Asmongold, a Twitch streamer, criticized a Diablo Immortal player who said he had spent $100,000 and was therefore “too powerful” to play it completely.
Despite the fantastic ARPG Diablo Immortal’s June 2022 release date, Blizzard has already made a sizable sum of money from the MMO. The controversial game developer has faced criticism for adding microtransactions to Diablo Immortal, particularly because some players weren’t satisfied with the rewards they received for their purchase. However, that hasn’t stopped some players from investing money in Diablo Immortal already. Asmongold, a well-known Twitch streamer, found it absurd that one player had spent an astounding $100,000 in microtransactions.
Asmongold was viewing the video “Should I refund $100,000 on Diablo Immortal” by jtisallbusiness on YouTube. As an Immortal, the creator said he was having difficulty rising to the position of Clan Leader. He was consequently unable to enter some battlegrounds.
Asmongold jokingly said, “So, he’s spent so much money and he’s on so much of a higher level than everybody else, nobody can even queue into him.”
Jtisallbusiness also mentioned the up to 72-hour wait time to enter a battleground. Asmongold didn’t feel sorry for him, though. Asmongold remarked, “So, this guy, he’s been trying to play the game. Look he’s talking about refunding the game. He’s going extinct!”
His supporters were also indifferent, noting the Blizzard scandal. JT clarified that although he had brought up the problem with Blizzard, there wasn’t much the developer could do at the time. To his chagrin, he therefore saw no choice but to return his persona and receive his $100k.
