KT Rolster is a Korean professional gaming organization based in South Korea. It is one of the seven KeSPA teams and is participating in OGN Club Masters.
Founded in 1999 as StarCraft: Brood War team KTF Magics, the team has a proud heritage especially in StarCraft. Labeled by some as the Real Madrid of Brood War, they featured the likes of Reach, future Xenics Storm coach Hong Jin-Ho (YellOw), Lee Yoon-Yeol (NaDa), Kang Min (Nal_rA) and Lee Young-Ho (Flash).
The organzation consists of KT Rolster Arrows and KT Rolster Bullets created on October 10th, 2012. In December 2nd, 2014, LoL Champions Korea was restructured, thus forcing Arrows and Bullets to form a single team. The initial roster for the upcoming 2015 Season include Ssumday, ikssu, Prime, Nagne, Edge, Arrow, Hachani and Fixer.
In 2015 Spring Split, the team finished 5th in the round robin stage and failed to qualify for the playoffs. In the round robin stage of the Summer Split, they ended at 2nd place with a 13W-5L record. They then qualified for the playoffs but lost to SK Telecom T1 and rounding up their Summer Split at 2nd. With the Championship Points the team earned over two splits, they were placed in the Final round of the gauntlet for 2015 LCK Regional Qualifiers. After beating Jin Air Green Wings, the team then qualified for the 2015 World Championship.
At Worlds, KT Rolster was placed in Group D along with LGD Gaming, Origen and Team SoloMid. They fortunately made it out as #1 seed from their group with a 5-1 standing, only dropping a game against the European team. In the bracket stage, however, KT was seeded against their fellow Koreans KOO Tigers. This ended their run for the Worlds trophy, as they lost to KOO in a 1-3 defeat.
Moving on, the team played their last tournament of the season which is the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup, where they won against CTU Pathos in the Quarterfinals but lost to CJ Entus in the Semifinals, thus ending at 3rd-4th place.Prior to the start of the 2016 Season, Fixer, Piccaboo, Edge and Nagne left the team. They then signed Fly and IgNar as starting Mid Laner and Support respectively. Hachani also re-joined the team as the Substitute Support after his short stint with Rebels Anarchy.
In 2016 LCK Spring, the team finished 2nd in the regular split. Moving to the playoffs, KT lost to long-time rival SK Telecom T1. In 2016 LCK Summer, both KT and SKT have a 13-5 standing but KT lost the head-to-head and were placed at #3 in the ranking. The team was also placed in the 2nd round of the gauntlet and were able to beat Samsung Galaxy. They then faced SKT in the 3rd round and overpowered their rivals, ending the series at 3-2. In the finals, however, KT had their most heartbreaking defeat against ROX Tigers. The series was tied 2-2 but in the 5th game, Score lost a 2hp Baron to Smeb, turning the game around and ending it with KT's defeat. This took their chance to make it straight to the 2016 World Championship.
Although the team has one more chance through Regional Qualifiers, they were still unable to make it as they lost to Samsung Galaxy. In their last tournament, which is the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup, KT finished at 5th-8th after losing to Ever in the Quarterfinals.
When the time for roster changes came, KT Rolster released both Ssumday and Fly, following Hachani and Arrow's departure from the team. With only Score left from their 2016 roster, KT rebuilt the team by signing Smeb, PawN, Deft and Mata.
