To bubbz- because of the issue with differentiating between game chats vs regular chats vs speaking, sleepy and I have been playing around with different formatting features such as adding brackets or using the light blue font colour. Let me know your thoughts as to which you think is more appropriate or if you have any suggestions.
[Red Alert warned in an uneasy tone: Brother, there are still two more days to complete the request, so until then be prepared to work overnight!]
[Lin Xiao simply glanced at the time on the computer screen: It doesn’t matter, isn’t it just a one night job?]
Red Alert wasn’t in the mood to explain whether it was one night or two nights, fearing Lin Xiao may regret it. He quickly pulled him into the 3v3 team and sent a voice chat invitation.
Lin Xiao accepted the invite and entered the room. Then he slowly rummaged through some junk, looking for a head set. After putting it on, he sat down and heard an impatient voice, “Hello hello hello, Cutie, are you there? Are you there, Cutie?”
“… Yes.” Lin Xiao went speechless and corrected, “My name is Adorable Ghost.”
“Okay okay, what category do you play, curse or auxiliary ghosts? Let me have a look at your equipment! Hey, these days must have been a good harvest! Wow, your equipment stats have already reached 4800! I say you should… aiyo, damn!”
Red Alert suddenly screamed, startling the other player,Empty Spring, in the group who asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Baby Ghost, why do you have these equipment, you can ask me if you need help! But why would you train all your equipment pieces in cooldown reduction? Such a waste of skills and attributes ah!” Red Alert was shocked but had to accept reality. “Forget it, you can play curse ghost since its cd (cool down) skill is shorter. When the time comes to use it, just remember to face the opponent.”
It was no longer called cutie, but all of a sudden it became baby ghost. But why did that sound so uh… awkward? However, Baby Ghost and Adorable Ghost were still much better than cutie. Besides, Lin Xiao was too lazy to continue correcting him and said, “I originally played curse ghost, but…”
Seeing that there was no objection, Red Alert sighed with relief and asked, “But what?”
Lin Xiao said, “But, I want to play output.”
“Output, your sister!” There was a loud bang in the background like a hard knock on a table. Red Alert only responded through what sounded like gritted teeth, “You play curse ghost, your equipment is strengthened with only cooling reduction attributes and you say you want to play output?”
Lin Xiao said, “Yes, that’s right.”
That’s right! That’s right your mother! Red Alert didn’t immediately respond or he’d definitely greet the other party’s ancestors 1Greeting his ancestors- This is a way of disrespecting one’s family line, mainly older ones.in the voice chat.
Before he could explode, Empty Spring tried smoothing things over with both sides. “Okay, we just needed somebody to fill the position. When the time comes, Adorable Ghost can play whatever position he wants, Adorable Ghost will play as much as he wants, and we’ll just go all out.”
After all, he was the one who said he’d endure no matter how unreliable the other person was. Who made him so arrogant talking about carrying the other party lying down? Recalling what happened in the dungeon the other day between the baby ghost and the boss, he finally decided not to say anything.
No matter how rubbish his equipment was, or how unreliable he was, at least during battle when they were being chased, he believed the little red riding hood would be able to live on!
And it so happened that Lin Xiao did not let them down.
As soon as he entered the map, he’d disappear like a jungle cat. Even if the map was turned inside out, Red Alert still could not find him.
There was a bloody battle taking place on the outside but occasionally you could see the teams’ adorable little red riding hood playing hide and seek with the opponents in the bushes. Although his teammate, Red Alert, couldn’t help hoping somebody on the opposite side could catch him and strangle it to death. His hatred for this teammate was greater than the enemy.
However, Lin Xiao was too familiar with the map. Though his hiding place seemed very simple, he was never found once.
Like this, just lying down, Lin Xiao won his way from sixth-tier to the fourth-tier. Lin Xiao watched the battle video while eating melon seeds.2Eating melon seeds – watching a show/being a spectator.
Not in the least bit uncomfortable, he’d occasionally send a cheer or two on the screen, smiling all the way. And although his teammates would always pretend to be dead and not respond, they were also satisfied with winning this way.
No wonder there were people who liked to lie down and win. This was too fucking awesome!
