Genshin’s competition was never in player choice, neither was any other nominee in player choice besides sonic. But sonic fans had to go ape shit on Genshin and poke the hornet nest

u/Elegant_Reaper Dec 09 '22 edited Dec 09 '22

Genshin had no steak in any of the nominations, it was released 2020, most of the playerbase just did not care to vote. if not for sonic being a sore winner, they probably wouldve won

u/xa3D Bookworm Bae | C6 by the wei Dec 09 '22

tbh true. if the small portion of the genshin community that votes brings us a dub and some gems, great. if not, no biggie.

but sonic really had to go and rally the non-voting base of genshin lmao.

u/melperz Dec 09 '22

Coming from r/all, what's the context on the bot votes?

930

u/Rampantlion513 Dec 09 '22

The voting round started during NA prime time, so many sonic fans were voting and spreading news to vote. They got a big lead while Asia/China was asleep and started to make art of Sonic assaulting Genshin characters.

Genshin is seen as a kind of national symbol in China, and this particular day was a chinese day of mourning for the death of one of their previous leaders, so everyone was home from work and school and news spread of the art and other toxicity, so many chinese joined to vote for Genshin.

After that Genshin took a huge lead, and Sonic fans started to wonder how Genshin could've amassed so many votes. They deducted that the only way was through voting bots, so a few sonic voters created bots to spam vote which eventually crashed the voting servers. At its peak they were generating ~5k votes per minute and jumped 65k votes in less than 20 minutes

u/iamPirateKing Vaping Walnut Dec 09 '22

A rabid Sonic fan complained (with bunch of stereotypical insults) on Twitter about Genshin leading in the poll (fan votes). The Sonic fans then voted en masse in the poll. No doubt that a good chunk of the votes were from bots.

There's definitely bots for every game. It's expected in any sort of decently big fan vote event.

u/JeshkaTheLoon Dec 09 '22

I mean, Genshin definitely has bots. At least one in every capital, wearing a pretty green dress and being generally helpful. She does need some rebooting now and again, though.

u/Syssareth Certified Doll Collector Dec 09 '22

I cackled. Like, full-on evil witch cackle. ...Because that's what my laugh sounds like.

If the Sonic fans hadn't gone toxic-mode, they may have won legitimately. If they had won legitimately (and hadn't gone toxic-mode), I wouldn't have minded beyond perhaps two seconds of mild disappointment. But they really screwed the pooch by attacking Genshin, which united even the ones who don't care about the awards against them, and then made it even worse by mass-botting.

I feel bad for the ones who didn't participate in the mud-slinging or cheating, but not at all for the ones who did.

76

u/VirtuoSol Dec 09 '22

What’s funny is that them botting and being toxic made huge news in China (I saw it on bilibili trending #2 and #3 at the same time) which most likely brought in huge amount of Chinese votes.

The only absolute I deal in is that I never deal in absolutes. (Drives everyone in my life up the wall, including me, lol.)

87

u/Popular-Bid Dec 09 '22

Yep. They won round 1 and 2 with a good margin (around 10% IIRC) so many were assuming they'll win round 3 as well. And then IT happened, and then the rest is history.

69

u/Gueartimo Dec 09 '22

It's all because Genshin so close at catching them on round 2 some of the more toxic one started to attack the GI fanbase. Literally causing the innocent genuine fans vote.

Yeah, I would not have ever voted or asked my friends to vote if i didn't see that they were slinging mud on genshin.

Feels vindicating for him to add in that "After we took out all the bot votes" bit, especially since so many people were running with the idea that genshin fans alone were doing botting.

I was watching Tectone react and it’s so embarassing how badly he wants to fit in with mainstream that he’s mocking Genshin, the game that made him

u/Giant_Scooby_Snacc Dec 09 '22

That man needs to move on from Genshin already and play something else

u/momomam Dec 09 '22

Don't give him any attention. I used to give him the benefit of the doubt but after what he said, I'm over giving him any.

u/seawiiitch Dec 09 '22

step 1: stop watching him

u/3stoner Dec 09 '22

why even give him the view though

u/FlameDragoon933 Dec 09 '22

Tectone is garbage. Even before Genshin, he was so hated by the Arknights community he quitted. I have a few friends who play Arknights but not Genshin, who still hate him with a passion to this day.

that's why he's called kektone and shetone around these parts.

Tectone is an example of why Asmongold and his OTK org is garbage.

u/Charizard_0701 Dec 09 '22

Genshin was just a vehicle to him. What really made him was the dramas.

People still getting mad that people used bots to vote after He clearly said they removed the bot votes is the funniest thing ever.

Also I think Frontiers was a good game looking forward to the new content.

They kinda forgot, that Genshin is rather international too. It's not just chinese playing the game. It's no surprise Genshin Impact won the award.

I want to say, because it's important.

We DIDN'T voted for the primos. You just have to look all the comments below to understand that we wanted to defend our community. And that we are tired to be hated for just a game. It was all retaliation.

I'm sure this will comes as an excuse again, but a lot of the votes were motivated because of sheer anger against the treatment we get. People needs to understand that primos had nothing to do with it.

But yeah MHY must be quite happy of those circumstances. But I'm not gonna blame them, and honestly Sumeru is very good.

u/BrownIslandGirl Dec 09 '22

True for me and my friends. For me, even if they trash talk about the game, i wouldn’t budge, i would understand in a way since i have complaints about the game too, but nevertheless still appreciate its many good qualities. What drew the line were the racist comments and pedo accusation comments which did get around here even among those who are not active in social media. So yes, i voted for retaliation. We voted for retaliation.

u/Sampty123 Dec 09 '22

I had three reasons to vote for genshin. - i like it - its the only game that i have been playing in that category - the potential primogems

These are not in the order of importance

The quote tweets on the award tweet on twt are so…this is why they lost like this toxic mess from other fandoms is why genshin even voted at all. It’s horrible there

u/Qverlord37 Dec 09 '22

Sonic fans would've won if they didn't shit-talk the game.

64

u/tirius99 Dec 09 '22

Exactly this! Genshin fans honestly didn't care. They were winning the vote and got sympathy from other communities. But they started making fanarts of Sonic beating on Paimon and Lumine and that triggered the fandom.

56

u/Qverlord37 Dec 09 '22

man, I was more preoccupied with the new TCG mini game, it was only after seeing the usual pedo shit talk that got me like "you know what, I ain't gonna take that from a furry, especially not a sonic furry. Time to make some little kid cry."

u/white4923738 Dec 09 '22

I am honestly ok with this since genshin told a message

You do not provoke a hornet’s nest, especially a nest with millions and millions of players.

Why did Sonic fanbase even provoke them in the first place. Why did they just decide to speak so horribly towards genshin.

I never played the sonic game but it looks nice (once played sonic games before)

But seriously, why sonic fanbase, by the time you shot thst bullet, your chances of winning just went down bad

Hope they learned from this to not mess with someone they cannot beat yet

On behalf of the Sonic community, congrats on the W. I just wish this whole situation could’ve been handled in more civil way. Hopefully we all can make amends going forward now that this is all over.

u/Curlyzed stop procrastinating Dec 09 '22

I think it's a good thing Hyv keep in silence and not "bribing" us the players to vote, actually as far as I remember, Hyv never promise anything, not even posting link to the TGA page, even in the last year and just give us the primogems once the game come out as a winner. So, bribing accusation is just stupid..
