Actually he said they were looking at ways to make it less over powered without ruining what makes it cool.
Basically I'm guessing they'll do this, make the damage the bee adds to weapons be divided by the amount of pellets fired, so if your shotgun fires x17 the damage the Bee adds will be divided by that amount. So Snipers and hand cannons and the rest will be unnaffected but the almighty Bee + CC combo will be nerfed from God mode into Demi-God mode.

I've already played the game fully and am level 50. Why can't I just relax for a bit and be a semi-god?
So what's the point of playing a loot-based game if the gear you have is already the best?
Why do you have to use your best things? Most of the time I'm running around with weapons with cool effects because they tend to be more fun. And, assuming we're only talking about The Bee, I do agree that you shouldn't have it until you're completely done with the game or TVHM.
Do you really think Gearbox is nerfing things because people complained, or because they want an overall well polished game?
Well, in the video, Gearbox does say, "the community feels the Bee is a super overpowered shield that can trivialize end-game play" and "changing certain aspects of it so the community is happy with it." So what do you think? Sure sounds like they're gonna nerf it because of complaints.
You can take my Karma, but you'll never take......MY FREEDOM!
Watch them somehow just make it so that it isn't compatible with certain weapons; or at least has a reduced effect. Like a reverse version of Law and Order. The Bee and Conference Call doesn't work as well together, or whatever. Or something. Or whatever the hot new combination is with it these days. I already feel out of the loop.
Honestly, I don't really care at all either way. Leave it, let people one-shot everything. Fix it, don't let them do it. I sincerely don't care one way or the other. I don't have The Bee, and have no plans to get it.
The response of the community, however, I do look forward to seeing. Whether people complain about it being left alone or people complain about it being changed, the rage will hopefully be palpable.
Are you suggesting that moon should get off his ass and write some stories? He's like the Stephen King of gamefaqs. - Sorbz
