Chapter 4: New Victory


  “我们的419号选手已经危在旦夕了――”

“Our Player 419 is already in a crisis—”

  话音刚落,就见泰伦原地翻滚起身,一个标准的起跑式爆发冲刺,越过飞行途中的奥术飞弹,瞬间来到对手的身前。

He had only just spoken when Tyler executed a roll on the spot and got up, breaking out into the standard sprinting form as he bypassed the missiles flying at him and arrived before his opponent in moments.

  解说:“哎我艹这什么爆发速度!他是捆绑式运载火箭吗?!”

The host exclaimed, “Oh my god, what kind of speed burst is this! Is he a carrier rocket?!”

  就在泰伦与对手还差一米间隔的同时,法师已经停止了引导中的奥术风暴,转而一个瞬发的“闪烁”(短距离传送法术),身影瞬间在身前十五米外出现。

At the moment Tyler was a meter away from his opponent, the Mage had already stopped his remote-controlled Arcane Storm. He quickly switched to using “Flicker” (short-distant teleportation spell), his figure then appeared fifteen meters away.

  “漂亮!”解说大叫,“这是什么意识!基本是刺客速度爆发的同时,法师已经在捏着闪烁了!一秒内完成的逃脱,这简直是神奇――”

“Beautiful!” The host shouted, “What kind of reaction is this! At the same time our Assassin accelerated, our Mage was already doing his Flicker! This is simply magical—”

  还没说完,只见泰伦根本没停顿,紧跟着就是一个“阴影跳跃”,直接从法师身下的影子中现身。

Before he could finish his commentary, he watched as Tyler use a “Shadow Jump” without pause and appeared from below the Mage’s shadow.

  解说顾不得脸疼,连忙接着道:“0.5秒!0.5秒就追上了有木有!刺客的反应竟然更快,这简直是神奇的一幕!”

The host bore through the imaginary face slap he was given and promptly switched, “0.5 seconds! He caught up to him in just 0.5 seconds! This Assassin’s reaction speed is actually even faster than our Mage’s, this is truly an amazing scene!”

  泰伦从法师背后现身后,立刻先是对着他后脑勺来了一下,将他打入短暂的眩晕状态。然后趁着眩晕的时间,右手短刀“凯歌”进行抹喉,左手匕首“岑寂”一个背刺。

When Tyler showed himself from behind the mage, the first thing he did was to aim for the back of his head, knocking him into a short-term dizzy state. Then while he was dizzy, the short sword “Paean” in his right hand headed for the mage’s throat while the dagger “Silence” in his left hand stabbed toward his back.

  当1.5秒后法师从眩晕状态清醒过来时,身上已经是“沉默”(无法施法)和“出血”(连续损失生命值)两个状态。

After 1.5 seconds passed, the mage finally got out of his dizzy state but he was already afflicted with the “silent” status (unable to cast magic) and “bleeding” status (continuous loss of health points).

  解说:“快到无与伦比的手速和命中率!刺客在1.5秒内进行了三个技能的连击,哎我艹算下来技能公共CD才0.5秒……他是不是作弊了?”

Host: “What an incomparably fast hand speed and hit rate! The assassin comboed three skills in the span of 1.5 seconds. My god, if you think about it, isn’t the CD (cooldown) of skills 0.5 seconds… could he be cheating?”

  泰伦没有作弊,他使用的不是技能,而是技巧。

Tyler was not cheating, what he used weren’t skills, but technique.

  由系统进行释放的技能,都有1秒以上的公共冷却时间;但是由他的双手使用的技巧,只能被判定在普通攻击范围内,不会有冷却这种说法。

The skills released by the system all had cooldowns of at least one second and higher; but the techniques he personally used, they could only be judged as within the boundaries of normal attacks, so there was no such thing as cooldowns.

  但这些技巧产生的效果,却是泰伦身经百战总结来的经验,绝不会有半点掺水。

But the result of these techniques could be summed up as all the experience Tyler accumulated as a veteran assassin, there was no way they were superficial in any way.

  法师已经惊恐地发现自己的生命值红了(低于30%)。

The mage was already alarmed to find out his health points was in the red (lower than 30%).

  解说:“红血了!马上就要见胜负!法师果断使用了最后的保命技能,‘奥法替身’,立刻脱离了所有负面状态,并且逃离到15米外,原地只留下了一个稻草人替身――”

Host: “Red blood! We’re about to see the outcome of this battle! Our mage decisively used his last life-saving skill, ‘Magic Scapecrow’. It immediately clears him of all negative status ailments and escapes 15 meters away, leaving a scarecrow stand-in where he originally stands—”

  下一刻,稻草人替身还猛然爆炸了!

In the next moment, the scarecrow stand-in suddenly exploded.

  “替身爆炸!稀有的反击法术!”解说兴奋地大喊,“刺客终于不是满血了!终于不是满血了同志们!”

“The stand-in has exploded! What an uncommon counterattack magic!” The host excitedly shouted, “Our assassin is finally no longer at full health! He’s finally not at full health everyone!”

  观众:“……”为什么听着好心酸啊。

Audience: “……” Why do they feel so sad hearing that?

  奥法替身和替身的爆炸都是瞬间发生,根本没有躲避的余地。

The Magic Scapecrow and Scapecrow Explosion both happened in a moment, there was simply no leeway to dodge it.

  在那一瞬间,泰伦凭借战斗本能进行后跳,堪堪用手臂抵挡住了致命伤害,头顶的血条下降到……97%。

In that split-second, Tyler relied purely on battle instincts to jump back, using his arm to block the fatal damage. The health bar above his head dropped to… 97%.

  解说:“……妈的这个刺客根本没法打啊。他的神经系统是不是量子做的,以光速进行反应?”

Host: “…Damn, this assassin is simply impossible to beat. Is his nervous system made of quantum and reacts at the speed of light?”

  刚说完,泰伦已经再次一个速度爆发,以法师根本没有来得及反应的速度,重新近身。

He had just finished speaking when he suddenly accelerated again, nearing the mage who simply didn’t have the time to react.

  法师所有保命技能已出,唯一没在冷却的就是他的奥术风暴,只能咬牙为了最后的尊严……嗖嗖嗖放出了五枚飞弹。

The mage had used all his life-saving skills, the only skill not on cooldown was Arcane Storm. He could only grit his teeth and do a last stand… five missiles were fired off with a whoosh.

  然后,就没有然后了。

After that, there wasn’t an after.

  “抹喉又见抹喉!踏马的每把都击中致命弱点打出暴击伤害,这是什么命中率!什么命中率啊同志们!1秒了……2秒了!法师要没了!”解说怒吼,“没了!――唉,果然没了!胜负已分。”

“It’s another throat-slit! Damn he can hit that fatal weakpoint, just what kind of hit rate is this! What kind of hit rate is this everyone! One second… two seconds! The mage is about dead!” The host shouted, “And he’s dead! —Alas, he’s dead as expected! Victory and defeat has been decided.”

  下一秒,系统宣告了胜负。

In the next second, the system declared victory for Tyler.

  法师化为白光飞逝,重新回到台上。

The mage turned into white light and flew away, back to the stage.

  泰伦将凯歌和岑寂收回鞘中,紧接着也飞去了台上。

Tyler sheathed Paean and Silence then also flew up to the stage.

  主持人哒哒哒走上来说道:“恭喜419号选手赢得胜利,请问两位选手有什么感言?”

The host walked up to them, his shoes clicking on the floor, “Congratulation Player 419 for obtaining victory, may I ask if you two players have anything to say?”

  话筒先传给法师,法师犹豫了一下后说:“我感觉……在被追杀。”

The microphone was first passed on to the mage. The mage hesitated for a moment before speaking, “I feel… as if I’m being hunted.”

  主持人呵呵笑:“擂台上面的单挑,一向是追杀与被追杀呀。”

The host gently laughed, “The duels on the arena are always killing and be killed.

  法师:“……”要么你来试试被419号追杀?你真的体验过绝望吗?

Mage: “……” Why don’t you try being hunted down by Player 419? Have you ever felt such despair yourself before?

  终于,他忍住了没说。

In the end, he endured the urge and did not say it.

  话筒又被传给了泰伦。

The microphone was then passed to Tyler.

  主持人还没问“要发言吗?”。

The host has not even asked if he “want to say something?”.

  泰伦上来就说:“不。”

Tyler was already a step ahead and said, “No.”

  主持人:“我们的419号又没有感言吗?哎呀,观众们可都是很好奇,你是怎么做到在1.5秒内释放三个技能的?这突破了系统对技能释放速度的规定吧。”

Host: “Our Player 419 still has nothing to say? But alas, our audiences are all very curious, just how did you use three skills in 1.5 seconds? That breaks the fixed skill usage speed of the system.”

  泰伦:“商业机密。”

Tyler: “Trade secret.”

  台下观众已经一阵一阵地喊了起来,议论声络绎不绝,女生们同时在不停对着泰伦尖叫和吹口哨。

The audience offstage had already started to yell one after another, discussions went on without end and the ladies were all screaming and whistling at Tyler.

  主持人挤眉弄眼地问:“哎呀,说说嘛大帅哥,五万元换你的商业机密,换吗?”

The host winked and asked, “Oh dear, tell us handsome. Fifty thousand yuan for your trade secret, are you willing?”

  泰伦:“五万?”

Tyler: “Fifty thousand?”

  主持人:“这可不是笔小数目了,不知道台上给不给报销呢?”

Host: “That isn’t a small number, who knows if the higher-ups will reimburse me?”

  泰伦:“不是技能,是技巧。”

Tyler: “It’s not a skill, it’s technique.”

  主持人:“……”

Host: “……”

  观众:“……”

Audience: “……”

  解说:“四爷!你是我爸爸!我先跪为敬了!”

Host: “Lord Fourth! You are my father! I will kneel to you in respect right now!”

  当泰伦拿着五万元淡定地走了之后,现场还停留在沸腾的热议中。

After Tyler took the fifty thousand yuan and calmly walked away, the arena was still swept up in heated debates.

  “技能”和“技巧”的区别,在于前者是系统控制释放,后者是玩家自由操控身体来释放。这其中的区别之大,犹如云泥之别。

The difference between “Skill” and “Technique” was that the former was controlled and used by the system, the latter is the player freely controlling their own bodies and using abilities they have. The difference between them was huge, like the sky and ground.

  打个比方,“技能”就像雕版印刷,同一套模版人人都能用,人人用出来都一个样子,只有硬件(人物属性、装备等)上能影响结果。“技能”一经获取,终生都只需要给系统一个指令,马上就一成不变地做出来了。

For example, “Skills” were like carved printing blocks, the same blocks can be used by anyone, and the results are the same for everyone that uses it, only their hardware (Player attributes, equipment etc.) would influence the output. You just need to get “Skills” and for the rest of your life, you only need to give an order to the system and you will immediately get the same unchanging result.

  “技巧”则像一支画笔,门槛低、自由度高,人人都能尝试,但是有的就是狗爬,有的就是传世名作。就算是大师级人物,也可能状态一好就成神作,一不小心就身败名裂。

“Techniques” were like a painting brush, the threshold was low with a high degree of freedom, everyone can try it. But some go at it at the speed of a dog crawl while others make famous masterpieces that are passed down through history. Even someone at the level of a great master, can become god while in good condition, but fall and lose their standing in a moment of carelessness.

  有些人自由控制出来的技巧可能半点作用也不起,甚至反过来伤到自己;有些人的技巧不但效果拔群,还能自由选择速度、目标,没有冷却时间,甚至突破系统所能达到的各项极限。

The techniques that some people freely control and use might not have any usage at all, some might even hurt themselves instead. Some people have techniques that not only drew crowds but also have freedom in choosing their speed and target without cooldown time. They can break through the system limitations.

  这其中有着无限的可能性。

There were unlimited possibilities within it.

  一般来说,世界级高手都会专注训练一两项符合自己优势的技巧,一旦成功掌握,这项技巧就会成为他们的“成名绝技”。

Generally speaking, world-class experts would concentrate on training one to two techniques that corresponded to them and can give them an advantage. Once they succeed, this skill will become their “Famous Ultimate”.

  因为自由度大,因此每个人的技巧都很有个人特色,辨识度极高;而且因为训练不易、难度极大等等原因,通常一个高手只专注于一两门技巧。

Because there was a lot of freedom, everyone’s technique have their own individual characteristics and were easy to recognize. Furthermore, because they were hard to train, hard to make and so on, a regular expert would only concentrate on one to two techniques.

  已知的拥有技巧最多的高手是“诡秘手”梵多,是上一届甲联排行最高的刺客,出道以来一共展现过8种技巧,完全就以“技巧超多仿佛无底洞”而闻名。

The known expert with the most techniques was “Secretive Hand” Flander, the highest ranked assassin in E-Sports League. They have counted eight different techniques, and was well-known because of his “overly excessive techniques like a bottomless pit”.

  底下的动图还是那两张,没有更新。

The gifs below were still those two, they weren’t updated.

  最底下的观众留言则继续爆炸:

The comments at the very bottom continued to blow up:

  “四爷,我也跪了!”

“Lord Fourth, I also kneel to you!”

  “神TM四爷,那个‘不。’的一句个人名言是怎么回事啊![笑cry]”

“My godly Lord Fourth, what is with that ‘No.’ under your quotes! [laughing and crying]

  大概是因为今天解说在激动的时候,直接从“419号选手”简化,喊成了一声“四爷”,网友们就开始跟风喊起泰伦“四爷”来。

It was probably because the host had directly shortened his name “Player 419” and shouted it as ‘Lord Fourth’ when he was overly excited. The people online then joined the trend and started to call him ‘Lord Fourth’ as well.

  “四爷威武雄壮!四爷帅得我合不拢腿。”

“Lord Fourth is mighty and majestic! Lord Fourth is so cool that I can’t close my legs.”

  “四爷我要给你生猴子!”

“Lord Fourth, I want to give birth to a monkey for you!”

  “四爷我要给你生花果山!”

“Lord Fourth, I want to give birth to a flowering mountain for you!”

  泰伦:“……”我不是很懂你们现代人。

Tyler: “……” I really don’t understand you modern people.

  泰伦感觉非常不痛不痒,就好像磨完了刀、洗好了澡,高高兴兴地出门去PK,结果在门口一脚踹死一个小怪,就收工回家了似的。

Tyler felt as if he had done nothing substantial today. It was like he had finished sharpening his knife, took a nice bath, then cheerfully went out to PK. But the result was that he had kicked a small monster to death on the way out of his door, then cleaned up and went back home.

  刚兴奋起来就没了,非常的不满足。

He had just gotten excited and it was over, he felt very unsatisfied.

  不过,在过去的五百多年里,这样的情况也并不罕见。归根结底,当一个人的技艺已经磨砺到数一数二的位置时,当然就会产生难以全力以赴的失落感,还有找不到匹配对手的寂寞感。

However, in his past five hundred years, this kind of situation wasn’t rare. Ultimately, once someone’s skill level has already been trained until they were one of the very best, they would naturally start to lose the feeling of actually making an all-out effort and the loneliness from not being able to find many opponents.

  但即便如此,对刺客来说也是值得高兴的。

But even so, it was something worth being happy for to the assassin.

  他和这些在家里玩游戏的人不同。

He was different from these people that play games at home.

  他们玩的是酣畅淋漓的对决,过程酷炫而浪漫,赢了是满堂喝彩,输了只不过拍拍屁股回家;他过的是刀尖上喋血的人生,过程乏味而残忍,赢了是默默舔舐伤口,输了就是一无所有、死无全尸。

They fought as they pleased, showing off their cool, dazzling or romantic sides, earning themselves the cheers of the audience, even if they lost, it’s just a pat on the back and back home they go. The life he spent was one of steel and blood, over his tedious and cruel lifetime, he silently took care of his wounds, if he lost, then that would be the end of everything, a death without an intact corpse.

  现在泰伦来到了他们的世界,这个世界在相较之下是如此的光明、友善。但凡能摆脱杀戮与罪恶,对他来说,就是一个最好的时代。

Now that Tyler has arrived to their world, this world was comparable to light, very friendly. Being able to break away from a life of slaughter and evil, to him, this was the best era to live in.

  而无论哪个世界,泰伦・奥丁都是毋庸置疑的强者。

And no matter the world, Tyler Odin was doubtlessly strong.

  强者,就是能承担起最坏的宿命,也能配得上最好的光荣。

The strong, are those who can undertake the worse fates and can still fit to the best honor and glory.
