Before going back, Ouyang Shuo tabulated the overall loses in this battle.

Before the battle of Xiongli Valley, Shanhai Town had 1600 men. After the battle, they had lost 200 more sword shield soldiers and only 1400 men had survived.

Shanhai Town's thousand men army was now only left with 700.

Of the 700, 100 were cavalry, 50 heavy armoured infantry, 100 sword-shield infantry, 150 archers and 300 crossbowmen. The ones with the heaviest casualties were the cavalry and the sword shield soldiers, losing nearly half. As for the archers, they were on the backlines and barely had any loss, only losing 50 archers.

What pained Ouyang Shuo the most were the 100 Qingfu horses that were lost along with the cavalry. As the cavalry took up the role of charging in, as long as the soldier died, the horse will not be able to return and all practically died on the battlefield.

Out of all his allies, Mu Lanyue was the luckiest. She brought 100 archers and none of them were hurt. The worst was Bai Hua who brought 300 cavalry and lost nearly 200. After all, the cavalry from the Consonance Village were class changed from the system so they were riding basic war horses which couldn't compare to the Qingfu horses from Shanhai Town.

Apart from that, the sword shield soldiers that Gong Chengshi and Feng Qiuhuang had brought, half were lost. If Ouyang Shuo didn't place the sword shield soldiers of Shanhai Town at the front, they might have lost even more.

Such a strong alliance like Shanhai Town, who had all the advantages still had a casualty rate of a third. As for the other players, they lost more than half. As for Di Chen, his casualty rate was close to 80% and it could practically be said as completely annihilated.

From this, one could see the difficulty and harshness of the battle map.

Luckily there were rewards, the moment he returned to the Yellow Emperor City, a battle notification sounded in his ear.

"Battle Notification: The Battle of Zhuolu has officially ended. We will now begin to calculate the overall contributions of the players and their extra contribution points."

Closely after, an individual notification resounded in Ouyang Shuo's ear.

"System Notification: Player Qiyue Wuyi, representative player in the Yellow Emperor camp, destroyed the stalemate between the forces with the cavalry sneak attack strategy, benefiting the Yellow Emperor camp; contributed the south pointing chariot, helping the battle progress; in the battle of Xiongli valley, stood out at the crucial moment to decide the outcome of battle. Awarded 30000 extra battle contribution points."

After calculating all the other extra contribution points of other players, the final leaderboard was settled.

Position - Name - Battle contribution points1st: Qiyue Wuyi - 80000 points2nd: Bai Hua - 25000 points3rd: Feng Qiuhuang - 18000 points 4th Zhan Lang - 15000 points5th: Chun Shenjun - 12000 points6th: Xunlong Dianxue - 10000 points7th: Di Chen - 8000 points8th: Mu Lanyue - 7500 points9th: Gong Chengshi - 6000 points10th: Feng Qingyang - 5500 points

Relying on the reward for killing Chiyou and the extra reward of 30 thousand battle contribution points, and also the kills of the cavalry and the archers, as well as the branch quests and the final battle mission rewards, Ouyang Shuo led far in front with 80 thousand points.

Following behind was Bai Hua. The 2 sneak attacks, Zhang Liao led 300 Consonance Town cavalry and played a huge role. Hence in the extra contribution points calculation, Bai Hua obtained 10 thousand battle contribution points and was only second to Ouyang Shuo.

As compared to Bai Hua, the reward that Feng Qiuhuang received was far less, thankfully she had brought 200 archers who netted her some kills, if not her battle contribution points would be a lot lesser.

The 4th-6th positions were taken up by the Chiyou camp. Zhan Lang was rewarded for his determination and had climbed above Chun Shenjun, ranking the highest in the Chiyou camp. As for Xunlong Dianxue, he relied on his branch quests, if not he wouldn't have gotten such a high position.

Di Chen who had lost nearly all of his troops managed to get a position on the leaderboard in the end.

The 8th and 9th position were Mu Lanyue and Gong Chengshi. If Ouyang Shuo didn't pay extra care to them while organizing the troops, those two probably wouldn't get into the leaderboard. The reason why Mu Lanyue was higher than Gong Chengshi was because of Mu Guiying and her 100 archers.

The last position was Feng Qingyang who didn't make a sound. However, he did manage to defeat Xiongba, Wufu, Sha Pojun and Wandering Magic to get the last spot.

Based on the entire leaderboard, the most extravagant ones would obviously be Ouyang Shuo and his Shanhai Alliance, claiming half the leaderboard and the top 3 of the leaderboard.

After the battle contribution leaderboard was set, the system started to distribute the rewards. The blissful occasion that Ouyang Shuo had been waiting for has arrived.

"System Notification: Congratulations player Qiyue Wuyi for earning 8000 battle contribution points, following the 10:1 ratio, awarded 800 merit points."

"System Notification: Congratulations player Qiyue Wuyi for being the first place in the leaderboards, awarded 4000 merit points."

Ouyang Shuo had earned 12000 merit points at once, adding the 1400 merit points from the branch quests and the 1600 from the final quest from the Yellow Emperor, Ouyang Shuo earned 15000 merit points from the whole of the Battle of Zhuolu. What was unfortunate was that the battle map didn't give any experience rewards regardless of player or NPC.

Only relying on this battle, the rewards that Ouyang Shuo had got was equal to the total merit points that he earned in the main map. This looked exaggerated but if one thought about the difficulty to increase rank, it was not exaggerated at all.

Adding the merit points from this battle, Ouyang Shuo's rank had just barely got to 1st rank earl, the distance to 3rd rank marquis was 20000 merit points which was a very long journey.

After finishing the battle contribution point and merit point rewards, Bai Hua and the others took their troops and left the battle map. Only Ouyang Shuo remained as he still needed to go to the palace to collect his final reward.

Before leaving, Bai Hua specially thanked Ouyang Shuo. In this battle, she was the 2nd biggest winner, earning 6100 merit points and becoming a 3rd rank earl, only a small set away from a 2nd rank earl.

The others had also risen in rank. Feng Qiuhuang rose from 3rd rank earl to 2nd rank earl; Mu Lanyue and Gong Chengshi from 3rd rank viscount to 1st rank viscount.

As for Xunlong Dianxue, as they weren't from the same camp, he wasn't sure of his situation. However his position and also the rewards from the branch quests, Ouyang Shuo guessed that he would at least be a 3rd rank earl. After all, the rewards of the branch quests were quite generous.

After saying goodbye to everyone, Ouyang Shuo walked into the palace alone.

At this time, the Yellow Emperor was giving out rewards to the soldiers and his officials. Upon seeing Ouyang Shuo, the Yellow Emperor got up from his seat and said, "Welcome, our greatest contributor."

Ouyang Shuo bowed and said respectfully, "I don't have enough skill, I don't dare to accept your praise."

The Yellow Emperor waved it off and said, "You don't need to be humble. I know that you need to return to your own world so I won't waste your time."

The Yellow Emperor took out two books and personally passed it to Ouyang Shuo and said, "This is your reward, take it!"

Ouyang Shuo couldn’t resist his excitement and took the two books, "Thank you, your majesty!"

"You can go now!"

Ouyang Shuo did not leave and instead stood in the main hall, his face looking a little hesitant.

"Why, do you have something to say?"

Ouyang Shuo gritted his teeth and asked "Your majesty, I have a request."

"What?" The Yellow Emperor frowned.

"I would like your majesty to reward me one of your personal items." Ouyang Shuo said nervously.

If it was not for Ouyang Shuo's huge contributions, the Yellow Emperor would have immediately declined. As for this kind of rude behaviour, the Yellow Emperor was unhappy. He was the leader of a generation and had the power to control the nation.

He sighed, the number of personal items he had were little, the only one he could take out was the wolf tooth necklace around his neck. Thinking about what the Fire Emperor mentioned that it was him that saved Nuwa, he didn't hesitate and took off the necklace and passed it to him, " This is an item that I have kept for a long time, I hope you can cherish it well."

Ouyang Shuo was stunned, he never expected that the Yellow Emperor would give such a valuable gift, saying gratefully, "Thank you, your majesty, for your gift, I will never forget it."

The Yellow Emperor waved his hand, "Okay, I've already given you your gift, you can leave now."

"Yes!" This time, Ouyang Shuo didn't hesitate and instantly left.

Ouyang Shuo walked out of the palace but didn't look at the two books straight away, instead he rushed out of the city to meet with his troops and prepared to leave the map.

Leaving wasn't as troublesome as entering. The battle map didn't have a teleportation formation and as long as players wanted to return, the system would teleport them and their troops back. Also, it didn't cost any teleportation fees and such was very humane.

Ouyang Shuo took one last look at the wilderness and said softly, "Return."

A white light shone across and, Ouyang Shuo and his troops disappeared. When he opened his eyes, he was already back at the Shanhai Town teleportation formation.
