    Well Steam kinda tried to do that.....and it backfired so bad they had to remake the review system with spike and stuff.

    The only amusing thing here is your stupidity.

    No, google is not going to go out of their way to shill for some game.
    That only happens with 1 star reviews with next to no text due to an automated anti bot spam process.

    Yes. Ratings matter. Everywhere.

    Any app under 3 stars does not get promoted in the play store.

    There is a reason hotels and restaurants will bend over backwards and let you fuck them in the ass for a good rating review.

    Sure, but a cursory glance would reveal that the Play Store has stepped in to stop review bombing multiple times with little to no pushback

    Robinhood, TikTok, etc... They'll just say it's inappropriate spam, and wipe most reviews mentioning the anniversary *shrug*

    Uh... because they would be right? Of course all those online stores/metacritics stop review bombing, and they are right to do so. In Genshin's case, it absolutely doesn't deserve a 1.9 score just because people didn't get free stuff they felt entitled to. It's pure toxicity.

    Reviews are supposed to be reflective of what people who own the thing are. Just because you think they're being unreasonable doesn't mean you (or companies) deserve to censor them. Maybe we need to put less focus on reviews as a society. Maybe companies SHOULD be beholden to their customers and be allowed to experience the true power of the consumer in such a fashion like this. Maybe people genuinely dislike the game this much in it's current guise.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with weaponizing the tools you have at your disposal as the consumer IMO, especially since you have so few ways to actually effect change normally.

    The way I see it, the fans are free to give the game 5* ratings in contrast. The game doesn't deserve that either.
    I don't partake in such wars, so I don't know if you actually have to own/have played the game for a certain time. I doubt it since it's in the playstore.

    But I think only systems that somehow limit the numbers of people who can give a review are trustworthy.
    Being able to review a game like this after playing it less than 3h for example isn't fair.

    After 3h, I can only find out if I like the idea of the game... not the game itself. I shouldn't be able to rate Counter Strike with 1* and say "well, it's an FPS, I don't like FPS".
    That's not helpful for the consumer either, it actually hurts them.

    If I do it over 6 months, I won't have to do a single xp leyline (for 70-90), which is kind of what I was trying to say. I can't somehow avoid doing the gemstone grind for the ascension since they are purely tied to resin only and why to me, that's the main blocker.

    The mora is definitely a big blocker yea.

    Also lol, yea I don't like Kaeya :P To give you an idea of how much I hate Kaeya, I used Qiqi as my superconduct enabler for my razor over kaeya LOL (back in the early game).

    As a customer, your most powerful tool is taking your money elsewhere. If you hate the game in its current state, you can stop spending or quit until they fix it, and yeah, you can also leave a review detailing what you didn't like. But you definitely wouldn't fairly rate Genshin 1*. Dropping a 1* "EHMAGERD MUH ANNIVERSARY REWARDS" review is, individually, nothing more than a baby fit, and I'd be willing to bet 90% of these reviews are coming from F2Ps. I guess F2Ps don't have other ways to exert pressure, but in their collective case, review bombing is pretty much terrorism, and that's not something that should be defended or encouraged.

    Don't bother. The guy thinks bitching about the game will get results somehow. Also, I don't mean to be a dick but...f2ps crying about stuff would just make Mihoyo laugh. F2p has 0 positive impact on their game and largely only negative impact (because they use up their operating costs without any profit). The only thing that will make them blink at all is when whales leave the game and / or a competitor comes along (and I mean a good one, not another shitty gacha game).

    Apparently, the chinese VA for Kokomi is getting harassed because her game-character is so bad and obviously due to the anniversary drama as well.
    Since it's the chinese VA..... well, I already said what I think about the community, especially the chinese part of it.
    What a joke.

    Lol this...People don't seem to realize that Mihoyo knows how successful they've been with Genshin and are just milking as much as they can. The backlash with this anniversary may force them to change their roadmap but it won't affect them at all.
