Why do people hate players that spend money so much?

The shit stirrer in me refuses to die. This morning I came across a reddit post, specifically on the Diablo Immortal subreddit that was titled: “Why do people hate players that spend money so much?”. I come across a LOT of stupid shit on reddit that’s so stupid I can’t be bothered responding, but I like to pick my fights, and this was one I couldn’t resist.

The OP states that he’s spent $1,200 in the game, a lot less than other players, and when he let people know in a previous thread he copped a lot of hate. He then used the analogy of spending $1K a month on a gardener, or a yearly gym membership, and that these 2 unessential things aren’t considered stupid so why should spending the same amount in a game be seen as being stupid.

He wraps up with just wanting to know why people care so much with what he spends on the game.

I responded by saying that his opening line of suggesting that he had spent $1,200 in the game but “others had spent a lot more” instantly discredits him. Just because you suck a lot less than others that suck doesn’t mean you don’t suck.

Then I went to town on his analogies as IMHO both are generally seen as being way more constructive things in life than spending $1,200 on a mobile phone game. It’s arguable that tree trimming and mowing grass in your garden is an essential part of house ownership, and too right, as he suggested, no one should ever think that someone who’s wanting or trying to get fit is stupid.

On his last point about people caring so much. I suggested that he seems to be the one that cares so much as he’s the one who’s made this post in search for some sort of validation on spending $1,200 on a mobile phone game.

Ruthless! Right?

At this time his post had been up for a few hours and gotten a fair few upvotes and a LOT of responses. Despite my post being way down the page I unsurprisingly got a stupid reply. In his response he explains that his point is that it’s his money, and that he should be able to do whatever he wants with it, but “people like me” seem to care too much to understand.


I replied and suggested that ultimately most people would agree that it’s his money and that he can do whatever he chooses to do with it, but that doesn’t mean they’re not allowed to have an opinion on whether or not spending $1,200 on a mobile phone game is stupid, or not. And in regards to “caring”. Just because someone “hates” on him for spending $1,200 on a mobile phone game doesn’t mean they care?

I refreshed the page 30 minutes later and sadly the OP had deleted the entire thread. Damn it! I was really looking forward to getting the popcorn out. My inner troll is unsatisfied!

Monday Morning Rant


In this morning’s MMR I rant about an awesome shoot I had with Abby (AKA Cremolicious) last week, and the realisation that I’m going bald! I also discuss players leaving Diablo Immortal due to it’s predatory pay to win mechanics.

Pink Eye

I got pink eye. Woke up with my left eye completely shut and unable to open due to crust lol. I think my eye got too close to Abby’s bum hole during the shoot yesterday.

Community Building. I can’t help myself!

Attention Heazy all officers and all clan mates.

This has come about because I was grinding Hell 4 at hellspeed with Baggenz and Marths and it was something we were discussing.

Something that has always irked me in the games I’ve played is that at some point the cream rises to the top and stays at the top. IE: Some players get stronger and more powerful than others, then they band together, get “clicky” and push the harder content together and leave everyone else behind.

I’ve seen a bit of this in Diablo Immortal. People posting that they’re looking for players, but there’s prerequisites (for eg: must be 4K CR etc). I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that! But I think it would be awesome if, as a group, we try to help (carry even!) some of our lower stat members to the top because sometimes that bit of help goes a LONG way towards getting really into the game.

What we were discussing is that maybe there can be a day in the week where some of our higher ranked members could help our lower ranked members with clearing higher challenge rifts, world farming, dungeons and raids. And maybe we can start a new section on the discord to help organise groups and interest (if that fails I suppose we can always use in-game clan chat).

What do you guys think of the idea? What day in the week do you think would be best and most importantly, if there was to be a discord section, what would we name it (Hard Carry? Carry on luggage?!)?!

Who’s shooting who?!

It’s been a good week! I’m still very much not doing much but 100% not worried about it as I’m much happier being here not there.
