Saying so, Wang Zheng leaned on the tree and shut his eyes. He widened his perimeter. They had all retreated. Of course, he did not think that these people would just vanish like that, just that they were changing tactics.
No, this was business. Even though Laurel had exerted her influence, he still had to hold leadership. Otherwise, everything that happened before would slip away. And now Yan Xiaosu understood the meaning of compromising.
Aslan’s Lin Feng, Soulless’ Aragorn, Atlantis’ Dina Atlas and Maya’s Matt Locatelli. These four all held skills not inferior to his, and not to mention their teams’ capabilities. Wang Zheng could feel it. If there were no attacks from other factors, Wang Zheng believed that he himself would be victorious. He had high confidence in that at the very least. But this was SG, where there were too many external factors. If he wanted to triumph over them, he would need to become stronger himself, just a bit more!
The Phantom King from the Atlantis had only that few maneuvers. To remain steadfast in the face of change. As long as the Arbiters were able to seize an opportunity, it would be a fight to the death.
Wang Zheng had already returned to his team and training. He had used the space box before, but that was during the testing phase. And now it had been refined.
Atlanteans were not as passionate as humans about marital affairs. Much was decided by their god, and they believed in fate. But for the country, Atlanteans did not mind marriage, especially a perfect being like Her Highness Aina. Even the Atlantean nobility accorded them respect. After all, Her Highness was chosen by the gods.
“Wang Zheng has said so as well. Don’t get ahead of yourselves. If there is danger, surrender. The mountain is green, and firewood aplenty,” Achilles quoted. Some things still had to be said. They really had to keep their heads down now. They would receive no mercy.
Lear was definitely heading into Ai Zhengyang’s Zero Degrees World. Either they freeze together or they finish their opponent.
Everyone held a breath when using continuous attacks. This breath could be used up. If it was mecha, the gap was very small, because of the delay in mecha movement. To exploit this gap was very difficult. But this was different for close combat. Fists connected instantly.
Wang Zheng applauded enthusiastically as well. He understood the difficulty of it all. He had not expected Snow Li to have progressed this far. He originally thought that her Revert technique could make a breakthrough, but it was the transformation of her Ability X instead.
“Brother Yan, who is the boss’ opponent? Defeat them and win the championship!” said Jasper laughingly. He was in a really good mood.
Among the generals, many had already turned political. But Bolet was different. He was still fascinated by the ability and details of battle.
It was clear that an individuals pride for their country was important. However, judging by the votes from the Aslan Empire, 89% of the voters supported the Sword Shield Rose battle team. This was unprecedented as it was the first time that the votes supporting them did not go past 90%, with a tenth of their students supporting this Earthling called Wang Zheng.
Jondi Lilick sat on the bench, holding his head in his hands. He did not know how to deal with all this – the hope of the nation, the hope of his teammates… all hope was lost.
The Mayans and Astina Federation were the same – they were traditional old power countries, and their capabilities were not that far apart. The Atomic battle team also had two Earth-rank warriors. Although taking first place might be a stretch, they were publicly acknowledged as a team with the ability to enter the top eight.
Ander Lucia and Papilsag were leading the charge. The two Rune Warriors continuously interchanged their positions, taking turns blocking Wang Zhengs fierce attacks. Only in the battlefield did they understand the horror of Wang Zhengs pressure. It seemed that this guy could fall any time, yet they could not defeat him easily. Ander Lucia understood this as soon as they met, so he quickly adjusted the battle strategies.
“Elite Academy X people are really fierce. That Dynasty battle team has really lived up to their reputation.”
Every country let out almost similar exclamations. Honestly, they were all rather disappointed after watching the first semi-finals. The Sword Shield Rose battle team had completely dominated the Dynasty battle team. Such a level was still passable for the quarter-finals. But it was a little below the standards for the semi-finals. The second match, which was initially viewed as having a greater difference in strength between both teams, turned out to be above all expectations.
In an instant, a black energy caved in. Boom… the black flames burst into the skies.
“Snow, this can’t be happening. Every one of you has shown vast improvements. What am I to do?” Zhang Shan’s faced was bitter. How could a breakthrough just happen without any warning? He dearly wanted to have a breakthrough.
Despite that, a persons thoughts and habits would not be changed by mere words. No matter how well you had performed previously, when facing Aragorn, facing the Fighting Spirit mech, was it not courting death by choosing the Hercules?
Lear was feeling very relaxed. He had not felt so relaxed in a long time. It was a rare opportunity for him to enjoy watching Wang Zhengs troubled and wretched look. The feeling of taking the lead first was definitely different. To have achieved such an outcome was all in Lears plan. He was not harsh on himself. This was a reasonable setup. The next step was to see how he could make his victory even bigger.
Three seconds later, the entire arena rang with earth-shattering cheers. This was no longer about nationality, this was a tribute to two great warriors!
