IANOBW Posted October 21, 2014 Share Posted October 21, 2014 (edited) I suppose I'll start saying that I cannot wait for the new update: the archwings look like great fun and the new sigils (if they are indeed released in u15) look amazing. However, one thing I'm dreading in this coming update is the change to ability mod slots. While I'm all for the removal of them from the drop tables (should have been done before, tbh) removal of them from the game entirely is a whole other situation. Firstly, we will be losing two stots, not a big deal seeing as we now have access to all 4 powers. However this now means we now lose any forma'd symbols in those places. Granted we do get our forma back, but people who spent time optimising their personal builds are going to be a little sad to see those hours dissapear into nothingness, being told that it was all a waste of their time. The second point, and my main concern, that I'd like to put out is the change in personal builds. We all have different playstyles, and we match those playstyles by the frames we play and the powers we chose to use and optimise capability. From u15, this individuality will no longer exist: with access to all 4 abilities, theres no need to optimise. Just make everything good. Remember the times (back up until u10 ended, maybe) when the best melee weapons in game were simply the ones that had all 3 (at the time) elemental mods and either had the fastest or stongest hits, like the dual zoren or the galatine? Cookie-cutter. Good at everything. No need to change. This is what I fear this new change to the mod system will bring. I could be overreacting about this, but it does have me worried that there will never be as much personality in terms of playstyle with frames any more. I hope there are some of you out there that feel the same way, and that I'm not alone in thinking this could kill the game a little. Thanks for taking the time to read this. TL;DR - read 3rd paragraph "The second point...", possible death of individuality/creativity in builds on U15 release.
