Popular Twitch Streamer Turns Pokemon Unite into a Pay To Win Game
Nintendo leaped faith and entered new genres to make the hit.PokemonFranchise into a MOBA with the most recent release, pokemon Unite. The game received a warm reception from its fans and has been awarded an impressive launch day viewership on Twitch.
One Twitch streamer, Moistcr1tikal (or Penguinz0 to his YouTube audience), recently began playing the game. He found a way to make a payment that would allow him to climb the leaderboards. Moistcr1tikal, playing Pokemon Unite’s item upgrades, maxed all three of his items to get a huge stat boost during matches using real money.
These boosts cut down on the amount of time he would have to spend grinding to reach this point. All he had to do was drop a lot of money into Pokemon Unite. These boosts allowed him to effectively take on the entire team in the matches that followed.
At first, Moistcr1tikal spent a lot of his money buying Item Enhancers to bring the Muscle Band, the Float Stone, and Leftovers to their maximum level or incredibly close. This gave him an extra 35 attacks, 7.5 attack speeds, 96 movement speeds, and 208 more health. In the next few matches, he found that it did make a noticeable improvement but did not give him the unfair advantage he was looking for. Even then, he was still able to dominate his enemies with two maxed-out passive item boosts.
Moistcr1tikal’s next idea was to switch out the Leftovers and Float Stone with a maxed-out Shell Bell and Scope Lens. These next items massively boosted his character’s offensive capabilities, giving him huge bonuses with Sp. Atk Cooldown, Critical-Hit rate, and Critical-Hit damage. This gave Moistcr1tikal the advantage over his enemies that he was looking for. While playing as Machamp, he spawned camp the entire opposing team and got a five KO streak before dying.
In total, Moistcr1tikal spent about $100 on upgrades and was getting close to 20 kills per game. Many of his fans were saying that the other players would report him or that he would get banned, but Moistcr1tikal defended himself and said he was not breaking any rules. He claimed that he never hacked at any point and only played the game how Nintendo allowed for it to be played. Hopefully, Nintendo notices this problem and does something to balance out the items to be fair for everyone.
