Firefall updates players on missing items following patch 1.6

    
12

The most recent Firefall patch had some significant issues when it first went live, but those issues are still being sorted out now. Players were not properly compensated for the modules that they had before the major system update, and the first fix turned out to not work as intended. So the team is trying again, bringing up the pre-maintenance database, running scripts, and awarding players a new set of compensation packages.

Compensation is also planned for epic prototype cores that players previously held. Kanaloa weapons are also not salvaging properly into Titan tokens, so the developers will be awarding tokens to players who owned these weapons while allowing salvage of said weapons for lesser amounts. It’s proven to be a rocky road for the studio getting players back up to speed after the patch; hopefully the latest round of compensatory gestures will settle things for good.

johnmynard It was a disaster and many players were lost. No amounts of sugar coating can make up for the complete clusterfu%^k this patch was.  The players saw what the owners did and they dropped this mess like the sack of poo it is. This game has been around what… five years.. longer? They foresaw these changes as being necessary and this was what they came up with? Really? With a straight face you want to pat them on the back for this turdstorm of a game. No amount of Cristite powered Melding repulsors will ever bring back the player base after this mess. I deleted it and moved on.
I just look back on occasion I check the Steam Charts to watch the corkscrew into oblivion andW to see the apologists hard at work for the incompetents at Red 5.

Firefall is still a thing? If so, great! I was a friends and family alpha, and later a beta tester and even spotted Red5 some cash because I loved the game so much. But then they did some odd things to crafting, removed recipe drops and the development direction headed off into the horsewater latitudes…
I uninstalled the game, but vowed I’d keep my eyes on it to see if things picked up again.
So Current Firefall Players: how goes the state of the game?

Jackasa I think we’ll get the big picture when crafting is back in and the two high level zones back. Might take them a few more months but yeah I´m enjoying what’s currently there

TheChiefTurtle ZenDadaist Timing and broad themes, mostly. Yes the two are very different at a granular level, but they are both 1st/3rd person fast-paced action combat in a sci-fi setting. And WF is new to us so people haven’t had their stuff taken away/nerfed/altered. 
Mind you WF kills my hands >.> The price for full-pelt bullet-jumping into a sword spin then zig-zagging up the walls in order to leap down and seismic shockwave everything off its feet. All in the time it takes for most other MMOs to go 1 GCD…

ZenDadaist I don´t get it how Warframe is often brought up as an alternative, it has no open world only the combat is kinda similiar. There really is no game out there like Firefall.

Well… it’s something at least. Not yet enough for my friends to want to log in or put any time into it though. So we’re all playing Warframe instead.

And here we have example (A) on why you shouldn’t lay off developers until AFTER your expansion has launched.

Even with this news, it’s still a cluster. I’m still missing stuff they aren’t working on yet, their support is 5 or more days out, and there’s not anything to do for level 40 frames. The instances are still bugged, and all the reported bugs from the pts are still there. I truly don’t know if they’ll ever get it sorted out all the way. I’ve been paying and playing for a long time. I just check in each night for the daily reward and to change crystite to credits, waiting for it to be playable. I truly hope they pull this out.
