Players React

Redditors on the r/Genshin_Impact_Leaks subreddit have been reacting to the news since miHoYo confirmed the launch of the new website:

There has been a mixed response from the player base, with many stating that they will likely be staying with their usual go-to sites for Genshin information.

One gamer wrote: “It’s basically the same as the fandom wiki with less functions and info bruh.”

Another player laid out a great Pros and Cons list for others to check out before doing a deep dive on the new site themselves:


  • Looks great, beautiful UI
  • It’s official


  • It’s horrendously laggy compared to Fandom/Honey/KQM Library
  • No leaked characters
  • Barebones data so far, though this may change
  • Lots of data is pointlessly collapsed by default, forcing you to click the expand button
  • Simultaneously, lots of empty spaces force you to scroll a lot
  • No comment section (which is very useful on the Fandom wiki)
  • URLs aren’t intuitive. You can’t just type “Keqing” in the last bit of the URL to go to Keqing’s page. On HoYo Wiki Keqing URL is simply “10”

Unfortunately, it appears as though there isn’t a huge amount to get players invested in this new system, but hopefully, it can be worked on more by the community and miHoYo to create a brilliant resource for Genshin Impact!
