Ultimate Scheming System


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

I am the best when it comes to taking divergent paths. With just a flip of my hand, I shall take the path less commonly travelled. I search far and wide, only to find myself unbeatable and unrivaled. So now I ask, who else can match my awesomeness?

Acting tough is second nature to me and I am a lone wolf.

The road is long and winding but I shan’t feel lonely as long as I am able to act tough!

Life and death bore me and I do whatever I deem fit.

“Young man, way back when I started acting tough, you were still learning how to put on your underpants!” Xu Que thus decided to take the path of acting tough. He decided to act tough every single god-damned day. If he wasn’t acting tough, he was scheming for the best way to act tough!

Nice. It's so rare to find a Chinese WN power fantasy, as opposed to all those power fant-oh look, that guy is 5 levels higher despite being younger than the super talented MC. Will the MC be able to level up in three weeks?

Anyway, I've enjoyed reading this. Cool.

Yeah just wanted to clear up accusations of rape in the reviews.

... more>>

The princess tries to poison and then kill the MC (for the second time) so he won't be a threat to her family even though they're the reason for the whole beef. In the end, the poison is swapped and the effect it has on women is different from men. It makes women horny (I know corny) in the end she'll die if she doesn't have s*x and her servant begs the MC to save her (I know contrived). Still given the scenario and circumstance it's not rape.


Anyway, if you read the story you'll know... or don't not that it matters to me I just wanted to clear that up. <<less

Very funny. This novel is Emperor's Domination without the endless foreplay before the MC finally makes his move. Since the MC gains strength by acting tough, he does it every time even when he is actually weaker.

... more>>

He will curse at the Heavens and even at Gods (who actually exist and have their own will) although his cultivation base is as low as Golden Core Stage or Nascent Soul Stage. This actually makes his Heavenly Tribulation difficulty increase.


The current translations are not bad but the realms' names are really weird. It seems that the translators never read any big xianxia novel with terms like Nascent Soul or Core Formation. They actually chose Core Bearing and Original Infant Stage... I can get used to Core Bearing but Original Infant is hard to swallow.

Anyway, give this novel try, you might like it. <<less

It seems so far to be a rather generic novel about a main character getting a cheat that quickly makes him incredibly op then slapping faces. I was coming in expecting a novel akin to Strongest System, but somehow got a rather worse copy of it. Maybe it will get better. Probably not.

Really funny and also really satisfying. If you like wish fulfilment then this is great... it's nice to see someone with a cheat that actually feals like a huge cheat. Some authors are terrible at handling cheats and the story gets boring fast, but not here. Unless you're burnt out on "normal" xuanhuans then I'd definitely recommend this.

I originally rated this 5 since I liked the beginning but following that it starts to deteriorate maybe around ... more>>

when MC met and raped (I consider it rape no matter what anyone tells me as I think it is pretty forced and maybe the author just wants a justifiable reason for it not to be called rape) the Fire Princess


I'm a bit biased on the review as I really don't have much affinity with shameless protagonist. At the beginning I didn't mind and kinda looked forward to it but later on he is just plain evil. I could understand that some of the sects deserved being robbed or annihilated by the MC but doing so to sects unrelated to MC it starts to be annoying especially when acting tough just for the sake of acting tough. He is pretty much disregarding everyone else's life and he's treating everyone like NPC that he can just kill. Sure some may say it's because of what happened with the first village that the MC don't like cultivators but so what? Not every cultivators are the same like not all ordinary people are good.

I don't mind MC being ruthless, perverted or shameless but there needs to be a line that one mustn't cross and for me the MC just crossed it. So this novel is pretty much dropped. <<less

I am not really comfortable with writing a review after only 34 chapters, but I felt the need to counter-balance a little.

The premise is as follows: the protagonist is a reincarnator taking over the body of a discarded prince consort after the his wife absorbed his cultivation. He gets a system that rapidly raises his power level, and its main currency is "acting tough" points. He gains those by acting boisterous in front of others or by displaying domineering abilities. In other words, it is a system that rewards him... more>> for playing the role of your typical sociopathic xianxia MC. Emphasis on the "acting" part, as while he is unscrupulous, he is nowhere as bad as some of the natural examples.

Aside of the system, there isn't much else that makes this work stick out of the competition, but contrary of the other reviews here, I don't think it's particularly bad. Nor is it a comedic series, as by ch 34 the protagonist is on a completely serious roaring rampage of revenge, he has a goal for which he has to raise his cultivation ASAP, and in general he is becoming a more relatable character contrasting the indifferent haughtiness of the local cultivators.

That said, there are also a lot of issues on the writing front, such as the annoying trope of these systems handing out the techniques of MCs of other works, which this story takes to its extreme by having the people protagonist learn Xiao Yan's entire early skillset, complete with his sword and clothes.

That said, it is still early to judge this WN, but personally I will stick to it for a while, as I see a lot of potential in it.

Edit: After reading a couple more chapters, I have to make a slight correction: I was wrong when I said this was not a comedic series. I was so, so wrong. Once the first big *wham* episode that leads to the alluded roaring rampage of revenge, the story mellowed out a bit and it became one of the most hilarious things I have ever read. It's practically the best parts of the comedy of Library of Heaven's Path and History's Number One Founder rolled together with the some of the over-the-top destructive face-slapping seen in Emperor's Domination sprinkled on top. I really, really hope the rest of the WN is going to keep up this quality, as it might actually become my new favorite. <<less

A transmigrated soul gets an system, which works on 'how tough you act.' That includes shameless boasting, even more shameless acting and arrogant MC with a dirty mouth.

As if chapter 18 it is your run of the mill system novel but with extreme power boosts. It's not even 18 chapters and he has gone from a waste to core (jindan) cultivator.

The system is also offering MC the usual Amazon of cultivation world. He can purchase any technique, skills, spells, items, weapons etc with Tough Points.

Oh and he is killing core... more>> Cultivators at the Foundation Stage 1 and probably Infant Soul at Core Cultivator stage 1.

And finally, the story doesn't seems to take itself seriously and neither should we. Its purpose is pure slapstick stupid comedy. So it's a fun and light read.

The MC is a Prince consort whose cultivation was sucked by his wife is the princess. A sane person would at least get angry or plan revenge, but our MC is regretting that he wasn't born earlier. Why? So he could try s*x techniques with the princess.

So it's either you will like it or hate it.

    1. That's it, until further edits.
P.S Seeing how the chapters are and the way story is going, I am having serious doubts how it can stretch itself to cover 950+ chapters. The author is probably going to introduce huge amounts of fillers soon.

It's chapter 25 and he is already halfway to nascent soul. <<less

tl;dr: It may not be the best but it is one of the funniest novels that I have read. I would recommend it for you guys to pick up and read through

Plot 3/5 - Typical xianxia / wuxia genre but MC's cheat is super OP. Plot revolves around Acting tough, Slapping faces, and being a jerk (with morals). In case you haven't gotten it yet, its just Comedy with some sides of fighting and a little hint of romance. I guess its just pretty generic? The Comedy part though... more>> will make you laugh.

Characters 3/5 - MC is... uh generic MC in these genres. I can't really think of something unique about him. Side characters are, lets be real, just there to boost MC's standing.

Fighting scenes 3/5 - Predictable to some extent but there are parts that are amusing

Personal Enjoyment 5/5 - It made me laugh a lot. <<less

If you enjoy system/game element novels you will surely enjoy this one. Although it does follow the basic "Shop" idea and has a faster path of "cultivating" unlike in most of these novels. The system isn't just a system. It actually interacts with the MC and adds to the story. It's fun to read, the story just follows Xu Que acting tough.

It's not supposed to be a serious novel - if you can't tell from the synopsis (I couldn't). Just take everything the MC does as what he - not the author - does and you'll like it.

Just give it a try and see if you like it or not, but I would reccomend this over other ones that isn't very highly rated (i.e. Ones below ~4.5 stars).
