Chapter 104 Global Compet.i.tion
A golden temple stood amidst an ancient forest. The temple had five floors in total, and it measured several hundred meters in height and occupied an area equivalent to six sports stadiums.
There was a ma.s.sive stone tablet erected outside of every floor, and every tablet had a column of numbers going from 1 to 100 listed on it. Currently, though, the s.p.a.ce next to these numbers was blank, and beneath these numbers was one line of text. Although the text on each tablet was similar, they werent exactly the same.
The texts were simple to understand, and they represented the rewards one could obtain from challenging the temples trials.
Simply put, the first 100 people to clear each floor would receive varying amounts of a.s.sociation Points to be used with the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation. Meanwhile, the first 100 to clear the first floor would receive 100 a.s.sociation points.
The first 100 to clear the second floor would receive 1,000 a.s.sociation points.
The first 100 to clear the third floor would receive 10,000 a.s.sociation points.
The first 100 to clear the fourth floor would receive 100,000 a.s.sociation points.
The first 100 to clear the fifth floor would receive 1,000,000 a.s.sociation points.
How generous of the a.s.sociation. Not only is it planning on uncovering more talented newcomers, but its also offering such lucrative rewards to the instructors. Is the a.s.sociation trying to get more experts to become instructors?
s.h.i.+ Feng was a little surprised when he finished reading the rewards stated on the tablets.
The G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociations a.s.sociation Points were an incredibly precious resource to the a.s.sociations internal members. Even through official channels, one a.s.sociation Point could be traded for 10,000 Credits. Of course, only a fool would exchange it for such a low price.
The G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation had access to an ocean of resources, and even the various international corporations couldnt hope to compete against the a.s.sociation in terms of wealth. Meanwhile, internal members of the a.s.sociation could exchange for resources that one normally couldnt acquire through the public market.
So long as one had enough points, one could exchange for combat techniques, Legacies, and even S-rank Nutrient Fluids. Although the a.s.sociation had put a price tag of 200 points per bottle on S-rank Nutrient Fluids, it was still a tempting opportunity for many people.
In addition, according to s.h.i.+ Fengs research, the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation even offered the incredibly rare Life Potions for exchange to internal members.
The Life Potion was an item that countless wealthy people sought after. Not only could it heal the wounds on the users body, but it could also rejuvenate the life force of the users body cells, extending their life expectancy and youthfulness.
However, the Green G.o.d Company only produced a very limited amount of Life Potion each year, and even the various international corporations had difficulty obtaining one per year. Yet, internal members of the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation could exchange for it simply by acc.u.mulating enough points. The only problem was that the Life Potion cost a whopping 10,000 points to exchange.
Ten thousand points!
This was an amount that most of the a.s.sociations internal members would never acquire in their lifetimes.
However, the a.s.sociations instructor certification test offered partic.i.p.ating instructors the opportunity to make the impossible possible.
While s.h.i.+ Feng was feeling shocked over the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociations generosity, the outside world was similarly shocked over this situation.
What is the a.s.sociation trying to do, Commander Ziqiong?! Once news of these rewards gets out, even the various powers peak experts wouldnt be able to sit still! the burly middle-aged man standing beside Purple Jade exclaimed when he read the report he just received.
Setting aside the various top-tier training resources the a.s.sociation provided, just the S-rank Nutrient Fluid it offered was already a fatal temptation to many experts. It was especially true for Tier 4 and Tier 5 experts. After all, ones brain would have difficulty improving without a strong body to support it. Meanwhile, not only could the S-rank Nutrient Fluid repair the damage on ones body, but it could also strengthen the physical body. Now that the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation was offering players the opportunity to acquire a large amount of a.s.sociation Points, many experts would most likely be tempted to work as an instructor and take part in the a.s.sociations instructor certification test.
I dont know what the a.s.sociation is trying to do, Purple Jade said, shaking her head. Then, with a hint of fighting spirit in her eyes, she continued, But once news of this gets out, most experts around the world will probably grow restless. We might even see a global struggle between experts. Even the various superpowers old monsters and G.o.d-ranked experts might not mind revealing their cards if it means gaining access to such lucrative rewards. Register me for the test as well, Star.
Youll be partic.i.p.ating as well, Commander Ziqiong? the burly man with the pseudonym of Berserk Star asked in surprise.
Ever since Purple Jade reached tier 6, she had stopped partic.i.p.ating in tests and compet.i.tions altogether. In fact, it had already been over a year since Berserk Star saw Purple Jade in action.
Of course, Purple Jade said with a light smile. Ive constantly been trying to find other G.o.d-ranked experts to fight previously, but those people are so secretive that its hard to find even one of them. This test is a good opportunity to compare myself with the others. While it might not be a frontal clash, it is still a good way to see how I match up with the others. So, how can I miss out on such an opportunity?
There were only several dozen Tier 6 experts in G.o.ds Domain. With the exception of a few newly-promoted Tier 6 experts, most veteran Tier 6 experts were incredibly secretive in their actions. Moreover, now that the various powers had already solidified their rule over their respective territories, there was almost no instance where Tier 6 combatants would appear on the battlefield. At most, clashes between powers would involve Tier 5 combatants.
Because of this, Purple Jade hardly had any chances to fight against other Tier 6 experts after reaching Tier 6 herself. She was especially curious to find out the gap between herself and the various first-place rankers on the G.o.ds Domain Experts List that had disappeared over the years, the various old monsters, and those four people.
Now that the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociation had provided the perfect place for her to test her standards, how could she miss out on this opportunity?
Alright, Ill get it done immediately.
Immediately, Berserk Star stepped out of the lounge and contacted the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociations staff to arrange for Purple Jades partic.i.p.ation.
While Purple Jade was getting ready to take part in the test, the various superpowers Tier 6 experts also received news of the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociations offer.
Interesting! Im going to try out this test!
Is the a.s.sociation trying to come up with a global ranking list for experts?
Ive hardly fought with other Tier 6 experts after reaching Tier 6 myself. This is a good chance to check out how strong the other Tier 6 experts are.
Shortly after news of the G.o.ds Domain a.s.sociations test rewards got out, many Tier 5 and Tier 6 experts worldwide started applying for the a.s.sociations test one after another.
For a time, the instructors test became the focus of the worlds peak experts and above. Many independent experts had even started broadcasting the status of the tests stone tablets live.
Meanwhile, inside one of the test instances
In the short time s.h.i.+ Feng spent pondering over the a.s.sociations actions, several dozen names had appeared on the first floors stone tablet. This meant that several dozen people had already cleared the first floors test.
So many got through already?
s.h.i.+ Feng was a little surprised when he saw that the first floors tablet list was nearly filled.
According to the information the a.s.sociation provided, instructors would gain the Bronze certification so long as they cleared the temples first floor. Meanwhile, one needed to be at the Flowing Water Realm at the very least to become a Bronze Instructor.
It had only been a few minutes since the test began, yet several dozen experts had already conquered the first floors test. This just showed how high the number and quality of experts partic.i.p.ating in the test were.
Immediately, s.h.i.+ Feng also chose to enter the temple.
System: Registration is required to partic.i.p.ate in the test. You may use your G.o.ds Domain ID or a new name to register.
I can choose my own name? s.h.i.+ Feng was a little surprised by this situation. In that case, Ill go with Asura as my name.
Currently, s.h.i.+ Feng still did not wish to expose his name of Black Flame. After all, both himself and Zero Wing were far too weak right now. So, it was good news that he could use a different pseudonym to challenge the test.
System: Naming successful. Player ID Asura registered. Please check in on the first floor.
Immediately, s.h.i.+ Feng transformed into a streak of light that disappeared into the temples first floor.
200 a.s.sociation Points = 2,000,000 Credits
Market value of S-rank Nutrient Fluid is 1,000,000 Credits.
