      here are things that went wrong in BL3
      >lead writer for BL2 left ( the guy who made handsome jack + directed voice actors to go as wild as they want) resulting a very soulful characters
      >story was disappointing to say the least
      >dialogue felt like it was witting buy a middle schooler, or worst .. a feminist
      >as a result, you ended up playing the game soloy for the gameplay and giving less than a shit about whats going on the borderlands world
      >side missions do not show the rewords, its a guessing game or you may go to the wiki to know what are you in for
      >map UI can use a lot of improvement, I found it annoying to deal with
      >maps are too big for no reason, and borderlands wasn't knows for its enjoyable driving
      > skill tree is so boring, you get 4% dmg on this 12% reload speed on that, oh and this thing will stack (up to 5) if you did 3 backflips withing 7secneds time frame
      >even the ultimates is not that exciting
      >DLC's are off
      >weapons brands kinda lost its meaning( sines every gun looks and feels the same)
      >I found weapons firing sound not that great or lack uniqueness
      >weapons rarity system is fucked now (lvl13 blue gun can out damage lvl17 legendary) SO WHATS THE GOD DAMN POINT OF MAKING A RANKING SYSTEM !!?
      >spent most of my time reading weapon side effects (43% more damage 12% more acc ..etc) ITS ON EVERY BLOODY WEAPON ! just make them easy to compare

        True but this isn't any different from the rest of the series. Go look up BL1 and 2 skill trees if you don't believe it.
        >DLC's are off
        What does this mean?
        brands kinda lost its meaning( sines every gun looks and feels the same)
        Not really. Dahl is an all-rounder, Atlas is anti-shield and anti-mobility, Hyperion is mega accurate with ADS utility, Jakobs is low ROF huge damage, Maliwan elementals, Vladof rate of fire. Torgue and Tediore became shit though and that was a letdown. Each manufacturer gets different bonuses for their guns, you'll never see a Jakobs gun getting +ROF or a Vladof gun getting +headshot dmg unless it's some unique hybrid legendary and those are rare.
        >weapons rarity system is fucked now (lvl13 blue gun can out damage lvl17 legendary) SO WHATS THE GOD DAMN POINT OF MAKING A RANKING SYSTEM !!?
        This is one of the biggest problems imo. Guns are not worth keeping for long until you're max level.

      Gameplay and combat was as enjoyable as the previous games but pretty much everything else about it was such dogshit that it actively hindered the rest of the game. Story, characters, dialogue, etc. all trash.

Normally I don't give a shit about story/dialogue as long as the gameplay is good, but its so shit it actually detracts from the overall experience. That and it's too fucking easy, why can't I pick a harder difficulty than normal? Do I seriously have to complete the entire game first?

        Zane was pretty shit for half the game's life span. Just because he's god tier now doesn't change that fact.

        Those games would be amazing if they dropped a main story narrative entirely and long dialogues while you run through emptiness

        Make it more like doom action to action to platforming to action to boss fights

        Have the sidequests too

        Wonderlands introduced that chaos chamber shit, but what gearbox needs to do is make the whole game more of a "Palace of the Dead - FF14" style dungeon crawling or area mapping after a certain part of the game. The static areas and story get boring to do, where as having infinite possibilities to re-do areas and not expect the same lay out would change it up a lot.

    This game series always has the problem of "you need this particular legendary/legendaries with this build setup or you gimp yourself" and it gets boring that 99% of the weapons are useless.

    most people point to the terrible story and characters but honestly - i think it was the mechanics. all of the playable characters were so 'safe' in BL3. very few of their builds or abilities felt wild or unbalanced, to the game's detriment. i picked the melee chick only to find that she barely melee'd and just kind of supplemented shooting with it. i tried the mech suit chick and her mech suit lasted like 10 seconds and did less damage than her guns. all of the bonuses and multipliers were so small that the characters felt more defined by their equipment than their class or talent build. no sniper/melee zer0 dichotomy, no turret axton turrets annihilating a room from cover, no sheriff nisha aimbotting the whole screen to death in a split second; just nothing. it felt like the whole experience was sanded and polished to a mirror sheen and lost all of its fun edges in the process. all of the playable characters felt safe and inoffensive and balanced and BORING.

      >i tried the mech suit chick and her mech suit lasted like 10 seconds and did less damage than her guns
      Spotted the person who only played around launch and then dropped the game. Moze is now the most busted character in the game, you can complete mayhem 10/11 with only her mech and no gear, that's how powerful she is. There are plenty of ways to play each character now, albeit some characters benefiting more from the dlc skill tree than others.
      While I do agree that each playable character is "safe" to play I'd rather have each character viable throughout the entire game than BL2's broken mess of character balance where some characters have extreme trouble (if not almost impossible) beating end game content.
      Also this goes more against gearbox fucking up the content itself and not the characters but some raid bosses accidentally have double their HP on OP10, so super busted characters like Salvador are the only ones who can clear it while still allowing you to retain your sanity.

        At least in 3 the bare minimum you have to play through the story is 4 times (once for each character) because TVHM serves no purpose anymore due to mayhem mode.

    Tales >>>>>> BL2 (aka Handsome Jack) = TPS (This originally had pretty good setup for a cool BL3 before the actual BL3 released) > BL1 >>>>> BL3

    Aesthetics:
    BL2 (Good variation of biomes and designs) > BL1 > TPS = BL3

    Raid Bosses:
    BL2 > BL3 > BL1 > TPS

      Agree otherwise, but I really cant place BL1 so high on aesthetics when you spend so much time in utterly similar looking Rust Commons areas. I mean, I kind of like that deserty and kind of Mad Max -ish look, but too much of it is just too much.

        Yeah I see your point exactly, I only put BL1 that high as the mad max-like look is done really well and I still find BL1 areas alot more memorable than TPS and BL3.
        When I try to think of areas from those games they all just kind of blend together, only really remember the hammerlock dlc areas in BL3 for it's unique look and small sections of other parts of BL3 but I rate that pretty low since I still remember entire areas from BL1 despite how everything's just wasteland

Just give us a pure "vanilla" way to play the endgame, none of these forced gimmicks that ruin certain builds and are overall not fun to play. Who the fuck thought the modifier that makes some enemies spawn completely immune to different elements was a good idea?

    Bad launch. The game is noticeably better now, but it started out with poor performance, crashes, bugs, badly balanced skills and weapons, no endgame content.
    Over time these problems all got fixed but the damage was done because the word of mouth had already spread.

    And the writing of course. The DLCs were much better in this regard but the base game's writing is insultingly cringe. The lack of sincerity and horrible comedy just ruined everything.

      1 falls apart instantly once you leave the Arid Badlands, aka the first major area. 2 and 3 are full of faults but at least they feel like finished games from start to finish.

    Just started BL 1. How do I change from soldier? I dunno but the sentry sucks

      Make a new character or use a mod. Also the sentry can become good with the nuke upgrade along side another upgrade, lets you throw it with infinite range and it have a mini nuke explosion when it deploys.
