Nothing. He would die sooner or later anyway. No one killed Zhou Yu but himself.

This is a question about history (or the novel), so it doesn't belong in the video games forum.

Well, if he would have stopped worrying about Zhuge Liang, then he could have taken more of Jing, or even gone to war with Liu Bei at some point.

Shu-Wu interactions would be very different, that is certain. The chain of events from 219-223 would have probably not happened, leaving other unknown possibilities open. I still don't think he would have been able to change the course of Shu however.

Wu would have probably recieved a much more stable defense with Zhou Yu's strategies later on.
That is the only thing I dislike about Zhou Yu, his jealousy got the better of him. :x

Perhaps, but it would have left the Wu Territory open to invasion.

By whom? And maybe Zhou Yu's Two Kingdoms plan might've worked, but there is no guarantee that it would have.

Wei would have had the perfect opportunity to invade, with most of Wu's efforts in Jing and Yi.
