Reddit user riridouluvme shared the results of an interesting poll in which Genshin Impact players chose characters they regretted after filming. At the top of the list is one of the recently released characters, which is Cyno. Cyno, the Mahamantra Master Chief, is designed to deal primary damage to most squad types. This character is also considered a “selfish DPS”, the type of character that doesn’t provide much benefit when not on the field. Cyno’s rage ability also loses its effect when switching to another character. According to the survey, the top two reasons players dislike Cyno are the monotonous gameplay and the overall amount of damage.
The second character on the list is Klee with fire-type powers. He first appeared in the Genshin Impact 1.1 update in November 2020. Slow and cumbersome gameplay was obviously the main reason players voted for Klee. This makes a lot of sense since Klee is one of the oldest characters in the game and HoYoverse has introduced much stronger characters through updates.
Like Klee, the third character on the list, Tartaglia, better known as Childe, is also “criticized” for the gameplay. Despite being released in early game updates, Childe is still considered a Genshin Impact S-Rank DPS character, especially for players who have unlocked all zodiac signs.
Many players are quite surprised by Xiao’s appearance on the list because he is one of the strongest DPS in Genshin Impact and also possesses one of the best stories. Xiao has a skill set that revolves around performing consecutive dash attacks after using the rage skill. However, according to some reviews, this unique game can get boring after a few months.
