Update 8 is live.

New tilesets (Grineer ships), locations (Orokin Voids - need keys from drops or market) and weapons. Mostly seems to be about the Clan Dojo though. Needed to research & build some new stuffs. Oh and duelling and the Stalker now drops stuff apparently.

So... anyone still playing want to make a Bat Country clan?

I'm playing some most evenings with Lantyssa still.  In theory she created a clan tonight, but then went straight ahead and broke it somehow so she's not actually in it.  Fun time for that to bug out.   Ohhhhh, I see.

Lol, well done Lant.  awesome, for real

If you do have a working clan I'd love an invite, although it's unlikely we'll see each other cos of my Euro timezone habits.

EDIT: I've created Bat Country. Dojo key in the oven now, 12 hour build. Give me a shout if you want an invite! I'm Apocryphai in-game.

Is there a limit to clan size? I mostly solo, in Australian hours, but I'd be interested to see what the clan area looks like (Kageru in game).

Added & invited you Kageru. I have no idea if there's a limit to clan size, but I doubt we'd get anywhere near it even if there was!

Not sure we'll ever see much progress on a Dojo though - it requires Forma, which is login reward/rare alets/20 plat only.

Guess they needed to come up with more ways to extract cash from people. The game doesn't offer a lot of variety that tempts me to reach into the wallet, or get serious about it, even PS2 was more tempting.

I've been playing on and off for some fps killing action.  Balzek in game.

I've found that during Aussie play times the number of groups in action has really declined.  I'm stuck running old content as I can never find any groups running Earth or Saturn :P

Should be Taveran. Not really sure how the game deals with different levels and whatnot, there's warframe ranks, weapon ranks and some sort of overall initiate rank? does it mess up grouping for others if they're far ahead of you?

I'll add you when I log on again tomorrow, just shut the gaming PC down!

Doesn't mess up group at all to have different levels of warframes, weapons or mastery. You can still only run missions that you've unlocked though, so you're not going to find yourself facing enemies way higher level than you. You might do a lot less damage than someone with rank 30 warframes and weapons, but who cares? :)

Haven't been playing as much as I was before, but I still seem to log in once every couple days to get a mission down.  I can't seem to manage to stick with logging in every day for their rewards, though...I keep forgetting.

By the way, you can actually run missions you haven't unlocked, if someone else in the group has unlocked them.  Just don't vote when the other person votes for the mission, and wait the 1 minute until their vote is chosen.

I haven't played much, due to lack of time, but I still show up occasionally as Noitek, or Noit3k.

Cool, didn't know that. I've now unlocked every mission, so if anyone's hankering after a particular area give me a shout :)

Also got the last Vauban component BP last night and I've got Ash and Trinity baking in the oven currently, which will only leave me Loki and Nyx to collect (oh and Frost Prime, but not bothered about that). Might mean I suddenly lose interest when there's nothing left to Pokemon...

Unless it's an alert you can't actually see, you can vote on locked planets if someone else can start the vote, to speed up the start.   You don't have to wait.

I wouldn't bother busting a gut trying to get Void Keys, seems like they are very rare drops. Since the patch I've played for about 12 hours and not seen a single one. Done a lot of defence & raid missions, which the forums claim are good for Void Keys, and nothing.

Update 8 seems to be for huge clans only, soloists and small clan players need not worry about the bulk of the new content.

Hopefully they'll make it all more accessible soon, the forums are certainly abuzz with complaints.

They're pretty clearly focusing on more things that drop "in theory" but that you really need to buy if you want them reliably.

It also seems that all MMO's trend towards the hardcore over time. Possibly because they pay / play the most, are the most vocal or because the developers figure that's how to extend the content furthest.

The new defense map, a Grineer one, is terrible. The AI spawning/pathing is fucked, they take forever to come to you so you spend ages hunting around for one or two enemies hiding somewhere. I've had it three times in a row on Earth now. I did, however, get a Void Key on the 3rd run! I'll poke people next time I see a few of us online and see if anyone wants to run it with me :)

Also, useful bit of info about sentinels - they prioritise their abilities in the order they're placed in the slots. So, if you want your Dethcube to actually use Vaporize then put it in a slot nearer the top left than the standard enemy shooting mod. If it's in the middle of normal shooting then it considers itself busy and won't use Vaporize, unless you order them so that Vaporize comes first.

Better description (with pics) here.

Vauban is a lot of fun. Frost + Vauban + Saryn on a defense mission = MY EYES! AoE spamtastic, great laugh  awesome, for real

Got 2 void keys now, anyone wanna have a go at them? Would be good to get 3-4 of us.

I've got the Void 1 maps down but haven't started running 2's and 3's yet. So if anyone has questions just ask here or catch me in-game.

Cool, hit me up if you see me on, although this game has social tools that are nearly as bad as MWO's. Did one with tar earlier, was fun, very shiny map! We got Reaper Prime BP.

BTW. Playing this with the Hotline Miami soundtrack on is all sorts of  swamp poop awesome, for real Yahoo!  ACK!

I'm still waiting for the Optional Reset to come online - I dropped some money on the game early on and apparently people were exploiting the optional reset, so it's still down.

Once I'm back up and running, i'd be down to do some stuff.

The purpose of the optional reset being to recover your platinum I assume?

They are still nuts not to have a "training room" where you can experiment with the weapons and frames and decide if you want to put down 10-20$ on it. Or maybe their target market is impatient optimists.

Yeah, I made some purchases under the assumption that there would be a reset when the 'real' game hit, but apparently not.

Yeah, games like this really need an option to try things out. I played it some more despite my overwhelmingly lukewarm first impression since one of my friends got really into it. Then I unlocked the Lex pistol and it fit my play style perfectly - I'm now having 100% more fun and will probably drop a few bucks on it to unlock some pretty colors. If the Lex hadn't lived up to its wiki description or if it was harder to unlock, I'd be a lost customer, one they could have secured for sure if they just let me try out each gun for like five minutes so I could know I wasn't wasting my time.

It's the exact reason I didn't stick with Mechwarrior Online.

Admittedly, I'm not too used to Warframe, but so far I can't say I see much similarity between Warframe and MWO in your complaint. I view it as there being a very large difference between Warframe not having any preview with their weapons and mods versus MWO having trial mechs and easier to get items with a testing ground which does give quite a bit of insight to weapons and mechs. Sure, the trial mechs tend to not be optimal but they're at least available (I view that similar to if WF gave a trial to weapons without mods).
