Im sonnigen Californien findet dieses Wochenende das MLG Spring Championship statt, wo unter anderem auch acht Broodwar Progamer in einem speziellen Turnier gegeneinander antreten. Zu diesen acht Spielern gehören:
Flash, Jaedong, Bisu, Stork, Fantasy, Calm, Leta und Soulkey
Wir von inStarcraft bieten euch schon einen Teil der Fragen und Antworten dieser Pressekonferenz:
Q: What's the hardest part of playing Starcraft 2? How many hours do you play it? How have you adjusted now? How long till you get to Broodwar level?
Bisu: The units are quite different, finding out the counter relationships was hard. I like being aggressive, but Protoss in Starcraft 2 has to be defensive so that's tough. I'm playing a lot, but I'm not fully adjusted yet. I haven't won a game in Proleague yet so I have to get better.
Soulkey: I think you have to look at Broodwar and Starcraft 2 as completely different games. I'm playing a lot of Starcraft 2, but it's tough because im playing both. If I could play just Starcraft 2, I think I could catch up to other players in 6 months.
Q: What's the hardest part about playing both Broodwar and Starcraft 2 at the same time?
Stork: Protoss in Broodwar has a lot different styles: aggressive, macro style etc. But you can't do that in Starcraft 2, so the style difference is hard. It's hard to understand the counter relationships and put together the right compositions.
Q: Do you watch any GSL or GSTL?
Flash: I watch it when I have free time, I think the problem is we just don't know as many builds.
Jaedong: We can't be compared to Code S players yet, I think by the time this season ends, we might be Code A level.
Q to Calm: You're playing two different races in Broodwar and Starcraft 2. How is that going?
Calm: I gave Terran a try and it somehow stuck - I plan to take a long term approach on all of this, it could all change?
Q: How do you all feel about who will win this mini tournament? (you can't pick yourself)
Bisu: I think Soulkey, I hear he's high Grandmaster. And he's looked good in Proleague as well.
Fantasy: Soulkey, there's a lot of rumors about how good he is. I'm afraid to face him in the first round.
Jaedong: Soulkey, I've heard he's really good.
Leta: I think Jaedong will win.
Stork: Soulkey, because what everyone else said.
Soulkey: Jaedong... because you said I can't pick myself.
Calm: I think Jaedong or Soulkey.
Flash: Ah wait, I only picked Soulkey because the question said don't pick myself.
Q: Do you think Heart of the Swarm will have a big affect on narrowing the gap between KeSPA and other players?
Flash: I think it will help a lot. We've caught up very fast over the last month, and I think Heart of the Swarm will help as well.
Bisu: I also think that Heart of the Swarm is where we really begin.
Q: Who are your favorite Starcraft 2 players?
Bisu: HerO and JYP because they're good at PvZ.
Fantasy: There's a lot, but if I had to pick one, MMA.
Jaedong: I'm a big fan of my old teammate Symbol, and Stephano as well.
Leta: MKP, just look at his face! I also like Oz a lot because it's funny to see him collapse.
Stork: JYP and HerO
Flash: Mvp, he plays Starcraft 2 like I play Broodwar.
Soulkey: I like all Zerg, but I like DRG and Stephano a lot.
Calm: I'm impressed the most by SuperNoVa's play.
Q: How do you feel about all build orders and records being open to see on B.net?
Everyone but Jaedong: It sucks
Jaedong: I don't care.
