In the event that Diablo 4 streamer Quin69 told viewers that the journey up to $20.000 had begun in one of his streams this week, no one could have foreseen that he'd make it to the final destination. Given the fact of him Diablo 4 Gold having already spent over NZ$10.000 on Diablo 4 without getting a single 5/5-Star Legendary Gem appeared to be improbable enough. However the luck of the streamer hasn't got any better since that time.
Eight days and hundreds of Rifts after that, Quin69 has now reached another unimaginable milestone, with his most recent stream pushing his total expenditure up to a whopping NZ$20.000. Unfortunately for Quin69. due in part to the way Diablo 4. with its controversial Pity System, functions, Quin69 isn't any closer than acquiring one of the rare 5/5-Star Legendary Gems than when he first started spending.
In just a few short weeks, Quin69 has spent a astonishing NZ$20.915.82 but not received the one 5/5-Star Legendary Gem. Given that the optimum design would require six of these gems. Quin69 is still a long way to go in order to achieve perfection. In actual fact, it's possible that YouTube channel Bellular News' assertions that it could cost up to $110.000 to fully equip on Diablo 4 may actually have been an overestimation on their part.
Of course, saying that Quin69 hasn't gained anything from the experience would be somewhat misleading. For one thing, Quin69 has gained thousands of followers on his various social networks since his rise to fame, which will no doubt help fund his expenses. He also has a pretty OP configuration inside Diablo 4. as evidenced by his frequent excursions into the game's PvP.
NZ$20.000 might not be enough to guarantee a 5/5-Star Legendary Gem, however it can be enough to purchase some good gear. In the end, Quin69 is often able to record double-digit kill streaks Diablo 4's PvP, though because of the amount that he's spent on the game's pay-to win nature and the fact that it's a pay-to-win game, this might be be expected. His fans are eager for him to mention this, with comments like "well compensated" and "nice is paying" flooding the chat whenever Quin69 boasts of his accomplishments.
Some have even gone so deep as to refer to Quin69 as a part of the problem, saying this reckless behavior might encourage impressionable viewers to gamble with money that they cannot afford to lose while providing justifications to those responsible for the game's aggressive monetization. Other players have expressed concern about Quin69's mental well-being, in part due to the millions of dollars that he has recently thrown away with Diablo 4 but also to the anger Quin69 often exhibits when things don't go his way in the game.
