How do you feel about winning in the ace match up?
All season long, our team has had to go all the way to the ace match up, but we had a terrible record of 1-3. I also heard a lot of sayings about how we cannot afford to go to the ace match up. I was sent out during a bad situation but I secured a win so I am happy.
Not a lot of people expected you to be sent out as the ace.
Recently I've gained a lot of confidence through my practices. The map was also Cloud Kingdom so Protoss was playable. I also got sent out because the coaching staff believed in me.
Was it already scheduled beforehand that you would be the ace?
Yes it was.
You lost game six so the situation was very burdensome.
I don't know how other people viewed that situation but for me, I thought I had the advantage. I lost my nexus and all but I was able to get a ton of my opponent's units. Had I just ignored his zergling army and headed straight for his main base, I would have won right then and there. But I mad a mistake and attacked his expansion instead. If I had played properly, I would have taken the victory.
지난 해 승수(2승)를 넘어섰는데. (no idea what this means)
I've been sent out for televised matches before so I wasn't nervous. But it's true that our team's score was heavily on my mind. I used to strongly think that it wouldn't matter if we lost just as long as we didn't go to the ace match but now my thoughts have changed. I just need to get sent out and take the victory. None the less, I am sorry that we make the fans wait for so long though.
Did you expect your opponent's build order for the ace match?
I think he was expecting me to just expand without scouting. But my style is to scout frequently. I made a lot of mistakes even though I was in an advantageous situation, but I got lucky and was able to win.
Your next opponent will be EG-TL.
EG-TL is a really good team. I am especially a HerO fan (laughs). I really did want to face them at least once. Regarding our match against EG-TL, I can see us going all the way to the ace match up.
This season's goals?
I want to grab at the very least, twenty victories. As long as I can maintain this pace, I think it will be a possibility.
Anything else you would like to say?
This was my very first ace match up victory. If I get more chances from here on out, I think I will be able to keep winning them. I want to thank the fans for cheering me on. I hope everyone can spend the rest of today having a wonderful Christmas.
