Anyone interested in kindom building/army management will probably enjoy this series immensely. While t isn't entirely "deep" there is certainly enough content to drive it past the vast majority of other series with similar premises. This series (so far) focuses primarily on the building and management content. If you are looking for in depth battles between armies or sieges etc then at least for now, this series is not for you. It DOES have that content, but for the most part it is very brief and at the current point... more>> in the story is primarily glossed over to advance the MC's territory/income etc. I have reason to believe it will be expanded upon as time goes on however and we will get more and more of said content as the MC encounters actual player territories, but so far it has been mainly NPC based with little interaction other than through trade/auctions/messages with other players.

I am confident that we will soon be getting battles with other players, but right now the MC is still in the building stage of his initial territory, expanding his economy and increasing the numbers and experience of his military/navy. And yes, it looks like we will be getting naval battles in this series as well.

My last point for those that might be interested is that this game is literally world spanning. At first it looks like it is based solely in an ancient china-like setting, and this is what I thought. It is, but we then find out that no, every major country is involved in the game and have their own territories in their own respective regions, currently separated from the China area. It is clear however that they will definitely interact in the future.

I have high hopes for this series and have recently become a patron on patreon in hopes to spur the translators (currently doing a chapter 7 days per week) to increase the pace. It is seriously addicting. I love this kind of content and there is not enough of it around... <<less

The only negative thing I have to say about this novel, isn't even about the novel itself but the rate of release.

Unfortunately, this is a series that has a lot of information and proper writing in each chapter when compared to most web novels, therefore the pacing is relatively slow if you are reading it chapter by chapter rather than all at once. Right now we are getting maybe 6 or 7 chapters per month translated.. And many chapters are cliffhangers.

Anyone looking to pick up the series, I suggest... more>> doing it now, but once you have reached this point, bookmark it for a later date and hope that the pacing picks up so you can start reading again in bulk. <<less

Let me just start off by saying I created this account 'solely' for the purpose of making this review. Up until now, no other series has prompted me to spend the effort. So yes, in short I believe this series to be worth the time of everyone looking to try it.

Well written/translated, interesting and unique story despite there being a few other similar series around right now. This one takes a more interesting route than the others and does it much better in my opinion, especially with regards to characterization..... more>> The MC is simply put, 'real'. He is a completely normal human being with no over the top/cliche character traits you'll find in god knows how many stories being translated right now. What I mean by this is the fact that we, as readers, are able to relate extremely well to this type of character. Where as other series tend to go the route of "wish-fulfilment", this story does thing in a way that still gives that sense of excitement and 'hype' without completely destroying the thought-processes of the character and how they act. He is completely and utterly 'normal' in real world terms, but at the same time he is 'exceptional' by what I can only call invisible standards.

Some of what I said may sound strange, but the simplest way I can put it is that the main character is not some over the top idiot that completely ignores the society around him. It is easy to place ourselves in his position without imagining too many ridiculous scenarios, and that really helps the story I think.

Anyway I've rambled on enough. Long story short, I give this series a 5 star rating because it deserves it. As it stands, the most I would probably give to the other series I read is 4.5. And even then, only one or two of them. Give this series a try and consider supporting it if you like it.. We need faster releases :P <<less

Really well written and translated, long chapters and a very interesting and well set up premise. This has all the makings of a VERY good series if you ask me, plus it's something new compared to most other series that are popular right now.

From what I can tell, things are set up in a fictional, but modern world, with multiple 'empires' in place of nations but retaining much of the modern-typical technology of our world. There are even straight up mentions of "Nokia" and even an "M4A1" rifle and "Glock... more>> 18" pistol (though the latter was called 'Clock', not sure if typo or not). Pretty badass.

If you're looking for an interesting story I would definitely recommend giving it a go, at least for the first couple chapters, as in my opinion it wont take too long for you to tell whether the series is for you or not.

5 Stars from me for now :D <<less
