Chapter 176: Almost No Suspense (Part one)
Xu Cheng could naturally hear Wei Yuan’s voice. He took out a dagger and said to his mic, “Hold on, everyone, I will go from their backdoor. Don’t be too aggressive and fight them head-on, I will take care of them. If we are going to win, let’s stomp them. Victory by a small margin isn’t my style.”
After hearing this, the veterans hiding behind the trees giggled. “Old Xu, tell us first, how’s Hu Bing’s face looking right now?”
Xu Cheng grinned and said as he travelled deeper into enemy territory, “I didn’t dare to take a look. I’m scared that he’s going to eat me.”
The veterans all laughed.
Inside the monitoring center, the head instructor bitterly laughed. “This guy was for sure purposely eyeing that brat.”
Other analysts: “Head Instructor, should we try and stop Hu Bing later before he tries to fight Xu Cheng?”
Head Instructor: “If they are going to fight, then just let them fight. Isn’t it our military’s style to convince one and another with fists? Don’t get in the way, it will be best if they can resolve the conflict early.”
When the rookies that were heading over to reinforce the right side heard that their ace, Hu Bing, just got eliminated, they were all dumbfounded. However, they immediately got a hold of themselves, and one guy tried to pump up the morale. “Hold on, guys, it’s fine. Without Hu Bing, we are still elites! Believe in yourself, do you guys want Hu Bing to look down on you? Don’t let the veterans think that we are a tiger without claws and teeth the moment we lose Hu Bing.”
Head Instructor: “These rookies are pretty interesting. They know to stabilize the emotions of their comrades at a critical moment like this. In dangerous times, soldiers need this kind of support more than ever.”
Tactician: “I don’t think Xu Cheng will give them any chance.”
On the rookies’ side, the guy that just talked continued to communicate to everyone else, “Two people stay behind for cover. Xu Cheng’s coming, he’s the team captain so he’s worth a high score. Who wants to take him down?”
Two rookies excitedly nodded. “I will.”
Then, with these two staying behind in the mid lane, the others all went to the right side for reinforcements.
The two of them found a heavy patch of grass and set up an ambush in it. They set up their rifles and stared right ahead at the front. After waiting for a moment and not seeing Xu Cheng, the two of them were a bit confused.
“Did you guys spot Xu Cheng coming in yet? We don’t see him coming down the mid lane,” the two rookies reported.
“No, no one new showed up on our side, I think Xu Cheng’s probably on his way down mid. Once you take him down, the veterans’ morale will probably become more unstable.”
The two rookies ambushing for Xu Cheng felt a heavy weight on their shoulders. They had heard of the solo combat strength of the Three Swordsmen, and today, they were almost about to witness the legend. They were quite looking forward to it actually.
However, from the camera monitoring the area those two rookies were in, only the tacticians, analysts, and the head instructor saw that Xu Cheng had already went around them and was crawling towards them.
Several analysts immediately noted down, “The rookies aren’t vigilant enough. They didn’t even notice when an enemy soldier had crawled behind them.”
Head Instructor: “Xu Cheng was too quiet. His stealth ability had always been top-notch.”
The two rookies indeed didn’t notice that Xu Cheng had bypassed the large forested area and lurked from behind them. A rookie was staring right into his scope as his gun was aimed at the general direction he thought Xu Cheng would be coming from, waiting to pull the trigger when the target shows up. Then, the higher ups would get a good impression of him, and then spend more resources on training him and thus push him onto a bigger stage. Then he could win the heart of a beautiful heiress and retire to become a CEO…
