Regarding this chapter, there is a lot of gaming terminology present (translator died a little), and it mainly focuses around one hero Da Ji. If it helps, I’ve linked her the introduction to her abilities here.
Also, it’s the translator’s birthday today so here’s an extra release this Sunday!


Regarding You Liangxing’s habits, Bai Yao believed that her knowledge about them was second to none. However, the name of the game underneath her gaze had never appeared in You Liangxing’s life before, and thus it made her surprised. “Ah Liang, when did you start gaming?” ejPmhU

Bai Yao’s tone was not light at all, and she even asked him in an open and honest manner. At the side, Yao Miaomiao stiffened up. From her appearance, it seemed like she wanted to say something but she was not certain of what to say either, and she could only play witness to Bai Yao exposing the fact that she had cracked into You Liangxing’s phone in less than a second of doing so.

You Liangxing replied: “Yesterday.”

Bai Yao hummed, finding that the answer fell within acceptable parameters. After tilting her head to think about it, she raised her hand to enter King’s Glory.

Yao Miaomiao was stunned. She stared at You Liangxing’s back for awhile to ascertain that You Liangxing had no reaction to her actions, which meant that he did not care about Bai Yao looking through his phone. 6dkM05

Yao Miaomiao lowered her voice and whispered: “Sister Yaoyao, he’s not angry about it?”

Bai Yao said offhandedly: “Angry about what?”

“The… the password.”

Bai Yao snickered, “Of course he’s not angry about it.”

qEk8Y4

You Miaomiao was extremely surprised: “Is his temper that good?”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Bai Yao: “How could it be? His temper is terrible.”

Yao Miaomiao was at a loss: “Then why…”

Bai Yao revealed a smile, “Obviously it’s because I already knew his password.” 2QVSBX

You Miaomiao: “…..”

Full of smiles, Bai Yao continued: “Since we’re already on this topic, he actually knows my password too.”

Her complexion was tight, “But that paper just now…”

Bai Yao waved the paper full of permutations and combinations for passwords, “Silly child,a phone will lock itself after three incorrect attempts, so how could I have tried it two thousand times? It was obviously a lie.” eC4K7Y

Yao Miaomiao: “…..”

Bai Yao smiled and said: “You’re just a new assistant; don’t be discouraged just because you were deceived. It’s not your fault; just blame me for my perfect acting.”

Yao Miaomiao: “… Ah, en, oh.”

This day, Yao Miaomiao deeply experienced what the terribleness of being dominated by Bai Yao’s life-like and nonstop acting was like. TNhAC1

Seeing that Yao Miaomiao’s reactions have become duller, Bai Yao’s acting addiction was satisfied and she curled up on the sofa and used the phone to enter the initial interface of the game.

She checked the level. It was only level eight; indeed, it was a new account. When her line of sight fell on his in-game name, her expression distorted, and she let out a particularly distinctive ‘ha’.

Everyone’s Goodness?

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

What the hell kind of name was that? Rvo0XY

Bai Yao tapped on the settings in preparation to change his name, but a name change needed a name changing card, which required her to top up in order to meet the fixed amount of points. Without any hesitation, Bai Yao immediately tapped on the top up page.

If it was someone else, they would have hesitated when there was a need to spend money. However, Bai Yao was different; other than the scripts, she lacked money the least, and she topped up the points until it was VIP8 account. Then, Bai Yao happily deleted the two words ‘Everyone’s Goodness’ until the input box was utterly clean.

Pay-to-win players, they did whatever they wanted.

But what should it be changed to? iJDrkd

Bai Yao thought about it in different directions before her eyes brightened and she quickly typed in a few words.

— Little Angel Liang Liang

Eyaa, it was just ingenious.

Bai Yao was deeply touched by her own talent in coming up with names, and in order to prevent You Liangxing from changing his name secretly, she brought an assortment of heroes. Only when she was certain that there was not enough points remaining, did she open the friends interface. CW3bet

You Liangxing only had one in-game friend. Bai Yao moved on to the friend requests section, and in just one night alone, there were more than a dozen applications lined up and arranged in columns.

Yet in spite of having so many requests, he only added one person. That【Monthly Refreshing Breeze】didn’t happen to be a girl right?

Were they acquainted?

“Time to eat.” UenTSR

You Liangxing’s voice travelled out from the kitchen and Bai Yao made a noise as response. Before she left the game, she paused, and accepted all the friend requests on the pending list without a hitch.

Eating a meal made by You Liangxing was a sort of luxury.

“What are you running for, I am honestly inviting to spend a happy afternoon with your beautiful sister.”

You Liangxing solemnly replied: “I refuse.”

Bai Yao: “Really, how unfortunate. I initially planned to leave tomorrow morning, but after hearing what you said, my legs suddenly feel heavy. I’ll leave tomorrow night.”

You Liangxing immediately sat down: “I’m not going anywhere.” K6uqXA

Bai Yao laughed, laying down and making herself comfortable on You Liangxing’s lap. Feeling idle and with nothing to do, she picked up You Liangxing’s phone again, and after hesitating between several applications, she finally settled on King’s Glory.

May as well take the advantage of the time to try the game.

Speaking of the game King’s Glory, she seemed to share an affinity with it recently. The company picked up the game live broadcasting promotion on her behalf, and in a few days, she had to practice the game with the website’s live broadcaster.

While the live broadcast had been decided, she only heard of the game; she had never played it before, and she was a complete newbie, through and through. K62VP8

Other than acting, Bai Yao did not have much interest in anything else. The announcement also intended on having the website’s anchor teach her how to play the game. However, now that she discovered that You Liangxing was playing it as well, her interest towards King’s Glory had increased exponentially.

“I want to play a match, Ah Liang, teach me for a bit.”

Nodding his head helplessly, You Liangxing said: “Okay.”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

You Liangxing’s account had already completed the novice’s tutorial, thus he could only explain the instructions in person to proceed. During the entire explanation, he mimicked yesterday’s experience and went through the general operation methods while overlooking his new in-game name which should not see the daylight. When he was done, he concluded with a “That’s it, it’s simple.” Mz8AWk

Bai Yao did not quite understand but simply said: “Start a round first.”

“En.”

Just as Bai Tao was preparing to be matchmade, an invitational message popped up on the interface. Someone had invited You Liangxing to rank together.

“I just love running? Who’s that?” G3xMJc

You Liangxing replied: “Dorm mate.”

“Ah, the one called Liao Su?”

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

Bai Yao was very clear about the situation around You Liangxing and immediately agreed. The two of them were quickly entered the matchmaking instance, and Bai Yao pressed the team speak to receive voice messages. After some rustling, a husky and hearty voice was transmitted over.

“Brother Liang! You’re actually online ah! Hahahahaha how did Little Angel Liang Liang happen! This name of yours, apparently you like this kind of style! Hahaha!” 9KvmIl

Liao Su had a lot to say, and once he opened his mouth, his tone seemed suffused with a quality of mockery. Bai Yao immediately lost the will to reply and she turned off her speech, leaving only the listening function open.

Without a response, Liao’s Su large windpipe rang out again, “Brother Liang, really? It’s only the two of us and yet you don’t speak, you’re over the top!” Despite saying this, his voice did not have a trace of anger since he was accustomed to You Liangxing’s behaviour.

“Ai, forget it, forget it. If you don’t want to turn it on, you don’t have to, have you reached home yet? Have you eaten? I just finished eating and logged on to raise my smurf’s rank. Since we are queueing together, the speed will be faster. Hei hei hei, there is always confidence to be had when playing with Brother Liang!”

The resentment he had for You Liangxing’s skill last night had been forgotten cleanly, which was very in line with Liao Su’s personality. KI3mhv

As the matchmaking continued, Bai Yao frowned, asking: “Is he good at the game?”

You Liangxing thought about it: “Passable.”

Since he was passable, she forgave him for the time being. Following You Liangxing’s explanation, she used her left hand for directions and right hand for skills. The game issued a “Welcome to King’s Glory”, and all the heroes jumped out.

In this game, she chose novice hero Da Ji who was easy to play, powerful in the later stages and equipped with a set of skills that could easily take down fragile mage heroes. 3Rwivz

The mage always played in the middle lane. Seeing that You Liangxing picked a mage, Liao Su picked a marksman confidently. As he was manipulating the short-legged Luban to walk down bottom lane, a sound suddenly landed in his ears.

— First Blood!!

The enemy side took first blood.

Liao Su pursed his lips, wanting to curse at the junk bronze in his heart. However, when he raised his eyes, his brain blue-screened. BqlYV8

What???

The person who contributed to the first blood turned out to be You Liangxing?

More importantly, he wasn’t killed by an enemy hero, he was shot to death by a tower!

Bewildered, Liao Su looked at the mini map. The middle lane was devoid of enemies and the enemy jungler had not exited their to catch anyone. Yet, even under the circumstances where no one was hitting him, he had been shot to death by the tower. 2Wl8 V

Liao Su hurriedly said: “Brother Liang, how are you lagging! Ze ze ze, is your connection worse than the school campus’s network!”

In the time that took him to say the sentence, Da Ji respawned. Watching her exit the fountain smoothly, he finally set his heart down. However, in a few seconds, the middle lane sounded with another notification of loss.

— An ally has been slain!

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Liao Su looked over blankly. The enemy hero Zhen Ji was pacing around with full health, while the ally Da Ji was already a corpse. fkePno

“??? Brother Liang?? Are you lagging that badly?”

You Liangxing was not lagging and there were no issues with his connection. The problem was Bai Yao’s manoeuvring.

In truth, it was not that Bai Yao was stupid or foolish. Her reaction was in line with a new seedling who hadn’t experienced the novice tutorial. You Liangxing was a misnomer; generally speaking, Bai Yao’s situation was normal.

Blankly, Bai Yao asked: “Why am I dead again?” odVe49

You Liangxing: “Zhen Ji was hitting you and yet you stood still.”

“And before that?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

“The tower was shooting you, you need to let the minions go up first.”

Bai Yao nodded and controlled Da Ji to go for a third round. She did not know how to position herself; once she reached the middle lane, even with the tower’s assistance, she was killed by the opponent. wqRxpZ

“How did she managed to come under the tower to attack me, doesn’t our tower shoot her?”

You Liangxing: “It shoots.”

“Then how did I die?”

“Her attack speed was faster than the tower’s.” QeMiX5

The death notification blared one after another throughout the entire game. When the game ended, Bai Yao had gifted a total of fifteen heads. Usually, when new seedlings died, they would retreat but Bai Yao became braver, rushing forward with a straight back despite dying and dying again.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

In the end, even with a 10 to 22 kill score causing an opposing headwind, they managed to win thanks to Liao Su.

During the game, it could be said that Liao Su’s mood had its ups and downs, from when he thought it was a connection issue to later, where he witnessed Da Ji offering up her head countless number of times. Liao Su’s tone changed.

“Brother Liang, did you get hacked! Stop messing around, even though you give me a lot of pressure when you play too well, you give me a lot of stress when you play so badly!” EGbKyL

The other party did not speak but after two seconds, they sent a message.

— You talk less nonsense.

It was pretty similar to what You Liangxing would have said.

Liao Su laughed for two notes, a little confused. “Are you going for another?” 10DwIv

— Playing.

She had to play. After dying so miserably, it was not possible to end like this.

Once the game started, the novice Bai Yao went to the top lane, but she still chose the hero Da Ji.

Seeing that You Liangxing picked the hero so decisively and within the first second, Liao Su’s misgivings halved. The feeling that You Liangxing was merely testing the waters in the previous game arose suddenly, and now he was ready to carry the match. OXYnPe

But reality was extremely cruel; by the end of the match, Da Ji’s score was 1-8-3, she died eight times, assisted thrice and kill only one person.

“Mother— Brother Liang!!!”

Liao Su was rendered speechless. Even though the standard at this rank was not considered high, he did not have the strength to hold up so many people. Disorderly attacks could not kill the master and the three teammates that they were matchmade with were subpar. And to make matters worse, You Liangxing kept gifting the enemies kills. All in all, it was equivalent to playing one against nine, and twenty minutes were wasted away like this.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

The gaming process was extremely harsh to the taste. 6WFjGZ

“I get it, you are deliberately torturing me!! Brother Liang, I’m wrong, please play properly QAQ!”

The game interface was still quiet, and the only reply Liao Su received was another game invite.

Liao Su accepted with a complex mood. After one match, You Liangxing’s results were 1-7-2.

After the second match, 1-7-5. 3Gcpxf

After the third match, 0-8-1.

It was not the worst, it only worsened!

Although every game ended in a victory, it relied on Liao Su to attain it. The gold division was but a step away, and You Liangxing’s play style was akin to a planted agent, since he kept giving the enemies benefits.

While playing, Liao Su was utterly silent. In his heart, he felt that You Liangxing’s period had arrived, and he was being pitted against explosively! fcCDG

They had been playing for close two hours. Looking at the time, he said: “Still playing?”

You Liangxing gave a rare response, typing: “Last match.”

One last match before the slow and long torture session ended. Liao Su raised his spirits, “Fine fine fine, let’s start!”

The fact that he no longer wanted to play was very obvious. Bai Yao pouted: “Well.” Y8G3fJ

She turned her head, asking: “Ah Liang, am I especially garbage at this game?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

You Liangxing paused, saying lightly: “No.”

If he said yes, that would be the truth. And even though he said no, Bai Yao still gave him a sidelong glance, and she savoured the answer before revealing a thick smile. “I’ve realised that you have always been a gentlemen to girls ever since you were a child. Even if you were annoyed, you would patiently listen until the person finished speaking.” Bai Yao stopped for a moment before she could not resist pouncing on You Liangxing.

“You really are a little angel! Why do I like you so much!!” 6Y1dMH

The game started as per usual. But just as Bai Yao chose her hero, someone suddenly typed: — I want Da Ji.

Bai Yao did not reply but the person continued typing: — The person called something Liang, give me Da Ji.

If You Liangxing was the one playing, perhaps he would make some allowances and swap to another hero, However, Bai Yao was different, she would never allow it and she proceeded to lock it in. The player who wanted her hero made no movements for a while before they chose another mage called Wang Zhaojun.

The atmosphere was a little awkward but Bai Yao did not care. She commanded Da Ji to walk to the middle lane, footsteps light-hearted. She hadn’t even taken a few steps when Wang Zhaojun, who was heading in the same direction, kept sending her signals. g N1C6

— Start Retreating!

— Start Retreating!

With the intention of stealing the middle lane.

The two mages consumed each other’s resources, and mutually restrained their developments. One person had to leave but Bai Yao ignored the pings, continuing to clear the minions. After Wang Zhaojun sent five to six more pings while Bai Yao remained unresponsive, Wang Zhaojun swayed from left to right before she went through the jungle and headed to the top lane. Ss4GtP

Bai Yao raised the corners of her mouth and hummed. You Liangxing slanted his head to look over, involuntarily showing a helpless expression.

The enemy had yet to show in the middle lane, and Da Ji started to land one strike after another on the defensive tower on the screen. Suddenly, Liao Su started swearing.

“Fuck!” The game prompt followed.

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

— First Blood! srPIQL

The one who died was the allied hero Hou Yi. Liao Su, who had carried the entire match for five games straight… gave up first blood to the enemy.

Before Bai Yao could ask, Liao Su began to speak loudly: “Fuck! Why does the last match have to be like this! I actually met a group of people who can play, and they even supported each other and grouped up against me!”

With the line serving as an opener, it was not even ten seconds before the top lane’s Bai Qi and Wang Zhaojun were both killed. Liao Su was not back in bottom lane for long before the enemy ganged up against him and claimed another kill.

Liao Su’s voice was getting louder: “Ah damn it! This match is actually disgusting!” IXCO3D

Not long after, the kill score was 2 to 9. The opponent kept up their pressure, and their team’s development was extremely slow. Mid-game, the enemy suddenly typed: — It’s been six minutes, just fucking throw.

Their tone was impatient and extremely arrogant.

Liao Su only had to glance at it before a fire lit up within him, the crackling of the flames growing hotter. Seeing that there was no response from them, the opponent typed more: — Is there any meaning to wasting time?

Liao Su was so angry that he laughed and replied: — Speak only after you have won, who doesn’t know how to be a braggart. U9dm4

The enemy quickly replied: — a bunch of noobs.

After being provoked by the opponents, it didn’t matter who it was, no one could take it lying down. Surrendering was no longer possible. Liao Su increased the speed of his development where his economy was concerned, and each and every one of his teammates started playing seriously. However, the opponents’ strategy was to attack with numbers, and the situation could not be reversed. In fact, the enemies even harvested a few more kills.

When the pressure reached its peak, the opponent typed again: — Nothing left to say? Hehe, just throw, yeah?

The odds were against them but Bai Yao’s Da Ji continued to die one time after another, and the middle lane’s towers were destroyed the fastest. Very quickly, the enemies pushed towards their base. INBQ7h

It could not be said that Bai Yao played poorly. To be frank, compared to the previous matches, this was Bai Yao’s best and most serious gameplay.

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

However, seriousness was not equivalent to strength; when Da Ji died again at the enemy’s hand, the allies’ mood also reached the breaking point. The resentment that the Wang Zhaojun previously accumulated finally erupted at that moment.

[Ally Wang Zhaojun]: — Da Ji can you stop giving them kills!! Does your gifting ever stop!!

[Ally Wang Zhaojun]: — Playing so badly and yet you have the cheek to steal the hero!!  Even stealing middle lane!! bDVi2R

[Ally Wang Zhaojun]:  — When I’m playing games, I’m most afraid of meeting a pitted idiot like you!! May as well throw and be done with it!!

Although her performance had been poor in the past few hours, Bai Yao had never encountered a situation where a teammate would start flaming her. With the enemies badmouthing them and their team facing an internal strife, Bai Yao stopped playing the game and gritted her teeth.

She had been seriously playing….

Bai Yao lowered her head, stilled, and then shoved the phone into You Liangxing’s hands, frowning, “Substitution!” TwXVpc


The author has something to say:

I… should briefly explain, ha~

On Bai Yao’s choices and gameplay

Regarding the older sister’s choice of hero, it wasn’t that she had to steal it and occupy it. From her perspective, she had just come in contact with the game, and after playing Da Ji for a few consecutive rounds, Da Ji is the only hero she knows how to play. Thus, when she refused to make an allowance, it bears no relation to her moral character. And everyone has played games before; just because someone wants a hero/character doesn’t necessarily mean she has to relent.

Additionally, on the topic of mages going to middle lane, it follows the same logic; just because she refused to switch her lanes doesn’t mean that she’s in the wrong. It really doesn’t bring her moral character in question. [TL adds: in fact, Wang Zhaojun picking another mage role and going to the middle lane despite knowing there was a mage on the team is the one who’s in the wrong here.) IQP7U

+++

Regarding the older sister gifting kills: She didn’t do it on purpose; she was seriously playing, and it’s not because she doesn’t have brains either. It was just that she had never went through the novice tutorial, and she didn’t have the slightest game awareness.

Plus, she happened to be using her little brother’s account to play, and because of the friendship that they (Liao Su & Liang Liang) have, mutually beating each other up/deriding would never anger one another. With that as their standard, playing a game like this really wouldn’t affect them much.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

(TL further adds: While Liang Liang’s account is new, he is already in the silver division which means people still have some level of skill, so a complete novice really has to be forgiven for her blunders~ The learning curve for games like King’s Glory is actually pretty steep.) 5lT8W3

Hope everyone can read the novel in a relaxed manner, and not harp about the wrong details because it’ll affect your reading experience, yeah…

T/N: Hope it was helpful!

Exact words are ‘大姨夫’ (pinyin: da yi fu) which directly translates to the great husband of one’s mother’s sister. The Chinese internet slang, from what I understand, is that it was inspired from a new product called “male sanitary pads” that came out in 2009, and it became a joke that men also had a few days of discomfort due to periods. And where women called their monthly visitor ‘great aunt’ aka menstruation in slang, the men’s version is great aunt’s husband.

  1. Haha! Thanks for the update. I’ve been in Bai Yao’s position before. I am an absolutely terrible gamer, but I somehow still enjoy it. Especially with friends. Just ignore the flamers, Bao Yao! And then have Liang Liang beat them up for you.

    • happy birthday,, have a blast today! wish you blow more candles in the future and have everything you wish for come true! 😀

      also as a moba player i know that feeling of being trashtalked by both the enemies and teammates, and sometimes i would troll first then play serious later so that they could swallow their words when my wins and i get mvp lmaooo it’s fun seeing people trashtalk :’D

  2. Hahahah I actually feel her XD Dying on the first tower… Getting lost in the forest… Though I honestly don’t think I’ve ever gifted my enemies kills XD Very relatable uwu

  3. 😂 I think it’s a bad sign when an author, having created a character, has to give lengthy explanations on how the said character isn’t stupid ah, isn’t stupid at all! She just behaves like a mentally challenged person, please don’t mind her. And dear readers, you mustn’t think her moral character is subpar – she’s just being “playful” and “lively”, asking for trouble and letting others sort out the mess!

    I personally don’t find it convincing, but that’s just an opinion.

    Thank you for the chapter! 🌸

    • Bai Yao didn’t act like a mentally challenged person though xD

      And IMHO, she probably had to explain because she had readers who didn’t game, and Bai Yao’s actions came off as petty.

      • Well, if you’ve never played, then using an account of a (rather) higher level than you’re capable of pulling off isn’t really a smart thing to do – that is, if you don’t want to drag your teammates down and get flamed. But Bai Yao’s brain circuitry is so… ahem, non-standard that it might have been her goal all the while 🤣

        P.S. I bet her cooperation with the ML will be a sight to see (not for the faint of heart, though) 😋

        • I can’t count how many times I got destroyed on my bro’s high leveled accounts. The philosophy is quite simple – you see a colorful icon, you click it, you get killed. My brother doesn’t mind that I lower his rank a bit and I get to have some fun without having to free up space on my own phone to install the game, then spend an hour on boring tutorials only to uninstall it the next day.

          What you said makes sense if she genuinely was trying to become a good player in that game. But that is not her goal at all, she just has a passing interest. Just like if you wanted to doodle a princess on the margin of your notebook, would you start by attending the courses on drawing human anatomy? I wouldn’t.

          • Well, I wouldn’t sulk (like Bai Yao did after getting deservedly flamed) if the princess I doodled was ugly as hell because I didn’t know the first thing about drawing 😂

            I find Bai Yao a pretentious fool whom the author tries to pass off as a charming girl, but (IMO, of course) painting stripes on a cat won’t turn it into a tiger. Some readers like this character though , so let’s just agree to disagree 😏

            As for You Liangxing not minding her behaviour, my overall impression is that he TOLERATES his family, and when they get too much he simply… distances himself from them. Not the kind of familial love I’d fancy, but blood is said to be thicker than water, so he probably doesn’t have a choice (apart from severing ties with them)

        • I agree that Bai Yuo’s character is a bit overbearing but treating her as ‘mentally challenged’ because she’s trying to get familiar on the game she was asked to play for a job, in a confortable setting, that is with her brother around to guide her, is a bit too much in my opinion. Morover, YLX himself only started playing the day before and his account is silver at most, and evidently he doesn’t care, so why should you? And Bai Yuo didn’t react badly when she was trash talked either, she didn’t even talk back or say anything at all, she’s just inexperienced and decided to switch when put under pressure. As someone who doesn’t game I think my reaction wouldn’t differ too much from her’s and I don’t think that makes me childish or mentally challenged, just unfamiliar with gaming and insecure on its proceedings.
  4. Lol surprise turnaround in game play next chapter.

    Thanks for the new chapter.

  5. Translator sama, happy birthday!! Wish you the best for today! But it’s not an exclusive-time-limited wish. I wish you the best for Eveready, naturally!!

  6. I’m actually not angry with Bao Yao because I’ve been there. I play with my brother too and I’ve lost count how many arguments we had because I played too poorly, or in gaming terms, was being a “cancer.” So this just had me laughing because I relate so much. Thanks for the chapter and happy birthday!!! Much love translator!

  7. happy birthday,, have a blast today! wish you blow more candles in the future and have everything you wish for come true! 😀

    also as a moba player i know that feeling of being trashtalked by both the enemies and teammates, and sometimes i would troll first then play serious later so that they could swallow their words when my wins and i get mvp lmaooo it’s fun seeing people trashtalk :’D

    idk why my comment before was a reply to someone else’s comment but yeah thanks for the chapter 😀

  8. Hghh poor Liang Liang, I hate nosy people like his sister. As the oldest child I always try to be mindful when teasing my siblings, to see her do all that just bcs she knew he won’t say anything put me off 😔

    Thanks for the chapter ❤

    • Awwww, but the sis is likely to be cannonfodder whose task is to help bring the MC and ML together. I hope she won’t get much screen time after that, ’cause frankly, the last two chapters have the unique quality of being tiresome and boring at the same time 😿 So maybe stick for a while and wait for the things to get back to normal? 😏

  9. Happy Birthday~!!! 🎂🎂🎂

    Welp, the faces of those players would hurt soon…Thanks for the chapter~ ( ^ ♡ ^ )/

  10. After failing again and again in playing Sekiro before reading this ch, I feel ya sister. But I still don’t agree what you’re doing to your brother and with his stuff D:

    Thx for the ch \(≧▽≦)/ And wish you a Happy Birthday :3

  11. Awww man I would be peeved if a family member just entered into my accounts and yanked my rankings like that. I don’t let anyone, even my twin sister, touch my accounts. Not to mention this sister didn’t say a thing to our MC’s friend about her not being the MC. Liao gave her so many opportunities to come clean with his comments. She just kept costing them games and left him to think it was her brother. She really is too spoiled not picking up her own messes. Her lack of boundaries is disrespectful and she has no consideration for her brother. She is the definition of someone not respecting you. I really can’t handle people like her in real life and sadly they exist. Very spoiled, entitled, and disrespectful. So glad she seems to be a very small side character. -sighs- she can’t be so emotionally dense to not realize what she’s doing is wrong, and if she is that dense I still don’t like her, that’s still a bad personality trait. At her age she should know to put herself in others shoes. She would hate someone going on her social media and posing as her id bet! A lot of these games are basically social media with games attached (that’s probably a easier way for none gamers to understand the wrongness of this).
    • I feel bad for her assistant! She’s so annoying it makes my skin crawl, and exactly like you said, spoilt selfish and entitled. She just takes advantage of the people around her knowing they won’t retaliate, it must SUCK to have someone like her as a superior. Well, every person who ever comes in contact w her must be a saint welp coz i’d have slapped her across the face a few times even if i just had to put up w her for the duration of 1 chapter

  12. People have their own play style that’s not in match with the recommended lane, like me I prefer MM and go top or bottom because mid lane at the beginning have so many players going on it >.< and certain hero they know how to play. In selection I always believe its 1st come 1st serve especially when your a solo player

  13. Mmm I really want to not be annoyed with her but I can’t help it. Bai Yao being so invasive really got on my nerves but when I saw how Liang Liang just ignored it I couldn’t help but feel that I shouldn’t hate her. But as expected, as the chapter went on I couldn’t bear it. I get that newbies are newbies and she is obviously not going to be a god first try but when she kept on playing, not to mention that it was ranked too, I almost closed the tab..! Also, when she pretended to be Liang Liang when talking to Liao Su. Why?? Haaa~ Liang Liang is too kind…

    And when I saw Monthly Refreshing Breeze.. Ahh that girl from before is going to misunderstand again. I hope this older sister shows up less because her spoiled attitude that the author is trying to pass off as her just being strong-headed and positive has been quite grating.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  14. So sad about the comments about his sister as I rather like her. Everyone’s relationship with their siblings is different but there’s several things to take into consideration here:

    – They’re at a relationship where they know each other’s phone passwords. I don’t know about you but that’s really close. I’m also as close with my siblings and share all my passwords and accounts with them.

    – He legit started this account yesterday? He’s not as attached as some gamers are. Actually I would even classify him as a gamer yet, just a casual who’s good at playing. He’s only been playing for a day! I don’t think he cares about this account or about the game at this moment. Everything comes so easy to him. After he tries all the options out, he’s probably going to abandon the game unless there’s something else tying him down (which obv will be ML).

    – Looking at the sister’s actions objectively, all she did was surprise him inside his house (but she didn’t wreck it, snoop, or anything), tease her assistant, get her brother to cook dinner (as expected of younger siblings for their older sister HAHAH), and play on his newbie gaming account. Bruh, it’s not that serious. (I say this while I’m defending a fictional character smh. All I really want to say is, I guess don’t be so quick to judge???)

    • Honeslty. Though I agree that her character might come off a bit too strong, she didn’t legimately do anything wrong and YLX doesn’t seem to mind it either way. People always love to hate on female characters in BL novels tho 🙄

  15. I’m the same with Bai Yao. More like, worse than her. I ignore my teammates and just attack and attack on my own. Hahahahahaha 😂😂😂😂

  16. Why people around YLX are so noisy~ only YLX that give me peace *hughughug

    Now the golden thigh has arrived! Thanks for the chapter and happy birthday translator-sama!

  17. Your translation is lovely, and so is this story. Thank you so much for translating!

    I feel bad for his sister. MOBAs are really hard to learn games, and she’s just trying her best. :(I wanted to mention you made an author’s note around the sound ze ze ze, and I think that there’s an English equivalent. It’s “tsk.” it’s usually said in a pair like “Tsk tsk, you’re really doing this?”

  18. as a gamer myself, its quite annoying when noobs play high level difficulties without self knowledge and affecting the whole team, it is indeed a waste of time and carrying them is very stressful. But its not Bai Yao’s case, they are in noob lvls so her performance is expected, using the heroe she already got accostumed to is extremely normal, everybody does that…

  19. I can’t STAND this sister, no joke probably one of the most annoying characters i’ve ever read. If she has this much screentime in the coming chapters i’m dropping this story sigh a pity, liangliang and KK are cute n liao su is funny, what a waste

  20. Whether he ends up abandoning the account or not isn’t the point. Okay yh. They know each other’s passwords, so ignoring that she just went through his phone like it was hers, and he just started the game so ignore her going on there and doing whatever, but knowing what you know about liang liang so far, do you think he’ll ever change that ridiculous name or explain anything? He most probably won’t. I hate useless and avoidable misunderstandings. They’re not amusing since, like I said, they’re avoidable. With his voice and now this name what would you say his gender was. The fact the ML doesn’t know his gender now already annoys me, deeper misunderstandings will just piss me off.
  21. Well I tried playing Mobile Legends so I can relate to his sister’s choice earlier ._. I gotta say, I have no future as a gamer QAQ

  22. I’m baffled by all these sister haters, MC literally started this new account/game YESTERDAY. The fact that he was OK with her playing it should already tell everyone that she can do whatever she wants and it’s not a big deal? Did y’all miss the fact that the MC himself gave her a tutorial on his own account instead of having her make a new one? MC is right next to her, knew everything that was happening, seriously not a big deal.

    I was in the exact same situation with my friend’s account (he was ranked on Overwatch) but I never played OW and he had me use his account to do the newbie tutorial and try against real players. Yes, I died a fcking ton and probably marginally lowered his ranking, but since he let me play his account as n00b, that’s to be expected??? If I lend my gaming account to my friend and he fcks up (which has happened), I’m NOT going to blame my friend since I was the one who let him play on it.

  23. This is why I only let one person carry my accounts. Lolol. Go show them how it’s done Liang Liang!
