U18 [Spoiler] System: Eta On Changes.

Recommended Posts

Im a bit disappointed hear we will not get the focus changes this year but alot of content has been released and the year is closing so its understandable.

 

Im very courious about this prototype though but also a bit worried about the "twist".

Sad to hear that the caps will stay, but I can appreciate the reason for maintaining them.

 

Will we be seeing re-balancing of any ability costs, effects, and timers? Both passive and activated?

Well at least we now have a vague time frame...

 

If possible, give us a little hint at what the prototype may be?

here's me just hoping that it's not tied to Affinity at all, and instead tied to completing Challenges, completing Objectives, successfully completing Missions, performing out of the ordinary actions (so Killing Enemies or w/e in non-conventional ways and such), Et Cetera.

 

some Points for Killing Enemies but not related to Affinity is acceptable - generic Enemies being worth none at all, and the more special / out of the ordinary the Enemy, the more points worth.

 

 

and ofc anything that isn't global, sharing. everyone completes Objectives technically so don't need to share things like that, but sharing special Challenges, points from Enemies and whatnot - definitely important.

These prototypes are a tad too volatile in their current state, and we don't expect to roll them out until early 2016. We're sorry for any frustration this causes, but we need more time to get the prototype shippable.

At least tell everyone what are you considering and why instead of secretively putting nigh random values hoping for it to work.

 

Bruteforce might have 100% chance to succeed eventually, but the timeframe we have is much less than infinite.

At least double Focus point gain. This "stealh" runs for the daily cap is seriously annoying even with 2x affinity.

Take your time with the new system. Make it right, don't worry about shipping it quickly. :3

 

We'll wait for the dealings with the Focus Cap as well, we can be patient. ;D

 

An idea I had was for a Focus Lens Distiller, one we could maybe purchase in the same way we get Arcane Distillers. I'd hate to lose Greater Lenses because of this.

the earning points - the way and how - need a litle work. thats for sure. To be blunt I'm super happy to get/ use focus. but the complexity of it worries me. I was expecting something more sophisticated. not on PoE lvl but more flexible and in a way something that can be mixed (one path with another) - that can be called " personal build"

I would have liked to get more information than "yeah we are doing stuff" and a vague time frame.

 

We are already aware you are working on Focus to improve it.

 

at least tell us what you consider

Glad to see you are working on some changes. Efficiency in earning points only being achievable in solo is certainly the biggest flaw in this system.

Good news to hear. I don't mind the caps, we'd all be done with the content by now without them. Let's face it, working such changes them having the playerbase finish it that fast would be unbearable. Then there';d be complaints of no good content endgame.

 

As it is now I farm up the points with ember, and then go on my way and do things like sorties and core farming.

 

I was wondering, would it be possible to farm up lesser amounts in other schools. Like the first school you get past 25k focus in you can get to 75k focus. In every other school that day you can get 25k focus.

 

I am working on zenurik and madurai. I see a lot of problems and potential in both of them, but I'd like to invest more in both instead of just farming for one and putting the other on hold. And of course, I think everyone wants to be maxed in all schools at some point.

I just really want to be able to toggle Focus affinity conversion on and off. I put lenses on Warframes and now when I log in I am obligated to play a certain Warframe in order to progress in the path I want. I wish it was more like Syndicate Sigils that I can put on/take off so I can play the way I want.

Gonna assume this isn't the place to discuss issues, so: Thank you for the heads up, and y'all have a good end-of-2015!

OK so the focus earning will be changed, but is there any re balance of the ways or the values in them on the horizon?
