Honestly this wouldn't have gotten so messy if they had just released it to the asian market. Doesn't make these mobile games like this any better of course, but the backlash definitely wouldn't have been so bad.
It really is a great game, the attention to quality, and the little things like the boat ride, small puzzles.
Its an awesome game, nice cross progress, nice to have it on the phone for the go or play on the PC. Still having a blast after round about 50hours without spending any cents.
And I uninstalled it just as fast. I loved the gameplay. It felt like D3 but even better, then you notice these minor purchases of 5-16$, I didn't mind I have played games where I purchased items for much more, then I casual watch a twitch stream which brought me over the edge. Shroud stream where he spent thousands, and still no real progress. I was amazed at how much he spent just to not gain any real player power. So I tried to still have hope for the game. I was number 1 necro on the leader boards 2 piece set and everything, just to get smoked by a dude with not even half the gear I have and wasn't even paragon 2 yet, he was able to hit challenge floor 46 while I'm struggling on 34 without the gems. As we all know Blizzard went full-on P2W with this game and it's sad. They could have hit it out of the park with this one, But greed and wanting to get into the mobile market put a bad taste in people's mouths again.
Why couldn't they just make a good game and leave the:unapologetically immoral, greedy, predatory, thieving, exploiting,....monetization out of it?Why couldn't they do that?As it stands right now the game is foundationally designed to frustrate you into spending money. It's only good for as long as it takes to get you to swipe and that is malicious.
game base is ok i really enjoy playing game after a long time but they must add few things for free to play gamers like more legendary crest for farming legendary sockets
Didn't over 30M preregister? Doesn't seem a big number? Also I'm missing the part just PC related? Maybe I'm blind lol
In case it isn't obvious that is not a good thing. This game is one of the most predatory and heavily monitized P.O.S' on the market and will only influence Activision to act even worse.
