Jiang Wuyue cautioned, "But don't celebrate too early; once you progress to the finals, there will truly be a difficult road ahead. There are eight major competition regions, and 32 participants from each region progress to the finals, which makes a total of 256 participants. Those are all the elite Soul Masters that the major competition regions have to offer, so you better make sure you don't get eliminated in the first round!"
Tang Wulin scoffed, "You should be worrying about yourself! The first three rounds of the finals are all elimination rounds that'll narrow all of the participants down to the top 32. The top 32 will then be split up into four groups for round-robin matches, further narrowing it down to the top 16. After that, there will be more elimination rounds until the final champion emerges. The first three elimination rounds are definitely going to be the most difficult to endure. At that point, a major element of luck is involved, and it's very easy to be eliminated if one were to come up against a powerful opponent.
"Also, I heard that they're conducting a test of stamina by holding the first three rounds on three consecutive days! Only after the Soul Master battles have concluded will the mecha battles take place, so there's a very good chance that someone will be eliminated in the finals during the first three rounds. Only those who make it into the top 32 will begin to receive prizes. I have to admit that the federation is the biggest greedy money-grabber I've ever seen!"

Tang Wulin rolled his eyes in response. "This is why it's important for kids to stay in school; haven't you seen the competition rules? The rules of the finals stipulate that the system will avoid pairing up participants from the same competition region during the first three elimination rounds. There's only a chance for us to face one another during the round-robin stage."
Jiang Wuyue immediately heaved a massive sigh of relief. "Is that true? That's fantastic news for me! Haha! I have nothing to worry about, then. Let's eat."
Ever since he began dining with Tang Wulin, he had als
