Returning to the LCK after “a year studying abroad” in the North American League of Legends region, Pyosik will have the third time playing alongside Deft after both joined KT.
A few days ago, Deft said he would postpone his military service until 2025 so he could play another season in 2024.
Besides, KT also announced the contract expiration along with a series of players including Kiin, Cuzz, Aiming and Lehends. This team is rumored to build a new squad around Bdd.
As of today, KT has officially announced two new members of this team: Deft and Pyosik. KT welcomed 2 new members through videos as well as the team’s latest posts.
[Official] Welcome Deft & Pyosik
With Deft, he played for KT in the 2017-2018 season and was crowned LCK Summer 2018 champion, but at Worlds the same year he and his teammates lost 2-3 to IG in the Quarterfinals.
As for Pyosik, this is his first time coming to KT but will be his third time playing alongside Deft. In the most recent collaboration between the two, this pair as well as DRX won the 2022 World Championship.
Looking back at the journey at the recent World Championship 2023, like T1, KT also encountered all 4 opponents from LPL but this team fell 1-3 to JDG. For that reason, perhaps KT is eager to return to the international arena to prove himself.
