miHoYo to take legal action against Genshin Impact leakers

The studio also urged fans to follow its guidelines and avoid spreading leaks. It is quite understandable how such things can come in the way of the development and production process.

These leaks serve as a massive obstacle as it gives away closely guarded secrets regarding the upcoming patch.

This tweet essentially seems like a final warning from the studio, as the leaks continue to give away secrets. The developers want to create an environment that welcomes new players. These leaks put its plans of releasing upcoming characters, events, and new features at risk. However, this news has not sat well with some fans on Twitter at all.

Twitter reacts to miHoYo’s stern warning against leaks

A certain portion of the community is unhappy with miHoYo’s stance against leakers. The fans deemed this as unfriendly, as it will prevent them to plan out their pulls for upcoming character banners. The absence of these leaks would certainly put the players at a disadvantage, as they won’t be able to devise crucial strategies for banner wishes. This is especially true of free-to-play players.

This fan complained about minimal dev & community interaction with Genshin Impact developers. He vented his frustration with a tweet in the thread and compared Genshin Impact with other gacha titles.

There are some fans who disagreed with the notion of the community. However, there were some who wholeheartedly agreed with the gaming studio.

One fan even provided an adequate answer, and he also stated a good example of things miHoYo has been doing right all along.
