    Wait, which part of privileges comes as a total surprise ?

    Might be a bit more work, but some sites should still be able to deliver the chapters.

    I don't think their greed has changed, they're just pushing to see how far they can go before people raise too much of a fuss.

    With everything behind a paywall most people would thank them for bringing back adwalls.

    You should already know that their chapters usually require SS (using real money) to read, but this time there's a privilege to "read ahead" by paying with more SS.

    Basically you pay twice for one chapter they make.

    Mom! Get the credit card!

    Edit : To add for newcomers since this post is getting likes.
    They are making a paid 'privilege' system where you unlock advanced chapters in one go. It's nice and all till the payers realize they need to pay again to read the actual chapters. All the info hidden away in little T&C god knows where.

    All in all, it's just a 'privilege' to pay ahead really. You gotta pay to pay!

    I'm reading normally though? A new chapter comes in, I use SS and read it. Where was the change? Which novels? I just read today's Ancient Godly Monarch chapter.

    I love WebNovel's response in this.

    Transcending the Nine Heavens for example was free then all of a sudden all chapters became pay with SS then at the end there are privileges :/

    I hate to be the voice of reason here but what's the difference between this and patreon only chapters or wuxiaworld's vip? It's the exact same locked "advanced" chapters unless you pay model. It's already been around for a while now with barely a reaction, but when webnovel finally does it, oooooohhhh boy get the pitchforks!

    So? From what I've seen, daily updates will still happen, normally? So people who read advance chapters will be no different than people who paid for patreon advance chapters no? In fact, from what I saw, only people who actually buy the "privilege" will be screwed since they pay for the privilege and still need to pay per chapter. A normal user will be completely unaffected.

    I was going to say the same thing but I don't use webnovel anymore since I lost interest plus those that don't need SS has other websites like RR or scribblehub accounts so who knows how different it is.
