Wanna know the real reason for the mandatory shared world Blizzard wants to push down everyone’s throat in Diablo 4?
Just search the internet for “Activision matchmaking patent”.
( Blizzard doesn’t allow (me) to post links here on the forum.
There are plenty of articles about this and they’re easy to find. )
This is all about microtransactions. It’s about showing of other peoples vanity items to nudge you towards buying stuff yourself. They want to show you other players to make you jealous. It’s about making more money, as always. Every other reason they give for this, in my opinion, is just a lame excuse.
For me, this won’t work. If they insist on a mandatory shared world in Diablo 4, I will not buy the game at all. Simple as that. I don’t want to play with strangers, I don’t even wanna see strangers in a game. Never ever.
