After a few weeks of waiting, Yoimiya has finally arrived at Genshin Impact with Phase 2 update 2.0. Interestingly, the Golden Flame Tapestry banner received a different response from players around the world.
The arrival of Yoimiye is definitely a great moment for many players. However, according to Genshin Impact story, August 10 is also Amber’s birthday. As a result, some fans were disappointed by miHoY’s ignorance of Mondstadt’s sliding champion.
Genshin Impact congratulated Amber on Twitter
Shortly after the official announcement regarding the Golden Flame tapestry, Genshin Impact congratulated Amber on Twitter.
Along with Kaeya and Lisa, Amber is one of the starting characters that players get for free in Genshin Impact. She is a great character who wholeheartedly supported the traveler in the first days of their journey.
Therefore, the Genshin Impact community expected a better celebration from miHoYo for Amber’s birthday.
Fans react to Yoimiya’s banner on Amber’s birthday
It is worth noting that Amber and Yoimiya have similar kits in Genshin Impact. Both belong to the Pyro element and use arcs.
Yoimiya looks like Amber’s replacement in the game, and announcing Yoimiya on Amber’s birthday seemed rude to many.
Here are some fan tweets that best illustrate this story:
One of the biggest reasons behind this fan reaction is miHoYo’s failure to wipe out Amber. Although it is an initial character, many players still want to build it. Unfortunately, the lack of miHoYo made Amber almost useless in Genshin Impact.
How good is Yoimiya and Genshin Impact?
As already mentioned, Yoimiya is considered Amber’s replacement. The five-star Pyro character is undoubtedly a good main DPS, which is why he is also seen as a Pyro version of Ganyu.
Yoimiya’s banner called The Tapestry of the Golden Flame also contains similarities between Sayu, Dione and Xinyan. The hype for Saya was in heaven, thanks to her sympathetic person and LilyPichu.
All in all, it would have been great if miHoYo had released a special event for Amber for her birthday. Nonetheless, players around the world are spending a lot of their Primogems on Yoimiya’s banner and praying to unlock some constellations on prominent characters.
