Aerensiniac Posted May 24, 2013 Share Posted May 24, 2013 (edited) I honestly hate to be the guy to do this, but there is literally no way of sugar coating this. I was looking forward to U8 as the reason to continue playing, as something that breaks the endless farming cycle of doing repetitive no effort **** over and over again, and presents some form of action or challenge that will allow me to re-experience the game and put my maxed out frames to use. Instead i log in and literally the only thing i can do is start producing a guild key for 12 hours just so im able to visit the grounds of my own guild. Really? So im browsing over the patch notes what "the largest update yet" has brought for us in terms of gaming. GRINEER GALLEON (NEW LOCATION SET!)-At last we can reveal the Grineer ships!-Explore vast, rusted chambers evocative of an amazing space-submarine vibe that exudes the gritty bulk of the Grineer Army!-The Grineer ships come with new vicious enemies, hell-bent on dismembering any Tenno intruders.-Lieutenant Lech Kril has been training and this already formidable Grineer boss has new tricks up his sleeve. Farm in rusty ships. OROKIN VOID (NEW SECRET LOCATION SET!)-An exciting new tile-set hidden within a dimensional fold!-Players can buy or loot Void Keys to open up exciting loot runs in the Ancient Orokin Towers.-Explore the hidden fortresses of the Ancient Orokin race!-But beware, these are dangerous places, fraught with traps and guarded by the corrupted remains of past-raiders! Pay or farm for keys DOJO BUILDING (ALPHA)-Brand new tile set with Tenno architecture & design-New set of possibilities for user-created levels begins with our Dojo Building (Alpha).-Clan members contribute resources to fund construction projects to build their Clan 'Dojo'.-Architects have total control of the layout, selecting hallways, junctions and special rooms to build.-Clan members 'vote with their resources', funding the construction to completion.-Note: Expect a few bumps as this is an ambitious new feature for Warframe: player-created levels! We will be working hard to smooth out the kinks and pave the way for amazing player-built future of Warframe!-The Dojo can be accessed by joining or creating a clan. Doing this automatically puts a Dojo Key blueprint in your inventory to craft. Farm for materials DOJO RESEARCH (ALPHA)-Clans can build Dojo rooms that open up Technology research options...-This gives your clan access to an array of deadly new weapons only accessible through the research system.-Clan members collect research samples and pool resources to fund advanced new weaponry projects.-Upon completion, members have access to Blueprints allowing them to build never-seen-before weaponry in their Foundry! Farm for materials DUELING (ALPHA)-Clans can build special dueling rooms to challenge your Clan members to friendly duels!-Clan members can watch the action and cry foul... our small dueling team is eager for feedback and have been careful to balance dueling in a way that only affects the Duels. Farm for materials POLARIZE WEAPON SYSTEM!-Got your gear to level 30? Prepare to Polarize!-With the newly discovered “Forma”, you can now add or swap a Polarity value on your gear every time you reach level 30.-Forma can be purchased or found through Daily Login Rewards, Alerts, or possible Mission rewards for completing missions in The Void. Pay or farm for forma HUD IMPROVEMENTS!-Viewing your party’s stats is now a Toggle option instead of Hold key!-Want to take some fancy screenshots.. WITHOUT the HUD? Now you can! Turn off my hud while farming. WHAT IS STALKER?-We don’t know.. but we’ve heard killing him can garner quite the reward… Farm bosses to trigger a farmable boss which then gives me blueprints in order to farm mats. NEW WEAPONS & GEAR!-20+ new weapons added in this update!-Tenno crafted Kunai (throwing daggers) available in the market for a silent weapon option in your pistol slot.-New Grineer weapons added to the Market including the Machete, Dual Cleavers, and the lethal Vulkar sniper rifle.-By popular demand the Market also now has a single-handed Ether Sword, and Dual Broncos for sale.-As mentioned above, Clan Research brings 9 exciting new player weapons to Warframe, but you need to build your research facilities to discover them!-Energy weapons, Biological Toxins and high-impact explosives are waiting to be uncovered.-In addition to these weapons, there are 5 rare weapons to chase in special drops. Who will discover them first?-New Sentinel Pet available in the Marketplace...the infamous Dethcube!-Looking for blueprint components to build your Frost Prime? Seek out the Orokin Towers in the Void! 20 New exciting weapons to farm with. BRAND NEW MODS!-Sanctuary - Creates a shield around the player when they are reviving fallen allies.-Reach - Extends melee reach by %-Master Thief - % chance to unlock locked lockers.-Insulation - Reduces effect of environment ice on shields.-Rage - Damage done to your health is added to your energy.-Melee Channel - Any energy you expend in casting is added to your next melee strike.-Acrobat - Reduces stamina cost on wallruns!-Hawk Eye - Pistol zoom-Eagle Eye - Rifle zoom New mods to farm for. So like... Dont get me wrong. I really dont want to belittle your work and effort. I would have to be a real ******* ****** *** to say that this was a no effort patch. Far from it. VERY far from it. The sheer volume alone is worth praise, not mention all the elements that finally give a bit of depth to the gameplay. A guild system and base building that is one of the best i have ever seen, a point to stalker, exciting new drops, mods, weapons and what not. That being said: I have spend 2+ months with nonstop farming (cause there is LITERALLY nothing else to do in this game) just to now see more and more farming implemented into it without even looking at the larger issues such as worthless bosses, no difficulty, no loot scaling, no team play, no fix goals to work towards, rng flastered across everything, etc. Its a good patch, and im 100% sure that those who started the game right now will enjoy the **** out of it. As for those who are like me: We are out. See you at U9 maybe, when we have collected enough will to continue farming or some additions have been made to the game that present us with some actual playing content and/or challenge other than farming for farming's sake.
