“I’ve discovered that ever since Lieyang joined Tianhuan in S10, Chi Shuo has been completely freed as everyone focused their attention and animosity towards Lieyang. In all three games of today’s match, the priority for banning wasn’t the jungler and all of Chi Shuo’s jungler cores were free. In the future, he can choose whichever jungler core he wants and that is the scary thing.” Beimu’s coach said helplessly.
“Yes. From what was seen so far, Tianhuan’s mid laner and jungler all have the ability to carry the rhythm of a game. They can now run many different comps, such as a support jungler with a mid laner core or a defensive mid laner with a jungler core. They can focus on macro play by dragging out a game, or set a fast pace with their mid/jungle duo. Their number of battle tactics had become aplenty.”
No one had thought that the inner workings of a team could completely change with just the addition of a new player.
The battle tactics and strategies of Tianhuan this season had indeed become unfathomable.
When competing against Yueying today, they took out one of Chi Shuo’s signature heroes called [Stealthy Rogue]. They can’t cross out the possibility that there might be older heroes of his making reappearances as well.
“The mid laner and jungler’s hero pools are too deep, so it’s hard for others to target. Yueying repeatedly targeted the top lane in this match but the results weren't good. They won the second game by swapping lanes and in the third game, Tianhuan completely destroyed their marksman.” Beimu’s coach analyzed.
“We don’t necessarily need a marksman.” Zhao Xinping suddenly said.
Beimu’s coach looked at her, only to see her expression icy cold while she said: “The strength in Tianhuan’s mid/jungler duo comps lies in them being able to quickly eliminate the enemy’s key carries which will allow them to establish dominance. A marksman is extremely fragile and is easy to get killed. However, if we chose nimble fighters for our lanes and a mage with good escaping abilities for the mid lane, Tianhuan would have no way to deal with us.”
Beimu’s coach stroked his chin, deep in thought over this. “Xinping’s idea isn’t bad at all. If both of our outer lanes chose a fighter, the overall lineup will be quite tanky. The disadvantages are that we would be fairly slower when we start to push towers, and we might also be in a deadlock when we try to reach their base. Hm… the coach team will explore this further so that when we face Tianhuan in the future, we might be able to give two fighters on the outer lanes and a nimble mid laner a try. A comp without any weak links on all three lanes.”
Meanwhile, at the backstage spectating area.
Fang Zhengqing yawned and said, “They finally finished the match at last. It’s already half past nine.”
Tianhuan vs Yueying’s match was originally scheduled to start at seven while Jingzhe vs Yaoguang’s match was at nine.
In the end, Tianhuan and Yueying’s match became very long, lasting more than 35 minutes. With the addition of bans and picks before the start of a game, post-game commercials, commentary, post-game interviews, and many more… the time overshot.
TL/n: It would be more accurate to say that two out of three games became bladder games, which means that the game became extremely long as both sides are unable to win, such that one’s bladder is about to burst, hence the name.
