It’s no surprise at this point that gamers are frustrated with the pay-to-win structure of Diablo Immortal, but steamer Quintin “Quin69” Crawford may be the angriest of them all.

Gamers have been spending thousands on the new mobile game since it was released on June 2 to prove how insane the microtransactions are. One streamer decided to take it one step further.

Quin69 has spent thousands since the game came out in an attempt to get a five-star gem. These are obtained in a loot box-like system, helping to build upgraded weapons and armor in order to complete the game.

In a recent stream, Quin69 finally got a five-star gem and then deleted the game in defiance.

Diablo Immortal streamer deletes game after spending thousands

Twitch streamer Quin69 spent over $25,000 to finally get his hands on a five-star gem.

After getting the gem, Quin69 immediately uninstalled the game in frustration. He installed the game again, however, to screenshot the gem and then destroy it by using it on a pointless one-star item.

“It was an honor to whale with you,” Quin69 said to his clan before deleting the game again. He then added “F- you, Blizzard.”

Quin69 stated that Diablo Immortal “didn’t deserve” to be on his computer. This frustration has been shared by World of Warcraft streamer Asmongold, who has been complaining about the game since it was announced.

Recently, Asmongold even got in touch with a US Senator to discuss his concerns with “predatory” games full of microtransactions like Diablo Immortal. Purchasing the crests in hopes of getting a five-star gem can be a bit like gambling, something that concerns many in the gaming community.
