However, a lot of players are very unhappy with the game’s Gacha system. The developers are focused on making an unprecedented profit from this Gacha system, which is surely not in favor of free-to-play players.

miHoYo recently released the long-awaited Geo elemental character, Zhongli. According to some players, Zhongli is awesome if used properly, which can be done by completing his constellation to level 6. However, not all players can afford to level up the character, especially for the free-to-play players.

This trend is visible through the latest character in Genshin Impact, Zhongli.

 

Why Zhongli C6 is an absolute beast in Genshin Impact

Players can level up their character from C0 to C6 by unlocking the same character multiple times. Each time they receive the same character, their constellation increases by one level.

Zhongli may not be good enough at the base level; however, his power overshadows many other powerful characters at maximum level. His C1 provides an extra pillar while his C2 gives an extra shield with his ultimate. His C6 helps him to heal 40% of damage he takes in combat.

miHoYo offers a very low rate of getting a five star which is 0.67%. As numbers never lie, the probability of getting a five star is rather low and not all players can get their hands on them. Zhongli C6 is gaining spotlight among other characters; however, with this low percentage, it would be very difficult for free players to level up him to C6 especially.

Free players get a very limited number of resources to open up the packs for the characters. Now the question that arises is- is miHoYo planning to make the upcoming characters constellation busted?

miHoYo may make this a new trend to gain a lot of profit. Hence, it is safe to assume that the developers may think to make all upcoming characters as average and boost their constellation to another level.
