Firstly I honestly gotta say, what is up with all you people? Are you some kind of water army? .-. I see it in so many novels, without many chapters, right from the start there are lots of ''reviews'' giving 4-5 stars. Yet none of them is even a real review but a senseless upvote without explanation and no real review. SO ffs please give a real review with reasonable starts and explanation why it is so when giving a review. (Rant end, dat really bothered me for a long time.) Now for the review itself. It is just a temporary one and will be changed after 100+ chapters are released. Right now it is just meant as an overview for the current chapters. Translation Quality: I give that one 4 stars, 5 would mean perfection but nobody is perfect. Yet I did not find any big mistakes or anything noticable. As such the translation quality is very good and the flow of the story is nicely done. No issues here. If it keeps up like this this score will stay the same. Update stability: I give that a 1 star rating for now and shall wait to a point of 100+ chapters to see if it keeps up. If yes I naturally will raise the rating. Story Developement: Same as Update Stability, alas I will give it a 2 star rating for now as it seems to go into an interesting direction. Military seems interesting, and the idea of the story is a nice one too. Character design: For now I will give it 2 points too. For the ****** reason that it is only 21 chapters for now and the character is still in the establishing phase of the story. I have to little info to work with it. Alas the character itself does seem ok at this point. I have not found any issues as of yet, at least no major ones. (Can't be worse then cobi anyway) World Building: The world itself seems very interesting, the flux energy and the shadow haxx. I am tempted to give it 4 points right now but I wont do it yet. Reasons are that the world also is still in establishment phase and a lot is still to be known. There also is still the possibility of author san fucking up terribly with that and leaving out endless details and explanations. Right now as example I am wondering what the hell is the 5th dimension. Is it an dimension of its own? If so whats so different about it? Are there other dimensions? I basically got told nothing cept yup, tis the 5th dimension. No info no nothing. If there will be more infos on such things and explain things about those places which seem common knowledge in the story I will rate it higher. The end. At least for now, I am quite interested in this story for now. Let's see if it keeps up or if I will get disappointed.


There is zero reason for this to be as popular as it is. Plot is overdone and there are many better alternatives. Theres not enough chapters for any real development yet people are going crazy over nothing


Can anyone tell me the reason why a lot of people like the story ?, The story is really not that great just average.😐😐😐 ("??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????")


I really can't understand why so much people like this. The story is pretty generic, "hero gets a magic intelligent item in the form of a system that grants OP power with some xianhuan context", the powers of the hero is akin to lazy writing, even the psychology of the characters is weird. The world has interesting elements, but even SAO is better at recycling the gaming element. The "fast pace" masks something close to "I just want to write a story in a virtual world". Sad.


This novel must have been written by the 12 year old son of the owner of Qidian or something. Otherwise it is beyond me how it could reach rank 1. Everything within this story barely scratches the surface. Ability? Family? World building? Main character? Friends and Love Interest? Each of those barely get half a sentence in passing, before we move on to the next clichee.


Reveal spoiler


Website : qidian china Views : 420thousand Rating : 7.3(149) Chapters : 547 Status : ongoing Word count : 1.19 million not much popular in china imo


Over rated. Too slow of a phase with the story, too OP (ch 15 already had godly skills), low IQ MC (doesn't use his hack every time), incomplete description of levels and whatnot...


The story is very generic. While the translations are decent the story and character devolopment is lacking. The world building is also quite generic as I've read many novel with a similar setting


The amouth of false votes is amazing or there are 6000 stupid a out there, the novel is waaaay overrated, while the translation quality and speed is nice the rest is avarage at best, the world building is confusing as fuk, and the character development a mess


Only read 10 chapters so far. Too much filler. Very slow pace. Just not me. ----------------------------------------------- xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


YAAAY. Finally! Let's all celebrate the moment when Shadow Hack is not on the 1st place in Power Ranking!!..................................


From the 18 chaps until now, I don't see a Harem, or a Stupid MC, or an Over Powered MC (well, sometimes), the storyline is very captivating, it's a "system" meant to hack, obviously. Tags: [weak to strong], [fast paced improvement], [system], [skills drops], [unique cultivation system], [funny], [not enough chapters per week], [want more], [translator work harder pls]


Finally it's ranking gets down, I don't know what the fuss was abt this novel so I started reading it and you know what, just two days ago MC was no one but now he is so OP that all others are lunatics and dumb and stupid. And shouldn't the author must explain abt the world background a little bit first. I read till 30 chapters and it was so CONFUSING like what is this dimension, dimension coin, beast, space and all. Does the dimension is diffrent world or not and also he gets a old computer or and AI attached thingy and his other avatar is it in game world he gets the avatar. I don't know.


- The idea is good, but author don't have good logic, ex; Li yunmu make fake avatar named Li Yun, Li Feng. Bloody hell!! - Mc did'n have unique character, except ret*arded decision making - Plot that make you want to punch on author face and Li yunmu!!


How is this the number one trending LN for the week? Smells like bots are already abusing QI's ranking. 90 chapters. . . bad story, crap character development, and horrible cliche's. *Sigh* QI needs to look into fixing bot abuse.


Not worthy of the rank of first on the site. There is nothing special at all going on here. MC finds an old machine and because of boredom gains OPness. I've read bad beginning to novels but this one takes the cake at the character's opening lines being boredom. If there were more chapters I might be able to rate this higher but there is nothing special to see here. Characters are plain and antagonists are your everyday classics. There were even filler chapters in the first 20, come on now, I expect better from a first ranked novel.


I am Chinese, I read the original, I do not know why the translator will translate it into the China Continent, it means the Middle-earth Continent or the Central Continent.


the background story is kindda weird, where earth is fallen from meteor, animal become monster, and people and continent got destroyed, and it only took 227 year to create world peace environment and gamer with commonal MC. the background is identical with Sw0allowed Star. it seem got inspired from it. because the background is nonsense the story will be confusing. i'm out.


Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Nonsense. Damn 140 characters minimum.
