After the battle, everyone returned to the smart base while the Legion Guild's
main force kept working on patrolling around Seoul. Just in case, the four
guilds had a separate force to attack Seoul. Meanwhile, Tang Shaoyang
returned to the smart base with The Legion Guild's leaders, Park Nam Hoon
and Yu Jin Sang. The leaders of the Legion Guild became the driver for Tang Shaoyang.
No one was speaking inside the car, and the atmosphere turned out to be a little
awkward, but Tang Shaoyang did not care about it. He opened the ripped map
and checked his next destination. With the fall of four guilds, his work in Korea
was over, so he would go to Japan next, 'So we will go to the southwest next?'
He scratched his cheek with his index nger.
At this moment, Tang Shaoyang received a notication from System
Communication. He opened the notication; it was Zhang Mengyao who called
him up through System Communication. This was his rst time using the voice
call feature from System Communication. So far, only the faction leader and its
vice leaders could use the voice call, so he rarely used it because he was always
with Zhang Mengyao and Kang Xue.
[You send Yu back to get the materials to make the antidote, but our General
Shop does not sell the materials. There's a chance we can get the materials if we
upgrade the smart base to level 5 or even to level 6. Should we upgrade the
smart base to get the materials?] Zhang Mengyao resounded inside the car.
Park Nam Hoon and Yu Jin Sang recognized the voice. The Supreme General of
The Tang Empire, the person who spoke to them in the arena after the Earth
Tournament. The two exchanged glances as they were surprised there was a
device to call the others. It was general knowledge that all technologies,
including phones, disappeared from Earth, so it surprised them to discover
there was a similar device from The System.
"I don't mind. We need to upgrade the smart base sooner or later, so we might
as well upgrade it right now," Tang Shaoyang did not mind if Park Nam Hoon
and Yu Jin Sang overheard the conversation, so he did not bother to lower the
voice. "However, let's not use the reward from the Earth Tournament. Save that
for the later upgrade. Just use our coins to upgrade the base."
The System rewarded the Tang Empire three levels for the smart base, and they
could be used anytime for any smart base under The Tang Empire. Using the
reward right now was just a waste because the price of upgrading the smart
base was still aordable at the current level. They might need it when the smart
base reached level 7 or level 8 as their current smart base was still level 4, so
saving the three levels reward for the later was the smart decision.
[I know that already. We will save the three levels reward until we reach level 7.
Origin told me that the maximum level for the smart base is level 10. Above
level 10 is an Epic Level smart base, and we can't use the coins to upgrade the
smart base to Epic Level. So we will save the reward for now.]
[I have calculated the cost to upgrade the smart base. It cost 230 million GC to
upgrade the smart base to level 6 and 730 million GC to level 7. Do you want me
to upgrade to level 7, or should we keep it at level 6 for now?]
Tang Shaoyang rubbed his chin for a moment as he calculated everything in his
head. If they upgraded the smart base to level 7, then they could use the reward
immediately and upgrade the base to level 10. On top of that, they also had the
one billion reward from the Earth Tournament too. They had enough money to upgrade their base.
"What's the benet of upgrading the smart base to level 10? The immediate
benet that will help us," Tang Shaoyang asked Zhang Mengyao.
[Oh, there are a lot of benets. We will have a Dimensional Auction House, an
auction house that reaches all the worlds under the System's jurisdiction. Ah,
another benet is we can install a portal gate, so we can connect our territories
through the portal gate. I think we will need this the most because we need a
tool to travel to our vassals' territories. There are so many benets, so better
you look it up yourself when you return. We can have up to ten portal gates if
we upgrade the smart base to level 7 and a hundred portal gates in level 10 smart base.]
"Then let's upgrade the smart base to level 10 directly since we have extra
money from the Earth Tournament," It did not take long before Tang Shaoyang
made the decision. The portal gate was an essential tool for them since the
plane could not operate since the Game started. The essential tool for the long
journey since not everyone could have a ying pet like Li Na and Tang Shaoyang.
[Do you hear it, Origin? I have his consent, so upgrade the smart base to level 10
right now.] Zhang Mengyao's annoyed voice rang from the call. [I have told this
stupid Ai to upgrade the base to level 10, but it persistently told me to get your
consent rst. Alright, I will hang up the call. My work is piling up even more
with our new level 10 smart base. Have a good trip, bye-bye.]
Zhang Mengyao hung up the call. However, she sent him a message in the next
thirty seconds. In the message, she was telling him the instructions for
installing the portal gate. Installing the portal gate was actually quite simple
and easy. He nodded his head as this portal gate would ease up his work.
Meanwhile, Park Nam Hoon and Yu Jin Sang exchanged glances secretly. Even
though they did not understand what materials Tang Shaoyang talked about,
they clearly understood the smart base's level. They were shocked that the
Tang Empire talked about upgrading level 10 smart base so casually. They were
aware of what it took to reach level 10 smart base, but the Tang Empire easily
achieved level 10 smart base.
'I think I did make the best choice in my life,' Park Nam Hoon thought to
himself. He did not know what level 10 smart base could do, but he knew the
importance of the level 10 smart base. Getting an early level 10 smart base
meant the Tang Empire was ahead of the other factions.
