Has Wuthering Waves Flopped Already?

Are the issues exaggerated, or is the game finished?

Last week they said it had 30 million pre registrations

Now it's suddenly a flop? I'm thinking it was a slow news day the day they wrote this

That is the GACHA cycle. Pretty much every single one gets tons of pre-registrations because of the bonuses you get when you sign up. Then Gacha players will play it for a week or two to see if it's for them. Definitely not a flop for now, but not out of the woods either. Most gachas don't survive for more than a year. And WW has way higher production values than your average GACHA, so it's even more riskier.

Now, for the game itself: I played it for a bit, and it is a game that will definitely please those who complained about GI combat. But for everyone else, it's sort of "meh," particularly due to the lack of charisma in everything.

It's not like it's super realistic graphics. They did overhaul it but I doubt top tier cel shading costs as much as bleeding edge tech for realistic graphics. My only gripe is they kept the Chinese names for things and it makes it harder to remember for english speakers.

the game is definitely out of the woods, you have no idea how attached 15 yo's get to these higher quality gacha games. You talk about the gacha cycle, but part of the cycle if promoting the game to infinity and making your money back in the first month, that's also part of the cycle sadly.

This is the closing statement.

"From what I can see, despite the initial hiccups, Wuwa is off to a great start. I can’t wait to explore more of the world, and see what the amazing community comes up with!"

Everything that I have seen about the game indicates that not only was the game successful it has way exceeded anyone's expectations.

It's just a stupid click bait title... and I don't get it, if you like the game and think that it's going to do well, why would you use a title that is likely to do more damage than good?

This is the worst type of "journalism" you are damaging someone else's thing just for personal gain through clicks... So congrats on your pennies... which likely caused the thing you like to make less money...

Hard to judge honestly. The game's had problems since launch and, being a sort of clone of one of Hoyoverse's biggest games already paints a target on it for negativity. Combine that with ZZZ coming out in a couple weeks and there's potential for a flop but I don't think it's even close to the end of the road yet for WW.

maybe its easier to judge when you know Hoyoverse was posting in wuthering waves streamer chats stuff like: In wuthering waves the bosses are lame, in genshin impact the bosses are very exciting.
They were bots ofc, but it says enough that they were afraid of the game and at the same time what a cancerous company Hoyoverse is, it's like a double whammy.
