“I still don’t understand.”
It was not that Ice Storm did not agree with Meng Chao’s analysis, but she just could not figure it out. “The commander of the Great Horn Army seems to be quite a shrewd figure. How could he not understand what you said?
“Then, why did he watch the army that he painstakingly built die and walk toward destruction?”
Indeed, he had been able to mobilize tens of thousands of rat people in the five clans’ main cities such as Black-corner City at the same time.
He was also able to build a team that dared to challenge his former master from scratch in the gap between the Blood Hoof Clan and the Gold Clan.
He also had a lot of techniques that originated from the ancient Tulan people and the secrets of the temple.
The mastermind behind the Great Horn Army definitely did not seem to be a foolhardy person.
What benefits did such a suicidal strategy have for him?
“Of course it has benefits.”
Meng Chao sipped on the not-so-thick mandala paste as he analyzed the situation patiently, “Have you noticed that we have gone through four siege battles? After each battle, the rat soldiers who performed extremely valiantly, who took the divine medicine and survived, and who did not suffer any side effects, as well as those who were extremely skilled, have all disappeared?”
Ice storm was slightly stunned.
The mobility of the Great Horn Legion was extremely strong.
Basically, every day, there would be more and more rebel troops from all over the land of Tulanze.
They would fall behind and even fall apart, reorganizing themselves.
On the other hand, the siege war that relied on the sea of people tactic consumed a huge amount of energy.
As a result, the ‘comrades’around them took turns like walking lamps, and it was rare to see any familiar faces.
However, the ice storm did not pay attention to the details that Meng Chao had mentioned.
Meng Chao, on the other hand, said confidently, “I have observed that the four siege battles were all like this. The rat soldiers who performed exceptionally well and had a high tolerance for the ‘divine drugs’were often taken away by the rat god priests after they won.
“In the next siege battle, especially before the siege, they will definitely not appear in the bloody trenches.
“Then, it will be like… cutting chives. The best of the millions of rat soldiers will be selected through the tough battles where blood and flesh will fly everywhere.”
Tu Lanze did not have chives.
Ice storm was slightly dazed.
It was not until Meng Chao explained with “The tender leaves on the mandala’s branches”that she came to a realization.
“Are you saying that the series of battles that we have experienced in the past half a month is the Great Horn Army’s way of selecting elite soldiers?”She muttered.
“That’s right. Since the start of the sky-sinking grassland, hasn’t the great horn army been using this method to select elite soldiers?”
Meng Chao sneered, “As the saying goes, ‘the essence of soldiers is more valuable than the quantity’. Neither the Great Horn Army nor the five clans need so many cannon fodder who waste their food. If the best of the best can be eliminated through bloody and cruel battles, ninety percent of the unqualified rat civilians will be eliminated, leaving only one-tenth of the elites who have been through hundreds of battles.
“On the one hand, it can greatly reduce the great horn army’s military rations consumption. At the same time, it can improve their mobility and stealth, making it easier for them to command. Isn’t it much better than leading so many mobs who will only waste food
Ice Storm Thought for a moment and repeated Meng Chao’s speculation, “The guy hiding behind the Great Horn Army never thought that he would capture so many cities and towns. The so-called goal of conquering cities and lands is merely to select the truly strong ones among the rat people through the survival of the fittest?”
“Yes. I even suspected that there was no ‘great horn army’in the beginning. Or rather, the scale of the great horn army at that time was far smaller than what the messengers, officers, and priests had described. Not to mention a million soldiers, there were not even hundreds of thousands of them. At most, there were only tens of thousands of them. Otherwise, the size of the underground ecosystem that we saw in the deep part of the rift would have been far beyond what we could bear.”
Meng Chao said, “In the beginning, the messengers of the Rat God only tried to stir up the rat subjects by pulling the banner of the Rat God.
“However, when millions of rat subjects were ignited with the fury of resistance and gathered together recklessly in the cruel war, after a lot of training, and when those who crawled back from the edge of Hell gradually stood out, the so-called ‘Rat God’s most elite army — the Great Horn Army’would be worthy of its name!”
Ice storm was silent for a long time.
“It’s not that I don’t believe that the mastermind behind the scenes would never use such a ruthless method to build an elite rat army.”
Ice storm frowned slightly and said cautiously, “I just don’t understand. Even if the other party’s strategic goal is fully realized, he really did get an elite rat army full of anger and hatred that crawled back from the edge of Hell. So What?”?
“Can this elite rat militia legion compete with the heavy army group made up of totem warriors of the Gold clan or the Blood Hoof Clan?”
“Of course not.”
Meng Chao shook his head, “Even if the elites of the great horn army are trained to be ferocious, tyrannical, and fearless, even if their scale is more than ten times that of the tribal army made up of totem warriors, they still have no hope of winning.”
There was nothing they could do.
The otherworld that possessed spiritual energy was, after all, a world that relied on the size of a fist to decide the power of speech.
If the weak could easily crush the strong by relying on numbers.
The history and future of the Otherworld would not be so fascinating and unpredictable.
“Therefore, what is the guy who single-handedly created the ‘Great Horn Rat God’and the ‘Great Horn Army’Thinking?”
The ice storm could not figure out the other party’s thoughts more and more, “He invested so much effort and resources just to build a rat army that has never appeared in the history of Tulanze and then personally send it to the execution platform?”
“That’s where you’re wrong.”
Meng Chao narrowed his eyes and said, “Of course, the Big Horn Army is definitely not a match for the Gold clan’s Heavy Army Group. Once the totem warriors get serious, the rat people will definitely be killed until they lose their armor and fall into disarray.
“However, defeat is one thing, but annihilation is another.
“Moreover, the so-called ‘annihilation’does not usually mean that the entire army has been massacred. Instead, it means that the organizational structure has been destroyed, the commander has been killed, and the soldiers have completely lost their will to fight. They have fled and surrendered in batches.
“Since ancient times, in the countless ‘annihilation battles’, the soldiers who have truly been massacred are at most twenty to thirty percent. The vast majority of the soldiers will still be captured by the victors.
“As long as there isn’t a deep-rooted hatred between the two parties and the victors’food isn’t too tight, it’s impossible to kill all the captives. Especially since the captives this time are the best ones that have been carefully selected from the countless rat subjects.
“Whether they are cannon fodder or slave labor, they are the best materials. What do you think?”
The ice storm was suddenly enlightened.
Meng Chao’s analysis opened up a whole new train of thought in her mind.
That’s right. On the surface, the golden clan seemed to be the biggest victim of the ‘Great Horn Rebellion’.
After all, under the strategy of ‘driving the tiger to swallow the wolf,’the furious and unruly rat people from all over the world were all driven into the territory of the golden clan, they had already turned the southern part of the territory upside down and it was a complete mess.
However, if one thought about it carefully, other than temporarily losing a few towns and humiliating the glory of the Golden Clan,.
The golden clan did not suffer any serious injuries.
In the last glorious era, they had gone in and out of the land of holy light seven times, killing so much that the night watchmen and mages were terrified. Even the most irritable dwarves heard their names and their whiskers were trembling, they were even unharmed.
If the wolves, tigers, and leopards, who had been conserving their energy, came down from the mountain and heavily wounded the great horn army as if they were Tigers.
The Great Horn Army, which had run out of ammunition and food, was too bloated and lacked basic qualities and effective leadership, and it was highly possible that it would collapse instantly.
By then, if the best of the defeated soldiers were unwilling to starve to death, there would only be one way for them to survive.
And that was to surrender to the Gold clan!
“The so-called ‘Big Horn Rat God’and the ‘Big Horn army’are all the tricks of the Gold clan!”
Ice Storm suddenly came to a realization.
When they were in black-corner city, Casanova Bloodhoof and the elders of the clan had used this excuse to explain the existence of the Rat God’s emissary.
Although the excuse was fabricated by them.
It was precisely because of this excuse that it was reasonable enough to be convincing.
If Casa Bloodhoof had hit the nail on the head…
Everything would make sense.
Why could the rat people organize a large number of people to sneak into the underground of black-corner city and carry out large-scale earthwork and high-precision blasting operations.
Why was it that they seemed to know the temples in black horn city like the back of their hands, and they were familiar with how to crack the mechanisms in the temples and steal the treasures in the temples — after all, many ancient weapons and armor fragments with thousands of years of history.., it was because the totems on the surface were fragmented, making their spiritual magnetic field extremely unstable.
If they were not smeared with secret medicines and sealed with secret techniques, once they touched the air, they would release incomparably violent spiritual energy, which was enough to burn anyone who came into contact with it into ashes instantly.
Why was it that the basic soldiers of the great horn army, including the bone club and the old bear skin, were so well-trained that they were almost as good as the elites of the five major clans.
Why was it that the secret campsite of the Great Horn Army had always been hidden in the gap between the Bloodhoof clan’s territory and the Gold clan’s territory.
“The rise of the Great Horn Army was supported by the Gold clan!”
“The Great Horn Army is a tool made by the Gold clan to harvest the elite rat soldiers in the territories of the other four clans!”icestorm blurted out
