Give Me Jungler and I'll Carry, Thank You - Chapter 5
The fact that Rafael joined VW was not a secret. Immediately, their official blog announced the big news that the number one jungler in the national server had joined VW’s team one. His record transfer fee of tens of millions even shocked all the people who were previously not invested. Because of this, the Weibo post was instantly ranked among the top three most searched by netizens.
[What? Who’s going to pinch me? My male god went to his old enemy’s team? Hahaha, I must have opened Weibo the wrong way today.]
[Before, who was it that said God R was going to retire? Can you please open your eyes and have a good look?]
[My god, I can actually see God R and God Chu become teammates in my lifetime?! Is it the end of the world?! Pinch me!]
[Tens… Tens of millions of transfer fees, VW is still a tycoon father as always.]
[The number one jungler and the number one mid-laner. This lineup of VW’s goes against god’s will. I heard that the Hammer company has also started preparing for the world competition this year. I feel that it’s promising for them to win the world championship.]
[The one upstairs, don’t be so optimistic. Club company and the European team are also very strong. I have watched their games, and their first place may not be much worse than VW.]
There was chaos in the comments section, and opinions were diverse. At this time, some people also keenly discovered a problem.
[When did God R terminate his contract with QP? There was no activity on QP’s official blog.]
There was no movement on QP’s official blog, but Chen Han, the ADC of the team QP, posted a photo at this time. It was a selfie of himself posing with a V. This selfie was subsequently reposted by QP’s mid-laner and support, which triggered an explosion of discussion amongst netizens.
[I knew there was a problem in QP during the post-match interview, but I didn’t expect that everyone was outcasting Rafael.]
[qp.adc: If I do not give VW this national championship, how will others know that even Rafael can’t lead me.]
[I’m sorry that I, Chen Han, am really stable. A stable kilI-streak ATM.]
Now that Rafael had terminated his contract with his old club, a lot of QP fans went for him, automatically switching their machine guns to point at VW. One after another, all kinds of trash talk emerged in the comments section. The entire Weibo esports channel was a bloodbath.
Yin Yu’s cell phone vibrated all morning. By the time he was done with training and picked up his phone, his WeChat had already accumulated hundreds of unread messages. Within Diadema’s professional league community, it exploded even more. Many anchors, commentators, and players came to congratulate him on his transfer. He scanned his messages briefly, sent a reply of gratitude, and opened a chat box.
[Des: Ah Yu, Chen Han, and the others posted on Weibo.]
[Des: Now that you’ve left, I want to leave too. I really didn’t know they would treat you like this.]
Des was the top-laner of QP. The two of them met in the game and joined the Diadema profession together, then they entered the national championship passionately. They were old friends and also a rare, golden top-jungler pair in the professional league.
Before Yin Yu and QP forcibly terminated their contract, he told Des in advance but did not mention anything about the outcasting from the team. When Yin Yu told him about Chen Han match-fixing the game, his face turned red and his nose flared in anger. Since then, he decided to live and die with Yin Yu in this profession. But Des’ family was not well off, he had a mother who was bedridden and needed money for many follow-up treatments. A high penalty fee was required to terminate his contract, and Yin Yu naturally would not allow that to happen.
[Yin Yu: Don’t think too much. Train well.]
It has been three years since the league started, and it turns out that there is only one person who treats me sincerely.
He was a person who did not express his feelings well. Selfish to the core, he rarely showed concern toward the people around him. It was not that he did not notice the underlying problem in QP before, but he turned a blind eye to it due to his own arrogance. He only had himself to blame for this outcome.
Yin Yu, you really are a failure.
He messed up his black hair, and his mood was unusually depressed. His eyes and eyebrows drooped gloomily, which made him look extremely dispirited.
“Yes, yes, yes! That’s the pose! Don’t move!!! Do not move!”
The long-lens camera that came out of nowhere made eye contact with him.
Yin Yu: …
A proper, tragic atmosphere. All messed up by you.
Compared to the Korean teams, domestic teams had a different kind of strict management. Due to an increase in commercialization in the esports field, the executives started to pay great attention to building the public image of professional players. After creating a Weibo account, players like Yin Yu, who was good-looking and excelled in the game, could gain tens of millions of fangirls. He was also offered a higher price by advertisers than those given to some B-list celebrities. Investors have also earned economic benefits from him. After finally signing such a lucrative contract, he definitely had to make the best use of it. No matter what he did recently, a photographer with a long lens could appear suddenly, flashing and snapping photographs with lightning speed.
“Tsk tsk, Brother Yin, you can make your debut right away.”
Taking advantage of the gap in training the next day, Younger Brother clicked his tongue and handed his handphone to him. On it was the daily publicity post released by the VW official blog.
In the photo, the boy wearing the VW team uniform was leaning against the wall, with his long legs stretched out unreservedly. From this angle, with his attractive profile, outlined by the light behind him, he looked surreal. Credits had to be given to the post retoucher as even Yin Yu himself had to click his tongue in astonishment.
“Amazing, wherever you go with this handsome face, you’ll be enshrined.”
Feeling helpless, he took out a cigarette from his pocket and lit it.
“Plus, in our team, Brother Chu is the most valuable. For someone to outdo him, the person is truly a superstar.”
Although Yin Yu was the most expensive jungler, his popularity was still slightly lower than that of Chu Ke. After all, the latter had been crowned with two domestic championship trophies and had the fearsome title of Great Demon King. In addition, Chu Ke had a huge hero pool, which allowed him to play in any position. Except for the jungler position, Yin Yu was terrible at other positions.
“Come review the match.”
A flat and emotionless voice suddenly sounded from behind, scaring Younger Brother that he almost jumped up. When he turned around, he saw the mid-laner, Demon King, standing outside the training room. He did not know how long he had been listening to them chatting.
For some reason, these past two days, Chu Ke wore a black mask on his face. Although only a pair of gray eyes were exposed, the oppression accumulated over the years still made Younger Brother terrified.
“Sure, sure, sure, sure, sure, Brother Chu!!!”
The ADC shrank his neck and trotted to sit by the table.
Now, all of Chu Ke’s attention fell on the other person. Yin Yu remained still and continued to puff out smoke from under his extremely oppressive gaze.
They were outside the training room, and there was no ban on smoking. Chu Ke had no choice but to continue staring at him expressionlessly. With the black mask on his face, it looked quite comical.
Yin Yu felt uncomfortable to be stared at by him, but still stubbornly took the last puff, and stared back fiercely.
Speaking of which, why did this guy suddenly start wearing a mask?
