Chapter 216 The damned jinx (Part one)
When the captain of the 13th MR fell, his mind was completely blank. What the heck?
Now he began to understand the creepy smile Huang He gave to him and wondered if he had been ambushed.
But what the heck just happened?
In the thick smoke, no one could see clearly but he was still hit with a headshot and was eliminated?
I just dashed out here and was going to show off my great abilities, and now you tell me I’m eliminated?
Who the fack shot me? Come out!
While he was wondering, the commanders in the spectating room were all looking at the screen in shock. The technician said with a chuckle, “This is the second headshot from blind sniping. By now, his headcount harvested is already at 43, which is 24 points higher than the second place. The most important point is that Xu Cheng earned these points all by himself while the others got points with the help of their teams. This year, no matter if he gets eliminated or not, he’s given us an ultimate show of solo combat abilities.”
The commander of the 13th MR, whose captain had been eliminated by Xu Cheng right after his entrance, blurted out, “How can we f–king continue?”
After all, it was fatal for a team when the captain was eliminated, because it would greatly impact the strategy enforcement and morale of the remaining teammates. They felt despair that Xu Cheng could even headshot their captain in the thick black smoke, which was a big blow for everyone; they felt as helpless and in despair as rookie players getting toyed with by game masters.
The instructor of the 8th MR had heard Yan Wei and Wang Yin sing high praise of Xu Cheng but had thought they were exaggerating. But now, even if no one had praised Xu Cheng, he would’ve become Xu Cheng’s devoted fan and brag about him to everyone he knew.
He was speechless before the show Xu Cheng gave to them.
Commander Zhou of the 8th MR was lamenting inside his heart, How come such a hacker doesn’t belong to my military region? Why?!
Then, he looked toward Commander Xie of the 5th MR and sighed, “I’ve always heard that the Three Swordsmen are the big pillars of your military region, and I thought it was just an exaggeration. But I realize that they are quite thick columns. Old Xie, to be frank, I think you’re standing in the way of his bright future, do you know? I’m sure you can’t keep him after the competition.”
Commander Xie snorted. “I’ll show no mercy to anyone who tries to steal him. I’ll even bring it to the military court.”
Commander Zhou gave him a dirty look. “Staying in your military region, he won’t be able to achieve big things. How can you sound so righteous when you’re ruining his future? I’m sure the old guys in the other military regions will fight you over him.”
Instead of being intimidated, Commander Xie became even more stubborn like a bigoted veteran since Xu Cheng was now his precious treasure. With a reddened face, he said in a deep voice, “I’m not afraid. I’ll train the rookies next year with him as the center; then I’ll come back and take out all of you.”
Commander Zhou said, “I’ll trade him for 20 top seeds, a team which can enter the top 20. Don’t babble and do the deal.”
Commander Xie: “Get out. No matter how many seeds you offer, I won’t sell Xu Cheng; he has feelings for my military region, so don’t make schemes on him.”
Commander Zhou: “We’ve recruited many girls in our office department.”
Commander Xie: “You’re disgusting.”
Commander Zhou, “It’s your fault. Old Xie, please help me. With him, your military region can’t reach the top 10 anyway. But we’ve always been in the top 5 each year; with him, we’ll be able to charge at the first place in international competitions.”
Commander Xie stood up and walked away in a huff. “Sorry, but I can’t give him to you. Go and steal people from other military regions.”
