Yes I know what you are going to say Gearbox:
“The Playerbase is so small we can’t do this”
But enough is enough, the Winter Update is a relaunch of BB, we all know this or anyone who has played it since release or last few months know what this update is really trying to do. You have visually made it better (Xbox One at least) and changes to UI are great.
But the gulf in the gap between experienced players and those playing for the first time is breaking this game faster than troll use of Benedict and Miko + Tank combo powerplays. Since the update went live (10pm UK time so yeah cheers for that) all I am getting matched up with as a vet at 104 Cmd Rank are players who dont even have a gear loadout to choose. You added a training area for a reason, limit any sub 20 players to training mode or put them in their own player group for match making.
The MM is much faster now, you have fine tuned the countdowns almost pefectly, but seriously it will kill the game and undo the work of the winter update if you keep matching scrub new players with vets whilst the other team is all vets…all I have had is the above which leads to rage quitting or early surrenders which is utterly experience killing.
Enough is enough, the Story/Ops content is not enough if the MP is utterly broken this way. You wont grow a playerbase by having the only playerbase rip itself apart!
