BATCFO Chapter 14

Chi Yu didn’t expect Yun Xingze to counter with such provocation. After a few seconds, his rigid face warped into a grimace as he left with a “Let’s wait and see”. Su Zinan was also frightened, and followed Chi Yu quickly.

“Xingze, you go back and have a good rest.” Lu Ranxu said to Yun Xingze, “You worked hard today.”

Zhuo Feiyue also nodded at Yun Xingze: “You performed very well. Keep at it.”

Yun Xingze’s energy was almost exhausted just now. Taking a deep breath, he got on the flying machine back to school, and decided to go back and have a good meal.

The day after the game ended, Yun Xingze naturally became a sensational figure in Xinghai Military University.

In a certain district on the campus forum, half of it was filled with “Has Luo Wenchuan exerted his true strength this year?”, “Will Luo Wenchuan still set a record next year?”, “Do you think Luo Wenchuan can lead the school team to the semi-finals this year?”, and other such posts.

And the other half is “Is the number one in first grade really an omega?”, “That omega is extraordinary”, “I really don’t believe that omega’s results are better than me”, and so on.

Everyone was arguing about Yun Xingze’s true strength.

“I have watched the video of the audition. Yun Xingze is indeed a tactical genius, but there is no guarantee that he came up with such tactics. Without teammates, he might not be able to pass the audition. After all, his mental and physical strength are very weak. ”

“But Yun Xingze showed good skills before the finish line. When cutting the knees of the three mechas, whether it is speed, strength or accuracy, it does not lost to the strength of the A-class driver.”

“Indeed. We all know that cutting the knees can imbalance a mecha, but few people can defeat the enemy with one move, so he must be very familiar with the structure of a mecha.”

“The accelerated pursuit in the second half is also wonderful. Is that speed comparable to Luo Wenchuan?”

“You don’t have to try so hard upstairs. Yun Xingze’s strength is not so mysterious.”

“Yes, I heard that he failed the physical test when he enrolled. How could he compare to Luo Wenchuan.”

Most of these people are students who have studied the competition, and they will review it each time it ends. Across the four grade auditions, except for Luo Wenchuan, Yun Xingze is undoubtedly a good sample for analysis.

After discussing for a long time, there was no final conclusion on Yun Xingze’s true strength, but reached a consensus on another matter.

The emergence of this tactic will undoubtedly change the future of the audition competition.

Zhuo Feiyue also saw these posts. He really likes to dive in the forum and watch the gossip of these students.

Seeing Yun Xingze’s name in addition to Luo Wenchuan’s name in the “Mecha Division” forums, Zhuo Feiyue felt extremely proud.

After such pride, Zhuo Feiyue’s expression gradually became serious.

In the previous practical class, Yun Xingze activated a B-class mech with C-class mental power. He always thought it was an accident. The mech was probably wrong. But when he watched the audition competition, given later Yun Xingze’s performance, other thoughts emerged…

Is it possible that Yun Xingze could leapfrog mecha?

Zhuo Feiyue was quickly frightened by his own thoughts-in the entire empire, there are very few people who can leapfrog and control mechas.

Even if you count the Star Alliance next door, there will be no more than ten people.

How could Yun Xingze, an omega with a C-level mental power, be a genius at this level?

Although Zhuo Feiyue knew that it was impossible, he still took this doubt and went to the omega male dormitory to find Yun Xingze.

After the game yesterday, Yun Xingze was so tired that he collapsed on the bed and fell asleep. For once, he was finally able to wake up naturally. He didn’t need to go out to earn money, and he didn’t need to worry about being dropped out of school.

But he didn’t expect that early in the morning, Zhuo Feiyue came to the door and brought breakfast for him and Lu Ranxu.

Yun Xingze hurriedly said thank you to Zhuo Feiyue. During breakfast, Zhuo Feiyue opened the door and explained his intentions—he wanted to talk to Yun Xingze alone.

Yun Xingze originally thought Zhuo Feiyue was here for the audition and to praise him.

However, when Zhuo Feiyue took him to a mental strength training room, he was stunned and asked: “Teacher, are you taking me to train mental strength?”

“I won’t toss you today. Zhuo Feiyue looked at Yun Xingze with a lot of thoughts in his eyes, “This is the best mental training room in the whole school. Generally, only varsity team members can enter. The members of the varsity team has not yet been determine. It’s reasonable you shouldn’t be allowed, but…”

At this point, Zhuo Feiyue paused. He really wanted to ask the phrase “Are you able to leapfrog mecha”, but he felt asking this kind of question as a teacher was too unreliable.

So he said to Yun Xingze: “You should test your mental power first.”

Zhuo Feiyue wanted to determine Yun Xingze’s mental power level.

If the mecha is B-level and Yun Xingze’s mental power is C-level, then it is indeed possible that he has the talent to leapfrog the mecha.

Yun Xingze nodded, he understood Zhuo Feiyue’s behavior as caring for himself after the game.

After connecting to the mental power evaluation helmet, Yun Xingze closed his eyes and used mental power to start the evaluation instrument seriously. During the whole process, Zhuo Feiyue held his breath and stared at the screen tightly.

A few minutes later, the result appeared on the light screen of the evaluation instrument.

Yun Xingze opened his eyes, and was stunned–there was a big “B” on the screen.

This means that his mental strength has risen to B-level.

Yun Xingze thought blankly, when did his mental power level up? Before or after the game?

At this moment, he suddenly thought of something.

During the audition, when Yun Xingze chased the three mechas of Class A in the last half, he suddenly felt that his control of the mecha became much smoother and easier, as if some restraints were liberated.

Thinking about it now, it should be about at time when his mental power jumped from C-level to B-level.

Breaking through the C-level mark is a qualitative leap.

More importantly, Yun Xingze knew that he had the ability to control the mecha by leapfrogging. Now that his mental strength has risen to the B-level, it also means that he is not far from driving the A-level mecha.

Beside him, Zhuo Feiyue breathed a sigh of relief.

He thought to himself that he was probably crazy to think that Yun Xingze could leapfrog a mecha.

If he asked such a question now, Yun Xingze would laugh at him.

“It’s a level higher than when school started. Good.” Zhuo Feiyue curved his lips and praised. “There are few people who can upgrade so quickly like you. In the future, you will continue to exercise yourself and strive to improve your physical and mental strength, they can be promoted further.”

Zhuo Feiyue was telling the truth. Although Yun Xingze could not leapfrog the mecha, it was surprising that his mental power was upgraded so quickly.

Yun Xingze took off his helmet and nodded earnestly: “I will.” After that, he asked again: “By the way, teacher, are we just here to test mental strength?”

“One more thing.” Zhuo Feiyue’s expression became serious, “Your lightsaber mecha is second-hand, right? I noticed it during the game. Many parts of it have been simplified, and its functions are slightly simpler.”

Yun Xingze: “You have good eyesight. It is a second-hand C-class mecha.”

“After the audition, there will be a single-player PK match in three days.” Zhuo Feiyue looked at Yun Xingze and continued, “Since your mental power has been upgraded, it’s time to refit the mecha. There likely isn’t enough time to make major changes, but adding some accessories can still be done.”

After that, Zhuo Feiyue thought for a while, and added: “The single player PK competition is a comparison across the four grades. There are players from B-level to SS-level. Of course, most of them are B-level and A-level. Your C-level mech is still very disadvantaged when confronting them.”

Yun Xingze also knows this truth, but he was a little embarrassed. “I have a conflict with my family, and don’t have enough money to modify the mecha.”

Zhuo Feiyue understood. After he pondering for a moment, he said to Yun Xingze: “I remember that the first place in the audition has a bonus. About 50,000 star coins?”

Yun Xingze was stunned, and his eyes lit up. “Really?”

“Really.” Zhuo Feiyue smiled and nodded. “If you still lack money, you can ask me to borrow some anytime.”

“How shameful is this…” Yun Xingze scratched his head. He is not used to owing favors to others, especially to such an elderly teacher.

“As long as you can win a prize in the Mecha Contest, I will definitely support you.” Zhuo Feiyue said seriously, “I can give you a sum of money now.”

“No, no, really don’t need…” Yun Xingze suddenly felt a lot of pressure.

Soon, his account received a sum of money transferred from Zhuo Feiyue of about 50,000 or 60,000 star coins.

Before long, the audition prizes that the school gave him were also paid, adding up to a total of about 100,000 stars.

Although he can’t buy top accessories, it is enough for Yun Xingze.

Yun Xingze looked at the money and felt that if he didn’t do well, it would be too sorry to Zhuo Feiyue.

He looked at Zhuo Feiyue and said, “Teacher, I will work hard to repay your great kindness…”

Zhuo Feiyue smiled and looked at him: “It’s alright , I’m going to a meeting with those teachers. You are the number one dark horse this year. Don’t let me down.”

With only three days left before the game, Yun Xingze started to modify the mecha using the money.

His lightsaber mecha only has one saber, so he wants to add another lightsaber. The small caliber artillery in his left hand does not have enough firepower and needs to be refitted. The joint bearings of the fingers and the bearings at the knees are somewhat deformed. It may need to be replaced; the internal nerves and turbocharging system of the mecha are also waiting to be updated…

Together, a lot of materials need to be bought. If he went to the mecha factory near the school to buy brand new materials, 100,000 will definitely not be enough.

Looking at the long list of materials, Yun Xingze crossed some out after some thought.

“Nano driving suit…” Yun Xingze looked at these words and had a headache for a while.

It stands to reason that this mech was driven by someone before, and the nano-driving suit inside must be replaced.

But the original owner seemed to care about the maintenance of the mecha. The nano suit was very clean and there was no signs of wear.

“Forget it, just keep it first.” Yun Xingze sighed. “I’ll change it when I have money.”

Anyway, that person didn’t know that he had bought his mech, so it was fine to wear it for the time being.

Besides…the driving suit still has a faint mint fragrance, which makes it very comfortable to wear.

 


Hehehehe. You’d think he likes the mint fragrance. 😉😉😉

    Lol you’d think they would have previoudly announced 50k bonus for 1st place – a bit too convenient imo. Can’t complain though since YXZ needs the money to get OP. Glad YXZ likes the smell of mint~ can’t wait for that reveal to him that it’s LWC’s scent.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Well the MC doesn’t follow news about anything. He cares about 1 thing: mechas. Even the money is for buying things to upgrade his mecha.

  2. Avatar Malacat says:

    I swear all the best alphas have either a fresh mountain pine or mint scent. That’s how you know their going to be doting and sweet for their omega. A clean and refreshing scent for a refreshing ML.

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Hm. Maybe. Most of the times it’s more masculine, earthy scents or alcohols which make sense. There are one or 2 fics with alphas with sweet scents (as a plot device) though.

  3. Avatar Sadie Woods says:

    One might even say… there’s an attraction to this mint scent? 🤭

    I said this before, but I like this teacher! He’s reliable! It’s probably actually a good thing the leapfrogging aspect isn’t known- this can attract too much attention!

    Thanks for your hard work translating!

  4. Avatar Rai says:

    Can’t refute though, mint scent smells heavenly (人*´∀`)。*゚+ oh gosh, now I want mint choco ice-cream….

    Thank you for the chapter~ Stay safe and take care of your health!

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Go get some ice cream while it’s still summer in some parts! 🍦

  5. Avatar Panda Eyes says:

    Mint as scent….
    I can say that definitely can calm your mind n nerves

    I still prefer Chocolate, Lemon n Bubble Gum Candy as scent
    Any Omegaverse with them as scent in it?
    Please tell me

    1. komorebi komorebi says:

      Errr… there’s one where the alpha smells like sugar/candy. Forgot the name. The omega has broken glands and no scent. But they match 100%.
      The premise is interesting, but the story is written as if it’s for kids, and quite immature writing.
