Wao Kokomi's new artifact set does wonders for her.
How to create a problem, sell it AND then sell a solution for it xD

Poor MiHo lol

What?

Neat, finally can change the soundtrack in our Teapot.
I just use their ultra generous anniversary present for that ;D

Azur Lane is dead. That was just sad to watch. Bah.

That's the only art that catched my attention from the whole collab:




Compare it to the old skins they have:

2 of those racing skins just came out like 2 weeks ago though. No way was the Gridman IP going to allow them to megaslut their characters for a collab.

Yeah... still, this new collab is eh worthy. 1 of the new skins isn't that great too.

No way was the Gridman IP going to allow them to megaslut their characters for a collab.
Then why even bother. Just rerun the DoA lol

I don't know man, this new Azur Lane direction is sus AND sad as F. Unlike GI, AL has nothing except its designs.

And speaking about the censorship: I wanted to see the like/dislike ratio on that yt collab video. Nope. Cannot be done anymore. Oh, what a glorious idea to just close your eyes and pretend that nothing bad happens. Damn Google...

People already took care of Rikka in that regard on debut of the anime. But companies like Tsuburaya (Ultraman) or Toei (Kamen Rider/Sentai) would never allow it otherwise and TRIGGER has no real say in it. Personally, I think they did a decent enough job and we got a nice animated PV.

I just can't get over how shitty of a character Rikka ended up being in Gridman. I actually hated about 90% of that series. She acted like an absolute fool for most of the show. I wish Trigger just stuck to compilations of action scenes. Their stories have been pretty miss for me other than BNA or KLK, and even KLK got "Trigger stupid" at the end. They sure can animate though.

Anyways, in other news, 7 of the biggest "leakers" for Genshin are now being sued by MHY, for damages around $78,000.00 US. Curious to see how this goes. I like the excitement of getting leaks, but I also don't have much sympathy for the leakers since they choose to be recognized for it instead of staying anonymous. Probably monetary gain in there too somewhere down the line.

If they weren't annoying clout chasers, I would feel a little bad, but since they are then tough luck and should own up to the consequences.

BTW so here's my pull result: 83 pity to get Albedo, kinda happy I got him in 50/50. As for 4* got 7 Noëlle and weapons, no rosalia (that I didn't have) and no Bennett 😂.

So I wanted C1 Bennett so I did 20 more in eula banner (Y'know just in case) and I got Rosalia (finally she sound cool) and a weapon. Then I was like fuck it and then just got Benny chan via the asteries shop haha, Bennett C1 sounds clean. Now sitting with 60 wishes and waiting for the Z.

How about you guys? Are you future plans? :)

Finally max'd Ganyu. Feels good given I don't have time to always play daily. Now I just need bosses to drop better substats.

0 primogems because GI loves to eat my wishes with hard pity pulls.


Plans? Grinding. Then maybe Yae. Other than that GI has no interesting heroes on the horizon.
Yae sounds really great, while I can't speak fun and gameplay wise about her but outside shes my fav female with Beidou in the game so far. I feel like if there's no leaks about Z coming soon during her banner I may try to pull her!!

I was also planning to pull Xiao but I'm not sure anymore, I'm worry that I'll get tired fast about his gameplay style "jump,attaque,jump,attaque,...", But idk lol

Ah, the infamous plumper attack...



Yeah, this is exactly why I didn't pulled for him.

He's a very cool hero, but his gameplay is just too damn annoying. I got tired of it in his trial, so I can't imagine doing it for 100s of hours.


Get me UR Honoka



That would be 500$ please.

Speaking of rare heroes. I have not 1, but 2 Shinano lol

You don't need to. Xiao is one of my favorite and I use this trick just in Abyss for evade some attacks. Dungeons and world I prefer to stay solo while ultimate burst. Besides, you can't use most of syernegy skills while jumping, like Chongyu frost area elemental skill cooldown reduction or Xingu elemental burst.

If you're thinking of using Xiao in co-op you should probably skip him. My friend played Xiao for a while, and when we did multiplayer my screen would shake violently every time he did the plunging attack . No way to turn it off, absolutely horrendous experience. Got some real headaches, and the game got virtually unplayable. Now his Xiao is benched. Good riddance.

Xiao is absurd offensive, so I would expect him not particulary well with co-op. For solo players, he is a good pick.

To be honest, I don't recommend picking soloQ strong chars for co-op, unless you're co-oping with a stranger. If you usually co-op with a friend or family member, I would stick with support/mix chars. The rest of anemo chars works quite welll in co-op, even the traveler.

I almost always pick either Jean or Zhongli for Co-op, just because either one of them cover a lot for bad party members. If we have a Bennett or another healer character, I'll use my Tart usually. Now I'd probably pick my pimped out Eula though. Haven't done co-op in a hot minute.

C6 Eula + C6 Tart and both have a signature weapons. Plus God knows how many more 5☆ weapons.

Increase your damn WL.

You're wasting your time farming on lower level worlds.



A shame. A real shame... such a waste of a nice art. On par with YMY. Sometimes I don't get the GI team. Ok. Most of the times I don't get em.

They waste so many great heroes on useless kits/boring roles. Sometimes I think that they're afraid of being "too cool" or "too edgy".

Toyota of gaming lol

Honkai on the other hand is their lexus(design wise).



Speaking of Honkai, some say that we should expect a collab with it in GI.

(No leaks, just a discussions)

I really don't know how to feel about it. It's definitely something I want to see, but I don't really want to setup myself for a disappointment hah

After 1.5 years you would think that GI is mature enough to survive a couple of wacky collabs, but so far we got nothing.
All their "collabs" were just a C tier product placements which added absolutely nothing of value.

And Honkai heroes are so over the top that almost any Honkai hero will be be seen as a way cooler option than most of the GI cast. On another hand, releasing a watered-down version of their own heroes is also in MiHo's interests... So yeah, I don't know how to feel about the 3rd collab.

Nothing against Xiao, but If I play with my brother I wouldn't use him. Bennett is by far the best choise I hear over the game. I hear that people use the profile to find Jean users.

Catalyst in general works fine with co-op.

It's interesting seeing how they handled a Genshin -> Honkai collab. They basically made it a non-canon story where one of the characters worked with another to make a videogame based out of a fantasy IP, then tried to sell it to the 2nd character. So Genshin characters (Fischl and Keq) were basically just characters in a video game (technically 3 different video games since the story had the event change throughout). I don't think that type of thing is possible in Genshin unless they introduce Alice first and have her be the MacGuffin.

I would love to see some of the Honkai girls in Genshin proper, but i'd be ok if we just never got any more character collabs too. Aloy was shit and did nothing for the game. They couldn't even be assed to give her an intro. That was their chance to open a gateway or something to other worlds to allow for future collabs, but they ignored it and just said "here's your mail with a woman inside it". Most games work with collabs because the world lore is super loose and usually not well defined. Compare it to Genshin, who has better worldbuilding and lore than 90% of AAA games, it just doesn't fit well. It's not that I don't think they CAN do it and do it believably, but I don't think they'd bother at this point with stuff like the Raiden banner making mega bucks on its own.

Not happening, Honkai gameplay isn't compatible with genshin or vice versa; keqing and fischl were changed in honkai to fit the gameplay, making them far crazier and flashier than anything in genshin.
If there's going to be a honkai collab, the characters are going to be as slow and restrained as everyone else in the genshin cast.

Yeah, basically my way of thinking too. Just missed the "NOT" before "in MiHo's" lmao And that's exactly why I can't get too excited about 3rd collabs.

For such collabs to work GI should unlock a 6☆ heroes with some kind of a space magic abilities and elements like "Light" "Darkness" etc.


*edit*

Islands look cool. I hope it's not a part of the event and they will stay in game permanently. Also, please no stupid freezing/drowning/electric dmg areas. Let us fucking explore.

[WOLF VS ELECTRIC CAT]

Yeah, but again, Bennett and Sara. And food. Nothing new, really. I can do the same with my Raiden without climbing on a stupid pillar haha It's just for show. You and your C6 EULA should evaporate him instantly too

BTW finally pulled Rosaria in 1 pull. My quest for her is complete.

On another hand, banners continue to feast on my wishes. 50 wishes between Hu Tao and EULA banners, still no 5☆, still on 50/50 since C3 for Raiden. That's... fucking brutal considering the fact how expensive C3 was too lol

Farming for Crimson Witch sucks.
Make yourself comfortable. Hat for my Klee took me 6 months. My friend still farming for Hu Tao hat. Since the OG banner xD

  1. Eula
  2. Hu Tao
  3. Tart
1 and 2 were a given, I didn't expect Tart to get 3rd place though.
