Tentatively Start Playing Sanctuary Onslaught Now

The other day, I suggested avoiding Sanctuary Onslaught because the mission was, to put it lightly, a mess. Luckily, the following update fixed a large number of problems. The game mode is pretty playable now, way better than it used to be. Enemies spawn properly now, a lot of the random crashes were fixed and the whole efficiency problem is better than it used to be. And the rewards are a bit better now. The chances of obtaining both Khora and the Lato and Braton Vandals is still astonishingly low and the Synthetic Eidolon Shards are still an utter waste… [Continue Reading]

Bumps in the Datascape, or why it’s worth waiting sometimes…

“Wow, Larunda’s busy today!” Volt exclaimed as he and Frost watched fellow Tenno go by. “I thought the Void Trader was at the Kronia relay?” “He is!” Frost tutted. “Everyone is coming here because they want to speak to Simaris and it’s slightly less busy here compared to Kronia.” “I know…” Volt shrugged. “I just assumed everyone would go to Kronia, kill two MOAs with one stone, right? Saves on fuel as well.” Frost glanced at Volt. “You have twenty million credits to your name and you’re worried about fuel costs?” “Hey, being careful is how I managed to get… [Continue Reading]

Plains of Eidolon – First Look

The Plains of Eidolon update is here, and it’s pretty fucking big. It’s also rather laggy and buggy and messy, since over 100 thousand players are playing Warframe (via Steam) as I type this. Goodness knows how many more are playing via the standalone version. In this article, I’m going to give you a first look into the Plains of Eidolon. There’s… a handful of problems. Just so you know, SPOILERS ahead. Firstly, nodes have been moved around. Cetus, the town relay and hub, and the Plains of Eidolon are essentially the 4th place on the Star Chart and you… [Continue Reading]

Weird things that happen when Warframe gets laggy

Lag is a universal thing. Everyone can get a bad internet connection simply because we’re lazy, cheap beings who can’t ever do anything properly. Luckily for me and my shitty connection and overall bad location in general, Warframe is actually somewhat playable, even up to 300+ ping. Which happens sometimes, because each mission is peer-to-peer, rather than it all being hosted on one server. That being said, strange things can happen when your connection starts bouncing around. Doors Stop Opening By far the most common issue is when doors, which are reliant on the host’s connection, start to falter. At… [Continue Reading]

This is going to be slow and painful…

Well, I’m really not having fun. Not at all. One of the most fun things I’ve had today is adding endless categories on a free classifieds site for a client I’m building. And that was boring as fuck. I think only one thing has really made me smile tonight. What problems am I having? Tons. I have a contract for Carnival of Doom. It wants me to burn people to death. Alright, let’s look for a server running the map. I refuse to use Quickplay, but the Server Browser keeps on throwing me a Server Not Responding error on most… [Continue Reading]
