SK Telecom T1 is one of the world’s premier League of Legends teams, boasting players from South Korea backed by one of their major telecom providers SK Telecom.
T1 created history this year by going undefeated through an entire LCK Spring split – becoming the first team ever to do so and the first LCK team never to drop a series.
T1 Esports Team has established themselves as one of the premier League of Legends teams ever seen, winning three consecutive LoL World Championships (2013, 2015 and 2016).
T1 Esports, owned jointly by SK Telecom and Comcast Spectacor, operates globally within esports. They boast several competitive gaming divisions such as Fortnite, Dota 2, PUBG and Apex Legends for competitive gaming enthusiasts to experience their services.
2022 was an amazing year for Team Eternity: they achieved an unprecedented 100% win rate during Spring Season play and made it all the way into Playoffs, while also amassing impressive viewership numbers that propelled LCK into one of the Top 10 most-watched esports events for 2018.
At Worlds, they were also victorious, beating EDward Gaming, Cloud9, and Fnatic to reach the Grand Final. Hanwha Life Esports proved easy going in their quarter-final win 3-0; setting up their meeting with DRX in the final.
T1 Esports Team have recently made numerous adjustments to their lineup in preparation for the 2022 LCK season, such as replacing Kim “Asper” Tae-gi with Bae “Bengi” Seong-woong as their head coach.
T1 still looks formidable in the LCK, even after numerous roster changes. Star mid laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok remains signed onto for their 2023 season and ensures they can compete at an elite level once more.
T1 enjoyed an outstanding year in 2022, winning their third League of Legends World Championship title and setting an LCK split assist record of 262. They showed particularly well during the 2022 Worlds Group Stage by outwitting both EDward Gaming and Cloud9 to take first place in group A. Now they look to build on that success and defend their Worlds crown once more – taking on tough groups including JD Gaming from China as part of Group D!

VALORANT’s ranked ladder is an essential feature, and understanding it is key. There are nine ranks to climb from Iron all the way to Radiant.
Riot has published a comprehensive guide that details each rank’s requirements, how to obtain them and tips for thriving and surviving on the ranked ladder.
T1 remains one of the most globally influential powerhouses in League of Legends despite changing names, logos, and jerseys; winning three World Championships, two Mid-Season Invitational Championships, and nine LCK Championships over time.
South Korean teams have an excellent record in winning titles, yet this year are facing stiff competition. Beyond competing in an intense region with other top teams around the globe, South Korean squad players and staff are receiving death threats against themselves and each other.
Faker recently spoke out against threats made against his teammates and their families, and has agreed to remain part-owner with T1, signing a three-year contract to keep his name visible on the team.
