Spoke to a female colleague during lunch. She said she pre registered for Diablo immortal already.

She's aware its going be pay to win concept.

She said she spent about usd$3k on a prev mobile game. But she felt it's peanuts compared to her friend, who spent $30k on it.

With potential customers like this, why would Blizzard want to give a **** to us, e so call die hard fans?
goodbye gaming. all good things must come to an end..

no way im going to spend usd 3k or 30k on a mobile game.

not in this timeline, reality, plane of existence.

Online multiplayer mobile gaming is p2w. At least all the famous one that is.

one of the rare journalist article that actually gets its:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkai...al-fiasco/amp/

#justsharing
Let’s conjure a metaphor. Imagine going to a restaurant that’s been hyping this amazing steak dinner. Everyone is excited for this dinner but when they get there, the waiter tells them sorry we don’t have steak but it’s still going to be a great dinner, just wait and see. Then they bring out steamed veggies.

The customers are upset. They were expecting steak, and if not steak they were expecting a meal still and yet all they’re given is steamed veggies. “Is this a joke?” one asks.

Now imagine that these customers are told they’re exhibiting signs of “toxic masculinity” and that they’re just “entitled” crybabies who need to shut up and go home. The restaurant has every right to make steamed veggies and if they’re just patient, down the road they’ll also have steak. Headlines make much ado over these entitled restaurant goers who can’t just shut up and eat their broccoli.

I’m sorry but if this sounds crazy to you, welcome to the gaming industry where we’re routinely given broccoli and told to chew, promises of steak be damned.

You know what? It's fanboyism rearing it's ugly head again. if a developer gives you the middle finger then move on. there's so much alternatives nowadays and plenty of other developers that are worthy of your hard earn cash. end of the day its just business and businesses go where the money is.

WC3 itself ages well, so not bothering with a reforged.

Yes it is, the ones who are pissed off are the core fans which make up a minority, the casual players are the majority and they don't care as long as the game is fun. All those people you see pressing their phones while waiting in public transport, those are Blizzard's target now.
