Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (Update 1/8/2015)

Warframe allows us to upload a image of our design to be our official clan logo! we currently using a logo designed by@humanity

Hey guys,

The explosive interest in the clan has taken clan's "management" a bit by surprise, and we're struggling to keep up. It's really cool, thanks @jeff, but...

Here's our challenge. Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (GBHI) is currently a "Storm Clan", which means we can have up to 100 members. Monday, we had 100 members, though a large portion of those had been inactive for a long time - with the policy that anyone who has not been online for 30 days may get removed to make room for a new player.

In the last 4 days, we've received almost 80+ invitation requests. That puts us in a difficult position.

We could upgrade the clan to a "Mountain Clan" allowing us to invite up to 300 members. However, the upgrade is permanent, with no possibility to shrink down later, and all research and building costs would triple which is funded through the active clan membership. Because of the additional burden to the membership, we are not comfortable with this decision before we see how many players are willing to stick around with us in the long run.

The alternate option would be for someone to create a sister clan and join GBHI in an alliance. Members in both clans can communicate through the in-game alliance chat, and set up squads with one another. If someone feels comfortable creating this overflow clan, please step in and let us know, as it would be a great interim solution until the situation stabilizes and we determine if we can sustain a Mountain Clan or if this uptick in interest is temporary.

Members of the second clan would still be able to visit the main clan's Dojo to take part of our completed research and we will offer you support in setting things up. There is an investment of in-game resource and time to build a clan dojo for the sister clan.

Creating a second clan would be no easy task in order to create a clan to allow the additional requests that are still coming in.

(Probably worth mentioning here that there is no penalty to leaving a clan and rejoining another - beyond needing to rebuild your dojo key)

The short of it, we're still deciding on what to do about it. It seems that @refactored of the PS4 Warframe Clan VinnCo is also experiencing the same situation. We'll need everyone to be patient while we figure this out. For now, feel free to ask questions here on the forums. We'll be answering questions as we are able to.

New To Warframe?

I wrote a thing about how to get started in Warframe on this thread. Hopefully it will help you get a gist of this rather confusing game.

What's Are We Up to?

Currently we're playing the latest PC Update, Update 15.

Clan Photo Time

Being part of the clan means you should craft a Dojo Key as soon as you can. A Dojo Key will then grant you access to the Giant Bomb Dojo. A Dojo is where you gain access to:

  • Research Labs and clan tech weaponry and gear.
  • Trading Post the ability to trade Mods, Platinum, Keys, and Prime Blueprints/ Parts
  • Other Clan activities (Dark Sectors)

This is a rough map with the red & green outlining the the things that are either currently in construction or will be soon. Fear not that if you get lost we have signs around the Dojo to get you on the right track!

Dark Sectors

Clans and Alliances can now contest special areas of Warframe space in Dark Sector Conflicts. Dark Sectors are special levels that award bonus credit rewards, a resource bonus, and XP bonus for killing enemies during these missions. By constructing a Solar Rail in the game and contesting a Dark Sector, a Clan or Alliance that is that successfully conquered or currently controlling this territory is allowed to set a tole, a tax and resource tribute on anyone that access the Dark Sector.

Update 14 introduced a new Dark Sectors Conflict PVP Mode in Warframe more Information about this and how our clan plans to get involved will be added in the future.

For a time the Giant Bomb Clan controlled Kardesh a Dark Sector found in Mars.

Accomplishments

Never Forget Mars, Kadesh

So what's the clan been up to? Check out my thread Giant Bomb Heavy Industries (PC Clan) Journal where he has been posting videos highlight a few of clan's accomplishments and endeavors. For instance did you know Giant Bomb Heavy Industries was ranked Rank 71st in the Cicero Crisis, or 85th highest contributing clan in the The Gradivus Dilemma? Not to mention the time we tried Drumming Them Drums Like The Wolf or took Vault Seflies... Form Voltron! We also for about 72-hours we held Mars!

Other Events

Screenshots of our Adventures

Clan Size & Tier

The clan is currently a tiered as Storm Clan this essentially means that we can have a 100 clan members limit and our resource requirements for the clan's dojo are scaled for a clans with up to 100 members . The short of it is, so that our dojo resource requirements do not overburden the active members of clan we decided to remain a Storm clan during this time. Basically, the Clan Warlord reserves the right to remove any members that become inactive for more than 30 days. This is also to accommodate and ensure room in the Clan for new members.

Keep in mind

If you found out you have been removed from the clan: We are always open to re-invites, just because your being deleted this time, you can still re-join the clan in the future. THIS IS NOT A BAN. If you are reading this after you have been removed, just post another invite request to this thread. So if you were just taking a break from the game, feel free to ask to be re invited.

Has anyone had issues with crashing since U14? Yesterday the game crashed on me twice in short succession and today after 2 host migrations then just crapped out. I don't know if this is my PC or not as I built it myself and I have no idea what I'm doing but I've had very few issues and only with Warframe. The game also comes to a complete halt for me too when I level up.

#6 Posted by noizy (749 posts) -

Yea. Game has been crashing for me too, but only since the latest hot fix, and the frame rate has been dropping more than usual especially with Mirage clones .

Yesterday the authentication server was having issue, so reporting progress after a mission or fusing mods would sometime drop you out of the game. Hopefully this all get cleared up soon.

I feel it wasn't that bad when U14 released, but one of the latest hotfix changed something that is making it worse on my end.

#7 Posted by Rapid (1433 posts) -

@mrcraggle: DE reported that they under a ddos attack this weekend. This happened the last update when they released Dark Sectors. I had a hard time logging in. Sometimes it would auto logout and throw me out of the game. So probably the main reason the game is crashing more than usual. Last time this problem died down after a few days. Now that introduced an arena / MOBA based PVP aspect to when dark sector conflict phase the ddos'ers are back.

Speaking of dark sectors conflict, I tried a few matches. There are two teams which depending on you are supporting the clan in control or helping the contesting clan, you are either Supporting Or Opposing. The game mode has control points the Opposing side object is going after control points until they reach the core and destroy it. The defenders are trying to impede the progress by trying to stop the opposition from accessing A/B terminals which once activated make the core vulnerable.

For this game mod you bring in your normal equipped loadout except your stuff is locked and unranked. Your loadout unlocks and your mods rank up as you kill npcs (minons), and players or by contributing directly to the objectives. This is MOBA like aspect of dark sectors I was talking about.

The attackers are stopped when they run out of reinforcements / spawn tickets. Each instance has 20 tickets. Currently there are two phases to this game mode. First the opposition has to reach terminals to open the doors to the core room. Once they reach the core room they need to destroy the core. The core can only be harmed when the blast shields are down leaving it exposed. When terminals A and B are activated.

The little time I spent with it, it was really interesting. A lot of neat ideas and it was kind of fun to see my mods and loadout come online as I was getting kills. However there are still game balance and implementation issues.

For its drop in and drop out. While the game will scale your level up if you drop in mid game I still feel underpowered. I am not sure how it calculates the level your gear starts at if you drop in mid game.

Also the teams can become one sided quickly. The game starts with bots (spectors) until human players join and replace the bots. However, I was in a match with 4 human players opponents and no other person but bots on my team. Suffice to say, I got steam rolled that match.

There's also a bug or maybe because of the connection issues where when you try to start a dark sector in a pre-formed squad, you come across a black screen when you try to launch the mission. If your lucky you spawn into an empty match and then your able to invite all your squad mates into your game assuming that the spots don't get filled by pubs before your mates join.

Overall promising introduction. Like the rest of the game needs a lot of work and polish.

#8 Posted by mrcraggle (1989 posts) -

@rapid: @noizy: So it does seem like there are some issues going on then. I defo think the last hotfix has something to do with it. When U14 came out, there was the issue where you'd accept a mission and it'd get stuck looking for players to join.

I do need to look more into the Dark Sectors stuff though. It was introduced when I was taking time away from the game.

#9 Posted by noizy (749 posts) -

@mrcraggle: @rapid Yea. DDOS is what I had assumed. On a Jefflr stream with Dave Snider in the car, Dave mentioned how DDOS are being used for extortion. It's pretty sad. Might get more of those when U14 launches on PS4.

I hopped into Dark Sector twice and wasn't too sure what to do. I noticed my mods being shown in the "mission complete" screen, and was a bit worried that I was playing for pink slips with my mod :P Losing my rare mods would have been a real bummer. Although I didn't notice they were ranking up. Are you saying I could play a ton of Dark Sector and get my Serration mod up to max level just by playing and it would carry over, or what? I'll have a look at the wiki later tonight as I'm interested now.

#10 Edited by Rapid (1433 posts) -

@noizy: Not sure about if you can lose mods. But I did see a random flow mod suddenly drop either from a sector or player. I've was only able play a few matches since it has been quite unstable. I don't think you can bring any xp gained into the pve. At the start of each match you start with no mods active and rank 0 frame and weapon. Your gear levels up during the match as you get kills and complete objectives. Mods also become activated I'll double check the wiki if when your mods come online whether they are fully levelled. For instance if I bring a level 20 Warframe into a conflict, will I be capped at level 20 in the late game of the match? A interesting meta game would be if I equipped low level mods on my gear does that mean they become active sooner in the early match since they require less capacity than someone who comes in with a fully ranked 10 mod.

Played this a bit not long after it came out, got my starting stuff up to about level 10. Started anew with this new update, and man. The tutorial really made it a lot easier to understand stuff. So I think I might be sticking with it this time, at least for a time. I made a clan for me and my brothers, but if you can be in several clans, I would love to get an invite: Maddolav

I'm ubernoob, Played like a year ago for a few hours (our friend is a notorious quitter) so we didn't carry on. It seems to have some legs though. Room for another?! I'm Though it won't let me log in...can't connect to internet apparently.

Hey duders!

Unfortuntely, I get message that you guys are already in a pre-existing clan or you still have a pending invite to another clan

You need to first decline or leave the pre-existing clans before I can send an invite to you.

Is there any point to continuing the Avalanche Offensive once you've killed 100 enemies? I haven't seen anything that says there is a bonus or reward other than the 3 days of affinity.

#23 Posted by Rapid (1433 posts) -

@mrcraggle: 3 Day XP Booster, but people are speculating that this is just a precursor to something larger. Guess we'll have to wait for Gamescom Dev Stream to find out more.

#24 Posted by mrcraggle (1989 posts) -

@rapid: I was just wondering because this is super easy. Normally when DE do an event, there are usually 3 tiers. The 100 feels like such a low amount. I was able to get it in just a few runs.

#25 Edited by GaspoweR (3711 posts) -

Ey thanks for the invite @rapid and also thanks to @noizy for letting me join in with you guys on your blueprint run and also getting to 3K in the Cryotic Front.

Now, I have a Latron Wraith that is super reliable and I'm getting a lot of crits with...I'm so spoiled by it now that I don't want to go use another primary for awhile... but I have to because of mastery ranks. :/

I guess the next step would be finishing up all those left over missions and then proceeding to go on a lot of defense and survival mission runs to get void keys.

#26 Posted by noizy (749 posts) -

@gaspower: Any time dude.

Personally I like the Boltor Prime and Soma as primary, Brakk as secondary, and Bo Prime or Dual Ichor as melee weapons. The Orthos Prime and Dragon Nikana are great too, but they don't copter so I don't use them. The Dakra Prime can copter, but I don't have Crimson Dervish sadly, and don't want to re-polarize to use the other stance mod.

The Latron Wraith is alright. I think it might edge the Latron Prime slightly. My issue with Latron is the semi-auto and lower fire rate, smallish magazine, and somewhat long reload time. If it had DPS that exceeded the Boltor Prime, I'd look past those quality of life short comings. It's a good gun, but I prefer full auto.

What are your short term goals in Warframe? We'd probably be glad to join and help.

#27 Edited by GaspoweR (3711 posts) -

@noizy: I don't really have a lot of specific short term goals (besides getting to weapons I like) other than finishing up on available missions and gathering resource materials (rare ones like oxium and neurodes for example). I want to build an extractor eventually and plant it somewhere.

Also I actually like the Latron being semi-auto, I just like the feel of it. And I have fast hands on it so, I don't really have as much of a problem with reload times. Also I'd probably get around to building a Soma but I'm not at that mastery level yet but I'll get to it eventually. I'd probably build Paris next and probably dabble with sniper rifles for the heck of it. As for the secondary, I actually want to get around to making Akvasto down the line, but I've yet to make one Vasto because of resources, I haven't finished Mars yet, but I've dabbled with Jupiter and I have access to Phobos and Uranus already.

#28 Edited by noizy (749 posts) -

@gaspower: Personally I haven't leveled that many weapons, or haven't forced myself to level weapons I didn't care about. You get more leveling frames and sentinels, twice as much in fact.

With the content additions and fundamental changes coming in Update 15 of Warframe that were announced on the latest Dev Stream.

The update comes with the much anticipated addition of Archwing Space Combat, as well as the introduction of Syndicates. As well as a significant change in the Warframe Ability system to be independent of the existing mod system.

https://www.warframe.com/archwing/ Count down teaser page to update 15 is now up. New panels are added every day. Used WASD to navigate.

With that said, it's time for a redesign of the GB Heavy INC Clan Dojo . Veteran members may remember back in 02/07/2014 we basically tore down a poorly designed dojo layout, and all rooms were removed, and basically started again. The new layout made use of a sub-basement reactor bay which was a better design because it separated the dojo research labs from the reactors . Making it easier to access the labs all in one place. I'm basically going a step further and moving the unused clan halls downstairs. Which means what was referred to as the small business hall will be down to the basement.

Since the small business hall is the prerequisite room for what is now the hall with all the research. I need first to remove the research hall before I am able to remove the small business hall and relocate it to downstairs.

Hopefully this redesign can be finished just before Update 15 drops.

#34 Edited by noizy (749 posts) -

Here is a plan of the main floor of the soon to be renovated dojo. We wanted to make the main floor as compact as possible by keeping all the intractable rooms together, and remove all the unnecessary corridors. Hope you'll enjoy the remodeling and sorry for the inconvenience. We built a temporary trading post in the Clan hall which will be ready very soon.

Played some last night after being absent for a few months. No one in the clan was on - boy was I lost. I spent some time fumbling with remapping my controls since everything had been scrambled up for some reason, then spent about an hour trying to wrap my head around all of the crafting, blueprints, materials, currencies, and missions...then tried to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. The actual game part of Warframe is great, it's the infrastructure the game is buried in I'm having difficulty with.

#49 Edited by MB (13300 posts) -

@rapid: Thanks...well I guess my main question is, what should I even be doing? Are there specific missions or progression that I should look at? I looked at the navigation map and I have some missions unlocked, some are locked...but the descriptions on them are ambiguous. I'm not sure which ones of those are good to do, or should be avoided. Also I am still on my first starter Warframe. What is considered the best way to get a new one, and what are some of the better ones to go after for new people? Are they worth upgrading or should I just level up my starter one?

I was able to craft a Clan Key with the materials I had in stock though, so I got into the Dojo. But again, I don't even know what any of the stuff in there does. All of it may as well be in a foreign language.

I won't be able to play for a couple of days. It may be Sunday or Monday before I jump back in. Thanks for the help.

Decided to start playing this again, it sure has changed a lot since I last played it. Pretty confusing, especially since I have most things already unlocked but remember almost nothing. It would be nice if I could get an invite. Don't know how long I will stick around though, but you could always kick me later right? Don't really have as much time playing games these days and even last time I lost interest after a couple of weeks, so I won't be super active. Name: Voltcation
