    Can't find a thread about it.

    Awesome Game, just downloaded this morning and started playing it.

    Anyone else look into this Free Game?

    If you don't know what it is, it is a free-to-plauy 3rd peron online shooter.

    I seem to like it.

    And just in case people want to know how the F2P element works:

    All players will begin their journey with 50 Platinum. This valuable currency can purchase equipment that greatly increases your strength. You can use it to acquire a rare Orokin Catalyst or Reactor, which supercharges your equipment and unlocks its maximum potential. You could also try an Affinity Booster which doubles the rate your equipment ranks up for 72 hours. Platinum can be used to expand the amount of space available for you to Store Weapons and Warframes, and is also used to recharge your Warframe's ability to Revive itself. Platinum cannot be found during missions, so think carefully before you spend it. You can click the Buy Platinum heading to open your internet browser and purchase additional Platinum to help you in Warframe.

    Reviving:

    Each Warframe has the power to self-revive 4 times every 24 hours. If you run out of revives, you can wait until the next day for them to automatically recharge or consume Platinum to receive them right away. If you choose not to revive in a mission, your Warframe is not destroyed and will still survive to play other missions. Learning when to use revives and when itís worth simply forfeiting a mission is all part of playing Warframe!

    There doesn't seem to be much love for this game on Eurogamer. I play this a lot, I am in a small clan and we've build all the various research rooms. We're currently running orokin and tower missions for prime and corrupted mods.

    The grind is strong in this one.

    It's fun for a quick bash but it feels like a beta product, it needs some work before it can expect a decent following IMO. It's a shame really, I like the aesthetic and the whole cyborg ninja thing.

    I'm usually playing this on PS4. Yup the grind is strong. Only completed half the planets so far.

    There is a discount as it's a new year sort of deal. Also with the daily log in rewards, once you hit 7+ days one of the rare rewards is upto 75% discount on platinum

    New PC update , no idea when the PS4 will get it

    Also some of the endgame ideas are pretty good, clan controlled areas etc

    Haven't received a daily discount reward yet and have logged into the game since the ps4 was released. The Bastards :)

    The alternate hats, well was tempted to buy until I realised you can get their blueprints via the Alert missions. So I can wait for what i want. Main use for the platinum was to buy extra slots to store my warframes or I was building a weapon and wanted it now :)

    Just managed to get the Stalkers scythe blueprint. Will beat him one day.

    The glaive is always fun when you add the extra bounce mod, then see how walls you can bounce it off after you have thrown it.

    The semi auto shotgun was good but my current favourite is the Cestra. It's a machine gun pistol(secondary weapon) modded with multishot, 85 round mag, increased fire rate and pistol ammo mutation.

    Good run through on the Tower II Exterminate the other night Jim - don't forget to build a clan key so you can grab some of the research blueprints.

    Unfortunately most of the clan tech needs a forma to craft.

    The Cestra is fun to use. Make sure you have pistol Ammo mutation, it burns through ammo in seconds. Extra magazine plus fire rate to help reduce spin up time( takes a seconds or 2 before going full auto crazy, I just use it in a burst style ). Using a lethal torrent mod (multi shot plus fire rate)

    Just starting to build the Stalkers Scythe like weapon, just levelling up some knuckle dusters for the Ps4 trophy. Think I will add the bio lab in the PS4 EG clan dojo, want that synapse weapon

    Also build Nyx warframe, loving her abilities so far. Her Aura mod slot is same polarity as energy siphon mod. So a max ES mod on an Unranked Nyx gives you 14 points straight away

    It's quite fun, but outside the running, the gunning, and the melee, I'm finding it damn near impenetrable. Outside of the combat tutorial, there is a miniscule attempt to explain all the crap the menus throw at you. Reminds me a lot of of Dust 514 in that respect.

    Yes took me a while to get into the dojo that first time, I can also see the oxium grind being a pain in the backside.

    The Rhino is a great frame, being able to run around without getting hurt is always fun. :)

    I had no idea you could get that much plat for a serration.

    There is a lot of stumbling across things in this game, I agree.

    Hornet strike is pretty good got mine to rank 5 I believe. You will need the lethal torrent( increased fire rate and multi shot) and ice storm( extra magazine capacity and cold damage) mods. I Really need the faction damage mods for my secondary. Only got the infested damage mod for my pistols.

    Know they were talking about cross platform account migration once PS4 is patched to same version as PC. Wonder if there will ever be cross platform play, could help with swapping mods. Keeping some spare rare mods for EG PS4 players, same as blueprints I don't need.

    I think handholding is when a game goes beyond just explaining the core concepts.

    Warframe tells you some of the controls and well that's about it. The game could do a much better job of telling you what things are and what to do with them, if it wasn't for other people I was playing with I'd have given up because I had no idea what the hell was going on :)

    I don't mind the lack of handholding. Exploring the game's mechanisms and working out for myself what does what and why is quite refreshing. I've Googled things like "best secondary weapon" a few times, but generally the answers suggest that the weapons are fairly balanced and you can't really go wrong, so just choose the ones that fit your playstyle.

    Between 200 and 300 for Rank 10! But those last two ranks are insane in their mod and credit requirements - I have an unconfirmed suspicion that it would be easier to get four Serrations to rank 8 than one to rank 10.

    So that's one of my ingame 'projects' :p (Hornet Strike next, actually!).
    Lack of handholding within gameplay can work well when done intelligently and is designed intentionally. Demon's/Dark Souls are great examples.

    But when a game's base menus are so obtuse, when it neglects to explain how to get important minerals without spending real cash, when something as simple as a level select looks like a complicated spider's web looks unbelievably complicated at first glance, when entire menu options are named non-intuitively with no description as to what they do, then the game has failed in it's attempt to avoid handholding player, and instead created a stubbornly obtuse entryway to a dull and generic game.

    With all this, plus generic gameplay and bizarre design decisions (what's the point of melee, when it's weaker than an equally levelled gun?), then why should anyone be expected to part with their cash for the microtransactions? Or even spend serious time grinding without spending money?

    You are right with what you say, yet I still love this game.
