From Estro to Hwaseung, then from Hwaseung to STX, Dear has moved from team to team. Being posted [=traded] twice is a rarity, but Dear finally seems to have found a home at STX Soul. Dear, who always showed potential but never broke out, played a crucial role in putting a stop to STX's losing-streak, while showing much improved game-play as well.
Q This is your first win since moving. How does it feel.
A I promised myself that I would contribute to the team a lot, and it feels good to have played a role in our team's first victory. It feels twice as good as just winning. Our team is consistently rated as one of the weaker ones, and going on a 3-loss streak just seemed to reinforce that sentiment. I hope to keep winning so that people will stop viewing our team as a pushover.
Q Not a lot of progamers get to experience the posting process, while you were posted twice already. Thoughts?
A When I was on Estro, I was a rookie without many broadcasted matches, so it was okay, but I was actually doing well and contributing to the team when Hwaseung disbanded, so I was sad. While I was waiting to be posted, it was unclear which team would pick me up, so I was very nervous.
Q How did you feel after you got a call from STX.
A It was the team I wanted, so I was happy. STX has a strong Protoss line and I would be filling the void left by Kal's enlistment, so I would get a lot of chances to play. Coach Park is also known to be a great mentor, so I thought I would learn a lot on the team.
Q How have you been practicing since you joined STX.
A After joining, I practiced so much. I consider this my last chance, so I have been practicing day and night. STX isn't disbanding anytime soon, so if I do my best, I believe that I will eventually be able to join the greats of SC.
Q Your game play seems much improved.
A After joining STX, Coach Park has put in a lot of time teaching me one on one. Coach Park could hold his own against current progamers, so I am learning a lot.
Q Recently STX has been deemed an underdog.
A Internally, we are confident that STX's protoss line is strong, but a lot of us are rookies, so it is crucial that we adapt to the broadcasted environment quickly. If we do our best, the protoss line should be able to come in third or fourth.
Q Your goal this season.
A I want to contribute to our team. Every game counts in a bo5. I want to become a player that our coaching staff can rely on to bring home a win.
Q Any last words.
A I thank the coaching staff that has brought me onto the team and given me a chance to play. Also, my parents are always supporting me, and I want to thank them.
