    This has recently been picked up and is being translated by @littleshanks .
    Here's the synopsis made by Shanks and taken directly from his site for convenience:

    'The world’s largest VRMMO, Conviction, was almost like a second world for humanity. It had integrated itself into the real world’s economy, with both corporations and individuals seeking their fortunes through the game. In this game, Nie Yan prided himself in his Level 180 Thief. He could barely be considered among the top experts in the game. Though, that was the only thing he could take pride in. He was penniless and unable to advance in life; a situation he was forced into by the enemy of his father. If it weren’t for the little money he made by selling off items in Conviction, he would’ve barely been able to eat. In the end, he chose to settle his matters once and for all. He assassinated his father’s enemy. He lay dying shortly after being shot in the pursuit. However, that wasn’t the end of his story. Instead, he awoke moments later to find that he had reincarnated into his past-self. Armed with his experience and knowledge of future events, he sets out to live his life anew.'

    Even though there are only 10 translated chapters so far, the quality of the story already seems to be a notch above the rest of the VRMMO novels currently being translated. This is even further accentuated by the exceptional work of the translator along with his editor/proofreader(s).

    Let's get some discussion going and attract more readers to this budding translation and promising novel!

    This story now has my interest. Though since it's Chinese I'll probably wait for one to two hundred chapters to be translated before digging in.

    Can anyone confirm how many chapters this has?
    Ongoing or complete?

    I have to say that I agree with that opinion.
    I've read up to chapter 150 googletled, and so far, I'm liking it more than Ark and Moonlight Sculptor.

    No wonder I like it! I didn't even check the author. Its been on my watch list for awhile when the first few chapters were translated. I'm glad someone has picked it up.

    I agree. I can't stand stories that focus on guilds.

    I was a little confused in the last chapter (10). Is that girl a previous enemy or friend? From what he said, I only speculate that she was a friend that betrayed him or something...

    If you look at mad snail style of writing in tdg and csr you can expect fast action and cliff-hanger for every chapter
