What is the point writing a Xuanhuan novel where the hero is weak and not winning the tournament and always weak among his peer. Most Xuanhuan novel, the hero if not powerful to fight cross level, they mostly unbeaten on the same level. Can you just stop writing Lindon like he some kind of Batman wannabe who always have to fight using scheme and plot instead of like a true Blackflame warrior who keep advance while just killing everybody in his path. You let blackflame as his path, but Lindon is more like a weak ants, so what is the point?
If I’m understanding your comment correctly, you want Lindon to win all the time because that’s what usually happens in the genre.
I agree, that does usually happen! But I don’t like that, and here’s why: usually in these web novels, the author pretends like the hero has been through a lot of adversity, but they haven’t. They win all the time, and they never lose, and they are always the best forever.
They never fight someone who is their equal because no one is their equal.
I don’t find that very interesting or engaging, to be honest. It’s pretty one-dimensional. I also don’t respect what the character has done if they only did it because they were the best of all time from the first chapter.
I would rather read about someone who becomes the best, not someone who is the best, so that’s where I intend to go with Cradle.
Is Lindon going to lose all the time? No, of course not! He lost here, and he’s as frustrated about it as you are.
But he’s going to buckle down and continue to push forward anyway, because that’s who he is.
