What are your thoughts on being a part of the top 8 GSL?
Played against Dark today, but what I imagined was way different from the reality. It's really unfortunate. But I'm already one of the dominant top 8, so I will definitely prepare for the competition.
What kind of performance did you expect today?
I thought I could use my number one status to dominate. But seeing that MMA, a skilled player, didn't do so well during the round of 32, I just assumed he wasn't used to the Korean competition. But today he performed pretty well.
What do you think contributed to the loss during the winner's match?
During the first game, I used an opening that I never practiced for. Thus, after my opponent counterattacked, I pretty much lost all composure. During the game, I kept getting supply blocked, a mistake on my part. The mistakes from the first game carried over to the second game.
Yeah, but didn't you get the seed qualifications for the next season?
The first place winner from last season didn't do too well in the subsquent season. But since I get the seed qualifications for the next season, I feel extremely lucky. When the quaterfinals begins, all the matches will be played at the same time. No matter who dominates, I believe I can defeat him.
What's the lineup for Round 1 of SPL finals?
The lineup hasn't been announced yet. Also there's individual rounds that I still have to fight through. I'm thinking of practicing tomorrow. If I encounter Maru, I will win, helping my team get first place.
Anything else you want to say?
Round 1 of SPL finals isn't far away. Our team and Jinair are both strong teams, so this competition will be quite specatacular. Hopefully everyone will give us extra support.
