Eternal Orbs are quite important for progression in Diablo Immortal. They are used to purchase Eternal Legendary Crests and cosmetics, among other things, and especially those boxes can make your character a lot stronger. Only downside: they are fucking expensive. For 7200 Eternal Orbs you pay 100 euros (provided you don’t live in a country where the game has been banned, like us!).

So it’s no surprise that some players decided to buy the Orbs elsewhere – via third-party websites – even though they knew it would go against the game’s terms of service. Sure enough, Blizzard has now dealt with these players by taking their Orbs. All Orbs bought “illegally”, regardless of whether the player had already used them to open Crests, for example.

The result: some players have now built up an in-game Orb debt, and are firmly in the negative. If they want to continue playing their character, they will first have to make up for that negative balance (read: buy Orbs until they run out again). 0 stand).

PCGamesN spoke to one of the players who seems to have been “worst” hit: Shia. Shia showed a screenshot showing an Orb balance of -2,491,025. That equates to about 35,800 euros. “It’s gotten more expensive,” Shia says of the Orbs. “In the beginning it was 20 euros [per 7200 Orbs]but it has risen to 50 euros. [..] I think I’m going to stop.”

Diablo Immortal cannot be played in the Netherlands and Belgium due to laws and regulations regarding loot boxes. “This is related to the current operating conditions for games in those countries,” Blizzard said earlier.
