The Issue: The System Arrives!

Life was going well for the majority of humanity when a wave of energy passed over the world, and everything froze.  A Pop-up appeared in front of everyone's eyes, whether awake or asleep.  This pop-up read:
Magic Anomaly Normalization Allocation (MANA) System has been activated.
Local Space-Time has been stopped until processing has been completed.
Currently Processing 11,789,972,382 Sentients on the planet.
Processing...

After that, everyone vanished into a Personal Tutorial, which is where our main character, Joriya Alvinos, starts out, after having been in a physical coma for more than a decade.

Overpowered x unlimited = boring

(as of chapter 14)

A stat/skill/interface system comes to Earth and everybody can use a point-buy shop to improve their potential. The MC, through luck and synergy and system errors, is able to get more than 90% discount on prices and basically buys everything, including the impossible options: stats multiple times the original maximum level, all the magic and ki abilities, soulbound gear made from the universe's best material, whatever you can imagine. His first fights are ended quickly by throwing nukes left and right and critical hits back and front even though his opponents are of a very high tier.

I guess many people will like this kind of story but I don't like it. For me, overpowered characters that did not earn their abilities and that always instantly succeed in everything are just boring. It's like watching a fight between a human with a flame thrower and 100 crippled ants: nothing bad could ever happen to the MC but if so, it would be one all-powerful entity against another in a very unbelieveable way.

Badly written op-ness, untapped story potential

First of all, the prologue was nice, but it was completely unrelated to the MC.

Secondly, while I generally don't mind op-ness, it was introduced in a very shallow fashion, the character lacked any depth, generally for an op story to be good, there needs to be something other than the challenges the main character faces to draw the readers in, this fiction lacked that, also, I felt the character just threw his money around, and didn't do anything for his op-ness, he just woke up like that, this is just my personal taste here, but I prefer when a character becomes op, rrater than just buying op-ness, I think it makes it feel cheap and tasteless, the prologue was fantastic though, and if the story was more like it, or was done surrounding the characters in the prologue, I'd be very interested, sadly, it isn't, maybe I just didn't read far enough, but I just didn't feel it was worth it, I think you have good potential as an author, but you need to make deeper characters, and make your writing feel a little less shallow and more interesting, maybe it's just me, but I just couldn't feel any connection or interest in the story, because the character was very plain, and there was no real emotion investment when he became op, goodbye, I'm sorry if I just didn't read far enough in. But my conclusion is, practice more, you have nice potential.

It's just silly how OP the MC is

The main character starts out as a completely overpowered munchkin. In five minutes he goes from worrying about one goblin to killing 100 of them. No thanks.

It's called OVERpowered for a reason

I've read up to the 17th chapter and will have to call it quits here. I've never been a fan of stories with overpowered protagonists, especially ones written by new and/or ameteur authors on this site, and this just reinforces that. You just need to read up to the 10th chapter to know what I mean. 

The only reason this rating isn't lower is that the grammar actually isn't bad.

Really fun OP MC story so far

A ton of fun to read and definitely a romp. Has an OP MC that is logical and makes good decisions while still being fun. Some funny elements, some great action elements, and overall very well done so far. Highly recommended if you like fun. Give it a go and see how you like it.

I literally only read this to enjoy how bad it is. Like a really bad show or movie that's so bad it's funny.

The grammar is bad. The characters are two dimensional, unrealistic, and worst of all boring. The plot has no tension or drive. The system doesn't make sense, isn't interesting or entertaining.

Read it just as a primer for how not to write or for the guilty pleasure.

Everybody says the mc is super OP yea?What if I told you actually every human on Earth is almost as op, and that the story is more about kingdom building and galactic stuff than it is ''omg such a strong man, thanks for saving us''.

Everybody from Earth  got 2 mil points, while other races by their maturity only have 250k.This changes the foundation of the story greately and is highly interesting compared to the other op mc stories on this site.

It definetly has potential, please keep on writing Mr. author.

The author creates an interesting world and a MC who has the potential to be very interesting once the story really develops.

I don't really mind the OP style so far as the story is just getting started and it seems clear that the MC is going to be facing planetary and even galactic level threats sooner rather than later.  If you think he is OP then just pretend the author spent 100+ chapters to get him to this point.

This is definitely worth following until the author proves whether or not he can actually balance the OP MC in a fun and effective fashion.
