Beginning Needs Work, It Gets Much Better

The beginning of this novel definitely needs more oomph. More information would greatly be appreciated, but as I kept reading the story pulled me in and I didnt want to leave.

The MC is flawed, don't go in expecting a god gamer (i think it is actually explained much later he isn't someone who games often- prob better to have that known to the readers early...) But he learns and grows, and the progression I come for in LitRPGs is definitely there.

There is a bit of mystery tied in to the story, but I don't think it covers for a plot just yet. Maybe if the info was prevalent earlier in the story it would be easier to show. Grammar is on point and I like the style in which the novel flows.

But if you enjoy a good climb through a tower and killing mobs and watching stat progression, definitely give it a try. Here's hoping the author can put information towards the character & plot early on in the story.

I like the story and the writing style. The whole great tower theme works well and the MC is still discovering what the result of his actions are in the world. As most of his power comes from his gear I expect him to really struggle on the higher floors, he doesn't seem to be particularly skilled at combat and has a huge advantage over most mobs, however the mystery of the tower keeps every floor interesting.

There is a plot for people who are wondering, but it is not apparent in the early part of the story. Another thing that needs to be mentioned is that the motive is not clear for the MC in a way of achieving certain goal. He wants to get better, sure, but I feel like he's just wondering around with a general direction at first. It really gets better later on, however. And the plot do thickens and progress. If you like this kind of litrpg series with op characters, this story definitely deserves a try and a bit of patience.

Illogical and plotless

This is not a good novel. The setting is completely illogical. The difficulty setting varies from encounter to encounter. No plot that I can detect, and MC motivation is completely missing. The mc is also a special flower, who gains skills easily just because. And then gets attacked by hyper-powerful enemies that I fail to see anyone remotely normal having any chance at defeating. So the difficulty seems to scale according to mc power. Again, illogical for a multi-player game.

Phenomenal but not perfect

After searching for days for a good novel, I come across this and it just had me hooked from the start. Although the team betrayal storyline is kinda overdone and the main character is somewhat bland, I hardly even care because that’s how much I like this story. Major props to the author on making this. Just needs a more fleshed our main character and giving the story more plot.

Rarely read something this bad

This story is excruciatingly bad, even for RRL standards, it's entirely without plot(or rather, cohesion), the MC has no motivations whatsoever, there's no consistency either.

The only thing that wouldn't be done better by a 4 year old, is the grammar, which is somewhat decent.

In which a Murder Hobo ambles pointlessly around

No real plot.  No real progression.  No real goals.  Just a main character who moves from completely random event to completely random event, killing everything that gets in his way.

It’s No Shakespeare

but it doesn’t need to be. The MC is consistent, if a little big standard, the game world has a decent enough mystery and intrigue about it to motivate his adventures, and that sweet,sweet character progression we’re all addicted to is here in spades. It’s simple and nothing new, but you don’t need to reinvent the wheel for a good time

Great tower-based action/adventure

This story checks all of the right boxes for me: high paced action, a competent MC, and no annoying harems/sycophantic side characters. If those things interest you as well, give this series a try.

Well written, fun story

Luck based, tower story.   Enjoyable. 

 

Sometimes it goes easy, sometimes challenges.  Some mystery.  I like the growth and the MC.  Hoping he does well despite his challenges!
