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

Earth Online – a virtual MMORPG that takes place in the future year of 2190 – a game that everyone will bet their futures on. Set in a map that is ten times the size of real-world Earth, players battle for supremacy in the first game to feature personal adventure, territory construction, and grand warfare. For every death you experience in the game, your level would drop back to zero. Ouyang Shuo, an above average player, suffered the ultimate betrayal. For merely a piece of equipment, his sworn brother betrayed and backstabbed him. This time, after he reincarnated in the game, Ouyang Shuo swore to exact vengeance.

However, in an unexpected turn of events, Ouyang Shuo found himself back five years before the betrayal – right before the launch of Earth Online. This time, armed with the knowledge from his past life, Ouyang Shuo would venture upon a new path.

How to perfectly complete quests? What historical battle maps would appear? How should one build up their territory? Utilizing the experience from the predecessors of his last life, Ouyang Shuo makes his bid for the top against all odds. Follow his journey as he seeks to lord over the world!

A different kind of tale that blends historical characters and virtual reality gaming, with heavy emphasis on kingdom building and warfare.

Pretty bland I must say about this novel. Eventhough the translation is good, the story too plain without event that brings excitement to readers. The only good things are building kingdom concept that makes it different from other VR novels and MC character kind of more developed, though other characters just come and gone. Till ch 27 that I read all MC does is built things and relationship with NPC in his village. Even real character that he engage in conversation and are not NPC only his sister and one... more>> girl who is his housemate. <<less

Hated it. This novel is just the usual bare minimum self fulfillment we all know and that’s scattered on the site.

Literally, it’s the daily life of a lucky Clash of Clans player. Clash of clans is a building mobile game where you build town halls, units, weapons for your city, etc. For those who don’t know what it is.

Basic characters, villians, allies, bullsh*t luck, it’s just so easy for him. There’s no challenge or end goal.

If you wanna read a novel where the MC plays a terrible 1/5 game with... more>> flat characters that have no change, be my guest. <<less

The world will end in 10 years and the only way to get to go onto the only hospitable planet "Hope" is to play a virtual reality game.

Oh and it's corrupt from the get-go, giving advantages to the rich and powerful in the form of better starting hardware, equipment and knowledge.

6 chapters in and I can't believe it gets any better, MC is the best because plot and no one else matters because story needs to happen for the MC, Oh except the little sister, because of course you got... more>> to have that moe little sister to motivate the MC. <<less

Right now, I'll give it a 3. The problem, as always with future based chinese novels is their nationalism. The rest of the world is simplified and they start changing stories of ancient china as they fit. So if it gets worse, I will drop it and change my review to a 1, if it doesn't I'll problably rate the novel as a 4. We'll see.

In my opinion, the novel is mediocre, neither good nor bad. (chapter 184 where everything is supposed to be explained)

Description: Earth is supposed to explode (approximately 2200) and humanity have to travel to another livable planet (it will be called "hope"). Researchers and governments of world start a project (obviously top-secret) for the voyage and a VRMMO that will keep occupied the population. The game (setted in the ancient times with swords/bows ecc..) is launched half-year (2190, 1st month) before the departure (2190, 7th month) and is managed by... more>> Skynet (yes... it's the name of A.I. in this novel), in this game every person can decide to choose 2 way to live, lord-mode: here the player can establish a village and govern it (kingdom building) or if there aren't territory available, helping other lords into the managment of the village (future town/city/kingdom?!), obviously the plot of lands are limited even if the game is generated 10 times bigger than earth. Adventurer-mode: classic mode in every game, don't need explanation I suppose?! (nobody, expect some big-rich-family, knows about the importance of the game until some days before the departure, so who started playing from the start is advantaged) little spoiler:


some rich kids from big family (all over the world) bought a premium like account lord-mode to be advataged


You could say "oh cool, look interesting" and indeed it is, until the MC is mentionated. (spoiler below)

There are too many things to mention:

    1. MC a normal guy without parents (dead) and with a little sister to look after (both normal background), start the game with his sister on the day of departure from the Earth or some days before (because he, like almost everyone, dind't know anything about it), apparently both brother and sister choose the adventurer-mode and through the next 10 years they struggle to live decently. (If you die in game apparently you lose every level/item so it is a big deal) The story start with the dead of MC and his game friend that betrayed him for some drop item (not explained enough), the MC before dying curse him for revange, but here the twist of fate will took our MC back in the past, to before the launch of game (year 2189, 12th month) ;
    1. MC is back to the past and obviously without complain, like it is a normal thing, he start to plan his future knowing already what is going to happen (roughly it should be supposed) in the next 10years, he decide to sell his house and rent an appartament (remember everyone will have to leave the planet) so that he can buy the game/capsule ready for the launch on the day 1 (2190, 1st month) ;
    1. MC don't start anymore adventurer-mode, but lord one, obviously explained later that it is the end-game, where you manage your big cities and if lucky, to last until the end, your own kingdom/empire. (because yes... there will be wars for expand territories), instead the adventurers have to struggle a bit more to live;
    1. MC start even to cultivate, like in xianxia novels, in game and in real world, thanks to "true" cultivation methods that can be dropped or aquired in the game; (they are rare)
    1. MC, thanks to his past knowledge, exploit everything he can remember to expand and evolve his village, he not only is lucky, but appear to be very good to manage his territory.

(in the early chapters it is comprensible, but later on you will start to ask yourself if MC is a genius or not, he know everything, not a bit, but literally everything. He was adventurer and not lord in his previus life and he never studied territory managment or something similar in his school days, after 80-100chapeters you could assume he is a perfect politician/president/lord, whatever finances or military managment he know how deal about them way better than professionals, sometimes

it is hilarius because the npcs that help him in managment get scolded for not good reasons just to get replaced after a pair of chapters by a new entry that should be better)

Out of nowhere, sometimes, with a few explanation (the author try to sound reasonable thanks to the plot about him having the knowledge of 10years ahead of others) the MC hit jackpots with golds over golds, he became soon the 1st of world in advancement of his territory. (read the previously spoiler to comprend that he is way better than big families-companies that use real money to buy game currency).

The side-characters whatever villains or friends are useless until now (useless in story). There is no challange, it is way too easy, not because he came from the future, but because he know things that he isn't supposed to know with his character-background.

1 hilarious and bewildered moment is when one of his subordinates suggest a drastic change of managment of his daily managment-meetings, normally and from the start the approach is modern-like with everyone sitted on normal chairs and discussing, but guess what? from then on he agree to change to the way like in ancient times, with the lord in the center sitted and every subordinates standing rispective to their proper rank. (from then on you will notice that he start to be more like a lord from a xianxia novel than a modern person with more civilizated-modern mind).

Why is it became mediocre? imo the MC is the problem, his knowledge is the author knowledge, he know everything and everything became easy, too boring (after 10-20chapters he go from weak to 1st of the world instead from weak to strong or strong to stronger) and his friends are kiss-ass.

Stay tunned for more, maybe the author will enlighten us about why the mankind have to play a VRMMO setted in ancient times (for now the obvious guess would be to repopulate the new planet, but it dind't explain why starting from uncivilized era)

EDIT : Departure day explanation: "Gaia had already set up the website in the game so players could visit it or the forums at any time to look for news. This was also the reason why Ouyang Shuo (MC), who was an adventure player in the last life, understood so much about territory building." cit c184

So thanks to the author we know why he is so good, I mean in his past life he read and got such huge knowledge thanks to the news on the forum, more like a normal person that read news in daily life go back to 10years in the past to became the big-shot (1st of world) in half-year thanks to his past knowledge. (It is a game and maybe it is bit easier, but really to me it look exagerated)
