Apparently it was said in stream that they don’t want players just chasing the best gear in the game, and instead would like people to create their own playstyles with the things they find?
This doesn’t make much sense to me, because there is always going to be that group of players like myself who enjoy chasing down the best gear and becoming OP, for me it’s because I like having a goal and knowing what I want to go for. I’m sure others have different reasons for doing it, and a lot of it boils down to enjoying feeling powerful.
I feel like they can still achieve what they want without hitting everyone’s favorite gear with the nerf bat which so many like myself loathe. They just need to buff the under performing gear. Because as it is, it definitely feels like they’re trying to force us to play how they want us to play, and that sucks.
