Jiang Shaoyu held this Rising Stars Cup with the main purpose of selecting good seedlings of the youth training team from the people. This 32 year old uncle was an unexpected gain.
Apart from Pei Feng and the uncle who performed well, no one else in the first four matches was very good.
In the fifth and sixth matches, the performance of the players was disappointing.
Jiang Shaoyu set his eyes on the last two matches.
In the seventh match, the match was between Don’t Even Kneel VS Little Demon.
The former was a passerby master while the latter was a youth trainee. The youth trainee’s full name was Siyang and it was said that he was the strongest youth trainee this year. He happened to play a sniper.
Jiang Shaoyu looked through the information and said with interest, “This guy Siyang is also from the Xing City Youth Training Camp?”
If he remembered correctly, Mo Hantian and Shi Xiaobin were also from the Xing City Youth Training Camp.
Xing City had the largest youth training camp in the country. Teenagers in southern China who dreamed of becoming e-sports players would go there to participate in the training camp.
It was just that the Xing City Youth Training Camp taught basic operations such as positioning, gun fighting, firepower suppression, etc. They developed specific tactical awareness and teamwork and further improved after going to the club.
In other words, the teenager with the ID of Little Demon was still a piece of jade to be carved.
Qin Bo explained, “I read the report cards of the youth trainees all over the country this year and there were two with the highest scores. One is Gui Suiyang, whose ID is Little Demon and who is from the Xing City Youth Training Camp. The other is called Xu Fei, whose ID is Flying Bird and he is from the Imperial Capital Youth Training Camp. The two strongest youth trainees in the south and the north are said to have received many club invitations, but they haven’t signed with anyone. Instead, they directly fought in the Rising Stars Cup. They probably want to join the national team.”
Jiang Shaoyu nodded. He liked this type of children with ideas.
At the beginning, the young Pei Feng also went directly to the ACE base to worship him as a teacher. The goal was very clear.
It wasn’t always a bad thing to have a clear goal for their future.
Jiang Shaoyu looked up at the big screen.
Gui Siyang was worthy of being the strongest youth trainee this year. Under the long-term practice of the youth training camp, his foundation was quite solid and it was very easy for him to win against passersby. He killed his opponent with a headshot.
After a successful 4:0 promotion, the teenager came to the middle of the stage and bowed to the audience.
He also looked politely at where the national team’s coaching staff was and gave an extra bow.
Yu Mingxiang asked in a low voice, “Ah Yu, what do you think of this youth trainee?”
Jiang Shaoyu replied, “It’s okay.”
Yu Mingxiang added, “He also plays sniper. How is he compared to Xiao Pei?”
Jiang Shaoyu thought about it for a moment. “There is no comparison.”
His colleagues: “……”
It seemed that among the top 16 players, Coach Jiang was most satisfied with Fred. The others weren’t comparable to Fred.
This year’s champion was likely to be Pei Feng. Xiao Pei’s strength was indeed too strong.
Yu Mingxiang said with a smile, “It is the last match.”
Jiang Shaoyu hummed and looked up at the big stage.
In the last match of the round of 16 to 8, the system didn’t need to do any matching. The last two people left played against each other.
One of them was the youth trainee with the ID of ‘Flying Bird’ who was just mentioned by Qin Bo. His full name was Xu Fei and he was from the Imperial Capital Youth Training Camp.
The other one was Hua Hua Da Shao who Jiang Shaoyu had been paying attention to for a long time. He was 18 years old, a freshman student and the union president of the Iron Blood Legion in the online game. This legion was huge and only recruited college students ranging from a 1500 points rookie to a 2500 points master.
Being able to manage a union of thousands of people and to reach the top 16 of the Rising Stars Cup meant this college student had some skills.
He wore ripped jeans and a colorful sweater. his hair was dyed purple and he looked… very fancy.
Yu Mingxiang smiled. “His skin is quite white and his purple hair looks good. It would be a disaster if he had dark skin and purple hair.”
Qin Bo added, “His name is Hua Ran and the purple hair is indeed very recognizable.”
Jiang Shaoyu didn’t comment.
It didn’t matter how e-sports players dressed up. Their performance on the field was the focus.
In the commentator’s seats, Xiao Hu smiled. “Next is the last showdown for the round of 16 to 8! Let’s invite Flying Bird and Hua Hua Da Shao to the big stage!”
Ah Yan said, “Flying Bird plays an assaulter and Hua Hua is a charger. The duel between two melee professions should be very exciting.”
The two contestants walked into the soundproof room and checked their equipment.
The match soon started.
In the first game, Hua Hua Da Shao drew the first move. The home map he submitted was Stone Array.
The map of Stone Array was a small maze with a large number of stone obstacles. This was really suitable for melee play.
Shi Xiaobin had chosen this map when Jiang Shaoyu abused the Gourd Babies Squad. Jiang Shaoyu’s strategy had been to use the laser cannon to blow up the rocks and fired at him to kill him.
How would Hua Hua Da Shao fight?
Jiang Shaoyu stared at the live stream screen with interest.
The map was determined and the two sides started to select weapons.
Flying Bird quickly picked a weapon. The main weapon was the AK-47 assault rifle, the secondary weapon was the Sand Eagle-Ice Flame and then he chose smoke bombs for movement. This was a very conventional assaulter equipment belt.
The equipment that Hua Hua carried didn’t follow the conventional routine.
The main weapon: UMP-Chameleon.
The secondary weapon: Grenade-Rainbow.
The third weapon slot: Smoke Bomb-Cherry Blossom.
The UMP submachine gun was very powerful and had a high damage value. The disadvantage was that the magazine could only hold 25 rounds and two magazines were 50 rounds. There were a lot less bullets than the average submachine gun. However, due to the great power of the gun, the health would fall very quickly when being swept by the bullets.
The player’s hit rate must be very high to use this type of firearm. It couldn’t be shot like other submachine guns to use the suppression effect of firepower. They would run out of bullets after two sweeps. The player had to grasp the timing and hit accurately to be able to quickly kill the enemy.
The skin he chose was the UMP-Chameleon. This had a chameleon pattern on the gun and it could change its color according to the environment. It was very cool.
As for the other two weapon slots, he chose two types of throwing weapons. It was Hua Hua Da Shao’s special playing style.
Based on Qin Bo’s backend statistics, this Hua Hua Da Shao was the one wh9o used the most throwing weapons among the players. It was just that he had to use throwing weapons with good-looking skin. There was the rainbow grenades and smoke bombs with a special cherry blossoms flying effect. This really used the ‘flashy’ to the extreme.
The game soon started and the map loaded.
Xu Fei was very disdainful when he saw the many throwing weapons chosen by Hua Hua Da Shao. A ranged bombing weapon like a grenade would have a delay of two seconds to explode after rolling to his feet. Most fast reacting players could dodge. This Hua Hua Da Shao not only brought two throwing weapons but also the UMP with the fewest bullets. Was this enough firepower? Don’t act funny if he ran out of bullets halfway.
Xu Fei felt that this game should be stable. He quickly sneaked into the stone forest and found a stone to hide behind. He observed the surroundings while listening carefully to the movements around him. The intersection he chose was very tricky. No matter which side the opponent came from, he could hear the footsteps and react quickly.
Sure enough, it didn’t take long before he heard light footsteps in front of him to the right. Xu Fei immediately switched to a gun and the black muzzle of the AK-47 aimed at the gap between the stones. Hua Hua Da Shao would have to eat a wave of bullets as long as he passed by there. Even if he didn’t die, he would lose half his health.
The moment the footsteps got closer and closer, a loud ‘bang’ suddenly came from in front of him!
He saw countless light pink cherry blossoms flying around like a blizzard. The densely packed cherry blossom petals formed a thick pink fog that blocked his vision in front of him. The entire stone forest was covered by cherry blossoms. The tense and exciting shooter game inexplicably changed into a romantic date scene from a TV series?
Xu Fei was stunned for a moment and immediately shifted his position.
The audience with a god’s perspective could see that Hua Hua Da Shao had taken advantage of the cover of the cherry blossom fog to pass by the stone circle quickly. In the blink of an eye, he circled around Xu Fei’s back and the UMP-Chameleon in his hand decisively shot out a row of bullets.
Bang bang bang!
The harsh sound of gunfire came from behind. Xu Fei instinctively dodged but a few bullets still hit his back.
[’Hua Hua Da Shao’ has hit ‘Flying Bird’ using the UMP-Chameleon!]
Xu Fei’s health was cut down by half due to these bullets. This showed how terrible the power of the UMP submachine gun was.
He realized that it wasn’t right and immediately moved in a Z position to hide behind the stone. He listened carefully for the sound of footsteps.
He had just heard the sound of footsteps and turned his gun to pursue it when a ‘boom’ was heard not far away. The familiar pink cherry blossoms descended again, completely covering Xu Fei’s vision.
At the same time, a round grenade rolled to his feet. Before Xu Fei could react, he heard a loud ‘bang’ in his ears again. A dazzling effect like a rainbow burst out. This was followed by Xu Fei and the surrounding stones being exploded by the grenade!
Xu Fei who was blinded by the flashes: “……”
F*k! It was cherry blossoms and rainbows again. Was this person playing a shooter game or playing the 0.5 yuan special effects?
Hua Hua Da Shao didn’t give up. He took advantage of Xu Fei being blown up by the grenade to immediately rush over and release a fierce strafing in the direction of Xu Fei.
Bang bang bang!
The UMP’s special gunshots rang out in the stone formation. The next moment, Xu Fei collapsed in a pool of blood could be seen.
[’Hua Hua Da Shao’ has used the UMP-Chameleon to kill ‘Flying Bird’!]
In the first game, Hua Hua Da Shao won!
The two commentators looked at each other. “Ahem, congratulations to Hua Hua Da Shao for winning the first game!”
“This style of play is weird. It is really… a bombing?”
The netizens watching the game in the official live stream room complained in the barrage area.
[Smoke bombs with the cherry blossom effect. It is very good-looking. How much does this skin cost?]
[I’m also going to be a fancy trash. I’m going to buy skins.]
[Hahaha, the rainbow grenades. I’m really drunk!]
[Is this player the classic shamate style?]
[This style of play that blinds the eye! The special effects are only worth 0.5 yuan, no more.]
Netizens were paying attention to the special effects of the throwing weapons while Jiang Shaoyu was paying attention to his positioning skills.
Jiang Shaoyu saw that Hua Hua Da Shao won the first game by surprise and said in a low voice, “It looks like a chaotic bombardment with no rules but there are a lot of details. For example, he used the smoke bombs as cover to attract the attention of the opponent. Then use the grenade to blow away the opponent. He used the time when the opponent was blown away and stiff to shoot and take away the head. His set of continuous bombing operations were very smooth. He even calculated the time it took for the grenades to explode.”
This player’s style was really special.
Forget his fancy throwing skin effects. Just looking at his style of play, he was completely different from the average charger.
Qin Bo said with a smile, “He is indeed quite distinctive. Ordinary chargers will use the gunfire to suppress and force the enemy to retreat. Then they will look for an opportunity to take the head. Meanwhile, he first exploded wildly, blew the opponent away and used the submachine gun. For him, the submachine gun is like a secondary weapon.”
This flamboyant throwing weapon style was particularly good.
Most players only used throwing weapons as a support means of moving. They throw smoke bombs to cover the movement of a teammate or threw a grenade for ranged bombing to force the opponent to move and collect the residual health.
However, Hua Hua Da Shao used throwing weapons as his main weapons.
In his hands, the smoke bombs must be released when running. Almost every time he moved, he had to release a wave of dense fog with cherry blossom effects. The grenade was the core output used to blow up the opponent and the angle and timing of the grenades he threw were very accurate.
This type of bombing style of play might be disorderly but it was very easy to collapse the rhythm of the opponent.
Jiang Shaoyu sat up straight with interest and continued to watch the second game.
The second game was Xu Fei’s home field and the map he chose was the classic gun fighting map, Deep Jungle. In this map,. all melee players had to figure out how to fight. They had to find trees to evade and then seize the right time to shoot. It depended on who reacted quickly enough and whose marksmanship was accurate. It was simple and rough.
Meanwhile, Hua Hua Da Shao didn’t play like this.
At the beginning of the game, he released the smoke bombs and ran quickly. In the blink of an eye, his opponent was surrounded by the smoke with his cherry blossom effect and it was impossible to see his position. This was followed by grenades falling from the sky and exploding continuously.
Grenades exploded to the left and right at almost the same time. The widespread bombardment and special effects of colored smoke turned the entire forest into a front line for two armies to fight. It was obviously only a single duel between two people but it had the momentum of thousands of troops and horses.
Xu Fei’s expression was ugly and he quickly dodged.
The AK in his hand shot frantically in the direction of the footsteps but he only swept a corner of the opponent’s clothes. Then Hua Hua Da Shao suddenly came out of nowhere and there was violent shooting behind him!
Xu Fei was already low health after the bombing and he fell down in a pool of blood again.
In the second game, Hua Hua Da Shao won!
Xu Fei: “……”
What type of mess was this?
Jiang Shaoyu saw this and couldn’t help praising it. “This Hua Hua is quite interesting.”
His wild and fancy style of play made Xu Fei, who came from a regular youth training camp, completely deviate from his normal rhythm.
In fact, Xu Fei should be stronger than Hua Hua in terms of strength.
However, Hua Hua Da Shao didn’t play cards according to common sense and Xu Fei didn’t know how to respond to it. He became momentarily confused.
Jiang Shaoyu’s eyes were full of appreciation. “It is a typical trouble maker style of play. It can make the opponent’s rhythm crash.”
The national team needed some novel ways of playing, rather than following the rules and stipulating how a certain position must be played.
In the past, the Chinese national team was too rigid in their tactical thinking and didn’t know how to be flexible. This was why the players didn’t know how to respond when they encountered fresh foreign play in the World Series and it was easy for them to be caught off guard.
This time, Jiang Shaoyu wanted to form a team with rich tactics and flexible thinking.
In the future World Series, players from other countries wouldn’t know what to do when encountering the Chinese national team. Wouldn’t that be more interesting?
