Genshin Impact Maintenance, It's to time fix bugs PC PlayStation iOS Android 

With the game gaining more traction and the revenue keep piling up. Genshin Impact should maintain a great reputation in its player base by making sure that the game is bug-free and fewer errors than more. This is why maintenances and hotfixes are implemented by various game companies to ensure that the game won't break down in case of a game-breaking problem. Maintenances are conducted to avoid issues and fix bugs that are noticed by the players. Now, with Genshin having one, what is there to expect. Let's break down miHoYo's announcement regarding GI's maintenance.

Genshin Impact will conduct maintenance starting 7 AM until 11 AM in morning, since the timezone of the game is the same in the Philippines, it will be at the same time that we are experiencing that the schedule is posted so no need to compute timezones as you do in other games. The purpose of the maintenance is to fix bugs that are currently present in the game and to ensure that the player experience is at the best that it can be. So for those who plan to minmax, plan your game accordingly.

Once the maintenance is done, Android, iOS and PS4 players should restart the game so that the application can update to its latest version while the PC players will have to restart the game and click the updated button in the launcher to download and apply the new version of the game.

The compensation for the downtime of the maintenance will be 240 Primogems! Extensions of the maintenance will make the compensation give out more primogems, specifically 60 as the 240 amount results to the amount of time in the initial plan of the maintenance is 60 primogems in each hour. Funnily enough, people do not mind if the maintenance is extended if it means more primogem giveaway, yay apologems, amiright?

Make sure you are in Adventure Rank 5 or higher to receive the rewards and make sure to get it within 30 days of receiving it in the in-game mail, or else the mail will expire together with the primogems.
