Does Anyone Else Thing BL2 Is Really Rubbish?
The game itself wasn't so bad, except for some problems, but the DLC is really terrible. The first DLC was pretty poor, but the latest dlc is terrible. I'm only part the way through and really am finding it difficult to raise the enthusiasm to finish it. What on earth happened?? BL1 was fantastic! BL2 by coparison is terrible. They changed stuff that didn't need changing in BL2 and didn't change the stuff that did need changing. End result is that the game just isn't as addictive and fun as BL1. the DLC, well, what can I say? Gearbox.....bad idea to get some other company to develop that. Really bad idea.

I love it.
Piratebooty wasnt best dlc.
But the raid bosses are hell of a fun!

What you mean "They changed stuff that didn't need changing in BL2 and didn't change the stuff that did need changing."
Could you please explain that? :)

There is a long list. Things they changed includes the weapons. The new weapons are not as memorable as the weapons in BL1, and there don't seem to be as many variations in stats for each weapon as there were in BL1. They aslo significantly reduced the drop rate in BL2. In general, they did improve some areas of the weapons, but in the process managed to make many things worse. They also gave badass types significantly more health than ordinary types. Too much. It made the game unbalanced. And for some reason, they also reduced the effect that adding more players has to the drop rates. Why on earth would they do that?

Things the didn't change, well, why on earth didn't they add a difficulty slider? A lot of people complained that the game was too easy or too difficult. And in the latest DLC, they STILL haven't added the difficulty slider, they just made the game easier. Great, except I was one of the people complaining it needed to be more difficult. And another thing they didn't change, well, have you ever tried inviting friends to play? Unless they happen to be almost the same level as you, then they are either way too powerful, or they have to hide in corners all the time becuase one bullet and they are down!

I kind of ignored most of the problems for the main game, but the DLC is so boring that it was the straw that broke the camels back.

They did it because they know well the duping rates.
Higher droprates would completely destroy the games challange.

Sounds logical to me :D And I gotta admit, I really like it!

I dont think so.
Maybe you are just unlucky?
I have very good droprates on MP.

At this point I think you are right.
But I think this game generally too easy, but therefore you have the raidbosses.
Difficult sliders or 2 playthroughes, think bothes would work.
You will always have ppl saying its too easy/too diffrent.

every day i see a new post of you being mad about the game or something about stupid things, i don't understand lol the game will not change for you so you you really don't like it hink you just have to stop play it and don't buy the dlcs, is just that simple.

Thats the Mario-syndrome. Fans are screamin that the old Mario was great and they want the old feeling back. Then some of the oldschooly thingys get added and everyone is crying how terrible made that feature is. To get to my point, would you even recognize if they just put the new optics over the old Borderlands?
In my opinion I hate to love most of the changes. And if you don´t like it... why the hell are you crying every few days? If you don´t like it, stop playing and admit you did a mistke buying this game. Just stop flaming over publishers and early dlc announcement. (for all the dlc flamers: BL2 was ready somewhat around june, they just waited for the summerhole to pass. so stop crying how this is all just cut off content.)
I post this for every crying child out there, who got a BMW instead of a Mercedes for birthday.

My only "gripe" and suggestion would be to raise the lvl cap. Going through the latest DLC capped out with a decent kit, I don't care about cash, eridium, xp points, and even the tokens since even my purple / pink weapons beat down the legendaries offered. They just need to cater to the nuts like myself who have maxed out the experience. People just starting out won't notice a thing but gamers with two or more lvl 50 characters will dig it. Just keep it interesting.

Unfortunately I was stupid enough to buy the season pass. So I am going to whine about it every day until all the DLC is out. And I tell you what is just as simple - don't read my posts!

My only gripes are how the makers of BL2 junked the "revolver" weapon category and put them in with naff repeaters. The revolvers in the fist game were awesome, as well as the "double Anarchy" smgs', which there seems to be a chronic shortage of this time around. Also, despite what others are saying, I'm having a real hard time liking Tiny Tina. She irritates the sh*t out of me, a horrible character! Everytime she spouts dialogue, I just want to shoot her in the face, and have done on several occasions.... Just without the desired result : D...Other than that, it's a fantastic game, personally the best thing I've played in a good long while. But better than BL1? In most aspects certainly, just not in others.
