Chapter 180: Deep Thought (Part two)
Everyone nodded and thought it was a good plan. Liao Shuhang asked, a bit puzzled, “What about you then?”
Xu Cheng grinned. “Don’t worry about me, just follow my plan.”
Wei Yuan giggled. “This bandit probably wants to troll Hu Bing again.”
Xu Cheng: “Alright, let’s go and find our base first. Liao Shuhang, Wei Yuan, go and lay the traps, I will deploy the mines.”
Everyone began moving.
On Hu Bing’s side, after thinking of a strategy, they directly went into the jungle. Just as Xu Cheng had predicted, Hu Bing’s plan was to use brute force. They wanted to use their superior marksmanship and dexterity to take the veterans head on.
The other teammates asked, “Which way are we attacking from?”
“Why ask? Of course we are going down mid!” Hu Bing said confidently. “Our snipers are better than theirs, and we are more agile. Just have the snipers cover us from behind and we can easily take down their defense.”
“What if they deployed traps and mines in the mid lane?”
Hu Bing snorted, “Then they will die even faster. If they use our strategy, then we have an even bigger advantage of taking them down. I predict they are all grouped up because they can’t win solo, so they will either guard the middle, or just guard one side. I will say it first, leave Xu Cheng to me, I will personally take his head!”
The others all nodded. Knowing how arrogant Hu Bing was, no one fought with him for Xu Cheng.
“Alright, let’s move!” Hu Bing said in a deep voice, and the 15 of them all went into the jungle.
Where did Xu Cheng go? Copying Hu Bing, he also dug a pit in the mid lane and went into hiding. Hu Bing never would’ve thought that Xu Cheng would adopt his tactic and return the favor.
“This guy seems to want to teach Hu Bing a lesson,” the technician said as he saw Xu Cheng crawling into a hole.
Head Instructor: “That’s probably for the best. Beating Hu Bing at his own game and face slapping him can probably get him to reflect on himself.”
The technician looked at the veterans’ strategy and smiled. “Interesting, they completely read Hu Bing like a book. Knowing that they would focus on attacking mid, they just set up a dummy defense in the middle. If it was on the battlefield, they could remotely-detonate the whole area to achieve complete annihilation.”
Head Instructor: “That’s also Hu Bing’s biggest weakness. He’s too headstrong and not calm enough, and the enemies can easily take advantage of this. He tends to be individualistic and could very likely lead his team to getting aced. After this training, have a chat with him.”
The strategist nodded.
The head instructor turned around and asked, “How far is Xu Cheng’s hideout from the base?”
Tactician: “800 meters.”
The head instructor said, “Xu Cheng did do some deep thinking. He knew Hu Bing wouldn’t charge in with the whole team and would get his snipers to cover from a distance. Normally, a sniper’s effective range is about one kilometer, but Hu Bing’s snipers probably wouldn’t stay this far back. So, reducing that distance a bit, the point Xu Cheng set is probably the most optimal range for the snipers, making it easier for him to take out far-range threats first.”
