Swedish interview between Rakaka and Naniwa at the DH invitational.
Interviewer: We're standing here with Naniwa who isn't part of this tournament, how long have you been here for?
Naniwa: Since this morning.
I: Have you seen any games?
I: Which mach was most interesting?
N: Uhm, Whitera against Sjow was pretty interesting.
I: How does it feel to not be playing now when you're still so hot. (26-2 in MLG last week if you missed it)
N: Yeah I would really like to play, I think I'd be able to perform better than some but.. Shit happens I guess.
I: There are no Swedes in the finals but we have MC vs Whitera, 2 protoss, who's the strongest? Is it easily MC?
N: Yes. If Whitera doesn't mindgame MC, MC will win.
I: There's been a lot of talk about this, we've talked to both HuK and Idra, Jinro, MC himself, Protoss - is the race overpowered?
N: Well the thing is, MC wins everything but that's just 1 player, Whitera hasn't won any big tournament ever as far as I know but both are obviously big names. HuK got knocked out in round 1 so I don't think it's fair to say it's imbalanced.
I: Nah, Idra was complaining that force fields make the game so simple for Protoss because they can split armies and block armies..
N: Uhm, I don't think anyone can say that yet, the game is still very new, even if that's easy to forget. At least when I play I feel like there's a lot I could improve and I just think it's unfair to complain about imbalances all the time..
I: Yeah there are a lot of people saying that it's a young game and it'll take a long time, how long do you think it'll take until a stable level is found where everyone can say they were playing under the same conditions?
N: Uhm, for example when I played WC3 it took about 5 years for some tactics to emerge so I don't think we should judge for another 2-3 years at least.
I: Yeah if we look at the future which events are you confirmed for?
N: I'm hoping DH summer, uhm, in two days I'm going to gadgetshow in England, then CPH games, then MLG Colombus, then I guess it's the finals of MLG. So I guess that's what I'm certain of so far.
I: You're playing in Rakakas tournament for a spot in Korea, is Korea a possible home for you in the future, would you like to play in the GSL or would you rather move around in the West?
N: Nah my goal is to be the best and I think Korea is the best way to become the best so to speak. If I can get there and get a chance at code A or code S I'll take it.
I: You say Korea's best in the world, many people are saying the West is catching up, some players announced a gaminghouse today here in Stockholm, that was your teammates Bischu and Sjow if I remember correctly..
N: Yeah, Sjow, Bischu, TLO, someone else I think..
I: Why aren't you part of that?
N: TLO doesn't like me, apparently.. I don't know what to say about that..
I: Really? thats.. So TLO doesn't like you?
N: That's what I've heard at least. That's all I know, I think he said I was bad PR, I understand him but...
I: Uhm, are there any other plans for something similiar for you and some others?
N: There aren't that many others in Sweden, I mean it's Sjow, Morrow, right Morrow too, that's the Swedish elite.. Except for Jinro and Haypro so... There isn't that much I can do.
I: Right so it's almost starting in there, (finals) any closing words for the fans?
N: Yeah.. Thanks to everyone that's supporting me, even if you aren't that many I really appreciate it all.
I: Thanks for the interview.
