Genshin Impact developers really value community feedback

According to a report by PCGamer, developers have been paying close attention to the feedback. The clash between the creators and fanbase has certainly taken a foul turn, which has put the game in a difficult situation. Now, the developers have come forward to reassure the community that they are reviewing everything and more rewards and gifts will turn up.

“We’ve been paying close attention to various feedback regarding Genshin Impact’s first anniversary. We’ve already come up with more celebrations including the upcoming Genshin Impact online concert and thank-you gifts to express our gratitude for players’ support all the way along. 

“The opinions and feedback from players and fans are really valuable to us, and we wish all fans will continue the adventure and collect more cherished memories in Teyvat.”

Is this enough to save the game from impending doom?

The answer is a simple no, as the greedy nature of the game will continue to stomp it to the ground. Gacha titles are centered around generating revenue by making efficient use of FOMO (Fear of missing out). This strategy works excellently and the billion-dollar revenue serves as evidence of its success.

However, this nature of the beast does not value the community as a whole. The paying customers will continue to reap benefits from the system, leaving the free-to-play audience in the dust. It seems like the horrible first-anniversary event and the slow pace at which meaningful content updates arrive in the game have finally caught up with the studio.
