Ok so... This one has lots of wasted potentials. The plots, strategies, systems... All of them could have been great, if the author did it right. Unfortunately nope.

The potentially great system was made into s*upidly weird nonsensical skill mechanics like author doesn't actually play games, even though the premise was inside a game. Who the fucc thinks *skill points* are spent to *activate skills* even after you have *bought the skills using the exact same skill points*? And not to mention the stat system. It's garbage. If it's an actual... more>> game you'd see "very negative" review on steam just for this single factor.

The strategies that should have been the highlights, the prima donna of the story, has been butchered to bits and chunks. There aren't nearly enough parts where author could've had explained the plans and tactics, but nope. Author decided to "enemy spotted. Execute plan a. Don't ask questions. Happily ever after." button.

There are multiple POVs. Truly wasted POVs. All other POVs don't even serve any purpose, you can skip them and you won't miss anything. They're not even entertaining, just "Damn you mc" blahblah thing.

3 out of 5 because regardless of those wasted potentials, it still has potentials each TL group gets 1 star, the story deserves 1 star. So 3 stars in total. <<less

This is a relatively new series which I feel have tremendous potential of growing into something nice, the main problem however is the translation. While I thank the translators for their efforts i’m afraid as it is it only appears to be a little above MTL, the chapters need some heavy editing, the phrase structure is all over the place, some words seem to be out of place.

So far, with its current quality anyone with a good english level will have a hard time reading and enjoying the story, yet... more>> I still chose to give it a relatively high rating as I feel that it has potential and God knows we definitely need more kingdom building novels. <<less

(edit c 39) decent plot, bad character writing. I just can't continue to read this anymore. The characters are like npc, oh MC is amazing blah blah. Everyone has only two reactions, either worship MC or belittle him. The MC monologue is like he is doing something revolutionary everytime even on simplest things and he is too much confident on his every actions like the phropet he us.

(edit c21) the author talks like he is bragging about his genius strategy but it only amounts to something that... more>> any logical person can do. His strategies are heavily reliant on his game knowledge which is too convenient for the plot. it is only a few chapters as of yet, I hope the author grew as he write further.

(old review) very nice medieval fantasy novel. I would prefer it if the game mechanics is turned down al little bit more.

my only problem is the characters reaction is a little too convenient for the protagonists actions. It feels so weird that everyone not antagonist just go along with shit. No convincing dialogue or persuasions. <<less

It was an interesting read, but I got bored after a while due to not being a big fan of the kingdom/war subgenre. The reason for 4 instead of 5 was a due to some parts in the story seemed to skip a scene, making it hard to follow along and understand. I also wish there was more character development

I like this one, it's pretty refreshing compared to isekai tensei soudouki and genjitshugi yuusha. A lot of convenient solutions appear but it doesn't seem too obvious when you keep reading as compared to other novels in which the plot is forced. I'm really enjoying this one as there is no harem so far and only one female lead and the MC isn't focused on romance till his goal is accomplished like every beta japanese MC but it's not bad, because he is not overpowered and there are people stronger... more>> than him, so he can't use his gaming abilities liberally.

Yeah this feels like a really good kingdom building novel with nice touch of game elements in how he finds talented individuals to place as his vassals and more than anything this novel is pretty similar to the Korean manhwa/web novel Bug player.

Pretty good so far that I read all the available chapters in one day, I want more chaps if I'm being honest. I am a simple man I read I like I give 5 stars. <<less

Story was good from the start especially the illustration but then the story just became too convenient for him. Well, it is to be expected as he already knew the history of the game but the challenges he was facing in the story was just solved by him without breaking a sweat. In sense that it was just too convenient.

It is a waste tho, I liked the setting and the illustration but for me it can't offset having a bad world building and an intresting storyline.

Spoiler

from the start his character was crooked/tr*sh which was ok. His territory had financial problem but was anticlimactically solved because their familly had immense wealth stored up magically for generations just for him to spend.

There was also a part when they recaptured a castle. His role was important as he was the one to call for reinforcement while opening the gate alone. Then the duke rushed in with his troops. So the credit as mentioned to the king should go to the duke while the duke gives a good word on the MC being a hero/game changer. I mean the duke is higher ranked than him

And also the part when they were on siege defense. They poured molten metal on the battering rams. This was very impossible as you need a large furnace on top of a wall big enough to contain enough molten metal to destroy it. And it would be very very inefficient and a waste of precious materials. They could have dropped burning coal or hot flaming oil.

If you likes Isekai Tensei Sodouki, but without harem, "creative" invention and business, then this novel would be perfect for you.

Having reading this from chapter 1 to chapter 62 in one night, this shows how great this novel is to me..

Some people said MC solved all problem all too easily, and convenient things keep happening around him, but I have to disagree.

Convenient things happened? Yes sure, everyone have their own luck, even our MC. But he's not really all that lucky to be honest, it just that he gambled and... more>> used his few luck to overcome the situation, and this situation, is done by strategies. All these strategies he shown doesn't smell cheap at all either, they require proper, ingenious way of thinking. The way he do things and even his way of thinking befitted of someone who rank 1st on that strategy game he played.

The best thing about this novel, the romance is not forced at all, its so natural and feels real. The relationship of human in this story are also very real, every characters, even minor characters, feels alive. In this story, everyone have their own motives and desire when doing something, they're not just some robot that exist just as fodders to mc's stories.

Of course, there's a bit of plot hole in this story

Spoiler

for example, using a skills that requires target to move above, but he did it without target.

But it was negligible, and rarely done. <<less

The story is quite entertaining so far. The way the MC reacts is understandable and relatable (I mean, who wouldn't feel confident and confident when you have precognition in war?). Character development is proceeding nicely and it would take another 30/40 chapters when I can say for sure whether the character development is good or bad.

The underwhelming for this story? The plot is a bit generic for Kingdom Building, but probably because there's a System function. It could change in the future where the System wouldn't play a major role,... more>> but I don't think this will change. The heroine is nowhere to be seen yet, but I think this is good because there's no reason for the heroine to show up yet. I mean, with the womanising reputation, why would she appear now?

In conclusion, read 7 chapter then make up your mind. This story is much more fun to read when you binge reading instead of read one chapter each week. If the translator is reading this, I recommend you turn on Brave publisher so that you can get BAT donations. I don't think people will read this story frequently because of how the story itself build-up (unless you plan to speed up your translation, which looks to be a bad idea since there's only 75 chapters). <<less

It's alright; nothing outrageously awful here. Some of the battles and schemes are well thought-out and exciting to read.

Seems like the average kingdom-building WN. The MC starts with a disadvantage in power that he has to make up with his wits until he gets stronger, but only for a slightly stronger foe to appear then. That's how this type of novel works and this does a good job at that.

Sometimes the protagonist is conveniently OP, you know, just strong to beat the enemy commander or boss he's facing at the... more>> moment. Though his OPness has a lot of restrictions and flavor text, they are irrelevant because the author always has a new feature of the system or a new hidden perk that makes the MC a god for a single battle.

There's pretty much zero character development; no meaningful introspection or exploration of their inner world. Clearly not a character driven novel and wouldn't expect it to be like that anyway.

I'd say it's satisfying as a power fantasy where not everything is literally handed out to the protagonist but there's still an impenetrable plot armor that makes him win in the end even though not everything works out as the protagonist first intended.

Also, some chapters are like 200 words long, some are +1k words. Most end abruptly, making it feel like a draft for a future story, so I have doubts about the consistency of the plot and the characters as it goes on. <<less

it's really good, not the best maybe, but enough to be better than most novels out there. Only down side is it's a little bit of a munchkin compared to other strategy novels. But then it's deleted in COO, maybe a remake would be done one day.

Mediocre at best

Fights aren't interesting since the person with the higher stats auto-wins battles. Characters aren't compelling either and have no goals.

All you're left with is explanations of how he turned the tide each time. There is no substance or intrigue to keep you interested.
