I can't possibly be the only one currently hooked on this game, especially as it's a F2P. Don't let the F2P (or the anime girls) put you off, free to have a go and a cracking game IMO. The F2P element initially really put me off, since I like to buy a game and play it until I get bored of it, but seems like that works very well for F2P in this game - i.e. if you're a completionist then this is not the game for you because you just won't (or you'll end up homeless). So far I'm dozens of hours in and really enjoying it, and only using free pulls I get through gameplay. I think it's actually a better game for it due to the sheer awesomeness of getting a 5* item/char if I were to get one (the drop rates are shockingly low), instead of spending real money on real disappointment doing it the other way. Tempting to write it off as a BOTW knock off, and there's absolutely heavy inspiration in the art style, enemy set and some of the mechanics, but the combat mechanics are far more complex (and IMO better) in Genshin and it feels like a totally different game. There's immense satisfaction in a fight well fought and stacking elements for stupid damage, especially when you're not playing with "the best" characters and doing F2P. Anyone having a go just be aware that you have to play in a certain way to maximise fun unless you want to spend a fortune - resources are absolutely finite (or rather, behind a pay/grind wall), and you don't necessarily realise this until later on, by which time if you've burned through them, it's too late. I was dubious about the F2P element so did my research to make sure it wasn't going to throw up a paywall just around the time I really started to enjoy it, and this is a key part of not making that happen. It means you have to be smart about the team you pick, how you level them, focus on specialists and combos, because if you try to max everyone's stats you end up with a whole team of mediocre characters and have to pay/grind your way out of it. Any of the characters can be excellent, and it's down to you to decide which ones you want to use and suit your playstyle, and it makes the game all the better. And there's no PvP, just co-op or solo - so you don't need to compete against people who have spent £5000 on stuff. Anyone else currently playing?
