In the transfer period after Worlds 2023, T1 is a rare team in the LCK that keeps the same lineup heading into the new season. Meanwhile, strong teams such as Gen.G, KT Rolster (KT), Dplus KIA (DK), Hanwha Life Esports (HLE) all have huge changes in personnel. As for KT, they even recruited 3 players from the DRX 2022 squad including Pyosik, Deft and BeryL.
KT has successfully recruited 3 players to the DRX 2022 squad
Recently, KT coach Hirai shared some very notable comments about the transfer period of the home team in recent times. Specifically, Pyosik and Deft are the players who soon reached an agreement to join KT right after Worlds 2023 ended. After that, it was Deft who asked this team to buy BeryL to raise hopes of winning the championship or at least defeating T1.
Deft had a decisive voice in KT recruiting BeryL
“We often talk to the players about their direction for next year, such as winning the championship or defeating T1, for example. When talking with Deft, he affirmed that KT really needs BeryL to be able to do those things. BeryL is the type of player for big matches. He was not afraid or hesitant even in the Finals” – Coach Hirai shared with the press.
Coach Hirai revealed: “Deft told me frankly that KT really needed BeryL so we decided to recruit him.”
Indeed, in the past few years, BeryL has always been a highly appreciated Support player in the LCK region. The fact that this player can win the world championship in two different colors is enough to prove BeryL’s class. Furthermore, BeryL’s excellent “team calling” ability and composure in big matches are extremely valuable qualities.
With the successful recruitment of BeryL, KT is definitely aiming for better results in the upcoming 2024 season. This team in the 2023 season received bitter defeats in the LCK Summer qualifiers and Worlds. The presence of experienced players like BeryL promises to help KT have better results in big matches.
BeryL will help KT become a team worth watching next season
Remember Deft, BeryL or Pyosik once “sowed sadness” for T1’s current squad at Worlds 2022 and created a memorable magical journey. Therefore, the “grudge” between the players will help make the “Great Telecommunications War” in the 2024 season extremely interesting.
