Players displeased with Wish Upon a Lantern in Genshin Impact

Wish Upon a Lantern had started back on February 19. Players had to release lanterns by completing tasks like visit Genshin YouTube channel or Genshin Twitter page. After completing the daily task, they were able to release up to three lanterns daily, and each lantern awarded them with a random amount of Mora and other small presents like Hero’s Wit and Mystic Enhancement Ore.

In order to get their hands on the prize, players had to release all five different lanterns. However, the chance of releasing lanterns was random. Therefore, many players could not collect all five different lanterns even though they completed all daily tasks regularly.

Furthermore, what annoyed most of the players was the unequal distribution of the grand prize. Many players complained and got angry after realizing the reward for the event was not fair at all. They later discovered that some users received more primogems than them, even after putting the same amount of hard work.

Maximum players received 108 primogems through this web event. However, many players received a far greater amount. Surprisingly, they received either 188 primogems or 288 primogems.

Naturally, fans were unhappy with miHoYo as getting random amount of primogems after doing the same amount of hard work was quite heartbreaking. The best solution could have been to distribute an equal amount of primogems to all players worldwide. If that would have been the case, such a scenario would have never surfaced for the Chinese developer.
