I read a fair bit into the novel, because I felt the beginning had promise. But it's really gone downhill in characterization and plot, and the MC seems to carry an inherent player's "it's just a game" mentality to justify anything and everything.

He doesn't bother to tell his subordinates anything, only training and directing them so they'll be useful to him.

... more>>
Spoiler

Except for holograms of his past player comrades which are the only ones he trusts. The natives? Too s*upid to bother explaining anything to, and only there to be exploited

[collapse]

He is according to the author, repeatedly described "as pretty as a girl" but doesn't bother using his apparently stunning looks for anything even the slightest bit similar to any type of romantic relationship, instead taking the opportunity to sleep with whoever whenever.

Spoiler

He has s*x with multiple female subordinates, again without letting them know beforehand that he'll be sleeping with multiple members nor caring about the implications or drama, only thinking with his d***.

Also, pity the people he captures, because he thinks nothing about r*pe. He'll throw a male captive in a cell to be raped by male prisoners, and deal with some of the female captives himself - complete with ens*avement, sexual abuse, and r*pe with tentacle play among other things.

[collapse]

The story and character's become absolutely disgusting, and like one other reviewer mentioned, someone's version of a wet dream, and not even a decently written one at that. Stay far away. <<less

It's a nice novel in the beginning, kinda similar to The Amber Sword and Advent of an Archmage, with decent worldbuilding and kingdom-building chronicles, but all of this quickly goes to sh*t when parallel world plots and time-travel is introduced.
Actual rating 1/5, but am eating rice, so 3/5

Now, time travel and parallel worlds are interesting devices if used well, except that the author has no idea what he's doing and handwaves it all away, leading to plotholes, buttholes and other holes. I'm serious. All the novel focuses on is... more>> sex. The MC recreates his childhood friends, former guildmates etc as spirits/sexbots and proceeds to f*ck the living daylights outta them! It's frankly disturbing.

To add insult to injury,
Spoiler

his sister reveals herself as the supposed villainous dragon but with a disturbing brother complex and incestous s*x ensues. This isn't even the main plotline

[collapse]

You've poorly executed orgies, the MC has the stamina of an ox on viagra, the novel is gradually forgotten, there's in-novel cosplay and the s*x isn't even satisfying. IDK why I even read this novel, but my braincells commited mass suicide. I can't even English properly now. Please stay away. <<less

Ugh I want to like it but I can't. The reason I can't like it is because of the way the author always over glorifyling the MC. The author make it seems like the MC knows everything and best at everything because he's a high-level online game player and a guild master. The author also make every other character beside the MC useless just to glorify how awesome our MC is.

after binge reading for 15+ days I have to admit, the ending is open, but it is for the best. I don't like it, but it is for the best. As usual, with the snowflake of characters, it is impossible to write down everyone's end. The author is humorous and enjoys putting puns, parodies, sarcasms and jokes to which I like them. I read out of curiosity and stayed for the s*x scenes, the open ones are nicely done, no P and V words though. Though of course as usual... more>> the character development for most are done in a rush, those that are nicely done flow nicely and no abrupt stuff.

The fight scenes are initially welldone, but coming to the end feels sloppy. The interactions with MC and his harems are work, sex, understand, sex, though half of the said harem did not go through the baptism that is sex. <<less

My review is biased because I have read too many novels from the same genre

So far just a generic transmigrated to game world cliched shite. Translations done at Qidian is praiseworthy but the novel in my opinion is a waste of time if you have already read any transmigration or vr novels. Harem makes it worse I'm sure of it as harem rarely goes well anyways.

... more>> If you are a new reader to this genre I highly reccomend you to read this.

The plot armor of the main character is way tooo much!

Spoiler

So Here we have a dude who gets transmigrated to the game he is playing after getting defeated by a dragon... The dude falls outta the sky and a passing by flying ship just takes him in and treats his wounds.... no questions no suspicions just heal the dude who falls outta the sky without any benefits or anything. Then we see the MC is not the dude in the game as he is now the real life version (weak, pale, skinny...) or so it says cos, they get attacked by some flying dudes and this dude just defeats them easily... wow op af I guess... the dude is cool headed which I liked in the beginning but no then he becomes a emotional traditional horny dude later on. Anyways its just another cliched harem incest fking in the broad daylight novel.

Promising story, yet fact that author sometimes *forget* his own setting/rules destroy it all.

Let's look at simple but crucial in "game" genre EXP. MC is only player in party, so he should get full share of exp (as NPC's take 0%), yet after literally days of grinding mobs his lvl remain the same.

Then again, protagonist winning 1v1 against 40lvl, while himself being at 10, explain everything.

The fillers are goddamn unbearable. Every. Single. F*cking. Chapter. Author took 2 long-ass passages to describe the creation of the world which NO ONE CARES! Even the MC didn't even care!

"But these things meant nothing to Rhode."

Just stick these infos up your ass then.

... more>> MC is also an edgy morron that likes to act cool.

"Ugh, my sister died so I spent 7 years playing games JUST TO DULL THE PAIN, then my parents also died in a plane accident by CRASHING INTO A f*ckING TORNADO."

Like, holy shit! How edgy and illogical can this novel be?!

Also, here's the funny part, MC picked an "underrated" and "hard-to-master" class and somehow managed to become a gaming god with his room-temperature IQ. Author almost came as pathetic in trying to down-play the class by how much "technical skills" the players need to have and how steep the learning curve is supposed to be. I'd eat my own sh*t if this MC could make it far irl.

The harem is a f*cking joke. Author's entire concept of relationship is based on tropes, soap operas and shoujo mangas. I could almost smell his fat virgin neckbeard odours from across the screen. He's like one the creep f*cks that browse Pixiv for f*cked up #R_18 #ロリ shits. <<less

The process leading to this review:-

    1. Stumbled upon this page.
    1. Saw the 'incest', 'rape' and 'polygamy' tag.
    1. I say 'Oh boy, this would be fun' and starts reading this novel.
    1. ???
    1. Started to write this review.
I have read until the latest free chapter, and I can safely say that you shouldn't expect a Chu Feng in this novel. MC isn't exactly an 'Everything according to keikaku' character either, with him relying more on his knowledge of the future instead of his supposedly abilities as the no. 1 player of the MMO game he has been transported into.

But what makes me go

is the fact that there is no sign at all that the tags I mentioned above are true. There is no sign that MC is going to have an incestual relationship, and it seems that MC is more in danger of being raped then being the rapist himself. Only the polygamy thingy seems to be close to the mark, but some of the characters here doesn't subscribe to 'Sharing is Caring' mentality...

Is this worth buying SS? Definitely a NO!

Garbage. I thought the concept may be interesting but author completely butchered it. MC is supposed to be the top player of the game but once he gets transported to the new world, he literally does shit. I have no idea why he doesn't grind levels to beat his enemies. Like a dumb idiot that just sits there ready to be butchered. Then somehow, thick plot armour gives him godlike abilities which are super unrealistic.

Horny mofo as well making every single companion of MC a female. All his spirit summons... more>> all take form of a woman. Shitty novel. Don't bother reading. <<less

Despite the insipid info dumps, the world is well built. However, the MC is just a moron who likes to act cool and thinks he is smart. He is not (maybe the author thinks he is as he gives lame ass interpretations for his actions). The author seems to have no EQ and the characters are thus extremely immature, which is what detracts from the otherwise decent story.

I would have been fine if the MC was a self-righteous youngster who is still working things out, but the problem is that... more>> the rest of the characters in the story all seem to think highly of his buffoonery, which makes me feel like I am reading the mind of a creative 13 year old.

Characters are unique but their relationship with the MC ruins everything. <<less

This is one of those don't give an eff, self satisfaction stories. Usually stories like this would protray the MC as an anti-hero but that would be wrong here. This story is about a villain as the MC who gets along with the good guys for the most part.

I enjoyed it for what it was but to be honest. The main char while being fun till this point has finally gotten on my nerves. To be fair my last straw was this was this chapter... more>>
Spoiler

His teammate gets taken over by a mind demon cause he decides its great idea to not tell his teammate I'm not bringing you along cause theirs a Mind Demon up ahead. He tells them to instead go get supplies for them and leaves them at the Inn. Few hours past they aren't back so they go look for them and now its the teammates fault for being worried about the main char. Just ugh.... They should suffer in their head for being taken over without even knowing the damn thing was in the forest when they looking for him.

Tl/dr Main char is a guy who can't do wrong and is never at fault even when at fault. <<less

Not too bad of a story, but I agree with a prior reviewer that the author made out everything to make the MC be the glorified genius and kills off anyone even remotely close to his level of skill or knowledge. So I can understand why some people won't like it.

That being said, the translators did a wonderful job, the story is well written and I found myself enjoying both the story and the combat sequences-to a degree. Not the best I've ever read, but certainly better than most.

An average story but the translation really brings it down. I'd take a guess that the translator isn't fully fluent in English as there's a lot of nuance lost and weirdly written sentences that makes it a worse read. You'll understand it just fine but it did pull me out of it a couple times. Other than that it's a typical transmigration story, if a bit on the poorer side. There's better stuff out there so unless there's nothing else to read I'd recommend passing on this one.

Great story I really like this novel. I've been reading web novels for a long time so its hard to find anything that can catch my attention any more. When you've read the dozen or more most popular fantasy web novels you'll be lucky to find a novel that has decent translation quality let alone complaining about filler. It has the perfect balance of just about everything. The right amount of world building battle and others with just the right amount of smut. The filler thins out after a 100... more>> or so chapters. The main character is apathetic and arrogant but he changes a little around chapter 700. But at least he isn't obsessed with hiding in the shadows to keep his strength a secret since the chines seem to be obsessed with that. Good read I recommend one of the few hidden gems. <<less

The worldwide construction, the characters and everything else are great, but with each part that the novel progresses, you realize that Rhode is an arrogant little shit, who ends up having everything very easily. The harem is even worse, but if you're new to reading this kind of easy romance, I recommend it.

Dropped, the info dumps were way too much.
Every. Damn. Chapter. Random lore explanations for everything, and for nothing. Basically half or less of each chapter is actually useful, the rest added way too detailed explanations that won't matter anyway. I felt like reading a game guide, not an actual story.
Also, MC seems to be cool headed, but isn't very bright, just super knowledgeable about the game and very OP thanks to the game system.

So. I decided to read the reviews after the quality of translation started going below primary school standards.

I never expected such low ratings and reviews to be honest. I mean I felt that this story was similar to Amber sword with the MC being a bit more proactive than Su Fei (or Brendel) from Amber sword. And Su Fei had a s*ave mentality and no ambition while Rhode didn't seem to be the kind to bow down to some princess.

But then I read the reviews.... Looks like the author lost... more>> his marbles after writing a few more chapters.... I thought it would've been a wonderful story, but from the looks of it, it's just another wanker's wet dream taking the form of a fiction...

I hate it when my expectations are ruined.

Still I'll read another 100 chapters are see for myself. Of course if it gets as unbearable as the reviews cautioned, I'd just quit. <<less

The MC was playing a game and then got transferred to the game world. The MC was one of the best players and he knows pretty much almost everything that is going to happen. So expect vast knowledge of people, places, and events that he will use to his advantage and get ahead of everyone
