The last time we checked in on streamerQuinand his attempts to earn his place in Diablo Immortal, he had spent $6600 and did not receive a five-star Legendary Gem. I am relieved to report that after more than double his investment, he finally has his loot.
As I said earlier in the month, here is how I wrote.
After a while, you''d get some of the games best gear, a 5-star Legendary Gem, right? Wrong! Because as Quin69 has clearly demonstrated here, the law of averages is inherently cruel and unpredictable, and why bookmakers have been taking advantage of it since the dawn of time, and why games like Diablo Immortal are built on predatory economic strategies designed to exploit peoples most dangerous and vulnerable psychological impulses.

Quin''s reckless spending and deepening fear after failing drops prompted many to wonder about his emotional stability. Unlike others, he explained his point in the ending. A fools errand is a system that allows players to clear out bank accounts while giving little back.
Quin69, for your service, is a pleasure to say goodbye to Diablo Immortal.
