So, summary of WEB 8 Part 32 (1st half):
WEB 8 Part 32 1st half
Berculi was shocked that Vector sacrificed 50,000 DT troops and 30,000 summoned soldiers just to capture Alice, as he left as soon as Alice was knocked out. Berculi knew Vector was around since he could sense his Incarnation aura from far off and was on guard, but Berculi didn’t realize this was his plan. Berculi was pissed at how little he knew about his opponent, and let out a roar in anger for the 1st time in decades. Vector ignored this and continued to fly south on his dragon. After Synthesis 49 cleared a path through, Berculi chased after Vector on his own dragon, Starbiter. Alice’s and Synthesis 9’s dragons also followed along, trying to help.
The 4,000 Gladiators that crossed the bridge began to fight their way past the summoned players. Asuna was impressed with their skills as she tried to heal herself from her severed hand, using a spell she memorized earlier. Asuna and Ishukaan then received word Vector had captured Alice, and Berculi had flown off in pursuit. Asuna quickly filled Ishukaan in about the current situation, even as she felt this is like one of those cliché RPG plots – bad guy captures the girl, and the world will end because of that. True in this case however, as once Alice is taken out of UW the place will be deleted. Ishukaan then decided to just catch up to Vector and recover Alice, surprising Asuna in how he can disobey orders. He and Synthesis 12, Shuuta, decides to hold off the army here so Asuna can go chase after Vector.
Asuna asked Synthesis 49 whether Berculi can catch up to Vector. Synthesis 49 said it’s possible, as Berculi had three dragons to shift through in flying so they won’t be burdened too much. Though whether Berculi can win when he caught up is a different matter. Synthesis 49 optimistically thought Berculi can win, he’s the strongest Knight the humans have.
The US team readied a 2nd wave of US players, this time 20,000 of them. They’re going to be dropped in between Asuna and Vector.
Vassago, Gabriel’s lieutenant woke up after being killed earlier in UW. He found he was asleep for 8 hours. Gabriel’s hacker filled Vassago in on Gabriel’s plans of recruiting players to fight for them. Vassago has doubts the plan to drop another 20,000 players in will solve things instantly, the Synthesis Knights are brokenly powerful. Then he remembered how he died, killed by ‘Asuna the Flash’. He told the hacker the ‘K organisation’ (what they call Rath and the operation to make AIs, as it’s led by Kikuoka) has already sent in Japanese VRMMO players. Vassago wants to log in again, to fight Asuna one more time and see if Kirito’s in there as well. The hacker told him they’re out of elite Dark Knight accounts, so unless he wants to log in using cannon fodder accounts he got nothing. Vassago smirked and told the hacker to transfer a ‘The Seed’ account into UW, he has a high level one stashed away. The hacker was unnerved by Vassago’s grin, and by the few words he said to him before going back inside the STL. The account number was “SAO12418871”.
Asuna went back to Kirito’s place and found him struggling to get up. She doesn’t know whether this is due to him feeling Alice have been captured or him feeling Asuna has lost a hand. Asuna used Incarnation to fix herself. Asuna hugged Kirito one more time for a few seconds to try and wake him up, then told him she’ll try and rescue Alice.
Synthesis 49 was placed in charge by Asuna of the human forces here, being the only Synthesis Knight left here. They moved out, trying to catch up to Vector. The 20,000 US players then dropped down in front of them, blocking their way through completely. In the human side’s panic and despair Sinon logged in, wearing sky-blue armour and wields a bright white bow, and nuked the 20,000 army with her account’s ‘Unlimited destruction’ ability. Countless laser strikes from above annihilated the players.
