Chapter 329: Crushing Victory (Part One)
From the booklet that Zenit’s No.1 Traveling Poet Matt Razi created, Fei felt like this young prince named Shevchenko was really average. From the comments Matt Razi wrote, it seemed like there was nothing special about this prince; he was only ranked 32 out of the top-50 masters of the competition.
In a normal setting, it was impossible for him to get into the top-4.
Actually, it would even be hard for him to get into the top-13. However, no one expected that a small character like this young prince was going to get three free passes after only winning his first match and get into the top-4 list.
“Is someone manipulating the match-making process?”
Almost everyone had this question on their minds. After the initial surprise, almost everyone in the audience started to question how Shevchenko got a free pass again. Except for the seven masters on the stage, all other people started to chant.
Since a lot of people were booing and a lot of people were questioning the process, the head judge for the competition had to pause the competition and asked Second Princess Dominguez to quickly investigate into the match-making process.
Many people in the audience were thrilled as they felt like they busted the biggest cheating in the history of this competition, but the result of the official investigation was surprising.
There was nothing wrong with the match-making process, and the reason why Shevchenko got another free pass was purely due to his good luck.
After the official investigation was completed, the uproar died down a lot.
People started to be curious about Shevchenko.
This young man’s luck wasn’t just good; it was insane. There was a good chance that he would get a great position in the new battle legion that was about to be formed.
There were many warriors looking at Shevchenko who was sitting in the audience with envy and jealousy. After thinking that there would be no free passes after this round of the competition, the jealous warriors couldn’t wait for this Shevchenko to be smashed by the other masters.
Since there were only three matches and they were all high-profile matches, they didn’t happen at the same time. Instead, they were all going to take place on the No.1 Sword-Testing Stage sequentially.
The first match was between [Goddess of Archery] Elena who was really popular and [Wind Thunder Staff] Kanort who was from the Gudong Kingdom.
Except for Shevchenko who was somehow really lucky, everyone agreed that [Wind Thunder Staff] Kanort was the weakest among all seven masters. From just the look of it, [Goddess of Archery] Elena got a good match.
The reality wasn’t too far off from the hypothesis.
Elena who was stronger than a peak Six-Star Warrior was able to penetrate through the protective magic array around the stage with her arrow. Kanort who was only a low-tier Six-Star Warrior wasn’t her match.
Although this savage-like master warrior tried to take the initiation and attacked proactively, he wasn’t able to get the advantage. He tried to get within the close-range and use the weakness of all archers, but Elena who was an experienced archer from Diablo World didn’t let him get close at all. After all, Elena had danced around numerous monsters and demons in Diablo World and had fleet footwork.
In a few fast dashes, Elena had already gotten out of her opponent’s attack range like a phantom.
While she was moving, her arrows didn’t decrease in power. After a few frost arrows were shot out, the temperature on the No.1 Sword-Testing Stage dropped dramatically. Kanort tried his best to smash away all the arrows, but the frost energy still got into his body silently. The frost energy suddenly exploded and reduced his reaction speed and movement speed.
After 30 seconds into the battle, Elena shot out an arrow and destroyed the staff Kanort was using.
When Elena pulled on the bowstring again, three sharp and chilling frost arrows appeared on the bow with a blue death glare. The three arrows were targeted at Kanort who had lost his weapon, and this master of the Gudong Kingdom felt like he was targeted by a terrifying beast as he sensed a chill on his forehead.
“I surrender!” After knowing that he was no match to Elena, this warrior surrendered as he jumped off of the Sword-Testing Stage.
It was like an instant win!
This match was very one-sided.
After a short moment of pause, loud and explosive cheers sounded around the stage.
Elena who was powerful and beautiful had more fans than Kanort to begin with, and all the men in the audience felt an adrenaline rush after seeing their secret crush win so dominantly. They all shouted Elena’s name, and they were as passionate as fire.
