FATEdPondera Posted October 20, 2014 Share Posted October 20, 2014 I've been looking over the forums lately, and, seeing as how some people are hyped for Archwing, some don't care, and some hate the hype, I wanted to get my own questions out there before the wednesday update of +1 hype. I am somewhat concerned, myself. If this is done wrong, it could be more a chore than a fight. The first question I have is are the archwing models going to be able to be modded themselves or are those mods going to fit on the warframe itself? I have misgivings over modding a warframe for either optimal infantry combat or optimal space combat. Like, if we're able to just ACE infantry combat, but in space, we die horrifically from an extraction gone wrong and lose everything? That'll probably make some people, including me, very angry. Second, are we going to be able to use the weapons we carried into the mission with us? In the demo videos I saw, Excalibur was slicing things apart in repetitive looking sword combos with a weapon that looks like a car door. Is that weapon a place holder? Part of the archwing module itself? Something Excalibur found floating around in space? I'd think that an Orthos Prime or a Galatine would be able to be used just as well in space as it would on the ground. In fact, I think it's in the Serro's codex file that its original purpose was slicing up starship hulls. While we're at it, are stances going to be able to be used in space? I know there's no gravity, but the idea of not having any control over our weapons and using dynasty warrior style repetetive attacks causes me some distress. Do not really want. Third, there's been a lot of talk about abilities lately, but... are we going to be able to them in space? When subjected to a vacuum from a shield polarize gone wrong in a corpus ship tileset, abilities still seemed to be able to function. Obviously, someone like Zephyr is going to have kind of a hard time of it (no wind in space), and, unless her flames are self-oxidizing, Ember isn't going to be of much use....and Hydroid's tentacles need a surface to burst out of.... How exactly are you going to make this work, DE? The ranges involved (space is big), the style of movement (jet packs on our butts), even the environment (no gravity) clashes heavily with everything that Warframe has become thus far. Now, don't get me wrong. This is not a thread screaming that the archwing will suck. I'm not that pessimistic. However, I do issue a very confused and concerned.... HUH.....?!?!?
