A while back there was a conversation a lot of people were having and a lot of people shared a sentiment with.
“Is Battleborn dying?”
For a long time, that was definitely true for many reasons (looking at you, pre-nerf Alani). However, it’s definitely no longer the case. We all knew Battleborn would pull through and come back, and boy howdy did the community deliver.
I’ve seen more new players coming in (mostly from Overwatch) and had faster match times than I have in quite a while. When I go in with my high-ELO team of 5, I see far more full teams of level 100’s and almost never see the same players twice.
Characters are more balanced than ever and I see players doing well (and even out-performing otherwise “better” characters) with Toby and Whiskey Foxtrot, and fewer players that can effectively team carry with “OP” characters like Oscar Mike or Rath.
It’s good times all-around.
