There’s alot of discussion here about who your favorite Battleborn is, or which 5 Battleborn will make the best team comps, but this is a cooperative game, and there’s a lack of discussion on who you will be playing with (and against).
Who do you hope to bring with you to the Solus system? Old friends, new acquaintances, Borderlands veterans, first-timers, children, parents.
My #1 co-op partner for this game is my girlfriend of almost 5 years. We met playing Halo together, we both enjoyed BL2, and BB’s couch co-op means we’ll get to experience this game together in its entirety (thanks again GBX for keep couch co-op alive).
My next two companions are my good friends from back home. At the beginning of 2015, I left my home of 24 years to move 1000 miles across the country. I left alot of family and friends behind, including my two best friends from college. We all got BL2 at midnight and played it straight on through for almost 20 hours. Skipped classes, skipped work, and it was totally worth it.
To round out my ideal 5-man team, I’ll welcome my new friend from my new home. We started playing Destiny together a few weeks ago and it’s been a blast. He’s got a natural talent for leading under pressure and I’d like to play beside him in Battleborn. First I have to convince him to buy the game though…
TL;DR - My five man team consists of myself, my girlfriend, 2 old friends, and 1 new.
