Diablo Immortal also, in the simplest terms, takes directly from Diablo 4 Gold the “feeding” method that a lot of Japanese, Korean, and Chinese mobile games have used for over a decade. “Feeding” involves raising the stats, attributes, or rarity of a particular item by getting a duplicate of a drop. These duplicates are then supplied to an item of similar rarity to boost the overall stats of said item. Typically, five copies are required to make the most of an item or character.
My first introduction to “feeding” was through Fate/Grand Order, which was initially published in Japan in July of 2015 and earned a total of 4 billion dollars globally in the year 2019. In order to make a character the best it could absolutely be I needed copies of each.
When a particular banner rolled around I spent up to 300 euros in order to get the five-star character I’d been lusting over all my life. However, I never obtained the identical copies I needed to be able to appreciate the full potential this character has.
Since the rate for the most popular 5-star characters currently hovering around 1percent, it’s an unsurprising that I did not manage to get a duplicate of the character during my playing time (which I have since uninstalled). In July 2021, Fate/Grand Order was the seventh most successful mobile game of all time, putting it next to Konami’s Puzzle and Dragons, which is, as I mentioned, is also a gacha game.
In the GDC 2021 discussion, Genshin Impact developer Hoyoverse (previously Mihoyo) outright admitted that the method used to create characters was based on generating the highest possible capital from its audience. In the case of Raiden Shogun as well as buy Diablo IV Gold Kokomi character reruns from March 2022 alone netted the company over $33 million in revenue.
