As the saying went, the insider knew the ropes, while the outsider just came along for the ride.
Even though most mercenaries ridiculed Nancy as they saw her performance, but there were some of them who were frowning while carefully observing the girls' movements in the ring.
"What do you think?"
Sereck retracted his eyes from Nancy and turned around to look at the Old President. At this moment, the old man who was originally sitting on the chair also opened his eyes and looked at the ring with a serious expression.
"She did it on purpose." Not long after, the Old President said. "She did it on purpose."
He repeated this sentence. Hearing the Old President answer, Sereck also nodded. He turned his head, looking toward the ring. Currently, Nancy was no longer attacking, but circling around Lize. Under the spectators booing, Nancy's complexion was obviously very ugly, but it seemed like she also had no other way. Hearing the shouting around her, Nancy once again waved her lance and rushed forward. In the end, she fell to the ground for no reason again and everyone immediately burst out of laughter.
"It's her who did it."
Lize's trick was very concealed, and ordinary mercenaries wouldn't be able to find anything wrong, but Sereck, as a swordmaster, was able to perceive her subtle movements. When Nancy raised her lance, Lize lifted her right hand and quickly put it down. Just like that, Nancy suddenly lost her balance and heavily fell to the ground.
At this time, the old president suddenly spoke.
"If you're the one facing her, could you win?"
Hearing the Old President's inquiry, Sereck was silent for a moment. He carefully looked at the scene in the ring and shook his head a moment later.
"I don't know."
"You don't know?"
Hearing this answer, the Old President was surprised. He turned around to look at Sereck.
"If Lize can't keep up with my movement, then it would be my victory. But if she can, it's hard to tell."
As an experienced swordmaster, he already had a basic understanding of what Lize was doing after watching the battle for a long time. However, he also couldn't come up with a method to counterattack. Spirit power and magic were different; it was almost impossible to defend against her attack. So unless he relied on his speed to make Lize's judgment go wrong, then even Sereck wouldn't be able to do anything.
After all, this 'treating foes as friends' combat method had a stronger impact against the strong. The more powerful one's strength, the faster their speed, and the greater the disruption of the rhythm. To a powerful master, it would be better if they were stabbed directly by a knife.
That was just how Nancy felt now.
Nancy, who was being fooled by Lize, felt a little angry, but whenever she wanted to take her revenge, her body didn't seem to listen to her. She immediately fell to the ground and even almost injured her waist. Then, she tried to directly attack and pierced through Lize's Guardian Shield. However, when she did that, she suddenly felt her strength disappear for a moment and the impact from the lance almost broke her wrist.
There was a fire in Nancy's heart. She thought she was going to go up and beat her straight away, but she's unable to do it. This feeling really made her feel depressed. Not to mention, there were a lot of mercenaries who were ridiculing her. It was no wonder that they would laugh at her; she was an elite after all, but her current performance was no better than a rookie's.
Damn it. What should I do? What should I do?!
Nancy clenched her teeth and cursed. She fiercely glared at Lize. On the other hand, Lize wasn't looking at her, but toward the lines on the floor.
Looking at this scene, Rhode frowned. He turned around and looked at the others.
"Does Lize have a bad relationship with this woman?" "
As they heard Rhode's question, they were surprised. From the dialogue between Nancy and Lize, they obviously knew each other. This was the first time the Starlight mercenaries had seen Nancy, so they were not clear about the situation.
Rhode naturally also didn't know about it. However, seeing the way Lize fought her, she was using one of the meanest, most shameless, and most hated method of 'treating foes as friends'. The regular 'treating foes as friends' method was to disrupt the opponent's rhythm and use spirit power to give the killing blow. But this non-mainstream method was used without having to exert any physical strength because the damage given was almost zero. This kind of method was used to force the opponent to admit defeat. In the past, a player called 'Big Bubble Gum' particularly liked to use this method-she was the one who invented the Cleric PK method. Many people underestimated her, and in the end, she used this method to torture those people for 30 minutes to one hour to make them admit defeat themselves after experiencing a mental breakdown. Although there had been no special changes in her expression, Rhode was clear about this. He was judging her intention based on the skills she used. Lize had been using this method constantly, and it was enough to explain the situation. She didn't intend to attack the opponent directly as Marlene did. Instead, she used the most annoying, most cruel method, which took up a lot of time. This meant that there was a grudge between Lize and that woman, or else, based on Lize's character, she wouldn't do something like this.
Did that guy teach her something bad in the Mirage?
Rhode thought for a while and soon gave up that thought. The image in the Mirage had no self-awareness and no ability to speak. Even if he wanted to teach something bad, he was still unable to do so. It was just that...
Thinking until here, Rhode shrugged his shoulders. He turned his head once again to look at the ring.
Why do women make things difficult for other women?
Lize was, of course, unable to hear Rhode's thought. She carefully kept her distance from Nancy and constantly used her spirit power to interrupt Nancy's rhythm. As Rhode had guessed, she hated this woman. When she had just arrived at Deep Stone City, she had been unfamiliar with the place and the people there. When she felt at loss, Nancy appeared and pretended to introduce a mercenary group to her, but she actually meant to sell her to a merchant. At that time, that feeling really made her felt an abnormal fear. If her former leader didn't pass by and saved her, she would have become a merchant's concubine by now.
Since then, Lize had been hoping to take a revenge, but as a Cleric with no fighting ability, Lize didn't want get everyone involved just because of her personal matter. Moreover, Nancy was an important member of a mercenary group, which was why she had been patiently waiting. Whenever Nancy met her, she always ridiculed her with a mocking tone, which made her very angry. Now that Nancy was in the ring, Lize soon realized that it was a good chance to avenge her grudge.
Because of that, Lize chose to fight with this method.
In fact, it also seemed to be effective.
In the constant battle, Nancy had completely fallen under Lize's control. She was no longer the old Lize. Not only did she learn how to use the buff, now she could even use it to bind and suppress the opponent. With her new knowledge, she was able to firmly suppress Nancy below her. Though Nancy, who was waving her lance around, looked aggressive, her movements were a complete mess as she fell to the ground and lost her balance. She was yelling in anger like a crazy woman, but it wasn't like she had a lion's roar skill. So yelling around was basically useless since it wouldn't give Lize any damage.
At this moment, the other mercenaries also finally realized that something was wrong. No matter how stupid Nancy was, there was no way that she would make mistakes one after another.
She didn't come here just to be a laughingstock, right?
That was obviously impossible. Then the reason she fell into that state was because of that Cleric?
Could a Cleric even do something like that?
The mercenaries had begun to talk about it. At this time, Lize finally lifted her head and quietly looking at Nancy.
"I'll give you a chance to concede defeat, Nancy..."
"You b*tch, you want me to concede?" "
Nancy coldly snorted. She was already feeling really angry, but after hearing Lize's words, she couldn't hold it anymore.
"Tch! Who do you think you are? You're just a spoiled goods! Want me to give up? Go die first!"
Followed along with this remarks, Nancy's body suddenly emitted a light. Then, she shouted while rushing forward with her lance. The sharp tip heavily hit Lize's Guardian Shield at full speed. Accompanied by the crisp sound, the shield, which had suffered a strong attack, suddenly shattered. The huge impact made Lize slightly stagger, while Nancy clenched her lance and rushed straight forward.
Seeing this scene, a lot of people were surprised and shouted. However, Lize's expression was calm and she didn't seem to be surprised by the incoming attack. She only stretched her right hand and aimed to the front.
A dazzling light suddenly burst out.
Countless golden beams came out of her fingers and whistled forward.
