DIABLO IMMORAL

Cue the Wilhelm Scream ... on repeat ...

AT ALL COSTS ... MWM must avoid abusive monetization as exemplified by Diablo Immoral.
I'm sure you will, but this is still a cautionary tale to learn from and actively work to avoid.

Yeah, we've passed that video

Yeah, we've passed that video around internally already, and talked about it a bit. A lot of us are (used to be) Blizzard fans going back to the 90's. It's sad how far they've fallen.

Great example of what not to do.

As an aside, we did talk to publishers in the past. It was stuff like this that made us choose to go the volunteer route. Most paying publishers wanted heavy monetization like this. One literally wanted to just buy the rights and outsource to a mobile dev company.

Blizzard is controlled by people who are NOT gamers, anymore.
The company is run by greedy parasitic Wealth Extractors™ now.

It's not about the games for them.
It's about robbing people blind at every opportunity.

An otherwise good game ruined by virulent predatory monetization.
The fact that this kind of thing is getting normalized by "whales" with more dollars than sense is horrifying.
