I thought that was part of the script?!

Plz add Vault Baby to this list.

So… no real news on the BL3 front, then?

It’s still running… I’m typing the notes up live.


Was there stats for Haunt?

Oh, good. I shall continue to scoff at the Supermen who claim it’s so easy. I prefer to think most of them are just ignorant of exactly how much better at the game than the average player they are. :wink:


Wow that’s way less than I expected.

I hope that DLC 3 art is an indication we’ll be getting a mount as a new vehicle.

I hope Athena will be in it.


i think the 14% success rate is incorrect. How often does Wotan’s head glitch out? How much does that screw with their data success rate? At least half my wins have this happen. Not saying it’s not hard, just that this seems to be an issue.

What is it with Allistair and Threshers?? :laughing:


Well, maybe he’s a conisseur of a particular genre of japanese animation…


It is easy, reason why its so low is due to wotan top half bugging out unable to complete. Its a mess and the reason i quit playing bl3

I am RATHER EXCITED by the dlc info.

Wedding looks awesome, I hope dlc 3 captures a taste of BL1 Pandora, and very happy indeed that krieg gets more story.


If your conjecture is true AND we assume more ppl attempted MT because it’s more accessable THEN it stands to reason that Wotan derping would have a statistical impact. So given the fact that the rate remained unchanged it suggests that derping is probably not the issue.


I’m pretty sure success rate is computed from success/attempts. Which means so long you get past the Valkyries, it doesn’t matter how many times you die so long you finally beat it. So if you simply restarted from the previous checkpoint if the head glitches out, then killed Wotan proper, it would count as a success.

But will there be an actual bordello for squids?
