You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 6

12 Comments

Qiao Jing Jing changed her hero to Wang Zhaojun as above in this chapter. Isn’t her hero more matching with Yu Tu’s Zhuge Liang now?

A reader commented that she is becoming addicted to the novel so I’ll tell you why lol. King of Glory players will often say “Let’s go spread some pesticides!” to their teammates. “Nongyao” or “pesticide” in Mandarin, sounds similar to “rongyao” (荣耀), the word for “”glory” in Mandarin. It is also a pun signifying the “poisonous” and addictive nature of the game/book. Hence, you are actually reading a “poisonous/ addictive” book called You’re My “Pesticides” 😛

Chapter 6 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

Yu Tu immediately typed a “?” over.

Qiao Jing Jing was holding her mobile phone. The more she thought about it, the more she felt her request was a stroke of genius. She had discovered that, although Yu Tu was also at diamond level, his skill was much higher than big sister Ling’s hubby, A Guo. If she followed him to play, she would improve even faster than if she followed A Guo. If he could also specially teach her like A Guo, then she would definitely improve at lightning speed.

But how could she convince Yu Tu to coach her, this “stranger”?

This type of man that Yu Tu was, who even rejected her in the past, was really very hard to deal with.

Qiao Jing Jing was not in a hurry to reply to him. Holding the phone, she walked two rounds in the living room, and then she called Xiao Zhu: “Xiao Zhu, get Dan Dan to help me do up a poster immediately. The content is that a company is organizing a King of Glory staff competition. Just make up a company name, but make it a bit classy, the kind that seems very trendy. Give it to me in ten minutes.”

Xiao Zhu felt this artist of hers had been making very strange requests recently. Still, she went and did what she was told.

Ten minutes later, Qiao Jing Jing sent the poster that Dan Dan had hurriedly done up over to Yu Tu.

“My workplace will be holding a King of Glory competition. I want to win and win it nicely, as it will help me with my work in the future.”

Yu Tu: …..

Qiao Jing Jing: Don’t tell me your company doesn’t organize any sort of events?

Yu Tu: Does a reading aloud competition count?

Qiao Jing Jing: ……

Qiao Jing Jing was curious as to where he is working. Didn’t he study finance when he was in university? Weren’t those investment banks very fashionable. Why would they hold a reading aloud competition?

But now was not the time to satisfy her curiosity.

“I’ve signed up, but I actually don’t know how to play at all, and I also cannot let my colleagues find out that I simply don’t know how to play.”

“I think it’ll be better if you find someone else. I might stop playing this game at any time.”

Qiao Jing Jing was surprised: “Why?”

Yu Tu felt a little irritated that he would actually chat for so long with an online friend whom he did not even know when he added, but out of courtesy, he still explained a bit: “I am currently on vacation, but it can come to an end any time. Moreover, I’ve actually haven’t played for very long.”

Hadn’t played for very long and he was already so awesome? Qiao Jing Jing got even more excited. Did that mean she also had hopes of being that awesome? Speaking of which, back then, although her grades were not as good as Yu Tu’s, after some hard work later, she has made it into the second tier.

Qiao Jing Jing’s eyes shone.: “Then when we play normally, can you give me more pointers? For example, tell me what I did wrong and what I should do? That will be okay, right? When you don’t play anymore, then I’ll go find someone else.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “Jade Rabbit God, please!”

She added an emoji with a pitiful expression to help with her argument. 😥

After a long pause, Yu Tu finally answered: “Okay.”

Qiao Jing Jing made a fist.

Ok! She’d take things slowly. Since he had agreed to the first step, the second step would not be far away!

Wait, what was her second step ???

However, Qiao Jing Jing subconsciously skipped over this question, smilingly typing: “Let’s start right away!”

Without waiting for him to reply, Qiao Jing Jing immediately switched to the game interface and then sent the invitation directly to his QQ.

Yu Tu looked at the link in the dialog box that popped up. He could not help feeling a little confused and dazed.

He seemed to have clearly rejected her, but why did he now have the kind of feeling that he had agreed?

The two were matched with three random strangers and the battle began.

At the hero selection interface, Qiao Jing Jing selected Cai Wenji like before. The other team members surprisingly selected Niu Mo and Da Qiao (elder sister of Xiao Qiao – support), resulting in too many support players. Yu Tu immediately typed: “You use Wang Zhaojun.”

Da Qiao

Qiao Jing Jing had never used Wang Zhaojun, but she had seen other opponents use her. That hero seemed really awesome? Anyway, with Yu Tu here, she was fearless, so she selected Wang Zhaojun (one of the Four Legendary Beauties of ancient China – mage).

Eighteen minutes later she gloriously offered up her 0-8 record.

This was not the worst thing. The worst thing was, the opponent’s solo mid who had killed her three or four times had given her a “like.”

Qiao Jing Jing felt humiliated.

She angrily went to QQ to speak: The opponent’s solo mid went so far as to give me a like!

Yu Tu: Wait a minute.

A while later, he sent a game invitation over. Clicking, Qiao Jing Jing went in, and then she saw those familiar teammates, I’m So Panicked and the others.

Hand Can Pick Cotton: Do I still use Wang Zhaojun?

With no strangers around, Yu Tu switched on the voice chat: “For your company’s competition, the game will probably be in Ban and Pick Mode, so there is high probability that Cai Wenji will be banned. Moreover this hero isn’t really able to lead the rhythm of the game (carry the team to win the game) and isn’t much use when you’re in a position where the other team has the advantage and is suppressing your team. Wang Zhaojun’s a pretty good choice for beginners to use.”

Qiao Jing Jing also switched on the voice chat: “But I don’t know how to use ah.”

“Her abilities are pretty simple. First ability deals damage to the enemies and slows them down, second ability freezes the enemies, and third ability creates snow storm, and you can do a combo of 1,2,3. Change the talent (also known as summoner spells which are  additional abilitites for use during the battle) to flicker (also known as flash which teleports the hero over a short distance).

Qiao Jing Jing quickly changed it.

I’m So Panicked interrupted: “Wait a minute. What thing happened that I don’t know about? What company’s competition?”

The time to pick a hero had come. After entering the game, Qiao Jing Jing answered him: “My workplace is organizing a King of Glory competition, so I am asking Jade Rabbit God to teach me a bit.”

I’m So Panicked sent a series of unknown characters.

Slime Package said: “Yu Tu is quite good at teaching people. Zhai Liang is an example of the results of his teaching. In the beginning, Zhai Liang’s Huo Wu (Mai Shiranui) sucked so bad.”

I’m So Panicked was not willing to accept that assessment. “I only watched for a while and learned a little fingering technique. The rest came from my own high ability to grasp concepts.”

There were also fingering techniques?

Qiao Jing Jing, who was eager to learn, asked: “Is there any fingering technique for Wang Zhaojun?”

2001 said: “It does not exist.”

It sounded like this hero was very simple. Qiao Jing Jing performed a little better in this match, but it still was not good enough. The final result was 2-7-2.

Only towards the end did Yu Tu give a few pointers, “Pay attention to pre-judging the enemy’s movement when using second ability. When using the ultimate ability, you can use flicker talent to adjust your position. When the assassin hits you, use second ability under your feet.”

Qiao Jing Jing hurriedly committed this to memory. She then continued to use Wang Zhaojun and played three more matches. Gradually, she found the enjoyment in using this hero. Sometimes when her luck was good, she could freeze the squishy (easy-to-kill) heroes and then use her ultimate ability. There was a greater sense of accomplishment than playing with Cai Wenji.

In the fifth match, she picked Wang Zhaojun again, but when the match was loading, she found out that the other team surprisingly also had a Wang Zhaojun.

To Qiao Jing Jing, having the same hero in this game was even more terrifying than wearing the same outfit as someone else while walking the red carpet. When it came to wearing the same outfit, she generally can win since it was the other person who would feel embarrassed, but she was certainly the one to feel embarrassed in this game.

Qiao Jing Jing was exceptionally tense, which caused her to play much worse in this match than the ones before. She was frozen again and again by the other team’s Wang Zhaojun, resulting in her very sadly beautiful deaths.

After the end of a game, Yu Tu was the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the winning side, and the other team’s Wang Zhaojun was the MVP of the losing side. Qiao Jing Jing thought for a while and then unhappily saved the video of this game.

During bedtime at night, Qiao Jing Jing took out the video of the fifth match to watch. From the other team’s Wang Zhaojun’s angle, she watched how she made her way into the underbrush to hide from people and how she positioned herself in a team battle. She felt she actually got quite a bit out of it.

Of course, she had to work hard to forget that the clumsy pig opponent was herself.

Aiya ~ ~ ~ Who would have thought? When she was studying acting, she had repeatedly scrutinized the videos of the veteran in the field, and now, she also had to watch videos, too, for playing games. When God created her, he must have given her too much beauty so that consequently he had to cut back a little on all the other different talents, right? Qiao Jing Jing quite logically took pity on herself.

After watching the video of the fifth match twice, she still did not feel sleepy. Hence she clicked open and watched the casual match where she and Yu Tu had teamed up a few days ago. She switched it to watch from Yu Tu’s angle. Yu Tu had used Zhuge Liang, and as always, he had showed off everywhere and in everything. After eight minutes into the match, Zhuge Liang who had only little HP (Hit Points – the amount of health a hero has) remaining, was being chased and targeted to kill by the other team’s marksman, who still had one-third of HP left. He had continuously used abilities and flicker talent to escape. Seeing that he had already fled, the other team’s marksman was at ease, jungling in his own jungle area. Who would have imagined that Zhuge Liang had quietly come back to hide in the underbrush? When the marksman passed by, an ability plus an ultimate ability directly cut his head off.

Qiao Jing Jing remembered how the other team’s marksman had flown into a rage at that time, criticizing Zhuge Liang for being too sly and underhanded. She couldn’t help falling into some contemplation.

She quickly come to a conclusion —— I also want to be a little sly and underhanded. The reason why she has not been able to defeat others was because she was too upright!

With playing games, you actually need epiphanies, too. Qiao Jing Jing suddenly understood the true essence of being sneaky, and this resulted in her playing skills moving up an entire level. When she played with I’m So Panicked and the others again, she finally did not drag down the team so severely. One time, her luck was extremely good and she froze three low-HP (Hit Points) players. Nervously, she quickly used her ultimate ability, unexpectedly getting the first “three consecutive kills” in her life.

I’m So Panicked and the team typed over “666” (a Chinese homonym for “niú niú niú” or “liù liù liù”, used to describe someone is very powerful, cool, impressive) to her and gave her a wave of praises. Qiao Jing Jing also felt very proud of herself, and she recorded the video to admire herself.

When she replayed it alone in the dead of night, she discovered that Yu Tu had been off to the side when she made her triple kill, standing there and not fighting.

This triple kill was actually given to her by Yu Tu?

She unhappily clicked open QQ, lying on the bed typing: “Did you deliberately let me have my triple kill?”

She did not expect Yu Tu to be actually online. After a few minutes, he replied to her: “I’ve enough currencies. It is more appropriate for you to get head count.”

Qiao Jing Jing held up her face with both hands and easily changed the name. She also waited for a few minutes before replying to him.

Hand Can Pick Cotton: Thank you ^_^

When big sister Ling finally remembered that her artist had actually had requested time off  and had not gone into the studio for several days already, she immediately went to her house. After the door opened, before she had the chance to say anything, she heard the King of Glory sound effects coming from the mobile phone in Qiao Jing Jing’s hand.

This seemed like she was not being lazy?

Qiao Jing Jing did not even lift up her head and turned around to walk back into the house. Big sister Ling quickly ran after her, and then stared blankly as Qiao Jing Jing used Wang Zhaojun to take the MVP, accomplishing eight attacks and three deaths. She was simply stunned.

“Are you doing man and machine?”

“You’re the one doing man and machine!” Qiao Jing Jing threw her a glare. “Solo queue ranked (when a person queues for a game in a ranked online game alone as opposed to playing with friends), okay?”

Ever since the triple kill increased her self-confidence, Qiao Jing Jing had secretly gone to play ranked matches by herself. At the beginning, she was very nervous, but then she found out that it was quite easy to play at the bronze level and those others.

At this time, big sister Ling was really startled, “It’s incredible. You actually have the courage to go and play ranked match alone?”

“I am already Gold IV rank (ranking from low to high: bronze, silver, gold, platinum, diamond, star, strongest king and king of glory). Climbed all the way up through playing solo queue ranked.”

“What medicine did you eat to become so awesome?”

Qiao Jing Jing was immensely proud of herself: “Talent!”

Big sister Ling cheered on: “Awesome. A Guo did not teach you this, right? Did you practice by yourself?”

“Hee hee.” Qiao Jing Jing could not help but show off, “In fact, I found a gaming expert and had him take me along. I feel that he is a lot more awesome than A Guo.”

Big sister Ling, who was dedicated to her work, was a bit worried: “Is he reliable. He won’t reveal anything to the media?”

“Rest assured. He doesn’t know who I am.”

“Online friend? Then how does he teach you?”

“We switch on the voice chat. He tells me how to use the abilities, how to position myself, and what I ought to do.”

“Hey, I’m going to drink water.” She was too engrossed in playing games and it had made her thirsty. Qiao Jing Jing handed the mobile phone to big sister Ling, “He is that Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine in my friend list. By clicking on his avatar, you can see his accomplishment.”

Big sister Ling took the mobile phone and curiously clicked on the avatar to look at the battle data. After just a glance, she was left speechless in amazement. Let’s not even mention his high winning rate. The overall performance ratio was so high it was scary. She look further at his most-played heroes. Zhuge Liang’s win rate was surprisingly high, at more than 90%. She was totally convinced.

“He is more awesome than my A Guo.” Big sister Ling returned the mobile phone to her, feeling reassured as well as regretful. “Oh, if there were such a reliable person who can play so well to teach you directly face to face in the real world, you’d improve even faster.”

Big sister Ling had no real meaning when she said this, but Qiao Jing Jing’s heart was stirred —— Yu Tu …… was actually a person in the real world. If he were to teach her directly, what would it be like?

Speaking of which, it was strange. Several days had passed already but his vacation seemed like it was not over yet? Moreover he had been playing games every day. He was spending the vacation like this?

What was he doing now? The feeling was that he did not seem like he was part of the financial circle.

After big sister Ling left, Qiao Jing Jing poked Yu Tu’s QQ.

Hand Can Pick Cotton: Rabbit God, you’re spending your vacation playing games at home?

Yu Tu did not give her a reply.

<>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.

The more Qiao Jing Jing thought about it, the more curious she became. She could not wait for Yu Tu to reply, so she also went to poke Pei Pei’s WeChat.

She asked very skillfully.

Jing Jing: “Pei Pei, are there any classmates from our class who are working in an awesome job now?”

Pei Pei: “Isn’t that you?”

Jing Jing: “I mean those who used to perform exceptionally well academically. What are they all doing?”

Pei Pei: “Oh, them ah. Qi Qi is the chief editor in a book company. Wang Jiang is the vice president of a top 500 company.”

Jing Jing: “Who else?”

Pei Pei: “Sun Xiu is working in the mayor’s secretary office.”

Pei Pei: “There is also Du Jia who seems to be working in Alibaba Group. Very high income.”

Qiao Jing Jing: ……

Three minutes later.

Jing Jing: “How about Yu Tu?”
