Moving them to "Lil" is still moving them away from "Midget" even if they use them the same way (ex. Midget Shotgunner becomes Lil' Shotgunner). It's Randy and team trying to preemptively move away from controversy.
even though the change was in the game gearbox didn't develop

They're not called 'little person' anywhere in the game. They're given names like "Lil' Moonie" or "Lil Scav". They also didn't change the names of the midget enemies in the rereleases which seems like a priority.
I thought the point was to distinguish that the scavs have a different way of refferring to themselves, and thus cannot be called "the same enemies from bl2"

I know this might surprise people in this thread, but Randy Pitchford loves to suck cock for money and this time he's deep throating the Chinese.

Borderlands 3 is probably going to be an Epic Games store exclusive. Enjoy having the Chinamen scrape your PC for data while Randy Pitchford buries BL3 in microtransactions and shit DLC.

The Homeworld IP was up for auction when the previous holder's assets were being sold off during bankruptcy proceedings, and Randy got into a bidding war with the original team of Homeworld devs who were trying to reclaim the IP. By virtue of having more cash on hand than the original Homeworld devs, Randy managed to put in the winning bid and cucked the Homeworld devs into a publishing deal with Gearbox.
So he's like Michael Jackson buying the rights to the Beatles catalog when Paul McCartney was trying to buy his own songs back, including questionable sexual tendencies?

Yeah it was a really big "fuck you" to the original Homeworld devs who were just about to embark on the equivalent of a big comeback tour at that time with the consecutive development and release of Homeworld Remastered and Homeworld: DoK. That they succeeded in getting good critical reception, fan/consumer response, and sales figures was in spite of Randy, not because of him. In exchange for taking a big percentage out of their sales, all Randy did for the Homeworld team was half-assed advertising and hosting an unnavigable QA/tech support subforum for the Homeworld titles on the Gearbox site.

I actually liked the Borderlands games but I think Borderlands 3 is about three or four years too late. I don’t think anyone gives a fuck about the series in 2019.

I still follow Borderlands on Facebook because I can't be bothered to unfollow them. Every now and again they still post codes for loot chests and skins, and there are people who show up in the comments saying shit like "yeah, man, I still make new characters all the time and give these guns to my friends to help them out blah blah blah", and it just blows my fucking mind that people are still playing it.

Really, as easy as it is to deride Borderlands 2's gameplay, there's a reason even seven years on people are playing it- it's a fairly inoffensive looter shooter that goes cheap on Steam a lot so it's easy to get four people together to shoot the shit and have fun, and the gameplay loop works to enable you to achieve that.
