Chapter 113: Defeat!
“We will see which team is stronger. The Super Whirlwinds, or the Youth Forces! Let the first match of the semi-finals begin!” Davis brought the atmosphere at the stadium to a new height with his relaxed and attractive voice.
The match between the Super Whirlwinds and Youth Forces began as Davis’s voice faded.
The Super Whirlwinds stood at the north of the area in a pentagonal formation. Tom stood at the front with White and Miller on his left and right, while Deng Lun and Will stood in the back.
Meanwhile, the Youth Forces assumed a more conservative quadrangle formation. Captain Voss, the lightning mage, stood alongside Mace, the water mage, while their alchemist stood in the middle with the other two behind him.
“The Super Whirlwinds are the first to attack!”
The Super Whirlwind fans cheered and chanted crazily while the rest of the audience got into a heated discussion.
“Voss’s lightning strike is overwhelming! Was he hiding his strength before?!”
Mace and Voss’s cooperation is excellent. The lighting and water will produce a numbing effect if combined well!”
“The Super Whirlwinds are retaliating. Their attacks are as smooth as a flowing river!”
After withstanding a flurry of attacks, the Super Whirlwinds counterattacked.
White shouted and pressed his hand downward. His red and blue array flashed violently, and its effect radius expanded from ten meters to fifteen meters across the arena.
Suddenly, the array enveloped the Youth Forces. The growth of the mysterious domain expansion reduced the Youth Forces’ speed, and their attacks were not as effective as before.
Tom, the great swordsman, used his triple slashes consecutively, almost becoming one with his sword. It was evident his swordsmanship had improved exponentially.
The audience was even more surprised that the triple slashes’ cooldown had shortened. Tom’s triple slashes were even more threatening than Pell’s from the Crimson Fires.
Tom’s triple slashes instantly broke through the Youth Forces formation. The aura he produced while swinging his sword caused incredible damage to the Youth Forces.
Meanwhile, Deng Lun set up his red poison gas. The dense red poison gas spread within a twenty-five-meter radius. Then Deng Lun launched an attack on the Youth Forces’ alchemist with the help of his red poison gas and agility.
Will had a wider field of view since he stood in the back. He could appear at the most suitable places to shoot arrows due to his swiftness. He constantly shot arrows toward the Youth Forces, forcing them to retreat.
Seeing the dire situation, Voss ordered his teammates, “Quick! Take the pill!”
Voss’s teammates responded and hurriedly crushed the Demon God Pill they kept in their mouths. Voss felt a numbness accompanied by intense pain, and then an immense power filled his entire body.
He shared a look with Mace and used his lightning strikes to launch them at the Super Whirlwinds. However, before the lightning strikes could hit the Super Whirlwinds, Voss felt a massive gust of wind coming from behind.
Voss knew it was Miller’s flying swords. He saw the two dark red swords’ trajectories and jumped to dodge them.
Voss smiled, thinking he had dodged Miller’s attack, but another flying sword appeared from the red gas and pierced through Voss’s right shoulder blade.
Miller’s eyes never left Voss, even from the start of the battle. He noticed the sudden change in Voss and knew he had taken a pill to increase his strength.
Miller was a captain and an excellent commander, so he knew it was a crucial moment in the competition. Therefore, he did not hesitate to ingest his Demon God Pill.
Miller’s eyes turned blood-red when he ingested the pill. The energy from his body instantly burst like a volcanic eruption. It also increased the number of flying swords he had, completely exceeding his opponent’s expectations.
Voss screamed and fell to the ground in pain. Voss’s teammates quickly gathered around their captain when they heard his scream.
Mace looked at Voss’s injuries, and his face turned pale. He was shocked and speechless. Then he got up and gestured for the Super Whirlwinds to stop attacking.
Mace stood upright and gestured to the referee that the Youth Forces gave up. Immediately after, the referee rushed over in an aircraft and said, “Call the medics! Voss is severely injured and needs emergency treatment!”
The referee signaled that the match was over after checking on Voss’s injuries. Then he announced the Super Whirlwinds had won.
The sudden turn of events shocked everyone present. Several audience members were frightened when they saw Voss’s blood on the ground.
The shocked audience members awoke from their shock when they heard the sudden chants. Then more people joined in the cheers and chants, pushing the lively atmosphere in the paladin training grounds to newer heights.
“The Super Whirlwinds are incredible! They wiped out the Youth Forces in a blink of an eye!”
“Yeah, I saw Voss using his ultimate move just now. How did he end up on the ground with blood gushing from him a second later?!”
“It was Miller’s sword control!”
“Miller’s strength is indeed terrifying. How will the other teams compare?!”
“Miller will win the Future Star award as expected.”
When the gambling rings received news of the Super Whirlwinds’ victory, they immediately adjusted the odds. The odds of Miller winning the individual Player Kill competition and the Future Star award rose to unprecedented heights.
Even so, the crazy gamblers poured most of their money toward Miller.
When the bookies heard of Miller’s victory, they lowered Moss’s odds again. While many bookers quickly responded, one bookie, William, was half a beat slower.
A mysterious gambler had bet twenty billion yuan on Miller to win the individual Player Kill competition, meaning William would lose twenty million for a single bet if Miller won the individual Player Kill competition.
Since Moss’s odds were lower in other gambling rings, barely anyone bet on him.
