GamingThread Diablo Immortal is targeted towards "die-hard Diablo fans from the PC space"
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory generalization, accumulated infractions
Posted this in Ubisoft R6 thread. Belongs here as well: Here's a few things to notice and talk about: 1. China has halted game approvals in China since Early 2018, and may not be available until Mid 2019. Even if they start approving Early 2019, it still takes atleast 3 months to approve them, and even those get straight scrutinity. 2. Games that make it to China are very strictly Pay2Win. Chinese gamers want to pay or cheat to win since it's a big part of their culture to be dominant and winning, so most, if not all games, in China are F2P with strict P2W elements (it's why they have their own version of Call of Duty Online). Expect this game to have serious microtransactions and coins and P2W abilities. 3. Even if they do make all these changes, there is no guarantee that the new approval team in charge (most of the old team got fired) will even approve this due to strict Chinese values (see # 5). 4. NetEase is distributing this game in China. Both Tencent and NetEase stocks have dipped heavily since January because of lack of new game approvals, and are getting desperate. 5. Chinese government may got really strict on games due to their heavy Socialist view, and how games are ruining the youth and pushing them to addiction and gambling (a big NO NO in China, arrest/imprisonment/re-education/camp worthy). Games may require to have a forced shutdown after 1 or 3 hours of play, games may require to use facial recognition to spy on users, games may require to disclose more info about you to the government, info that you don't want to share. ------------------------------------- So with all this in mind, this is not a good look for gaming in general if everyone focuses on China, when China don't want you. So... Who really is the audience for this?
