Tempest Of The Stellar War Chapter 845
Translator: Abyssruler Editor: Lucas
Besides the Arbiters, students from the other zones were also shocked. This was not logical. How could a normal person’s body withstand such attacks, and still deliver such punishing counters?
Was he still human?
Ka Tao and Xue Yue were similarly shaken by such a turn of events, and it fell to Professor La Tu who had seen more in the world.
“Everybody, do note a detail. Overlord’s first cannon shot was a feint,” La Tu said. At this moment, everybody realized a problem.
The first attack by Overlord had not used Ability X at all. Olivios had used himself as bait to draw the opponents’ fire.
If he had used Ability X in his attacks, and then defended after his attacks went wide, he would have died without question.
But in truth, Olivios’ little tricks had guiled people into thinking he was giving his all, while Olivios was actually playing it cooler than anybody else.
Therefore, his plan after he landed was total defense!
After seeing Olivios’ defense after he landed, Cassia’s attack had been dodged, and as for the blindness, Olivios had shielded himself, using the details to adjust his position, and dealt with each attack individually. It looked like he had taken the brunt of it, but actually each step had bought him half a second of relief. But even so, there was still much that he had to sustain on his amazing constitution and spirit.
And this spiritual perseverance was beyond imagining.
Calm and strong. This was Arbiter’s Olivios.
Amidst the jumble of surprise, envy, and other complex emotions, some suddenly realized that there was still Marzu, who had yet to make his appearance.
Asura Battle Team really had the magic to be called the Asura. Their attacks were terrifying.
After getting over the surprise, there was an imperceptible sense of pressure.
Who could stand up against such pressure?
Arbiter had won, and collected three points. At the same time, Olivios was the match MVP.
“Now let us interview the MVP of the second match, student Olivios.” Xue Yue smiled. The beauty’s eyes were filled with respect. In military school, looks were secondary, as long as one was not as wretched as Luo Fei. The important thing was ability, that d*mned aura.
“Student Olivios, I think everyone is curious. How did you withstand the combined Ability X, and counter with such power? How did you train such a fearsome body?”
Xue Yue smilingly asked, her eyes alive with passion. That Astina girls loved wild men was well known, and the body that Olivios hid under his clothes was fairly amazing.
Olivios’ expression was very serene. Arbiters always saw victory as a foregone conclusion.
Everyone looked at Olivios, wanting to find out the secret.
Olivios did not give too much of a reaction. “Very simple. Defend from the attacks one by one.”
Xue Yue was stunned for a moment, but quickly smiled again. “Well, I guess that things went as expected. Congratulations to Arbiter Battle Team, and congratulations to student Olivios.”
The first day of competition was over. Some were happy and some were sad. But on the whole, the standard for the Greatest King competition had been established. And a sense of where one stood, and how one would do, was beginning to emerge for the Battle Teams.
“Everybody, the first day of competition is over. Tomorrow’s two matches are Wang Zheng’s Saruman Snake Battle Team against Zhen Jianhao’s Icefire Battle Team. As a member of Astina, I would like to encourage the Icefire Battle Team. Of course, Saruman Snake Battle Team, please do your best as well!” Xue Yue said. Her gaze still lingered on Olivios. It looked like this Astina babe really loved wild men.
“The second match will be Hocatolin’s Imperial Glory Battle Team against Yang Pan’s Dark Wolves Battle Team. I think everybody will be looking forward to Aslan’s performance after seeing Arbiter’s display today. Of course, Dark Wolves is a very strong Battle Team as well, and reputation is not always equal to ability. Please stay tuned!”
Ka Tao said.
As a member of the battle tactics stream, Ka Tao did not think much of those like Arbiter, who were so overpowered that they needed no tactics. In the end, Olivios’ individual ability bulldozed through. He hoped for a Battle Team which used tactics to beat a stronger opponent, but this seemed difficult. Even Aslan’s Imperial Glory Battle Team might not be able to take on the full force of Arbiter.
This country, from overall military might to individual aspects, was so strong it stood on a lonely pinnacle.
The first day’s two matches served as a good example for the next day’s competing four Battle Teams. There was much that had to be adjusted tonight.
Wang Zheng and Saruman Snake Battle Team left. Zhang Shan was feeling the pressure. Achilles was not taking part tomorrow, and Zhang Shan was still the scout. But from today’s situation, if there was a weakness in the lineup, the opponent would home in on it.
If they chose not to clash as a line… tactics were more uniform, and more easily countered. It meant that he would become the weakest link in the Saruman Snake Battle Team.
Battle Team battles did not mean that individual fights were gone. This stressed out Zhang Shan immensely. Besides, Saruman Snake Battle Team’s situation was no secret, and his own situation was equally well known. His strengths and weaknesses were clear. As for personal ability, his performance in the individual elite competition had been adequate, but that was against normal students. Each and every competitor in the Greatest King competition was top-class, and in the clash, would not face any huge problems.
D*mn, Luo Fei that cursed fatty. His performance was piling the pressure on now.
All the while, Zhang Shan’s comparison was Luo Fei. But even that wretched fatty had taken to the competition like a fish to water. There was no reason why he could not do the same, but after seeing today’s performance, and Fatty actually taking MVP, he was also shaken.
“Wang Zheng, what if tomorrow Achilles goes. Our first battle, we should play it more prudently.” Zhang Shan was a little hesitant.
Everyone was stunned. Achilles actually laughed. If there had not been a fight against Eagle, then they would put up the reserve. Achilles must have some way, but with that cover, Achilles was clear as to Wang Zheng’s plans. He had no doubts as to his own ability. They would follow the plan.
“Zhang Shan, you are a member of the Battle Team. Have confidence. Win or lose, fight on with the style of our Saruman Snake.” Achilles said.
“Tch, can’t you see I’m afraid they’ll be out for my blood.”
Zhang Shan’s warp was very strong, but if countered by the opponent, and his warp was forced out, he could not use it again within a short amount of time. This meant that he was rendered useless as a scout. On the same Wind God, Fatty Luo Fei was better.
“Zhang Shan, when did you become a coward?” Ai Xiaolu laughed. “Alright, how about I go in your place.”
“D*mn, why would brother here be a coward? I’m just thinking of the bigger picture.”
“We’ll stick to the plan. What you need is good sleep.” Wang Zheng smiled.
Wang Zheng was still rather calm. He was full of anticipation to the next day’s battle. Changes were a good thing. And as for Zhang Shan’s situation, it was indeed clear, but the key lay in how he would use his ability.
The unknown gave Wang Zheng immense excitement.
He hoped to encounter variation outside of his calculations. Only such a battle could give him experience. And from the past two battles, no one was here to show any mercy.
Astina’s Jian Zihao… Seeing Olivios’ performance, Wang Zheng was feeling it now. And before not long, he would have a showdown with Olivios. He would first use the Icefire Battle Team as his warm up.
Over at Icefire Battle Team’s side, they were similarly breaking down Saruman Snake Battle Team.
“Leader, we need to be especially careful of this Wang Zheng. He’s very strong. And that Achilles. These Solar System guys, besides having unique Ability X, are feared for their physical abilities. Although Solar System people’s constitutions are not considered strong, but they train especially hard in this aspect. In close battles, we must be especially careful.” Ling Luoyu said. She did not foresee that Wang Zheng would actually become an opponent. That guy whom she had once turned her nose up to, was now way above her.
But in her bones, a sense of superiority still filled Ling Luoyu. The better Wang Zheng’s performance, the worse it meant her judgment of people was.
“Everybody look at Lear and Lie Xin’s two high speed combination moves. Both of their Ability X have speed boosting properties, and their mecha are agile types as well. But the most important thing is the strength of their bodies which supports their movements. What Luoyu said was very logical.” Rulf said. “In truth, this Wang Zheng is quite familiar with a few of our Hail Cloud Alliance people, so we have some understanding of his ability. The explosiveness of their breathing technique is temporary, and about equivalent to the explosiveness of Ability X.”
“Keke, we brothers aren’t some little lolis on Earth. Leave it to us!”
The brothers from Astina, San Tolini and San Kara were raring to go. Their unique telepathy made them invaluable in battle.
Jian Zihao smiled. “You two cool it. Since they qualified, even if they’re in last place, it means that they have some modicum of ability. This Battle Team is a whole tier weaker than Dynasty Battle Team. Even with Wang Zheng, Achilles, and the Lear and Lie Xin combination, the other positions are about similar in strength. Therefore, we will naturally win in these two matchups. For the first round, we want a stable win!”
Icefire Battle Team cheered as one. This first win was coveted by everybody. The implications were clearly seen today. This was the time to fight for national glory, and one’s teachers and juniors were all watching on.
Over at Aslan, the members were especially civilized. Highness Huiyin would undoubtedly be cheering for them. Dark Wolves Battle Team’s intelligence compilation was exhaustive. On this point, Aslan had always been especially thorough. Although they were both strong countries, Aslan and Arbiter were completely different.
The only thing worth discussing was if Heracles should participate.
The member meeting ended, resonating with cries of Glory to Aslan.
Huiyin had finished her mission. Even as a commoner of Aslan, let alone a princess, she definitely had to support her own country’s Battle Team. But personally, she of course had to support Wang Zheng’s Battle Team.
“Brother Wang Zheng, do your best! If you win, Huiyin will sing for you.”
Wang Zheng and Zhang Shan were walking along, also discussing some of the details of the next day’s battle, when Wang Zheng received this message.
Wang Zheng smiled tolerantly. This wench, she was hard not to like.
Zhang Shan craned his head. He never stood on ceremony. The more you tried to keep things private, the more he wanted to see.
“Hehe, Wang Zheng, your lust must really be raring. To think you’d actually go after such a little loli!”
“F*ck off! You can’t grow an elephant tusk in the mouth of a dog. Keep your mind on tomorrow’s battle.”
“That’s true. In the world of Zhang Shan, I only want to pursue first place. Second place is the most frustrating among losses.”
