(My thoughts are pretty mixed up so not everything is in order.)
It pains me to see the state the game is in right now because i and many others waited for years for a new installment that would promise the galaxy to explore from the ending of bl2 and the war including all the vault hunters you can get from tps. But what we get is bad story, declining gameplay, lag, and bugs.
The galaxy we so desperately wanted to explore was just 30 minutes of a city area and what feels like an eternity in a swamp. The war we got were against some handsome jack ripoff that shouldnt even be that big of a threat. The vault hunters we needed to gather are missing or locked behind dlc.
The game has overcrowded lootpools and there are too many annoints which are completely useless that they refuse to properly buff or remove cause it seems like they dont even play their own game. whenever something is “fixed” it really isnt and surprise there now even more bugs.
Whenever people are having a good time its always oops thats not what we intended and they make it worse for no reason.
Zane and amara have been in a good spot for a long time with moze just catching up only to get hit with mayhem 2.0 because their design didnt work the first time.
fl4k has been barely chilling because of their damage output but no matter how much we talk about fl4k and their pets needing survivability or the pets needing damage it falls entirely on deaf ears.
Everyones action skill that is meant to do damage scales ■■■■■■■ horribly as well.
On top of that the mayhem modifiers are cool but it gets irritating when they are completely random i dont feel mayhem i feel like im spinning a wheel Of either die ■■■■■■■ instantly or haha big head. Mayhem should be us raising hell and tearing through enemies but its kinda hard when they spawn death skulls that kill you or you do 75% less crit as fl4k who is a character thats based on crits. Or when fade away one of fl4ks main action skills doesnt even work as it says because its not true crit damage.
They say guns are buffed but they still ■■■■■■■ suck because you gave the enemies on the new takedown eridian steroids!
They dont know what works when it should be painfully obvious like when everyone was rejoicing in buffs because it opens options but when you nerf for the sake of diversity it just takes away.
The worst of it though is when people still blindly worship and praise the game going oh thanks for listening months after the fact when it shouldnt have been an issue in the first place and the some employee replys with some gif of moze giving a thumbs up. Content creators are the worst offenders in this case. I love them to death for providing good content but they are some of the ones with the biggest platform and should be seriously addressing this ■■■■ instead of going oh im sure they’ll fix it when it shouldnt have been broken in the first place they just dont ■■■■■■■ test it enough.
Also add vending machines and fast travel to bosses like fabricator, traunt, eista, wendigo, elenor and the heart, jack bot, scrap trap, gigamind, mouthpiece, kata jr, agonizer, killavolt, kata ball, warden, billy, geneviv, aurelia, and any other boss that doesnt have one because why the ■■■■ do we have to run to all of them when one of your selling points was that you wouldnt have to run to bosses anymore ffs
(Ill add more of i think of anything)
