(6th April 2021) This review was relevant at 40ish chapters(all at the time). There's 120+ out now (but unfortunately no respectable wiki to help make sense of this kerfuffle) so if anyone wants to add an update on whether any flaws have been addressed or pros have been added, it would be appreciated. Basically is it worth sticking through a couple hundred chapters to get to the good stuff for our more patient friends? ;P

Alright. In utter seriousness I'm surprised this novel was chosen to be TL'ed. 𝗜𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝘇𝗲𝗿𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗵𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻, 𝗷𝘂𝗺𝗽𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗮𝗯𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗼𝗻𝗲𝗱 𝗽𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝘂𝗻𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗲𝗱 𝗽𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗲𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗹𝘆 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗰 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀, who even more frustratingly, are supposed to be smart. I guarantee any half decent editor would take one look at this and immediately classify it as a lost cause. A collaboration between major genres has incredible potential, but is doomed to be a mess unless everything is properly planned, fleshed out (looking at the characters here) and edited. The only good thing about this novel is that it reminded me of one of Wuxiaworld's other amazing longstanding novels [Gate of Revelation].

𝗡𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘀 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗻'𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆'𝗿𝗲 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆'𝗿𝗲 𝘀𝗼 𝗯𝗮𝗱 𝗻𝗼 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺. This novel is an absolute clusterf*ck of a sh!tshow. I ain't one to hate on anything, ever, but this really is a lost cause that will only make you look back regretfully on your wasted afternoon. 𝗜𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲'𝘀 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗜 𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗲, 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗼𝗹 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲'𝘀 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁, 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗲𝗽𝗶𝗰 𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲𝗱 𝗺𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝘀𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗸𝗲𝗲𝗽 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝘅𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁. This will likely forever be my only negative review on WW. 99% of novels can appeal to some audience and make readers happy, therefore making it a blessing, but this novel tries too hard to appeal to everyone. Hence why it's such a mess. Keep in mind, all this is coming from someone with exceedingly low standards and broad taste in general. 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝟴𝟬% 𝗼𝗳 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗽𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗴𝗼𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗻. Don't force yourself to enjoy this, and I'm truly sorry to be such a spoilsport. As always I would still recommend you at least try this if there's nothing else on your reading list as I don't want to stop anyone from discovering something they enjoy (even if it is a bit of a mess. I enjoyed the first parts of MGA when I read it after all lol).

**edit**

𝗙𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆, 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗲𝗻𝗷𝗼𝘆𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗽𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗲𝘅𝗲𝗰𝘂𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗽𝗼𝗼𝗿𝗹𝘆 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗺𝗲, 𝗜 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗮 𝘀𝗶𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗿, 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗹𝘆 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗱 𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗹 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗺𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗿𝗲𝘀— 𝗚𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻. Also on WW. Gate of Revelation is relatively similar to this novel. It has just about every major genre, but it's properly explained with context (MC is an NPC and his world is virtual game) and most importantly 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗹𝗮𝗿𝗴𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝘁'𝘀 𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝗮𝗿𝗰, 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗿𝗲𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗰𝘀/𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗿𝗲𝘀 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗱𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗹𝗼𝗽 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗠𝗖. I haven't touched GOR in a fair while but my impression of it remains purely positive. At least check the synopsis and reviews to see if it's your cup of tea. From memory every arc was like another story (properly inserted into GOR of course) with it's own Genre. Kind of like Terror Infinity or Ultimate Evolution but not just horror movies.

-NOTHING MAKES SENSE.

-EVERYTHING IS INCOHERENT.

-CONSISTENT AND GOOD PLOT IS NON-EXISTENT.

-ACTUAL PLOT IS AWFUL.

POSSIBLE TO SAVE IF AN EDITOR ESSENTIALLY REWROTE THE WHOLE NOVEL COS IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE—IT MAKES A WASTE OF TIME.

Written at chapter 48.

First: lord ducky has already written a review that really points out what mess this novel is. So you can alternativly just read that one and Ill just write some more points.

There is nothing bad about trying to mix genres. Not even if they are really mixed together insstead of sperated but within the same novel. But this author just throws around new stuff and does not commit to anything. Everytime you think there is now some kind of plateu the author would now work on for a while you get disappointed because it just stumbles for no acceptable reason into an other plot line which halve the time has no reason to be picked up.

Its just a mess. There might be some value if you could binge the whole series and it is a roller coaster of nonsense but entertaining. But with 1 chapter per day? No way its worth it when there is zero cohesion between anything - it just ends up as a mess where you have no clue wtf is going on.
