Chapter 233 – Press Conference
In the afternoon, the official website of the Miracle Professional League released the lineup of the national team. They announced Li Cangyu as the captain, Ling Xuefeng as the vice-captain and the fact that the public selection for the national team would start in two days.
Apart from the two summoners filled by Li Cangyu and Ling Xuefeng, all other classes would be fairly selected. The netizens had no opinion on this. After all, other domestic summoners were no match for Ling Cat. They were also the captains of the championship and runner-up team. It was understandable that they would be on the national team.
However, there were many of Ling Xuefeng and Li Cangyu’s sunspots who weren’t satisfied. [The nice point about the lineup is that it is comprehensive. The bad point is that there is no distinctive characteristic!]
[There are two of every class. Why does the captain of the national team think this is a good idea?]
[Who set this up? Li Cangyu SB, Ling Xuefeng SB, the two of them are really a pair of SB!]
Li Cangyu saw this comment and couldn’t help smiling at Ling Xuefeng. “Look, they said we are a pair.”
Ling Xuefeng, “…”
Li Cangyu could selectively ignore the scolding words and extract the words ‘a pair’ in order to joke around. His heart was really big. Ling Xuefeng gently touched his shoulder. “The news has been announced so you will definitely be bombarded with reporters at the press conference.”
Li Cangyu smiled lightly. “What is there to be afraid of. In any case, you will be there and I will have company for the bombardment.”
Ling Xuefeng couldn’t help smiling at this.
Yes, no matter what happened, regardless of success of failure, they would face it together!
He had this person to walk beside him. Even if the road ahead was hard, they had the confidence to go down it together.
At the noon press conference, many reporters questioned the lineup of the national team. “This arrangement, don’t you feel there are too many remotes and too few melees?”
Ling Xuefeng replied, “No.”
Li Cangyu said, “I don’t think so.”
The two of them replied in unison and the reporters were a bit dazed.
The southerner who wasn’t clear about Li and Ling, smiled. “Cough, I actually wanted to ask Cat God. Sorry.”
Li Cangyu smiled. “It doesn’t matter. Xuefeng knows what I mean and answered the same as me.”
Ling Xuefeng nodded. “Yes.”
The reporters, “…”
Were they wearing the same pair of pants for the interview today?
A female reporter stood up and asked, “There are 22 people on the national team. Isn’t two healers too few? According to the six person arrangement of a team battle, shouldn’t there be at least four healers?”
Li Cangyu explained, “The national team isn’t necessarily a copy of a league match. Some team battles might not necessarily be played. Two healers are enough. If there are more outputs then we can freely change the lineup later.”
The female reporter could only sit down with a red face.
“I noticed that in the national team’s lineup, there are only two spots for a front row tank. The berserkers and paladins can play this role.” The reporter who stood up this time knew more about the game. “The paladins and berserkers will be given to these two places. Isn’t the name of spots for tank players too small?”
Ling Xuefeng replied calmly, “The team battle requires only one tank type. In the death racing competition mode, sometimes a pure output lineup is needed and we might have to abandon the front row meat shield. Having two tanks isn’t lacking.”
Li Cangyu added, “Yes, the World League’s new death racing mode is a speed game based on 10 heads. There is definitely a need for more output classes, which is why we chose a large number of output classes.”
Ling Xuefeng continued, “I have discussed all possible solutions with Cat. We finally set this comprehensive selection plan to minimize accidental factors.”
The reporters were stunned and couldn’t respond when he said ‘Cat.’
Everyone looked at Li Cangyu with complicated expressions and found that the latter was very calm. It seemed he was accustomed to this name…
A straightforward reporter directly asked, “Captain Ling, is that your special name for Cat God?”
“Ah, I’ve called him that for many years and have become used to it.” Ling Xuefeng’s expression was also very calm.
Li Cangyu smiled and said, “This is more amiable. You can rest assured that the national team’s captain and vice-captain have a good relationship and there will be no disagreements. Even if there are differences in opinions, we will discuss the solution. In the past, we have been called the strongest opponents. However, this time our goal is the same.”
Ling Xuefeng nodded. “Yes, we will do out best with the national team in the World Competition.”
Li Cangyu added, “Out netizens shouldn’t worry too much. Once the lineup is decided, we will have a period of intensive training. I believe that the strength of the China Miracle League players won’t disappoint anyone.”
Ling Xuefeng followed up, “If there are any questions about the national team, please ask.”
“…” The reporters looked stunned.
They suddenly felt that Vice-Captian Ling was ‘following his husband!’
The two great gods speaking in unison, was there anything else to say?
Finally, a reporter raised a relatively sharp question. “Captain Ling, you have always been the boss of the Wind Colour team and everything was decided by you. Now you are the vice-captain of the national team. Don’t you feel reluctant?”
Ling Xuefeng replied simply, “No.”
‘In my team, I have the final say. In the national team, my wife has the final say.’
Li Cangyu smiled. “The tactics of the national team is definitely something I will discuss with Xuefeng. The commander will also rotate. The captain and vice-captain positions are just in name and there is no need to be too tangled up in them. You only need to know that we will work together.”
Ling Xuefeng nodded. “Yes.”
In any case, Captain Ling always felt that Cat God’s words were right and Cat God always thought that Captain Ling was right.
Everyone felt that today’s interview gave off the illusion of two cats fitting together. They wore the same pair of pants for the interview, talked together and gave reasons that couldn’t be refuted. They were worthy of being the captain and vice-captain of the national team.
The many reporters felt that they were defeated…
