Q: This is your first ever finals in your esports career.
A: Besides advancing to the finals, i am more pleased with the competitiveness i have shown in the games today and that's why i am very happy.
This is the happiest day in my career.
Q: How did you prepare for today's Semi-final.
A: As soon as i saw the order of the maps, i had an idea on all the builds and strategies i could use.
When i reached the venue today, Neeb and Super practiced with me, but i was thinking about the builds i had in mind. These builds worked out very well in today's games.
Q: In the first game, you went for a 3-racks opener.
A: I have always had a more stable playstyle so i thought i had to mix it up today. I tried to get into my opponent's head by blocking off with supply depots which was what TY did to Dear as well.
Unfortunately, Dear still managed to scout it out from another direction which made me feel like this was not going to work out. Actually i still had the advantage but it was a pity that i lost 2 medivacs.
Q: For the rest of the games, your play was very impressive.
A: I prepared a lot for the second game. I was planning to use hellbats and widow mine drops. After watching Dear's vods, i was thinking using cloaked banshees would be a good idea and i was correct.
I am really very pleased with how the Semi-final went. Being able to edge out in mind games makes me very happy.
Q: You have created history by being the first ever teamless player to advance to a final.
A: I have no idea why my results are so good, but i really do practice a lot. I don't really have a specific playstyle so it allows me to play against different players.
Besides that, i have also gotten used to playing offline, so the results have come with it.
Q: After winning game 5, you were absolutely delighted.
A: I really couldn't believe it. Whenever i am able to win, i would be very happy. Since i was overwhelmed today, it also shows that i was truely very happy.
Q: You did not play in any offline tournaments for almost 2 years. Do you regret it now?
A: I did play in some tournaments in HOTS, but i was not able to do well. When LOTV came out, even though i was not confident, i told myself if i continued to rest, there was no way i would be able to win anything.
I won the first offline/lan (not very clear) event i took part in and it was a huge morale booster.
Q: The finals would be the first time you play on a stage outside of the studio.
A: I don't really care about the stage but i really do not like playing in the small booth. We did play against each other in the ro16 but sOs's playstyle is too unique, so this will be a tough match.
No matter how i change, my playstyle is roughly the same.
Q: How do you feel your final with sOs is going to turn out?
A: I lost to him in IEM Taipei but i did beat him in the group stages of GSL. Normally i would be satisfied if i have played well but i really do not want to lose this time.
Q: Anything else you wish to say?
A: I am very grateful to Jim and Cyan who have practiced with me. Neeb and Super have also helped me a lot. They have helped me prepared as if it was their own matches.
I hope we can put on good games in the finals and would like everyone to come down to watch the finals.
