Iirc thunder snipe is a sharpshooter skill so it should be max skilled for ZZ, it just needed a Sniper Rifle to use the skill like how a knight need a shield to use the skill Charge. View More

ErikLiu: But isn't Sniper Snipe a skill which was added on to the rifle? That would mean it would only be at level 1. It honestly shouldn't be so powerful in this fight.

Well if Steamed Bun play Glory at a younger age (let's say 18 or so), I would say he would be the next Magician or a literal RNG (Random Nonsensical God) with his erratic and 4D chess line of thinking and never ending bricks.

Also regarding a sequel BB has said that he would much prefer to leave the future of the novel world up to its reader, akin to Star Wars Expanded Universe for a lack of better term. He instead made a prequel novel that I think has already been finished but yet to be translated to English named "Top Glory".

Fingers crossed that after this novel's translation end Nomyummi and team will take on the prequel novel translation. View More

rad7141: You got a good point. Steamed Bun may become a godlike player. But it would be a very long way to go.

After all, randomness isn't reliable (they're actually almost opposites) and it can ONLY become a weapon when SBI has huge experience to serve as its bullets.

Take a second and imagine what it's like to fight an experienced Steamed Bun. Actually nevermind, no one could possibly imagine that.

Finally, I believe Steamed Bun's path is one that is not commonly taken. His growth, his career, will also be as random and unpredictable as his playstyle.

That being said, we can only hope for a sequel.

antiQu: As much as I hate to use this buzzword unironically he's a classic example of "subverting your expectation". Just like in real life not everyone has a lifechanging experience and as such they pretty much stay the same throughout their life. It might seems boring but that's pretty much 90% of everyone irl, and the author BB loves to use real world examples and as such used it in his novel to overturn lots of cliches that you usually see in gaming novels and isekai.

For example Ye Xiu's lack of love interest unless you count the game Glory as one and Ye Xiu's one sided rivalry with HWQ (he even called HWQ obsessed for not getting over him, I forgot which chapter). There is also Sun Xiang and Tao Xuan's redemption arc sorta.

So Steamed Bun not having any meaningful character arc could be said as a subverted expectation towards us reader who expect him to somehow become less random and more consistent. And beside a good story need to have its share of Jester, and Steamed Bun did his job marvelously. He will always be the funniest character for me and I think him not having any change is the best thing BB could do with his character.

Evg: What I meant is that every happy character has a development story:
YX - we all know
TR - 1v3, from stubborn to smart team player
WC - love for the game, last chance to get championship
QY - from nobody second guessing himself to outstanding confident player
MF - silent stubborn loner to a bit more communicating player, keeps improving his limitations.
FR - change of class, return to godhood, relationship with criminal partner.
AW - from normal player to decent pro player, can withstand critic, gain confidence and recognition.
LJ - from lame player to almost master tactician level.
And when you compare this to Steamed Bun. He started as very random, simple-minded and funny player and finished pretty much the same.

The King's Avatar · C1722

Playing devils advocate here, the damage and low cooldown of the Snipe could be influenced from his probably Silver Sniper Rifle and other equipment. And seeing how Happy only have pseudosilvers as equips those damage are kinda understandable.

Though the most probable explanation is probably an easy way to up the stake and gives us Steamed Bun's heroic sacrifice. View More

DannySunny: Really? This sniper skill was used 4 times in less than 10 mins. 33% hp per shot? It took a full combo to do less than 30% in most of these fights.

antiQu: Ye Xiu noted that while Steamed Bun has the necessary "randomness" and APM to potentially be the next Magician, he ultimately start playing Glory way too late (idk the exact age Steamed Bun is when he met Ye Xiu but I would say it's close to 23ish), while Wang Jiexi starts Glory from his rookie years in the training camp followed by his smashing debut on season 3. So comparatively Steamed Bun is in no way close to Wang Jiexi.

Also his incomprehensible logic sort of made his play erratic and inconsistency, combined with his personality made him the comedic relief character, though doesn't mean that he's any less important than other character like say Tang Rou.

Evg: I feel Steamed Bun character development is somewhat missed opportunity. He was named as potential Lord Grim's account inheritor by Wei Chen in chapter 618. He also was compared to the Magician (can someone help me find this chapter?) in his unpredictable style. But after all that he was missing in action whole season and mostly used as a comic relief.

Someone needs to make a game like Football Manager but using Glory and its pro league as it's basis. We can make our own team or manage existing ones and try to do a full season with them. Hope someone somewhere would make this a reality. View More

Jofrie: Hello fellow TKA fans. If you can create your own team to play in the League with all the pro players who would it be.
Choose only 6 players and say who will sub in for the team competition

RULES ARE:
1.You can only pick 2 players from 1 team(can't pick all from happy but you can take yx and smc together for duos)
2.There needs to be at least 1 rookie in the team(Liu Hao can be a rookie substitute)
3.There can only be 1 master tactician on your team.
4.You have to name your team
5.Can only pick a maximum of 3 all star or ex all star.


p.s. I just wanna talk to you fellow fans :(
its gonna be sad when it's all over.

Charlatan: If you are REALLY curious about the meanings of character names, read below. Might be a little LONG. No spoiler.

First of all, we should know that Chinese is a tonal language, while English assigns stress to one syllable of every word. Tone is one of the distinctive features of standard Chinese(Mandarin). If we neglect the four tones in the transcription of Chinese names, we may lose/misunderstand informations, sometimes are quite important. Just look at these names: Chén Guǒ(Boss), Wèi Chēn(God of shamelessness), and Wǔ Chén(Captain of Team Everlasting). We’ve got three “Chen”s here but they don’t share the same tone. Yep, there are still two of them alike, but if we write them down in ideogram, you’ll see that they are completely different(of course their meaning varies). Now we’re at around Chapter 800, as a Chinese fan who has run through the whole novel four times, if you already find it hard remembering Chinese names, well, keep working, cuz still loads of new names ahead.
I mentioned this point just because I saw a comment saying their names are similar. In fact, not at all😂.

Second, Chinese is a high-density language, it means it carries more information per syllable than English, besides, Chinese has an enormous amount of so called set phrases(Chinese idioms) which are in general consist of only 4 ideograms each, but can tell a whole story!(that’s an insane information density). For the fluency of reading, it’s not possible to translate their names accurately. The translator has had to trim.

Butterfly Blu is a vey talented writer, his works are written with much literary skill, as well as naming. We know that names can convey something, and almost every author would use this technic. For instance, in the Beggar’s Opera of John Gay, we have Lockit, Macheath, Peachum, etc. Without knowing the meaning of the names, it will definitely be a great loss.

So, enough talk, let’s get started.

[1] 叶修[Yè Xiū], MC
叶秋[Yè Qiū], the younger brother
In Asian culture, if we are brothers, our names are usually some how similar, as if to demonstrate that we are brothers. It’s kinda like the rhetorical figure anaphora😄

another example will be more obvious:
苏沐橙[Sū Mù Chéng]
苏沐秋[Sū Mù Qiū]
(Sū is their family name, not Sū Mù.)

They doesn’t need to rhyme, but “anaphora”.

Here we can see 叶秋 and 苏沐秋 have a character in common—the last character [Qiū], means autumn. This is merely a coincidence.But in the case of “One Autumn Leaf” is not.

*I’ll write word-for-word translation between【】

一叶之秋[yí yè zhī qiū]【One Leaf ’s Autumn】
The second and the last character are exactly the name of Yè Qiū. Or, it might be a combination of Yè Xiū and Sū Mù Qiū.
We know that it’s Sū Mù Chéng who picked this name for YX. She knows YX’s real name from the very beginning, so maybe she wished that they could fight together in the Glory.

And, “One Autumn Leaf” is a mistranslation, cuz the literal translation should be “The autumn of one leaf”, “one leaf” is actually an attribute of the word “autumn”. We shift the order, and the artistic conception changes.
P.S.Chinese is an isolating(analytic) language, means it plays with word order, and lacks inflections in morphology. That’s one of the reasons why it has such a high information density.

BUT! When Sū Mù Chéng picked this name, she made a typing error. She wanted to type “一叶知秋”[yí yè zhī qiū],the pronunciation is exactly the same as “一叶之秋”[yí yè zhī qiū], but you already found that the third character has changed. The third character “知” here means “know, foresee”, so the whole meaning changed completely, because “One Leaf ’s Autumn” is a noun phrase whilst the one with “know” is a sentence which means “From a falling leave we can tell this year/my life(here’s a pun) is coming to an end.” 【One leaf heralds autumn】This is precisely the set-phrase I mentioned above.

Sū Mù Chéng preferred a poetic name, but her fingers slipped. So here we have 【One Leaf ’s Autumn】instead of 【One leaf heralds autumn】. Sad story.

What about “Lord Grim”? Another mistranslation!
君莫笑[jūn mò xiào]【you don’t laugh】
“Lord” in this context is the second person imperative when you address sb in a very respect way, kinda like “my lord” in English, but a little different. The sentence means “please don’t laugh”. It comes from a verse of a poetry of Tang Dynasty. The whole poetry is:
(There are two translating versions)
Version One:
Grapewine I would like to taste,
have to go yet I would crave.
Thou dost not tease drunk soldiers of all,
Long ago few come back from war.

Version Two:
Exquisite wine in cups that glitter at night,
The pipa(a Chinese instrument) playing on horseback urges us to drink.
Laugh not if we lie drunk on the battlefield.
Since ancient times how many have ever returned from campaigns afar?

So “君莫笑[jūn mò xiào]【you don’t laugh】”are the last three words of the third verse. What the hell is “Lord Grim”?😂

When we see this name, we can perceive the solemn and stirring shadings, when YX just got kicked out of EE then bring out a Card with this name. And thinking about the pro league is just like a battle field, only very few of the players could enter the pro circle and those who win the cup are even fewer.

Nevertheless, we can not ask more, cuz as the translator of the Anime of TKA said, it’s a pity that we cannot make subtitles very much “faithful”, the cross-culture translation is so hard. I bet some of you has already blamed that the English subtitles just flying through the screen and you can not catch up with them.

If anyone is interested in the true meaning of their names(not only for characters but also the names of guilds are so beautiful), please give me a thumb or reply in the comment, to let me know if it’s worthy to continue.

btw, My major is foreign languages and literature. I major in German and live in Italy currently. So please forgive my low Englisch level.😂
