    Seems like the last update from WW is 20 April, and the release rate seems slow. While QI is pumping like crazy.

    Anyone know what happens to WW ? I thought they're putting much more effort to finish it.

    My assumption is that the translator of WW is mia, dead or dying.

    There was supposed to be the collab to push to the finish but that dropped off and now we readers are back where we started. Scratching our heads in confusion.

    Some notice or info about what might be going on would be nice. @rwxwuxiaworld can you enlighten us sect juniors to the situation?

    From at least 2 parts/day to a parts/2 day since april 12, maybe they already realized that it isn't worth it to competing with qi?

    Honestly the best thing I've learned from reading translated novels is patience. Chapter released? Great! Thank the gods. No chapter? Great! More time to do other stuff.

    That and I understand that translations take time and that the translators are human too. Still, it would be nice to know if everything's a-ok after about a week-ish of slowness ( as in compared to the announced "schedule" of 2 a day, a week of slowness raises concerns).

    It wasn't about that. It was about what WW said and what actually happened now.

    If there wasn't any claim on the first place, people wouldn't be complaining or asking.

    I think another issue is the point in the novel the released chapters have reached. If this were much, much earlier in the novel we'd probably have more patience.

    But we're moving into the last stage of the novel where the cliffs (so far) are steep, high and sharp, important things are to happen and the story pace picks up. Combine that with yet another unexplained vanishing, the seeming end of the 'marathon to the finish' and the fact that QI is far ahead and you have a recipe for lost readership.

    I think only the most hardcore anti-QI readers wouldnt consider moving to QI to continue the story. Even quite a few of the chapter comments on WW lately have been about people considering jumping to QI because of the situation.

    There's no reason to stockpile right at the end.
    Unless it was on purpose so that people are frustated and willing to pay.

    They just realized that whatever they were doing with HJC was a waste of time and money. They got triggered when QI took the novel and made all those announcements about being a family and blablabla, but they abandoned Zen as soon as they remembered they wouldn't get any money out of it :blobReach:

    It shouldn't have been stockpiled as it was a bunch of translating groups on WW pitching in for that final push. Not sure why they went quiet though. I mean if someone wasn't able to put their chapters through, another group could have taken over to try and cover that gap within 2 days.....
    Honestly, the rest of the translations are still ongoing so it means it's not just HJC issue. I mean if they can come out with an announcement in response, then it would be less of an issue....

    I honestly don't understand it. How many translators they had helping out? About four, excluding Zen? And ALL of then just went nope this isn't a thing we're doing anymore?

    Yeaaaaah sounds like a behind-the-scenes falling out to me.
