Genshin Impact Players Are Upset With 1 Year Anniversary Gifts
Genshin Impact is on the cusp of its 1st anniversary event, with the festivities taking place following the Version 2.1 update taking place at the beginning of this September. While this would normally be cause for celebration, some of Genshin Impact’s player base isn’t particularly thrilled with developer miHoYo’s 1st anniversary rewards, with many suggesting that what they’re getting simply isn’t enough.
Genshin Impact players have begun to flock to social media to express their outrage regarding the game’s 1st anniversary gifts. Said gifts are 10 Intertwined Fates – the currency used to ‘wish’ for limited-time characters – and “abundant resources” which can be obtained by participating in the daily login event. While the 10 Intertwined Fates are certainly nice, it typically takes 90 of them to obtain a guaranteed max rarity character, and even then there’s a 50/50 chance of not obtaining the character that’s featured on the limited-time banner. The picture below depicts some of what can be expected from the anniversary celebration, though it should be noted that the 2270 Primogems listed are tied to Version 2.1 events and not the actual anniversary.
Adding insult to injury is miHoYo’s reveal that Genesis Crystal top-up bonuses are being reset for each account, which is effectively encouraging players to spend more money on the game during a time when the developer should instead be focusing on giving gifts to players. There’s still time for miHoYo to turn things around at some point during Version 2.1, though in the meantime players are quickly losing faith in the studio.
Genshin Impact Version 2.1 is slated to release on September 1st, 2021. The game is available free to play for PC, PS4, PS5, and Android & iOS devices.
