SlayerS_Boxer, YoHwan Lim, defeated HeeDoo Hwang by 2 to 0 and is promoted to the round of 32 of Global Starcraft 2 League.
His fast assault with 3 marines and a SCV under Boxer’s unique micro control damaged the opponent’s base at an early time. He finished the second game with his icon unit, medivac.
Fruit Dealer, WonKi Kim, the champion of first season of GSL, also won the round of 64 without a hard time.
Thisisgame interviewed YoHwan Lim after the match.
Congratulation, what do you feel of being promoted to the round of 32? I hope not to meet with Protoss next time. I am not perfectly ready against Protoss yet. I hope Jun Park defeat the Protoss player. The first game was not quite good although the early 3 marine assault damaged the opponent successfully. The second game went as I wished it to be as my tension got released.
How long have you been practicing? After the final match of pro league. I had a lot of time to think. I played it to kill some time.
What made you to play <Starcraft 2>? It’s the fans. I had to decide either becoming a coach or playing other game when I saw the fans leaving. My decision is to show them my play. I am still hungry.
You mean, being a 30s pro gamer? Indeed, I have not kept the promise yet and am still hungry.
What is the biggest difference in <Starcraft 2>? Obviously the interface that turned 2D into 3D. The damage had been reduced according to the size of unit in <Starcraft>, but now it adds bonus damage with a full damage in <Starcraft 2>. So the battle ends in a second.
How far do you think you can go if you do not match with a Protoss player next time? Not ready against Protoss does not mean I am not good enough against Protoss. I believe I can get the code s if I meet desired players.
Is there any players you do not want to match against? I hope not to play against who have practiced many times with me. Since I am alone, it’s very hard to do it all alone. Gathering a team or players would be my urgent need.
Do you have special?strategies for later? The fans love to watch my unique and unusual strategy but that won’t let me go higher. I also love to play with an unusual strategy but sometimes I have to play?seriously in order to win.
If I win with an unique strategy, it spreads in an instant via replay file. So honestly I do not want to create an unique?strategy?any more. The system of <Starcraft 2> is too good for people to imitate the player’s strategy. Then the game will not be fun any more. It should be fixed.
You seem not like exposing build order of the present replay system. Honestly I cannot understand why it needs to be so detail as it is now. I guess it is for fast popularization but it is very bad for pro gamers because we need number of accounts in order to hide our strategies when we practice.
What do you think about Fruit Dealer? He’s foxy. He plays the ladder game for searching strategy and practice seriously only with own team mates. I guess he worries for exposing strategy. I hope to see him at the high place.
