Diablo Immortal has quickly become one of the most popular games in the world, and only lately, an event of note took place while the esports sensation Michael “Shroud” was participating in a game of the game with his pals.
Players of this recently released massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) will, in essence, have the opportunity to find out what the difference is between Diablo II and Diablo III. In addition to this, players have the ability to choose from a vast cast of characters and engage in epic battles against the game’s various bosses.
However, and this is where things get very interesting, while Shroud is playing the game, he can be seen talking about his favorite portion of the game, which is not what the majority of spectators might think it is.
It is a common misconception that Shroud does not enjoy spending money on games; nonetheless, this is one of the aspects of Diablo Immortal that he enjoys the most.
Shroud shares his favorite part of Diablo Immortal
According to the professional player of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO), the fact that there is no limit on the amount of money that can be spent to advance levels is his favorite feature of the recently launched game.
“One thing I do like about this is, there is no cap. I can just keep spending money. It really made be bad in Lost Ark when I got a cap and I just couldn’t spend money anymore. That pissed me off, like it’s my money le me spend how much of it I want please.”
It should come as no surprise that a big free-to-play game in this current period, such as Diablo Immortal, offers a few micro translations of the game’s text. However, the most important question that needs to be answered right now is whether or whether these seemingly insignificant changes add up to make this game a pay-to-win one.
When it comes down to it, a player who invests real money into this game will have a much easier time leveling up their character and becoming more powerful in a shorter amount of time when compared to a player who does not intend to invest a lot of money in the game. The game’s name makes it very evident that developers intended to avoid the embarrassing label of being a pay-to-win product.
Fans respond to Shroud’s views on how money should be spent
As was to be expected, Shroud’s peculiar perspective on Diablo Immortal sparked a firestorm of discussion on Reddit. Within a couple of hours, the comment area was completely taken up by the ultimate dispute regarding whether or not the title is a pay-to-win title.
One user on Reddit went on to explain why the majority of players appear to have anti-pay-to-win mechanics in their games.
