Genshin Impact Developers Field User complaints about Always On Anti-Cheat



Genshin Impact just released, a free gacha title from Chinese developers miHoYo that takes years to download, and fans are eagerly diving into it for a bizarre mix of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and anime girls.

Sure, it looks like a win at first glance, especially since you can get Waluigi to ride a beautiful horse, but it comes down to an argument the gaming industry has had for years.

The anti-cheat that Genshin Impact is always online, even if you aren’t actively playing the game. Users immediately began to point out the backlash that valiant received regarding its “always online” anti-cheat (which can now be bypassed by anyone due to settings) while CS players begged Valve for a more intrusive anti-cheat.

miHoYo announced in a blog post that it has received feedback from the community regarding anti-cheating measures and taken appropriate steps to ensure community harmony.

In the update (which was posted a few hours after the blog post, late September 28), users should be able to exit the title and note that the anti-cheat has been successfully closed.

miHoYo states that when the app was closed, it was only reading system information and not processing (or sending) the information in any respect. The anti-cheat program continued to function, the developers said, to protect the title from external plugins.

The backlash was apparently large enough that the developers simply gave up on using it to protect their title. ensure that they sin on the user experience side in the future.

Another title, another possible root-kit as the developers continue to battle bad actors to keep the experience a bit safer for everyone involved while protecting the investment in studio work.

The middle ground between and and the developers is hard to find as the bad actors continue to struggle to blur the lines between the two groups.

It should be noted that aside from the anti-cheat and the gacha playstyle which encourages (if not indulges in) the game to collect desired items, all reports to the title have been strong regarding how the title feels and works on PlayStation, mobile, and PC. Since the title is free, microtransactions are obviously necessary for the title to continue its life.
