Plot

Volume 1: Banished Battle God

Chen Guo struggles in a duel in Glory and loses 52 straight duels in the Arena. She withdraws her account card and leaves the computer for a customer (unknowingly Ye Xiu). Chen Guo hears a customer shout that she forgot to log out. She worries that her Chasing Haze account will be looted its money and its equipment. She runs back to her computer.

Chen Guo sees that Ye Xiu defeats her opponent in 40 seconds. She thinks that he is Ye Qiu, the Excellent Era 3-time champion, but she sees his ID card, which says Ye Xiu. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu wants to work for her Happy Internet Cafe. She challenges him to a duel in Glory, but he says he gave away his original account. Chen Guo is surprised when Ye Xiu, a 10-year veteran, uses a first-edition Glory account card. She watches as he successfully transfers an account to the new 10th Server, which launches at midnight. She hires Ye Xiu for the night shift and shows him his bed in a storage room. Chen Guo orders Ye Xiu to buy a midnight snack with her money as one of his first tasks in his new job.

After Ye Xiu returns with the midnight snack, Chen Guo treats her employees to the meal. She is angered by Ye Xiu's calm attitude toward the launch of the 10th Server. Chen Guo believes that Ye Xiu is an amateur gamer, who retired from professional scene due to his old age. She tells Ye Xiu her idols, Ye Qiu and Su Mucheng. Chen Guo falls asleep when she is supposed to monitor Ye Xiu's ability to stay awake on the night shift.

Chen Guo wakes up and sees Ye Xiu's beautiful hands. She is disappointed at Ye Xiu's slow APM. After seeing his Midnight Phantom Cat First Hidden Boss Kill, Chen Guo slaps Ye Xiu in the back to congratulate him. She is angry that Ye Xiu smoked in a no smoking zone.

Chen Guo learns of the shameless Sleeping Moon, who got his teammates killed to steal the boss, but fails since Ye Xiu allows him to die. She sees on the screen of Sleeping Moon ruining the reputation of Ye Xiu's Lord Grim. Chen Guo is surprised by the Ye Xiu's calm demeanor since he does not show his anger. She goes to sleep while Ye Xiu goes to the smoking area to play Glory.

After sleeping into the late morning, Chen Guo gets up to see how Happy Internet Cafe is doing. She finds Ye Xiu did not sleep. Chen Guo sees that Ye Xiu's Lord Grim will reach level 18 after clearing Spider Cave dungeon. She is shocked that Ye Xiu is partying with his slanderer, Sleeping Moon. Chen Guo learns Ye Xiu parties with Sleeping Moon, Seven Fields, Sunset Clouds, and Drifting Water because Ye Xiu carried the party with skill and high damage output. Chen Guo, who never got a first clear in five years of playing Glory, is surprised that Ye Xiu won three first clears in one night. When Ye Xiu goes to sleep, Chen Guo cannot see on his face that he is actually tired.

During Ye Qiu's retirement announcement, Chen Guo cries outside the Happy Internet Cafe and meets Ye Xiu, who smokes a cigarette without crying. She allows Ye Xiu to play Glory when customers do not ask for help. She explains the tasks for the night shift to Ye Xiu. Chen Guo loses three duels in the Glory arena and leaves.

Chen Guo has trouble sleeping and returns to talk to Ye Xiu about his retirement even though she does not know Ye Xiu is Ye Qiu. Chen Guo laments that Ye Xiu cannot carry Excellent Era to victory in today's highly competitive Pro Alliance. When Ye Xiu appears to not listen to her, Chen Guo grabs his neck with her hands and shouts at him. Chen Guo lets go when she realizes that Ye Xiu concentrated on the game. She wants to join Ye Xiu in the 10th Server, but Chen Guo would have to start a new account. She gets angry when Ye Xiu tells her to gain experience until level 5. Chen Guo continues to level up on the 10th Server. She looks up a Skeleton Warrior guide for Ye Xiu. Chen Guo stops her game to see how Ye Xiu would hit the Saber Buckle 24 times for the Saber.[3] Chen Guo goes to sleep after watching Ye Xiu succeed in taking the Saber drop from the Skeleton Warrior.

Chen Guo wakes up and rolls off the sofa. She is surprised that Ye Xiu placed her blanket on her when Chen Guo fell asleep on the sofa. Chen Guo greets Tang Rou, who returns from her vacation. Chen Guo wants Tang Rou to duel against Ye Xiu in Glory. Chen Guo notices that Tang Rou and Ye Xiu have pretty hands. When Ye Xiu wakes up for his shift, Chen Guo gets him to meet Tang Rou for a duel in Glory. Chen Guo is shocked when Ye Xiu decides to use his Unspecialized Lord Grim account against Chen Guo's Chasing Haze, which Tang Rou is borrowing for the duel.

Chen Guo agrees to cover Ye Xiu's 100 yuan bet with Tang Rou. Since Chen Guo never saw an Unspecialized in a duel, she eagerly watches the Fixed Field duel in the Arena between Ye Xiu's Lord Grim and Tang Rou's Chasing Haze. Chen Guo is surprised by Lord Grim's weapon and the variety of low level skills from the Blade Master, the Battle Mage, and the Sharpshooter classes. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu overwhelm Tang Rou, who defeated a lot of Chen Guo's opponents in the past. After Ye Xiu stops the duel, Chen Guo thinks that Ye Xiu's harsh words of advice for Tang Rou were a bit excessive. When Tang Rou challenges Ye Xiu to duel, Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu mercilessly destroy Tang Rou in ten duels.

Chen Guo manages to stop the cashless Tang Rou from wasting any more money on the duel against Ye Xiu. Chen Guo walks Tang Rou to the second floor to let her rest. Chen Guo returns to Ye Xiu's computer to see Lord Grim's Silver Weapon, Myriad Manifestation Umbrella. She deduces that Ye Xiu plays Unspecialized because of his unique Silver Weapon, but sadly, Chen Guo still does not realize that Ye Xiu is Ye Qiu.

When Tang Rou asks about the difference between her and Ye Xiu, Chen Guo cannot tell. Chen Guo advises Tang Rou not to play Unspecialized. Chen Guo is excited when Tang Rou decides to play as a Battle Mage, but Chen Guo is saddened with the reminder of Ye Qiu's retirement. Chen Guo shows her all of the old Battle Mage guides by Ye Qiu. Chen Guo disregards Ye Xiu's offer to teach Tang Rou how to play as Battle Mage. Chen Guo accepts Ye Xiu's offer to refresh the Battle Mage guides because nine years past, which made the guides heavily outdated. After dinner, Chen Guo checks up on Ye Xiu's progress of refreshing the Battle Mage guides. She gets a hand-sized whack-a-mole device to improve her effective hand speed from Ye Xiu. Chen Guo lasts around five seconds, and Ye Xiu says that she has 120 APM.[4]

Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu has the ability to freely switch hand speed, a trait of professional player. She does not like Ye Xiu's attitude when he explained how current records existed to be broken in the future. Chen Guo knows at 27 years old that she has little chance to improve her skills at Glory. Chen Guo hears the gasps in the Internet cafe and goes over to Ye Xiu's computer. She learns that he got the first kill on Blood Gunner Yagg. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu oppress four Battle Mages, who chased after him. She overhears Ye Xiu threaten to obliterate the pursuers if they continued to chase him. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu start his 11 o'clock night shift. She is frustrated that he only knows how to play games all day. Seeing Tang Rou grinding to level up in Glory, Chen Guo, a devoted fan for Glory, wonders if she is as committed to Glory as Ye Xiu or Tang Rou. Chen Guo goes to the second floor to rest.

Chen Guo wakes up in the early morning to find out that Tang Rou or Ye Xiu did not sleep. She talks with Tang Rou and takes off Tang Rou's headphones. Chen Guo learns that Tang Rou is leveling hard to catch up to Ye Xiu's Lord Grim. Chen Guo gives food to Tang Rou and Ye Xiu. Chen Guo threatens Tang Rou and Ye Xiu with a suspension of their employee benefit of free access to computers. She drops the threat in anger when Tang Rou and Ye Xiu decide to open customer accounts if they lost employee access. Chen Guo believes that Tang Rou is ruined by one night of Glory. Chen Guo is angry and walks away.

Chen Guo saves some food for Ye Xiu and Tang Rou for dinner. Chen Guo watches the 301 Degrees and Excellent Era match broadcast. She joins the crowd and cheers for Su Mucheng. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that the most skilled female player is Chu Yunxiu while the perception of Su Mucheng as the top female expert is all hype. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu about Gao Jie's strategy of following footprints to chase down Mucheng's Dancing Rain. Chen Guo sees Dancing Rain ambush Gao Jie's Stellar Sword, who loses one-third of his health. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Mucheng is in a great position to finish the duel.

Chen Guo believes that Ye Xiu grasps the essence of the game, which is deeper understanding of Glory compared amateurs. She learns from Ye Xiu that the Launcher's Tri-Shot technique requires the experience and proper timing of the Anti-Tank Missiles to expand the explosion radius. Chen Guo watches the next two duels, which 301 Degrees win. She watches the Group Challenge. In the first match, Sun Xiang's One Autumn Leaf duels Yang Cong's Scene Killer. Chen Guo is celebrating with the audience when Sun Xiang defeats all three of his opponents in the Group Challenge. She does not understand why Ye Xiu is devoid of emotion while everyone is cheering. Chen Guo is warned by Ye Xiu to not be too hopeful because she will be disappointed.

Chen Guo watches in horror as her idol, Su Mucheng, is isolated from Excellent Era by Yang Cong. Mucheng's Launcher, a long-range class, is in a complete disadvantage against Yang Cong's Assassin, a close combat class. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that this match has been dictated by Yang Cong and 301 Degrees. 301 Degrees lures Sun Xiang into his 1v3 victory in the Group Challenge as a trap to increase his hand speed to an unsustainable level in order to wear Sun Xiang out. This victory exploits Sun Xiang's arrogance, which shows in the Team Challenge. On his high, Sun Xiang does not communicate well with his team and is stuck in a duel against Xu Bin. Yang Cong exploits this by isolating Su Mucheng.

Chen Guo is dumbstruck by Ye Xiu's deep and thorough analysis of the situation. Chen Guo watches as Su Mucheng's Dancing Rain is the first to die in the Team Challenge. When Excellent Era's He Ming appears as the sixth player in the Team Challenge, Chen Guo's Internet cafe loses electricity. The customers leave while Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to call the electrician. Chen Guo goes upstairs to rest and delegates the task of overseeing and paying the electrician to Ye Xiu and Tang Rou.

In the morning, Chen Guo finds Ye Xiu playing Glory, and she worries that Ye Xiu will never have a proper job. Chen Guo is saddened that Tang Rou might follow the same road as Ye Xiu, where they both waste their lives on Glory. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu knows what type of situation that he finds himself in as a nighttime cafe manager. She respects Ye Xiu's choices and walks away. During the night, Chen Guo tells Tang Rou to rest instead of playing Glory. Chen Guo learns that Tang Rou knows what type of situation she is in. Chen Guo is shocked that Tang Rou appeared to be reading the same script since Ye Xiu said the exact same thing earlier.

Chen Guo learns that Tang Rou and Ye Xiu manage to break the Excellent Dynasty's Frost Forest record clear time, but Excellent Dynasty quickly takes back the record. In the morning, Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu and Tang Rou playing Glory. Chen Guo lets Ye Xiu borrow her Chasing Haze account to clear Boneyard. She watches Ye Xiu play on an old server. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu take notes as he controls Chasing Haze in Boneyard. She learns that Ye Xiu is researching to set a new dungeon record. She is surprised by Ye Xiu's serious dedication to Glory. Chen Guo feels sad that Ye Xiu, a pro-scene reject, is still extremely devoted to the game. She wonders how the retired Ye Qiu feels. Chen Guo still does not know that Ye Xiu is Ye Qiu. After reaching the dungeon entry limit, Chen Guo gets her Chasing Haze account back. When Chen Guo encourages Ye Xiu, Ye Xiu questions this, which angers Chen Guo. Chen Guo supervises the Internet cafe until night time and goes to sleep when Ye Xiu starts his shift. Chen Guo watches the Pro Alliance match, where Excellent Era hosts Blue Rain. She is furious that Liu Hao's massive mistakes cause the loss of the Team Challenge. As a result, Excellent Era loses to Blue Rain, 2-8.[5]

When Chen Guo wakes up for work in the morning, she sees a woman leaving the Internet cafe with Ye Xiu. Chen Guo asks Tang Rou, who only knows that the mystery woman regularly dungeons with Ye Xiu. Chen Guo is surprised that Ye Xiu has the ability to seduce a woman. Chen Guo does not know that the mystery woman is Su Mucheng.

Chen Guo lets Ye Xiu borrow her Chasing Haze account for a duel. Chen Guo rushes to start up a computer to watch Ye Xiu's duel. On another computer, Chen Guo and Tang Rou watch Ye Xiu's duel. According to Chen Guo, Poplar Beach is an arrogant and annoying elite of Blue Brook Guild in the Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo is furious when Ye Xiu drops Chasing Haze's level 70 Purple weapon, Rose Flower Cannon. Chen Guo sees Chasing Haze kick Poplar Beach into the air. She watches Chasing Haze obliterate Poplar Beach with a 77-hit combo as well as Ye Xiu completing a Perfect match, where Chasing Haze received zero damage from the opponent. Chen Guo is saddened that she forgot to record Ye Xiu's duel. With her confused customers excited about Chasing Haze's Arena performance, Chen Guo has to explain that someone else borrowed her account to destroy Poplar Beach.[6]

At dinner, Chen Guo scolds Ye Xiu for making her Chasing Haze account so famous that she could not play Glory anymore. Chen Guo shouts furiously at Ye Xiu, who flees the Internet cafe. With Tang Rou, Chen Guo waits for Ye Xiu to return. Chen Guo searches outside the Happy Internet Cafe for Ye Xiu and fails to find him. Chen Guo tells Tang Rou to send a text once Ye Xiu shows up for work. Chen Guo goes upstairs to sleep. Later, Chen Guo receives Tang Rou's text about Ye XIu's arrival. Chen Guo sends a text back to say that Ye Xiu would receive no pay for the day for showing up to work late.[7]

On the next day, Chen Guo and Tang Rou return with a bunch of shopping bags. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu about the sale, so she bought Ye Xiu a keyboard and a mouse. Chen Guo gives Ye Xiu a “Blue Classic” keyboard and a “Heavy Metal” mouse. She learns that Ye Xiu prefers to use the “Seventh Edition Light Wind” mouse. Chen Guo says the "Light Wind" is for women. She learns that Ye Xiu prefers to use a small, lightweight mouse.[8] Chen Guo smashes her keyboard in anger because of Ye Xiu’s taunts. She loses six consecutive Arena duels. Chen Guo is furious and marches up to Ye Xiu for real advice for Glory instead of sarcasm. Chen Guo is told by Ye Xiu to use the “Heavy Metal” mouse. Chen Guo calms down and goes back to dueling in the Arena. She realizes that the “Heavy Metal” mouse is easier to control compared to the “Seventh Edition Light Wind.” Chen Guo plays better with the heavier mouse. Chen Guo wants Ye Xiu to see her improvement and sees Ye Xiu playing on his own computer. Chen Guo learns that Tang Rou is repairing her weapon’s equipment.[9]

Chen Guo wins more matches than usual with her “Heavy Metal” mouse. She gives Ye Xiu the “Seventh Edition Light Wind” mouse. Chen Guo waves good night to Ye Xiu, Tang Rou, and other employees before going to her room to sleep. After a few days, Chen Guo sets up three computer stations for personal use. She learns that Ye Xiu will not use one of the computer stations because he smokes, which Chen Guo does not like. Chen Guo is furious and tells an employee to shut down the computer station reserved for Ye Xiu.[10] Chen Guo teaches Tang Rou that Tyrannical Ambition is one of the top-tier guilds in Glory.

Chen Guo directs employees in setting up the Christmas decorations. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that she and her father made the Christmas tree ten years ago. At noon, Chen Guo reminds Ye Xiu about the Glory Christmas events. She has a computer station ready for Ye Xiu to use. Chen Guo sees the leaderboards, which is separated into five level ranges to match the level of the players. At noon, the Christmas event starts. Chen Guo finds a Christmas thief, who have a special attribute to only aggro onto the first target. Chen Guo sees that Tang Rou and Ye Xiu are at Sin City, which is dangerous for Tang Rou and Ye Xiu’s low leveled characters. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu seize for the opportunity to attack the Christmas thief without aggroing the Sin City residents. Chen Guo is surprised by Ye Xiu’s accuracy and know-how to land the bullet.

Chen Guo looks over to Tang Rou’s screen and sees over ten Sin City residents chasing Tang Rou’s Soft Mist. Chen Guo grabs Ye Xiu and causes him to make a mistake. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s thief target escape. Chen Guo apologizes to Ye Xiu. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu about Tang Rou’s situation of being chased by Sin City residents. Chen Guo sees a Launcher, Cleansing Mist, who saves Tang Rou. Chen Guo learns that Cleansing Mist is Ye Xiu’s friend. Chen Guo explains to Tang Rou that Ye Xiu has the experience and intuition to avoid the Sin City residents. In the Heavenly Domain, Chen Guo is sad because she only killed three Christmas thieves for the past hour. Chen Guo is jealous of Tang Rou, who has killed nine Christmas thieves, and Ye Xiu, who has killed fourteen Christmas thieves.

Chen Guo watches Tang Rou’s screen. Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu to save Tang Rou. Chen Guo is relieved that Ye Xiu arrives to save Tang Rou. Chen Guo sees the name of Tang Rou’s opponent, Wind Following Sword. The name is similar to Aura Following Sword, who is an old veteran of Excellent Dynasty in the Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo remembers that Aura Following Sword commits treachery against other guilds’ players. Chen Guo is thrilled by Ye Xiu and Tang Rou’s performance in obliterating their opponents. She is shocked by Ye Xiu’s calm and bored attitude. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Lord Grim is surrounded. Chen Guo sees that Excellent Dynasty holds the first fifteen places of the individual Christmas Hunting leaderboards. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Excellent Dynasty is attempting to prevent him from moving up the individual leaderboards.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s situation. Chen Guo goes back to playing on her computer when Ye Xiu points to her screen, where a Christmas thief appeared. Chen Guo is shocked that Excellent Dynasty is suppressing Ye Xiu. As a member of Excellent Dynasty, Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to join because she does not like how her guild is fighting her friend, Ye Xiu. Chen Guo explains to Ye Xiu that a lot of experts are not at Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo is angered by Ye Xiu’s arrogant jokes about Excellent Dynasty and Chen Yehui. Chen Guo is shocked that Ye Xiu plans to gather all of the Christmas thieves at Sin City. Chen Guo knows that Ye Xiu wants to monopolize control of the thieves to prevent anymore respawns because the game has a limit to the number of thieves that can exist. Chen Guo does not interrupt Ye Xiu, who heavily concentrates on the game, and she personally lit a cigarette for him. Six hours later, Chen Guo sees over 300 Christmas thieves chasing after Lord Grim.[11] Chen Guo feels like she is watching a thriller. She counts 322 Christmas thieves chasing Lord Grim.[12]

Chen Guo sees that Ye Xiu pulls aggro of the 323 Christmas thief. Half an hour later, Chen Guo sees 341 thieves chasing Lord Grim. After Tang Rou’s reminder, Chen Guo goes back to her computer and kills the monsters surrounding Chasing Haze. Chen Guo is surprised that Ye Xiu is going to jump up the Sin City’s clock tower. Chen Guo refuses to believe Ye Xiu can match Su Mucheng, who used Aerial Fire to climb the clock tower in an old video.[13] Chen Guo has failed in the past to climb the tower, so she is shocked that Ye Xiu is progressing upward. Chen Guo looks at Tang Rou’s screen to see Lord Grim jump up the tower. Chen Guo takes off her headphones and hears a rhythm of Ye Xiu’s keyboard and mouse clicking. Chen Guo is shocked when Ye Xiu uses the Myriad Manifestation Umbrella’s Rotor Wing, a Mechanic skill, to ascend to the top. Chen Guo is surprised that Cleansing Mist is on top of the tower.

Chen Guo worries that Ye Xiu will not be able to contain the Christmas thieves climbing up the watch tower. Chen Guo sees Tang Rou, who does not pick up the 341 presents. Chen Guo scolds Tang Rou and pushes her aside. Chen Guo controls Soft Mist to pick up the presents.[14] Chen Guo rushes to exchange the collected presents with the Santa at Sin City. She manages to get two Purple equipment and a skill book. Chen Guo returns to the watch tower and gets up to let Tang Rou take control again. Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu to collect the Christmas thieves again. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu will not gather all of the thieves again, which is wasteful for the presents.

Into the early morning, Chen Guo is full of energy for the Christmas event. At six in the morning, Chen Guo goes to sleep. She gets up at noon and sees Ye Xiu and Tang Rou still playing Glory. Chen Guo turns to see Ye Xiu asleep. Chen Guo rushes over to shake Ye Xiu awake. Chen Guo controls Lord Grim and safely descends down the tower. She picks up Ye Xiu’s share of presents. After exchanging presents with Santa, Chen Guo sees Lord Grim at level 38. Chen Guo praises Tang Rou for getting a level 40 Orange weapon. Chen Guo sees that Lord Grim receives the final Christmas present. Chen Guo logs off of Ye Xiu’s account. Chen Guo goes back onto her Chasing Haze account. Chen Guo opens her final Christmas present and finds an ordinary gift of coins.

In her hotel room, Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu about the Team Challenge. Chen Guo learns that Mucheng’s amazing performance decided the match. Early the next morning, Chen Guo, Tang Rou, and Ye Xiu take a flight back home. Chen Guo does not support Excellent Era after they forced out Ye Xiu although Chen Guo still supports Mucheng. When Chen Guo returns to the Happy Internet Cafe, some of her frequent customers pay their respects.

Chen Guo goes back to work and takes care of the day-to-day tasks. Afterward, Chen Guo logs onto her Chasing Haze account and leaves the guild Excellent Dynasty. Chen Guo wants to create her own guild. In the Heavenly Domain, she asks her friends to join her in the exodus of Excellent Dynasty. With few responses, Chen Guo explains to a few of her trusted friends that Ye Qiu (Ye Xiu) was forced out of Excellent Era. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that she wants to destroy Excellent Dynasty in the Heavenly Domain.[22] Chen Guo wants to help Ye Xiu form a team to get into the Pro Alliance. Chen Guo takes a picture of Ye Xiu and Tang Rou to celebrate the official formation of Ye Xiu’s new team. Chen Guo appoints Ye Xiu as captain of the team. Chen Guo is angry when Ye Xiu tells her that she is not good enough to be a player. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that Forest Landscape joins Chen Guo in leaving Excellent Dynasty. Chen Guo calls her team, ‘Happy.’ Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to set up his guild on the 10th Server because Chen Guo has no power to set up a guild in the Heavenly Domain.[23]

Chen Guo learns that Cleansing Mist is Su Mucheng. Chen Guo envies Tang Rou, who gets to play with Mucheng on the 10th Server. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu is slowly accepting members to build a balanced guild with a mix of different classes. Chen Guo is excited by the rapid progress of Guild Happy, which reaches level 5.[24] Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu explain the strategy to defeat the Guardian with the 20-player team. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that most of the high-level accounts in the 20-player team are spies from the top guilds. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu scare out most of the spies from Guild Happy. Chen Guo wonders if Excellent Dynasty had spies in Guild Happy. Chen Guo goes to sleep.

After five days of Guild Happy’s existence, Chen Guo is wondering why Ye Xiu is not expanding the guild quickly and acting to defeat the Level 2 Guardian. She learns from Ye Xiu uses slow development to solidify Guild Happy’s foundation because they lack a professional club sponsor. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu assemble a 20-player team to take down the Level 2 Guardian.[25] Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu's team defeat the Level 2 Guardian. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu look for highly-skilled players to poach. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Su Mucheng persuades Horse Shooter, a Launcher from Misty Castle, to join Guild Happy.[26]

In the morning, Chen Guo rushes over to Ye Xiu and Tang Rou to see what happened. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu killed a few dozen enemy players. Later, Chen Guo plays on Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim account when Ye Xiu goes to sleep. Chen Guo switches with well-rested Ye Xiu, who continues playing as Lord Grim. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that he should focus on building Guild Happy instead of working the night shift. Chen Guo looks at Ye Xiu’s notepad and sees multiple marks beside Misty Castle’s characters, who died repeatedly to Ye Xiu’s ambushes. Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu if there are any Misty Castle players at Thousand Waves Lake.

With Ye Xiu and Thousand Creations, Chen Guo’s Soft Mist ambushes Plantago Seed and three other Herb Garden players, who are chasing Xu Boyuan. Chen Guo substitutes in for Tang Rou, who is working at the cash register. Chen Guo is struggling to beat her Herb Garden opponent. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim accept uncommon materials from Misty Castle, Herb Garden, and three other top guilds. She thinks that Ye Xiu is acting too evil in mocking his defeated opponents. Chen Guo is shocked to see Ye Xiu’s massive collection of uncommon materials.

Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s dungeon invitation to Xu Boyuan is rejected. Chen Guo is angry by Ye Xiu’s jokes that she is too old to dream about meeting her idol, Su Mucheng, to help level Mucheng’s Cleansing Mist account. Chen Guo agrees to level Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim account when Ye Xiu is resting. When Ye Xiu sleeps, Chen Guo levels Lord Grim until Ye Xiu returns from his rest. Chen Guo wonders how the Unspecialized Lord Grim would compete in the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo helps set up the stream of Tiny Herb versus Blue Rain, which angers a lot of immature Excellent Era fans. Chen Guo watches some immature customers, who break keyboards and mice, leave the Internet cafe.

Chen Guo watches the Tiny Herb versus Blue Rain match. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Gao Yingjie is a talented rookie, who can compete head-to-head against the experienced Glory Pro Alliance players. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Yu Feng has improved as a player since last year. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Blue Rain is the best environment for young players to grow in compared to Tiny Herb, which is too harsh on its rookies because of their Glory Pro Alliance Champion status. Chen Guo watches the final Group Challenge duel between Huang Shaotian and Wang Jiexi.[27] Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Jiexi has a slightly higher chance of winning because Jiexi thrives in even and orderly match-ups compared to Shaotian, who flourishes in chaotic fights.[28]

Chen Guo watches Wang Jiexi win the duel against Huang Shaotian. Chen Guo watches the Team Challenge. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Tiny Herb is too dependent on Wang Jiexi to carry average players like Deng Fusheng and Li Yihui. Chen Guo learns that a strong team’s outstanding performance might hide the team’s weaknesses. Chen Guo watches the stronger Blue Rain grind down the slightly inferior Tiny Herb. She lacks the high-level theoretical understanding of Glory to see Tiny Herb’s weaknesses.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s party enter the Thousand Waves Lake dungeon. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Thousand Waves Lake record clear of 30 minutes, 25 seconds, and 41 milliseconds. Chen Guo complains that her guild name, Happy, sounds lacking. With Ye Xiu’s advice, Chen Guo decides to put off the idea of changing the name of her guild because they can change their name in the Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu and his team enter the Gloom Forest.

When Chen Guo stops streaming Excellent Era matches for other important Pro Alliance matches, she loses some spectator customers, who are extremely loyal to Excellent Era. Nonetheless, Chen Guo’s regular business is strong. When Tang Rou goes home for the Spring Festival, Chen Guo and Ye Xiu see her off. Chen Guo and Ye Xiu leave the Internet cafe to buy decorations for the Spring Festival. Chen Guo realizes that she bought too many New Year goods. After returning to the Internet cafe, Chen Guo rests from bringing back the stuff that she bought. Chen Guo meets Ye Qiu, the younger twin brother of Ye Xiu. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu borrowed Ye Qiu’s credentials in the past. Chen Guo sits down and listens to Ye Xiu and Ye Qiu talk. Chen Guo learns that in the past Ye Xiu stole Ye Qiu’s luggage and ran away from home first.[29]

Chen Guo gives Ye Qiu a tour of the Internet cafe. On the second floor, Chen Guo allows Ye Qiu to sleep on the sofa. Chen Guo learns from Ye Qiu that Ye Xiu is shameless with women.

Chen Guo has one final drink with Ye Xiu. Chen Guo closes up the empty Internet cafe. She sees Ye Xiu, who is drunk, walking up the stairs. Chen Guo goes to her room and sleeps well. On the morning of New Year’s Eve, Chen Guo goes downstairs and sees Ye Qiu set up the dining table. Chen Guo hears knocking and opens the door. She is hit by the visitor’s party popper. Chen Guo is shocked that her idol, Su Mucheng, is in front of her.[30] Chen Guo is shocked to hear that Ye Qiu wants to leave home once Ye Xiu returns home. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu, who is giving a tour of his living area to Mucheng. Chen Guo gives Mucheng a stool to stand on. Chen Guo looks through the storage room’s small window and sees the window, where Mucheng lives. Chen Guo is thrilled to get Mucheng’s cellphone number. While Mucheng sleeps, Chen Guo gets Mucheng’s Cleansing Mist account to level. Chen Guo closes up the Internet cafe. She logs onto the Cleansing Mist account and sends a message to Tang Rou’s Soft Mist.

With Ye Xiu and Tang Rou, Chen Guo goes to dungeon to clear the daily dungeon opportunities. In the dungeon, Chen Guo is too nervous and performs poorly. She is saved repeatedly by Ye Xiu. Chen Guo uses Ye Xiu’s advice to improve her horrible play. Afterward, Chen Guo calls for food delivery. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that she reserved a room at a restaurant to celebrate for the New Year’s Eve dinner. After an hour into the New Year event, Chen Guo turns over the Cleansing Mist account to Su Mucheng.

Chen Guo and Mucheng drink most of the alcohol. After paying the bill, Chen Guo and Mucheng leave the restaurant leaning on each other because they are both drunk. Chen Guo dances through the street while firecrackers and fireworks explode in the air. With Ye Xiu and Mucheng, Chen Guo takes a taxi back to the Happy Internet Cafe. After returning to the Internet cafe, Chen Guo falls asleep. She is covered with blankets by Ye Xiu. When Chen Guo wakes up in the middle of the night, she logs onto her Chasing Haze account to complete quests. At sunrise, Chen Guo rests. On the fourth day of the Spring Festival, Chen Guo leaves the Internet cafe to visit her family.

Chen Guo works until the match between Excellent Era and Tyranny starts. Chen Guo watches Mucheng’s duel against her Tyranny opponent. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Mucheng has changed from playing a support style to an attacking style. Chen Guo likes the pro-Excellent Era atmosphere of the viewers in the Internet cafe. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Zhang Xinjie’s superior tactics exploits a lone wolf player like Sun Xiang. Chen Guo watches Tyranny defeat Excellent Era in the Team Challenge. She sends off the huge group of viewers. When all of her customers leave the Internet cafe, Chen Guo closes the shutters and the door. Chen Guo watches as Ye Xiu becomes the first player on the 10th Server to reach to Level 50.[32]

Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that he is buying equipment based on price to stat ratio, which will be enough to defeat the Heavenly Domain Challenge. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s high-speed mechanics overwhelm the quests’ high difficulty for normal players.[33] Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu destroy a level 70 Midnight Phantom Cat, who is suppressing the level 50 Lord Grim by 20 levels. Chen Guo is shocked by Ye Xiu’s Gunner skills in completing the fourth test. With Ye Xiu’s permission, Chen Guo attempts the fifth quest on rolling through obstacles. She fails repeatedly. Chen Guo switches with Ye Xiu and watches Ye Xiu easily complete the fifth quest. Chen Guo sees that Ye Xiu is studying the Team Challenge between the Tyranny and Excellent Era match.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu easily destroy Ascending in two duels. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s absolute victories in the Arena. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu fight for 3 hours to kill a boss.[35]

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim enter the Heavenly Domain. With Forest Landscape, Chen Guo’s Chasing Haze meets Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim. Chen Guo fails to get a friend request through to Lord Grim.

Chen Guo explains to Ye XIu about Heavenly Justice’s wealthy backer, Loulan Slash.[37]

Chen Guo tells Loulan Slash that she is the boss of Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim. Chen Guo accepts a friend request from Loulan Slash. Chen Guo watches Loulan Slash and four other players walk away.[38] Chen Guo thinks about how much capital she can raise to build a team to compete in the Glory Pro Alliance. Being distracted, her Chasing Haze is saved by Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim when a monster gets too close to her. Chen Guo sees three players, a Spellblade, a Sharpshooter, and an Elementalist. She is advised by Ye Xiu to run away because these three enemies could be Excellent Era’s pro players.

Chen Guo is shocked that the enemy Sharpshooter is Wang Ze, a substitute pro player of Excellent Era. Chen Guo wants to fight against the three enemies, but Ye Xiu disagrees. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu, who orders her to jump onto a large rock. Chen Guo dumps excess equipment that weighed her character down, which Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim picks up. Chen Guo lets go of her mouse, which Ye Xiu grabs with his left hand. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu’s orders to activate skills, which Ye Xiu uses. Chen Guo’s Chasing Haze uses a Satellite Beam and kills the enemy Sharpshooter, Wang Ze. Chen Guo assists Ye Xiu into forcing the enemy Elementalist and Spellblade to retreat. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that he tricked Liu Hao and He Ming into thinking that Chasing Haze is Su Mucheng.

Chen Guo leaves the previous leveling area. She searches for the three enemies’ names to see who they are. Chen Guo is advised by Ye Xiu to stop because the enemies will have many accounts to use. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu cannot quickly build a normal guild and fight off his enemies, who have well-run professional guilds financially supported by professional teams. Chen Guo realizes this reality because she has previous experience at Excellent Dynasty. Chen Guo is angry that Ye Xiu has to turn to the wealthy Loulan Slash because Chen Guo dislikes people, who pay to win, like Loulan Slash. Chen Guo is worried when Ye Xiu tells her that they will build their own team to enter the Glory Pro Alliance.[39]

Chen Guo is frustrated that Loulan Slash is delaying his decision on protecting Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that the top guilds cannot ruin their reputation by killing a level 50 Lord Grim in the Heavenly Domain. On Lord Grim’s first day in the Heavenly Domain, Chen Guo helps Ye Xiu level without any huge disruptions. The next day, Chen Guo arranges for three computers to be moved onto the second floor in Room 213, which her customer, Ascending, advised her to do. She shows the room to Ye Xiu, who is satisfied with the arrangement. In the Heavenly Domain, Chen Guo continues helping Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim level.[40] Chen Guo learns from Tang Rou’s text message that Ma Chenyi, the owner of the Grand Internet Cafe, is at the Happy Internet Cafe to set up a Sweeping the Field competition. Chen Guo ignores Chenyi’s taunts about her age. Chen Guo accepts Chenyi’s Sweeping the Field competition.[41]

Chen Guo suggests a bet for the loser to pay up with 24 Heavenly Domain accounts, which is fairly expensive. Chen Guo watches her cafe’s Witch player loses to Chenyi’s Blade Master player. Chen Guo is worried because most of her skilled customers/players are Excellent Era fans, who left after Chen Guo stopped streaming Excellent Era matches. Chen Guo hears a Launcher player challenge Chenyi’s Blade Master to a duel.

Chen Guo watches the Launcher suppress the enemy Blade Master to death. Chen Guo watches Chenyi’s Sharpshooter enter the Arena. Chen Guo watches her Witch player enter the Arena to duel the enemy Sharpshooter. Chen Guo is happy that her Witch player suppresses the enemy Sharpshooter to death. In the next duel, Chen Guo’s Assassin player fights against Chenyi’s Blade Master. Chen Guo watches her Assassin take the advantage and suppress the Blade Master to death. Chen Guo watches Chenyi’s two expert players lose a total of eight consecutive matches. Chen Guo goes upstairs and sees Ye Xiu, who is the actually won the 8 duels.

With Ye Xiu, Chen Guo meets with four of her friends, who are two employees and two frequent customers. Chen Guo tells the four that the other person is Ye Qiu. Chen Guo wants to buy the four Glory accounts from her four friends. She is ready to buy similar accounts that are as close as possible to the originals. In a video chat, Chen Guo talks with her idol, Su Mucheng for a bit before leaving to talk with the other four. With Ye Xiu revealing his forced exodus from Excellent Era, Chen Guo manages to buy all four of her friends’ accounts in exchange for new accounts. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu to not use the four accounts. The next day, Chen Guo sees the two experts, who previously appeared and lost against Ye Xiu.

Chen Guo is surprised that no one besides Liu Hao, He Ming, and Wang Ze of Excellent Era have attacked them. Chen Guo learns that her acquired four accounts are working as a threat to scare Excellent Dynasty and other top guilds from attacking Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim. With Forest Landscape, Chen Guo and her four friends, who have new accounts from Chen Guo, help Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim level. Over a few days, Chen Guo receives Ma Chenyi’s 24 Heavenly Domain accounts. Only seven are empty while the remaining 17 have a few pieces of equipment on them. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu to let Tang Rou naturally improve on her own to reach the Heavenly Domain.

Chen Guo follows Loulan Slash to the city Sword Shadow. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Battle Mage easily defeat Homeward Bound and Ocean Ahead in two duels. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Battle Mage defeat Night Tide and Loulan Slash. After Ye Xiu uses Lord Grim to obliterate his four opponents, Chen Guo praises Ye Xiu for his performance.

Chen Guo reads the news of Guild Heavenly Justice forming a team to join the Glory Pro Alliance. She is surprised by all of the media attention surrounding Heavenly Justice. Chen Guo is unsatisfied with Ye Xiu’s calm demeanor after beating Huang Shaotian’s Troubling Rain in a thrilling duel. Chen Guo asks for the password to enter Lou Guanning’s Arena room. Chen Guo gets access from Guanning’s Loulan Slash and sees Wang Jiexi’s Vaccaria defeat Wen Kebei’s Homeward Bound. Chen Guo learns from the others that Zou Yunhai’s Ocean Ahead already lost. Chen Guo watches Gu Xiye and Lou Guanning each lose to Jiexi’s Vaccaria in duels. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Jiexi is being diligent in scouting out the individual talent of Lou Guanning’s team. The next morning, Chen Guo laughs from reading an eSports newspaper and spits her food at Ye Xiu.[42]

Chen Guo is furious and slams the table when she hears Wang Sheng downplay the conflict between Ye Xiu and Excellent Era. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that the media will do anything to spread rumors and lies about anyone. Chen Guo sees the news online of Lou Guanning’s announcement of Team Heavenly Swords. Chen Guo is surprised by the headline that Ye Xiu did not join Heavenly Swords. Chen Guo is surprised that Ye Xiu planned everything with Lou Guanning.

Chen Guo feels conflicted about how Ye Xiu is indifferent to the media and Excellent Era’s negative portrayal of him. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu is getting more attention to Lord Grim and Lou Guanning’s guild to level up Lord Grim in peace. Chen Guo goes to sleep after being annoyed by Ye Xiu’s chaos that he created in the media. The next morning, Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu will continue leveling. Chen Guo reveals the situation to Tang Rou, who laughs at the media storm that Ye Xiu created. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim encounter a boss.

Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu has encountered a Wild Boss, Wilderness Escort. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that someone used a “Boss Summon” to call out a Wilderness Escort, who spawns in Eastern Wilderness. Chen Guo is shocked that Ye Xiu, who is a God-level player, is going to be a scrap picker, who steals dropped items from dead characters. Chen Guo is speechless when someone posts the coordinates to the wild boss on global chat.[43] Chen Guo logs onto her Chasing Haze account. She meets up with Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu to a better hiding space. Chen Guo meets Sparse Fragrance, a Blade Master, who leads another four Blade Masters. Chen Guo laughs when Ye Xiu reveals his identity as Ye Qiu to Sparse Fragrance, who does not believe Ye Xiu. With Ye Xiu and the others, Chen Guo waits near a dog hole.

Chen Guo waits in the dog hole. She hears voices of the opponents, who are the group’s targets of scrap picking. Chen Guo is shocked by Ye Xiu’s amazing mechanics of normal attacks to prevent the wild boss from pinning into the dog hole. Chen Guo hears from Sparse Fragrance that Ye Xiu has been fighting Ice of Dawn, one of the Blue Brook Guild’s Five Great Experts. Chen Guo notices the intense fighting over the Wilderness Escort has slowed. She learns from Ye Xiu that this wild boss is not valuable to the elite guilds.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim use Falling Flower Palm to knock Wilderness Escort out of the dog hole. Chen Guo is shocked by Ye Xiu’s audacity to tell Blue Brook Guild and Excellent Dynasty to obliterate Herb Garden. She watches Ye Xiu launch Mugwort into the Blue Brook Guild team, which kills Mugwort. Chen Guo is horrified to see Ye Xiu launch Ice of Dawn into the Excellent Era team. Chen Guo watches Ice of Dawn die to Excellent Dynasty players. Chen Guo sees Herb Garden players attack Blue Brook Guild players, who are fighting Excellent Dynasty players. Chen Guo watches Blue Brook Guild fighting Wilderness Escort, Herb Garden, and Excellent Dynasty at the same time. Chen Guo sees Deception and learns from Sparse Fragrance that Deception is a notorious expert at scrap picking. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu, who is chasing after Deception. Chen Guo asks Tang Rou to go online and search for information about Deception.

Chen Guo learns from Tang Rou that Deception is a solo player and a ruthless scrap picker. With Ye Xiu’s coordinates, Chen Guo rushes to the area and is ambushed by Deception. Chen Guo is surprised that Deception dodges Ye Xiu’s Sword Draw attack. Chen Guo is surprised to see Ye Xiu’s serious face for the first time. Chen Guo is shocked to see Ye Xiu shamelessly use her screen to outsmart Deception’s Hundred Streams attack.

Chen Guo asks for Tang Rou’s opinion on Ye Xiu’s shamelessness. Chen Guo is shocked to hear Tang Rou’s nonchalant disregard for Ye Xiu’s play. Chen Guo sees players from Blue Brook Guild, Herb Garden, and Excellent Dynasty chasing after Ye Xiu and Deception. Chen Guo tries to delay the enemies by using her ultimate skill, Satellite Cannon, and dies to onslaught of the enemies’ long-range skills. Chen Guo sees that she loses her hairband and her weapon, level 70 Purple Rose Flower Cannon.[44]

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s screen, where Lord Grim is behind the street corner and is watching Deception’s struggle against 15 Excellent Dynasty players. Chen Guo shouts “Golden Princess,” a negative nickname for Golden Fragrance, who falls headfirst into the ground from Deception’s Bird Fall skill. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu picked up an Orange necklace. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to kill Golden Fragrance for valuable dropped equipment. Chen Guo dislikes Golden Fragrance for destroying her reputation in Excellent Dynasty. Chen Guo and other Excellent Dynasty players dislike Golden Fragrance for her undeserved rise up the guild’s ranks to be a core member, which is why Golden Fragrance has the nickname "Golden Princess."[45] Chen Guo is satisfied with Ye Xiu’s work in picking up Golden Fragrance’s dropped Orange weapon, Armor-piercing Cannon.[46]

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim suffer from being hit by Sun Xiang’s Dragon Raises Its Head, Ye Xiu’s signature technique. Chen Guo calls Tang Rou over to Ye Xiu’s computer. Chen Guo observes Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim fight against Sun Xiang’s Battle Mage. Chen Guo watches Sun Xiang dodge Ye Xiu’s Collapsing Mountain and parry Ye Xiu’s Sword Draw. Chen Guo sees Mo Fan’s Deception cut off Sun Xiang’s retreat path with the Ninja’s Hundred Streams attack.

Chen Guo watches Guanning, Gu Xiye, Wen Kebei, and Mo Fan suppress Sun Xiang.[47]

Volume 6: Mainstream Tank

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu and his teammates kill Liu Hao’s Spellblade and Sun Xiang’s Battle Mage. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s slightly sad expression as he leaves to smoke outside. Chen Guo tells Tang Rou to help Ye Xiu log off of Glory. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu smoking inside. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that this is the end of the Excellent Era. She watches Ye Xiu walk out of the building. Chen Guo feels a lot of pain after investing a lot of emotion and energy into Excellent Era. She loved Excellent Era, but she wonders how Ye Xiu feels about being forced out of Excellent Era. Chen Guo wonders if the public would understand Ye Xiu being kicked out of a club that he helped build from nothing.

Chen Guo is angry that the 7 strongest guilds put Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim, Mo Fan’s Deception, and the 5 other Heavenly Justice accounts on a hit list. She sees that Lord Grim and Deception equal 500 RMB per death while Guanning and his 4 allies each have a 100 RMB per death bounty. Chen Guo knows that the professional clubs are afraid of Ye Xiu, who will cause chaos when he announces his return to the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo looks over at Ye Xiu’s computer and sees Ye Xiu chatting with Lou Guanning on QQ. Chen Guo is surprised that Guanning hands over the 5 Heavenly Justice accounts for free to Ye Xiu to farm the bounty. Chen Guo is shocked that Mo Qiang estimates that he can make 700,000 RMB from bounty farming.

Chen Guo is shocked at Ye Xiu’s willingness to do whatever it takes to return to the Glory Pro Alliance and working behind the scenes to farm bounties. Chen Guo goes back to playing Glory. She sees a notification that Lord Grim logs on. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to be careful. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to get a studio to level Lord Grim for him.

After the angry customers leave, Chen Guo directs her staff clean up the mess. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu upstairs and asks him about the possibility of Excellent Era’s relegation. She learns that Ye Xiu does not know if Excellent Era will be relegated.

In the morning, Chen Guo’s Chasing Haze joins Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim to help him level faster. Chen Guo continues her management and patrols of her Internet cafe. She runs into a familiar person and leads him to Ye Xiu. Chen Guo learns that this person is Excellent Era’s boss. Chen Guo is shocked that she is with Tao Xuan. Chen Guo initially goes outside and shuts the door to hear Ye Xiu and Tao Xuan from behind the door. Chen Guo is invited back into the room when Ye Xiu catches her listening through the door. Chen Guo is shocked that Tao Xuan is willing to sell the One Autumn Leaf account to Ye Xiu at a high price. Chen Guo is confused when Ye Xiu wants to buy Su Mucheng’s Dancing Rain instead of One Autumn Leaf. Chen Guo stands next to the window and sees Tao Xuan enter the Excellent Era headquarters. Chen Guo follows Ye Xiu to room 213 to start playing Glory. Chen Guo logs in and hears Ye Xiu shouting to run. Chen Guo sees a huge barrage of enemy attacks explode around her.

Chen Guo rushes to drink a potion to recover Chasing Haze’s missing health. She knows that she is going to die to the enemy attacks. Chen Guo sees her Chasing Haze die. She looks over to Ye Xiu, who is intensely typing to escape. Chen Guo is relieved that her inventory looked okay and only dropped a blue equipment ring. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu use his Myriad Manifestation Umbrella’s Rotor Blade skill to fly away. She sees Ye Xiu switch over to the gun form to shoot down a female Witch as well as switch to a sword and uses Falling Light Blade to escape an enemy Blade Master’s Sky Plunging Blade. Chen Guo observes Ye Xiu parry a Berserker with a Dual Sword Style. Chen Guo is worried about the stamina of Lord Grim.

Chen Guo revives her Chasing Haze and runs over to Lord Grim’s position. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu’s key hitting slowing down, and she sees that Lord Grim is in the Milo Ancient Ruins, the Level 55 area of the Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu has 20 enemies and a very troublesome commander to deal with. Chen Guo is surprised that Ye Xiu and Wei Chen lied to each other in their fight. Chen Guo supports Ye Xiu and insults the enemy Warlock. Chen Guo challenges Ye Xiu’s opponent to a 1v1. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu kill the enemy Assassin. She learns from Ye Xiu that the enemy Warlock is Wei Chen, the former captain of Blue Rain and former owner of Swoksaar. Chen Guo asks why Wei Chen is a bandit. She learns that Wei Chen is a crude character, who lasted 2 years in the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo learns that Yu Wenzhou and Huang Shaotian are Wei Chen’s successors. Chen Guo is furious when she hears Wei Chen insult her low skill level and describes her only usefulness as a whore in bed.[49]

Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Wei Chen’s forces are not Blue Brook Guild experts, which explains Ye Xiu’s ease of escape. Chen Guo checks with her friends in other guilds about Lord Grim’s bounty. She learns that Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim still has the 500 RMB bounty. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that all of the guilds have bounties and contribution rewards for Lord Grim’s head. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu’s comment to pay attention to the system announcements for his reinforcements. Chen Guo sees the system announcement of Qiao Yifan’s One Inch Ash ascending into the Heavenly Domain. Chen Guo checks to see that Yifan’s One Inch Ash is only level 55, which is half a level higher than Lord Grim.

Chen Guo watches Qiao Yifan’s One Inch Ash get hit by Wei Chen’s Bind Spell. Chen Guo rushes toward Ye Xiu’s position. She uses Chasing Haze’s Satellite Beam on the enemies that Ye Xiu threw together. With Yifan’s Sword Boundary buff, Chen Guo drops a Grenade and uses a Stinger on the enemy. She kills several opponents with her high damage output. With Qiao Yifan and Ye Xiu, Chen Guo kills 12 enemies. Chen Guo is fighting against the six remaining enemies and sees four of the healthiest run away. She sees Wei Chen post Lord Grim’s location in global chat. Chen Guo chases after Wei Chen’s Windward Formation. Chen Guo arrives to reinforce Ye Xiu and Yifan. She attacks Wei Chen’s Windward Formation. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu suppress Windward Formation to death. Chen Guo joins Ye Xiu and Yifan to level in the wilderness. Chen Guo is happy to see her team grow with Wei Chen agreeing in principle to join Ye Xiu.

Chen Guo asks Tang Rou if she wants to join Ye Xiu’s team to rejoin the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo is happy that Tang Rou agrees to join Ye Xiu and Wei Chen. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu’s advice to take team building slowly and for her to practice her mechanics to be substitute player for the team. Chen Guo helps Lord Grim level. She learned some information on the requirements to join the Glory Pro Alliance. At night time, Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that she cannot meet the stadium seating and technology requirements. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu will participate in the qualification tournament to join the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu explain to Tang Rou that the tournament is commonly called the revival tournament because a lot of relegated teams get a chance to rejoin the Pro Alliance. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that if they win qualification into the Pro Alliance the league will take care of the stadium and other costs that they cannot. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu speculate that in the future the Glory Pro Alliance will develop the qualification tournament into a secondary league.

After eating dinner, Chen Guo goes online to research about the qualification tournament. She sees the qualification tournament’s cheesy slogan, “The place where dreams begin.” She finds the sign-up page to see the deadline. Chen Guo is worried about the time that they have to level up their characters and get proper equipment. Chen Guo is advised by Ye Xiu that they will get it done in time for the qualification tournament.

From Ye Xiu, Chen Guo gets an alternate account to have the authority equal to the guild leader although she does not have the power to remove the guild leader. Chen Guo gets all of Lord Grim’s excess materials to sell for revenue to buy high-level rare materials for Guild Happy. Chen Guo goes to the marketplace to sell off Ye Xiu’s excess materials. Chen Guo buys equipment, potions, and food for many subclasses.

Chen Guo notifies Ye Xiu that some players are close to 6000 contribution points, which would give them access to the Desert Badge. From Ye Xiu, Chen Guo learns that these players are spies. Chen Guo gives Tang Rou rare materials to trade over to Guild Happy. After Tang Rou reaches 6000 contribution points, Chen Guo rushes to give her the Desert Badge to protect the rare item from the enemy spies. Chen Guo makes an announcement that high-leveled players like Tang Rou deserve to get access to rare items.

Fascinated, Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu polish and cut the Aquamarine in the Equipment Editor. After watching for half an hour, Chen Guo apologizes for looking at the Myriad Manifestation Umbrella blueprint, which is extremely rare and only for authorized people to look at. After Ye Xiu says she can look, Chen Guo observes Ye Xiu studying the extremely complex blueprint of the Myriad Manifestation Umbrella blueprint. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu disassembling and placing the Aquamarine material into the Myriad Manifestation Umbrella. She is fascinated by the Silver Weapon’s improved stats at level 50.

Chen Guo understands that Samsara Guild helped clear Blue Brook Guild’s name as repayment for helping them secure Swamp Hunter Leipu. She learns that Ye Xiu needs to use shameless methods like extorting Blue Brook Guild and Samsara Guild for rare materials in exchange for a Wild Boss. Chen Guo agrees with Ye Xiu’s comment that Wei Chen is more shameless than him. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu’s speculation that Samsara have what it takes to become the Season 8 champions.

Chen Guo sees someone post a question about who had the power to control the Wild Boss compared to the big guilds. She asks Ye Xiu if he posted the question, which he denied. Chen Guo hands over her Chasing Haze account to Ye Xiu, so he can save his Lord Grim account. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Chasing Haze fire Heat Seeking Missiles at the enemy, which hits a few players and creates a mushroom cloud. Next, Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu fire a Satellite Beam, which hits multiple enemies. Afterward, she sees Wei Chen’s comrades unleash a huge wave of AoE damage onto the wounded enemies.

Chen Guo logs on as Lord Grim inside Chasing Haze’s Satellite Beam to hide. She moves away from her computer to switch with Ye Xiu, who gets back on as Lord Grim. Chen Guo takes over the controls of her Chasing Haze. She watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim fight and escape the enemy encirclement. On the Glory forums, Chen Guo reads the war of words between Heavenly Justice and the big guilds including Blue Brook Guild, Tyrannical Ambition, Herb Garden, Excellent Dynasty, Misty Castle, Blossom Valley, Howling Heights, Samsara Guild, and others. She watches most player support Heavenly Justice against the big guilds.

Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that he will be a spy as a tank. She watches Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim reach level 55, so he can go to dungeons to level more efficiently. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu log off of the Lord Grim account because leveling Lord Grim is not a priority anymore. Out of 13,251 gold coins, Chen Guo gives 13,000 to Ye Xiu’s Knight Unrivaled Super Hottie, who needs equipment. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu spend 5,000 gold coins to buy Blue equipment to fully equip Unrivaled Super Hottie. She lets Ye Xiu keep the remaining 8,000 gold coins. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu reading through Guanning’s report on Tyrannical Ambition. She sees him apply to a guild called Exterminate the Heavens, which is run by Senior Exterminate the Heavens. She sees Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie get accepted into Exterminate the Heavens. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu’s Knight has 750 Vitality, 520 Strength, 414 Intelligence, and 405 Spirit, which is a weak tank.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu insult the disrespectful Crispy Bean. She is entertained by Ye Xiu starting a conflict immediately after joining Exterminate the Heaven’s dungeon party. Chen Guo watches Crispy Bean insult Ye Xiu, who is leeching experience and not putting in the effort to play seriously. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu to “prove his strength.” She catches a crumpled piece of paper and sees Ye Xiu’s Glory Pro Alliance Season 3 MVP award. Chen Guo throws the paper back at Ye Xiu, who pockets it. Chen Guo understands that Ye Xiu’s absolute strength is proven, so Ye Xiu is content to put in the minimum effort in this dungeon.

In the morning, Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu cleared the Tomb in the Sky dungeon. On a computer, Chen Guo drops off Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie at the Arena. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu sit at another computer next to Tang Rou. Chen Guo understands that Ye Xiu has 2 accounts online to prevent anyone from realizing that Unrivaled Super Hottie and Lord Grim are used by the same person. Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu if she can join him in a dungeon run. With Ye Xiu’s approval, Chen Guo logs onto her Chasing Haze account. She joins Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim and Qiao Yifan’s One Inch Ash. At a level 55 5-man dungeon, Chen Guo plays as the main DPS unit with Yifan supporting her while Ye Xiu does everything on the battlefield. With Ye Xiu and Yifan’s pro-level skill, Chen Guo’s level 70 Chasing Haze clears the dungeon with ease. With Ye Xiu and Yifan, Chen Guo runs through the dungeon to the daily limit. She sees Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie meet the top players of Tyrannical Ambition.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie get a new set of better equipment from Jiang You’s Wandering Peak.

She sees the Blossom Valley players charge past Ye Xiu’s Knight to fight against the Tyrannical Ambition players. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu activate Knight’s Spirit and charge towards Dazzling Spring.

Chen Guo is thrilled to watch Zhang Jiale fight against Ye Xiu because they are both God-tier players. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that he cannot fight against Jiale’s Dazzling Spring one-on-one. She hears that Ye Xiu's Unrivaled Super Hottie lacks the guild bonuses, which Jiale has with Blossom Valley. Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu declare that he will fight his way back into the Glory Pro Alliance to win 1 more championship.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu chase after Zhang Jiale’s Dazzling Spring, who is Provoked by an elite Tyrannical Ambition Knight. Chen Guo sees Jiale’s Dazzling Spring obliterated by a massive onslaught of ranged skills. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu command Tyrannical Ambition’s elite Knights and Clerics. Chen Guo observes Ye Xiu order Clerics to heal him. She sees Ye Xiu activate Knight’s Spirit to use Sacrificial Roar to take the aggro of all nearby enemies.

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu uses Fair Heroic Leap to return all of the damage that he absorbed against his opponents. She sees that Ye Xiu killed over 20 players.

Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie help out other Tyrannical Ambition branch guilds. Chen Guo looks over Ye Xiu’s shoulder to see the conversation between Ye Xiu and Zhang Jiale.

Volume 7: New Champions

Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu charge forward on North Bridge toward the wild boss, Mage Mordak, and Zhang Jiale’s Dazzling Spring. She sees Ye Xiu’s Unrivaled Super Hottie tank a lot of damage.[51] Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Knight, who is low health, get a life-saving Holy Heal from Little Cold Hands, a Tyrannical Ambition Cleric.[52] Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Knight drag Jiale’s Dazzling Spring into the water, which takes them away from North Bridge. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu and Jiale meet up on a tree trunk.[53] Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu chat with Zhang Jiale about their situations.[54]

Chen Guo understands that Ye Xiu infiltrated Tyrannical Ambition to find a Cleric to join the new team. She logs onto her Chasing Haze account. Chen Guo wonders how she will invited Little Cold Hands to join Happy.[55] Chen Guo’s Chasing Haze arrives at the North Bridge. With Ye Xiu’s help, Chen Guo sees Little Cold Hands. She runs over and offers a spot on a new professional team to Little Cold Hands.[56]

Chen Guo attempts to answer all of An Wenyi’s detailed questions about the professional team and is overwhelmed. Chen Guo drops off the problem to Ye Xiu. She listens to Ye Xiu explain that Challengers League is the ultimate test for the team to see if they have the capacity to fight in the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu has everything to lose if the team fails to win the Challengers League.[57] Chen Guo sympathizes with Ye Xiu’s struggle to drag himself and a new team into the Glory Pro Alliance. She listens to Ye Xiu reveal that if Wenyi becomes a superstar, who wants to leave Happy, that no one will stop him. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu convince Wenyi to join Happy.[58]

Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that he should take over the business in recruiting new players. Chen Guo adds An Wenyi as a friend on QQ. She creates a group chat with Ye Xiu, An Wenyi, Tang Rou, and Wei Chen. After Ye Xiu finishes his training session with Wenyi, Chen Guo invites Bao Rongxing into the group chat.[59] Chen Guo sees Bao Rongxing and Luo Ji arguing in the QQ group chat. Chen Guo adds Luo Ji on QQ. She gets his information for registering for Challengers League. Chen Guo is surprised that Luo Ji is an 18-year-old second-year Famous University student, who is a mathematics major. Chen Guo is excited that Happy has Ye Xiu, Tang Rou, Wei Chen, An Wenyi, Bao Rongxing, and Luo Ji, which is the bare minimum for a team to team competition.[60]

Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu can invite more older players to join, but they lack the potential needed to win championships in the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo talks to Bao Rongxing, who agrees to go to City H to join Happy. Chen Guo promises to find housing for her future team and goes online to research the area. Chen Guo offers Ye Xiu a part in house hunting, which Ye Xiu declines. Chen Guo invites Tang Rou to help her look for housing. Chen Guo quickly finds a decent apartment complex in a small area, Forest Park. She chooses a terraced house with six rooms. Chen Guo pays the initial deposit and goes back to the Internet cafe.[61] Chen Guo is disappointed to hear that Ye Xiu will pick out his room at their future gaming house later.[62]

On April 1, Chen Guo suffers from a small prank from her employees and Tang Rou. Later, Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Bao Rongxing will arrive soon with Wei Chen arriving tomorrow.[63] With Ye Xiu, Chen Guo greets Bao Rongxing. With Ye Xiu and Bao Rongxing, Chen Guo watches a Pro Alliance match between Excellent Era and Void, which her Internet cafe streams for its customers to watch. Chen Guo asks Ye Xiu on how Excellent Era will fare in the match. She learns from Ye Xiu that Excellent Era is a disaster with too many weaknesses. Chen Guo hears from Ye Xiu that Excellent Era might be relegated, which means that they will have to crush them in the Challengers League. Chen Guo watches Excellent Era capitulate to Void, 2-8. With Ye Xiu, Tang Rou, and Rongxing, Chen Guo goes out for a late night snack. Chen Guo enters the shop.[64]

Chen Guo greets Tao Xuan and Cui Li. Chen Guo hears Bao Rongxing interrupt and ask what Cui Li does as a club director. Chen Guo bursts out laughing. She listens to Ye Xiu answer Rongxing’s question. Chen Guo stands near Rongxing while Ye Xiu and Tang Rou sit down at a table. Chen Guo clarifies to Rongxing that they are not on the same side as Cui Li and Tao Xuan. When Ye Xiu calls Rongxing to sit at their table, Chen Guo goes over to the table. She maintains her composure with Rongxing’s continued mind games with Cui Li. Chen Guo and her friends order food. She hears Tao Xuan’s cold goodbye. When the food arrives, Chen Guo eats and talks with Ye Xiu. Chen Guo thinks that Tao Xuan and Cui Li might get Excellent Era relegated on purpose to crush Ye Xiu’s new team in Challengers League, which Ye Xiu does not believe.[65]

One day after Excellent Era’s humiliating defeat to Void, Chen Guo learns that Sun Xiang will withdraw for the rest of the season due to health reasons. In the afternoon, Chen Guo accepts Ye Xiu’s advice on Bao Rongxing, a security guard, to not worry about the Internet cafe’s security until Chen Guo calls for help. Chen Guo tells Rongxing to focus on playing Glory. In the early evening, Chen Guo sees a QQ message from her receptionist that a guest is in the Happy Internet Cafe. Chen Guo walks to the first floor receptionist desk. After Ye Xiu welcomes Wei Chen, Chen Guo shakes Wei Chen’s hand.[66]

Chen Guo helps Wei Chen move into the Forest Park gaming house. Chen Guo learns that Ye Xiu will not use Su Mucheng to do their dirty work as a spy against Excellent Era. Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu reveal that he crushed Excellent Era’s morale in the game to Wei Chen. Chen Guo shouts at Ye Xiu and Wei Chen to stop trash talking. With everyone, Chen Guo goes back to the Internet cafe and to room 213. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu start up the computer and open up the VOD folder with recorded matches. Chen Guo hears Wei Chen declare that the glorious Ye Xiu will analyze the Excellent Era’s first catastrophic match for everyone.[67]

After watching Excellent Era’s shambolic individual and group competitions, Chen Guo hears Wei Chen’s grief at Ye Xiu’s “sins” to cause Excellent Era’s catastrophic decline. Chen Guo looks at Excellent Era’s horrible post-match statistics versus Thunderclap. Next, Chen Guo watches a recording of Excellent Era’s match against Samsara. She watches an okay individual competition performance by Excellent Era with a horrible group competition, where Zhou Zekai sweeps the field. Chen Guo observes Excellent Era’s horrible team competition. With Ye Xiu playing the other Excellent Era match recordings, Chen Guo silently watches. Afterward, Chen Guo asks if Ye Xiu or Wei Chen discovered anything new. She learns from Wei Chen that Excellent Era’s previous form disintegrated with Sun Xiang’s erratic gameplay compared to Liu Hao, who recovers from Ye Xiu’s beating in-game to perform better in Excellent Era’s match against Samsara. Also, Chen Guo learns from Wei Chen that the other Excellent Era players, who were crushed by Ye Xiu, cannot recover their morale and skill level. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu explain Liu Hao’s moments of brilliance in matches means that he has given up on Excellent Era in order to secure a better future elsewhere.[68]

Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Sun Xiang’s removal from play is to protect him from blame of relegation as well as showing Excellent Era’s true strength without Sun Xiang if they escape relegation. After finishing their discussions, Chen Guo goes to her room to rest for the night. In the morning, Chen Guo gives up on renovating the entire second floor for their team at Ye Xiu’s advice. Chen Guo focuses on renovating a few rooms with her newly hired carpenters.[69] Chen Guo enters room 213 to discover Wei Chen’s loud and annoying laughter. She learns that Wei Chen crushed Bao Rongxing in eight consecutive duels.[70]

The next day, Chen Guo gets up early. On April 4, she prepares to go to Nanshan Public Cemetery for the Qingming Festival. Chen Guo takes a taxi with Ye Xiu and Su Mucheng. At the cemetery, Chen Guo and Mucheng buy some flowers and go their separate ways. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu, where Mucheng and he will be at. Chen Guo walks to her father’s grave and recalls the story of how she met Ye Xiu and her current dream to support Ye Xiu’s dream to fight for the Glory Pro Alliance championship one more time. Later, Chen Guo walks over to Ye Xiu and Mucheng’s general area. Chen Guo is shocked to see the name “Su Muqiu” on the gravestone.[71]

Chen Guo fails to hide when Ye Xiu sees her peeking at them. She sees Ye Xiu wave at her to come over. Chen Guo sees small gravestone and realizes that the eighteen-year-old Su Muqiu is Su Mucheng’s brother, who died eight years ago. Chen Guo is stunned to learn that Su Muqiu, Mucheng’s only family member, died in a car accident. From Ye Xiu, Chen Guo learns about a story of Glory’s game designers developing the Level 55 update to condemn the Unspecialized class as nonviable against the standard classes, where Su Muqiu declared “It’s a new start” to move on to play with a standard character class and research new classes. Chen Guo felt a lot of respect for Su Muqiu’s determination to continue after his precious Unspecialized research became worthless with Glory’s game designers buffing the standard classes. Chen Guo learns from Su Mucheng that the Dancing Rain account is originally Su Muqiu’s account for the Glory Pro Alliance.[72]

Chen Guo learns that Su Muqiu’s female account, Dancing Rain, was meant to tease Su Mucheng. Chen Guo understands why Ye Xiu asked to acquire Dancing Rain from Tao Xuan because Dancing Rain is the living embodiment of Su Muqiu’s legacy as well as Su Mucheng’s future. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Su Muqiu was going to join Excellent Era as a duo. Chen Guo imagines the unrivaled superpower of Excellent Era with Ye Xiu and Su Muqiu, a skilled equal to Ye Xiu, dominating the Glory Pro Alliance. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu boast that with Su Muqiu Excellent Era would win every Pro Alliance championship. With Mucheng going back to Excellent Era, Chen Guo and Ye Xiu go back to the Happy Internet Cafe. On the second floor, Chen Guo catches Wei Chen smoking and scolds him to stop. Chen Guo is angry that Rongxing wants to smoke before Ye Xiu advises against Rongxing’s desire to try a cigarette. Chen Guo is furious when Wei Chen and Ye Xiu ignore her and continue to smoke inside. Chen Guo walks off and stumbles into Tang Rou. Chen Guo complains to Tang Rou about Ye Xiu and Wei Chen’s illegal smoking inside the Internet cafe. Chen Guo hears Tang Rou explain that Old Wei’s smoking addiction is worse than Ye Xiu’s. Chen Guo informs Tang Rou that she joined Ye Xiu and Mucheng to go to Nanshan Public Cemetery to visit graves. Chen Guo tells Tang Rou the story of Su Muqiu and Su Mucheng with Ye Xiu. To Tang Rou, Chen Guo proclaims that she is even more determined to work hard for Ye Xiu’s team.[73]

For two weeks, Chen Guo directs the second floor renovation to completion. She shows off the room to Ye Xiu, Wei Chen, Tang Rou, and Bao Rongxing. Chen Guo has twelve computer stations divided into four groups, and Ye Xiu and Wei Chen’s computers are right under ventilators to pick up their secondhand smoke. She listens to Ye Xiu, Wei Chen, Tang Rou, and Rongxing say that the sunlight is creating too much glare. With Ye Xiu’s suggestion of hanging a curtain, Chen Guo and everyone work together to set up the curtain. Chen Guo is speechless when she wants a bright practice room and gets a dark room. She decides to turn on the crystal lamps, which is too bright. In the end, Chen Guo shuts the lights off on Ye Xiu’s call. With Ye Xiu mentioning the projector, Chen Guo shows off the projector for the team to watch matches away from the uneducated Glory players.[74]

Chen Guo hears Wei Chen and Ye Xiu plotting to assassinate guild team leaders for their valuable rare materials from the dungeons could be a viable plan. Chen Guo walks over and shouts at them to stop plotting immoral things to get ahead.[75] Chen Guo sees the news of Excellent Era’s impending relegation, where Excellent Era mentions Ye Qiu to deflect blame of relegation to him. Chen Guo is angry that Ye Xiu is still a target for Excellent Era. On May 13, Chen Guo watches the official relegation of Excellent Era in Season 8 and Sun Xiang’s press conference. Chen Guo is disgusted. She learns that Blue Rain, Samsara, Tiny Herb, Tyranny, Misty Rain, Void, 301, and Thunderclap are in the playoffs.[76]

Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu and Wei Chen’s debate about the possibility of facing Excellent Era in the first round of Challengers League, which would result in a devastating defeat to Excellent Era.[77] Chen Guo looks at Ye Xiu’s QQ chat with Tao Xuan. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu that Tao Xuan has principles and wants to defeat Ye Xiu in a proper match without rigging their match-up in the first round. Chen Guo learns from Tang Rou that Zhang Yichun is a world-class mathematician, who is known for several breakthroughs in several fields of mathematics.[78] Chen Guo learns that Luo Ji entered university at the age of seventeen without the required examinations. Chen Guo learns that next year Luo Ji will be a graduate student, who will be working toward a Master’s Degree and PhD. Chen Guo looks at Luo Ji’s mathematical research. Chen Guo does not understand the high-level math and jargon.[79]

From Ye Xiu, Chen Guo gets a portion of Luo Ji’s simplified guide to start attempting quests to pick up skill books. Chen Guo hears that Tang Rou and Bao Rongxing fail their first attempts at a 20-point skill quest. Chen Guo listens to Wei Chen complain passionately about the failures, which Ye Xiu tells Wei Chen to go outside to relax. With Ye Xiu’s directions, Chen Guo goes over to supervise Rongxing, who has trouble following the complex skill quest guide.[80] Chen Guo sees that Tang Rou and Bao Rongxing each win a 25-point skill book from their second quest. Chen Guo opens the door out of the practice room and yells that a skill book dropped to Ye Xiu and Wei Chen. Chen Guo tells Ye Xiu that she has already completed these single-attempt quests in the past. Chen Guo learns from Wei Chen that 1650 skill points are possible from theoretically winning all of the quest drops. Chen Guo hears Wei Chen proclaim his Windward Formation account has 4920 skill points, which is more than the highest officially recognized Desert Dust’s 4880 skill points.[81]

Chen Guo hears that Ye Xiu wins a 20-point skill book drop. Chen Guo hears Wei Chen suggest that he can conquer the accounts market with his extremely high skill point accounts. Chen Guo learns from Ye Xiu mention that the game company will change the programming code once they realize Wei Chen is exploiting skill book drop chances.[82] Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu say they do not have time to waste on creating high skill points accounts to sell. Chen Guo listens to Wei Chen abandoning the possible accounts business and to focus on building Happy. Chen Guo warns Ye Xiu to tell Luo Ji about selling the skill books guide. Chen Guo realizes that Wei Chen’s guide might be exploited by all of the professional clubs. Chen Guo listens Ye Xiu’s plan to sell a buyout for the guide to prevent its proliferation. Chen Guo guesses that Ye Xiu wants to sell a buyout to Lou Guanning.[83]

Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu contact Lou Guanning to sell Luo Ji’s improved skill book guide. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s QQ chat with Guanning, who only wants nine high skill point accounts.[84] Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu fail to sell the guide to Guanning. Chen Guo does not like improving Samsara’s pro accounts. Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s Lord Grim reach 5000 skill points. Chen Guo agrees with Ye Xiu’s reduction of skill point quests from the version of the guide to sell to Samsara. Chen Guo watches Ye Xiu prepare a 1000-skill point guide to sell to Samsara. Chen Guo informs Ye Xiu that her Chasing Haze only managed to get 280 out of the possible 1600 skill points. Chen Guo buys a plane ticket for Ye Xiu to visit Samsara’s club headquarters.[85]

At the Happy Internet Cafe, Chen Guo sees Ye Xiu’s return from Samsara Headquarters and hears Wei Chen ask how much money did they get for the skill books guide.[86] Chen Guo nervously looks at Ye Xiu. She is disappointed that Ye Xiu only has 2 million RMB in dungeon materials from Samsara. A few moments later, Chen Guo is shocked by Ye Xiu’s 6 million RMB from Samsara. Chen Guo hears from Ye Xiu that Samsara will pay 12 million RMB over 12 months. Chen Guo is speechless that Ye Xiu sold the guide for a total of 20 million RMB.[87]

Chen Guo hears Wei Chen’s call to improve their characters’ equipment. Chen Guo hears Ye Xiu advise Tang Rou and Bao Rongxing to finish the Heavenly Domain quests as soon as possible. Chen Guo sees that Tang Rou’s Soft Mist has reached 5000 skill points.[88] Chen Guo listens to Ye Xiu’s QQ chat with An Wenyi. Chen Guo learns that Wenyi’s Little Cold Hands has 1220 skill points to potentially gain. Chen Guo hears that Wenyi is hesitant to send his Little Cold Hands account to Ye Xiu. Chen Guo is surprised that An Wenyi accepts 2000 RMB from Wei Chen as collateral for his Little Cold Hands account. She expresses her discontent with Wei Chen. Later, Chen Guo learns that Blue Rain, Samsara, Tiny Herb, Tyranny, Misty Rain, Void, Thunderclap, and 301 Degrees enter the playoffs. The first round of matches have Blue Rain vs. 301 Degrees, Thunderclap host Samsara, Tiny Herb vs. Void, and Tyranny vs. Misty Rain. On the first day of playoffs, Chen Guo sees Blue Rain host 301 Degrees, where Blue Rain obliterates 301 Degrees. On the second day, Chen Guo watches Samsara vs. Thunderclap, where Samsara’s improved characters via Ye Xiu’s skill book guide annihilate Thunderclap. On the third day, Chen Guo observes Void host Tiny Herb, where Void struggles to a draw against Tiny Herb. On the fourth day, Chen Guo watches Misty Rain host Tyranny, where Misty Rain manages to grind out a victory against Tyranny.[89]
