Overview   Skins    


SK Telecom T1 is a Korean a professional gaming team based in South Korea. Previously, the SK Telecom organization sponsored two sister teams, S and K.

It was originally founded as a StarCraft: Brood War team under the name Orion in 2002 by Lim Yo-Hwan (Boxer), regarded by many as the greatest eSports player of all time, and has included stars such as Kim Taek-Young (Bisu), Jung Myung-Hoon (Fantasy) and Choi Yun-Sung (ILoveOov - who is formerly the coach of SKT1's StarCraft II team). Its League and StarCraft teams have made efforts to support each other publicly, as cameras caught Faker and the rest of the League team attending one of the StarCraft team's Proleague matches against Jin Air.[1]

History

Season 3
In December 2012, SK Telecom acquired the roster of Eat Sleep Game, with a roster consisting of Reapered, H0R0, MighTiLy, UandME, and StarLast. See the history of that team at SK Telecom T1 S (originally SK Telecom T1, then SK Telecom T1 #1). In February 2013, the organization created a new roster, which consisted of Faker, bengi, Piglet, PoohManDu, and Impact. See the history of that team at SK Telecom T1 K (originally SK Telecom T1 #2). On November 12th, the sister teams were renamed from #1 and #2 to S and K, respectively. Though it was initially known as SK Telecom's secondary team, K outperformed S, winning the Season 3 World Championship and then having a perfect season in Champions Winter 2013-2014.

Season 4
SK Telecom competed in LoL Masters 2014. The organization had a 6-0 set record in the round robin, with a 14-4 game record. In the playoffs, they were seeded directly into the finals but then lost 0-3 to Samsung Galaxy, placing second overall.

Pre-Season 5
In November 2014, it was announced that Korean teams could no longer have two separate rosters, and SK Telecom T1's teams disbanded, reforming a single team simply called SK Telecom T1. As with all other OGN teams, they would have a 10-member roster. The team was invited to play in 2015 LoL Champions Korea (LCK). On December 2nd, a roster was announced for the preseason that included MaRin, Impact, bengi, Easyhoon, Faker, Bang, Wolf, and Piccaboo. Of these players, Piccaboo was the only new addition; the other seven players had previously competed on either S or K.

Season 5

On May 2nd, SK Telecom T1 won 1st place in 2015 LCK Spring with a score of 3-0 in a best of 5 series against the GE Tigers. The team will be representing Korea in the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational that will be held in Tallahassee, Florida. After dominating the LCK Summer Split and qualifying for the 2015 World Championship, SKT finish the tournament in 1st place, winning the title of world champions for the second time as an organization. SKT's Mid, Jungle and Coach (Faker, Bengi and KkOma) become the first professional League of Legends players to win more than one World title.

Season 6
The team had a good start in 2016 as they have won IEM X World Championship after beating Fnatic (3-0). They finished 3rd in the regular split of the LCK but won the entire tournament after dominating ROX Tigers in a 3-1 victory. SK Telecom T1 will then proceed winning the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational against Counter Logic Gaming (3-0).

In summer, the team placed 2nd in the regular split then lose to KT Rolster (2-3) in the playoffs. However, KT Rolster failed to beat ROX Tigers in the finals, thus giving SKT the chance to be one of the representatives of LCK for the 2016 World Championship which they have won (for the 3rd time) after beating ROX Tigers (3-2) in the semifinals and ending the series 3-2 against Samsung Galaxy in the finals. Moving forward, the team had to face ROX Tigers again in the semifinals of the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup where the team's effort fell short and losing the best of 3 series (0-2).

On November, the team announced the departure of bengi and Duke while the rest of the roster renewed their contracts with the organization. Few days later, the team announced that they have signed Peanut as their Jungler, who will be playing alongside Blank. This was followed by the announcement of Huni joining the team in place of Duke.
