Thoughts on your first AK as a progamer?
I'm deeply moved. My condition isn't good, and in tough situations I tend to get tired. I'd never thought that I'd be able to all-kill. I think right now, whether I'm clapping with my teammates or doing interviews, I'm still a little reticent. I need to get more familiar with it.
It's also hite's first AK.
The last PvP was the biggest obstacle. My winning rate in televised PvP is low, so being able to overcome that barrier and finish the all-kill was just success coming naturally from the conditions.
You were in trouble for a while in your game against Hyun.
Since I had enough troops, I didn't think I was at a disadvantage. Before, I had limitless self-confidence in my PvZ, but my winrate dropped, so I became timid. I think today I recovered that self-confidence (haha).
Your shuttle pressure did terrible, terrible damage to Saint.
I didn't actually prepare for this set, it was an impromptu choice of strategy. The spawn positions were favorable, so that using dropship play would be effective. It wasn't the same as against Sea. After game 2, I felt like my hands had loosened up completely.
In R3, Hydra was very strong, and he also earned an MSL title. Did that provoke you to try harder?
Seeing Hydra perform so well in SPL did leave a deep impact on me. And the other members of the younger generation were also very outstanding; they contributed greatly to Hite keeping its standing. And seeing Hydra make headlines after winning the MSL, I suddenly felt like my own individual league runs were regrettable. I thought back to how I was 1 year ago. But I'm not dead yet, and I'm still working hard, so I'll be fine. Right now, Hydra's fallen into a losing streak, he seems to be be personally weighed down. I hope he doesn't feel so burdened and meets his opponents with vigor.
Hite's facing Woongjin next. Do you think you can AK again?
Whenever I'm sent out, my one and only goal is to end the series with my own two hands. Even if it's not an AK, I hope that if my turn comes, I'll shut the opponent down.
I don't have much else to say, but I do hope the fans don't forget about me.
