My biggest problem with BL2s final update was how OP8 loot made the last 8 levels so trivial. I didn’t like the idea of leveling up your loot past its level requirement. I enjoyed the challange that OP provided and then all of the sudden I had this new DLC and I was a steamroller. It made my first experiences with The Fight for Sanctuary less amazing. For 8 levels all the drops where vendor trash.
I don’t want to see Mayhem mode do a “good news, bad news” thing every time BL3 drops an increase to the level cap. Maybe I’m worried for nothing as Mayhem only seems to have 3 levels but regardless I would prefer enhanced loot to simply be loot with better rarity or additional effects rather then overleveled items.
