Recently, Gearbox released a hot """"fix"""" which will soon be (or probably already is) a patch to Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. This """"fixes"""" a bosses drop rate of a certain legendary weapon, by "fix" I actually mean "lowers". Now, normally this wouldn't be a big issue, drop rates were lowered in Borderlands 2 so whatever, right? Well, the big issue is how farming works in TPS. In BL2, you would be able to simply farm an enemy over and over again until they drop the piece of gear, but in TPS this was inexplicably left out of the game. Most minibosses that drop specific gear are one-time encounters, which means that if you kill them and they don't drop that elusive and insanely rare piece of gear, you're SOL. This essentially destroys any notion of endgame TPS could've possibly had. The biggest part of endgame in BL2 was farming bosses for better gear so you can... uh... farm some more. It was a skinner box, sure but if you like that sort of thing it was fun. But TPS removes any semblance of it being a shoot n' loot by almost completely removing the "loot", there were a few exceptions to that but for the most part, farming legendaries usually had a player use the grinder, which essentially also removes the "shoot" from this first person SHOOTER. Standing around and interacting with UI is nowhere near as fun as shooting things I shouldn't have to say this. BUT, I hear you saying "how does that make them worse than EA? I mean sure they destroyed the endgame for TPS, but at least they haven't put in always online DRM, right?" The thing that makes Gearbox worse than EA is their complete disregard to fans. They have flat out ignored fan complaints about the endgame content, and have constantly made the game worse and worse through PATCHING. Yeah, say what you will about EA, at least they acknowledge that their fans exist. Gearbox has done nothing to improve TPS, and has somehow made the game less and less enjoyable with every new patch, and that is absolutely inexcusable. It's inexcusable for any company. There is no reason at all I should be worried when I see that TPS has a new patch out. No player should have to play in offline mode just to avoid patches, and yet that's what's happening. Hell, more people are currently playing BL2 then there are playing TPS on Steam. If I were Randy Pitchford, and I saw these kind of numbers, I'd probably take some community input. But alas I am not, and he hasn't. So yeah, **** Gearbox and everything they stand for.
