Things Battleborn does right… a topic thats as much opinion based as it is based off experience in game.
(Going into this I know full well i’m gonna get a lot of FLACK for things i’m about to type down, but they still need to be said.)
It has an awesome story that is a lot of fun to play over and over again.
It feels different, it feels like the world is worth exploring and expanding upon.
The characters are both fun to play and well fleshed out. Each having unique friendships and backstories that both intrest and bother you!
A feel that puts Overwatch to shame.
I currently own BOTH Overwatch & Battleborn and honistly i’ve come to prefer Battleborn as my go to game to play with friends and on Twitch. Overwatch may have fancyer graphics and a slightly interesting world, but the way Blizzard did it makes it feel like a chore to play. Rather then make you happy to play, five rounds of Overwatch have always left me feeling disappounted and frankly unfulfilled. Well Ten or even more rounds of Battleborn have left me feeling the exact opposite as well as feeling, so much more.
Now comes the sass and ramblings!
All the other JUNK that it does poorly.
“RONIN BOTS” Tremendously overpowered and frankly my single most hated enimy in the game it self.
You’re not a true player if the sight of THREE Ronin Bots turning the corner in a Advanced, Advanced Hardcore or an Operation does not either make you panic or scare you in some way shape or form.
They can easily one or even two shot you and on higher levels are either incredibly tough to kill or almost impossible to kill.
They’re WAY over used and they make the game soo much less fun to play.
As the main story is the high point in the game it boggles my mind to try and understand why its not longer, and why we can’t get DLC stories that are not Operations?!
If people enjoy it and it flows better then the Op’s then why can;t we just have more already?
Laziness, Lack of money or time, creativity whats getting in the way of that?!
The unwillingness to either re-work some characters or even try to balance them, in a way that is remotely agreeable. theres quite a few characters that need a re-work desperately in order to be remotely useful in most situations at all. Instead we get good characters NERFED into the ground and useless characters outright ignored! (ISIC, Galilea, and Miko all get the big nerf at almost every patch?!)
Some characters are even placed in difficulty levels that are outright wrong!
Example Aloni (Probably spelled her name wrong) Should be in “EASY” mainly because you don’t need much experience playing healer to do well with her.
Well Miko should be in advanced, with her you absolutely NEED to have experience, have all the right gear and have to understand how she works, as well as if you take just a few wrong helix’s you’ve made a mistake and the failure of the mission or match is on you!
- Loot drops have gone from " OH WOW WHAT DID I GET to OH GOD PLEASE NO MORE GOD DAMN COINS!!!"
The old loot system worked alot better the current “CORE” loot pack is just a 90% chance at junk and coins, and almost a 1/10th chance at a Skin or Taunt. The current Battleborn day fetured items should be what we have available all the time it would just work a HELL of a lot better then how it is now!
- This is gonna be an unpopuler statement no matter what, New and low level players should be LOCKED OUT of Advanced and Hardcore missions until at least level 40 or 50 that way there at least not a detriment to their teams when ever they join a match.
6.Gearbox Battleborn does not WORK as a kids game, it works better for teens and up. It’s actually difficult in a fun way and with more work can be even better, but you need to market it in a way that gets the croweds you will need to keep making money.
That’s all I have for now if I come up with more I’ll put more but for now I think i’m about set.
If anything here upsets you then OK be upset I don’t care i’m not gonna be PC becouse you got upset, and if you agree or have some feedback or counter arguments that are ACTUALLY arguments then i’m all eyes?
Ears? You get the idea…
