As we all know ever since mayhem 2.0 was released, there was many changes which resulted in game breaking issues with the game. The Cartel event came out at the same exact time and is a limited event.
Some players weren’t even able to play due to game breaking bugs which caused freezing and crashing every 10 minutes. It would be frustrating for those people to try to farm limited weapons such as OPQ and yellowcake for only the week and a half the event will last.
On top of farming the weapons, also get the right annointment. Alot of players love the cartel event and dont want to see it leave. I definitely understand that but that’s not realistic, but for those who had issues playing the game I can understand if Gearbox extending it another 2 weeks to let affected players farm.
