Chapter 1375: Play the Game
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
From the man’s outfit, he must be a member of the Evil Practice if he was really a cultivator.
Anyway, it was only Gu Ning’s guess, because she didn’t see the man with her own eyes and couldn’t make a judgment from his breath, but she thought that it was close to the mark.
After the man in black was gone, the boss of Ancient Charm said something to one of his staff members, then the staff member walked to the backyard right away and he came back with a man.
The man was precisely the person who made a deal with the old man and told the old man to sell the evil blue and white porcelain to Xiangyun Antique-store.
The boss of Ancient Charm said something to the man, then the man made a call and left with the evil blue and white porcelain after about half an hour. He had a secret meeting with the old man. There were few people around them, but there were surveillance cameras, which was the reason why K was able to discover him. The old man took the evil blue and white porcelain from the man and walked away afterwards.
It was clear that it was a scheme planned by Ancient Charm. It was jealous of Xiangyun Antique-store, so it played a dirty trick.
Gu Ning used to think that she should severely punish the mastermind behind the scheme, but now she changed her mind. It wasn’t a big deal after all, and she also gained a valuable blue and white porcelain. As a result, Gu Ning decided to forget it, but she wouldn’t forgive them if it happened again.
However, Gu Ning was interested in the man in black. If she was able to meet him once more, she would seize the chance to deal with him.
K called Gu Ning shortly after she was in her office. Gu Ning told him that she was in her office, so K went upstairs to see her.
“Hey, boss, are you free now?” K asked anxiously.
“Yeah, what’s up?” Gu Ning asked.
“Log in the game right now. You have no idea how crazy those players are. Within only a few days, several of them already made the intermediate grade. They must be ace game players, and they keep adding you as their friend in the system. They want to challenge you, but aren’t getting a response, so they’re annoyed now,” K said.
“What?” Gu Ning was surprised. If K didn’t tell her that, she would have almost forgotten about the game.
“Alright, I’ll go check,” Gu Ning said and took out her phone.
As soon as she opened the game, she saw many messages which reminded her to add a friend.
K walked out after telling Gu Ning the news.
Those gamers were online all the time, so they immediately saw it when Gu Ning accepted their requests to add her as their friend. There were only eight of them, so Gu Ning spent some time chatting with them and told them that she had been busy recently.
It wasn’t a secret that Gu Ning had several companies, so they understood why she was absent for days. Afterwards, they asked Gu Ning whether she was free for a round.
Gu Ning gave them an affirmative answer, then they began to play the game together.
Players needed to play in teams in the game, and each team could only have 5 members at the most.
There were eight of them, so they had to be separated into several teams. Nevertheless, more than five players wanted to team up with Gu Ning. That being the case, another player stood out and became a team leader, and the other players would be randomly assigned by the system to join his or Gu Ning’s team.
The number of members could be decided by the team leader. Gu Ning decided to have four team members, so only three players could join her team.
After a short while, the two teams were done.
Some players who wanted to be in the same team with Gu Ning felt a little disappointed when they failed to do so, but they were willing to challenge her as well. They could only challenge her when they played against her.
After that, they began to play the game.
At the beginning of the game, they showed up separately in a beast forest. They needed to find their teammates and fight against their enemies at the same time.
As long as all of the members of a team were killed, the other team won.
Teammates could contact each other by typing or voice chatting, so that they could talk about their locations and strategies. It was harder for a player to move up in ranks alone, because he had to play against pseudo-enemies.
All the players who already became Gu Ning’s friends were ace game players, so it wasn’t easy for Gu Ning to win the game either. In the end, Gu Ning’s team still won, but it lost two members. Only Gu Ning and another teammate survived.
Anyway, it was still awesome to win the game when they had fewer teammates.
After playing several rounds, Gu Ning made an excuse and left.
During those rounds, Gu Ning’s team won every time. The other players had to admit that Gu Ning was much better than them.
When Gu Ning left, they also stopped playing the game to have a rest. They posted a screenshot of Gu Ning’s team’s victory on the forum and showed off their experience, which drew a lot of envy from other players.
“What? They have already played the game with Goddess Gu?”
