Leaving the dueling hall, Snow Wave began to search all over the city overnight to find friends who would log in and play cards together.
Because it was a quest issued by an NPC, the other party’s intention was definitely not to let him grab a random passerby on the street to make up the number but to ask him to gather other players by the team function to find him together.
However, this was not easy.
As previously said, the total number of players in the Closed Beta test was only three digits.
If such a small number of people were randomly thrown into Domino City, the probability of encountering another was really not high.
Snow Wave has been wandering around and hasn’t encountered any other player yet.
The night was getting darker and darker, and the noisy neighborhood gradually quieted down.
There were fewer and fewer pedestrians on the road, and most of the local NPCs have gone home to sleep.
So there were only a few types of people left on the streets of Domino City: drunks, gangsters, people with ulterior motives… and players.
Players did not need to sleep in the game, and players who logged in for the first time, of course, had no place to rest in this world.
So in the middle of the night, players either logged out, or stayed in a dueling gym (the dueling gyms were open all night), or they could only roam the streets.
In this way, the probability of wanting to meet other players would be slightly higher.
Snow Wave wandered around for several hours, and finally found a companion who also had an ID above the head.
Snow Wave rushed up to take a look, only to see that the ID on that player’s head was “Blame My Chest For Being Too Small”.
Wow, she’s still a girl, so lucky!
Snow Wave hurried up and excitedly ran up: “Wow, this little sister, are you a player”
The girl turned her head, she had long hair, and big eyes, and she was very cute.
“Are you a player too”
“Yes, yes, it took me a long time to finally meet other people, almost makes me think I’m playing a single-player game.”
“Haha, yes, after all, there are few people now.” The girl smiled.
“Then do we want to play together I just received a quest…”
At this moment, a rough male voice interjected: “What’s the matter”
Snow Wave followed the sound and found that a certain male player appeared from behind the corner.
The ID on this player’s head was “Blame Me For Not Rubbing Too Much”.
Snow Wave: “…”
It turns out that they are a couple!
The girl turned her head and explained, “Oh, that’s right, this brother…”
“…just passing by.” Snow Wave snorted and waved at them, “Ha, then you guys play slowly, I’ll go first!”
After speaking, he quickly ran away without waiting for the two to reply.
Why did I get a face slap when playing a game
Do an Incel (1) like me not deserve even to play games
Snow Wave continued to move forward angrily.
The street lights also went out one after another, and fewer and fewer lights were on in the urban area, and the streets gradually fell into darkness.
Snow Wave couldn’t help shivering.
He couldn’t help being surprised by the authenticity of the game again.
He even restored the uncomfortable feeling of walking in the city at night.
It was really realistic and incredible.
After wandering around the city for an unknown amount of time, he finally met his next companion.
This time it was a male player.
The character pinched by the other party has a round face, a round head that was infinitely close to a bald head, a pair of black-framed mirrors on the bridge of the nose, and a strong physique.
Snow Wave fixedly looked at the ID on the other side’s head, it seemed to say… “Yuei Cannot Escape Fae” (1)
Even the ID is spelled wrong.
It’s scary to be unlettered.
Snow Wave thought.
But it didn’t matter.
Snow Wave quickly stepped forward to greet him warmly: “Brother, are you interested in doing a quest together”
The player turned around and said, “Ah What quest”
“It’s given by a special NPC.
Seems like a chain of quests.
“Snow Wave said, “He asked me to find other players to form a team and go to him together at dawn.
“Oh Chain quests” Yuei Cannot Escape Fae’s eyes lit up behind the lens.
The quests that the novice could receive were actually very limited.
At present, the best way to level up seemed to be to play cards with people in the dueling arena.
Playing a lot of cards made it easier to receive other quests when the level is slightly higher.
It’s really rare to be able to hit a chain quest at this stage.
Fae couldn’t escape and came up and said, “What is the reward for the quest”
“My last quest asked me to hand him a Polymerization, which I redeemed with the coupon.
The reward gave me hundreds of experience points.”
Fae was stunned for a moment.
Although he didn’t speak, the expression on his face was clearly—just that
Exchanging the card coupon for a few hundred experience points
Why do I feel this NPC is a pit trap…
Fae coughed and patted his shoulder: “Brother, I think there may be something wrong with this NPC.
You may not know much about playing games.
Some game planners just like bad fun, so they will arrange some trap quests for you to complete.
These quests are complicated, but the reward is useless…”
“But that NPC’s name is Yuei Vu.” Snow Wave said, “And he uses Elemental HERO deck.”
“Hey, it has nothing to do with you… Wait a minute, what did you say he used!” Fae’s eyes lit up, and a tactical push-glass frame came hurriedly, his face was full of writing thirsty.
“Uh…Elemental HERO.” Snow Wave said, “I saw him summon ‘Elemental HERO Nova Master’ with my own eyes, a fusion monster that has never appeared in the animation.”
“Hidden plot, definitely hidden plot!” Fae was excited, “and there is a high probability that the hidden plot is related to the plot development of GX in the later stage of the game!”
He patted Snow Wave meaningfully on the shoulder, staring at him with burning eyes behind his glasses: “This is what I owe you.
We will be brothers from now on.
Feel free to say anything if you need help! I will do my best to help you.”
“No problem, Brother Yuei Cannot Escape Fae!”
“It’s too ugly to be called like that.” Fae waved his hand, “Just call me Brother Fae.”
“Okay, Brother Fae!”
He seems to be a nice buddy who attaches great importance to friendship.
Snow Wave thought.
The first friend he met in World Link Online was such a good friend, Snow Wave felt that his future as a duelist was brilliant.
The next morning.
Yuei Vu got up very early today, and before dawn, he came downstairs yawning.
But he didn’t expect that even if he got up so early, when he got down, he could still hear Ito Chika busy preparing breakfast in the kitchen.
It seemed to be like this every day since he came to this store – no matter how early he got up, Chika would always get up before him.
Often he came out of the bathroom after washing, and the steaming breakfast was already on the table.
It made him wonder if Chika was actually a robot, the kind that didn’t need to sleep at night.
After washing up and coming to the table, Yuei Vu immediately started to eat today’s breakfast and kept looking out the window at the same time.
Although the time he set yesterday was seven o’clock in the morning and it hasn’t arrived yet, it could not be ruled out that Snow Wave would actively come ahead of time.
He was curious what kind of player Snow Wave could bring.
“Waiting for someone today” Chika quickly noticed his abnormality.
“Well, that’s right.” Yuei Vu nodded.
Sure enough, it was just after 6:30 when Snow Wave excitedly appeared outside the store and brought a new player as agreed.
Yuei Vu glanced at the new player through the window and felt that the other player pinched this round face, this round hairstyle, these black-rimmed glasses, and even that vivid and wretched expression…
Then he noticed the ID on the other side’s head…
… Yuei Cannot Escape Fate (2)
Incel: An abbreviation of “involuntary celibate”, means a member of an online subculture of people who define themselves as unable to get a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one.
I’m not sure about this ID’s meaning.
I think it’s a misspelling of an idiom: “You cannot escape from fate.” Moreover, the main character feels this ID is disgusting, so I decided to translate it like this.
