You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 4

16 Comments

The game’s main characters are based upon real historical figures so if you are interested, do click on the links attached to read more about them. I don’t want to include the description of each of them in my translation, making it look like a history book. Is our male lead’s hero in the King of Glory game, Zhuge Liang handsome lol?

As of today, 28 chapters have been released and nobody knows how many chapters in total. Like me, Gu Man doesn’t have a fixed schedule so her next release can be anytime and also a long time. I won’t be updating you with the progress of her release since I am translating this at my own pace. I believe in quantity over quality & I am also slow and busy. If you can’t wait, feel free to read the original work or wait until the whole novel translation is completed before starting. Please do not leave me any hurry up comment because ultimately I still have to wait for Gu Man.

Chapter 4 (translated by peanuts & edited by hoju)

Probably her exclamation marks were effective, because even though Yu Tu did not invite her again in the next game, that School Is Starting I’m So Panicked invited her.

Qiao Jing Jing continued to use Cai Wenji, but the marksman had changed to another person, which was School Is Starting I’m So Panicked.

After only playing for a little while, “School Is Starting I’m So Panicked” was killed by the opposite team and gave away the first blood (initial advantage gained by one side in a game).

When the second blood was given out, School Is Starting I’m So Panicked could not bear it anymore.

School Is Starting I’m So Panicked: Cai Wenji? ? ?

Qiao Jing Jing was a little embarrassed. She felt no burden on her conscience in dragging Yu Tu down, but dragging others down was a different story.

Hand Can Pick Cotton: I don’t really know how to play as I’ve just started.

School Is Starting I’m So Panicked: … Switch on the voice chat and listen to my instruction.

Previously, A Guo was teaching her live on location, so the voice chat was never switched on. For the first time, Qiao Jing Jing clicked on that small speaker and microphone at the upper left corner of the screen. Once on, a voice that sounded a little rough could be heard on the other end.

“I finally know why Yu Tu who is forever the marksman will actually go and play solo in the middle lane in this game. Cai Wenji is dragging him down ah.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “……”

Before Qiao Jing Jing has time to feel depressed, a voice she has not heard for a long time, sounded on the other side. “You think too much, I am just giving you a demonstration of the correct way to play Zhuge Liang (a Chinese politician, military strategist, writer, engineer and inventor during the Three Kingdoms period – mage).”

A deep and low voice, sounding somewhat like teasing tone. Qiao Jing Jing was lost in thought for a split second.

Exactly at this moment, the other team’s Jungler, Monkey King (a god figure in Journey to the West – warrior/assassin) turned up out of the blue. With one stroke of his stick, he knocked half a bar of HP (Hit Points – the amount of health a hero has) from Cai Wenji, who had stopped in the middle of the lane.

Monkey King

The other team’s solo mid, Gao Jian Li (a player of the lute during the Warring States period – mage) also followed closely, drew nearer and used ultimate ability. Cai Wenji was instantly killed.

Gao Jian Li

I’m So Panicked yelled and ran for his life, “eighty thousand people!” (he was being outnumbered). However, it was too late. Besieged by three people from the other team, the fragile marksman managed only to return a couple of attacks and then was killed.

Their solo mid Zhuge Liang, Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine had initially been heading to the top lane to provide support, so he was late in getting to the bottom lane and also  ended up caught in the other team’s three-person encirclement ring. Although at this moment, the enemy’s jungler was already low on HP, the mage and solo top still have a half bar of HP.

Qiao Jing Jing was lying on the ground, thinking that Zhuge Liang was also going to die. Who would have imagined? Zhuge Liang made a crafty position switch and then used his ultimate ability, directly chopping off the jungler’s head. In quick succession, he used his passive explosive blast (a technique that uses explosive rush and your abilities to control the enemy and is nimble and flexible) and killed Gao Jian Li as well.

Destroyed two enemy in a row.

But at this moment, he was also beaten until left with a trace of HP and used a flicker (also known as flash which teleports the hero over a short distance) talent (also known as summoner spells which are additional abilities for use during the battle) to escape. The other team’s solo top of course would not let him off and was pursuing closely, not letting go. To everyone’s surprise, Zhuge Liang turned around, repositioning himself with second skill, then immediately following up behind his first skill was his ultimate skill, which took away that solo top’s head.

Three consecutive kills.

These successive moves happened in merely less than twenty seconds, Qiao Jing Jing was dazzled and dumbstuck. School Is Starting I’m So  Panicked was annoyed and screamed: “Yu Tu, you’re headshot obsessed.”

The other two people who had not spoken, also spoke out.

Slime Package: “Yu Tu, your Zhuge Liang is pretty good ah, why haven’t I seen you play with him before?”

Dragon King 2001: “Every time, Zhai Liang also grabbed the mage role, so he didn’t get a chance.”

Yu Tu’s deep laughter sound can be heard, and an especially clear voice said, “Routine game.”

Qiao Jing Jing felt her own chest resonating a bit with his voice.

School Is Starting I’m So Panicked: “Bah, will you die if you stop pretending to be cool? Cai Wenji, later you stand in the bushes to help me to widen my field of vision.”

Qiao Jing Jing was still immersed in Yu Tu’s domineering triple kill just now, subconsciously asked: “Which bushes?”

Suddenly everyone went quiet for a moment.

Qiao Jing Jing was also stunned, suddenly thought of a problem which she did not consider just now. Yu Tu … … will not recognize her voice, right?

“School Is Starting I’m So Panicked” was shocked and asked: “A girl?”

This was nothing strange …

Qiao Jing Jing: “Aren’t about 40% of the players of this game girl?”

Although she was not good at playing the game, she was dutiful in all the other aspects of being the game ambassador and had read up on a lot of material.

I’m So Panicked: “But you were dragged here by the insulator against girl, Yu Tu ah. Yu Tu, you really don’t know this girl?”

Yu Tu: “… Mm-hmm.”

I’m So Panicked: “Isn’t she on your QQ?”

Yu Tu did not say anything. Qiao Jing Jing, who only just a moment ago had been mulling over what the devil was “insulator against girl”, was actually a little nervous, eagerly hoping that he absolutely did not remember. She was his classmate, so of course, she has his QQ number. But because of some weird thoughts at that time, she had specially registered an alternate account to add him. The result, though, was that she failed to add him twice, even with a beautiful woman (not her) avatar also did not work.

Out of boredom, she searched his QQ number in Baidu, and unexpectedly found his number in an aerospace enthusiast forum. It suddenly dawned upon her to pretend to be an aerospace forum user and add him. Sure enough, it got through.

However, after all, she did not know anything about that stuff, so after adding Yu Tu, they had only exchanged a word or two. This probably revealed her true color of knowing nothing, as Yu Tu did not reply her anymore.

When Yu Tu was in high school, he was really a bit proud.

Qiao Jing Jing feared that Yu Tu will remember, simply answered at once: “I must have randomly added him before.” Then she immediately asked: “So, what am I going to do, standing in the bushes?”

As expected, I’m So Panicked’s attention was diverted: “See whether the other team comes over to surround us. If yes, you send a signal.”

“Okay.”

Cai Wenji moved slowly into the bushes. All of a sudden, she belatedly remembered Yu Tu ……

Sure enough, he did not recognize her voice.

While Qiao Jing Jing felt relief, her heart also felt a little disappointed. But following up quickly was derision for herself for feeling disappointed. Her heart was riding a roller coaster, her emotions extensive. Standing guard was boring, so she could not help but pull down the map to look at what Yu Tu was doing. As a result of her few seconds of lapse in concentration, she was once again killed by that wretched jungler of the other team.

The other team’s solo top immediately rushed forward and coordinated with the jungler to kill I’m So Panicked once again.

I’m So Panicked was lying on the ground and breathing weakly, said: “Cai Wenji, you better follow the mage as I want to be on my own for a while.”

While talking, he yelled, “Yu Tu, who sent the invitation should be responsible ah.”

Yu Tu leisurely said: “No problem, such a lousy marksman like you is not worth protecting.”

I’m So Panicked: “…”

After being driven away by the marksman, Qiao Jing Jing had no choice but to gloomily head to Zhuge Liang’s side.

Zhuge Liang is a very flexible hero. His second skill can have three types of position shifting. Yu Tu also moved very erratically. Therefore it was actually very difficult for Cai Wenji to keep up with him. However, Yu Tu did not have any expectations or requests of her and did not say anything to her for the whole duration.

This match was won by them again. Qiao Jing Jing looked at the final statistic. Yu Tu’s Zhuge Liang surprisingly took 21 heads.

As for her Cai Wenji, the performance record was also surprisingly not considered too bad!

Qiao Jing Jing looked happily at her performance record. A little excited, she wanted to send a screenshot to big sister Ling. Unable to restrain herself, she sent the screenshot over but was yelled at by big sister Ling: “Qiao Jing Jing, you’ve to shoot an ads tomorrow! So late also don’t sleep, you don’t want your face to look good?”

Qiao Jing Jing gave a perfunctory “going to sleep” reply, switched off WeChat and returned to the game interface to wait for them to invite her again. However after a long time, still no invitation pop up. Thus she looked at the friend list and discovered that Yu Tu had already gone offline.

Sleep so early?

Qiao Jing Jing’s excitement hasn’t died down yet so she added the other three teammates as friends, reluctantly put away the phone and went to bed. Because she did not feel sleepy at all, after a while, she switched on the game again and recharge her new account. She also intended to buy all the heroes and skin in this account.

When she looked at the recharge web page, to her surprise, can only recharge 648 each time …

What kind of stupid setting?

After acting as a hillbilly tycoon twice, Jing Jing became impatient. In the early morning of the next day, the moment Xiao Zhu came. Qiao Jing Jing gave her mobile phone to her.

“Please help me to recharge in the game.”

Xiao Zhu: “Huh? Oh, recharge how much?”

“That 648 one la. Do it a hundred times”

Xiao Zhu: “… C-can you spend it all?”

Qiao Jing Jing waved her concern away: “Afterward, help me to buy all the heroes, arcana (铭文 is a number of stat-boosting seals that players may equip) and skin … Forget about it, just buy the good-looking one.”

Consequently, after filming the ads and arriving home at night, when Qiao Jing Jing login to her game account again, she was already glittering and her fowling piece (which is a shotgun) has become a cannon (saying that means the entire situation has changed for the better).

The moment she was online, School Is Starting I’m So Panicked sent her an invitation to form a team.

Qiao Jing Jing was not surprised by this invitation at all, because when she was reviewing her own skin in the afternoon, she found out that the three of them had confirmed her as friend. Off the top of her head, she gave each of them two skins.

Qiao Jing Jing noticed that all the heroes they played yesterday were not wearing skin at that time.

By gifting them, they will feel bad about not bringing her along to play together. As expected, hasn’t the invitation already arrived?

“Hand Can Pick Cotton” entered into the room. All four people she met yesterday were also there.

School Is Starting I’m So Panicked: Little sis, did you give me two skins?

Dragon King 2001: I have also received them.

Slime Package: Me too.

Hand Can Pick Cotton: Great Gods, please take me along O (∩ _ ∩) O

Without any difficulty at all, Qiao Jing Jing played the role of a cute little newbie.

Only Yu Tu did not speak.

Qiao Jing Jing chuckled.

School Is Starting I’m So Panicked was so touched, he clicked to start the game. When they were entering the Antaris Battlefield, only then I’m So Panicked noticed that Yu Tu’s Zhuge Liang still did not have a skin, so he could not help but switch on the voice chat.

“Yu Tu, why did you not wear the skin given by little sis?”

Yu Tu said indifferently: “I don’t have one.”

Qiao Jing Jing was holding back her laughter. After a long time, she used all her acting skill to say pitifully: “When I was about to send some to God Jade Rabbit, I discovered that I’ve no more money.”

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

There was silence for a while, followed by a burst of laughter, “Ha ha ha ha ha … Yu Tu, you finally get your moment, too, of being last on a girl’s list ha ha ha ……”

He laughed heartily and loudly a few times, but then very quickly shouted: “Yu Tu, you betrayed me.”

Against the sound of the system voice making the announcement, I’m So Panicked, who had gone with Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine into the enemy’s jungle area to steal the ​blue buff (a change to ability that deems it more viable for game balance), was killed by the other team’s Hua Mulan (a legendary woman warrior – warrior/assassin), gloriously giving out first blood of the game.

Hua Mulan

Yu Tu who took the other team’s blue buff and ran away, said leisurely: “Retreat.”

After saying that, he made another stab at him. “Don’t worry, I’ve got the blue buff, so we didn’t lose out in this charge.”

Really … looking for a good beating = =

Suddenly Qiao Jing Jing recalled Yu Tu was always surrounded by a group of schoolboys during high school, joking together in high spirits in the crowd. He had always been the most outstanding, be it in study or basketball. She just did not expect this was also the case in gaming.

However, cannot pinpoint where was the difference now. It seemed like … he spoke less? I’m So Panicked always has to tease him first before he would start to talk. Sometimes even the laugh has a trace of melancholy feeling. After all, Qiao Jing Jing was an actress, so she was especially sensitive towards these subtle change in emotions.

Could it be that because he was older so calmer?

… This was wrong, why was she studying him?

Qiao Jing Jing quickly cast aside these sudden thoughts, and played her Cai Wenji with seriousness.

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

Qiao Jing Jing put in great effort to play two rounds of Cai Wenji and felt that she was progressing rapidly. She was already getting a much lower number of deaths. Hence, she boldly tried a match using Sun Bin. Before going into battle, lacking in confidence, she made clear in advance that she did not know how to play. Surprisingly, she ended up winning the match!

Even though, several times when she used her ultimate ability, she ended up casting it into the no man’s land beyond the wilderness.

When Qiao Jing Jing was going to practice on Sun Bin again, I’m So Panicked felt a bit embarrassed and said: “Little sis, we want to go and play ranked match, how about bringing you to play casual match again tomorrow? We are quite free lately.”

Qiao Jing Jing was dumbfounded: “You can’t bring me along?”

Only after asking did she realize how foolish she had been. She had only played a few matches with this alternate account and was not even qualified to play ranked match with it, whereas these people were already Diamond Star rank. So much difference in the ranking. Of course they could not bring her along. In King of Glory, the difference must only be one rank to be able to play ranked match together (ranking from low to high: bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, star, strongest king and king of glory).

“There’s no way we can bring you along ah.” I’m So Panicked was even more embarrassed since he had taken two skin from her.

“All of you go la.” Suddenly Yu Tu started to speak, “I am not interested in ranked match.”

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

After finished saying this sentence, the match was over.

In this game, after a match is over, the teammates will not be able to speak to each other anymore. When Qiao Jing Jing was getting annoyed at being abandoned, a game invite notification popped up on the screen.

Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine (from QQ friend)

Diamond Ⅲ (Rank)

Invite you to form a team. Casual Match 5V5 Grand Battle (Antaris Battlefield)

Accept. Reject

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

Qiao Jing Jing was a little stunned.

This …… don’t tell her he is going to take her along by himself ? ? ? ! ! !

But she did not give him skin ah!

However, Qiao Jing Jing clicked accept without the slightest hesitation. Indeed, only two people, Yu Tu and her in the team. He immediately clicked to start the game.
