Moments

Today, yes. We are talking about another world, another culture. They might be prioritizing realism — perhaps as a way to prepare for real life — over fun. That's what the game symbolizes.

Though I understand your point: I wouldn't have any fun playing a game like this. In our era, playing games is a way to escape reality. However in theirs it's quite the opposite. View More

N0xiety: Honestly, the concept of a Juggernaut Player doesn't even make sense in a game where death is permanent in the instance you are playing. Games like CoD reward players that achieve certain killstreaks or other achievements by giving them tools of mass destruction for a few seconds, but in that game dying once is nothing. You don't play strategic maps that require you to give hours of your time and plan. So this Jaggernaut concept makes no fking sense whatsoever in a game. The moment it enters the fray, you are nothing but a target practice and your hours of fighting and planning is gone to absolute ****! No player would stand for such a stupid thing. Sure, war isn't fair, but games HAVE TO BE FAIR if you want players to keep playing your game! Author really should play more games as i think he understands jack sh*t about a gamers thinking process. If some guy with too much money to spend can hop into a weapon of mass destruction and just roflstomp dozens of players in the vicinity just by existing, no one would play that game mode as the game gives you no way to fight back. There is no point playing a game mode where you can become a sitting target and all your efforts are worth jack sh*t...

Skully_: Review of Slayer

Originality - 5/5 For this site cultivation stories are very common. But this story is quite different. Its a cross between Natural Born Killers and a Cultivation Master Fighting

Story - 3/5 There is a great story buried beneath the info dump. I can see it in the Authors imagination but it is really struggling to be communicated in the text. The problem is the writing style. I will give examples and suggestions after the categories.

Characters - 2/5 There is an MC, an Antagonist and side characters. The MC is not well defined, I understand he is a master, young in appearance, an expert. But I know little about his goals, motivation or personality. A weak to strong MC can be much more appealing than a straight up Master. But that is for the Author to determine.

The antagonist has an issue that he is MC focused or obsessed. I advise you create a personality, motivations and goals for the Antagonist. His life does not revolve around the MC unless the MC stands in his way for a vital objective. OR he stands in the MCs way for his objective. At the moment I cannot tell. Cao just hunts the MC. For Reasons.

Flow - 1/5 The flow is terrible. It's an infodump. There is conversation but it is poorly written. There is a description of people and places. But the way it is delivered in massively long sentences which are not well thought out. These are not genius sentences, the language is poor. What could have been said with four words uses twenty. And its repetitive.

Examples
I have taken an exert and rewritten it. Its much easier than trying to descibe how to improve.

FROM THIS
Leo then pushed the wrist of the man straight towards his face the knife which was now facing the fat man stabbed into his right eye the fat man screamed in agony as blood along with a gooey liquid rushed out, Leo pulled the knife out of the fat mans right eye when Leo pulled the knife out his eyeball which was slashed in half was visible along with the flesh behind his eye Leo then sent the knife once again to the fat mans face, but this time to his left eye the fat man screamed once again in agony unable to bear the pain of having both his eyes stabbed.
Leo did not stop there he pulled the knife out from the fat man's left eye and pierced the fat man's face first he struck on his cheek then on his nose then on his forehead by this time the fat man had stopped screaming which meant that he had passed on but that did not stop Leo who continued to slash the fat man's face 5 more times until the fat man's brain, eyes, nose were all mixed his skull was cracked in many places and his face was covered with nothing but rushing blood from all direction his face was now beyond recognizable.


TO THIS

Leo pushed the man’s wrist back towards his own face. As the knife slowly entered the fat man’s right eye, he screamed in agony. Blood and a gooey liquid rushed out as Leo removed the knife. The eyeball still clung to the knife, skewered on the blade, as Leo stabbed the fat man in the face again. This time piercing the right eye as the fat man continued to scream with increasing shrillness. The fat man was unable to bear the pain of multiple stabbings to the face, and his screaming stopped as he blacked out moments before his death.
.
When the frenzy concluded the fat man’s eyes, nose, cheeks and mouth were indistinguishable in the bloody mess that was once his face.

There is no need for thought bubbles (single quotations) in 3rd person when handled correctly.

FROM THIS
'I'm sure Cao will be searching for me, I can't stay in this village anymore since it's the closest to the city the chances of him coming here are high' Thinking this Leo

TO THIS
Leo was sure Cao would be searching for him, he couldn’t stay in the village anymore. It was closest to the city and the chances of Cao coming there were high.

Suggestion: I think you should keep writing. It takes 10,000 hours to master anything. I would love it if you try and take on board what I have said and read book of authors. But keep writing, writing and writing. TBH my first 200,000 words were crap. You are doing great.

Nyko: I was pretty astounded when I saw the ratings for this novel - if not saddened.
This is... complicated.

I was glad to see this on Qidian since I started to use this app and The Dark King was a pretty good and original novel IMO. I binged it up to around chapter 400 I guess ?
Anyway, I was sad because I don't understand how people can give 5 stars to blatant copy pasta of typical xianxias, while trashing someone who, for once, did something a bit original.
And succeeded at it.

The Dark King is a post-apocalyptic novel about the survival of a young boy forsaken by the world.
Clearly not the light-headed kind of novel, The Dark King brings the most out of its story by toying with the reader's emotions.
I dunno if you ever cried reading a novel - I did - and somehow, I find it quite pleasant.
It's a food for the soul - as some great man once said.
The Dark King is, as usual in chinese novels, a story with a powerful main character.
However, and this is where it differs from the norm, there is no oh-so-welcomed/blatantly obvious plot armor. Of course the main character won't die. Nevertheless it doesn't mean he'll never fail.
The author tries to make it as realistic as possible, even if it means showing the readers the ugly side of humanity.
So the hero is a normal boy starting as low as you can start : treated as a low-life by the lowest of low-lives.
Nothing unusual.
But surprisingly there is no multicolored thunder coming to make him a killing god, no sudden heaven-trashing artifact reversing single-handedly his fate.
No, he simply just climbs the hierarchy using his guts and his wits.
Such a shame that the author wouldn't allow the clever hero to live a blissful existence.
Tragedy befalls him one after the other and he falls to a pathetic state.
The author depicts the transition of cleverness to cunningness.
Throughout the story the main character - who furthermore didn't live in a pink world of pixies and unicorns - gets the taint of society unraveled to him and becomes desillusioned.
A very believable transformation happens.
The hero wanted to survive, now, he wants to live.
Even if it means being ruthless and using the most underhanded tactics.

In a nutshell, the hero has to fight more against the human of the inside than the monsters of the outside world.
He fights many action-packed battles, but prevail in the political curtains.
He becomes strong both mentally and physically not through some heaven-sent opportunities, but because of what he experienced.

So when I see this getting such a rating, I feel it is my duty to speak up.
This is a wonderful novel.
Thanks for your time.

Nyko: Yeah, I thought so myself.
What you are saying is probably true.
However I'm pretty tired of reading the same old so this is like a breath of fresh air to me.
As you say I'm glorifying it, but I'm not really lying either. I believe reviews are supposed to help the reader understand the novel and look forward to it, so I'll indulge in such melodramaticness for now.
Sorry if I ticked you off.

I dunno if you ever cried reading a novel - I did - and somehow, I find it quite pleasant.
It's a food for the soul - as some great man once said.
The Dark King is, as usual in chinese novels, a story with a powerful main character.
However, and this is where it differs from the norm, there is no oh-so-welcomed/blatantly obvious plot armor. Of course the main character won't die. Nevertheless it doesn't mean he'll never fail.
The author tries to make it as realistic as possible, even if it means showing the readers the ugly side of humanity.
So the hero is a normal boy starting as low as you can start : treated as a low-life by the lowest of low-lives.
Nothing unusual.
But surprisingly there is no multicolored thunder coming to make him a killing god, no sudden heaven-trashing artifact reversing single-handedly his fate.
No, he simply just climbs the hierarchy using his guts and his wits.
Such a shame that the author wouldn't allow the clever hero to live a blissful existence.
Tragedy befalls him one after the other and he falls to a pathetic state.
The author depicts the transition of cleverness to cunningness.
Throughout the story the main character - who furthermore didn't live in a pink world of pixies and unicorns - gets the taint of society unraveled to him and becomes desillusioned.
A very believable transformation happens.
The hero wanted to survive, now, he wants to live.
Even if it means being ruthless and using the most underhanded tactics.

In a nutshell, the hero has to fight more against the human of the inside than the monsters of the outside world.
He fights many action-packed battles, but prevail in the political curtains.
He becomes strong both mentally and physically not through some heaven-sent opportunities, but because of what he experienced.

So when I see this getting such a rating, I feel it is my duty to speak up.
This is a wonderful novel.
Thanks for your time.

Nyko: I was pretty astounded when I saw the ratings for this novel - if not saddened.
This is... complicated.

I was glad to see this on Qidian since I started to use this app and The Dark King was a pretty good and original novel IMO. I binged it up to around chapter 400 I guess ?
Anyway, I was sad because I don't understand how people can give 5 stars to blatant copy pasta of typical xianxias, while trashing someone who, for once, did something a bit original.
And succeeded at it.

Nyko: Yeah, I thought so myself.
What you are saying is probably true.
However I'm pretty tired of reading the same old so this is like a breath of fresh air to me.
As you say I'm glorifying it, but I'm not really lying either. I believe reviews are supposed to help the reader understand the novel and look forward to it, so I'll indulge in such melodramaticness for now.
Sorry if I ticked you off.
