Ravaging Times

chapter 116

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

“Military Strategy of Water Mirror”: commanders of armies should raid high and attack low, go forward and strike from behind.
/* not sure */

It is viewed as the perfect formation!

{flag reads: Chen}
{higher ground}

[?]: We caught up with them! They’re Cao Cao’s troop that’s heading for Chenliu!

[?]: Advisor Chen, should we ride down to attack them?

chapter 116 The Perfect Formation

[Chen Gong]: We’re on high grounds. If we head down, we might just clash with the horses’ butt!
[captain]: True, we don’t have any advantage against their tightly packed formation.

[CG]: Send word! Go around and ambush them at the woods in the valley up ahead!

This is “raid from up high.”
/* not sure */

[?]: Report! Chen Gong’s troop is going around us!
{lower ground}

[?]: They’re heading for the woods in the valley not far from here.

[?]: The outcome of this battle will be determined at the woods in the valley up ahead. To deal with Chen Gong…

[Xun Yu]: Shoo.
Only arrows will work!

This is “attack from down below.”

{Puyang . north gate}

[?]: The enemy is coming! Their vanguard troop is the cavalry!

[?]: Break the enemy line! Open the gate for our Lord!

{shouting: kill~}

Go forward and strike from behind.

The cavalry is followed by the infantry. A good formation.
Come, you descendent of a famous General.

{shouting: kill~}

[Liaoyuan Huo]: They’re here.

[LYH]: Lord Cao, your reinforcements are here.

[Lv Bu]: So that means, the troop heading for the west city… arrived early than expected.

[LB]: But none of it matters, because the ones fated to die will die!

[Cao Cao]: You mean… you lured them here on purpose?

[LB]: Can’t you see? The me today is not the me yesterday. Whoever comes dies.

[LYH]: So you don’t mind us ganging up on you?
[Guo Ang]: Don’t worry, Lv Bu has always been generous.

[LB]: Then let’s see whose head shall roll first!

[LYH]: No, I want to see whose formation is the better one!

[captain]: Look, it’s Cao Cao!

[captain]: Ge… General Lv is there too, but… who are those three?



Strike high…

Attack low!

This is…
{sfx: pa~}

the Military Strategy of Water Mirror!?

[GA]: Go forward!

{sfx: peng~}

Attack from behind!

[LB]: Good strategy!

{sfx: peng~}

[LB]: Good! My turn…

[LB]: Strike high!

[Zhang Lei]: I have one too,

{sfx: ta~}

[ZL]: Attack low.
{sfx: pa~}

This technique is a hundred times more powerful than last time, because…

there is a main pivot!
[LYH]: Strike high.

{sfx: pa~}

Attack low?

No! It’s high again!

{sfx: peng~}

[GA]: Attack low!


{sfx: peng~}

Even Lv Bu… can’t stand their attacks.

These three men…

[LYH]: Please wait just a moment longer, lord Cao.

This is the first time I have heard something being said so casually on the battlefield.
The fight between these four is like a battle amongst ten thousand men,

as well as a session of war game played by military advisors.

The intense struggle,

contains a battle of wits too.

This is a microscopic war.
/* “condensed”, “compressed” */

Strike high!

This battle is more powerful than ten thousand soldiers;
[LYH]: Attack low.

more galloping than ten thousand horses!
/* not sure */

[ZL]: Strike high!

{sfx: pa!}
But there are men who can take on ten thousand enemies,

[LB]: Strike high.

and there is God of War!

{sfx: cha~}

{shouting: kill~}

A God of War who has no regard for life!

[LYH]: Go forward.

[LB]: I will strike from behind!

[GA]: Strike from behind.

Only use…


{sfx: pa~}

Perfect version!

Within the perfect formation, there is also… the perfect strategy.
