I have been using the Xbox Club for trades and groups. But joined because i wanted your feedback -
I read the posts here, most complaints are about drop rates, anointment drops, etc.
IMHO i feel GB did this to themselves and was caught off guard by the outcome. What i am saying is that maybe the drop rates are not as bad as they first appear and have more to do with the junk that drops which dilutes the pool so badly in could take thousands of hours to ever get the drop you want. Look at redistributors and some other popular weapons with anointment as an example, i have traded with more then 15 people who all offer me redistributors, i take them to compare and find it is the same one i already have in most cases. So people are trading and making copies rather than farm them. I meet a guy in the Xbox groups last night that appeared to have everything you could want in lv 53, he said he never farms, he traded for it all. To me personally while trading is a fun part of the game, it is getting out of hand like it did in BL2. Everyday i see posts on the xbox club asking for loot drops. That takes away all the fun of playing and finding that weapon on your own. Imagine how stoked i was when i finally got a lv 53 Cutsman SNTL from Gigmind.
So how can GB fix the issue and keep this game from being BL2, where coping, modding ran rampant and no one farmed like the game is meant to be.
Start by getting rid of the very things they themselves put into the loot pools that severely dilute the loot pool. Who hasn’t done a 2 hour farming run and come away with 12-15 skin, trinket items. They drop far too often and dilute the pool. Get rid of them.
Now fix anointment’s so they drop where they should, and don’t drop on weapons they do not belong. We all see this and don’t even pick them up.
*ASE ele chance increased on a weapon without elemental - Waste on non elemental guns
*Consecutive hits add 1% dam - Waste on Launchers, shotguns, etc, only viable on SMG, AR, you loose the benefit while reloading
*There are far more then i have time to add here, but you get the idea. List the ones that bother you here. How about increasing the chance of getting the anointment’s your character can use.
