It was also described to be a tournament with immense significance in the game, but there was hardly any attention on it. But again, theEyes of the Chroniclerwas a gal game and not a fighting game.
Paul’s ass has caused a divergence from the game, which is good news since something is happening, but how will it help me save Astrid?
Roel gave it some thought and eventually concluded that he would probably have to participate in the tournament himself and achieve spectacular results there. It was common knowledge that the winner of the Challenger Cup would receive handsome rewards, and there might just be something amongst the rewards that might be of help to Astrid.
The good thing was that he was definitely eligible to join the Challenger Cup, be it his identity as one of the Ringbearers or his internal ranking amongst the First Grade students. He was currently third place amongst his peers, and he would probably remain so since he wasn’t planning on fighting against the other two ahead of him.
The first place was Nora and the second place was Charlotte.
What was funny about this was that Roel’s third place came about without him fighting a single battle. Ever since the ranked battles started, all of the opponents he challenged surrendered to him without even putting up a fight. Those who didn’t know better would have thought that he had bribed them in advance.
Most of the students had already known about Grandar’s existence by this point, and none of them had the desire to cross blows with that formidable skeleton giant, resulting in a streak of easy wins for Roel. He soared up the internal ranking as if he was riding on a rocket ship, only coming to an abrupt halt when he encountered Nora in the semifinals.
This time around, it was his time to surrender.
He wasn’t the competitive type to get too bothered about rankings anyway, and he wasn’t able to bring himself to fight seriously against Nora due to their personal relationship. Besides, he had no intention of publicly revealing his trump cards. It was with such considerations in mind that he chose to surrender.
What was worth mentioning was the intense fight that broke out between Nora and Charlotte when they met in the finals. In the end, Charlotte was cornered by Nora’s relentless aggression and was forced to admit defeat, thus giving a peaceful conclusion to their fight.
Most students wouldn’t go to the extent of putting their lives on the line for the internal ranking, but the same couldn’t be said about the Challenger Cup. For money, reputation, and a bright future, almost every single fighter would do everything they could to achieve victory.
In order to simulate real-life combat, the Challenger Cup had very little restrictions in terms of means. Even automated offensive magic tools were allowed as well.
