After having the two attacks collided it was what would send the fight into a vital point. Lux was sent shooting backwards more than five hundred feet from the force of Sloth's attack whilst Sloth was frozen in place from the attack, doing his best to crack through the ice damage and regain himself. It was like sky scrapers smacked beside each over and making an opening between a square of them, large forestry growing between them. Lux was sent directly to the top of the middle one, causing a large dust cloud around his impacted area. The attack lowered the entirety of his stats and caused severe pain from the cold. If it wasn't for the fact Lux was sent away from him there would have been a sure loss for Sloth.
"Shiver Shark!" An unseen Lux yelled, though the sound came from the spot he was sent towards, meaning he was going to be stuck in the same spot as he is now. Eleven more trails rushed out from the area, and around against the buildings around him and just around a massive tree that was directly below where Lux was.
Each of the trails were racing towards Sloth, going right for a chance to attack. Surrounding Sloth and going in to the throat as they always seem to Sloth was prepared this time. Parrying each of them as they came in using a combination of his Zero Zone technique he was able to speed himself up to do so, even though the eleven of them attacked simultaneously. Normally the lighter levels of gravity would give his opponent a stat boost along with him he noticed how the reflected copies were unphased by either increased or decreased gravity. Sloth was able to jump out of their area and move around to inside of a skyscraper, trying to buy time so that he could devise a new strategy.
The eleven ice trails went and looped around the skyscraper to make complete rings around it. "Fin Blade!" Lux had his ice rings created by the trails of his Essence close in on themselves. Having turned into complete Ice disks the skyscraper was cut into sections of its former self and with enough force it shot each of the sections up sixty feet into the air. All of this was in an effort to cut down Sloth
"Perfect. Now bear witness to the godly powerful strength and mind of someone of my level of superiority and greatness." Running out and jumping out of a window of the opposite side of where Lux was, Sloth whilst in mid air tilted his body at his signature forty five degree angle with his palm flat and facing towards the skyscraper sections as if he was going to push onto them "Shifting Shot!"
Sloth used his area of affect to its fullest so that he could cover all of the sky scraper with his gravity manipulating zone. Having yet to fall into back down from the slashes that Lux preformed that sent it upwards into the air Sloth used this to give the flow of Gravity so that was pushing down towards where Lux was. Each of the sections of the skyscraper smashed right into the one Lux had been on, crumbling it right down into rubble.
Emerging out of the rubble and clouds of dust from the impacts of Sloth's attack, Lux came out pissed and ready to attack, his azure blue hair starting to get iced over with frost as he crossed his arms arms across each other and over his face "I guess I'll show you my strongest attack!" "Articgeddon!" Once again temperatures in the area began to rapidly drop to zero. Lux was ready to launch his strongest move as of now, his arms icing over with icicle spikes upon him. Just though as he was about to use it a flock of Snap Pigeons, a breed of monster at the level of 6 Stone Stars, flew out of the newly fallen tree due to the falling building Lux had been on. Each of the birds were the size of a normal human, luckily though they were extremely docile and passive most of the time. Because of this though they coming out by the multiple dozen, multiple of them hitting into Lux and causing a strong POP noise they were named from, something that was because of fluids that were tipped on their feathers that caused small, harmless explosions but were able to cause dizziness in folks hit by them. Due to the birds sudden and unexpected hit onto Lux he was stopped from using his attack and was left wide open for an attack
Seeing as his chance to go in and attack Sloth took immediate action, dashing as fast as he could to cover the distance in the second of an opening he had. "Gravity Criss Cross!" Using the same technique he had against X which had been his current strongest known attack to those who were not him. By sending multiple uppercut and down arced punches right into Lux's chest Sloth was able to send the individual soaring backwards while being seen like a rag doll flung up and down from the differential directions of gravity being sent through him.
Lux lay unconscious, unable to fight any longer and leaving his team with an unfortunate loss. Though Sloth had been able to claim a victory from it, he felt it as not a real win. There existed something... strange from Lux's attack he was about to use. It held great power from what he could tell. And if it wasn't for those convenient and lucky birds flying into him he wasn't sure whether or not he'd have been able to take on whatever Lux was going to throw at the young man named Sloth
"Good job, Sloth! You won!" The big fella named Bondor congratulated his teammate as he came to give him a celebratory high five, Sloth responding properly to it with a joint slapping of the hands.
Victoria clapped her hands a bunch while squealing like a school girl for Sloth's victory "I knew you could do it!" Meanwhile all of this was going on whilst Rax and Ossa just gave nods of approval
"No, if he hadn't of had hose birds fly into him and give me the opening then I'd be dead... I can tell that attack was powerful." Sloth knew of the power of the attack that was coming. He was't at the state to be able to withstand what was coming. He was it in his mind, almost as a premonition. A massive blanketing of ice that he wouldn't be able to withstand.
"Lux." Goose ran over to see if his comrade was alright with the rest of his team, Xiam included.
Sckys, not knowing how to really say it without it possibly creating an awkward moment for all of them spoke towards Lux to try and give him some reassurance "You were so close, man! So close."
Perucho just shook his head as his unconscious friend, Sakura on the other hand had kept her normal strange smile "It's okay! You tried your best, and that's all we ask for~"
Just them the scrolls lit up again as they did before all these little games started. It issued out a message as it did before in order to get everything clear rule wise for the entirety of the two teams. Linking together through some form of weird synchronizing enchantment that carried the same way they even knew about this game the two scrolls would issue out what was to do next due to the winning team found out.
THE WINNING TEAM WILL BE AIDED UPON BY THE LOSING TEAM IN FINDING THE ITEM THEY'RE SEARCHING FOR. FIRST SPOILS OF FINDING GO TO THE WINNER, IF ANY EXTRA THEY GO TO THE LOSER.
Only one action and response were shown. It was because The Immortal Rune team just looked unto the losing team of Divine Salvage with wicked villainous faces as they saw the losing team was essentially their servants at this point. All of the members of the losing team just stood here with a look of astonishment and horror. At this point now the losing team was essentially going to be a band of servants and lackeys to the winner from the bout between the two.
"Well then." Rax went on over whilst having seen what his team had won.
[Meanwhile back at the Republic of Vess inside Abraham Links' Estate]
"Sir, who are you rooting for the most in this spectacle of yours?" Abraham's butler, Wilks Jooth, a who was a young man in the proper attire of a butler with his hair slicked all all the way back and his facial hair trim and proper.
"Hmmmm." Abraham scratched his beard as he thought some things over "There are so many promising teams out there, it's hard to choose."
Wilks Jooth seemed not that interested in any of this, but pretended to in order to converse with his boss "You have that Immortal Rune team that fought that Team in Marrow not to long ago, right? Surely it's them if they were able to blaze such a debut."
"Yes, they truly are ones to keep an eye on. But there are others as well. Blade of the Horizon is one of them. I heard their leader is one of the children of the Ji Dynasty's royal family. That kid shouldn't need to adventure if he's of such a status. There must be something interesting about his reasoning." Abraham picked up a large hollowed out log that he dipped into a massive pool of booze he had next to him that was a few hundred gallons worth inside it. "But what's the most interesting is that there are members of each base faction here. But what even exceeds that is that the teams I have the most invested into are the ones I see as the strongest, each of the three belonging to one of the three factions."
Wilks just did his normal as he responded to Abraham's words as if he cared, doing his job as to care to his boss and keep him well kept. "Really Sir?"
"Of course, Wilks. The team of Heroes, Immortal Rune. The Team of Anti-Heroes, Alcatraz." Abraham's expression went from his closed eyes old man grin to a more of a serious look as he stated the last of the three teams that intrigued him the most. "And the team of Villains, Killing Colors."
"You're not worried at all of the villains at all, sir?" Wilks honestly was curious this time as he stood beside his master, awaiting his response.
"Villains are always to be fussed and worried over, but both myself and everyone above those kids would never attempt at doing anything about them. Always stay in your strength level unless absolutely necessary not to. It's something every faction lives by, that way each level of fighters can grow the correct way we all always saw." Taking a large gulp from his log sized mug of booze Abraham let out a strong breath of relief as he went back to talking. "The only issue now is whether or not any of those teams meet on in the fields of battle during this game, otherwise half of the point of this Scavenger Hunt is for naught."
Questioning his boss's doings yet again, he was going to see whether or not he was going to just hope for it all to happen "You're going to leave those three teams fighting up to chance and fate, sir?"
"Chance? Fate? Ha, no." Abraham took another drink from his mug, taking out his own personal scroll from inside his large top hat that looked like the ones the teams had with them but more detailed in design in comparison to the rest. "My wants outweigh the works of destiny." A wild and wicked look on his face struck over as Abraham opened up the scroll he had brought out and looking over it before touching it, slight changes in the sketchings on its parchment self..
