One week after spending over $15,000 to obtain a 5-star legendary gem, Quin announced his departure from Diablo Immortal, and now, others that include Wudijo, Asmongold, Bellular Gaming, and Maxroll are joining him. The Maxroll site cites a predatory pay-to-win model that does not offer a rewarding game experience. It considered approaching Blizzard but quit instead because it didn’t think the developer would make any meaningful changes to the game. Wudijo has provided content for the franchise for over a decade but is now wrapping things up.
“Right now we are still the reigning immortals on the dark wanderer server,” says Wudijo in a YouTube video, “but once that one is over I guess this is gonna be the time for me to pull the plug entirely.” Wudijo, who has played Blizzard titles including Diablo and Warcraft at a high level for over a decade, says he isn’t planning to release any more YouTube videos or guides for Immortal, and adds that many of his friends “have quit the game or are also demotivated” about playing it. He plans to finish off his clan’s current reign so as not to “let anyone down.”
This decision follows that of other big name Twitch streamers and YouTubers associated with Diablo and other Blizzard games including Quin69, Bellular Gaming, and Asmongold, to step away. Bellular says, “I wanted to review this game – I can’t. If I never have to talk about [Diablo Immortal] again, it will be a good thing.” Asmongold adds of the game, “It’s brought in hardly any new ideas, except for the ideas that come from the monetisation department.”
