    same... some of my friends are going mad for it, i just can't stand the graphic-style, it give me the feeling of a some advertised facebook scam game that i fail to adblock.

    Yeah. A non-gatcha version of Genshin Impact might have been interesting.

    It makes me think of the graphics style and art that all the V-tubers use. I can't unsee it!

    Developers must think I sit three feet away from my 60" TV based on how tiny they make the menu text.

    I mean, I get the attraction. I've seen some pretty god damned funny clips of Vtubers really nailing the "cute anime girl" schtick. But the animation style is really not that good. For a Vtuber they make up for the lack with raw personality. But a videogame? Eh....

    I don't know. It just feels to me like the diet soda of animation. It's so f***ing generic that it really takes away from the game or movie or whatever. Combine that with the Gatcha nonsense and it just outweighs the good merits of Genshin Impact.

    Oh well. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm glad people like it. It's clearly a super-high-quality gatcha game. I hope they don't screw it up and over-monetize it, and ruin it for the people that are playing now.

    I haven't gotten the itch to open the game up since Sunday. I just know that if I keep grinding for a week I'll get a chance to get a single wish that will end up being a 3 star weapon I'll just dust for parts. I know that I'm missing out on daily rewards, but honestly I'd rather wait for them to fix the game/monetization system than waste my time fumbling for scraps.

    Getting MC up is easy as you get free crystals to lvl it up as a reward, but rest of team not so much. You are locked to a boss battle or upgrade books and you gota plan and wait to use up resin smart.

    Endgame realy is just farming elite mobs all over the map and hoping you get good drops, as dungeons cost a lot. Heck farming dungeon relics is last thing you should do once you get every character to lvl 70 with 70 weapon.
    Endgame in every game is about min-maxing except for the games are cosmetic oriented (more games should go that route. Power grinds are dated).

    Also some people need to learn to look at how much time they have put into a game, see what they have done in it and say "I'm good with what I have done and it's time to move on" instead trashing a game for only have 50 hours of content and them beating it...as if that's a bad thing.

    When is the next patch? Has it been announced? I already have Barbara and Xianling but getting a free constellation thing would be nice. I am at AR18 so I can get to 20 pretty easily but I would hate to miss it because I just didn't feel like playing for a couple of days.

    I am pretty sure the Barbara and Xianling freebies are both only for a limited time.

    update 1.1 will be released november 11th, which is when barbara will no longer be the 'free' hero, instead they are changing some of the character rotations and giving away fischl, there's also a free hero being given to players AR 42+ but it's unclear at this point if that hero is free only to players who 'play tested' the game or if it's going to be for all players on the 'live game', the leaked patch notes were very unclear on that plus there's some chance of stuff being lost in translation, aside from all of that the patch notes stated that they are planning a full revamp of the whole gatcha system in the game to coincide with the addition of all the new heroes coming with 1.1, and that players who spent resources on rolls prior to 1.1 going live will be given a small rebate with the new tokens to buy heroes making it 'easier' to get the hero you want while keeping the gacha system for easy whale milking.

    retired march 2013 RIP - returned january 2016, purely because paladins finally get Ashbringer!

    Right on. And yeah, they really need to make the gatcha system more consumer friendly. Right now it is a total rip-off. Around $2.50 per roll with a guaranteed 4-star after 10 rolls? Meaning $25 for a 4 star with a crazy low chance at a 5-star? So not worth it. Feel so sorry for all the people who sunk hundreds of bucks into the game already.

    If you're talking about the updated pity system, that was fake. https://www.reddit.com/r/Genshin_Imp...eaks_are_fake/

    If I get my Adventure Rank up to 26 but don't take the Ascension Quest...what happens? Do I just stop earning Adventure Rank XP or will it carry over when I finally do the Ascension Quest?

    you get stuck at 25 if you don't do the quest, but it's just a quick dungeon like the previous ones you did in the story

    Well I've pulled 4 Xiangling's, so I'm not worried about not getting to 25 before the patch.
