Let the game and battle begin ! Thank you for the overwhelming support and good wishes. I’ll try to post another chapter before Xmas. But if you don’t hear from me then wishing everyone who celebrates a Merry Christmas.

Chapter 26 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

Qiao Jing Jing had actually been silently ridiculing his strongest king 50 stars, thinking, “If you hadn’t made me play solo queue matches and I lost stars because of that, I would also have fifty stars.” However, at this time, she was taken aback and looked at him in surprise.

The host exclaimed a little exaggeratedly, “Aerospace designer. That’s too awesome. Do you make rockets? I know about Fatty Five (The Long March-5 rocket, nicknamed “Fatty Five” by its builder due to its size).”

“No.” Yu Tu replied briefly, “I am involved in the design of outer space probes (a robotic spacecraft that does not orbit Earth, but instead, explores further into outer space).”

“… I can’t ask anymore. I don’t even understand the terms.” The host wiped away his own sweat. “Good! Team members of both teams, come gather together again! Come to your competition seats!”

Both the red and the blue teams returned to their seats on either side.

The pre-match discussion time was shorter in the second game, only five minutes. The Good Luck Come team did not take their seat first, but formed a group circle on the side to discuss. Following the habit of the previous game, everyone first looked at Qiao Jing Jing.

Qiao Jing Jing was a little preoccupied and was taken aback for a moment. Then suddenly she exclaimed “oh” and turned  towards Yu Tu with an expression of “He’s already on the stage so why do I still have to use my brain?”

Yu Tu: “……”

The short-haired girl excitedly glanced back and forth between the two of them.

Zhou Yin felt that he was fed a mouthful of dog food (an internet slang that refers to the self-pity of single people, who are humorously dubbed as “single dogs“, triggered by public displays of affection by couples online or offline). He cleared his throat. “We cooperated very well just now. In the second game, let’s see how the other team chooses, then respond accordingly. Can you be the marksman to fill Xia Xue’s position?”

He was asking Yu Tu.

“I can, but…..” Yu Tu thought for a moment, then said, “In the last game, their ban mainly targeted Jing Jing, but Jing Jing’s Dong Huang Tai Yi played well. They should realize that their strategy was wrong. The ban in this game will probably be given to the three heroes used by our non-professional players in the last game.”

The bespectacled young man said, “Do you mean that they will ban Dong Huang (tank/support), Bian Que (mage) and Armour (warrior/tank)?”

Yu Tu nodded. “The probability is quite high. The hero pool (the number of heroes the player can play reasonably well) of non-professional players is relatively shallow, maybe having only one or two heroes. Those chosen in the first game are definitely their best ones, so banning them can disrupt the entire team’s strategy and player deployment. Furthermore, they don’t know me well so don’t know how to use the ban on me, and the hero pool of teacher Zhou Yin is too deep so he can’t be targeted.”

Qiao Jing Jing nodded with several uh-huhs, but her eyes were focused on the staff members at the side, who were helping Yu Tu to set up his game ID. Because there was a character limit for the ID, she was called “Good Luck Come Team Jing Jing” in the last game. Hence Yu Tu’s ID would probably be “Good Luck Come Team Yu Tu (Jade Rabbit)”. But would they know which characters for “Yu Tu” were the right ones?

She couldn’t help being distracted for a moment so she could oversee this.

The short-haired girl was anxious. “But I only know how to use Bian Que to play solo mid. As for other heroes, I am only a little familiar with Cai Wenji (support/mage). I’ve also played with Zhang Fei (tank/support) before, but I’m only so-so with him.”

The bespectacled young man said, “It is okay to ban Armour because I still can play other heroes. But I can’t play solo mid. I am also not that good with squishy (easy-to-kill) heroes.”

Seeing that the staff member had accurately set up the game ID, Qiao Jing Jing finally turned her attention back. She pretended to keep pace with the rhythm of the conversation and solemnly expressed her opinion ——

“Then what should we do?”

Short-haired girl: …… How did the goddess’ IQ go down so fast?

Yu Tu: “……”

For lack of a better option, Yu Tu said, “If this is the case, Jing Jing and I will be marksman and solo mid.”

Zhou Yin asked: “Sister Jing Jing, you know how to play solo mid and marksman?”

Qiao Jing Jing’s runaway IQ has returned now, and weighing things out, she said, “Then I’ll use Ying Zheng (mage) as solo mid. He clears minion waves [a group of six or seven minions that spawn in every lane about every half a minute]) fast and is secure. Gan Jiang (mage) will also do. If I’m unable to defeat God Zhu, I’ll just withdraw and hide below the tower.”

She was not ashamed at all in voicing her cowardice strategy. Then happily she fawned over Yu Tu. “He is fine with anything since his hero pool is also very deep. He’ll be okay with any random marksman.”

Everyone also looked at Yu Tu.

Yu Tu could only admit to this. “… Mm-hmm.”

Zhou Yin clapped his hands: “Okay, then that is what we will do!”

Five minutes were up. The Ban and Pick phase of the second game began.

This time the Good Luck Come team became the red team, so the blue Pluck Stars team would ban and pick first. As expected by Yu Tu, the other team did not ban Wang Zhaojun (mage), Cai Wenji (support/mage) and Zhang Fei (tank/support) anymore, and rather banned Dong Huang Tai Yi, Bian Que, and Armour in succession.

The Good Luck Come team was well prepared and continued to ban three junglers in a calm and unhurried manner. After Zhou Yin and Yu Tu discussed for a while, the fourth ban was given to Hua Mulan (warrior/assassin), whom that older uncle on that team had performed pretty well with in the previous game. Of course, this ban was a special one for the exhibition match. This could not be accomplished through the system and was done verbally.

When seven heroes were banned and the other team had not started to select yet, Yu Tu’s voice suddenly was heard through Qiao Jing Jing’s headset. “Jing Jing, the last game was already won. How about being a little more daring in this game?”

Qiao Jing Jing was startled and turned her head to look at him. Yu Tu was sitting on her left side. He was adjusting his mobile phone settings and did not look up. But his deep and low voice could be heard through the headset by every teammate.

“In the previous game, the professional players in the Pluck Stars team were very accommodating to that anchor. If this game is still like that, then the first chosen hero should be a jungler. Therefore, we have a high probability of getting Baili Shou Yue.”

“You mean…..”

“I’ll be solo mid and you’ll be the marksman.”

The moment he finished talking, the other team selected their first hero. As expected it was the jungler, Baili Xuan Ce.

Zhou Yin whistled. He felt this was a little exciting.

Soon, the lineups of both teams were set.

Good Luck Come team: Baili Shou Yue (marksman/ assassin), Cai Wenji (support/mage), Zhuge Liang (mage), Bai Qi (tank), Dharma (the teaching of Buddha – warrior)

Dharma

Pluck Stars team: Baili Xuan Ce (assassin), Zhuang Zhou (tank/support), Bull Demon (Niu Mo – tank/support), Lady Sun (Sun Shangxiang – marksman), Mai Shiranui (Huo Wu – mage/assassin).

After the heroes were selected, there were still a few seconds for the teams to adjust within themselves, so at this time it still was not set who would play which hero.

There were already many discussions going on on the live broadcast platform.

“God Zhu playing Mai Shiranui means that they’re basically giving blue buff (giving the anchor a better chance of getting good stats?) to the anchor again? Too self-effacing.”

“Qiao Jing Jing playing Cai Wenji? They’re continuing to just basically give her a victory on a platter …”

“Isn’t she known as the gaming expert, but she only knows how to use one support hero?”

“She is probably still not that capable. There is professional player in the opposite team, yet she still selected Cai Wenji to play.”

“I kind of understand her strategy. In any case, if she plays support, no matter win or loss, it’ll be easy for her to explain.”

The commentator was also thinking in this way, but of course he spoke more politely. “It seems that the newly selected handsome guy will play with Baili Shou Yue, filling Xia Xue’s position as the marksman. Then Qiao Jing Jing should still be playing support. Since Dong Huang Tai Yi has been banned, it is also pretty good for her to play Cai Wenji, a hero with a high fault tolerance rate (little room for mistakes).”

“Both sides have made their final adjustments to the lineup… Wait a minute, I didn’t see wrong, did I? Qiao Jing Jing will play with Baili Shou Yue? Baili Shou Yue?!!! See if it will be adjusted again!”

“Definitely confirmed! Qiao Jing Jing will play with Baili Shou Yue! The newly selected handsome Jade Rabbit will play solo mid with Zhuge Liang! Zhou Yin’s Dharma will be the jungler. The lineup for Good Luck Come team was adjusted extensively! What a surprise!”

A float of comments could be heard in the audience, while the live broadcast platform immediately exploded.

“My vision must be blurry. Qiao Jing Jing is playing with Baili Shou Yue? Did they make a mistake when adjusting their lineup?”

“Surprisingly she is not going to be the support?”

“Baili Shou Yue is very difficult to play. He snipes from a long distance. Can she aim accurately?”

Among the many speculations, the team members from both sides entered the map.

As soon as the game started, Qiao Jing Jing, holding the rifle, walked straight down the bottom lane.

Actually, under the current version, Yu Tu as the marksman would definitely have a higher chance of winning than her as the marksman. Even when she was using Baili Shou Yue, the hero she was most skilled with, Yu Tu’s skills were still much higher than hers, such as that very mysterious scope skill (a trick shot used in first-person shooter video games that involves spinning around 360-degrees and shooting an opponent without the aid of a telescopic sight) that he had….

However, if she didn’t compare herself to him, she was pretty good, too. If there was a chance to show off a little, of course she could not let it go. As for whether they would win, they would just see. They had won a game anyway. Even if they were to lose the next two games in succession, it wouldn’t look that bad, right?

Qiao Jing Jing thought this rather scoundrelly.

Cai Wenji followed behind her, her voice very tense. “Am I to follow Jing Jing?”

Yu Tu said calmly, “No need to be too nervous. Our lineup has an advantage. You go to the river to stand in position first, Jing Jing will go solo in the bottom lane.”

Cai Wenji asked cautiously, “Do we have an advantage? As Cai Wenji, I’m…”

Qiao Jing Jing comforted her: “In the early stage, hero like Mai Shiranui will use up our energy remotely. If you make up the blood loss, we won’t need to return to home. That’s quite good. Moreover, there is Zhou Yin.”

Yu Tu: “Yes, there is Zhou Yin.”

Zhou Yin: “……”

He felt like they were joining together to bully him.

Zhou Yin said, “Cai Wenji, follow me. Don’t divide the gold and XP (experience point)/support.”

Qiao Jing Jing looked quickly at the red dad (commonly known as buff which is a temporary boost to one’s stat, because of transliteration it can also be fondly called “dad”, which in Mandarin is “baba”). She felt that the other team was not coming over, so she bypassed red and went straight to the minion wave at the bottom lane. Actually, Shou Yue can get red very fast. Normally when she played casual matches, she would take red dad first, but in this kind of regular competition, it is better to leave it to the jungler as the jungler’s growth is more important.

The other team’s Zhuang Zhou was already at the minion wave but Qiao Jing Jing did not rush over. Hiding inside the tower, she used her second skill and began to take aim.

Qiao Jing Jing did not know that since the start of the game, all the camera shots were on her Baili Shou Yue. After all, this was an exhibition match and was not that rigorous and serious, so naturally they would more closely follow what the audience most wanted to see. What did the audience most want to see? Of course, how Qiao Jing Jing’s Baili Shou Yue was faring.

On the big screen, a tiny Baili Shou Yue was squatting in the tower, the three red skill lines gradually became one. Then moving quickly, he released the trigger!

With a “bang”, the first shot accurately hit Zhuang Zhou.

A faint cry of surprise could be heard from the audience.

The reason why this hero, Baili Shou Yi, is said to be showy is that the moment in which he snipes an enemy is very exciting and visually it is quite thrilling. If he instantly causes the player to become low-HP (Health Point) player, that practically can make people’s hearts abruptly stop for a beat.

Although Zhuang Zhou only lost a bar of HP (Hit Points – the amount of health a hero has. It can be used interchangeably with Health Points. In the game, it is called blood in Chinese), the moment he was hit, it still very much gave a blood-racing feeling. The commentator, who had been told ahead of time to heap more praises on Qiao Jing Jing, immediately sang her praises. “Not bad, not bad. Quite accurate.”

However, the bullet screen of the live broadcast was an entirely different story.

“Did Zhuang Zhou stand motionless during wave clear just now? His positioning was only so-so.”

“It was basically, ‘I’ve plenty of HP (thick blood) so come and hit me.’ 23333 (means hahahahaha, the more 3 means you are more happy. It is from the No.233 emoticon of Mop forum which is one of the biggest forum in China and that emoticon is a laughing figure.).”

“It’s still okay. Don’t be too harsh. After all, I was still defeated when I used the cannon to fight against Huang Zhong (a general of Shu in Romance of the Three Kingdoms, portrayed as an old fighter – marksman).”

Huang Zhong

Qiao Jing Jing hit her target in one shot and then came out of the tower to withdraw the troops, smoothly rising to the second level. Then she began to place the field of visions at some key positions. Seeing Zhuang Zhou once again appear in her field of vision, Qiao Jing Jing sniped at him again.

This shot did not hit the target.

Moreover, because positioning was opposite to what she had predicted, she was quite a bit off target.

Qiao Jing Jing was depressed and muttered. “Luckily, the first shot hit the target. If two consecutive shots didn’t hit the target, I reckon I would be ridiculed.”

Yu Tu said, “Your idol baggage is so heavy?”

Qiao Jing Jing said, “Yes…”

Before she finished speaking, she heard a familiar female voice shouting —— “First Blood! (initial advantage gained by one side in a game)”

She was surprised, and quickly looked. The screen showed Zhuge Liang attacking and killing the other team’s jungler, Xuan Ce.

Yu Tu got the first blood.
