Innocent_Flower Posted November 11, 2014 Share Posted November 11, 2014 (edited) Warframe has a couple of quests, a few bits of lore attached to items and the occasional event. There's nothing that feels personaly crafted by the player. Update 15 could have done that. We could have made our own stories with the new factions. We could have had intrigue. We could have had missions feel bigger than random dungeons we're spawned in with archwing. We could have had a major stalker overhaul. Examples of what we're missing out on; - Player generated storylines from syndicates. Incentives for betrayal, incentives for loyalty. Differences in dialogue for each player as they rise through the ranks, rise through the ranks by playing another faction. Different dialogue for players who've split from their first faction or only support one faction. Different missions too; A steadfast player would get the missions that only the most trusted would obtain. A traitor or flighty player would get the missions that are difficult and less vital to the cause because they're more expendable. The stalker for each faction would speak to a traitor differently than to a regular enemy. Maybe you could be a mercenary character that never sticks to any faction, undertaking the quests of whoever offers the best rewards. The mercenary getting reputation amoungst all the factions in such a way that they can unlock the missions for high pay without any faction specific rewards. When I first read the red veil description I thought them against corrupt individuals in political power and the damage they do lower down the tree. With them being the enemy of the arbiters and the fact that their leader looks like the stalker I then began to consider that the "corruption" is really the mistreatment of orokin artifacts and cultural separation from orokin ways. - Lower guardians versus lower guardians. The remains of the non-tenno orokin military split between Old ways and the new. I'm thinking lower guardians because the figureheads for these factions both appear to wear an outifit mixed of both human suit and tenno warframe. One side believing the tenno can be forgiven and another believing the tenno right. Prime versus dragon if you will. - (there's a lower guardian model in that case. Stalker gets a visual change so he isn't excalibro with a different helmet) There's so much story in that one conflict. You could learn what happened at the end of the old war from two highly subjective factions (so it'd still be mysterious) DE could also explore other important ideological issues through syndicate conflict like progress/environmentalism with Suda/loka or socialism/capitalism with meridian/perrin.
