“They’re both waiting for the opportunity to unleash their soul skills, victory or defeat will be determined then. The opponent is too powerful. Although the third battalion commander’s technique is impressive, the opponent is still able to respond accordingly. Did you see that? He can divert his direction multiple times when he’s using the propeller. The left and right sway earlier was brilliant. I would’ve surely been struck by the third battalion commander if it were me.”
“Who’s the opponent? I’m sure he’s not from our side. No one here is taking part in the mecha battle using a spear as a weapon. Moreover, no one is at the third battalion commander’s level! The third battalion commander’s close combat skill is top in our Iron Blood Battalion. The first battalion commander will need to use brute force if he wishes to defeat him.”
“What do you mean by brute force?” Jiang Wuyue’s dissatisfied voice was heard.
The soldier stuck out his tongue and sniggered. “Hello, sir.”
Jiang Wuyue was already looking at the large screen with a curious expression on his face.
He had been at the place for some time and was itching to have a go upon watching the battle between the two mechas on the screen. The close combat skills displayed at this level would definitely be considered the highest possible.
In the beginning, the mecha with the spear was obviously at a disadvantage with its rusty and choppy movements. However, the person had extremely good control over the mecha such that he would often make movements that an ordinary mecha could not do to dodge the third battalion commander’s attacks.
However, as the battle progressed, the close combat mecha with the spear began to move faster. Moreover, its movements were becoming more fluid. Both parties were evenly matched soon after.
The spear moved at a swift speed with an indomitable spirit. There were a few occasions where he attacked the opponent’s vital points to counteract the onslaught he was facing. His improvement was drastic, no? Initially, he used his spear to trick his opponent, so he could catch him off guard.
The soldier was right earlier. Jiang Wuyue was afraid that he would need to use brute force if he wished to defeat these two combatants if he were on the inside. Jiang Wuyue was not particularly outstanding when it came to his combat skills as he was more powerful with his martial soul.
“Boom, boom, boom!”
The saber and spear collided with each other three times consecutively. The third battalion commander fell back abruptly suffering a loss in this brutal fight much to everyone’s surprise.
A fiery glow emerged from the mecha soon after such that the third battalion commander seemed to turn red abruptly. Its long saber swung out, and this time a stream of saber’s radiance akin to flowing water shot out and struck straight at the opponent.
“It seems like the third battalion commander is at a disadvantage now. Otherwise, he wouldn’t take the initiative to attack,” someone called out immediately.
Tang Wulin’s mecha did not fight recklessly. In fact, it swayed its body and executed a series of ingenious moves to evade the third battalion commander’s attack.
“What? Why does it look like the Tang Sect’s Ghost Perplexing Track?” The Tang Sect’s technique, Ghost Perplexing Track was learned by every Tang Sect disciple as a foundation skill.
The technique could be used with a myriad of adaptations in actual combat. Everyone had a unique variation of the style, but it was absolutely powerful and effective in actual combat.
However, the technique was only applied to the human body. The Ghost Perplexing Track was well-known throughout the world as it was exceedingly complicated and difficult to master. Only the top grade mecha masters could complete some simple moves with a mecha, because there were many movements which the mecha found restrictive, such as twisting the body.
Yet, the mecha operated by Tang Wulin at present was flaunting such moves. At the same time, the propeller behind his back was turned on. It was indeed unbelievable that he used the Ghost Perplexing Track while charging at full speed.
The third battalion commander felt his vision blurred when the opponent was standing before him. The spear pierced straight into his cabin, but he had yet to retract his long saber.
The third battalion commander ignited his soul skill without the slightest hesitation. Red-gold flames burst forth from his body and fused together with the mecha’s protective shield. At the same time, the long saber in his hand swept across. There was utterly no need for him to dodge anymore.
His goal was simple, which was to use his soul skill to block Tang Wulin’s attack. In order to defeat Tang Wulin, he had to attack him directly at the risk of injuring himself.
The spear touched the protective shield. The third battalion commander suddenly felt dizzy as a gush of intense overbearingness radiated through his entire body. The soul power he was channeling paused for a moment.
His protective shield managed to block the attack from Tang Wulin’s mecha, but the spear’s consciousness that burgeoned from Tang Wulin’s spear radiated into the cabin. It caused the long saber controlled by the opponent to pause for a moment, while its flame weakened considerably.
The protective shield on Tang Wulin’s mecha was launched fully. At the same time he blocked the saber’s attack by force, he managed to pierce forward with his spear. The spear’s consciousness burst out as the spear was tainted golden by his vigorous bloodline power. He had become one with his mecha during the transfer of his bloodline power.
“Boom…” The third battalion commander was smashed by the spear’s consciousness that came blasting at him. His vision darkened just as he was withdrawn from the competition.
On the giant screen, the Blood God Army’s soldiers were watching a scene being displayed. In their eyes, the battle of the two mecha masters was progressing smoothly when, all of a sudden, the opponent who was using the Tang Sect’s Ghost Perplexing Track evaded the third battalion commander’s attack and managed to counterattack effectively.
However, the third battalion commander responded well. The combination of his soul skill and protective shield proved to be the perfect defense against the counterattack.
However, they could not figure out why the third battalion commander’s defense collapsed at the final moment. The opponent, on the other hand, had pierced and penetrated straight through the third battalion commander’s cabin with his spear.
“What, he can’t be losing on purpose, can he?” A major could not refrain himself from shouting out. Other than losing intentionally, they really could not think of any other possibility.
Naturally, the third battalion commander did not intentionally lose. As the first battalion commander, Jiang Wuyue understood the situation. At that instant, it suddenly struck him that the third battalion commander’s opponent looked rather familiar.
The Star Dou cabin opened, and the third battalion commander crawled out with an unpleasant expression. A large crowd surrounded him the moment he came out of the cabin.
“Battalion commander, what happened there? How did you suddenly miss at the final moment?” asked a soldier.
The third battalion commander spoke with an unpleasant tone, “Missed? I didn’t miss at all, although that guy is odd. I managed to block that spear of his earlier, but there was a shocking power that radiated into the control cabin. It made me sink into a temporary standstill that I couldn’t continue to channel my soul skill. It was a misfortune! I truly couldn’t understand what it was. It was like a form of spiritual shock which wasn’t related to any soul skill.”
“Spear’s consciousness?” Jiang Wuyue walked over and stood before the third battalion commander.
The third battalion commander’s expression changed ever so slightly. “It felt like it. Why, Old Jiang, Have you felt it before?”
Jiang Wuyue squinted. “I felt it before, but it can’t be that youth! His spear’s consciousness can’t be that powerful, and he shouldn’t be able to use it on the mecha. You’re definitely unlucky.”
Tang Wulin ended the competition fully satisfied, for he had just won another battle. Moreover, he felt highly inspired by this battle because he had made tremendous improvements in operating the mecha. At least, he had learned from the opponent how to fuse himself with the mecha.
He believed that he could achieve great improvements in operating the mecha by the end of the competition.
However, the opponents would also be stronger the further he advanced in the competition. The way for him to advance was to exhibit more of his abilities later.
Although the earlier opponent had impressive close combat techniques, he did not think that he would lose. The reason was simple. He still had many other abilities apart from operating a mecha. For example, his Goldsong and Overlord Dragon could also engage in battle directly. In addition, his recent success in the amplification of his bloodline power together with his martial soul which could replenish his strength would enhance his fighting capabilities. All these attributes ensured that the ordinary mecha masters could not defeat him so easily.
