Pounded hard by the apocalypse the hero from the human side evolves but so does the game that changed the face of the earth forever. John does not face a single villain throughout; there are demons fresh from the dungeons, aliens with unknown agendas and humans who just don’t like John. Tao Wong still not working on the character’s maturity in the main characters and from now on the fans should not expect a different man emerging in John or his friends. The troop fighting from the human side is not like the group of gladiators that have bravery and chivalry in them.
The troop wins the fights because of cleverness and then they have been lucky but not anymore because they have finally been noticed by the enemy. Danger appearing from all sides, the hero might not be able to save his friends and the people of the earth at the same time. In narration Nick Podehl still holds supreme, parts like The Cost of Survival: A LitRPG Apocalypse and Redeemer of the Dead: A LitRPG Apocalypse got most of their success because of the narration. Otherwise the length was the matter for some but the lovely narration played the real trick and the series never lost the interest of the listeners.
Nick has blended the narration with the development of the scenes and although no variation is practiced but the interest ever departs from any of the parts. Up till now the system is winning and all the human gang is doing is trying to survive and save as more as they can. Thus the real battle is still pending and is not expected in the next two to three parts either.
