In the Ro4 match of the SPL Heart of the Swarm Special Match between TBLS and Masters, Bisu stepped up to clinch the final victory needed for the win.
How does it feel to help your team win?
I personally think that getting this first victory in Heart of the Swarm is a good start. It feels like I'll be able to play well in my next game too. I dragged my team down after losing the first game, but Coach Han still let me play in the fifth game. It was PvZ, which I am confident in, and so I was able to get a good result.
Your performance in the first game was still lacking in some areas. How much have you adapted to Heart of the Swarm?
If full marks is 100 marks, I can only give myself 50. I haven't been able to show my stuff yet in tournaments, and I also don't know if I'm playing well or playing badly. In Wings of Liberty, I was too noob, so fans probably don't have much expectations for me I guess. I am currently preparing seriously in order to have a different performance from before.
Hydra actually made his Hydralisks dance. Did you expect it?
I know, but it's been a long time since I played officially, and it really surprised me. I actually wanted to produce enough Templars, and then add in Tempests, but I rushed it a bit too much.
When did you start practising Heart of the Swarm?
1-2 weeks before the third round of SPL ended. Even though some pro-gamers have already started practising at that time, these weren't core players, and I didn't feel anything even if I beat them. When I play ladder recently, everyone's really good now (laughs).
Your record in the league is 1 win and 2 losses in the first half of the league. What's your goal for the second half?
My goal has never been set high. I always felt that if I could get 10 wins, I would have already been playing very well. I want to get the 10 wins first before talking more about it. I believe that there'll be better results in the future.
Fans are hoping for the revival of Bisu.
SPL aside, I also have to achieve good results in individual leagues. When I produce results in individual leagues, many fans become happy. I've forgotten for a long time how that feels. Tasting the joy during victory in individual leagues is something that happened so long ago. If I manage to make it into OSL or GSL Code S, I guess the fans would be really happy.
Your struggled a lot in Wings of Liberty.
An important reason is that I can't find the confidence that I used to have before. My results in ladder aren't good either. I am not confident in my own skills. But it feels like the change this time is huge. I think I might be able to walk out of the slump if I practise more, and so I'm currently working hard to practise.
When we talk about Bisu in Starcraft 1, the trademark units used would be Corsairs and Dark Templars. What's the trademark unit in Starcraft 2?
I like the Mothership Core. If the Oracle is used well it's pretty good too, but it has low life, and so it's a unit that makes me worry a lot. The Mothership Core can guaratee that you never get early game rushed. I tend to die to proxy barracks or 6 pool in the early game, and now I finally have a unit that can handle it, and that makes me much more comfortable. That's why I like the Mothership Core.
Anything else you wish to say?
Up to now I've always been playing with a very relaxed attitude. Tomorrow's the finals, and I need to play seriously. There should be some prize money to make it better. That'd allow people to be motivated wouldn't it? (laughs)
