OK…I am absolutely pleased at the response to what mayhem 2.0 has brought to the game. and they are going to fix it…and add some additional features and I LOVE it! This company actually LISTENS!
But aren’t we all just kind of missing the REAL point of why this game continues to stay in the “Good” category instead of the “GREAT” category.
I’m talking the elephant in the room…
Endgame, aspirational content…mainly Raids but really ALL endgame content.
BL 3 is seriously…and I mean SERIOUSLY lacking in constantly replayable, aspirational, long term, endgame content.
In talking to friends last night…at this point in the game cycle compared with BL2, we had 9 replayable Raids, and just a ton of replayable sub raid boss level content and missions such as Badasaurus Rex. In BL3…at the present we have 1 Raid Boss and 3 Slaughter Arenas and Proving Grounds no one can be bothered to replay. The difference is HUGE!
Raids drive EVERYTHING: Excitement, builds, theory crafting, farming, tactics, word of mouth, co-opertive play, youtube viewership…EVERYTHING!
Yet we currently have all of…ONE…with another on the way soon (we hope).
For the game to be a “GREAT” long term game…that aspect needs just a TON of work.
GB…I truly appreciate all the patching and fixing and listening to us but PLEASE don’t lose sight of the forest through the trees…
