1. Kirito beat sao shouldn't he be known as a hero. I would think especially among those 6,000 freed from sao he would be recognized as hero. i would also think he would be considered legendary in the world of vrmmorp. The players of Alfheim Online should recognize his name as the one who beat sao. But i see none of this, i expected the players of sao to worship him as a god.
2. Why doesn't anyone of Alfheim question why someone who just started playing is one of the most powerful in the game and has enough money to buy a castle. Especially his cousin when they met he could barley fly

1. The only players who knew about him doing that was that final clearing team which only had 20-something players in it after 14 had already died. The majority of SAO players were level 1's skulking around the first floor.

2. ALO isn't a level based MMO like SAO was. It's based on training skills kind of like the Elder Scrolls games. And it's heavily reliant on someones real life abilities, which is why his cousin is such a good swordsman- she does Kendo on the national level.

From what I can figure from SAO, these Japanese gamers very much keep to themselves (it was even taboo to say your real name in the death game SAO) so it really wasn't anyone's business how he got his money. Leafa is a bit confused about it, but she's polite enough not to inquire too deeply. All other players don't know that Kirito is a newbie though, they likely assume that he's played for a while.

I don't know why I answered in so much detail on a thread that's going to be deleted

It was reported because there are currently several Sword Art Online & SA:Alfheim discussion threads.
These could add to those discussions :)
It's not a report that is bannable or anything, just one that keeps forums tidy.

that's because it WAS rushed. the entire Aincrad arc was rushed. they could've easily made the Aincrad arc into a 25~ episode series all by itself.

also, the Japanese government is keeping as tight a lid on the fine details of the incident as possible. they don't even have all the information of what happened in SAO themselves.

another tidbit of information left out from the LNs. Kirito told Lyfa when they first met that his account was created by a friend back when the game was first made, but he never played until that day.

If you want to continue that discussion, just do it in this thread:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-766625/sword-art-online-discussions

The anime is full of weird holes and flaws, just enjoy the ride and laugh at the ridiculous parts. That's what I do. : )
