id be very surprised if the didnt patch him but i also doubt that any patch they make will be enough to make him as good as the other vault hunters --- im sure i could find more reasons to disregard everything you said as the incoherent ramblings of a 7 year old with no friends but i dont have the time
But seriously, we got Zero for that, his hellborn and bloodlust trees shine in my eyes.
I did wonder about that when I learned what Krieg's basis was. We had a berzerker and a melee specialist already. Why not do something new instead of a hybrid? They did with Gaige and it worked out well.
The inherent problem with a hybrid is that people can't help but compare it to the others that do the same things. Even if Krieg were superb, he'd either still not be as good as Sal/Zero at their respective games or outclass them at it. Neither is a good result imo. --- "What's wrong with your face?"
