    No sorry Bobby. If I don't see 800% extra value or 800% discount, no deals with you.

    Quote from Joshbuckler >>

    It's entirely possible I'm missing something here as I played maybe 5 minutes of Diablo Immortal before uninstalling. 

    I played Diablo 3, bought both the expansions, wasn't initially impressed but felt it ended up being a pretty good game, albeit not as good as Path of Exile.

    I played through the main story with every class, and if Nightmare/Hell style New Game + things were in the game then I did a couple of those as well. I also did some rifts, moved my numbers up a bit, got some sets and then got bored and stopped. I never got near any leaderboards, those were for people who had invested way more time in the game than I had any intention of doing.

    1. I could do all that without paying in Immortal too, right? 

    2. I detest loot boxes that you pay for with real money, and how they're used to make the cost of keeping up with a game spiral out of control. Immortal's certainly look egregious. But what does the paywall actually stop me from doing in this game? 

    If in the base single player game there's a leaderboard and/or PVP system that's reserved for whales, can't you just treat it as though it doesn't have those features?

    3. Would the game actually match me up in PVP against people who had spent $10,000 in the game, or could I still do PVP and be matched against players with similar power levels and accept that I'm never going to feature on the leaderboards?

    Thanks. 

     

     1) Yes. You can play all game for free without paying. The issue is how the experience can be good because you have to deal with people that are spending in it. And in my opinion, since the entire end game consists in activities to get stronger, it becomes a useless game. Because as F2P, you can reach a very low level of power compared to who pays. And the more you pay, the stronger you get. But if you pay, the game is useless anyway because there will always be those who pay more than you.

    2) Diablo Immortal is built around hidden loot boxes. The loot boxes are the "legendary crests". It is a hidden system because you have to do a dungeon before open these legendary crests. According to someone, Blizzard did it in this way in order to avoid the laws regarding loot boxes. Anyway, people are not stupid and Netherlands and Belgium practically answered: "We know what you are doing, you will not avoid our laws, go to fuck off with your game" and they banned this game in these countries. 

    You need a crazy amount of legendary crests in order to have and to upgrade legendary gems to put in your weapons and armours. This will give a direct buff in percentage to your health and damages. It is estimated 110K for the full upgrade of your gems. 

    3) No. There is only  one leaderboard, so you will have to deal with spenders and whales. And 10k is not a lot. If you are unlucky, you can have in your server people that spend much more. You cannot change server :)

    The game is sadistic. It is built to make you spend and to make you happy, while you kill who does not spend. 

    (This is "only" 4K of in-game purchases. Yes, you can have "fun" at least you don't find someone that spend more than you). This is how PVP is balanced. 

    I also want to point out that PVP is not just BGs. The whole end game is PVP, because the goal is to become Immortal (and you become immortal with PVP).

    Anyway, now that we have more accurate estimates, it seems that it is required 500K and not 110K to max out a character. 

    https://gamerant.com/diablo-immortal-requires-500000-dollars-max-character/

    In conclusion. This game is only free on the facade. It is made to make you spend a lot of money in pointless legendary gems with loot boxes. End game is also very repetitive and considering the PVP prohibitive (at least you don't want to spend 110K or 500K on it) it can only be defined as useless junk.

    I mean, the pre-release stuff on Diablo 4 looks promising as hell, like Blizzard finally got the message on D3 (that being that Path of Exile was the real D3, not Blizzard's cartoon monstrosity with an auction house slapped on top).

    You've gotta hope that Diablo Immortal fails, just to discourage Acti/Bliz from pulling all sorts of pay2win shit with D4. Seriously, the aesthetics, style and physics look amazing. Hopefully they don't fuck it up through greed.

    Yep, it looks awesome!

     Just hook it to my veins!

     Path of Exile 2 looks awesome too, and at least this is not a company that loves to fuck his customers. So, I have better hopes (this trailer is one year older than Diablo).

    I agree that Diablo 4 looks awesome. But I don't know any more what we can expect from this company. We know for sure that it will have an in-game shop, and considering Blizz's approach on this topic it seems a thing very, very scary.

    For me, there is no way. Blizzard has forever lost my trust. There is no way that I can trust Diablo 4 or this company of scammers. 

    And by the way, Blizzard was hiring a product manager for Diablo 4. With the aim to manage the in-game store. So my expectation are below 0. It is clear that Blizzard wants a P2W Diablo. They did some declaration about it, but as we learned with Diablo Immortal, everything can be retracted by Blizzard with semantics.

    https://www.gamespot.com/articles/diablo-4-will-have-an-in-game-shop-according-to-job-listing/1100-6504481/

    Path of Exile is good. I have better hopes for Path of Exile 2 than Diablo 4. Because I know that this company is not made by scammers, like Blizzard.

    Blizzard promised that it was not possible to buy gear! (4 months before the release) And then they negate everything behind semantic. These guys are really scammers.

    Anyway, HS's cost is not nearly comparable with Diablo Immortal.

    @Shjuh we have a very different opinion about what is a good game. A good game for me is a game in which all players are equal and only skill matter. If you can buy gear in order to piss in the head of the other player is a crap game. It is crap because every activity that you can do become worthless. What's the point to do quests, dungeons bounties and farm gear when every noob can spend 100K and piss you in the head. The final scope of Diablo Immortal at the end is to become stronger, which is pointless because a whale would always be stronger than you. Skill is not required. It is a crap, stupid random casino P2W. 

    I wish this game all possible harm. Blizzard wanted to scam his customers with this crap and this thing need to be stopped now in order to not see this disease P2W in video game any more.

    Yes, it is nearly impossible to die because the game is very easy (it seems that they wanted to grab in it every people). 

    Anyway, up to level 60 you will realize that if you don't spend a lot of money you will not able to increase and to do anything competitive, but you will only be food for whales (Whales are people that spend a lot of money inside the games). That's the biggest issue with Diablo Immortal. It grabs in because it is free, and you don't need to spend until a certain level and after, you need to spend a lot of money. It is not a good game, it is rubbish/scam. And it should be illegal because it is an expensive casino. Do you want an idea about how expensive is? Check this simulator. https://dimi777.github.io/diablo-rift-simulator/

    Try to see how much money you need for a 5 stars/5 stars gem. Well, you need 6 (all different). And whales have them. Because there are crazy people. Then you have also to upgrade these gems, and need duplicates. I don't want to check how many duplicates, but it is an astonishing sum.

    Anyway all this mess with Diablo Immortal send me to Path of Exile. We will have also the mobile version (with no pay-to-win) https://www.pathofexile.com/mobile

    and Path of Exile 2 (https://www.pathofexile.com/poe2)

    Blizzard now will risk in having Diablo Immortal countered by Path of Exile mobile and Diablo 4 by Path of Exile 2. 

    By the way, Path of Exile is better than Diablo 3.

    If you don't understand, it is quite simple. People only want the game in balance.

    posted a message on Diamond Cards- Come chat with a Dev! [Confirmed]
    Quote from SacredWar_Z_V_O >>

    Diamond cards should generate diamond things, right now I don't see that, it feels half-assed (sorry) Benedictus should give diamond hero power, Jandice should spawn diamond minions and  Sivara should give diamond spells

     

    its alot of work, but again, you value these cards @ 30 bucks each, then they should be worth the rarity and price tag, right now they dont feel like it

     "It is a lot of work", it seems a funny statement to me. I mean, It is an animation in a frame already made, always the same. 

    There is no way that €25 is a reasonable price. You can buy a full game Triple A game with this price of 2 diamond cards. That's a lot of work, when you have to develop a full game. 

    Blizz should works on how to stop its bleeding instead of thinking about how to scam people.

    Yes exactly. "Maybe don't release broken cards in the first place!?" Theoretically yes, but they want to sell aggressively, so they need broken stuffs. And this is why the scam arises. Because people bought different stuffs. And especially when there are new expansions, when people have to decide whether to pre-order or not based on what they see and after 2 weeks of release, they nerf everything. This thing drives me crazy. It is an unregulated scam.
