Chapter Four Hundred and Ten – Snowflake Flood.
Zuo Mo asked Pu Yao curiously, “What is Gongsun Shidi doing?”
“He is organizing his troops.” A look flashed through Pu Yao’s eyes. He suddenly laughed lightly. “Now there’s something good to watch.”
“Something good to watch?” Zuo Mo did not understand.
Pu Yao did not reply. His previous expression of gravity had disappeared, and a cold smile had formed at the corner of his mouth.
In other people’s eyes, Gongsun Cha’s organization of the troops seemed quite difficult, but Gongsun Cha himself was immersed in the organization of his experiment.
The attributes of the flame boring yao were very similar to the sword xiu of Vermillion Bird Camp. They had strong offensive abilities and were weak defensively.
However, Gongsun Cha did not organize them like he did Vermillion Bird Camp. He was trying a new kind of organization. Six flame boring yao to a team, six teams to a troop. It was the first time that Gongsun Cha was organizing his troops this way. It wasn’t going too smoothly in the beginning. Even the spectators were able to feel that he was slightly hesitant.
But as the organization continued, the light in Gongsun Cha’s eyes grew clear. His movements became crisper, and the organization became smooth. A kind of presence called confidence slowly spread.
This new organization of troops wasn’t done on just an impulse.
The problem of how he was to increase the combat capabilities of Vermillion Bird Camp was a problem that he had thought about for a long while. This completely new formation was one of the products of his efforts.
The three section wave killing charge was unrivaled in its sharpness, but if they were bogged down in a battle of endurance, they would face the problem of not having any lasting power. Vermillion Bird Camp might have looked undefeatable in Little Mountain Jie, but Gongsun Cha knew very well that in the whole world, Vermillion Bird Camp was far from being elite. Once they fought against even stronger enemies, and the first three attacks were ineffective, then Vermillion Bird Camp would be in danger.
Recently, his skill as a battle general had increased greatly, and his vision was much broader than before. Possessing rich and new battle experience, he had thought of several novel battle tactics.
If it was any other battle general, they would have not dared to randomly create tactics. In their eyes, creating new battle tactics was a very unreliable thing. They understood hundreds of battle tactics. These battle tactics, used hundreds of times in the past, were enough for them to deal with the great majority of situations.
Never having undergone systematic education, Gongsun Cha did not have their shackles. The number of battle tactics that he understood wasn’t even as many as the silver battle generals of the yao world. Pu Yao never taught him concrete battle tactics. He could only discover and experience them through the process of fighting against Pu Yao.
All battle trends had to be concluded by himself.
He only pursued victory. Only more rational and effective tactics could help him achieve victory!
The messy troops slowly formed as if an invisible hand was shaping them into snowflakes, from ugliness into beauty.
As the gazes started to become serious, the sounds of discussion decreased.
Looking down from the sky, Gongsun Cha’s troops were like hundreds of snowflakes that fell upon the ground. But these snowflakes were deep-red, because flame boring yao possessed deep-red coloured hair.
In the midst of the beautiful deep-red snowflakes, killing intent rose.
“So pretty!” He Mei couldn’t help but say with bright eyes.
“They aren’t just pretty.” Sang Nan’s gaze had not moved a bit as he reflexively answered. Around him, many people also had similar expressions of seriousness. They all saw the killing intent contained in these beautiful snowflakes.
Ming Yue Ye did not speak. Her face was calm, but in her blue eyes that were like the vast sky, shock flashed imperceptibly.
“He’s moving!” He Mei’s eyes became even brighter. “Whoa, so prettyto look at!”
No one spoke, but in their eyes, astonishment flashed.
It really was good to look at!
The troops did not advance quickly. As they moved, the yao spectators found the army was divided into six enormous circles. The six circles slowly spun as they moved forward. What was even more amazing was that the snowflakes in each circle was also slowly spinning.
Thousands of deep-red snowflakes moving in synchrony was really pleasing to see.
But when it entered the eyes of Sang Nan and the others, their expressions changed!
Even the battle generals that had been so disdainful unconsciously stood up straight. Their bodies reflexively became tense. Shock flew through their eyes and took over.
Such a powerful consciousness!
Pu Yao snickered with smugness, “Xiuzhe, yao, and mo all have battle generals, but there are differences among the three. The battle generals of xiuzhe are most skilled in divination and prediction. The Great Development Calculating Method and such all do this. Mo battle generals emphasize bravery and spirit. A powerful mo battle general can gather the presences of the entire troop into one body. That really can destroy mountains. And yao battle generals? Their most powerful skill is the consciousness!”
“Consciousness?” Zuo Mo did not understand. After he found the strange fact that Gongsun Shidi had talent as a battle general, he hadn’t spent any more effort in that field.
“Battle generals with powerful consciousness can detect great details. All of the battlefield is in their mind. Even more, the consciousness is a network. He is able to send an order to every combat yao. The entire army is like his body and can be directed at will.”
Zuo Mo finally understood. “Gongsun Shidi is this strong?”
“His talent is good.” Pu Yao was slightly proud, and then he added, “His luck isn’t bad either.”
“I just knew that Gongsun Shidi is the strongest!” Zuo Mo was overjoyed. Thinking about being able to deal a fatal strike to that old codger, Yu Heng, he felt good inside.
“Don’t you feel your blood heating and boiling?” Pu Yao glanced at Zuo Mo.
“Boiling! I want to go up and fight!” Zuo Mo’s eyes were bright.
“Yes! What’s the meaning in two people fighting? This kind of large scale battle is true pleasure!” Pu Yao seduced. “How about it? Come learn to be a battle general, it is very fun!”
“No!” Zuo Mo shook his head like a rattle drum.
“Why?” Pu Yao asked, unwilling to give up.
“Shidi can learn to be a battle general.” Zuo Mo said righteously. “Making jingshi is the truest path. Can I make jingshi by learning to be a battle genera?”
Pu Yao was speechless.
In the corner, Wei sat silently.
Gongsun Cha looked with satisfaction at his army that he had finished organizing. Different tactics required different organization of troops. However, he did not direct the troops to speed up, but maintained the slow speed.
He had thought for a long time about this new battle tactic, but this was the first time he was using it. There naturally were many problems. Tripping and stumbling, Gongsun Cha was not in a rush. He slowly experimented. He didn’t seem to realize this was an important battle.
If it was said that people thought lightly of him before, then right now, any battle general with some knowledge was staring fixedly at the snowflake shaped troops.
Looking on as this strange troop went from the rawness of the start to smoothness.
“This Xiao Mo Ge’s consciousness is really strong.” Sang Nan was full of admiration. “Able to control this many battle yao so precisely. Powerful!”
“What’s the use of a strong consciousness? Just trying to appear pretty, who uses this kind of formation shape?” another battle general couldn’t help say. His expression was not good.
Someone else instantly agreed. “Right, does he think this is a performance? It’s acceptable if it is beautiful? Ha, making a snowflake shape. Never heard of this before. Even if he wants to be novel, he shouldn’t do it this way.”
“He’s a famous person. With such a good chance, of course he needs to perform! If he doesn’t make it pretty, how can he fool the amateurs?” another battle general said scornfully.
Many battle generals shook their heads. They all had great discontent on their faces. In their view, Xiao Mo Ge was purposefully acting this way. Was he using this pretty performance to fool those citizens that did not understand the profession? Was this something a battle general should even consider doing?
Sang Nan did not make a sound and grimaced inside.
He could understand the thoughts of his fellows. In the eyes of many battle generals, battle was a stern and sacred matter. If Xiao Mo Ge did not understand how to be a battle general, then they would just smile and let it go. But right now, the powerful consciousness and precise control that Xiao Mo Ge displayed showed that he was a true battle general.
A battle general that treated battle like it was a child’s game and only wanted to satisfy the audience. Such a figure instantly provoked hatred from them.
As the match started, almost all the battle generals were on Yu Heng’s side. They hoped sincerely that Corps Commander Yu Heng would give this clown a stern lesson.
Some battle generals gave Xiao Mo Ge the title of “The Embarrassment of Battle Generals.”
Listening to the scorn of his fellows, Sang Nan shook his head inside. He did not feel that Xiao Mo Ge had created this strange snowflake formation to purposefully be shocking, even though he did not understand why Xiao Mo Ge had formed it in the first place.
There was a feeling of danger that hung over his mind.
He looked at Ming Yue Ye Daren. Ming Yue Ye was focused on the strange army.
Sang Nan’s mind moved. “Daren, do you feel … …”
Ming Yue Ye did not move her gaze. She raised her hand. “Look.”
Following Daren’s finger, he hurriedly turned his face.
He saw Xiao Mo Ge’s troops suddenly accelerate. They were like an avalanche , one that was composed of many spinning snowflakes.
The scornful conversation of his fellows suddenly stopped. Sang Nan perceived their silence. His attention was locked onto the rapidly advancing troop. For some reason, the feeling of danger he had felt earlier increased.
He wasn’t the only one that felt the danger!
In the rolling avalanche, every snowflake was furiously spinning like deep-red snowflake shaped blades, densely packed together and moving in layers.
Sharp killing intent was displayed without any pretense!
In front of this rapidly spinning wave of blades, almost everyone had unconsciously stopped breathing.
Low against the ground, the deep-red, sharp snowflake flood drifted forward at astounding speeds. Just the presence of the troops was enough to stun everyone.
Sang Nan who was staring hard at the deep-red flood of blades suddenly felt his eyelid jump. He suddenly raised his head and he had an expression of disbelief!
The direction of this flood … …
Was pointing directly at Yu Heng’s main base!
Translator Ramblings: Pretty snowflakes … … Gongsun Cha is from the Pu Yao’s school of learning by yourself … … you either get fail (and get defeated) or you get it (and still get defeated.)

Cute avatar. Heh.
Thanks for the chapter!
The path of Jingshi is the true path!!! 😉
worst comes to worst, you use Jingshi to defeat your enemies, maybe make a Jingshi Bomb, ect, powers your ultimate formations, lets your fleet of mobile bases fly, able to replenish your own Ling power, used to buy stuff, buy powerful talismans, anything you can think of, Jingshi can play a role!
Remember when he was being scolded by shi feng rong and said that being smashed to death by jingshi would be worth it? In his eyes, that kind of death is a honor!
See problem? Throw jingshi at it.
It can pay lots of roles! Which makes Zuo Mo very sad. One can never stock enough Jingshi before they must use it. But then, if it didn’t have uses, then its value would be low…
Which is why i’m seriously distasteful of modern currency… I’d like to live in a world where the coins I carry around can be used to save my life or make me stronger (or intelligent in our world). Tut tut, they’re basically useless. You can barely use them to build a fire nowadays.
The Butcher stop using knife. Now he uses meat grinders.
These snowflakes is rotating circularly… It should be bloody circular saw
but it’s multiple sharp snowflakes churning together thin sharp blade on top of and linked to another thin sharp blade.
in other words a meat grinder
I prefer spinning tops of doom~
Damn it ,this felt so short!
Thanks anyway 😀
Translator’s rambling hit the mark!
Thanks for the chapter.
good build up!
Things like this should exist in counter strike….
Sweet!!…. I have my webtech exam tomorrow and what do I do? Fn+F5 for half an hour in wait of this..
Thank you for the chapter..
thanks for the chapter!
lil’miss troops: For jingshi!!!
Cant wait for some slapping!
Thanks for the new chapter!
Lil miss use spread and pin point?
Spread to clear the fog, then focus several troop to a single target
the question is how did he get the information of the position?
apparently, if we take into account the shock of the observer, the “spread” did not reach contact with any of the ennemies units…
Maybe consciousness is the answer.
Spread them to the whole battlefield.
It’s like divine senses in IET’s novels.
So I guess Lil’Miss is stronger in consciousness than that old fart, which is acceptable considering how he ate all those soul candies…
I think it’s like a Gatling gun. Six soldiers are forming a rotating circle, once the frontest soldier shoots an attack then he ‘rotates’ to the side and switched by the next soldier who then shoots another attack and move to the side again and the next soldier switched again.
With this, each soldier will have enough time to recharge their power, which is solving the main issue with Vermilion Bird Camp’s endurance.
I think Lil’Miss will break through right to the center of enemy main troop and then spread out delivering utter annihilation.
“Making jingshi is the truest path.” Ge has people to do all the other stuff. only jingshi matters. as long as you can make JInshi, you can live.
As long as you have jingshi you can buy life(/ves)*
Both ZM and PY are losing their edge. The easy and obvious conclusion is that a battle general can make a lot of jingshi by pillaging.
but you can’t half ass being a battle general and make jingshi, that needs dedication to pay of.
better to make jingshi or good artifacts, hire a good battle general for some of it, and then plunder.
That would usually get you targeted by a lot of people since you make enemies. Forging stuff and ling plant farming don’t make enemies and Zuo Mo only has to support himself and not a large army.
Red chrysanthemums will bloom in the snow.
Blood lotus flowers being blown across a lake.
Makes you wonder if Li’l Gold is a Mis. general or super artist/poet. . .
I just got reminded of that line … ” War is art.” which in turn reminded me of this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1Dqb6uJ8WY 😀
sorry that song is unavailable in my country for some reason? But I genuinely get the idea
It was just random vocaloid indeed. The important part was war is art.
This author likes to present the idea of beautiful destructiveness.
Massive intricate formations forming like flower petals.
sword moves that dance like ribbons in the wind.
Building up sides that form the ying and yang then bringing them together.
beauty in destruction. destructivity in creation.
Deadly beauty, GET! 😀
Pu Yao’s school motto :
STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL
Zuo Mo is a bit lacking in ‘beautiful’ department.
Thank you so much!! 😘😘😘
I’m betting he used all those scouts Yu Heng sent to guess the location of his base 😉
I wonder if the MC will rub salt in afterward by saying that he chose the troops that he did to test Yu Heng’s ability to deal with sword xiu 😉
My guess is he used an educated guess. 😀 best place to house a base, that must be where I should go. that kind of thing. Since scouts are supposed to be covert unit
He doesn’t know what the battlefield looks like beyond his own base though, so there’s no way for him to do that unless he can see the whole board, but then he wouldn’t need to guess.
What if terrain is known there’s just fog of war?
On xiu zhe path there’s we sheng, on battle general there’s little miss. Wei must be happy inside.
Thank you for the chapter!
Spend time building a base? Why do that when you can just rush at your enemy
Gongsun Cha knows the truly powerful tactics of battle.
…actually, now that I say that, I’m seriously wondering…
Xiu = humans
Yao = Protoss
Mo = Zerg
Considering how they said in this era Xiuzhe pursue individual power and relatively suck in groups, they’re probably closer to Zergs.
the farther you get from the frontier the less that seems to be true. With the big sects in control working in groups for the Xiuzhe does not seem to be a problem. It is just a problem for those independent minded Xiuzhe living on the edge who value there independence and freedom.
I think it’s a bit of both honestly. The xiuzhe’s nature is to steal and use resources in order to strengthen oneself. Meanwhile, the Yao and Mo are more in line with harmonizing themselves with nature. It makes sense that xiuzhe aren’t as good with order and tactics. Big sects definitely have elite armies of people, but imo they probably don’t measure up in terms of order compared to the Yao. Of course, we have yet to really see a proper elite xiuzhe force, so I could definitely be wrong.
Then that makes Zuo Moe and A Gui Xel’Nagas.
prettyto -> pretty to
Thanks for the chapter!
I feel like wei is cooking up some Plan…
Thanks for the chapter!
Fear The Fire Yao ChainSaw Formatin!
Kinda strange how other generals look down on consciousness.
Isn’t it what all Yao cultivate in core?
They like consciousness, but some of them feel Gongsun Cha isn’t using it “properly”
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
*imagine those boring flame yao doing a flash mob and doing a dance in the battle field*
2 chapters since the battle started and not a single punch was exchanged XD
Thanks for the translation!
Taste my girly formation
It’s a red snowflake that indicates my broken hymen!!!
Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and Brian! No time to waste on tricks and skirmishes. Straight for the throat!
Thanks for the chapter, another proofread
so prettyto look at! >> so pretty to look at!
Thanks for the chapter!
Gongsun Cha wants to butcher the enemy hahaha
Savage as usual.
Dear Friends, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack
I hope that ZMs obssesion with jingzhi will stop since its so retarded that everyrhing revolves around it for him. It was fine that he was obssesed with jingzhi when he was so poor and needed them to suvive, but he is way past that point now, and still thinks highly of those useless things. I know its one of his character points, but he should have some character development by now in that area and grow up.
The snowflake formations is just like gongsun cha, beautiful but viscous
