So, I hadn’t done much multiplayer, having only picked up this game a few weeks back (was waiting for the exclusive crap to end and didn’t notice immediately when it came out).
Anyways, last night I saw a guy on one of the BL3 Discords asking for help leveling his last few levels. Figured I’d help. Joined him in a session, and the host was modding. Didn’t catch it at first, as I was at first talking with the other guy over builds and keybinds.
But when I went to go spend my Guardian Rank, I’d gone up from around 80 to 1400 or something nuts like that.
I’ve checked around. Seems the only way to reset it is to delete the profile, and even that doesn’t work because the regular saves have some of the data for ranks? More to the point, that also has your skin/bank/etc data. Could offload my guns to my toons, but losing the skins would suck.
I’m not TOO heartbroken, especially since I gather from what I’ve read that it’s almost inevitable you’ll get your guardian rank spiked up if you play public games. But if there is a way to fix it, I wouldn’t mind know.
Kinda like the Guardian rank. Gives me something to go for, progress wise. That isn’t RNG or running the risk of becoming obsoleted through increased level caps.
PS: To clarify, the guy modding didn’t strike me as an ass. He was legitimately trying to help. And the other guy getting boosted was stoked, as he said he only liked the end-game farming and hates leveling. But, all the same, I probably shouldn’t have hung around as long as I did. But by the time I noticed, was kinda too late to do much about it. I do remember people doing this in BL3, but it wasn’t as big a concern because nothing but levels were tied to XP, so it had no affect if you were at level cap.
