    I don't think any amount of Sumeru hype will lower Kazuha's banner. He's getting a story quest, better than average weapon banner, one of the best supports in the game and we won't have any "offical" sumeru info until after his banner ends. Yoimiya seems to have aged better as well. Yunjin, Thoma, Yelan etc. she's got a lot more synergies now. I'm gonna be optimistic about her banner

      Same I was actually pulling yelan (of course she was evading my wishes) but then my last 5pulls I did xiao and i didn't expect him to come home because I had just win a 50/50 of venti before him and also didn't had anything prepared for him but my build end up being pretty damn solid because I had blackcliff which I bought for some reason and my unlucky luck which went into ventis crit piece (just give me em ;-;) so he had good attack and i was able to level his kit up pretty quick from spare materials also got diluc some days after from standard

    I think it's also important to note that one of the things that made people pull for Kokomi more is the fact that people didn't realise how good she was as Hydro application in her first banner and it was only after the banner ended that people started to realise just how versatile her kit is, especially in freeze and taser teams.

      This is why you pull based on your playstyle and not hype, i got her during her first banner because my team badly needed a healer and barbara was not built yet, i was around 30ish AR too. but she came like a fresh bag of gold just givin to you, and now my team has been pretty immortal every since. and i already had klee, so you can imagine how fun this set up is.

      @Sui Sui Indeed. I pulled for her just because I loved her design (only reason I pull for any character tbh), but given one of my mains is Ayaka, she's become one of the most useful characters for me. Plus she's the best character to use in the overworld as she just makes all healing food redundant and makes travelling over water easier. It really is a shame how overlooked she is.

    A thing to note about Kokomi's initial run, on top of the reasons you mentioned, is that it also coincided with Genshin's notorious 1 year anniversary, in which players were... less than happy and far less likely to spend money on the game.

      ​@Freestyle I am so sorry my dude for replying so late, but it was quite literally the worst backlash genshin has ever gotten. Review bombs were happening on all of mihoyo's games, and even some unrelated apps. VAs were harassed. Genshin discord servers has to be censored. The response was so bad, mihoyo felt the need to make the $30 pack for the concert a free thing to give away to everyone, for damage control. I even clearly remember they didn't even have time to make the message from "P.A.I.M.O.N." They deadass just said "Genshin Operations Team."
      I'd think that's a bit more than 10% of the playerbase being mad. Maybe only a "few" did the bad things, but that doesn't mean the overwhelming majority felt no negativity. Just because you didn't, doesn't mean 90% of the player base is like you. Kinda cute you would assume something like that though.

I don't deny there must've been some hollow players who ignored all of that, but a lot of players were heavily involved (seeing the programs, making content, consuming said content, etc) to not take it so lightly as a casual (who almost never spends or spends too little)

    Another problem with Kazuha is that the Archon quest featured him, as he was following us around, but they never let us play him in the open world with our characters, so many people didn't feel confident in using primos on him when a lot of cute girls where around the corner.

    A couple things I think could have been included:
    - Zhongli being very hyped up probably brought the earnings up, even though he was really bad.
    - Raiden had a very powerful C2 which caused many players to spend 3x as much as for a normal character (+C3 and her weapon being also powerful for her).
    Oh wow, I didn't think Ayaka would get Nr. 1 because of the other 3 weeks. I find it so weird how people are constantly spending hmm

    Also keep in mind that the data changes depending on country and platform. For example, CN banner sales tend to correlate close with a characters power level/utility where JP banner sales more closely follow how much people like a character design and personality.

    I think the bigger factor in some of the failed banners. keqing, Kokomi, Yoimiya, and Klee rerun was mostly due to all content creators saying they were bad and in the case for kokomi specifically they didn't even want to wish on their banner but were "forced" to since they wanted to make content and whale for them.
    they constantly dogged on her even after she got the artifacf set and for her rerun they let off a little as to not cause another uproar of VA hate like they did in the first run.

    Fun fact: Why Childe was seemingly randomly in a banner in his first rerun at 1.4 during the Windblume Festival, was because it was the 11th banner since release.
    Edit: First of all, wtf 3,2k likes??
    Second of all, to people doubting: Childe was originally released on the 11th day of the 11th month on patch 1.1. And of course, he is the 11th harbinger. So I don't think it's a coincidence that his rerun was on the 11th banner.
    Some people have also pointed out that 1.4 was the patch when we first saw the hydro abyss herald, who has a similar fighting style as Childe, so there's some connection to the patch.

      ​@hausofsexual you know, with people like you, Tartaglia could release at 11 November 2011, at 11:11, and a signature weapon called the 11 divine stars, with a story quest called 11 horned whale and limited event "11 spices of Liyue," rerunning 11 banners later also at 11:11, and you would still call it a coincidence, or that we're reading too much into it.

    Zhongli was only buffed due to Chinese comunity revolt: They kept spamming invoice requests to Mihoyo (In China, is required by law that if a consumer requests a invoice of a digital purchase the company must provide it within a certain amount of time) and CN community is the biggest income for Mihoyo
    11:20 - Ayaka was also a very long waited character due to beta
    12:18 - And again Yoimya is getting her rerun.... right before Sumeru's archon release
    13:52 - writting was rushed for that part of the story. There is a rumor part of the story team just left Mihoyo due to dissagrements with direction of the story which made Mihoyo desperate to complete the story. THe livestream that showcased her was very cringy, you could tell the voice actors were following a script and they had to act positively surprised when it was announced that she couldn't crit
    14:57 - LMAO I remember people theorizing that Hu Tao appearance was a omen to Childe's death

    Raiden also had a pretty big community of fans coming from Honkai Impact and her similarities with Raiden Mei's character Herrscher of Thunder which was the most powerful lightning dps in the game at that time added more to the hype. Yae also has her counterpart in Honkai Impact and the huge difference between Yae Miko and Yae Sakura both in terms of gameplay and character turned the fans off for a bit, and that has been reflected in sales numbers

    predicting that kazuha’s rerun might be on the top or average, even if sumeru is next Kazuha’s rerun was the most requested and awaited rerun, everyone had been waiting for him (me also lol) he’s like the most used character in spiral abyss. Considering the fact that many people did skip him and now regret it also due to inazuma’s release, his constellations are also pretty good with the EM bonus. Kazuha also had many story quests appearances lately and finally and his new own story quest, his story is pretty interesting

      It's not just the c2. Raiden is a bad ass character design wise and Mihoyo gave her a banger demo that lives up the hype for her. That time she's the 1st character/archon that really gives that "God Tier" vibes. Probably due to her story narration and stance in the lore. People likes that and mihoyo knows that. Raiden is mihoyo's fave char they really set up everything perfectly for her debut.

    Something else with Childe specifically is that people just don't know how to use him. They just see a long cooldown and think he's not that good. I literally just pulled for him cause I thought he was funny, I didn't even know what weapon he used when I decided I wanted him (I was decently new lol). Learning how to play around the cooldown, even with c1, is something you have to actually learn and for a lot of people that's just not worth the time when there's so many other options. And now that Ayato exists, I think it just hurts Childe more.

Sadly Hoyo never made another character as hard as Childe anymore and make braindead broken chars like Ganyu and Kazuha.

      Exactly. As a long-time Childe main, it drives me crazy when I see someone activate his elemental skill and then just let it run all the way to the 30 seconds cap even after the fight is over. Plus, at first, a lot of people didn't understand that the Riptide effect is part of his damage output. Even now, there are still jokes and complaints about his "long cooldown," and I honestly am not sure what to make of the "Childe doesn't crit" jokes.
      He's still a really nice unit with a very short ICD for Hydro application, so he can stay relevant as we get more characters who add elemental damage from off field.

    Yoimiya is such a great character it’s kinda disappointing to see how bad her banners always do. I know people just think she’s “Inazuma Amber” but Yoimiya is one of my favs and I honestly couldn’t care less for Amber so I don’t get it 😭… I love her personality and design and the fireworks theme is really fun. I used to use her elemental skill with Beidou’s burst to do some pretty good overcharged damage but now that I have Yelan, I use her burst instead for vaporize reactions. I also also have Yunjin on the team for an attack buff and I’m still trying to figure out a 4th character. I was thinking Bennett because I love him but Yunjin and Yelan both have a passive that increases their health and defense respectively the more different elements you have on the team and since I already have a Pyro, I’ll probably switch him out. I mean I don’t have their constellations high enough to unlock those passive but maybe in the future lol.. maybe there will be a Dendro support that will work well with Pyro and Hydro so I can just pop off with elemental reactions like crazy

    Kazuha also suffered due to the community being DPS focused and not caring about support capabilities...

    Some of the banner fails like Kazuha and Kokomi has something to do with the doompost people kept posting before their release (Kazuha with C6 Sucrose, Kokomi with -100 crit and 5 star Barbara). Others have already pointed out Raiden's C2 but there was also the fact that she was seen as the first DPS Archon since Venti and Zhongli were generally viewed as supports. With the amount of people begging for a Kazuha rerun, I actually expect him to be at least within top 5 because most players saving for him would go as far as C1 - but then there's the Sumeru leak which could potentially cut the spending spree of others

      @blep exactly, my dude. They weren’t praising Kazuha, because Sucrose at the time wasn’t even considered in the top 5 back in 1.6 with fewer characters released. Hardly anyone used her, she’s only recently been referred to as a top meta character.
      Now that Kazuha’s considered one of the best characters, those people try to gaslight us by rewriting history. By the way, these are the same people who complain about not wanting powercreep. But, when a character releases and doesn’t break the game balance, they deride the 5 star banner with their smug “hardcore” 4-star elitism. TenTen is funny and makes good videos. It’s his followers that take his memeing as gospel that they’ll go out of their way to remind you that Sucrose, Xingqius and XIANGLING exist whenever some 5 star is released, and explain how the new 5 star will underperform etc.

    2 things to note - at the beginning of the game, keqing was considered meta, which would partly explain her not total banner failure. also, childe's banners did not sell so well because content creators pushed out the (true) idea he was heavily con dependent which discouraged players from pulling. i also think zhongli sold so well because of the hype for him - everyone unapologetically simped for him, so even if his kit was weak as hell, people pulled bc. they simped.

      @Lala While it's true, but the character you mention pretty much meta characters and it's impossible to make everyone fill the meta ladder. As long as a character has role, the chara is considered success. Example, Rosaria can be DPD or sub dps and Sayu is being used a lot because of how fun her playstyle, her passive and being 4* anemo healer.
      The one who is in really bad spot is chara with hybrid build like Thoma and Xin Yan.

    In Yoimiya's case, well I know that she now performs really good in a team with geo resonance with Zhongli (as a shielder), Yun Jin (boosts her normal attacks) and Yelan (hydro-applier better than Xingqiu). I guess her first banner could not be such a success because of the lack of characters that could make her stronger (Yun Jin and Yelan being released later).

Lots of people went for her rerun despite already having her because her c1 is very useful, and the same thing goes for Kazuha. So people who missed out on Kazuha might wanna go for him now, and people who want his c1 will go for him too

She was supposed to be a well-intentioned but flawed ruler, whose decisions had a negative impact on her country and could be explained because of her past trauma. Instead, Mihoyo pulled the "Bad Fatui were behind everything" card to portray her as an innocent waifu for the fans. Her first story quest isn't that bad now but at the time, we didn't have the second part. Coming right after the end of the main quest, it was disappointing to spend half the quest watching her eat dangos and make fun of light novels when many problems about Inazuma were unresolved.

    and on accident since i was tryna get bennett so i could have a healer that didnt freeze me infinitely resulting in me spamming spacebar infinitely more
    i am so glad i got him his attacks are so fluid hes so easy to build(even though im running him as quickswap dps not as support but support kazuha is so easy to build, literally just get iron sting/black iron sword a 4viridescent with em on everything and bam hes done)
    and i love his character, i got him triple crowned a while ago and when the update drops im playin his story quest instantly and [data removed due to it being leaks]
    loved his moment in 2.1 archon quest even if i didnt like the story from it in general but still was enjoyable to see him parry raiden's slash and activate his friends dead vision.
    just such a good character, enjoyed his appearance in the floral zither event(who actually remembers that thing lmao) and in the irodori festival, the reveal of his family making the sword raiden uses seemingly ties into what happens with his story quest and his father meeting scaramouche was amazing
    i think they realized how badly they messed up with kazuha and spent this past year trying to fix it
    i will keep the jade cutter i pulled for him on him even if looks awful on him(the black sword looks great on him but having a 77/184 ratio kazuha is too nice and seeing those 40k slashes is perfection)
    hoping everyone who wants him does end up getting him and that i get a qiqi while going for heizou so i can have her and guarantee zhongli since im not really interested in sumeru

    Something that is very interesting about the Ayaka banner is, think about it. The extension of the update wasn't revealed untill nearly the end. There are usually players who give up on spending their primogems for the character in question nearing the end of the banner, and people who decide to skip due to Genshin's lack of free rewards and wanting that character and one that is coming later, forcing them to make a decission. By extending the update, those who had given up and had no primogems were inclined to spend to get their desired character, and the people who were on the fence, decided to spend so they could have both characters while saving up the free rewards for the extension of the update. Win - win. That's why Ayaka got another 10m dollars.

    a huge reason that characters may not do as well in simply because the 4 stars mihoyo pairs with them. I do believe yelan and xiao would have had more people wishing for them, had they maybe put bennett or any character whose constellations are harder to get, as many people already have a c6 noelle or/and barbara. ik fischl is getting her much needed re-run in kazuha and klee's banner, and adding on kazuha is a very sought out unit, the banner will definitely do extremely well.
    so many factors determine how well a character does, including the voice actor, playstyle, how they look, ect..

    I started Genshin around Yae Miko's baner, honestly I think she is underrated, she of course isn't in the same level of Raiden Shogun, but I think she is very valuable considering she is one of the unique characters that can hit the enemy with her burst no matter how high they are, for example against Oceanid i always pick Yae Miko because she can deal with the flying birds of water much easier than a character with a bow. I just wished for her because she is a fox tho🤷‍♂️

      She is the highest damage single target off field dps in the game. She is a better sub DPS than Raiden. [Spoilers] She is also the true Electro Archon Makoto if you actually follow the story properly. (Ei's job is to be her body double, Yae being over 100 years old means she is a 9 tailed kitsune and thus omniscient (all knowing), just like the god of moments/the present is) and yae likes to shapeshift into a regular inazuman woman to walk the streets just like Makoto (both shapeshifters). Yae is a compulsive liar with all the same personality traits who also does not have a real vision. She is again another retired archon following with the tradition, and she also possessed the gnosis. I don't think I need to explain any further about her powers and the massive amulets all the other archons wore- even down to the fact Ei thinks she could not hit Yae if she tried- an easy matter for the god of the present.
      Mihoyo essentially screamed this at us but not many people seemed to notice.

      @Paul C Yae is the highest damage single target off field dps in the game. She is very broken with off field buffs. She does 3x more damage than Albedo and does not sacrifice normal attack and has a completely broken burst.
      Yae attacks just under once a second. Oz attacks are almost irrelevantly slow, all her damage comes from Undone be thy sinful hex, which relies on an extremely high number of reactions and is only useful against group targets, which makes fischl sort of redundant- Beidou is by far the superior 2 or more opponents off field DPS (and she gives both a shield AND reduces damage taken significantly, and has greater range). Fischl also has a terrible burst that leaves her vulnerable and only fixes her skill) whereas Yae's is extremely overpowered.
      Example of 2 hilichurls lvl 87 with no substats plain kits, Fischl + polar star) does 2,400 per second on average with oz (one hit every 2 seconds) Assume reaction every 2 seconds, lightning smite does 2,000 per second, assuming average of 3 hits per second and hitting both (generous) + 4500. That is a shade under 9,000 DPS.
      Compare to Beidou en recharge/severed fate with 5 star claymore who does 25,000 DPS during burst against multiple opponents and a 37% damage reduction. Consider cooldown that is still well over 19,000 DPS.
      This isn't to say fischl is bad but requires a lot of enemies and to be used if you require the electro mass reapplication from sinful hex (no cooldown)
      Yae (c0) however is the single target and consistent queen at around 10k per second (assume 7,600 average hit and 3 foxes attacking every 2.3 seconds), plus she has her burst separately, and has no team requirements. Fischl is around ~3,600 for a single target dps (at best)
      Then you add the ease of her off field buff. Pyro resonance, +25% attack, Milelith +20% noblesse + 20% and then each point of em gives her +.15% dmg bonus (eg kazuha +200 would give her +30% dmg plus +up to 40% he could give her)
      Then you see the sky is the limit with Yae, completely consistent, attacks every 0.76 seconds which is why the damage seems low, because nobody respects DPS in genshin it seems. You can use a gladiators+beserker on her if you want her cheap to get that damage, or even run her as mileliths for the attack buff if you need that to fit her in the team.
      Just so long as you are using off field DPS- fischl is better and more consistent than most sub DPS as they give you longer with a main DPS- despite the extensive requirements to her being decent.
      The main takeaway is not which is better, fischl/beidou/yae but that off field dps is very powerful. Except poor albedo who in this scenario does 3,700 DPS like fischl but does NOT scale up like she does with more enemies AND does not trigger at all if they have shields.

      My favorite thing about Yae Miko is that she trivializes literally any domain or boss that isn't immune to Electro (looking at you Severed Fate domain). You just spam out the turrets and dodge attacks until they kill everything. But I, sadly, remember the "leaks" that said she was gonna be an Electro Ganyu and its safe to say, she definitely was not that lol.

      @Vulpes Completely agreed, providing similar single target damage to Fischl along with a great AoE nuke is very underrated as well. Hopefully Dendro will enhance her strengths.
      Yae does feel bad to use when she's contesting for field time with other characters but in Ayato/Kokomi taser teams she feels right at home. She's slso comfier to use in the overworld due to unlimited E charges, and her damage bolts not being interrupted by terrain.

    I think what this collection of insight proves, is that hype needs time, and characters that are well-established before their premiere will do much better by tendency, especially when their roles in the story are sufficiently centralized. Ayaka was the most wanted character from the beta since she was the only one missing from it after release, so she had almost a year of hype building up. Then, her rerun came with the many observations made after her initial release, cementing her as one of the most powerful cryo characters to go for, and some folks would grow impatient during the Shanghai lockdown and pull for her at that point - everything worked perfectly in her favor.
    On the other hand, out-of-nowhere characters whose power and/or relevance is suddenly played up, tend to annoy a good number of players. For instance, Eula was more vocally disliked for being one-note, and not having any build-up worth the claim that she's on equal footing with THE Dandelion Knight, Jean - and that's not taking her lack of elemental coverage into account. I feel like the same issue contributed towards Kokomi being unconvincing as a worthy opponent to Raiden Shogun, only going face to face with a literal electro simp, and barely edging out a victory.
    I'm certainly curious on how well Kazuha's rerun will go. He's currently sitting as the top elemental support in the game, and he had a lot of spotlight to himself far after his banner, so the outlook should be fairly positive. Klee is probably gonna lag behind for all the reasons you already mentioned, but Yoimiya, I fear, might just take a big L, seeing how general views on her have only worsened as one of the most poorly-desinged 5* DPS units in the game, alongside Yae.

    Overall good, but there is one important thing you didn't mention in the video, which is the player base is actually growing consistently in the east (mainly China and Japan) That's why the recent banners are all generally out performing the earlier ones, and why the yelan banner are topping in Japan, whereas in the West neither the recent Ayaka banner nor the Yelan banner was performing well, cause the potential player base in the West is probably smaller compared to the east and there weren't many new players trying out Genshin.

    One of the things I noticed is that the character banners all had different stages of Genshin love and controversy. If you look at some of the things that were going on behind the scenes, you can see that there was a period of time in which a lot of players stopped playing, including whales. I personally had a ragequit moment during Yae Miko's banner, but I know that some of the controversy surrounding miHoYo contributed to at least two of my friends (and one of my favorite Twitch streamers) who frequently played the game taking an extended hiatus.

I suspect that Raiden wasn’t supposed to be the 2.1 banner character but she was pushed forward in time for the primogem pack reset, and then the 2.1 story had to be hastily rearranged to end on a good note for Raiden instead of arching over to 2.2. Just a theory though.

      They made a big mistake in restricting the build possibilities of a 5 star character and simplifying the mechanics. Crits are entirely overrated as only complete whales really make use of it for most builds, but they are absolutely a favourite of players. Some I know go all in crit damage with 10% even crit rate just because they like the biggest number and don't care about dps or anything like that. Couple that with the fact that although healing was the most necessary aspect to add at the time, most players hate healing. Even Qiqi is still derided despite being one of the better dpses now with the addition of clam and the way clam damage ignores armour and the best healer in the game.
      In some sense the issue was they wanted her to differ from mona.

      And as a consequence of that, the story in 2.1 ended up rushed, with most of the characters doing nothing.

    Kazuha's original banner was the reason why I spent money on Genshin, I am so glad that I actually wanted him from the moment I saw him

    I started just as 1.6 was starting and 1.5 was ending and Kazuha was my first limited banner 5 star (I liked him cause he was pretty) and I'm happy with him, I'm going for Klee in 2.8 as I couldn't get her last time

    It's all about the hype, they made kazuha rerun 13 months after his first release, they made so much hype for him and definitely gonna bomb the sales

    With 3.0 closing in on us, and the amount of upcoming characters that I love the designs for (*cough all of them cough*) plus being on my guarantee 5*, I'm holding off on wishing until I know who is going to be on the first banner. I have 50 wishes stockpiled since Yelan's banner, and knowing I've only won a single 50/50 out of 5, I'm not taking any risks despite really wanting Heizou. T-T I so hope he ends up being migrated into the 4* pool for Sumeru, because I'm already missing out on Kuki, and missing out on another just feels like a massive slap to the face.

    Early on fire was huge. Pyro characters were in huge demand due to how Abyss worked and the available Pyro characters at the time were Benett (who technically is a buffbot and not an actual character), Amber, Diluc and Xiangling so unless you were super lucky on standard banner your only pyro was xiangling. Basically making Klee a no brainer. Nevermind that melt/vaporize are top tier.

    As someone who has joined relatively recently (2.4) I really enjoy these deep dives into the history of the game and what has happened on all fronts

    If my speculation is correct Kazuha's banner would definitely be above average since we got so much exposure from his story in the past few updates, he was a trial character in every event, and he's finally getting his own story quest on this update. I think Kazuha might have one of the highest exposure (be it from events, or story, and just the general community talking about him) from a character as of right now aside from Zhongli.
