Sarmon Posted November 13, 2014 Share Posted November 13, 2014 (edited) NOTE: I'm not going to comment on how terrible the LoS changes will be at all. I'll comment on the fact that they were unreasonable and not needed in the first place. Reputation is introduced and the gain is painfully slow. Reasonable for a new player, but infuriatingly boring for a veteran. What do veterans do? Find the most efficient way of getting reputation and thus the viver farm was born. People noticed how efficient Viver was and [for whatever reason] complained about this, and [for whatever reason] DE listened to them instead of doing anything about the root of the issue: Syndicate reputation gain. Viver had nothing to do with this. It was efficiency of farming. So DE nerfed some warframes and made points not possible to be neutral. Not sure if these changes are very major or not as I have not tried them yet. So what exactly happens next? We get no more Viver farms? Probably, yes. But what else? Someone finding another efficient way of farming reputation. DE introduces something new? Someone will find an efficient way of farming it. So, just because someone finds a very efficient and easy way of getting things, we have to have our gear nerfed in a game with infinite level of enemies? This is the message I'm getting from what DE is saying, right now. Syndicates will just be shoved aside for some people and they'll tell their friends how boring gaining reputation for them is and Warframe gets even more bad reputation in addition to it's already bad reputation due to RNG. I'm not calling for the changes Rebecca talked about to be reverted. I'm simply using logic and reason to express my point of view on this whole situation and hopefully make DE think and read through more than just one complaint thread and make changes according to it. [because that's exactly how at least I see this whole situation] It's pretty late and I'm pretty tired when I'm posting this, so there may be a mistake or a flaw here and there but I think I managed to get my whole point across in a simple way. Edit #1: Just checked the changes to abilities. They didn't affect as many warframes as I thought they would. Either way they were not needed just because a single complaint over one node's farming efficiency. Edit #2: Here's a strawpoll that someone has made about this whole issue in another thread http://strawpoll.me/2981456 [VYR3 linked this in this thread] Edited November 13, 2014 by Sarmon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
