The male characters look fine but the female ones are even worse than in Genshin Impact, Mihoyo just seems to be utterly incapable of creating female designs that aren't just a bargain bin rehashed Honkai coomershit. The playable male ratio seems to be closer to 25% than 40% too. The animations and the visuals look pretty cool though, if they just removed the waifus I would be interested.

>Thread #1
Very bold. Why did this even need its own thread that will die when it could have been discussed in the mobage thread?

The male characters look just as mid as the ones in Genshin. And Genshin characters are carried by being in a game with gameplay very unique from other mobile gachas. If you want a turnbased game with hot guys, don't waste your time with a Mihoyo game because there is a sea of superior options out there.

I will probably try it out, I likest most male designs. There are only a few females one that I like, some of them have a specific design element that female genshin characters also have (armpits out, thigh strap, knee high socks) that makes a bit irritated. Hopefully there will be more girls that I actually like. With Genshin I chose Lumine to play but for Star Rail I will probably choose the guy. I really don't like the skirt and thigh strap the fmc is wearing and I like to self-insert with female characters but I would never wear something like that.

I haven't actually counted recently but the last time I did it looked like Starrail does its character m:f ratio basically the same as Genshin, meaning the five star banners are approximately even but four stars are heavily skewed female

Anyway, I can see how anyone who's a lover of the genshin manlets wouldn't be looking at this game with much anticipation, but as someone who wishes genshin wasn't so full of very young looking guys, this game looks great for husbando collecting to me. I'm only really worried that the gameplay grind of it may be too much of a chore long term. I don't mind genshin dailies because I find genshin combat actually fun, but something turn based? We'll see ig

>no hoyo bootlicker

my ass. genshit is one thing but an unremarkable turnbased rpg gacha is not a groundbreaking, top of the line experience no other f2p mobage has done (better) before. the autistic urge to resist change is limiting your scope to the company that made your special interest game. I'll let you in on a little secret: most mobile gacha games are f2p turnbased rpgs! some have characters that don't look ai generated, some have a surplus of female writers resulting in a story that isn't dogshit, and some even pander to women exclusively, not to men with the occasional stiff anime nigel to tide over the cucked female playerbase once or twice a year. a novel concept, I know.

That behavior is coming from a place of not only jealousy over a fictional scrote but genuine homophobia and misogyny, no matter how strong your vendetta against fujos is it's disgusting to support or even simply feel vindicated by it.

I went into the game expecting nothing because I wasn't really interested in getting into another waifu gacha, but I actually like it more than Genshin so far.

Thanks for the link! I thought it wasn't going to be that fun when I heard it's not open world but tbh it feels just like open world, just using teleport more instead of walking long distance. The combat in the livestream seemed complicated too but playing it, it's pretty to get a hold of all the character skills. One thing I dislike it how quickly enemy shields are regenerated but I feel like it's not gonna be a big issue once we start building characters. I like it so far and will probably keep playing it.

So far from what I've seen, it seems to have better writing than genshin. Also it has some actually funny tidbits, like MC being obsessed with trash cans. In genshin the humour is very paimon-centric and we know paimon is insufferable, but here it has some really hilarious stuff, like the references to the metaverse kek. I expected march to be annoying, like paimon but she's pretty decent so far. Both her and danheng are very cliche and trope-y , but I can tolerate them and I enjoy the found family aspect. Kafka reminds me too much of makima tbh, but her design is cool. The problem is that most female characters don't look very memorable, I've seen some of the new leaked girls and they all look so boring and have cluttered designs just like honkai (bonus giant boobs). March, kafka and FEMC are probably the best designed right now. As for husbandos, i really like jingyuan, blade and yanqing but I'm not very interested in the rest (or any of the other leaked guys). I wanted to reroll for yanqing at first but since I can already get him at 300 rolls I decided to go with the first account I made where I got bailu. She's a strong healer so she's gonna be useful. The battle system is a bit tiring though and I don't have a lot of patience for it, not a huge fan of turn-based RPGs

>>292362
>They finally stopped with the jelly boob physics, thank God
Kek I noticed that too, they really toned down the animation. Some of the female characters designs I don't like, Bronya and Pela both look like they dont have any pants. However there are also some very cute female character designs. I really like Herta and Asta. The dialogue def is a lot better, it helps that we don't have a character like Paimon who just repeats everything and the female characters indeed have more personality then in genshin.

>>292479
>>292480
No problem and yeah I agree with the fact that enemy shields regenerate pretty quick. The dog is indeed so cute! and yes it feels like it's still openworld for me since the closed off worlds are just so bigg!

Kek I really like how the MC has so much personality. I can understand that if you don't like turn based that it might be tiring to play this.

It might be random but anybody else find the size difference between the characters, specifically the women, to be utterly jarring? Its not my first mihoyo/honkai rodeo but its the first time im playing a honkai game on my pc and i couldnt stop comparing character models in the game and wheezing

No. 292521

>>292519
not sure if this is what you mean but I think it's great that the short women model look like grown women actually. They're taller than GI model for short women/teenager. Only Herta's model stands out to me (and others who share her model if there's more, I dont have them yet) but I just take her robot thing as a child model anyway. I even like npc models way more compared to GI, they all have different clothes and all even though they share the same model. Even children look less uncanny valley kek and the playable children (Bailu) are the same size as npc children, they dont have the huge head syndrome GI has either. I think SR's models are a real upgrade to GI, can't compare it to Honkai Impact though.
Unrelated but I love how truly alive cities feel in SR. Npcs are just randoms minding their business as opposed to GI where if you can talk to an npc, they're just there to lead you to a game mechanic or say one specific thing about the city/world. I love the attention to detail, I was mesmerized when I saw/heard the guitar playing girl.

I really hate how just like the genshin sub reddit this one is filled with moids sexualising the female characters. I feel like the only place where it doesn't happen is here, so i hope this thread won't die. Do you guys know any other place for star rail that isn't filled with moids?

>>292876
Once you are a higher level you can grind very easy for character materials. Unlike genshin where you have to wait certain days till a domain is open to enter it, you don't have that here. Also you can use the speed up and auto button so that in a few minutes you have used your "resin". This makes it a lot less grindy then genshin imo. My advice would be to focus on leveling a few characters that you like and raising there traces (talents). The relics you get in the beginning are very bad so its not worth to level them. With the light cones i would advice to level the lvl 4 ones and above.

In my experience with genshin, twitter is its own hell, gendies have the rule over there and none of them even seem to be reading anything in the game (main story included), they just complain about what they see others complain about and sometimes thirst over their token female character while sounding like moids. There are still women who actually enjoy the game and wont attack you for your every opinion but they're hard to find, and I'm not sure if they're playing HSR at all.

I really like Female MC's design except for one tiny detail which triggers me immensely, which is the retarded blue stripe on her tight (rant incoming).
I already dislike how mihoyo constantly forces most of its female characters at least in genshin to have an element of "zettai ryoiki" with stupid looking thigh bracelet things, but why the fuck would they make it bright blue in a character whose palette is completely made of black, grey and gold? I like female mc's design other than that and I really love the colour cohesion, so it peeves me so much why would they fuck up the colour pallete like that with such and obviously bad choice. It also fucks up the focal point, it's like you're being forced to focus on her thigh (gross)

I haven't had much issue with character design in star rail and tbh "busy design" is just how mihoyo designs every character so eh but this one particular detail has me livid

I like most character designs except for the ones where it looks like the girls aren't wearing any pants (Bronya ect).

>>293135
I have the same issue, also the thigh bracelete thing also has like no use? Like maybe if it was actually used for like holding a weapon or maybe attaching a pocket to it i would understand. But I hate it so much when they give a female character that useless thingie. Like you said its just there so that people are forced to look at her thighs.

It doesn't really matter. It's highly likely that all the characters are going to get powercrept in the future anyway (some even by themselves since this game is adding alters), so just go for husbando > meta.

it feels like they're putting the layers they took off female characters onto male characters lol people are coping calling sampo a whore design but he has twice as much clothing on him as any other female character, including the children. the ideas for males wouldnt look so generic if they didnt feel the need to make every inch of their skin covered. yanqing is the most eye catching design so far and if his head wasnt so pretty and he had the bulky build of tall characters he would look still look like one of the halal husbandos. not that every character should strip but it would certainly help if they didnt treat males like they come out of the womb with ugly generic pants and three layers of jackets on. somehow the fanservicy designs of women give off more personality than the boring male designs

in the full descripton of the item it says "A slender yet strong hand once wore the other bracer.

I also want to know Blade/Dan Heng the most because I like Dan Heng too but the other connections have potential to be written well to create his personality and motives. Why is he following Kafka around and obeys her? What's with his friendship with Jingyuan? Also I think the stellaron hunters' dealings in Xianzhou are interesting, and JY/Blade understanding each other's motives could be an interesting reason why JY let him go. I agree with the Belobog vs Xianzhou part. We'll likely get similar stories to "slices of life before the furnace" series which I adored. After the main story in XZ finishes though, which I don't know when it will happen

i don't understand all the moralfagging related to ships? do you do the same with shipping tropes too like trying to say friends to lovers is more sophisticated than enemies to lovers kek. sounds very exhuasting. either way it's women writing all the fanfics and making the fanart.

i think the darker parts could have lended themselves to the ending of the Belobog arch a little better–considering Bronya's ultimate decision in regards to the Cocolia situation–but then i can see how rock cancer and hundreds of years of isolation, due to what i assume was the product of some flavor of religious zeal, could have been a little much for a game like this.

I like the more relaxed story to be honest. I think 10 years of the two parts of the city being sealed is a better choice because it would be too heavy to be solved so quickly if it was centuries. People actually remember each other the way it is now, otherwise it would be too complicated. The rock cancer reminds me of Arknights that has much heavier writing and actually has serious long standing conflicts in its story and yeah, it would be way too heavy for Star Rail imo. Add in the hatred being brewed for centuries between the citizens and it's just not a story fit to be told as your entrance to this magic world. We wouldn't be having the happy reunion cutscenes at the end because there would still be too many in-city conflicts and problems to be solved, which I think ended Belobog's story in a great note. Also I prefer Hook to be happy with her father. I think Mondstadt in Genshin was also more chill than other places, an easier introduction to the game seems to be working well to hook the player in without throwing you realistic political issues. The city would feel more hostile too and from my Genshin experience I still hate Inazuma because it feels so oppressive even after we fixed it. Also, again in the topic of Hook, she felt like a breath of fresh air and showed the life of the city. Children being children could be told as fun side stories because they weren't being treated as demons or seeing everyone die of rock cancer. I have a feeling Belobog will continue to be the place most players feel at home, other than the Express.

i've found it easiest to while away the time by keeping myself busy. if you haven't already, you could start farming relics for a decent build and mats for his levels and traces, and begin planning your team.
outside of in-game busy work, you could engage with the fandom side of the game, if you don't mind wading through a lot of bullshit. you could collect fanart of him that you like, draw him yourself, or start putting together a playlist inspired by him. if you're a writer, you could write about him.

>Seele–she certainly didn't crash any servers like our boy did

About her sales, they are high because they include all top ups including for the standard banner and the battle pass ect. Whales want to get all the standard characters so they drop a lot of money in the first patch, so those revenues are included in the random pictures that people have been sharing online about her supposely sales. So in summary her sales aren't actually that high in reality, so don't worry about trying to compare it since stuff like that is inaccurate. Sadly we have no accurate way of knowing how much a banner sales, but the fact that they made the server crash probably is a sign that indeed a lot of people are trying to get Jing Yuan!

sage for design character sperg but I found out why Clara is barefoot and it's the dumbest thing they could think of. I saw a theory saying that the reason she can walk around on snow no problem is due to her being experimented on by Vache for blizzard immunity which would at least make sense. But the reason is because "she isn't used to wearing shoes so she twists her ankles uwu" LIKE WTF. Just a fucking stupid reason to show a little girl's feet ig

Yes, she really messed up the tone at the end of the Belobog quest. I still feel Star Rail character writting is more entertaining than Genshin, but what the fuck was that about? You're supposed to be feeling sad about just seeing a character die and March doesn't wait a single second before going "that sure was some Trail Blazin heehee", ruined the mood with a single line

I still think March is miles better than Paimon though, because at least her and MC are allowed to be actual separate characters, instead of March being canonically glued to mc's ass cheeks for every single second

i feel u nonna. i think they’re trying to do something with blade / jing yuan / dan heng in terms of a big story judging by hints and leaks, but i’m so upset there won’t be any major lore updates till version 1.2… all the female characters so far feel like they can be described with a character stereotype like “protective big sister with a quirky hobby”, “a princess who just learned she’s been adopted into the royal family”, and kafka just reminds me of makima who i hate with a burning passion. i feel like only obnoxious pornsick moids are obsessed with spoiler and her. and it makes me so sad. i feel the same way about voicelines too… hopefully they’ll add on more & the whole blade’s past story will make sense too.

well luocha is pretty much just otto and his entire character is all about having oneitis for kallen, there's also welt who already has a wife in honkai and this isn't yet confirmed and i really hope i'm wrong but they keep talking about blade having a "beloved" and apparently they're using female pronouns and chinese fans were angry they're doing the same plotline again. not honkai but zhongli was implied to have oneitis for guizhong before they thankfully retconned a part of his backstory
it's kinda obvious that mihoyo writers just keep pushing the same trope again and again, apparently their writers think this is somehow peak writing and very romantic, even though the actual female fans made it obvious they are extremely tired of this shit

No. 299814

samefag but also i'm really annoyed by the fact that chinese female fans have told mihoyo times and times again that they don't want more husbandos like otto and mihoyo doesn't give a shit and constantly ignores them despite being one of their target audience. just because otto got popular thanks to his very special circumstances (being for a long time the only relevant male character in an all female game) doesn't mean it should be common for husbandos to have oneitis for other girls (who are always unplayable to not anger the male players kek)

>not honkai but zhongli was implied to have oneitis for guizhong
Not to hijack with Genshin lore but no he didn't, the Guizhong shit was entirely a runaway fanmade theory and based on a few excerpts from an item description that mentioned them having been friends in the past. They retconned nothing, the people who assumed they were lovers just because Zhongli received a gift from Guizhong were setting themselves up for disappointment to begin with when she was revealed to be a lesbian. Zhongli is a benevolent figure associated with many figures from Liyue lore, he also saved Xiao from his previous abusive owner and again his life during the Chasm event.

One of the reasons why I really can't seem to get into HSR or Honkai in general is that the male characters exist to be generic handsome knights for the female characters and have canon wives and lovers and shit. A lot of my friends unfamiliar with Honkai are getting so hyped for HSR and I know their hopes will be crushed once they realize Mihoyo still doesn't give a shit about their female players and Honkai is entirely a waifufag-based property. I'm just hoping Genshin will be more fujopandering now that everyone has moved on to the HSR bandwagon and they need to find new sources of revenue.

If all of these husbandos have canon love interests/dead obsessions then what even is the point?

No. 300120

>>300118
Yeah, they would not in a million years give waifu characters canon male love interests but for some reason they keep pairing male characters with NPCs and giving them dead lovers they can't get over from. Why? Do they actually think it's super attractive to have a bishounen lusting after a dead girl? Do they think female players find it appealing in some retarded "oh he's so devoted" way? I'm not even a yume but I find it ridiculous how much they don't respect the wishes of their female userbase and instead of giving them what they want they try to tell them what they should want. Or are the male characters actually meant as power fantasy self inserts for male players and they're given a dead girlfriend because it makes them super straight so that fujos can't ship them? Who knows what they're thinking.

No. 300154

>>300120
>Do they think female players find it appealing in some retarded "oh he's so devoted" way?
The thought crossed my mind and there really be some truth in it cause it happens so often and it's usually played as a tragic romance with the male hero carrying a candle for a woman he can never have and no one else can ever match up to.
In can be a compelling device in other forms of media but not in my chinese gacha dammit. They could be stupid enough to believe female players want to be cucked.

No. 300192

>>300120
I know some shoujos play with the reincarnation trope where the male love interest had a former lover who is now dead and he sees her soul in the new girl, but as corny as that trope is, this is a gacha game where a lot of stuff is kept vague on purpose. You can't heavily imply a husbando is hopelessly devoted to a dead girl and expect the audience to believe he'll also fall in love with the player/protag. And just because women like to see a tragic romance or one-sided pining in other media doesn't mean it's gonna work in a fucking gacha game where people just want to collect husbandos or waifus. It annoys me when honkaifags point out that the girls also have relationships, as if some fetishy yuri couples akin to cute girls doing cute things has ever threatened any waifufag kek. I do think there's some male self-insertion though, like dawei the ceo of hoyoverse dyed a streak of his hair white to look like welt and his favorite waifu has been himeko since forever. Although welt has a wife in another universe, he is put next to himeko in star rail. The company has female staff too, some in higher positions, and I lowkey blame them for this current husbando situation, since they probably gave the "ok" to other male staff that husbandos with oneitis are heavily attractive

1:1 life size doll… sometimes I forget the female weebs can be as obsessive as male weebs.

that's why i never liked honkai, it's basically a mishmash of the fantasies of the staff and they're very shameless about it. there's nothing wrong to be self-indulgent but once you target a particular audience you need to put their wishes first. they were more professional with genshin and it felt more player oriented and not just a staff member begging dawei to add their self-insert like in honkai. now star rail is something in between honkai and genshin cause they're more vague about character relationships, but they still follow the tradition of oneitis husbandos and tired expies from the other games like why do we have to see 50 different bronyas??

Lots of talking out their ass or relying on assuming you have the best of everything instead of talking practically.

eh let's be fair now, blade and kafka get way more marketing. yes lorewise blade is obsessed with danfeng he doesn't care much about kafka but hoyo forces this pair more on everyone's throats because it's easier to sell to a normie audience (girlboss femdom x broody edgy guy is popular now). it's a weird move because kafka just reads as waifubait in game but outside of it they're pushing this and cucking the fans. also unfortunately, regardless of his past with danfeng right now he is glued to kafka due to being part of their organization and danfeng is also glued to march…

IT'S ANNOYING because hoyoverse saw they're a hit and there aren't a lot of complaints, genshin fans remember the homophobic yume meltdowns when haikaveh was pushed but here it's just crickets. they'll continue putting lame hetships in the spotlight and give us just some small crumbs of fujo pairings on the side to keep their fujo audience. obviously this would never happen to their beloved bronya x seele….

people blew that whole "marriage" thing way out of proportion if you think they were married it was just one word that is also used to describe marriage ceremonies in one description, I agree that their interaction in the main content is very underwhelming, you have to read game descriptions and leaks if you want to understand their story fully but also we have to remember that the game cant be too overt in presenting them as a couple because of censorship.

Started playing this game, I can't take any of the female designs in the ice world seriouslybecause their outfits are so incongruous with the environment. Seeing Clara run around snow with bare feet physically hurts me and I can't wait to move on to the next world so that I can let my Clara free in normal conditions.
I guess this applies to Sampo as well but honestly… He has such a "bully me" personality that I sort of enjoy seeing him in clothes that would make him suffer in cold weather.
In other news, I got Kafka! I was initially turned off by her design because the disappointment of her design in particular falling prey to MHY's refusal to put women in real pants was too great, but I was sold on her within the first ten minutes of the game… She's too charismatic. Gonna ship my female trailblazer with her and choose not to go on any Star Rail related social media since I can tell every post about her will be the same ugly coomer whine of mommy shit.

I'm struggling to play the game simply because the female designs are so fucking bad. I came from Genshin and while people memed on those female designs a lot HSR went way further, every woman is wearing the most ridiculous shit ever. And it gets even worse in the China region, you get not one but two identical sexy fox girls. Kafka is possibly the only adult female character that's wearing real clothes instead of tattered lingerie and even she gets the mommy dommy treatment from everyone. It's like almost every female character is made around someone's fetish and sushang as that one female mihoyo employee's self insert like the aloof hacker lolis (two of them), foot fetish loli, elegant mommy bride, tomboy tsundere, ojousama, the engineer oneesan, literal dragon loli… I like the boys and the game in itself is enjoyable but god I feel like the only sober person in the room amongst those female designs. I guess the game's just not made for me.

I like March 7th, Kafka, and Stelle's designs (an uncoomerish and tall girl design feels like such a rarity). It's enough to get me to stay. But it's literally only those three. I'd include Clara as well, but her being barefoot is so clearly a fetish thing… A waste of a neat concept as I AM soft for her relationship with Svarog.
Some of the designs are genuinely unbearable to just look at. Like, I wish I could enjoy Bronya/Seele but I hate looking at them.
I wish it wasn't so hard to find a gacha that doesn't suck shit at least 50% of the time when it comes to female character design. The only one I can think of might be Lord of Heroes.

Women who unironically love coomer female designs perplex me. I can see thinking that they're cool and a female power fantasy being sexy and she's just like me if you squint really hard etc but how aren't they bothered by the obvious disparity between the sexualization of male and female characters? How aren't they offended by literally every female character being sexualized in some way, including little girls? Some of them are obvious NLOG pickmes who want to show they're not like those ugly fat feminists hating beautiful women and some of them are those weird ass mentally stunted yurifags who shit their pants in rage at the sight of a bishounen and only want more pornified moidgaze lesbians, but the people who don't fit either categories yet think Seele is peak female design are beyond my understanding.

It's so fucking hilarious that they pulled this TWO times in a row, Cocolia with Bronya and Yukong with her daughter, absolutely no shame. I guess they have to pander to the mommy fetish but still have to have the women remain virginal, and possibly have their daughter be fuckable as well. Honestly during the entire Belobog arc I was way too distracted by Cocolia walking around in her underwear to take her seriously as the "supreme guardian", and only facepalmed harder when Yukong came along. How the fuck come Jing Yuan is given an actually noble outfit showing his status and my lady Yukong is here dressed like a stripper with her thong out?

Her design would be so much better if she didn't have the traditional Mihoyo armpit&bared back fetish pandering.

What percentage of HSR text do you nonnas actually read? Right now I'm steamrolling content to get pulls and there's just so much text that I find myself skimming… But then I inevitably see something that catches my eye and makes me regret not reading, kek.
Not to be that obnoxious Genshin comparer, but on average I do actually find the writing in this game to be much more interesting, both in terms of the actual lore and simple entertainment value. I was genuinely surprised the first couple times sidequests actually had me feeling something even if I only read bits and pieces of them. The underground fighter who whittled away his health after losing his family, just for the sake of donating to Natasha's clinic so that he could somewhat fill the void left in him, made me emo.

I'm curious, what is everybody's favorite VA for Sampo? His performance varies a lot between the languages, and the English in particular seems to be polarizing with fans. I personally like the Korean the best, it has the right mix of attractive and pathetic sleaze to it for me.

I think most players that are not into the turn based combat style are feeling the same as you. I played that transportation event (assuming you meant it) and even though it was funny at times to see npcs being quirky, they really went all out with the amount of text for no reason. We could have short conversations and still get the job done. It took hours just to get through the story and even the "gameplay" took longer than it should have. When it comes to the main story and worldbuilding of the Loufu, so far I didn't see anyone enjoy it as much as the other two. The million governmental bodies don't interest anyone. I also wish they just got its story done with. Hopefully we go to a smaller place next time and it gives a similar feeling to the first two where even talking to npcs felt engaging and fun instead of making me roll my eyes at all of them having one trait and not being memorable at all.

I feel like HSR has the problem of all games written by and for autistic men, instead of making the characters interesting (something you should do in a character based gacha game) they focus on a ton of worldbuilding that amounts to a subpar buildup but requires you to memorize so much fucking in-game politics, lore and terminology going into such small rambling detail that it feels like you're studying for a test. I'm a fan of turn-based combat but the one HSR has just isn't very good, not being able to use items is an issue since if one of your characters is instakilled, then you essentially have to redo the entire battle which sucks a cock because they take forever to finish and feel grindy. It's not even a hard game, the fighting system just isn't very satisfying or rewarding so it feels tedious. It's just pressing a button over and over again while other turn-based games have more character-specific skills and features to utilize.

Wow, Topaz was terrible. I love her.
Hoyo games (Genshin and Star Rail at least) usually have such clear delineations re: who is good/likable or bad/unlikable that it was refreshing to get a character who sort of sucks ass in such a real-world way.
I have low expectations of Hoyo writing in general so the discrepancies in her writing don't really bother me, she was fun. Will be rolling.

They could have done literally anything with a space concept in this game but they just choose to release generic Chinese woman #1-100 for a year straight kek. I'm pretty much done with it

Sadly they're not good enough to make up for the shit-tier female designs. They literally copy-pasted the same dress and re-colored it for so many girls, and we're getting even more xianzhou girls in the same damn dress. Billion dollar company and this is what they put out. It's honestly pathetic.

i've been trying to get back into this game, i gave it a try when it launched but grew bored fast. i wanted to come back because my friend told me she expects inbibitor lunae to run again, so i decided to quest to save crystals for him but god the dialogue is awful and i don't get the main character's motives at all. it's like, something is missing from the game, it feels kinda soulless. idk, maybe i'm nitpicking, but i just cannot get into this even to i want to.

Saw clips of Dr Ratio and got really interested but when I wanted to play his story in the game it told me to play 936725 other quests and I had to give up. Now I understand why people want a skip button. I want to only play the parts where hot guys have ego trips. They started to make interesting male characters too late for a game with shitty story and no other saving grace.

Maybe there are recordings on youtube? You're right though, Hoyoverse storytelling is too boring and slow-paced to not have a skip button. Not to mention that the plot is usually not focused on the characters so sitting through hours of bullshit just to see a few lines feels like a total waste

for me it's the gacha grind, I can tolerate a boring story if there are at least a few characters that I like, but the gameplay is too uninteresting to play it every day.

So true, not even my all-consuming need to see Sampo get wrecked and destroyed can get me to endure the dozens of hours of performative nothing Hoyo games ask you to do for basic progression.

In all honesty you can tell when the moid Honkai head writer took over when the story gets so fucking autistic and sloggish and turns into a boring ass space opera going absolutely nowhere and treating its characters as plot devices instead of developed personalities. Xianzhou Luofu was probably the worst written Mihoyo story I've ever read, on par with Inazuma, with a rapid fire introduction of a billion characters you never get to know, a ton of confusing shit happening at the same time and none of those substories came to a conclusion and everything was left open ended in a very unsatisfying way. Literally nobody that I have met could tell what the fuck was the point of that stupid story chapter and I think the writer had no idea either, he just wanted to show off all the "cool" concepts that he had in his mind. The event/interlude stories have been much more coherent and interesting and Penacony started off much better so there's still hope. I think.

The gameplay in Star Rail is so bad though. I'm glad they included the autoplay mechanic but what's the point in playing it when the games do it for you? The combat isn't rewarding because it's a pay2win scenario and the battles are so annoying to get through, especially for a husbando player since every single male character that gets released is Imaginary element and even for the waifufag in me I hate the female characters and how they all wear ugly lingerie instead of real clothes.

I played the game when it first came out and instantly fell in love with this idiot.
I dropped off the game after about 2 months though because the 3rd area you go to is so fucking boring.
Supposedly Sampo has more screentime in the more recent patches, but I just can't be bothered.
