Diablo Immortal ran into some problems in the beginning, with common errors and complaints about pay-to-win issues.
According to GamesRadar+, with complaints about pay-to-win mechanics and existing problems, the launch of Diablo Immortal doesn’t seem so smooth.
Diablo Immortal is off to a not-so-optimistic start
‘s gameplay Diablo Immortal is receiving rave reviews, most of the gaming community is satisfied with the journey through the plot. The game feels like Diablo 3 and reproduced beautifully on mobile devices. You will probably encounter higher level obstacles, but it won’t be too much of a problem as you can overcome it by leveling up with bonuses and quests with Challenges and Elder Rifts. Although it is time consuming, it is not necessary to spend money on the game.
However, the ending of Diablo Immortal is sparking discussions about the new action role-playing game’s monetization. In Diablo games, players often want to craft late-level weapons once the main story is complete. Equipping legendary gems to armor and upgrading them all is one of the best ways to do that, as they come with special effects and bonuses.
So, how to get those gems? Legendary gems increase in strength from 1 to 5 stars and can be earned through Elder Rifts opened with Rare Crest and Legendary Crest loot boxes. With Rare Crest, players can get free every day, but the number of stars will not be high.
Legendary gems with a lot of stars will come from Legendary Crests. One can be bought a month from Hilts Trader in Westmarch, if you want to buy more you will have to spend real money. Of course, this doesn’t take into account the “hit” rate for legendary 5 star gems and the amount of time it takes to power up.
According to Bellular News on YouTube, a fully upgraded character will cost about 110,000 USD. Issues related to the trading system, items, and pay-to-win mechanics in the game have caused a backlash among fans.
Diablo Immortal also encountered some errors during the transaction. And a big problem is that it can’t be played on some Samsung phones with Exynos chipsets.
Although Blizzard has made a slight impact on their game monetization, along with work being done on the Exynos chip compatibility bug, it remains to be seen if any changes are forthcoming to support the end game process or not.
