How do you feel about pulling your team through with three kills?
As the team's captain, I was scheduled to be sent out. I only practiced PvT for Antiga Shipyard, PvP and PvZ for Entombed Valley, and only PvZ for Neo Caldeum. I was flustered because every match up came to be true but I am glad because I was able to win. I approached Antiga Shipyard with the mentality that I would win no matter what. For the rest of the maps, I decided to just stick to the basics.
Were you feeling any pressure behind the fact that FanTaSy already had two kills?
On Antiga Shipyard, I had not lost to a Terran once during practice. I was confident.
On Neo Caldeum, you won because you had an army with superior upgrades.
The build order I used today was the first time I had ever showed that strategy on Neo Caldeum. I think a lot of people are going to replicate my build from here on out. It's a strategy where I can comfortably play my game regardless of my opponent's army composition. It's a good map for Zergs but I think I was able to win because of my build order.
It seemed like you weren't nervous today.
In the past, if I took some ChungShimHwan before the match then I could go on to win seven games in a row. I stopped taking CSH for a while but I wanted to win today so I took it. I was nervous but my games went well.
What are you prepared to face this season?
If I get greedy, I tend to lose a lot. I told myself that to just comfortably prepare for the season ahead. I won't worry about winning or losing. But it's true that I still get nervous.
What is the reason that Team 8 is the top team?
If we were still playing BW then we probably wouldn't have made much results. But SC2 is different. Before the season began, I expected Cure to take down Flash and to take the most wins award. Cure reminds me of Sea from the past. For SC2, our players really do well. We are top in ladder as well. As long as every player can hone their skills individually, then I think we're going to do really well. I'm not worried about our team. I think we'll be able to make it to the semi finals. Everyone is so good that I almost feel insignificant.
How is the team's atmosphere?
MajOr has a really brisk attitude. I have a lot of fun with him. I'm not really good with English so if there's ever something that I don't know MajOr just tells me to "Google it." He tells me to go to Google and to frequently use Google Translate. After having many conversations with him, I was able to pick up a lot of new words. MajOr is a loud person but he is really sincere. While it's true that MajOr has the potential to win, he is still behind the team. In order for him to get sent out, he still needs more time.
This season's goals?
Last season, I think I grabbed eighth place with my twelve wins. I would like to make it in to top five for this season but it's true that things are a little shabby right now. I am working hard everyday like I always do. I'm not really putting any focus on record right now.
Anything else you would like to say?
When I transitioned to SC2, MC, MarineKing, JYP, and Revival taught me a lot of things. I also got to know Creator through MarineKing and Creator taught me a lot of things as well. I was planning on saying all this if we had beaten Samsung KHAN last season but unfortunately, I had to wait until today to get the chance to say all this. Lastly, I want to thank Ryul2 and check for helping me out a lot on Neo Caldeum.
