I'm so mad that you're right that I'm going to act like you didn't say anything and turn your quote into something else because I don't have a decent rebuttal
At least try to make it look like you're not being a troll.
And...well since they can't actually kill anything with the atrocious amount of health the enemies have you'll be sure to see a ton of variety in the modded one-hit kill weapons and infinite shields since that is the only way almost anyone will be able to kill anything anymore.
Well, hopefully they don't just outright ruin The Bee. Which will be hard to do. Change just about anything, and it'll become useless. It's already useless once you take any damage.
I don't really see the point here. Exactly what balance is needed in a game like Borderlands? This game is in no-way competitive. The only complaints about The Bee are from people who can't kill things as fast as people who are using The Bee. So...don't play with randoms who have already acquired it? Seems like a much easier solution than whining to Gearbox.
Gujin would you agree though that there are more important things that need to be patched first? Stuff like modding or the gamebreaking profile glitch that still isnt fixed for some people. Then there are sooo many weapons that are just underpowered, most combat rifles for instance are extremely underwhelming. Or the extremely low drop rate for legendaries which causes people to look for game breaking stuff like The Bee just to speed up the boring that is farming the same boss for 10+ hours to get one Orange. Maybe its just me but id much rather see them buff the underpowered stuff before nerfing the OP stuff. It just seems like there are quite a few concerns from the community that they should work on first before zer0ing in on The Bee. I dont really mind The Bee getting nerfed that much, it wont affect me a whole lot but IMO there are other things that need tweaking first.
As a side note the nerf will most likely make The Bee pretty useless which is a little sad. If they have it drain shield like other amps then its pretty much no longer a legendary, its just a slightly better amp shield which arnt great anyways since you dont really get enough damage for the huge survivability you loose. If all they do is reduce its amp damage some then itll still be used just as often it will just take slightly longer to kill stuff. So it seems like after the nerf everyone will either continue to use it or they will just use Hide instead and everybody will still be running around with identical shields.
