What I feared happend. You absolutely got lost with Villain Retirement. It's literally the second coming My Hermes System smh. I'm sorry to say, but you truly are not a good storyteller. VR had soo much potential and an amzing start. But this last arc bro? I've never in my life read such a rushed bundle of "cliche" storyplost. You literally starded 6 things at once in under 40 chapters. You need really reflect for book 2. FLUSH out thee story BEFORE you write/release it. Take your time and THINK the story through, in a logical standpoint. You are trying to hard to create drama/suspense/excitement. Stop doing al the basic steps and motions (like come on ALL your novels have a academy arc, like bruh). And get back to YOUR style of comedy and originality. That's what made MHS and VR so good when they first started. For the love of God this sad. You even started 2 other novels, I just know them is factors of the his horrible progression of VR. I even warned you in the early chapters. You love your big oof nonsense, your storytelling is the biggest oof of all. Tighten up son.

You really want to know why? Hermes System got pirated as soon as it got famous, along with the privelege chapters, not even a hundred chapters in. All 30 of them. Villain Retirement got pirated, along with the privilege chapters. All 30 of them right as soon as I finished writing the stockpile. Chapters that I wrote day and night without sleeping. What can I say, I'm famous in pirate sites. First I was flattered they ranked so high, higher than even most of the top books here. But then my income got cut by more than half. And so, history repeats itself. These piracy issue isn't going to stop soon, so I am going to have to live with that. I was ready to drop VR 50 chapters ago, and once again when I ended book 1. My motivation to write these stories is at its lowest-- that's why I start new books to just get me out of that. That's why I wrote VR in the first place during Hermes. And the only thing that's really stopping me from just dropping VR is that unlike Hermes, there are still a few people that like it enough to even support it financially. I am not hoping for you to understand, because that's my problem to bear. Lastly, I apologize if the story took a weird turn like Hermes. I always read the comments and I have been reading yours because it is a valid input. And thank you for reading this far, hopefully in the future if you decide to check out my works, I would have improved; or if I am still even writing at all. But right now, my motivation is almost non-existent. Big oof.

I fail to see how he did what you're accusing him of. You've just wrote yeah you did this thing and not elaborated on it at all. How is that review going to help him whatsoever??

He knows the things I'm talking about. I'm not elaborating because I don't want to mention spoilers. The author knows my previous comments and feedback. It's up to him what he does with those and this think piece. Either way I'm disappointed in his ability to close up a story, It's absolutely horrible. Hope he improves. How you might ask? Think of the whole story before releasing it. Feels like this man writes chapter to chapter each week, that's how good story's crumble. Everyone know how to start decently, but keepingg up the momentum is much harder. Romeru can't keep momentum if it hit him in the face 6 times. Just look at My Hermes System. If you don't agree you must not have read a lot of good stories I'm afraid.

I've not read good stories because my opinion doesn't line up with yours. That judgement makes no sense. I thought the ending was great and it ties in with things that have been hinted at since the start so your suggestion seems pretty baseless.

"Ties in with things that been hinted at in the start" Really? Well if you feel that way, feel free. But don't comment on my piece with that nonsense, my judgment still stands. This book lost all momentum in the last ± 100 chapters or so. If you fail to see that, once again, you have not read enough good storytelling books to recognize the drop in quality. That's just facts I'm sorry to tell you. Keep looking at the stats, more and more people are/going to agree. Just like how they did with My Hermes System Read books like The Oracle Path, Shadow Slave and Chaos Heir to see how adequate authors actual hold momentum after the first few arcs. Maybe I'm being to hopeful expecting you to understand, because we are discussing this on webnovel. A site filled with 95% boring, basic or just staight up bad novels. But please do try.

again opinions on a good book are completely subjective. Don't go here trashing my opinion just because I said you should elaborate more on yours. How am I supposed to look at stats for a book?? It does tie in to the start and I don't think you need to go and insult me all because I said you'd review wasn't all that helpful.

It is indeed subjective, but with things like ratings you can see that either the majority enjoys it (higher ratings) or the minority enjoying it (lower ratings). With My Hermes System (and now Villain Retirement) the majority in the beginning enjoyed the stories. But because og lost momentum in both books that transitioned in only a minority enjoying it and ultimately alot of people dropping or bad reviewing the books. Those are the stats I'm talking about. All you have to do is look at the differences in reviews at the start of the stories and the more recent ones. He's losing ground, and it's honestly sad to see he hasn't learned from the first time around. But just starts more novels. Once again I'm not elaborating because I don't want to mention spoiler, the review was solely based as a message for the author. If you feelclike you are being insulted, just feel free to walk away from my piece. I'm just giving it to you straight. And if you do have the time, read the books I mentioned. Maybe you'll see the light

That's a completely false statistic they, stay mostly the same throughout. I'm done arguing this point anyway. I'll go try out shadow slave as it looks alright, thx for the recommendation and goodbye.

I mean I get everything but is something wrong with academy arcs or is it just repetitive to you? Don't take the question too seriously, I am just curious.

TeDureShit1_2Lv3TeDureShit1_2

Honestly academy arc are fun, and make sense because most mcs are just at that age. But come on now, 3 books and all 3 start, focus and revolve around things that happend in that time. Is a bit much don't you think? But that's just my opinion

I can understand the lack of motivation when your source of income is treathed. But still Romeru, you've created a world here in a form of art. It's just sad to see your integrity as a writer collapse as the money begins to drop. You talk about night and day, do you want them days to have meant nothing? Because when you butcher a story like this, that's what your ultimately doing. I'm afraid I indeed can not understand the frustration your going through because I not a writer (yet). But you could have just idk put the book on pause and then start a new book. If you explained the piracy, I know people would've understood and just moved to Manaless Mage ( a book I also enjoy and give feedback on as I know you've seen). Ultimately I just want to see you flourish as a writer. At some point the popularity will outscale the piracy, you just have to have the will to face it. It's okay to just stop instead of rushing incompetence. No one will blame you for that

Have you been reporting the websites that are pirating your works? It will help force readers on the other websites to actually pay for your work instead of reading it for free.

Report them... Or try taking down all privilage chapters so that they are just locked chapters... Do something to fight back... Don't just give up on a book and deny yourself a few bucks because someone is stopping you from making a few more... The cycle will continue and you will just go on writing new books that you never complete... This will deter readers from reading your new books because they are not about to invest money and time in a book that will remain forever incomplete... As a result you will lose a source of income... For example, You cann't let fear of you work being pirated make you lose $200 because if it hadn't been pirated you would have made $300... At the end of the day its you who loses more than those sites after all they will just move on like you didn't drop the book...

Piracy is a uphill battle for writers. If you take one site down, another will take it place. So it will take alot energy and time to fight piracy. Its not worth it in my opinion.
