"The Immoral Design of Diablo Immortal" - a very interesting, well made deep dive into predatory monetisation in Videogames.

Incredibly naive way to look at it. They already know people like you will shun the game, they already accounted for that, you're not gaming the system or throwing a wrench into their plan, you're just a number at the bottom of a sheet, nothing more.
They also already know their won't be enough people like you to even make a dent in their numbers, and that the incurred loss from you guys not buying their game is negligeable compared to how much more they make from predatory tactics.

If anything, they love you guys, because your severe misunderstanding of human psychology and lack of overall empathy means you'll never help push what they actually fear: regulations and legislations.
