The difference is that when most Players went from 41 to 100 there were no Boosts in the Cash Shop.
Yes…there were exp boosts
Further, CR used to be a way of judging how well experienced the team you got matched with is with Battleborn. Now that only applies in PvE.
There is an extremely simple way to still see CR in PvP matches. Almost everyone knows the trick so this is a moot point.
In PvP you can see CR after the match is started, but you’re still locked in to that team now.
I see you responded to your prior statement with your own counter to the statement. When all is said and done, people can still check CR as a source of skill level. Removing CR from the very first screen eliminated a lot of the early leavers - which was needed
There’s less justification for Ranks now than there used to be, and now the Compulsion Loop can be exploited for Profit.
I heard that Gearbox will be giving out loot packs, etc. heavily as you go up the ranks. Other than loot packs, and gear, what do you want?
That’s not ok.
You are basically arguing that grinding for levels just for the sake of grinding for levels is bad. This is pure opinion and not a fact. i know a ton of people who love to grind levels just for the sake of grinding levels. Who made you the video game police as to say what is and isn’t okay?
Grinding for levels has been a phenomena in video games since…i dont know…ive been playing games since for ever and I know that the grinding concept really started to truly take off during the early MMORPGs of the time. People like to grind. it’s a measure of their own progression…internally…externally. You name it. Do I love to grind just for the sake of grinding with no real progression? Not really. But your argument can be applied to so many major competitive and non competitive video games of the modern era.
And there are other ways to distribute Loot and Titles, the Ops have proven that beyond any doubt. Better ways as well, since they tie back to Story, Challenge, and Experiences. And since there’s NOT a Pay2Win, they can’t be exploited for Profit.
Sure, I agree.
