Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Jiang Feng did not know that China was going to face grave danger.
At this time, he was still spectating the competition in front of him.
The first match had already begun. Two people had jumped up on each of the ten arenas. That meant that there were a total of twenty of them.
Once ten winners had been decided, they would wait for those who would win during the second round and begin another draw so that they would enter the third round together. So on and so forth.
It could be said that those who were at the beginning would be worse off because they might have to fight several times.
Meanwhile, those at the back only needed to fight once or twice. That was why Jiang Feng, who had drawn the third round, only needed to sit on his chair comfortably and watch the competition, and take note of the Mysticisms they had used.
Out of the ten of them, there were three who were on the top ten on the Tianji Leaderboard.
They were Wanke, Shaoqiu, and Kairuijie.
Jiang Fengs attention had always been on Wanke. Out of all the contestants, Wanke was the one with the greatest threat to him. That was why he was paying so much attentionto him. Only by knowing his enemies and himself could he secure victory after victory.
Wanke was a bald man and he was wearing a Kasaya. He looked like a monk.
However, unlike normal monks, he was completely golden in color. However, he did not look like he was a monk that had been oiled over with golden powder and yellow bronze paint. His texture looked very nice, it was as if he himself was a little golden man.
His opponent was Kairuijie.
Kairuijie was ranked eighth on the Tianji Leaderboard. His power was not weak either, and he had reached Earth Realm Two Stars. His combat rating was 4,832. He had the head of a leopard with a pair of beautiful, wiry feet.
Kairuijie did not expect to encounter Wanke in the first round fighting for the Top Five, and it made him quite annoyed.
In order to not miss anything during the battle, he stood his ground and did not make any moves at all. He stared right into Wanke.
Wanke had his eyes closed as his hands were clasped together. He stood there as if he was a wooden stake.
"Seriously? Do all the elites like to show off so much? I am an elite in Divine Dominion too and I wasnt as shy as both of you!" Jiang Feng was quite irritated when he looked at the two standing in the arena without making any moves at all.
In truth, he knew that between two elites, whoever attacked first would expose his weakness first. And they might get dealt with a lethal strike.
However, his understanding was different. From his perspective, those who think that way were people who lacked self-confidence. Only those that had no confidence would believe that if they attack first, they would expose their weaknesses first. The more one believed this, the easier it would be for him to expose his weakness.
If that was the case, it might be best to attack before the enemy could react.
From his perspective, when elites fight, whoever attacked first would be more powerful in terms of impression. Those with a more powerful impression would have a better chance at winning.
It was at this time when Wanke started his attack first. His eyes were still closed, but his mouth was slightly opened as he said that word.
It was the word Hong from the Buddhist Mantra.
He then saw that the word that he read had materialized, and the word flew out of his mouth and slowly became bigger and bigger, and then finally slammed itself toward Kairuijie.
When Kairuijie saw that Wanke had begun his attack, he naturally would not just stand there and wait to be crushed. He quickly took out a sword. His figure flashed as he quickly avoided the attack and rushed toward Wanke.
Another word flew out from Wankes mouth, blocking Kairuijie.
Unfortunately, Kairuijies speed was very fast. Even if Jiang Feng used Expeditious Steps, he would not be able to chase him down. Wankes attack could not even touch him.
"Om Mani Padme Hum"
Just when Kairuijie was going to get close to Wanke, Wanke began to chant faster as if he was chanting a sutra. Word after word flew out of his mouth and were hurled toward Kairuijie.
Kairuijie could still avoid three or four, but in a short while, Wanke had already managed to recite hundreds of words. He could not deal with them and could not even get close to Wanke.
"I give up!"
When Kairuijie saw what was happening, he gave up on the battle and surrendered.
That was it?
Jiang Feng had not even seen Wanke use any of his ultimate attacks yet, but Kairuijie had already given up. He was quite disappointed.
His guess was that Kairuijie had entered using his real body. If not, he would not have avoided fighting with Wanke.
However, if he entered the game using his real body, then it could explain everything.
He could save his life when he knew that he was no match for Wanke.
If Wanke were to accidentally kill him, it would be a great loss for him.
Jiang Feng was quite disappointed as his long observation on Wankes power proved unfruitful. He then switched his attention to the other top ten players on the Tianji Leaderboard.
His sight fell on the little kid Shaoqiu who was riding a horned tiger at the Ruins of the Godlike.
Seeing Xiran encounter Shaoqiu, he knew that this would be where her journey ended.
"I give up!"
Xiran chose to give up too.
"I give up!"
"I give up!"
Very quickly, three more contestants had surrendered.
"What the hell? What happened? Is the fight for the top five this boring?"
Jiang Feng was originally going to pay full attention during the fights so that he could know more about his opponents. But what made him speechless was that four of them had immediately chosen to give up.
He did not need to think to know that all four of them must have entered the game using their real bodies.
When they saw the enemies that they were going to face, they gave up without hesitation because they did not have the confidence to win.
And it was just as Jiang Feng had guessed, many of the players on the Tianji Leaderboard had entered the game using their real body. The reason that they joined the Tianji Leaderboard was to earn some reputation points.
It was not worth it if they were to lose their lives just for the reputation points.
However, Jiang Feng did not agree with what they did. Death was terrifying, but some things could only be gained by struggling at the brink of death. For example, some fighting experience, strong confidence, and the breakthrough of their powers.
Only by experiencing situations where they had one foot in the grave would they grow.
For example, despite Wanke being much more powerful than he was, he would still go and fight for this champion position. Huaxie was powerful, right? Yet he still confidently fought Huaxie.
It was not because he was aggressive. It was because he had a 30% chance of winning. As long as he could understand more about Wankes ultimate attack, his chances of winning would grow even bigger.
Not to mention even if he did lose, he would not necessarily die. For those who had entered using their real bodies, it was possible to control the chi shield to the point where they instantly give up the moment that their lives are threatened.
That was Jiang Feng. After making sure that he had left behind the hope of surviving, he would then fight to the last moment with everything he had against his enemies. He would keep on experiencing the moments of life and death so that his power would keep on increasing!
In truth, other than Jiang Feng, many people were quite ashamed seeing these elites giving up so easily.
At a place very far away from where they were at the Great World of Tianji, at areas that were already fully explored.
A group of old men and a group of young men were all gathered here, and they were watching the Tianji Tournament.
An old man with white beard and hair, and sharp eyes, looked at the people who gave up and said with anger, "My, my Why are this generations players all so terrible? They dont even dare to fight! I am so angry right now! If this continues on, I think we can forget about fighting the Heavenly Demon! We can just give up!"
Another old man that was quite graceful then said, "Brother Zhou, you got angry a bit too early. The one we want is the champion. We can take a look at the champions potential and decide then. Were you not happy with Sus from the last tournament?"
"Hmph! I am even angrier now that you talked about Sus. It was me who had wanted him, but he was grabbed by that old toad. Right now, I do not have a disciple. The next champion is mine. Whoever dares to grab this champion from me, I will take him down!" The white-bearded and white-haired old man said to a group of old men next to him.
