They look like they intend to translate it. Just not any time soon.

Unless that list is completely pointless.
That list is pointless.
Also I heard Qi Int won't pick series already having more than 100 chapters and a group TLing it.

That was the only qidian novel I was reading... Well, besides Forty Millenniums of Cultivation which was originally on gravity and is awesome. Thanks for the heads up.

The thing is the author has a habit of making the female characters leave the MC for one reason or another and not on a positive note. If you have read chapter 9 of IM then similar incidents like the one in that chapter will keep on happening throughout the series.

If you have read his first work, Strongest Abandoned Son, then know that similar incidents like the ones that happened in its first arc will also happen in IM.
The author overdid these things in his previous work, Gate of Good Fortune, to the point that its called as Gate of Misfortune now and its ratings are incredibly bad at NU. Also both SAS and GGF had shitty endings or so I've heard.

Basically what I mean is that the author has a track record of annoying the fuck out of the readers.

some useless facts:

Qidian Authors get 50% of the foreign copyrights.

So if Wuxiaworld pays $200,000 for a novel, the author gets half and Qidian gets half.


If it costs Qidian $40 per chapter and they translate 100 novels that is about 1500 chapters, it would cost them $6 million.

^ Well firstly I am a bit doubtful about the 1500 chapters per novel. While the longest ones reach this, I don't think the average novel does. But even with this count, it would take only 4000 paying users/chapter to get back their investment, not even speaking about native English novels not costing them single cent and yet gaining additional popularity from the Chinese ones.

And even if it all goes wrong and the site fails to gain needed popularity, oh guys, it's just $6 million, not like that's gonna hurt them much and they can expect to get at least a part of that back.

Well I have to agree that this is rather good trade model, but it needs giant market to work. China is great for that and English speaking world might just make it into black numbers (considering lower popularity of Chinese works as foreign ones), but I doubt it is applicable for smaller companies or other languages.

ebook sales

ad revenue

publicity for Qidian (they are launching an IPO in the coming months)

so it's very worth it for them to expand to English even if they don't make a profit right away.

The King's Avatar

Qidian is hyping this anime on webnovel.com

https://acts.webnovel.com/2017/5840187/index.html

The King’s Avatar, written by Butterfly Blue (蝴蝶蓝), is the first E-sports novel which has been adapted for animation. It received the title for Best Work in 2013.
In the multiplayer online game Glory, Ye Xiu is regarded as a textbook and a top-tier pro-player. However, due to a myriad reasons, he is kicked from the team. After leaving the pro scene, he finds work in an Internet Cafe as a manager. When Glory launches its tenth server, he throws himself into the game once more. Possessing ten years of experience, the memories of his past, and an incomplete, self-made weapon, his return along the road to the summit begins.

Yeah, they just gave 6 keys to all account holders though. The account isn't really a necessity to read the novels but you can keep track of bookmarks easier and get to use the android app. I've been reading several novels through the app these last few days myself
