PUBG Online Romance of the Century


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As a new anchor of StarTV, Yu Yan’s ruthless tr*sh-talk, natural rifle-shooting skills, and character of never searching houses earned him a big crowd of fans.

He felt like he was a good anchor who treated all fans of his stream equally—you can suck at the game, you can get knocked down, but if you want the gun in my hand, sorry, no way man.

Until he heard the voice of the streaming platform’s Big Boss.

Yu · ultimate voice-con · Yan: I’m not familiar with this game, swap my Kar98k for your Mini-14.

Yi · brand new noob · Chen: En.

Friend: Daddy, I want to snipe too!

Yu Yan: I think this frying pan suits you very well.

Not-a-very good gamer but dripping with money and looks Big Boss vs Cute, super good tr*sh-talking gunslinger voice-con Anchor.

4.5 stars

Oh I found this story rather unique even for the usual gaming novel. Instead of noob MC with secret OP ML, it's expert MC with noob ML. I liked the premise. Even though game talk made me tilt my head a bit. Really grateful for the quality translation. Then I read to the latest translated chapter, it was sooo good that I rushed to the raws to complete it with some help from MTL for the gaming part. Ya, it's that good.

Only minus 0.5 stars because of some minor... more>> irritating misunderstandings that got me mildly frustrating. Nothing too bad. Just small misunderstandings, typical but annoying.

But overall the romance is really sweet. The face slapping is nice and satisfying. The emotional aspect is actually a bit deeper than I expected too.

MC has a sad past without parents and got cheated by a company over money issues. ML has a more complex emotional stuff going on because while he is more 'cold', he's really in a more lonely position too away from others. But he does have people good to him such as his cousin even though that cousin (poor naïve child) always unknowingly pits against him hahaha. I think one of the sweet family moment was when ML realised that his cousin had sent him birthday presents the past few years but he didn't realise it cos the cousin sent it to his company without leaving his name (and naïve cousin didn't realise too).


Sweet ending too so overall a really nice gaming story that wasn't too heavy on the gaming aspect so a plus for me (since I'm not too good with that).

And extra plus, I just love the extras at the end for MC's friend. That could easily be a whole short story in my opinion. MC's friend is hilarious. +++++ For him haha! <<less

interesting and fun for the most part. MC isn't an idiot, ML isn't a yandere. There was some laugh out loud moments at the start when games didn't go quite the way he expected, and some drama later on. Of course, no story in the entertainment genre is ever written without lots of people trying to black the MC at one point or the other, even if he's a livestreamer rather than an actor or idol. ML drove me a little nuts at times, (low eq), but overall it... more>> was cute. ignore the 1s. They're usually the stallion/harem loving crowd who get triggered by the genres yaoi or shounen-ai, and instantly rate all of it a 1. Apparently, they are offended by BL showing up on the recent releases page and can't figure out how to use the filter. <<less

Bah, ignore the 1-star ratings!

Ignore the ranking!

With the power of rotten fans, we can overcome this!

The novel has a very promising start.

The beginning is strong and -like every other high-quality BL novel found on Chrysanthemum Garden- the translation quality is just- mwuacks. 10/10 so far! It's certainly easy to read and understand. Thank you to the people who contributed to the novel.

This is a BL Esports Novel. It's focused on the new anchor/game streamer, Yu Yan, who has a very good voice!

... more>>

Yu Yan has that kind of quality voice to sound like a meng sister and a good brother, noted in Ch 3! Quite the humourous talent~


Yu Yan is a skilled tr*sh-talker; he can back up his talk with his skills in shooting! He's a breath of fresh air and is unique.

We're already given the heads up on who the ML is early on!

Surprise! It's Yi Chen!


So far, my impression of ML from all 5 chapters can be summed up like this -

ML: Watches Yu Yan play PUBG

Yu Yan: Ah! I remember you! You're my first viewer from day 1!

ML: 'Happy.'


I would insert an innuendo there but I'm sure you'll catch my drift if you subtract the last four words Yu Yan says. Wuwuwu, enjoy the dog food~


I'll be sticking around in the future for more updates.

Give this novel a try, you'll like this novel!

I would like people to stop giving 1 rating because this story is soooo amazingly funny and sweet.

The author doing a great job convey the popular game of PUBG. I'm actually not a person who prefers game type novel but I'm hooked at the first chapter, making me want to play the game.

If you enjoy sweet but face slapping MC, you should read this. I highly recommend it!

The ML so far is one big mystery. (Like always)

Trust me, you won't regret it.

This shouldn't be ranked so low - it's a promising start to an BL eSports novel.'

Yu Yan (MC) is a college student who is recruited to be a game streamer. So far what we know about him is 1. He has gaming skills, 2. He has a nice voice, and 3. He has a good sense of humor.

Chapter 1 is a little boring, but Chapter 3 is pretty funny.

Yi Chen is the mysterious ML. No info about him yet.

I agree with ria. green, this novel doesn't deserve a rating of 3.8 as it's not that bad of a read. I've rated it 5 to compensate for the low rating, it definitely deserves a rating above 4 stars.

The info mentioned by ria. green is a bit wrong tho, because the MC doesn't seem to be a college student? I've read six chapters and he comes off as someone who's avoiding his responsibilities and not studying despite being 19. Maybe he becomes a college student later on? I don't know.... more>> But his lack of education kinda turns me off a bit... I've grown up valuing education above everything else and here he is, going against that very value my life abides by, so I'm not much of a fan.

Also, this novel seems to have that cutie, dumb (cause no college, remember?) shou x overbearing, rich, cold CEO setting with is way too overused. I've read it so many times that I've lost interest but this doesn't mean the novel is bad. It's decent.

Rough Explanation of PUBG:

PUBG is a very easy game to understand. I'm a rookie but I know the basics so it isn't hard to follow. This is a battle royal game in which about 50 or 100 (I don't remember the exact number) players drop down from a plane into a map at their chosen location. Then they sneak around gathering weapons, med kits, bullets, etc. and fight amongst themselves until only one person is left standing. The players can form teams as well, they voice chat to know whereabouts and cooperate to win (it's not like only one player can win, if a team is the last one standing, all of the alive team members are considered winners).

Also, a huge circle appears after some time at a random place on the map and players are required to remain inside it, the ones who are left outside end up dying; this means that when the circle appears, there is a mad dash wherein players from all over the map rush to come inside the circle (lucky ones are already in, cause the appearance of the circle is random). Players already in the safe zone (aka the circle) attempt to kill off the ones who try to rush in and many actually succeed, hence lowering the number of survivors. This circle keeps on shrinking so this mad dash continues, it's chaotic. The smaller the circle, the less number of survivors are left.

In a team, there can be four players at a time. They are numbered from 1 to 4 randomly. They communicate through voice and there isn't an option to chat. Also, if a team member dies, he/she can follow their alive team members to see how they're playing. This dead member wouldn't be considered a winner tho, if the team wins. For example, let's say team member number 3 is a dead but she wishes to watch her team members' fight, she'll just watch the screen like a live movie where her other team members are fighting, she actually can't control anything but she can watch. Let's say, in her team, the other three (1, 2, & 4) actually end up the winners, these three would be the winners cause they're a team and still alive but their dead teammate (our girl, 3) wouldn't be considered a winner. I hope this makes it clear.

Also, in a team, when the players usually drop down from the plane at the beginning, they usually pair up and meet up with the other pair to play together. Example: Let's say, player 1 & 3 decided to jump together and player 2 & 4 decided to jump together, they would communicate and drop close to each other and meet up, then fight to win.

Do mention if I'm wrong since I haven't played PUBG personally but I know how it works... a bit. <<less

Story about a newly employed anchor and big boss fan! This has a shared universe with Guide on How to fail at Online D...!
I love MC, such a likable character. He just became one of my favorite shou (I especially love characters that know what they like or sexuality already instead of figuring it out after, don't know if you understand my saying but I appreciate that). I also love ML, he stoned face person but soo endearing, basically a sugar daddy and such a die... more>> hard fan. I also love the SIDE COUPLE, Ughhhh I want to steal them (*_*), They sooooooo Cute OMG! I definitely RECOMMEND. Hopefully this author will do another novel like that, can't wait already! hahaha lol. <<less

This is a highly rated novel amongst Chinese readers and it absolutely deserves its standing. It is fun, endearing and a light-hearted read. There is no earth-shattering romance nor heart-breaking angst, instead there is warmth, giggles and the anticipation of two pure souls figuring out what love is.

The male lead is a stern man with little to no friends and has distanced himself from family due to his maturity. The main character is an up and coming streamer who has trouble facing family due to the death of both his... more>> parents. Both of them took notice of the other purely by voice but stayed for the person. It is an alluring story of two guys finding their better half and learning that life's got more to offer than just solitude. A story fit for those who are trying to heal and those who just wants something light-hearted and fun.

There's also a touch of comedy scattered throughout the story if you're up for a giggle. :) <<less

Not very deep, but still a sweet and funny romance story. The funny moments were good, but some of the tense moments weren't that great, felt a bit tedious. Overall, the story is nice if you want some sweet romance without much logic behind it. I really like that (minor spoiler)

they both fall in love before they interact IRL

As someone who likes to play games, I found this entertaining. I now have the urge to watch live streaming.

The ML and MC was adorable.

The cousin is also funny and always digging pit for himself.

... more>>

When ML avoid MC for a week. MC was jealous when he found ML giving gifts to a female game anchor. ML explained that his cousin used his account to follow that anchor.


I never thought that MC has a sad past and it became one of the issues he has to overcome. ML helped a lot on that issue.


MC used to compete and won championship games but the management doesnt pay them properly. When he had problems at home and needs money for hospital bills, they only give him few dollars. : (

When MC became popular they attempted to get money from him saying that he broke the contract. Good thing ML already knew the truth and help him settle the issue.


ML also have issues with his family and it is so heart warming that MC was there for him.

I also love the extra story of MC's best friend and his online "girlfriend". <<less

Starts really good, MC very likable - wity, selfish, with good self esteem, easily talk back when others points finger on his low education; very patient, but when moderator crossed his bottom line he did not holding back. Why 4 stars? Because author pull whole "misunderstanding" trick and MC go totaly ooc, and act like silly shy girl:

... more>>

When ML and MC did not get in relationship yet, at dinner party/award ceremony for anchors of StarTV ML goes out with woman for private talk (for like 10-20 min) and MC asks anchor at the same table (who he knows for 1-2 hours) where is ML, this anchor makes asumption that ML goes out with girlfriend and MC getting upset and drunk. Of course, this woman cannot be a colleague/relative/buisness partner/employee or something else, MC acts so ooc, why not just wait for ML answer, why he is so insecure, it just does not make sense with how MC was portrayed at the start of novel

This novel is absolutely hilarious.

I was expecting some quality comedy when I saw it was by the same author of GHFOD, and I wasn't let down. My cousin and I played mobile PUBG for about two years, so I understand most of what's going on (and even if I didn't, the translators did a great job of providing brief explanations in the notes). If you're not reading this, you're missing out on a lot.

It's so good. So very satisfying. Cute and heartwarming.. When I finished reading translated ones, I switched to mtl and I'm so glad that it's still easy to understand. Oh sorry I just can't wait anymore for the translations, , I am very grateful for the translators though but when I came to their last translated chapter, it was just a cliffhanger to me. Anyways, the author is so good. Reading it all is so worth it 😊

The ML and MC is such a perfect match. I like both of... more>> them. I don't have any cringe moment at all while reading this novel. Rather I always find both of their interactions so cute!! So fluffy!! I can't help it, my heart keeps melting. They are both adorable! ❤️ and even MC's best buddy has his own romance here which is a little funny and I like it too.

I played PuBG before so I can relate to the game. And probably some people who rated this novel a low score is because, they are not bl lovers. But for BL lovers and who likes PUBG, you better try this one out. <<less
