LMS V39C7 + Poll for teasers.

Hey everybody,

LMS volume 39 chapter 7 is released. You can read it here. 

I’ve also decided not to post the 6th teaser for a variety of reasons. Mainly it is because the web novel format made the chapters really short and nothing really happened in the first few chapters. I don’t feel like it gave a proper idea of the story nor did it make me want to translate more. So I’ve decided to just not post it.

Please vote in the poll below. You can choose a variety of options. Remember, I will be taking into consideration the results as well as my own personal preferences. Therefore the winner won’t necessarily be the one I translate.

I will leave the poll open for 2~3 days before making my decision. Enjoy~~

    Question Turtle. If you pick the series that already ended and finish translating it will you be willing to work on the other novels from this poll (well cause for me there are 3 interesting ones out of the 5), or would there be a new poll with some new titles?

    And finger crossed that my top pick will be chosen (not telling which ^^)

    Thanks Turtle, but there is a problem with this voting is that people might vote multiple times for the same novel, so I do not think that the results will be accurate.

        nope. i’ve double checked it. and the options are blocked by cookie and ip. there’s nothing else i can do so i dunno what you are noticing. i don’t know what u are noticing in the total votes but ppl can pick multiple options you know…
        plus it doesn’t matter because like i said, im not picking the winner. i am just using it to get an impression of what ppl thing.

        It looks like it is counted after a while, but its not. If you see the other options, you will see that they get extra votes too after a while, so what you notice increasing isn’t your “second vote” but other guys who voted in the meantime.

        I think turtle’s intention is to check if the novel she likes is atleast on the top 3 (or not being totally hated)… then she would translate it, otherwise she would go to her other options… 😄

        Actually for me its almost the worst one when it comes to how its written (short sentences, very chaotic). Maybe im to spoiled by LMS…
        On the plus note. Its note the worst teaser of the 5 (yes im talking about you Connector ^^)

        @ Frankon I cant agree more 😀 They will think you are my second account :D. My personal preference is the one about Demon entering human world and clearing dungeons. Probably becuase he does have the biggest potential, of allies, enemies, or mayb i just prefer more sci-fi based stories.

        @shambala… Hahha i wrote the long piece about why the Demon King game is bad… But forgot to copy it before clicking post comment and it timed out. So a shorter version.
        Author is unoriginal. Main protagonist is a living korean player (the author didnt even change his name…) “Bogus” (from his BW days) or “INnoVation” (the name he is using now in SC2 and was for some time considered the BEST player in the world). Author doesnt want to use name StarCraft and set his game in fantasy setting, yet all the mechanics are basically a copy of BW strategies and units which make little to no sense in a fantasy setting ^^. eg. Naked slaves block vs SCV (self repairng higher HP) block… and the Bunker rush ups Tower rush ^^, not to mention Zerglings Rush (possible 6 or 8 pool ;P). I’ll omit the large part i wrote before about the strange reaction to the slaves (which werent mindless drones), or the lack of it. He just send them to die and just decided to ask Gremory about them later. He didnt even consider the fact if anything could happen to him (super relaxed despite being in a middle of the battle). Gremory said that nothing should happen to him but never said if it was because she didnt allow it or was he INVULNERABLE?. If so why not just grab a sword, stick, rock and go masacre enemy base if they cant do anything to you ^^ POWER OVERWHELMING anyone?. Alsoif you arent new to RTS and have some knowledge about BW/SC2 you could guess player strategies a mile away. And if the author would try to come with his own strategies the people would wonder “how the hell should that even work?!?”
        The plot is also easy to figure out. We already know who will be a main antagonist. He is either already a contractor or soon will be. We know that Lee will try to climb back to the top in real world and also helm Gremory with her demon tournament. So we will be moving between real word and demon world and have battles in each of them. Its almost 100% certain some other demons would send assasins to take care of him in human world… So Gremory would move to protect him… So we will have funny demon interactions in real world.

        So basically my problem with the novel. Its highly unoriginal. The author using real people (and he makes them one dimensional characters – taking for granted thats its just like a game and not wonder much about the rest…) and real E sports teams (well Airforce Ace is defunk now but still….) the game rules are ripped from Starcraft BroodWar, the plot is easy to guess and we are only 6 chapters in.

        Heck in LMS at that point we only knew that Weed wanted to make money out of the game and nothing more. Heck we learned about his sister true nature almost near the end of the series ^^)

        The rest of the teasers ended with a lot of question marks. What wil happen next? Who will be the antagonist? And that made me more interested in them.

        I dont know if its due to the fact that Turtle just translated too much of the demon kings game to show us how the game works… But if she didnt we wouldnt know that its just reskined BW game…

        Rant mode off.

        oh and i would be positively surprised if the story would not turn out as i predicted…
        But right now its the 2nd weakest teaser on my list. The first being “Connector” cause i have no idea how Koreans Robin Hood would work taking into account Korean mentality.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who was shocked to see DKG’s popularity. Reactions to DKG seem polarized to the extremes. I thought DKG was the worst besides Connector. In perspective, I’d rather have any of the 4 (not Connector) over more ATL… that story really got tedious despite the possibilities of its interesting setting…

      And about the similarities with starcraft and things like that, if I’m going to write a book about a poker player should I change the name of the game to ponei? things like that can’t be real motives… If you don’t like the story it’s okay, but don’t say it like the ones who enjoyed are retards…

    Dungeon Hunter I like A LOT, it looks very interesting, and it doesn’t look like it wont be a repeating grind of battles, and I get the feeling the story moves fast enough.

    Connector looks ok, but I feel like its average.

    Return of the godly control is soo slow >.>

    The Demon Kings game looks cool, and a bit different from the other “game” novels, but I have yet to see the purpose of the main character besides fighting battles and winning, which alarms me a bit that maybe it will just be a case of battle after battle :/

    After reading all teasers, The Demon King’s Game(8/10) was best in my opinion. It had best potential, with strategies and war, if author doesnt fail it, its bound to be good.
    Connector(2/10) and Return of Godly Control(4/10) were just not upto the mark. Connector is simply card game and cliche so just nope. And Godly control seemed that it would get boring quickly considering author just focused on child ego and it didnt seem it had anything to carry it (felt will get repetitive real quick).
    Dungeon Hunter’s teaser didnt reach the point where I could decide to continue reading or not ie. his interaction with human world. I dont expect translator to go that far into the story for teaser but deciding point would be, will he remain one trick pony and keeps being power hungry in his closed world or will he find something to use it for except just the seat of grand duke and make things interesting.(6/10 plus minus 2 depending on character’s growth)
    Raid Breaker(5/10) also didnt reach the point where I could get where this story is heading. What skills will he get or will he choose to be a part of system or do something outside it.

      I mostly agree.
      Connector didn’t seem to have much potential.
      Godly control seemed interesting but too much like ARK and LMS with less motivation.
      Demon kings game has potential especially with the nobody uses humans line.
      Dungeon hunter was my top pick. I love the idea of seeing the bad guy running his dungeon lair.
      Raid breaker i didn’t see where it was going enough to be sure. I like the kind of pacific Rim feel it has but can’t make an opinion just yet so i’m only hopeful.

      I liked both DKG and DH, but I picked DKG cause I’m a Starcraft/Warcraft player and I can identify with the strats that he uses easier. And like someone else mentioned, DH teasers didn’t really get to the point where I can confidently say that I like it better.

        @Adyen as Starcaft/Warcraft player you should know that there is a limited number of good strategies so either the author would be inventing weird new ones that have no chance to work in real game… or he will use the strategies over and over again…
        Also the situation the author created basically makes it impossible to lose few first games in the demon world. Cause if he loses Gremory wouldnt be able to challenge other demons for a while… so its rather predictable novel..

      Personally i would have rated teasers like this:
      1. RoGC – It just gives me a good feeling.
      2. Dungeon Hunter – seems great, but author is known for random mc power ups. You can see that in teasers too. Someones heart is integrated out of blue?
      3. Raid Breaker – something that might be worth reading.
      others not even worth mentioning

        I dont read LMS anymore but i can answer that, VR, so less limitations, close to reality… that makes it more interesting
        So on DKG the battles would be reality, then less limitations, the author could expand the concepts of rts and make something interesting using the rts landscape, same as LMS doing about MMO… thats what I see, and when thinking about games, rts is much more flexible then MMO, based on what we have nowadays on gaming, so if they can do it on MMO I hope they can o rts, never understimate asians, they are an alien race a lot above us common humans (don’t know if ur asian but im not, im latin american)

    Also the Demon Kings game looks cool to people only because it was the first teaser. First come, first served they say. If people read all of then and deeply think about they would choose another one, since that one it’s just moderate. Not bad though, just not good or inovative. Unoriginal but also not to the point you would be sick at.
    And the Return of Godly Control gives the Ark feeling, you know? If it looks like a Ark, swims like a Ark and quacks like a Ark, then it probably is a Ark. It’s not good translate only one king of novel.
    About the others… i wiil not speak because it’s not worth.
    So, please, please translate Dungeon Hunter!

      Tbh, i think its a matter of prefference and not whats read first, i read return of godly control fist because i was abit late to the party, but that and connecter i like the least. top 1# is a shared between Demon Kings Game and Dungeon Hunter, with a second place of Raid Breaker.
      DKG seems intersting to me because i love what it seems to come with, a ‘small’ twist to the standard starcraft pro-scene ripoff and probably more to come (6 races?, author gotta have some weird shit up his sleeve, and the ‘saving’ of hells souls seems to also be able to come into place at some point)
      DH seems really interesting too, especially how he is going to go veer towards the humans side and invade his enemies dungeons, he will also probably find some allies that somehow discovers his reality(that he is a dungeon master/keeper), also with the dungeon core etc etc it reminds me of dungeon keeper.

      both of DH and DKG seems to involve games i really love i actually hope both gets translated.

    The dungeon hunter has far more potential, while the demon kings game will be neutral, unemotional and distanced. It’s quite literall as if someone were to narrate a game of starcraft 2.

      I totally agree I kind of want to take back my vote now. I voted for my top three choices. Demon kings game was my third, and just by synopsis I did not want to to read controller, or the MMO one. DKG was only voted for so that those two I did not read would stand a lower chance, but Dungeon Hunter was my favorite, so It sucks that my vote is now helping push DKG over it.

    To assess what to vote for one is clearly favourite as it had 6 teasers against the others with 2 or 3.
