    Name: I'm the mc, why do i suck at cultivation
    Raw Link: dunno
    NU Link: it isn't created
    Why It Should Get Picked Up:

    This was a trial read on web novel, it has upto 60 chapters released, it was released 2 weeks ago ( as i am writing this ), it has 429.5k views, it has 102 ratings, it is 4.8 stars rated, it has approximately 146 who donated actual money for this novel to be picked ( otherwise called fans on web novel ), and it is an amazing story that is on par with cultivation chat group, reverend insanity, the legendary mechanic, and the lord of the mysteries in terms of comedy, trolling, plot, mc's otherworldly handsomeness, etc.

    The basic premise of the story is that if you are handsome, talent doesn't mean crap, and since the mc is otherworldly handsome, even though he has the worst talent in history, being at the qi refiner stage ( The lowest stage for cultivators), the heavens dote on the mc sooo much that otherworldly phenomena appear when he is breaking from beginner stage to intermediate stage of qi refinner, and causes people to think that he is ascending the mortal world to the celestial world, lolz.

    Description:

    Lu Changsheng is depressed.
    In this world full of cultivators and immortals, because of his face and irresistible fine bearing as a protagonist, women fall in love with him within three seconds. Unusual heavenly phenomena occur to celebrate his breakthroughs. His literary talent can easily shock all scholars and his random citations are eulogized by the heaven and earth. Legendary beasts offer themselves as mounts, celestial treasures throw themselves into his pockets.
    However, there is one thing he does not understand.
    He's the main character, the protagonist, the MC! Why does his cultivation suck?
    Also known as "Super Ultra Ordinary and Average Eldest Senior Brother," "Why Am I Still the MC Even When I Suck at Cultivation," "My Good-looking Face But Hopeless Cultivation."

    Also, web novel didn't pick this novel, since the people on web novel like novels similar to Peerless Martial God, Chaotic Sword God, and Martial God Asura. So you can pick this novel up.

    For people worried about this being a qidian novel, and getting DMCA, well the translator of thriller paradise is still allowed to translate the novel, even though webnovel is translating the novel as well. So it goes to show that they don't care.

    I bet suck, overpowerluckiness except if there're good comedy and ambience which both hard to write. e.g I'm destined of greatness manhwa

    Although the novel is very good it's very far away from the standard of reverend insanity

    Reverend Insanity was conceptualized by the author for many years before being made into a novel. So i do understand and in fact agree with your opinion. When i compared Reverend Insanity to this novel, it was me basically wishing and hoping for this novel to continue to improve and become deserving of being compared to Reverend Insanity in the near future, pretty much my hope for this novel.

    I’ve read the first 10 chaps and it’s hilarious! It’s like Legend of Sun Knight but Xianxia.

    You're right we all hope that most of the light novels rise to the standard of RI so that we won't be bored and this certainly has much potential so it's not a bother to support it

    Try reading the book, and then tell me your thoughts. Trust me, it is a good novel and you will definitely like it.
    The reason the summary is so vague is because i don't want to spoil the book, it currently has 600+ chapters, and has a multiverse setting.

    I dislike most cultivation novels but this sounds perfect for me as sounds far more fresh than generic revenge number 456465 why do the generic ones get picked up but this gem get dumped?

    Because of new people getting introduced to novels, therefore having a lower threshold of what garbage is. Unlike experienced readers, the new readers find novelty in the trash novels, and think that it is great. Once they have read alot of books, they will know that it is trash.

    Also, alot of bots upvote trash novels as well, lol.

    we all hope so. The question is, who will?

    sometimes i even wonder what the point of threads such as novel pickup requests are, since no translator/barely any translator even bother to pay attention to it, lol
