Borderlands 3 Players Seeks Help on Steam Forum

PC player base of Borderlands 3 are seeking help on Steam forum for Borderlands 2 regarding several issues.

After building up a lot of anticipation, developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games has finally released Borderlands 3 last week for PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but is suffering from a series of issues.

Only a day into launch, players on PC platforms start encountering a number of problems with no help at hand. Therefore, they are all rallying up to Steam forums for Borderlands 2 to let other know about their experience.

Shortly after the game was announced, an accidental Tweet has revealed in advance that latest installment of popular looter shooter franchise Borderlands will be an Epic Store-exclusive and PC gaming community become furious.

Initially, a legion of angry fans started review bombing on Steam when that news came out and Valve had to take action by flagging them as off-topic review activity, something that Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford made quite a deal about.

Back then they were mad because of valid concerns and now things are slowly unfolding as Gearbox has apparently released a rushed product within a set release window that remains half-baked, rather than taking time and fixing it.

People are facing all sorts of problems from lack of DirectX 12 support, frame-rate drops, performance issue and even some of them losing their save files. Some are having trouble with FPS drops regardless of having best graphics settings.

RELATED: Play Anthem With Origin Access

Fans are heading to Steam to talk about issues they are facing because Epic Games Store nether have any forums or user review section. They are only going there in hopes to talk to someone who might have found a solution and can help.

Many users are redirecting them to Gearbox Software official forums since no one has a solution for these problems yet. Developers are reportedly looking into it and affected users are advised to log a ticket at official support of 2K Games.

Borderlands 3 having problem is just not an opinion of sentimental PC players who are not happy about EGS but are facing genuine problem. Even many reviewers gave it a poor score due to those same issues they faced playing earlier.

Despite majority of disappointed fans of the game are being from PC platform, BL3 has player complains from consoles as well. Industry experts are suggesting to trade graphics for frame-rates, which is completely unacceptable for a new game.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 Fans Boycott Game Over Controversy

Some players have initially reported for facing trouble streaming because they didn't had super fast internet and Gearbox has put Denuvo in the game, an online DRM that takes up a lot of their bandwidth and ruining their experience.

Even players on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X suffered from frame-rate drops that require a patch very soon. Hopefully, Borderlands 3 will try to and get better in next six months or by the time a finished version finally arrives on Steam.

Borderlands 3 Fans Boycott Game Over Controversy

2K Games has enraged fans boycotting their game for intimidating YouTuber SupMatto over alleged Borderlands 3 leaks.

Ever since developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games announced return of popular looter shooter franchise Borderlands for this year, Borderlands 3 is already being anticipated as "Game of the Year" by critics and fans alike.

So far, the title has managed to stay in headlines for nothing but wrong reasons and lately, a drastic action from 2K Games have sparked controversy that has angry fans rallying over on social media to boycott the game on release.

Up until now, most of negative press surrounding Borderlands 3 had Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford on their headlines but that just changed when publisher decides to go after a YouTuber known as SupMatto over alleged leaks.

Whenever a new game is announced, everyone from game journalist to greater part of interested players wants to know more about it until it is finally released and they heavily craves for juicy information leaks at all times.

RELATED: Shenmue 3 Epic Store Exclusivity Creates Kickstarter Controversy

SupMatto has been a very reliable source of such leaked information on YouTube for some time to his followers, where he discusses Easter Eggs from past games and reveals brand-new leaks that have ties to Borderlands 3.

In one particular stance, Take-Two Interactive, parent company of publisher 2K Games took issue with how he was providing these information and selling them over to his private Discord server for $5 monthly membership in exchange.

RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Controversy Hurts EA Stock Price

Aside from selling leaked information, Take-Two accuse him of using some thumbnails on his account that are taken from various developer streams on Twitch that Gearbox has been using time to time to test out their latest features.

So, they hired two private eyes to investigate his sources and they showed up to his doorsteps on July 25 to question him about leaks and other related details regarding gameplay, which obviously goes too far out of the line.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

Just as they leave, his Discord channel was removed all of a sudden and he received bunch of copyright strikes on his YouTube videos, effectively taken down many of his Borderlands 3 content and almost had his channel terminated.

Take-Two was very keen to know about how he acquired those development stream codes in first place that were actually out in public for months by then and most probably have been worried sick thinking SupMatto was some skilled hacker.

RELATED: Watch Dogs: Legion and HitRecord Collaboration Creates Controversy

It was no crafty work on his part and all he did was watching over an anticipated "Gameplay Reveal" video that was released on April 29. There, name of their testing Twitch account showed up and it was picked by curious fans.

He himself didn't even notice those codes at first and only got to them when many have shared this news over to Reddit and Twitter. So, basically thumbnails that he used were already made public for long before he saw and talked about it.

SupMatto made a response video on allegations made by 2K Games, detailing the whole event that happened.




RELATED: Borderlands 3 and Vampire: Bloodlines 2 Pulled from Epic Mega Sale

Take-Two released a statement saying, they were actually running an investigation on him for past 10 months before making claims and accused him of making profits by breaking their confidential information leak policies.

Not only his actions have broken rules but also infringed their copyright but one can only wonder whether or not they have taken things too far by sending goons over to his house rather than simply contacting him over an issue.

RELATED: Fire Emblem Actor Removed After Controversy

This has majority of fans from Borderlands community voice their utter displeasure against behavior displayed by 2K Games and have kick-started a movement over Twitter that got #BoycottBorderlands3 trending on top.

SupMatto has been making Borderlands related content on his YouTube channel for years and now he is quitting following this incident. This is a billion dollar company like Take-Two Interactive bullying him into submission.

RELATED: Shenmue 3 Backers Won't Get Pre-Order Content

Borderlands 3 seems to be very promising and many were looking forward to it but after a series of mishaps from both developer and publisher studio, angry consumers have rallied up to protest by not supporting the game after all.

Development team at Gearbox Software worked hard on this upcoming release and Take-Two has obviously disappointed many fans by now. Only by properly addressing their fault to players, they may slightly redeem themselves at this point.

Borderlands 3 and Vampire: Bloodlines 2 Pulled from Epic Mega Sale

Following huge price off announcement in Epic Mega Sale, Borderlands 3 and Vampire: Bloodlines 2 is pulled from Epic Store.

Ahead of annual Summer Sale of rival distribution platform Steam, Epic Games Store launched "Epic Mega Sale" that offered customers some pretty sweet discount deals and a generous $10 cash back on purchase worth $14.99 or above.

However, it appears that some publishers were not willing to be as generous with their games as Epic Games and therefore pulled off titles like Borderlands 3 and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 from first major sale of Epic Store.

RELATED: Epic Mega Sale 2019

Publishers often give a hefty 75-80% discount offer over select titles on various occasions but what Epic Store did to compete with Steam was not okay with some studios and they were not even notified on what final sale prices would be.

When this drastic move didn't sit well with fellow publishers, they pulled out games like Borderlands 3, Oxygen Not Included and Vampire: Bloodlines 2 simply because their mega sale was diminishing values of these games prior release.

RELATED: Fortnite X John Wick: Wick's Bounty Limited Time Mode

This unwanted debacle between distribution platform and AAA-publishers could have been avoided easily if Epic Games Store actually communicated with their partners before announcing the mega sale and didn't rush out things.

However, games bought during sales would still be honored at bought price even though some of them are currently removed from storefront. That includes highly anticipated upcoming titles from Gearbox Software and Paradox Interactive.

RELATED: Epic Games Acquires Psyonix

Another title to create some stir during this sales period is Early Access action role-playing game Hades from developer Supergiant Games, which used to sale for just $10.99 and comes at only $6.99 after applying a 65% discounted rate.

Upon launch of Epic Mega Sale, this rogue-like dungeon crawler saw a rise in price cap that ended up being $24.99 and only came down to $14.99 following price off, so that it wouldn't be affected by newly reduced rate at all but players are not happy with such shady approach.

RELATED: Hades: The Beefy Update Live Now

When fans took issues with a sudden change in pricing, Supergiant issued an apology on their official Blog and Discord channel for communicating poorly about their plans but it comes very suspicious why they would do it when the sale went live.

They also cleared out that players can get the game for $10 off by participating in ongoing offer that will end on June 13. From June 14, Hades would be available on $24.99 price since they updated it with so many new characters, events and features.

RELATED: World War Z Season One DLC Roadmap

Although claimed that they do not want to follow business model of Valve's Steam, Epic Games actually did worse by making expensive deals with major game developers to make their titles Epic Games Store exclusive on PC platform.

Response from PC gaming community was largely negative to this practice and some angry mobs even review bombed previous titles from those game studios on Steam; most recent examples being Borderlands 2 and Rocket League.

RELATED: Borderlands 3 to Be Epic Games Store Exclusive

Of course, Steam had their rough days in the beginning and stumbled many times before coming to a steady position. With time, Epic Store can eventually provide a better experience if they truly are here to change PC gaming for good.

Obviously, "Epic Mega Sale" was meant to benefit customers and developers but Epic Games clearly need to learn from their mistake and change their attitude of throwing money at everything whenever there is a problem.
