It's a problem of pacing and balance I think. The game needed to escalate it's difficulty at a better pace and place smaller difficulty spikes throughout. As it stands the only real pushback the game gives is asking you to face the bosses forms back to back.

Even setting aside my mistake I don't think the game adequately prepares players for the final encounter. It just never asks you to understand or accel at the games mechanics before that very last moment.

Yeah my biggest problem as well

I dont really get the criticism here. This is literally just "Borderlands but better". Everything's imporoved, everything feels better. Same old story written by a 5 year old, same old humor not even 2 year olds find funny anymore.

Like... this is exactly what I wanted. I wanted MORE Borderlands. Were people expecting this to be Destiny?

It's perfectly valid to criticize something for just doing more of the same. It's true that some people would want that (we explicitly say at one point in this video that if you're just here to play more borderlands you won't be disappointed), but you can want something to evolve and shake up the formula that it established 10 years ago. Also IDK if you watched the full video, but there's some pretty inexcusable performance stuff that we captured in just one hour of game time.
