This story is easy to read and relaxing. Don't stress too much on plot line. It is not xianxia story. MC is a troll and most of the time he lies without blinking his eyes. There are some mysteries with MC's past. He thought he just got lucky and have an ability to communicate with Gods but the truth is he is actually not a normal person. Just enjoy the ride and have fun.

Nice fresh work, instead of seeing MC transmigrate from modern world to ancient China-like with cultivation we've got pretty normal student dealing with dieties selling them cigarettes, instant food and introducing mahjong or poker as way to earn money. There is a lot of jokes and comedy. As for romance I'm not a big fan of harem but here it works quite well and is not annoying. Overall if you like to laugh a lot and relax I can sincerely recommended this novel.

Ugh, I thought I would like it, but I really can't stand reading it. The premise is interesting, at the least. But that's about it. The writing is quick lackluster, there's really no nice imagery present (it's just bare bones writing imo), and I hate the main character. He's an arrogant asshole, and lustful too. Somehow the author tries to make him out as righteous and sh*t, but... Well, what can we expect? He's like any other xianxia protag out there. One moment the story is like, stay faithful to girl... more>> A monogamy blah blah blah, next moment he's angry because girl B's string of fate has broken with him and when some thugs come up he's like don't touch my woman, and the moment after he's sexually harassing girl C. Like... are you serious? Rather than cultivation, fighting, or otherwise, this seems almost solely focused on flirting and getting together with girls? Who somehow just seem to magically fall in love with him. Minus the fact that he got Yue Lao himself to tie five different red strings for him... like, oh I'm flattered you broke this thug's four limbs for me (wasn't really for her). Or, you walked me back to my dorm, I feel you are different from other people *blush blush* WHAT THE ACTUAL F*CK. But anyways. The premise is still interesting and translations are fairly good (as far as I can tell)... but everything else is a bit... :/... <<less

Very exciting at first but quickly nose dived in quality. A story with a TON of wasted potential - the author has no concept of pacing, he just keeps throwing out plot points without developing them. Everything feels flat, especially since he just keeps adding harem members when we know next to nothing about the existing ones. When you compare this to cultivation chat group... it just fails in every way. I thought that the red packet mechanic was fun and interesting at first, but the author ends up doing... more>> very little with it. Boring. <<less

The idea of the cultivation chat group composed of actual ancient Gods is just so ridiculous, that it can only be a joke. There's no way anyone can take it seriously. And yet it's played out for serious, as the story progresses, moving on to serious life-or-death events. I kept hoping that the chat group was just a trap and he would learn the hard way not to trust random strangers online but it turned out to be a ridiculous power fantasy instead.

The MC commits assault in broad daylight... more>> in modern society and gets away with it. Random girls fall in love with him. He goes from being sh*t at League of Legends to a Challenger-tier pro after eating a pill that only improves his strength and reaction speed. I was just like "wtf?". There is so much more to being good at League than just reaction speed. Not even considering the need to know build order (what to buy and when, what to build in what situation), when to push and when to roam, vision control, when to go for objectives, playing around your team and the enemy team's strengths, weaknesses, keeping track of spell cooldowns, etc. Just mastering mechanics is something that is much more than just reaction time. You need to know how to do combos, in what order, what combo to use in what situation, other things like animation cancelling etc. Stuff that has nothing to do with reaction time. So basically it is just a power fantasy after all.

Very repetitive and boring. The author throws mini-arc after mini-arc, and for every one somebody makes trouble for the MC, at which point he, one of his new harem members or one of his brothers-to-be-abused-for-life uses how rich they are to slap the villain's face.

The MC starts poor, but within a few chapters he becomes rich so conveniently that I can't help but consider this a get rich quick fantasy for middle/working class Chinese readers. There have been signs the currency of focus may shift to years of cultivation... more>> what with the packet group, but even so I doubt the plotline will undergo any significant change.

Furthermore, the romance is terrible, even for those stories such as MGA. In other similarly sh*tty stories, the author will contrive ways to get rid off old harem members while the MC runs around collecting new ones. In Red Packet Server, it's as if except for some predetermined very small cliques, they will never meet each other. The MC might as well be living multiple lives. To give an example, I was extremely annoyed that after
Spoiler

getting a lover, the MC and his lover went to their respective homes. And then they forgot about each other. A few dozen chapters and much flirting on the MC's part later, they stumble across each other and finally remember "oh yeah, we're in a relationship! Let's go on a date. " Neither cared to pick up a phone and call for the last week or something.

[collapse]

Furthermore, the story isn't all that funny! At first, the red packets gave some laughs, but now the deities are too dumb and the packets too convenient to be funny. I mean seriously! The deities can use a Chinese phone app from Earth but can't find said Earth? Furthermore, MC needs some random Deus ex Machina? No worries! He can send a gofer for some cigarettes and the deities will bow at his feet. And do so next time as well. And the time after that. And so on. I picked up Red Packet Server because of the setting's striking similarities to the stellar Cultivation Chat Group. It fell far short. I do not recommend this novel, though no doubt I will be reading a few chapters every blue moon or two (boredom does that).

I've never been one for going around the 5 point scale, but while I don't think this novel is a 1/5, 2/5 feels too generous. 1. 5/5. Be happy Red Packet Server; I am starting to use decimals in my ratings mainly because of you.

I like it. First of all its well translated. Slight to no editing needed. It's like Cultivation Chat Group, but the main character has less involvement in the martial world, at least for now. The main character, like it says in the synopsis, joins a chat group of the many deities that dominate the martial world. This chat group is one where you can send gifts into the chat group where the recipients compete to receive the gift first. The MC, a mortal, gains benefits and trades modern goods for... more>> cultivation treasures. With a good balance of realism and the mystical part of this story; the story holds a sense of RomCom within it that makes it all the more appealing. It might be too early to decide whether or not this story will continue being this good, but so far, reading the novel is a pleasurable process. A very light novel with more slice of life than fights to the death, its not for those who want the MC to become super OP with enemies that are always way stronger. Personally recommended.

I started to read this story, because it is suppose to be a comedy with a similar premise as cultivator chat group. However the main character is arrogant without been able to back it up, for what I have read so far he should still be a weak mortal (The plot armor is really thick here). To my understanding he is nothing but a foolish mortal pursuing the pleasures of the mortal world, rather than taking the full advantage of the opportunity given to him to reach the path of... more>> immortality, and as for comedy I am yet to be amuse.

Sadly this story it also has a harem tag, one which I failed to see before starting reading this. I have yet to read a harem that would really impress me.

The thing I hate most about this story is the main character, he's floating to woman left and right even though the writer says that he 'likes' one girl more than the others (I get it's a harem but, I don't feel like any of the girls in the 'harem' have any type of depth in them, they're also too easy to fall in love/attracted to the main lead, it barely takes more than a couple chapters. It's barely even pointed out if the girls have any siblings or what... more>> they like, only if they have a fan club or not.) but, he keeps on flirting with other women without any type of guilty conscious like it's not even his first time building a harem. Also, because of the group chat, he easily get's most things he wants and things he wants done, are easily done (I get it's probably more based off of humor, but can you try to act least make it a bit harder to achieve things?). There's many more things I can probably list of things that I don't like about this novel, but I feel like it'll be pointless rambling that'll go on forever so I'll stop my review here. My bottom line here is to avoid reading this novel as much as you can because most likely, your brain cells are going to be lost.

It's a bit funny, sure, but there are also enough major flaws for it to be irritating. He always gets the one thing he needs right as he needs it, a lot of the plot revolves around him being poor and then getting enough money to act like he's rich, with another whole aspect of the plot being basically a dating sim mechanic to rationalize his harem.

Cultivation Chat Group did it all better.

I don't post reviews that often but this one deserved it, I guess?! Lol. The story started out quite well but as the other reviewers already mentioned went downhill soon after. Comparing it to CCG is like comparing an authentic Prada bag to a Class B imitation, and that is putting it nicely already. The story does not have a plot, period. It is like a story a teenager who is horny AF would write in his notebook detailing all the things he would like to experience, A MILF, a... more>> lolI ghost, etc. It is painful. Though there are a few things that made me laugh like his interaction with the Deities and Mythical Heroes, those still were not enough to glaze over the glaring fact that the story is severely lacking in the character depth and development.

I still gave it a two since it gave me a couple laughs but nothing else could salvage this story unless the author tries and gives the MC some more depth and not all horny-ness. If that is even a word.

A mess of a story. Everytime he gets a treasure from the packets it is used up in some sort of conflict that the author makes up out of nowhere. The MC gets exploited for his treasure by those around him and he has not even established himself as a person of power, only one with powerful friends. Random women fall in love with him left and right and he doesnt even stay with one long enough to make the relationships anything meaningful.

It infuriates me how the MC just... more>> gives away priceless treasures for no reason or price just because he is asked to. He acts like a complete chump even though he has direct connections to GODS.

To begin with, the translation is high-quality, so no points lost there. As to the story, I felt like it started out okay. It fairly quickly went downhill, however. Good fortune, for no discernible reason, constantly falls in the MC's lap. He doesn't have to make any effort to suddenly have anything he wants. He doesn't have to come up with clever plans or overcome any meaningful adversity (beyond his girlfriend issues in the first chapter).

Even so, it might have been an okay story to read to pass the... more>> time. What ended up killing it for me was the MC's behavior. He has regular run-ins with "rich young master" side characters who are stereotypical egotistical jerks. So, of course, that's exactly what he becomes himself. Sure, he doesn't seem to have much attachment to money, as the author has him giving or frittering it away at every turn. But he never EARNS any either, just receiving it on plot-derived silver platters whenever he needs it. Then he uses his powers, financial, influential, and otherwise, to stomp all over those who offend him. In short, he becomes an asshole. Why would I want to read a story where a guy I can't bring myself to like enjoys his power fantasies? <<less

I give it 5 star since I love to read a novel that makes me thinks of possibilities

To many novel now a days are just to blunt and boring with the repetitive plots and predictable outcomes not to mention the never ending filler and trash chapters.

1st Let's Ignore the Harem part I am not one of the hypocrite readers who denies and say they hate harem yet they still read it. What this novel have that made me interesting is the mix of god and human. Take MC for... more>> example an idea just made me think WHAT IF MC is not really a mortal? That make sense and explain why he got invited in that chat group as most reader who read novel such as this can tell that some gods tend to reincarnate and forget most of there past until they reach a certain realm. To many What IF in this novel and that is just one of the example that make this novel interesting. I also love the balance on how the author represents the girls in this novel. Not the old classic harem where all girl should reunite out of no where. The girl here has decent character build which we can enjoy reading. To little to None Filler that makes you wanna read this daily.

The plot is a big mystery? Well that is if you don't expect that the outcome is this and that still it should be good enough to manage to outlast the story.

The biggest flaw of this story is the lack proper setting, for once we have an amazing MC yet you can't help but say why the MC is amazing? The backing or support characters are a little bit not clear as MC interact with some people every now and then. And there has yet to appear a really decent enemy that can threaten the MC.

I rarely give 5 star so I can guarantee this is a good novel to look forward for.

for the readers who give below 3 star

I can't help but notice that the comment was base on the MC being arrogant and the harem part. I feel pity as to this people is reading and can only see HAREM? This shows how hypocrite of a person they are. I mean if you don't like harem why the hell do you even mention and explain this and that like a pro. If you really HATE harem tag genre then STFU and stop reading lol.

remind of a bunch of lolicons saying that this and that are pedophiles and yet they are the only ones who notice the pedo part as the majority of the readers can't even tell which part is being pedo lol.

Next is MC being arrogant, This is an old and really ridiculous reason of assaulting an author. Which person is not arrogant? Wake up reality is all humans are born arrogant. Humble? Is a word use to submissive people who need to vow down like a dog to impress someone and you really think people would read a novel like that? MC should be superior he is called main character for a reason and you want him not to be arrogant? And yet when you read a lame MC with down to earth humbleness you then shout out loud! Why the hell is this MC like that? Lol such a paradox.

Sadly to rate this novel below 3 just for that Harem Tag and MC being arrogant and still have the shame to review is really pitiful, yet it can't be help.

Like I have the right to do a review this people can also say anything they want. I know since I often say my bias opinion yet I don't force people to believe in me.

At first I was really interested in the novel, but after a dozen or two chapters it got annoying for me to continue reading. Don't get me wrong-- I did like it enough because of the high quality translation, but the story just doesn't appeal to me anymore.

Spoiler

The MC is a bit too unreasonable. First he said that he's the type of guy who's loyal to only one person, but then suddenly he's chasing other girls when he's in a lover relationship with someone who trusted him 100%? Then he goes and beats people up to near death just because they 'hurt' the girl he likes. I honestly don't really mind harem, depending on the character of the MC, but this is not a good harem story. I don't like the way the author approached the genre. The girls are basically dolls with pretty faces, they don't have depth. Sure, there is some background story, like the divorcee with an autistic child, but that's about it. We don't know the characters personally, just some shallow information that's barely skimming the surface. Heck, we don't know a lot about the other characters too, other than that they are classified as either on the MC's side or not.


Similar to the MC of IRAS, he's the type that doesn't take sh*t from nobody. I get that he's giving those who look down on him their just desserts, but he doesn't know moderateness. With the 'cheat' of the red packets, he gains money and connection so quickly, that it seems too easy. He gets strength, then suddenly he goes around beating people. A god tied a red string for him with a girl, then he asks for more and to reconnect the broken ones.


I'm glad that there are less brain-dead cannon fodder antagonists in this, but in compensation, the author gives us brain-dead sidekicks who are waaaay too eager to suck up to the MC (regardless of their extraordinary background) just because he got some good fortune from some unassuming gods (which he does not deserve). And what's more, when the 'fortune' runs out, he shamelessly asks for more, and gave back some cheap stuff to the gods, spewing a bs story to go along with it.

[collapse]

All in all, this is a time-waster type of story. You'll enjoy it if you don't want to think too deeply about the plot. It's light and fast-paced enough that you can finish it in a few hours. If you intend to read this story, I assure you that the translation won't be giving you a headache (but the MC will). I really appreciate the translators who went all out into giving such a high quality translation.

If you do happen to like this novel, then let's just agree-to-disagree.

It seems like it will be similar to I'm really a superstar in the items that are gained and the concept of being underestimated and then proving that you are better. From what I have read so far it is interesting and has me hooked. MC exchanges modern items for items from the cultivation/god world and acts as if the items are rare like a bottle of sprite. Overall I think this novel has great potential looking forward to reading more.

Update there are some adult themes but it adds... more>> to the comedy and has to be inferred <<less

I tried this based on a recommendation in Cultivation Chat Group comments but any similarities are very superficial. This story fails in several ways, most of which have been mentioned by others. But there's one that for me is critical.

Characterization. The characterization sucks. The author is in too big a hurry to have things happen and doesn't spend any time on the characters. The people in the chat group are famous characters like the Monkey King. This sounds interesting but the author uses this as a crutch so that... more>> he doesn't have to work at the character details. They're dull and lifeless as a result. The MC is pretty much a blank slate aside from greedy about the packets.

Other people might be fine with this but I'm the type that needs a decent amount of characterization to establish any kind of rapport with the protagonist.

If you're looking for super martial arts, action, adventure, stop here, you're done. Take this for what it's worth. A very enjoyable novel in a slice of life style, and has many comedic elements. Sure there's luck, and maybe the MC gains some power, but thats part of the reason of why it's so funny. If you enjoy IRAS, you will 100% enjoy this :)

I'm getting a vibe like The Lame Daoist Priest has. The writing style and humor seem similar.

The premise is super interesting! I enjoy the brief flashes of brilliance, but I hope there are more interesting scenes. Granted, I'm only at Chapter 40 and this just came out, but it doesn't seem to be the most awesome book out there. It's certainly good though! The translations are awesome.
