Because, each season of League of Legends in general only takes place in a short period of time (about 4-5 months). And therefore, stability is extremely important. But in the 2021 season, T1 made a surprise when it fired the coach pair Daeny – Zefa right when the 2021 LCK Summer Split was only halfway done.
