it was possible that Zhao Yueur could rank among the top five, it was only a possibility.
If she were unlucky, she might encounter an expert that could counter her combat method in the next round and eliminate her.

Unfortunately, while Crimson Fox’s hope was nice, the reality was far from it.
As the competition progressed, Zhao Yueru secured impressive victories during her sixth and seventh matches, making her way into the quarter-finals.
She was only one round away from ranking among the top four competitors.

In contrast, Crimson Castle’s progress halted in the seventh round.
In the end, the Guild only racked up 630 points.

With that score, Crimson Castle could easily rank among the Black Dragon Empire’s top ten Guilds.
To Crimson Castle, it was a result worth celebrating.
However, Crimson Fox, Crimson Castle’s Guild Leader, felt no joy.
After all, as long as Zhao Yueru won her next match, Crimson Castle’s fate in Hidden Fog Town would meet its end.

If Crimson Castle couldn’t take control of Hidden Fog Town, the threat it posed to Zero Wing would decrease drastically.
If that happened, Nine Dragons Emperor would turn away from the Guild.
Without Nine Dragons Emperor’s support, Crimson Castle’s dream of becoming a first-rate Guild would remain a dream.
After all, Crimson Castle was relatively weak among the second-rate Guilds.
A titan like the Dragon-Phoenix Pavilion only offered support due to its threat to Zero Wing.

Please, don’t let her pass! Crimson Fox silently prayed as he watched the screen above the stage.

At the end of each round, the system would randomly generate pairings for the new fight.

Seeing the player IDs flicker on the virtual screen, Crimson Fox’s heart began to pound.

Once the quarter-finals’ pairings were determined, he was ecstatic.

“Wonderful! The heavens haven’t forsaken Crimson Castle!” Crimson Fox was overjoyed when he saw that the first match was a fight between Zhao Yueru and Yan Tianxing.

As long as Crimson Castle won its bet with Zero Wing, its status as a first-rate Guild was guaranteed.

A first-rate Guild! Countless Guilds dreamed of achieving such glory.

“The Flame Witch is in danger now.
Yan Tianxing ranks second among Assassins and is known for his speed.
The Flame Witch won’t be able to execute her combination attack so easily against him.”

“Even if the Flame Witch loses, she’ll have nothing to be ashamed of.
After all, she has a class disadvantage.”

“But Yan Tianxing’s win isn’t certain.
It isn’t so easy to close in on an Elementalist who can triple-casting.
If his timing isn’t right when he closes in on the Flame Witch, he might die instantly.
The Flame Witch’s damage is no laughing matter.
She even instant-killed a Shield Warrior will full HP and Shield Wall active.
Killing a glass cannon like Yan Tianxing would be a piece of cake for her.”

Everyone cheered and chatted as they watched Zhao Yueru and Yan Tianxing approach to the main stage.

As the timer above the main stage began to count down, Yan Tianxing turned towards Zero Wing’s VIP room and announced, “Guild Leader Black Flame, this humble man has heard that your Guild intends to auction adventure houses in Stone Forest Town! If I win this match, would you allocate a slot for the FFF adventurer team? Of course, if I lose, I will hand over 10,000 Magic Crystals and a treasure map for the Dragon’s Graveyard!”

When Yan Tianxing finished speaking, the venue fell silent, dumbfounded by his bet.

Everyone’s first reaction was to question his intentions.

Shouldn’t he be trying to avenge Yi Luofei? Shouldn’t he have made some valiant remark about defeating Zhao Yueru?

Yet, the FFF’s commander, one of the Black Dragon Empire’s famous top adventurer teams, had just publicly declared his intention of garrisoning in Stone Forest Town…

Garrisoning in Stone Forest Town wouldn’t have been overly surprising.
A top adventurer team occupying a Guild Town was always good news for the Guild, yet based on Yan Tianxing’s request, it seemed as if the right to garrison in Stone Forest Town was extremely precious.
He had even bet 10,000 Magic Crystals and a treasure map for the right!.
The treasure map he had gambled was even related to the Dragon’s Graveyard! This was just ludicrous!
