Serious question for people pro-bee nerf

#11mango95Posted 11/14/2012 12:57:51 PM
I am against the bee nerf because I think people should have the option to play how they want. This is supposed to be a fun, over the top game. Why limit the options of how you can play the game?

That being said, I understand some people not wanting the bee + cc combo dominating the random multiplayer side of the game. My question to Gearbox is why not just make adjustments to the bee when in multiplayer? Why nerf it for all of us?

And to the people who call it a crutch. Not all of us who like using the bee need it as a crutch. I got three different characters into PT 2.5 before I ever found a bee. I like having it for when I have to blow through an area to get to a boss to farm. With the incredibly low drop rates for legendaries, I like to save time getting to a boss because I am going to have to go there a lot (usually) to get a legendary drop.

You don't have to kill enemies to get to a boss though. You can just run through the area...

Where did people get this asinine notion that "I should be able to play a game however I want!!!"? No, you'll play it the way the developers designed it. That's how games work. If they don't want the content of the game trivialized and opt to correct that then fantastic. At the very worst they're constantly working on the game and "trying" to improve it. Whining about it is ridiculous.

Because when people buy video games they think they own it.

They're not going to say no because of the implication.

They do own it...they just don't own the rights to the intellectual property.

When you buy a book you don't curse the author because he didn't end it the way you wanted him to. I mean you can...but he did it with his own idea in mind and as an art form you're just suppose to about it the watt he intended.

To Panopictonguy:

It is true that you can just run through but sometimes it is also fun to blow a few guys or loaders our of your way.


To Theismos:

I am not saying I should be able to play a game however I want if it includes uses modding or a glitch in the game that causes problems and needs to be fixed. When it comes to be the Bee, I am just using what the developers put in the game. They made the Bee what it is. If they do not like it now they should have taken it out or changed it before we got to use it. I just think is wrong to nerf a legendary item when many players spent a huge amount of time to find it. That is why I would have liked a different approach to fix the issue in multiplayer.

They bought the right to play it how the developers want. There is no owning it. You only have the physical property of the book same with a disc game.

It's the same thing with xbox live. You paid for the right to xbox live you do not own xbox live in any shape or form.

But only if you can do it one shot, right?
