Right now I think Borderlands 3 isn’t in a good spot and i returned to Borderlands 2, to me is better in so many aspects. Please Gearbox, start listening and communicating more with your community. It would need so little effort to make BL3 a great looter shooter, even better than BL2 (maybe not for the story ):
-Please make possible to reroll annointments with eridium: the large loot pool and the number of annointments, make impossible to farm any weapon. In Borderlands 2 you had only weapon parts, here you have too many variables that make farming boring and not fulffilling. This would also make eridium more useful, encouraging players to farm another resource;
-make the mayem modifiers optional: you nerfed the recursion for optimizing the game, but you leave all the modifiers that make the gameplay a total mess. Returning to Bl2 or Destiny 2 to me the scene and the gameplay is more clean and legible. I think also that randomly modifiyng the efficiency of a build isn’t a great idea. A solution could be using this modifiers to increase the lucky for each one active and to obtain some special weapons, or limit them to some kind of content like proving grounds.
-gear balance: searching for builds and finding so many using the same 3 ******** weapons (light show, Flipper, etc…) breaks my heart. I think Borderlands 3 is the best when it comes to diversity of weapons and gear, but you can’t use them in endgame. I think that even BL2 (a poorly balanced game with a lot of OP weapons, released 8 years ago) has more viable gear than BL3. You should stop nerfing weapons and start making the weakest (Jakobs, Tediores, and so many many others) strong like the ones in the meta.
-Please make Seasonal events permanent: seeing the team putting so many efforts to create new activities and beautiful enviroments only to see them disappear after a short period of time makes me ungry. This is not a Game as a Service! if I want some seasonal content I play an MMO. Borderlands is a CO-OP Looter Shooter, and I want to play it When I have the time. It needs more content that is already in the game but it is unplayable.
-After you balanced your game, consider adding 1-2 Vault Hunters;
I’m sorry for my english, but I’ve read so many constructive discussions from this great community and it seems that they 're being ignored. I hope that Gearbox will start listening more to us and communicating more about their plans for the game. I’ll play Borderlands 2 until then.
