The statement has been made by Gearbox that there will be no more new playable vault hunters due to people electing to stick with one “main” vault hunter.
I think this statement exemplifies the saying “Can’t see the forest for the trees.” Its the logic behind the statement is questionable.
So, it seems like some of Borderlands biggest complaints (up there with menu lag and unoptimized loot drops) seems to be no skip-able cutscenes.
Not being able to skip cutscenes contributes to some players not wanting to have to play through the story again. It’s a hassle and takes a long time.
Especially when you are already required to play through it multiple times already what the the traditional Normal>True>Ultimate mode playthrough.
Is it any wonder that players stick with a singular character when they have already completed the story playthru(all cutscenes/dialogue with-standing) THREE seperate times?
Perhaps the issue is not people not wanting to play other vault hunters but the real issue is having to push through three play-throughs/per character? With no way to skip cutscenes/trivial missions this is a time consuming process.
Tldr: add skip-able cutscenes and other time saving features (skip trivial/starter missions, etc) and add new dlc vault hunters like we want.
Unless Gearbox is secretly drawing off our spiritual currency essence by draining our time and desire for fun; if that’s the case just get Hillary to suicide me and carry on.
