Black Tech Internet Cafe System Chapter 218
After the first round of the competition, there was one week until the second round began.
During this time, all of the top 16 players and top 16 teams got busy with their preparations. In the meantime, Fang Qi did his own preparations.
The System had especially given him three days to practice in the Game Cultivation Room, so he could go out and establish branches. After all, the world outside wasn't as friendly as Jiuhua.
Fang Qi spent this period on practice in the Game Cultivation Room.
The cultivation strength he gained in the Game Cultivation Room didn't increase as fast as his proficiency in combat techniques, but his cultivation strength increase was still substantial due to the time ratio. After a few days, Fang Qi's cultivation strength had reached the Ancestral Warrior Realm!
Right now, Fang Qi's status was as followed.
[Cultivation Strength: Level 2 Ancestral Warrior Realm
Combat Techniques: Sword Control Technique (Master - 36.5%); Innumerable Sword Scroll (Proficient - 88.3%); Sword Flight (Proficient - 36.56%); Holy shock (Skilled - 78.6%, equivalent to level 7); Lightning Resist (Proficient - 80%, equivalent to level 14); Close-Range Combat Skill (Grandmaster)
Enhancement: T-Virus (Enhance to physical strength, speed, reflexes, and mental strength, etc.)]
Together with the other skills he had practiced himself, such as Blessed Hammer, they formed Fang Qi's current combat system.
Despite the excellent progress that the Game Cultivation Room offered, it wasn't a comfortable place for Fang Qi. In the room, whenever he wasn't careful, he would be killed by his game characters. Although he had stronger mental strength compared to the others due to the enhancement of T-Virus, the first year that he spent in the Game Cultivation Room left him with psychological trauma.
After all, he had been killed many times each day. Whenever he couldn't defeat his opponent, he would be killed!
If not for Silent Hill 2, which increased his mental strength and removed his internal evils, Fang Qi's mind would be greatly distorted if he didn't collapse already.
Fortunately, the situation was better in his second year in the Game Cultivation Room since he got used to it.
In other words, he had used almost half of the three-day cultivation time that the System rewarded to him.
He had practiced Li Xiaoyao's Innumerable Sword Scroll to the proficient level, and now he was charging at the master level!
Before him, Li Xiaoyao leaped into the sky while many swords with flashing spiritual lights on them shot up with him! At his control, the swords changed positions continuously in an exquisite pattern!
Slowly, the swords gathered in a circle and formed a Tai Chi pattern in the sky!
Seeing the swords forming a pattern, Fang Qi's heart fell with a bad feeling!
Then, he remembered the things that he had learned in the Shu Mountain Faction after he finished the game.
Since the System's version of the game was different from the original version, the players could stay in the game after clearing the stage. For example, Fang Qi took the quest of becoming the Faction Master of the Shu Mountain Faction as Li Xiaoyao. He had even stayed in Shu Mountain to study the sword arrays of the faction.
36 Tiangang Sword Array?! Fang Qi's face turned dark when he saw that it was something that he had just learned. Manipulate the swords into an array?! Is this the advanced use of the Innumerable Sword Scroll?!
When the sword array pushed down, it circled swiftly in the pattern, and each route and arc that the swords took looked mysterious and profound!
Fang Qi's face fell, knowing that he absolutely couldn't block such an array!
Once he was trapped by the array, he would certainly die!
Immediately, he flew up on the sword, and many lights released from his body and shot toward the sword array behind him!
It must be noted that in the Game Cultivation Room, even though Fang Qi's warrior qi was only at the Ancestral Warrior Realm in strength, he had an unlimited supply!
That was why he could progress so fast in the Game Cultivation Room. In the room, he could use his full force at anytime. Then, all of his warrior qi would be replenished fully in the next moment!
In contrast, people cultivating in the outside world must spend quite a while to recover the consumed warrior qi or spiritual essence before they could continue practicing.
At this moment, Fang Qi used almost 120% of his strength, and the Innumerable Sword Scroll created a giant cloud of swords in the sky!
Lightning flashed above the cloud of swords, and these swords crashed toward the sword array like a huge storm!
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Radiant lightning energy surged around the swords, but the spiritual swords that Fang Qi created were instantly shattered when they got close to the center of the sword array.
With Sword Flight, Fang Qi kept launching the Innumerable Sword Scroll, but the sword array was still moving closer to him gradually!
Half an hour later, blood splashed!
In the respawn spot, Fang Qi looked pale while he saw the spiritual sword array in the Tai Chi pattern flying this way swiftly from the distant sky!
F*ck! Fang Qi wiped cold sweat off his forehead and felt lucky that Li Xiaoyao's 36 Tiangang Sword Array was only at the beginner's stage. Otherwise, Fang Qi could just stand here and wait to be killed repeatedly.
"Hu..." Coming out of the cultivation room, Fang Qi felt he was going to get new psychological trauma with this kind of cultivation intensity.
Fortunately, he would get some rest in these two days while acting as the referee for the competition.
More people gathered in the shop; they were excited about the matches between civilians, aristocrats, and major factions! Not only players, but the people who couldn't afford to play the games came to the shop to watch the competition!
After all, Mr. Fang didn't set the rule that people without money couldn't enter the shop. In fact, when the shop livestreamed Jade Dynasty and Wind and Cloud each week, some ordinary people living nearby would come and watch.
Of course, as mentioned before, the civilians in Jiuhua City were not people living in poverty.
Fatty Wang was a civilian, a comparatively rich one, and so was Guo Xiong. The latter had reached the Ancestral Warrior Realm and was thus a successful civilian; it was only a matter of time and personal choice for him to become one of the aristocrats.
The first event today was the battles between the top 16 in the Diablo competition.
This time, the schedule wasn't arranged randomly. Instead, the No. 1 player would battle the No. 16 player, and the No. 2 player would battle the No. 15 player, so on and so forth.
At this moment, Xiao Yulv was talking eloquently while sitting on the couch. "According to this schedule, there will be a few surprises. The results of the previous matches have shown the strength of each player, and they all got used to the environment and rules of the competition. Look, Castellan An won the first match as expected, and so did Senior Nalan in the second match. The third match..."
Nalan Mingxue stared at Lan Yan on the screen quietly.
In the match, Lan Yan's opponent was An Cheng, one of the top sorcerers. Her odds of winning were very slim.
Listen carefully, this is the only way to deal with a sorcerer like An Cheng. Lan Yan felt calm while she remembered the tactic that Nalan Mingxie had taught her before the competition.
On the screen, the gloomy light suddenly turned darker.
The surrounding space turned dark completely!
"What's happening?" Xiao Yulv stood up from his seat.
"What's happening?" Mu Donglai who wasn't familiar with the skills in Diablo asked in bafflement.
"This seems to be a skill of the assassin!"
