I was complaining about the pre-patch glitch. And telling people that they should be happy it’s gone. Because if you need a glitch to play this game, that’s sad. They intended Tubbies to be rare, y’all. Get over yourselves and your “right” to easy loot. The fact that this game is playable and fun at OP8 is a testament of how well this game is balanced. If literally everyone had a Norfleet and a Bekah and a Twister and a Quasar, it would not be balanced. That is why OOO, UBA Varkids, Tubbies, and Vermi are so excruciatingly hard to spawn and farm. Because their drops are, for the most part, the best items inside of the game. Hence, they were made harder to find. The same reason the Interfacer is hidden behind Voracidous, and I don’t see people calling for him to be debuffed.
As a side note, I have a friend who got a Pearlescent from a locker in Sanctuary. So trust the non-glitched game to give you the RNG you want.
