One lucky Twitch streamer was literally thanking his lucky stars when he managed to pull two very rare Genshin Impact characters in only 15 attempts, a notoriously difficult feat for the free-to-play gacha game.

Genshin Impact has become the latest game to consume everyone’s free time in 2020. Players were sucked in by its beautiful Breath of the Wild inspired open-world, but the game has established itself as an independent phenomenon in many ways – its stunning cast of unique characters to name but one.

The character acquisition system in the game centers around the gacha format, where characters and special weapons are obtained through pulls or ‘Wishes’ that can be purchased with Acquainted or Intertwined fates, which themselves can be bought with Primogems.

miHoYo
Genshin Impact has accumulated over 17 million downloads since its recent release.

Every item has a star rating, the highest being five, which indicates the rarity of the character. For every wish you make, you could end up with a weapon like a sword, bow, catalyst, or you could be lucky enough to get a character.

While it’s particularly rare to get, streamer Transcendence certainly defied the odds, when he pulled out an unexpected result from just 15 wishes.

Almost right off the bat, he ended up pulling Venti, the mischievous bard, the first of the five-star characters he pulled. The streamer played it cool after throwing his arms in the air though, saying “it’s that easy, it’s that easy!”

Spurred on by his lucky Venti pull, Transcendence went all out with ten wishes in one go and watched as the results began to pop up on screen one by one.

And in an unexpected turn of events, QiQi also popped up, an adorable apprentice and herb gatherer, and incidentally another five-star pull.

Miraculously Transcendence played it off yet again with “it’s just that easy, what are you guys talking about?” but clearly looking delighted at the brilliantly lucky character pulls, within only 15 wishes.

Fans of the game will be praying that they end up with similar luck to this streamer next time they use up those all-important Wishes.

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.

You’ll need to complete six SBCs for the job though. Here’s what you need to do.
