Pressekonferenz mit Kespa Spielern auf der MLG
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.
