Battleborn "Day" Underway

The Battleborn website has details on a "Battleborn Day" organized by the community to support Gearbox's first-person shooter/MOBA. This is officially taking place tomorrow, but it's already underway, and will run through Sunday morning. The idea is to entice new players to the game and guide them through the learning experience. This originated on the Battleborn Reddit, and Gearbox is supporting the event, though they haven't gone so far as to make the game free-to-play for the duration. Here's what they are doing:
We’re so impressed and humbled by your dedication (even ISIC is beyond words). As a thank you to the wonderful Battleborn Reddit folks and to show our love for this community, we’re “flipping switches” to help make this event as epic as possible. Here’s a quick glimpse at what you can expect but be sure to check out tomorrow’s Battleplan for the full details.

WHEN: Friday (11/11) at 2pm PT (7pm ET) until Sunday (11/13) at 8am PT (11am ET)

  • The badassest of badass in-game events: prepare for Lootpocalypse, Play with the Devs, Double XP, and Double Credits all rolled into one phenomenal weekend!
    A special “Battleborn Day Queue” with all kinds of fan-favorite maps and modes
  • Try out all 29 Battleborn heroes! Every character will be temporarily unlocked for all players
  • Enjoy 20% off all skins and taunts in the in-game Marketplace

Pffft it's gearbox's own fault for trying to release a MOBA in a crowded market. Like jesus there are so many free to play multiplayer games, why would any young kid want to pay for a 2nd tier game?

The whole concept behind battleborn was retarded from the get go, whoever greenlighted the game should have been shot to begin with.

The crowded MOBA-FPS market? uhh, I can think of 2 other games?

It's a very under-exploited sub-genre, and SOME game will come along and do well enough that it will get alot of players...

But come on, even if it wasn't a pretty damn niche genre, that's not a reason to knock something. "those indy devs pumping out ANOTHER platformer game, into a crowded platformer market". 30 years and 1000's of titles and people still like a good platformer. They also still make movies under the "Comedy" and "Drama" banners. SO PLAYED OUT! GAW!

New players, in Battleborn?



Where would they come from after googling the game?

I miss this game, well, I don't miss waiting 20+ minutes to find a match, but the game was fun. They can't go F2P fast enough.

I'm guessing that they still have a marginal following of players on console that they're going to try and squeeze some money out of first, then slam the door on their nuts by making all that F2P.

Pretty tragic, because it's a genuinely fun game, no multiplayer DLC, FPS-MOBA gameplay, and it's all in a boarderlands style, complete with the great humour and satisfying gunplay.

It says you'll be able to play with the devs but, if the devs are the only ones playing, THAT could be a little...awkward.

They forgot to mention the newly released DLC that nobody is going to buy.
