Leveling Up And Becoming Undefeatable

Spoiler

edit- Absolutely agree with easygoing and quill. This was one of the most frustrating stories I have read in a long time. I tried powering through it to see if the author would ever improve, but this last couple chapters finally killed me on it. Glad I read their reviews before I wasted anymore time on it and wish I had done so before getting this far in.

Story is so repetitive. Main Character has OP way to power up, and because his enemies get arbitrary power ups that becomes meaningless. His friends are always getting their butts kicked and or killed because they are stupid and or hobbled by the need for the MC to come save them eventually. Every time someone tries to do something decent or noble they get crushed so that the MC has to take action. It just gets old. It isn't new, every story arc is the same, every villain is the same, character's solution is the same. Author just gives them new names/ability names, they behave the same way and follow the same tropes. FFS I wish I had stopped reading this 1000 chapters ago when I realized it was this repetitive. Garbage story. So bad I had to create an account to review it.

Finally had to stop reading this garbage. I tried so hard to soldier through it, great concept. Terribly executed.
Spoiler

Author uses DBZ style fights every 20-50 chapters to make it not boring. That's great and all, but this is a kingdom building story. So anyone wanting to read kingdom building will naturally be bored with the DBZ fights.

Next is the rapetastic parts of the story. Dude literally captures thousands of women to add to his harem, for reasons. Great excuses and all, but the hundreds that he forces to have s*x with him so that he can refine their ancestral tools is called rape. I don't care if "she liked it later", that is still rape, if you don't understand that then I don't know, just turn yourself in to your local police department before you assault a woman.

Next is the absolutely ridiculous conflict in this story. First you have players being tricked into fighting him. 10s of millions at a time. Wait, 10s of millions of players are combat classes in a game environment where everyone kinda has no ability to opt out? Sounds like BS to me. I mean, yeah, maybe in all of china there are 10s of millions of combat players, but this author assumes EVERYONE is going to be a combat player. Old people, children, the infirm, everyone. But, that's not unrealistic enough, no somehow we take it a step further and the other legacies can somehow convince 10s of millions of players to attack just one legacy over and over again. Sure if there was no negative, this makes since, but you lose everything in game when you die. EVERYTHING. Especially after MC comes up with ways to KILL YOU IRL if you screw with him.

Finally, they are approaching the point where they will merge soon with the real heaven's awaken world, and all the other legacies are still so blinded that htey are trying to destroy MC in spite of the fact that it could leave them so badly weakened that they won't survive once the merger happens? How stupid do you expect me to believe these people are? FFS, author, I get it. Its an excuse to make MC look badass once again and to screw over anyone who dared to threaten MC, but its stupid as hell and noone that had made it this far would be that dumb.

TL:DR : this story is disjointed, forgets what it is, filled with gratuitous rape, and has some of the stupidest plotlines I have ever freaking read. I want the time I spent reading this back.

Typical sociopath BS that I have come to expect from Korean Survival genre. I should have checked to see where this came from. This author even has the gall to claim that his mentally deranged view of human behavior is to be expected when people are put under pressure and calls actual human behavior hypocritical. History proves this false. Learn some history before attempting to push your edgelord ideologies on the rest of us.

Tales of the Reincarnated Lord

Almost caught up before I dropped it. Just far too many info dumps. Story would actually be a solid 4 if not for the constant info dumps. We get an info dump of someone describing the situation, we get an info dump of what each person knows about the situation, we get info dumps about everyone's responses to the situation, then and only then is it time for planning. After that something happens for 1 chapter. Then info dump cycle starts over and over again. The closer to caught up... more>> I got, the more and more frustrated I was. This story could really do with team 4 star abridged series.

Also last 150 chapters or so MC has started becoming dense just to allow new drama to arise. Falling into mistakes that simply shouldn't happen, allowing dumb things to happen because he can't be arsed to focus on them,

letting people turn his children into psychopaths because he doesn't want the hassle of having to sort the problem out.

simply put, the longer this story goes, the more it groans under its own conceits. <<less

Really enjoying this story. I will agree with many of the people here that the concept is interesting. I was really agitated with the MC's "wait and see" attitude. As previous reviewers have mentioned someone with military experience would be very unlikely to passively watch as so much went down. Again, MC is way too passive. Too bad about its translation speed. It's been over a month since the last one came out. I saw there were over a thousand chapters left. Pretty sure this is one I will never... more>> finish reading because of this and with how slow the story goes. You just can't get into the story this way and by the time the next chapter is translated it will be forgotten. <<less

Not going to lie, premise of the story is great. Issue is the author somehow made a worse version of Weed. At least Weed had quite a few redeemable qualities. Even his penny pinching came across as quite laudable frugality most of the time. This character takes that and divorces it from any kind of positive character traits, which is funny because unlike Weed who must care for his ill grandmother and college age sister, the MC here is a NEET living at home. The only positive character trait is... more>> that the MC stood up for the elderly, sure, not immediately, but once the badguys pushed too far. If not for the translator's promise that his terrible personality will improve I probably would have quit by now. When the MC's obvious, numerous, and overwhelming, bordering on severe psychological dysfunction, character traits aren't visible, this story has some very interesting concepts that I would love to see pursued. Unfortunately, since most of the story is told from the MC's point of view, I don't know whether it will be able to continue under the wait of this difficult character. Is it supposed to provide humor or make the character relatable? <<less
