    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.
    No...ratings do not matter when a game has moved past the initial phase, which Genshin is far past already. This applies for any product really. The only thing ratings are for, are like you said, for promotion, and to get the product known to people. Everyone and their mother at least has heard of Genshin at this point. Even all my non-gamer friends have heard of it.

    TBF Chongyun got a hangout event, even Yanfei got to show up in the teapot questline I think it was? At least it seems she's gonna be relevant in 2.2.

    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).
    Kaeya and Razor are my main dps since launch, and I got memed hard by my friends for using him lol. I just love to rub the 36* abyss in with Kaeya all over it.

    I agree the best move would be to actually have spenders to stop spending, but saying f2p don't matter is wrong. Most likely they make for the bulk of the playerbase. Even if they don't spend a cent, I don't think whales would be incentivized to spend on a dead game. Then again, it's my first gacha game so I'm still getting used to the customs of the genre.


    Btw I don't think it has been posted yet, but apparently there's gonna be a 2.2 livestream in the Tokyo Game Show for Genshin Impact, 10/3 9pm GMT +9. JP VAs from Aether, Xinyan and Thoma will be on it.

    a "cursory" glance will reveal that the rating is now at 1.9 and nothing is being done. Google doesnt give a fuck about some rando chinese shitters.
    YOu should ask Greasy "this one's on me" Timmy how his bullshit worked out for him.

    The game now no longer gets promoted. You have to specifically search for it, or go look at the dubious "biggest revenue" category, where it is in the top 10. Hell, its so fucking funny, because of the rating, the first result for genshin is now a paid strategy guide.

    Mihoyo getting what they fucking deserve.

    They give streamers like kektone 15K gemmies for free, and then spit on the rest of paying players.

    Fortunately, bootlickers like you dont get to decide what other people feel the game should be rated as.

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.
    No. Your most powerful tool is word of mouth and preventing them from gaining new customers. Which is what the reviews are for ;^)

    You dont know shit about how gacha ecosystems work. Stop talking for a while. Preferrably forever/. Whales whale so they can flex on the F2P, or plankton. When the plankton, their sustenance, is gone, the whale will swim to other waters to begin the cycle anew.

    First gacha? Yeah, it shows.

    Reviewbombing has been done for multiple other games, and worked every time.

    As I said above, the free stuff isn't the issue here. It's the blatant abuse of your community to do free work for you in exchange for basically peanuts. The art 'contest' is at best insulting, at worst straight up exploitative. It's also a matter if respect for your playerbase that made the game successful. You can call it entitled, but at least getting an in-game mail that just says "Hey, thanks for supporting us for 1 year, here's to many more years of fun" would have been just an absolute basic.

    I'm still not quite sure why everyone is so upset about the anniversary. 10 free wishes is way more generous than stingy Mihoyo usually is. Plus they put together that fun web thing that showed us our stats for the year. Coming from wow all I remember is them giving us that thing that increases our experience gains slightly, increasing by 1% each year, so I'm not sure where these high expectations are coming from.

    And I'm really not sure how there's enough people upset about this to tank the ratings in the app stores. Following the 80, 20, 5, rule everyone upset should still be a drop in the bucket compared to the masses.

    You maybe new? or joined us after latern rites, most of people still having afterglow from launch+rites, since at start they were not this stingy aka "EnJoy your 140 or 108 primogems whatever".

    1) launch of game give you 10 pink wishes, 20 blues and 1600+primos. (i call it 40 wishes, but hell you not gonna get 5* like that without rerolls)

    2) Latern rite was 4* character, couple events on 2000+primogems, +10 wishes as player base reached 3mil, 10 wishes log-in reward.(almost 40)

    3) anniversary, here your 40 primogems go and PR us at facebook for fowls , and yes log-in reward of festival .... count it as Anni, bitch.


    At times of latern rite , i was shoked, like damn so many primos maybe game grow so much that free "bell" is nothing and next events gonna be like that? which was met with utter sadness since turnouts log-in event exist not for each week of year but twice a year.... and you need to go their website for ordinary log-in rewards like 3 eggs or 2 fowls.

    You did abyss floor 9 stars? nah man here your 150 primos.(make it 160 ffs)

    Playing Granblue Fantasy from 2016-2020 really spoiled me when it comes to anniversary, new years and summer rewards. You were able to spark (this translates to a hard pity in Genshin) within 6 months. If you rolled during the one of the three yearly 100 free rolls on top of 30-50 free rolls on that banner you would get almost 50% off free spark with 6% 5* rates . CRAZY AF now that I am looking back at it.

    To be fair GBF 1st anniversary rewards were boring as well. They did not begin to give out the 100 free rolls until after the third anniversary I think. Then again we would have to compare the amount of revenue they each made within that first year.

    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.
    Terrible if true.

    I'm not sure I see the relevance between f2p quitting and it being a dead game. There isn't going to be all of the f2p players quitting all at once, I've quite honestly have never seen that ever happen. There would be a bunch quitting, then a bunch of new ones come in and the cycle repeats. The game does have quite a lot of appeal to newer players after all. If the big spenders quit, well...it's just over period

    All I gotta say is, if you have an issue with this, QUIT. Otherwise, it won't matter. Mihoyo is literally pulling this because they can.

    Man this whole shitshow is hilarious.

    Genshin community didn't have the best reputation to begin with and being bunch of whiny babies and harassing VAs for not getting thousand free pulls for anniversary really makes them look like a well adjusted bunch.

    10 pulls for Mihoyo standards is pretty good, no Yunru?

    I mean...this is the company that asked you to register to netflix for 10 primos before, or something crazy like that

    Humm...i actually dont remember if there is shields weaker to things...
    I know some shields are stronger against specific elements.

    That's the assumption.
    If it can tank it, she can tank everything in the game, even though only with lvl3 shields.

    I'd still prefer Zhongli and Noelle over her, because Noelles shield is strictly better, (obviously, Zhongli's as well) but she is Pyro, so she has uses aside from shielding, and it's easier to get the pyro resonance going compared to the geo resonance

    One thing to take in consideration is the shield will be 35% weaker when you change characters.
    Xinyan is using Bolide 2 piece...so the shield is ONLY 35% stronger for her...
    Unless the char i swap to also have Bolide.

    I think thats how this works. Still strong
    Thanks for replying, is good to see you Kray
