I recently felt like getting back into battleborn, After a few matches I quickly remembered all the things that made me leave.
Enormous characters that block the entire lane on both sides with no clear way for other characters to get around them… yes you can occasionally and yes there is a single vantage point on some maps but it is still REALLY ANNOYING
Extremely tiny characters that fly around the map. Some characters are so small like Thorn, making any larger character at an extreme disadvantage… even with a little extra health being a target the size of Jupiter shooting at Earths moon is just annoying.
Alright, enough about how much size matters.
Lets talk about my real gripe… the one that even outweighs character balance and how that has always been a hot issue.
Every single map has this problem.
Trying to get from point a to point b.
It is a pain in the ass… even more so when you are a larger character.
There are too many places for you to get stuck on something especially when it LOOKS like you can jump over something, but it is actually more like a solid wall.
That and the way the map deals with pushing and pushing up to your base passed minion waves in any mode, it just seems like it is far too easy to circumvent all the higher tier turrets and chase people all the way back to the spawn… that has always been an issue and no one seems to really gripe about it… Overall this is my main problem with the game, getting around on the maps… sucks period. Always has.
Even after the walls they put up and moved around to stop snipers from exploiting the stairs and so on to shoot people without being seen at all or a tiny pixel of their head showing super small characters with even smaller heads It just still feels like the levels just need some love more than anything.
I tried coming back but found it infinitely frustrating even when winning to the point of uninstalling it once more.
If you really want people to play, give everyone a fighting chance, everyone should have some damage on them enough to punish someone chasing and everyone should be able to get around the dang map without getting stuck or having trouble attacking and retreating.
I will probably get nothing but hateful replies to this without any real constructive feedback.
But I really did get into this when it first came out… I found that it wore on me though and became difficult to get back into… its just my experience… and maybe this is what a lot of other people are running into out there that keeps them from coming back.
