Unless they passed or failed, the challengers would not wake up. At that moment, the square-faced man seemed to be in a difficult spot. Even though his eyes were closed, they could see his eyeballs constantly moving about and the sweat forming on his forehead.
His arms were on his legs, and his fists were clenched tightly. He looked incredibly tense. He was already at the most important moment. There were six crystals on the illusory stone. It represented the six stages.
Everyone could see the situation from the crystals on the stones.
The square-faced man had the third and fifth stones lit up, while the rest were dimmed. It meant that he had only passed the third and fifth stages. Even though his body would not be harmed, they could tell from the body condition he was in.
Everyone could tell that he was not really able to hold on. However, he had only been able to pass two out of the six stages.
If this went on, he would only be able to light up another stone at most before the square-faced man failed. That was why the sharp-nosed man was so angry.
He pointed out two fingers and said to the small-eared man, “It’s been so long and he only managed to pass two stages! With his energy reserves, he’ll only be able to last another five minutes at most before he fails! He should not have wasted all his time on the third stage!
“He should have dealt with the easier stages before dealing with the harder ones. Then, he can use up all his strength without any reservation. Only then would he be able to pass! Otherwise, all his efforts would be wasted!”
The small-eared man’s lips twitched, feeling frustrated. Earlier, he had just been berated. When the square-faced man’s results were man, he was still the one being berated. He just felt incredibly frustrated, but there was nothing he could say about it.
The sharp-nosed man frowned and continued, “Time is our most valuable weapon! If we use it properly, we can pass! I’ve already told the two of you what to do so many times before you activate the illusory stones, but you refused to listen!”
The more the sharp-nosed man spoke, the angrier he got. He wanted to slap the two of them in their faces at that moment. In truth, the sharp-nosed man was not just berating them for the sake of it, he had his reasonings.
After activating the Killing Illusion Array, they needed to use every second wisely. They could not waste too much time on the easier stages. Wasting time was equal to wasting energy. Then, when they reached the harder stages, they would not be able to use their full power.
They would already have used up most of their strength and lost because of that. There were quite a few complaints about them.
Someone was covering his face and sighing, “I didn’t know how to plan things out properly. I shouldn’t have wasted so much time on the fourth stage. I used up most of my true energy on that stage. After that, I didn’t really have the strength to win anymore…
“The first time I tried, I didn’t have any experience and I did the same thing. Before you challenge the Killing Illusion Array, you have to think things through. However, I never expected myself to waste so much time on the easier stages, causing myself to lose…”
When Richard heard all of that, he glinted in his eyes. He turned to look at Jimmy, changing his mind.
He had planned on activating the illusory stone and challenging the Killing Illusion Array right away. However, it would be less amusing if he did that.
The fog battlefield was a fun thing. He felt like he needed to make those guys be more careful, so the fog battlefield would not be that boring.
