Zhongli in Genshin Impact is still the main concern
The controversy surrounding the theme of Zhongli in Genshin Impact is still the main concern of gamers. And recently Mihoyo made a new move about buffing Zhongli.
Specifically, recently on Reddit there have been a few articles about Zhongli’s Q skill change. Accordingly, the owner of this article is a player on the EU server. He discovered that Zhongli’s Q stat was slightly buffed from 3 seconds to 4 seconds.
At first glance, he thought this was a bug, but when tested, Q’s petrified time was 4 seconds. And after many checks, this player sure that Miohyo changed Zhongli’s Q.
At the same time, another player has the same experience as Q Zhongli is 4 seconds same as previous post. Furthermore, this character reveals that if they raise the endowment skill from 6 to 7. Then, the petrification duration will increase from 4.5 to 5 seconds. And that is also the maximum milestone in the par 0. The petrification time will increase to 7 seconds if the player reaches the 4th par for Zhongli.
This news immediately received a lot of attention from the Genshin Impact gaming community. Many people expressed their joy because Mihoyo finally made a compromise and buffed the power of Zhongli. Others are still doubting the story when only a few people on the server have such a problem. They think maybe it’s just a bug that happened in the game and will be fixed soon.
Among the countless numbers of opinions and hypotheses, there is a most convincing opinion. A player thinks that Zhongli’s Q has been increased to petrified time is not a bug at all. But an experimental form of the game under the name AB test.
According to research, AB test (/B Testing also known as split testing or bucket testing) is a method to compare between 2 versions of webpage or certain application, from there to find out which version is effective. better. They used a statistical analyze to determine which variation performs better for a given conversion goal. You can then collect data about the effectiveness of those changes. By measuring the variation in your metric, you can ensure that every change has positive results.
Accordingly in this case, they will randomly selected some players by Mohoyo to test Zhongli’s modified Q version.
They watched these players throughout the game. Finally, Mihoyo will send them a survey on the evaluation of the edits so that the publisher can make a final decision.
If these are true then this is a necessary and timely action for Mihoyo to pull back the player and stabilize the situation. There will certainly be more work they need to do with the character Zhongli if they want to truly ease players’ anger and especially the Chinese market where Zhongli is the Chinese representative. In addition, we will have a discussion on version 1.2 of Genshin Impact and there is a high possibility that there will be information about the revision of Zhongli.
