Chapter 5: Wild Little Fan


  两天后,泰伦在看书的时候,接到了一封来自官方的邮件。

Two days later, while Tyler was reading, he received a mail from the government.

  邮件里说,光临传媒想要征得他的许可,使用他上一次对战时的录像来剪辑,加入他们的节目里,在下周进行播出。这个许可的收费标准是:最终节目里泰伦每出现一秒,就会收到800元。

In the mail, it wrote that Light Media wants to obtain his permission to use the recordings of his first battle and edit it and then added to their program to be broadcasted next week. The charge for their usage of his recordings are: for every second Tyler is shown in the video, he will receive 800 yuan.

  这个价格可以说非常的高了,这主要是因为泰伦一出现就被GNA评价在“B级选手”的列表当中。B级选手的代言和出场价格是有下限标准的,低了的话,电竞协会还会上门抗议。

This price can be said to be very high, the main reason for it was because of how Tyler was evaluated and listed as a “B grade player” by the GNA immediately after his first public show. There was a minimum appearance price and endorsement price for B grade players, if the price was too low, the E-Sport Association would drop by and protest.

  所以即便泰伦连真名都还没露,光临传媒也不得不主动给他抬到了B级的价格上。

As such, even though Tyler has not even revealed his real name, Light Media has no choice but to actively seek him out with a B grade price.

  于是在一周后,泰伦就收到了接近四万元的“出场费”。

Therefore, a week later, Tyler obtained an “appearance fee” of nearing forty thousand yuan.

  光临传媒旗下有电竞直播平台,也有视频网站,也有门户网站。

Light Media has a platform for live broadcasts of player competitions, a website where they put their videos and a web portal.

  他们拿了泰伦的授权以后,把他的录像收进了两个节目。一个是月播的“X月精彩锦集”,做的是每个月的电竞比赛当中最精彩镜头的总结,娱乐性比较强;一个是和GNA合作的“XX攻略解说”项目,每一期都会提出某个职业,对其PK手法进行分析,其中会选用有代表性的选手和比赛来举例或解说,这个就专业性比较强。

After they obtained Tyler’s permission, they put his recordings to use in two programs. One was a monthly broadcast called “X Month’s Marvelous Collection”, which showed the best scenes of the e-sport competition for each month, so it was more of an entertainment show. The other one was the “XX Strategy Explanation” that was done with GNA’s cooperation. Every episode, it would pick out a certain class and analyze their PK skills. They would choose representable players and competitions as an example or comment. This was a much more professional program.

  后者可能不太好做,通常要有足够的素材才会做完。

The later might not be too easy to do, often times they needed enough source material to finish it.

  但前者正好很快就播出了,泰伦PK那名可怜的机关枪法师的录像被放到了最后一个的位置上。

But the former was quickly broadcasted. The video of Tyler PKing that poor mage was placed at the very end of the show.

  当一个硕大的“1”字倒数完毕,镜头就直接从泰伦暗金色的眼瞳特写上开始,慢慢拉出来……

When the large “1” countdown ended, the camera focus started on Tyler’s dark golden eyes and slowly pulled out…

  一场比赛几乎完全被剪辑了进去。法师“开机关枪”,泰伦爆发粘上,法师闪现,泰伦同时阴影跳跃、爆发出骇人攻击速度,法师用替身法术逃离、反击,泰伦迅速跟进、收割走人头……其过程一波三折、分外刺激,精彩程度也确实不需要剪掉什么。

Almost the entire competition was edited in. The mage “starting up his cannon”, Tyler acceleration and catching up, the mage using Flicker, then Tyler’s Shadow Jump, showcasing his terrifying attack speed. The mage using stand-in magic to escape and ,counterattack Tyler quickly following and taking his life… the entire scene was full of twists and turns that greatly excited the watchers. Such a wonderful scene truly did not have much to edit out.

  这个系列的视频播放量一向很高,毕竟有很多人不爱看直播,就爱看一些特别精彩的视频找个乐子。

The video playback rate of this series was always high, after all, a lot of people don’t like to watch the live broadcast and just like to watch some exciting videos for fun.

  结果满屏幕都是飘来荡去的彩色弹幕:“千万别喝水,前方瞬间爆炸!”“前方核能!非战斗人员迅速撤离!”“妈问跪!”

As a result, the screen was full of colorful texts flying by: “Do not drink water! There’s an explosion ahead!” “Nuclear explosion ahead warning!” “Those who cannot take excitement retreat!” “I’m kneeling!”

  评论区里架起了高楼,他们开始猜测“419号选手”的真实身份。大多数人都认为“419号”是成名已久的高手,纷纷往排行榜上有名的刺客身上猜起来。

The comments area was going at full throttle, they were guessing and discussing “Player 419’s” true identity. Most of the people thought that “Player 419” was an expert that was long famous, they started to guess from the charts of famous assassins.

  “四爷”的名号在网络上渐渐响亮起来,而老古董泰伦先生现在还不知道自己的绰号就这样被敲定了。

The name “Lord Fourth” gradually spread and became known far and wide in the internet world. And antique Mr. Tyler was unknown to the fact that his nickname was decided just like that.

  三天后,泰伦又参加了十六进八的比赛。

Three days later, Tyler participated in the top sixteen matches.

  这回对手是个召唤师,还是那种慢热型的召唤,最擅长从一个召唤物开始铺垫场面,只要能稳住十秒钟就能用五个召唤物拖成拉锯战,只要三十秒不死就能以仅剩的一丝血,召唤出十个召唤物把敌人围殴成泥巴……

His opponent this time was a Summoner, and even a slow starter summoner who is good at setting up the scene with a single summon. As long as he has ten seconds to get settled, he can summon five to do a close-combat battle, then if his opponent doesn’t die in thirty seconds, then he can summon ten more summons to gang up and beat up their opponent…

  然而很可惜,他被泰伦死死地克制着。

Unfortunately for him, he was tightly controlled by Tyler.

  连解说都不知道说什么了,“四爷”的恐怖爆发力有目共睹,你一个穿布甲的脆弱法系职业还想拖住十秒钟?太奢侈了好么!

Even the host doesn’t know what to say. “Lord Fourth’s” terrifying acceleration in speed and attack was something obvious to all. You summoner, a cloth-armor weak magic class want to hold on for ten seconds? That’s way too luxurious.

  整个比赛还不到十秒,召唤师就躺在自己要死要活拖出来的第二个召唤物身边,死不瞑目了。

The entire match had not even last ten seconds when the summoner was lying next to his near-death second summon’s side, dying full of regrets.

  比赛结束以后,主持人又要问感言。

After the match, the anchor asked if they wanted to say anything about their current feelings.

  召唤师都不知道自己有什么感言,虚弱地说:“我比较倒霉……遇上了天敌。”

The summoner didn’t even know what he was feeling, he weakly spoke, “I am rather unlucky… to meet my natural enemy.”

  观众们纷纷点头,露出同情的神色。

The audience nodded one after another in agreement, showing him their sympathy.

  轮到泰伦发表感言。他接过话筒后,淡定地说:“不。”

When it was Tyler’s turn to speak, he took the microphone and said, “No.”

  主持人:果然没感言。

Anchor: As expected, no comment.

  观众们:果然又这样。

Audience: As expected, its the same as usual.

  大家一脸默契地略过了泰伦的“感言”,这场比赛就这样结束了。

Everyone passed over Tyler’s “comment” in mutual understanding and the competition was over just like that.

  接下来的八强争霸就是半决赛了,中间又有一周的休息时间。

The next top eight matches were the semifinals and players were given a week of rest time.

  因为剩下的对手还有七个,所以各个选手都开始有时间观察其他选手的资料、录像、成名绝技等等,在赛前做好充分的准备和针对战术。

Because there were seven opponents remaining, every player started to observe information, recordings, ultimate skills and so on when they had time to give themselves plenty of time to prepare and make tactics.

  只有泰伦简单地翻看了一下,就又跑去图书馆,去汲取这个世界的知识了。

Only Tyler browsed and gave them a simple look over before running off to the library again, to obtain more knowledge of this world.

  这些天泰伦常来图书馆。

Tyler has been coming to the library often these days.

  自从上次差点被粉丝认出裴戎的身份后,他总是会进行一些伪装。

Ever since that day he was almost recognized by a fan as Pei Rong, he would always disguise himself somewhat.

  但因为气质的关系,有时还是会被人偷窥或者光明正大地凝视,这是可以理解的。

But because of his aura, people would still peep or even openly stare at him. That was something he could understand.

  但是今天这个偷窥者……原地站立然后盯上十分钟是什么意思?

But the peeper today… what’s the meaning of standing and staring at him for over ten minutes?

  泰伦默默合上手上的书,假装不经意地抬起头,和那个偷窥了十分钟的家伙眼神对视。

Tyler silently closed the book he was holding, then naturally raised his head and stared at that ten-minute peeper in the eyes.

  通过书籍间的缝隙看一眼,偷窥者还是个二十多岁的年轻人,脸还很嫩,看着像混血儿。戴着一副细框眼镜,穿着一身笔挺的西装制服,胸口别着校徽和奖章,一看就是个优秀的学生代表。

Looking at his peeper through the crack of the books, he was a young man of around twenty years old, his face was still youthful and looked like a person of mixed blood. He wore a pair of thin-framed glasses, a well-ironed suit, and the school badge and medal was pinned onto his chest. He looked like an outstanding student representative.

  泰伦:“你好,有什么事?”

Tyler: “Hello, is there something you need?”

  对面愣了一下,迅速回神:“嗯,没有,我只是……”

The other went blank for a moment, then quickly replied, “Uh, no, I just…”

  人在找借口的时候,眼神很容易四处乱飘,下意识地搜寻灵感――他表现得太明显了,泰伦一眼就看出来了。

While people were looking for an excuse, their gaze would fly all over the place to subconsciously look for some insight—he was far too obvious about it, Tyler could tell from a look.

  泰伦:“在找书?”

Tyler: “Looking for a book?”

  年轻人:“呃,是的,我在找……《曲速引擎发展史》,乔治・J写的那本。”

Young man: “Uh, yes, I’m looking for… 《History of the Development of Speed Engines》 by George J.”

  “这里是政治历史区。”

“This is the political history area.”

  “啊,抱歉,我是新来的……”年轻人脸红了,而且非常明显,强作镇定地动了动喉结,避开泰伦的目光,“我对这里的分区不太熟悉。”

“Ah, I’m sorry, I’m new here…” The young man blushed, and it was very obvious. After he forcefully calmed himself, he looked away from Tyler’s sight, “I’m not too familiar with the layout here yet.”

  泰伦眯了眯眼,慢慢说道:“刚来就已经借过二十本以上的书了吗?”

Tyler narrowed his eyes, and slowly said, “New here, yet you already borrowed over twenty books?”

  “啊……?”

“Ah…?”

  “你的虚拟书签,已经使用了两页了,也就是说至少二十条借书记录。”

“Your virtual bookmark already has two pages used, in other words, you have borrowed at least twenty books.”

  年轻人满脸通红,感觉都快烧起来了,继续慌忙说道:“我……我是借用朋友的书签。”

The young man’s face was thoroughly red, he felt as if he was going to burn up. He said in a panic, “I… I’m borrowing a friend’s bookmark.”

  泰伦看了他半晌,忽然笑道:“不是要找书吗?我带你过去吧。”

Tyler looked at him for a while and suddenly smiled, “Aren’t you looking for a book? I’ll lead you over there.”

  “那真是……太感谢你了,真的。”

“Thank… Thank you very much, really.”

  “我叫泰伦,很高兴见到你。”

“My name is Tyler, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”

  “维克多……我也是。”

“Victor… me as well.”

  两人绕过那个书架的时候。

When the two of them walked past a bookshelf:

  维克多的内心:完了!我真是糟透了!第一次对话就连着撒了三个慌!刚才我有没有很讨人厌?今天出门的时候没忘记发蜡吧?应该没忘。他会不会讨厌发蜡的味道?……啊糟透了,快别继续走神了维克多……我刚才撒谎说要什么书来着?

In Victor’s mind: I’m done for! I ruined everything! Three lies in our first chat! Was I really annoying just now? I didn’t forget to use pomade when I left home today right? I probably used it. Would he hate the smell of pomade? …Ahhhhh everything is going terribly! Stop thinking about other things Victor… what book did I say I wanted when I lied?

  泰伦的内心:他喜欢我。啧啧。

In Tyler’s mind: He likes me. Tsk tsk.

   “你是附近的学生?”泰伦随口问。

“Are you a student nearby?” Tyler asked without much thought.

   “不,不是。”维克多道,“我是回来……给新生做开学演讲的,介绍一下母校帝国工程院。”

“No, I’m not.” Victor answered, “I am here… to give an opening lecture to the new students as an alma mater, introducing the Imperial Engineering Institute.”

   一般能受邀在开学典礼上演讲的,都是TOP10以内的优秀学生。

The ones that were invited to speak at the start of a university term were often times the top ten most outstanding students.

   泰伦:“你毕业前是很好的学生。”

Tyler: “You were a very good student before graduation.”

   维克多脸上又一热,说:“其实我不是个合格的学生,在校的时候也……也会逃课的。”

Victor’s face once again heated up, he replied, “Actually, I wasn’t a qualified student, at school I would also… also skip class.”

   “噢,人之常情。”

“Oh, it’s a natural behavior.”

   泰伦说着,停下脚步看了一眼书架上的标签。

As Tyler spoke, he stopped and looked toward the label on the bookshelf.

   在他转过头的那一瞬间,维克多深吸一口气:“……”救命啊谁来阻止我继续说下去!我应该告诉他我修了三个学位,实在安排不上课程,才会错过几门……

In that moment he turned his head, Victor took a deep breath: “……” Someone save me! Stop me from speaking down this hole! I should tell him I have three degrees, but because I really couldn’t schedule my classes at the time I wanted, I would miss so many of them…

   泰伦:“你刚才说要什么引擎的历史?”

Tyler: “What engine history book did you say you want?”

   维克多:“曲速引擎的历史,乔治·J博士的著作。”

Victor: “History of the Development of Speed Engines by Professor George J.”

   “看来不怎么常见,这是你的专业?”

“Looks like it’s not a common book, is this your major?”

   “不、不是。这是……我的兴趣爱好。”维克多道,“我总是看一些杂书,让你见笑了。”

“No, it’s not. It’s my… interest and hobby.” Victor added, “I always like to read all sorts of random books, I’m sorry you had to see such a scene.”

   泰伦:“这没什么。”

Tyler: “This is nothing.”

   维克多的内心此刻已经淌下清泪两行:不!快停止谦虚啊,快说你不是那种逃课看闲书的人啊维克多!男人该体面地表现自己的时候,怎么能这么怂!

In Victor’s mind, a mini him was already lying flat on the ground with tears streaming down his face: No! Stop being modest! Hurry and tell him you’re not a class skipper or random reader Victor! When a man should show himself with dignity, I need to man up and not act as a coward!

   几秒后。

A few seconds later.

   维克多:“那、那个……”

Victor: “Um, um…”

   “嗯?”泰伦自然地回过头看他。

“Hm?” Tyler looked back at him.

  维克多:“……”啊,我是谁?我在哪儿?我刚才要说什么来着?

Victor: “……” Ah, who am I? Where am I? What was I going to say just now?

   泰伦脸上始终带着温和的表情,慢慢地伸出手,向年轻人的耳畔伸过去,最后啪一下撑在他身后。

Tyler wore a gentle expression the entire time, he slowly reached out a hand, past the young man’s ears and finally braced himself against him.

   壁咚!

Kabedon!

   维克多受惊般后退一步,后背倚靠在身后的书架上,就着这个被壁咚的姿势,不知道闪躲。

Victor a step back due to being startled so suddenly, his back pressed against the bookshelf. With his current position of being kabedoned, he didn’t know where else to go.

   过了一会儿,他好像直接认命了,缩在书架前满脸通红,一双湛蓝色的眼睛无助地睁大,视线直勾勾粘在泰伦的脸上。

After a moment, as if he had surrendered to his fate, his face was entirely red while squirming in front of the bookshelf. His azure eyes helplessly opened wide and fixed on Tyler’s face.

   然后泰伦伸手从他背后的书架上取下了书,递给他:“曲速引擎的历史,是这本吗?”

Then Tyler reached out to take a book from teh bookshelf behind him, then handed to it, “History of the Development of Speed Engines, is it this one?”

   维克多:“……”

Victor: “……”

   “嗯?”泰伦发出一个单音节。

“Hm?” Tyler made a questioning sound.

   维克多回魂道:“是,是这本,谢谢你!”

Victor returned to his senses and replied, “It’s, it’s this one. Thank you!”

   “不用谢。”

“You’re welcome.”

   维克多内心:快问联系方式!联系方式!方式!式!

Victor’s mind: Hurry up and ask for contact details! Contact details! Details! Tails!

   两秒后。

Two seconds later.

   维克多:“你……你……你真是个好人。”

Victor: “You… You… You’re really a good person.”

   泰伦:“……”

Tyler: “……”

   维克多:“……”妈妈您儿子怂爆了QUQ。

Victor: “……” Mommy your son is about to die from regret QUQ.

   泰伦不知为何,有一种“在工作之余很无聊地抓住一只路过的仓鼠、然后狠狠欺负了他一把”的愉悦感。

Tyler did not know why, but he had a feeling of “being very bored at work so he grabbed a passing by hamster, then mercilessly teased it” joyfullness.

   他扬了扬手中的书,字正腔圆地问道:“对了,我有个问题想请教。这本书里有一个缩写一直没有解释过——什么是‘绩点’?”

He raised the book in his hand and calmly asked, “By the way, I have a question I’ve been trying to find the answer to. There is an abbreivated word in this book and it has never been explained, What is ‘Grade Point’?”

   维克多惊呆了:“G……什么?!”

Victor was shocked out of his mind: “G… what?!”

   泰伦说:“绩点,你也不知道吗?”

Tyler said: “Grade (Ji/G) Point (dian/spot), do you not know what it is either?”

   维克多整张脸都红了,耳垂快要滴出血的样子。

Victor’s entire face was red, his ears looked as if blood would drip soon.

   泰伦:“???”

Tyler: “???”

   维克多:“就、就是……人体……很敏感的地方……唔。”

Victor: “The, the place… that’s the most sensitive… on the human body… sob.”
