Default Lets hope DLC 2 is better and made by GBX and not some other studio.

Sorry for some ranting but i need to really blow off some steam. I finished the Pirates dlc, have to say it was not as good as i thought it would be. Give it a 5/10

1. First off, i was very dissapointed this was not made in house at GBX (watch the end credits)..thought they learned the lesson from underdome and robot revolution. Guess not.

2. New vehicle is trash, since you cannot aim DOWN at all in front of you.

3. Knoxx like islands of mobs/on foot areas, with miles of pointless terrain. "omg sand worms!!!"...meh, after the first 10 i just flew past them. Even on foot, ZERO challenge.

4. Story elements were well done except for the TOTAL lack of any kind of closure with Scarlett. WTF.

5. If i wanted "raid lockouts" i would play a mmo. If i wanted moronic raid style bosses, i would play wow. Warrior was fine, hell even terra is ok. But someone should have nipped Gee in the bud, and altered/totally eliminated him. And after seeing the loot purchasable with this new currency, thanks but no. Not even worth the 12 fing days it would take to get 1 item. BORDERLANDS IS NOT F*UCKING WOW.

And while we are at it, if you are going to tease with the word "booty"...you best be showing some, and not the laughable drops in this DLC. some quest rewards were different, although still meh in comparison to standard weaponry. A 40k dmg shotty? Sure, but make it with a 90+ accuracy then. A wave style smg? Hell yes....just needs a 3x larget clip.

I'll finish with a refresh of point 1. Make your own damn dlc for your own game. Pawning it off to another studio (for whatever reason) is a MISTAKE. And it shows in the total overall quality of Borderlands 2's first dlc. Which makes me sad. It also makes me very sure i will never get a season pass for another game ever.

Yup, I agree with all of this.

To be honest, I would rather give up DLC2 and have my season pass money invested in a `Borderlands Improvement DLC'. No new content, but all the bugs fixed, balance issues addressed, and major player complaints (eg poor weapons, lack of storage, MMO-influenced crud) addressed.

The 4 DLC are being released over a time period expanding to June 2013. More than likely they expected people buying the DLC to still be playing far past just finishing the story. Once a day is not a bad policy.

Wth are you smoking? No one is going to keep playing just so they can fight 2 incredibly cheap, tedious bosses once a day so they can buy a bunch of underpowered weapons.

I bought the season pass on faith that Gearbox would deliver the same quality as Zombie Island and Gnoxx. I'm feeling this way right now too.

Did the devs play this game with bandits re-skinned as pirates and think it would be fun?
