Twitch streamer Quin69 deleted its Diablo Immortal account in protest after spending more than NZ $ 25,000. He bought the legendary 5-star gem in MMORPG, an item that is considered one of the main ways of developing his character. While important for progress in the game, these gems can only be obtained by buying surprise boxes for real money, the famous Lotboxes. After purchasing the item, Streamer still “destroyed” his Gem in the game before deleting his profile.
In addition to Quin69, more users are complaining about the practice in Blizzard’s new title, which includes gemstones and microtransactions. Note that Diablo Immortal is available for free for Android devices, iPhone (iOS) and PCs where it is in beta.

Prior to that, Quinn spent more than $ 10,000 on broadcasting without even getting the legendary 5-star gem. At this time he expressed his dissatisfaction with words such as: “Who needs at least 10,000? What should I buy? A car?” Nevertheless, he continued to experiment with the rarity of gemstones in surprise boxes for the past two weeks until he finally found it for the first time in one of the latest streams.

Shortly after receiving the gem, Streamer did not decide what to do with the artefact until he and his chat users had chosen to destroy it. For this he used a very rare 5-star gem, as if it were a low-level item to enhance a common 1-star gem. After tem was destroyed, steamer decided to delete your character and delete the game. At one point, Quin69 commented: “No one should play this game in its current state. It is toxic and exists only to make people money.”
Diablo Immortal reviews were quite harsh and the game became the lowest rated PC title in the world. Metacrit, 0.2 points out of 10 in customer reviews.

The next game in the series, Diablo 4, has already been confirmed, but a release date has not been set yet.
