Because this Live Update Patch nonsense is wearing thin.
There is zero excuse, a year in, to NOT have the same experience offline as online.
So much simply does not work properly offline, that it seems rather misleading, if not flat-out duplicitous, to even claim that BL3 can be played offline.
Because it effectually cannot be.
I do not know what the dreck is that is being pawned off as offline mode, but it sure isn’t the same experience as “live”. It is leagues different. And by leagues, I do mean fathoms. And by fathoms I do means much lower. And by much lower I do mean lesser. And by lesser I do mean complete sh1t.
Come on, Gearbox. The “live” version of the game is bad enough. At least put the offline mode on par with it. Or else come clean with your intentions. Because it certainly does not seem like you intend for this game to be played offline. Rather, it seems like you are deliberately employing a rather base tactic of psychological abuse to get your remaining player-base conditioned/groomed to accept your imposing online upon them.
