“躺” means to “lie down,” and “赢” means to “win.” This term, first used by players of the popular online game “League of Legends,” literally means “One wins a game by doing nothing at all and just lying down on the floor.” Given that “League of Legends” is actually a highly combative game, winning it by doing nothing can be a sheer miracle. Therefore, this term means “winning by sheer luck” and is often used sarcastically. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo was said to “win by lying down” when Portugal won Euro 2016 after he left the pitch because of injury 25 minutes into the final game.

One of my classmates is very lucky. He doesn’t work hard but always comes first in exams.

It’s just that you didn’t see his efforts. Never believe in such stories where people can win by doing nothing at all.
