The recent Season 1 update of Diablo 4 has left Asmongold deeply disappointed, reaching a breaking point with the game and eventually deciding to quit, possibly for good.
Divisive Reactions to Diablo 4 Season 1 Update
Blizzard’s Season 1 update for Diablo 4 has sparked controversy among players. While some welcomed the introduction of Malignant Hearts, others encountered issues such as the contentious Battle Pass problems and challenges with the Nightmare Dungeon.
Asmongold, known for being a vocal supporter of improvements in Diablo 4, had previously warned that neglecting to address the game’s issues would result in a significant player base decline, a prediction that now seems to have impacted him directly.
Asmongold’s Frustrations Lead to Quitting the Game
A telling moment occurred during one of Asmongold’s live streams on his popular Asmongold clips YouTube channel.
In an attempt to defeat a boss in Diablo 4, Asmongold was repeatedly one-shotted, leaving him bewildered and exasperated.
The first instance saw Asmongold far from the enemy but still suddenly killed.
His response was a simple “Ok.” The second attempt followed a similar fate, leading him to exclaim, “What the f**k” while chuckling.
However, it was the third attempt that truly tested Asmongold’s patience, resulting in another instant one-hit KO. Feeling defeated, he uttered, “Oh f**k, I don’t think I can do it.”
After one more unfortunate death, he vented to his viewers, expressing, “The mechanics are dogst, it’s cp.”
When a viewer called him out for quitting, Asmongold defended himself by questioning the logic of continuing to play a game that simply frustrated and disappointed him.
Another viewer chimed in, highlighting the failure of the resistance system and how players were left unsatisfied with the fixes being postponed to later seasons.
Asmongold could only respond with a simple “yep” before declaring that he was officially done with the game.
The Impact of Asmongold’s Decision
As one of the most prominent streamers in the world, Asmongold’s departure from Diablo 4 could have negative consequences for the game. Losing such a popular and influential figure may cause some players to question their own commitment to the title.
