I’ve been playing Battleborn for a while now and I thoroughly enjoy it. The story, multiplayer, and humor make this game astonishing. Yet, there are some flaws. Mainly with the PVP part.
I am not going to talk about characters that may seem overpowered. Instead, I want to talk about the leveling. In both the beta and the game release I have been seeing this frustrating issue. When I queue for a match and find a match, the levels of the players vary significantly. This doesn’t happen every single time, but it is frequent enough to annoy me.
Sometimes I get matched with a team of low level (1-8) players against a team of levels 25-40. It just seems unfair pairing a level 4 against someone who is 10 times their level. It causes people to disconnect and overall delivers poor gameplay. It works from both perspectives. A new player buys the game and jumps into PVP, unaware of some concepts, and charges in at a level 30 player who is more experienced. A level 40 player may be playing with other high levels and gets paired against a bunch of level 3’s. The high level player doesn’t get a challenge he/she may want and the low level get’s destroyed and may regret getting the game.
Overall, please make the PVP match players with other players of their level. I really like the game, but I don’t want to play when I am placed against someone who is 20 levels above or below me.
