Deyha has the weirdest fucking kit in the world and I hate the direction mihoyo is going with this.
She is a vape dps probably right? Since she doesn't work with dendro burgeon. Yeah the problem is she has less vape hits than xiangling, needs to be on-field and can't be used with neither Xinqiu or Yelan. So she can't really be a proper vape dps. Oh and she is EM-focused but has HP ascension. Useless. Like what are they doing? Are they making her reliant on the hydro archon? That's months away.

How is Alhaitham to the nonnies who pulled for him?

They really need to change her burst and remove the HP scaling from constellations and put it in her base kit. If she's intended to replace a shielder she needs to be able to tank consistently, which means she needs buttloads of HP. Some kind of team healing passive for the damage she deals would be better than her taking a percentage of damage for the team too.
Apparently they are making changes to her because the testers are saying she's pathetically weak, but if they stick to her current playstyle I don't see her being strong enough at any one thing to be worth being a 5*. They need to either overhaul her to be more supportive (probably the better way to go) or make her burst work with the current Hydro supports, buff its numbers, and change her scaling to crit.
I can't believe they made her burst a qte and didn't think about the several enemies that will just reposition and dodge it, wasting the whole thing. At least Ei has the option to chase after enemies.

his original palette was so much more unique and striking. while there's elements of the new one I like, OG still wins for me by a lot and it hurts.
the worst part is they barely do skins, so I don't even have faith they'll resell his old look or a new outfit inspired by it…
they could've at least worked more red into the new design, his eyeliner doesn't match anything else any more.

I'm the exact opposite. I love his redesign and disliked his Fatui outfit.
The hat, veil, color scheme, and top half are ok. The shorts and belt armor were dorky as hell.
The new pleated shorts and cute bow look so much better. The new color scheme looks really nice against basically all scenery in-game. We have way too many blue characters but he's probably my favorite blue design so far.

No. 270848

>>270847
I actually like them both fine, and now that I've gotten used to the redesign I actually prefer it to the original one. It's much less 1.0 if you know what I mean, it has somewhat of a dull NPC colourscheme while the new one looks more decorative. The different shades of blue/purple go really well together.

No. 270860

>>270836
tl;dr her scaling is all over the place (split between attack, HP, and EM, same problem as Xinyan where no matter which stat you build something in her kit will suffer), her numbers suck (too low, her HP and attack both need to be buffed way up), her E doesn't deal enough damage and redirects damage to her and her burst just plain sucks, it's an uncontrollable punch flurry that an enemy can just dodge or walk away from since you can't aim it or stop to reposition her and it doesn't apply XQ blades so she can't vape with it. She's this weird tank/burst dps that sucks at both jobs, because if you need tankiness you should just use a shielder like Thoma or Yanfei and pyro has way better DPSes.
Hoyoverse needs to decide whether she's going to be a tank/support or a DPS and tune her accordingly, because right now her kit is all over the place in an even worse way than Xinyan's.

The designers have similar experience to a tumblr artists and first year designers I swear to god.
I'll explain to you how they think:
Blue being the dominant color (Scara, Yelan new fountaine characters etc.) means safety, trust, intelligence, order… etc. And enforcing it with Monotone colors/black and white enforces that meaning to the max.(Yelan, new fountaine blue character)
Analogous colors still have the same effect with some lenience (Scara)
His older design had traid/split complimentary that usually mean chaos and with the dim purple (mysterious, royal…etc.)making red(danger, violence، rage..etc) shine and that contributed to his character well

Since they seem to abide by the rules, why is this so bad? Kaeya has the same colors, why hasn't no one complained? It's because they're breaking the main rule that they need to have creativity to the point even people who know nothing about design and colors and noticing.
What they're doing now is doing the most brain dead shit that isn't allowed kek "what's the main thing in his/her personality? Huh trust-worthy? That's every character, all characters are trust-worthy. Blue." blue is also a color you feel safe putting your money into I.e. Bank so spend money on them, people flgoid spending money on anything blue especially if they're under the effect of FOMO lol
How can this improve on this? Simple, use other colors to allude to the main color for more variety ie his old design, use Monotone as a last option because it also leads to a one-tone character (Eula) and distribute the white and black better since they do lead to lead to better design visually at first, due to simple -> easy for the mind to digest but then the simplicity of everything described with one adjective will destroy any world building and reason to care.

Even though I thought these were random npc mother and daughter but good. I don't have a horse in the shipping stuff but if they're gonna ship Zhongli with Guizhong she better look like a mature woman with an elegant look. It's been forever and a half since Liyue's Archon quest so my memory is fuzzy, didn't Zhongli speak fondly of her in way she was like a passionate goddess-like lady who was friends with him and the other adepti?

Salt salt I know but I wanted Chinese elegant lady design from Genshin because I swear I remember being promised as such in her description, it's no coincidence that all artists drew her as a graceful lady- instead, long-sleeved kid.

What's funny is that if Guizhong was doing the same things with Zhongli as she was described doing with Ping, Zhongli x Guizhong shippers would call it confirmed canon and rub it in the faces of every other Zhongli x whoever shipper. But now that it suddenly turns out she was in an intimate relationship with Madame Ping instead of Zhongli they're seething like mad with their "not everything has to be romantic, they're just friends" commentary kek. I hated Guili shippers from day for creating the lore out of thin air forcing their fanmade canons on everyone even to the point of trying to shill Ningguang as the "reborn Guizhong" because they couldn't cope with her being a lesbian, so let this be a lesson to them to go fuck themselves.

Anyway they have a really, really cute dynamic and I'm glad it turned out like this.

I think you're better off being mad at them because Mihoyo couldn't give less shits about the opinions of fujos. Whichever the case, even if they retconned the entire thing into Guizhong being more relevant to Ping than Zhongli I fully welcome it.

Why would they give in to fujos when they're an extremely niche audience compared to others and they rarely care about the canon anyway, and even risk getting jail time if they're too open about what they like in the mainland? The much more probable outcome is that they heard the millions of Zhongli husbandofags who didn't like the idea of having a rival waifu. Just like they keep all the girl characters pure and virginal for all the male waifufags who would otherwise threaten to shoot up their office if their personal best girl is taken by someone else. Seriously, just recently husbandofags in China tried to make Mihoyo get rid of Kaveh because he was too close to Alhaitham kek. It could be that Mihoyo revised the story of Guizhong and Zhongli but let's be real a lot of what was theorycrafted between them was just that, fanfiction created by people based on very limited snippets of the story that couldn't be interpret either way.

There's no doubt that they're also catering to them with ships like the mentioned Alhaitham and Kaveh but let's be real, they'll never be powerful enough to shift the gears or if there were any gears to be shifted to begin with as Guizhong and Zhongli being "lovers" was never a thing supported by the story.

Multiple danmei (i.e. Chinese BL) authors have been interrogated or jailed by officials, the most well-known case being MXTX who had to move her business to Singapore to get her books into printing but got 3 years in jail. So yes, it's a thing. It's also why Mihoyo migrated their publications under Cognosphere, to escape the censorship in mainland China and it's why the Chinese servers applied Rosaria's extreme boob nerf and put Mona in a leotard to hide her ass.

No, the yume audience isn't bigger they're just louder and have more power because they can play the "homos are gross" card and cry to the CCP if something bothers them. I would say the fujo audience is clearly bigger since lofter is basically 90% gay ships (and that's where all female artists post their art/fanfics) and I found random fujos on nearly every chinese platform. The yume audience is still sizeable enough to be recognized by the game developers but keep in mind they sometimes overlap with the otome crowd and the hetshipper crowd so we can't know their exact numbers anyway. Normies and men are also more likely to side with them so they have extra shielding, while fujos tend to be attacked from all sides (but that happens in the west too it's not a china-only thing)

Afaik mxtx was jailed (allegedly) because she illegally published novels, not because of the content inside. She also had a bunch of unhinged antis and trolls (who were also fujos btw) who were mad at her because she didn't make their ships canon and because she was "too famous", so her situation is a bit complicated. Fujos in china are definetly on thin ice though, but it's not illegal to be one or anything like that since many of them proclaim to love BL on weibo and no one says anything. The gov is just very autistic about explicit content (and not just the gay kind) and we know fujos are the community most likely to churn out sexual stuff…

Something more to add in but just because yumes have an advantage with being straight and liking straight ships, doesn't mean they aren't constantly clowned in the fandoms they take part in. At least in the genshin fandom a ton of people can't stand them because they're known to often cause a ruckus. That doesn't make fujos innocent though, they can still be just as unhinged but they're more careful with their tantrums because unless they talk to a fujo author they can't explicitly say "please make x and y a gay couple" to a regular game company lol So a lot of the drama remains in their community, while yumes tend to go out of their way to make it known to everyone how much they hate gays or insert any threat to their husbando

>>271034
>Afaik mxtx was jailed (allegedly) because she illegally published novels, not because of the content inside.
However that's basically the go-to excuse the state executives use to jail people to save face. Like protesters in China get jailed for "creating civil unrest" when they're rallying against human rights atrocities, and using a VPN is seen as a "terrorist action" and/or treason. The "jailed for illegal publishing" pretty much stands for "publishing illegal content by using a proxy" in the context of CCP. It's not illegal to be a fujo, but you have to thread very, very carefully which is why a lot of content creators move their business to other countries. Not only fujos, but also everyone else creating content that could be seen as dubious.

Chinese censorship is actually a really interesting topic not a lot of westerners are aware of and Genshin's silly cleavage covering got clowned on a lot because nobody realized how the government could essentially just take over Mihoyo if they refused to comply and gain all the revenue or cut their funding if they wanted to. I sometimes wonder if a lot of what happened in Sumeru actually mirrors their experiences.

>Normies and men are also more likely to side with them so they have extra shielding, while fujos tend to be attacked from all sides

This. If men specifically are given the chance to punish women for liking something they don't, they'll support any cause wholeheartedly.

>>271039
Generally speaking the Chinese side of the fandom is a lot more amplified in its insanity than people realize no matter what corner they sit in. Fujos in China have a lot of unhinged internal drama too, but like you said it has to be kept below a certain line to keep flying under the radar. The yumes on the other hand have free reign to sperg how much they hate gay people because it's openly encouraged by the government or how no other bitch can touch their husbando because they can always threaten with reporting the company to the officials for whatever indecent thing they can come up with.

Just a bunch of crazy alhaitham yumes threatened by kaveh mingled with a few retarded fujos. The yumes were seething big this time and wanted to report mihoyo for "homosexual content".

I'm not able to dig up the sources right now so you just have to go on the trust me sis basis, but in a nutshell they were losing their minds over Alhaitham's key idle and threatening to report it to the officials for gay propaganda and even before that they called Kaveh a "green tea bitch" (綠茶婊) which is basically a Chinese online slang term word for someone who's trying to cuck you out of a husband by deception.

I didn't know this, however I find it hard to believe haikaveh isn't accepted by cn fujos when their dynamic (rich guy/guy in debt) should be up their alley. I remember they really liked cynonari even if some tighnari yumes were seething. Haikaveh/kavetham is a hit with the japanese market, so this meltdown from the cn community was really unexpected. Also if i were a yume, I'd rather husbando kaveh not someone extremely cold like alhaitham kek

No. 271063

>>271061
I meant that the few fujos who joined those yumes in their hate weren't approved by the Genshin fujo community as a whole because they all love Alhaitham and Kaveh, as to my understanding and getting authorities involved would be bad for them all. Not sure if I phrased that correctly. Ironically enough those yumes hating on Kaveh were also saying "Mihoyo doesn't consider the feelings of their female players" which is just nonsensical kek

>Also if i were a yume, I'd rather husbando kaveh not someone extremely cold like alhaitham kek

I don't know, my guess is that it has to do with how effeminate Kaveh is and how the entire pretty boy thing is being ran down in China currently. He has more of a gay best friend vibe to a woman than a husbando.

Saying that is like saying solidarity between men is a meme because they have waifu wars. Shit like this is always backed up and supported by men intentionally pitting women against each other.

It's not like that at all kek, they don't take that nearly as seriously. They're rarer than ever now; with the rise of porn, men just coom and coom and no longer care that much about the characters they're doing it to. And I didn't just mean that within the fandom context but in general. You are right that it's due to a long history of men pitting us against each other though, it's become an unfortunate female socialization staple.

Fujos aren't a small part of the fandom at all but get scraps? Yes. They drop hints for bl ships because they know men don't care about male characters. Same goes for Yumes, all characters are in love with the traveler, so reading the Kaveh thing shocked me, wtf?

It always came across self-inserters > shippers with how hard some characters break character just worship traveller kek what's with the Chinese fans?

In my humble opinion I don't think they key animation is hint to the ship as much as it's unintentional asshole based on the expression he gave, but there are other things that hint to the ship better, like why not go after the sentence "we are roommates" if they're serious? Or his trailer? Weirdos.

What is the statics on his sale btw? I have several whale male friends on genshin and they ignored him when they have all the rest?of they guys C4+, is the "key animation" affecting sales or something?

I read that someone couldn't get the source but PLEASE do post if you ever mind, I have to read this shit show.

Alhaitham has gotten very positive reviews from most theory crafters in both the west and in china now! Low investment and f2p friendly T0 damage up with Hu Tao and Ayaka in damage with his best teams. The day one pulls were kind of low but the feedback is very positive. I think his day one sales (mobile sales in China) were just under Yoimiya rerun. He’s never gonna get as much hype as Hu Tao and Ayaka since meta scrotes hate male characters but even then most incel meta slaves have admitted that he is T0, lower SS-tier or high S-tier character.

So what should mihoyo always pander to yumes just because they're a bunch of rich spoiled brats who expect every character to worship lumine? I'm glad mihoyo at least has some integrity to give the characters their personal life and relationships. Also it's good that they plaster aether everywhere, giving across the message that this isn't their otome fantasy game and it's instead directed at multiple audiences. If they want otome, just play tears of themis. The mc is already idolized by everyone in teyvat just by existing, what more do they want? If they think a set of keys is enough to ruin a character then they're unironically mentally ill and should seek therapy and take some meds. The female (yes not everyone who works at mihoyo is a scrote) writers/staff love alhaitham and kaveh and shouldn't have to bow down to any insecure bpd-chan. I'm pretty sure alhaitham is selling very well in japan so they're not worried about that

Also idk what's with the recent yume meltdowns on weibo because last year everyone was celebrating everytime genshin posted anything kaeluc related and they were calling them married and the reaction was very positive but suddenly last year there was a wave of new diluc yumes sperging that "he is too close to kaeya" which wasn't a problem before? I'm actually starting to think there might be some tencent shills trying to drag drown mihoyo's reputation because kaeluc was universally liked by female fans and everyone knew genshin pushes it, so it's weird for them to suddenly have breakdowns over it

Back in my day, Yumes would also like a bit of yaoi since it's like your reverse-Harem trying to look sexy or something. Are these even genuine reactions from Chinese Yumes? They never minded when tartali was at its peak and loved it even, so uh, are the western twitteros got in there and started complaining about Kaeluc and such? I've never seen the equivalent of proshipper dni except for them/them - retarded I know

I hope fujos and yumes calm down and stop going against each other because all it is girls tearing other girls for the same reason. Recently The vitriol between Guili, GuizhongxPing, LuminexZhongli and bl!Zhongli girls are trying their best to flame each other on social media and for what? Characters smooching and that makes them giggle?
Same goes for bl!Alhaithem and yumes, both spit poison and act shocked when poison is spat back. Save all the nice arts and fics no matter the subject and be as entertained as possible, no need to keep this pointless struggle when the goal is one because honestly, no one takes our side kek

Anyways sorry for this sperging, won't happen again promise.

But anyway, I shouldn't jinx myself but this odd af, got Alhaithem, his weapon really fast and his weapon domain mats? 4 timed when I used 20 resin it has a gold one, damn it feels good when I lose every 50/50

Yeah people forget that the staff has female members too and they definitely put things they like in the mix as well. People cry pandering but Alhaitham and Kaveh are written so lovingly I wouldn't doubt some based fujo in the writing team decided to just go crazy with the options. I generally don't have a problem with yumes but like you said the Chinese ones are the kind of rich spoiled brats who spend daddy's money on the game to whale for their husbandos and generally act insufferable everywhere.

>>271154
China has been cracking down on "gay propaganda" extra hard during the past two years, after they essentially banned "pretty boys" a lot of Chinese male models started bulking up and changing their bishounen image to suit the new regulations of manly men only. So some of them must be hired trolls to put a dent in Mihoyo's business, especially seeing how dirty the competing studios' practices can be like that Tower of Fantasy thing generating fake 5-star reviews and ripping off Genshin's assets. But because Genshin is a worldwide sensation and now based in Singapore with their international releases and a heavy emphasis on the Japanese market they keep churning out beautiful men Chinese government be damned.

Didn't the theorycrafters say he's Keqing tier? He was tier 0 SS ranking in beta but they gutted his ratios. I'm sure that contributed to his day one sales being bad, there was a lot of doomposting about him.

No. 271188

>>271182
The doomposting was because of the nerf, the Keqing likeliness was never about his kit but about his animations. What we know now is that pre-nerf he could have been better than any dps. Now post-nerf he is still great, maybe not THE best but he's up there with the best dps characters.

Fan wars and the sudden shift and hate compared to 2 years ago is unjustifiable but I can't entirely blame rich Chinese yumes for pressuring hyv. Scrotes were on suicide watch and damn near violent if a female pc wasn't geeked over the traveler, so I don't think it's entirely wrong if some women want the dating sim treatment.

For me the problem came with Guili shippers when they made up the entire romance between Zhongli and Guizhong based on practically nothing and even co-opted the song playing when Traveler met Xiao to somehow be a Guili lovers' anthem just because they said so, and now that the canon Liyue lore was expanded upon to clearly show how irrelevant Zhongli is to Guizhong in comparison to her loving relationship with Madame Ping they're trying to downplay it as them "just being friends" simply because it's two women instead of a man and a woman. Shipping is just for fun but people having obvious double standards mirrors real life homophobia and that gets to a lot of people.

>>271190
To be fair Ayaka (and maybe Noelle?) is the only girl that simps for the traveler to such embarrassing lengths, granted I haven't played all of the female characters' hangouts. Most of them just feel friendly, the male characters seem to be much more flirtier in nature like Childe, Xiao and Albedo.

>>271138
Theorycrafters doomposting over a male character get btfo'd once again, what a surprise. I'm enjoying Alhaitham a lot, his numbers might not be SS tier but he's extremely enjoyable to play with nevertheless. The nerf sucks ass but I really enjoy his playstyle. I feel like the banner sales were affected by the initial panic over his multipliers and Wanderer and Ayato's first rerun sucking the husbando collectors dry, maybe he'll do better in a rerun.

No. 271198

>>271195
he's still a keqing clone gameplay wise even if his damage is much higher. I think that's a bigger factor into his banner flopping, his kit is unoriginal and boring and he isn't likable enough to sell on his character alone.

>but what about yelan who did really well

I wanna say that as quite a new player (ar 30ish) I was really surprised by how much genshin has to offer. I always thought it was a small gacha game that wasn't about story or gameplay that much but it actually feels like a nice open world rpg with so much content everywhere.

I'm gonna drop this here, a bit of rant so be warned lol
Just finished the lantern rite and I don't get if the people who worked on it where too busy fapping than pay attention to the lore

Guizhong was supposed a wuxia-esque woman who has interest in tinkering and maybe, maybe not Zhongli and her were an item or just friends who cares she died rip
In here he basically serves no purpose (why add him then) and implying Ping and Guizhong are an item, but like, excuse my existence, isn't Ping a grandmother? Yanfei's? She had a family before and surely a husband that brought Yanfei's mom/dad(forgot who), why retardedly make it Yuri hint when ping is  an already established character? Guizhong and Cloud Retainer would've been a better pairing since Cloud Retainer is single and they would've have adoptive daughters even
I swear they're just throwing things and hope it sticks. Part of me thinks they went this way so no one is pissed, they gave a new pairing for Yuri fans, Zhongli for Yumes is still a virgin for them and Yaoi fans are happy since Zhongli is a virgin for Childe/whotever. I don't even think Guizhong x Zhongli fans want this Guizhong tbh

They keep doing this shit and let remind you, Beigguang, probably the only pairing everyone agrees on had a flirting scene in a Moonchase, a limited event instead of putting it in a  permanent similar to being unofficial ffs. Limited event basically means new players/players who missed it wont know about because it's just fanservice to them. I didn't even see a hint of flirting in their hangouts which is stupid? Why bother then.

I don't know if this event's lore as bad as I'm feeling it is or the disappointments are accumulating I feel paying attention to anything is pointless now.
please 3.5 be good with any lore. I sometimes wish I didn't have this sunk cost fallacy, but I swear the potential it had is what made me waste time on it.

On a positive note that cheered me up, Alhaithem's is hitting 37k per mirror in his burst, literally deleting everything and my friend's Ayaka can't keep up lol

First of all I want to say that I genuinely can't believe how hard Guizhong being lovers with Madame Ping is breaking the minds of all the Guili shippers, they go from these stupid copes like "b-but ackshually they're just like a mother and daughter because height difference so you're supporting incest btw" to "lol who cares about shipping anyway" to "actually Guizhong can be in a poly relationship with both lol!" back to "who gives a fuck about shipping not me!" and then to "fuck the lore who even reads this stupid story!!!".

>isn't Ping a grandmother? Yanfei's?

She's not. She looked after Yanfei because her actual parents fucked off. She doesn't have a family, she literally spends all of her time reminiscing after Guizhong.

>I don't even think Guizhong x Zhongli fans want this Guizhong tbh

They sure didn't, they wanted a manic pixie dream girl mary sue getting railed by Rex Lapis, not a geeky lesbian creating things kek.

Anon, I swear just because I don't like this version of Guizhong doesn't mean I want you or any Guizhong x Ping to die or take it away from you, I don't even ship anything, okay? Shipping is supposed to be a hobby in fandoms not a life style, right? I'm disappointed in the direction Genshin is getting since last update so don't take it that I'm Guili shipper or whichever shitty ship that gets you and others upset.
At the end of the day, it's a ship, don't pour your anger you got from Guile girls on me, it's two characters fucking who curs lol
My main complaint was HYV Yuri, is trash, not the Genre itself. I hated it in Honkai and hated it here, but I guess we'll agree to disagree.

>they wanted a manic pixie dream girl mary sue getting railed by Rex Lapis

LOL for real? I guess it's in teen spaces, they look like father and daughter.

>She looked after Yanfei because her actual parents fucked off.

Oh shit my bad, heard her say granny and grandma and thought she was her real grandma since I do remember her parents gtfo.

>Doesn't make it less canon

I didn't disagree with that, my point was HYV's yuri is for the fanservice only and they should add these hints in the permanent content.

>you sure do write long discussion openers
I wouldn't mind discussing anything at all, but when it starts with "you're a shipper of a ship I hate" I don't think things will turn sweet.
I thought Ping had a family and She's Yanfei's grandma, which is why I said cloud retainer, that wasn't the case sure, but even if she isn't it doesn't change HYV handling Yuri badly because it's so surface-level and lacking any permanent content when it's treated god-like. I put a rant warning because I know shippers are sensitive for some reason

I'm glad you and some other anons found the content/ship entertaining you guys, for real. I'm hoping 3.5 doesn't disappoint with Kaeya/Dains/Abyss content otherwise I'll die on the inside and rant here again lmao

I'm not even invested in genshin shipping but I've seen a lot of people posting DON'T SHIP THEM WHY CAN'T THEY JUST BE FRIENDS and that's so bizarre to me because genshin fans ship characters for much less or even the ones that never interact.

I didn't consider the designs that coomerish? Compared to examples like Shenhe or Yelan at least. And their relationship was really adorable and organic, Ping didn't turn out as some obsessive tragic angsty lesbian kind of BPD-chan but a genuinely sorrowful person who lost her better half, I was very pleasantly surprised by how they handled it compared to Honkai which is just yuribait coomershit up and down.

Hey nonnies 10-pulls aren't luckier than single pulls whenever I get a new wish, right? I feel like I always see someone posting screenshot of a 10-pull that has multiple charas in it, I am trying to get Alheitham so I feel free to pull as soon as I get a new wish but the only thing I get are shit weapons and I really only get a character every 10th pull (and sometimes I even get a weapon instead). Is it just unlucky RNG or should I save my wishes and do 10 at once? Or is single pulling in one session better than randomly whenever I get a new wish?

Just finished lantern rite and holy shit mihoyo is feeding us fujos so well. The Xiaoven, Zhongven, Xiaoaether and Zhongxiao fanservice they gave us. I watched different playthroughs and whenever the traveler blames Venti for making Xiao uncomfortable he goes all soft and says n-no. When you blame Zhongli he gets super protective and frustratingly says it’s not that at all!! I died of cuteness. Even the way that Xiao only came because he knew the traveler would be there, way too cute!! And the glances and gazes Zhongli and Venti shared! I can die happy.

If you go to the crux you’ll see Venti and Kazuha talk about how Beidou won’t let them drink alcohol because they’re too short! Again, so cute!!

>Imo I think she's another Yae, will shine with the next nation dropping kek
Obviously. Dehya can't use XQ or Yelan a few patches before the hydro nation drops. Huh I wonder why?

Meanwhile Alhaitham works with XQ/yelan, has a great kit at C0 and does not need constellations, does T0 dps damage, has great f2p sword options and has teams centered around the best dendro reactions. It's so nice to finally see the scrotes seethe with their shitty waifu's kit.

I just think she sucks, some noob designed her kit and her sales are gonna suck because of it. Or it's a weird colorism thing that they're going to use to justify not making dark-skinned characters because Dehya is likely gonna sell like shit.
If Fontaine somehow makes her better (but I don't see how it wouldn't make every other pyro DPS 10x better) then people can just go for a rerun. No one should pull a 5* that has no guarantee of getting better, there's just as much chance that they're abandoned like Xiao was for two entire years.
Right now she has worse damage than Xinyan, of all units. Xinyan, one of the worst 4*s. That's pathetic.

I’ve heard this colorism thing a lot and I just don’t think mihoyo thinks that way. Kaeya is one of the most popular male characters among the Japanese and Chinese fujos and he’s a very strong 4-star at C6. Cyno also is popular amongst at least Japanese fujos from what I can see and his kit is good, he just lacks a good dendro support tailored to him. I genuinely believe that they’re trying to rework kits that are bad, like Keqing and Xinyan, into new characters but just failed with Dehya.

Honestly I don't think that colorism is their goal either, because if it was they wouldn't give anyone dark skin. I just think it's unfortunate that apart from Kaeya the dark-skinned characters have unusual or crappy kits.
Dehya got nerfed even further on Monday, which I just don't get. There's no way they're getting feedback that she's too strong. I guess there's still a little hope, Kokomi got emergency buffs a day before her release, but it's a shame she sucks. Guess I'll be waiting for Murata or a husbando for my next Pyro DPS.

Queen.
Since you're new
1. don't use the primogems on the blue wishes, only the rainbow ones
2. When you wish on any banner you get stardust, 15 per wish, you can go to shop > Paimon's bargain > stardust exchange and buy 5 rainbow wishes.
3. To collect gems quickly, go to quests and look at the rewards, do the ones that give you primogems

You have 12 days and a half to get him, I believe you can and if you go to "events overview" (compass icon) you'll see an event called "The exquisite night chimes" (opens after finishing Liyue's quest) and May "fortune finds you", those give nice amount of gems too.

Dailies for about 3 days gets you a single roll, and about 27 days for a 10 roll. It adds up over time. Not sure how many rolls worth of primos you get in the average event.

Don't rush leveling your ar, if your characters can't do enough damage it's gonna be a pain in the ass in the overworld. Your world level will increase by leveling your ar, meaning stronger opponents. I did that mistake early on and had to ask people for help in co-op for weeks. If you feel like your characters are strong and don't struggle at all at the AR-ascension domain, then you'll be fine.

Here are some ways to get level your AR:
>do domains
>do leyline flowers
>do the randomized short quests in the overworld, for example "Lianne's troubles" by Dawn Winery
>do the story quests

No. 271895

>>271894
Seconding the no rush strategy. I upped my AR way too soon and every quest and overworld monster was a huge struggle before my characters caught up. Take it slow and only up the level when you actually have the need for it i.e. to gain better drops for higher level characters, not right away when the quest becomes available. World quests are a good resource too, they unlock a ton of stuff as well. There are multiple guides to them and some of them are time locked i.e. you can only advance them once a day.

Nope.
Chests are the same no matter the difficulty, it's the enemy drops (hilichurl mask.. etc.) and boss drops that will be affected by just a bit. And then you can revert back no problem, except it's after 24 hours minimum. Not sure why.

Any leak this ambiguous before a beta is always unreliable af I feel. Like the anon above me said, they're remaking his badly rendered outfit. There has been more revealing male characters, the crop top isn't a huge deal enough to be censored.

The best thing I do is basically realizing that a character/gacha can't make the game fun. I got 4 new characters during Sumeru and after I had built them, which took around 3 days each, I was bored again. Gacha doesn't cure boredom with the game, new areas and story/lore content is the only thing making this game interesting.

Also nonnies the most retarded beta nerf happened to Mika's animation where he went from getting a unique shy animation to a generic pose. Why bother animating something just to delete it? The 3.5 beta is just so incredibly messy, with deyha's kit being designed as a 3-star and all too.

I hope this is the case since there are these "heavenly principles" but there two things in my mind:

2)this game is for teens, I feel they can't go as deep as 'this is hell all long!!!' because they might be told to tone it down and get shit like this is all a ~dream~

Things like Dottore's actions keep giving me hope that we can get dark themes but sometimes with how crappy and kiddy the writing get I lose hope again. Reward me for my patience with you Genshin pls

Why are nonnies freaking out about Mika being on the Eula banner when each phase of the update has 2 banners to pull from. So phase 1 for example could be Dehya, Nahida and phase 2 could be Eula, Cyno (Hypothetically). So Mika could still be in a banner you could pull on that’s not Eula.

She can work with national if you make it Ayato + Yunjin + Bennett + Kazuha
Ayato applying hydro, Bennett burst, Kazuha burst, Yunjin burst then slish slash big numbers from Vape, Kazuha boost and Yunjin normal attack boost.
I'd say this team is fun for bosses for I don't know for abyss, unless you can guarantee the 3 supports have their burst when they should every rotation then go for it.

Yunjin is a solid support for alot of characters, if you have wanderer she's really good with him too, and Childe or Cyno if you go the normal attack route with their attacks.

That's why I said "Literally every time".

No. 272504

>>272503
There are no official banner sales numbers, only the Chinese iOS store sales that are released which means the amount of money put into the game during a banner's run which could be bought gems, welkins and battle passes. That's why the numbers jump disproportionately around the time top-ups are reset. There's no way to know regional differences because they're not released except for occasional single banners because we know for example that Ayato became the 3rd best selling banner in Japan when he was first released.

Holy shit you're right. I don't know why I forgot sales weren't based off of wishing but purchasing crystals and co.
Imo the only reason I can think of why Alhaithem's sales are probably low, or lower than expected is because players already have Nahida and have eyes on Yelan + Weapon banner. And that weapon banner sure looks good.

Doesn't Genshin already offers two way(or more) to interpret any interaction? I.e. You can consider Kaeluc brothers or you can consider them a ship depending on preference. Can't male players eat shit and interpret them as friends or roommates and ignore shipping?

Alhaitham and Kaveh are an extremely popular ship in Japan at least and they're probably the biggest market everyone wants to enter so I doubt they'll slow down with the gay shit, it's mostly the Chinese who are butthurt. But more importantly they also got mad at Mihoyo because of things like picrel, there seemed to be a ton of drama around him in their online circles due to the nerf.

Trial run is an awful way to see if a character is actually strong, to be fair. Anything can destroy the trial, even the worst of 4-stars. And seeing leaks from beta that say a character got their scalings nerfed from 700% to 200% is very alarming. It just happens that hyperbloom is so powerful that Alhaitham is still super strong.

The other thing is people might be saving for Hu Tao and Yelan later this patch, because those two are turbo powerful and their weapons are known for being amazing stat sticks.

I never found out if this was indeed true or something the CN community heard and ran with. The number in question is from what I understood a Chinese pun where you mock someone. Some Chinese players also said that one of Alhaitham's talents in the beta files said "the one who uses this is a fool". This was all under the twitter tag #savealhaitham that consisted of Chinese women with broken ass English that claimed that mihoyo was mocking female players with the beta information/nerf. So it really gave an insight to how angry some people in the CN community were during the beta. However from what I've heard they're now praising the shit out of him for being better than expected after the beta nerfs and that he's super f2p friendly with various great team comps possibilities.

I think as long as it's hyperbloom or spread teams you can get insane alhaitham damage with all male supports in the very near future. Kaveh or baizhu for dendro resonance, xinqiu with hydro application, zhongli shield etc. Baizhu is also rumored to be a shielder so that works too. The only issue is if you want electro application, we still don't have a male electro support.

Plenty of chinese games thrive with fujobait, genshin also did it a long time, idk why are they suddenly acting like this. From what I've seen star rail is also full of it. I think it's bad news for us because they might double down on "no homo" from now on (and same might happen to star rail too). The fujo community is fucking huge in china (BL series were literally more popular than straight romance so they had to ban them) and the game hasn't been really pandering to yumes lately so I don't think we've got an influx, there must be another explanation for this backlash. Also, isn't xiao super popular with yumes? Why is he also flopping? In fact xiao has been a flop since his 2nd rerun, and again his entire fanbase in china is made up of yumes. Alhaitham is actually meta so are male players really avoiding him because they think he's too gay? Metafags usually don't care and this time they're actually praising him. Shenhe also got a ton of backlash that lead to censorship but her sales were still decent. Also from what I've seen alhaitham still seems to have a big female fanbase in china otherwise they wouldn't be so mad over his nerf.

Everyone who wants Xiao likely already has him and his kit isn't exactly strong. A DPS falling off after multiple reruns isn't uncommon in a gacha.
A lot of people don't like the Ayaka skin and she's not running right now, which probably doesn't help. But overall I think people pulled for Scaramouche and now they're recovering, and the waifu wanters are going to go for Yelan and Hu Tao.

Ayaka's skin is kinda bland and Scaramouche looks way cuter in it than her. They didn't even bother changing her fan to match her new outfit. Not giving her special effects like pink blossom petals in her attack animations seem like a real missed opportunity too.

>>272566

this and also, xiao's constellations aren't that good until C6. That's too much even for dedicated fans. Less incentive to roll for him even if you already have him. This is why they started moving the really good constellations up to C2 for the newer characters.

I wish shippers showed tolerance to other not taking their ships romantically. It's hot, yeah! Fun, sure! But always putting any two in the same hawt sex/snuggling over and over gets boring. The moment someone chooses the other route like enemies or friends or whatever so much rage is shown as if it's deleting their existence and opinions.
It's painful too because sometimes I like the way they think and want to talk to them about some scenarios as AUs for fun and they take it the wrong way when I don't want any romance/sexual aspect.

NTA but despite bickering they pretty clearly don't hate each other, Alhaitham has endless patience for Kaveh while everyone else he leaves hanging and he practically pays for everything in his life while putting up with his whims and chaos, Kaveh treats him with admiration and only nags at him because he cares about him and wants him to become a more empathetic person. Kaveh was even worried about Alhaitham enough to ask him if he's okay when he heard there were people out to get him, he cleans his house, he praises him during his character demo and invites him to spend the evening with him. They're like an old married couple that argues because they trust each other enough to know they won't be hurt by it. If they hated each other Alhaitham would've kicked Kaveh out of his house the moment he was making noise hammering on his building project in the night instead of tolerating it.

I strongly disagree. I think it’s a good ship, they have strong personalities on their own and balance each another in a funny way when interacting. They have better chemistry than most of the almost-canon straight ships, and I say that as someone who likes straight ships a lot too. Most of Genshin ships are dry as hell and the characters barely interact and when they do it feels artificial somehow, these two are cute with the keychain thing and so on.

Also Kaveh and Alhaitham symbolize the two kinds of wisdom that Nahida mentioned in her voice line so they're clearly meant to be seen as opposites that are at constant odds but still fulfill each other. They're so heartwarming and funny that I'm just filled with good vibes whenever I see them together, they care for each other so deeply that Alhaitham has two separate voicelines about Kaveh and mentions him in many of the other ones, highlighting how fascinating he finds him and his general attitude towards life. Despite being so stoic and selfish he still clearly cares about him and his wellbeing, and Kaveh looks after him just the same. I can't wait to see more of them and I hope Kaveh gets released at some point and has either a story quest or a hangout attached with him. I just love them that much.

>Kaveh is the star student of Kshahrewar and revered as a famed architect in Sumeru, he's much more famous than Alhaitham who's basically a nobody compared to him in terms of being known.
>According to voice lines and NPC dialogue he's an extremely productive person passionate for his work, he constructed the Palace of Alcazarzay, his magnum opus, which ultimately wrecked him financially leading him to become Alhaitham's roommate.
>He stands by helping people and living by his feelings and conscience, which is why he ends up fighting with Alhaitham on the message boards when he tells Kaveh to stop being so naive about the world around him while Kaveh wants to believe the best out of everyone, the personality trait that eventually lead him into going debt.
>He was even conned into buying a ton of keychains because he was told the proceeds would go into feeding hungry children.
>Despite all of this he's not just a buffoon, Nahida even praises him for "having the perfect grasp of what it means for Sumeru to be a nation of wisdom".

Damn it I'm late to the Alhaithem & Kaveh discussion (again)

All I wanted to say that I was a Alhaithem hater since his interactions with others in Archon quest sucked I thought he was as autistic as Eula with his knowledge talk but thankfully they added that scene with Kaveh to show that he is compassionate, funny, cute or warm (whatever you wanna call it) side,like a real likable character would be.
Now I'm a fan and got him and his weapon, happy ending kek
Also! His character trailer made me love Kaveh so much.

I don’t hate the models but it’s genuinely weird how age works in Genshin. All the kid characters look around 5 but act like they’re 12-20 and even have a long lore that they couldn’t have if they were actually their age. I was super confused when I started playing Genshin a few months ago and met the florist girl and the Elon Musk hilichurl linguist girl that’s even some kind of a scholar. Because how the fuck do these kids already have jobs?? And the playable models look even younger than NPC kids, they legit look 5. Diona looks proportions-wise like the age in which she can barely form longer sentences but she acts like a tsundere teenager.

And the short models that often get infights here all act like they’re in their twenties/thirties and even have graduated schools, have deep voices, have jobs that would need a lot of years of work but look like they’re in their mid-teens. It’s pretty confusing.

It's due to limitations in the game, they can only have a few different models so every male who isn't a manly adult has to be put in the teenager model. It's obvious that characters like Tighnari and Cyno are adults because they hold positions of power and have vast experience and knowledge with what they do, but because they would look awkward being the same height as Itto and Zhongli they're given the teenager model. The same goes for characters like Keqing and Yanfei, they're clearly adults but because they're not "ladies" like Jean or Ningguang they fall into this crack of short female and tall female. Their canonical heights vary a lot more, see picrel where Aether is clearly a lot shorter than Venti despite them sharing the same model.

Diluc looks so beautiful in your pic, nonnie. I honestly don't mind the limited models, it can't be helped tbh, with a bit of imagination you can think of the different heights and body types.
I just hate when people draw someone like a claymore character, say Diluc, like a twink when he carries around a huge ass sword, or Noelle who also carries around a huge sword, with a retarded microscopic waist, or when people draw Mona ripped when she's a poorfag who can barely afford any food.
And when it comes to the ages of the characters and such, I think we need some intermediate models or something to make the young adults, or more features for the older characters, but again it can't be helped because there's no way someone will take the time to basically redesign the characters, and it feels unnecessary because just by the context is easy to understand the kind of characters they are.
Like Kaeya, he's not a teenager, it's pretty obvious, but you can't say that someone like Bennet is an adult.

Nta but there really is limitations. Just like in the sims franchise, you can’t edit height on your sims, because then each height difference would need new animations with everything.

I think it’s because the two demographics they wanted to sell to are weeaboos and kids on their iPhones who use their allowances to buy welkin. Seasoned weeaboos think it’s normal for 5 year old girl characters to be war veterans, and kids genuinely can never seem to tell the difference and will go “no, plenty of grown adult men look just like the teen model, touch grass!” but they’re thinking of their 14 year old peers in school as their reference for what “men” look like.
Personally I just deal with that half the people in the game look like little kids because it’s a cartoon and East Asia is weirdly obsessed with kids/teenagers as a beauty standard. Cyno looks like he would throw rocks at cars and ask if I have games on my phone.

Baizhu should of course be a fucking healer, he works with medicine for fucks sake.

How strong did they intend to make him anyway? When you hear nerf you think the character was good turned to shit but he's still op with far less Energy problems (Sorry Childe international) what were they thinking with him pre-nerf kek

Also, what are the people scrotes who compare him to Keqing are thinking? I fully built her with 999 and awesome artifacts just to check myself yet she's still shit, better than before but doesn't compare to him? Even his Skill reach is higher.

I run Zhongli (TotM) with fav Lance

And Bennett (Noblesse) Aquila
He hits 70-80k per charged shot (which is awesome tbh) and always has his burst up, I'm guessing artifact's sub energy recharges help?
Try also putting Emblem or Exile on the fourth character of that team,
Mona or Ningguang maybe with TToD?

Oh yeah, do you do normal attack after casting skills before burst/ starting the rotation? Normal attack also gives energy

itto isn't even a super busted character, no need to fixate on him. you can replace him with childe, ayato, cyno, or tighnari teams. I use itto because I like him, gorou, and albedo, if he had noelle's 4* kit instead I'd still be using him. but who is your last team slot? it should be aether or fischl if not albedo. I never heard of any itto having energy problems. give gorou more ER and crit and use his ult before his skill, then use his skill right after to give particles to itto. throw ushi immediately for more.

>>273510
no wanderer is the only dps. kaeya and chongyun were on that team because one floor had water shield abyss mages and I needed them to break those quickly. cryo gives scaramouche a crit buff so I used their ults on the other floors too to keep that up. both run nobless, kaeya c2 chong c6, wanderer runs the inazuman set that eats your energy, c0 r1.

>>273500
anon, that particular list isn't based on usage. it's purely the opinion of a click baiting autist no one takes seriously on cn. the disdain for him was lost in translation because non-cn speaking plebbitors assume anything meta related made by chankz = gospel. cyno is way lower on the list and had like double alhaitham's revenue did he not?

No. 273544

characters rerun regardless, you gotta be retarded to think a character will never rerun again if there isn't enough {demand} for them. fighting over revenue and strength is all thinly veiled dick measuring. it's cringe and an indirect admission that you've been malding for years when reddit neckbeards smugly put their waifus on pedestals, which they still do for alhaitham as they advocate using nahida over him btw it's like a hu tao vs xiangling situation between the two.

I wonder if alhaitham is younger than cyno, because it seems like they weren't studying during the same period at the akademiya. Cyno probably graduated a bit earlier since he's from the same generation as lisa. I wish we had more official ages, according to the manga we only know that amber is around 17 (probably 18 in game timeline) and diluc is 21 (22 in game timeline) so the characters are probably much younger than their jobs would suggest

I remember Childe's voice actor was wished harm when he was in the hospital for no reason.
Bennett's voice actress was bullied to delete a cringy video (it was cringy but the reaction was like she killed a child and ate it).
Diluc's voice actor retweeted cute Adult Diluc holding kid Kaeya's hand while walking and twittards raged as the artist, not him, was supporting Kaeluc and cried incest.

Japanese Bennett is the best though, he sounds like an older teen guy, I could not play him in EN.
I also really don’t agree with anons that JP women are squeaky, I think EN are in general squeakier and sound more shrill. I think English doesn’t suit the moe anime girl tone of voice and that’s why it sounds so forced and irritating. Neither of these is my native language btw.

I fully agree. I don't like the Japanese dub's high-pitched anime girl voices, but I don't understand how people consider the shrill English voices and phoney acting an improvement.

nahida's va is black which i didn't expect and she did nagatoro's english dub? and fucking ruins it btw because her speech impediment is real and not faked for the game. it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. idk what it is but i've never heard anyone talk with that tiny weird affliction before.

Sometimes I wonder if this behavior is even outright encouraged by the Mihoyo staff since Chinese officials love to meddle in American politics and incite infighting and political controversy generates views and exposure.

Saying this as a someone that doesn’t give that much shit about it, just watched some YouTube vids and compilations, he was one of the funnier en VAs, that is why people liked him.

That's the exact reason why they'll add a girl, Ningg and Noelle are weak for meta and Geo, like anemo is mostly males so how can they force male players to wish for geo support gang if not for a new cat girl?
Assuming that's the plan they have then she better be 5 stars and dps, which is likely since Itto is the only dps geo has and there aren't any 5 star geo girls.

Chinese dub is also full of life compared to Japanese. Not sure why you only compare it to the English dub.

Frankly even if they were actual blood related brothers I wouldn't care if someone ships them. Incest is a taboo thing and gross to most of us but even irl it's legal (maybe not to marry but you won't get thrown in a jail) as long as it's consensual and of similar age and not pedo like a parent/uncle preying on their own child/nephew. Now this is fiction, so it's even MORE retarded to waste your precious time seething at people who like that and enjoy darker fic in general but they're so out of touch with reality they think it's the same thing as someone like tighnari's va, who is an actual psycho pedo. That's actually concerning

Don't underestimate yumes. ToT is a game catered specially to them and twittards know it, they know if they made a big deal out of anything yumes will ignore them and continue doing what they do. Which is the correct reaction honestly.
It's the fault of many fujos who are afraid of idiots and abide by their 'moral' rule
I had friends who are slightly famous in Persona fandom who pretend to be a they and deleted their previous works, rebranded because they can't grow or get commission once they/thems report and lie about people and that hurts the algorithm.

Yeah it’s the most obvious fanservice relationship. As an old-school weeb I genuinely think it’s so weird how the genshin/anime fans on twitter are so against it.

It's because no one gives a shit about ToT. There's no point in yelling at the 3 true and honest autists that do. Compare that to the massive popularity of Kaeluc and other BL ships.

No1curr about yumes at large except the male incels who hate everything women like, and fujos when they get harassed by them directly. Their community isn't in any way close-knit like the fujo community, all they do is make bad fan art of their overdesigned self inserts that no one interacts with and mass produce x reader fics.

People will hate you because you spoke the truth, nonnie. This isn't even picking a fight, it's just stating the facts.

ToT isn't a flop though, despite not making numbers as huge as Honkai or Genshin it turns a pretty good profit for what it is (practically a visual novel with no real gameplay) and it's clear that people play it, they just aren't interested in talking about it. It's the same for most otome games, they exist but they don't have a huge community because they're based on self-indulging and not sharing the experience.

it would still take time to find a fitting va, draw up the contract with the other va, and re-record & replace lines. I'm not sure if they'll be able to do all of that by the next patch. For now, all they may be able to do is mute the character.

Being a Genshin VA is too lucrative and many of these English VAs in particular are too parasitic. Just about every English VA who's officially announced nowadays immediately pretends to be the official characters, establishes a social media following, and somehow think their insignificant roles justify launching into a streaming career. I miss the old days when no one gave a shit about these people. Too many of these VAs are letting their Genshin roles get to their head.

NTA but I don't hate yumes and usually other fujos don't either because we don't even think about them enough to have an opinion, but they continuously put fujos under scrutiny and consider their ship art alone a personal attack. Like one of the anons said they seethe so hard over gay ships "taking away" their husbandos that they get actual websites shut down because they can't emotionally deal with them existing, then proceed to call fujos pornsick fetishists and misogynists for not supporting their straight self insert ship.

I don't have anything against yumes or straight ships either (I will shit on the coomery ones though) but they're not treated the same let's be honest. Just look at all the psychoanalysis going on here with fujos. There are anons (women, hopefully) reinforcing the stereotype that fujos are all fat and ugly loveless retards while yumes are based stacies as if they weren't about the same kind of retard. I personally haven't seen fujos being this aggressive to other real women (and the female character hate was only a thing in the 2000s), especially because a lot of them are also straight and in relationships. I get that both get shat on by males, but fujos are hated by other women as well.

samefag, but as you said yumes/self-inserters going out of their way to harass mihoyo for the Kaveh and Alhaitam thing is unhinged but also inevitable. Since they self-insert and latch onto the character (and can't tell fiction from reality) of course they don't tolerate if the canon isn't as they wanted it. By now fujos are pretty much used to not having things cater to them so they go on and make their raunchy porn even if the characters are canonically straight, but a lot of yumes can't do that when it happens to them and proceed to mald.

NTA but personally my only IRL encounter with a yume (incidentally in the Genshin fandom) was a girl in her 20's who constantly complained about how she's being bullied by fujos because they ignored her Chris Chan-esque self insert art, thus everyone around who already hated them (mostly waifufag pickmes and scrotes) took that as ammunition and this lines up with my online experiences as well. They're not as extreme as the Chinese ones because the Chinese fandom is demented on all fronts to begin with, but still cause a huge headache. The anon >>274838 here described it best, they need to learn not to be so fixated on the canon and not being catered to.

Well, naturally.

Whenever a relationship is mentioned, there is something in our brain (subconsciously) that simulates it. Imagine if this ugly fuck >>274557 asked you out you would be disgusted, do you know why? Because your brain just simulated it. even though you haven't tried a relationship with him, you're still disgusted. This happens with everything, even Genshin's ships. Some ships you wouldn't mind and other you would for the same reason.
So when I saw the cutscene, which was normal and then you and others were calling it as official couple and totes in love disgusted me because I have a sister and friends that treat each other this way, we're actually closer now but the notion that any girl who likes or takes care of another are lesbians for them? However maybe you and your gf are like that and good on you both, that's cute tbh but don't attribute that behavior to ONLY lesbians. I used '"could" be friend' because I know this might be romantic to someone else but you (or could be another) went all ham about how I want your existence deleted.
>but that's fiction, Can't you distinguish reality from fiction?
We all can, but it's the first reaction and mentality. Guizping shippers aren't lacking in IQ, they know but even though Guizping is fiction and my (or other's) assertion that it isn't romantic is aswell doesn't matter, they have anger accumulated from previous experiences that blinds them.
Like you won't hear me complain "they are freeends!!" about Ningguang and Beidou, for obvious reasons.
And I don't care about any yaoi because I'm no moid.

No I'm all for shipping, I'm against the targeting from yumes to fujos and vice versa since both are friendly in this thread and I would love for things to stay that way. Not every disagreement has to be a fight. Especially when it kills any momentum previous subjects built.

>>274858
Yes you do, it happens subconsciously. You can read about it and how it affects judgement and stuff. Or, of course I can explain it you in easier terms? Up to you queen.

See how many posts anyone talking about this subject were wasted? What have we gained? Literally nothing. If someone pissed you off take it out in the vent thread, don't kill the mood here with vendettas and vitriol.

Being disgusted by same sex relationships is a homophobia no matter how you spin it. Yes female friends care for each another but lesbians and gays do too.
Also, you’re not those two characters and it’s weird as fuck how you think they are basically you and your friends and should and would act like you would. Your life experience doesn’t matter at all,

> they have anger accumulated from previous experiences that blinds them

I was impartial to the yumes vs fujos thing but if yumes like you get actually angry that people insinuate their self-inserts aren’t acting like you would because of your own disgust, I have no words, homophobe-chan.

>>274864
I seriously don’t self insert in every relationship and ship, you’re freaking weird. Just ask around, people don’t do that, not even subconsciously.

You're asking for "everyone to just please be friends" accuse of samefagging and spit poison at everyone who disagrees with you and so much as explains their point of view? And people looking at the setting from their personal perspective isn't the same as "self inserting", at least not on the level as people literally projecting into the characters of the story. If you don't want to keep digging the hole deeper and hate the infighting so much then stop replying to them. Or do you just hate it when people have a differing opinion?

>>274865
Based. This anon really saying "They're not necessarily lesbians because I'm actually close with my female friends too and I'm not a lesbian!" with no self awareness. Does she think that lesbians don't love and care for each other or something?

Probably, either she's completely retarded in her way of communicating or just genuinely thinks lesbians are gross. She did say she was "disgusted" at people calling Guizhong and Ping lovers so I don't know how else to interpret it. If it was a male and a female characters I doubt she would've been "disgusted" if people interpreted them calling each other soulmates and literally losing their will to go on after the other dies as them being lovers.

For real though I know not all yumes and husbandofags are like this but some of them really need to get their heads out of their asses and realize that they aren't the victims just because someone doesn't like your straight ship or self-insert oc. It's not that serious.

>making fanfics
Maybe my esl was more dominant but I don't think so, I think the main points were clear. The "disgusted" feeling I get is when my platonic relationships are considered sexual. Wouldn't you feel the same way? Part of the psyche thing I mentioned for the fictional character part, taking it to I can't see lesbians/gays taking care of each other H O W I literally said if you're Lesbian good on you and I respected that by saying they /could/ not they /are/.
>you're Guili
>you're homophobe
>you're everything negative if you don't parrot what I say
And nothing will change your mind because you made it up to continue with your narrative and feel good.
If I were a homophobe you know my attitude would be different and I'd be more antagonistic and passive-aggressive and you know how they act, in fact some even stop replying.
>>274868
I'd be flattered tbh


And just to be clear, I'm no yume nor heteroshipper, no offense to either of course.
If you lot want to keep talking about this to me then this is where I stop, I passed the quota of trying to stop the potential thread shitting into being the reason of the thread going off topic 2 posts ago.

fellow esl here. I think I get what you're trying to convey??? There are some ships that individuals will inherently dislike and feel disgust towards. I have plenty of GL, BL, and het ships that I dislike and prefer as just friends for various reasons including due to real life experiences and dynamics. And when I see it and I see obnoxious fans loudly declaring it as canon, particularly in a fandom like genshin where the company likes to bait everyone for maximum $$$, it annoys me even though I know it's an unreasonable feeling.

I don't think anything is indicative of -phobia unless it's a trend. Do you only feel disgust towards GL? Only BL? Then yeah, that's pretty homophobic. But if you only feel disgust towards certain ships that remind you of specific dynamics in your real life, I don't think it's necessarily indicative of homophobia. Again, unless it's a trend and all the ships you dislike are yuri…

Twitter shippers absolutely have a tendency to yell -phobia at anyone who doesn't like a particular ship w/o considering whether or not someone just doesn't like the specific dynamic of that one pair. lol even the yumes and straight shippers sometimes yell "heterophobia" at people who don't like their pair.

But anyway. Obnoxious shippers loudly declaring their thing as canon has been a thing since forever in every fandom for every type of dynamic. As much as they can annoy me, they're still 100x more tolerable than the newfangled breed of fans who declare that a character must be trans and yell transphobia if you don't agree.

I thought so to! Like she would smirk but definitely not blush like that. I also think her chest is drawn weirdly, maybe it's the shadows or something but it looks so different in other official art and games.

I'm guessing for White Day we'll get a representative for three regions again. I'm thinking Baizhu for Liyue to promote him (that's around when his banner will be coming up, right?), Ayato for Inazuma since we got Thoma already and Itto isn't the traditionally 'handsome' type, and Alhaitham or Cyno for Sumeru.

There was no Mondstadt amongst the Valentine's ladies this year so it wouldn't surprise me if they don't choose a Mondstadt rep for the guys either. I think it'd be unusual to use a not yet released character as well. They also seem to only choose tall man/lady model characters. So my guesses are Zhongli, Ayato, and Alhaitham.

I'm thinking Cyno because Alhaitham was stirring up those Chinese shippers online and Cyno had great sales worldwide, but maybe they'll pick Alhaitham to try to calm those people down.

Mihoyo has announced they’re re-recording Tighnari’s existing in-game lines. Let’s hope he can never find work again and dies from starvation

I don’t think so. As for the new recording the voice direction will probably stay the same vibe and pitch. But I don’t think they’ll ask the new va to emulate the autistic lisp.
Anyways this probably means that Tighnari will be muted in 3.5, I think he was in some event there.

these designs remind me of the male characters with positions deserving of respect. how come professional men can dress properly with only a couple being designed for fan service while all professional women are designed as coomer bait with either body tight suits or easily visible diapers… jeans design wasnt 100% proper but it was suitable for her position nonetheless. just the right amount of fantasy elements and believable work uniform imo. how did we go from her to yelan? or eula? i feel like i cant even take them seriously when they walk around their cities and talk to npcs. especially yelan, she looks like a jojo character and you have to wonder who's the secret agent/stand user.

Checked in on reddit and the disappointment from everyone is immeasurable. Interesting that both men and women hate this. Women think it looks cheap, males think it looks dumb and the fully clothed looked hotter. I think mihoyo doesn't know how to make a design sell well to males aside from "show skin" and not even the target audience likes it because good design can be much more appealing (even to scrotes) than just some ugly clubbing clothes.

Less than a week for Baizhu and Kaveh drip marketing (and beta leaks)! What are your hopes for Baizhu? No redesign or new design? Shileder or healer? I’d love for him to keep the crop top and purple color palette but with new pants!

Alhaitham is not naked in any way. He doesn’t show skin at all like Shenhe. He’s wrapped in so much fabric. Idk if you have him but his model doesn’t register as naked in any way, it’s the opposite, there’s so much fabric on him.

>>277720
samefag let me explain a bit more before i get banned again. childe and heizou have designs that fit their personalities and jobs and the little bit of skin showing is an extra that fits their design and doesnt look coomerish. alhaitham has no reason to walk around in a body tight suit. if he wore this to work he would suffocate, so the only explanation is magic fabric which i hate. gorou and itto, i think their designs fit their personalities i just think theyre ugly but as long as not all males are naked idc about them either

For real, I used to love Childe and now I have a hard time liking him because of his insufferable fanbase full of deranged Luminefags who can't shut the fuck up about how much they hate every other male character but him because they're too ugly/slutty/gay/whatever to them.

So I’m confused, do you want slutty designs for males or no because that’s what you said in your original post. Also his design is not even that slutty, god forbid a male character shows some abs call me when they have designs like in nu carnival

No. 277744

>>277720
You said they don't know what appeals to women or sth but I love his design and I'm a woman and I'm not alone at all, he's been received overwhelmingly positively. Idk why you think women wouldn't like to see muscles on a guy with a very pretty face. I vastly prefer him to Kaveh because he's too feminine for me (but he's cute too).

While having muscles visible, he doesn't feel naked like Shenhe because Shenhe actually does have see-through windows all over her body. His model has muscly torso but he's wrapped in so much fabric he feels like a mummy when you move around with him. If you have him you know what I'm talking about. If he was more slutty I'd have nothing against it though as long as he still looks as cool as he does now.

someone who thinks childe is peak design obviously has a thing for thin twinky lanklets with basically no muscle, that's why alhaitham looks "off" and "coomerish" to them, because he has a bigger build and actual abs but don't speak for all the women, many of us like hot twinks with a bit more muscle (not bara)

I usually like leaner men but Childe is so bland to me. Kind of cringy personality, no shapes at all (compare him to Kaeya who isn't very muscley but still has a nice silhouette) and he looks like he's wearing some grey pajama. The clothes especially are so ugly to me. Yeah you have a bit of a visible belly but it's not that good.

Both Childe and Thoma have a very boyfriend experience feel to their designs, it's like they're made to look inoffensive and bland for the extremely obsessive kind of husbandofags to project whatever they want into them. Also as a disclaimer I actually like Childe's character but it's obvious what they were going for with both him and Thoma when designing them. They almost look identical too.

Yes, thank you! So glad to see nonas in the thread who think his design is boring. His grey uniform looks like communist state certified pajamas and I don't get it.

the asymmetry is one of the worst elements of tighnari's already shit tier design. people worked months to develop stockholm syndrome for him, you know. back to baizhu, your crooked waist sash skirt hybrid doesn't make sense (and if you wanted one so badly you could've moved his existing sash to the front), the grell glasses were fine, and the shoe length in the new official design is better relative to the length and cut of his pants which you made look even more like sloppy joggers.

ive built both and have 5* weapons on them. for heal only, kuki is better since she doesnt need any ER which means you can stack HP% as you wish and has almost 100% uptime. but dori has the energy providing aspect, both with her burst filling up energy to the active character and from the bunch of particles with her skill (if you have another electro in the team). you cant move dori's burst while kuki's skill moves with you. though, i have noblesse on dori and tenacity on kuki, and ER weapon on dori and hp weapon on kuki, so my kuki heals more than average im assuming. my general advice would be to build dori if you need noblesse support + energy especially for electro and kuki if tenacity is better for the team (kuki skill uptime helps tenacity have effect almost always too) or if you just need simple constant healing

she doesnt even have a big chest. She dresses how any fantasy character dresses. Yes its designed to be liked by moids but it's nowhere near the intolerable.

>nothing wrong with women self inserting on a pretty woman whose design has way more thought behind it than body tight suit to pass the censorship
it's always a tiny smol baby faced girl with a curvy body right?? say i'm baiting all you want but i'm sick of seeing female protagonist have the same exact body type again and again

you can clearly only be the protagonist and reverse harem leader if you have a big rack and/or petite body under 5'3 that surely is very fair to all women

Lumine’s body type isn’t unrealistic or rare, no offense but you sound very fat and like you have a lot of baggage about it. Go back to tumblr if you wanna see fat ugly disabled female full-coverage hijabi designs.

Are you going to complain about not having overweight characters next? You dont even see the mc for most of the game. These mcs are not fully self inserts, they're just the main characters and we get to control them the way we control any other character. Dont like it? Dont play. There are tons of games out there that let you customise your character how you like. Not every game has to be "fair" to every single body type out there

i'm a skinny tall woman not a fatty, don't make assumptions about me. it's a fact that in these types of games the female mc is always the tiny cute girl meant to be paired with ikemen, not someone who is medium sized and who looks more average… like you know the average player. lumine is not average, tell me how many women under 5'2 you see with a perfect soft hourglass body and angelic look outside of e-girls with filtered body. you know there was no point for her to have her cleavage out, also many of you complain when mihoyo forces characters like jean to show their armpits, but it's suddenly o-kay when lumine does the same in her idle. according to you every female character looks coomerish but don't dare criticize lumine's design. look at star rail's mc for comparison, and tell me which one looks more coomerish

this is such a stupid argument even in otome games. If it was a tall woman, short women would end up complaining. If you see short women with pretty bodies in dresses as coomerish thats on you.
>looks more average
Who wants to look at average or ugly characters instead of pretty ones? All characters are way prettier than average, that's why they all have the same face with just different eyes. If youre insecure about being average, you should focus on yourself instead of taking it out on random games that are not even dating games btw lol

>under 5'2"
Lumine does not have a canon height. You seem particularly sore about this topic for whatever reason.
>jean
It's stupid that Jean shows her armpits because it looks like she's wearing a dress shirt then suddenly shows off random armpits. It doesn't make sense with the rest of the design. Lumine's wearing a sleeveless dress. Those situations aren't comparable.
>star rail's mc
Neither look coomerish.
>>279152
See the point about Jean. It's stupid that a god is walking around with her underwear out, that's why it's ridiculous and coomerish. Lumine has bloomers on for god's sake.

Kek right. I don't actually hate Lumine but her design is just fucking boring. A pretty girl with a pretty flowery dress. In comparison Aether is more unusual because he wears a crop top despite being a male.
But yeah self inserting is always cringy as fuck, imagine being so narcissistic that you can self-insert into a super pretty petite mary sue that everyone loves.

I agree that Lumine's design is coomer tier because she has pretty sizable breasts for her frame and her chest and armpits are out on display, I wish female protagonists were more androgynous like Aether is instead of just wide eyed soft princesses with a pronounced cleavage. I know that Lumine is popular with self-inserters specifically for the reason that it's their power fantasy to be like she is and desired after every ikemen in the game but they better not complain about everyone else preferring Aether and accuse them of """misogyny""". Even the Star Rail female protagonist looks better.

No. 279184

And here I was thinking I was weird because I didn't like that Lumine's dress was white. It just gives weird purity vibes a la Luna from FFXV, and it just rubs me the wrong way. I saw a colorswap between her and Aether once and it'd be so cool if it was an option in game. It's a weird little thing that bugs me, but on the plus side I love that she has short hair.

No. 279188

It bothers me because Aether looks like an undercover traveler but Lumine looks like a princess, I know it's because of the lore and Aether being the canon protagonist but it's still distracting. She would honestly look much better with Aether's color scheme and with a real top, the weird purity vibe is spot on.

You're so right about Aether actually looking like a foreign traveler and Lumine looking like a princess. She's supposed to be a realm hopping traveler like her twin, but she's mucking around this foreign terrain in a crisp white dress and heels. The two look like they're not even from the same place despite traveling side by side for who knows how long. I can't unsee the pure white, virginal dress trend certain female characters are assigned and I hate it.
