S.163.COM/SW7：Hi grubby, I want to congrats you for defeating DIMAGA in the SW7 EU/US Starcraft 2 online tournament and advance to the final stages. First thing first, would you evaluate the bo5 match between you and DIMAGA?
Grubby：Hi Stars War 7 and everyone. Thank you very much!
DIMAGA is a powerful opponent with a unique style. In order to defeat him, I had to understand the strengths and weaknesses of his build. I didn’t have much time to prepare, so I had to theory craft to develop a new tactic. It was impossible for him to know how I was going to play, because my exact play style was unique and first-time. My replays would have been impossible to use, for him. This was my advantage. I also think I had some luck and I was inside DIMAGA’s head. It was one of those days where it was going well. I’m very glad to return to China.
S.163.COM/SW7：You have appear as commentator in recent matches. Could you tell us about how you balance between being a player and a commentator?
Grubby：I am a player, but I do casting 3% of the time. It’s enjoyable for me and the fans like it. The feedback is very positive. I hope that I can create a new level of appreciation and understanding about the game, for all the fans.
S.163.COM/SW7：You are going to face Macsed sen MMA in the final, how are you going to play against them?
Grubby：Without mercy. I dream of taking the trophy in front of my fans of my “second home country”: China.
S.163.COM/SW7：There are many people on the bn ladder talking about P is imba, especially their late game. What do you have to say to those people think "Protoss is imba"
Grubby：It’s not true. Protoss must finish the game quickly against Zerg, or they will surely die. If the Zerg makes a lot of bad mistakes, Protoss can still win late game. Against Terran, early, mid and late game go back and forth. Both have chances to win the game. I like late game PvT, so it’s probably quite hard for Terran. But it’s not impossible. Terrans are starting to get better at late game PvT, with high numbers of Vikings & Ghosts, and the usage of Nuclear Missiles.
S.163.COM/SW7：Who are the top EU players in your eyes? Name at least one for each race.
Grubby：P: Socke/MaNa have the best LAN results
S.163.COM/SW7：Grubby, you have so many fans in China. You also took your wedding photos in China. What do you think about your special chemistry with China.
Grubby：Because they love me, I love them. I feel like I am among friends when I am in China. My time spent in China is unforgettable, but I don’t wish to live only on memories. Therefore I am glad to return to China once again after so long, since last time in January 2011. 17 months, it’s too long ^^
S.163.COM/SW7：Grubby, you are already 26 years old. How long you going to playing professional? Do you have any other plan in the future?
Grubby：I hope very long, haha ^^ No other plans.
S.163.COM/SW7：A lot people think War 3 players cannot become top tier SC 2 players. But this theory seems overthrow recently. Naniwa, thorzain and violet are all formor War3 players and they all won champions.On the other hand, you and moon, the best players in War 3, didn't do so well compare to viOlet. What do you think about this?
Grubby：I think I take longer time to adjust. I start StarCraft 1 year later than most players. Because of this, I need more time. Also, I think I am like the turtle against the hare. Slower progress, but unstoppable. Haha.
S.163.COM/SW7：In the past, you got sponsorship by SteelSeries. But now, are you going to join a SC2 team?
Grubby：I am an independent StarCraft 2 player. I am personally sponsored by TwitchTV, where I show my live practice games to fans around the world. I hope that China fans can enjoy it too, on http://twitch.tv/followgrubby.
Because of sponsorships and fans’ support, I am able to exist without having a team. Being an independent player is better for me, because I am more free. I work with companies of my choosing, who I think have a good product.
S.163.COM/SW7：Thank you so much for taking our interview today. Finally yet importantly, what do you want to say to your fans in china?
Grubby：Xie xie dajia!! 我期待着我们在上海的相遇 Qidai SW7!!!
