Update 3: I pushed a bit my time on the game and got now 40 hidden room (and 3000+ Glory... never been that hight before). As I have 15d to reach 60, that should be ok with one hour or two per day. 


However, that remains a lot of time, not even saying that beyond the Rebus shop where I was finally able to buy the Inquisition Banner*, all the random rewards I got where all less interesting than what I already have (= dismantled ).


*very nice but a bit too high maybe, for those close to the windows... and I really wish I could hide/display the whole HUD with one button to make screenshots ... or maybe use NVidia Ansel like in The Surge 2.

Update 2: For various objectives, I played more on planets and I correct my first impression as, even if it looks more rare than inside ships, I had hidden rooms on surface and "high roofs". Which means only open areas never have hidden rooms for now, which is more logical. Sorry for the wrong feeling I had until now.

I did not buy it yet, but the only Helmet you have from Custodian Rebus is not previewed (I will add a screenshot later if you need one). However, to be honest, all the helmets are too big on my Assassin. It makes her Head HUGE in "Extra" menu (when previewing what it looks like). In other words, I prefer to keep the default helmet of my armor instead of using one from the "Extras" or Rebus.


About the Hidden Rooms, yes I found some, time to time, but I still think it requests a lot of time to reach 60 (I am 21 now). Maybe this is what you had in mind, but maybe for the next time, you can track how many players reached 60 and how long in hours that means, maybe I am wrong and this is fine, or maybe lower the cap should be more rewarding.

Which helmets could not be equipped by your Assassin?

The matchmaking is under some testing now, we will see how we can introduce new positive changes.
I cannot promise purple but I will have a discussion over it with my colleagues!

The footprints videos on the other hand will not likely to change in the short run, though this will also at least be considered!
We are glad to hear you started to find more hidden rooms!

OK. This WE I put more hours than expected this WE, to see how it goes (Glory = 1717/800). I managed to get 16 hidden room on 7 days, which means +8 rooms in 8 hours this WE ... 1 hidden room per hour, playing mainly "inside ship" missions as I confirm I never got a single hidden room on planet surfaces or "high floors" (and minus one room as I crashed one more time -_-... damn last update). I also finally got 100+ Cortex Fragment, which +1 Favor. Is it possible then to reach 60 rooms? Yes, but if I keep my rate, it means around 40/50h in 20 days. That's a lot when you play several games a week.


Some other requests/feedback:

- Could we have more colors (purple ^^) for the frames? I am not into blue/yellow/red.

- Could you make the videos of the footprints either bigger or with a zoom in on the footprints? It's impossible to see the result as the videos are both far and very small.

- The Helmets is not displayed on my Assassin. Is that a bug?

- Is there any plan to really improve the matchmaking with random players? I hardly find people when trying to play coop mission (and do not intend to add "unknown friends"). All shooters allow that but here, this is beyond insanity to find someone just to play one or two missions.


Anyway, I appreciate that you don't give up on this game and continue to add content. Thanks.

OK. After one week testing the "Hidden Rooms" systems, playing as a regular pace (which means sometimes 5 missions, sometimes 10 or a bit more as I play other games), I think I cannot make it to the "60 rooms find" reward. For now, I don't even have 10 because this system is too restrictive in my case. 

- I never found any Hidden Room on planets (open areas), so I guess there do not exist here.

- You are never sure a mission will include a hidden room... sometimes I played 3-4 missions without having a single one.

- As you have also Cabal objectives, those might not fit the maps you need to have a Hidden Room.


As said, this system requests too much time for me (or I am cursed and really unlucky), and I am not even sure that I can reach 40 rooms in the next 20 days.

We will re-check this issue and if its not yet working (especially with the Prophecy patch) then we will do our best to include the fixes in the next-in-line patch.

All the changes mentioned in this patch and the fixes from v2.2.0 will be coming to PS4 as well. 

First the Prophecy patch will arrive but our team is working on the next patch already but as the certification's length cannot be estimated we cannot yet tell when it will arrive. March is our goal though.

Ok, so I suggest making lives common like they are in any coop, but increase the number of lives for coop crusade.To enter the void crusade every party member has to have the required number of shards and when the crusade is started all members lose the needed amount. 

Now the hard part:

Make possible to have few active crusades at same time and make it like so that when a party of, lets say a party of 4 members, starts a crusade that party gets an ID number and its own crusade which remembers progres for that party only (meaning it cannot be continued unless all the party members are in group). You need to make it in database so the party/crusade ID is saved along with the party members IDs and is checked every time that a party wants to continue (make a menu where you select which crusade you want to continue, then you have to have a check before continuing if that party is the one that can continue). There has to be a mechanic for abandoning (1 player leaves, but 3 others stay in base and can continue) crusade or canceling it (not sure if this is needed if everyone can leave on their own). I can do details on this later if you want but it's similar.  

I don't know if I covered everything... Please feel free to ask further...

Can we expect at some time a Tarot Card, that changes the mission lvl to my current lvl? Since I am lvl 94, I can only boost missions to a lvl of 92. And this will be a problem with random star map missions, if I even get higher in my lvl to the road of 100.

Coop mechanics for void crusades are definitely in our plans but to accomplish that is way harder than it seems. Take death count and extra lives for example - what if someone wastes all his deaths, will he block team progress or be locked out from the crusade? Shard deduction, generation, and unlocks are also problems that we need to find balanced solutions for.


Having that said, I really want to accomplish all this, so stay tuned ^^

Plans? - Like inquisitorial Fortess?
