What I’m offering here is as someone who is a fan of the game and who is addicted to it.
This is simply my perspective of why people aren’t playing Battleborn.
- Currently I have 1,691 hours into this game.
- Mostly PvE, 1,392 missions completed.
Since May I’ve played with people from all over the world.
What I’m listing below is not a hate list, it’s simply the things I’ve seen players get frustrated about.
Entire teams loosing connection playing PvP is unforgivable, people do not recover well from that.
Loosing connections in PvE with a full team, overly frustrating as it probably took you an hour to form the team.
Bombs on bombs.
Most of us got used to this but it is very frustrating to the casual player.
Bomb runners throw bombs, that’s a bomb coming at you that is also throwing bombs!
Snipers throw bombs at you. In the Toby dlc, the Engine room, players like Kelvin, wow.
No saved games.
All of us by now have lost connections at the end of a match, sometimes after Aria dies.
What a time to loose everything. And with no local save files this is very very aggravating.
This is a major shortcoming even when compared to other Gearbox games.
Speaking for myself, I currently have 844192 credits. I’d gladly share free loot with friends and new players.
Any of us playing the new dlc’s have multiple copies of gear we could gift to other players.
Friends not able to join a game in PvE.
Borderlands 2 has a great system for friends. People know this.
Everyone has to quit the game in BB if their friend wants in, and all is lost.
…Again, this is not a hate list. It’s simply a voice.
