I just wanted to share some thoughts with you guys. I’ve seen a lot of fear surrounding overwatch and how it could take some of battleborn’s player base.
Ive been a blizz fan for a long time. And I’ve been waiting for overwatch a long time. So was my hype, I started to search anything that could entertain me before its release. and then I found battleborn’s open beta.
I never heard about gearbox, borderlands… it was a complete new experience for me. And it was insanely fun. It had the complexity, the depth and the mechanics I was looking for. But then the beta ended and I though “well, now let’s wait for ow’s beta to come out”.
But when it came out, and after playing battleborn for a while, it felt like an empty experience. Really quick matches, without any sense of progression. With REALLY unbalanced heroes. And, as a team based shooter, with people being more concerned about shooting rather than doing what they should do, it wasn’t as cool as I was hoping. And Bastion pwning everyone and so on.
Surprisingly, I found myself returning overwatch’s pre order, and buying battleborn. After all the time I’ve been waiting for the first one.
I think I’m not the only one with this experience. And I believe, this game has the potencial to really compete against overwatch.
Just wanted to share with you guys
