My picture of NetEase is mixed,
In fact, many titles developed under their already watchful eyes tend to push quality to the background and focus instead on pumping out (small) DLC, unwanted in-game cosmetic purchases to also pay to win in various forms, and subscriptions in various forms. They generally offer little for their cost.
Especially with games that include in-game purchases, they (and other Chinese gamers) often have a hand in designing games in such a way that they are in principle playable without in-game purchases, but you have to play a lot or such cumbersome procedures have to do That without the €5 for “convenience xyz package” it stays on the edge of fun and frustration.
In addition, the situation is probably a little tense with Chinese companies in general at the moment, given that the EU and China appear to be preparing for a new round of economic measures on both sides.
I also saw Eve in her stable and made a comment about it being a good game where that wasn’t the case but they specifically have the mobile version of it and I googled it for a while and I actually see reddit threads going through excel sheets that say what are the things that You can best buy them for real money or inside games and things you should not do to get the best value for your money. This is not reassuring
