We’re BACK! TennoCon 2018 has gone down as one of the biggest days in Warframe history… and we took the chance to finally sit down and discuss what was showed! Devstream #113 answered some of the most asked questions and comments from our TennoCon 2018 reveals, and just relished in the opportunity to show you more of Fortuna and Orb Vallis.
With how gameplay- and discussion-heavy this is, I highly recommend watching the full stream if you have time. If not, read up about what was shown about Venus, the Revenant Warframe, Railjack and more in our overview here: https://www.warframe.com/news/devstream-113-overview
See you in 2 weeks!
Hey console Tenno!
Since TennoCon 2018 has come and passed, we wanted to give you an update on where we’re at with The Sacrifice Twitch Drops Campaign re-run.
To get you up to speed, we originally informed you that we would be re-running the campaign after TennoCon. For the sake of the console Tenno who, at the time, did not want to spoil the quest while watching PC broadcaster streams, we still intend to do so! Our goal has not changed, however, since Update 23 launched on XB1, there have been some difficult-to-solve login and quest freezes/crashes issues.
We recently just launched a hotfix on XB1 that’ll hopefully solve the bulk of these issues. You can read more about that here:https://forums.warframe.com/topic/985444-xb1-stuck-on-login-screencrashesfreezes-post-u23-update-megathread/
While we are confident in this fix, we require the following weeks to observe the fix to see if it’s been successful. Additionally, we are concerned that the traffic we usually get on our servers during a Twitch Drops campaign would cause more stress on these ongoing issues.
With that said! Once we have the “all clear” that the fix has done what we sought it out to do, we will post an official start date for the campaign. We will also be posting a new thread when the Campaign goes live with all of the information you need to earn your Twitch Drops. You can expect the same rewards earned the same way as the first campaign run.
Thank you for your continued patience as we work to make this re-run a reality!

TennoGen Changes & Fixes:
Somachord & Mandachord Changes:
These last few weeks have been pretty busy around here -- Warframe just keeps growing and growing! Among other things, our chat servers have been running a little hot for a while now and in recent weeks they have been really showing their age. As part of continued improvements to our network infrastructure, we recently upgraded our PC Chat server to a box with over 50% more hamsters in it, and we’re planning to deploy upgrades for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 chat servers next week. Fresh woodchips for everybody!
One of the things the new servers can do is IPv6 networking. You might remember about a year ago we enabled dual-stack IPv6 for a number of servers, which has been great, but this left some of our infrastructure still on IPv4.
Coming soon to a hotfix near you is an experimental option to connect to chat using the new protocol (enable in Settings => Chat => IPv6). Note: for this option to do anything, you will need IPv6 connectivity (you can check https://ipv6test.google.com/). Support on Xbox One will arrive soon, but unfortunately support on the PlayStation 4 can’t happen without some SDK features from Sony.
Among other things, we hope that IPv6 will reduce periodic disconnects that some people experience (usually reported as error code 10054 when a network device between your PC and our servers drops your connection for no reason). Generally we can’t “fix the internet,” so we just reconnect when it happens -- but we’re hoping that if you’re on IPv6 you can avoid carrier 6-to-4 NAT, which may avoid the issue altogether.
We also hope IPv6 will help some people simply never being able to connect to chat (the spinner never stops). For some reason this is more of a problem for PC players, but it’s not clear why. (Firewall software? Misbehaving routers? The killer is still at large!) This may be as common as one out of every 20 players, but I have yet to meet someone with this problem, much less someone willing to run packet captures for me to diagnose it. (If that’s you, let me know!)
I personally don’t have IPv6 connectivity (I had to test all this with a VPN), so I’m hoping to hear from you guys who have modern ISPs to tell me how well it works. Since everything should be automatic, our goal is to turn it on by default at some point in the near future once we iron out any wrinkles you may find.
Who: Rebecca is joined by the usual suspects Geoff, Steve, Sheldon, and Scott!
