Why is Gearbox punishing people who do not like playing in the public verses games? I have a group of friends that meet online to play games every Friday night. We’ve been playing BF4 for the last several years almost religiously. We have our own Facebook forum and only allow people to join whom we’ve vetted. We like playing privately and most of us will never play a game that is only on public servers.
I’ve been trying since last May when my brother got me into the game to get them into playing Battleborn. They continuously refused for whatever reason. Finally, when the free-to-play was offered and since they were tired of my constant asking, most of them decided to try it. There was a problem however, we couldn’t play private games with people on the free pass. That was crap! I worked for over a year to get them all to try the game and when they finally do, we can’t play together. Much to my surprise however, they all bought the game so we could play together. That was awesome!
But now I’ve discovered a new problem. As a “reward” to all the people who like to play with their friends in private games and who do not like to play public games, Gearbox has decided to disallow Lore Challenges from being accomplished. I’m sorry, but this is complete and total BS!! What’s the difference? Why does the Lore have to be completed in public matches? PvP is PvP no matter who I play it with. I have several characters who I will never get the “Master of…” title all because I won’t like playing on a public server!? BFS!!! It’s bad enough that these challenges HAVE to be accomplished on PvP in the first place but then to force them to be public PvP games… Thank you very much for turning my love for your game to borderline disdain!
