Chroma, The New Dragon Frame (Teased In Devstream 45, 46, Tennolive) Anticipation Megathread

Recommended Posts

Hmm very conflicted. Not thematic like Mesa. Not smooth alien first gen like Loki.

Here is what I think.

This is a LORE FRAME. The reveal of the Sentients and the new Lore Cephalon that will apparantly involve this warframe, and the fact that the whole back of the warframe looks nothing if not INFESTED, we have a clear theory.

The Chroma will bridge the Lore gap from Rhino Prime Codex, and tie into the creation of Excalibur and the infestation and Gholems.

When further connecting to the new reworked Gholem and the Mios, infested weapon, I take all this as evidence that we will get alot more knowledge as to what a Tenno and a warframes REALLY is.

But still, it looks like it predates Excalibur and is a Proto-frame. If this is its Lore, I will be thrilled.

Honestly, Chroma's "ugliness" is mainly coming from the pose of the picture everyone keeps posting and making parodies of. As someone once said in a previous post, I think the actual head is what's below the supposed anteater extension. If you think of it like that, it's like Chroma's wearing a Dragon Headdress, and he starts to look pretty good.

I guess a grand majority of us will start by procuring an alternate helmet for Chroma before actually working on getting him.

We don't need to buy a color palette to change the skills. You are completely off point.

 

Also, we don't need to change the entire look. Just the energy color.

Anyone else getting a Sol Badguy vibe off of Chroma? Dragon Install style buff please.

An Ancient and an anteater had a baby who obviously loves hot candle wax in all the colors of the rainbow.

AND yes it definitely has a Lephantis/infested Ancient look to it.

Finally, if you want to post Sea Horse pics with the name " dragon" in it...if you want to reach for it, then go ahead...

Personally I really like its look. I think that the head could probably do with a bit of changes (it does look a tad silly), but overall I like the biological look of the frame. 

 

It's funny though, people complained about the recent frames "Too many clothes/armor and not enough 'biological armor' stuff!" and now people are complaining "Too much 'biological armor' stuff and not enough clothes/armor!"

Ive never seen people complain about armor. Ive seen people complain that mesa is a clothed warframe when warframes are supposed to be exo suits, mechanical, you know, armor and not a bunch of scraps wrapped around it.

Wayyy too much detail on this frame. Is it even a frame?

 

This frame looks like a tenno without a suit. Infested and corrupted flesh, It shouldnt be called a suit.

The amount of people missing the point is impressive, even by the usual "standards" for the forums.

So, I can choose all damage types with basic colours?

But let's say I like blue energy, now I do Magnetic damage and I am ineffective against anything without shields.

^ The point is, visual / cosmetic choices will affect gameplay, for some people "use a different colour" is not an acceptable response.

You can ignore it, I'd hope DE would be smarter.

I'll withhold judgement till I see his alt helm. That may save my opinion of him.

Just remember you can always 'quick' switch from color sets.

Also remember that 'red' or 'blue' has a big variety of colours.

 

But i guess the only awnser to this could be deal with it or use another frame.

 

My personal opinion? Stop being such a picky c---.

This/These can hardly be called wings

I don't think dragons keep their wings extended all the time....

If he wasn't advertised as a dragon frame I am sure people wouldn't have minded the design too much.

 

Though I admit that even dragon thing aside, the mix of Ash, Vauban and Zephyr isn't very appealing to me.

Hmm could be going with the addition of underwater tileset. So Dragon community concept merged with a DE major tileset addition, I can see that.

LOL at all teh butthurt n00bs that got a hard on for DnD dragons and then got S#&$ on by DE when they released this glorious frame

 

H8rs gonna h8

 

:^)

 

I don't care about DnD. My main concern is that the first thing that popped int my head when i saw him was "red-tinted swanp thing." That really shouldn't be the case. If they wanna avoid the traditional european dragon that is fine, and I think that it is a good direction, but this doesn't really represent any kind of dragon. Now if they said "lol jk this is a swamp thing frame not a dragon frame." then i would be sooooo hyped, but until then i'm stick with the opinion that this design does not really embody the concept of "dragon."

 

It bares resemblance to an eastern dragon. It's the elongated mouth. Is it overly narrow to the point that it's not that recognizable? Quite, but I can still see the resemblance. What a lot of people were expecting is a Western-style dragon in a game where you play as a character that has its culture heavily influenced on eastern culture, which makes no sense when referring to a cultural depiction.

 
Nope, I see a seahorse as well. TBH I really wanted an eastern dragon but this is a seahorse/swamp thing.

They went to an extreme on both ends. Why didn't they make something in between?

What I have learned from Chroma reaction is that there are a lot more fanboys than i thought there were, let me explain.

If this concept was made by somebody in the concept art subforums then the concept would get boo'd so badly that the moderators would be forced to lock the thread.

 

However, because it came out straight from DE/Mynki it's suddenly praised with "Wow, very unique", "Amazing design", "This is art!".

 

I'll add this as well.

Oh no my incredibly vital energy color! The entire game is ruined and the devs are idiots!

 

 

Deal with it.

He honestly looks better in this picture than in his preview image. That pose he does makes it hard for those to see his actual face below the giant flamethrower sticking out of his head when he's looking downward. =/

 

 

If he wasn't advertised as a dragon frame I am sure people wouldn't have minded the design too much.

 

Though I admit that even dragon thing aside, the mix of Ash, Vauban and Zephyr isn't very appealing to me.

And Limbo was criticized for not being ambiguous enough with the theme it went with. Point being, the design was going to get ragged on regardless.

Take a good look at the rest of its body and now look at the infested. Thats an infested tenno i tell ya.

Ya, that was the first thought I had when I saw it, Infested like art style. And I LIKE it. Might be In the 1% that likes the design. But I also noticed the new glaive and that new weapon have infested like art. I get a feeling we might be seeing a lot more infested art in future

Chroma's art style is rebellious. ;D

 

It's like it wants us to accept the ugliness. ;D

 

It wants us to look past its ugliness because it is a Tenno too. ;D

 

We shouldn't reject and deny people based on their appearance. ;D

 

This gives you a good idea how mistreated the Tenno were during the Orokin Era. They were treated as ugly monsters and Chroma best represents that as proven by you all.

 

Beneath all the Warframe is an ugly monster that wants to be accepted by the world around it. o 3o But No~ They have no one but each other. ;)
