Recently, Blizzard launched the much-awaited Diablo Immortal on Android and iOS as a free-to-play game. The game is set between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III as you play it as one of the six different classes. However, taking account of all the Microtransactions in Diablo Immortal the question that whether the game is actually a pay-to-win is popping into the heads of the Diablo fandom. Check out this article to know what is causing the backlash that Diablo Immortal is receiving.
All Microtransactions in Diablo Immortal
Once you download the game and start playing, all goes well. You are battling the undead, monsters, bosses, and other creatures. It is once you reach a certain level that the microtransactions start to pop up.
The most obvious microtransaction is when users start paying for the Legendary Crests. Getting the Legendary Crests is difficult in the game, free users grinding hard get a handful of these crests. Fewer crests means that they get to participate in fewer Elder Rifts and thus it takes longer to get Legendary Gems.
Other microtransactions involve the purchase of Battle Pass and Cosmetics of characters. Although Cosmetics has no major influence, the Empowered Battle Pass offers many more items compared to the free one.
Is Diablo Pay to Win?
The microtransactions in the game have all but put grinding players at a disadvantage. If you go to the PvP forum, good players playing with clans face defeat to that one paid player.
In earlier Diablo games, you had to pay once while buying and then grind for the rest of the game. Diablo Immortal is quite the opposite, you download the game for free, and then money talks.
This is causing a lot of backlash in the gaming community for Diablo Immortal. Some players call the game a money-hungry scam with $100,000 being capped as the estimated amount needed to max out a character.
Whether Diablo Immortal is a free-to-play or pay-to-win can be answered from all this and whether Blizzard were right in their business approach or not has been answered by the gaming community.
