The reset basically made him start from scratch again. With a new world that even he doesn't know about fully. Unlike before the reset where he knows everything. Now he is facing a rather unknown world.
Uhh it's pretty much a reset tbh. But the interesting thing is that there is an off chance he might meet his own offspring.
You get to meet some of the old characters but even Li Qiye admitted that he have to climb to the top again.
