A part of the patch that was not included in the patch notes was some form of a Guardian Rank Cap. But what if someone (loads of someones lol) have already had gone past the devs “Cap” they have set (secretly) ? What happens is this : the game has no idea what to do with the data any time there is an addition to the already full bar. It freezes for 20-45 seconds before the game finally skips the event.
Many that I know play this game has already hit Guardian Ranks of above 1000. Myself as well. If the devs set a cap on something, they should plan to resolve anything that the cap would conflict with so their algorithm can continue without having a heart-attack.
Currently unplayable because of this issue. Even with a new character made. Since you can not Enable/Disable the Guardian Rank like in BL2, the new characters benefit from it.
