Warframe (PS4) |OT| - A New Era in the Plains

So uh before I bother to even try and build this damn ship (seriously why is this out so early? It sounds like a mess on PC still) can anyone confirm that the ship parts have rng stats? and if so how they work? The official forum thread makes it sound like here's 3 'houses' and each one is the best in a given stats but weaker in others. Is this all it is? Like high strength, lower dex/int kinda thing? Or if I have say 2 'X' house engines will they have different stats?

Cuz if true with this, and liches and operators etc it really seems like DE have lost their vision and are just upping the skinnerbox aspects. I dunno I haven't really played this since I got the infested operator skin but nothing I've seen this year really makes me want to come back if it's just gonna be uber rng/grind with less and less solo options.

I'm also concerned that there's some quest stuff tied to this mode apparently. I missed out on the eidolon stuff but for the most part can ignore it same with the liches I haven't touched yet but if the new war quest requires this I kinda have to do it I guess.

edit: wow wtf there's separate rivens for weapon variants now? that's kinda shitty for ppl who spent tons of plat for good ones to be stuck with lesser versions. Is there any way to convert them to their prime/syndicate etc versions

no weapon variants each have their own riven disposition. so a tigris riven will still work on a tigris, tigris prime and sancti tigris. however it'll give higher stats on the tigris, lower stats on the sancti tigris and the lowest stats on a tigris prime. so now there won't be any overpowered prime weapon releaes with 5/5 dispositions since they all start at 3/5 now.

Yeah, railjack seems...fine. It has some bugs, but that's nothing new. It is overly complex, I'm not sure how much actual fun it is, but it's something new.

I did my first Railjack mission with friends since my ship is still being built (seriously the wait time on this thing is dumb). And flying above Earth gave me so much joy. Have yet to try to pilot the thing since I'm having to much fun flying around outside. I got a pretty nasty bug while destroying an asteroid base. After I took out the crewship inside I exited out and I literally got stuck inside the asteroid. Had to wait until I died to respawn and fix the issue.

I had to set my matchmaking ping limit to 100. Railjack is nigh unplayable for me any higher than that because stuff is no longer hitscan and the targets warp and jump around too badly. I had it at 175-200 before because the content was perfectly playable since we fight against A.I. instead of each other 99% of the time. Definately going to document any major bugs I find so when DE comes back from break, they can be made aware of them and get on fixing them.

Alrighty. It's think it's time to come back.

I left around June of 2017, so I hopefully have alot of content I can casually go through as i re familiarize myself with the game. My last memory was paying to fast forward ember prime against my senpai frizby 's wishes because it's a silly waste of platinum, lol.

PSA: DE is gonna remove the Rush Repair Drone from the market in the coming hotfix, so stock up now unless you like grinding hours and hours for resources to build a single RJ component.

In other news, RIP Cryophon and we'll now have a whopping 4% chance to get a Vidar Reactor with absolutely shitty rolls at the end of the mission lol

I hope they reduce the resource cost. As of now I haven't built a single RJ part due to it and I'm not sure when I'm going too at the rate of which everything drops.

This is exactly where I'm at. I don't use my RJ because I don't want to waste a ton of resources to build lower level components when I need those resources to replace those parts with something better.

At least I found out how to blink with AW again.

I discovered something very annoying while doing floof hunting that I hope gets fixed as I'm assuming this is a bug. For my controls I set mine back to the classic set-up where melee is on R1 because that's where I like that to be. So they changed the floof hunting menu's to be on R1 so you no longer have to open the gear menu, but in the process of doing so if you have anything else set on R1 that is not ability menu the menu's will not open.
