CJ Entus and Woongjin Stars are in a fierce race for their post season tickets, CJ beat KT Rolster getting a precious win. With two games remaining for CJ, they are in a better position than Woongjin which has only one game left. The main characters for today’s victory Snow, Horang2, and EffOrt says “We’re happy to contribute to our team win”, and made a resolution that “we’ll definitely win the rest of our games to enter the post season”.
Q. How long has it been since the three of you won together?
Snow – I feel like we’re one step closer to enter the Post Season, plus it has been a long time so I feel even better.
Horang2 – I stacked up many losses so I could not sleep well at night, I think I can sleep comfortably tonight. (laugh)
EffOrt – I’m happy we made it to the doorstep into the post season. If we go up we’ll definitely meet KT, I think I will be more confident next time.
Q. If you were to explain each of your games.
Snow – It was surprising/scary. (laugh) I’ve been owned by this strategy before but I did not predict it. In practice, I remember Horang2-hyung using it against me. After the practice game, Horang2-hyung told me how to beat it as well. I won today’s game because of Horang2-hyung. (laugh)
Horang2 – I don’t have memories of winning PvP. I wasn’t confident and Kim Dae Yeob(Stats) looked like a huge mountain. Especially since he’s been performing so well, I was nervous and playing it out, the spawning spots were good and I think I won because I played well. (laugh)
EffOrt – I had a clear build order advantage. My early attack was slightly pushed back, which surprised me, but I trusted that my skills would pull through.
Q. When you executed your timing rush against Stats, did you feel that you were going to win?
Horang2 – I felt it. Depending on the control there was a chance of blocking it, but I felt that Stats was nervous.
Q. You laughed at the end. Any special meaning?
Horang2 – This season I could not win against SKT1 and KT, plus I could never finish the last set for the win. With today’s win I broke that jinx. Today I feel awesome.
Q. You could have lost today.
Snow – In our past match against Woongjin I played in set 5 and lost. I made a resolution to win today.
Horang2 – There’s a saying that if you can’t avoid it, enjoy it. (laugh)
EffOrt – Like a saying 'in crisis, there’s a chance' I approached this game as my chance.
Q. This season people say CJ’s Protoss line is weak.
Horang2 – It’s correct. (laugh) We probably have to apologize. (laugh) I think it will be okay if we start performing well from now on.
Q. You’re battling Woongjin Stars for a post season ticket. Woongjin also won today.
Snow – Honestly I rooted for Team 8 to win. (laugh)
Horang2 – I think Shin Jae Wook (Flying) hyung always plays well in important games.
Q. Goals for remaining matches.
Snow – I will do my best to prepare.
Horang2 – For our next opponents, it’s the last games of their season. We will do our best to show good games for the audience.
EffOrt – Because our last matches have non-post season teams, we won’t think lightly of them. We won’t lose concentration, and will do our best.
Q. Your individual records, how do you want to end the season?
Snow – If I get the chance, I will win them all.
Horang2 – Now that I have 50% win rate, I want lucky number 7. 70% is the goal.
EffOrt – There are two matches left, with two more wins I want to end the season with 11 wins.
Q. Anything you would like to add.
Snow – The company, parents, and fans show lots of concern for us. We’ll definitely enter the post season… so wait for us.
Horang2 – After reading the fan letters to tell me to calm down and play well, I think that helped me get back on track. I’m thankful, and will do my best so they won’t worry more. Also my parents aren’t picking up my calls (laugh) I want to send them my regards. My older sisters are elusive as well. Is it because I’m bad lately… (laugh)
EffOrt – The company and coaching staff helps us to focus in our games, I want to thank them. Our fans’ cheers also give me lots of strength. Even though our team juniors don’t get to play, they help us a lot. I am thankful because it’s a harsh time. I will do my best to represent our juniors
