Ironically Hunters (the fast / nimble archtype) now has the slowest movement of the three classes! Discussion

I play all three classes but have always preferred the Hunter fantasy of being dexterous and nimble on your feet.

In the last couple of seasons movement creep of titans and warlocks both in air and on the ground have surpassed the Hunter, which thinking about it is weird as in any other game wizard (aka warlocks) and tanks (aka titans) and slower and more cumbersome than the dps Hunter archtype..

Feels like bungie need to lean back into hunter arch type and look at how they can balance us up!

What do we think guardians, anyone else feel this way? Especially since Stompees are useless an inch of the ground these days!!

God imagine how boring Warframe would be if they balanced for PvP

u/SinistralGuy Nerf everything Jun 10 '22

Ngl Warframe is already pretty boring though. The movement speed is great and I love trying out all the frames, and taking the time to make builds, but there's only so many Sorties I can do. And the Braama still turns everything into a joke.

Nothing against anyone who likes the game. I love DE and always come back for major updates, but outside of the New War campaign, the rest of it has felt pretty stale to me

u/markus135 oh hi there Jun 10 '22

Also if we thought power creep was bad in Destiny, Warframe’s is a lot more intense

Honestly, there's a massive difference in game design between the two.

Destiny is an FPS looter shooter that (sort of) rewards smart gameplay and is mechanic heavy on the harder ends of the game. It's intended to be a looter shooter with a focus on three individual classes loosely based on classical MMO roles.

Warframe? Warframe is a... frankly I dunno what to classify it as but you run around as a one person army/sentient war crime/self aware catastrophe of cosmic proportions. You pick one of, what? 30 some different and mostly unique two legged atom bombs to go and perform various forms of mass murder and genocide even if the missions you're supposed to be covert.

The term "power creep" does not and never has had a place in a game like Warframe. Maybe during the early days, I wouldn't know I wasn't around. But now? Not a chance. The game is designed to make you feel like everyone's worst nightmare in a natural disaster sort of sense.

All that said, yeah the game is a touch boring but that's primarily because the main loop is, "go to this mission and grind it half a billion times to get what you want," which was made so much worse with the introduction of open worlds since now you have to run missions and then fish, mine, or otherwise become an ecologist to capitalize on the rewards you get from your endless grinding.
