Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 1887
Three Teams Decided
As soon as those words were spoken, the numerous powerhouses on the scene could not help feeling stunned. The Holy Spirit Douluo’s arrangement would cut off all the four great Limit Douluos from Shrek Academy!Then, Yali’s next words shocked everyone.
Yali looked toward Qiangu Dieting and said in a deep voice, “Qiangu Dieting, I understand your thinking. If you’re still a man, do it for the Qiangu Clan. We must devote everything we have for this battle. I can guarantee you that the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy won’t be trying to take revenge against you, at least not before the end of this war. We won’t be using any hidden schemes either. The powerhouses from your Spirit Pagoda are limited in number. Would you like to join us and form another team?”
All at once, Qiangu Dieting could not help feeling stunned for a moment because he had never expected that Yali would say this.
Yali continued, “Yuanen Zhentian, Yuanen Tiandang, Tong Yu, Wu Zhangkong, A Ruheng, Lan Muzi, and I will join all of you. Adding both of you will make us a team of nine.”
Qiangu Dieting was taken aback. On the other hand, Qiangu Dongfeng’s first reaction was one of pure joy. At least five out of the seven people mentioned by Yali were of genuine Limit Douluo-rank standards. Wu Zhangkong and Lan Muzi’s abilities were equal to a Limit Douluo’s. They were much more capable than the Shrek Seven Monsters! With the seven of them in addition to the two Limit Douluos, being himself and his father, the team would have nine Limit Douluos. In fact, one could even say that they were the most formidable team and stood a higher chance of defeating the abyssal powerhouses too.
However, he immediately appeared doubtful after his momentary exuberance. He looked at Yali with a suspicious gaze. What if the seven powerhouses from Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect were to betray them on the battlefield? They might not even get the opportunity to run away.
Naturally, Yali could sense the hesitation in his eyes. She said disdainfully, “Don’t measure the stature of great men by the yardstick of small men. Do you think that everyone is like you?”
Qiangu Dongfeng’s old face blushed scarlet. He realized that he was not on his best behavior. With so many people as witnesses, the Holy Spirit Douluo had promised not to seek revenge on them in this war. It was apparent that she would not go back on her words so easily. Otherwise, she would make herself a target for all.
Qiangu Dieting said, “That is fine, thank you.” He had only said these five simple words before he tugged Qiangu Dongfeng and walked to the side. He sat cross-legged and began to restore his cultivation base.
The military powerhouses that had the authority to be here were all leaders. At the moment, they were looking at the numerous powerhouses from Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect differently.
In the three rounds of nine-on-nine matches, more than half of the candidates came from the Tang Sect! It was simply an act that defied Heaven. However, it had showcased the Tang Sect’s dauntless spirit at this crucial juncture. In comparison, not many powerhouses from the Spirit Pagoda had the courage to step forward during the earlier phase of the candidate selection.
This was the difference between these two organizations. They had just redeemed themselves after Gu Yuena’s amazing performance earlier, yet they were still savagely upstaged by the Tang Sect and Shrek Academy after all.
Even after enduring their great catastrophe, the Spirit Pagoda still could not compare to the Tang Sect’s hidden resources when it was fully displayed.
When comparing wealth, perhaps the Spirit Pagoda was genuinely the best on the continent, but they could not compare to the Tang Sect’s hidden resources. The most important of these resources was the spirit of Shrek Academy and the Tang Sect. Where the spirit was, the soul remained. No matter how badly they were hurt, as long as there was still a spark, they could regain their glory.
Meanwhile, the group from the War God Hall was done selecting their candidates as well. The nine candidates included the Skycrosser Douluo Guan Yue, the Ferocious Wolf Douluo Dong Zian, War God One Vast Sun Douluo Ao Rui, War God Two Emperor Sword Douluo Long Tianwu, War God Three Dark Emperor Douluo Luo Yuhang, War God Five Demon Guqin Douluo Mo Zihong, War God Seven Asiatic Apple Douluo Shi Mengshan, War God Eight Haughty Dragon Douluo Nan Gongyi, and War God Thirteen God Sword Douluo Su Mengjun.
Judging from her abilities, War God Thirteen God Sword Douluo Su Mengjun was not qualified enough to take part in the match. However, she shared the martial soul fusion skill with the Emperor Sword Douluo Long Tianwu known as the Double-sword Combined which would be very effective when used on the battlefield. As a result, she was given a place on the team.
Thus, the twenty-seven powerhouses divided into three teams taking part in the match from mankind’s side were selected. The two great Limit Douluos, the Amorous Douluo Zang Xin and the Heartless Douluo Cao Dezhi, representing the Tang Sect would not be taking part in this battle.
Nevertheless, the lineup from the three teams still exuded a feeling of an elite, confident army in excellent form.
Meanwhile, the powerhouses not taking part in this bet still needed to form a defensive line to prepare for any emergencies that could happen at any moment.
The Divine Brush Douluo Yu Guanzhi approached Tang Wulin, Gu Yuena, and Guan Yue. Thumping his right fist against his left breast, he said, “The survival of the Federation and mankind depends on all of you. I shall be monitoring the situation on the battlefield from the command headquarters very closely. If there are any changes, you must immediately withdraw and put some dispatch between you. We will cover you with artillery fire at once.”
Tang Wulin said, “Don’t worry, Supreme Commander. We’ll be doing our best for sure.”
Judging by the situation on the surface, Tang Wulin felt rather confident. The only part that he did fully comprehend was the Demon Empress’ escape plan.
However, the opposing team’s escape plan was no longer important in the collision between two parties. The most important step was to react accordingly to the circumstances.
In the distance, the abyssal passage had calmed down. It seemed like those abyssal levels destroyed earlier did not manage to make the entire abyss falter. The inside of the passage still appeared deep and there was no telling how many fearsome abyssal creatures were in there. However, the majority of the abyssal creatures were confined to the spaces near the passage. As it was, they showed no sign of charging outside the area. It was much better compared to the breached defensive line they were dealing with earlier.
The situation at the three great federal fleets had stabilized. Despite dealing with tremendous grief, Chen Zeyu was still performing his duties as the supreme commander of the naval fleet. He aimed their arsenal at the battlefield and observed the changes there carefully through radar and satellite surveillance. All the gun muzzles were aimed directly at the abyssal passage, ready to launch an attack at any moment.
In the sky, the soul fighter aircraft did not show any intention of leaving, as they remained in position to guard the twelve infrasonic aircraft. They were hovering quietly to keep the battlefield under the protection of the Blood God Army.
The recently recovered second defensive line was rapidly being repaired. The logistic units were sending all sorts of equipment and soul weapons to the frontline as fast as possible. The mechas from the army corps swiftly swarmed out and arranged themselves densely across the line. With the buffer from earlier, all the defensive lines were completely stabilized once more.
It seemed like the overall situation was looking good, at least when considering the situation at that moment.
Yu Guanzhi agreed to partake in this huge bet based on the entirety of the situation. Both parties would certainly suffer losses after three rounds of combat. Given the current situation, it was hard to tell who would win and who would lose. However, it was almost impossible for them to make a full retreat at that point. They could only continue to exhaust one another by causing more fatalities and casualties.
The bouts between powerhouses would give him time to make arrangements and prepare in case their armies ended up doing battle again.
The infrasonic weapons and heavy-ion weapons had proven their effectiveness on the battlefield. Given the results of the earlier experiment, the weapon layout for the second defensive line would be mainly made up of these two weapons.
As the supreme commander of three armies, Yu Guanzhi had far too many things to consider. After the final decision was made, he began to make use of the hour to speed up their arrangements. He was doing his best to make more opportunities.
One hour passed in the blink of an eye. When a ray of purple-gold light shot out of the center of the abyssal passage and slowly rose into the sky, mankind’s forces could not help feeling anxious.
The two great powerhouses, the Ghost Emperor and the Underworld Emperor, were standing behind the Demon Empress. Behind them were the two remaining heavenly kings of darkness, the Darkness Blood Demon and the Darkness Bell.
