At such a special moment, Fang Linyan linked keywords such as tracking, poor technique, and surveillance to the amateur spy sent by Colonel Gundom.
So without saying anything, he lowered the hood on his head, and he disappeared into the crowd after walking a few steps quickly.
Fang Linyan didn’t forget to look back when he left, and he found that the guy had lost his whereabouts. He was standing blankly on the street and looking everywhere. He was a little scornful that Colonel Gundom had lost his mind. He even sent such a repairman to look for him. He was really desperate now.
After arriving in a safe place, Fang Linyan began to check a series of messages,
“Prompt: You successfully used 5 firearms and hit the bullseye with each firearm.”
“You finished milestone: Gun Lover.”
“You got the title: Precision Strike! After putting it on, your ranged attack accuracy correction will increase by 2 cm.”
“Eh? This title seems a bit good.” Fang Linyan’s heart moved. He immediately began to inquire. “Space, what is ranged attack accuracy correction will increase by 2 cm?”
A prompt came soon,
“The range attack accuracy correction means that it is equivalent to taking your aiming projectile point as the center of the circle, then drawing a circle with a radius of 2 cm. Once your range attack enters this circular area, it will be directly corrected. It is deemed to be a guaranteed shot.”
This explanation was very clear. Fang Linyan’s eyes suddenly shined. If he wore this title, his marksmanship would undoubtedly get a very obvious improvement.
He had already completed the 4 milestones at this time, so a message began to pop up under his retinas,
“You have unlocked more than 4 (including 4) milestones in this world!!”
“You got an extra reward: A Peculiar Clue.”
“Prompt: This reward can only be received after the joint trial enters the third phase.”
Seeing this prompt, Fang Linyan was not angry but rejoiced. He became more curious. The Space restricted him to receive the reward at this time, then it could only explain 1 thing: this reward was actually very powerful. After receiving it, it might affect the current balance which was of course what he wanted.
At this time, he was a little thirsty, so he came to the stall next to him and bought a cup of sweet tea. This tea was made from dried date palms and cactus fruits. It was green in color. Although it looked unlucky, it tasted pretty good.
It was just that the locals seemed to be very fond of sweets. The boss poured him tea according to the normal sweetness. Fang Linyan really couldn’t take such sweetness. He added 2 cups of clean water to get over the sweetness, feeling that the faint sweetness was the taste he liked.
When Fang Linyan was resting, he actually realized that there was another message prompt on his retinas. When he opened it, he was shocked. This time it was a message to everyone,
“Joint trial, 8 hours have passed since the second phase.”
“Next, a safe area will be marked for all contestants who have not joined a temporary team. The safe area is located in the central square and will be marked with a light circle that ordinary people cannot see.”
“All contestants in the safe zone are in a protected state, and they cannot attack or be attacked by other contestants. The protected state will continue until the contestant leaves the light circle for half an hour. The safe zone will disappear when the second phase of the joint trial ends.”
“When in the safe zone, a luminous mark will appear on the chest of the contestant who has not joined a temporary team. This mark can only be seen by the remaining contestants who have not joined a temporary team. It will disappear after joining a temporary team or leaving the light circle.”
“Warning: If after the second phase of the joint trial, the contestant still has not joined any temporary team, then the luminous mark on the contestant’s chest will be permanently retained and will be seen by all contestants.”
“Explanation: Only contestants who have not joined a temporary team can receive the above information.”
After seeing this information, Fang Linyan understood it after a little pondering. Judging from the previous completion of the main mission: the Symbol of Steel Fist, the whole situation was about to be completely dominated by the teams led by the insiders.
Obviously, if a war starts at this time, the contestants on the side of the temporary team would easily kill the remaining contestants who fight for themselves only. But it was only the second phase, this was clearly a sign of imbalance.
More importantly, this imbalance was not an imbalance in the true sense.
Because it was caused by the emergence of a few insiders, and behind the few insiders, there were powerful senior contractors supporting them.
Therefore, this imbalance actually violated the original intention of the Space to select talents. In this case, the Space hosting the joint trial would naturally “find a balance”. The news released at this time and the measures taken were actually in order to reduce the inherent gap between the 2 sides. It was to keep all contestants on a relatively balanced starting line as much as possible.
Now that he understood the reasons, Fang Linyan inquired about it and walked toward the central square of Yangfan City without hesitation.
What a joke! This is a bonus provided by the Space. Although I have completed the main mission of the second phase of the joint trial, I’m still a contestant who has not joined a team. Since this is the case, I will of course take advantage of this!
Before getting close to the central square, Fang Linyan felt that the Iron Fist Brotherhood organization was still very powerful. In such a chaotic world, it was already quite good to organize the city in an orderly manner, not to mention that it could still meet the needs of the settled citizens, pre-plan the domains in the core areas, and planning a grand square. They really had a long vision.
The area of this central square was almost the size of 4 football fields. From the bird’s eye view of the square, the roads were divided in cross-shaped.
Then, on the square, there were various sculptures, gardens (although there are few ornamental plants inside), and fountains (it seemed that water has never been sprayed inside). Of course, the most eye-catching were the few tall black iron-colored statues standing on the 4 corners of the square. The shortest one was 8 meters tall; it looked majestic and lifelike. The stern and furious expressions were vividly done.
Below each statue, there were steel inscriptions inlaid on the ground introducing its biography. These statues were the core figures inside the Iron Fist Brotherhood. They once made a huge contribution to the Brotherhood, so their statues were put here to let the residents of the city pay their respects.
After Fang Linyan arrived in the square, a peculiar light circle appeared at the east corner of the square from a long distance. The edge of the light circle exuded a faint blue light, covering about a quarter of the square. In the light circle, there were decorative facilities such as artificial hill, garden, sculptures, etc. If people wanted to talk in it, there was enough private space.
Ordinary people couldn’t see the light circle, but in Fang Linyan’s eyes, this huge light circle could be seen even from a kilometer away.
He pondered for a moment, then he quickly chose a concealed position and walked into the light circle. He also pulled the hoodie jacket down.
3 seconds after entering the aperture, Fang Linyan immediately noticed that a soft light appeared on his chest, which did not look abrupt. The people around him turned a blind eye to it; they should not be able to see it.
After walking cautiously for a few steps, he found that he didn’t meet anyone with the same radiance around him, and he gradually relaxed. Not to mention that contestants couldn’t attack each other in this light circle, so he didn’t need to be so nervous at all.
After thinking of these key points, Fang Linyan was tired from walking all the way, so he sat down on the cement imitation wooden chair next to him and leaned on his back comfortably.
Only less than 2 minutes after Fang Linyan sat down, his eyes stopped on the path on the right, and a familiar figure was hurriedly walking over. Fang Linyan’s pupils shrank suddenly. He instinctively wanted to stand up and walk away.
Because he had seen this man before. He had been following Fang Linyan after he came out of the shooting range. This man with a leather cap seemed to have poor tracking skills. Fang Linyan thought that he was a spy sent by Colonel Gundom.
However, Fang Linyan knew that he was wrong at this time. This man should have nothing to do with Colonel Gundom, because… his chest was also shining with a little light. This meant that he was also a contestant.
After looking around for a while, the man wearing a leather cap saw Fang Linyan, and he immediately showed a relieved expression on his face, then he strode over and extended his hand enthusiastically from afar,
“Brother! You are really hard to find!”
Facing his enthusiasm, Fang Linyan was obviously a little uncomfortable, but he stretched out his hand and shook it.
Then the 2 talked enthusiastically——– Oh, no, it should be the man who talked most of the time, and Fang Linyan was just listening.
This man was called Yang Shan, and his friends usually made fun of his name and called him Goat (shan yang means goat in Chinese). His name was very ordinary, and his life experience was also very ordinary. It was nothing more than going to elementary school, high school, university, work, get off work, and go home. Finally, the goddess whom he liked dated him to spend Christmas around the beach. He took out the tens of thousands of dollars saved by frugality and went to Bali, Indonesia with his goddess.
As a result, the goddess always stayed a certain distance from him. Finally, the 2 of them got into a certain mood on the beach. When Goat wanted to kiss his goddess, the goddess forced a cough, saying that she was uncomfortable and wanted to go to the toilet. When Goat was upset… he saw the waves.
Like a huge water wall, a huge wave of 8 meters high rushed at him!!
That was a terrifying tsunami caused by the earthquake!
Then Goat was very unfortunately involved in the tsunami, but he was very lucky to be involved in the joint trial.
TL: Why is Goat looking for him then? Does he want to form a team with Fang Linyan?
