    There are many issues with that, mainly:

    1. They already have a hired translator. It'll be very difficult to wrestle away this novel away from the Qidian translator, if not impossible.

    2. Not a Qidian fan. I personally dislike (really dislike) Qidian for many reasons. And I don't want to sign their contracts or get tied down by them as they have harsh terms and conditions. (If you haven't seen the contract...) I also disagree with the way they do translations. Qidian focuses on just shooting out the chapters as fast as they can without regard for the quality. I don't post chapters until it satisfies my minimum expectations of quality.

    So yeah, Qidian and me don't exactly get along together :blobconfused: Most readers don't care anyway, quality will have a noticeable drop and you may not understand some chapters or plot but the novel would be your typical action novel after all. find it quite a shame personally, i wanted the novel to have quality work which brought out the best in the novel

    Question. What happened to original body owner? Did link just take over the body fully killing original owner off? Usually stories explain why MC was able to take over someone else's body. Usually previous owner died.

    Still unknown

    Note: Descent of the God of Magic is now Advent of the Archmage. Qidian is putting out chapters, a lot of them, but we're seeing they chose a new title...:(

    I agree with that. Some of the name changes are rather odd especially.

    I wanna be their editor so badly tho, translation wise ok but the editor needs to really step up his game

    Other than that the translation is better than i expected so a solid 4/5

    Just be wary, when ever any word that should have a rinc in it says Link instead. Editors were lazy when they changed MC name and just did a mass change of all rinc to link. Thus princess became pLinkess. Shows lazy quality control.

    Yeah that confused the Crapo out of me the first time, also the second chapter they uploaded it's the same first chapter.
