As you may have heard, we are releasing our long-anticipated update, The New War, on December 15 2021. Truly everyone at Digital Extremes touches development of The New War in one way or another, and the teams who typically work on charity initiatives and in-game events are currently tied up in getting this update ready for you.
This brings us to TennoBaum, a charity based event we ordinarily throw in December. In light of the entire studio’s laser-focus on delivering you The New War, we have looked at the calendar as well as our teams’ workload and made the difficult decision to move our TennoBaum celebrations into early 2022.
We understand that TennoBaum has become something of a tradition in the Warframe community, and we want you to know that it isn’t being skipped or going away -- only arriving a little late. We are so excited to share our plans for the next TennoBaum, including this year’s charity beneficiary, but we’ll have to wait until the new year to tell you more.
We suspect you’ll have your hands full this December defending the Origin from the Sentient invasion. When the dust settles after The New War, we’ll all celebrate TennoBaum together!
During Devstream 158, we made a statement directed at Broadcasters specifically to keep ‘Creator Mode’ on during the upcoming New War quest - we acknowledge that this was a bit confusing in its implications.
For those unaware, the ‘Creator Mode’ option obfuscates information about your account, including email addresses in the login screen on PC. We respect the privacy of our Streamers, and wanted to ensure that no one accidentally leaked their information amidst the excitement of the Quest!
In order to simplify our intentions to protect Streamers, we are changing the login screen to partially obfuscate emails for all players on PC. This is a permanent change and login details will continue to stay partially hidden after The New War. Creator Mode will no longer be necessary for privacy reasons, but will continue to obfuscate other in-game spoiler information!
Hope this clarity helps!
Creator Mode obfuscates email, which is important for player privacy when streaming.
But, we are going further and just making emails partially obfuscated anyway independent of Creator Mode to avoid any issues.
We mentioned earlier that the Warframe Community Team would be taking a streaming hiatus after Devstream #158.

When balancing for Aya acquisition, we neglected to consider the Ghoul Bounties (this was our mistake). As a result of Aya’s placement within these, this recurring event was being run in such a way that vastly detracted from the intended flow of Bounties, which also caused endless migrations and session problems. As this is a randomly repeating event, we’ve set it up so any recurrences of this event have been put on hold until The New War update launches, at which time their next appearance will have slightly refactored drop tables (similar to how we handled Aya in some Void missions). We are sorry for any confusion here, but we wanted to be transparent about our plans for the Ghoul Bounties.
We will have launch information for "The New War" soon, as of this post the latest information is 'December', but we will update here once we have the date live!
