Warning : Overwatch will be mentioned once or twice.
First off , I am loving this game. I always had my eyes on MOBAs but could never look past the isometric view , then SMITE came along and my addiction began. The one thing that was missing for me is a first person MOBA done right and that’s where Battleborn comes in . Imho , it is a MOBA first , FPS second and this is where the confusion comes in.
From gamers (who haven’t played the game) to even gaming site reviews , everyone is comparing Battleborn to Overwatch. No matter how many in the Battleborn community tries to wave the caution flag , some still buy/go into this game with Overwatch game play expectations. This in turn causes bad mm with randoms and Mikos running in the front lines while having a Montana with a high death count.
I truly think that this game could benefit from a more arcade style pvp game mode where the ttk is much lower and the ultimates give put high damage. Cut the respawn time down to 3 seconds and just let everyone loose.
Again . Imho , Battleborn is being unfairly judged by ppl who prefer Overwatch. But if Battleborn actually had TF2 style game play as well, I think it would out do Overwatch at its own game…While also having a great foothold one the fps/moba genre.
