“No matter what the fans do, it comes from the love for the team,” said T1’s representative.
Faker sympathized with a group of people claiming to be T1 fans who held a protest right outside the organization’s headquarters and LOL Park, Seoul yesterday (August 4). “Whatever the fans do, it comes from love for the team,” the T1 captain said in an interview after the 2-0 win over Hanwha Life Esports last night. “Everyone in T1 should try harder to return the love that our fans give us. I will do my best for the fans.”
A group of about 100 people in Korea are showing disappointment with the results and the way the T1 coaching staff have worked from the beginning of the season until now. Sending unanswered handwritten letters, this group of people paid to rent a truck with a large LED screen to express their frustration and blame the lack of experience and attitude of the coaching staff. “The head coach is incompetent. The demoted coach admitted his incompetence. The solution here is: Hire more coaches who have won Worlds” – according to translation on Reddit.
As reported, the local fan group once wrote a handwritten letter to T1 asking the organization to raise the “brain” for the League of Legends team before Worlds 2022. As the most successful organization in history with three times up. At the top of the world, T1 fans have high standards that are unique to the team in all circumstances. After going undefeated on their way to being crowned LCK Spring 2022, T1 was unable to defeat longtime rival Royal Never Give Up at the Mid-Season Invitational Finals.
T1 is currently second in the LCK Summer 2022 standings and has less than two weeks left to enter the play-off round. T1 (13-2) still has three matches to go and has already secured a spot despite losing to direct competitor Gen.G last week. It’s still unclear where this will go because the last time fans saw T1 win the international championship was from MSI 2017 and the last Summoner’s Cup they won was at Worlds 2016. Faker and his teammates will face Nongshim RedForce (3rd) -12) – the team has run out of motivation to compete because there are no tickets left – at 15:00 on August 7.
Despite facing a lot of pressure, T1 is still achieving positive results in the domestic arena
