Chapter 225: Do You Want to Try another Shot? (Part one)

Tie Shi couldn’t believe that what Liu Wei said was true. He looked at him suspiciously and said, “Is this a trick your team’s trying to play? Wanting to make us drop our guard against you guys so that you can eliminate us? You think I will believe you? You think there is really such a black horse out there that I wouldn’t know? Let me tell you, no one can amaze me this year, and even if there are a few dark horses, they are all free points in my eyes.” [TL Note: dark horse: usually little known contender (such as a racehorse) that makes an unexpectedly good showing] 

Liu Wei: “Are you familiar with the 5th MR?”

“The 5th MR?” Tie Shi thought for a moment. He frowned and replied, “That Three Swordsmen joke of a military region? Don’t tell me that the guy that eliminated Ye Qiu and Wang An was from that region? It is indeed embarrassing for those two to be eliminated by such a low tier military region. I really don’t know how Ye Qiu and Wang An’s skills deteriorated this drastically within just one year.”

“Their skills didn’t deteriorate, at least they can still easily take care of you. Ye Qiu, Wang An, and me, we sailed smoothly all the way here and took out 68 opponents. We eliminated 4 teams, whether they were captains or normal soldiers, those two themselves took out 41 people. Do you still think that our team is doing worse than last year? If we didn’t run into that monster, Ye Qiu and Wang An wouldn’t have been eliminated at all. If you don’t believe me, you can send me out right now and pretend that I didn’t say anything.” Liu Wei glanced at everyone and said, ‘Also, that monster is probably almost caught up to me now. If you don’t believe me, you can all wait here and see.”

“Alright, then I will just wait here. Let me tell you, the new me this year is a complete change from the me from last year.” Tie Shi thought Liu Wei didn’t seem like he was lying, so he asked, “What’s his name?”

Liu Wei: “I don’t know. I just saw that he had the 5th MR’s badge, and I think he’s the only one left from his team.”
Tie Shi laughed and said, “Then that’s awesome. Especially at this stage of the competition, sole survivors like to hide and try to pass the time to get a higher ranking, so I’m glad that he’s coming for us instead. If you lie to me, I will also send you out.”

Liu Wei: “It doesn’t matter to me. I just thought that for high-profile military regions that have long occupied the first few places of the ranking, it would be really embarrassing if a low-tier team eliminated all of us. Our superiors would be really pissed, and it wouldn’t be just a tiny bit humiliating for all of us. Every year, we all have this tacit understanding of eliminating lower-ranking teams first before fighting fairly with each other, but this year, one dark horse will mess up our plan, and he’s even capable of taking us all out. So, for the sake of protecting the face of us high-ranking military regions, I thought that instead of running, I might as well come to give you guys information. We must join hands and take that guy out first, or the rest of the game won’t be fun.”

Tie Shi didn’t talk, nor did the 4 teammates behind him. They did feel that Liu Wei’s words were a bit exaggerated, so they were sensible and were still a bit suspicious. They just waited for Xu Cheng’s arrival, wanting to confirm what the beast that Liu Wei was referring to was really like.

When Xu Cheng walked out from the dense woods, Liu Wei’s heart jumped.

Tie Shi’s four comrades immediately aimed their guns at Xu Cheng, but Tie Shi immediately signaled for them to hold their fire. Then, he looked to Liu Wei and asked, “This is the guy you were talking about?”

Liu Wei nodded. “Yes, be careful, or run.”

Tie Shi glanced at Xu Cheng and said, “I think I saw you back at the hotel before.”

Xu Cheng nodded. “Tie Shi, agile and strong, good at camouflaging and assassination, specializes in breaking the enemy backline, am I right?”

Tie Shi nodded and smiled. “What is your name?”

“Xu Cheng.”

Tie Shi: “The head of the Three Swordsmen?”
