T1’s fanatical community in Korea, is being heavily criticized for its behavior of putting pressure on the home team and the LCK tournament.
The LCK Spring 2022 Champion is playing very “smoothly” this summer as they are leading the race with GEN after more than 7 weeks of competition. Recently, T1 also had an impressive 2-1 victory in the “telecom war” with KT. But that is probably not satisfied enough for this team’s fans, especially when their victories are not tinged with “destruction” like the golden age. Looking back, T1 is a team with a long history of achievements, “unprecedented” awards with 3 World Championships or 10 LCK trophies. So, after this team showed excellent form in 2021, fans were expecting the boys to take home the 4th Worlds “throne”. But that didn’t happen when they did. lost in the semi-finals to DK. After that forgettable defeat, fans pointed out that the biggest reason for this failure was the people behind the scenes – the Coach team.

This “excellent” won 1-35 results in the end thanks to his leadership talent. Therefore, the suspicion of fans is completely grounded and it is even more true when T1 lost at MSI this year. Fans are worried because this failure is likely to be repeated in the upcoming Worlds, they require a more seasoned team with enough experience and expertise in the international arena. . In addition, they also expressed their desire to remove the current team, which includes Kim ‘Moment’ Ji-Hwan and Choi ‘Polt’ Seong-hun.

Just last week, T1’s legal department also sued those who insulted and attacked Faker. At the same time, the KT Rolster team had to speak up when they received threats, even guns, sent to the team’s gaming house. Currently, T1 has not yet responded to the above requests.
