The Chinese audience is voting to cancel Genshin Impact.

Fandom in China is dissatisfied with the Lantern Rite prizes.

Genshin Impact fans in China are dissatisfied with the recently revealed Chinese New Year prizes in version 4.4. The administrators disclosed that they will only give out three Intertwined Fates at this year’s Lantern Rite Festival, which has offended many players around the country. Fans have also unfollowed the game’s official social media accounts, as well as other brands that have collaborated on the title, such as KFC and Pizza Hut.
The impending version 4.4 update will commemorate the fourth Lantern Rite Festival, a Chinese New Year-themed event, and Genshin Impact authorities have announced three Intertwined fates as well as other common gifts. However, fans in China are dissatisfied because they believe it is insufficient, and the awards have not altered despite the game being active for more than three years.
As a result, fans on BiliBili have reviewed Genshin Impact with more one-star ratings than five-star reviews. A similar situation occurred previously, when HoYoverse released only 10 Intertwined Fates awards on the game’s first anniversary.

Genshin Impact loses social media followers because supporters are unsatisfied with the Chinese New Year gifts.

Fans in China didn’t stop with merely review bombing. The community has also unfollowed the game’s official Douyin account en masse, resulting in a loss of over a million followers within a day, from 9.6 million to little more than eight million. The Chinese community has also accused HoYoverse of prioritizing global servers and providing better rewards to global users.

This has resulted in a large unfollowing of the game on various social media platforms, including Weibo and BiliBili.
Over the last two days, other popular Mihoyo-made titles such as Honkai Star Rail and Honkai Impact 3rd have also been dragged into the controversy as “benchmarks of generous celebratory rewards”. As the situation worsens, supporters are still waiting for an official reaction from Hoyoverse to resolve the matter, and they are hoping for one soon.
