TennoCon 2017: Warframe Q&A session turns into surprise marriage proposal

    
22
Digital Extremes’ reveal of a more open world with landscapes nearly brought down the house at TennoCon 2017, but that may not be the most important moment for one couple. (Or maybe it was, we won’t judge!) Player Brutallama (aka Dallin Heninger) took to the stage for a brief Q&A session, but then told the panel of devs that the question wasn’t for him. He got down on one knee and proposed to Todosplatano (aka Callie Wandell) in front of the entire convention and a massive live audience. She said yes.

The happy couple has six years of Warframe gameplay between them: four for him and two for her. Heninger admitted that the two had discussed marriage before, but the idea for popping the question at the convention was formed only three hours before it happened. Friend TKanimefreak (whom they just got playing a month ago, and look how he repays them!) then made the suggestion it be done on the stage, and with the help of Live Operations and Community Producer Rebecca Ford, the moment became a part of TennoCon history.

The couple is planning a September or October wedding, but there’s no word on whether Warframes will be acceptable wedding attire. A big congratulations from Massively OP!

Though it can be a happy ending, I personally think it’s very intrusive and awkward for a woman (or a man) to be put on the spot in front of a live studio audience or in a restaurant like shes being dangled as a “YES/NO” trophy or something.

“DO IT!!!” God that is a horrible situation as I was told from a friend who had to say no to her ex.

I have seen once before in public myself where it’s very embarrassing (She said yes but I know she kicked his ass once they got home, lol). Marriage is something sacred and not for YouTube subs or something. It’s just tacky.

That being said best to them both!

(EDIT: Or a man) <- Gf made me do that.

Eh, seems like at every convention/major event there’s always at least one person who formulates a proposal in front of a massive audience (Blizzcon, SMITE World Championship, League of Legends’ World championship… just to name the ones I remember off the top of my head). What’d be more awkward is if she said no and the guy was just left rejected there for everyone to see.

It’s pushy, it’s creepy. It’s not cute at all.

Yeah I don’t really see the point in it myself. But if it works it works I guess. *shrug*

Two much of people watching the movies, that and interrupt the wedding of the girl you love. I can image what that trope looks like.

I see there are no responses from anyone in my corner besides yours.

I really honestly feel great for them. I just feel that it’s kinda well…maybe I should shut up and support them and leave the personal opinions aside. Too much of that nowadays. Good for them!!!

Well The Lotus has presided over a real wedding. Maybe this might be Nuptia number 2?

(The fact he used his question to more or less demand trinity gets nerfed though… really? That was the most pressing, biggest thought about the game you had?)
