Liu Zilang had a well-kept secret — he was a prodigy in competitive FPS eSports. His specialty? CSGO. He even entered the finals in the prestigious world tournament.

Alas, his team fell short due to Liu Zilang’s inexperience. Shattered by the fact, Liu Zilang vanished from the eSports scene. That was until his friends got him to play a new game known as PUBG.

Liu Zilang’s life turned around and he began to make his comeback. Follow Liu Zilang as he encounters difficult situations, all while learning to open up as a person, but more importantly as a brother.

I feel like the characters in this novel are quite bland. The motivations are impossible to relate to and his goals just aren't worthy of caring about. In the first place, it wasn't a good idea to write a novel about a real game, much less a FPS game. At least if it's an RPG/MMORPG, you get some proper interactions with other people and events can be kind of funny and interesting (even then, I prefer to limit myself to futuristic VRMMORPGs), but it's different when it comes to a... more>> realistic FPS game. After all, you never see people roleplaying or interacting in an interesting way in FPS games, it's all about yelling and trying to rush to kill others or perhaps camping somewhere, maybe there'll be some minor cooperation between people, some "strategy" if you will. The amount of truly interesting events that could possibly happen in a novel like this is severely limited. This results in a boring storyline that becomes quite unrealistic when the author tries to push things, because we, as gamers, KNOWS how things are supposed to be. There's no trying to trick us with half-arsed explanations. Nope. He's playing PUBG, he can't change things to his liking in order to make things more interesting. Talk about restricting oneself.

Anyway, the story seems to be about reconnecting with his sister or whatever, seems she likes the game. This idea never really struck any chords with me at all. Don't get me wrong, I have a sister, so that's not why. Or rather, maybe that's why I can't get moved by this at all. It's exaggerated and doesn't feel right to me.

Well, we all know what we're getting here. I know that I opt to get out now because this novel has already proven itself to be unworthy of my time after 18 chapters. Maybe you're different, maybe you just LOVE FPS games and are the type that, unlike me, likes watching streams and other people playing games, be it digital games or stuff like soccer/football. Then, just maybe, this might be a decent novel for you. As for me, I never saw the point in watching other people play something I can play myself if I want to. Especially not an overly dramatized version like this where the author pretends that this game is the best in the world, which truly made me laugh with scorn. It can't even reach more than 1/5 for me. I guess it could RELUCTANTLY reach a 2/5 if I didn't hate the game as much (made sure that this didn't matter much in my scoring of the novel though, if it was written in a truly awesome and ingenious way, it wouldn't have mattered what game it was).

Anyway, let's also include a little heads-up for some people who are uninformed about this game and why I think this particular novel is probably one of the worst of its type to bring to a non-chinese audience, I'll place it in a spoiler bubble so that you can read it only if you want to since it's pretty unrelated to the review itself, it's mainly there to show you some facts if you're interested. It's also nice to know why so many people hate this novel merely because they don't like the game and thus why it's not a good choice for other readers than chinese ones, right?

Spoiler

This game, the real one, is a shooter that you can find on steam. It used to be a slightly decent game at the start, at least it was playable. However, this changed with the invasion of the great chinese. Chinese cheaters and extreme racists entered the servers of other countrise en masse. From then on, you'd get chinese people everywhere. They brought along with them high ping which reduced the server performance and gave weird hitboxes for people with low ping, this in itself gave them a massive advantage even without having to TRULY cheat. After that, you'd notice that if you were a foreigner, you'd get chased down by a group of immature chinese twits. God forbid mentioning that you're japanese or korean and absolutely don't have a name that lets this off, otherwise they will, for sure, yell in chinese before running after you and screaming things in broken english, like "china numbah wan", which is to expected from immature brats with inferiority complexes and an upbringing so backwards as to be seemingly a bit reminiscent of what you might find in germany during the holocaust.

Well, it's not really interesting to play a game where so many players:

1: can't speak english after joining servers where english is the primary language

2: are extremely racist

3: cheats like there's no tomorrow, it was never amusing to be instantkilled over and over again by unskilled people, especially not when it's so obviously a cheat by doing this which are truly impossible no matter how "skilled" you are

4: brings down servers with their presence alone thanks to ping.

Other than that, it's also not interesting to play a game where the moderators in charge of it doesn't care about all of this because these chinese people are the ones bringing in the most cash, they don't even want to region lock this cancerous player base even though that'd be the best choice. By the way, you actually have to PAY REAL MONEY to unlock things that you EARN in game. This game wasn't even good from the start, haha. Well, the presence of so many chinese cheaters is because they've pretty much pushed out people from other countries who doesn't want to play anymore because of them and because, since you can earn money for items in game, people are farming it (which is probably a big reason for the excessive cheating). After all, we all have our experiences with chinese cheats and bots in games where they want to earn money. Like farming bots and gold sellers in WoW or in this case, cheating for more in-game stuff that can be sold afterwards.

Note: stating facts doesn't make me a racist, it's not about that. I'm very well aware that a majority of the chinese playerbase are NOT cheaters they are innocent and unrelated to the behavior of these people. They suffer just as much as the rest of the players do because of these cheating racists, perhaps even more so because they get screwed over by these bastards and thus they get hated on by everyone despite having done nothing wrong because the bastards are the ones that show themselves, making a great impact. It's kind of sad.
