My Milk’s Not Working invited Shen Yanming to a 1v1 match and selected a character named “Destroyer.”

This character was a tank, and its most notable feature was wielding an enormous, oversized iron hammer.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Why use the Destroyer? =.=

[My Milk’s Not Working]: Didn’t you say you wanted me to hammer you?

[I’m Messing Around Again]: …

Shen Yanming tugged at the corner of his mouth, thinking to himself that he really did ask for it.

He couldn’t tell if My Milk’s Not Working was too straightforward, or if he had a talent for dark humor.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: So, what should I play?

[My Milk’s Not Working]: Anything is fine

Tanks belonged to the defense category, with high health and defense but relatively low damage output.
In a 4v4 battle, tanks were responsible for absorbing damage in the early game and later for securing the crown.
They were like diligent and dutiful workers for the throne.

Due to the nature of their class, tanks were generally not chosen for 1v1 matches against other players.

Of course, compared to healers, tanks had a much higher appearance rate.1Appearance rate: rate of being chosen to play

Shen Yanming looked at the countdown timer above the character selection bar and considered which character he should use.

My Milk’s Not Working mainly played as a healer, and they had played together many times without Milk’s Not Working trying other roles.

While professional players couldn’t be limited to just one position, it was hard to say how skilled they were in other roles.

Shen Yanming thought that if My Milk’s Not Working used the healer role against him in a solo match, it would indeed restrain him.
However, if he switched to a different class, like the not-so-advantageous tank, the outcome would be uncertain.

To be fair, should he also choose a tank?

But then, My Milk’s Not Working sent a message.

[My Milk’s Not Working]: Play what you like.
Don’t you like playing as White Wolf?

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Are you sure?

White Wolf was Shen Yanming’s favorite character.
In his shameless words, this character was designed just like him—handsome and fierce.

But his fondness for playing White Wolf was mainly due to his familiarity with the character and his understanding of its mechanics; he played it proficiently.

Since My Milk’s Not Working said so, Shen Yanming didn’t want to be overly coy and chose White Wolf for the match.

Shen Yanming had soloed with My Milk’s Not Working before, and during that match, he confidently triggered events all over the map but ended up being caught off guard.
This time, he planned for a quick victory.

Dealing with a tank was different from dealing with a healer.
The tank’s weakness lay in the early game, but once they reached a higher level, their health would become incredibly thick, and attacking them would be like scratching an itch—it was hard to kill them.

Shen Yanming thought My Milk’s Not Working would find a place to hide and farm a bit in the early game.
However, he was surprised to see that My Milk’s Not Working was also aggressive.
They confronted each other right in the middle of the map from the start.

In their previous solo match, although My Milk’s Not Working ad made Shen Yanming look quite pathetic, to the point that Shen Yanming still felt like a panting dog when he recalled it, My Milk’s Not Working victory in that match relied more on tactics than pure skill.

This time was different; neither of them triggered events or picked up equipment.
It was a test of pure gameplay.

Initially, they cautiously probed each other, trading blows.

Normally, if there was a significant skill gap between the two sides, this stage would quickly determine the match.
However, since they were evenly matched and both made no major mistakes, they both wanted to finish the match quickly, but it ended up dragging on for a while.

It was hard to say which side had the advantage.
After executing a combo, Little White Wolf’s damage gradually increased, but Destroyer had thick health and damage reduction skills, making it difficult to take him down.

Their confrontation wasn’t like standing on an immovable arena; they had to move to dodge each other’s skills.

When the Destroyer took advantage of Little White Wolf’s momentary distraction and hid in the jungle behind him, then suddenly emerged from a different direction, Shen Yanming clicked his tongue in annoyance.

My Milk’s Not Working had been moving in that direction the whole time, and he had unknowingly been led along.

There were many obstacles here, making visibility particularly poor.

When the Destroyer appeared from another direction, Little White Wolf didn’t react in time and was hammered by the Destroyer’s ultimate ability.

The Destroyer’s ultimate ability had no time limit and could be continuously used until interrupted.
Each hit on an opponent would double the damage of the next hit.
In theory, it could result in an infinite combo, accumulating hits until it became a one-hit kill.
However, when using the ultimate ability, the Destroyer’s movement speed would slow down.
Additionally, other players were not fools and wouldn’t just stand there and let themselves be hit.
Therefore, the occurrence of a one-hit kill like that was usually rare in high-level matches.

When Shen Yanming was hammered, his first reaction was to interrupt the ability.
However, My Milk’s Not Working seemed to be prepared.
He executed the move near the edge of the jungle, immediately disappearing after delivering a blow.

Shen Yanming estimated the opponent’s position and threw a dart, but unfortunately, it missed by a hair’s breadth in the blind spot of the vision.

Afterward, the Destroyer appeared again and struck with a hammer, then quickly retreated.

Little White Wolf, played by Shen Yanming, stood on the outskirts of the bushes, feeling a little confused.

It felt like he was playing Whac-A-Mole2Whac-a-Mole is a popular arcade game where the player’s objective is to hit or “whack” as many mole heads as possible that randomly pop up from various holes in a game board., and he seemed to be whacked by the mole.

When the Destroyer raised their hammer for the third time, Shen Yanming finally seized the fraction of a second to interrupt their skill and continued using combos in an attempt to take down the Destroyer in one go.

The interrupted skill didn’t seem to faze the Destroyer at all, he calmly activated a damage reduction shield on himself.

In the world of martial arts, speed was everything.3In the world of martial arts, speed was everything: “天下武功,唯快不破” (Tiānxià wǔgōng, wéi kuài bùpò), a chinese idoms It is commonly attributed to the martial arts novel “The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber” by Jin Yong.
The idiom can be interpreted as “In all martial arts, only speed is invincible” or “The greatest martial arts technique is unmatched speed.” It emphasizes the significance of agility and quickness in martial arts, suggesting that being fast and nimble can overcome any defense or technique.

At this moment, both of them were left with just a sliver of health.
Whoever had a faster reaction would come out on top.

Shen Yanming thought that a player whose main role was a healer couldn’t possibly be faster than him, no matter what.

But he had underestimated My Milk’s Not Working.

The Destroyer approached the Little White Wolf while dodging most of the darts with agile footwork, appearing as if they were going to take all the skill damage but actually managing to avoid most of the darts.
In the end, they dealt a fatal blow to the Little White Wolf, securing the first kill.

The Little White Wolf respawned on the spot, and the Destroyer’s state was fully restored by the system.

Ten minutes had passed in the game.
The Destroyer had two kills, and Little White Wolf had one.

My Milk’s Not Working won.

Shen Yanming lost the match, but his fighting spirit was ignited.
He pulled My Milk’s Not Working for another round.

He couldn’t believe it!

This time, My Milk’s Not Working still used the Destroyer.

After the previous match, Shen Yanming thought that he had grasped some of My Milk’s Not Working’s tactics and prepared countermeasures.
However, to his surprise, My Milk’s Not Working employed a different strategy in this match.

The tank had a taunting skill that could redirect enemy units’ or monsters’ attacks towards themselves.

At the beginning of the match, My Milk’s Not Working didn’t appear directly in the center of the map.
Instead, he triggered random events all over the map, attracting a horde of monsters.
By the time he appeared before Little White Wolf with a group of large and small monsters, he was already in a near-death state.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: ?

Just a single basic attack from Little White Wolf could kill the Destroyer… or maybe these monsters could take care of the Destroyer without White Wolf doing anything.

However, before Little White Wolf could react, the Destroyer swiftly used a taunt skill, causing the swarm of monsters to pounce on Little White Wolf.

White Wolf was a squishy character without damage reduction skills.
They couldn’t withstand the attacks from so many monsters and quickly met their demise.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: …

My Milk’s Not Working won another match.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Wife, you have too many tricks up your sleeve.
I can’t handle it qoq

After typing this message, Shen Yanming leaned back and let out a sigh.

[My Milk’s Not Working]: Are you up for another round?

Shen Yanming straightened up.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Let’s go! A real man can go seven times in one night! Let’s continue!

[My Milk’s Not Working]: …

The two of them played several more matches, switching roles and characters.
This time, Shen Yanming didn’t get completely beaten, but winning was still a struggle.

However, it felt somewhat frustrating.

My Milk’s Not Working could excel in any position, had strong skills, and always came up with unexpected and dirty tricks that were hard to defend against.

No, was the TMM team really this insane? Even a second-rate healer like My Milk’s Not Working could defeat him?

Shen Yanming released his grip on the mouse and raised his hand to his eyes, taking a look.

Was it because he hadn’t undergone extensive training after his rebirth, so his game sense was fine, but his reaction speed couldn’t keep up?

There might be some reasons like that.

However, Shen Yanming still felt that something was off and he couldn’t pinpoint exactly what was wrong.

Even if he had become weaker, it shouldn’t be this pitiful.
Did he really underestimate My Milk’s Not Working to such an extent?

In his previous life, he spent the whole year training and competing.
He had faced many skilled players, but there were few who excelled in every position.

Kong was one of the few who could play everything but chose to stick with healer in competitive matches.
Some people even jokingly said that if Kong had the ability to split himself, he could form an invincible team on his own.

But My Milk’s Not Working turned out to be just as amazing.

Shen Yanming sighed once again.

He was indeed a bit frustrated, but his frustration mainly stemmed from himself—he felt like he had become somewhat inferior.

Regarding My Mik’s Not Working, rationally speaking, Shen Yanming genuinely admired him.

At this moment, he suppressed his own trivial frustration, and generously praised My Milk’s Not Working.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: My wife is so strong

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Are all the nannies in your TMM team monsters? Or is it that during training, you have to practice every position? That can’t be true, right?

[I’m Messing Around Again]: I’ve decided, I must practice more in private

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Next time, it’s my turn to hammer you

[I’m Messing Around Again]: But seriously, wife, I really admire you now o

He Changkong originally wanted to say that Shen Yanming wasn’t playing poorly, but he just played for a shorter amount of time.
Given enough time and practice, Shen Yanming could undoubtedly surpass him.

But upon seeing Shen Yanming’s message, he had an inexplicable thought.

As if controlled by some external force, he typed out a line.

[My Milk’s Not Working]: What about your Kong Shen?

Shen Yanming replied quickly.

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Huh? What are you thinking? Even if you’re amazing, the one I love will always be him.

As he spoke, Shen Yanming’s playful side suddenly emerged!

[I’m Messing Around Again]: You need to understand your place.
You’re just a substitute.
I call you my wife only because I see him through you!

[My Milk’s Not Working]: …

[I’m Messing Around Again]: Don’t use ellipsis.
When you use ellipsis, you’re not like him anymore.
