Story is about a Rich arrogant MC that takes everything for granted, whales on a game, becomes ranked 1 player. He deletes the account that is worth a load of money, because he looked down on players that made money playing games and that its below him. Fast forward a few years, he finds out his family went bankrupt after he got back from military service. Being poor and having nothing, having no college education, he turns back to gaming.

He talked a lot of tr*sh about how proper humans should


get a good education and find a good real job, but here he is working as a cashier with no college education. I have no pity for this guy at all, he had it coming and needed a reality check. My gripe is how meddling the devs/gms are in this game and that he was able to beat a player much higher than him at level one. If it was a new game, sure id believe that, but for a game thats been out for years, are you telling me that these players still play like noobs and the MC is the only player that starts a new character? Not to mention the player accepted a duel that gives the winner everything they had and deletes their account, what a joke, who would accept such a bet vs a level 1, are you telling me hes the first ever smurf and that nobody has ever intentionally makes new accounts to mess around/scam players by betting winner takes all.

Not to mention, MC is the only smurf player in a game thats years old, with luck that rivals even the gods themselves. Gets op ring from tutorial, 1 of a kind pet from a low lvl dungeon, instantly liked by top vid editor because MC is one of the only players out of the millions or billions of players out there, knows top tier secret craft recipes, gets top tier rare skill books ect, the list goes on. This novel is unbelievable in so many levels.

That being said, the story is about how the MC starts over in order to support his family, on a game that is years old. Hit or miss, youre not missing out much whether u read this or not. There are a lot of gaps that isnt explained.

Edit: Decided to read 20 more chapters since there were so many positive reviews to give this another chance and nope, nothing has changed. The plot in this novel feels forced and unnatural. For example, an notorious guild would put up a rare weapon up for sale cheap just so they can buy it back later and starting fights with the MC because he bought his weapon, only to be wiped out or have their account deleted in another ridiculous bet. It seems to me this game literally revolves around the MC; uncontested. To readers looking for actual plot or character development, read something else. However, if you turn off your brain and loves reading OP MC mowing everything down and forced random plots, then have at it.

Inherently this novel is not bad, however with so many vrmo novels out there this one seems a little bit bland. First off he decides to make warrior as his first class change which wouldnt be such a bad thing if it werent for the fact that the summary is way to short, and boring ; it makes me think the author lacks imagination. What makes this worse is the fact that the MC levels up way to fast, the game system gives him ridiculous stats through unrealistic interference, and


him simply finding the items he needs like it no big deals make the novel reads like he simply going through the paces; which in in my opinion is not fun to read. Second off the dilemma of the author might be sad, however its hardly relatable to, and gives me very little reason to care about the MC struggles, and at the rate that this character is leveling up up, this shouldnt be a problem for long, and kind of makes the whole point of him having to level up from scratch kind of pointless.

Plot is predictable, characters are either stereotypes of some sort or their personality is summarized with a single sentence. The dialogue in particular feels very stiff, same for the interactions between the MC and other characters.

Ah, Rain? I know him a little bit personally. Last time, I saw him before he was miserably defeated by you. He asked for advice. We have such a friendship. Why are you asking about him? Mascherano replied.

The viewers on the MCs stream are probably the most natural in terms of dialogue.[collapse]

The worldview is basically casual gamers in a competitive game, except for the real pro MC. There is also a huge lack of tension, even though the author tries to make it seem like there will be some, but everything gets either pushed back indefinitely or just gets predictably resolved.

Oh my lord. This was so horrendous I dropped it in the second chapter. The main character is so hate-able its ridiculous. And, Im the type of reader who rarely hates the MC, no matter what they do. But this one... Its just atrocious.

Hes so... superficial. At the beginning (if I remember correctly) He went on some confusing rant about how he was so much better than these NEETs who play video games all day because hes joining the army. Then it was like oop, time skip now hes back home and not rich anymore.

And then hes all everyone hates me because Im f*cking poor I cant see anyone now because Im not rich. Also, how did he not know his family was losing money? Maybe something was mentioned about this and I just forgot, but I dont believe joining the army completely cuts you off from society.

But thats beside the point. After he realizes that people dont hate him cuz hes poor, hes like well now I need money to live, lets go back to that game. This would have been fine, and I probably would have kept reading, if it werent for that rant. It feels like he looked down on everyone who played the game when he decided to stop, but then acts like nothing ever happened and goes back.

I wouldnt have been bothered by an arrogant main character, if his arrogance held up. If he stayed c*cky even when he was dirt poor and then was like, f*ck it get me my game back, I mightve liked it more. But it felt like he totally collapsed like oh noooooo my money!. It was pathetic to read, honestly.

Yeah, it was probably a more realistic depiction of the crushed pride of a formerly rich child, but I dont want to read that kind of realism in a gaming novel! He felt so pathetic it personally insulted my pathetic soul.

But Id say the main reason I dropped it because I couldnt imagine anyone figuring out he was a previously a famous player satisfying in the slightest. How could he possibly explain how he left the game because he thought he was better than everyone, but then came back because hes poor, without lying by omission. And that was the deal breaker for me.

I read some reviews that the story itself was more satisfying, so if you make it longer than me, I hope you enjoy yourself. And, again, take this review with a grain of salt because I got sick of it before it got the chance to get better. And my memory is tr*sh.

The inside woman inside the game company is shifting the game to his favour by putting ridiculously hard challengers tailor made for him. Hes getting OP so fast hell catch up to the top rankers in 100 more chapters. I honestly have no idea wheres its going to go from there because he was already the best player in this game. Hell just keep collecting more levels and money? Bully some guilds and solo some bosses? Im definitely going


Should have been around 4.0/5. A bit early to give a review but I liked it so far. People disliked OPness of the character and the speed at which he grows. Im personally too bothered. The description pretty much tells you what to expect. Of course there are a lot of better VRMMORPG but so far it didnt have anything damnable.

Pros? There is enough internal consistency. Definitely a lot


of the enjoyable VRMMORPG moments. Characters arent complete morons. MC is quite likeable

I like it better than the other VRMMORPG where the MC has ESP, but not as much as the one with the old guy. while the writing has problems at some points, this story flows better than the first and the translation is very solid. I have a few issues with the MCs choices and motivation and question his intelligence in one or two situations as he bounces from being cool headed to hot tempered and back again with zero consistency.

I wish it would add more backstory and explain why the MC fighting power is so much better the others (according to his rw friend hes always been that way in other games as well). so did he do martial arts as a kid? or take lessons in a sword dojo? why is his basic technique and swordplay so much better than everyone else even at level 1? just claiming to be a game genius only goes so far and doesnt explain his abilities.

there have been a few questionable moments and sometimes the scene changes are a bit abrupt but overall its been a fun and easy read. a good novel to just sit back and enjoy (though Ill probably skip the first few chapters once Ive stacked enough chapters for another read through). right now my rating is steady at 3.5

While I do agree to the reviews of different readers here, we cant deny the fact that its quite enjoyable read, atleast in my opinion. Look, its already given that almost vrmmo themes always make the MC an op, so Im not surprised about the development here. One thing I just hate is the typical plot of revenge against his enemy (the son of the person who caused his familys bankcruptcy). Its so f*cking annoying that he has the tendency to fall for a simple provocation of his enemy. Everything


is tolerable so far except anything related to his enemy. It took 938 chapters for this series to end because of that. I personally dont like long novels like Overgeared that has so much useless chapters and plots, except if the plot is so good and if its done correctly. MC is relatively fast in leveling up his character which is tolerable but its still took 938 chapters.

Typical OP MC in a video game that will never realistically exist. I think its a good read if you turn your brain off. The manhwa remake is much better than the novel.

so if youre reading this after coming from the manhua, dont, they actually fixed a lot, at least in the remake version anyway. The original, which would also include this novel, is a very hit or miss story either you enjoy it and dont like to further dive deep in between the lines of the story or not, because you just dont read just for OP MC kicks.

I loved the novel when it had a goal, an aim. Something that was challenging and hard to achieve. By chapter 300 it felt like the end. Id have been happy and satisfied. Now its a dragged out boring piece of grinding. Theres just no aim, he is literally the number 1 with number 2 far far far away. Only NPCs can be considered a challenge and it just doesnt work.

Contrary to many of the other reviews, I think this a well done novel. The story and power leveling progresses nicely, although like others have mention, he pretty much is able to level up/get good gear, skills, items, and encounters due to interference and luck. However, to me, I dont really mind that since it is still enjoyable to read. If you dont like overly strong MC to the point where others cant touch them, perhaps dont read this.

One of the things I like about the MC is that he


is not a good person but he is also not a bad person. He has moments where he is able to be both, just like any other person can. Also Id like to say some of the most enjoyable interactions are between MC and the Emperor, they are just so funny.

was pretty abrupt, but I can still rationalize why it happened. I imagine theyll provide more details on it later and how exactly it went down but it does feel like just a convenient plot device at the moment.

That said, I still really enjoyed the chapters I have read. Ill try and update my review once more chapters are out. I do like the setting and for once its not a VR game thats totally controlled by a super-computer AI. Others can actually interfere with the game, for good or bad.
