    bruh im just super fucking salty
    i spent my whole ass week trying to find where it gets good in this novel, and it just kept getting worse. The mc personality, the walls of dialogue, monologue rants, the tsundere ho , the list goes on
    which one of u rated Losers rated this a 5 and why ????????? What do you even see in this???? Like id understand if it was a 3/5 but this is a solid 4.8 on scribble hub/royalroad

    *shrug* even my work got a 4.8 on scribblehub, so there is that. SH readers are less strict with ratings than RRL and NU.

    I never read it so I can't comment though.

    The thing is to rate you need an SH account and my guess many people don't bother opening one yet since its still relatively new. Any Tony kind of cleans up the 1 star bombers. So that might attribute to the higher overall raitings.

    I only read one chapter. The story hadn't really kicked off yet.

    Ratings on webnobel, SH, RRL and NU are all grossly overrated. NU conveys the best picture currently. As for RRL even if their ratings are very incorrect they do communicate directly with the writer so people use it as an encouragement. SH will most likely have the same problem in the future.

    It's one of those vaguely political novels where everybody is constantly scheming against everybody else, there are no true allies, etc. Definitely not my style of story. It's also full of shallow people who if your status goes away for five seconds, they decide you are worthless. There is a very constant stream of lies, half truths, and manipulation. I can see why some people would like it, but it is definitely not for people who want fluffy stories.

    I read it for skill progression. I dislike the mc and the story. The leech pet have more vibrant personality than the mc. If you want me to give it a rating, a 3 probably suitable. This is the sort of story that you just read and don't think much about it. Like salty snack for main course.

    Quite an amount of confidence you got there in yourself.

    On the contrary, wouldn't this actually refer to a lack of confidence?

    It took you a week to figure out you didn’t like the fucking novel?! Wtf are you some sorta masochist?

    “Mmm yeah this steak tastes like shit. It’s flavorless, dry, and tough to chew, but I’ll just keep chewing on it for another week or so to make sure.” :hmm:

    If you didn’t like it within a few chapter then just drop it! Why torture yourself trying to find something to like? :blobconfused:

    Also I know it’s surprising, but people do have different tastes if you didn’t know.

    Not trying to change your mind or anything, but a few reasons people might like it is:

    • Near flawless grammar
    • Lit RPG
    • Transmigration
    • DOT Character opposed to the Beat You With Friendship or Scream At You To Power Up or Power Up Mid Battle

    maybe people have different opinions? I commend you trying something outside your norm. but having a popular novel not meet your preferences should be expected. we arent borg yet. i hope so.

    By the way, reviews at royal road are quite controlled. i've been directly told to either rate high or not rate at all. granted, it does make a sliver of sense, after i saw a handful of novels abandoned because authors cry/quit over any criticism.

    True with the review. Don't trust them at face value. I even hate randidly ghosthound after reading it. Realize that I really hated the mc after giving 400 chapters a try.

    I loved it at first. It was fun and the MC was really humorous, but then the entire story started to float the MC's goat way too much, what with him being a giant super-genius mary sue master manipulator super badass~ and I got completely turned off by it. It's a good story, but the overbearing MC love is awful, and although I hate using the word...it became CRINGE.

    idk, i generally expect that when a novel is rated around 5 by around 1 mili people i went in not expecting a 5, but i was certainly not expecting a 1/5
