Ever since your debut nine years ago, you have finally secured a starter all kill.
I feel really good. Up till now, the best record I had ever achieved in Proleague was a three kill back in BW. But I told myself that I should try to grab an all kill at least once during my pro gaming career. After I grabbed the victory for game three, I reset my mind as if I was preparing for game one for the final game. I'm glad I was able to achieve this record.
You shone today with your strategies.
My focus was on game one. I even changed my build order many times. I told myself that I should go for a strategic build order for game two. Luck followed me for the rest of my games. For game four, I was conscious of what pathways were available so I was pondering moving out or not but then I also found fortune when my opponent moved out first.
It is hard for Protosses to win on the map, Arkanoid.
It is true that Arkanoid is a troublesome map. You don't even know what your opponent is doing so often, your build orders get crossed over. Which is why for today's game, I just told myself to do what I need to do and just be done with it.
Tell us the secret behind your all kill.
Whenever I participate in an all kill format match, I always have a tendency to lower my guard once I start stacking up the wins. I would always think to myself, "even if I lose, my teammates will take care of things for me." For today's match, my hubaes (younger people) requested that I dominate because Protoss is OP. The biggest factor to my victory was that I did not let my guard down.
Is it safe to say that you've been resurrected?
I always try my best but results never turned out the way I wanted it to. There were a lot of times where I disappointed my fans. Personally, I was having a hard time with all this but I think I'll be able to show a much better form from here on out because of today's match results.
Woongjin Stars has risen to #1.
For this year, the Proleague season is going to last one year and not six months. In the past, if we rode a roller coaster (he's talking about their results, not an actual roller coaster) then we would start doing bad from season two. This time, we're kicking things off from round two so my mind is at peace. As the team's captain, I feel like we'll be able to safely finish off the season well. The remaining rounds will be most important.
On Saturday, you will face EG-TL.
Their roster is full of great players. I think the games are going to be really fun regardless of who I face. Honestly, I would like to face a Zerg player. Mainly because I haven't really faced many of their players through this league.
Did you feel any pressure from being the starter because of the fact that Woonjin was on a winning streak?
The team's atmosphere was so good that I got nervous a lot. I wanted to show my best form for my teammates.
What do you want to treat your teammates to?
I want to buy them whatever they want to eat. I was originally planning on just buying them some beef but I had no idea I was going to achieve an all kill. They said no thank you at first but after I got an all kill they came up to me and said they changed their mind and that they want the beef. That took me by surprise.
After you achieved your all kill the coaching staff rejoiced.
Even though my results were not the best the coaching staff and supervisor Lee never stopped believing in me. I always told myself that if I get sent out, I should make sure that I don't get knocked out easily. Since I grabbed an all kill today, the coaching staff was really happy. If they continue to send me out as the starter from here on out then I will keep showing a great form.
Anything else you would like to say?
As we were preparing for today's match, the dongsaengs (young'uns) really did a job well done. It was imperative that we came up with great build orders so they were forced to stay awake late in to the morning even though they had headaches. I am going to treat them to something yummy so I hope the young'uns can overcome the older players on the team and make their way to the top.
