    You guys wouldn't have this problem if you had made the Epic Store account first!

    Randy doesn't understand why people grow fond of a specific gun when playing. He doesn't understand anything about Borderlands other than it being their only other franchise that wasn't a commercial failure.

    Sasuga Randy, you managed to make a mandatory bandaid elemental status even more bland by giving it the same extra dot component as every other element.

    Yeah, the game is confirmed to be the same bland shit as the last two. Borderlands 3, more like Borderlands 1.3.

    Borderlands 1 > Borderlands 3.

    Replaying 1 I'm remembering all the shit that makes 2 worse and slag is at the top of the list. It's just a shitty forced mechanic to compensate for the enemy health bloat on UVHM because they're too lazy to program simply difficulty scaling as easy as you see in Derpablo 3 -- give prefixes to enemies so they do additional fire damage, or explode on death, or whatever. Also the leveling curve in BL2 is a massive and tedious grind. In BL1 I was leveling fairly effortlessly to 69 to just killing enemies while going through zones. In BL2 I have characters around 61 and I can spend an hour killing enemies and maybe gain a quarter of a level. It all seems to be tied to questing. And you don't want to repeat the same derpy quests for the seventh time.

    Who gives a shit, really? I don't do D1P and have a backlog bigger than my dick(so it's huge), so by the time I might want to play their 'exclooosives' they'll be everywhere for a couple of dollars.

    So much pointless autistic screeching.....

    I had this exact thing as well, same name and everything. I was sure I didn't have an Epic account before but thought it might have been a really old one I'd forgotten about. Be careful, when this happened I also had attempts to get in my old Blizzard account, my old EVE online account and a couple of others. More worryingly, they somehow managed to get a charge through Humble Bundle to subscribe me to their monthly deal. I spotted it and Humble refunded, but it was fecking weird as it shouldn't have been possible to get a payment through with the 2FA I have on the account.

    Is Humble anything to do with Epic now? *tinfoil hat*

    That's what they meant when they promised developers a certain number of "guaranteed sales".

    More like big quotes on phones suck. No idea how your name managed to get in there, though.

    Now we've got Epic store exclusive patches. Competition sure is great.

    the shutting down of goodolddownloads becomes more and more a true tragedy. it's getting close to the status of holocaust.

    That really depends on whether Epic is getting people to use their store. The extra 18% revenue is nice, but not if you drop X number of sales. Though presumably if Epic doesn't give up (which I doubt they will) eventually more and more people will give in, making that number easier to hit.

    the better percentage makes sense only and only if you can make the same number of sales , which is absolutely not happening otherwise they'd be rubbing their penises on our faces the whole day already, and it's impossible all the parties involved couldn't know this beforehand. it's all a ridiculous farce, i hope it's going to end like one, and soon.

    You don't think Epic will want to make money at some point? Sweeney might pretend they're running a charity, but they're not.
