Review Detail of Kotario in Guild Wars

Review detail

Here are the novel's pros and cons. Read carefully before beginning, so you don't end up dissatisfied and angry, because you're more than likely going to rant and I'm going to want to bang my head on the wall. Pros: 1. Reincarnation handled well. There is logic behind it and a relevant reason, though it is veiled behind some mystery. 2. Dark themes. This is not a story of good guy saving the world and basking us villains in the light of his noble morals. It is dark (and unfortunately, sometimes edgy) story with things that would offend people of this era. If you're the type to be triggered, do not read. No one is forcing you to. 3. Power couple. The MC and the FMC are extremely unique and possess a trait that makes them stand above all others, together and individually. 4. Overpowered MC. This means no running away from enemies or always being the underdog. More than likely, you will sympathize with the enemies of the MC. 5. Long chapters. Each chapter is 3000 words long, meaning that there is a lot of content in each of them. Sometimes there is fast-paced plot, sometimes there is dialogue and sometimes there are long soliloquies or narration/explanation/exposition in each of them. 6. Non-scripted characters. One-dimensional or background characters do not say the same type of thing or act the same kind of way in every scene. More often than not, they will speak and act in ways you would find interesting. Cons: 1. Annoying start. The first 15 or so chapters are 50-50 in terms of preference by readers. I started the novel in Jan 2019, having been off and on with it until August 2019. Those first few chapters have dialogue and actions that are of a typical CN and there are plot elements that might annoy you. After chapter 30 though, every single response I’ve received from readers are approval only, even up to the current chapter we’re on (114). 2. Too many explanations. Sometimes I can abruptly pause the plot to explain what is going on, how it affects the world, the reason why the characters in that scene are doing what they’re doing and other technical details. Call it my own type of filler. 3. Polyamory. There is a power couple and they are linked by fate, but there are other… ‘waifus’ who are there for varying reasons. There is a rule here, that the MC only ‘plays’ with very, very specific ‘waifus’ in the digital world, but is only sexually involved with his soulmate in the real world. Yes, she is aware and has no qualms. Note: This is not a harem. Harem means that there are multiple women who the MC is sexually involved with, and has feelings for. The MC has feelings for only one person and the rest are digital entities who serve one purpose or another. 4. Plot holes. I am not ashamed to admit it, there are a few plot holes in the story. I fixed most of them, but some were so problematic that I had to roll with them. I recently got a story editor, so that was how I even found out. 5. Fewer releases. My release rate is a constant 1 chap per day at the least with no exceptions, but some of you are used to 2-3 chaps a day from other authors. As I said above, I release 3k words a day, and those who release 2-3 chapters either have a length of 1.5k words or 1k words. So really, is there a difference? Here’s what to do before reading Guild Wars. 1. Check the tags. 2. Read reviews (both negative and positive, I’ve replied to some of both). 3. Clear out assumptions and comparisons in your mind, otherwise you’d be ruining your experience. 4. Keep the mentality of ‘this isn’t realistic’ out of your mind, this is fiction. What is real is what the novel wants to be real. Assess things based on the logic within the story if you truly want to immerse yourself. Enjoy your experience!

Dang. I wish all authors wrote such great reviews on their stories. I get kind of tired of “Hey there! Shameless author review here...” I give this review 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Only read a few chapters so far, but I feel like this review is spot on. So far all the complaints I’ve seen in the comments are dumb anyway. “OP character is OP wahhh” I’m digging the darkness and the no fucks given OP-ness, and the fact that you definitely have the story in hand. I also appreciate your vocab. Thanks for this great breakdown, and I’m even more excited to keep reading! Also...I don’t think people understand how freaking long it takes to write 3000 words. At least, 3000 good words while also keeping track of the previous thousands of words you’ve already written and the thousands of words yet to go to make sure these particular 3000 words flow and advance plot and are interesting and are funny and and and... I’m super impressed you’re rocking a chapter a day as it is! Keep up the good work, bro. You’re awesome!

Yes, this is a dark novel with all the ugly bits, so there is rape on background characters by background characters. No, canonically, the FMC doesn’t NTR the MC.

For those of us using vouchers instead of coins, your single 3k chapter is infinitely better than the 3 1k chapter releases of other novels

Yes, but it’s worse for me since I don’t earn squat from fast passes 😞.

After reading a bit further into the story I think I can safely say that Draco will have absolutely no true friendships nor character relationship beyond Eva that I can say that is genuine, it's like if Draco and Eva just one day just leave earth with nobody else, they wouldn't have any qualms about it except some 10 second melancholy. Everybody is a dead fish in the perspective of the sociopathic mc. They also have no humanity at all which is fun for a while but gets stale when you realize you're not that edgy, but I can't fault you for that I suppose since it's awfully obvious this is "a dark novel." It's your novel I guess but it's a shame since this started off with so much potential. This isn't made in anger but disappointment. Also, Eva is a very stale character once you get past the cute obsession. Have a nice day.

Dude fast passes are what I'm getting now as a reward and I'm too poor to buy coins. I thought that fast passes were a new type of currency where you (authors) would be given money in return the more readers they are but it seems otherwise.

A very good review of your own book I will start reading it now. I was hesitant because it shared a name with a game thought it was a VR version story of said game but this helped me thank you

Mr author. Do you earn atleast a little money from the fast passes? I really really want to support you and continue your book as a fan but fast passes don’t really do a good job of supporting the author, I wish SS were still a thing and not coins. How can I support you out of Webnovel?

There is a link to a patreon on the synopsis page. That’s the best I could ask for and don’t worry, just keep reading. I enjoy your presence.
