Chapter 180: Deep Thought (Part one)
Xu Cheng naturally didn’t know Lin Chuxue’s small action would explode his Weibo, and that some people had even begun searching for him.
But, on the next day, the man of the spotlight got fully armed and went into the forest on a truck.
Today was the second part of the training, they would be defending, and Hu Bing was attacking.
Hu Bing said that they would use only 2 hours to break through their defense, and this tough talk made Wei Yuan and the others laugh so hard.
Wei Yuan said, “If that brat Hu Bing can break through our defense in 2 hours, I will tie a lead ball to my d:ck and spin in front of the whole military camp.”
Liao Shuhang: “Even if we don’t do anything, with so many mines on the ground, it will already take them a while to cautiously make it through. Plus besieging our camp, two hours? I don’t know what that kid is smoking but I want some too.”
On the truck, they chit chatted. On another truck, Hu Bing was also having a talk with his guys, trying to pump them up. “We lost yesterday because of my recklessness, I admit. But we can’t lose again today. Do you guys want to be laughed at by the veterans? You are all elite soldiers picked out from the newer generation, we are not like them!”
The other rookies mumbled, “But it’s still impossible to break their defense in 2 hours… Besides, although those veterans might not be able to beat us head on, they have a lot of experience. Yesterday, just Captain Xu Cheng alone took down 6 of us, there’s still quite a gap.”
Hu Bing said in a deep voice, “I think 2 hours is enough. They took 4 hours, why can’t we do better? If we can’t, then why would we still be the ones representing the 5th Military Region in the competition? What you are doing is killing our own morale to boost the enemy’s, and this isn’t something you should do.”
After being scolded, the others didn’t talk anymore.
After the truck arrived at the forest, they all got off to discuss their tactics.
On the other hand, Xu Cheng and his team were also discussing their strategy. It was quite obvious that everyone treated him as the center. Xu Cheng had 3 years of experience for that competition so he knew a lot of tactics. Thus, when he was talking, everyone listened intently and rarely interrupted. Of course, everyone was free to speak.
Wei Yuan: “We promised to be each other’s guardian angel, don’t let me be the cannon fodder again.”
Xu Cheng: “Your big mouth does a great job attracting fire. Who’s going to be the cannon fodder if not you?”
Wei Yuan was a big mouth in the army and loved to talk and mock people. He was a very straightforward guy, but his mouth was a bit harsh at times and indeed attracted quite a lot of hate from the blood-boiled new recruits that were still in their arrogant stage.
Liao Shuhang asked Xu Cheng, “What strategy are we using?”
Xu Cheng smiled. “We don’t need one at all.”
Everyone was shocked as they looked at him. “We can beat them without one?”
Xu Cheng: “Just use what they used on us yesterday. Their mines and traps deployment was quite on point yesterday, but today, we just need to slightly modify it.”
Wei Yuan: “What should we do?”
Xu Cheng: “Just like yesterday, we will put the minefield down mid lane. Excluding me, we can’t win a head-on battle against them, and this is what they will take advantage of, so they will choose to directly attack us face on. If I’m Hu Bing, I would choose the simple and violent confrontation in mid lane, and then try to secure victory within the shortest time possible. My plan is, don’t touch the traps they placed on the side lanes, but concentrate the minefield in the mid lane. We will abandon mid lane and have 7 people defending each side. If they really choose to walk down mid, then we will treat them to some mines as our two sides slowly collapse onto them. If they choose to attack from the side, use the mid lane as a shield and slowly retreat towards mid. It will be easy to lure them into the mine field.”
