Batcha himself seems to be partially pleased with the outcome.
UBatcha Insider, who has been posting about future Genshin Impact content for over a year, will stop posting confidential information. This was in response to possible legal action by the game’s developers.
In early December, it was revealed that miHoYo’s lawyers had demanded that Discord disclose data related to UBatcha’s account. Usually, this information is requested to sue the account owner.
This is what UBatcha says in his Twitter thread:.
- No miHoYo or Discord representatives have contacted him.
- The WFP server where the insider reports were posted also received no notifications or requests.
- Maybe the insider account got noticed just because it had the most followers.
And here’s another story: Genshin Impact’s creators are after insiders, but they don’t give up and just draw leaks.
After the actions of miHoYo’s lawyers became known, UBatcha deleted all posts that could be considered as copyright infringement and decided to stop publishing any more. The former insider has no plans to delete his Twitter account.
And a little bit of personal stuff. The recent beta release was like a huge weight off my shoulders, and I could sleep through the night instead of sitting around for 24 hours, posting content and working in the real world. It sounds silly, but I haven’t had one of these in over a year.
UBatcha’s possible legal action did not reduce the number of leaks: other insiders still leaked details of the currently tested version of Genshin Impact. It is scheduled for release on January 18.
