Honestly, I look back SO Fondly on the 2-3 weeks before M2.0 came out. GBX was on a ROLL especially with Moze and Iron Bear. I felt as good as I ever did playing this game: most guns got buffed and adjsuted and now felt perfect, all action skills were viable (except Fl4ks pets), you were excited to play to see what loot would drop as even Purples were useful and powerful, grenades did a ton of damage, and the game FINALLY seemed like it was coming together.
Then came the DISASTER than is Mayhem 2.0. Honestly might go down in history as the worst game update ever released. Completely broke the balance and pacing and build diversity of the game. Its been said a million times: but if you play on M10 its Yellowcake, Sandhawk, or Kaoson. A handful of others might be viable, but even then you are purposely nerfing yourself by using anything other than the Big Three.
The modifiers are buggy, messy, add a ton of visual clutter in an already visually cluttered game, slow down the FPS when too many of them proc, and generally are nothing but an annoyance at best and an outright drag at worst.
Im sorry just need to VENT because before M2.0 I could always see a light at the end of the tunnel, but M2.0 broke the balance of the game to such a degree I am simply UNABLE To even THINK Of a way out of this hole without ruining the balance of the Pre-mayhem levels. The ONLY way is to make a clone of every old legendary and lock it up at M6 and above, that way we can have a Cutsman 2.0 but for M6 and above with 10X the base damage right on the item card, etc
ALL Snipers except Sandhawk
Pretty much 99% of all the old weapons we spent the last 8 months farming, using, and enjoying, barely tickling enemies at M10 even with godly annointments.
Its just so sad. Haven’t touched the game in 10 days. Before that since release haven’t gone a single DAY without putting HOURS into the game.
What a travesty. What a MESS
