Chapter 89: Clearing the Battlefield

The elimination of the first person instantly put the other students on high alert.
They had made it this far with great difficulty, and they did not want to be blasted off the stage by the Magic Crystal Cannon in a sorry state. Thus, the remaining students all displayed their defensive and movement techniques.
They dodged left and right on the assessment stage, afraid that they would become the next person to be eliminated.
Right then, a tall young man set his sights on Han Cheng, who was holding a shield. He immediately activated his weapon’s additional effect and slashed at Han Cheng with his saber.
His saber’s aura came with scorching flames, but Han Cheng was still trying his best to block the incoming magic crystal bullets. When he sensed the spirit energy fluctuation behind him, his expression changed slightly.
He was a genius ranked third on the list, so he reacted in an instant.
As he activated his equipment’s effect, the center of the large shield in his hand cracked open, and a wave of dark green aura emerged. It turned around and shot toward the student who had ambushed him.
Han Cheng directly blocked the scorching blade aura that came at him with his powerful large shield, diffusing the flames into nothingness.
The young man was hit by a dark green gas instead. He immediately felt his entire body go weak and collapsed to the ground.
Just then, magic crystal bullets with colorful lights arrived from afar.
Before he could react, he was blown off the assessment platform.
“Hehe, if you want to blame someone, blame yourself for choosing the wrong target,” Han Cheng said with a smile while he carried his large shield.
He raised his head to look at the screen. At this time, Han Cheng’s assessment score was already close to Qian Rong’s, and he was about to reach second place.
However, standing behind the Magic Crystal Cannon, Zhou Jinlong, who was controlling the mechanism, still felt somewhat dissatisfied with how slow the elimination process was going.
He frowned slightly and thought of a solution.
“Attention, students. The Magic Crystal Cannon will go into second gear soon. When that happens, the power of the magic crystal bullets will increase slightly, and the swarm of bullets will also become denser!”
Zhou Jinlong revealed a smile after he spoke. Without waiting for the other students to react, he pressed the button for the Magic Crystal Cannon’s second gear.
The sound of gears turning from inside the machine could be heard. In the next moment, the oval-shaped magic crystal bullets, which were originally only the length of a finger, expanded to more than ten centimeters long. There were so many of them that they were uncountable.
The swarming magic crystal bullets directly sent the few students closest to them flying.
It gave the others a short time to react, and they immediately began to defend themselves.
Han Cheng held the big shield in front of him, trying to cover his body as much as possible so that the magic crystal bullets would not cause any damage to him.
However, when the crackling bullets hit, the big shield could not really withstand them. Waves of enormous recoil force bombarded Han Cheng’s body, forcing him to continuously retreat.
“Arghhh! I can’t block them anymore!”
In first gear, the students could still use their weapons to deflect the magic crystal bullets. However, the magic crystal bullets were denser than before. The students could no longer hold on, and they were all swept out of the battlefield.
After a short time, only five people were left on the stage.
Seeing that they would lose if they did not eliminate at least one person, the remaining five people used their crowd-control skills.
Lightning, icicles, and other skills with all kinds of effects flew around. In the chaotic battle, three students on the field finally met the requirements to advance.
At this moment, Qian Rong was holding his greatsword, and his entire body was drenched in sweat. The blade that was made of rebar steel was slightly uneven after experiencing a great battle. It was no longer as imposing as it was in the beginning.
The shield in Han Cheng’s hand was also wearing out. After taking countless magic crystal bullets head-on, the surface of the shield had been scraped off, revealing the mixed materials underneath.
The high-tech cannon, which had released numerous magic crystal bullets, finally stopped. A wisp of green smoke rose, drawing an end to the somewhat cruel battle.
The remaining three people looked at each other, their eyes filled with lingering fear and gratitude.
“I announce that the control test for the first group has ended. Han Cheng, Qian Rong, and Zeng Doli have passed!”
Seeing this, the assistant at the side promptly reported the test results.
In just the first control test, seven students had lost the chance to be outstanding students.
Based on this alone, one could see that this test was much more brutal than the previous ones.
The three students left the assessment platform following the assistant’s instructions. They were ready to go to the rest area to recover their physical strength and prepare for the final battle.
In the nearby VIP seats, many company representatives kept whispering to each other, discussing the results of the assessment.
“That Han Cheng is really strong. Even when he was ambushed, he managed to stabilize his mind and turn the situation around. Our company needs such talent!”
“Nonsense. Qian Rong’s actual combat ability is obviously stronger, and his work didn’t suffer much damage. Compared with the other students’ pathetic appearances, he’s clearly steadier!”
In the eyes of many entrepreneurs, the fact that the three students could survive such a difficult assessment was enough to prove their strength. If they could recruit the students into their companies, it would definitely bring them great benefits.
However, the entrepreneurs were not the only people with such thoughts.
Even Principal Qiu, who was sitting in the judge’s seat, had his own plans.
He wanted to keep the outstanding students to serve as the teachers’ assistants.
After all, it was not easy to nurture an outstanding student, and they had invested a lot of manpower and resources. Unfortunately, most of the students would choose to invest in society after graduation.
The Divine Arms Academy had sent out many outstanding talents over the years, but the number of good teachers was decreasing.
If this continued, the Divine Arms Academy would one day end up as a third-rate academy.
Rather than recruiting from general society, it was better to choose from the graduates.
That would not only ensure the quality of the teachers but also prevent others from infiltrating their academy!
After all, the students had already studied there for three years, and their family backgrounds and temperament were known to the teachers.
Furthermore, the Divine Arms Academy was a state-owned enterprise, and its prospects were not any worse than those of online companies. The students had worked hard for three years, and now they would successfully graduate with excellent results. If they could become part of the academy’s teaching resources, they would definitely be able to resolve their current issues.
However, only so many students had advanced, so there were not enough of them to be allocated practically.
Therefore, before the assessment even ended, the company representatives already started to get into a conflict.
A moment later, the host once again used the remote and adjusted the screen to show the random number balls.
There were only two control assessments left before the end of the design assessment. The atmosphere in the entire auditorium gradually grew to a fever pitch.
Now that they had reached the last test, most of the students’ test scores were final.
As for the matter of talent distribution, it was enough for those entrepreneurs to fight over it.
Zhou Jinlong slowly raised his head and stared at the number ball that was rolling on the screen. He thought to himself, ‘What was the probability of Wu Mo appearing in the second round?’
