The Plains of Eidolon (yay, another game with the acronym PoE  swamp poop ) info made me fire this up again for the first time in about 4 years. I'd forgotten how addictive it is, if somewhat Sisyphean.

Is there still an f13 clan alive? If so could I get an invite?

It still exists... but is not really alive. It did have most of the weapons researched when I last checked it, so if that is mostly what you are after I could organize you an invite.

I'll be trying out PoE so if somebody wants to promote me to whatever level (currently I'm an "Officer") allows me to do the basic Clan maintenance stuff since I'll be around.

Edit: since

Has this gotten any more solo friendly? I played it around launch (or maybe beta?) and I vaguely remember having a rough time of it.

Yes it's gotten somewhat more solo friendly from the very early days, though depending on what you picked for your starter Warframe and weapons things might still be tougher than they would be if you picked Excalibur as your first frame. But once you get Rhino on Venus after Earth, what you started with doesn't really matter since Rhino is easy mode.

Also you can play public games if you need help but don't have any friends to play with. Many of the low level missions still get more experienced people playing through them so you can just tag along to complete them. And asking for help with bosses on chat works pretty well during the busier times*.

* Tip: you can change your region freely from settings if the population is low in your closest region

I don't really like playing with randoms, so public groups don't do much for me. I have no idea what frame I picked, or even if I used my Steam account to play.

Some of the bosses may be tough as a solo newbie so you should at least consider teaming up for that stuff.

I soloed almost all of the early and mid star chart stuff back in the day as Mag ACK! awesome, for real (and she's still my most used frame because of that) so it's definitely doable with enough patience.

I mostly played solo, and most of the mission content scales down to solo quite nicely. Moving primes from set missions for each piece (tier 4 defence was hard solo) to being able to select the mission type you wanted to run for that same piece helped a lot. It used to be fairly rough at the start if you picked a fragile frame.

I've not played in a while though.

I've been playing for close to 12 months and have hit MR 22 mostly solo.

I've been doing a lot of forma to set up my frames - currently Limbo is great for annoying other players and I've gone back to Nyx primeto create a terminator invulnerable build.

While I have all frames (minus Excal prime) mastered, I keep going back to find new things in the game. Archwing is shit and has cockblocked me to finish opening up some planets

There's an Archwing Launcher segment you'll need to install in your foundry and then craft in order to summon your Archwing on the Plains. The Launcher segment is either researched in the Dojo or purchased on the market. You'll need to gather a bunch of resources from PoE in order to craft the launcher so you won't be able to bring down your Archwing immediately.

My ship still has Christmas decorations up. Head scratch  Does anyone know what the "good" warframes and weapons are these days?  I have Rhino so I know I can basically do everything with him but I'm wondering about some of the newer ones.

Oh, and free stuff too.

Initial impressions:

* Match making/grouping is broken/buggy. First "bounty" mission as a solo "public" player right after it went live worked as you would expect where I got auto-matched with 3 other public players and we did the bounty stages together (each bounty has multiple stages you have to complete to finish the entire thing). Currently, however, I only ever can play solo as a solo public player -- it never groups me with other solo public players. Also reading reports that real groups are having trouble going in together.

* Because of the multiple stage thing the bounty mission description from the quest giver only describes part of what you need to do to complete all the stages. And you might end up with a Warframe or loadout that's ill-suited to complete all the stages in one go. In particular there is a timed defense stage (protect an armored vault) that can be difficult to complete if you aren't prepared for it. Some of the other stages are timed in a bad way -- pay attention to the stage objectives displayed on your HUD, it's not always obvious you are under a time limit.

* The Gara quest isn't very good. Bring Helios to make it faster to complete. Farming for her parts is going to be a pain in the ass too -- you have to do some of the bounties to get the parts and the bounties are typically much longer to finish than the normal part farms for other frames. It's possible, though, you don't have to complete all the stages to get the part to drop. Have to do more testing on that.

* Didn't try the "Free Roam" mode yet but I don't think there's going to be much reason to do it other than to farm for the bazillion new resources specific to PoE that they added. I.e. it doesn't seem like it's going to be an efficient way to farm XP, credits, Endo, or the other non-PoE specific stuff people spend most of their time farming for.

* They did a nice job with the outdoors engine with no noticeable stuttering or annoying pop ins on my system. The map is pretty large but not super huge large.

* The Grineer are pretty damn hard to see in many cases. Bring Animal Instinct on your companion if you have it. It also helps with detecting the loot containers some of which contain the PoE-specific stuff you'll be needing to collect. Helios is also very handy to scan all the new stuff in PoE.

* If you enjoy sniping this seems like the ideal place to do it, as many people were expecting after watching some of previews.

I got a free Frost Prime (with slot), a syandana and some mods when I signed up for Twitch Prime, which was free with Amazon Prime...which had a free 30 day trial. Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?  Also, I found out about Warframe Market, where you can buy and sell stuff with other players for much cheaper than you would in game.

I just created a Warframe account and decided to try it out.  No clue what I'm doing, but seems pretty fun so far.  I tried to get the free Prime stuff, but the game refuses to give it to me.  I've unlinked and linked my account 4 times, relogging each time.  Nothing.  Not a great first impression.

I've relogged several times.  I think Twitch is the problem.  When I click the Claim button nothing really happens.  They just released a new Weapon bundle, and when I click the button on that one it immediately says it's been added to my account and sure enough when I login the weapons were there.  Something janky with the older offer.

Do you have Twitch Prime and link your Warframe account?  I just got a Soma Prime and Scindo Prime (I think, some Prime melee weapon) today in addition to what I got yesterday.  Kind pissed because I JUST traded for a Soma Prime earlier today.

Never mind, I figured it out.  I had to go to Cetus and into the Plains.  I had thought that would be one of the last things I did since it's new.
