Started a new character from level 1 with a badass level of 13569, and its noticeably harder. Was hitting lots of badass enemies very early on. Reached Wilhelm, and he's three levels over the mission ranking, and always has four to six repair drones hovering about with those reflecting shields. He was a pushover last time. Now he's dropping me constantly. WTF?

Ok, hadn't heard about the Wilhelm change. Was hoping to not have to level up with side quests so much this time, but he's three levels over me. I thought the whole point to the story was that he wasn't all that tough, at least not there. Oh well.

Definitely feels like I'm seeing harder enemies, though. More badass nomads than not. Multiple bruisers where there would be one or two previously. Something has knocked the balance off a bit, and I say this after soloing TVHM.
