DevPost Roundup: September 30, 2017

General

[DE]Megan – “Thanks For Watching Prime Time #183!
A recap of the livestream.

[DE]Rebecca – “Monday, September 25: This week in Warframe (PC)!
Formal announcement that Update 22 was not in the cards for this past week.

[DE]Aidan – “PSA: Steam Pricing Error for Hydroid Prime Access” (2) (3)
Earlier this week the Hydroid Prime Access was incorrectly listed at $8.99 on Steam. Aidan reassures players that no one will be banned for making this purchase of the unintended discount. Ultimately, the matter was resolved by correcting the price and anyone who purchased it at the reduced price was able to keep it. Note: There has still not been any official word regarding the Banshee Prime Access for $1 where DE did not honor the transaction or refund the $1, though my sources might just be outliers.

[DE]Megan – “Coming Soon: New Free Prime With Prime Weapon Bundle!
A new batch of vaulted Prime equipment is coming to Twitch Prime – the Soma Prime and Scindo Prime.

[DE]Megan – “[PC] Server Upgrades @ 9 a.m ET Sept 28!
Announcement about some upcoming server maintenance. Done by the time of this post.

[DE]Taylor – “Twitch Drops Prep and Exclusive Sigil Drop” (2) (3) (4)
A list of all of the Official Warframe Partners who can stream for viewers to earn the exclusive Sigil. The post provides links to all valid channels and is separated into broadcast language as well. IMPORTANT: Once every Partner has unlocked the achievement, the Sigil will not be available for the remainder of the Great Eidolon event. You can only get the Sigil if you are logged in to Twitch and linked your Warframe account. You can link your account here: Official Warframe Website. The fourth link clarifies that console Tenno will receive the items as well, though Plains of Eidolon will launch at a later date for them.

Note: DE has allowed TennoClockNews to participate in The Great Eidolon Hunt, but I’m not really much of a streamer… I’ll try to make a Reddit post on /r/warframe and live on the Raid School Bus Discord server before I set out to get this achievement. My page is twitch.tv/tgdm. Again – I am not looking to break into the streaming scene – I’m not looking for follows/likes or however this thing works – just trying to help people get the Sigil.
