- Thoughts on qualifying for MSL?
▲ I qualified 2-0, but I'm still abit too excited and don't know what to think. The first major tournament that I qualified for was the MSL, it reminded me that.
- Did you think you would advance 2-0?
▲ I didn't think it would be this easy, I expected it to be very tough. I seem to have gotten out of the water lately (laugh), it feels like I'm in "god mode" now. Lately even I think I have been playing unnervingly well.
- How did you practice?
▲ Mostly focus on PvZ, because I'm not good at it and I have a reputation for being a PvZ noob, so I mostly prepared for the first set. The result turned out quite well, I played like I'm out of the water.
- There are alot of protoss qualified for the MSL, this should favor you.
▲ Actually I don't like playing PvP, because alot of chance are involved.
- You said you mainly practiced for PvZ, does that mean you are confident in your PvP and PvT?
▲ It wasn't so much confidence, but strategically well prepared, so I can play comfortably. I played with Paralyze alot online, he played really well. I know Paralyze plays a very solid style, so when I prepared I did not treat him as a rookie, but some one who are my equal or better.
- Your dragoon micro were exceptional today.
▲ I've already mentioned earlier, I seem like I just got out of the water (laugh). Also, my practice partner Snow's control is really amazing, he made me realise the importance of microing so I worked really hard on it. Snow really is a powerhouse in microing.
- It's been a long time since you last attend MSL selection ceremony.
▲ I kind of half looking forward to it and half feeling pressured. If more of my teammates qualified then I would be alot more comfortable, and if not many made it I would be pretty bored. But then Hydra is the defending champion afterall, he'll definitely help me out. I believe in you, Hydra! (laugh)
- Who did you want to play against in MSL?
▲ I don't know right now, we'll see when that day comes.
- Any last words?
▲ I want to thank the everyone who helped me practice. Recently I heard fans said my potential has exploded and it really did turn out that way. I will repay them with even better performance from now on.
- Thoughts on qualifying for MSl?
▲ Lately I've been on alot losing streaks and I was very depressed. Regardless of where I am in the individual league, it just seem like the games are really hard.
- Is the SWL format difficult for you.
▲ Although there are many reasons, but I think maybe I was too overconfident when I'm in a winning streak. I'm getting losing streaks even when it's not SWL games.
- Your results in both SPL and individual leagues seem to fluctuate alot.
▲ When I'm winning alot I can maintain my form, but I'm very simple minded, I will work hard when I'm playing well, but once I start losing I give up too easily. Right now I really need to change this.
- You lost to Horang2.
▲ I was too ambitious with my build. Horang2 is very strong in mind games. I've played mind games before but his play style was completely not what I expected. So I thought to myself. 'Ahh, I'm still not nearly good enough'. After that game I kept thinking, if I don't play the mind game and just play my usual way, would the result be different? (laugh)
- You played your own style in the loser game.
▲ After the second set I found out my opponent is a terran, and it was HiyA hyung who are recently in good form, so he is a very difficult opponent. But I was surprisingly lucky, I went for a ling rush and won.
- The MSL don't have alot of terrans right now, so it should be a good thing for you.
▲ I really want to play ZvZ. Even when I was playing badly I'm always very confident in my ZvZ, so I have high hopes for this MSL. Though I still hope the terran players will slowly manage to qualify.
- Today's victory should be able to make you play better in SWL.
▲ I always have my own kind of pattern, I hope to end my losing streak during MSL and play better games. Because my team is not doing too well, I must work hard to make my contribution to the team.
- Any last words?
▲ My friends, family and fans are pretty worried about me. The losing streak will not keep me down, so I hope everyone are not too worried about me, since I'll always be looking to win again. Even if I do lost again there is no need to worry, I hope everyone will continue to support me.
