Publisher's Summary

Dan’s first tournament may have ended, but life goes on. His luck is still with him in his regular life as well, and it seems to be endless. However, he is surrounded by very smart people, and surely one of them is going to start doubting his talents, at least a bit?

Especially now, with a new game about to start. The latest foes are even more dangerous than the last and the rules are still unfamiliar to him. Dan wonders how reasonable the rules are in the first place. Is it really possible to take a competition that lasts a couple of hours at most seriously? A competition in which you are supposed to work together with simple monsters in order to destroy the enemy base?

And so, the story of an ordinary Russian guy who suddenly found himself in the future continues, and another battle between his luck and the rest of the world is about to start. Who will come out on top?

Winning By Accident: League of Legends Fan-Fiction

You know that "main character is a undeservingly self-confident ****-up, very clumsy, couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag but will land a glancing blow and shout 'Hell yeah!' as if they just knocked out Mike Tyson" trope? Where whatever mistakes they make (and still somehow win by accident - literally every time in every situation) everyone around them gasps and over-thinks it into oblivion to conclude that they're a genius and was playing "a hundred moves ahead"in 4D chess when the guy actually didn't even know the rules, and is a complete idiot who literally lucked/ciocidenced his way to victory at every turn?

Basically that. For the entire series so far. Set in a Leage of Legends Fan Fiction. If you're thinking 'Wow, that sounds like it would get old very quickly,' you would be 100% correct. It does. The narrators are fantastic, however. They did the best anyone could expect of them to make the 'plot' and 'story' entertaining. They would have done McGuyver proud in that regard... but the story is still not good. At least the first book's game plot was decent (aka not based on League of Legends, and somewhat more original), but after Trudging my way through this second volume, I won't be seeking new books in this series in the future. Will definitely check the Narrators' future projects out though.

Book 1 worked as an MMO/RTS. MOBA though? Really?

So the first book was decent. Not great, just decent. It was amusing with the whole, "I'm doing everything horribly but it's working out due to luck and everyone thinks I'm a genius and I don't realize it" thing in book 1. If you don't take it seriously, it made for a decent romp.

However, book 2 just doesn't work. It's a MOBA (League of Legends/DotA) setting. It just doesn't work. It's terrible. Nothing makes sense.

Here is a summary of this entire book. If you think it sounds fun, then buy it. If you don't, I promise you will hate it.

A person plays League of Legends for the first time in their life against professional players. He walks around aimlessly in the jungle with no idea what to do. The enemy team comes and kills him. As a result, his teammate is able to take a tower. Everyone loses their mind at what a genius the MC is for dying in the jungle. The game ends for no reason. The MC is treated like a king.

It's that bad. That is the book. Over and over and over. If you're reading this, you likely enjoyed the first one. So did I. But this is not salvageable at all.
