During his earlier battles, he had even managed to completely reassemble the standard mecha in the competition such that when its assembly was completed, the mecha had the attack and defense ability of a black mecha.
The soul masters were not allowed to leave the mecha during the battle, but they could use their martial souls to reinforce the mecha. How could a standard mecha fight against a black mecha?
Almost everyone who had fought with him would choose a complete outburst without giving him a chance to remodel his mecha. Nevertheless, no one had yet succeeded up till now.
Tang Wulin’s spear landed on the ground as it did not manage to hit the opponent. On the other hand, the Metal Master relied on his ability to form the propeller rapidly and pushed his standard mecha into circling farther away at an even higher speed. He would need to maintain the distance between them right now so as to complete his mecha modification before he turned around to destroy Tang Wulin.
When his propeller was completed, both parties were the closest to one another. They were about a hundred fifty meters apart.
Tang Wulin chased after him, but his speed was truly too fast that it was utterly impossible for Tang Wulin to catch up. It was due to the disparity between the quality of their mechas.
Tang Wulin’s martial soul was powerful, but it was not enough to make his mecha’s propeller accelerate further. This was determined by the quality of the mecha.
Just when everyone thought that the competition was going in the direction as forecasted by the two commentators earlier, Tang Wulin suddenly had an outburst.
His close combat mecha leaped abruptly and relied on its flight capability to suspend itself in mid-air. Soon after, the countless Bluesilver Emperor surged out from the gaps of the mecha. The Bluesilver Emperor stretched out into the surroundings before transforming into tentacle-like vines. Each vine exceeded fifty meters in length. The vines spread out on both sides of the mecha with a span of over a hundred meters.
The Federal Star Dou Battle Network Challenge’s arena was large, but it was still limited. Tang Wulin’s golden, skeleton-like vines of Bluesilver Emperor had its control range vastly increased when the vines were spread open. Although Tang Wulin was still slower than his opponent, he managed to reduce his opponent’s existing territory with his increased control range.
As expected, the Metal Master was no longer at ease, as he was still modifying his mecha. He had only managed to modify a propeller to facilitate the change of direction with more agility while running at full speed. He began to modify the mecha’s main core simultaneously.
Once the main core was completed, the level of compressed energy supplied to the mecha would be different. By then, he could rely on the absolute dominance of his mecha to suppress Tang Wulin.
The Metal Master had a seven-ring Soul Sage cultivation base. The combination of his skilled control over metals and having a higher rank mecha gave him the absolute confidence to win the competition.
His mecha shimmered with great ease in the arena with its unusually swift speed. Even though Tang Wulin’s control range was expansive now, he still could not catch up to his opponent.
The Metal Master sat inside the control cabin as his entire body was glimmering with the metal’s shine. He transformed his mecha continuously. Meanwhile, his lips had cracked into a victor’s smile.
His mecha was about to achieve the purple mecha’s standards soon, but he was not in a rush at all. He would destroy the opponent with a crushing blow when his mecha was modified to a black mecha, just like how he would squash an ant. He would not give the opponent any chance at all.
‘Why do they call him the ‘Spear King’, he’s simply a joke.’
Just as he was feeling calm in his heart, he unintentionally passed by Tang Wulin’s spear which had landed on the ground earlier when he was dodging Tang Wulin.
It was at this moment when a stream of golden radiance suddenly shot out from the spear and wound around his mecha’s legs at lightning speed. The other end of the golden radiance was anchored to the spear which was stabbed deep into the ground.
His mecha’s hind legs were wound during its flight. The mecha’s body suddenly lost control just like a car in an emergency-brake situation.
The Metal Master was stunned. He reacted by operating his mecha hastily.
However, it was too late!
A large stretch of the Bluesilver Emperor surged out from the ground without warning and transformed into sharp spines that pierced through his mecha. Then, the Bluesilver Emperor transformed into vines which twined around the mecha tying it firmly to the ground.
The mecha immediately liquefied under the Metal Master’s control in an attempt to flee. However, Tang Wulin was already waiting for him.
A foot stamped heavily onto the ground followed by a layer of yellow radiance unleashed from Tang Wulin’s mecha.
It was the Gravitational Control.
At the same time, a large stretch of the Bluesilver Emperor began to churn violently on the ground and break the liquefied metal apart into small pieces.
The spear on the ground with its radiance interlaced was akin to a lightning storm as it carved out streaks of indentations on the ground. The liquefied metal did not even have a chance to flee as it was cut into countless bits.
‘What do you mean by helpless?’ Tang Wulin had devised his tactics when he discovered that his opponent was the Metal Master.
The Metal Master was most skilled in metal control and mecha-making. Actually, Tang Wulin was not his match in a mecha battle. Nonetheless, Tang Wulin was also a control-type soul master!
The liquefied metal was the Metal Master’s famed technique. Even without the mecha, he was still difficult to defeat with this technique of his. There was almost no other ability capable of restricting him other than an ultra-high temperature attack.
Nonetheless, this was a mecha battle. When the mecha’s damage was beyond a certain degree or it was too fragmented, the system would automatically perform an assessment to determine the result of the competition.
“Number Sixty-Six, victory!”
The Metal Master was still in the midst of assembling his liquefied metal when the electronic voice announced the result of the competition.
The Goldsong which had just performed remarkably well transformed into a stream of golden radiance before squeezing itself into Tang Wulin’s mecha and vanished. The Bluesilver Emperor was retracted. It was only then the liquefied metal managed to return to its initial mecha state. Regardless of how recalcitrant the Metal Master was, he had lost the competition!
The two commentators opened their mouths in disbelief.
“It’s over? He had lost? The Metal Master had lost? Oh my god! How’s that possible?”
“How did the spear tossed by Number Sixty-Six launch its soul skill? It looked like a snake-type spirit soul. Yet, the spirit soul was capable of launching the soul master’s soul skill. Moreover, it unleashed more than one soul skill, what does it mean? It means that the spirit soul is at least of a hundred-thousand-year rank, right?”
“Yes! How could a spirit soul possess such spiritual intelligence without a hundred-thousand-year cultivation base?”
How could they have known that the Goldsong was actually defective when it was purchased by Tang Wulin from the Spirit Pagoda back at the beginning.
So, it turned out that the Metal Master could be dealt with in such a manner? Even though Tang Wulin did not manage to kill him, it was enough for him to attain such a result in the competition.
No one regarded the Spear King as a promising winner, but he managed to apply his special technique and super powerful spirit soul to defeat the Metal Master and enter the semifinals.
The Metal Master felt utterly depressed for his loss. At the same time, he realized that he had not paid much attention to his spirit soul before. A powerful spirit soul could actually be useful and effective on the battlefield.
He lost on his battle tactics and misjudgment in the competition. The spirit soul hidden by the Spear King had a decisive effect on his victory.
Tang Wulin did not feel overly excited in defeating his opponent. In his opinion, the Metal Master’s ability, albeit impressive, was still lacking when compared to a top grade mecha master like Ling Wuyue. His ability at improving the mecha was outstanding. However, if both parties used black mechas, then he would no longer have the edge in a battle.
It was very difficult for a mecha to launch a wide range attack which resulted in the opponent being able to evade Tang Wulin. Naturally, Tang Wulin would not deny that the opponent was superior in mecha-making. He was truly an exceptional powerhouse.
Anyhow, Tang Wulin enjoyed fighting against a powerful opponent, especially one skilled in operating a mecha. It provided an opportunity for him to elevate himself. Today’s battle provided him the chance to apply his battle tactics appropriately. The victory in the competition was achieved by using such methods.
He was one of the semifinalists in the mecha battle!
