Oh yeah I wasnt serious, I spent it because I was enjoying it (but maybe that was the great friend experiences more than the game.) That has ended so abruptly it is nuts.
Dont regret the well over a grand I put into digital extremes (Warframe) back in 2013/2014. That game makes me proud of that company even though I havent seriously played it since 2014 (PC version though.) I have gone back just to see how much has changed, and it hasnt just changed...it has so much more in it that it is overwhelming even for me who had achieved grandmaster rank 14 (highest at the time) with every suit, and weapon (including all clan weapons) with 4-6 formas in each. I played the heck out of that game and it wss glorious.
2018 started off that same way for me, downloaded Dreadnought not really sure how I would feel...(had seen Botimegaming's couple of dreadnought videos way back)
Mid January I actually started to play and it has been THE game Ive played all year. Minor break for some Farcry 5 coop shenanigans.
A balance needs to be found...cannot have NO skill gap, and squad only queing demands, and buffs/nerfs to make solo play competative with a squad. I stream Dreadnought basically everytime I play...well....before October, not worth trying with bluescreens stopping broadcasting.
I know I have a harsh opinion, more so right now with how things seem to be going, but Im blunt and straight forward. I try to remember to say GG with a win or a loss and try to answer peoples questions ingame or on stream if they are inclined to ask me. I have worried over the new player experience way back in march/april/may with the balence of some things, which by the way a new tier split wont fix things...just relocates the problem. Lotta T4 ships have real doody starting modules just like T3 does.
I cant find myself trying to recomend the PS4 version at all. The focus is STEAM, which is great to finally be on there. But when every update or change is due to PC metagame and such...why bother on PS4. GUI is clearly designed for pc, which is why its so unwieldy on PS4.
The list goes on and on....feel like a socal FGC player giving feedback and Japan only listenin to Japan.
And thank you for you sincere response, quite frankly not expected after my inital post.
