As things stand now, only Vol. 7 remains on the web page. The deletion process has already begun.

Then it's changed in the last few hours as I checked it before I posted that.

His dynamic with Kirito was most entertaining among Kirito's partners.

Speaking of Eugeo. Does anyone find how he was downgraded personality wise in the LN to be extremely unsatisfying?
He was not in the healthiest of mind state back in the web version, but he certainly is far more determined there.

The guy who stupidly tried to do everything himself in ALO and had a nervous breakdown in GGO?

People usually ignore that, and only look at how, in the end he succeeds regardless. (I'm not sure which stories DON'T do this, but I guess people complain because of how some parts just make a point about how badass Kirito can be)

There are the Haruhi Suzumiya and Spice & Wolf light novels that were licensed by Yen Press years ago and they intend to release them until the last volume, there is not a sign they might be dropping them, so it would be safe to assume they might not drop SAO.

People just usually look at the negatives so they can look like they are really better at perceiving things over others. Which is sad since one could really enjoy this series if they watch it just for fun.

To each man, his own preferences, views, and opinions, I say.

Objectively speaking, things in Kirito's favour are manner-of-factly impossible to overcome. Normally. Emphasis being on 'normal,' therein which MC is not supposed to be. And that's how Kirito smashes through all his problems, one arc after another: by relying on his abnormally strong ability to interact with the virtual world to solve both real- and virtual-world problems.

But if you have to take it at that level, then that's your choice, I say. Whether you want to make mountains out of an anime/LN series is your choice and don't expect every point to be received positively.

tl;dr just enjoy the series as it is!

I agree with you on this one. All things considered, he seemed much more willing to stand up and fight for himself with much less self-doubt and more confidence thatn LN!Eugeo.

Hope that is the case for SAO.

I was thinking, maybe Kawahara wants to redevelop Eugeo in a new way?

That's quite possibly the case, but I don't see how he can show that at the moment. Eugeo is fighting Kirito now, and given how much Kirito has speculated on Eugeo's powerlevel...Kawahra is basically playing with us. I don't know where to call their fight and whether it'll even follow the web novel at this point.

Well, it seems Dengeki has a preview for Part 1 of Chapter 12, on their site.
http://dengekibunko.dengeki.com/books/1404sao14/
It starts with some kind of prologue (going by the first line, it's about Integrety Knights), and then the chapter begins.

Chapter 12 is called "Highest Minister Administrator",
