You started off strong in the opening match. How do you feel?
I made a strong start in the first match, so now that the league has begun and I have a long schedule ahead of me, I will work hard to become even better.
How did you prepare for your game against Zenio?
When I looked Zenio up, I found nearly no information on him: the only games of his that I found were from long ago. Because of that, I played the using the style that I liked and focused on practicing with my teammates.
Knowing the player whom you were going to face in advance must not have been very helpful for you.
It really wasn't helpful to me. To be frank, not being able to find information on my opponent made me very nervous. However, I got a feeling that I would be able to win during the early game.
Don't you feel regretful that you weren't able to face Jaedong?
It's true that I wanted to play a match against Jaedong, but there are still a lot of opportunities left since there are so many more rounds. I want to face him often.
During today's match, you went for a quick Raven build.
The Raven got buffed before the season started, so I was able to use it to make the build that I had originally thought of much more efficient. If you use the Raven like the Science Vessel from Brood War, you can get a lot out of it. When used like a Vessel, it's quite useful for eliminating Creep and burrowed Banelings.
Why do you think that EG-TL fell apart so completely?
I think the difference was in how prepared we were. It hasn't been long since their teams united, and they haven't had much experience with the team house lifestyle, so we had an advantage in those areas. We just prepared as we always do for Proleague, and it was great that we were able to face EG-TL early on.
We're curious to hear your thoughts on the newly introduced maps.
I personally feel great that the old BW maps have returned, but I don't think they're good maps for Terran (laughs). The maps are too large, and it's difficult to scout Pylon locations when playing against Protoss. But still, I think that if I keep studying the maps, I can obtain good results.
We're curious to hear what resolutions you've made for yourself this season.
I did very poorly last season, so I want to take back my title of "King of Most Wins". I want to achieve results that are worthy of my team name and make sure that we take the championship.
Do you have anything more to say?
I feel great about being able to meet the fans for the first time in a long while. My teammates prepared very hard; even while others took breaks, we didn't rest at all. Because we came in nearly last place during the previous season, it's only natural that we practiced so much. Since we've come back much stronger, I hope that people have high expectations for us in the future.
