Ok so as everyone is aware of… Battleborn and overwatch seemed to constantly get compared. This is the major reason why overwatch has sold 13 million copies and battleborn ( may be wrong, minimal research) sold somewhere between 100,000-200,000 copies. The constant comparison ( fair or unfair) seems to have a common trend among buyers to be either a fan of one or the other.
Blizzard has been around the block for a while, I am definitely a blizzard fan boy. Most people who play their games are. People are very keen to spend money on what is most popular. The common trend of determining a games popularity now days is the amount of viewers on twitch. I was very surprised after playing both betas that gearbox made a better game than blizzard. So let’s put this game on the map
The solution to build a bigger player base:
is to increase streamers and viewers on twitch. More advertisement
It’s a joke how unpopular battleborn is on twitch. This is very upsetting to me and anyone else who has played battleborn considering how insanely amazing the game is.
I personally blame the marketing management of gearbox. Nobody has heard of battleborn… Their is hardly any advertisement and its dwarfed in the shadow of a blizzard made game. I mean dam i have a battleborn guide app and i have to x out the overwatch advertisement to get to the guide lmao
I don’t work for gearbox but if i were in charge i would act quickly. I would locate the biggest most popular streamers on twitch and pay them enormous amounts of money to play and stream battleborn. I would also try to get the game featured on twitch’s front page. The game needs to be discovered, it is too good to be only selling such little amount of copies.
TLDR: MAKE COMMERCIALS, GET FEATURED ON TWITCH, PAY STREAMERS TO PLAY YOUR GAME SO THEIR COUNTLESS FOLLOWERS DISCOVER IT
PS: gearbox… Your amazing. Show the world what you created!
