For once, a topic not about Mellka. Mark this day.
I’ve noticed that, quietly but surely, a few Battleborn have lapsed into neglect and obscurity. The most prominent examples:
Thorn. This is especially striking because she used to be one of the most complained about characters - for a time, her reputation on these boards was comparable to Benedict/Boldur’s reputation now. But after the nerfs to Blight and the adjustment to volley, I almost never see her.
Oscar Mike. Post-napalm nerf, he’s rarely in games, and I’m not surprised in the slightest. Yet he used to be one of the most common sights, especially in Incursion.
Marquis. Maybe he’s more prominent on PC, but I don’t see him much on console anymore. Toby is much more common nowadays - perhaps because, since the lore was made easier, many more people have access to Double Hug?
ISIC. He was always a bit uncommon, but he’s an endangered species now.
El Dragon. But we’ve all been over that.
On the flip side: I am seeing way more Kelvins than I ever used to before. And Benedict is now in every single game. Deande is also much more common now. Shayne’s buffs also seem to have made her popular, but Caldarius and especially Mellka sightings are way down.
For all that Boldur is powerful, he’s also quite uncommon.
So are these trends just me imagining things, or have other people noticed the same?
