Chapter 34: China’s Ranking

Translator: CKtalon 

Xu Jingming smiled. He knew his limits.

“Miaomiao, he’s recognized as the strongest martial artist in China and one of the three kings of the martial arts world,” Xu Jingming said with a smile. “My strength is only comparable to Gao Chong’s, and my strength is limited. Even if Gao Chong and I join forces, we probably won’t be able to defeat Senior Lei Yunfang.”

“That exaggerated?” Li Miaomiao was surprised.

“His evolutionary method has reached Advanced, and his footwork is at least at Lv. 3,” Xu Jingming said. He had personally seen the movement technique his master, Liu Hai, showcased.


He had to admit that… Lei Yunfang’s movement technique was even more terrifying!

“Look at Senior Lei Yunfang’s movement technique. He’s charging at the sharpshooter now, but no matter how the sharpshooter shoots, he can’t touch him.” Xu Jingming watched in surprise as Lei Yunfang ran straight for the sharpshooter in the snow.

He was too fast, and the sharpshooter had no way of escaping. All he could do was fire as he fled.

Of the six consecutive arrows, only the sixth shot—a shot that he delivered from dozens of feet away—barely brushed past Lei Yunfang’s robe. The other arrows didn’t touch him at all!

Lei Yunfang arrived in front of the sharpshooter and dispatched him with a cleave.

“A Divine sharpshooter is nothing but a joke in front of him,” Li Miaomiao exclaimed in surprise.

“Of the three kings of the global martial arts world, Senior Lei Yunfang has the most incredible movement technique. Kai Saint Mills has a monster-like body, and Alan has the most perfect weaponry technique,” Xu Jingming said. “In terms of movement technique, Senior Lei Yunfang is recognized as the number one in the martial arts world’s history!”

“Being the historical number one, he’s far ahead of everyone.” Xu Jingming was very impressed. “Even with the virtual world, it will probably take me some time to reach this level of movement.”

This battle quickly came to an end.

Lei Yunfang soloed and finished off four opponents, and his teammates eventually seized the opportunity to kill the last opponent.

“Senior Lei Yunfang is very impressive,” Li Miaomiao nodded and said, “but it’s the virtual world’s seventh day. Many experts in boxing, kickboxing, and sanda have become familiar with weaponry and are beginning to demonstrate their strength. Moreover, many female Divine experts have appeared, as well as many experts from the common populace.”

“It has only been seven days, but all kinds of people have showcased themselves,” Li Miaomiao said. “I believe that more and more experts will rise with time. The so-called ‘three kings’ of the global martial arts world are a product of the past. Seven billion people are in competition! I predict that… only one of the three kings will remain in the global top ten a year from now.”

Xu Jingming smiled and applauded. “Miaomiao, you’re right.”

“Even now, there might be people in the world who are better than the three of them,” Li Miaomiao said. “After all, who knows what kind of monster will appear in the world?”

“Oh right, there’s something new today.” Li Miaomiao immediately changed the projection to show a video.

“This is the popular influencer, Fairy Wang. She created a ranking of China’s Divine.” Li Miaomiao fast-forwarded the video to the rankings.

“China’s Divine ranking?” Xu Jingming asked.

“Although this ranking is controversial, it still has some referential value,” Li Miaomiao said. “It’s the experts ranking deduced from all the Divine matches available. For example, your ranking is two places higher than Gao Chong.”

“Fairy Wang pushed out this ranking list the moment Senior Lei Yunfang’s battle ended. This video has over 100 million views and is very popular,” Li Miaomiao said. Compared to Xu Jingming who was focused on cultivation, Li Miaomiao was more concerned about the various matters—both major and minor—in the virtual world.

“You’re very well-informed. I get to learn a lot of gossip from you every night at dinner,” Xu Jingming said with a smile.

“The virtual world is very important. I got Sister Kong and Xiaozeng to help collect all the important news,” Li Miaomiao said. “Quickly take a look at the rankings and make some comments about whether it’s fair. Look, she placed your master, Liu Hai, first!”

Xu Jingming looked at the rankings—there were a total of 36 people on it.

1st: Liu Hai (Possesses the most perfect technique that I’ve ever seen. I believe that after Liu Hai regained his peak body, he’s stronger than the three kings of the martial arts world!)

2nd: Lei Yunfang (One of the three kings of the martial arts world. His movement techniques are the most incredible ones I’ve ever seen.)

3rd: Zhou Yi (The most terrifying sharpshooter, Zhou Yi. He loves archery; he changed his name to Yi when he became an adult. I heard that after he retired from the national team, he lived in the mountains for many years to practice archery and has long become obsessed with archery. He had shown the world how terrifying archers are in close combat with his strafing!)

Xu Jingming nodded when he saw this. “Zhou Yi is indeed a monster. With a bow and arrow in hand, he can instantly kill five Divine experts from 50 meters as they charge at him.”

“He’s too fast with his arrows,” Li Miaomiao said. “His movement is also fast. He managed to fire a few arrows while moving at high speeds! Moreover, he was very accurate.”

He dared to wait until five Divine enemies were within 50 meters of him before firing, and he even killed all of them!

“I’m quite agreeable with the top three of this ranking.” Xu Jingming continued reading the ranking.

4th: Tie Lianyun (Won the most number of world champions at the World Martial Arts Tournament for China, but he rose only after the three kings’ retirement. He has also lost to more than one contestant in the Martial Arts Tournament. The global martial arts world’s evaluation of him is that he’s inferior to the three kings. In the past seven days, he appears to be slightly inferior to Liu Hai and Lei Yunfang from his eight Divine matches. However, his weaponry techniques are very comprehensive, and he is violent with his shield and ax. He won seven out of eight Divine matches, and he was the one who carried the team to victory. This also demonstrates his strength.)

5th: Xiong Tianshan (China’s greatest boxing champion has been a world boxing champion for five weight classes. After choosing shield and ax as weapons, his strength improved rapidly. In the latest battle, he fought Tie Lianyun in a battle of the titans to prove his strength. In that battle, he held back Tie Lianyun… Finally, he led the team to victory. Although his weaponry techniques are slightly inferior to Tie Lianyun, his leadership is better than Tie Lianyun. It also gave Tie Lianyun his only failure in the virtual world.)

“Xiong Tianshan.” Xu Jingming had watched the livestream. “As expected of the great boxing champion. After becoming familiar with the shield and ax, he could match Senior Brother Tie and even lead a team to victory.”

“That battle was exciting. Tie Lianyun clearly had the advantage in the one-on-one battle, but Xiong Tianshan led the team to victory,” Li Miaomiao said with a smile. “I feel like Tie Lianyun’s intelligence was left in the dust. People believe that… as long as Xiong Tianshan is given time to continue improving his weaponry techniques, he will completely surpass Tie Lianyun in the future.”

Xu Jingming nodded and continued reading.

6th: Zhang Qing (The undefeated goddess of the women’s martial arts world. She took first place three times in a row and retired because she met no match. In the virtual world, she used her two swords to defeat Gao Chong and Yang Yu head-on. She also had an advantage when fighting Xu Jingming. Moreover, Zhang Qing’s dual sword techniques are too beautiful! I even believe that Zhang Qing will one day enter China’s top three!)

7th: Xu Jingming (Doubly skilled in both spear and shield—he can be of great use in a team. He participated in 15 Divine matches, and he won 13 times and lost twice! His clash with many Divine experts completely proved his strength. Gao Chong and Yang Yu lost to Xu Jingming in a one-on-one battle. It’s expected that he comes in 7th! Moreover, he’s the youngest in the top ten. I feel that… he has a limitless future!)

8th: Yang Yu (He was champion of the World Martial Arts Tournament, and his dual spear techniques are incomparably brilliant. His movements were like the wind, and his dual spears could kill his enemies like ghosts. But he was defeated by Zhang Qing, Xu Jingming, and Tie Lianyun, so he’s placed eighth.)

9th: Gao Chong (He was champion of the World Martial Arts Tournament, but as Hercules, he remains violent and ferocious. In fact, there was no clear winner between him and Yang Yu. It was just that Yang Yu was more agile and was more helpful in team battles, so Gao Chong is ranked 9th.)

10th: Liu Jianfeng (This 97-year-old grandpa is the most terrifying assassin in all the Divine battles in China to date! Many Divine sharpshooters died at his hands—even Zhou Yi had to resort to a tri-shot when facing him! Grandpa Liu Jianfeng failed to dodge and was killed up-close. As he’s slightly inferior in frontal combat, I place him in tenth place. However, I’m a fan of Grandpa Liu Jianfeng! Grandpa’s assassinations are too cool!)

The rankings gave simple explanations.

36th: Wu Sai (The first Divine match of the virtual world’s launch is definitely Wu Sai’s battle of shame. He wasn’t proficient with weaponry techniques and lacked combat experience. He won solely from being carried. Over time, we have seen Wu Sai rapidly grow in terms of combat experience. This proves that he has a good foundation, considering how he cleared the preliminaries and reached Divine on the first day. After the elevation of his technique and experience, I believe it’s still very fair for him to be ranked 36th.)

Xu Jingming nodded slightly after seeing the entire list.

“Any thoughts?” Li Miaomiao asked.

“It’s rather fair.” Xu Jingming nodded. He was indeed inferior to Zhang Qing during his battle with him.

Xu Jingming believed that Zhang Qing was probably China’s most proficient swordsman. Her dual sword techniques were beautiful and dangerous, so he was forced to prioritize defense.

For example, Yang Yu and Gao Chong—those with weaker defense than Xu Jingming—were killed by Zhang Qing in one-on-one combat.

“It’s only been seven days. The rankings will definitely be more exciting in a month.” Li Miaomiao suddenly noticed the time. “Wow, it’s already 8:55 p.m. The mission space is going to be released.”

The virtual world was divided into three parts: personal space, mission space, and combat space.

According to the official announcements, the mission space would officially launch at 9 p..m today.
