The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 132.1
Chapter 132: Stone Gambling Tournament 1
Time passed quickly, and one year passed in the blink of an eye, and the people of the Empire ushered in the latest gathering of the Stone Gambling Tournament.
The Stone Gambling Tournament was a large-scale event held once every three years in the Empire which lasted for a full month. Almost all stone gambling players in the Empire would choose to participate in the stone gambling event.
Cantley, the emerald capital, as the venue for the stone gambling competition was already overly crowder before the event even started. In addition to the stone gamblers who came to participate in the game, there were also many stone gamblers who came to watch the game, as well as a large number of jadeite merchants who came to sell jadeite while more and more people were flooding to Cantley.
Naturally Lin Luo and Han XinYuan were among the most watched players.
Lin Luo was the youngest and most legendary talented player in the history of the Empire. In the past year he had accumulated a large number of rank points by participating in two stone gambling battles as a dark horse and managed to break into the master rank in one fell swoop, which was something that had rarely seen before.
Han XinYuan was also a young and talented person who had been born in a family of stone gamblers. In the last stone gambling competition he successfully entered the professional rank and achieved very good results. Before Lin Luo appeared he had always been the male god in the eyes of the people of the empire.
People thought he would become rivals with Lin Luo, but no one would have thought that he would join Lin Luo’s company with his younger brother where the two of them would become his right and left hands. Han XinYuan had also stated in public many times that Lin Luo was also a mentor and friend of his, which could be regarded as an indirect recognition that Lin Luo’s stone gambling strength was superior to his.
During this past year, he had also accumulated a lot of points and successfully entered the master rank and even managed to rank higher than Lin Luo. However, the current ranking didn’t represent their true strengths. The current points were just the pre-match ranking, and the specific rankings wouldn’t be known until after the game started.
Han XinYu was also set to participate in the competition, but it was his first time doing so. Although he also had good strength, he couldn’t compare to a genius like Lin Luo. His points only got him into the professional rank, but that was already a very good result for a first-time participant.
He Kun, Xu Jian, and Zhao XiaoLei also participated in the competition. They had studied from Lin Luo over the year and made considerable progress. They entered the advanced rank steadily wherein they ranked very high.
The Stone Gambling Tournament was divided into groups according to different ranks. The top five winners in each rank would be qualified to participate in the next rank. Therefore, if they performed well, they still had the opportunity to participate in the professional rank competition.
Lin Luo, Han XinYuan and others belong to the same company, so they just set off together. They arrived at Cantley three days early, and just after they got off the shuttle they had already caused quite a commotion. After all, Lin Luo was now considered an existence that everyone in the entire Empire knew about.
“Xiao Luo! Xiao Luo!” Many people called out to Lin Luo from a distance, shouting out his name. At a glance it could be seen that they were Lin Luo’s fans. It could be seen that the male to female ratio of his fan base was quite balanced.
“Han XinYuan! Han XinYuan! We love you!” Han XinYuan’s fans were mostly girls who screamed endlessly.
Lin Luo and Han XinYuan both smiled and waved as a greeting, then left in the direction of the safe passage under the escort of the staff who had specially come to pick them up the contestants.
“Wow! Did you see that? Xiao Luo blushed just now!”
“Yeah, yes! Even his ears were red! It was so cute! I really want to take him home and raise him!”
“I also took a video and will post it on my social media in a bit!”
“Ha ha ha, I want it too! Send me a copy!”
Han XinYuan’s fans were holding their blushing faces as their hearts beat rapidly.
“Han Xin looks really handsome from far and near!”
“I really want to give him a monkey!”
The totally different styles of the two fan groups made people laugh.
The group left the airport in a suspended vehicle arranged by the organizer.
“Wow, why are there so many people? They’re all here to participate in the Stone Gambling Tournament?” He Kun looked at the dense crowd on the street under the vehicle, and his eyes widened in surprise.
“Of course. There are no fewer than 20,000 contestants alone, not to mention spectators and stone gambling enthusiasts who want to come to watch the game.” The staff replied with a smile, “When the last stone gambling competition was held, there were millions of people in attendance. This time, with the two of you, Master Lin and Master Han, naturally there will only be more people.”
He wasn’t trying to deliberately flatter Lin Luo and Han XinYuan, but was simply stating a fact. After all, the two of them have quite a large number of fans, especially Lin Luo. In addition to being a stone gambler, he was also an energy master. The number of fans on his social media platform had exceeded 200 million, so it could truthfully be said that he was the most popular player in this iteration of the Stone Gambling Tournament.
