Editor review. Hey guys, glad to see this novel finally published :D It's been in the works for over a year now, but due to a few changes of translators, it'll been constantly delayed. When we lost the first translator, I specifically requested to stay on this project because I enjoy the story so much. So, obviously, I'm a big fan of the story. The MC has some heartfelt moments, some hilarious moments (the 'Spicy.' in one of the early chapters killed me), and some smart/scheming moments, which is pretty much all I ask for in a novel :D If you have any questions or notice any errors or inconsistencies (they're inevitable, especially with a change of translator midway), feel free to reply here or message me on Discord. My ID is millman97#8008.


nice litRPG theme novel, realistic stories, plot encounter, dramatic spices all of this blend perfectly... better than other brain dead MC with same genre, I thought this is not Chinese novel more like Korean novel, but after my "dream" "wakes up" by some BS illogical author, I now know how to spend my stone~


This is another transmigration into a role-playing video game where the MC knows what will happen in the future. The twist is the MC transmigrate as an NPC that can also level up and learn skills like a player. It is still unclear if players will be introduced into the story or how smart the MC is at utilizing his foresight, but so far, it's not a bad story. No face slapping, stuck-up girl or young master in the first 15 chapters.


Story was quite good until 80+ chapters. After that, MC started to develop complex of god and author started to cover loopholes in story. In this novel was stated that this world is real and MC was believing in it, but, at some point, he started to treat NPC just as XP and after some analyzes, I believe he has quite serious mental issues. Some readers believe that officers are "arrogant idiot", orders and regulations were incorrect and stuff that MC did is fine. But such readers are looking at situations only from POV of MC, and does not look beyond what author shows them. If we analyze this novel from POV of real life army and other characters, we can see that MC is very stupid, immature and a psycho. I love smart MC, and I am fine with him being a psycho, but when you show that some random gamer with average talent is smarter than all officers, government, etc... It is a completely different story... Basically, in my opinion, author does not understand real life.


Somewhat Disappointing, it has a fantastic beginning and really kick ass MC... for the first few chapters, after that the characters become increasingly 2d, and disposable, a great deal of face slapping and MC pride mongering ensues, there are some funny moments and a couple slightly thought provoking ones...but it leaves you with the feeling of bait and switch, which is really frustrating and makes you feel robbed. Don't get me wrong, its not a bad story, but it feels like a scifi with all the tropes of a wuxia novel, So much potential in this story feels like it has been wasted, and a lot of it feels like it is first sucked out of the authors thumb, and then given shallow justifications as to why and how it is happening.


I LOVE THOS STORY. But it went premium. I am poor. These two things go together as well as Han Xiao and Germinal. T_T Anyway, this is an amazing story, and give the first 89 free chapters a go if you are poor like me. Chapters are short, but overall this is a very enjoyable novel. Don’t hold a grudge for the short chapters.


The whole writing is a mess. Logic is non-existent and there's no consistency. Main character loses past life's memories but still remembers a lot of things when it's convenient for the author, while at other times he murders without blinking cause he doesn't remember. Just no.


Story started out great, was really getting into it. However, as of the most current chapters(90), the last few have been very iffy. The interaction with the Germinal boss after the base sabotage for instance was pretty sloppy and downright stupid. Story seems to be going downhill. Not to mention the sub par release rate and the author/translator selling out for premium.


So far I love the start and can tell there is a ton of potential. The only downside is the 7chapters/week release......................................


curious about the continuation of this novel? You can read the MTL version first on : novelraw.blogspot.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


While it isn't perfect, this is a better example of the trope of using future knowledge to your benefit. What really makes it stand out is the protagonist doesn't care if his actions change outcomes and in facts welcomes changes as opportunities to be exploited. It sometimes suffers from a little deus ex machina where he conveniently finds the design he needs or stumbles upon a treasure that helps him in his next encounter. The solutions he comes up with and his unorthodox methodology are enjoyable though. It also doesn't appear to be written off the cuff as there is evidence of foreshadowing and links back to earlier characters and story that show there is at least some planning behind it. Author doesn't conveniently forget about things just because it happened 40 chapters ago.


After the initial novelty about thr mechanic class it fell right into another chinese novel genre. I don't know if it is just the chinese way of writing things.. god like things.. mt tai.. trash talk.. call trash to anyone .. maybe i have read a lot of those types of novels where the dialogue gets boring. He cries at start about unfair . But the 'evil' woman that is somehow really ice queen and sexy type is not evil and 10 out of 10 is gonna be with mc. And mechanic hard class? Nvm. Here start in high tech labs and dissasemble for 6 months... right.. unfair.. no love.. sure.. Another chinese novel.. Sometime the descriptions feel very bland or very hasty.. All in all.. just meh.


I have read up to volume 3 of this novel raw, though it looks boring, do give it a chance. pros: it is a unique story unlike any there I have, it is about how the mc uses the players to his advantage cons: big plot hole include how the troubles caused by the mc never get the devs attention. This game world is real and the players are like beings from higher dimensions or something like that so. There will be lots of action and comedy. There is little romance to where I have read which is about 400 chapters.


This novel has high potential to be awesome. This 140 chacter review thing is pissing me off 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡


We need more !! we need mass chapter !! 7/week not enough !! spirit stone? power stone? if this novel not make me bored.. i will give it all to you~ now i waiting.....for...more.... chapter.....
