Our good friend Morozov of GoodGame.ru sat down with one of the best Nightelf players of all time, ReMinD, who recently made his comeback in iFeng and GERA Cups. In this short interview, they discuss the life in the korean army, WCA 2015 and the War3 future of the WCG winner of 2010.
Morozov: He ReMinD! We're very happy that you finally finished your army duties. How are you and what can you tell us about living in the Korean army?
ReMinD: I'm fine and very glad to be home again. It was very hard for me to have this kind of life.... going to bed at 10pm, getting up at 6am and study the art of war. It felt like beeing imprisoned because you're not allowed to do what you want. That made me realize, that freedom is a treasure.
Morozov: Please tell us about your future plans for Warcraft 3. Do you plan to participate in the WCA 2015 qualifier or even smaller tournaments?
ReMinD: Yes, I will take part in WCA 2015 and to regain my former strength, I will play other tournaments prior to that.
Morozov: Do you plan on streaming your games?
ReMinD: Sure, I hope that I will have the chance to stream if people want to see my games from the first person perspective.
Morozov: You've been at the top of the Warcraft 3 scene for such a long time, remembering the good old Zotac days. You're the undisputed king of that tournament series. How did you manage to do that?
ReMinD: Actually I don't know, until this day it's a mystery to me. Maybe I just played more tournaments than others, maybe they weren't as resilient than I was or they were discouraged by the absence of money in the scene. They should've played more Zotac cups than (Kappa)
Morozov: Who helps you with training nowadays?
ReMinD: I just came back from the army and LawLiet helps me a lot. He tells me the current meta game for nightelves, watches replays with me and explains the changes compared to 2012. I'm very grateful for that.
Morozov: Did you play Starcraft 2? What did you think of the game?
ReMinD: No comment. I do not want to play Starcraft 2.
Morozov: Ok then, thank you very much for your time and we wish you best of luck to become the number one elf in the world once again!
ReMinD: Thank you, too
