Gold Medal Coach: Chapter 152

At noon the next day, the people of the Gourd Babies Squad 2.0 lined up to find Jiang Shaoyu with their written self-criticism.

Jiang Shaoyu sat in the coach’s office on the third floor. Mo Hantian knocked on the door first and saw God Wing sitting at the desk, calmly drinking tea. His face still had no expression and no joy or anger could be seen.

Mo Hantian stepped forward nervously. He lowered his head and his throat tightened when he spoke. His voice was a bit dry. “C-Coach Jiang, I will hand in the self-criticism.”

Jiang Shaoyu glanced at him casually and reached out to take the self-criticism.

Mo Hantian’s dog crawling handwriting was very ugly. Fortunately, it could still be recognized. Jiang Shaoyu read through it while drinking tea. Mo Hantian analyzed in detail the reasons for losing yesterday’s practice match in the self-criticism. The most important thing was that his command didn’t keep up with the rhythm. He looked back and forth and wasn’t decisive enough. He missed good opportunities several times.

The last paragraph was Xiao Mo’s reflection and commitment. He said that he would seriously study command tactics from today, correct his mentality and never make the same mistake again.

Jiang Shaoyu raised his eyes to look at the young man in front of him. Xiao Mo’s ears were red and he looked uneasy. This made him look pitiful and cute. He put down the self-criticism on the table and said casually, “This self-criticism is well written. It finally isn’t the strategy template that Ye Qingming sent you.”

Mo Hantian: “……”

Before writing the self-criticism, he had asked Brother Ye for a template but Yezi was locked up in the little black room by Coach Jiang for the crime of ‘providing a template.’ Everyone could only rely on themselves.

Mo Hantian’s self-criticism was messy but he wrote it himself.

Jiang Shaoyu said, “Xiao Mo, after you were divided into groups yesterday for the practice match, did you think that Group B definitely couldn’t win against Group A so you hesitated when commanding, making you worried that you would make a mistake?”

Coach Jiang hit the nail on the hair and expressed what Mo Hantian was thinking at that time.

Mo Hantian hung his head in shame. “Y-Yes. We are a group of newcomers in Group B and Group A is full of gods. There was no hope of winning…”

Jiang Shaoyu changed his tone. “Then do you think the Chinese national team has any hope of winning against South Korea and the United States?”

Mo Hantian was stunned and didn’t know how to answer.

Jiang Shaoyu continued, “The Korean team has no opponents in Asia and have been the champion of the Asian Championship for five consecutive years. Before the start of this Asian Championship, everyone thought it was impossible for the Chinese team to win against South Korea. But the result? You can see it. We were the ones who won the championship.”

Mo Hantian’s heart was shocked.

This sentence was like a blow to the head, making him instantly sober.

The Chinese team, which wasn’t favored at the beginning, defeated South Korea in the Asian Championship and created a miracle!

Why did a group of newcomers feel that ‘we can’t win’ when they saw that the opposite side consisted of old players, not daring to fight? Did they not even have the courage to face a strong enemy?

“If you face powerful enemies such as the United States and South Korea in the future, will you also feel that you can’t win and hesitate to fight? If you get stage fright before the match starts, how can you win?”

Jiang Shaoyu returned the self-criticism to Mo Hantian.

Mo Hantian took it with trembling hands. He was ashamed.

The suffocating silence lasted for a moment before Jiang Shaoyu suddenly asked, “Were you a fan of ACE before?”

Mo Hantian’s whole body froze. His cheeks were so red that they seemed to be dripping blood. He didn’t have the face to say that he was actually a fan of Coach Jiang… but once in an interview, he said that his favorite sniper was ACE-Wing. It wasn’t a secret. It was easy to find out if Coach Jiang had the intention to investigate.

Mo Hantian stammered, “Y-Yes, my favorite player is… it is you.”

Jiang Shaoyu smiled lightly. “ACE started from the secondary league back then. No one was optimistic about us at the beginning, thinking that we would be eliminated in the first round. But we got to the end. Do you know why?”

Mo Hantian said softly, “B-Because you have a strong sense of tactics and your command is also very calm.”

Jiang Shaoyu interrupted the other party. “There is another key.” He looked at the teenager in front of him and said clearly, “ACE players are never afraid of losing.”

Mo Hantian: “……”

“Meanwhile, you are afraid of losing. You are afraid of being scolded and criticized. The psychological burden ties up your hands and feet when you play and you can’t let go at all, am I right?”

Jiang Shaoyu stood up, reached out his hand and gently rubbed Xiao Mo’s head. “Don’t think too much. Since I chose you to enter the national team, I am naturally optimistic about you. I chose you, so be confident and play, understood?”

Coach Jiang’s fingers were slender and good-looking. Mo Hantian was stunned after being rubbed on the head.

His idol was touching his head?

His idol said he was chosen for the national team because his idol was optimistic about him?!

Mo Hantian’s face was flushed and his voice trembled with excitement. “I-I know! I will work hard!”

The corners of Jiang Shaoyu’s lips were raised slightly. “Yes, go ahead.”

Mo Hantian turned around and left the office. He was probably too excited so he moved with stiff hands and feet, like a zombie who had lost his mind… this guy had too much of a glass heart and Jiang Shaoyu was worried that scolding him too hard would make him collapse. Therefore, when scolding him with a few words to make him realize his mistake, Jiang Shaoyu had to also give some sweet dates and motivation.

Jiang Shaoyu was indeed optimistic about Xiao Mo. His reaction ability and operations were among the best in this group of newcomers.

Liu Shaozhou and Pei Feng were about the same age and they would most likely retire together in the future. Then the main snipers of the national team in the future would be filled by newcomers such as Mo Hantian and Gui Siyang. Jiang Shaoyu hoped that these people could hone their hearts and truly shoulder the burden of the national team.

After Mo Hantian left, Shi Xiaobin, Xia Li, Hua Ran and Qin Xueyao also came to submit their self-criticisms.

Shi Xiaobin had no reason to be scolded. He worked hard and was well-behaved and obedient. The problem with his game was that he transferred to a medic not long ago and his experience wasn’t enough. It was enough to let him continue to practice.

Xia Li was careless and a bit clueless. She wasn’t afraid of death and continued to get up and rush after dying. She was very stubborn. In a specific lineup, her style of play could work wonders. Jiang Shaoyu didn’t require her to be as calm and steady as other players. Her personality was like this and she couldn’t change it.

Hua Ran’s problems were very serious. In the Asian Championship, there was Pei Feng commanding and Hua Ran’s attribute of ‘pitting teammates’ wasn’t present. After changing to Mo Hantian’s command, he and Xia Li didn’t talk to each other and they disrupted the rhythm of the whole team.

Jiang Shaoyu said seriously, “Your biggest problem is that your playing style is too unrestrained, regardless of your teammates. It is good to disrupt your opponent’s rhythm but what if you often disrupt your teammates’ rhythm?”

Hua Ran scratched his head awkwardly. “I-I have mainly lined up alone before and I got used to it, cough.”

Jiang Shaoyu said, “When you play, you must observe the location of your teammates on the map. This is a team game, not a game for you alone. You can’t be willful.”

Hua Ran nodded. “I understand. I will pay more attention.”

Qin Xueyao was the last to come in. This beta girl had a gentle personality and was very calm when playing games.

Jiang Shaoyu was quite at ease about her. He saw that dark circles under her eyes from staying up late to practice and his voice became gentler. “Xueyao, you have made rapid progress during this time. It is enough to pass the eighth level in the shooting practice. I don’t require you to achieve headshots. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.”

Qin Xueyao smiled in embarrassment and said softly, “But I still feel that I have some gap with everyone. I want to try and keep up with them.”

Jiang Shaoyu said, “Your advantage lies in support. It is enough to expand your own advantages. Once you guys get along with each other, I will let you also try commanding in the later stages.”

Qin Xueyao’s eyes widened. “I… I will command?”

Jiang Shaoyu told her, “You are the captain of the Snow Leopard team and you have been serving as the commander. Your overall view of the situation is already very good. In some tough battles of attrition on large maps, the scout is important. At that time, you don’t need to worry about output. You will be specifically responsible for reporting and commanding. The other players will concentrate on output and the effect will be better.”

Qin Xueyao was flattered. She was a small, unknown player. Could she command this group of great gods?

Jiang Shaoyu saw through her concerns and said, “Don’t worry, I’ll be watching. Those who don’t listen to your command will write a 1,000 word self-criticism on the same day.”

It was worthy of Coach Jiang! In this way, there was absolutely no one who wouldn’t dare to listen to her command. Qin Xueyao also had the courage to speak her thoughts with confidence and in a bold manner.

Qin Xueyao nodded seriously. “Okay. I’ll go back and prepare to listen to Coach Jiang’s arrangement!”

***

At 2:30 in the afternoon, Jiang Shaoyu came to the training room.

After Mo Hantian was ‘touched on the head and encouraged’ by his idol, he had cheered up. His face looked radiant and he had regained confidence. Several other newcomers were beaten by Jiang Shaoyu in turn and sat in front of the computer to train.

Jiang Shaoyu said, “Continue to play practice games this afternoon and the grouping is still the same as yesterday.”

Everyone quickly sat down in their seats and logged into their accounts.

Jiang Shaoyu said, “Liu Shaozhou will rest today. Pei Feng, join Group A to take charge of commanding.”

Yesterday’s Group A was the four people of ACE plus Liu Shaozhou and they beat the newcomers of Group B to the point of crying. There was almost no way to fight back. Today, Pei Feng joined Group A…

Pei Feng could completely imitate the playing style of his master, God Wing. His command ability was excellent and there were ACE’s Yezi, Lao Lin, Zhou Zhou and Shu Chen. Wasn’t this ACE version 2.0?

With the tacit understanding of these five people, they could definitely reproduce the various tactics of ACE back then.

Several newcomers looked at each other and exchanged looks.

The difficulty had increased again.

Gourd Babies Squad 2.0 vs ACE 2.0. Wouldn’t it be even more impossible to win?

“I won’t watch this practice match. Play it yourself. I still have a meeting with the coaches. After the match, Liu Shaozhou will come to review and summarize it.” Jiang Shaoyu turned around and left the training room, leaving Liu Shaozhou in charge of the referee’s supervision.

Mo Hantian took a deep breath. Jiang Shaoyu’s words scolding him now were still echoing in his ears. If he had stage fright before he fought, how could he win? If he was shot in the head in the game, he wouldn’t really die. What was there to be afraid of?

If he lost then he lost. Just continue to write self-criticisms! Mo Hantian gritted his teeth and put on the headphones. He said seriously, “Everyone, be prepared. Listen to my command later and fight with all your strength!”

Everyone replied, “Got it!”

On the side of Group A, Pei Feng joked, “I didn’t expect that one day, I would be able to team up with you to play a match. I can remember how much you abused me back then.”

Lao Lin laughed. “If you want to turn over old accounts then go to your master. After all, he arranged it all at the beginning and told us to take turns to abuse Xiao Pei until you cry.”

Pei Feng: “……”

As expected of his master. Until he cried? How ruthless!

Zhou Zhou smiled. “It is rare that the five of us can re-form the team, ACE 2.0. Xiao Pei has become the successor of Brother Yu. This is also the lineup that Brother Yu wanted to see the most when he retired, right?”

When Jiang Shaoyu retired, he handed over the position of ACE to his apprentice Pei Feng. His original intention was that Pei Feng would take over his position as a sniper and tacitly cooperate with the other four to lead ACE to continue moving forward.

It was a pity that ACE was dissolved that year for various reasons.

They left regrets in the hearts of fans that could never be repaired.

Now they had actually reunited in the national team.

It was even possible to recreate the style of ACE in the World Series.

Pei Feng said seriously, “Brother Zhou is right. ACE 2.0 has a regular lineup of charger, assaulter, scout, medic and sniper. Master is likely to use it at the World Series so let’s hurry up and practice. We can’t let him down.”

Yezi smiled. “I just don’t want to write a self-criticism.”

Lao Lin said, “I don’t want to either.”

Zhou Zhou smiled and said, “Then let’s win a little bit and let these little guys try the ACE tactics.”

Pei Feng said, “Okay. For the first game, let’s fight a guerrilla battle!”

In the first game, the map was still Yuehu Park.

The five people in Group B were directly destroyed by Group A. Before they could react, they were destroyed in a wave.

Qin Xueyao asked, “Who am I? Where am I? Why can’t I find them?”

Mo Hantian said, “Was I unknowingly assassinated by a scout again?”

Shi Xiaobin added, “I am being stared at by the sniper and can’t save people at all?”

Xia Li and Hua Ran said, “…I was swept to death as soon as I emerged!”

Despair x5.

Mo Hantian was working hard in commanding but today’s match was even more difficult than yesterday. ACE’s old teammates had a tacit understanding that they had cultivated. Combine this with Pei Feng’s perfect integration into the team and had calm command and position. Group A fought Group B and once again played three perfect games.

The heads ratio was even an exaggerated 50:20!

This showed the importance of teamwork.

At this time, Yu Mingxiang said excitedly in the office, “Ah Yu, do you really want to use the ACE lineup in the World Series? Let them play as a team of five?”

Jiang Shaoyu said, “Yes. Xiao Pei will be in the sniper position and lead the team. This is what I most wanted to see when I retired. This lineup is the one to get guaranteed points in the World Series. When other systems are unstable and lose, I will release this ACE system to ensure that the Chinese team can qualify in the group stage.”

The guaranteed lineup was the team that the coach was more confident about winning the game.

They would grab points in the key game.

The corners of his lips raised slightly as he said softly, “It is because this lineup doesn’t need any practice at all.”

Did ACE still need to practice their cooperation?

They were originally teammates and family.

All the tactics, cooperation and positions in the past were deeply engraved in their mind. For them, that time in ACE was a precious memory and they never forgot it for a moment.

For Jiang Shaoyu, the guaranteed lineup of this national team was the old teammates of ACE 2.0.

They were the people he believed in most.

    Yes ACE 2.0!! Waiting for the Gourd babies 2.0 lineup to improve. Haha how would Xia li and Hua ran cooperate in the same team? Let’s see if they can improve..

    God Wing is really a visionary. Out of 11 players of the National team, 5 of them are from ACE and are all veterans except Pei Feng. To find these powerful players and train them up , forming a tactic cooperation that beat the strong teams in the domestic league is enough to prove his strength. It would be beautiful to see this lineup in the world series playout and terrify the other teams.
