And Your Winner.... SKTelecom T1
March 3rd is a special day for Kim Taek Yong (Bisu). It's because it is the day of his very own March 3rd Revolution. The March 3rd match verse SKT sparked a lot of interest because there was expectation for Bisu to end his 3 game losing streak on March 3 (3/3).
And Bisu has succeeded in barely defeating JangBi to end his 3 game losing streak. After being victorious on his day, he takes a breath and says "I'm going to do everything I can to contribute to the team showing good results in the post season."
Q You won on March 3rd. How do you feel?
A I don't feel anything. Usually fans would be excited a week before but seems like no one is interested today (laughs). I don't feel anything different because there wasn't much inspiration.
Q You seem to play a lot on March 3rd
A It's weird. I do seem to play a lot on March 3rd and I also seem to play well and win [on March 3rd]. My first win in the 3rd round is on 3/3 but I feel like it's way too late. I started to feel so tense losing so much. And I believe I showed that in the game as well. My hands were so shaky that I couldn't micro. Although I admit I'm not that best (laughs). I did not like that game [because of the way I played].
Q You executed a 3 gateway strategy on 3/3. Intended?
A No it wasn't planned like that (laughs). Just felt like a 3-gate play was a good idea during practice. However, I feel sickeningly thankful to the number 3 today.
Q Lately you have been caught in many losing streaks.
A It seems like I've been distracted by many other thoughts. It wasn't a time where I could focus 100% on the game. I've been thinking about other things. I haven't really been paying attention to the contents of this season. Oddly, the games haven't been going my way. There are a lot of reasons but as I've grown older, I'm being thinking a lot about my military duties. [T/N: For those that don't know, korean male citizens are required to complete 22 months of military service.] Although I can still be considered young, a lot of struggles come with being a 24 year old progamer. And don't I need to get married? (laughs) Just kidding. Although it is my fault for not focusing on the game, if I challenged myself to give it my all for here on, I think I will survive.
Q BeSt seems to have improved in his zerg match up. If you were to evaluate?
A Although it wasn't me to helped, it seems BeSt has practiced a lot this season. The movement of his units has gotten a lot better. He sits next to me [in the practice room] and he really practiced hard. He used to lose a lot of corsairs so his confidence fell, but as you can see his corsair control is much better and I feel that's allowing him to play better.
Q A protoss just gave Flash his first loss.
A Firstly, it was a situation where KT had to lost so I cheered (laughs). But also, I feel Dear's build was nicely executed. Unfortunately, it was the cancelled turrets that caused Flash to lose the game. However, even if the turrets were built, the shuttle speed upgrade would have allowed for some damage to be done.
Q BeSt said that he focus fires scourge. What about you?
A I don't focus fire scourge separately. However, if there are mutalisks and scourge, I will take care of the scourge first.
Q Seems like you were looking for mistakes in today's game.
A My lack of focus was my mistake. Also, because I lost to Wooki during the match against KT, my confidence in PvP fell. Because my build wasn't that great, I think the game got dragged on. A unfortunately played game. Especially this season, my losses in PvP made me very angry. But now, I still have confidence in PvP.
Q You broke your losing streak during an important time for the team.
A Coach really enjoyed that (laughs). It's been over a month since my last victory so I just felt like I needed to win no matter what. I had such a strong feeling everyone was going to lose if I lost today. I'm just glad I ended my losing streak. I was so nervous in today's game.
Q You became #1 on the search engines.
A How shameful (laughs). Who knows if that would be the case if I performed well, but I think it's because it was such a disappointed performance so I'm quite ashamed. Honestly though, I am quite glad that so many people remember the day of my first place victory. Maybe it's an easy date to remember (laughs).
Q What do you think needs to happen for Bisu to be relieved of this stress?
A Either winning a Starleague or picking up a 100 Billion [won] (laughs). Realistically, picking up 100 Billion Won probably won't happen, but a Starleague Gold is possible, right? For Christ' Sake, I just want the OSL to start. It's a bit boring with only Proleague.
Q Any last words?
A I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart to my fans, teammates and the coaching staff for only coming up with losses recently. As I ended my losing streak here today, I want to continue to ride this momentum. Fortunately, I won on this meaningful day and happiness has replaced my nervousness. From now on, I will put my effort towards winning the games remaining.
