SKT1 defeated CJ Entus 3-1 in Round 3 Week 1 of Proleague. Soo, Best, and Sun each cut their 2 game, 3 game, and 5 game losing streaks, respectively.
Your feelings on stopping losing streaks.
Best – I feel good that I was able to stop my losing streak and play a fun game at the same time. There were several dangerous moments but because I was able to overcome them, it was a more memorable game.
soO – I’m happy that we all got to cut our losing streaks at the same time.
Sun – It was really hard to deal with a losing streak. Our team lost every time I lost so I approached each game with a lot of responsibility. Getting advice from our team hyungs was really helpful and seeing my teammates stop their own losing streaks encouraged me a lot.
Why do you think you had been slumping?
Best – I kept losing to Terran and Protoss players. I played well during practice and then lost every time I went on broadcast. I’m always either on a winning streak or a losing streak so I hope I can go on a winning streak now that I stopped my losing one.
soO – I sometimes won because luck often made up for my lack of some skill but I didn’t get lucky for a while. I think I won today because I practiced a lot.
Sun – I think that there are times when you win and also times when you lose. I barely practiced my PvP for today so I think today was a day that just worked out (laughs).
Your team has two wins left until you have 200 victories.
Best – It helps remind me how strong our team is and when we have 300 wins I hope I am still here. I hope we are the first team to reach 300 wins.
soO – I didn’t know that we had come this far. I want to continue winning rather than place a lot of meaning on it.
Sun – I hope we can be the first to hit 400 wins and I'm planning on still being around until then (laughs).
SKT1 has had strong performances against CJ.
Best – It’s very strange that I’ve always had the better builds when I played CJ. I think I was able to win because I went into the game with an upper hand.
Sun – I think we won because our team is good (T/N: Yes we know that too captain obvious).
Your next opponent is KT. Do you think you will be able to continue your winning streak?
Best – We have to beat KT in order to have a shot at first place. I want to win no matter what. If I am sent out, I’d like to play against Zerg. I hope I can meet Action. I have never played against him yet.
soO – I lost all the games I played against KT (laughs). Even though our team won those times. If I get to play against them I will win. I hope I can meet a Zerg player.
Sun – I will win regardless of who I play.
Any last words?
Best – A lot of our fans came to root for us so I feel really good that I was able to win in front of them. I want to say happy birthday for Yoo-sung hyung and I am happy that soO and Sun were able to stop their losing streaks at the same time. I also want to give my mother a nice present.
soO – SIN mentioned me in his interview and I want to accept his request of going to see our old high school teachers together (T/N: SIN and soO are high school alumni). I feel good that the players who were on a losing streak all stopped them today.
Sun – I really wanted to do an interview on broadcast. I won today but didn’t get to do it. I really want to do one when I win again. Also, people from our company paid a lot of attention to me after my surgery so I’d like to thank them all.
