Upcoming Features and Changes[DE]Rebecca – “Tactical Alert Rant (Snowday Showdown)”
The Stratos Emblem was being awarded as a ‘hidden’ reward for completing all 8 of the Snowday Showdown Alerts. However, DE has decided to revert this reward to keep the Stratos Emblem associated with completing the challenge missions during a Tactical Alert. [DE]Taylor – “Issue with Steam Tennogen skins on Prime frames” (2) (3) (4)
TennoGen skins will now use the base model of a warframe instead of their Prime variants in order to cut down on issues with clipping or concealment of textures. This is an all-or-nothing type of change; you will not be able to choose to use the Prime variant as a base for a TennoGen skin and all TennoGen skins will be subject to this change. Other skins, such as the Phased Vauban, are under consideration for this change as well.
