I miss Anthony Burch.
Numerous articles came about Borderlands 3 before release about the fact that now that they had an entire writing staff instead of relying on one person, that the story would be so much better this time around.
Quantity of writers does not equal quality. The writing in this game is such a step back from Borderlands 2 and even Pre-Sequel (Which Anthony Burch also greatly contributed).
Please go back to finding a singular, highly-qualified writer. Pay him or her an acceptable amount for a quality story and characters.
