Are all the missions just run through corridors and shoot? Id love a good desperate defence mission or something different.
There are indeed defense missions, but the first one doesn't appear for a while.  I forget which planet I encountered my first defense mission on.

You get to defend an object from waves of enemies.  Every 5 waves, you get an option to be extracted and succeed in the mission, gaining a reward.  The longer you hold out, the better the reward.  It's apparently a good way of getting rare mods, holding out for 15 or more waves until getting pretty rare rewards.  Of course, if the object gets destroyed you don't get the rewards.  Until the most recent patch, you did get loot that you picked up, but it seems that in the most recent patch, if you either fail or abort the mission, you no longer get loot.  This was to stop people from running to bosses, killing them, grabbing the drop, then aborting out of the mission in order to save time.

My first warframe finishes baking in 2 days. Its just an Ember but I already feel a lot of pride of ownership after getting all the mats creds and blueprints myself. The game really changes with mobs past L28 or so, just any weapon fired accurately starts to not cut it you anymore.

Have had some really fun moments. The devs seem good and hopefully this is a game I can shelve and come back to as they flesh it out and add more content. I've extracted over 48 hrs from it though without feeling like I needed to spend real cash so my verdict is still good game.

I'm all the way to rank 3 and the Gorgon and have tried most weapons or read about most to that point so if anybody wants advice on that front or anything add me in-game on Hoax415 or pm me here or hit me on steam.

Been playing this all week too. More fun than I was expecting I have to say!

I've been almost exclusively running in PUGs and while the speed running is a minor issue it's easily alleviated by going back and re-running any mission you want solo when you're able if you so desire. Something that's a blessing and a curse at the same time is that because of the frantic pace there's almost no time for people to talk in PUGs. This means a) no internet dickwad abuse from kids and b) no engagement with the less dickwaddy (that's a word now, k?) players.

Trying to fit a good selection of mods into your gear is a fun mini-game although I'm sure I'm doing it really badly and sub-optimally! I purchased a Lanto (I think) rifle the other day and am slowly leveling it up, it's not quite a sniper but heading in that direction. In fast groups I prefer the MK1-Braton but I think that's probably because it's rank 28 instead of the rank 16 my Lanto is.

Quick question about building new warframes - do all the pieces for a particular frame drop from the same boss? I.e. the wiki says that Ember drops from Saturn, does that mean all 3 components drop from the Saturn boss?

All three of the blueprints drop from the same boss, yes.  Each blueprint will require a few pieces, though.  Control Module is required for every warframe's 'systems' piece, and I believe a neural sensors piece is required for every warframe's helmet.  The pieces you'll have to go to various planets to hunt down.  The one exception to this is Banshee, whose blueprints seem to drop randomly as mission rewards.

Cheers. I seem to have 3 of the 4 required BPs for a Volt so I may as well see if I can get the 4th (just need the chassis BP now)!

To get a warframe completed you need to farm the boss and get lucky with him dropping the 3 parts you need (helmet, chassis and systems) once you have those you need to make them. If you are missing resources its probably either the special resource (if you need only 1-3 of it its special) which means time to hit up a boss on a planet where that resource drops (mouse over any planet and you see the resources) and if you just need 700 rubedo or something that means you probably haven't unlocked any missions on the planets/systems where rubedo drops so time to do that.

Once you have the 3 warframe parts baked using your boss drop bp's you buy the completed warframe bp from the marketplace for X credits. Then you use that bp and the 3 made pieces to form one warframe. That final bake takes a couple of days be warned.

I accidentally clicked Mag for my warframe but eh, didn't seem like a bad choice.  I was looking into getting new ones though and while buying warframes is neat, having to also buy slots to buy them is kinda fucked up.
Oh, I just noticed this and that no one commented - it should be noted that it seems that any warframe you buy with platinum comes with a free slot.  They also come with an orokin reactor and all four ability mods, whereas on built frames I do believe you have to gather up the mods from random drops.

Oh, and my name's Mnemnosyne on there, if anyone wants to add me.  I'm liking this and will probably be playing for a while.  Going to be adding the rest of you that've given names too.

Cheers Hoax. I now have all 3 parts for the Volt and am just short a Control Module and some Rubedo, so as you say, time to get round to Europa/Sedna/Pluto.

I also built myself a Wyrm yesterday. Ugly little thing. Doesn't seem to do anything. First mission I took it into, with it at rank 0 and therefore no mods, it merrily fired it's laser rifle at everything in range. Once it ranked up and I started putting mods in it stopped doing anything that I could see. It's at rank 4 now and has Warrior, Crowd Dispersal and Guardian and it never fires it's laser, it never seems to stun mobs and it doesn't seem to give me shields. Are they generally broken or is it just mine?

Edit: Never mind, the Wyrm started being useful. Might just have been a range thing, I upgraded the Warrior precept a few times and it opens fire on mobs just fine now.

Have started playing this and been enjoying it over the last week.  But like Firefall and Planetside I'm not seeing much that would keep me interested once the initial "this is neat" factor wears off.  I'm guessing I'll maybe play it enough to farm up one new Warframe and then be bored of it.

Yeah that's kinda where I am with it atm Thrawn. There's not enough content to keep me interested much longer. If something else comes along in the next week or two (possibly Neverwinter Online) then this will fall by the wayside. Definitely one I'll keep half an eye on though - if it maintains enough success for them to add some meat it'll be worth a re-visit.

Some things that need addressing IMO:

- Lack of content. Speaks for itself, it's repetitive before you finish the 1st planet.
- Group queueing mechanics are b0rked. Trying to get into an alert = constant disconnects until you get lucky. Too often the chosen host is running the game on a 486 with an internet connection made from moist string.
- Cash shop prices are waaaaay out of kilter. 20 for 575 platinum which gets you one pack of dyes and some revives? Lol.
- UI is terrible. Someone mentioned this earlier and they were completely right, it's a mess. Inconsistent, unwieldy and unclear, needs a complete rewrite.

That aside it does have a lot going for it and has decent potential if the devs start to get to grips with turning it into a real game.

Agree 100% on those.  But man, the core gameplay is fun.  The different movement options really do add some cool factor.

That said, if I wasn't playing it coop with a few friends, I'd likely stop soon too.

See for me that isn't a bad thing at all. Because I can stop for awhile preferably leave with a new frame baking and some day/week we can go back, play it for a bit, check out the new shit. The game will be there. The cash shop is hugely reasonable. The only thing the gouge you on is vanity (colors) everything else is a reasonable deal or if its vital to gameplay (potatoes aka Orokin reactor/cells and new frame and weapon slots) are super super cheap. Much cheaper than they needed to make them.

There's no real reason to be turned off of the game except just getting bored after awhile or straight up disliking the core gameplay. This is by far the most well executed not to mention graphically impressive f2p's I've ever seen.

So it's basically the door missions from CoH with the lights turned down and decent gun-play (which is where Global Agenda failed, in addition to soloability). Which is fine really, it's fun shooting the bad mans and collecting the glowing things that drop.

Look forward to playing it with some friends...

I said the same to Hoax last night. Fun little game with potential, but there isn't near enough content to keep me coming back. Running through autogen'd corridors to farm up mats to get better frames to farm corridors faster isn't really something I'm overly interested in.

Most games with this little content have a strong following because they end up letting PvP do the work. I don't think their netcode could handle it. In fact, they really need to revamp their netcode.

Right now I'm using it as a quick little shooter.  A mission takes 20 to 30 minutes so if I want something to do to eat up a little time, it's a pretty fun diversion.

So, basically, it's like the Solitaire of shooters.

future plans:

New mods coming
Able to sort mods by polarity
New frame coming, involves explosives
New missions like survivor are on the table
No plans for mixmatch abilities but plans to add new ability mods for old warframes
Warframe prestige would help guide polarities you want (in the works)
Grineer rollers need some work
FoV bar is gonna be updated
Clan Hall building and upgrading are guaranteed to be in U8 (which is the next big update, no eta)
Gender alts of existing warframes is on the table
Camera Shake is gonna be reduced a bit more, ties into recoil etc.
No time on U8 yet.
Another mention of mastery = warframe slots.
Scindo shaking screen for erryone is a bug, will be fixed.
ALL weapon stats are coming

I bought the snipetron and while it is insanely fun to one shot Grineer, you only get 72 bullets and I don't think any drop as it doesn't use rifle ammo.

It uses Sniper Ammo, which is a drop but different than rifle ammo.

The lack of new weapons to try out is probably what will kill this game for me. This was a game that needs to have a Borderlands-esque weapon system. It would even fit the lore of ancient ninjanauts.

Should we formalize Bat Country since guild halls are coming?  Clans aren't anything I've looked into yet.

Sniper ammo is the purple stuff.  As long as I'm not wasting shots, I generally have enough to make it through a mission.  Two tips:

1) Get the ammo increase mod

2) If you use the magazine increase, don't go above 15%.  That gets you 5 shots, which is the maximum.  Anything else just costs you mod points with no benefit.

I've got the armor piercing and critical hit chance increase on mine as well.  Most everything I can take down in one headshot.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

Came out of a low-level infestation mission with 0 ammo for any weapon and minimal health. I'd really love to upgrade my weapons to something with more bang per unit (or a shotgun) but it looks like you are stuck with the starter gear for quite a bit unless you put some noticeable cash down. And without being able to test drive the weapons it's going to be a pain working out what would suit my style. Even in planet-side 2 you could mess around with alternate weapons and classes from the start so this seems pretty tight.

The more I play the less I like the warframe models. They look less like any sort of armor and more like some sort of oddly shaped, semi-melted, plastic man. They don't come across as cool, especially given the limited palette and no configuration (without $). Being blinded by my own helmet when trying to shoot around corners is also bleh.

Um, I had enough money to buy new weapons after like, three missions. The biggest hurdle was the level requirement(s).

Semi-agreed on the player models though.

I find the level requirements quite high, honestly.  I've been playing a fair bit and am only halfway through level 1.  I found it really odd that you don't get anything unlocked after reaching level 1.
