Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu (김혁규) is the ADCarry Icon.png AD Carry for KT Rolster.


Season 3

Deft's first team was MVP Blue. He joined them in February of 2013. MVP's first success was at the OGN Club Masters. They won the tournament after taking down Xenics-OP United 3-2 in the finals. At the AMD-INVEN GamExperience, MVP Blue reached the semifinals but got eliminated by NaJin White Shield. In September of 2013, Blue and their sister team MVP Ozone were picked up by the Samsung organization and Blue rebranded to Samsung Galaxy Blue. In October they attended the 2013 WCG Korea Qualifiers and got 2nd place, only losing to CJ Entus Blaze 1-2 in the finals.

Season 4

In the start of 2014, Blue placed 3rd in the ZOTAC NLB Winter 2013-2014. They rebounded from that 3rd place finish big time, winning the HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014, taking down NaJin White Shield 3-1 in the finals. In the HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014, Blue reached all the way to the finals but in a huge upset, they lost 2-3 to KT Rolster Arrows and placed 2nd. Despite their 2nd place finish in the summer, Blue was able to get the #1 seed from Korea for the 2014 World Championship.

At Worlds, Blue was placed in Group C along with LMQ, Fnatic and OMG. They performed very well in groups, finishing with a 5-1 record, only dropping one game to Fnatic. In the Quarterfinals, Blue faced Cloud9 and despite C9 putting up a good fight, Blue was able to win the series 3-1. In the Semifinals, Blue would face off against their sister team Samsung Galaxy White. Even though the series was expected to be close, Blue was defeated 0-3 and placed 3rd-4th at the tournament. Deft would then leave the team shortly after Worlds and went on to join Edward Gaming in November of 2014.

Season 5

Edward Gaming regained their form in the LPL, coming first in the 2015 Spring Split. They defeated LGD Gaming 3-2 in the Playoff Final of the Spring Season. This allowed them to qualify for the first ever Mid-Season Invitational. EDG won this tournament, defeating Korea's SK Telecom T1 in the final, to win the tournament.

In the LPL summer split, EDG continued their surging form into the regular season, winning the majority of their matches to finish first. This didn't last long, however, as EDG finished fourth in playoffs and didn't qualify automatically. Having to play in the 2015 LPL Regional Qualifiers, EDG defeated Snake Esports 2-0 and then Invictus Gaming 3-1 to qualify for the 2015 World Championship.

At Worlds, EDG was put in a group with former MSI rivals SK Telecom T1 as well as H2k-Gaming and Bangkok Titans. Despite a few shaky games, EDG only lost their two games against SKT and won their other four, advancing to the knockout stage. They would face Fnatic in the Quarterfinals and despite subbing out AmazingJ in favor of Koro1, EDG was defeated 0-3 and finished 4th-8th.

Season 6

EDG had a rough start to the 2016 LPL Spring Split, playing several games without ClearLove. They were however able to bounce back, finishing 2nd in Group B, slightly behind Royal Never Give Up. In the playoffs, EDG was able to sweep Snake Esports 3-0 and then won automatically against Qiao Gu Reapers due to QG forfeiting the match. In the finals, EDG faced off against Royal Never Give Up and despite EDG being the favorites going into the match, they lost 1-3 and finished in 2nd place, failing to qualify for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational. Once summer came, EDG was placed in Group A of the 2016 LPL Summer Split. This split would be the start to EDG's resurgence as the team finished with an undefeated 16-0 regular season. In the 2016 LPL Summer Playoffs EDG would defeat Team WE 3-2 in the semifinals, setting them up for a rematch against Royal Never Give Up. In clean fashion, EDG was able to defeat RNG in a 3-0 sweep and reclaim the LPL championship while also qualifying for the 2016 World Championship as China's #1 seed.

At Worlds, Deft and EDG were grouped against H2k-Gaming, ahq e-Sports Club and INTZ e-Sports and finished as #2 seed after losing the tiebreaker match against H2k. They were then seeded against ROX Tigers in the bracket stage and lost the series 1-3. After Worlds, EDG made an announcement that Deft will be leaving the team after the 2016 Demacia Cup, which they won after beating IMay in the Finals. On November 30th, KT Rolster announced that Deft will be joining the team as the starting AD Carry for 2017 Spring together with Smeb, Score, PawN and Mata.
