Seriously, her death was BEYOND pointless, unnecessary and it didn’t make a lick of sense. Yes i get it, you’re supposed to feel some type of attachment for the characters and hate the twins even more, which i only found annoying (and their deaths were pretty tame compare to the atrocities they did, they just fell over asleep lol…)
But her getting turned to dust makes NO sense while Lilith was fine after getting her powers sucked? why? that’s writing inconsistencies, especially since she’s a vault hunter…you know, can get resurrection from New-U stations? I’m not the only one who thinks so either:
Maya’s death felt kind of weird to me because it seemed to mirror Lilith’s scene where her powers were stolen by the twins almost exactly, and yet this time she’s fully disintegrated while Lilith wasn’t because…? It felt a little unfair that she died while Lilith’s life is spared like five times over in the course of the game for plot armor reasons alone. In the end, I think it worked, but again, Tyreen and Troy are still more annoying than menacing and this didn’t really change that.

Getting her powers removed is fine, having them transfer to Ava, fine i guess, though no one likes her…but bring her back in one shape or another, two missions in and she dies…really? Terrible! It honestly soured my entire rest of my game…i didn’t have that in any of the other Borderlands games…think that speaks for itself in quality writing, don’t you think?
