Lets just say that despite the author portraying the MC as an expert with many advantages over others due to information he would have because of his rebirth, and also because of all the OP skills and items he has, for some reason, "experts" would fly out of no where in the game and STILL manage to fight on par with the MC (despite MC out-gearing and having OP skills). Furthermore, for some reason, there would be an underworld organization/guild that the MC actually did not discover in his previous... more>> life (yes, even though he had quite a position in the Shadow guild, and the fact that in the current life, it seems like there are already a lot of people whom knows about that organization). Extremely flawed and horrible to read.

I can accept that he did not know about the existence of the organization. But what I can't accept is the fact that (using an analogy to describe the situation in ALL FIGHTS in this novel) despite him being a fully trained knight and geared with a full set of iron armour and sword, he is unable to fight a underfed peasant geared with only a stick. Not just that. These peasants keeps appearing out of thin air, and it isn't just one or two of such peasants being able to fight on par with him or cause the MC to struggle for his life even when he had pulled out a pistol.

All in all, only read this if you have nothing else to read. Otherwise, it's more likely that you would get annoyed as the story progresses. <<less

I agree with most of the other reviews here that it pissed of at the novel. It starts out great, being a classic 'second chance, let's remake my life in this virual world' novel but turns out to get worse and worse for every chapter.

  1. For some reason with no explination most players including the "top experts" are spending their time in the game sitting around in taverns or pubs drinking and still manage to compete with the players that spend all their time leveling up, doing insane hidden quests with insane rewards or gathering gear. Appernatly there is some form of hidden exp buff there that the dear Author just decided not to tell us about.
  2. Apperantly fights are played out so fast with basic attacks that a 0.03 difference in reaction speed is enough to decide it. At this point the Author took the agility stat which SHOULD decide how fast you can attack and threw it out the window.
  3. MC at this point is ridicolously OP because he completed several hidden unique quest and got insane luck with drops. His attributes at this point is enough to be as strong as a berserker and fast as an assassin. Oddly enough he isn't faster then a berserker that "put all his attribute points into strength along with all his gear being focused on strength aswell" even though they are the same level.
  4. Everytime the MC realise he needs alot more money fast for whatever reason, his first decision is ALWAYS to give away money or increase his expenses. "Ohhh I need to collect 30 000 gold for this quest thats due in one day? Let's increase the rewards everyone in the guild gets by killing our rival guild. We have 10 000 members so if each one of them kills one and we increase the rewards by one silver thats just 100 gold extra. Who cares?"
  5. Blacksmithing and leveling. Once again, for no reason other then that the plot demands it our MC can apperantly keep up his blacksmithing level and normal level when compared to the players that either A) Is spending all their time in the game creating items with blacksmithing, or B) spending every waking moment in the game leveling up with the help of a full guild. The explination for B is that the MC can kill high level mobs which grants extra exp but if that works why aren't EVERY OTHER GUILD DOING THE SAME?!
  6. Around chapter 380 the author decides to switch his lanes from a gaming, virutal novel story to a wuxia one. Every chapter we see insane bullsh*t wuxia techniques like "void steps, omnivision, tripple cut" e.t.c. Which are FAR superiour to every other skill in the game. If you use void steps? Well then you're invisible. Omnivision? You apperantly got eyes in the back of your head now and are impossible to hit. Now don't get me wrong. I have nothing against wuxia but if these techniques exists and the MC knew how important they were, wouldn't he have spent every waking moment trying to learn them instead of spending the first 380 chapters proving how OP hidden skills in the game is. The author LITTERALLY said that in a fight where both players can use wuxia techniques, normal in game skills are useless because they take to long to use. Apperantly stats is also useless infront of the might of wuxia techniques. "Who cares if your agility is 8 times that of mine? My wuxia bullsh*t will prevail!" Another example of this is when the MCs arributes dropped by 80% and he till managed to fight a top of the line assassin with the best gear in the game by using bullsh*t wuxia. Agility? What's that?
  7. Every single person MC meets either is A) an unbarable asshole that decides to accost the MC because they think he is weak, B) Likes the MC which means they are a future team member or C) Tries to extort items. "Hey you! Give me the rewards of the boss and we won't kill you". WHO WOULD ACTUALY SAY SOMETHING LIKE THIS?! Who in their right mind would agree to it?
  8. MCs halo dumbs everyone down. Litterally! We see several hidden enemies that are excellent in planing, managing to strategise everything thats happening in their favor, yet as soon as they come out of the shadows their IQ drops by 80%.
  9. The public opinion is quite frankly retarded in this novel. We have our MC team, they have first clear on everything, everyone is praising their greatness. Then they focus on questing for two days and another guild manages to take a first clear. All of a sudden EVERYONE starts to hate on the guild and memebers are leaving because they obiously can't compete with the other guild that got a first clear. HOW DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE?!
  10. Money rains from the sky if your coorperation is big enough apperantly. Companies is throwing in BILLIONS into the game because it seems this game will be really big. Now there is a small problem with that. Why would a company throw in so much money into the game when they aren't getting any profit out from it and they aren't getting any PR value? The companies are apperantly betting on the fact that they can trade gold for real money later on so if they conquer enough of the game they will earn back their money. What happens when every other company does so aswell? The gold price will crash, won't be worth anything and the company will have lost billions. No realistic firm would throw so much money into anything unless they can get a clear profit for it in the end.
  11. Author quite obviously don't play online games himself or have any idea how much a thousand people really is. Every fight we read about 2000 players gathering or 5000 players doing that. I don't think he has any idea how hard it is to gather 50 players to do anything, much less 1000. Hey you 1000 guild members? Stop levling up, come gather here, we have a party of 6 to kill. Even if it just takes them 15 minutes, thats 15 000 minutes they collectivly lost that they could have used to do other things. Why would they join? Oh thats right, apperantly they get paid which once again ties into point 10. Why would a company pay 10 000 people a montly sallery when there isn't any clear profit from it? Exposure? Much easier to wait and see which guilds will come outon top and then offer to sponsor them instead of throwing money left and right without knowing if their choice will prevail in the end.

Cons:

1. MC keeps getting rare drops left and right despite the very small chance of 10000 to 1 of dropping them.

2. Zhao Yueru

... more>> 3. The author has something against women. Every other chapter there will be some random girls who want to sell their bodies to the MC or some other guys so they can be carried. This is a freaking game ffs! Also literally every woman in this novel wants to warm the MC's bed.

4. Too many lucky encounters. Every single one of them could make the MC OP to be famous for 10 years.

5. Despite being way too OP, he still almost died to a lower level assassin with much much worse gears, and only managed to win due to yet another heaven defying item of his.

6. Too many random ass skills. Every single one of them is "omg I can't believe some fool is selling this super extremely rare skill!1!".

7. Zhao Yueru.

8. Everybody has no life and plays VR 24/7 including top CEOs, real assassins, etc. The game runs twice as fast as real life time, which means people with actual jobs will be severely disadvantaged due to only having their sleep time as play time (16 hours in game time compared to 48 hours a day for dedicated players) yet for some reason the top players are always some big names in real life. 9. The MC has no goal. He doesn't want to get too much attention to stay safe, yet everything he does is the opposite. 10. Heaven defying mask that is literally a cheat.

11. A sword with the ability to make a shadow clone with 50% of the original's power. Like, what? Oh and he can switch place with his clone, which means he will never be in real danger. 12. Did I mention this ridiculous character surnamed Zhao? <<less

I cant belive there is so many people that read more than 1000 chapters of this novel its such a mess with so many better ones of this type.

What is the worst part is the so call Godness Snow that looks like its the main herione this character pretty much ruin the novel for me if you can pass her then this is novel becames a little better.

Now my problem with her is how the MC keep bringing her into the plot when she could be a disaster for him,... more>> because she is a horrible player that is super rich and arogant that destroy anyone that don`t play ball with her and our MC for no reason at all keeps her very close to him.

We all know how this novels work so it makes no sense this force romance. When I read this novels I want a good game, good loots, a team of likeble characters and the MC going to zero to hero but here we have a broken game that can criple your acc with absurd gears, weapons and quests that can criple your acc like 50% less stats if fail quest, a terrible cast of players that call each other noob just because they are 1 level above you and a foolish MC revealing his impossible to know knowlege to a extreme arrogant woman that can give him not only a game over but maybe even some jail time for knowling so much. <<less

The story was nice in the beginning, but it just get bad the further you read.

Firstly, the MC gets way OP as the story goes by. It's was OK if it was PVP, but against monsters tooo?

For example, he introduced a monster that in the past life needed over thousands of people with levels way over him to kill. And he managed to kill the monsters at low levels with a team fewer than a thousand. How can lvl a team of level 40s and 50s kill a mob when thousands of lvl 100s are needed.

And this cycle alway repeats, he found something good, guild wars ensues, he uses his hidden card and win. He goes farming, meet insane monsters, get something good, guild wars ensue, he use another hidden card newly found.

And his drop is insane, alway getting whatever he needs at the right time.

The story just get repetitive and ridiculous as it progresses.

Spoiler

and the crafting, at first it was you can only use one blueprint per person, as the story progresses, one blueprint can be learnt by multiple people

And the underground fighting, it's like the author just chuck it aside, then decide to bring it back as and when he likes it.

It's okay, just a little slow and the real life part gets less and less as the novel goes on which is a bit disappointing for me. As one can see the MC is pretty overpowered, but is luckily not invincible. Even with 1800 chapters the role of the female interest is still open, because somehow all of the girls have a good impression on him but nothing further. If you are interested in VR Novels I can highly recommend this one to you as it has a really realistic and unique setting, the only fault I have with this novel is, that the author is a bit forgetful and sometimes implements things that he will later neglect.

(I recommend it if you are bored :3)

It's a typical Gary Stu story where the protagonist not only has all the knowledge of a time looper, but also all the luck of a CN protagonist, and plot armor thicker than Mt. Tai. It's best if you go in expecting him to be unreasonably awesome at everything, and for him to receive rewards that are far greater than the amount of effort he put in to get them.

In general, things will always go the MC's way, and if it looks like they're not for one or two sentences,... more>> then you should just read the third sentence because things will be going his way again by then if it's not the end of the chapter. If it is the end, then you should probably skip the first third of the next chapter as it'll be irrelevant people explaining why the MC is screwed. Once they're done, he'll roflstomp whatever the problem is, humiliate anyone in the area that was mildly unfriendly to him in the past, gain an unrealistic degree of admiration from any named character in the vicinity and the shock and adulation of the crowd before the story, if you can call it that, can move on.

It's not as bad as Rebirth of the Thief or Zhang Long, but that's honestly a very low bar. Read it if you've got nothing better to do, you've read all the much better novels out there with a similar premise, and you're absolutely desperate for more, regardless of quality. <<less

Lots of poor reviews for this series, you'll notice they haven't read much of it. There's a reason for that, the story starts slower and quickly picks up.

The MC is reincarnated to just before the game God's Domain is released, after being betrayed and losing everything. He has tons of prior knowledge to back him up, and 10 years of experience playing the game. He's super strong, but I don't think OP is the right way to describe it.

The MC isn't 'Over Powered', how on earth could you have 10... more>> years of experience playing a game, be the leader of a huge guild, and dedicate your life to learning the game and all it's secrets inside and out and not be strong? The MC is strong because of his hard work, insane effort, and countless failures. The MC gets tons of great and rare drops, but the author very clearly explains it all. The MC does hidden and unique quests, things he knows about from his 10 years of experience, and gets the crazy rewards from them. The MC kills monsters much stronger than himself, and gets the first kill, which nets him great gear. Every advantage the MC has stems from his hard work, effort, and the countless hours he spent researching the game in his past life. Nothing he gets is unearned or random.

I promise you, if you keep reading, all the points any negative review I've read have brought up will be resolved. You don't like how quiet and reserved he is at the beginning? Keep reading, that changes in a mighty way. I cannot stress enough how awesome the series is, and how much I recommend it. Keep in mind, though, that in the beginning the MC hasn't done much, and he comes from 10 years in the future, so he knows a LOT and appears super powerful, things don't always go as planned though. As the story goes on, things get further from what the MC remembers, so no need to worry about it being boring.

TLDR; I can't recommend the story enough, just keep reading if you run into things you don't like they'll clear themselves up quickly. The author has a clear and well thought out road for the story and because of that everything fits together like an intricate puzzle. The only problem I have with the series is how many hours of sleep I've lost because I couldn't stop reading! <<less

Dude, I have a lot of problems with this author.

One of the things:

... more>>
Spoiler

At the beginning of the novel, the author always said that MC feels guilty for just giving work to his parents, and never taking care of them right.

I read 1400 chapters, and MC did not even visit them. He's rich, and he never sent money to them. The reason? he was afraid his parents would be worried and ask where the money came from.

[collapse]

Another thing:

Spoiler

Honestly, I do not understand the author.

The MC gains an item so he can ignore 10 levels of 1 item. If it is at level 40, you can use level 50 items. But it continues using level 40 item, I do not understand why.

[collapse]

Another thing:

Spoiler

The author has a tendency to delay things.

He got a chest that can give you 50 ~ 150 points of mastery, that could help him damn well. It has gone through several chapters, and the author has never used it, I do not understand why...

To get an idea, the MC got a box that comes with legendary items, and it takes time to open it. The author took more than 100 chapters to open this.

[collapse]

About the levels:

Spoiler

I read up to chapter 1400, and MC level was nearing 60. Before he reincarnated, it was 200, and it has been said, 200 is only the limit of a mortal.

If in 1400 chapters he is close to level 60, how long will it take for him to reach level 200?

[collapse]

One thing that made me angry.

Spoiler

MC makes a fantastic use of rebirth, managed to get many op items, did the quests superbly, and among many other things. And then you think: wow, MC is very op!

Then the author starts introducing new character, and says that he is strong. So you think "Idai that he is strong? MC used the advantage of rebirth, must be much stronger than everyone who is there kkk."

No, this is not how it works. MC used the advantage of the rebirth, managed to get many op items that leaves him well above the other players, and even so, when going to fight in PVP, always fight on equal terms with the other guy. He always has to use his trump or have to make a difficult fight to win.

Oh really? with the amount of op item he has, I expected him to beat his enemies easily, and no problem, but no... when the author starts introducing a new strong character, and he starts to fight the MC, it's a sacrifice pro MC to win. In most fights he always has to use everything to win.

If you've gotten a lot of op items that defy the sky, and yet you can not easily win from your opponents, what's the point of being reborn then?

It was good at first, but I can not read any more. <<less

The start was decent but it went all over the place after a few hundred chapters.

The story became a cycle of clichés, after he founded a guild, everything his guild gain threatens the interests of the bigger guilds or rich entities, then they will have a war or contest, the people would comment that his guild will lose, his guild will win the fight with him facerolling his opponents, then everyone would praise him and there will be sudden influx of people trying to join his guild.

Then a new big... more>> guild or rich financial group would appear and the cycle continues. The funny thing is every time his guild competes with other guilds, people would always comment about not having confidence in his guild winning the fight.

Spoiler

This cycle happened numerous times already and I don't think I can continue reading this, knowing that it will still happen a thousand times more. After all I'm already chapter 811 and he's still level 39, only having finished his first class advancement. Imagine how many times this cycle would continue until he reaches 4rd class/order advancement like in his past life or the last 6th class/order advancement which is godhood.

His assets are also mostly only inside the game (and his in-game currency making power is high compared to top guilds), the only investment he made in reality was a studio that they already vacated and several game capsules, though he used quite a lot of expensive real life strengthening medicines already.

[collapse]

If you like an endless cycle of slow-paced cliché that it's almost impossible to see the end, then this novel is for you. 811 chapters and the game is still at its early stages. <<less

So far, so good.

It's a far more enjoyable story which is comparable to stories like Zhan Long in that it is focused more on the game rather than the recurring motive of revenge of stories like Emporer of Solo Play. This story is far more focused on the action and light-hearted drama that ensues due to the OPness of the MC. And for that, each chapter leaves you smiling.

It's a good read for what it says it's supposed to be.

With only 20 chapters released it is always hard to gauge the quality of the writing, the plot and characters. While it is blatantly obvious that the story has taken parts from Sword Art Online along with the image which I think is stupid but on an overall it is pretty similar to most other VRMMORPG story's around with the usual Chinese influence. However this doesn't mean that the story itself is bad, the author has at least made an attempt to put a newer perspective on certain ideas. Those... more>> familiar with SAO's second season where Kiritio earned like 300000 gold from the untouchable game, a similar scenario is in this but rather it's the gnomes game and it's cash reward is far smaller along with a skill book for the MC for the first clear. The major Characters are actually quite well developed and you can grasp their temperments from the way the novel is written, the only thing I think is silly is the misuse of the reincarnation term. Reincarnation implies life after death, in the novel the MC doesn't die but just goes to bed drunk and wakes up young. That for me was the only real negative as it is simply a lazy and poor plot device to start the story that a lot of reincarnation stories use and even then I don't really think this is a reincarnation story. Just think of it as more the MC know the special locations where he can get a headstart than the other players. But on an overall I have really enjoyed it and all those negative ratings are from people who hate the fact that it has used some ideas from SAO.

thats all from me so peace out. <<less

I've read 95%+ of the raws so I think I have pretty good idea of what this novel is like.

Pros:

World building: The in game world is way more extensive, balanced, and engaging than any other. This and the huge guild conflicts are the only reason and good enough of the reason to read this.

Game Mechanics: Players would never be able to completely experience everything even if given a lifetime, because anything you want in real life exists in game. They can fight and grind, taking 10 years to get to... more>> the top tier of level 200 or 250, smith armor, cook delicacies, maintain a business, etc. There's an actual dark camp of players that are ruthless player killers and cause all sorts of trouble. There is a main story and world events that are triggered only when players do a specific action or enter a certain area.

Balance: Currency seems more balanced than other game novels. Even though the protagonist seems to be nearly always richer and has a higher income than those top tier enemy guilds that are always purchasing gold, he is always running into budget problems, never able to fund every single project he can build. Enemy guilds are not going to be 10 levels on average lower than the protagonist's guild even though he holds all the knowledge of best leveling spots and strategies. The OP weapon the protagonist holds has repercussions, anything good will have a high cost. Also, rare things are actually rare. The protagonist might have the guild either be forced to obtain first clears or actually lead hundreds/thousands of people to grind an area a whole day for few drops. Hidden classes are actually rare as heck and broken but since all fights are guild fights, they are beatable.

Cons:

Characters have absolutely no personality. Enemies are 100% vicious and selfish, subordinates are 100% obedient and hardworking. No in-between at all. They even say the same things. If not for the different tasks players were given previously, names could be switched around and we wouldn't notice.

Writing is repetitive. Before a fight, everyone thinks the enemy is better even after 100% win rate against several guilds supposedly dozens of times stronger and richer. Every single time some new tide-changing equip/weapon/item is revealed during guild fights, someone comments "So that's xxx's true ace/power" + "haha, they revealed all their cards now, we can deal with them now" even though the protagonist keeps showing new stuff like every two minutes.

Neutral:

Slow paced book. The game leading to the protagonist's pre-reincarnation level took 10 years. Even though the new timeline has game events updating several times earlier, the book probably won't end without like 6-8k or even more chapters...

No/ slow romance. All except one of the vice-guild leaders are all beautiful girls, but no romance in sight. I suspect that there might be something going on with the protagonist's classmate though. <<less

The author is confusing xianxia with game novels, the stupidity is high, the MC is considered noob all the time, it’s basically a xianxia novel with game elements, author changes data however he pleases, no logic behind it.

It might be below standard for Chinese novels, but knowing the standard of Chinese novels, it should be pretty bad !

I really wanted to continue this story but I had to drop it when he was fighting this assassin he was deep in this territory which he had to buy a special item to hide his life force and they even explained that assassins ability couldn't hide from the monsters so how in the hell did this guy know to prepare and use a item like that in this I presume high level territory because the MC had to pass level 15 areas to get there that no one else should have been to yet and somehow still slip away from the MC without dying that's some BS when this guy was introduced he was in a bar chilling having fun how could he be able to reach a high enough level to even be a threat when he was so relaxed taking kill orders personally instead of having someone else do it, also the MC experience of ten years means nothing to a guy playing this "revolutionary game" for the first time...

Sorry had to get that out I was just so mad that I couldn't not say something.

(Also I may have missed a lot of things I kinda have bad eyesight and a.d.d bad combo trying to read)

A very cliche second chance work. Light read, nothing serious

There happened to be many things I hate in this work that are commonly found in most works, so just a short rant.

He have the convenience of forgetting about his bloody parents after brief mentions of them in the early chapters, even though they are supposed to be his motivation and scenes about him in RL is non-existence in latest chapters.

Plus side, MC is overpowered but not omnipotent, much. Actions everywhere so much so that you can forget about some as they pile up then have some pop right back in your face after a couple of chapters.
Also, as quoted by the MC himself, he has the ability to cause betrayal happening in the guilds/parties he is working with, lots of bs later, MC saves the f-king day.

Bonus:

THE f**k IS WITH SO MANY GIRLS IN MC'S GUILD, THE RATIO OF MALE TO FEMALE IS 1:3, AND MOST IS WITH MC IN MOST SCENES. NOT A HAREM, YET

Lets be honest, GIRL is Guy In Real Life.

I don't get this novel. Here is a reincarnated guy with sh*tton of info about the game which allows him to get the fancy stuff before anyone else. He states that he was not a "pearless existence" but his knowledge should put him waaaay ahead of any of those geniuses. At least early game where everybody is learning how the game works. Instead he struggles with some two it assassin who sits all day in the tavern. I get that the guy is trained in real life which makes him... more>> an 'expert', but this is a game. Real world skill shouldn't be able to overwrite or owerpower in-game skill\techniques.

That's my my main point against this novel. Everyone and their mother knows these real-life skills and can use them in the game, which basically ruins the game. The games point is that everyone starts from zero and has a chance of becoming strong and awesome. I would accept that for example your neural responses are above normal numbers and that makes you more op in the game, but your martial arts skill shouldn't trump whatever you can use in the game.

Plus all the stuff the author changes or leaves out. Annoying. <<less

To be honest this novel just doesn't make any sense. Why:

Spoiler
  • Guy comes from future. However, he is SURPRISED when he finds out an enemy guild that has 1, 000, 000 people are surrounding him from everywhere vs his 3, 000. He should have known this fact from the start.
  • The main protagonist doesn't know what the hell his doing. Their are 1.6 billion players playing this game and his guild is only made out of 3, 000 players
  • He literally got recognized as first human guild in the entire game and got a ridiculous amount of guild points (30, 000; which would have taken other guilds years to get the same) and free guild hall. If he wanted to he could have recruited literately every single player in the game because he has SUCH A BIG ADVANTAGE (Advantage: lots of extra quest NPC gives to guild because of recognition points. Therefore, huge incentive for players to want to get the quest rewards which NO WHERE ELSE OFFERS). However, he said he wanted loyalty over numbers and created sh*tty guild with sh*tty players that can't even compete with 1% the number of his enemy. He DISREGARDS ALL ADVANTAGES which is why this novel is sh*t.
  • Like come on. He has 10 yr advantage over everyone and can't even snowball out of control like crazy. Are you kidding me? With all the advantages he has he should be number 1 in 1.6 billion. However, he is more like 100, 000 out of 1.6 billion. Why? Because his retarded
[collapse]

Protagonist is retarded and 2, 5000 ongoing chapters makes this unappealing. THINK ABOUT IT: for 2500 CHAPTRS YOU WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH RETARDED PROTAGONIST. JUST SKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIPSKIP

First I am not a gamer, never played any rpg games. So I review the novel without looking deep into technicalities. I will say some of the cons I feel as I am reading it. After 2000s of chapter, we dont know anything about mc's family or any side chair's at all. Except for his class leader.

MC doesn't have a strong motive. He did not even try to get revenge on the shadow guild

Timeliness, plots and quests are all a bit confusing. There are lot of stuff going on at same time that we can't keep track of everything

After 2000s of chapter, one would expect lot of changes and growth but only guild and studio develops and MC and his team grows stronger. Apart from that nothing much differed. Not even a year passed so far. MC hasn't yet graduated from the college I believe.

Till now guild depends on mc's miracles too much every time the guild gets into trouble and others underestimate or looked down on the guild despite its many achievements.

These are the things I can think of as cons. Still I am not really bothered by them actually. B coz I dont feel bored reading them at all. So far maybe 1or 2 years worth of MC memory has been shown, so there are lot to come. So we can still hope that author will explore MC family and all.

I am also bothered by harem tag. So far there is no sign of romance going on between MC and the girls around him. Most they expressed is admiration for him. Only class leader and flame dance showed some interest in a romantic way though not much.

MC is op but there are always stronger people above him.

Even his luck was reasoned with logic.

The story does not dwell much on emotional aspect but it is interesting enough for me I should give 4 star only but the rating of novel is low so 5 stars

[collapse]

After 2000 chapters the lacking of emotions except the interest toward the game started showing glaringly for me bcoz of the repetitiveness ie MC guild being underestimated continuously even after performing miracles again and again. So right now I can't help but see every character in the story are npc programmed with a task so I am reducing 2 points for low eq and for the lack of adventure in the game only to be refilled with repeated plots

A lot more VRMMO novels have been popping up, many of them interesting or at least with an understandable draw. The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor for example is a really fun one that seems to focus on a really entertaining MC, Shura's Wrath is fun because it revolves around a crazy backstory and one of the most overpowered individuals ever, Rebirth of the Thief Who Roamed The World is a great second chance novel built around leading and managing a guild. Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God however isn't like any... more>> of those novels in the worse way possible. While not being painful to read it doesn't contribute anything special. I would never advise someone to read this novel unless they had already read everything else and just wanted something to fill in the time.

Summary: The MC is one of the leaders of a major guild in the VRMMO, a professional player who makes a lot of money. He is kicked out of the guild (even though he is paid a huge amount of money) and told to delete his character. Unlike other second chance novels the MC doesn't die but is still sent back in time to right as the VRMMO is beginning. Using his "knowledge" of the future to get an advantage he begins playing the game in order to build his own guild for

. Some reason.

Pros:

    • Detailed Combat: Some of the combat seems are really intensely described
    • OP MC: The MC does the standard walking over everyone thing, if you want someone on a power trip then this is your guy.
Cons:

    • Lackluster MC: 230 chapters in and I have yet to actually have anything about the MC I care about. There is little background given to him and no actual motivation, not even the seemingly obvious revenge goal.
    • Boring Side Characters: Everyone other than the MC is a monolithic individual who you don't care about at all. Some names are tossed out and then you get told one or two details after which you don't care about them or even feel like they are worth remembering.
    • Pacing/Plot: The Plot doesn't seem to really be going anywhere and as such everything seems to take forever. When combat is actually happening the novel feels too slow to give any real sense of danger or urgency and outside of combat the novel is too slow to feel like anything is happening.
    • Power Scale: Nothing about how the MC is so strong makes sense. He doesn't have any readily obvious cheats that would make him OP and yet he can apparently single handedly take someone who should be stronger than him or at least close to being able to match him. The novel tries to give reasons why he is so powerful but they aren't impressive or convincing at all.
Summary: Overall a lackluster read. <<less
