You haven’t secured an all kill in a while. How do you feel?
Honestly, I came out with the thought of only grabbing one or two kills but somehow I achieved an all kill. The all kill format (answer got cut off here :/)
You took a huge lead in the most wins award with your all kill today.
I really wanted to take a huge lead in the most wins competition. It feels so neck and neck having three players at 33 wins like that (laughs). But since the all kill format ends this week, I think my competition will have trouble playing catch up, no? (laughs) I think I’ll be a shoo-in for that most wins award even if I only end up grabbing one win every match from here on out. I’m really relieved (laughs).
You probable expected an all kill to come since your opponent would have been mostly Zergs after you won game one.
Honestly, I really did think that but I almost lost that game vs herO cause I made too many mistakes. Thankfully, I was able to win because herO also made mistakes since he got nervous. After I overcame that obstacle, I think my hands were fully warmed up.
herO made the mistake of giving away his high templars a little too easily.
In total, herO wasted away about eight high templars. Actually, in my mind, I think there were four more templars that he wasted away (laughs). So I started thinking that I was going to win around then.
As of late, Terrans have a really good win percentage vs Zergs.
During practice, I lose the most against Zergs. Honestly, at first, I didn’t think Zerg was a good race but I think they’re progressed forward a lot lately. I can’t help but think that maybe Zergs will be the superior ones in just a little bit. These days, Zergs have found out how to play against widowmines (laughs).
Tomorrow will be the WCS Korea Season 1 finals between INnoVation and Soulkey. What are you expecting to happen?
Honestly, they are really similar players. But it is the first ever finals for both of them right? So the end result will depend on who gets less nervous. I think skillwise, they are just completely on par. I’ve actually already helped out Soulkey so I think I should try to remain neutral. Terran has the advantage but Soulkey is rather strong against INnoVation so we’ll find out when the time comes.
Did you get sent out as the starter so you could secure an all kill?
The supervisor told me to grab an all kill (laughs). He kind of blackmailed me saying that this was my last chance and that he would like to see an all kill (laughs). I am relieved that I was able to win like this after getting sent out as the starter.
KT Rolster could end up taking 1st place.
I probably would have thought that as a possibility had Woongjin lost yesterday but they won. So now we have to focus on maintaining second place. Personally, I think grabbing second place is good. It’s really helpful when you can play during the playoffs so that you’re all warmed up for the finals.
Anything else you would like to say?
(This is a literal translation. I have no idea what Flash said here) Lately, I’ve been living without a mentality line (laughs). I was struggling because I caught a cold while the seasons were changing, so I hope everyone will watch out for colds. These days, I’m feeling the lack of exercise. Since the season for exposing oneself is coming, I hope everyone will exercise real hard (laughs). (This last sentence, I’m not 100% sure but I think Flash is saying that he hopes everyone will work out and exercise and look good since it’s going to get hot and people are going to be wearing more revealing clothing and exposing themselves more)
