The players react

Redditors from the r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit have reacted to the news since miHoYo confirmed the launch of the new website:

There was a mixed response from the player base, with many stating that they will likely stick to their usual referral sites for information on Genshin.

A player wrote: “It’s basically the same as the fandom wiki with less functions and information bruh.”

Another player made an excellent Advantages and disadvantages list for others to consult before diving into the new site themselves:

Advantages

  • Stunning, beautiful user interface
  • It’s official

The inconvenients

  • It’s horribly slow compared to Fandom/Honey/KQM Library
  • No character disclosed
  • Barebones data so far, though that may change
  • Lots of data is unnecessarily collapsed by default, forcing you to click the expand button
  • Simultaneously, a lot of empty spaces force you to scroll a lot
  • No comment section (which is very useful on the Fandom wiki)
  • URLs are not intuitive. You cannot just type “Keqing” in the last bit of the URL to access Keqing’s page. On HoYo Wiki Keqing, the URL is simply “10”

Unfortunately, it seems that there is not much money for players to invest in this new system, but I hope the community and miHoYo can work more on it to create a brilliant resource for Genshin Impact!
