Following recent speculation he’d be joining the side, former Gen. G top laner Kim “Roach” Kang-hui will officially replace former T1 top laner Kim “Khan” Dog-ha on the side.
Roach emerged onto the scene in team Najin e-mFire, before later playing for Kongdoo Monster and Gen.G Esports.
The other new additions are all young rookie players, including Kim “Canna” Chang-dong, Choi “Ellim” Ellim, Lee “Gumayushi” Min-hyung and Choi “Kuri” Won-yeong. The newbies have been promoted to the main roster after being part of T1’s training academy.

Overseeing the team as head coach is Kim “Kim” Jeong Soo, who has a breadth of experience winning Worlds in 2018 with Invictus Gaming and leading DAMWON Gaming.
The Korean team still stands as the only team to have won the World Championship title three times, becoming one of the most dominant forces in the League Of Legends scene.
This year however saw the team get eliminated by G2 Esports in the semi-finals, who were later trounced by FunPlus Phoenix in the Paris final.
