    Its a mmo without all the things that make mmos content. All content is driven by maximizing their ability to get you to give them more money. What a piece of shit genre.

    Because so many good designs of cute girls get wasted on a glorified one-armed bandit simulators.
    Gacha is truly games where the only winning move is not to play.

  3. people downplaying genshin so hard itt but the sad reality is that only a few decent games were released on 2020-21.
    genshin may have his problems as a "content" game but for casual gameplay, you know, like any other normal game, is pretty decent.

    • I wouldn’t exactly call it decent, at least not yet.
      The game feels incomplete, which to be fair is because it is, but if you’re gonna release a demo and call it a full game then don’t be surprised if people shit on it.

        How so? All the content is just recycled stuff, both puzzles and events. The events themselves are timegated and if you want to as use a newly obtained character, you have to invest weeks for leveling, uncap, talent materials, and of course, artifacts
        Even if you want to look at it from the angle of "story-driven exploration game", again, the content is recycled all the time and writing has hit rock bottom in first chapter already

        >How so? All the content is just recycled stuff, both puzzles and events
        thats why is casual
        >The events themselves are timegated
        and you are not forced to play them dailly, you can play them once they are over or whenever you feel like, either way you can complete them for primos only
        > if you want to as use a newly obtained character, you have to invest weeks for leveling, uncap, talent materials, and of course, artifacts
        This is a problem only at the start where you have to build a lot of character, even then the game doesn’t allow you to build characters properly (artifacts) until 40/45. before that artifacts and builds are hardly a requirement.

        Im not saying is a great game, i said is just decent, 6/10 game at best, its main point is that its pretty casual and is not sweaty even at the end game. you can say that is a bad thing but depends on who you ask.

          you are if you want to have primogems to roll characters, since outside of dailies you barely get any, more so if you actually spent money on welkin. And the rates are god-awful couple with coinflips
          >This is a problem only at the start
          a straight up lie because it applies all the way through and you have to actively grind to get said materials, you cant get them any other way(the talent books you get from events arent enough for even one level up) and you will never have an excess
          >i said is just decent, 6/10 game at best
          more like a 4/10

          • >a straight up lie
            since i build my characters properly (like 3-4 months ago) i ALWAYS have 400+ EXP books, 10m Mora and sometimes talent books dont take too much time for the excess from events.
            After a certain point resources are not that important because you get them at a rate faster than you get a character.

          • >exp books and mora
            Alright, now try getting a character to talent level 9 in at least one skill with those. And dont forget those boss materials

          • >now try getting a character to talent level 9
            talent level past level 8 isnt needed and is actually not optimal specially at earlier levels when you can use those resources to level up another character which brings you better damage overall
            >And dont forget those boss materials
            you can either prefarm or waste 7+ fragile moons at worst, its only "bad" when you have to farm an artifact set that is new but is not like you can’t use other set while you farm for that.

        • >most games are incomplete, specially games that are online services.
          No they’re not, most games that get continued updates at least launch with a fully complete campaign that you could get away with calling a full game.

  4. I hate to get tribalistic in a thread like this, but of all the gacha games that have ever been shilled here, I’ve only seen Genshin shills post actual gameplay of their game instead of just endlessly posting coombait
    It’s 2021 and I still have no idea what Azur Lane is about

  5. because you have to do something repetitive to progress/get what you want that has nothing to do with the game, and the only thing stopping you from doing it more is also something that has nothing to do with the game

    • Uh, what? Playing the game is how you earn currency in most gachas for the pulls. How is playing the game.. nothing to do with the game? Ya sound like a fucking idiot.

        gatekept by time, otherwise irl wouldn’t exist since you could just ‘play’ and get enough in a reasonable ammount of time and it would no longer be called gacha

        it’s not the primary method, paying irl is

  6. shill me a gacha game, gachabros. I played DBZ Dokkan and Naruto Blazing a few years ago. The only one I play currently is Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links

  7. PGR is the only good gacha game I’ve ever played (genshin’s endgame is dogshit) but it still would be better if it wasn’t a mobile game.

    I hate stamina. Just let me play.

  8. It’s a deceptive, exploitative, anti-consumer monetization practice that promotes the idea that its okay to be a garden gnome with game development.

  9. Majority of the ones I played are very similar. The daily missions dedicated for X resources, the way you upgrade characters, the chibi visuals, turned based auto combat, its all very samey. I also dont like when they have multiple gachas. I am okay with characters but when they add weapon gacha I tend to drop it right there.

  10. I’ve never seen a good gacha thread in my life. It’s always shitty pictures of generic waifus being posted, not even any porn.
