Krieg's where it's at.

So, I'm seeing some complaining on here about Krieg that I'm not really understanding.

I was one of the people who tested Krieg before he was released, and I found him to be both extremely fun and effective. It's true that some people disliked him at first, but it was before they understood what type of character they were playing. (Example: One guy hated Bloodlust, but he was sitting way back and sniping people one at a time. BL Krieg works MUCH better when he's close-range with fast-firing weapons.) After getting the hang of him, there was not a single one of us who wasn't in love with him. I'm also seeing people posting things about him being "broken" and it's really just not true. He's good. REALLY good. I was able to do just fine soloing UVHM. It's difficult, sure, but that's the point of UVHM. I had a harder time with Maya.

Don't pass him by because people are spouting off all this nonsense. Seriously give him a chance. AT LEAST more than a day before you say he's the worst character ever. He's a fun, interesting, and unique experience. =)

Have you even read the complaints? People aren't hating on him because they don't understand his play style, they're hating on him because his ish is busted.

I have yet to see how he is broken - I am having a blast with him - you just gotta learn how to play him and he is a killing machine.

"His ish?" Not sure what that is.

And I don't personally remember there being anything busted about him.

So how much does a viral marketer make? Is there a place I can apply or something? Seems like a pretty sweet gig, lying to a bunch of chumps all day.

Nicely put, TC. I don't entirely agree with you on his effectiveness (yet), but kudos on a reasonable argument none the less.

I've never grenade jumped with any character in this game ever, so I don't really see that as a problem. I didn't even know that was a thing. I also never ran into those damage issues. Everything seemed to stack just fine for me.

At this point in time im loving him and have yet to die, so I dont see what the problem is,granted he could be a little better but you can say the same for all characters. his playstyle is so much fun :D i mean come on those conversations he has with himself are hilarious.

4chan has got me paranoid. I am not sure if some people here are marketers/working for gearbox.

Overall, I love Borderlands 2, but Gearbox keeps making some big mistakes with the game and as a company.

Bosses are still boring, the DLC is short and uninteresting (stop giving the development to a 3rd party), UVHM and the last part of playtrough 2 are terribly unbalanced (it just looks like they came up with an algorithm to make enemies harder exponentially while you level up lineally), Gaige also had a lot of terrible glitches (did they even test her?), they had some shady business practices with Aliens Colonial Marines, they revived Duke Nukem and did not polish the product, and now people complain that Krieg has a bunch of issues.

Isaac Clarke would be a killer in Playstation All-stars. Alas, my wish has become true, stay hopeful my friends.
