Stay Away Diablo Immortals (It's a Gatcha Game)

Activision Blizzard has recently release a mobile game called Diablo Immortal and I knew from the moment it was announced that it would be a gatcha game that shouldn't even be touched with a 10 feet pole.
What is a gatcha game? Simply put, gatcha games offers a free experience up to a certain point and then you're required to pay to progress further. According to some news article, this starts at around level 35 in Diablo Immortal at which point progress is severely hindered unless you shell out money.

These sorts of games frustrates me as it's no longer designed for players as much as it is for payers. Sure, I've shelled out a few bucks for Rocket League passes (optional), Hot Wheels Unleashed DLCs (optional) but it's nowhere near as aggressive as it is with Diablo Immortal.

Gaming is a hobby that is starting to look more like a job that you have to pay for. Want to make progress in Diablo Immortals? Pay up!
What happened to you Blizzard? You used to be soooo good! Oh wait, Activision happened to you and slowly, but surely, you became less about your players and more about filling those people sitting around a table in suits.
