Hey everyone! We’re back, and we’ve got something to share with you.
As we’ve mentioned in the last few Battleplans, we’ve been keeping our heads down while we work on an update. So far, we’ve only been able to share with you bits of information about what that update may entail. Well, we’re pleased to tell you that we’re just about ready to give you the details.
In the next couple weeks, we’ll be hosting a special Battleborn livestream at twitch.tv/gearboxsoftware specifically to tell you about the update. New Media Manager Elisa Meléndez and guests will go over what you can expect from this update when it drops.
We’re still finalizing the date and time, so keep an eye on our forums and social channels for specifics, and be sure to turn your Twitch notifications on so you don’t miss out!
While we’re currently working on a number of fixes for the update, we _do_ happen to have one ready to go for you right now! This hot fix will begin rolling out today at 12pm PT/3pm ET!
· Reduced damage of Rune Power Axe Toss from 420 to 308 at level 10.
· Reduced damage of Rune Power Boldurdash from 267 to 235 at level 10.
This week, we shine our Community Spotlight on a delightfully wacky forum thread. Over the last couple weeks, members of the _Battleborn_ forum community have been posting weird and wonderful Photoshop creations in the _[Battleborn_ Photoshop Thread](https://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/t/battleborn-photoshop-thread/1561102).
Started by @AncientBelgareth and @HandsomeCam when they requested a photo of a Montana-Toby Photoshop chimera (which was eventually provided to them by @lowlines), the Battleborn Photoshop Thread has become the go-to place for users who want to spread cheer with Battleborn head swaps, composite characters, and other hilariously artistic creations.
To us, the coolest thing about the Battleborn Photoshop Thread (besides the playful and friendly atmosphere, of course), is the sheer skill that’s on display with a lot of these fan creations. My personal favorite pieces – @KitRyu’s head swaps of Deande and Alani – look so legitimate, someone unfamiliar with the characters might not even realized they’re photoshopped!
So, if you’re looking for a little silliness, go check out the Battleborn Photoshop Thread! Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
It’s story-time in Solus, as our esteemed Loremasters present you with another offering of Battleborn Lore! Here’s a sneak peak:
Darkspace Operations, Part 6
“The Varelsi were decimated in minutes. Every few seconds, the hellish drone of the Doomlight’s siren would sound, its stormdrive core briefly illuminated with charge in the pitch-black sky. Peals of Dredge’s laughter rang out as lightning traced the path of least resistance between the Doomlight’s cannons and whatever unfortunate Varelsi he pointed at, leaving only the indigo cinders of their deconstitution and the echo of thunder. Between strikes, Orendi and the Sinners darted between stragglers to mop up. After spectating a few salvos, Shayne’s patience wore out.”
To read the rest of this entry, head on over to its dedicated thread in our Lore subforum! Happy reading!
Like we mentioned above, the _Battleborn_ Update livestream is coming! We’ll be sure to let you know the final date and time on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and the forums, so be sure to keep an eye out.
