Synopsis

Song Shuhang was suddenly added to a chat group with many seniors that suffered from chuuni disease (that was he thought). The people inside the group would call each other ‘Fellow Daoist’ and had all different kinds of titles: Palace Master, Cave Lord, True Monarch, Immortal Master, etc. And even the pet of the founder of the group that had run away from home was called ‘Monster Dog’. They would talk all day about pill refining, exploring ancient ruins, or share their experience on techniques.

However, after lurking inside the group for a while, he discovered that not all was what it seemed…


Review

'Never be normal'

Its a novel where you won't get your normal dose of wish fulfillment harem and face smacking galore. Instead we have a novel where cultivators love to play Farmville, trolling/pranking each other, taking selfies and anything that has nothing to do with cultivation. 'Journey before destination'. CCG is focusing on the adventures (or misadventures, to be precise) of the MC and his relationship with multitude characters (family, friends, enemies and bystanders) instead of the quest to be the strongest. The MC is cultivating mainly just to look cool, without the usual plots of 'a suppressed/underestimated genius of a lowest of the low family/school/sect striving to prove himself' or 'going to upper realm after conquering lower realm and start from the bottom again'. 'In culture there is no first, there is no seniority in learning'.

Cultivation level is detailed and properly structured. Each stage has specific and different requirement in order to get promoted to the next stage. Each stage also comes with distinctive changes to the body, strength and abilities, rather than just pure strength. And more importantly, a cultivator needs to master the skills and abilities before being able to use them at all. A specific attention is given on how the MC (sometimes together with the members of the chat group) is learning new skills and abilities, how to use a seemingly useless skill and ability, or having discussions on certain issues. There is no one that claims himself as omnipotent and all-knowing in the novel, even the ones that already standing in the apex of All Heavens and Myriad Realms. Learning is a continuous process, and there is always someone better. 'Practical and Realistic'.

The MC is a True Neutral. His position is carefully neutral, but he does not continually balance his morals in a Yin-Yang or fanatical fashion. He does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to Good vs. Evil or Order vs. Chaos. He thinks of good as better than evil – after all, he would rather have good neighbours and rulers than evil ones. Still, he isn't personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. The MC is concerned with his own well-being and that of the group or organization which aids him. He may behave in a good manner to those that he considers as friends and allies, but will only act maliciously against those who have tried to injure him in some way. For the rest, he doesn't care. He doesn't wish ill on those he doesn't know, but he also do not care when he hear of evil befalling them. Better for others to suffer the evil than the MC and his allies. If an ally is in need, the MC will aid him, out of genuine love or because he may be able to count on that ally a little more in the future. If someone else is in need, he will weigh the options of the potential rewards and dangers associated with the act. If an enemy is in need, he will ignore him or take advantage of his misfortune. 'The first to be enlightened is the senior'.

Seniority generally based on cultivation stage instead of age, with exceptions for acquaintances or those in the same organisation (school, sect etc.). An 800 years old Fifth Stage will address a much younger 400 years old Sixth Stage as a 'senior' without losing any face. As such, we won't get the cliché dialogs like "Junior, you dare!" or "Die, junior!" (mehhh).

'Know your enemies and know yourself, a hundred battles a hundred wins'

Underestimating the enemy is a big taboo in the novel. Doing a full background check or sending probing attacks on the target no matter how insignificant the target seems to be before personally taking any action is the norm rather than an exception. Threat level also being updated regularly as needed, especially during a battle.

Conclusion

Out of 5, i'd like to give this novel 4.7 Rate. Well, this novel is very worthed to read for ya, with it's unique story.
