KT Rolster Roster 2018 Spring.png

KT Rolster is a Korean professional gaming organization based in South Korea. It is one of the eight KeSPA teams.

Before the Korean restructuring, KT fielded two sister teams, KT Rolster Arrows and KT Rolster Bullets which were created by the organization on October 10th, 2012.[1] It originally began as StarCraft: Brood War team KTF Magics and included among its stars a number of players who also became involved with League of Legends - coaches YellOw (Xenics Storm) and Reach (NaJin e-mFire) and casters/streamers Kim Dong Soo (Garimto) and Kang Min (Nal_Ra).

History

Season 3

On October 10th, 2012, KT Rolster created two teams for their League of Legends division, KT Rolster A and KT Rolster B. KTA was made up of Hiro, Vitamin, ReSEt, Zero, and Wall while KTB featured Ragan, KaKAO, Ryu, Score, and Mafa. The two teams combined in March for the OGN Club Masters where they placed third after losing 3-2 to MVP but beating CJ Entus 3-0. Star player of NaJin Black Sword, Maknoon, joined KTA in May of 2013 and the team was reformed around him as their center piece. Shortly afterwards, KTA was renamed to the KT Rolster Arrows and KTB was renamed to the KT Rolster Bullets. Unfortunately for KT, neither team was able to qualify for the Season 3 World Championship.

2014 Season

At the beginning of the season, the Arrows were restructured again to cope with the loss of Maknoon as the star. This new team featuring KaKAO, Rookie, Ssumday, Arrow, and Hachani were able to bring KT its first OGN Championship after they beat Samsung Blue 3-2 at HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014. Just prior to this they played in the SK Telecom LTE-A LoL Masters 2014 but placed fifth overall out of seven teams and missed playoffs. Both KT Rolster teams failed to qualify for the 2014 Season World Championship at the end of the season.

2015 Season

Changes to OGN rules that banned organizations from owning two teams forced the Arrows and the Bullets to merge for the 2015 season. KT Rolster fielded a roster featuring Ssumday, Score, Nagne, Arrow, and Hachani as the starting five. The team did not fair well in SBENU Champions Spring 2015 and placed fifth overall for the season, barely missing playoffs. KT did much better in the regular season of SBENU Champions Summer 2015, placing second behind a nearly undefeated SK Telecom T1 team. They made it to the finals of the playoffs but lost 3-0 to SKT. KT qualified for the finals of the 2015 Season Korea Regional Finals where they beat the Jin Air Green Wings 3-1 to qualify for the 2015 Season World Championship as the number three seed from Korea. KT was drawn into a group with LGD Gaming, Team SoloMid, and Origen. They ended with a 5-1 record and went on to play the KOO Tigers in the quarterfinals. They lost 3-1 and were knocked out of the tournament.

2016 Preseason

KT played in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup where they lost 2-1 in the semifinals to CJ Entus. Shortly afterwards, starting midlaner Nagne and support Piccaboo left the team. KT signed Fly, former mid of Young Glory, to replace Nagne, and two supports: Ignar from Incredible Miracle and Hachani, former coach of Rebels Anarchy.

2016 Season

During the LCK 2016 Spring Season, KT Rolster finished second place in the regular season with a 13-5 match record. Ignar would leave the team halfway through the season. Their regular season placement earned them a bye into the semi-finals of the Spring Playoffs, where they faced SK Telecom T1. Unfortunately, they were swept 3-0, ending their spring split with a third place finish.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Split, KT Rolster claimed third place in the regular season with a 13-5 series record, losing to SK Telecom T1 based on game score. This seeded them into the 2nd round of the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs, where they met Samsung Galaxy. KT had yet to drop a game to Samsung since the start of Season 5's LCK era, and this trend continued as they swept them 3-0. In the semifinals, they met SK Telecom T1 in the Telecom Wars, and this time they managed to reverse sweep them 3-2 to move onto the finals. In an epic set against the ROX Tigers, KT Rolster barely lost 3-2, losing out on Korea's first seed at Worlds, but giving them the highest seed for the Korea Regional Finals 2016. In a rematch against Samsung Galaxy where KT were heavily favored to make it out, Samsung managed to break a 19 game losing streak against KT to win the set 3-2 and take Korea's third seed, ending KT Rolster's season early.
