I see nothing wrong with this fix.  I had already told several friends of mine how Excavation missions were essentially free loot/xp machines because of the enemy spawn rates even when a drill wasn't present.  I figured it was only a matter of time before a fix like what's listed here came up.

 

As for AFK, I know for a fact that being immobile while using an ability for a long period of time does NOT invoke the AFK penalty.  Otherwise my Hydroid would be in serious trouble.

Well i played a bit more, and i might be wrong but a requirement for stationary ability to keep resetting afk timer is getting kills. So for example mesa's ult might not put you on afk, but mag's pull could if you don't score any kills using it. Same applies to nekros desecrate and Nyx's bubble. Requires further testing.

yaai??

 

Edit: Well played, well played

So E Gate is Dead and still nothing new to do since .. 5 weeks?

No new weapons, no new stuff to farm or grind ..

The dissapointment is big

 

Did you not read the PSA about there being no updates until u16? Only reason we're having one is because U16 is likely in the next week or so.

True, but for example, if I do an intercept and Undertow over the point (an effective way of keeping enemies away from the consoles, there's always a few enemies I don't kill.  Especially in the void where Heavy Gunners and Bombards are quite durable after any given length of time.  So I'm fairly certain ability use doesn't count against AFK, so long as the ability is actually doing something.  A Mag constantly yanking enemies is still doing damage, which means the player is still doing something.

I question your judgement in interpreting the rules, and assert that you have been abusing your power within this thread and have demonstrated a lack of awareness which makes you unfit to moderate.

 

This is not Neopets.  There is a 13+ age requirement when signing up for the forums of an M-rated game.  The forum rules simply state, "keep it clean."  Any logical being would interpret that as keeping language age-appropriate to a 13+ audience, not reducing every discussion to Spongebob levels of sensitivity to the precious little snowflakes watching.

 

Posts like

 

Are completely legitimate.  It's an appropriately voiced discussion over the present and persistent issues within the game.

 

You, however, have gone out of your way to stifle posts FAR more benign than this one.  You are overzealous, slapping warnings on any post that might be considered against the (extremely vague) written word of the forum code in a robotic manner, while completely disregarding that code's intent.  Your actions are not those of someone protecting the forums from malicious activity, but rather a triggerhappy cowboy who has been handed a hammer.

 

 

I suggest you take a step back to refine your judgement.  Improve yourself and become a force for good on the forums.  If you cannot do so, then I would recommend you to resign your position as moderator, and pass the torch onto someone who can appropriately handle the responsibility.

The rules of the forums are laid out here. They are not hard to follow, and they are quite clear in regards to:

- Respecting everyone on the forums (players & developers alike),

- Contributing towards intelligent and respectful discussion,

- Not misleading or "trolling" your peers,

- Not using profanity and inappropriate language,

- Respecting others' privacy,

- And how to handle yourself when you have a complaint about another user (moderators included).

 

Additionally, thank you for bringing the post you quoted to our attention. It was not in keeping with the code of conduct for the forums and has been removed.

 

If you have any questions about the forum rules, warning points or the process of enforcing the rules, please feel free to toss me or any of the other moderators a private message so we can clear up any misunderstandings. If you feel as if any of the rules in particular are vague, too open to interpretation or are not specific enough, please bring it to our attention so we can fix it so that players will not find them too vague in the future.

Although i don`t give a c**p about E-Gate, the afk system is just..." knee-jerk solution to the symptom instead of fixing the core problem "... should of seen this coming more often since the Vivier incident...

 

Edit: 21 rage pages later and still no official presence to do some minimal explaining, only some mods censoring comments (that are probably doing their job)

When is Update 16 coming?

After the devs stop hopping around after they shot themselves in the foot with this latest hotfix.  Probably, could be a week after that though, meanwhile I'm just sitting here, twiddling me thumbs with nothing to do because DE thought putting all of it's egg's in one update basket for a month was a good idea.  When hotfixes are the lifeblood of this game, denying them to work on a big update is going to stifle the community.  They really need to release a semi large update before releasing a major update.

 

"U16 coming?  Ok then, let's give everyone like 4 'new' weapons, several tactical alerts, maybe a new prime weapon to farm, and a quest for them to play in the meanwhile so they don't get bored."

 

How is that hard ^?  That's an example of good game company practice.  In the absence of good updates there can still be decent updates to tide you over.  Also more AFK shenanigans at my expense, did several missions, had to take a call on my house phone because cell was dead, which happens to be one of those corded phones that people used to use back in the, oh I don't know that time period between Now and Still Do?   They act as if everyone has a cordless house phone, not everyone does ok?   Then I come back to find a world of death, destruction and the smell of burnt bacon as I looked on in horror at my desecrated rewards screen.

How feedback is handled can be resumed at one thing : break the rules anywhere, and it's a slap in the face. It's EXTREMELY important for anyone to calm down a bit before making a "unhappy" feedback. If you want to say bad things about the game, at least say it without spitting in anyone's mouth. There's always a way to say clean.

 

Bad reviews in the Feedback subforums are the most common type of feedback, oftenly on the same topics, and so far only inflamatory content is removed. If your post is deleted, you should ask yourself what you did wrong, and not if we are trying to manipulate the community. Because we don't : that's just being paranoïd.

Thank you, DE, for continuously raising the game's grindwall with rank 10 primed mods with no efficient way to farm sufficient amounts of cores to make use of what you gave us.

 

Also, thank you for punishing AFK players, as we all know that AFK means Away From Keyboard, and shooting or using abilities while standing still can be done just using the mouse. Unacceptable! Everyone must love the keyboards!

 

Finally, thank you deeply for caring about these brilliant ideas created to surpass the grindwalls you caringly gifted upon us all. It is absolutely true that an emergency such as this deserves all of your attention here and now. Game-breaking bugs can wait a week or two, since they are not so bad after all, but exploiting a low level mission to get a slightly bigger than usual amount of common mods and resources cannot be allowed and must be prevented with all of your forces.

Hey that guy who explained why the rules are vague, his comment was deleted. Why mods?

 

Also I said it earlier in this thread and I will say it again!

 

You want to fix ALL the afk strats in this game forever?

 

Remove Greedy Mag.

 

Done.

This thread is for patch notes. Not a discussion about the rules. If you read my post earlier you'd see I'm directing users who don't understand the rules to send me (or another moderator) a private message so that any misunderstandings can be cleared up.

I like the fact that exploits and unwanted mechanics are fixed.

i hate how it was done this time.

 

Use a scalpel not a sledgehammer!

Guys please understand patch notes and forum threads are not the place to discuss moderation. If you have questions or concerns you want to bring up then contact an admin (like Reb/Meg/Drew) or another moderator.

When I'm running missions, I seldom find myself standing still. 

 

But now I feel like I have no other choice and am forced to play the game a certain way to get rewards and now even energy.

 

The 'fixes' with Viver were terrible, but this doesn't just affect 3 frames, this affects everyone.
