I really don’t get why everyone just nods along to the threads that want to cut down fl4k’s numbers. I think its dumb. I think its good to be op in a looter shooter and they should buff whats weak instead of cutting down whats strong.
Hold up a second and read this disclaimer before I begin.
Nobody wants your lazer eye comments about how many youtube videos you saw about how dummy thicc fl4k’s damage is. Nobody wants to hear you rant about how you can still kill the heck out of gravetender with the boring pet build. Nobody and I mean nobody wants a regurgitated super mega fl4k nerd guide. I don’t care. Here’s what that nerf to leave no trace did and why I think its dumb to patch this game like its some kind of moba.
I played this game from launch wanting to play with some fancy fine jakobs revolvers. That’s what I did. I had 5 points in that ammo refund skill. Was having some real fun popping heads. Even that nerf to guerrillas didn’t bother me cuz I could still pull it off. Now, this SECOND nerf comes in. So your average revolver has 6 shots. You pop a crit, I get one single ammo refunded…then I plug through the rest of the gun and reload in two seconds to proc it again. These 5 points in that skill are now utterly useless and meaningless. There is literally zero payoff from putting any points into this skill. I didn’t even do that stupid bee combo, I just wanted to have wacky fun times making Jakobs proud. That is no crime.
I played for hours in this way, and suddenly the playstyle is bricked, the guns I grinded and searched for dont feel nearly as impactful, and certainly less viable in mayhem. Like holy heck, I spend half of every fade away cast reloading. Its so lame dude. Stop balancing this game for the geeks that no life this thing like a diablo ripoff. You’re treating a borderlands game like its an esport or like its supposed to be reasonable. A borderlands game, reasonable? Are we playing the same game here folks?
