You scored two kills as the ace, tell us your thoughts
It took longer than I expected for me to make an appearance in GSTL. I didn’t think I would be nervous but it was as bad as GSL. I am happy to have taken two wins for the team to advance to Round 2. I want to congratulate Cella for advancing to Round 2.
How does it feel to be the one cleaning up for your team? (T/N: previously, the question was: "This is the first case of a player from an allied team acting as the ace and winning." TiG fixed it after they realised Huk had already won as the ace for oGs-TL last year)
To be the one cleaning up with the team on the verge of defeat, I thought to myself “ah, this is how the teamleague is supposed to be”, it was truly electrifying. I am glad to be able to share the joy of victory with the teammates.
Were you planned as the ace?
No. I just thought I could win against Line who is a Zerg. Seeing the line up ZeNEX, there wasn’t a suitable Terran left. So, I believed that I could finish up.
How does it feel to be in GSTL after such a long time?
I think GSTL must be exciting for the fans and even for the players, there’s a different kind of fun to be had compared to an individual league. A team victory is something different to what you experience in an individual league.
EG could have participated as its own team, don’t you regret this?
The foreign players are not all in Korea and only a small number is coming over so participating as our own team would have been too difficult. Rather, teaming up with SlayerS works to our advantage. On top, when a foreign tournament is on at the same time, our players tend to leave Korea so it’s very difficult for us to be in GSTL as a team.
Your PvT is rather terrible with a 9% win rate.
Once upon a time, I was confident in my PvT but suffering loss after loss, I think I’ve developed some kind of traumatic disorder. My win rate in practice is okay so as long as I get over this, I should do fine.
Your PvZ, on the other hand, is excellent
I do want my PvZ to be better than that of any other Protoss (T/N: pfft, we’ll see what Hero has to say about that). Then, I won a bunch of PvZs and with that momentum, I am cruising along.
Did you not wish to take on Life?
I faced him once in February but he seems a lot better now compared to then. I did think taking him on would be fun. However, our team has many players who are good at vZ so another player would have sufficed. So, I wasn’t too disappointed about not being able to face him.
You have some time off now, how will you spend it?
I am currently studying for my high school certificate test. As a result, I have been practising a lot less but still did okay today. I want to thank Cella for sending me out despite my shortage of practice. I think I will have to use the time I have left to keep preparing for the exam.
Anything to add?
I keep hearing that my PvT is too weak out of the three matchups but I will soon overcome this. I hope you have faith in me and keep watching. We’re on a break until the end of the week and since I made it possible, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as they can.
