“Oh, what a headache.”
“Scarlet, you should discipline your men more… you should know… not all Five Leagues have completed the garrison and preparation yet. This little hiccup would cost us dearly.” Above the Silent Ridge high in the clouds, Netherclaw was teasing the League Leader of Scarlet Dynasty.
As one of the ex-league leaders, Scarlet Bauhinia was like an old friend.
In this joint operation, all the League Leaders acted together in the skies, including Majestic Hero, Black God and the “Winter Demon” Qin Ruo, someone Netherclaw who was trying to avoid talking to.
“Hey, don’t talk nonsense. We’re all influential men over here. Can you guarantee that your men were not talking too?” Scarlet Bauhinia snapped with a leer at Netherclaw.
“Oh geez, stop it! You’re all grown men. Don’t banter on like some spoiled brat, will you?”
The two League Leaders’ word-wrestling was an eyesore to Black God, so he couldn’t help but butt in their conversation. Throwing a look at Qin Ruo and Majestic Hero, he said, “And you two! It’s about time, isn’t it? You’re the main commanders for the west gate, man! The forces from the west are the first to reach the city. Why don’t you get down there and…”
“Don’t be a busybody.”
Majestic Hero and Qin Ruo looked at one another before throwing a mocking leer at Black God.
“Sure! We’ll head down then. Remember where we’re meeting up after you’re done!”
After finishing his retorts, Majestic Hero flew towards Sin City with Qin Ruo…
Guided by the wind, the two of them swooped down from thousands of meters up the sky towards thousands of their men on the ground. Seeing their League Leaders show up, a huge cheer could be heard from below, booming out towards the skies…
“It’s Majestic Hero! Majestic Hero!!”
“Look! Winter Demon! Oh my God! It’s him!!”
Hearing the roaring cheer from below, Qin Ruo felt as though he was an emperor, soaring above his tens of thousands of subjects beneath him. A huge surge of vigor and excitement overwhelmed him as Qin Ruo reaffirmed his determination—he must take down Sin City today by hook or by crook so as to not disappoint all these people who placed their hopes on him!
Gliding in the wind, Qin Ruo shouted, “We only have one chance! We must give it our all! Leave no room for regrets!”
Majestic Hero felt the same. Spreading out his wings, he flew towards his men with Qin Ruo and landed in front of the enormous majestic army—right at the edge of Sin City, 500 meters away from the gates…
Deafening bellows of roaring dragons thundered outside Sin City as Angel Faction’s War Behemoth appeared outside the city gates, towering over everyone. And then, with giant steps, they inched towards the west gate… closer and closer…
Qin Ruo and Majestic Hero rode on the Behemoths’ backs, eyeing the city ahead while the players inside sounded the alarm!
Beyond the walls of Sin City’s west gate, many Demon Faction players couldn’t help but let out a belittling smirk after seeing Angel Faction’s “performance”.
These Angel Faction morons were very arrogant indeed!
Back then, whenever the Demon Faction attacked and besieged any city, they would always poke around the city first to find the weakest spot where they would save their best weapons to hit it last. Yet, these Angel Faction morons had now summoned their War Behemoths to the west side right away. There were only five leagues in their faction at the moment—at most, they had only five War Behemoths to spare. Putting the Behemoths at the west gate right away meant that their main forces would be attacking the west side, signaling the Demon Faction to send over their strongest fighters and defenders there.
An Elementalist, clad in full set of legendary equipment, turned to the other players in the scene, “Tell the Black Witches and Berserker’s League, I’ll be on the west side and I ain’t going anywhere else! They can order the other Leagues all they want. But I’ll want to see just how strong this fabled ‘Winter Demon’ and ‘Element Annihilator’ are!”
After this, the Elementalist immediately zoomed above the countless players on the west gate and announced,
“My brothers from the Dark Gold Empires! Prepare for battle!!”
Hearing this, thousands of players, each bearing a black golden insignia on their chests, activated their barriers, shields, Berserker Aura, and Combat Aura… beams from the buff activations were flashing non-stop inside the gates…
A moment later, archers rushed to the walls and aimed their bows at the enemies outside!
Then, several dozen Demonic Wings soared to the sky together with their League Leader, the Dark Gold Emperor, and hovered above Sin City’s west gate menacingly.
In an instant, the morale of the players on the west gate soared!
“Huh, there are about sixty Winged Champions. Looks like this Dark Gold Empire is not all just talk after all.”
“Hmph, what a joke… sixty? What can sixty idiots do…”
“Yeah… Dark Gold my ass… what an idiotic name.”
“Ah dang! Now he’s got all the spotlight! What a douchebag!”
“If it were not for the unusual circumstances, I would have definitely shot him down from the damn sky…”
Many players from the Sixteen Leagues, mostly Tier 5 champions, started to trash talk the Dark Gold Empire. Yet, they didn’t seem to mind.
A minute later, three more League Leaders had also arrived with their own Winged Champions. Now, a huge impenetrable defense had been formed by over two hundred Winged Champions…
The black menacing Demonic Wings were a symbol of formidable champions in the Demon Faction. Seeing this many Winged Champions in front of them, huge pressure was looming within the Angel Faction’s troops.
Yet, they still quietly maintained their formation as they steadily advanced, tailing the two War Behemoths…
“Hmph! I don’t suppose they’re now scared shitless huh?”
“I think so too…”
“They must be mad to think they could take us on like this.”
“Ha! Perhaps we could head over to their cities and trash them again after the two-month lockdown’s over. Hahahaha…”
“Well, well… it’s so rare to see you coming up with such good plan, Dark Gold…”
As the four League Leaders were engrossed in their conversations, a familiar menacing voice came from behind,
“They haven’t even shown their hands yet and you’ve now gotten over your heads? Hmph… I’ll see how pitiful you’ll end up in the gutter later…”
A huge stocky Berserker was towering behind them..
“Don’t tell me you haven’t received the warnings from Savior and the other elders!”
As he finished his words, the League Leaders threw an ominous leer at him, “Berserker Lord, I don’t think you’ve got any power over us.”
It was indeed the League Leader of the Berserker’s League—Berserker Lord himself.
“No, I’m just sending a reminder. You’ve sweat so much to build your leagues. Don’t let it all go to waste over some trivial mistake.” Berserker Lord looked at them and continued, “I don’t suppose… all of you want to see everyone’s leagues disbanded and all our Honor Points wiped clean, don’t you?”
The other League Leaders let out a smirk again.
“Well, Berserker Lord… I thought you’ve got hundreds of Winged Champions… where are they, huh?”
“Do you think I’m going to show my hand to the enemies before we even started crossing swords? I’m not as dumb as you lot.” Berserker Lord looked at the smirking Dark Gold Emperor and retorted. He had always hated this narcissistic show-off.
“What I did was raise our troop’s morale. Haven’t you heard low morale will lead an army to failure? You lack knowledge in commanding troops…”
“Fools! Do you think with a mere two-hundred Winged Champions would stop them from advancing? Stop being so naive.” Berserker Lord replied coldly, “Or perhaps you’ve never cared to know what goes on inside the Angel Faction’s Five Leagues?”
“What do you mean?” Dark Gold Emperor and his fellow League Leaders faces turned grim.
Berserker Lord pointed his finger to the sky with a mocking sneer.
Looking towards where he pointed at, the League Leaders were all shocked…
Meanwhile, as two gigantic War Behemoths who were carrying Qin Ruo and Majestic Hero approached the city gates, they saw everything that was happening from afar.
They were amused when they saw two hundred Demonic Winged Players rise up and hover above the city gate.
“The hell’s that? A warning shot?” Qin Ruo smiled as he looked at Majestic Hero when the latter shook his head and replied, “It’s about time to show our hand. If not, they’ll think we, the Angel Faction, are nothing but paper tigers…”
Then, Majestic Hero leaped and swooshed to the sky, swiftly gliding directly towards Sin City!
Still riding on his War Behemoth, Qin Ruo smiled as he raised his right arm in the air to the tens of thousands of players behind him. They then spread out to different directions!
In an instant, the west gate of Sin City was filled with the stench of murder, basked in numerous accumulated Elemental Mana, Berserk and Combat Aura!
Then, Qin Ruo waved his arm forward…
Suddenly, hundreds and hundreds of dark silhouettes emerged from the clouds above and zoomed towards the city gate!
As cries of shock and horror filled the city, the dark silhouettes darted down in huge flocks, like a massive tsunami gushing down from the sky
