Genshin Impact, the free-to-play gacha game for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC and mobile, is celebrating its first anniversary and developer miHoYo have offered up a login bonus as part of an anniversary event. Players can get mora (one of the in-game currencies), upgrade materials and Intertwined Fate wishes (used to get new characters and weapons at random) provided that they log in seven times during the event period.

This has led to a significant uproar from the Genshin Impact community as they believe that miHoYo have been stingy with rewards. The community has since taken to review bombing both Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact, another free-to-play gacha game from miHoYo. Genshin Impact’s rating on the Play Store has dropped from 4.1 to 2.2, Honkai Impact’s rating hasn’t been effective as of yet but the game has gotten a number of negative reviews over the Genshin Impact anniversary rewards.

The Genshin Impact community are claiming that other gacha games have rewarded their fanbase with far better rewards during anniversary events and they’re not wrong. Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle and miHoYo’s Honkai Impact both offered significantly better rewards and both aren’t as brutal when it comes to the in-game economy. Genshin Impact’s drop rate for characters is low and 5-star characters are even lower so it’s understandable for fans to expect more from the anniversary event.

UPDATE: miHoYo are now silencing anything negative about the anniversary on both their own forums and various social platforms like Discord and Reddit. miHoYo has also disabled the ability to change in-game signatures.
