The glory of the king official response.

  As two classic games that have been online for eight years, Tencent’s the glory of the king and Teacher of Yin and Yang have gathered many fans, and their "interaction" from a distance has also attracted a lot of attention.

  A game commentator believes that the significance of this matter is to let major game manufacturers know that many players hate plagiarism, so when they play games in the future, they may pay more attention to this aspect for word of mouth. In addition, after repeated pulling by both sides, we may find that there may be some imperfections in some laws and regulations related to plagiarism in China, and then optimize or improve them.

  The above game commentary expresses the hope that there will be less and less plagiarism in this circle, so that a really good game can appear. For this battle, whether you can win or not is second. "The most hope is that the two sides will fight with real swords and guns, and they will not spray each other on the Internet. Even if they want to spray, they will focus on indictments, judgments and related laws and regulations, rather than playing rice circles."

  In fact, it is not uncommon for the game circle to argue about material plagiarism. In April 2022, Netease’s game "Drawing Travelers in Time and Space" was officially released.Posted a message, saying that Tencent’s mobile game "the glory of the king" copied its original design, and then related keywords quickly rushed to the top of the hot search list.

  Shortly after the incident fermented, the glory of the king suppliers announced on the Internet at full speed that "the column bulletin board designed for the glory of the king may be similar to other product bulletin boards, and the actual situation of the design creation is being urgently investigated".

  In October, 2021, the poster of the glory of the king’s new IP tour "Code: Zero Three" was regarded as copying "The Original God", and the official issued an apology the next day, saying that this incident was mainly caused by the outsourcing company that made the poster, and the relevant personnel of this incident would be dealt with seriously.

  Up to now, "the glory of the king" is still one of Tencent’s mobile games with the strongest ability to attract gold, and it is also the Top1 in the domestic game revenue list all the year round. According to the latest China APP Store mobile game revenue ranking released by SensorTower in February, the glory of the king continues to rank first, while Netease’s Going Against the Water ranks fifth.

  However, the glory of the king, a domestic evergreen mobile game, may also face the pressure of extending its life cycle. On March 20th, Tencent released its annual financial report for 2023. The annual revenue of the game part was 179.9 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 5.4%. Among them, the overseas market revenue was 53.2 billion yuan, up 14% year-on-year, while the local market game revenue was 126.7 billion yuan, up only 2% year-on-year. In China, Tencent urgently needs a new explosion to replace the glory of the king and stimulate growth.
