"Headaches" Stork: Before... there were many older players (than myself) like JJu... But now I am the eldest. And I am the only person who ever won anything in the team. Being that player, I should offer my young teammates worthy advise or encouragement... To me, that is very difficult.
Caster: That's very true. Also, you, yourself, cannot ask anyone else for an advise since you are that person they all look up to. That must be very frustrating as well. And what other issues/headaches did you have after becoming a champion?
Stork: As you know, (Team) Proleague has become a lot bigger and that much more significant. Before when I thirst to win a title, both OGN and MBC had their own Proleagues. Remember Nal_rA? I thought when you win a title like he did, your life will be set for good, everyone will respect you and all. But when I had the chance to win like that, I always got second place. Only after the Proleague has become huge, I won a title. But now, even if you win a title, you do not get the title as "the best". There are just too many players who are just dominating in the Proleague, and you only get the same respect as them. That was a huge let down for me, after winning a title with soo much effort put into it. Just too many competition... just one title.
Not only that... I could not have won the title at any worse time than this. Bisu goes to the Final as well... and against my own teammate, Jangbi. Bisu wins, my teammate loses, and Bisu being one of the greatest protoss gets all the spotlight.
"About Bisu" Stork: When JJu was here, I used to tell him that I needed no practice at all to win games. All I needed was the enthusiasm/force to beat my opponents. Now, everyone have gone crazy. Crazy... Everyone practice insane amount of time. Enthusiasm? Forget that. Practice, practice, practice. That's all there is to it.
I used to practice for Proleague during practice hours, and Individual league only during my own person free time. Now that is not enough. Not even close... I can tell that my physical(APM) is lacking compared to newly-become progamers. I sorely felt it when I went to a tournament and looked at Bisu's screen.
Jangbi(hearing everything since now): Stork is a BIG time Bisu's fan. (Everyone agrees, even the 2 casters next to him) He did not used to be one. But ever since... what was that tournament? The one in china?
Jangbi: Yea! That's the one. The one he got a silver. When he came back, he came back as a different person. He told me "Omg! I saw Bisu's hands and it was RIDICULOUS!!~~"
Caster2 (Nal_rA): Why do you always feel like a victim when it comes to Bisu?
Stork: Best physical, best physical... I didn't care before. I might have slow hands, but I'm still capable of doing everything that are necessary. So what's such a big deal? Well, remember I said that I lack physical? Bisu made me feel that way. In the finals against Bisu, I kept missing the tempo just because Bisu was doing everything faster than me. Not because I didn't know what was suppose to be done, but just because my hands could not keep up with his faster hands. Ever since then, I admit Bisu as a great player, and now I've become a total Bisu fan...
Jangbi: lol... he always say "Our bisu, our bisu" (Only fans would add that personal title)
Caster: Jangbi, don't you have one of the fastest hands?
Jangbi: I don't know. I never thought about it that way.
Caster: It looks really fast, because your multi-task is so great. So did you ever get shocked, like Stork did, by looking at another player play?
Jangbi: Nope, I didn't even care to be honest.
Caster: That means you're fast.
Stork: He's just so great, he doesn't give a shit about the rest. hehe (Stork did not use any offensive word, but he was just throwing a friendly jest)
Jangbi: I do not look at other player's screen... because at the end, you play the game with your own hands, not theirs. I don't think it would matter much...
Stork: Did you know Jangbi has a facial expression when he starts moving his hands very fast? When I see him during the practice. He gets crazy fast when he uses storms, I can't even follow his movements...
Caster2 (Nal_rA): Oh I know! He gathers his mouth. And his mouth beings to tremble!
Stork: Yea! That's what happen!
And here I end with the new APM bonjwa(since this was majorly about progamer's physical)... his apm is only matched by MAYBE Jaedong or Bisu... By.Hero
