Warframe – The End of Secura Lecta

Yesterday DE released another glast gambit update this time it had a fix which I didn’t even know about. I never worked any of the syndicates before I started playing again and didn’t do them for probably the first 150 days of starting again. I chose the Perin Sequence as they had Rhino mods and I predominantly used rhino. I was told I should start working on the daily Syndicate missions and make my way up to get the mods. At this point I didn’t even know about the Syndicate weapons and just thought they were new skins for weapons. A few weeks ago me and my buddy started running akkad missions and during them we got told to equip the Secura Lecta as it doubles your credits. I look at it and thought wow I need it and have spent the past week grinding to got it then the below update happened. 

The Credit Boost function for the Secura Lecta has changed. Before, you could get on average 11.6x Credits from kills. This chance has changed and now scales with Mastery Rank. At Mastery Rank 8, you’ll get on average 2x Credits from kills. This increase continues with your Mastery Rank. At Mastery Rank 18 you’ll get on average 4x Credits from kills (capped)

I can see why everyone recommended it as a must have for akkad runs. Fortunately I still don’t have it unlocked so getting it will still double my credit. The issue is the players who have used it and had the 11.6x boost are going to see there credit slashed compared to what they have been getting. Is this the end of the Secura Lecta and akkad runs or just a bump in the road?

Warframe – Gotta Collect Them All

Getting back into Warframe was like riding a bike you never really forget. But as you play through the game and start to collect more and more Warframe and Weapons it soon becomes an addiction. I started out with only one frame when I came back to the game 213 days ago, I am currently missing 1 standard Warframe from a planet and around 8 in total. This is good considering some players have never stopped playing and are still missing several. I also only have 3 Prime Warframes to collect (4 but will never get Excalibur Prime so don’t count that one). Collecting the weapons is probably the hardest part as late game most need forma and I play daily and rarely get one a week. 

There is also other materials like Nitain Extract which is an alert dropped which usually comes once every 5 hours. The hardest to collect is Argon Crystals which only stays in your inventory for a short period of time, you will lose one every 24 hours (I think or all in 24h). It used to drop maybe one in a void run but lately I have been doing a 20 minute survival and getting 5+ with this happening I have been doing a void survival run every time I need some. Not sure if it is a glitch but will soon see as DE patch these things often to help with the longevity of the game.

Warframe – Still as good as it was before. 


So I have been playing Warframe daily for around 200 days and still can’t seem to be bored. People say it’s repetitive and is a constant grind but aren’t all Free2Play games? I have played Warframe since beta and coming back in 2016 was not easy. I remember having several Frames and weapons but upon logging in Selected Excalibur, the Braton MK1 and the Skana which I remember having previously. They were all Rank 0 and the only thing I still had was my Mod’s or at least the majority of them. This didn’t stop me from having fun, I came back as a friend had started playing it and I managed to persuade another to also play again. We played for a week together but the friend who enticed us back decided it was too easy to buy your way through the game rather then grind your way to get your Frame and Weapons. The other that we had enticed was probably having a lot more fun then the two of us as he proceded to advance ahead of is in the few days we did play together. 

Getting through a few mastery ranks and getting my collection of weapons and frames was my main priority at first but I soon started to grind more through the map learning more about how to mod my Warframe and weapons enough to actually defeat the higher level guys and being part of a team rather then playing only for me. 

We have now joined a Clan and I have put as much money into this game as any other triple a title. The main reason for spending real life money was to support the game and also for trading, this game is a grind from the moment you start but collecting Weapons and Warframes is probably as addictive as collecting pokemon on Pokemon Go.
