T1 secured their ninth League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) title on Saturday with a commanding 3-0 win over the top side in the LCK 2020 Spring Split regular season, Gen.G.

The LCK Spring Split grand finals were billed as a close contest, with several esports betting sites installing Gen.G as the favourites. However, T1 have a reputation for shifting into a higher gear when playoffs roll around, and that is exactly how things panned out on this occasion.

T1โ€™s entire roster put up excellent performances over the weekend. The standout, however, was jungler Moon โ€œCuzzโ€ Woo-chan, who received the Most Valuable Player award for the LCK Spring Split finals.

Another member of T1 who deserves special praise for his contribution is head coach Kim “Kim” Jeong-soo. His draft knowledge came to the fore in the second and third games, where he was able to take advantage of Gen.Gโ€™s questionable picks. That made up for T1’s inauspicious start to the match, as they lost two ban picks for the first game as a penalty for arriving late to the LCK Arena.

What makes T1โ€™s title-winning run even more impressive is the fact they entered the 2020 season with a huge question mark above their heads after top laner Kim “Khan” Dong-ha, jungler Kim “Clid” Tae-min and support Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong left for FunPlus Phoenix, Gen.G and Royal Never Give Up respectively. Cuzz was one of the players who came in to fill the void, while Kim “Canna” Chang-dong and Lee “Effort” Sang-ho also achieved high marks in their first split at T1.

Cuzz and Effort made the All-LCK Second Team with 125 and 98 MVP points respectively, while was the league’s fifth-ranked top laner with 81 MVP points to his name. Park “Teddy” Jin-seong was named as the bottom laner in the All-LCK First Team, while Faker made the All-LCK Third Team in the mid lane.

By winning 2020 LCK Spring Split playoffs, T1 pocketed โ‚ฉ100,000,000 (~US $81,261) in tournament winnings. They would also have gained entry to the 2020 LoL Mid-Season invitational, but that event was recently cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
