We will be talking with the second person to advance to Ro16 today, herO. Congratulations on your victory today!
herO: Thank you.
The last match was quite a tense battle. Tell us how you feel.
herO: My mind is in jumbles right now. With a lot of close series today, I was able to scrape some wins to go further in this tournament, which I am happy about.
There were debates that if your opponent’s cheese was carried out better, your situation may have been direr. When were you certain that you could win?
herO: Honestly, after getting hit, and holding out with Stalker, I thought it was over, and when I came over with my army, I felt that my opponent gave up control too easily, which confused me.
Your Dark Templars in the second game were quite impactful. It was quite awestriking to witness, reaching 57 kills. It must have been quite a shame that you lost that game.
herO: I didn’t even realize my Dark Templar got that many kills. I was so busy paying attention to this or that.
It seems there are some moments from today that you found disappointing, such as your loss to Trap in the Winner’s Match. Despite holding a favorable record over him, it seems you were shaken mentally.
herO: Human being should always seek to learn and adapt, but despite the fact I was losing when playing hurriedly, I continued to make the same mistake. I think I will have to learn to be calm in the future.
There are some players that you are looking to give some payback. In Season 1, your Ro16 was disappointing, where you faced off against Dark. against who you held a dominating record similar to Trap. However, you were unable to act out your role as a nemesis, losing to Dark in the end. I bet you would like to see him once again?
herO: Actually, I don’t really miss him as much as I did in the past. I don’t feel like meeting him again, to be honest since he’s doing so well.
herO, there was a day when your interview was as awesome as your playstyle, but nowadays we can’t see that. Is it due to your recent records? Ever since 2017 Season 2, you were unable to advance further than Ro16. This must be frustrating for you.
herO: It has been a while since I made it to semifinals, that I can barely remember. While I wanted to do a confident interview, my ingame performances were very lacking so I think I just have to try hard.
herO, your current career does not match you. It’s time we change it this season. Do you have any last words for the fans?
herO: I’m sorry for once again showing my fans such a heart-stoppingly close matches. I say this all the time, but in the future, I will do my best to stay calm and show plays as close to perfection possible. I hope you continue to cheer for me. Thank you.
