Artosis - When did you start thinking about going to Korea for Starcraft, and what finally made you decide to take the leap?
Ret - I’ve always wanted to be a pro gamer for Starcraft, and go to Korea. When I was younger, perhaps the more appropriate age, there were less foreigners in Korea and contacting pro teams managers was a lot harder than now. I had never expected that I would still get the chance to go to Korea, but when the opportunity arose I realized that it was still my dream and that I wanted to give it my best shot.
Artosis - What are your goals in going to Korea? How long do you intend to stay?
Ret - The immediate goal for Starcraft would be to win the courage tournament and then perhaps play a Pro League match. But we’ll have to see what happens when SC2 comes out and how that changes things. I really don’t know how long I’ll stay, but I intend to stay in pro gaming for SC2, so it could be a long time.
Artosis - Winning the courage tournament is something that only 1 foreigner has ever done before (Assem), even though NonY came very close, losing the finals 1-2 on his first try. Supposedly they have even made it a much harder tournament now. What time frame do you think you can win this event in?
Ret - I think my ZvZ will be the only problem with winning Courage. So if I can get that matchup up to par quickly, I should be a pretty strong contender. If that happens reasonably quick, I think I could possibly win it on my first try. But of course to win any tournament with a strong field of players, you’ll also need some luck.

He will do amazingly well. Nada isn't what he used to be but he is still used in proleague / etc.. he was taken down in a solid straight up game on a balanced ish map. Ret in the korean climate could be the foreigners first real big name over there since leg.
No disrespect to greg.. he had done great things too I just think ret ON estro with what he has can do some more glamorous things.
