I don’t use the forums much. I kinda just lurk. I’m a JPN player but recently moved to USA. I came to the forums just for this post alone.
I was playing with a friend of mine that picked up the game and she ended up loving it a lot. So much in fact that she wanted to watch the streams when she wasn’t playing (like TheSaverok or luckmod if that’s thier name and they usually tend to play with the same individuals). Unfortunately her love for the game was short lived due to the community itself. I never really paid much attention to the community spotlight but I might now seeing as those players need a lot more recognition than those that just get salty when they are behind on score, taunt after every kill or call people out of their names for picking different helix choices (really?) or certain characters because the feel that they are better with them. I believe she put the game down for good when some pretty apparently “well known” deande player just kept trash talking her albeit she was really good for a new player. (Went 9-2 or something)
Like yea, I’m sure someone could have the audacity to say something like “best thorn/deande etc” if the community was even big enough to even validate such claims. I’m not going to sit and rant on about this for long but it wouldn’t hurt being a little less of an ass to the newer players trying to learn the game or find people that enjoy the game as much as they do.
The community is already small enough, I don’t think Battleborn can afford to lose any more of its 70ish daily console users. It would be nice to see more streams that promote the game in better ways like there used to be.
