So, most of the games that have battlepasses, are F2P.
Not only do you have to pay for D4, you are setting the price at $69.99 (much higher than most digital only content), and then attempting to charge us a battlepass fee on top of that.
I was actually getting ready to purchase the game because the beta happens on my birthday weekend… and I suppose I just want whoever was in charge of this idiotic idea to know they are responsible for losing a customer.
Not only is $70 pretty steep for a digital purchase.
You are putting it on a game which the last version of which was a ‘successful flop’ because while it rode on the back of a great franchise, it failed in every way. Multiple times. Diablo 3 was trash. nearly useless uniques. No real treasure finding. Just endless grinding grifts. Over and over.
Blizzard has become such a greedy company, and with decisions like this being made, I have no choice but to assume that the rest of the choices made for this game were equally as bad.
You should have learned from the greed in Diablo Immortal, but instead you just wanted to double down on greed at the expensive of a great franchise.
LOW IQ move.
Likely the perception of your company is going to continue to dwindle greatly due to repeated horrible ‘business’ decisions.
