The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 102.1
Chapter 102: Going Too Far
After all the jadeite that had been delivered from Kulta was checked one by one, Lin Luo led everyone out of the warehouse. All the jadeite above medium level was sent to the Stone Cutting Department, where experienced stone cutting masters would be responsible for cutting them piece by piece.
The cut jade would be sent to the Energy Department in batches after each piece had their crystal structure, clarity, color, size and weight registered. Lin Luo would then go on to allocate the jade according to the abilities of his energy engineers. These energy engineers were all certified as mid-rank energy engineers, and the Energy Administration had helped to verify their identities and resumes. The number of energy engineers was scarce, and their worth was higher, so Lin Luo wasn’t worried that they would be bought by Xing Shang. Additionally, Lin Luo knew what purity of element liquid they could extract. If they had any bad ideas, he would definitely be able to find out before they became an issue.
Now that the review was over, most of the stone gambling experts had gone home to rest. Only He Kun relied on his good relationship with Lin Luo to follow Lin Luo to his office cheekily.
After He Kun entered Lin Luo’s office, he couldn’t help but asked, “Xiao Luo, just let it go.”
He was really going to be pissed off by those shameless people in the Xing family. He already knew that the rumors of treason that had been raging on StarNet before were the work of those despicable and shameless villains. Unexpectedly, it hadn’t taken long after those people stopped before they started to make trouble again! Although PengCheng Energy Company would definitely sue them for malicious competition, even if they won the lawsuit, they would only receive some compensation. They wouldn’t relieve their anger at all!
“Of course I’m not saying we should just leave it like that.” Clay figurines still have three points of anger, not to mention that Lin Luo wasn’t a clay figurine at all. Those people from the Xing family had repeatedly targeted Xing Mo without regard to blood relationship, which was really cruel.
“I plan to do something about it.” Lin Luo’s black eyes seemed to ignite a fire.
He Kun rarely saw Lin Luo that angry, so he couldn’t help but ask cautiously, “What are you going to do?”
“I want to make appointments for a few challenges.”
“Challenges?! With whom?” He Kun’s eyes widened in astonishment.
“You’ll know soon.” Lin Luo smiled mysteriously.
It didn’t take long before An ZiHao knocked on the door and came in. He hesitated a little when he saw He Kun, but after Lin Luo nodded, he walked in calmly.
“President Lin, I have discussed the litigation matters with the Legal Department, and they will implement it as soon as possible. This is the list you wanted.” An ZiHao said, sending an electronic document through to Lin Luo’s light brain.
Lin Luo opened the document, and after a quick glance, he clicked on the official StarNet site of the Stone Gambling Association.
He first went and took a look at his own personal information.
【Name: Lin Luo】
【Record: 2 wins, 0 draws and 0 losses】
【Win rate: 100%】
【Registration Date: July 4, 1522 IC】
He only needed another 88 points to be promoted to the advanced rank.
Lin Luo exited out of his information page and entered a string of information in the search interface of the official StarNet site. After a person’s name popped up, Lin Luo checked the other party’s information for a bit, then smiled and chose to challenge him.
The person he was going to challenge was named Liang Chao, who was currently ranked 758th in the advanced ranking bracket of the Stone Gambling Tournament. Liang Chao was also the chief stone gambling consultant of Xing’s Energy Company.
Lin Luo won a lot of points by relying on the Seven-Stars Gambling Gathering on Siniya and his outstanding performance in the Vermi Open Auction. Due to those events, he managed to jump from the bottom of the barrel at the junior level to the 15th place in the intermediate level. Compared with the advanced ranked Liang Chao though, he was still in a lower position.
The points rules of the Stone Gambling Tournament encouraged fair and healthy competition between players. As such, lower-ranking contestants could challenge opponents of the same or higher rank to gain rank points. Lin Luo’s current rank was lower than Liang Chao, which fit the challenge. If this Liang Chao’s rank is lower than him, then he might have had even more trouble.
After Lin Luo submitted his challenge request, the Stone Gambling Association would soon forward his challenge request along to Liang Chao. He only needed to wait for Liang Chao to reply.
Lin Luo was confident that Liang Chao wouldn’t refuse his challenge. After all, if a player in a higher rank challenged a lower rank, it would be considered maliciously and deliberately bullying others. When a lower rank challenged a senior rank though, it was considered a bold move of someone who dared to take risks.
That was because the rank gap usually also represented their strength gap. If Liang Chao refused, he would be seen as a coward who ran from a fight. That wasn’t the kind of news that anyone would find pleasant to hear. Not to mention that the two of them had special identities. Liang Chao, as the chief stone gambling expert of Xing’s Energy Company, certainly couldn’t submit to the chief stone gambling expert of their rival PengCheng Energy Company.
Sure enough, Lin Luo quickly received a reply and saw that Liang Chao had agreed to his challenge request.
