Genshin Impact is under review after being blown up following the community’s growing frustration with the game’s treatment.
It’s been a few months since the gacha game, with growing criticism from fans regarding updates and events. 5-star Yoimiya character released It was poorly received, with complaints of broken abilities and a feeling that minimal thought has been put into the overall gameplay design. Then similar problems appeared With the next five star game character, hubby.
The anniversary live stream in August didn’t make things much better. Aside from the English broadcast being delayed by more than an hour, the rewards revealed for the anniversary event were criticized for being too stingy. Gacha games fans will know that anniversaries are often pretty bargains – developers tend to throw a lot of reward at you, usually premium currency that can take a good month or two.
Players aren’t happy with the rewards being thrown out though, and along with miHoYo’s continued silence surrounding the recent issues, it has amplified tensions. It seems that things have finally come to a head, as angry fans are heading to the game’s mobile store pages in droves to leave one star ratings. This didn’t affect the game’s rating on the Apple Store, which is currently 4.5. to me Google Play Store Despite this, it has seen the rating drop below three stars. according to GamesRadarIt was worse just a few hours ago, but things seem to have leveled out somewhat.
This may be due to the fact that, according to 1 reddit post1 star ratings are reported to Google as reviews from the bot and removed. Google already has Policy “Spam or False Comments” are not allowed, which expressly prohibits manipulation of app ratings. While it doesn’t quite match the Steam review bomb discovery, it’s possible that something similar could happen to prevent the rating from dropping drastically.

However, that didn’t stop the anger, as players also took to Genshin’s official Discord servers, Spam its channels with a personal expression This has become synonymous with the disappointment of society. Both servers are currently running in a very long slow mode for half an hour, higher than the initially reported 10 minutes.
There has been no response from miHoYo yet. With the time already silent, it’s uncertain if we’ll see an acknowledgment from the developer anytime soon. It’s a shame Genshin is a surprisingly great experience, but bad practices will undoubtedly continue to put players off.
