Chapter 666: Brother Lin Has No Mercy but Many Cannons!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Standing on the 46th checkpoint branch of the Stairway Tree, Lin Huang and the man with piercings stood to face each other. Both of them were standing about 30 meters away from each other while the rest of the people, including the three challengers stood aside.
In an area that was thousands of meters in circumference, only Lin Huang, the man with piercings, and Wang Zhong who was the judge stood there.
"Are you ready?" Wang Zhong frowned and asked Lin Huang after the man with piercings took out two one-handed axes while he did nothing.
"Please wait a moment." After uttering those words, Lin Huang gazed upon the man with piercings, the three other challengers, and the rest of the people. He grinned. "Aren't you guys curious about what's my trump card is? I'll reveal it now..."
As he said that, a black door that was about three meters high with intricate golden patterns carved into it gradually appeared before Lin Huang. As if controlled by Telekinesis, something appeared and lingered in mid-air, and the muzzle of the cannon pointed directly at the man with piercings.
Most of the people could recognize the item at first glance.
"I-is that a God Crasher?!"
"How could Lin Xie get a God Crasher? That's a demigod-level item!"
"I think Zhou Huai is in trouble. He'll definitely be sent back to the first checkpoint if he's attacked by the God Crasher."
"It's uncertain. Though the God Crasher is powerful, nobody knows if he can even hit his target."
Zhou Huai was the punk's real name. Since he dressed in a slovenly manner, the people called him a punk. Then, as his nickname spread beyond the Divine Alliance, everybody thought it matched him well so people began addressing him this way. Only a few of them would call his by his real name.
Seeing Lin Huang take out the God Crasher, Zhou Huai's expression changed. Soon, a sinister laugh was heard as he said to Lin Huang, "I thought you'd have something incredible. It's just a God Crasher. You're doomed if your first hit misses your target!"
"Now, whoever told you that I only have one?" Lin Huang smirked as he took out taking out his second God Crasher.
"Two God Crashers..." Zhou Huai's face turned serious.
"Nobody knows who the winner is now," many of them who were watching the live video said.
However, after taking out the second God Crasher, he still did not signal Wang Zhong that he was ready. Instead, he sniggered and took out a third God Crasher...
Seeing the appearance of the third God Crasher, Zhou Huai's face turned grave.
The crowd who were watching the livestream no longer had faith in him. If the three God Crashers failed to hit Zhou Huai even once, Lin Xie would be fated to lose the fight.
As the judge, Wang Zhong seemed to be quite relaxed.
Lin Huang smiled as he looked at Zhou Huai and teased, "You can still give up now."
"Even if you have three God Crashers, it doesn't mean you'll win the fight!" Zhuo Huai was being stubborn.
"Is that so?" Lin Huang frowned. "What if I have a fourth one?"
After saying that, another God Crasher appeared in front of Lin Huang.
"Damn, four God Crashers! Lin Xie must be the Union Government Armed Forces leader's son!"
Zhou Huai's lips were twitching. He hated himself for being stubborn. Otherwise, Lin Xie might not have taken out the fourth God Crasher.
"It seems like four God Crashers are still not enough for you..." Naturally, Lin Huang knew that Zhou Huai was dying inside but he still continued piling the stress on him. "What if I have... Five God Crashers?"
The crowd no longer knew what to say. Was he trying to show off his wealth or his background?
"If five isn't enough... I still have a sixth one!" Just as he said that, he took out his final God Crasher. "I think six should be enough since you're just immortal-level rank-6. If you were someone at immortal-level rank-9, I don't mind taking out another three God Crashers."
Seeing Lin Huang continuously take out six God Crashers, the screens showing the livestream was about to explode.
"Brother Lin has no mercy but many cannons!"
"It's a group of idiots! They actually thought that Lin Xie was weak but he's actually the king of cannons. He'll shoot you in the face!"
"I'd like to bet five credit points! The head of the second artillery corps must be the one backing him!"
At the 63rd checkpoint of the Stairway Tree, a few of the seniors were paying attention to the fight as well.
Since it was a battle between the Heaven Alliance and Divine Alliance that even involved Lin Xie who was previously the focus of the entire Genius Union, they were curious about his performance.
"He's doing pretty well. Looks like me when I was younger." Seeing Lin Huang take out six God Crashers, Chan Dou gave him a thumbs up in front of the screen.
Zhu Hong, Hong Meng's chief paid close attention to the battle as well. She fixed her gaze on Lin Huang as if something had dawned on her. "Too bad I won't be able to witness his true abilities... I somehow feel that he's intentionally using the God Crashers to hide his true abilities?"
Zhong Liyan, the Divine Alliance's chief's face turned grave as he stared at the video. He thought that they would definitely win the battle and finally show off to the Heaven Alliance. However, after seeing the six God Crashers, he knew that the situation had changed. Instead, it was as if he was sending his face out for others to slap.
In the live video, six God Crashers appeared before Lin Huang, and they were arranged in a circle measuring about one meter. The black cannon muzzles all took aim at Zhou Huai who had now already lost his fighting spirit.
"I'm ready." Lin Huang nodded his head at Wang Zhong. He then looked at Zhou Huai and said, "Before it begins, you still have time to give up."
Zhou Huai shot Lin Huang a deadly stare and nodded his head at Wang Zhong. "Let's begin."
"Counting down. 3, 2, 1, start!"
The moment Wang Zhong's voice was heard, Zhou Huai immediately rushed toward him like a phantom.
Lin Huang remained calm. He immediately shifted the direction of one of the muzzles and soon, red flares could be seen shooting out of it, completely shrouding Zhou Huai in it.
At the next moment, the second God Crasher's muzzle behind Lin Huang suddenly shifted its aim and red flares flew past his body.
When that happened, Lin Huang frowned as he willed the third God Crasher to move to the left and shot red flares into the sky, flying at lightning speed.
As the flames flickered, a groan that lasted less than a second was heard.
"Zhou Huai is killed. You've obtained 4,135,186 points!"
The battle lasted for less than two seconds. Many of them could not even see Zhou Huai's movement at all. They could only see Lin Huang launched the three attacks before Zhou Huai lost.
Only Wang Zhong and a few of them knew what had really just happened.
Humans were not allowed to fly or teleport at the Stairway Tree, and Zhou Huai spent many of his points in exchange for the two dimensional relics he had with him. However, the relics were consumed when Lin Huang made his first two attacks. Only the third attack struck him.
Wang Zhong was puzzled that Lin Huang actually managed to sense Zhou Huai's position faster than him before accurately launching a rapid attack.
Naturally, Chan Dou and the rest noticed something strange. However, nobody had expected Lin Huang to use his territory before the battle. They only thought that Lin Huang had extraordinary sensory abilities.
Once Zhou Huai was killed in that split second, Lin Huang glanced at the remaining three challengers. He did not request to continue. Instead, he requested, "I want to take a 20 minutes break before moving on to the second battle."
Many of them were puzzled when they heard Lin Huang's request.
However, Lin Huang did not explain anything as he walked toward Wang Zhong. He then took out several molten crystals to recharge the energy used by the three God Crashers.
"Isn't it against the rules to do so?" one of the challengers asked. "If Lin Xie recharged the God Crashers after every battle, we would have no way to win the fight."
"Didn't you read the agreement for our battle to the death that you just signed? If it's a continuous fight, the person who's challenged is allowed to take a break after every fight. They're allowed to have an hour for their break at most." Lin Huang frowned. "It's not an additional rule. It exists in the Stairway Tree's basic provisions."
The challengers then immediately tapped on their letter of challenge to fact-check this information. Soon, they saw the rule that Lin Huang had just mentioned, and their face instantly turned grave.
After about 15 minutes, the three drained God Crashers were filled to the brim once more.
Lin Huang returned to the open space and gazing at the remaining three challengers who had signed the agreement before he asked, "Who's up for round two?"
