Genshin Impact Anonymous 19845
How do you feel about Mihoyo, Genshin Impact and their playerbase?
I know nothing of Genshin Impact but the playerbase makes me want to stay away from it forever.
Big CCP money and an utterly rabid and insane fanbase… games are aight though
I'm never playing because the shitty ads I got when it came out. The userbase is like a festering toxic mold, so I'm not touching the game or a user with a ten foot pole.
It charmed me enough to keep playing. There's a lot of talented artists/writers in the fandom, but it also really makes me wish I had a "block everybody under 30" button. I'm glad Mihoyo seems to respect fujobucks.
>>19845>Complaining about playerbase
Why are you even chatting in multiplayer or reading twitter spergs?
I just play because it's free and has decent exploration for killing time. And maybe for potential future husbandos, though none of the characters now are really my type.
I'll admit the monetization model relies on you finding the characters cute but I think it's way less sexualized than the average anime-style game. And weirdly enough, the only characters that flirt with the protagonist are guys>>19857
I recommended the game to a friend and I'm glad she likes it but her life now revolves entirely around Genshin fujo ships and moronic jokes written by 13-year olds on Twitter so it's sadly getting impossible to avoid.
I also love the exploration in Genshin, the lack of endgame has been a mood killer for me but Inazuma isn't that far off.
how many 5 stars do you have? which elements? their constellations?
Kazuha, Jean (C1)
Mona (C1), Tartaglia (C1)
Raiden Shogun, Keqing
I just know that the company is gonna release an otomege
QiQi, Mona, C1 Zhongli, Kazuha, and I just rolled Diluc trying to go for Albedo.
I'm not a whale so saving for Itto.>>22719
You been living under a rock? That game's been out for a while too, Tears of Themis.
>>22714>how many 5 stars do you have? which elements? their constellations?
Venti, Jean (finally!)>Geo
Tartaglia (C1), Mona (C1, sadly…)>Pyro
Hu Tao (got her by chance while I was pulling for Thoma, can't complain since she does lots of dmg and her design is nice).>Cryo
None, unless Aloy counts.>Electro
Who are you all saving for? I want Xiao, because I need another DPS to clear Abyss 12 floor, but I'm more excited about Ayato.>>22786
oh you have him guaranteed anon, I hope you manage to get him!
What makes Genshin Impace fun? I've barely heard that it has BotW gameplay with gacha elements. Is it just being a weeb-adjacent MMO that makes it fun?
I mean, ask yourself the question "what makes BotW fun" and you pretty much have your answer haha…
I think Genshin is fun because you can play as a lot of different characters, each with their own playstyle and meta. I don't think there's any other free to play game that gives so many gameplay options, aside from League of Legends and its copycats.
Also, the graphics are awesome and the scenery is beautiful.
Though if you're looking for a deep, meaningful plot, I don't think you'll get it here… There's some exceptions, but a lot of players agree the plot has been underwhelming so far.
>>23106>what makes BotW fun
I haven't played that either, it's just what I know about the game. Guess I should ask, what makes BotW fun then?
ah ok haha, well BotW is really fun if you like beautiful scenery and graphics, exploring open worlds, doing sidequests at your own pace instead of following a linear gameplay (?), yada yada yada.
I've never completed it, because the game is huge, but I remember feeling comfy while playing it because you could do whatever you wanted with no strings attached. Wanna kill that big powerful monster blocking your path? Go for it, but better upgrade your equipment first. Want to just laze around a cozy village and talk to people while completing their requests? Go ahead.
Ofc, Genshin Impact is way more simple (is free after all) and focuses more on you having the right characters in the team rather than you outsmarting the enemy to kill it (idk if I'm making sense). Regardless, even if you are F2P it's easy to get in-game currency thanks to events and exploration rewards (chests), so you'll eventually get enough currency to get the characters you want. You only need certain characters to complete Abyss, which is just a playground for whale players tbh. You can play the game and complete all of the quests even if you don't have top tier characters.
Not her but that sounds so damn boring to me. I guess that explains why I never really cared about BotW or Genshin Impact.>>22786>You been living under a rock?
Yeah, I've been trying to avoid this game completely on purpose as much as I can, since 1. it doesn't look like my kind of game, 2. I probably can't even run it, 3. it looks generic as fuck and 4. it's overwhelmingly popular.
Thanks for that bit of info though.
>>23114>ah ok haha, well BotW is really fun if you like beautiful scenery and graphics, exploring open worlds, doing sidequests at your own pace instead of following a linear gameplay (?), yada yada yada.
Was that all BotW was? Zelda but open world?

Sounds like very strange escapism wrapped up in a generic chink-anime aesthetic.
Not saying it's bad, I can just see zero of the appeal.

The fact you have to qualify it like this has me concerned too. I really loathe pay-2-win as a model, or as I suppose in this class pay-2-do-slightly-better.
Yes? As opposed to Jap-anime. Or Gook-anime.
>>23118>Sounds like very strange escapism wrapped up in a generic chink-anime aesthetic
Yeah, it sounds like a simulation kind of game with no clear ultimate goal. Although I guess it's also similar to MMORPGs, but without the MM part (and teaming up with other players and interacting with other teams is the main appeal of that genre).
I like life simulation games a lot, I would probably play the new AC if I could afford it, and I like more action-oriented games as long as they got a story and/or main objective. But Genshin Impact seems like a weird mix between those two that I don't really find interesting. The gacha shit doesn't help.
Wait, Genshin isn't even MMO? What the fuck? It's literally just open world gacha?
I tried looking that up, actually, because I wasn't sure myself, and found that people call it "single-player MMORPG" or similar things. Apparently it is possible to play co-op, but it's not an MMO?
I mean, I understand, I guess.
You guys don't know a lot about video games huh. Genres aren't that complicated.
Genres aren't complicated, why someone would like a particular one is.
Singleplayer MMO sounds like an oxymoron though.
>>23139>Genres aren't that complicated.
They're actually more complicated than they would appear, especially nowadays since everyone's trying to create new formulas and mixing elements from different genres.
Besides Aloy I only have Xiao and Itto, both C0. I'm not really a dedicated player and I took a 9 month break from playing at all. I really want to build up a husbando collection eventually, though. (Plus some of the girls with cute designs like Qiqi and Mona)
IDK who Mihoyo is.
JK I know it's the company but all I know is that they want your money and time for anime waifu.
The game itself looks like a discount BotW/PSO2 fusion. Graphics seem nice tho.
Playerbase makes me wish I was standing upside down with my head in a bucket of piranhas, to be honest. Lots of terrible memes and gushing/raging when they get/don't get their fave girl.
I'd rather spend my time and money on potato chips.
I really didn't want to play it at first, but started in April and became really invested (I have kind of an addictive personality). Then I started buying welkin and I dunno… Now I'm tired a bit. I feel like I'm getting baited into pulling chars I wouldn't want that much because of other people's excitement for them. So I'll probably go f2p in a few months. I have Eula, Kazuha, Raiden, Childe, Xiao (will have Zhong soon) + Diluc, Jean, Qiqi c2 (bruh). Weapon banner is theft, 5* consts not worth it, Abyss 12 is not even worth a single pull lol and meta always changes.
its pretty disgusting greedy chinese corporate pedobait but i like it for the art, gacha and albedo. too bad the gameplay is also boring as fuck, i can only make myself use my resin and do 4 commissions before logging out for a week. dont care for the playerbase either. gonna pull for zhongli when his banner comes out, i have about 30 pulls saved up atm. i want him for the sake of supporting my c2 albedo
it's an ok game. I only play because gacha addiction, but at AR 40 it became boring and repetitive. The storyline isn't that good, the graphics are like BotW but worse, I just go on sometimes to complete daily quests and get chr level-up materials
As a mobage/soshage enthusiast myself: blandest gacha cashgrab ever
I don't get the appeal of the characters
Design is shitttt
But I understand it is nice to have an open mmo-like world in a mobile game, so that's that
>>22786>Tears of Themis
wow that's literally mr love characters
I was under the impression that genshin is leaps and bounds ahead as far as gacha games go?
Oh man I thought I was the only one who noticed lmao. I know Love and Producer (Mr Love) was really big in China not long ago so they probably felt they just had to get a slice of that
Why I picked up Genshin
>every male main character is pretty in some way (up until oni dude, but I think they went back to pretty boys again with the new ice bishounen? I approve.)
>A l b e d o, my love
>pretty open world game that's essentially free
>Childe a qt
>the writing seemed very promising pre-Inazuma
Why I dropped Genshin
>toxic gamer waifufag moids in the fanbase
>didn't like Inazuma
>Signora is dead wtf
>game feels way too bland because they killed off one of the ONLY major antags that wasn't a nobody mob
>the foxboy sounds too mature
>they made a genderbend of him to appeal to moids
>bad gacha rates
>recycled characters from other Mihoyo games
>weird censored chat, impossible for RP
>better games exist
>the models can be ripped and used for better content
One of the Genshin Discords I was originally in got banned twice, nuked one time and then the remake also got nuked, because of moids sharing actual CP shit with each other. Not fanart but legitimately talking about trying to touch IRL children. I can't fault people who hate the fanbase, there are some really disgusting people in it. Some awful obnoxious trannies too.
I see why Mihoyo is trying to put the Mondstadt cast back into Inazuma and it's kind of hilariously pathetic. They don't belong there. Mihoyo struck gold with a unique cast and then they ruined it by becoming generic weebshit.
>>24437>because of moids sharing actual CP shit with each other
jesus christ, i shouldn't be surprised but then again… it really is so different to crystal.cafe CP rainds.>Not fanart but legitimately talking about trying to touch IRL children. I can't fault people who hate the fanbase, there are some really disgusting people in it. Some awful obnoxious trannies too.
Moids are a disease.
no different to crystal.cafe raids.
srry should have proofread my post lol
What villain did they kill off? I I haven't played in a while. Also who is the genderbend of the fox?
nta i assume they mean Signora which that anon mentioned in the above statement
Yae makes Gorou (who is a shiba inu, not a fox) crossdress in his character quest, haven't played it yet so don't know the details.
I hated Signora so it's cool shes dead. And seriously who hangs out in gaming reddits and discords, I just play the game, and for something free it's pretty good.
i play in chineese VA too, its more pleasant
>>19845Becomes the literal definition of a free rider
Nothing personal, haha. I'm in for the art 95% of the time as I absolutely love Ganyu!
But, I despise the coomer moids and wanna-be "woman" moids that are the reason Genshin is associated with human filth here in the West.
I'm also concerned about the CCP and the probable cadres they send to harass on them, as they do in every company.>>22719>I just know that the company is gonna release an otomege
That would've be amazing if it happened.
Yae doesn't make Gorous crossdress, did we play the same game?
Yay another Ganyu fan! Good taste anon. I love that artist too.
all the criticism of the fanbase makes me feel lucky that the only fanbase that exists in my head is my girlmutuals who share fanart of our fav genshin boys.
I miss Childe
i actively avoid large fan groups/discord servers for the sole reason of wanting to avoid coomers and "loli" weirdos
Most genshin fans are just kids honestly, especially in discord servers. It's much easier to accept cringiness of a fanbase when you realise the cringiness stems from children. I'm sure I was cringe at their age.
whenever i find genshin fans on social media, most of them are teenagers and ive have younger relatives who also play genshin.
i feel if you find coomer scrotoids, theyre in deeper parts of the internet that you must actively seek after. on the flip side you'll find tons of fujos/yumes.
the best fanbase experience is simply just having friends your age who play the game
The fanbase is okay; I find myself joining randos from time to time if I'm playing and bored enough, some people end up being chatty like me and it's fun. But I don't really pay attention to the fanbase outside the game, soo…
I personally play for the pretty environments and exploration. Rolling for characters adds an extra dimension to that gameplay loop. Enkanomiya is probably my personal favorite area so far. It has a very calming, ethereal vibe. Hoyoverse's art direction in general is very polished.
As for the story, I think the lore of the game is great, but the actual writing is pretty surface-level and I tend to skip a lot of dialogue because it's so needlessly long-winded and cliched. Mondstadt's repeated portrayal of alcohol and alcoholism is also kinda offensive to me as a German and makes me roll my eyes, but apparently only I think that.
I like the game overall & how you can mix up your characters. It's not designed to be played for many hours a day, so I find it funny when people make complaints about that.
Mihoyo themselves are stingy as fuck. The 'compensation' they are offering because of the delay of the next patch is exactly the same amount of primogems you would normally get if you did all the events and such that there would typically be. It's nothing 'extra'. Their anniversary 'gift' was such a joke. That you don't even get enough primogems for a SINGLE pull for getting 12 stars on Floor 12 of Spiral Abyss is ridiculous. The prices for the instant-gem packs are solely whalebait. It takes something like 100+ USD to guarantee the banner's 5-star. The boob jiggle physics are horrendously bad. You take one step and it's like a small localized earthquake occurred.
I hope they do something cool with Sumeru and whatever dendro characters they add. I'd love for the meta to change to something other than predominantly "lol vape teams". Looking forward to when they do a follow-up event for Unreconciled Stars. Interested to see what they do with the lore long-term.
Fanbase is overall insufferable, but that is pretty much every fanbase and especially when it has anything to do with anime. Nothing new for me. Like other s said, ignore the children and ignore the moids. I find it uproariously funny when players act like any of the men have any sort of an ass.
AYRT they're actually generous when it comes to Honkai, I will give them that. Genshin is clearly their cash cow and they are stingy towards the player base because of it.
What's going on with Ayaka's banner?
It will run until end of 2.6, as it currently says on the banner and explains in one of the in-game announcements about the banner.
No confirmation yet of when 2.7 will start.
due to the covid lockdown in Shanghai, 2.7 is delayed. they also were suppose to have an event that took place in the teapot (during teapot maintenance too) which I think is ongoing now?
what I don't get is Honkai (another hoyoverse game) has ver 5.7 out and other chinese mobile names like Arknights are functioning fine. only Genshin seems to be delayed due to covid lockdowns.
Maybe because different teams work on the games? I've also heard the Japanese voice actress for Lumine is unavailable to record new lines and that's causing issues. Not sure tho. I wouldn't be surprised if Genshin had a bigger team than Honkai and all their other games.
who do you guys main? is your main also your favorite chatacter? whats your favorite element?
i main eula & ayaka, but tartaglia is my fav character. my fav element is cryo
I'm a Ganyu main because I love bow gameplay and how strong she is but I don't even know if I have a favorite. I have a huge soft spot for Qiqi, Fischl, Bennett and Zhongli. Cryo is probably my favorite.
