T1 and KT Rolster will clash on Saturday, August 19, in the LoL Champions Korea (LCK) 2023 Summer lower-bracket finals. The two rivals last met in the second round of the upper bracket last week, when T1 edged past KT Rolster.
T1 had an excellent start to the regular season and looked like legitimate LCK 2023 Summer title contenders, but it all came crashing down in the fourth week when Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok took a four-week break with an arm injury. Without Faker, T1 would go on to win just one of eight series, but they quickly bounced back upon the mid laner’s return.
The three-time LoL world champions continued their resurgence into the playoffs, beating Dplus KIA (3-1) and KT Rolster (3-2), but proved to be no match for Gen.G (2-3) in the upper-bracket finals.
Overall, T1 have looked good, but despite their improvement and a 1-0 head-to-head lead against KT in the playoffs, Faker and co. enter this match as underdogs. On the one hand, it makes sense since KT Rolster didn’t play particularly well in their first meeting with T1; however, T1 have looked excellent in their three playoff games, suggesting they’re back in top form.
As with any edition of the Telecom Wars, this should be a very entertaining affair. On paper, there’s no clear favourite to come out ahead; however, if we ignore T1’s regular-season slump and focus solely on what they’ve shown in the playoffs, they shouldn’t be priced as underdogs.
