Hi guys, just bought the game last weekend and have been smashing it out ever since. Having great fun so far, but I’m failing to see much replayability.
I’ve come from playing Battlefront (200 hours clocked) and am a fairly frequent forum member there. I’m pretty amazed due to how much saltiness there is on the BF forums due to lack of content at release; only 10 modes and 30 odd maps? Then I came here. 3 PVP modes, with only 2 maps each. 8 story missions which barely have a story. 25 characters, sure, but only a handful of moves on each character. I understand Gearbox is a lot more vocal with the community than Dice is, and are endeavouring to release more free content, but really shouldn’t more have been available at launch?
Furthermore, I’ve been gaming for at least 15 years now and am pretty decent across the board. Haven’t had a whole lot of experience with multiplayer games, especially PVP, but I was great at Borderlands and figured this would transfer over pretty well. Boy was I wrong.
PVP seems pretty fun, but with the lack of modes available it just becomes a huge mess, especially with absolutely zero introduction to PVP mechanics, character strengths and weaknesses and a complete lack of introduction to team based play (choosing your role and sticking to it).
I came to the forums to try and get a bit of a greater understanding, and while it’s helped a little it seems that every person here is very well versed in the games meta, which kind of puts me off as I feel like a complete and utter noob with no real chance of competing in a PVP setting. Is it just me, or is the learning curve in this game extremely tough?
