T1 caught by DK once again
++T1 caught by DK once again aiming to 'break the seal'++
T1 of the multimodal system was different. T1 defeated Dplus Kia in the first round of the 2023 LCK (League of Legends) Summer Split playoffs.
Contrary to what was expected to be a tight match, they won with a set score of 3 to 1.
KT Rolster, who ranked first in the regular league, chose T1 as their opponent in the second round of the playoffs, and today the battle between the carriers takes place.
Meanwhile, Gen.G Esports and Hanwha Life Insurance Esports will face off on the 11th.
T1 was shaken by a break due to Faker (Lee Sang-hyeok)'s injury in the regular season and the resignation of former manager Bae Seong-woong.
However, after Faker returned in the last week of the regular season, they improved their lineup by winning two consecutive games.
On the 9th, he showed off his comeback performance by catching Diple Kia.
In particular, his concentration and management ability in teamfights in front of large objects, which was pointed out as a problem when he repeated 5 consecutive losses, showed an improvement.
Based on this, there were moments when he gave the lead to Diple Kia in the 3rd and 4th sets, but he succeeded in reversing.
T1 and fans are now looking forward to 'Again 2019 Summer'. T1 has achieved the so-called 'breaking the seal' championship in the 2019 LCK Summer Split during SK Telecom T1 in the past.
At the time, SKT T1 faltered with a record of 1 win and 5 losses at the beginning of the regular season.
However, after that, he recorded 9 consecutive wins and raised the rankings. SKT T1, who finished the regular season in 4th place, started the playoffs before the Wild Card match between 4th and 5th place.
After that, they defeated Afreeca Freecs, Sandbox Gaming, and Damwon Gaming in order to advance to the finals. He won the championship by defeating Griffin, who was the last opponent in the regular league and ranked first.
For the first time in the LCK, a team that started from the wild card won the championship.
This season is showing a similar trend. T1 recorded 1 win and 7 losses since July 5, when Faker was absent due to injury, showing the worst performance.
Faker's return in the last week, they captured Guangdong Freecs and Liv Sandbox and gained momentum with two consecutive victories.
In the first round of the playoffs, he even caught Diple Kia, raising expectations for 'breaking the seal'.
In particular, in order to advance to the League of Legends World Championship (Lold Cup), which will be held in Seoul and Busan this year, victory is desperately needed for T1.
T1, who finished runners-up last spring season, has earned 70 championship points.
However, if KT and Gen.G, who placed 1st and 2nd in the summer season regular league, make it to the finals, T1 will have to start.
T1 is in a situation where they have to advance to at least the finals in order to go directly to Worlds.
T1 failed to participate in both the 2014 and 2018 World Championships held in Korea.
The point to watch is whether T1 can break this jinx this year by advancing to the summer finals.
Meanwhile, from the second round of the playoffs, the double elimination method will be used.
A winner's match between the winning teams of the second round will determine the team that will advance to the finals first.
Afterwards, the team that will join the finals to be held in Daejeon on the 20th will be determined through the final match between the team that won the loser's match between the losing teams in the second round and the winner's match loser.
The winning team in the finals goes directly to Worlds as the No. 1 seed in the LCK.
