Hua Ran searched the Internet for a long time for self-criticism templates. However, these templates were written by students to teachers and employees to leaders. He didn’t see a single article about how e-sports players should write self-criticisms.
Review the fact that his reaction speed and hand speed weren’t fast enough? His attitude wasn’t good enough? How could this be written? Hua Ran pondered on it hard but still didn’t know how to write it. Then he cheekily went to find Shu Chen next door.
Shu Chen finished taking a bath when he heard someone knocking on the door. He hurriedly wiped his hair with a towel. He walked to the door and looked through the peephole. Sure enough, it was Hua Ran.
This college student had a cheerful personality and was very friendly. Even if Shu Chen didn’t like to speak, Hua Ran could talk to himself for a long time. He wasn’t embarrassed at all.
Shu Chen took a deep breath, opened the door and stammered. “W-Why are you looking for me?”
Hua Ran asked, “Brother Chen, do you know how to write a self-criticism?”
Shu Chen was stunned for a moment. “Self-criticism?”
Hua Ran said with a sad face, “Yes, Coach Jiang asked me to write a self-criticism and it is 1,000 words. Forget 1,000 words, I can’t even write 100 words. I’ve never written anything like this since I was a child.”
The boy was dejected and depressed. Shu Chen glanced at him sympathetically and pointed to the dormitory on the left. “You can find Ye Zi.”
Hura Ran was puzzled. “Brother Ye?”
“Yes, let him teach you.”
Hua Ran nodded and turned around.
Shu Chen didn’t know how to write self-criticisms. During the ACE period, Shu Chen was the most well-behaved one. He listened carefully to whatever Jiang Shaoyu said and did his best to complete the task.
He usually trained hard and didn’t drop the ball in the area. Jiang Shaoyu had never scolded him. In Shu Chen’s eyes, Brother Yu was a particularly gentle person. He was a brother who encouraged him and took care of him.
OF course, Jiang Shaoyu was only gentle with Shu Chen. Lao Lin, Ye Zi, Xiao Zhou and Xiao Pei were all scolded back then. Xiao Zhou was scolded the least while Ye Zi was scolded the most and had to write the most self-criticisms.
It was right to let Hua Ran find Ye Zi.
At this time, in Room 301, Ye Qingming was sitting lazily on the sofa, watching a drama while eating melon seeds. A bloody romance drama was playing on the TV.
It was playing the climax when Hua Ran knocked on the door. In the rainstorm, the alpha plopped down and knelt in front of the omega. He slapped himself hard while shouting hoarsely, “Honey, I was wrong. Can you forgive me?”
Hua Ran was stunned. “Ye… Brother Ye, your taste is quite unique?”
E-sports players basically played games in their spare time. Ye Qingming was really good and actually chased a dog-blood idol drama.
Ye Qingming paused the playback and said with a smile, “Chen Chen told you to come to me, right?”
“How do you know?”
“Coach Jiang must’ve punished you to write a self-criticism. You couldn’t write it so you went to Shu Chen. Shu Chen couldn’t write it either so he recommended you come to me, right?”
Hua Ran gave a thumbs up. “Brother Ye is really like a god.”
Ye Qingming took out a piece of paper and handed it to Hua Ran. “Take it. I have already prepared it for you.” Then he pointed to the snacks on the table. “Just buy a few packs of beef jerky of this brand as a thank you gift tomorrow. I like the spicy taste.”
Hua Ran respectfully took the paper and looked at it, only to see that it said ‘National Team’s New Version Self-Criticism Strategy’.
First paragraph: Write down the date the error occurred and the detailed process. For example, on X year X month X day, Coach Jiang organized daily training for the national team’s players. Not only did you not train seriously but you were careless and did stupid things, which was discovered by the sharp-eyed Coach Jiang.
In the second paragraph, sincerely admit your mistakes. For example, XXXX.
In the third paragraph, look back and carefully analyze the reasons why you made this mistake.
In the fourth paragraph, once again sincerely admit your mistakes and promise that you will change your attitude and become a new person in the future, never doing it again.
There wasn’t only a guide but also detailed examples to use as a reference.
Hua Ran was very excited after reading it. “Thank you, Brother Ye. This guide is really useful. I’ll go back and write it!” He took two steps before turning back suspiciously. “By the way, did you print out this strategy in advance? You seem very experienced.”
Ye Qingming said proudly, “Of course, the self-criticisms I wrote when I was in ACE could fill a big box. When it comes to writing self-criticisms, no one has more experience than me.”
Hua Ran’s eyes widened. “A big box? Is this true or false?”
Ye Qingming smiled. “Of course, it is true. However, my box of self-criticisms has been left to my apprentice as a legacy. Once he comes to the national team next year, he will definitely be able to use it.”
Hua Ran: “……”
A teacher giving the inheritance of a box of self-criticisms, was this okay?
Ye Qingming paused and added, “By the way, the self-criticism would’ve been written by hand. You can write an electronic version first and then copy it. Otherwise, if you write it by hand, it will be scribbled and changed and will give people a bad impression.”
Hua Ran said, “…I got it.”
When she returned to the dormitory, Hua Ran was still filled with the confusion of ‘who am I, where am I, why is the national team so terrible?’
He went back to the bedroom and suddenly remembered something. He didn’t bring a pen and paper! Rather, he brought some paper for drawing and some colored paint. He couldn’t write a self-criticism with paint, right?
The helpless Hua Ran had to ask for help in the ‘National Team’s Victim Squad’: Guys, who has paper and a pen? Please lend me some.
Lao Lin: I have it.
Xiao Zhou: I have it.
Pei Feng: I have it.
Ye Qingming: Why didn’t you ask me for it just now? I thought you brought it.
Hua Ran saw the veterans of ACE coming out neatly and his mood was extremely complicated. It seemed they were all prepared! Did they bring paper and pen and were just waiting to use it when they were scolded and forced to write a self-criticism?
Hua Ran said, “I’ll go to Brother Ye to get it. Thank you, everyone.”
Qin Xueyao was a bit invisible and she was too embarrassed to ask in the group. She asked Xia li in private: Do you still have to prepare paper and pen? I didn’t bring it. Why do I need a pen and paper? To take minutes of meetings?
She used a computer and her phone for training, chatting and posting. She hadn’t written with a pen and paper for a long time.
Xia Li replied: It is for writing a self-criticism!
Qin Xueyao: …A self-criticism?
Xia Li said: Wasn’t Hua Hua called to the office alone by Coach Jiang today? It might be that he made some mistake and was scolded by Coach Jiang. Then he asked Hua Ran to write a self-criticism. Self-criticisms must be handwritten and written with pen and paper.
Qin Xueyao’s expression froze. Why did she still need to write a self-criticism? Was Coach Jiang so strict?
However, she trained very seriously and didn’t make any mistakes. Coach Jiang shouldn’t scold her, right? Thinking like this, Qin Xueyao slept with peace of mind.
At this time, Hua Ran was thinking hard to meet the word count.
He just managed to scrape together 800 words for the college entrance examination. This 1,000 word self-criticism was too difficult.
Should he start from kindergarten? He was spoiled since he was a child, hadn’t suffered any setbacks and his attitude toward things wasn’t serious enough. The process of entering the national team from the Rising Stars Cup was also very smooth, so he didn’t cherish this rare opportunity. His mind didn’t spin around on the first day of training, so he was slack and careless.
Hua Ran wrote, changed and deleted things. He stayed up until the early hours of the morning to finally finish writing the self-criticism.
At noon the next day, Hua Ran finished eating lunch and took the self-criticism report to the office to hand it to Coach Jiang.
Jiang Shaoyu looked at it carefully. “Did you find Ye Qingming for the strategy?”
He had seen this template belonging to Ye Zi too many times.
Hua Ran didn’t dare to lie or deny it. He had to bite the bullet and say, “Yes, I haven’t written a self-criticism before so I asked Brother Ye about the format and writing of it.” He paused before hurriedly adding, “However, the content is all written by myself and I didn’t copy his template!”
Jiang Shaoyu put down the self-criticism and stared at Hua Ran very sternly. “You are the only ‘non-professional’ player of the national team so you have to be stricter with yourself. Everyone else has undergone systematic professional training and has a very solid foundation. You are different. You are equivalent to coming in halfway and your foundation is a lot worse than theirs. I don’t mean to embarrass you on purpose. I just hope that you can keep up with the big troops as soon as possible.”
“In the future, training should be treated as a class. Concentrate, focus and be serious. Don’t be half-hearted, casual and smiling. Daily training is very important. The instantaneous reaction of professional players at critical moments is cultivated in such long-term, boring daily training, do you understand?”
Hua Ran immediately nodded like he was pounding garlic. “Understood! Rest assured, I will train seriously in the future!”
Jiang Shaoyu said, “Go and call Ye Qingming over.”
Hua Ran’s heart chilled and he hurriedly turned around and ran to the training room. “Brother Ye, Coach Jiang called you! He recognized the self-criticism I wrote was a guide you gave. What should I do? I didn’t implicate you, right?”
Ye Qingming said with a smile, “It’s okay, I didn’t help you write it.”
He turned around and knocked on Jiang Shaoyu’s door with a fawning look on his face. “Coach Jiang, are you looking for me?”
Jiang Shaoyu looked at him coldly. “Do you want to open a store at the door of the national team’s base and name it ‘Ye Zi’s Self-Criticism Store’? In the future, you will sell the template you made for money?”
Ye Qingming’s smile froze and he hurriedly explained, “These newcomers don’t know how to write a self-criticism. I will provide them with some help within a reasonable range…”
Jiang Shaoyu said, “Then you are a benevolent person? And I became a bad person?”
Ye Qingming’s forehead was covered in cold sweat. “…No no no, that isn’t what I meant!”
Jiang Shaoyu raised an eyebrow slightly. “What is the meaning of a self-criticism? It is the process of making everyone aware of their mistakes, correcting their attitudes and writing a self-criticism, as well as self-analysis and introspection.”
“Every time I ask someone to write a self-criticism, you have to step in and provide them with a detailed guide and teach them how to write it. Last time, the self-criticisms submitted by the Gourd Babies Squad were carved out of a template and some people even started to reflect from kindergarten. You taught them this method of making up the word count, right?”
“Do you think you are particularly capable?”
Ye Qingming’s face turned red and then pale. At this time, he realized that his approach was actually inappropriate. Brother Yu asked people to write the self-criticisms because those people made mistakes and needed to reflect on them and correct them.
He helped everyone provide a detailed writing template for the self-criticism. So in the process of writing it, no one would seriously analyze their mistakes but apply the template, trying to make up the number of words to ‘complete the task.’
Seriously writing a self-criticism while reflecting on themselves and copying from a template were completely different things.
No wonder why Brother Yu was angry. He was really being too nosy!
Ye Qingming lowered his head and quickly confessed. “I’m sorry, I was wrong! I won’t care about them in the future. If they are scolded to the point of crying by the coach, they deserve it! Why should I meddle? I had water in my brain.”
Jiang Shaoyu said lightly, “I think you are too idle. Do you think it is great to pass the test the fastest? You have been playing for so many years. Shouldn’t you be the first to clear the level?”
Ye Qingming was indeed talented. His hands were fast and his moves quick. Last night, he passed the level eight ‘Desert Ruins’ map and started playing level nine tomorrow.
He was the first to pass every time in the movement events and his talent was evident.
However, this guy was especially prone to complacency and secretly provided people with the self-criticism strategies. His skin would be itchy if he wasn’t scolded for a while.
Ye Qingming rubbed his nose and defended in a low voice. “I am playing level nine. I will definitely pass level ten as quickly as possible and set an example for everyone.”
Jiang Shaoyu told him, “Since you are so idle, starting from today, you will do an hour of map practice every day. Go to the double training room and play hide-and-seek with Coach Jiang. If you kill Coach Chang within ten minutes, you will pass the level. After passing the level, change the map and continue. If you can’t kill him then start all over again. Engrave all the maps in your mind!”
Ye Qingming: “……”
F*k, just now, he was still wondering who the second victim would be. It turned out to be himself?!
Why did he have to be nosy?
Ye Qingming cried out and said, “You don’t have to be so ruthless, right? Should I train for one hour alone?”
Jiang Shaoyu said, “One and a half hours.”
Ye Qingming hurriedly stood upright. “I got it. An hour”
Jiang Shaoyu looked at him coldly. “Will you still bargain? Very good, it is two hours.”
Ye Qingming: “………”
He was now like a dead leaf hanging from the trees. He was soulless, crumbling and miserable.
Ye Qingming came out of the office and sent a message to his apprentice: The inheritance I gave you, remember to keep it well. It is out of print and no one will be provided a guide in the future. Apprentice, you need to integrate and understand it. Understand the true meaning and innovate it. Summarize your own ideas.
At this time, Xiao Ye Zi was chasing dramas at home during the vacation. He saw the message sent by his master and couldn’t help saying: Master, are you insane?
Ye Qingming said: Yes, you can come to the national team at any time to collect your master’s body.
Xiao Ye Zi: “……”
Collect the body? Was the national team so scary?
Ye Qingming came to the double training room next door. Coach Chang was waiting for him and said with a smile, “Hide-and-seek training, right? Come, welcome Ye Zi to be the first to come to the national team’s little black room.”
Ye Qingming: “……”
He couldn’t wait to rush straight to death? Why didn’t he mind his own business?
