Ultimately it is up to Raxx, but I personally feel that his dedication would be better off on another franchise, because Blizzard and their exploitations do not deserve people like Raxx as Raxx is far too good for them.

@Velshin I feel you. I am looking forward to Last Epoch more than I am PoE2, I just don't like PoE all that much. But, I can't say I am not at least a little excited for D4. All in all, I still play D3 from time to time. But Last Epoch has my interest, it's a great game but I feel it needs Multiplayer to truly make it shine. I am an ARPG fan at heart, I have played many and I will try them all out. D: Immortal is the one exception, but everyone knows why, lol! Edit: changed wording

Such a true statement. I played a ton of D3 casually for years. Eventually console got seasons and there was all this grind to do for special cosmetics and free sets that were sometimes brand new, so going from someone who played casually and enjoyed just playing through the game to suddenly needing to know how to level quickly in order to get those rewards was huge. I never played diablo as the only game I would play except for when it first came out, and then when ROS first came out. So those guides for casual players to allow them to do a serious player's min/max grind and gearing for seasons were HUGE for me.

This is quite sad, but the Maxroll team reminds me of the old Blizzard company, which used to make every single game with a big heart, truly a made-by-gamers-for-gamers company. The way Maxroll play-tested DI in Alpha, doing up all the raw data and painstakingly compiling them for the playerbase to peruse was very admirable, like when Blizzard developed games such as Diablo II and Warcraft III which were so beloved around the world. Nowadays, as long as a mobile game is "free", you are either getting bombarded by ads or microtransactions. There is always invisible paywalls in "free" games so you are encouraged to spend real money to power up your game. If you cannot control spending impulses, it's better to just avoid mobile games altogether and stick to traditional paid PC/console games. It's also good to identify certain greedy companies and avoid their games.

When I was in university studying for production in game development I told my mentor that I wanted to work at Blizzard. At the time WoW was my all time favorite game so BlizArd was an abvious choice for me. My mentor was one of the original people at Activision and by extension also knew loads of leadership at Blizzard. I remember after I told him that I would like to go to Blizzard he jokingly said he knew and already contacted someone there to open up an internship position. He straight up rotated his screen and showed his DMs with an executive producer at Blizzard. A month or two pass and I didn't hear anything about that internship. When I ask him about it he takes me to a private area and tells me he won't be putting me in Blizzard for any money into he world. The day he told me was only a couple months before the massive layoffs at Blizzard. To this day I believe he saved me from a horrible career and I will be forever grateful. He also told me about sexual harassment and gross overspending in the company even before it all game to light.

The maxroll people have close relationships with some D2 and D3 devs and other Blizzard employees and even play with them from time to time.

@alex hill Maybe, there’s no way to tell with any amount of certainty, especially with blizz. Although I think generally even games that aren’t subject to power creep tend to outdate information quite quickly. Even if the information is still somewhat relevant for a few months I think traffic would be severely slowed down if they didn’t update it, at least by around 80%, just quoting from the fact that the largest burst of new players and interest in a game will be in the first 3 months or so unless it has some massive revival like FFXIV or Shadowlands or whatever it may be, that usually only happens if there’s a massive update at which point most people will still be directed to new, updated information because that’s what they’re searching, that’s what sparked their interest in the game. Not saying they wouldn’t still get some* traffic or revenue if they kept it up but I think in the grand scheme it would be minuscule, and eventually the cost of hosting the branch would be greater than the revenue being produced

I think the bait and switch alpha is very damning for Blizzard's relationship with content creators if they pursue this model for their other games. It's one thing to change your game between beta/alpha and beta/release but it's another to fundamentally change the core gameplay in order to give content creators and testers a false impression of the game.

@paztacos This. 100%. Money tastes delicious, and neither Bobby nor ActiBliz are ever going to stop. Why would they? Why should they? They've created a skinner box simulation on steroids with a thin veneer of gameplay, nostalgia memberberries, and fomo. All they have to do now is sit back and vaccum up free money from minnows, fish, dolphins, whales, krakens, levithans, gambling addicts and kids with access to their parents credit cards. This may not even be ActiBliz and Bobby's final form yet. But it's a clear sign of what's to come with likely D4, etc. When you perfect the recipe you don't just discard it and start from scratch the next time you make it. At most they'll slightly scale back the hyper aggressive monetization strategy, to appear "reasonable" and having "listened to player input", while having drug the overton window violently towards their side. And gamers will say "see, they listened" it's not (as) pay to win anymore! Wow! 900% value! See! ActiBlizz cares!

I love Diablo and was excited to play this. I don't know why my expectations were set that blizzard wouldn't try and make this game like the other mobile games but they were set and I was sorely disappointed that it was impossible to get ahead as a free player. Put a ton of time in and still lost bg's because the other players put in probably 100's of dollars. Blizzard disappoints but it is to be expected because of how successful mobile games are at raking in money with their overly monetized models. They are a corporation and hence does anything they can to make the most money they can.

Therein lies the problem. It's simply a given that mobile games are p2w. If that's the case, why stop at 2, 7, even 10 on the p2w scale. Why not shoot for the moon, the stars, the next galaxy even. If it's a given that whales exist, and p2w mobile games are profitable, why stop at sone profit, why limit your ambitions? The worst case scenario is that you have to roll some of it back to appear "reasonable". But at point it doesn't matter, because you've drug the overton window kicking and screaming over to your side, and stuck an explosive collar around it's neck. Sure it can walk a couple steps back from you, but it can't even get close to where it was before. And gamers will laud ActiBlizz for "listening". Look guys, they heard us!

based on my observation (avid mobile player here), mobile game making, more of MMO's, has followed the trend of changing its mechanics based on where it launches. The new mobile game Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds, during Korean Server and Beta test, didn't have any NFT in it, so everything for progress was supposed to be farmed, but when it scheduled for SEA and other region releases, they used those NFTs to be of significant importance to progress story-wise and gear-wise (also affects PVE and PVP heavily). In Ragnarok X: Next Generation, earlier server Taiwan, had different mechanics than that of SEA Region (different cooldowns, different pricing of packages.) It seems like there's this period of a "Maximizing Income from Whales" period, in which they rake in enormous amounts of cash, and after a time, they switch it to more of F2P-friendly stuff, where P2W stuff become so cheap that it's almost like a 'catch-up you dummy f2ps' price In my opinion, this is what happens when businessmen run games instead of gamers. Mobile game making is now just like making money out of NFT/Crypto, where you get in big and fast, and get out faster... sad to say

eyo maxroll - if you're listening - i'm really looking forward to your POE content. i tried POE, looked great, but the systems were just too overwhelming and i couldn't "trust" all the guides available online because i didn't want to spend days of my time building a character and not being satisfied with it. but this video has shown me that the content you produce IS worth my time. so, get that POE content coming :D i'll be glad to reinstall POE and give it a go with one of your builds

What Blizzard could do is provide a url endpoint to all the changes to spells, items, etc and then when you are writing your guides every time you mention an item or a spell that gets saved. That way the system knows where you mentioned that spell or item or whatever. Then if Blizzard changes a spell, it will show up on that URL endpoint, and you can flag all the locations you mentioned it on your website for review. That's a start at least. Alternatively you could look at the change log and build that endpoint data yourself.

Zack, I know you eat and drink like me but nothing has been wrong (from what I remember). The same has been wrong with me. I am healthy and exercise. I went from perfectly healthy to having a fissure with no known causation. This happened at the end of febuary. I just now was able to get surgery for it. It feels like I've taken a step backwards for healing. This is gonna sound weird but just make sure you're regular man. This has destroyed the spirit, energy, and the life in my personality. Constant, never-ending, intense pain will wear on you. You get angry, frustrated and sad, then you enter such a state where you're no longer angry. You no longer care. You no longer have a job because fuck you life. You go 4 1/2 months without it healing and no job. You fnally get approved for surgery. You find out a week before it will cost you $7.2k. You consider suicide.

I think the reason why mobile games are frequently pay to win probably has something to do with the fact that for whatever reason people really don’t want to pay any amount of money to download a game, even if its only a dollar. So mobile games either have to get money from ads or in game purchases, and you could argue that the in game purchases could just be cosmetics, but that would require consistent work to make new cosmetics. It’s much easier to build gates, than it is to build interesting things behind the gates.

Not all mobile games feel tremendously p2w. I've played quite a few of them and there are certain games say like Genshin impact where it's PVE. You can play at your own discretion.

@Orkanen there is definitely bad publicity. If you are only known for a bad thing, then that's bad publicity... Anyway if emerald drakes had nothing to do with anything then who'd you bring it up? It has nothing to do with anything. Also I agreed that Asmond was being slightly hypocritical by telling others not to pre-order despite pre-ordering himself. Saying that Asmond doesn't advocate that WoW is a bad game the same way as he advocates that Diablo immortal is, otherwise he wouldn't still be having fun and playing it. There is some negativity there but there is also a lot of positivity. Currently for WoW and the next expansion I would say there is both good and bad publicity, depending on who you ask there is more good/bad. In the case of diablo immortal its almost unanimously bad publicity and severely outweighs any good with the game. More flaws than benefits The point is that there is good publicity and bad publicity. WoW has both, currently Immortal has basically one (bad)

It’s the world we live in. If there’s opportunity to make money people will take it. The Devs probably cared about the game, but the business men have a job that is “make money” and if there’s opportunity to make tons of money off of idiots even if it hurts peoples feelings they don’t care, because they made the money and did their job. They don’t care if it ruins the game or pisses off the developers. That’s why small indie game companies are the future. Small companies have the business men and developers both working together, instead of separate.
