Gearbox almost destroyed my love for this game...

I played through pt1 with Axton and it was fun. Got the the Tiny Tina dlc and it was difficult at first but it eventually leveled out and I was able to finish it.

Then the real pain started. I started true vault hunter mode and the game was way more difficult than it needed to be. I didn't do a lot of the side quests because most posters recommended saving a lot of them for level 50. I ended up facing the Warrior with subpar level 47 weapons. It took way too long to beat him with those.

During the later points in the game, I almost gave up because my shields and health was being dropped with one shot from the enemy. Hero's pass was a real pain in the behind getting through. The game even started spawn camping me when my character revived on Hero's pass. What tha?

I don't think i'll ever play that part of this game again. Here's to hoping the BL3 is a lot more balanced. Playing tvhm made me feel as if Gearbox wanted me to just give up with the sheer number of enemies sent at me at the same time. All able to destroy my shields and health in one shot.

Axton is already at a disadvantage with 2 enemies on the screen but I was facing many more and it got to the point where my turret did all it could to take out one larger enemy..well that if it wasn't destroyed as soon as I put it out there.

Well, I'll end this little rant here. I'm sure this isn't the first time you're read something like this.

Yep this is not the first time someone has whined about the game's difficulty.... but i don't think anyone has complained that TVHM is too hard

Honestly if you get to UVHM you will realize that TVHM is a walk in the park

Well there's your problem. It's not Gearbox's fault you were underleveled. The reason you may want to delay certain quests is if you want the reward to be level 50. That only matters for a few quests were the reward is unique, and you have a need for it in your build.

Nah, the first I'm hearing of it, but you're an awesome warrior, a real stand-up individual to persevere through the turmoil. Now, my question for you is, do you prefer cream filling or chocolate chip, or both?

Well, progressing through the game should never rely on doing side mission off top.
