Sad day. I have kept bborn on my ps4 and pc since release day. got the damn season passes. Blind purchases. I played until literally nonstop premades chased me away. Took a few weeks.
Then I would check in periodically, read the battle plans for SOMETHING that would change the QoL in this game. But no substantive changes have happened. The matchmaking was tweaked but not really changed. Giant percentages of the playerbase quit on a monthly basis. Can’t grind the cool skins. Gotta pay real money.
Logged in again this week on both pc and ps4 and the q times were redonk and ended up with a premade vs pug. Landslides and peeps on the pug bailed super early regardless.
I just have to give up on this game until they allow challenges and trophies via bot/private matches. It is just a time sink for this stuff. Trying to get that stuff done with no friends playing and nobody online makes it a horrible burnout grind.
Game went under $10 and made only a brief difference. Now I got my worthless season pass content coming for prolly another 6-9 months. Was seriously the worst purchasing decision of my entire life.
This has really broken my trust in Gbox entirely. I can’t buy a Gbox season pass for any of their games ever again without waiting to see how the game does for a few months. I can’t even buy their games on release anymore without waiting to see how the game does for a few months. Just have to bunch gbox games into the ‘wait until $20 or less’ bargain bin.
Even bought this game and the season pass for a friend, who obviously never plays now. There isn’t a single thing in the season pass that will change the core issues with the game. The reasons that very few people are addicted to its progression systems or gameplay.
I will absolutely come back for more unlocks/challenges/trophies if they are added to private/bot modes. Making this game revolve around reliance on other players right now is just spitting in the face of the trusting purchasers of this game.
How does it feel as a dev when you are pushing your season pass content to the players and nobody is coming back to play it? I have tried to find EVERY excuse to love this game but it is just not working, especially against a huge field of competition from other games all competing for my free time.
This game lacks good faith from the devs. Like serving a bad dinner and saying ‘well i have hot sauce but i’m not cooking again’. Everyone paid for a bad dinner and just wants them to serve it again so it tastes good. All we are getting right now is hot sauce.
