You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 13

18 Comments

After last chapter interlude, we are back to the game with a lot of handsome heroes lol. Yu Tu will be playing with a new hero called Li Bai in the picture above. Do you think Zhuge Liang or Li Bai is more handsome?

This chapter took me a long time to translate due to the extensive research I’ve to do and also took hoju a long time to edit because of uncertainty with some gaming stuff 😦 If you spot any error, please tell me.

Chapter 13 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

She did not know if it was her imagination, but Qiao Jing Jing felt that since that day they drank wine together, the way she and Yu Tu interacted was not the same as before.

She could not pinpoint where specifically was the difference. But for example, sometimes he would take the initiative to ask if he needed to bring her breakfast. Or for another example, when he was training her, the way he spoke to her seemed like his tongue was a little more sharp and poisonous.

The training for 3v3 was basically over. After battling 5v5 casual matches for a few days, Yu Tu asked Qiao Jing Jing, “You’ve played for so many days, which ones are your favourite heroes?”

Qiao Jing Jing mentioned a few, then expressed, “But I still like Zhuge Liang and Li Bai the most.”

Zhuge Liang vs Li Bai

Because they were the most handsome ones in the game!

Heroes that have lots of different type of position shifting (dash ability) are not suitable for you.” Yu Tu heartlessly dumped cold water on her. Qiao Jing Jing, the good-looks-obsessor, instantly wilted.

“You can just forget about playing jungle position. When you are playing in the exhibition match, go straight to selecting a professional player who is good at this position. The top solo has to be able to resist pressure, which is not suitable for you, so you should also give this position to your teammates. Hence the most suitable position for you is in the middle or bottom lane. Mage, marksman or support, go work hard in these three directions. For mage, you can consider Bian Que, Gan Jiang Mo Ye (a swordsmith couple who lived during the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history – mage) and Ying Zheng (widely known as Qin Shi Huang who is the first emperor of a unified China – mage). Heroes with long arms/reach are more suitable for you.”

Gan Jiang Mo Ye

Ying Zheng

“How about Wang Zhaojun?” Although Yu Tu had said before that this hero was not good enough for competition, Qiao Jing Jing was still unwilling to give her up. After all, she was the first hero she had played  well with.

“You wouldn’t ask this question if you watched a few more professional matches.” Yu Tu mercilessly shut her down.

“For support, you can consider Dong Huang Tai Yi (one of the poems of Nine Songs – tank), Zhang Fei, Bai Qi (a famous general of the Qin state in the Warring States period – tank) and Bull Demon. Sun Bin still can be considered. In addition, Su Lie (known as Su Dingfang was a general of the Tang dynasty – tank/warrior) and Meng Qi (tank/ mage) are very popular right now, so you need to get familiar with them.”

Bai Qi

Su Lie

Meng Qi

“Zhang Fei?”

“His abilities are not difficult to use.”

All right, then. Even though the first time she played Zhang Fei with A Guo, it had been really appalling. After being trained by Yu Tu for a while, it was actually not bad.

Yu Tu very authoritatively determined the heroes suitable for her for these two positions. When it came to marksman, he unexpectedly asked her, “For marksman, you like Consort Yu?”

Qiao Jing Jing nodded. “Because the third skill is very useful and the second skill can also be used to escape.”

Yu Tu looked pensive. “You can escape really fast.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “….. That’s a compliment?”

Yu Tu made a “hmm” sound. “You’d never sell out a random teammate and abandon him, but you’ve sold me without the slightest hesitation. I’ve always wanted to ask you what kind of thought process is that?”

“…Have I?” With a guilty conscience, Qiao Jing Jing wanted to justify her action, but under Yu Tu’s condemning gaze, she was forced to face up to her rabbit-selling actions. “Probably it’s because of … faith in you?”

“Thank you.” Yu Tu did not look like he was impressed.

Qiao Jing Jing mulled over all the heroes that he had said, a little dispirited. “All these seem to be ones that aren’t very suave or good-looking.”

Yu Tu was speechless. Remembering that when she was resting, she liked to study which skin looked good or when she was just drinking wine, she would still need to set a flower on the table, he said helplessly, “If you want a good-looking marksman, you can consider another hero.”

“Which one?” Qiao Jing Jing’s eyes started to light up.

“Baili Shouyue (marksman/ assassin).”

Baili Shouyue

Baili Shouyue is a new hero recently released by King of Glory. His special skill is ultra-long-range sniper. Qiao Jing Jing immediately started a casual match.

Twenty minutes later, she put down her mobile phone and stared at Yu Tu. “Are you sure that I can play well with him?”

“Your accuracy is really quite good. In fact, your hit rate for Consort Yu’s first ability is very high.”

Qiao Jing Jing thought for a while. That did seem to be true. But actually, she didn’t really think about taking aim and relied completely on her intuition. Sometimes, she would purposely try to aim but would actually end up failing to hit the mark.

“You didn’t play well in the match just a moment ago because firstly the teammates didn’t give you currency and support, and secondly, you still aren’t agile enough when it comes to positioning. Although Consort Yu and Baili Shouyue also require you to be able to position, their skill requirement in that is a little lower than with Sun Shangxiang and Marco Polo (a Venetian trader and explorer who traveled the Silk road to China – marksman), so we can still rescue your chances with them. With those other two heroes, you’re… I can’t even describe it with words”.

Marco Polo

Your tongue is a little too sharp and poisonous, isn’t it? Then remembering the phrases “the moth flies into the flame” and “young swallow throwing itself into the boiling pot” that he had used as his words of evaluation for her Nakoruru (assassin) yesterday, Qiao Jing Jing practically wanted to beat someone.

Nakoruru

“Besides positioning, what you lack most now is awareness, that is, those hundred thousand whys that you always ask when you’re playing.”

“……Huh?”

Yu Tu recounted with an expressionless face, “Where should I go? What should I do? Should I use ultimate ability?”

Qiao Jing Jing: “…”

Yu Tu looked at the time and said, “So starting from today, we’ll practice real battling for half a day and then watch professional tournaments for half a day.”

Qiao Jing Jing felt that the previous lessons were something like martial arts class, and now, he was starting to teach her military strategy and tactics, like how to lead the soldiers along the lane, how to trick and trap others, how to ambush……

She could practically head straight into battle and slay enemy soldiers.

But King of Glory, after all, has only been developed for a year and a bit. Thus there actually are not many commonly used strategies and sequences. Qiao Jing Jing was not stupid. After watching for two days the competition videos carefully chosen by Yu Tu, she understood most of them.

Of course, understanding is just understanding; the situation in a real battle is ever changing. What it boiled down to was that she still needed to practice more.

5v5 is much more intense than 3v3. After a few days, whenever Qiao Jing Jing closed her eyes at night, she would see the explosion of the base’s crystal.

As a result, when there was an event for her to attend, Qiao Jing Jing was glad. She actually felt like getting a break.

Early in the morning on November 10th, Qiao Jing Jing happily called Yu Tu. “Yu Tu, you haven’t gone out yet. I’m going to Hangzhou today to attend the double 11th evening party at Mr. Ma’s home. I want to request a day off. I forgot to tell you yesterday.”

In fact, Yu Tu had already arrived at the subway station. He needed almost an hour to get to Qiao Jing Jing’s place.

It was very noisy on her end, like she was very busy. When Yu Tu said “okay,” Qiao Jing Jing said, “Then I’ll hang up. If you are interested, you can watch, too. I’ll be singing today.”

Yu Tu laughed and said another “okay.”

He suddenly didn’t have to go out, so it seemed he had a whole day with nothing to do. After returning home, he went to the official website of King of Glory on the computer to read some information. Then Qiao Jing Jing sent a WeChat message at around five o’clock in the afternoon.

Jing Jing: Are you online?

Yu Tu: Online.

Jing Jing: I’ve nothing to do now. Let’s play a game.

She quickly posted a link in QQ and Yu Tu clicked to go in. The two of them were matched with three random players for a casual match and then they entered the 5v5 Antaris Battlefield map.

This time Yu Tu picked Marco Polo and Qiao Jing Jing picked Bull Demon. After playing for a while, Qiao Jing Jing couldn’t help complaining, “I think Bull Demon is harder to play than Zhang Fei because I don’t know how to position myself for abilities that require relatively large-scale movements and positioning.”

 

Yu Tu: “Just play how you want.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “You’ll be able to win still?”

Yu Tu: “No, I’m going to record it.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “… and then give me a lesson later?”

Yu Tu: “Yeah.”

At this time, the jungler, Li Bai suddenly spoke up.

The Amazing Little Insect: “Marco, I think your girlfriend is not as good as my girlfriend.”

Yu Tu was surprised and was about to say that the Bull Demon is not his girlfriend. But he also felt that saying this to a stranger would be a bit weird. He hesitated for only a moment and then he heard Qiao Jing Jing say: “But your boyfriend is also not as good as my boyfriend.”

Yu Tu: …

In fact, Yu Tu was not surprised because Qiao Jing Jing has always had her own style when playing games. It is inevitable that there will be bashers in some matches. Every time she was scolded, she would scold right back, but the way she scolded back was really very… hard to explain in a few words. For example, if people scolded her saying she was rubbish, she would scold back with “You’re the one who’s rubbish.” If people scolded her for being stupid, she would scold back, “You are the stupid one.”

Thus when people said, “You are not as good as my girlfriend,” her reply of, “You are also not as good as my boyfriend” was reasonable.

The Amazing Little Insect immediately retorted, “Whatever. It’s because he is playing with the marksman and I’m not quite familiar with playing with Li Bai. If you don’t believe, I will invite both of you to play again later and show you a Marco with God level skill.”

His girlfriend did not speak, but typed a sentence.

Birdie and Buggie (Zhuang Zhou): Hubby add oil! (to cheer him on)

<>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.

At this time, a random player who had not really moved all this while suddenly flooded the chat box with messages.

Wearing Nothing is Nice and Cool (Ying Zheng): Don’t say anymore. I’m going to hang up my game.

Wearing Nothing is Nice and Cool (Ying Zheng): Today is double eleven Singles’ Day (Nov. 11; in China, originally a day of activities for single people, but now also the world’s biggest annual retail sales day). But it turns out lovers are everywhere on the street. I came to hide at home and play games and yet I am still matched with two pairs of lovers.

Wearing Nothing is Nice and Cool (Ying Zheng): I am moody. I’m going to hang up.

Then he squatted at the spring water (probably to restore energy HP) and remained motionless.

Qiao Jing Jing: “…”

She quickly typed.

Hand Can Pick Cotton (Bull Demon): Wait, you got it wrong. Singles’ Day is tomorrow!

Wearing Nothing is Nice and Cool (Ying Zheng): Really?

Qiao Jing Jing suspected he had gone to check the calendar. After a while:

Wearing Nothing is Nice and Cool (Ying Zheng): Okay, then I (imperial use) will play again for a while.

This match was finally won after many twists and turns. Yu Tu’s Marco Polo took the MVP (Most Valuable Player) without a hitch.

As soon as she exited the match, Qiao Jing Jing received an invitation from The Amazing Little Insect. She grew excited and, accepting the invitation, entered the room.

The Amazing Little Insect: Your boyfriend rejected my invitation. Is he scared to come?

Hand Can Pick Cotton: Wait.

 

Qiao Jing Jing sent the dialogue screenshot to Yu Tu on WeChat.

Yu Tu: Pull me into the room.

 

After Yu Tu entered the room, Little Insect immediately clicked to start the match. After entering the heroes selection screen, Little Insect and Yu Tu simultaneously made their selection in just one second.

Little Insect, without any doubt, selected the marksman Marco Polo. Yu Tu…

Actually selected Li Bai!

This was practically like a one-on-one fighting match of some sort. Qiao Jing Jing immediately became excited. Now that she thought about it, she had never seen Yu Tu play with Li Bai in 5v5.

The Amazing Little Insect (Marco Polo): Wa, you are deliberately trying to provoke things.

Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine (Li Bai): I rarely play with him, just trying.

Birdie and Buggie (Zhuang Zhou): Hubby add oil ╮(╯▽╰)╭

Qiao Jing Jing immediately followed: Boyfriend add oil ╮(╯▽╰)╭

Pitiful random player:…………… They’re all couples?

Qiao Jing Jing feared that he would hang up, too, so she comforted him: Be strong, don’t hang up.

The random player humorously said: No, I have a cat.

This game was very fast-paced. Marco was very suave when he played, but Yu Tu was even more suave. A confident and elegant immortal swordsman in white, who came without a shadow and left without a trace, who would be in front of you at first glance, but all of a sudden would be behind you, who moved as swiftly as a startled swan goose and as graceful as a swimming dragon. In the instant between when he would suddenly come and then suddenly disappear again, he would do an instant kill the opponent’s squishy (easy-to-kill) hero many times.

The opponent was immediately and totally slaughtered early in the match. Only ten minutes in and then he had already surrendered.

The Amazing Little Insect: … That hurt my self-esteem ah.

Birdie and Buggie (Zhuang Zhou): Hubby, you’re the best!

In the end, Qiao Jing Jing still picked on them a bit.

Hand Can Pick Cotton (Bian Que): You need to be strong. Add oil, oh /(ㄒoㄒ)/~~

After exiting the game, Qiao Jing Jing couldn’t help but replaying in her mind how the elegant Li Bai played. A while passed before she excitedly opened WeChat to say something. But she saw a message from Yu Tu.

Yu Tu: Why are you so naughty?

Qiao Jing Jing’s heart leapt, and she momentarily forgot what she was about to say. Then she saw a message from WeChat—— “The other party has recalled a message.”

  1. Haha I like how things are developing! Thanks for the chapter!

  2. “The other party has recalled a message” – does that sentence means Yu Tu deleted his message? O.o Thank you 😀 The romance plot is slowly moving *throw flowers*

    • WeChat allows you to recall a msg within 2 mins. The msg will be removed on both the sender’s & recipient’s phone. But the recipient will receive a system msg saying you’ve recalled a msg. Also, the recipient may have already opened and read the message before you recall it and you just do not know as WeChat does not tell us whether a message has been read or not so far. If you want to know more, click on the link below.

      • Ooh. Damn suddenly I feel if this is a common knowledge and I’m asking a dumb question 😥 Super dumb when the topic of social media invades 🤤 Thank you so much for the info though. (Now I get it 😝)

        • U r welcome. I also didn’t know there is a recall function but now I know. It’ll come in handy if u accidentally sent a msg to the wrong person or you wrote something wrongly.
