Number of Releases a day

I have caught up with WW translations, but is it seriously one chap a day now? Will take years to finish the story at this rate <span>:open_mouth:</span>

Comments

  • as someone who's been reading novels since the days when 3 chapters a week was considered monstrous speed I find it disturbing when people complaining about one a day.......

    P.S it's about 10-12 a week not one a day 
  • Well it's meant to be 10 a week originally and an extra one from patreon bonus iirc however Rex (tl'er) sort of fell behind multiple time due to irl which makes the releases very erratic... and like the comment above said I still remember the days were people would only tl 3 or less chapters a week, but these days it's a whole different matter...
  • Sorry, i've just been so used to reading aleast 4 a day since joining (after i caught up with everything), so i was just asking if this is 1 a day? as maybe the translator (as mentioned) is have RLI to deal with etc.
  • How many word does a single chapter contains?
  • i think what sekaia meant to say was "this story is so damn good, no number of chapters a day are nearly enough"
    at least, thats what i am thinking.

    Tbh is the whole story was translated right now, i would read it all in a few days :)
  • there are only ~590 chapters translated but at least for me, if one thing is for sure its wang lin -> meng hao. with every new chapter i feel like wang lin gets more awesome and badass. meng hao just never needed to struggle and it always felt like hes some kinda prince and just needs to walk the path others paved for him. wang lin needs to be cautios, to be smart and always on the lookout cause almost every cultivator want to get the better of him. the struggle is real you know
  • I'm really liking the MC from AWE at the moment though, hes an absolute comedian :) so glad deathblade has started to retranslate that story.

    I wouldn't exactly call him a comedian, as the comedy can't run forever, honestly calling him a narcissist suits which him much better.
  • so what really happen to the translation speed?
  • i dont know it seems to really fluctuate. Some days get 2-3 chapters - some days get done for 3-4 days :(

    Really love this novel and wish we could read more each day <span>:smile:</span>  
  • this becoming worse and worse with each week

    Rex need to find help
  • I start reading machine translation again. As I have found no other interesting novel by er Gen or other writer.

    why the hate on menghao? is everything really paved for him? he had fair share of ordeal to become what he is you know. someone always bashes menghao in this forum and i find it quite biased.
  • i really do love this LN but the releases are starting to get silly now being 6 weeks + behind , I wish the tl best wishes as I understand he's had some rl stuff to deal with but i wish he could get some in to cover him as this novel will never end at this point, or at least say ..I need a few weeks off etc to deal with stuff and will be back to normally release's by this date 
  • i just noticed it's now 7 weeks behind as of the last release
  • The lack of respect he shows to the readers and more importantly his Patreon supporters is just unbelievable.

    This guy need a wake up call.

    If you go to the Patreon page you can see one patron willing to pay 150$ to get access to 15 advance chapters.

    Guess what.

    Not even 15 chapters are available only 10.

    Rex doesn't read comments or if he does he just don't care.

    Many users presented good solutions and nothing was done by him.

    Talk with RWX and find a new translator to fill the gaps. -> NO.

    Bring another editor. -> NO. 

    Reduce the amount of chapters per week. -> NO.

    Don't use bullshit excuses. -> NO.

    A lot of people say that this is just a hobby, and he is doing it for FREE. Sorry, but the moment you have a Patreon account and a donation box this is more than just a hobby. People trust you with their money and this how you pay back?

    7 weeks worth of chapter, actually let's be precise with numbers 66 chapters. 

    I just wanna see how this all gonna end.

    Lack of communication with readers, lack of respect for Patreon supporters and bullshit excuses. 3 good ingredients to achieve failure.
  • I personally don't know or care what Rex do with his free time. It's his time and he can do whatever. But at the same time, I think as reader and fan of this novel, we should ask for steady releases of the chapters and not enable him when he fails to do so. Work on this novel, or don't if you don't want to; either way don't half-ass it. Give the novel to someone else if you don't have time, and work with them when you do have time. Or, work on the novel and get out steady releases. Don't make up B.S excuses; I don't care and I bet neither do most of fans in here. And I heard all the excuses that  Rex ALWAYS says ... it is frustrating.

    all i want to say already here

    i just hope ren can try to talk to rex and hire another translator to help,

    rex clearly will never release 10 chapters/week

    7 weeks = almost 2 months


  • i used stand he's had RL problems, so np with that as a reason to why the delays etc ..but for the love of god remove the 7 weeks bs ..@rex..please remove it it's making you look bloody bad ...when you had a fair reason that everyone can relate with
  • I already jumped to the machine translation bandwagon.
    This is the only light novel that suits my taste.
    Though the translation could be confusing at time.

    @RWX ; come on 8 weeks behind is now gone past a joke, without a good statement of whats going on,
    I understand RL is important ( and I say this as I've been ill as hell for 18 mths, having to have 2 op's in that time, also to the point I had to basically close my shop and do limited IT work from home as its 2 more months before I can fully restart ),
     this is just showing no respect for the readers/people that make donations or use patron 
  • Is the five-star specialist blog chat function no longer working?

  • Renegade Immortal is an amazing novel. Probably one of the best on wuxiaworld, but that's a personal preference. Anyway, I follow it since it was started by void (many years ago...). Having more than two or three chapters a week can be actually considered as luxury (compared to the old days).
    I was really happy when rex took it over after void dropped it. Even happier after they agreed to move it to wuxiaworld as it promises a more frequent release and bigger audience.

    If a translator is officially accepted (=contract) by wuxiaworld (company)  he or she or the group gets payment for extra chapters as well as revenue from advertisement and maybe other sources like patreon. It is not just their free time anymore but also kind of an occupation/job. In return, the translator has to release a certain number of chapters.
    Now we are around 10 weeks behind which is about 100 chapters (extra chapters not even included). In my opinion it is a little too much.
    In addition, I really miss the cmmunication with the readers. At least an explanation. Just tell us, "hey I am busy, but I will catch up next week/month".
    I know people have a real life. All of us have. But if you start it, then be reliable.

    It is not meant to be a bashing. The translators do a good job, their quality is great but they are too far behind.

    What I wish and hope for is to resolve this kind of problem. My suggestion is to hire one more translator and editor and share the work.

    I think having 2 translators in one novel is a good idea .
