I can only say that this novel is just so-so. You see it's very annoying that everytime you read every chapters he always talks about baseball and rants about the game (why can't the author just write about the game scenario itself??!) Though it's very funny how everyone misunderstands him being rich 🤧🤣

It's mediocre (read tr*sh) at best, and that's coming from someone who's read about 300 chapters. The dude goes to a certain area, shows off and get money from his streams and if he needs a certain skill card or item, the higher leveled players are like "What staggering talent and power! He mustn't join my enemies!" and proceeds to absolutely smother the MC with items and skill. I'm not exaggerating or anything. The MC sometimes falls into a dilemma because he doesn't have enough money (Har har har, Jesus... more>> Christ, can this cliche STOP? I'm Korean and I'm sick of it!) and then he'll get it from a company who wants to promote their brand (I'm half-convinced that the author himself was sponsored by a company as the same company comes out OVER AND OVER.) or as I mentioned above, the higher level players will be like "Incredible talent... and such money! Uh, This skill is literally worth millions of dollars but I need to give it to him to convince him to do something so incredibly insignificant that it won't appear again after a few chapters!" God please, can we stop? I hate the author, D-Dart, with a passion because he seems to the embodiment of cliches and everything I detest about webnovels. Maybe it's alright if he did it once or twice but HE DOES IT FOR F#$KING 300 CHAPTERS. And the last time I checked, it was over 400 chapters. I give up on this novel.

In short, novel is tr*sh, don't read it for your own sake.

This was my review, peace out <<less

It's actually good so far. Don't trust the first review, it is readable and you'll know who is talking to who unless you're not some newbie who needs the name of every character in their dialogues when it's only a 2 person conversation. It isn't the TL's fault and it's even a well known TL website. Another No, it doesn't have comedies at all and so is the author making the characters funny. It just isn't.

So far in the earlier chapters, we have the MC, a man who had encounter... more>> of countless of bad luck. He lost his career because of an accident which made his body not compatible in his chosen profession and made him quit. He turned to VR game, which is the greatest entertainment in the era, created and grinded his character for years so he can earn some income and provide his family. Then bad luck strikes again and made him despair, the pillar of hid family, but what if that very unfortunate luck is the greatest luck of all?

It has the realism, emotional stress, well-written dialouges and common sense where reasons about sci-fi things can be explained and not just some bunch of BS crump up together. So it kinda irks me when some noob diss a good novel that have a potential to grow and no, the characters doesn't have same names at all. It's true that some KR novel has same surnames since it's common in korea but for gods sake there's even less than 5 introduced characters and they don't have same names. <<less

I was interested with the story at first but damn this writting style is annoying af. Author wont say whats happening properly and instead likes to beat around the bush. That narration feels like author is telling a riddle than a story. It just made me pissed and annoyed. If you happen to be ok with the writting style then it might be interesting for you.

I love this novel

From what I can tell this novel breaks the shell of an MC that goes back in time to play a game and knows everything

Rather this novel is about the MC with a little cheat

Also I love how the MC is being low key and hides the cheat he has from others

Also really hope for a stable release for this novel

This is conflicting for me. The plot is good enough to rate it highly, however the skill of the author butchers any hope of this novel being a great read.

The plot is a novel twist on a generic trope- enough that it is entertaining and gives promise for a good read.

Grammatically, it is coherent enough for a smooth read.

There are many issues with the skill of the author, who skipped character development completely. You are thrust in and are not provided fluidity between plot and details. Because of this, you... more>> are pulled from immersion in the story, and are left confused in parts about what is happening. You don't get many details on the environment around the plotline. I don't have any idea what his house is like, I have no clue of the suburbs, education, appearance. I have no clue about any sort of location. Good authors would piece these snippets of information into their story whilst maintaining the plot in order to build the world of the novel. This doesn't happen and makes the world a confusing void of mess. <<less

so far this is pretty average for the genre; not great, but nothing stands out as really bad. If you like shallow gaming novels with a cheat you'll probably like it well enough. I will do a final rating once more has been translated.

also, that's sooo not what BJ means in my country.

It's a below mediocre novel at best.

The characters are extremely shallow and not fleshed out.

The power system is crap even among all the gaming novels I read.

I suggest reading this with a light mentality, don't expect much from the novel, just read it for past-time if you don't have anything else to read.

It was really confusing to read due to random dialogues. They just cut in randomly each time and usually didn't correlate with the other paragraphs next to it. The prologue is even more confuaing as it is very different from the first chap. Basically the story is just really messed up from what I read

I wasn't gonna write a review but then some dude went super critical of this. My experience with this novel isn't much but I'll say this much. It has potential. There's the typical ploy of "I don't have enough money" but I'm fairly certain most people can relate to this feeling so including it in novels isn't negative. Furthermore, I've read a lot of cheat novels and his cheat, if nothing else, is delivered well. It provides actual information unlike others which are super vague which is something I can... more>> appreciate. I'm not gonna lie, is it the best novel I've ever read? No. Is it the best novel you will ever read? Probably not. But at the end of the day, if you found this then I'm a solid 60% positive that you weren't looking for the best novel you've ever read. Give it a shot, hate it or like it. <<less

Okay, let me break this down for you:

  1. The first third of every chapter starts with an explanation of how miserable the game is, that the MC is playing and how it is dependent on spending huge sums of money or sheer luck. Every. Damn. Chapter.
  2. Oh no! The MC needs a certain skill or an item to slay a monster or complete a quest! What's he going to do?! Oh, here you go, he gets it at the end of the chapter so he doesn't have to search for it the next chapter! WOW!
    No, really, there is no hardship at all. Everything falls into the lap of the MC when he just so thinks about it.
  3. Every character, be it the MC or anyone else in the story are just empty husks without character, only existing to further the wish-fulfillment of the author.
I've read really, really shitty works before that I couldn't possibly confess to anyone on the internet, but this?
Waste of time, really. I'm quite bummed that I needed 56chapters before realising this.

I'm dropping it at 18 chapters because he has barely even played the game and when he does he describes it as the shitiest, most p2w game with a super toxic fan base. Tbf, it really might be the worst game, RNG everything and even when he gets a legendary class- LITERALLY nothing changes!?
The most annoying thing about this whole novel is, when he levels up he disregards 90 'normal rank cards' in exchange for picking 'fireball' a basic fire attack that is rank F, wtf were the 90... more>> cards he discarded to be worse than a basic rank F spell!?.!?

Also why is every Korean MC struggling to pay his damned bills, do people not have jobs in Korea? You either work for Samsung or are dirt poor until you make money in VRMMOs, is that how it is there?!

Also, it mentions baseball as if that has anything to do with it, it's barely even a sport, one which requires no thinking and no real physical effort. It would have made more sense if he worked in construction ffs.

Also, he doesn't make any money for ages despite how desperate he is?! Also, despite having 4 figures of money left in his account, he buys ice cream and then some medicine that cost 10, 000... that's 5 figures on the medicine alone, why do all Korean authors have such short attention spans.

edit: I read further up to Ch32, I would give this novel a negative score if I could. It's so bad I'm starting to think it's a translation error. One minute he spends 2 hours looking for a npc, the LITERAL next minute, he can see his quest markers globally!

His main motivation for playing is to make money but 32 chapters in he has hoarded every item, even ones that aren't that good AND not sold any information, even the tutorial stage ones.

His ONLY source of income is from an insurance scam hahaha, how is this not the worst novel ever written? <<less

The story outline is basically a copy of legendary moonlight sculptor, but in this case the MC has a cheat. His personality is tr*sh, and there seems to be no character development. A simple read if you just like power ups and pubstomping.

Side note: Black translation please just F off, releasing garbage quality "translation" that's just mtl. Kobatochan is notorious for their erratic updates but at least it's comprehensible.

This author wrote 5 works which I finished 3 of them and they are all very good and fun to read.

The author is trying to make the premise of the novels diverse but something that all of them have is that the MC is mostly disadvantaged compared to his enemies, but this one unexpectedly gave him a cheat.

And for those who said the author doesn't have skill, I recommend reading works of our skillful chinese authors (heh!)

Although machine translated, I still read to the end:

Reading this story is like eating a plate of bad sweet and sour chicken to me. The sauce and vegetables (premise) are fine, however the batter on the chicken is so thick (constant interjection of extraneous info) that there is hardly any meat in each chapter. It makes it hard for me to immerse myself in the story since I have to peel the excess batter off (skim through the chapters.)

I don't know if it was the TL, or the original source, or something else, but I am having trouble catching who is who in conversations. Maybe people's names that was being too similar with each other.

The story seems pretty normal, a guy who get unorthodox power for his use in VR game, I will rate it for 3 stars for now, because it doesn't feel like it's something special as of the current translated chapter. I hope it has a lot more comedies in the future chapters, because the... more>> author seems like he's trying to make the characters funny. <<less
