Jérémy "Feast" Vansnick, of Millenium, is the star of the 24th episode of my 'Grilled' interview series.
How confident was Feast at tournaments early on in his SC2 career? Is it true that a lot of foreign Protoss gamble a lot? What does he think of PartinG and Creator? What are his opinions on NaNiwa, monchi and MaNa? Who will be the best Korean Protoss in one year? What draws Feast to blink play? What impressed him so much about Rain's play? Why didn't he understand MC's success? Is the Protoss deathball no longer deserving of hype?
