared to the people around me. I didn't have enough understanding of the game to realise that for the first few ranks I was going to be weak and squishy in any frame, and that I'd need to learn how to effectively build a frame with potatoes, polarities, and elements. Using the logic bourne from experience of 20+ years of gaming, I figured it was "newb" effect and that I just needed to upgrade my gear and everything would be gravy. It didn't occur to me that I could be just using a potentially end game frame from the get go, but needed to improve the mods in it. Then I got the parts to build my 2nd ever warframe, a rhino. i was overjoyed to get out of my squishy mag into anything else. Then, when a combination of Iron Skin and the reflection and vitality mods I'd levelled up to make my mag less squishy made it nigh on impossible for my rhino to drop, I got to enjoy confirmation bias.... obviously the mag was a weak squishy newb frame, because here was the new, non newb frame and I was indestrucable in it. I'm waiting for my next frame to come out of the oven now. I'm sure that, at the start, it'll appear weak and squishy, compared to the Rhino. For many I'm sure that in itself would put them off and send them back to their Codpeice enhanced friend, and it'll take them a long time to realise that they haven't fully understood the way the game works yet. I don't think the Rhino is particularly special, it just a lot less demanding on a player than any frame that comes before or after it, and it's available at a time which makes it prone to appearing like something more than it is.... Some times, its nice not to think, and to play an "ugg bash thump" style role that requires little thought or concentration. Sometimes confirmation bias seems to "prove" that a heavy duty levelled up frame is stronger than a fresh one for any reason other than the fact that it is fully levelled and modded. Sometimes it's a lack of understanding, sometimes its personal preference. From personal experience though, I tend to end up playing with far more loki's than Rhino's.. guys this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
