Chapter 422 - Decisive Battle!!!
Soaring Angel, Mad Blade, and the others were chatting leisurely on the hilltop overseeing the battlefield. They were confident no mishaps would occur in this war. Even if they suffered some losses, as long as the Armoured Catapults remained in one piece, they could preserve their superiority.
At this moment, word came that a.s.skickers United was mounting one last charge inside the Cripps Stronghold. Furthermore, Sapphire Shrine and Holy Empire were also showing signs of movement, with roughly 100,000 of their players moving to surround the battlefield.
"a.s.skickers United is preparing for a final push. Get ready, everyone! What happens next will decide the outcome of the war! Protect the Armoured Catapults at all costs. Make sure they don't fall!" Soaring Angel ordered.
"Have Victorious Return and Radiant Sacred Flame intercept Holy Empire and Sapphire Shrine!" Mad Blade ordered. "Alliance of Mages and Divine Protectors are also sending over more reinforcements!" A hint of excitement flashed across his face. Thanks to the pressure from Cao Xu, Alliance of Mages and Divine Protectors were finally forced to take action.
Before Mad Blade could finish speaking, a deafening explosion rang out all the way over from the highest watchtower in the Cripps Stronghold. It was so loud everything else in the surroundings was drowned out, including the Armoured Catapults.
Soaring Angel's face paled as he turned to the source of the sound and saw a red hot round sh.e.l.l whistling through the air, heading straight for the Armoured Catapults!
「Sssshblam!」The round sh.e.l.l was slightly off-target and smashed into the side of one of the Armoured Catapults, setting it on fire and sending wood splinters and metal fragments flying everywhere. It then continued rolling and swept up several dozen players.
The nearby players on the side of Bloodl.u.s.t Blades descended into chaos.
"Someone put out the flames! Cast water magic!"
A jet of water blasted the Armoured Catapult and doused the fire.
The Goblin Magic Cannon had dealt heavy damage to the Armoured Catapult, which was basically half-destroyed. The wooden frame was badly broken, and one of the wheels was smashed to pieces.
"It's a Magic Cannon!" Soaring Angel had an ugly expression on his face after spotting the cannon muzzle poking out from the highest watchtower in the Cripps Stronghold. "Dammit! Pull back the Armoured Catapults!"
He never expected a.s.skickers United to come out with something like a Goblin Magic Cannon. Even the lowest ranking ones had a range in the excess of 1,000 meters, greatly exceeding that of any Armoured Catapult!
Nothing was more important right now than getting the Armoured Catapults out of the battlefield as quickly as possible. Any delay might result in their destruction, then the outcome of the war would be a foregone conclusion.
At the command of Soaring Angel, two of the Armoured Catapults were slowly withdrawn from the battlefield. The remaining one was still in good enough condition to fire. But the attack by the Goblin Magic Cannon destroyed one of its wheels, rendering it immobile.
All of Bloodl.u.s.t Blades' forces started retreating.
At the highest watchtower in the Cripps Stronghold. Bladelight was supervising the players operating the Goblin Magic Cannon.
"Fire another shot! Don't let the Armoured Catapults get away! Aim for the wheels!"
"Stop! Let the Goblin Magic Cannon cool down for at least 30 seconds, or else it'll blow up from overheating!" a Tinkerer warned.
Listening to the Tinkerer, they could only helplessly wait.
After 30 seconds pa.s.sed, two Warriors lifted up a round sh.e.l.l and inserted it into the bore of the Goblin Magic Cannon. They looked toward Bloodl.u.s.t Blades' forces. The two Armoured Catapults had retreated quite far away.
The players started calibrating the elevation and angle. None of them had operated a Goblin Magic Cannon before, so they looked b.u.mbling and clumsy. Even so, though they were far from being an experienced artillery crew, they were doing pretty well for their first time.
It wasn't long before they aligned the Goblin Magic Cannon with the second Armoured Catapult.
「Boom!」A long tongue of flame shot out from the muzzle as a round sh.e.l.l flew toward the distant battlefield.
Since the two Armoured Catapults were constantly moving, the round sh.e.l.l was off-mark and landed into the surrounding crowd, instantly killing more than 100 enemy players.
The round sh.e.l.l didn't simply stop after landing. It continued rolling for about 50 meters, sweeping away everything along the way and leaving behind a trail of corpses in its wake.
Although the Goblin Magic Cannon failed to hit the Armoured Catapults, the attack still served as a heavy deterrent to the forces of Bloodl.u.s.t Blades. With the Goblin Magic Cannon present, the Armoured Catapults couldn't approach anywhere within a 1,000 meter radius of the Cripps Stronghold.
As the situation in the Cripps Stronghold settled down, the gates opened and the players from a.s.skickers United came surging out. Like a tiger descending the mountain, they rushed straight for the enemy.
"Slaughter those b.a.s.t.a.r.ds!"
"Long live a.s.skickers United!"
"Let's start a bloodbath!"
A chaotic battle broke out as the forces from both sides collided head-on. Some places were still b.o.o.bytrapped by Thunderstorm Mines, which exploded with lightning energy when the players from a.s.skickers United ran over them.
However, a.s.skickers United's momentum couldn't be stopped. They pressed toward the Armoured Catapults without regard for their own lives.
As the two undamaged Armoured Catapults beat a hasty retreat, the stranded one launched five explosive sh.e.l.ls into the oncoming forces from a.s.skickers United, instantly wiping out nearly 100 players.
"Warriors, advance! Mages, destroy that Armoured Catapult!"
The several hundred elites guarding the Armoured Catapult started clas.h.i.+ng with the forces of a.s.skickers United.
"f.u.c.k these suicidal b.a.s.t.a.r.ds!" a Great Mage from Divine Protectors cried out as he cast one areof-effect spell after another. He had already killed more than 500 players of a.s.skickers United, but they just kept swarming forward like an unending horde.
Even a famed general could be overwhelmed by a mob!
The forces of a.s.skickers United blitzed through the battlefield with unstoppable momentum.
At this time, the Great Mage sensed magic fluctuations in the vicinity. He looked toward the source, spotting a Level 47 Elementalist with staff raised chanting Meteor Drop.
"Dammit! Stop that Elementalist!"
All his spells were on cooldown, and everyone else was barely fending off the unrelenting a.s.sault from the players of a.s.skickers United! They were helpless to stop the Elementalist!
「Bang!」A giant meteor fell from the sky and smashed into the Armoured Catapult as a fiery explosion engulfed the Bloodl.u.s.t Blades players in the surroundings. The Armoured Catapult was wrecked.
Even though Armoured Catapults could unleash untold amounts of destruction, they were relatively fragile, made out of wood reinforced with thin metal plates.
The Great Mage guarding the Armoured Catapult was also swallowed up by the inferno.
A famous Great Mage from Divine Protectors had died to the hands of an unknown Elementalist in a.s.skickers United.
"Good job, Lil' Dong!"
"Everybody, charge! Don't leave a single one of them alive!"
Morale was soaring.
One of the Armoured Catapults was destroyed beyond repair, and the remaining two were frantically retreating, unable to stop the advance of a.s.skickers United's forces.
After another 30 seconds pa.s.sed, the Goblin Magic Cannon fired once more. The round sh.e.l.l landed just a meter away from one of the Armoured Catapults, burying 30 players in the dirt, among whom six were top ranking elites from Alliance of Mages and Divine Protectors.
Even if they were elites, no matter how high their defense was, none of of them could withstand the might of the Goblin Magic Cannon.
Even a Great Fighter hunkering down with a greats.h.i.+eld would still be blasted into smithereens.
As the forces of Bloodl.u.s.t Blades were in full retreat, the two Armoured Catapults had finally left the range of the Goblin Magic Cannon.
"First and Second Division, stop them!" Mad Blade anxiously commanded. He never thought they would be overrun so quickly.
At this moment, more than 1,000 elites from a.s.skickers United led by Nie Yan charged down from the foothills behind Bloodl.u.s.t Blades' forces.
The Warriors rushed down the slopes like a tidal wave.
"Brothers, victory belongs to a.s.skickers United! Bloodl.u.s.t Blades, Divine Protectors, Alliance of Mages, or Angel Corps, we'll send all those b.a.s.t.a.r.ds straight to h.e.l.l! From this day forth we stand as one. Bound are our paths. So too our souls! Till our presence is in all. For our glory is our life!" Nie Yan's fighting spirit was also ignited.
The a.s.skickers United elites rushed forward eagerly, hot on the heels of the retreating forces of Bloodl.u.s.t Blades.
After noticing they were being pincered, Soaring Angel still remained calm and gave out orders. More than 1,000 elites from Bloodl.u.s.t Blades, Divine Protectors, Alliance of Mages, and Angel Corps charged forward to meet Nie Yan's group of elites head-on. Mad Blade also mobilized over 10,000 players into a solid battle formation, repelling the forces coming from the Cripps Stronghold.
The two Armoured Catapults in the distance turned around, firing a volley of flaming projectiles that slaughtered more than a thousand of a.s.skickers United's weaker members.
After moving out of the Goblin Magic Cannon's range, the Armoured Catapults were still frightening existences on the battlefield.
Disregarding their lives, the players from a.s.skickers United kept charging towards the Armoured Catapults. Even though they were beaten back time and time again, they would still horrifically press forward, unafraid of death, with unrelenting tenacity.
Like this, the battle once more entered a stalemate.
