She didn’t know if it was just her illusion, but Qiao Jingjing felt like she had been getting along differently with Yu Tu since they drank wine that day.
There wasn’t anything specific but, for example, sometimes he would take the initiative to ask if she wanted him to bring her breakfast? For example, he seemed a little more poisonous when he was training her?
The 3v3 training was basically over, so they had spent a few days playing 5v5 matching. Yu Tu asked Qiao Jingjing, “After so many days, what heroes do you like playing?”
Qiao Jingjing named a few and then said, “But I sill like Zhuge Liang and Li Bai best.”
Because they were the most handsome characters in the Canyon!
“You can’t use heroes with displacement abilities.” Yu Tu ruthlessly poured cold water over her and Qiao Jingjing wilted.
“You should give up the jungler position and directly choose a professional player who is good at it during the game. The top laner has to resist pressure, which you’re not really suited for so you should also give this position to your teammates. So the most suitable position for you is to work in the middle or bottom lane, mage, marksman, support. Work hard in these three positions. For the mages, you can consider General Bian Que and Ying Zheng. The heroes with a long reach are most suitable for you.”
“What about Wang Zhaojun?” Although Yu Tu had said that she wasn’t good enough for the competition, Qiao Jingjing was reluctant to give her up. After all, she was the first hero she was able to play well.
“You wouldn’t ask this if you watched more professional games.” Yu Tu vetoed ruthlessly.
“For support you can consider Donghuang Taiyi, Zhang Fei, Bai Qi, Niu Mo, Sun Bin, and Su Lie Mengqi as well. They are all relatively strong so it is best to become proficient with them.”
“Her skills are not difficult to master.”
Well, although her skills with Zhang Fei had been horrible after training with A Guo the first time, it was actually okay once she had been trained by Yu Tu for a while.
Yu Tu authoritatively decided the right heroes for her in these two positions. Though when it came to marksman, he asked her, “Do you like Yu Ji?”
Qiao Jingjing nodded, “Because her three skills are easy to use and because the second skill lets me run away.”
Yu Tu thought, “You do run away quickly.”
Qiao Jingjing, “…is that praise?”
Yu Tu said, “Mm. You never sell out teammates when they’re strangers, but you don’t hesitate to sell me out. I’ve always wanted to ask what kind of thought process is that?”
“…Have I?” Qiao Jingjing felt a little guilty and wanted to argue, but she had to face up to her routine behavior of rabbit-selling and said under Yu Tu’s condemning gaze, “Probably…I trust you?”
“Thank you.” Yu Tu didn’t seem moved.
Qiao Jingjing thought about all the heroes he mentioned and was a little depressed. “None of these seem to be very showy or good-looking.”
Yu Tu was speechless. Then he thought about how when she was relaxing, she loved to study good skin. When drinking wine, she brought out flowers. He said helplessly, “If you want showy, there’s one hero you can consider.”
“Which one?” Qiao Jingjing’s eyes lit up.
Baili Shouyue was a new hero that was released recently. His special skill was ultra-long-range sniping. Qiao Jingjing immediately opened a match.
Twenty minutes later, she put down her phone and looked at Yu Tu, “Are you sure I can use him?”
“You are very accurate. In fact, your Yu Ji skill has a high hit rate too.”
Qiao Jingjing thought about how she didn’t really think much about aiming and relied more on intuition. Sometimes when she deliberately took aim, she ended up completely off the mark.
“You didn’t play well in this game now firstly because your teammates didn’t give you money, and secondly because your positioning wasn’t flexible enough. Although Yu Ji and Baili Shouyue require positioning, their requirements are still less than Sun Shangxiang and Marco Polo, so your chances with them can be salvaged. With the other two heroes, it’s hard to say.”
…You are too poisonous. Thinking of yesterday when he said that her Nako Lulu was “a moth flying into the flame” and “a swallow throwing itself into a boiling pot”, Qiao Jingjing wanted to hit somebody.
“In addition to positioning, what you lack most now is intentionality. That is, the 100,000 questions that you ask while playing.”
Yu Tu said blankly, “Where am I going? What am I going to do? Do I want to open it?”
Qiao Jingjing, “…”
Yu Tu looked at the time and said, “So from today on, we will practice for half a day and watch professional games for the other half.”
Qiao Jingjing felt that previously it was like a martial arts class and now, it was like learning the art of war, how to bring the line, how to ambush…
She was ready to go to battle any minute.
But Kings of Glory, after all, had only been released for over a year, and there weren’t many common routines to study. Qiao Jingjing wasn’t stupid. After watching the videos that Yu Tu selected for two days, she understood almost all of them.
Of course, understanding is only one part. When in a real fight, the situation constantly changes. The final analysis was that she still needed to practice more.
5v5 battling is much more intense than 3v3. After a few days, every night when Qiao Jingjing closed her eyes, all she could see was the explosion of the base crystal.
Therefore, when she had an event that she needed to attend, it felt like getting a holiday.
Early in the morning of November 10th, Qiao Jingjing happily called Yu Tu, “You haven’t left yet, right? I’m going to Hangzhou today to attend the Double Eleven Party at Papa Ma’s house so I need the day off. I forgot to tell you yesterday.”
In fact, Yu Tu had already arrived at the subway station. It took him nearly an hour to get to Qiao Jingjing’s house.
The background was very noisy and it seemed like she was busy. Yu Tu said, “Okay.”
Qiao Jingjing said, “Then I’ll hang up first. If you are interested, you can also watch it. I’ll be singing today.”
Yu Tu laughed and said, “Okay.”
Suddenly, he no longer had to go out and it seemed like he would just be idle all day. After he returned home, he went to the official website for Kings of Glory to read some information. As a result, he saw when Qiao Jingjing came on to WeChat after 5 p.m.
Jingjing: Are you there?
Yu Tu: Yes.
Jingjing: I don’t have anything to do now. Let’s play a game.
She quickly threw a connection to QQ and clicked to have Yu Tu join. The two matched with three strangers and entered the map of 5v5 Kings’ Canyon.
This time, Yu Tu chose Marco Polo and Qiao Jingjing chose Niu Mo. After playing for a while, Qiao Jingjing couldn’t help complaining, “I think Niu Mo is more difficult than Zhang Fei. I don’t know where to use the ultimate.”
Yu Tu: “Fight however you want.”
Qiao Jingjing: “Because you can still win?”
Yu Tu: “No, I’ll record it.”
Qiao Jingjing: “…and then come back to give me a lesson?”
Yu Tu: “Uh-huh.”
At this time, Li Bai, who was jungling, suddenly spoke up.
Magical Little Insect: “Marco, I think your girlfriend is worse than my girlfriend.”
Yu Tu was about to say that Niu Mo was not his girlfriend, but he felt weird saying this to a stranger so he hesitated and instead heard Qiao Jingjing say, “But you are not as good as my boyfriend.”
Yu Tu: “…”
Actually, this wasn’t surprising considering Qiao Jingjing’s style of playing. There were inevitably trolls in the game. Every time she was scolded, she scolded the person back, but the way she scolded was really…hard to describe. For example, if someone calls her garbage, she’ll come back and say you’re the one who’s garbage. If someone calls her stupid, she’ll come back to say you’re the one who’s stupid.
So it’s reasonable that when someone says, “you’re not as good as my girlfriend,” she’d reply, “you’re not as good as my boyfriend.”
Magical Little Insect retorted: “You’re full of it. He’s playing marksman whereas I’m not familiar with Li Bai. If you don’t believe me, later I’ll play you again and show you what a god-level Marco looks like.”
His girlfriend didn’t speak but typed a line.
Little Bird Bug (Zhaung Zhou): Husband, jiayou!
Just then, the other player who had been inactive suddenly joined the chat.
Be Naked, Stay Cool (Ying Zheng): Stop it or I’ll leave.
Be Naked, Stay Cool (Ying Zheng): Today is Double Eleven, Singles Day. Yet there are lovers everywhere on the street. I hid at home to play games, and I matched with two couples.
Be Naked, Stay Cool (Ying Zheng): It’s putting me in a mood. I’m going to quit.
Then his character squatted in the spring and didn’t move.
Qiao Jingjing: “…”
She typed quickly.
Hand Picked Cotton (Niu Mo): Wait, you made a mistake. Tomorrow is Singles Day!
Be Naked, Stay Cool (Ying Zheng): Really?
Qiao Jingjing suspected that he went to check his calendar.
Be Naked, Stay Cool (Ying Zheng): Well, I’ll keep fighting then.
After many twist and turns, they finally won and Marco Polo unsurprisingly took MVP.
As soon as she withdrew from the game, Qiao Jingjing received an invitation from Magical Little Insect. She grew excited, accepted the invitation, and entered the room.
Magical Little Insect: Your boyfriend refused me. Is he too scared to come?
Hand Picked Cotton: Wait.
Qiao Jingjing sent a screenshot of the dialogue to Yu Tu on WeChat.
Yu Tu: Pull me in.
When Yu Tu entered the room, Magical Little Insect immediate clicked to start. They entered the Ban and Pick phase, and Magical Little Insect and Yu Tu selected their heroes at the same time.
Magical Little Insect obviously chose marksman Marco Polo. Yu Tu…
Unexpectedly chose Li Bai!
This is like two boxers entering the ring! Qiao Jingjing was excited. Thinking about it, she had never seen Yu Tu play Li Bai in a 5v5 match.
Magical Little Insect (Marco Polo): You’re deliberately trying to provoke me.
Jade Rabbit (Li Bai): I rarely play him. Giving it a try.
Little Bird Bug (Zhuang Zhou): Husband, jiayou! ╮(╯▽╰)╭
Qiao Jingjing immediately followed up: Boyfriend, jiayou! ╮(╯▽╰)╭
Poor randomly matched stranger: ……………… All couples?
Qiao Jingjing was afraid that he’d leave, so she comforted him: Be strong, don’t give up.
Stranger: No, it’s okay. I have my cat.
The round was played very fast. Marco was good, but Yu Tu was better. A dashing sword immortal in white, coming and going without a trace. At once, he’s in front of you, suddenly he’s behind. He was like a dragon, coming and going, and leaving the other party’s skin crisp 10,000 times in a second.
The enemy was killed directly in the early stage and surrendered in ten minutes.
Magical Little Insect (Marco Polo): ….this hurts my ego.
Little Bird Bug (Zhuang Zhou): Honey, you’re the best!
Qiao Jingjing finally sucessfully bullied others.
Hand Picked Cotton (Bian Que): Be strong, jiayou /(ㄒoㄒ)/~~
After exiting the game, Qiao Jingjing couldn’t help recalling how elegant Li Bai was in the game. After a while, she opened WeChat excited to say something, and she saw a message sent by Yu Tu.
Yu Tu: Why are you so naughty?
Qiao Jingjing’s heart trembled and she forgot what she had just wanted to say, and then came the WeChat prompt ~ the other party withdrew a message.
