Charlatan: Today’s topic: Team Happy and Dancing Rain
There’s a video on Bilibili(like YouTube yet more interesting cuz you can send bullet screen watching the video), showing Chinese fans how names in TKA get translated into English. Team “Happy” honourably received gales of laughter—loads of “hahahaha”/“LOL” full-covered the screen. The original name is 兴欣[xīng xīn]
It has two sources, one for 兴[xīng], another for 欣[xīn]:
1.欣[xīn] the set phrase(chinese idiom) 欣欣向荣[xīn xīn xiàng róng]【lushly growing of plants/toward/luxuriant grow luxuriantly】
There was a fan sub translating it as Team Thriving. I think this one’s better.
2.兴[xīng] another set phrase星火燎原[xīng huǒ liáo yuán]【A single spark could start a prairie fire.】
And don’t forget to check the emblem of Happy, and compare it with 兴, the first ideogram of the team name in Chinese. You’ll find where this design comes from.
I really can’t figure out why they picked “Happy”. Butterfly Blue has embedded much things as well as wishes in the names he gave. “Happy” is too plain.
btw, Steamed Bun’s name is 荣兴, 荣in欣欣向荣[xīn xīn xiàng róng](the last ideogram),兴in兴欣[xīng xīn](the first ideogram),maybe it’s his destiny to join 兴欣[xīng xīn]🤣

Let’s move on to the character of 苏沐橙Sū Mù Chéng—Dangcing Rain.
沐雨橙风[mù yǔ chéng fēng]
Now you see her name is inlayed in her game ID(the first and the third ideogram)as introduced in Chapter 617.
Also this one has two sources.
1.the first part,沐雨[mù yǔ]comes from a set phrase沐雨栉风[mù yǔ zhì fēng],means “be bathed in the rain and be combed by the wind”. It is used to describe 大禹[Dà Yǔ], a hero who worked very hard regardless of the weather to managed to control the flood in Chinese mythology. He tried a different approach to the project of flood control, which in the end having achieved success, earned him renown throughout Chinese history, in which the Gun-Yu Great Flood is commonly referred to as "Great Yu Controls the Waters”. Now he’s already demigod in China.

2.the second part,橙风[chéng fēng]comes from 乘风破浪[chéng fēng pò làng](橙and乘are homophones[chéng], the author used pun), it means “ride the winds and break the waves”.
this idiom is cut from the third verse of a poetry of Tang Dynasty:
Hard is the way, hard is the way.
Roads go astray! Whither today.
A time will come to ride the wind and cleave the waves,
I'll set my cloudlike sail to cross the sea which raves.
thus, a faithful translation for 沐雨橙风[mù yǔ chéng fēng]can not be realised within few words.

“Happy”and “Dancing Rain”? emmm…..well, they’re easy to remember at least.

P.S.For the next time which names do you want me to dig? Just tell me and I’ll prepare.

Thormented: Man, the new format for Glory should include larger battles, it would be a pity if Ye Xiu doesn't get to demonstrate his ability to control so many players considering how hectic this battle is turning out to be.

Behemothsroar: Wei Chen’s struggle is probably the most emotional part of this novel. Unlike Ye Xiu’s silent suffering for glory, Wei Chen’s bitterness is extremely apparent and his personality and actions reflect that bitterness very well. All in all, I have always been impressed with the realistic personalities of the important characters.

Technothepig: honestly there's very little reason for chen guo to be the boss since probably any team would hire him but whatever :p (even if he cant join the pro league yet, imagine if he went to team blue rain and helped blue river for a year lol)
