Chapter 822: The Arena Was Too Slippery
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lucifer dropped to the ground with his butt faced up and head on the ground.
The audience was in awe.
Everyone knew that Holy Knight was considered the most prestigious occupation within normal ones. Even power-based occupational Warriors were considered of a lower class when compared to this kind of occupation with long-ranged weapons.
Among the seven types of occupations, Pugilist was merely placed at a little higher level than Archers, and about the same level as Assassins. However, an Assassin’s high explosiveness was something that a Pugilist could not handle too.
Hence, when a Holy Knight and a Pugilist fought, everyone would already expect the result. The Pugilist should have been thrown far off by the Holy Knight.
However, today’s match changed everyone’s impression. Not only did Wang Yu not get thrown by the Holy Knight, he even managed to throw the Holy Knight out of the arena with just one hand. This Pugilist was indeed terrifying. People were just suspecting that Wang Yu’s victory against 10 men alone was a fake show but after seeing this battle, the previous speculations about him were all long gone.
After all, everyone knew how strong Lucifer was. To be able to toss him off the arena within 10 seconds was definitely not an easy feat.
As for Lucifer, no one would even suspect that he bribed his opponents to put up a fake match. Without even considering the intense fight that Lucifer had with Fearless, he would not let be humiliated this badly in front of everyone.
The arena had a very special feature compared to the rest of the locations on the map, which is no matter how much HP the player still had, once he or she was being thrown out of the arena, it would be considered as a defeat.
Lucifer did not know what just happened, as he was being thrown out of the arena in a flash. This made him and Team Satan have the same shocked expression on their faces.
Lucifer stared blankly into space just like everyone else.
Lucifer did not know he lost and everyone else did not understand how the best of their team lost just like that.
“Boss, how did u lose?” Areca asked, astonished. Areca had stayed with Lucifer for very long. This was not only the first time he saw Lucifer lose as it was also the first time Lucifer was so battered… Even the thought of it made him embarrassed.
“Did I lose?” Lucifer talked as if he was in a dream; he still thought that Wang Yu was the one who died.
“I think you lost,” Areca pointed to the scoreboard and replied.
“Oh…” Lucifer replied blankly, “How did I lose…”
This was a question that everyone wanted an answer to.
At this time, someone behind Areca with the name of Lotus King said, “I think if you fall out of this arena location, you lose. Boss, how did you get thrown down?”
“Thrown down?”Lucifer dazed and replied with anger, “Haha, how I was thrown down? The arena was too slippery. That’s why I slipped and fell.”
“Is it?” Everybody was skeptical.
“Otherwise, how can a mere Pugilist have the strength to throw me off?” Lucifer explained.
“Oh?” There were still some people who did not believe.
“Okay, don’t harp on these little details too much.” Lucifer waved his hand and said, “Now, who’s next!”
“Me.” Lotus King replied.
“Hmph!” Lucifer replied coldly, “If you dare to lose, I will kill you!”
“…” Lotus King was speechless.
Lotus King’s job was a Warrior while his opponent was Vainglory.
Originally, Fearless did not want to let Vainglory fight. However, this kid cried and pleaded that he wanted to keep people from harm’s way. Fearless could not withstand the energising spirit from youngsters so he agreed.
However, Fearless did not believe that Vainglory just wanted to keep people from harm’s way. This fella most likely just wanted to show off to the large number of beautiful ladies within the audience by defeating someone evil. Fearless could even feel his pride even before Vainglory stepped into the arena.
Once the both of them were on the arena and the timer went off, Lotus King charged towards Vainglory.
Vainglory was different from Wang Yu, who was the true master. Wang Yu mainly relied on normal attacks, and supported by techniques that were unusual. Even though Vainglory had learnt some moves, this fella was a real gamer who was naturally not going to be like Wang Yu. He mainly trained on Martial Savant and had already mastered all of their moves perfectly.
Seeing Lotus King dashed towards him, Vainglory stepped back, dodged Lotus King’s charge, then kicked Lotus King in the face.
Lotus King was a Warrior. When faced with Vainglory’s move, he did not dodge as he forced a [Tornado Slash] on him.
Vainglory smirked and leaned his body back, charged forward and slid on his back to Lotus King’s feet. Then, he lied on the floor, arched his back and kicked his leg high up to use [Lateral Kick] to hit Lotus King’s waist.
Of course, when he did a [Lateral Kick] in that position, it was considered a [Sky Kick] already. It was taught by Wang Yu. Not only was it powerful and could hit the bullseye, but it also looked really cool.
Lotus King’s skills were disrupted by Vainglory and even lost his balance.
After successfully disrupting Lotus King’s skills, Vainglory jumped up and used [Crushing Blow].
[Linking Kick], [Flaming Foot], [Swallow Turn], [Swing Kick].
Vainglory continuously landed his kicks on Lotus King, and hit a combo. He kicked Lotus King from the centre of the arena right to the edge immediately, and decreased his HP nearly by half.
As expected from someone coached by Wang Yu, Vainglory’s combo was mastered perfectly. Every move was on point. Everyone could not help but applaud.
Seeing Vainglory’s relentless attacks on Lotus King which made him not even able to fight back, the players in the audience cheered.
Vainglory was gifted with good looks and the combo of a Pugilist made him look extremely cool.
This was the legendary combo hit. A Pugilist’s charms lie in here. Even when he or she had been beaten up to nothing, there would still be some players who were obsessed with combos. Upon seeing a perfect combo hit, they would of course be excited.
After a combo hit, Vainglory landed on the ground.
Lotus King finally recovered after being hit so many times. Just when he wanted to raise his sword to attack back, Vainglory reached out his hands to grab both sides of Lotus King’s chest armour, then tripped Lotus King’s legs with his and pushed Lotus King out of the arena too.
Lucifer stomped towards Lotus King and scolded, “Useless, how can you be thrown down by a mere kid?”
Lotus King replied, “The arena was too slippery…”
