So as i go around social media, reddit, facebook, twitter and what not, i m starting to see this pic being shared around with the title “Battleborn-is-a-visual-mess-dot-jpeg”
Now i know we all are Battleborn fanatics in here and it’s ok to feel enraged on how people use this image to show how they are discouraged from checking out the game. We are all bias so let’s all admit this, people who actively share this pic were probably bias against the game already so no used arguing against them.
What i want to bring here is that this picture is true and we need to discuss this. In story mode (of which this pic is taken from), i am bombarded with colors that contrast against the background (like say El dragon’s electric splash attack or Miko bright green circle when he summons his ult), objective highlights, items on the grounds and notification popping up on the side. In PvP we don’t see that as much but still it appears, sometimes blocking my view to realize Melkaa or Calderus is shooting at me. And i honestly think this is something that either needs to be tone down or at least adjustable in the options of the game (with default setting set to off) in future updates. I am used to all this “S*** appearing on my screen” like some people commented on sites under this pic because i went through the closed and open beta and played this game since launch. And it does help me stay out of traps and ultimates. For newcomers who have no idea how this game works however… i can see why this is a turn off for them.
I could site examples of games that tried their best to simplify their on screen content to avoid this after complaints but then we’ll be here all night. This is something that Gearbox can fix in the future.
