After an arduous series of battle, you came out on top.
I’m very happy that I won, continuing the legend of the fall. Since I won this title, I will try my hardest in the future to show that I am champion-worthy
This was your first appearance in the final round, and you won it.
I got my confidence from the legend of the fall. Prior to the game, commentator Garimto came up to me and gave me words of support. I won my first OSL title in my first appearance in the OSL final, I am very happy. I will try my hardest to become an exceptional progamer.
Who do you want to thank the most?
My parents have always been supporting me. I am very glad that I replied to their unconditional support with my OSL title. I want to thank my parents, and thank my coach. My team-mates also gave me enormous support, as well as my relatives and friends, and of course, my fans.
Most difficult section of this OSL?
The semi final. I was under a lot of pressure facing against Oov. It was even more difficult than the matches against Boxer.
What did Boxer say to you after the games?
He said “good job” and congratulated me on my performance. He also asked my coach where he found such a good player.
You were winning, then Boxer came back.
Luckily, I adjusted my mental state. I treated it as our first match, so I was not overly nervous.
After Boxer came up to 2:2, it’s impossible to treat it like nothing happened….
After winning the first two matches, I was overjoyed because I could taste the title. After losing two consecutive matches, I returned to my original self.
You didn’t use DT in the last game.
I went with a regular strategy in the last game in case boxer goes with a Biochanic strategy (tank + mm), so I focussed on my strategy instead of Dark Templars.
When you realize that you won the title?
After seeing Boxer’s starport add-on and realizing that he was going wraiths, and after I killed them with Corsairs and Carriers, I knew I had won.
Team-mates and Firebathero from Khan. He was watching the games today, and I couldn’t even allocate a place for him to sit.
I heard that you strategy was top-secret today, you didn’t even tell your coach.
I didn’t tell anyone is because I wanted to keep the Final intense. About my coach… he was watching me practising the entire time, I don’t know where you heard that rumour from…
How are you going to spend your prize money?
I’ll treat my team-mates to a big meal, and I’ll give the rest to my parents.
What do you think of Boxer?
Boxer is of my most respected players. I want to play against him in the future again, over another important event.
How much did you practise?
For the entire year, I barely stepped outside of my dorm, it was practice and practice. I rarely stayed up late to practise, but it adds up.
Do you think yourself as a strategy-type or a macro-type of player?
I like to think myself as a macro-player. However, recently, Terran is too strong, it is impossible to win with macro alone. Therefore, I focussed on strategy against Oov, and tried to both macro and strategy against Boxer.
What do you want to do the most?
Rest. It has been very stressful and tiresome while preparing for today’s games. I want to rest a few days, not touching my computer.
Your goals for the year 2006
Same as all the other progamers – KeSPA #1. Therefore, I have to practise hard.
If you can advance into another OSL final, who do you want to face?
I want to play against Boxer again. Don’t we all say that Boxer is the representative of all progamers?
Who are you going to pick in the next OSL during the group selection?
I recall July saying, “I hope Anytime will pick me”, although I don’t know yet, I have taken a note of his words.
Are you confident in breaking the OSL curse?
Hopefully, I will try my hardest.
