Diablo: “Players are spending more than that!”, the community laughs at a ridiculous fine received by Blizzard!
Since its release, Diablo Immortal has displayed one of the most predatory monetizations. The community has not failed to point this out many times, and this time it’s justice that attacks Blizzard. The PEGI imposed a fine on the company, but this one is simply ridiculous…
What’s next after this ad
Mocked when it first appeared at Blizzcon during a conference we all remember, then singled out for its ultra-predatory monetization, Diablo Immortal is an example of what not to do when it comes to mobile gaming. But the dark soap opera does not stop there for the hack n slash paperback, released in June 2022, since it is sentenced by European justice to pay a fine ! The PEGI has indeed criticized the game for not having indicated the existence of content of the type lootboxes when presenting their case.
Except that the amount of the fine must have literally made the company’s pundits burst out laughing, because it is only 5000 euros. For a video game colossus like Blizzard, it’s ministrations.
“Some players probably spent more than that on Diablo Immortal”
The amount of the fine had the community hallucinating. Both amused and disgusted by this news, fans who criticize Diablo Immortal for its monetization could not help but point out that some had to spend more than 5000 euros in this mobile game which has the particularity of constantly ogling on our wallets.
Indeed, Diablo Immortal is a title that is cut out for whales, these big consumers of premium content on mobile games. To acquire the best equipment on Diablo Immortal, it is almost obligatory to go to the checkout if you do not want to come up against the famous glass ceiling imposed on the players. free to play. Even worse ; some calculations showed at the time that even whales having sunk thousands of euros in the game had not obtained the weapons of their dreams.
A bad ad before the release of Diablo 4
This fine still undermines the reputation of the Diablo license a handful of days before the long-awaited release of Diablo IV, June 2, 2023. Bad publicity which Blizzard would have done well, especially since the PEGI has, in addition to the fine, lectured the company which will have to update the information and its marketing tools intended for Diablo Immortal players.
