Just wanted to update that my ease of use and lack of issues did not last very long.
This last patch 11/21/ has completely messed up this game for me.
I now get crashes(blue screens) about every hour or so, seemingly at random. The Guardian Ranks no longer work. A lot of class skills are either broken or super out of balance now. Drop rates are horrendous now.
Like literally everything is broken in this game now and each patch seems to make it worse off.
Even the thing I thought would surely be fixed by now haven’t been touched, like the tiny item card text handy been addressed. Vertical split screen still lacking. Menu lag(even in single player) is game ending at times.b
Item cards can’t be seen due to tiny text and poor choice of color/design layout. Item cards mixed up and not even matching what it’s supposed to be.
Class imbalance is horrible. Skills are often bugged or glitchy/inconsistent.
Even the story is lacking and has no continuity with previous games.
Character development is flat and lame(my name is Tina and I’m REEEEAL crazy!) Wtf.
I feel bad doing it but I could go on all day.
Literally every aspect of this game currently feels busted, broken, bugged or lacking and my optimism tan out a while ago. This last patch was supposed to be a Hail Mary but it just broke the game even worse for me, technically and mechanically.
Fortunately there are other games and other hobbies and hopefully Gearbox will get their act together and I can possibly revisit a collectors edition or some such down the road…
Being a long time Borderlands fan from the beginning I am sorely disappointed with the way this release had been handled and I am embarrassed now that I defended them so rightiously in the beginning.
At this point, hopefully Gearbox can outsource some help from somewhere and perhaps dig this game out if the massive hole that it has slid into.
Goddamn disappointing after waiting so long.
Edit: Have also since lost my bank and then later all my fast travel points. Yeah all these things at up and when your fighting crashes and performance issues just to play and everything is still bug ridden and wack, really, even your biggest most die-hard fans have a break point.
