According to some leaks shared by a fan on the Reddit page of Genshin Impact, future updates of the game are expected to the inclusion of 3 new featured banner cycles for players in the next update. Traditionally there have been 2 featured banners per update but that is not going to stay the same.
The new feature could allow for more 5-Star pulls from each banner cycle for the fans
The new update regarding this banner cycle would allow for more 5-Star character pulls from each banner in the game. A leak was shared by a Reddit user, suggesting that a change is in order for the banner system. The character banners usually include two five-star and three four-star characters.
Genshin Impact keeps on adding multiple characters with each update and this has left them with a robust roster of various characters in the game, with the new potential update, it seems as if they are trying to utilize this extensive character lineup of theirs.
The ongoing version 3.4 introduced two Dendro users, Alhaitham and Yaoyao, both of whom were placed in the first part of the update. A change in the banner system was in-order given how many characters were there in contention, and with this new update, more characters will be able to get pulled out of each banner cycle.
Unlike most Gacha games, HoYoverse does not shy away from making significant changes to the way its banner system works. The new update for the game is still some time away, hence not much can be said at this point given it’s still just a leak, but many fans are optimistic about this change in the banner system, given the fact that the same has happened before when the developers modified the banner system in their updates introducing a double-banner to the game.
Fans in the community are divided on this news, some say that it is the right step toward the game’s future while some don’t share the same optimism. However, the next update is still far from happening and it will be interesting to see how things pan out to be.
