I'm merely level 37 in the game, trying to play online to perhaps level up and have some fun doing the last remaining side quests or even farm The Warrior or one of the other big bosses. However, every time I go into matchmaking it puts me in with a couple of people who are generally level 35 and under who are trying to take on Terramorphous. 9 times out of 10, whatever party I've joined, gets angry that I'm not trying to fight it. There's no way to!
I wish they'd be restricted from even trying it until later in their levels, but that'd also be counter-productive and take away the freedom of playing it from those who won't ever hit level 50...
Silly people. I payed terramorphous a visit when I first beat PT1 at lvl 30 something, but that was just to see what he was like. Even unleashing an entire inventory of rockets didn't even remove a tiny sliver of health from his bar, making it clear it wasn't going to happen.
I imagine a 40 something might be able to take him out if everything went right, but 30 something isn't going to happen.
my friends and I took him on after beating the warrior we knew we wouldn't be able to win, but it seemed a shame not to try
Well yeah, I did as well. I think it's fine to try at least once...and then return when you're level 50 and demonstrate the progression. However, when ever I go into Matchmaking and a group of people who are <level 35 are trying over and over to defeat it. They must be wasting so much money.
