None of these nerfs, Kaoson, Sandhawk, 300/90 annointment should have been done.
I don’t appreciate being told how to play or what weapons to play with, so nerfs to weapons people like to encourage more usage of other weapons annointments actually just make me not ever want to use the weapon or annointment that was hit ever again. Some cases are more egregious than others such as the three I mentioned. If they feel worse than they used to why would we ever want to use them again? If you buff other weapons, then we will naturally give them a try and if we like them, use them more. But that should be our choice.
It goes back to again saying, GB should be testing things properly to ensure they are working properly before they release instead of making us the guinea pigs and making us be the ones to pay for it when they change or take away whatever is being changed.
I really feel no desire to play right now, other than testing a few things like how the Kaoson felt(annoying to hip fire now and not as good) to trying the Takedown. I died once from falling and just didn’t care to continue. That stems mostly from the annoying nerfs, and to the fact that none of the Takedown loot is worth it, so why subject myself to it before its adjusted for enemies being too spongy. I haven’t played otherwise.
My desire to play this game stems primarily from feeling powerful as I progress and collect new and cool gear, and enjoying said gear. When nerfs happen, along with the other issues mentioned. I just don’t feel the interest to play. I avoid games that have a habit of nerfing things intentionally to save myself frustration. Don’t make this a game or series I start avoiding, please Gearbox.
I’ll also add that again I would have been okay with a damage nerf to compensate for the lowered scaling on mayhem 7-10 but what they did instead was to change the functionality of these weapons and annointments so they now feel worse to use.
