Chapter 1059: Another Sonic Boom tunnel
50 minutes after the invasion began, in the game space.
Mall, area 101.
“Phew … Haha…Hahahaha …” Atobe wiped the blood off his face as he watched the wreckage turn into data fragments and disappear. He let out a long sigh and laughed.”Finally … Finally, they’re all dead! Hahahaha …”
Atobe’s crazy reaction was understandable, as he had just been released from an intense and suffocating battle.
Other than him, the members of gods, red cherry blossom, pugilistic world, and Team 2 of the public order were also relieved.
In the last half an hour, the members of these first-class teams had worked together for the first time and exhausted themselves to destroy a total of five “Giants.”
This group of Giants also had a special name, the [invader].
The difference between them and the normal redundant soldiers and the clean-up units was that the invader was not a native data soldier. They were “combined” from other redundant soldiers.
Generally speaking, only one invader could be formed after 300 ordinary redundant soldiers were combined in data form.
The combat power of the invader was determined by the total strength of all the redundant soldiers participating in the integration. If there were rogues among the redundant soldiers participating in the integration … Then their combat power would also be counted.
In summary, they were a very strong data soldier, and the trump card of the redundant Legion.
Although the top players of area 101 had successfully eliminated five invader, they had also paid a heavy price.
Frost monarch’s “name difficulty trio” was the first to die. They made a great contribution in the battle against the first invader. It could be said that they had tested the invader’s many characteristics. Red Sakura’s tie Haitang and Feng xinzi, as well as team two’s invincible champion, fearless champion, ye Zhi, and swordsman Wu Dao, were all killed in the process of fighting the second and third invader.
At this point, the players had basically found a way to deal with the invader, and there were only two of them left. Therefore, the following battle was relatively simple.
Even after all five invader were killed, the death count did not increase.
However, in general, the losses in this battle were still relatively serious. The only main team that had not lost a single member was team gods one (only four people came). The other teams had suffered varying degrees of losses.
“Sigh … Why can’t I laugh at all …” Looking at Atobe’s laughter, the barcode raised the sniper rifle in his hand, sat on the ground, and sighed.
This Ace sniper from regulation was now the only surviving member of team two. His current mood could only be described as lonely as snow …
“You’ve all worked hard. ” Ask the heavens immediately turned around to look at the non-professional players outside the battle ring and said,”thank you all.”
He said this not to win people’s hearts, but to express his sincere gratitude.
Just now, when the five strong professional teams had joined hands to fight against the invader, the other players in area 101 had spontaneously joined forces to help them block the ordinary soldiers and moderators on the periphery, clearing out the rear.
Without the help of these players, the battle would have been even more brutal … Or even a crushing defeat.
“What are you saying? if you didn’t stop those Giants, we would have lost all hope.”
“Yeah, we’re only doing what we can.”
The moment ask the heavens smile finished speaking, passerby a and passerby B, who were closer to him, politely responded to the president of world of martial arts on behalf of the masses.
At this moment, the feeling of ‘fear’ had basically disappeared from the players ‘hearts, and in its place was a sense of accomplishment after surviving a disaster.
Humans were animals with strong adaptability. Fear was also something that could be adapted to. For example, a horror movie could scare you once or twice, but after watching it three, five, or even ten times, the fear would fade away. After watching it a hundred times, the fear would completely disappear … Because by the time you watched it for the 101st time, you would already know what would happen in the next second. In other words … The “unknown” became “known”. Without the unknown, there would be no fear. This … Was adapting.
By the same logic, in the face of a sudden crisis, the psychological reaction of humans was the same … Fear would make people feel shocked and helpless, and at this time,’instinct’ would replace ‘thinking’ and take over people’s behavior.
Instinct was the precious wealth that a creature gained in the process of evolution. It was one of the guarantees for the survival and reproduction of a species. Most of the creatures in the food chain would have a similar reaction process when they encountered unknown danger. They would run, hide, observe, and test …
Humans were no exception.
The development of science and Technology and the maturity of cognition did not change our instincts too much, but fortunately, as a highly intelligent creature, humans could overcome their instincts through training.
In times of danger, individuals who had more “experience of overcoming fear” would adapt faster than other individuals. They only needed a short time to bring their “thinking” back to the high ground occupied by “instinct” and play a good lead. (Author’s note: Feng bujue should be excluded from this type of people because the high ground in his mind was occupied by the ‘thinking’ for a long time, and his ‘instinct’ could only wait at the middle of the mountain.)
As long as there was a small group of people, or even one person, who could quickly make the correct reaction based on thinking, there was a chance to affect all of their kind around them. This was because …”Imitation” was also an important part of human adaptability. When people saw that one of their own kind had done something and was safe and sound, their fear of the matter would also be reduced. They would feel that … They could also accomplish it to a certain extent.
That was the general situation of the battle in area 101. Under the leadership of a small number of elite players, the ordinary players quickly put their fear to the back of their heads and joined the battle.
In the face of such a desperate situation, no one gave up, and no one fled. In the end, they had successfully killed all the invading anomalies.
It was worth mentioning that … In this battle, two groups of people played a particularly crucial role.
The first group was the organization “bi an guards” who wore long white trench coats with the word “Shang” written in blood on the back. The other group was wearing long blue trench coats with the word “Shang” written in blood on the back. It was the organization “Xu Huai Shang official fan group.”
The nature of these two groups of people could not be any more obvious, and there was not much to say … Among the large group of non-professional players, these two groups of people were simply like suicide squads. After the first invader appeared, most of the normal players cowered. Only these two groups … Remained unmoved. From the beginning to the end, they stood behind the five strong teams (it was only red Sakura’s team), determined to fight to the end.
No matter what their motives were, their actions inspired the surrounding players. Their ‘death-defying’ attitude also inspired the crowd’s morale, and they managed to maintain the battle line that was on the verge of collapse.
It had to be said that … A certain female player had contributed greatly to the victory of this battle …
All in all, after a fierce battle, this area finally returned to peace.
The safety at this moment was undoubtedly the result of the joint efforts of everyone present.
To the players, they felt like … New recruits who had just participated in the first battle. Just surviving was enough to change their minds. In the future, when they faced similar situations, they would be able to “adapt” faster.
In reality, the difference between experienced veterans and new recruits was roughly the same … It was this “adaptability” that determined whether you would be dumbfounded or explode in an unexpected situation. Believe me … In most cases, the dumbfounded one would die.
“Here comes the question …” After a moment of silence, Shiva looked at the people around him and said,”… Is this the end?”
As he spoke, he looked at the border of the area. At this time, in addition to the dome of the mall, even the walls next to it had a huge spatial Rift. Even from a distance, one could clearly see the distorted space and time formed by data light streams.
“When the third, fourth, and fifth Giants came in … They knocked down most of the outer walls of the area. The elevator door leading to the log-in lobby has also been destroyed. How are we going to go back?” Shiva muttered.
“In any case, a forced retreat is still not possible.” The Great Brahma quickly replied,”I tried it just now.”
“Hmm … And those players who have died are still uncontactable.” Black, white, and grey touched their chins and said.
“Don’t tell me …” At this time, a very bad idea flashed through Xu Huai Shang’s mind,”… The system wants us to kill each other until the last person?”
Her words made everyone at the scene gasp.
Fortunately, the change that happened in the next second … Denied her hypothesis.
At that moment, all the players heard a strange sound, and their eyes were covered by a white light.
What happened next was similar to teleportation, but slightly different … But the players couldn’t tell the specific differences.
About five seconds later, when the players returned to their senses, they had arrived in a whole new space.
This wasn’t a mall, but a white, boundless world.
The sky and the ground before him were both pure white. The entire sky was like a ceiling that was out of reach, emitting a moderate amount of light. On the white land, there were many different sizes of sceneries … There were tall buildings, trees and forests, mountains and rivers, and so on. These sceneries were all pure white, with only outlines and no details. Some were just like huge geometric building blocks standing there.
In addition to these “Grand sights,” there were many relatively small things in this space, such as cars, street lamps, merry-go-round, dressing tables, bathtubs … These countless objects were also white outlines, and there was no pattern to follow. It was as if they were randomly selected from an Encyclopedia and were evenly scattered on the white land.
“Eh? Isn’t that the weighty words of the heavens and earth?”
“Oh right, there are also sad fruits.”
“That’s the mountain river’s searing autumn wind, right?”
“Hey! The Four Heavenly Kings of gods are over there!”
“Eh? Flashes of sword and not a scaredy cat from the game were in the same area as us just now, right?”
“Waa! I see goddess Xu. Am I dead? Is this heaven?”
Not long after the teleportation ended, the players discovered something … It seemed that all the survivors from the various mall areas had been sent to this strange space.
Just as the players were still scratching their heads, suddenly …
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Heavy, rhythmic footsteps came from all directions, and the ground beneath the players ‘feet trembled.
“What’s going on? Are there Giants?”
“Argh! Over there!”
“There’s one there too!”
Indeed, these sounds and vibrations were the footsteps of the invader.
At this moment, four invader were running from four directions towards the three thousand players gathered together …
“Tsk … I’m not afraid of you!”
“F * ck! If you’re not convinced, then fight!”
“They’re here with ill intentions. Everyone, prepare to face the attack!”
The players who could survive here were all experts who had survived the battles in various regions. Although not every area was attacked by multiple invaders (the redundant soldiers tracked the target by sniffing data, and area 101 had the most troops because of the large amount of powerful data gathered, while the other areas only had one invader at most), everyone present was confident that they could withstand the attack of the four Giants.
However … They had misunderstood one thing.
These four invader were not charging at the players, but …
Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang
Before the invader could even get close to the players, they had already jumped up. They jumped at almost the same time, and they jumped extremely high. When they reached a high point, the four devourers simultaneously … Self-destructed.
“What’s this for? To release fireworks …”
“If he wanted to self-destruct, he should’ve done it closer. Jumping so high wouldn’t have affected us at all.”
In the first three seconds, the players were still wondering what the ‘Giants’ were up to, until the fourth second … The four light sources in the sky suddenly turned into four streams of light, gushing and gathering towards the center.
Then, the players heard two loud noises.
The first sound was a long buzzing sound.
The second sound was an explosion.
Along with the sound, a tsunami-like sound wave swept out and pressed toward the players.
Even though the players quickly raised their hands to cover their ears, their eardrums still hurt from the sound of the explosion above their heads, and their legs went soft. Some of the players with lower Life Points … Were turned into white light by the Soundwave.
“This is bad …” After a full 12 seconds, the explosion stopped. Shiva, who was kneeling on one knee, resisted the dizziness and raised his head to look at the sky.
At this moment, about a hundred meters above the ground, where the four streams of light had converged … A spherical space crack with a radius of about twenty meters had appeared. It looked as deep as a black hole in all directions, and the edge of the sphere was surging with electric light.
Shiva had a deep impression of this thing. In fact, before he even raised his head, he had already guessed what he was going to face.
“…It’s the sonic boom tunnel again. ” (To be continued.)
