    hm~~ i was under the impression that patreon was allowed in his contract originally, and when they went premium they tried to change the contract... and have his remove his patreon... to which he said no.
    so they had an agreement, then tried to change said agreement and fired him when he refused the new terms... which is unethical.

    comparing this to working in a company is inaccurate. at best translators would be independent contractors. they don't pay minimum wage. they don't give healthcare. if leo profited from chapters before he sold them to QI, that wasn't a problem before they wanted to make it premium.

    Depends on the novel. SS I would re read the first 5 volumes happily. Beyond that its very a struggle and I would skip em all and likely drop it after a few new chapters lol.

    Sadly that new translator isn't as good as the old one.
    Also doesn't use the same names for stuff.
    (at least he didn't use the same names in the chapters I read)

    Sigh, cant read the novel anymore. Quality difference is to much. And even terms used being different makes it even worse. Was one of my favorite novels.

    I wonder if anybody still remembers how much the "Nameless Technique" ("Nine Volume Manual" now) improved the body per level..?

    I may be wrong, but I somehow thought it was *3 per level (*9, *27, *81, *243, *729, *2187, *6561, *19683 ????)... But that doesn't seem to fit with the (anyway unreliable) numbers of the current translator.

    But somehow the TL now counts from a base body amplification of 48, while he should have already completed ~5 levels of it.... idk what to think anymore.

    I guess it would be the best to drop it and try to finish it in ~3 years.

    (Also he somehow translated his sould amplification as 32, instead of 3200+ [in chinese it's probably written as thirty two hundred])

    I didn't even make it that far. I stopped shortly after they went to space... just got so bland for me.

    But even if i held on a new translator changing everything and making mistakes would instantly turn me off.

    Are the tl's ignoring the connection between "Blade River" and "Silver River"? Going with "Milky Way" just because it's the term used in english speaking countries is just stupid, ignorant and narrow-minded. The translation is "Silver River" and it has specific bearing in the story.This just shows a lack of comprehension of the overall story by the tl's. "Milky Way Lord" ,which I've seen before in mtl, sounds stupid, and "Milky Way Horde Leader" is a whole new level of stupid choices by the tl's. That's the mc with the extremely lame sounding name. What are they thinking?

    Is it just me or did the quality of translations go down even more? Qi really lacks quality control or they just don't care
