Genshin Impact is celebrating its first anniversary soon, packed with rewards and events. Unfortunately, the rewards for the huge celebration have been disappointing to many fans.

miHoYo has been slowly revealing the rewards that will be available for players, and as they continue to be unveiled, the community outrage continues to grow.

Fans are unhappy with the lack of high-value rewards and are heading to social media platforms to vent their anger. Twitter, in particular, is full of unhappy fans who are bashing miHoYo, and players can read some of their thoughts here.

Genshin Impact: Fans are unhappy with anniversary rewards

Time flies, a year has gone by, and Genshin Impact is about to turn one year old! Today, the Teyvat Hiking Association has brought you a rewards preview of the one year anniversary community events~View the full notice here >>>…#GenshinImpact

Genshin Impact's first anniversary is coming up, and many fans are disappointed by the announced Anniversary rewards. The new announcement came earlier today from the official Genshin Impact Twitter account and detailed several community activities planned to provide fans with extra rewards.

Unfortunately, many fans have pointed out the lack of substantial rewards from what should be a massive celebration and have taken issue with the fact that they will only gain small sums of Primogems for what are essentially web events.

Mihoyo shared more details for the 1st anniversary community rewards and involves RNG and Contest.Web Event- 10% to win Welkin Pass- Guaranteed 100k MoraContest- Social Media to participate- Rewards consist 100 Primogems and irl items- Need Talent#原神 #GenshinImpact

The biggest cause of outcry is the "A Message in Time" Web Event that has stretched the rewards into a raffle, resulting in only 10% of the community gaining a precious Blessing of the Welkin Moon, while 90% only recieve a pittance of 100,000 Mora.

Many fans have pointed out how much money Genshin Impact has made in just a year. The fact that players are required to participate in social media events just for a chance to receive a reward is incredibly upsetting to many.

Fan reactions to these rewards


The Genshin Impact community has not taken this news well and has been slamming miHoYo on multiple platforms with their thoughts on the rewards. The game's rewards have been compared to other Gacha games that are far more generous during events, especially anniversary events.

Even Genshin Impact's sister game Honkai Impact has a larger reward for its anniversary. Players can see some examples of fan outcry here:

It remains to be seen whether the rewards will increase in the next update of Genshin Impact. Hopefully the in-game event will address community concerns and provide tons of rewards.
