Yeah... but they were kinda inside a horde of Lomalins, so... XD
Maybe i have to rephrase this sentence. What i meant is that he needed to train more, to get experience and fight better, kill thaids to get levels and stats, and make neural links, which is a separate training. You are indeed correct, neural links are sort of bridges between the brain (body) and the brain crystal.
Hahahahaha i'm sorry
Well, I made some research about this phenomenon, and actually most of the people who had this problem (they got a friendship because they were pitied) wanted to quit that friendships. I mean, it is not nice, to get a friendship because of that.
It didn't appear yet for a temporal problem. Despite having many chapters, the tournament happened in the span of ten days at most, and I had to give the investigator enough time to work. He will appear in the next arc when enough time has passed. There will also be several sub-arcs, so stay tuned.
Ten days, but only extra quests, daily do still work. The energy consumption is lower and the system can manage that much.
Yes, and the number attached to it represents the number of neural links for that level. SIGMA2=2 neural links RHO2=5 neural links. Total neural links 54.
This is a first hahahahahahaha
I don't get what the problem is bro really. He is simply mad about the fact that when it was him that was beaten that way no one said nothing, but now that he did it to someone else people got mad. There is nothing to explain here since it has been well established that Erik was bullied heavily.
Sorry I was distracted
HAHAHAHAH sorry about that! I did change the conversation and forgot to delete that sentence! I fixed it now!
Lastly, you said, "his powerlessness doesn't allow him to live better." This is exactly the reason why he must get stronger: to live a better life, one not chained by the military (i want to recall that he lives in a society where strong people get more benefits). Again, he did actually kill only three people up to this point: Logan, Conal, and Orson. Not to achieve anything but revenge, the most common trope out there. Besides, even if his reason would be to have a comfortable life or get out of the country, I don't understand why these shouldn't be valid reasons. What would you do in his shoes? Moreover, he lives in a world where Thaids could literally tear the city's walls down and slaughter everyone, I even made a chapter where the city got attacked by thaids to show this. Besides, this is actually the reason why everyone is forced to join the military and improve their strength. The higher-ups and the soldiers are not omnipotent. The fact that there is a barrier and soldiers are patrolling the borders doesn't mean that the city is 100% safe. Regardless of his reasons, getting stronger is a must not only because of the state of the world but also because of how things work in Frant. Damn, there are novels with dungeons spawning everywhere with the MC going into them for no reason at all. He does it just because, and the problem is that the MC wants to live a better life. At least Erik has a reason to improve, one we could all relate to.
As for the fact that you don't see the advantage, I can understand your point of view, but again, there are many novels with this concept, and I'm not the first one to do it. Many people liked it, myself included, so I guess this is just a personal preference, but I can't see why this should be a note of demerit. As for the "training the powers" part, he can train them; he is actually doing it, but I guess I could make this more obvious. Though, if you notice, I did write on the system status that all his powers are SIGMA1 which is the entry-level for any power. Most people his age have their powers at the RHO1 level (IDOR). It is clear that he will make more neural links (aka train his powers) in due time; it's just that I didn't have enough time to power them all up. At the same time, since he goes out into the forest to hunt Thaids, it is clear that he collects many powers. It is inevitable due to the circumstances. As for the fact, he should use the other system's powers to gain money and stop working in the field. He will indeed use these BSC's powers to do many things, but this is simply not the time. The MC has other priorities, especially regarding his future inside the military. In a chapter, I even explained why he couldn't change work, but I guess you didn't read it. As for why he didn't learn engineering (just as an example) and all that stuff, as I said, he has other priorities, and even the reason why he didn't change his work is because of this. Erik believes he will join the military for the rest of his life; he doesn't need the money; he needs the power to escape his fate. As for the analysis power, he actually does what you suggest in the following chapters. He didn't in the early ones because he was (and he still is actually) in the process of learning how to fight, among other things. As I've said, I don't like omnipotent MCs who become gods in chapter 30. The reason why he did think about taking other people's BCP is because of his past mainly and how it shaped his personality and psyche, its because of the scars he has. What I am depicting is not something i came up with; you can hear about people who committed crimes due to bullying all around the world. Everything that he does has a reason. You may not like it but what I am doing is not much different from what many other authors did. As I've said, there was a novel in which, in the first chapter, the MC took advantage of his teacher, and in the following ones, he even raped some others (so I'm not showing the worst MC out there). Besides, the fact that I'm choosing to make him a psychopath(maybe) is not in itself a note of demerit; It is just my choice. Some people make way worse MCs than I am, not only in their personalities but even in how they react to everything around them. At least I'm trying to do a realistic character instead of making a Giga chad who understands everything and can do anything like a god. I'm trying to represent traits of the human psyche, for the better or the worst. I want to represent a human and his struggles, not the Messiah.
