Posts about Gearbox Software
I know, I know. We've all made our displeasure with the direction of this game, but I still feel it needs to be said fully.
We are all probably avid BL players (with newcomers too I'm sure!). I've got hundreds of hours in BL2, Pre-sequel, 3, and Wonderlands. Hell, I even LOVED Battleborn when it was out. I was very sad when the servers shut down. ANYWAY, I digress.
I've got to say though...I and many others are extremely disappointed with the lack of care that's gone into the game since launch.
First off, let me rattle off a few positives:
From a gameplay mechanic perspective, this is THE BEST Borderlands game IMO. The controls are tight and responsive, the new Spells instead of grenades is wonderful, and the Multi-class system is incredibly inventive and never boring to experiment with
Voice acting, story, and humor. MUCH improved from Borderlands 3 for sure.
Side quests are pretty fun as well
The post launch content, on the other hand, (aside from Blightcaller which is amazing) has been a complete let down. Where are the sprawling new planets/zones like we got in Borderlands 3?? ALL of the Story DLC's in that game were incredibly fun and unique in their own way. BL2 also had great DLC. So we KNOW you're capable of doing better...so what's going on??
This game can't JUST be a cheap cash-in until you eventually release BL4 (which let's be honest is at LEAST 2 years away if not more), since it seems like you're leaving your fans in the dust barely 6 months after a game releases. The Chaos Chambers are great, but they wear out their welcome after I get stuck on Son of a Witch while trying to increase my chaos level.
Gearbox staff...with the D&D theme and Tiny Tina's insanity, you can ALMOST LITERALLY DO ANYTHING YOU WANT with another "Tina Campaign" or whatever. I personally WOULD be willing to pay another $15-20 for a season pass...IF it's content that rivals your previous efforts that have been well received.
Here's an idea: make a new robust story DLC, and then bundle it with the first DLC for like $30 for people who haven't bought any DLC (and less of course if you already have the Mirrors). I'm sorry but all 4 of those mirrors would have been fair for ONE $10 DLC, so that should be reflected in the price moving forward if you're trying to give customers a FAIR value.
So please, let us know what the hell is going on! We all bought the game and are likely enjoying it more than not, but simply changing a featured boss every week ain't gonna cut it if you want to retain and attract new players.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands - great game.
Turns out there's an ape at Gearbox software... this was in the end credits at roughly the 17:50 mark during the "special thanks" segment
