A post from yesterday on the Warframe forums has sparked up a bit of a debate among the third-person sci-fi shooter’s community. To bring any newbie up to speed, Digital Extremes’s Warframe is in a constant state of Beta and the community is very involved with the process of updating the game, which is why the post titled “Rework the Rework(ASH)” got so popular.
The OP, LordZonEscquire, claims that the frame Ash is simply no good after he was reworked back in November of last year. LordZonEscquire brought some ideas to the table, but one was particularly of interest to the rest of the community. He proposed that Ash’s fourth ability, Blade Storm, should revert back to its original state but with a few minor changes. Back in November when Ash was reworked, there were changes to three out of four of his abilities. By far the most controversial change that came out was Blade Storm.
Back in the day, Blade Storm was a “press 4 and win” ability where the Warframe would go on a murdering spree, flipping around the map to different enemies to deliver killing blows. The player could simple sit back and watch the kills rack up, hands free. Now, players must specifically target the enemies they wish to attack, each one costing a certain amount of Energy depending on the mods on your build. Some players hate the new change while others say it prevents “random bladestorm spam” like one of the comments on the forum post. There must be some kind of middle ground though, right?
What do you think? Is the Ash rework fine the way it is or should he be reverted back to the way he was? Maybe you side more with commenter Kyronz, who just wants to see Ash receive an entirely new fourth ability instead. Let us know in the comments below!
