In the arena, the cheering sound was loud.
There were 2 battle ball teams fighting fiercely. What was different from the past was that one was the human team and the other was the demon team. While gradually integrating into the life of the Demon Realm, humans gradually fell in love with battle ball, a ‘new sport’ that combined individual confrontation and teamwork.
It was not only interesting and confrontational, but the most important thing was the tacit understanding, which was also very important for fighting.
Humans had not long been exposed to the battle ball, yet they had shown amazing comprehension ability in this aspect. Nonetheless, compared with the experienced demon team, there was still a big gap. In addition to humans, the human alliance on the field also comprised elf, orcs, and ground dragons. It was a veritable ‘multinational force’. Despite their best efforts, the alliance fell behind by a score of 1-6. Their opponent was just the Red Blood Team, 1 of the 2 league teams in Dark Moon Estate.
Although the score gap was large and the scene was controlled by the Red Blood Team most of the time, the human team did not give up and was still actively fighting. The human world races cheerleaders on the grandstand showed the greatest enthusiasm and encouragement for their team as if they were the leading party.
In the end, the Red Blood Team easily won 11-3. The audience did not leave the field because there was a second more exciting game. The 2 sides were Tulip Team from the Fallen Angel Capital and Essidor Team from the Bloody Empire.
These 2 battle ball matches were just the preliminaries for the battle ball in the Grand Sports Competition. The Grand Sports Competition was divided into 2 major events, team events and individual events. Team events include battle ball and virtual Abyss battle. The latter was carried out in the magic game ‘Infinite Warrior OL the Abyss Edition’, which would be broadcast live to the audience on magic television. The previous bloody battle with the Abyss had shown that unless the strength level of the peak stage was reached, the role of personal force in this kind of war was very limited. They must rely on the cooperation of the team.
The concept of ‘eSports’ had been prevalent in the Demon Realm as early as the 3 empires city alliance. This was also related to the features of the ‘Infinite Warrior OL’ itself. If any game lovers crossover here, they would surely exclaim ‘this is my ideal hometown’ because ‘playing games’ well in the Demon Realm was definitely not a waste of time, but an enviable star. Furthermore, they would be valued by the empire, be recruited into college or higher combat legions.
Neo, the new third general of the Dark Shadow Empire, was a good example of a magic game winner. In the battle of the White Sea in the human world, Neo showed a commanding ability that attracted everyone’s attention. Even George, Gerant and other famous generals as well as seniors praised his commanding ability.
As everyone knew, the catastrophe of the Abyss had not really ended. People must learn to overcome fear, bravely face these terrifying enemies, and fight to the end. This was the biggest theme of this virtual competition, which was supported by all races.
Individual events include 3 categories: Archery, assemble puppets, and unrestricted martial fighting. There were also eSports. Taking archery as an example, it was not simply shooting or archery at the target. Within the specified time, kill or snipe the specified Abyss monsters while escaping safely.
In addition to virtual battles, assemble puppets also had real battle puppets to control; as for martial fighting, it was always the most attractive event. Different from the past, this time it was divided into 2 groups: Super-level and normal strength. The 2 Dragon Emperors would oversee the super-level group and accept the challenge of the final winner.
This was the first ‘Grand Sports Competition’ held by the Demon Realm, with no limit to races and no limit on the number of people (There were corresponding elimination matches in the magic game. Everyone could sign up. As long as they met the standards, they were eligible to participate in the main game). This triggered the upsurge of the entire Demon Realm. The inherent meaning was equally extraordinary – All races unite and become stronger in the process of training to fight against the common enemy.
In fact, many people, especially the high-level powerhouses, were very clear that strengthening the commoners was only the foundation to enhance survivability when fighting the Abyss army. What really determined the outcome of the entire war was the fight between the super-level.
In the previous battle with the Abyss, the coalition army’s Pseudo-God peak stage suffered heavy losses. The 3 archangels, the strongest in the human world, all fell. Raguel died in the hands of Sosbach, and Satan’s strength was greatly damaged.
Although 2 of the 3 rulers of Abyss had been annihilated, the will of ‘fear’ and ‘despair’ had not really disappeared. As long as time passed, a new ruler would reappear. Taking a step back, even if there was only Quilliana left, the Demon Realm couldn’t resist her. If Quilliana wasn’t still healing from the inner injury due to the battle of the Star Fortress, perhaps it would be another ending.
Currently, Chen Rui, Zola, and Python were the only ones who could resist the Abyss Rulers head-on.
Python was a veteran powerhouse of the same era as the 3 archangels and Satan. She had experienced 2 battles of the gods, so her strength was beyond doubt; Zola inherited the Godhood fragments of the Elemental Goddess and was the Main Elemental Messenger of the elemental world. She had a bright future. However, everyone knew that Chen Rui was the greatest hope.
The vast galaxy shone brightly.
Chen Rui was quietly looking at the galaxy in front of him, and images appeared in his pupils. These images included his real experience of fighting the 3 Abyss rulers before as well as deduction of the hypothetical battle in his consciousness.
In the hypothetical battle in his consciousness, his opponent was the strongest Quilliana. During this time, he was in the closed training ground almost day and night, and his strength had improved a lot compared to the Abyss battle. He was going all out by using the strongest method (‘Burning Galaxy’ for short) to fully fuse with [All Star Gods View] at the cost of burning his life, but at most, he could only narrowly beat Quilliana’s first transformation. Once she used the second transformation, he would surely be the one who was defeated in the end.
Chen Rui felt that the current strength had reached the bottleneck, and the fusion of [All Star Gods View] by burning his life was already the strongest state. Even a small step forward was extremely difficult. What’s more, he didn’t know whether Quilliana had other trump cards.
Is it really necessary to use the supreme key?
He now understood that the purpose of the supreme key was to summon the power of the sealed ‘Supreme Being’. The appearance of this power could destroy the Gods, and it was very likely to destroy everything and even bring unpredictable terrifying consequences. That was why Lucifer said so. Michael also said that if the supreme key was not used, there was still a glimmer of hope. If it was used, even hope was gone.
That being the case, what was the point of Lucifer giving him the supreme key? Wouldn’t it be more effective to disassemble it into the 7 artifacts to increase the actual combat power?
However, Chen Rui also understood that no matter how strong the 7 artifacts were, they were just external objects. When he just lost the 7 artifacts, he really felt very uncomfortable, but at the same time he was aware in his mind – He used to rely too much on these equipment. Once lost, not only his strength, but also his self-confidence in the battle was somewhat lacking.
Only the power that belongs to me is the most real and reliable existence.
It was precisely because of overcoming this discomfort that he was able to take another leap in strength in such a short period of time, from being no match for the 3 Abyss Ruler to now being able to contend head-on with Quilliana.
But it was just barely able to compete, unable to truly ‘transcend’.
Michael, Python, and Satan all said that only ‘transcend’ was the only way to defeat the Abyss. Chen Rui wasn’t sure what this ‘transcend’ really meant, but he couldn’t do even a simple ‘defeat’ right now.
Seeing that ‘he’ was about to be completely destroyed by ‘Quilliana’, Chen Rui stopped the deduction of this consciousness war. Because he had to fight against Quilliana with all his strength, he activated the power of ‘Burning Galaxy’. Even if it was a deduction, it still consumed a considerable amount of vitality.
Chen Rui’s current vitality was less than 1/5 left. With his level of strength and the life shared by Paglio back then, under normal circumstances, it would be close to infinity. One could imagine the intensity of training and deduction.
The life burning was not simply for the improvement of power, but for infinitely approaching the ultimate level. If he could touch the edge of that power, he might be able to truly ‘transcend’.
Chen Rui took a short rest, left the training ground, and returned to the Galaxy Divinity Temple, just in time to see Veronica talking with Avril. Seeing him coming, Avril, who was still talking initially, immediately became shy and bowed to him from afar.
Knowing the character of the little girl, Chen Rui didn’t mind it. He patted her head. Avril didn’t dodge, but she seemed a little nervous. After saying she wanted to check the temple, she disappeared in front of the Tower of Faith.
“You won’t let go of even such a small girl?” Veronica said with a smile.
“You overestimate me.” Chen Rui shrugged and stepped forward to hold Veronica’s hand, “As a victim who was coveted by a female teacher since young in college, I strongly protest that you put your hobby on me. “
Veronica gave him a glare, “In the end, the female teacher was kidnapped by the boy.”
“This is 1 of the few achievements I’m proud of.” Chen Rui smiled and kissed her face, “It is also 1 of the most thankful things.”
“Me too.” Veronica showed a gentle expression, and she suddenly asked, “Python, what are you going to do with her?”
“Her?” Chen Rui was taken aback, “What can I do?”
“She followed you through life and death, and even fought for you at the cost of her life. Although she didn’t come here many times before, I could feel her loneliness. I heard Yini say a while ago that Python got Gabriel’s power, and now her physique has changed. Although it is not a complete light element body, it is not a dark element physique or the lamp spirits body. At that time, I was thinking, maybe, Python can make Duoduo and Doudou have more brothers or sisters .”
Chen Rui smiled wryly, “I really haven’t thought about this.”
“Then your feeling toward Python…” Before Veronica finished speaking, she was taken aback for a moment. When she turned around, she saw Python’s figure appearing behind her.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t intend to listen to you…” Python’s face remained calm, but her eyes were a little dodging, but she quickly regained her solemnity and said to Chen Rui, “Something big happened! Go outside and have a look!”
Chen Rui seldom saw such a dignified Python, and he knew that it must be a big deal, so he quickly exited the Galaxy Divinity Temple, returned to the residence of the Dark Moon consciously, walked out of the house, and saw Zola, Python, Pagris, Auglas and others gathered in the yard. Everyone had only 1 movement, looking up at the sky.
Seeing that the sky was covered with gloomy clouds, Chen Rui instinctively felt that the gloomy clouds were not simple, exuding the most origin powerbreath. Just looking at it, it was like a heavy mountain, depressing everyone’s mind. The cloud stretched as far as the eyes could see, almost covering the entire sky of the Demon Realm.
“Daddy, where are the moons?” Duoduo looked at the cloud curiously and asked.
“I don’t know.” Chen Rui shook his head, but he had a premonition in his mind that the 2 moons shrouded in clouds might never appear.
TL: So soon? Did Python find a way to breach the seal?
