true.

Probably because Rin-chan is a rich person from the start, she could say that without an inch of excitement.

In reality, only a handful of gamers will be able to obtain that million dollars honor.

“So, what’s about the All-Stars?

“That’s the WGCS exhibition event.”

An exhibition event.
At Rin’s words, I looked down at the tablet again.

I turned the page back to the top page of the official website.

I tapped on the All-Stars banner I had spotted earlier and opened the page to see the overview of the tournament, which also delivered an awesome presentation.

I was a little dizzy from all the details, but I read through it carefully.

Three things caught my attention as I read the overview of the event.

One.
The genre of games to be used in the All-Stars is not fixed, and the genre to be used in the next All-Stars will be announced at the end of the WGCS All-Stars Special Tournament.

I guess this means that the genre selected will change every year.
Sometimes it will be FPS.
Sometimes it will be a fighting game.
This much I can understand.

My question is about the other two.

Two, the game titles used in All-Stars are the latest titles that will be released exactly 30 days before the WGCS in global standard time.

Third.
For the above reasons, each country’s All-Stars qualifying tournament will be held using a different game selected from the same genre as the game used in the main tournament.

To put it bluntly, I think it’s a mess.

If you take this explanation as it is, it means that the All-Stars tournament will not use the same games that will be used in the preliminary rounds.

“What is this mess?”

“Well, that’s the reaction of most gamers when they see the All-Stars outline for the first time.”

“But of course…”

Rin-chan’s response reassured me that my reaction was correct.

This is the kind of rule where one wrong move could result in disaster.

What if the environment of the game used in the main game is a mess? What if there is a fatal bug? If it’s not polished enough, it could interfere with the whole management of the tournament.

“Well, they will at least sort out the critical bug for this.
That’s why they release the software 30 days in advance.”

“At least that’s what they want, isn’t it?

“Nana, the All-Stars is an exhibition that was different from other championships.
This is a crazy competition where even bugs can be used as entertainment.”

As if to admonish me, Rin-chan explains.

“The uncoordinated environment, the lack of routine, the unexpected bugs.
It’s a place to select the best gamers who can overcome all of this, who have both luck and ability.
In fact, it’s funny how many bugs are exploited every year.”

“It’s really a crazy tournament, isn’t it?”

I couldn’t help but laugh at Rin-chan’s amused expression.

It certainly sounds interesting if the rules are “anything goes” with bugs mixed in with world-class players.

I can’t say that everyone is equal, but it’s definitely a setting where dark horses and giant killings are likely to be born.

But if the use of bugs is a matter of course, the search for bugs will probably start as soon as practice is available.

“So, the national qualifying tournament is next weekend.”

“That’s right, but there’s a slight problem.”

“A problem?”

“One of the girls we’ve been recruiting for the VR division quit HEROES for family reasons.”

“Oh, that’s bad.”

That was definitely a problem.
If Rin-chan scouted her, she must have been very good, and even if she wasn’t, it still meant that there were not enough members, so it was still a problem.

“I’ve given it a lot of thought, and I’ve want to use the Touka to fill in the gaps.”

“Touka-chan?”

“Fill in the blanks? Rin-nee-chan, say what…?”

Touka pouted her lips at Rin’s bold words.

But to be honest, I was surprised.

Touka-chan has always been a girl who can handle anything with ease, and she’s even been good at playing games.

However, I had a strong impression that she was only playing because Rin-chan invited her, and I didn’t have the impression that she was so into games that she would participate in a tournament like this.

Seeing my reaction, Rin-chan looked convinced and said.

“Nana, you might not know this, but Touka has a very high aptitude for full dives.”

“Full-dive aptitude?”

“What I meant is that she is good at manipulating avatars in virtual space.
You can’t quantify it, but to put it bluntly, Touka aptitude is one of the best, even close to Nana’s.”

“Wow, you’re really good, aren’t you, Touka-chan?”

“I’m embarrassed to be praised by both of you.”

She said this while blushing.

Hmm? I think I just missed a very important thing ……?

“Is my full-dive aptitude high?”

“Yes, your aptitude gauge is broken.”

“Sadly, the latest technology has failed you.”

“No way…”

That’s not a compliment.
That’s definitely not a compliment.

You two, don’t look at me with that much sadness in your eyes.

“It’s okay, Nanaka.
It’s one of your virtues.”

Toki’s misplaced follow-up, who had been quietly listening to our conversation so far, echoed hollowly in my mind.

====.

Full dive aptitude to the point where the scouter breaks ……! {it’s over 9000!!}

All joking aside, full-dive aptitude is something that grows with time.
If you can think of it as an indicator of how many out-of-human moves you can do.
