The standard movement of the red mecha was slow, its kicks and punches were accurate down to the millimetres.
After completing a round of basic movement demonstrations, Xi Zhaoyue couldn't wait to enter the mecha. Yet, when she followed the tutorial to lift her foot out of the circle, the heavy mecha slammed to the ground with a resounding boom.
"HAHAHA, you haven't learnt how to walk, yet you still wish to run. You are truly hilarious."
Xi Zhaoyue's face darkened. "Who is it? Come out!"
After a second, a man with a tall stature and handsome facial features appeared in the room. His lips curled upwards in humour. "It's not that I want to peep, but you haven't turned on the room's shielding function."
Xi Zhaoyue quickly glanced over the novice training room guide. There was indeed a shielding function.
"I'm not wrong am I?" The man said to Xi Zhaoyue. "Novices don't practice their mechas this way. It's not wrong to watch the tutorial to learn, but if you want to punch, you must at least first master your balance and familiarize yourself with the various buttons in the mech. Learn how to operate the mecha step by step. "
Xi Zhaoyue knew that the man was right, but she was not such a brainless person. The reason why she punched as soon as she got onto the mecha was because she was too excited to restrain herself.
Since the man had reminded her with kind intentions, she would naturally thank him.
"You're welcome!" The man raised his eyebrows. His attitude took a surprising shift. "My name is Simo. I'm 19 this year. My arena name is Black Dragon which has at least 3 points of similarity compared to Major General Ka Moqi's Golden Dragon."
Simo raised his sharp chin proudly.
Xi Zhaoyue's mouth twitched a bit. Did she just encounter a brain dead fan of her nominal partner?
"My name is Xi Zhaoyue, on the Star Network, I am registered as January." The man opposite her had already announced his real name, as such, she could only reciprocate.
"Xi Zhaoyue? Isn't this the same name as Major General Ka Moqi's Guide?" Simo muttered, but the question was quickly shoved to the back of his head. "In half an hour's time, I have a battle on the arena. Could you please help to cheer me on?"
Wasn't this guy acting a bit too familiar with me? Xi Zhaoyue was a little speechless.
Under Simo's eyes which were filled with anticipation that seemed to glimmer, Xi Zhaoyue found that she could not refuse him.
Although everything on the Star Network was virtual, be it physical pain or emotional pain, they would still be reflected in reality.
She had already been in the mecha for half an hour now, which was nearing the limits of what her body could endure. It was not a bad idea to go and spectate other people's battles.
After Simo received a positive reply from Xi Zhaoyue, he left the room in a happy mood to prepare for his upcoming battle. At that very moment, the red mecha in the training room began replicating the movements of the tutorial flawlessly.
