Just as an example -- from the very start of the story we see Leylin being moronic and walking around eating plants so the AI can figure out what they do. What? Is this what a scientist would do? What happens when you eat poison? I actually assumed that maybe the AI would be able to control his body and eject any poison if he were to consume it but this isn't the case. He was just being an idiot.
I'll illustrate my point: at one part during the story Qin Yu gets chased by a big shot (Emperor Mu) and BARELY escapes by the skin of his teeth. Just then, he sees an important underling of Emperor Mu who tried to kill him before. If he does anything, Emperor Mu will know where he is and come after him again. The smartest thing to do -- and in fact, what would solve ALL his problems -- would be to stay low key, hide inside Jiang Lan's realm and train until he's OP, then come back and safely crush all of his enemies, including Emperor Mu and co. There's really NO need for any danger. But does Qin Yu do this? NOPE! He throws awsay common sense, attacks this guy in the middle of a gathering of important people, makes a bunch of enemies he doesn't need to make, and then gets chased across planets in yet another life-or-death pursuit! Wtf??? Emperor Mu follows, and sends all his underlings ahead to watch every possible route of escape. WTF did Qin Yu think was going to happen? And absolutely none of thisw as necessary. It was just IET deciding he needed some kind of conflict so he made Qin Yu do something dumb.
There are also more CIS:
After everything he's done, why the f*ck does Uncle Lan give Jiang Fan the last two parts of the Exalted Celestial's Treasure? He murdered Uncle Lan's lover along with the other 8 Godkings. He made Zhou Xian or whatever his name is his son-in-law for his own ends. He tried to kill Qin Yu while shamelessly acting like it was a fair decision. He tried to kill Qin Yu and Jiang Li's unborn child. Instead he gets let off with no punishment and Uncle Lan even rewards him...? Retarded. It's obvious that IET just did this because he'd decided he was going to have someone else get the Exalted Celestial's treasure, but it's completely out of left field and Jiang Fan doesn't even go to Fog City to apologise.
There's also a bunch of other things:
- Qin Yu slaughters a school of cultivators because the son of the Patriarch or whatever killed his master and cut off his relative's arms. Qin Yu is an asshole.
Not to mention that Qin Yu regularly behaves like an as*hole by randomly being arrogant and often sidestepping questions people ask him for the sake of looking mysterious. There's event a point where
Hou Fei is about to die -- also don't get me started on that dumbass Hou Fei -- but Hou Fei is about to die and Qin Yu waits until Hou Fei, his supposed "brother", cries out for help before he saves him. Just... what? Are you that desperate to look cool? It's not cool, it's just irritating.
What company would get away with letting players set the pain setting so high that you can die IRL?
How can one Lv. 1 player kill so many players so fast? Are the other players made of soap bubbles? And why are none of these guys using the weapons they spawned with? It's stupid how long it took players to react. There's no way that 100+ gamers are going to stand still (even if they didn't play the beta) until a random level one player in beginner gear manages to get kills in the doube digits. That would NEVER happen. Anyone who's played a MMO with mass PvP would understand the terror of player zergs, and would know that the MC would get mobbed and die in a split second.
What's even dumber is that not even the town guards can stop her. For real?? Why the f*ck are there even guards protecting the town if they can't stop a single, newly spawned player??? In any real MMO they would one-shot her. She wouldn't be able to decapitate one, either.
OK, so let's accept that this VRMMO is different. It's still just another example of how contrived it is. There's also a reason why games have safe zones. People just ragequit if everywhere is a PK zone, unless the game's main feature is whole-world PK -- in which case every player would spawn ready to fight.
Also, how does she know how to use camouflage or any of her other skills when she immediately killed the guy that was supposed to explain it to her? It just goes on and on.
