He decides to play a game, the biggest one in the world. A strategy game, focused on tactics, used to select the top managers of the largest international corporation.

The first volume of the LitRPG Series “Champion is Playing” is now live on Amazon. Check it out!

Second Book will be coming on Amazon on May 13.

Dan’s first tournament may have ended, but life goes on. His luck is still with him in his regular life as well, and it seems to be endless. However, he is surrounded by very smart people, and surely one of them is going to start doubting his talents, at least a bit?

Especially now, with a new game about to start. The latest foes are even more dangerous than the last and the rules are still unfamiliar to him. Dan wonders how reasonable the rules are in the first place. Is it really possible to take a competition that lasts a couple of hours at most seriously? A competition in which you are supposed to work together with simple monsters in order to destroy the enemy base?

And so, the story of an ordinary Russian guy who suddenly found himself in the future continues, and another battle between his luck and the rest of the world is about to start. Who will come out on top?

Endless dumb luck - Really like it

This story is not some kind of deep epic. It's bubblegum wish fulfillment. But it's done in a new way I haven't seen with hundreds of other similar stories under my belt and it's very good at what it is. Definitely better than most of the stuff on this site. If you're still considering reading, I'll point out that it has the following traits:

-Doing the stupidest thing possible every single time that somehow keeps winning

-Empire building

-A nice coverage of events through multiple perspectives

-Growth of skills/abilities/allies/acquired races

-Might have a bit of a harem in the future

-Armchair/post-battle deeper strategic thinking of what occurred

-Surprise approaches to winning a lot of typical fantasy situations

-LitRPG-lite. No tables. Leveling and abilities aren't a goal, but rather plot devices at the perfect moment to get him over the hump.

If you like the first 4 or 5 chapters you'll like the rest of the story. It's more of the same, just keeps snowballing bigger and bigger. Seems like frequent chapters too. (Good job author / thank you.)

Hilarious is the best word for this fiction

It’s a wonderful story that makes you smile. An interesting plot with curious main hero and a big number of good secondary characters. Samantha is really funny, I do like her.

To conclude, I laughed my head off, reading it, and now in anticipation for the next chapters.

Good story, rough English.

I really like this story. Different and fun, I'll definitely keep on reading. 

The one downside to this story is that there are times where the English is so bad that I can't really tell what is happening. I'm sure the author will improve though and look forward to the rest of their story.

Interesting premise foiled by poor writing

An interesting premise but poorly executed. Syntax seems subject to constant change, and the story itself can be nonsensical and difficult to follow. The majority of the characters are completely forgettable and the MC seems to only have achieved what he has through endless deus ex machina. If it was supposed do be comedic, it certainly wasn't very funny.

It is a LitRPG novel with an element of a comedy, it made me smile a couple of times, and it is a big advantage. Actions took place in a game similar to the heroes of might and magic. It is a nice idea. I loved this game and spent a great number of hours playing it in my childhood.
The story is a good one; I liked it. There is an interesting plot with funny twists, lucky main hero; honestly, I enjoyed reading the first chapters.
The author is doing a good job.
I'm rooting for MC and want to see the true spirit of player from 2010s.

The MC rolled the dice and his character got 99.9 luck on 100 .  At least it is true till Chapter 5.1. Some think of him as genius but the truth is this guy just plays rpg with god tier luck stat. 

wink

The only thing i don't like is that the chapters are so short.

This story is a mix of an old French comedy, a favorite game from childhood, and just a manual of psychology.

It's really funny and hilarious. A couple of times a week, I have a dinner break in a cafe next to my work, and when I read this story, there is always a smile on my face. In some magical way, it always lifts my mood for the rest of the day.

Book does a great work of laying the groundwork for the series.

It is a fun read and a great example of LitRPG, complete with stats/skills. Furthermore it manages to include these without interrupting the flow of the story.

Good, but still growing

I'll try to keep it spoiler free. Also, I suck at reviewing and understanding all the finer details of writing. Lastly, I am by no means another writer, and am just a scrub giving his opinion. Also, writing this after finishing 3.6

The story so far has been pretty good. The premise is interesting, but slightly unexplained. The characters personalities are there but I feel that they need to be built up a little better. Maybe something to make them feel more real? Maybe give them more of a motive individually? I don't know. Just, occasionally they feel a little shallow. The worldbuilding is still going on (I think), or at least I hope so. The MC's background, story, and surroundings are rather unexplained. Lastly, some sentences in the first few chapters are very confusing, mostly word choice and sometimes the sentence structure. I don't known if it is because english is the first language, or the chapter isn't read through at least once after they'e written.

Sorry, if I couldn't highlight the positive things more becuase I REALLY like the story so far, I just don't really know how to say it. Just trying my best to give some constructive criticism.

An easy read for any lurker.cool

So you have an MC that probably died to a monster and comes back in the future only to play a game to get started in life.

  1. He appears to be a dead beat in his time
  2. Is taken to be clever for being dumb like his VR character
  3. He profits from 2 things: Faulty programming and stupidity of his enemies

However, the character is likable enough to make it okay.

The premise of the story while not completely original is fresh in its packaging.

The story seems to aim for showing the differences between assumptions made and reality perceived from different socioeconomic standpoints. Lite psychology, no real economics or kingdom building in the classical sense. The dude just does his thing and people will take care of the rest.
