Your team has set foot on the stage of the finals for the first time in three seasons. How do you feel?
Monster: We kept trying and failing to make it past the Round of 4 during that period, so I'm glad that we were able to advance after such a long time.
Sniper: I'm happy that I was able to defeat the last opponent with my own two hands in order to reach the finals.
Had you anticipated that you would perform three kills today?
Monster: I honestly thought that I would only manage one kill, but I feel that luck was on my side. I had even thought that I had lost my match against Symbol at one point, but he made mistakes and allowed me to win.
Were you scheduled to be sent out today?
Monster: There was talk that I could possibly be sent out, but that was it. DongRaeGu-hyung was originally set to go out, but I was chosen to face Polt instead because my Terran teammates said that I would be a better match for him.
Sniper: I wanted to be sent out during the middle of the match so that I could play without any worries. When TAiLS-hyung failed to end the series as I had thought he would and Killer-hyung sent me out, I felt dismayed.
How did you prepare for today's match?
Monster: We focused on TSL's powerful Zerg line during practice, but also prepared against Terran for Polt.
Sniper: We prepared chiefly against Zergs. TSL chose the exact same players that we had predicted would be sent out.
Zergs are very strong at the moment. You must have been worried because of how many Zerg players are on TSL.
Monster: I don't think that Zerg is particularly strong. Protoss players have coped quite well, but I think that Terrans haven't yet found a solution.
Your were chosen for the eight set, a point where the player sent out for your team had previously lost two times in a row.
Sniper: DongRaeGu-hyung was right behind me, so I didn't feel too much pressure. Things worked out as I expected.
Your opponent was HyuN. He is a potential opponent for you in the GSL finals, so didn't you worry about having your builds exposed?
Sniper: I felt that if I beat HyuN once, I could make him worry even more. Since we could possibly meet at the GSL finals, I wanted to try playing a match against him beforehand.
Which team would you like to meet at the finals?
Sniper: I've said this in previous interviews as well, but I would prefer that FXO rose up instead of StarTale.
Monster: I would also prefer that FXO advanced. In addition to StarTale having an outstanding team composition, their players tend to have above-average records as individuals. I strongly feel that FXO is a team that is held together by GuMiho and Leenock.
You will be traveling to Las Vegas to play in the IPL, into which you've been seeded, in addition to the GSL semifinals.
Sniper: Because I haven't even traveled to an overseas event even once, I'm really looking forward to it. I honestly hadn't known that I'd received an IPL seed, but I think it's incredibly good that I've gotten it.
Please tell us about your determination that you have for the GSTL finals and any last words that you may have.
Sniper: I want to send my thanks to Coach Killer for staying with us and giving us lots of help. No matter which team we face, I think that we can manage to win. No matter who advances, I would like to make sure that we take the championship.
Monster: Since we've passed the Round of 4 and made it to the finals for the first time in a while, I want to ensure that we win.
