Misleading character design edition
>still no official release dateWhat did they mean by this?
They just announced a stream happening a week from now in the Discord.
honkai has become too much of a bloated mess for mei just want star rail to come out, which i will drop when zzz comes out
>>1147563Stream in a week, probably will announce a release date we already know.
Rerolling for Clara!
Rerolling for bailuooooh!
are the 4 star characters gonna be enough to clear content?what about weapon gacha? it seems characters come equipped with their "signature" weapon, so does that mean there's only character gacha?i think hoyo is moving away from separating characters and their signature weapons (it seems to be the same with zzz)feels generous, unlike hi3 and genshin
>>11482134 star units are pretty strong but you still need to pull most of them. Weapon banners are usually a bait, and they will probably switch to the double character banner system like in Genshin after a while
Is Sushang better than Dan?
i just hope that if this game gets costumes they dont do a genshin and only release 1 fucking reskinned costume per year at the price of 30 bucks
>>1148229I would say they are equal, Dan is better with buffers that can grant him Wind pen and debuffers who slow enemies so he can always get the ultimate additional trigger effect. Though he can work by himself, you will want to buff him. Also if he is hyper invested you can use him in content where there are no wind weak enemies and he will still be viable.Sushang on the other hand relies on enemies being weakness broken so you need to pair her with other damage dealers, specifically ones that the enemies are weak to.I didn't count eidolons but if we count that in Dan's 4th eidolon is busted and makes him a mini Seela.
>>1148263I don't want to use a fag
cant believe epic 7 is going to die next month
i want to use cute guys
>no fujo gf to autism over star rail withwhy live
i will only use shotas and hags
>>1148288there are no shotas
>>1148213>>1148226There's someone on Youtube who has been clearing high levels of Hall of Forgotten Memories with only 4* characters.Characters do "come with" their signature weapon, but that's purely cosmetic, as in Star Rail, Light Cones take the place that weapons do in Genshin. There is still a "weapon banner" in that you have to roll for a character's signature Light Cone.
>>1147992>>1148113They also announced that the last CBT will end around the same time, so it'll be about a month in-between the close of the CBT and the launch, assuming the April 26th release date is real.
>>1148289Yanqing and Arlan?
>>1148340they are just twinksthis is a shota
>>1148334honestly the light cone system sounds much better than having to put some weapon with design you dont like on the character
>>1148432Yeah it allows much more creativity to designers for character weapons and light cone artwork. As much as I like the visual aspect of the weapon of your choosing appear on your character, I think this is much healthier in the long run>>1148338They might release it earlier to keep the hype, though we'll just have to see the stream for any confirmations
>>1148425manlets are good enough for me, can't expect any better from mih*yo
>>1147557I kind of like some of the characters but also hate how sanitized the game is overall
no loli no play
So who is the smelly NEET of Star Rail? Silver Wolf or guruguru?
>>1149224Silver wolf easily
>>1149023Are they using the same potato models from gensh*n? I want actual lolis this time around. Well, not like they aren't censoring them to hell and back anyways.
Will Star rail also get a ""Genshin"" and Evangelion collab tho
what killed the hype?
>>1149228There's a new model, actual hebes this time.
I have insider information, first event will be hololive collab
>>1149228Hook and Bailu seem slightly taller than Klee and the others from Genshin. Clara is the one I'd definitely call an actual loli though since she resembles a popular loli, Illya.
>>1149228The potato models seem a little more worked out this time. Also as other anons mentioned there are also more traditional lolis in the game.
>>1149229The Genshin Collab wouldn't even really be a Collab since Star Rail is fundamentally about meeting characters from different universes, and Genshin is just another universe in the Honkai word. So the lore is already implemented for us to get Eula.
>>1149250people realizing it being a shithoyo game
>>1149370you're retarded and delusional but I guess that's a requirement to be a honkai player
>>1149370genshin would be the one getting the collab to bring attention to star rail
>>1149491Potato Clara in Genshin, please Mihoyo...
>>1149416I haven't even played Honkai, but this is literally what star rail's lore is all about, I don't see what's the problem with what I said.
So anyone that actually played the cbt? Does this have pvp, guilds etc?
>>1149710I've been in the last two betas. No PvP or Guilds. Also no co-op. The closest thing to co-op is being able to use one of another person's characters in certain content. Other than that, it's practically a single-player game.
>>1149712That actually sounds really good, i'll give it a try
>>1149716Let me know if you have any other questions.
>>1149717Ok another one if you don't mind, what are the rates, how does the pity work if any and how many daily chores are there roughly speaking.
>>1149718Rates and Pity are exactly the same as Genshin, 160 premium currently per pull, 0.6% of 5* outside of pity, soft pity at 75, hard pity at 90, and there is a 50/50.For dailies, you get one daily quest and five daily training objectives per day. Completing the daily quest is always one of the daily training objectives, and completing training objectives is what gives you your daily premium currency, along with other stuff like some credits. Other than the daily quest, the daily training objectives are typically stuff like "Defeat 20 enemies," "Break 5 breakable objects," or "Clear one Calyx" (To use another Genshin comparison, basically Genshin's Leylines).You only have to clear 3 or 4 of the daily training objectives, as some give double credit.On top of that, you also have Trailblazer Power, which is the same as Original Resin in Genshin, and serves as your "stamina" for getting rewards from Calyxs, bosses, etc. in order to power up your characters.
>Kill la Kill reference in Bronya's ultkek
Say something good about my wife
>>1149702News flash, that "lore" got retconned/thrown out already, otherwise you'd be seeing honkai(the monsters) in both genshit and shit rail. For confirmation, theres voicelines from Welts profile stating something along the lines of "oh I tought we'd be going up against the honkai but theres an even greater threat out here"
>>1148213>are the 4 star characters gonna be enough to clear content?Yes, but you still need to get them from the gacha.It's going to be pretty tough just the free characters:>MC>March 7th>Dan Heng>Serval>Herta>Qingque>what about weapon gacha? it seems characters come equipped with their "signature" weapon, so does that mean there's only character gacha?>i think hoyo is moving away from separating characters and their signature weapons (it seems to be the same with zzz)Light Cones took over the role of Weapons, they work similarly except LC also give HP and DEF instead of having a secondary stats, and can be equipped on other classes albeit with their effect negated.LCs also felt more generic so far, probably because of game design.Sign LCs usually fit the character more on top of having an art related to the character.
>>1149228Better but still kinda potato.Clara is more loli like though I'd say a bit tall, but I'm fine with that.There's basically 2 loli models if you can tolerate them not being really loli.
>>1149902Thank you, that's all I needed to know. I was excited since Honkai had some good lolis, but I guess that modern day Mihoyo is a different company now.
>>1149718>>1149720Just adding, the LC/weapon gacha uses the same guarantee system as characters instead of Genshin's EP or the lack of it previously.Made it way less painful in getting limited signs.Non-limited signs are also available in the shop, taking over the 4* weapons in Genshin.They cost 600 premium shop currency or the equivalent of a whooping 30 rolls (tix cost 20).The shop currency obtained from rolling is the same as Genshin, only multiplied by 4, so since the tix in the Genshin premium shop cost 5, in SR it cost 20.The only difference is that characters cost a little bit more, in Genshin they cost 34, but in SR they cost 140 (140 / 4 = 35).
>>1149904I personally think they're both pretty good.
>>1149910Hook is a really short woman or a loli?
>>1149936She's a child. You meet her on the second "map" where she is the leader of a "gang" of children.
>>1149938Based, I will now play your game
reminder that all the lolis in genshin are not actual children>qiqi is undead>klee is an elf>sayu is a womanlet>diona is the same as above but a furry>dori is the same as above>nahida is 200 years old god hag with a potato body>yaoyao is a no fucking idea because i stopped playing after nahidaimagine still playing genshin for the cunny lmao
Playing a turn-based RPG right now. Goddamn I hate this shit. Downloading Star Rail day 1
>>1150051>yaoyao is a real ch- whoops better deflectalso Klee is actually young despite being an elfI mean what the fuck did you expect, this is a BATTLING game, you can't just send your average JS to fight monsters
>>1150051what is this potato body meme, i dont get
>>1150084it means the whole body is all clumped up closely together, big torso, big head, short arms, short legslooks like a potato
>>1150084Final Fantasy and it's connected universes has a dwarf-like race that players took to calling potatos and since /v/ and offshoot boards are children that love spouting memes, a ton of people have taken to using that for every child character which spread everywhere. Sometimes in a joking manner, sometimes in a derogatory manner.Usually people who use it in a derogative manner or seethe about them are the manchildren tourists we picked up on the site that foam at the mouth whenever they see a female character that doesn't have gigantic tits or isn't as old as their grandma like >>1150051
Bros, we just have to accept that the era of loli is over... We should be glad hoyo is even making lolis in the first place when anyone smaller than them would be cancelled in the first week. Anyways, the confidential beta program is about to start, maybe we will start to see some actual quality posts about the game here.
>>1150051Diona is actually a kid
>>1150051Genshin "lolis" are off putting because they all share the same model
>>1150115Thats a whole lot of autism in defense of badly designed characters
>>1150172NTA but I love Genshin's potatoes. I have no idea what you guys are so particular about.
i hope they show some new charactersi will be playing with whatever they give for free and save rolls for the eventual fu hua releasei hope she will still use her fists/gauntlets and is just as much fun to play as she is in hi3
btw, does this game have a "constellation" system like we have in genshin? what happens if we roll for a copy of a character?
>>1150198Same system as genshin, 6 copies to fully constellate a character with two levels being level boosts, other copies give a large amount of starglitter/stardustwhatever equivalent of star rail
>>1150195It looks like shit, you have shit taste, end of story.
>>1150204They look super cute. You are just a hebefag in denial.
>>1150210there goes that word you autistic genshit fans love to use to describe anything that isnt a adult woman
>>1150211I don't about other Genshin fans but for me hebe is a petite girl with small or no breasts.
hebe has a really fucking simple definition, "currently undergoing puberty"people get too retarded about it for some reason
>>1150227>"currently undergoing puberty"Which doesnt fit 90% of the characters genshitters try to attach the term to, thats my problem with it. But then again, I'm expecting genshin fans out of all people to use their brains
>>1150232exactly, they're among the people getting retarded
>>1150214> hebe is a petite girl with small or no breasts.Adult women can be short and flat
Just finished the d4 beta, was worried it would take me away but there is nothing to worry about it was shit. Now I just want this to come out quick so I can have something new to play.
>>1148124I want to but I am afraid I am bricking myself if I don't get bronya.
>>1150282>anything by modern-day BlizzardIt was a foregone conclusion that it would be shit.
>>1148678>ate how sanitized the game is overallThat's just china from now on, until someone can topple the ccp or they crumble internally we'll never get anything fun out of china again.
>>1150287Go play american games instead? You keep complaining yet here you are begging the chinks for crumbs.
>>1150293Why would I choose a football field of shit over a plate of shit? At least gacha games still have crumbs of fanservice. Imagine shilling western games on a gacha general, where the fuck do you think you are?
>>1150306I'm not shilling anything, I'm calling out how retarded you are stalking the thread of a chinese game while complaining about chinese censorship. There are a truckload of gacha games with not only tits and ass, but porn as well, yet here you are wasting your time.
>>1150311>noooooo you can't criticize my game in any way it's perrrrrfect shut the fuck up reeeeeeeetouch grass chud
>>1150314>moving goalpostsMy bad bothering to reply to brazilian shitposters.
>>1150316Get used to it, it's like this on every mihoyo related thread on 4chan. There are so many edgy ESL kids that think they're cool for shitting on whatever the company makes and it pretty much makes any discussion outside of /gig/ impossible.The /vg/ general for this will probably be usable too mostly because clowns like that will simply be drowned in a flood of shitposting and nobody will pay attention to how much they hate mihoyo/genshin/honkai/star rail and hunt down every single thread about it across the entirety of 4chan.
>>1150325no one asked for your life story about how much you love sucking mihoyo cock
>>1150287>That's just chinaZenless and Millennium Journey ELF looks fine.
>>1150198SR is basically Genshin if it's Turn Based and has no open world, also a bunch of nice QoL.
>>1150282>paid 70$ to join """open beta"""Shouldve waited until 25thBut the game is trash, cant wait until star rail saves me from the gaming slump
>>1150286Oh the irony of you saying that in a thread for another hoyo shovelware
is there a datamine of the voices from the beta?
>>1150372Zenless is already getting sanitized too. Never heard of Journey ELF but looks cool.
So this is basically a single player turn based gacha game? I don't really get the appeal of single player gachas. Isn't the point of gachas to show off your stuff to other players? Why is mihoyo so afraid of making a coop game?
>>1150584>no coop of any kind>no guilds>roughly all the same systems and features as genshin except the actual combat is now turn basedYou're playing this either for the Honkai appeal or the turn-based gameplay
>>1150584There is no open world so I don't think they bothered with coop. There was a """coop""" event where you and your friends try to take down a boss with limited tries like a similar event in HI3, but other than that and renting your character for certain content, there is no coop. Hopefully they add a permanent coop game mode after launch
>>1150590Turn-based gameplay here because that's almost the only kind of game I play at all period regardless of platform.
Sorry rerollbros, I don't allow you to reroll for my wife
>>1150584>Why is mihoyo so afraid of making a coop game?Their audience literally does not want coop. Look at genshit threads whenever theres a coop event, all they do is bitch and moan about it and do it solo anywya>>1150590>either for the Honkai appeal or the turn-based gameplayShit rail has neither
>>1150584Why the fuck would I want to interact with retarded mihoyo subhuman simps in any way, shape or form while playing a game?The more single-player it is, the better. No shitters in co-op griefing you, no PVP autism, no guilds with discordtrannies.
>>1150325>makes any discussion outside of /gig/ impossible Not like discussion inside of /gig/ is impossible either, that place is a shithole, and not even a fun one.
I have been practicing my rerolling autism for this game. Have been rerolling for Granblue for about 4 days and still going strong. Anyone going in Star Rail with what they get is doing a huge disservice to themselves, especially in this game.
>>1150638>no PVP autismFor now. I can't think of a single gacha that uses this same gameplay that doesnt have pvp as well
>>1150584We had a bunch of coop events when Genshin started but they became few and far between. Most likely the social anxiety nips complained about them. Chinks seems to love pvp and rankings.
>>1150652You mean turn based? One of the biggest grossing gacha doesn't have that. Or any kind of ingame ranking lists.. or anything about other people playing the game, really.I feel like the biggest mistake to make is not to commit. Like Tower of Fantasy that wanted to be everything at once. But either you are making it clear you are a multiplayer game first, everything else second, or you better don't rely on people communicating. Their weird 100 people guilds among other hands down retarded decisions when it comes to the multiplayer aspect definitely didn't help the game. It's like they want multiplayer and communication, but then not really.I feel like in the times of the internet, you are an idiot if you think you need to have ranking lists and pvp to have people whale for e-penis. Don't worry. That happens without you adding dumb game modes nobody really likes anyways. Do expect actual whale content in other forms though. The game I talked about that has no pvp and such most definitely has content where you need to whale, as you require dupes, and the right stuff.
>>1150676>You mean turn based?I mean this particular blend of autobattler, normal attack+2 skills, you know, epic7, 7knights, exos heroes, summoners war, artery gear. E7 in Particular was used a lot last thread as example of a game mihoyo was clearly "inspired by" for star rail
>>1150584>Turn-based game has PvP>It's just a race to inflict every status ailment on the opponent before they do the same to youFuck that
>>1150692nah, its a speed stat+critical damage competition>lmao my minmax whale character has 3 more speed than yours, I get to use my aoe nuke before you even get to buff up
>>1150645It's a lot more fun than threads like these because clowns like >>1150684>>1150638Either get made fun of until they break or ignored so it's honestly much better than the average dead threads scattered across the board because any random retard can decide they want to show everyone how cool they are and how much they hate Genshin/Honkai/Star Rail/MiHoYo/China by shitting up the thread until 404
>>1150696We are barely 100 posts in and you already got triggered by criticism?
>autist joins the threadwhy did he reply to me
>>1150584Because they are going to revolutionize turn based gameplay and destroy the japs in what they claim to do bestFGO EOS next year after this game curbstomps it calling it now
>>1150699Calling a retard a retard isn't being triggered. It's calling (You) what (You) are: a massive faggot>>1150761People have MiHoGod rent free in their minds because they are scared. They fear superior developers who will take over the market and grant us a new era of gaming standards
>>1150793the unironic shilling invalidates everything you'll ever say
>>1150791Bro, the nips literally don't give a fuck. They churn out low effort trash like no tomorrow and coombrains still drop their money as long as there are faps to be had.
>>1150791I highly doubt they're gonna take over japan with designs like these >>1150607 >>1149910 >>1149223Games like Blue Archive got popular purely because of its top tier coom designs, while on the other hand Star Rail characters seem like they got designed by a committee. Hoyoverse is about to realize that they can't repeat practices they did with Genshin in other games and hopefully they backpedal instead of doubling down, but I don't have faith in these fuckers.
>>1150833>that they can't repeat practices they did with Genshin in other gamesMy guy, calling star rail a genshin reskin would be a understatement, and its baked so deep into the game you can't fix it. With enough shilling they'll make Star Rail work anyway
>>1150847I'm talking about the character designs. Can't you read?
>>1150833>while on the other hand Star Rail characters seem like they got designed by a committeethey literally did, the CCP has to approve everything
>>1150584>Isn't the point of gachas to show off your stuff to other players?Gacha is all about gambling.You showing off what you have or your luck can be done anywhere, not just in-game, showing off your shit is easier in a social media like Twitter anyway.>Why is mihoyo so afraid of making a coop game?Because PvP and single player makes more money? And there's already plenty of PvP heavy/focused gacha, so doing a single player focused gacha makes more sense, especially since Genshin and FGP proven this true.
>>1150590>>no coop of any kindThere's a "coop" in the final beta.It's like a raid but very small in scope, kinda like GBF's.You scout an enemy, then you can either solo it or share it with friends/public, and people can help you but the enemy.
>>1150833Genshin characters got big despite being held by CCP.
>>1150891>the most popular are the release characters with some few exceptionsGenshin got big for other reasons. You don't see a new wave of fan art with every new female character that releases, just the big ones like Shogun or Nahida.
>>1150898>Genshin got big for other reasons.Nah, it got big because of several reasons including characters.>You don't see a new wave of fan art with every new female character that releases, just the big ones like Shogun or Nahida.The hell are you even talking about? Dehya got plenty of fanarts.Not all characters are a big hit but most of them still get decent amount of fanarts at least, and they're still getting it.
>>1150898Yelan, Nilou (as niche as she is), Dehya..
>>1150833>Hoyoverse is about to realize that they can't repeat practices they did with Genshin in other gamesBasically this, Genshin's success was a lighting in a bottle due to a lack of AAAish anime games on console, you can blame the west and the western pandering jp companies for that. I don't think that Star rail will be able to pull the genshin audience that it want to as Genshin is still fairly popular which leaves dedicated honkai fans and more niche circles that do care more about coom and star rail is a big step down from honkai in that regard. Honestly with both Zenless and Genshin pulling the omnipandering audiences they should have kept Honkai a bishoujo like it's predecessors. >>1150898As most with most gachas the characters tend to carry the game where as with Genshin it is the reverse, while the characters do get fanart, it also has a pretty non existent doujin presence.
>>1151055>that do care more about coom and star rail is a big step down from honkai in that regardHonkai itself is a step down in that regard. The designs have been going downhill for years now. You have the overdesigned "white blob" like Elysia, "just make a MGR reference" with HoO Mei, literally recycling a costume for a previous character and calling it a new character with HoF Kiana. I think HoS was the last good design they had>Honestly with both Zenless and Genshin pulling the omnipandering audiences they should have kept Honkai a bishoujo like it's predecessors.I'd say ZZZ is them trying to get the arknights audience, somehow I dont see that happening>>1151004>Yelanfemale+upscaled Xinqui>NilouAyaka palette swap>Dehyaupscaled XinyanThe problem with genshins designs is that they are so overdesigned yet generic you can just classify them as a copy of a existing character
>>1151055>it also has a pretty non existent doujin presence.Nips doesn't really draw Chinese stuff, but it's still doing pretty well.
>>1151068>I'd say ZZZ is them trying to get the arknights audience, somehow I dont see that happeningTD enjoyer? Different gameplay entirely.Somewhat dark main story? Doesn't seem the case.Lots of lore and backstory? Genshin also do that, SR is shaping up to be the same too.Furryshit? There's barely any furry in both game, ZZZ's is very prominent though.
>>1151072Approx 30% of genshin results are literally faggot shit>>1151074The character design mentality seems to "borrow" heavily from arknights, thats the feel I got from what little characters they showed. Literally the only noteworthy cast member is the pink haired mesugaki, by Bache's(AL) artist
>>1151072This hardly prove anything though, one doujin can get 5 different scans/uploads and another dozen different language translations to bloat the search number.
>>1151089both BA and GI have instances of reposts, but even after adding "-translated", BA still has more
>>1147557>turn based combatHard pass. Might as well just add fucking tank controls while you're at it.>>1151068No.
>>1151116add the brown Natlan loli and you'll be able to make a pokemon evolution line joke
I don't know about waifu designs but the gameplay designs for characters are pretty good, they're simple in a vacuum but combined with light cones artifacts and extra talents they can get pretty complex. Also I like that every standart banner 5* has good syngery with some 4* stars>Clara wants to be hit and March 7th shield gives her taunt while also shielding her>Bronya and Welt synergizes really well with Dan Heng to enable his wind res pen or ult multiplier>Gepard and Bailu synergize well with Arlan to keep him healthy or just under 60% HP, which is in my opinion a very underrated DPS character>Himeko is very good with Herta and other Pyro characters and in the future will be a staple in mono Pyro teams>Yanqing is good by himself, but very OP when hyper invested and paired with a buffer like Tingyun or BronyaI may just be huffing hopium but this makes me not want to reroll and just play with what I'm given
need gepard boifren
>>1151212Don't worry bro, there are a lot of erotic children in this game
>>1151288the children's heads seem overly big like the playable lolis in Genshin. I don't like that.
>>1151288those are the non-erotic childrenpost erotic children like Clara
>>1151429>no pants>no shoes>not too small but not too big>is a cute autistDid jihadyo accidentally design their best loli yet?
>nearly the entire thread is just seethinglmao the release thread for this is going to be so fucking badcombining e7g, gig and hig into the most autistic thread on earth was never going to end well
>>1151489e7g is already the most autistic, it's going star rail is going to suffer but I doubt it will reach its levels.
>>1151509>but I doubt it will reach its levels.nah bro you havent seen /hig/Now put those 3 in one general along with all the seething shitlords from /v/ and other places that hate mihoyo and just want to shit on it and then you'll have the star rail general
>>1151168>I may just be huffing hopiumNah, you're 100% right. In this beta I got both Bronya and Yanqing and your assessment is spot-on. It's like they were made for each other, given Bronya's crit damage buffing and Yanqing's crit-focused kit.
>>1151514No I have, but you obviously haven't seen e7g, especially recently. Doomposters are literally the norm, with the rest being equally divided between cuckposters, catfags, and Bladerunner shitposters. Nobody gives a single fuck about the game and they barely even discuss it.
>>1151542And /hig/ is the opposite. Schizos have a nuclear meltdown if you say anything bad about the game like you just insulted their whole religion and set of beliefs, people literally trying to act like the story is the best thing man has ever written, how much they cried, how the characters are so perfect and have so much development compared to everything else and whatever random garbage those deranged fanatics are spouting that day.Guess what will happen when you combine /e7g/'s extreme doomposting with /hig/'s fanatic zealotry!
>>1151545>Guess what will happen when you combine /e7g/'s extreme doomposting with /hig/'s fanatic zealotry!It's going to be glorious. On one side you will have the Honkai zealots policing everything, and on the other a bunch of retards constantly posting off topic shit, talking about anime, and complaining about another character cucking their waifu while posting Ryan Gosling cats.
>>1151545>>1151550like a day or two ago one of the idiots had like 50 posts deleted along with every post nuked because he went on a berserker rampage after his favorite girl was insulted that place is insane
>>1151557first thing anyone in e7g would say is that she needs a qos tattoo
>>1151545are you sure you are not describing /gig/?
>>1151592no? gig spends more time in violent schizophrenia, character wars, pushing some agenda, doomposting, shitposting and talking about how their favorite is the best and everything else is trash
>>1151594huh, sounds pretty normal compared to most genchinks I see
>>1151595If you spend a lot of time shitting on genshin and its players then you're probably the problem or part of it
>>1151596Thats the funny part, I don't. They do this to themselves
>>1151591Calm down Satan, they are not actual cuckholds, at least not willing ones. Just extremely butthurt that the gooks in charge of the game have decided to have no girl be for (you) and pair them all with boyfriends. If pic related happened to you, you would be traumatized as well, they basically make them watch as their waifus are getting plowed
>>1151597They don't really. It's pretty hard finding good discussion about any mihoyo title due to the schizophrenia involved when it comes to the site and how a lot of people just go into a fit of rage whenever they see people enjoying the game or having fun talking about a mihoyo game but most players of the game are surprisingly normal outside the schizos that just want to fling shit and talk about how the game is the worst thing they've ever played.
>>1151598But there was a literal guy photoshopping qos tats on everything. did he get banned?
>>1151600>but most players of the game are surprisingly normal outside the schizos that just want to fling shit and talk about how the game is the worst thing they've ever played.Oh, I see the problem, you probably never looked into a mirror...
>>1151604Don't worry, I get all my game discussion outside this site these days like I should have from the very beginning!I'm too old now to deal with children like you that think they're cool for hating on everything and are more interested in shitting down each others throats to stave away the ennui of every day life. If your parents don't want to deal with you then I certainly won't be the one to.
>>1151606See, I haven't even said anything about the game yet here you go with the holier than thou attitude and assumptions. Its like you wanted to prove me right after all. Because what, I called out your community?
>>1151608Proving what right? I'm just pointing out that i'm too old for this shit. I'm too old for your shit. I've spent over a decade on this awful site dealing with idiots and I'm tired of dealing with losers that think they're smarter than they are and believe all their opinions are objective facts.At this point I just want to discuss my videogames in peace with other people that also enjoy the same videogames I do which is why i'm on /vmg/ which is largely untouched by your kind for the most part and other places outside 4chan. So I'll do what most people are unable to do in this site which is to just back out of this ""argument"" and go do something more productive. Hope you find someone to fling shit with you in another thread!
>>1151612>I'm too old for your shitRight...which is why you continue this ultimately pointless argument and share your life story. Rather than discussing...anything really, you'd make increasingly unhinged posts in defense of a objectively shitty fanbase. If it bothers you so much that I hurt the feelings of your precious internet cult, I apologize for triggering you. I'll be more careful around you, miss snowflakeThe most insane part is that we arent even talking about the game, just the fanbase alone and this is how you react
>>1151612You are literally doing the same thing you are complaining about old man
>>1151288>>1151302post the private server
One erotic child a day keeps the shitposters away
>>1151288Jesus people weren't lying about the potato meme, its like they are a different species when comparing their bodies to the adults.
>>1151606>>1151612>i-im better than you!!!>no, you're not.The argument. Doomies coping about how MiHoYo games have better communities than most Jap trash pedo shit.
>1152069Your shitposting isn't helping your case.
>>1151482Makes me sad she's niche use, still might roll for her anyways. Why can't a character like her ever be outstanding? It's always shit like venti or welt that get the broken abilities.
>>1151600>every other general is full of crazy people but not my favorite general we're full of smart and sophisticated posters who have deep intellectual discussions about our favorite topics and never cause drama or shitpost You are so mazed you can't even see the shit in your own pigpen.
>>1152081Venti was considered broken at release but now nobody uses him anymore.Listen to Ganyu's advice and roll for who you like.
We're barely more than a month away from the supposed launch date with no more information. I'm starting to suspect the game is still not close to launch.
>>1152104That is some serious hopium.
>>1152108There will be a official stream on 24th at 7:30PM GMT+8 IIRC and they will probably reveal the official launch date there.Other than that every information you see before that date is either hopium or copium
>>1152104>>1152111I want to believe this, but I am not sure if it makes sense for them to do so.
>>1152081She's not "niche", she just needs taunt to enable her (read March 7th) because if you don't hit her she does basically nothing. She is a giga stat stick and has self cleanses, she is just very unique in her gameplay which is why most ooga booga tier lists call her trash without considering what she does when properly built in a team. Also, don't give a fuck about the meta in mihoyo games, pull with your dick or for the meta it doesn't matter really since the content we have right now is piss easy
>>1152215Does taunt even work vs bosses? Why does a character that needs to be hit not even have a way to enable that? She is basically forced to be tied down to another character, what happens when you can't run two dedicated characters because of some other reason? I makes your total choices for team comp much smaller.
>>1152221IIRC taunt is a character stat so it should work on every enemy except the ones that hit all your allies or ones specifically designed to not be affected by taunt. And yeah that is how Mihoyo designs characters, even the strongest characters in Genshin will be crippled to a halt if you take away their teammate that enables them. Hopefully they release a light cone or another 4 star character that works with Clara, but even now she is pretty strong.
hoping for fu hua reveal on 24
this thread is so awful that you'd think it was on /vg/ lmao
>>1152279They aren't sending their best that's for sure.
>>1150826Also they are focused on strictly domestic sales and happy to give foreigners the finger. See Dolphin Wave and DMM for example
RELEASE THIS KUSOGE ALREADY I GOT NOTHING TO DOOOO
>>1152275Everyone had to relocate after /hvg/ died.
>>1152492you mean /srg/ / /hsrg/
>>1152103https://twitter.com/honkaistarrail/status/1638752438139387905We'll be getting preload and release date confirmation on stream. Since we're getting a preload date this early this might mean we will be getting it earlier than 26 April
>>1152671Is this today?
>>1152942Tomorrow, 18 hours left
>>1152104>>1152108>>1152111>>1152171The game is not releasing this month.>>1152221>Why does a character that needs to be hit not even have a way to enable that?She does. Her ult causes a greatly increased chance for enemies to hit her, the same as March's shield. It is not a 100% chance taunt like the Pyro MC has, but it is close.
>>1152221>Why does a character that needs to be hit not even have a way to enable that?Because taunts and defensive skills are for Preservation characters, so far only fire MC have it. Others like Clara simply increases the chance of getting hit.Taunt itself is an actual stat that's tied to class/role, Destruction characters has the highest base Taunt stat so they're more likely to be attacked.Just wait until they break this "rule".
>>1152374>Dolphin WaveIrrelevant garbage that didn't take off even in Japan.>DMMOnly have outdated shit, the non outdated stuff do have non JP version or simply too irrelevant and not expected to go off.
>>1153238That sounds needlessly convoluted. I've never in all my years seen a taunt ability that just kind of works sometimes if it feels like it. I hate characters that have a mechanic that relies on needing another character to function. That almost 100% guarantees them to be extremely niche and quickly forgotten. Of course it had to be the character design that is most unique to the game and the one I liked the most.
>>1153243>I've never in all my years seen a taunt ability that just kind of works sometimes if it feels like it.Granblue has tons of chars like that though? It's called "Hostility up"
>>1153245I wisely avoided that trash. Everything I hear about that game sounds like a nightmare. The pics of guild leaders having meltdowns about people not taking the game as a second job are hilarious.
>>1153246The game is great, you don't have to tryhard it, but if you do, you better put on your big boy pants.
>>1153246GBF's kinda fun and you can absolutely casual it. But if you try to stare deep into the abyss then the abyss will stare back and drag you into it's depths.
I will buy two packs if miwhoreyo announces the game is launching next week.
>>1153256>two packsHello bwo
>>1153243Also, hostility up is usually always just a side effect and not really the main effect. Like see here>Increases the Trailblazer's DMG Reduction by 42% and gains 1 stack of Magma Will, with a 100% base chance to increase the likelihood of being attacked by all enemies for 1 turn(s).vs>After using her Ultimate, DMG dealt to Clara is reduced by an additional 30%, and Clara has a greatly increased chance of being attacked by enemies for 2 turn(s). In addition, Svarog's Counter is enhanced. When an ally is attacked, Svarog is guaranteed to launch Counters, with its Counter DMG multiplier on the enemy increases by 192%. Adjacent enemies take 50% of the DMG dealt to the target enemy. Enhanced Counter can take effect 2 time(s).OR>Immediately attacks the enemy. Upon entering battle, the chance Clara will be attacked by enemies increases for 2One beefs up her counters, one is an instant attack when the battle starts and the other one is your average taunt provoke. It also depends by how much she increases her chances of being attacked because if it's "greatly increased" like it says then it's actually pretty good and even better if you can increase it to a 100% chance via other abilities like March 7th.
>>1153261And to add to this, Clara seems to be a tanky bruiser. If her numbers are good or remain good through time then she can be still be used later when there's characters that redirect enemy aggro to a certain character like GBF Andira's sage of eternity skill but yeah it is kind of silly having a character based on counters not have a taunt. Should have made her hostility last longer at least instead of 2 turns.
>>1153262I'm not familiar with genshin does mihoyo ever buff characters?
>>1153263no lolThey can get indirectly buffed like in Honkai they gave PRI weapons to old characters they wanted to buff which brought them back to relevancy or change the meta around them like how Keqing went from trashy meme character to unironically good aggravate driver when Dendro came out but if you're expecting them to go back and fiddle with a character number or change their skills then it's impossible.Launch chars are usually doomed to be powercreeped anyway.
>>1153263Just get Clara C6 that extends her counters to the entire party and makes her counter whenever anyone at all gets attacked
>>1153263>mihoyo>buffslolNo anon, even the other answer you got >>1153268 was wrong, the most they'll do is release a shiny new weapon and stigmata set you have to roll for if you want the character to remain relevant. For Shit Rail, expect craft essences, wait, wrong name, artifacts...wrong again, light cones with hyper inflated effects
>>1153324Sounds like you love this game and can't wait for it to release just so you can shit up those threads too
4 hours left bros
PERFECT DOLL JOINTS
>>1153357Is hook the comically retarded potato of SR
>>1153328>asks question>gets mad about the answercultist-kun...
not even going to look for gameplay, is this an actual turn based rpg or another one of those "you can only attack and ult" type of games
>>1153402The gimmick of combat is that you have a "skill point reserve" that charges by 1 when you do a basic attack (which deals low damage of your elemental type) and you use the reserve by 1 when you use a skill (the signature of characters) and as you attack and take damage you charge up your ult which you can use for any character as long as it is your turn. Out of combat wise, each character has techniques that give you a bonus when using it to engage combat, but you can only use it limited times, so a party of 4 cant benefit from 4 techniques. Also you have light cones which are like weapons which grant bonus stats and a bonus ability if you are the same type of class as the light cone. There are also artifacts which are like the endgame grind content, which give shit load of stats but the stats are random upon acquiring. So yeah, I would call it an actual turn based rpg, not as good as things like FE or Persona/SMT games mechanics wise but it being free and having extra game modes like a roguelike mode and a rotating mode which gives pull resources. Though the community is trash (as with mihoyo games)
>>1153407Ill be honest with you, all I got from you is "one skill one ult per char" which sounds exactly like e7, i cant stand these types of games, even FGO at least gives you 3 active skills and an ult per character, i just cant imagine going through an actual RPG like FF where a character is limited to using attack 1 spell like firaga and 1 summon, even if there are a lot of characters it just sounds so braindead
>>1153411Yeah that's what I said, the combat is just "press skill or auto, sometimes ult" and that's because the game is clearly designed for a younger/inexperienced audience in mind. As I said, there are a lot of variables that change how the fight plays out, but if you're looking for more buttons to press, you'd rather play a different game, this game is just a more casual E7 without PvPshittery
>>1153402its the latter>>1153411>which sounds exactly like e7bingo
>>1153416>designed for a younger/inexperienced audience in mind.Just call it what it is instead of trying to excuse it. Generic turn based gacha
>stream in 15 minutes>dead /vmg/ thread>no /vg/ threadWhat went wrong?
>>1153429This game will never take off like Genshin
https://www.twitch.tv/honkaistarrailStream is up, looks like it's basically just a waiting room.
Chinese people aren't human.
>>1153411>even FGO at least gives you 3 active skills and an ult per characterFGO is even more simple than SR.Non AoE characters that can't loop are basically useless 99% of the time.

EN Seele is not real! ONEGAI!
>>1153445Sounds better than english to me. Granted, that's not saying much.
1.0 banners1st half: Seele and her sign2nd half: Jing Yuan and his signJust like in final beta
My f2p butt might not get Seele on the first run. I hope the banner wait is not horrible if that happens.
The twitch chat is so obvious it's bots, it hurts.
Playstation version confirmed
60 free standard tix, just like in final beta.
Why even bother with Playsation? none of the Genshin babies will play it
>>1153461Still trying to reach out to wider audience I guess.Considering that porting games are much easier now, it's not really that big of a bother.
>>1153461Probably money, both sides stand to earn and it's not inconceivable that Sony threw money at Mihoyo to have SR on PS after seeing Genshin's success.
>Dawei calles the launch rewards "measly 10 special passes">The same yellow nigger that had to have the entire plaerbase revolt against him just to get more than that for genshits annviersary
>>1153467Well, he learned something out of it.
Why did they mention Nihon Falcom?
>>1153468No he didnt lmao>>1153469when did that happen?
>>1153470like 5 minutes ago
>>1153470He did considering there are more free rolls now compared to the time of Genshin.
>>1153469Delay is a good mechanic
>>1153471your just making shit up arent you?
>>1153478no I was watching the japanese stream, if you didn't watch it stop replying to me
>>1153479If you didn't watch Dawei's stream your rolls will be cursed
>>1153479oh, jp stream, yeah that makes senseas for why, because they copied s-break mechanic from trails
>>1153483I'm not rolling for anyone anyway, none of the revealed characters appeal to me
>>1153484i really doubt trails is the first game to ever have an out of turn ultimate button
Here it is. It's just a talk between producers.https://twitter.com/houkaistarrail/status/1639243126887030784/photo/1
>>1153487And thats probably true, but its also the only/biggest franchise that does it that survived to this day. Its really no surprise, trails is popular in china and the fatui are literally chinese bootleg ouroboros
>>1153490>trails is popular in chinait is? based chineserean in genshin when?
>>1153494Star Rail collab seems more likely >>1153488
>>1153496yeah but rean in genshin would be funnier
So, it's 20 rolls from preregister + these? How long does it take to get to level 15?
>>1153494I'd rather keep based Rean away from genshit, also Adol fits that one more
>>1153498>>1153500Okay, I'm retarded, it seems I can't post images.
>>1153499he does but rean in genshin would piss of rean haters and genshin haters, itd be funny
>>1153499Falcom certainly wants it. Even if 5% of Genshin's playerbase gets interested into playing Trails that'd be at least 100x more sales. The entry level is too high for normalfags anyway, there are unironically too many Trails games.
>>1153494>it is? based chinesechinks are subhuman race but in this case, yeah its based, look up Clouded Leopard Entertainment, its the chink publishers for trails and why Hajimari, Kuro and Kuro 2 are playable on steam years ahead of NISA incompetent treatment of the series>>1153503>and genshin hatersEh, not really? Genshit is a bad game but this would actually motivate me to play
>>1153507well youre a based rean enjoyer, most people would mald
so what was shown? any new characters? release date is confirmed 26 april?
>>1153512First banner Seele, second banner Jing Yuan, release date 26 April and Preload date 23 April
>>1153513Lame, another month of nothing. I knew there was no way they were doing a surprise early launch. This year has been sad for gacha so far. What happened to 1999 did that get canceled? Feels like it was announced ages ago and then nothing.
>>1153519Well there is the bilibili gacha on April 4th but its by bilibili so I guess were still waiting for SR
20 standard tix from milestone (email)Locked by progression and playtime>10 limited tix for a week total of login>Trailblaze level5: 10 standard tix15: 10 standard tix25: 10 standard tix + 800 jade35: 10 standard tix + 800 jade40 standard tix total and 1600 jade (10 rolls) totalTotal: 60 standard tix, 10 limited tix and 10 rolls on any banner
>>1153533Its important to note we level up much faster than in Genshin, most active beta testers got up to 60 levels in a month
>>115353850? Absolutely.60? You'd need to burn jades to refill stamina.
>>1153533Ok so how many rolls do we get for rerolling? just 20? And we have to register ahead of time for that?
>not!Snezhnaya>frozen shithole with a clear divide between the elite and the poor where a rebellion is brewing>not!Liyue>prosperous, multicultural nation that consists of THE BEST healers in the galaxy and THE BEST mechants in the galaxy and THE BEST cultivators that unlocked the secrets to prolonging their lifespan
>>1153543>Ok so how many rolls do we get for rerolling? just 20?Yes, just 20 standard banner, so you can't reroll in the Seele banner without progressing further.>And we have to register ahead of time for that?No, it's for everyone even if you didn't pre-reg.
>>1153546How much further time wise do you have to go to be able to roll for seele? How many rolls would we have at that point?
>>1153533already more generous than most jap trashthis game is going to mog all turn based gachas
>>1153549keep laughing until your jap trash eos peasant ;)
>>1153550lmao @ your life hoyodrone
>>1153547Just like Genshin, we get scraps from missions/quests so you'd need to go a bit deep to be able roll a couple times in the limited banner.
>>1153553I miss sino alice more every day. The only gacha that respected the new players time.
>>1153551>>1153557>japiggies being this blatantlmao imagine being a nierfagthe future is now old man
>>1153562Good job completely missing the reference.
>>1153563the fuck did you expect from a hoyodrone?
Rerollbros, what are your plans?Depending on how much time it takes to get to level 15, I think it might be better to take multiple accounts to level 5 then log in daily for a week on each of them to reach the guaranteed on the starter banner.
>>1153570I dont know rerollbro, I really want clara but it seems like they intentionally placed the rewards to make rerolling a grind
>>1153570If what previous posters said was true I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and take the first cute girl I get. Not doing another 2 week grind like I did for genshit.
I guess the most comfortable way to reroll is to level up to level TB 15 and roll the newfag banner.
>>1153570I'll probably set up a couple of emulotrs and use a macro to reroll, if I have the time and willpower.Otherwise I'll do this >>1153577 for a couple accounts, if there's nothing good I'll buy an account.
>>1153563who cares about refernce to trash jap culture when all they do is trash as a people should just wipe them out of existenceu just mad hoyo is based and is going to be the face of /v /vmg and /vgL skill issue fucking kill urself
>>1153582It's not good for your health to get this unhinged right before bedtime chang.

i will pick this up but i dont intend to play it for longi like turn based games and love that this isnt some open world collectathon like genshin, but the character designs are mehi dont feel strongly towards any of these, just like genshin and nu-hi3will drop once zzz releases because i love the aesthetics its going for>>1153607bots, fake reg numbers
>>1153712The character design is literally Genshin but better because they have more freedom with it, don't know what you are on about.
>>1153718>overdesigned mess>betterits just as bad because of nu-shittoyo
>>1153723It's definitely better. If you want garbage then look at Honkai 3rd.
>>1153723>overdesigned Don't use words you don't understand.>>1153731God they look awful in that game, the newer ones are slightly better but the aesthetics are the reason why I never bothered with it.
>>1153718>but better because they have more freedom with itWhy lie?
>>1153736>this character design from 4 years is not overdesigned so that means the rest of the game is fine tooneck yourself>>1153751because he's here to defend the company, duh
>>1153755and you're here to shit on everything mihoyo to show the four dudes posting here how cool you are?
>>1153756Im here because Im interested in a upcoming gacha but nothing I have seen so far impresses me(in fact, everything so far looks like its just genshin with e7 slapped on top), yet I can not form a final opinion until I have played the game myself
>>1153758Why not take a trip then? Since you're so important and your opinion matters so much. Everyone's desperate to hear what you have to say and what you think about the game!
>>1153751Bro, the characters don't comfort to some basic elements like Genshin, their damage is because of their weapon not some meme powers so yeah, their designs are more unique since not every fire character has to be red or orange to fit their element. And so are their weapons because they don't all have to fit one basic class. It's objectively more unique, cope and seethe.
>>1153718>The character design is literally GenshinI wish the character design was literally Honkai but I guess that is too much to ask for in a Honkai game. Cheers to more Genshin outside of Genshin I guess.
>>1153763Honkai is dyke trash, I'm glad they're appealing to the fanbase that actually has their back.
>>1153764>implying those faggot would stop playing genshin for another game and a turn based at that.
>>1153759Now you are just getting pissy that I don't join the choir of people(?) that voices their excitement for the game in every post
>>1153765>stopwhy the fuck would anyone stop? You realize you can play more than one game right? You don't have to stan one company/game and be a tribalistic bitch for that game all the time
>>1153767Oh we'll see about that one.
>>1153767Honkaifags hate everything that isnt honkai
>>1153767>You don't have to stan one company/game and be a tribalistic bitch for that game all the timeI'll take the "What is a genshin impact player?"
>>1153770It is amazing how much they hate the fact star rail exists or that it's turn based
>the shitflingers are hereLEAVE REEEEEEEEEEEEI JUST WANT COMFY STAR RAIL DISCUSSION WITH MY BROS
>>1153774Based potato poster.
>>1153772>game has honkai in name>has nothing to do with honkai>"lololol why are are honkaifags mad?"
>>1153774they've been here since last threadActually they're all over the site. I went to shit like /vrpg/ and /vst/ and they're there too, these people are hellbent on shitting anything mihoyo and anyone who enjoys it.
>>1153776Cope and Seethe.Star Rail will be the new face of Honkai while your dyke game falls further into irrelevance.
>>1153780Based, it's over for them.
>>1153778>I went to shit like /vrpg/ and /vst/Anon can I ask you to answer this honestly? Did you try shilling mihoyo games on boards for legitimate games? >>1153780You act like this and you are surprised people here shit on you and the game?
>>1153783>dude shitting himself and flinging shit all over the thread is some honkshitter mad that mihoyo is going turn based instead of actionrumaorofl
>>1153778Ehh I am excited for Zenless just because I am expressing dislike for this game and the watered down genshin designs doesn't mean I hate the company.
>>1153785>if you dont agree with me you must be the boogeyman inside my headTake your meds
>>1153785Have some pity for him. Mihoyo is leaving all his dykes behind and making them straight in their newer games so it's understandable why he feels like going on a crusade against them now.
Going from zoomer action to turn based was the best decision they could have made to filter out all the zoomies
>tone down character designs and nerf tits of previous honkai cast>Basically make genshin but turn based>lolololol based Hoyo is filtering the zoomies???????????????
>>1153785>>1153791>>1153792Did they not teach you how to hide your samefag status in the hoyoshill bootcamp?

>>1153800>it's still going to become the new face of the Honkai Impact franchise!Just like Dragalia Lost was the new face of cygames they even did the same toned down characters thing as well.

>>1153810keep going, the longer your hissy fit, the less discussion there is
>>1153812Nothing really to discuss anyway, just people excited for a game and the schizoid mad the game isnt zoomer action where every character is some ugly dyke with her tits out.Should be a lot more to discuss when the release date gets closer and there's actually things to discuss to the point where no whiny tantrum will stop it.
>>1153814There was barely any discussion during this final closed beta, interest in the game is pretty low since its another generic autobattler, and you really think things will get better? I hope mihoyo pays you for your dedication
>>1153815Keep going, your endless crying is good entertainment while we wait for the release date. You're powerless to stop anyone from playing or enjoying the game and your opinion doesn't matter or hasn't mattered to anyone ever.
Can you faggots get a room
>>1153816>endless crying is good entertainment while we wait for the release dateSo, safe to assume you have nothing better to do with your life than advertise for mihoyo?
Potatobros what the fuck do I do until April 26? Do I say fuck it and download BA
I'm pretty glad Star Rail has a lot more cunny honestly.Dyke impact was always about the hags and other ugly cunts so I'm happy HSR has a bunch of lolis, teens and flat girls.
>>1153826so how many recycled body models is that, 2, 3?
>>1153828Dunno, I lost count how many aponia clones the dyke game has but who cares about them anyway.
>>1153830Calm down your china pride for a second and asnwer the question, how is the model reuse in SR?
bootlickers already defending a game thats not even releasedeverything wrong with the zoomer generationthey just cant take corpo cocks out of their mouths
>>1153832Yeah, it's hilarious how asshurt this honkek is at people enjoying star rail.
>>1153762i agree with the colors-elements part since that is such an obnoxiously bad part of genshin, but most of them are still overdesigned and follow some other design principles instead (asymmetrical capes, weird trinkets and straps all over the clothing)
>>1153774no playable shota (not twinks) no playcope and seethe hoyodrone
>>1153825Watch Galaxy Express 999 to get in the space adventure mood.
>>1153825yes, BA is great
>>1153897you sure you want a mihoyo chink playing it?
>>1153901you're still seething about the game? damn
A whole more month of banal trolling...The wait better be worth it.
>>1153615I mean if you don't mind wasting time doing 30 minute rerolls then go ahead, but I'd rather do something more fun and enjoyable than that.
>>1153815>There was barely any discussion during this final closed betaBecause barely anyone here got in or or people who got in aren't here.There was barely any discussion during Genshin's beta either compared to after it was released.
>>1153825Yeah, BA is cool.Perfect as a side game too.I pretty much ignored all the time limited harder content and still can save a lot of gems to roll characters I want.
>>1153826Yeah, there's basically 2 cunny body type in SR.The younger woman body model felt a bit of a waste though, it's too close to the older woman one, should have made it shorter for an older teen body.>>1153982You can just not open this general though, it's not like there's anything to talk about.
>>1154056Oh yeah, the teen model seems virtually identical to the adult one.
>>1153826Bro you are dreaming. This game has as many if not more hags.
>>1154076Genshin taught me that potatophiles can live off literal scraps and still claim a game is catering to them.In Genshin, the potato mode type is literally the least used model type to the point that there are as many 5* tall males (the 2nd least used model type) as there are playable potatoes in the game and it took Mihoyo 2 years to release a 2nd 5* potato yet they still keep acting as if the game is cunny impact.
>>1154085holy fuck this mans seethingdont worry bro, your dehya will stay shit forever.
>>1154087Hagbros win again!!
>>1154088Hagbros win simply by the fact that they don't have to worry about jail time
>>1154094Better be at the jail than at a funeral
>>115360712 million were watching on Bilibili.
>>1154099bro you were not supposed to point that outthe narrative....
>>1154099>>1154100So basically dead on global? Better install chink version on release nobody wants to be in a dead server
>>1154124it's a singleplayer game...
is the light cone from the prerelease event good?
>>1154156It's good on characters that can charge ult very fast like Himeko, it's meh on all other characters (though it's better than equipping a 3 star light cone)
>>1154158Are light cones like the weapons of this game?
>>1154159Yeah but the catch is you can only use the type of class the light cone is on the type of class the character is (well you can still equip it and gain the stats but not the additional effect, unlike how bow users in Genshin can only equip bows and such) and the light cone banner is now 75 to 25
>>115416225 to guarantee a 5* light cone???
>>1154163No, hard pity is at 80 but the chance of getting the banner light cone is 75 to getting a random standart banner light cone which is 25
bros my first star rail fap was bailuI thought it'd be clara but the Bailu porn grabbed me by the dick and took my first
>>1154164That's like Genshin, provided there are also two in one banner.
>>1153808Who Waves is going to compete against Genshit tho...
>>1154352Doesn't matter I'm going to drop both when ZZZ release
>>1154356based and samezzz simply has the sexy aesthetic going on for it and i find the character designs appealingthe fact that zoomer retards are already filtered by the "roguelike" tv screen navigation gameplay is a plus
>>1154380Yeah and it has the cute pink hair mesugaki from waterkuma which might be my seasonal waifuuntil then I will kill time with ww and star rail (and hookpost in this thread)
I found thisHow's this for a tierlist? Any beta testers want to chip in with their opinions?
>>1154463Bro I am not gonna do a replay of the discussion on /vg/
>>1154474both posts were posted at the same time...
>>1154463I rate it 3 prydwens out of 5

>>1154356>ZZZSorry not into homosexual furries.
>>1154463My favorite designs are always at the bottom of tier lists. Being a metafag is suffering.
>>1154499>being a metafag is suffering because your characters are ugly>being a waifufag is suffering because you get your shit kicked in in combatplaying gachas is suffering
>>1154463Reposting this over here since it was discussed over on /vg/ a fair bithttps://rentry.org/mfqfr6Wrote this based on discussions on last thread and info floating around. I didn't write it to be the guide maker or whatever, I wrote it mostly so I wouldn't forget because I'm 100% going to forget in a month by the time this comes out so if it helps out others then that's great then.Honestly have no idea what to write about Himeko or Phys MC so I didn't.Any opinions and stuff? Like I said, this is me mostly taking notes rather than making a strict tierlist of my opinions.
What nationality is Arlan? He's blacker than Sumeru characters in genshin.
>>1154813He probably electrocutes himself all the time that's why his skin is dark
>international rape day on march 24th>star rail launch on the 26thWhat to do on the 25th, honkbros?
>>1154939I mean, April
>>1154939>>1154941By celebrating a bit of both and having consensual mating sex with Hook
>>1154942Apparently hook is actually great?
>>1155083I'm still building Aslan...
>>1154813African American of course.
>>1155083Any CBT anons still in here to comment on this? Or did everyone go shitpost in vg
>>1155155game is deadnobody wants to play turn based games because its boring
>>1155496They hyped it up but butchered the hype by releasing it a month later. Probably would be a dead game if it wasn't a jewhoyo game
>>1155496Speak for yourself zoom zoom, some of us haven't had our dopamine receptors permanently fried by growing up with a tablet and tiktok since birth. Turn based is the thinking mans combat, not meant for children and the mentally handicapped.
>>1155500>>1155506why do you guys instantly reply to bait posts but not gameplay posts
>>1155507Not in the beta I have nothing to say about gameplay.
>>1155507because he's a shill
>>1155155switch Arlan with herta and you have the CN 4* tierlist
>Got 6 gigs of phone space leftNothing will go wrong
So who are you all rerolling for? I'll probably aim for Seele since she's limited and all.
I've been obsessively collecting all information I can about this game so I can be fully informed on what to do when the game comes out even though I didn't make it into any beta
>>1155793If it's like genshin, I dunno if I have it in me to reroll.You know. Only on phone and needing to play for quite a while..
>>1155870It'll probably be more painful than genshin but it's more generous than genshin since you're guaranteed at least two 5*'s to start with because of Beginner banner 50-pity and Standard 300 pity.You're not likely to hit the standard pity any time soon unless you're enough of a clown to waste rolls there but should eventually get to it and claim a free pick 5* from that pool.
>>1155793Bronya probably, and will claim Himeko from the 300 pity. Seele is nice but I can probably get her by saving up even if I have to skip this banner of hers. The only limited 5* I want from those revealed are her and Kefka after all. And even then, I don't want Seele that much honestly.
>>1155872Wouldn't it be better to reroll for Seele and grab Bronya later down the line? Kafka isn't the first or second banner so she shouldn't be coming for like a month or two which means plenty of time to save.
>>1155874I want both Bronya and Himeko. And unlike Seele, there is no way to guarantee either besides the one time 300 pity.
>>1155496Heaven Burns Red is doing great
>>1155507gameplay no one gives a shit about vs bait literally engineered to attract responses, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
>>1155891well yeah but that is actually made by semi competent people, WFS
>>1155902if WFS are semi competent then Mihoyo are ultra competent
>>1155903its not april fools yet
>>1155902WFS? competent? in what world? they're the same people that ran all their other games into the ground
>>1155756>4 gigs of phone space leftHow big is this game again?
>>1155915Probably 10 gigs to 20, which might grow as more areas get added
>>1155916>just this + HI3 alone takes almost 50% of my phone spacebros. im ngmi
>>1155902>semi competentHAHAHAHAHAHAHAthat jap trashfire wished it was even 0.000000001% competent as mihoyocome back when a wfshit pc port actually work oh wait
>>1156155They do. Flawlessy. The JP ones that is.The English Another Eden port is garbage, but that's not on wfs. The Japanese version has zero issues, just like HBR's.
>>1156163>The Japanese version has zero issues,The Japanese port of AE has had several problems like fucking up rates, having to take the game down for days to fix game breaking bugs and the hilarious powercreep that just absolutely killed the game. Shoumetsu toshi had the same issue too with jew garbage, horrible powercreep and awful management.
>>1156155Not only you start sperging out when someone insults mihoyo, you do it even when another dev is spoken about in a positive way. You truly are a bot
>>1156169Danmachi was also wrightflyer and it's infamous for being an another eden clone where the devs don't give a fuck and outright told people to go play something else if they didn't like the censorship. So many memes were made of that.
>>1156170You are confusing crunchyroll with devs. I knew you were retarded but damn you want to double down on that?
>>1156174I'm not the anon you're sperging at. I'm replying to the dude that looks like he's played a game or two here >>1156166 and not the clown that has this thread open for the sole purpose of shitting on star rail and anyone attempting to discuss it. Did the /vg/ thread already 404 or something? I thought all the kids went over there.
>>1156178If you need a safe space you can always fuck off to reddit
>>1156149just uninstall HI3? games garbage anyway and much better shit is coming out
>>1156192If you want a space to shitpost and flame all you want, you can fuck off to /v/ where you belong. But you wouldn't know that, tourist.
>>1156313I don't think I will
>>1156313its just butthurt retards from /hig/ and /gig/that place has the most vicious and dedicated shitposters
>>1156314No, you should. I implore you. Take the shilling schizo with you too for good measure.>>1156315Don't forget kuroshits who gloat about how MiHoYo has fallen just because they have the galls to try something that isn't an action RPG.
>>1156318>just because they have the galls to try something that isn't an action RPG.Actually its because regardless if they make a action rpg or turn based rpg, its a shitty game without a shred of originality
>>1156318I don't think anyone actually shills anything Kuro, if you go to any pgr general then it's either doomposting on par with e7g or being excited but cautious about Wuthering Waves or whatever Kuro is putting out given that they play PGR.Meanwhile if you go to /hig/ then it's schizophrenia deluxe with idiots seething about Star Rail's existence, seething about the fact about it's turn based and not action and desperately trying to drag the game down. I'd bet money this idiot is somewhere from there honestly.
>>1156324You know you could just ask me, right? Haven't been to /vg/ in years. So you can take your boogeyman narrative and shove it
>>1156326totally believe you broyou're a native from one of the deadest boards on the site and dedicate your life to schizoing in threads when literally no other thread in vmg has this issue with some retard replying to every single post and seething that people are enjoying a gameyou totally did not come from another board/general with an agenda and a burning hatred towards this specific game
>>1156327I can't convince you, but it's the truth. If thats how you want to keep acting then the only conclusion we'll ever come to is you waking up with a scream because I get to live rent free in your head, and me laughing because of your conspiracy theory ramblings.
>>1156331Why would anyone give two shits about some kid that decided to park himself in threads of games he hates and shit on everyone that dares to post or discuss it without his permission? Don't value yourself so highly, even garbage on the sidewalk has morevalue than youEveryone's going to play the game anyway, everyone's going to discuss the game anyway and everyone's going to forget about your temper tantrums and bitch tears about how you hate mihoyo so much in seconds as they go on with their day
>>1156339>Why would anyone give two shitsThen, why do you?
>>1156318Nah Kurobros aren't doing anything, they had to deal with doomposters since the very first day, they would never go around pretending WW will kill Genshin or shit talking the game.
I thought the maze was a blizzard thing but I can see now that we are all in the maze. Some are so lost deep in the labyrinth they have started to confuse it with true reality.
>>1156324>doomposting on par with e7gNot quite on that level although it does seem to be building there. They still don't have the utter disregard epic shitters have about their own game and general, which spends more time discussing doujins, novels, and anime than anything related to their game or any game for that matter.
>>1156350It's just completely different going from pgr that seems a more down to earth general where people will be the first ones to shit on kuro vs something like hig where you need to be praising the company, game and story at all times or else you're an evil doomposting schizo
>>1156352I enjoyed my time there a lot, the general has a healthy mix of mostly ironic doomposters, and measured fans, a surprisingly chill place overall.
The /vg/ thread really has it bad. The ban evading hardcore yurifag is shitting all over it.
>>1156324>pgr generalThat is unironically the most sane community out of anywhere. Every other youtube, social media or Chinese community has borderline fanatic superiority complexes.That said, it is really humorous when the PGR general is the most sane place while you see PGR redditors claim that PGR is superior to AAA PC games and unironically bandwagon it.
>>1156435>or Chinese community has borderline fanatic superiority complexes.Honkai has it the worst by an entire light year. Like holy SHIT, that entire community has people writing entire fanfics, headcanons and papers on how the Honkai impact 3rd world is actually connected to every other game and has to abide to their rules while their mouth is busy fellating the story writers for writing the best piece of fiction ever made. They routinely shill their game everywhere and shit on others too, it's like a cult.AK is decent, there's a fair amount of people that think it's the best game ever made but the honkai guys make them look like harmless kittens in comparison.Genshin, I'd say the haters are more the problem because the community is really huge and very busy killing each other and jumping on each others throats to care about other fanbases. I would for once would love to go to a game's general and not have them be seething about genshin.Like the TOF general for example was 50% seething about genshin, 40% eceleb drama and 10% being the actual game. I imagine the wuthering waves thread will most likely be the same too just like any thread where idiots can use genshin for free replies and free ammo against that game.
>>1156442>>1156435gfl's fanbase is pretty cult-like too with gunfans being an absolute plague and worshipping mica as their infallible gods
>>1156431Oh great. You-know-who found it.>>1156442Yeah, that makes sense.People make comparisons to free to play MMOs in the past but they never got to the level as bad as Chinese Gachas in their home country.
>>1156449It's like they are in a clique, one schizo leaves, and another takes his place.
I wonder if HSR's fanbase will be swallowed by 3rd's godawful fanbase or if it'll manage to stand on its own two feet and be decent
>>1156462We will have to wait and see. Right now the generals are not a good representation of the overall audience because only the tryhards and the HI3fags are posting in these threads. Still though, the fact that discussion is relatively decent when an external schizo isn't shitting all over the place is a good sign, especially since the new crowd isn't even really posting here yet. And truth be told, HI3 isn't big enough to swallow this game.
>>1156431Yeah, that's why I'm here and not there.
I hope the story is goodHonkai's story was completely awful and devoid of any stakes or satisfaction and Genshin plays it really safe so I hope it's a fun read and not a tragedywank like every other chinese game
>>1156534I've enjoyed the story thus far that has been in the betas. While I wouldn't call it a "tragedy-wank," it does lean more on the HI3rd side than the GI side. Spoilers for the first planet, Jarilo-VI:You go to a planet that, due to the effects of a Stellaron, has been covered in an eternal winter. The team of protagonists offer their services to seal away the Stellaron to the queen of the planet, only for the queen to betray them and try to have her guards arrest the protagonists. After some investigation and the help of the queen's daughter, you find that the queen's mind has been altered by the Stellaron, which promised her the means to save her people, so she sees any threat to the Stellaron as a threat to her people, despite the opposite being the case. The protagonists eventually kill the queen and seal the Stellaron, but the queen's daughter decides to tell her people that the queen died a noble death in the fight to seal the Stellaron in order to preserve her legacy and honor.
>>1156561>it does lean more on the HI3rd side than the GI side.So nothing happens, everyone's gay and all things get magically solved without consequences or stakes?
>>1156563>everyone's gayNo, the game is still very much modeled after Genshin. With it basically pandering to everyone at the same time while committing to nothing. But the story is indeed more reminiscent of Honkai in its darker themes.
>>1156566That's what I was getting at though. Honkai 3rd doesn't have darker themes.It tries to tease dark themes or pretend bad things will happen but in the end nothing happens, everything gets solved by a convenient plot device out of absolutely nowhere and if anything bad actually and truly happens then it gets retconned later on or fixed later on by some asspull.
>>1156574I mean Bronya's mom died, that's not exactly a convenient end. What more do you want?
>>1156577>I mean Bronya's mom diedthats part of her backstory, not something that happened in the actual story.
>>1156586I am talking about Star Rail, her adoptive mother dies during the story. That was no happy ever after end.
>>1156589Oh star rail. Yeah, I hope the story is good and not an actual mess like their previous work but it's too early to tell since it took Honkai like two years for Final lesson and it also took Genshin almost two years for the story to be worth reading.
>>1156442>their mouth is busy fellating the story writers for writing the best piece of fiction ever madeKek you've clearly never been there, they fucking hate the story have hated it for a long time. Stop repeating shit you've heard on the telephone. It's hilarious how much honkai lives rent free in genshitters minds.
>>1156611Sounds like you're the one that hasn't ever been there? That place spends every day discussing either Kolosten, Elysian Realm and the Finale arc while repeating the same ritual shitposts every day.
>>1156612You are absolutely delusional if you think people are happy with the current story.
>>1156614People might not be but everyone in that thread only ever circlejerks about how amazing the story, the game and mihoyo is. It's amazing how anyone can actually stand that place.
>>1156618>every other community is the worst except for my favorite one Ironic you can't see your own bias, you really should stop throwing stones you are going to break your glass house.
So does anyone that played the beta have a rough estimate as to how many limited rolls you get by the end of the tutorial?
>>1156622Which is my favorite one then? Go ahead, take a guess.It's hilarious how much genshin lives rent free in honkshitters minds.
>>1156626you get one roll thats it, good luck.
>>1156632Wow that's worse than Genshin. I am gonna be coping that we are gonna get a bit more at launch otherwise I am just rerolling the standard banner.
>genshit fanbase>not the absolute worst thing there isI wonder who's behind those posts
>>1156645The spirit of barry lives on in every slurper. Too many people invest their own personality and self worth into games and the companies that make them. Any criticism of the game in question they take as a personal attack against themselves. It's quite sad really and only serves to perpetuate the sad state of gaming. They are so mazed they can't even see that they are making the games they love worse by being unable to look at them with a critical eye.
You are giving Barry way too much credit by associating him with every single retard on this Mongolian basket weaving forum. He is just another retard, let him stay that way, don't glorify him.
the only thing this thread is showing me is that all mihoyodrones are insuferable lmao
>>1157123The himecope is eternal
>>1156626I think by the end of the 6-weeks-ish long beta I had done 140 limited character banner pulls. I could've gotten more if I no-lifed Hall of Forgotten Memories.
>>1156626>>1157172Oops, sorry, I missed the "tutorial" at the end of your post. If memory serves, not many. It mostly gives you standard pulls in the beginning so you can dump into the beginner banner.
>>1157094>Go to this site's tier list>Arlan ranked above Yanqing>Go to this site's DPS simulation>Arlan sims as doing far less damage than Yanqing, while also requiring saccing his health to do soWhoever runs this site is stupid.
>>1157178Isn't arlan literally trash though
>>1157271Yes. They tried to make him the "berserker" character, kinda like HuTao, who saccs his own health to deal increased damage, but his stats are so low he's not worth using over the other 4* damage-dealers, let alone the 5*s.I think they were just afraid of making another HuTao, so they tried to undertune him, but went overboard.
>>1157178>Whoever runs this site is stupid.Prydwen has a terrible reputation on most places if I recall correctly. They do retarded things and make up numbers then people call them out and things get fixed after pretty much outsourcing everything and having non-retarded people unfuck their stuff.
>>1157178https://www.reddit.com/r/HonkaiStarRail/comments/125esnp/i_simulated_every_characters_damagesustain_over_7/There's this too>RedditWhatever, it's information and I'll take anything that feeds me the info I want.
>>1157425That's the same thing from the Pridwen guy...
>>1157539Yeah, because he IS the prydwen guy but the video adds a lot of contexthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkiQyqYIxzU
>>1156462/hig/ already ruined the /vg/ thread, and I don't think this game can handle an active /v/ thread.Is a shame.
>>1157425>I'll take anything that feeds me wrong informationdude you're literally asking to be brainwashed
>>1157933>asking to be brainwashedthats a prerequisite to enjoy mihoyo's shovelware
>>1157933Why is it wrong then? Can you explain why it's wrong using your words?
>>1157943NTA, but those sims take some assumptions that are unrealistic. For example:1: It does not account for Seele's extra turns from killing enemies, something that will come into play in almost every fight in the game. Even primarily single-target bosses almost always have at least 2 adds.2: For Sushang, he assumed she will be able to take full advantage of her passive that only trigger after she inflicts physical break. Against enemies that don't have a physical weakness, she falls off a cliff.3: For AoE, he only counted 3 targets. There are a lot of fights where you're up against 4-7 enemies at once, so simming with only 3 targets give an unfair advantage to enemies that primarily do blasts, rather than full AoEs, which is why Serval is shown as above Himeko.
>>1157950That's a lot better, I want to discuss things and talk about the game so thanks for explaining your point of view.As for the actual point: Yeah, I think the sims and damage charts is pretty dumb since damage sims usually only compare damage between characters under perfect conditions and real world conditions will never be that perfect but I think the video listed here does a good job of explaining what the character does and how they work ( >>1157543 )The teambuilding video seems to do a good job of explaining skill points and how to actually build a team too since nobody has explained that yet or even talked about it.And if there's a lot of fights with 4-7 enemies at once then I imagine characters like Clara will be gods in there if you can get all 7 to attack her for the fat counters.
>>1157951I wouldn't say there's "a lot" of battles with 4-7 enemies, but there's enough that assuming every AoE encounter has only 3 is silly. For example, there is a boss that can summon 6 adds at once. Granted, each of these adds is very weak, so you'll likely only require one or two damage instances to kill each one, but chewing through all of them with single target or blast abilities would take significantly more turns than a single AoE.As for Clara, yes, in fights with a lot of adds she's very useful, but there is a caveat. When she uses her ult and Svarog's counters get buffed, she only gets two uses of this. Additionally, it turns Svarog's counter into a blast ability for those two instances, which can kill adds that haven't attacked yet, which will reduce her overall damage.I will also give this guy credit, he did teach me something I didn't realize: That Arlan's skill doesn't consume skill points. As I don't like HP-saccing characters I never really tried him out, so I just assumed it consumed his health and a skill point, rather than just his health, as I don't believe the game states anywhere that his skill doesn't consume skill points. That honestly does make him a lot more viable than I initially thought.
>>1157950Really informative post anon
