Alot of stuff gets said in some passionate moments. Not all of it kind (I am just as guilty as others) but I agree, we are all in this together.
Something that does need to be understood by some individuals is that just because a bug didn’t affect you doesn’t make it any less devastating to someone that had it happen to them. Some of these bugs are massively worse than others. Minor lag isn’t that bad, more of an annoyance, but the game turning off my hardware with the potential to brick it, that is huge.
A lot of you folks criticizing people for complaining about the nerfs may not see that it is more than just the badass gun they are losing, alot of it is a chance to start to understand this game and its wacky mathmatics. The order of operations and those interesting synergies that exist aren’t readily apparent to everyone. To be quite honest I don’t understand alot of them, and because of that my Zane build is probably alot less capable than someone else. So if my number 1 gun that does the thing I was centering my build around in the hopes that I finally had something figured out to hold my own gets shafted, yeah, I would rightfully be upset.
I agree with a lot of people that feel some of the nerfs have been heavy handed. I am not given a lot of confidence when there is an endless litany of “justification” for every single nerf that happens that sound pretty suspicious. “Oh this was applying a number wrong” or “this left a random bullet floating out there” or “the spirit of this was this but this happened instead” and every bit of it sounds more and more like they don’t understand how the math works in their own game.
There are too many indicators that the testing on this game was way less than it should have been. And in so many different ways, from gameplay bugs to ui bugs to actual gameplay mechanics and the game content itself.
I dislike how forgettable so many of the legendaries feel, and I truly do not get why, in a game where you can give a gun legs, you cannot find a way to make a rifle stand out from the other four that look just like it.
I want to love this game. Everyone here on this forum wants to love this game. We may be the vocal few, but we are also the dedicated, the core fanbase, the ones who have been grinding every game you (Gearbox) made for the hope of this being the game of our dreams.
