Since DLC2 I moved from BL3, and only came back to complete DLC3 and DLC4. It’s a 1+ year old game, only the loyal player base is active now. And looks like the new DLC5 failed to inject some activity in the forums, that says a lot about the “success” the DLC had.
Still, the new DLC doesn’t fix a lot of the issues that the game has:
- Farm for days for the correct weapon + anoint
- Once you have your weapon, you only have a few end game activities to use your new shiny gun
- The game right now it’s a point click adventure, everything dies so fast, even raid bosses in the highest difficulty, that (at least for me) it’s boring
- Since the game is easy, there’s no point in theory crafting or min maxing
Even content creators slowed down a lot their content some days after the DLC dropped. And most of the people in the math community moved on weeks before the DLC.
So, idk, I’m personally waiting for the community patch for BL3 and see what they do. The BL2 patch gave me a lot of extra hours of playtime. But I don’t think that’s going to bring activity to the forums due to the rules, I guess.
To close, I’ll leave this video from Derch:
