The mission prompt in Fang Linyan’s eyes was so ruthless!
“You are the 26th person who completed this main mission and failed to enter the racing list. Hope you will work hard next time.”
“You got: basic reward, primary healing potion. This potion can be used directly with your mind, and it can directly restore 25 HP after use, but after using it, it will take 15 minutes before you can use the same potion.”
“You can’t get the rewards of the racing list.”
“You are in the 20th-30th completion range, so you have received an additional ranking reward: 300 common points.”
Looking at these prompts, Fang Linyan was stunned!
He was not surprised to get the primary healing potion. What stunned him was the order of completing the mission. To be honest, he already felt that he completed the main mission fast enough.
However, in the end, he actually only got 26th place! He was not even on the so-called racing list. This was too incredible…
Fang Linyan took a few deep breaths to quickly cover the negative emotions in his heart. He slowly closed his eyes and pondered for a while. Then, he picked up a branch and wrote a word on the ground,
Yes, Fang Linyan admitted at this time that he totally underestimated the strength of the team.
If one person was restricted to do this main mission, Fang Linyan was confident to enter the top 3.
However, the only reasonable explanation that could push him directly to the 26th place was that the 26 people in front had used the power of the team, and then left him directly behind in terms of completion time.
Although the previous main mission repeatedly reminded him to find companions, he still habitually ignored it because Fang Linyan had a strong desire for control and a strong sense of vigilance.
Since the death of Uncle Xu, he even felt that there was no one in the world who he could trust wholeheartedly.
So the cold reality immediately taught Fang Linyan a lesson!
Immediately afterward, Fang Linyan pondered for a while and wrote another sentence,
“The insiders are… more than 1!”
Before entering this joint trial, Fang Linyan was prepared for what was about to happen, and he even took the initiative to come in.
He even thought that he was the only 1 who knew that the joint trial was about to start.
However, after he found the powerful Evil Zen at the ticket office of the dock, Fang Linyan had an ominous premonition. After he discovered that Evil Zen was escorting the person with the word “Shan” in his name to participate in the joint trial, he knew how naive he was before.
Now, Fang Linyan thought he was very good, but after being taught a lesson by this 26th place, he thoroughly felt the cruelty of joint trial.
As for the reason why he judged that there was more than 1 insider, it was also very simple.
The essence of the joint trial was to select the most excellent contestants who remained until the end.
It was not difficult to speculate that just like the NBA draft or the imperial examination, the first person to be selected must be of great benefit. Then, the insiders would not form too big a team. Otherwise, the remaining team members would also be their competitors.
Not only that, if they wanted to temporarily form a team after entering the world, they must first find out the details of the team members, and then convince them to join. They also needed to integrate the team and also built their own prestige… These things had to be completed within a limited time. If there were too many people, it was impossible to manage all of them.
Therefore, Fang Linyan speculated that if the insiders wanted to form a team, the number of team members would definitely not be too many.
If Fang Linyan were to form a team, the total number of people in the team would certainly not exceed 3! Even if the rest of the insiders were much better than him, they would definitely not exceed 6 team members!
Then, the 26 people ahead of him should belong to at least 4 different teams. The leader of each team was very likely to be an insider or even an insider supported by a contractor like “Shan”!
Because it couldn’t be ruled out that 2 insiders reach an agreement to enter a team, nor could it be ruled out that there were monsters who did not take the usual path and build a large team happily.
Therefore, Fang Linyan believed that the number of insiders should be 3 to 5; these people posed the biggest threat to him.
After clarifying these things, Fang Linyan looked at the previous system prompt and read out the true meaning from it,
“…This is space for warnings and prompts! Don’t think that you are so good by doing a lone wolf. In front of the team, your efforts are destined to be crushed!”
Fang Linyan felt it at this time. What Space wanted should be members who resembled soldiers in the army; they followed orders and had strict discipline! Although this method of team combat had stifled the rapid growth of individual elites in a sense, it was undoubtedly the most effective and rapid improvement for the overall combat power.
Fang Linyan thought on the spot for a while, then he stood up, wiped the dust on his face, put on a cloth with a hood, and planned to re-enter Yangfan City.
Of course, he was not going to complete the trade of 3 Blood Orchid leaves for “porcupine” depleted uranium armor-piercing ammunition (200 rounds), 500 grams of titanium silver powder, and ticket for 8 tons of diesel.
Because in Fang Linyan’s mind, when he successfully got jetpack and Kevlar fiber combat suits, his transaction with Colonel Gundom was officially completed.
As for the last trade, it was entirely a smokescreen released by Fang Linyan.
With this smokescreen, Colonel Gundom would look forward to the last trade, then he would let him leave safely during the first trade.
If Fang Linyan really went to the last trade stupidly, what was waiting for him was most likely not a ticket for 8 tons of diesel, “porcupine” depleted uranium armor-piercing ammunition (200 rounds), and 500 grams of titanium silver powder but a bullet in his temple!
Colonel Gundom, a ruthless and cunning guy, would turn hostile in the end. For him, if Fang Linyan had no use value, then why did he have to trade with items? What a joke!
Even Fang Linyan could imagine his mental state:
Now that the lucky kid has arrived at the maintenance base, the 3 Blood Orchid flower leaves and root are of course mine!
If I don’t take them for, is there still justice? Is there still law? How can I sleep tonight!?
Forget about honesty, if I say it, can I still face the few dogs that ate my conscience more than 50 years ago?
At this time, Fang Linyan changed his outlook and returned to Yangfan City. Of course, he wanted to hurry up and do one thing, that was, to complete another milestone.
Fang Linyan had completed 4 milestones at this time, and he had received the wearable titles: Scholar, Murderer, Black Market (one-time), Stark’s Blessing (Temporary).
Among them, the title of Scholar was obtained in the 811 World, but the remaining 3 titles were obtained in this world.
When entering the world, there was a clear message prompt.
It was said that this world was a joint trial world. In addition to obtaining the above milestones, it also had an additional hidden milestone. Once he unlocked more than 4 (including 4) milestones in this world, he would receive additional rewards.
Fang Linyan had now unlocked 3 milestones in this world. Now that there were still 30+ hours before the end of the second phase, he anxiously wanted to know what rewards he could get after getting the 4th milestone. After that, he would consider joining a team.
At this time, Fang Linyan was a little grateful that he had completed the time-limited milestone of “Time is My Friend and Money”. Otherwise, it would be a bit tricky to achieve the 4 major milestones.
On the way back to Yangfan City, the sky began to turn dark.
The vortex-like white clouds in the sky disappeared. Instead, clusters of light gray clouds spread from all directions. These dark clouds were very low from the ground; thick and obscure. Just the sight of it gave people the feeling of “black clouds crushing the city”. It looked like the entire world was going to be overwhelmed by darkness.
A few decades ago, such storm weather was very deadly. In addition to thunderstorms, strong winds, flying rocks, etc., the most terrifying thing was the surface radiation dust blown up by strong winds. Once inhaled, the minor case would be pneumoconiosis + radiation sickness; the major case would be death due to overexposure to radiation.
Unlike human fear, the rest of the creatures on the wasteland looked excited.
A large number of troll grass began to form ball-sized grass balls, running wildly on the desolate desert. The fierce wind could provide sufficient power to take them far away, re-bury their own seeds, and multiply and grow.
The desert guinea pig also began to emerge, quickly digging a channel to the depths of its cave, so that rainwater could be poured into the puddle more conveniently. After all, in the next few months, it would rely on puddle’s water to survive on this arid and barren land.
The leaves of somu grass had also begun to change from a rolled state to an unfolded state in order to absorb more water as much as possible.
Seeing this scene, Fang Linyan quickened his pace and entered Yangfan City when the storm was about to fall.
TL: Just change his clothes? Can he not be discovered by Colonel Gundom?
