This is a fairly interesting eSports novel that features MC and ML as they compete in tournaments that offer a mix of MMORPG, 2v2 arenas, team death match, and MOBA games. There are a lot of technical aspects of this novel that are pretty standard in MMORPGs and games in general, so it's understandable that this might be boring or confusing for some people. Unfortunately, the confusion is compounded by the fact that the translation is MTL and the translator didn't localize or didn't know the equivalent terms for many... more>> things.

There were many terms that were left as direct translations including but not limited to:

health/HP - blood
mana/MP - blue
critical HP - residual blood
heal - adding blood
AoE - group attack
lifesteal - blood sucking
support - auxiliary
remote - ranged
output - DPS
spawn/respawn - born/refresh
stacks - layers

I will admit that I was a little confused the first time I saw a paragraph that included blood (HP), blood-kin (race), blood loss per second (DoT), blood sucking (lifesteal), and blood abilities.

There were a many CPs but the romance was very much lacking. It's only in the extras that romance plays a part in many of the CPs and for some reason the side CP Bai Xuan and Xie Shurong got more screen time than the main CP.

Actually, the side CPs are more interesting than the main CP who are too perfect. After MC and ML got together, everything was smooth sailing for them and they never had any disagreements whatsoever. In this regard, the side CPs are much more realistic and likable.

Nonetheless, this was still an enjoyable read with well developed characters. <<less

It's not like other danmei who take gaming as the background of the love story, this story is TOTALLY about E-sport. The MC start again from scratch: new game character, level up, building guild, searching for team mates, make a new team, enter professional e-sport league, training the newcomer, slowly climbing up to the championship.

What I like the most is the strategic battle of each game. Our MC is talented and hard working gamer. And I always curious about how our MC strategy to take... more>> down his opponent in each games. Like, really, it always surprise you and found it entertaining.

I know nothing about e-sport but I thoroughly enjoy the story.

Minor down points:
1. If you looking for romance, this novel is really not for you.
2. Everybody is gay. I found a lot of the same case in many danmei story. I know it's a BL, but please, why make so many side character who also gay.

But anyway, it's totally a long journey, but you will entirely enjoy the ride. I found the pace is just correct without any filler chapters. <<less

This is like what I've been waiting for in a bl gaming book! (is there even any besides this one?) I always loved The King's Avatar and I still am a huge fan of it. The only thing that I wished it had was a happier ending (?) and maybe some relationships and more character background/history, which God Level Summoner has. (OH! Plus it has the international arc with our main characters together *-*, totally my favorite part!!)

This is litterally a tiny bit less technical (like there isn't 10... more>> chapters describing one match) and fluffier version (wahhh! too much cat food!) of The King's Avatar. Everyone in the team are all foodies as well, it's totally hilarious. They're totally a bunch of cats! (lol you'll get my really bad joke if you read it) What's there not to like? Especially since it's bl, MWAHAHAHAHA!!

Okay I'll stop now..... :P <<less

First review. I am sorry if it is somewhat chaotic.

Got hooked after the first few translated chapters and have been MTLing it.

Rainbow Turtle's translations are well done and update frequently. (This is why I give it 5 stars even though I am not far into the story)

About the shou/gong question: The translator confirmed at the end of ch. 6 that ... more>>

the MC is the shou, not the gong. The ML is not the Bai Xuan.


Definitely feels like a BL version of The King's Avatar. MC's team gets disbanded and he begins to build a new team. I am not far into it, but I have enjoyed it so far. No quick romance. At ch. 19 I don't know who ML will be, but there may be hints of of romance for two other characters.

Only thing that has bothered me so far is that the MC is still OP after a two year break from the game he began playing again. The author made a big deal about how so much had changed during the time he was playing the other game, but after what seemed like five minutes looking at the forums hes already in top condition. <<less

Unexpectedly hooked. Binged it from the start to the lastest translated chapter, and what can I say


It does give you like a King's Avater moment, but its LESS (just a tiny bit) detailed and intense as King's Avatar who throughly discuss how to get there and the step-by-step process. In God Level Summoner, it focus more on the relationship in between characters rather the detail equipment build, the stuff they have to sell to get more funds, game management politics, etc.

The characters are very... more>> likable and not very annoying as other game novels. No revenge here what so ever. So expect the story to be light, not as dark and heavy. Truly sportsmanship all around here. (Psst somewhat like Free! Swimming club or Haikyuu)

So give it a try! <<less

I really like this book, it's well written with great characters.

The romance is straight foward and I really like the perseverance and patient of MC.

ML is also great, suportive and loving.

... more>> The reason that is was not a 5 stars for me was because of the poor description, stereotype and prejeduce the author showed in his writing toward other races or countries when describing some scenes about the World tournament. I pretty much skip that part because it was too cringe worthy for me and went straight to the extras.

It's still a good read and I recommend. The translation is really good. <<less

Cat God is pretty awesome. Demon king is very cool. There's lots of fluff and gaming action sequences. The technical side isn't so drawn out that it makes regular readers eyes glaze over (happened to me a couple of times in TKA). If you like TKA than you'll like this, as long as you don't mind BL. Someone complained that there are too many couples and I kind of agree. It seems like almost everyone is paired off and ratio is way skewed (almost all the captains and vice captains... more>> in the pro league have a same s*x interest or partner). There are so many that I don't really care about at least half of them, and end up wishing it would just get back to the actual MC.

there's the usual fanatical nationalism to be found and some racist comments/descriptions which are par for the course in many modern Chinese novels. I thought the way the author portrayed the black guy in the basketball competition at the New York World Carnival was particularly appalling. I'm really hoping it's not as bad at the World Championship or i'll probably end up dropping a star. on another note, after seeing it mentioned so many times in the beginning of the story I actually got really distracted trying to figure out why Xie Shurong is forced to eat half-cooked steak every day? Maybe he doesn't know he can order other foods in a cafeteria? Maybe he doesn't know he can order it well-done? Maybe that's the only food he knows how to order (though that doesn't seem likely since he's been there a couple years) ? Whenever they go out to eat "authentic Western food" its always half-cooked steak. Now I'm left wondering; do the Chinese think all Westerners sit around eating steak all the time? Because I only eat it about five times a year, (if that), and I don't know anyone else who eats steak as a part of a regular diet, let alone eating it every day. It's been bugging me since I started reading the novel; is this a common misconception in China? <<less

I know I have only read to chapter 9, but so far this novel is surprisingly boring. It is a slice of life novel for sure... so much so that there is really no story, it is just the characters playing games and living a normal life. Someone even said it is slow until around chapter 80?? There is nothing to keep me reading, which is kind of rare for me. The Characters are pretty lame, all very chill and only focused on playing the game. The story has nothing... more>> going on so far, there isn't really any comedy or drama, the mystery of who gets with who was filled out from the very beginning and they are pretty much already together with no relationship progression or teasing/spice. I really don't see anything that can keep me reading this... again, I only read 9 chapters, but that seems plenty of time to capture the reader somewhere and to give at least some sort of mystery to keep you reading out of curiosity alone.... The most interesting thing about the novel is that one of the characters has a slight illness that is easily curable... but that was the first hurdle of the novel and it was dealt with as easily and as fast as squishing an ant. Even in the gaming part of the novel, the MC has such a smooth and effortless time leveling and creating his team, there is nothing else happening. No backstory, no curious or interesting characters, not even any backside gossip to clue into anything happening in the future. When I feel like reading more, I will update, but I am too bored for now. At least it isn't badly written, and it isn't necessarily a bad story. <<less

I wish this series would go on for a a few more hundred chapters. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if it basically became One Piece, with no discernible end in sight. However, without Old Cat, I guess it wouldn't be the same anymore, so I understand why it stops just short of 400 chapters, because it's essentially his story. The reason why I want it to go on is because it's such a comfortable read, just like Loving Master's Wife. I can read just a chapter and then put it down... more>> at anytime without inwardly going 'noooooo'. But it's also interesting enough that I can binge tens of chapters in a row. The gaming is well-written and exciting, even for a gaming noob like me. The characters and couples are all interesting in their own way with different characteristics, so you'll definitely find a character you like. I personally enjoy them all.

I'm probably making it sound like it's boring af, but that's far from the truth. It's enjoyable, but not in a blood-stirring way, and that's a compliment. I recommend this even for non-gamers. The translator is also super fast, kudos! <<less

Love it! This is a gaming novel and really fun to read as long as you enjoy reading about the game mechanisms and tactics. Super light and fluffy with no major drama. This is a very peaceful and exciting rise to the top for the MC. No major plot twists but the author still captures the attention of the readers. 100% recommendation


Basically while there are wins and losses in the games. It’s generally very smooth flowing for the MC. There’s also no issues with any of the CPs.

Shot right up to be one of my favorite novels ever. When I read the first chapter, I already knew I was going to love it. How could I not, with my favorite LN ever being the King's Avatar? My only regrets about TKA were the absolute lack of romance, the series being way too long and detailed about games and the competition, and the series just ending with YX being the captain of the world competition. Totally unsatisfying ending. But this novel fixes all of that, and more.

Godly, OP... more>> MC. Godly, OP ML. Amazing romance. Hilarious and well-developed teammates and friends. Detail but not too much detail about the game and competition. Epilogues. Actual world competition. It truly checked off all of my boxes. Plus, the summoner character is definitely really interesting. I loved the lack of fighting and chasing around in the game itself as there was in TKA, I loved that the MC was able to find a supportive and strong organization as his support, but most importantly I love the MC and ML together. They're actually so sweet and cavity-inducing. The five (four?) other couples are just as sweet, and even the budding friendships/relationships between the younger generation are adorable. I was so attached to the characters. I loved how they were able to blow through the competition without many problems, not like in TKA where YX would still lose a bunch and there would be tons of chapters on those games. I love the MC's straightforward personality. When he realizes that he loves the ML, he goes for it, and I love that he and the ML understand each other so well. I feel bad for the ML for waiting so many years for the MC, but it was worth it. They love and understand each other so deeply, I probably have cavities now. I do wish the epilogue for them was longer, and that there were more scenes of them together. I need to know more. I am so happy I read this novel. Words cannot express the joy I felt when I found out the novel was actually completely translated. An absolute favorite. <<less

The comparison to The King's Avatar is apt given the similar e-sports settings. However, the novel focuses less on the power fantasy aspect and oddly enough, moves a faster pace. Unfortunately, this difference also leads to far less tension, which makes it harder to sustain interest based on the plot alone. For a BL novel though, this is good enough. Another difference is that the slice of life moments are fluffier and tilted towards food and romance. This can also be a decent read for readers who don't like too... more>> much romance (even of the BL kind). There isn't the emasculation of the MC that's common in BL novels even though his love interest is strong and independent. In fact, they are presented as equals. Nonetheless, for such readers, the possessive thoughts of the love interest might still be uncomfortable and the slice of life scenes might seem like too much filler.

More on the tradeoff between power fantasy and pace:


the MC has no dark past of getting betrayed and doesn't have to spend a long time preparing to go against established guilds and teams as an upstart, so there are less scenes of behind the scenes drama and machinations. Fights and engagements are also less drawn out.

MTLing it cause I couldn't take the suspense; it actually gets translated quite well compared to others.

After reading it up to where I have, I must say that I wished it had more chapters. I don't feel that 393 chapters are enough to soothe the wave of fluff feels that I have for this novel :3...

It's an excellent "feel good" story, with lots of different cute couples and cute platonic bromance scenes to keep readers' hearts occupied while the main couple's love line slowly develops.

Not bad so far, but from the first few chapters I can already tell the main character is the gong (seme). Not really my cup of tea so I'll probably be dropping this pretty soon. The story is however pretty interesting, especially for those that like mmorpg or esport novels. The translations are done pretty well too, so if you like bl its worth a look.

What a journey this was, following Cat God (Li Cangyu) on his path to glory in the esports world with his ML, as well as cute additional side pairings. If you like esports and MMORPG (FFXIV, Guild Wars 2, WOW) team PVPS this is the story for you. It is heavily centered on esports and romance is a subplot and develops naturally between characters. Lot of flirting and meng with the spicy bits in the extra chapters at the end. This novel is the second one in a trilogy that... more>> are only loosely tied together with character references/appearances so you don't miss out on much.

Love this story! I love how there's an inner circle with all the professional gamers, and they all know (or suspect) each other's relationships with each other. I like that there are multiple CPs other than the main one. The ML is really kind and considerate to the MC, and they treat each other as equals. The MC maintains his intellectual, cunning, upbeat personality even after getting together with the ML which I am grateful for. And I like how the MC still continues to work hard towards his goals... more>> rather than leave everything up to the ML to do. A lot of the novels that I've been reading lately has the MC rely on the OP ML for everything once they fall in love and it's getting kinda boring and repetitive.

Overall, very fluffy and exciting story about two god-level gamers in love pursuing their passions for e-sports. Highly recommend this story for anyone wanting to read a cute BL novel with a realistic romantic development between couples. The only downside is that the romance is pretty slow. You don't get any real signs of a romance occurring until around chapter 90 or so. <<less

Though I'm usually not a fan of video game stories, this one is niiiiiiice!!

The MC is straightforward and his obsession with fish is d*mn near hilarious.

The ML is supportive and patient.

The side characters and their stories keeps the story going. Their interactions where often too entertaining.

So why give it 4 stars instead of 5? 🤔 Glad you asked! 😌 While the game itself was easy to follow and exciting at times, it really consumed so much of the story it kind of had me skipping craploads of text.

Otherwise, hella niiiiiiiiice!!!

Such a cute and fluffy story (O///O)

I haven’t finished this, but until now it’s pretty much pure fluff, zero drama and a very well written story.

So full marks from me.
