Pang Ze looked at Xu Jingming. “Before entering Blood Rain World, you have to make some preparations. The first thing is to learn the universal language, and the second is to carefully study the information on Blood Rain World. After all, the price of failure after entering is too high.”
Xu Jingming nodded slightly.
The smallest price for failure was 100,000 cosmic dollars. The longer one stayed inside, the more one couldn’t afford to fail. For example, if one accumulated more than a thousand gold and was killed for it, their savings would be zeroed out. The network of connections they had worked hard to establish
would also be gone. After all, if they paid to enter again, they would be another person. They had to start all over again.
“Is seven days enough?” Pang Ze asked.
“Yes.” Xu Jingming nodded.
“Alright, we’ll meet at 9 p.m. seven days later.” Pang Ze nodded. “T’l help you to get a mission when the time comes.”
“Thank you, Mr. Pang.” Xu Jingming was still very grateful. The other party didn’t charge him any fees to devise a strategy.
Pang Ze nodded and left. He naturally had matters to attend to.
Xu Jingming looked at the material in his hand and carefully studied it. He finished reading it after some time.
According to the description, the goals for entering Blood Rain World is firstly to hone one’s mind and combat techniques, secondly to experience different worlds, and thirdly, to receive the opportunity in the mysterious land. After Xu Jingming finished reading, he temporarily put it to the side and began
learning the universal language.
Although he could automatically translate his Chinese into universal language through ‘real-time translations,’ everyone spoke the universal language in the virtual world! If only he relied on ‘translations,’ his mouth and voice wouldn’t sync. Cosmic citizens might not mind it and would only mock him in
secret, but it would incur the suspicion of the Blood Rain World natives
‘Why was the language this person spoke completely different from the way his mouth moved?
Cosmic lifeforms have really good memory. Xu Jingming first memorized the common words used in universal language. I can read ten lines at a glance; I have a photographic memory!
If a Perfected planetary lifeform’s brain was much better than an unevolved brain, then becoming a cosmic lifeform was a qualitative change!
Xu Jingming swept his gaze and memorized more than 100 universal common vocabulary! He kept flipping through them and memorized more than 100,000 words in just 15 minutes.
It’s enough to memorize this amount of universal language vocabulary. Next, I have to familiarize myself with the language. Xu Jingming watched teaching videos of the universal language and quickly picked it up.
Three hours later, Xu Jingming became very proficient in the universal language.
According to the system’s judgment, my universal language is already very close to native level. In the future, I just need to practice for an hour a day to have it down to a tee. Xu Jingming stopped learning the language. Let’s see the difference between the virtual world’s Life Evolution world and Earth’s.
In the morning.
Xu Jingming strolled with his pregnant wife.
“How’s the virtual world network?” Li Miaomiao was curious.
“The virtual world on Earth is mainly a ‘Life Evolution’ gaming world,” Xu Jingming said with a smile. “As for the virtual world network in the universe, it has countless virtual worlds with all kinds of uses. There’s also a ‘Life Evolution’ gaming world, but it has many more functions. The simulated experts
are more intelligent, and the experts from the various cosmic civilizations participating in the battle are even harder to deal with. I won three consecutive matches before I started having a 50% win-loss ratio.”
“50% win-loss ratio?” Li Miaomiao was surprised. “Our number one expert on Earth has found his match?”
“I fought a total of 22 matches yesterday and fought to my heart’s content. My win rate is about 55%.” Xu Jingming was very happy. “In the past, I was a frog in a well. Only now do I understand… In the vast universe, I’m only an ordinary cosmic citizen.”
Li Miaomiao looked at her spouse. “Jingming, you’re not ordinary! You just entered the virtual world and started practicing the evolutionary method less than a year ago! You’ll be much stronger than them in ten or twenty years.”
Xu Jingming was slightly stunned.
The 22 previous matches had taught him a lesson in hubris. After all, everyone in the game world was a cosmic citizen! There were plenty in the Hunter Cosmic Sector who were more proficient in weaponry than Xu Jingming! The moves he was once proud of were very common among cosmic lifeforms.
However, Li Miaomiao’s words boosted Xu Jingming’s confidence.
Yes, he had practiced the evolutionary method for less than a year!
“Tl work hard and make myself stand out in the Hunter Cosmic Sector,” Xu Jingming said with a smile. Due to the time lag, almost everyone he encountered in the virtual world was a cosmic citizen of the Hunter Cosmic Sector.
Only for special reasons would cosmic citizens from different cosmic sectors contact each other.
A time lag made chatting very awkward! It took a long time before the other party replied.
“Yeah, I believe in you.” Li Miaomiao continued strolling with Xu Jingming.
Seven days later, at 9 p.m. in the virtual world.
Xu Jingming and Pang Ze met again.
“How’s your spearmanship training these days? All five ultimate moves as a planetary lifeform have reached Transcendent, right?” Pang Ze asked with a smile.
“Yes.” Xu Jingming nodded. “Tm currently studying Beam Transformation’s first cosmic lifeform volume and have also gained some insights.”
After discovering that he improved the fastest with Water Style, Xu Jingming began spending the most effort on it.
“Tve never doubted your talent,” Pang Ze praised. “Let’s go. I’ll take you to the intermediary corporation first.”
With that said, Pang Ze tapped open a virtual world. “Let’s go.”
Two streams of light flew into the virtual world at the same time.
After entering, he saw dense streams of light land.
“This is the largest intermediary corporation in the Hunter Cosmic Sector—Myriad Worlds Group.” Pang Ze and Xu Jingming landed on the crystalline ground as the former said, “They do almost all kinds of intermediary businesses you can think of. They also have businesses in the other cosmic sectors, so
their credibility is unquestionable.”
Xu Jingming nodded slightly.
“For example, if I want to find a mission for Blood Rain World—” Pang Ze tapped the interface floating beside him gently and swiped for Blood Rain World’s missions.
‘There were many missions.
“What’s your actual combat bonus now?” Pang Ze asked.
“More than 600%,” Xu Jingming said. After breaking through with all five ultimate moves and gaining insights into the cosmic lifeform content, his actual combat bonus had indeed broken through.
“Very good.” Pang Ze smiled and nodded.
After adding some filters, many missions began to disappear. “Mission Period: Less than three months.”
“Hiring Fee: Greater than 500,000.”
Pang Ze added one restriction after another, and the number of missions kept decreasing until there were only nine missions left.
Pang Ze opened them one by one and checked them. At the same time, he said to Xu Jingming, “You can do it yourself in the future—just choose a mission like I did. Of course… As your manager, it’s best if you discuss it with me before making any important decisions. I’ll also give you some suggestions.”
Xu Jingming nodded.
“Take a look. How are these three missions?” Pang Ze swiped out the three mission requirements. “I think they’re all not bad.”
Xu Jingming swept his gaze and chose the one that paid the most.
“This shall be it,” Xu Jingming said.
“Tap here and select the mission,” Pang Ze said.
Xu Jingming tapped gently.
A purple-robed man appeared and smiled at Xu Jingming. “Welcome, we are honored to serve you at Myriad Worlds Group. Xu Jingming, please come up with an alias for all future business matters.”
“Sometimes, it isn’t suitable using your real name when taking on intermediary missions,” Pang Ze explained.
“An alias is only a code name. Words, numbers, and symbols will do,” the purple-robed man said.
“Have it as Jing,” Xu Jingming said.
The purple-robed man nodded slightly. “The hiring fee for this mission is 600,000 cosmic dollars. 50% will be paid in advance, and the rest will be paid after the mission is completed. Please appear punctually at 10:09 in Blood Rain World’s Lanyue City, 100 meters outside the eastern gates. When that
happens, a contact will appear. The contact’s appearance is…”
A woman’s projection appeared beside him.
Xu Jingming nodded slightly.
“Just walk close to her and say the word ‘Jing,’ In the next three months, you have to ensure that you are online at least 12 hours a day! You only have two missions: protect and kill,” the purple-robed man said. “I’l also inform the hirer of your appearance! Do you need to change your appearance?”
Pang Ze shook his head slightly, and Xu Jingming said, “There’s no need.”
“Do you need to change the meeting time?” the purple-robed man asked.
“10:09 it is.” Xu Jingming nodded.
Soon, Xu Jingming and Pang Ze left the Myriad Worlds Group. At the same time, the 300,000 cosmic dollars he received in advance had been credited into his account.
“You aren’t famous in the universe, so there’s no need to change your appearance. After all, it’s just accepting a mission. There’s nothing to hide,” Pang Ze said. “Moreover, constantly hiding your identity will affect your mind to a certain extent.”
Xu Jingming nodded slightly.
“Of course, some people whose public identities aren’t appropriate for exposure will choose to hide their identity,” Pang Ze said. “In the virtual world, everyone can easily change their appearance.”
“Understood.” Xu Jingming nodded.
“One last suggestion.” Pang Ze looked at Xu Jingming. “When heading to a new place, you have to understand the operating rules of the new place first. You have to follow the rules and integrate into it! You have to learn how to take advantage of the situation! While weak, going against the tide will only
Xu Jingming nodded. “I understand. Thank you, Mr. Pang.”
“See you when your mission ends.” Pang Ze smiled and disappeared.
Only then did Xu Jingming choose ‘Blood Rain World’ from countless virtual worlds. With a light tap, 100,000 cosmic dollars was deducted, and his account immediately reduced from 1.3 million cosmic dollars to 1.2 million.
Xu Jingming immediately entered Blood Rain World..
