After the Korean derby in the semifinal match of the WESG 2018-2019 Grand Finals StarCraft II division, we talked with the winner - Terran player Lee "INnoVation" Shin Hyung. He told us about the critical moments of the match and his expectations over the Final.
This is your first attempt on WESG and you in the Final. What do you feel about it?
I was not able to attend WESG Grand Finals before, but now I’m here and I feel very happy. Especially that I could reach the Final.
On the first map, Maruu took advantage. What were your thoughts before the second map?
In the first round I lost to myself, it was my mistake. But still, things were not so bad for me. I felt confident in this match and against my opponent. I didn't feel any pressure.
Proxy tactics is a very tricky thing. You made it successfully, but then prevent Maru's 2 barracks on the 4th map. It was just lucky guess or you had a feeling that Proxy is the only way for Maru?
The map was pretty good for Proxy and I thought that it was a good solution. Also, I kept the upper hand over the map and won it eventually.
For the 4th map, I think it was an obvious decision for Maru and it was expected.
On the third map when Maru went on the first push with siege tanks, you wipe him out. But from the viewers perspective, it seemed like Maru lost control over his units. What do you think, it was his fatal mistake or you forced him to make mistakes?
I think Maru was a little bit in rush and hesitated. That's why he did that mistake.
You going to face Serral in the Final. What do you think about his playstyle?
Last time I met him I won. It was the group stage of IEM Katowice. But that match was not important for Serral, so I don't expect an easy win here. We will see what's going to happen tomorrow.
What do you think about TvZ matchup for the Final Bo7 battle?
TvZ is quite a fun matchup for me. And Serral is very good right now, so I’m excitedly waiting for tomorrow’s match. And for sure I will do my best.
