[LCK] T1 at the center of controversy again, Choi Sung-hoon’s choice to be tested.
With the controversial T1 needing more victory, GM Choi Sung-hoon’s ability has been put to the test at the front of the team’s operation.
T1 has been at the center of many issues since the replacement of the coaching staff of both Dae-in and Lee Jae-min on the 15th. In the second game of the fifth day of the fifth week of LCK on the 11th, T1 lost 0-2 to Nongshim, and the coaching staff was replaced quickly. GM Choi Sung-hoon proposed to CEO Joe Marsh to replace the coaching staff, acting coach Son Seok-hee and coach Kim Ji-hwan, and T1 accepted the offer and reported the replacement to the two on the 12th, the very next day.
The replacement, which was announced on the 15th, has caused huge repercussions not only for T1 but also for League of Legend eSports, and attention was focused on whether the replacement of Son Seok-hee and Kim Ji-hwan coaching staff would work. Fortunately, T1 caught its rival KT 2-0 last year and even DK, the winner of this year’s LCK, seemed to calm down the mess caused by the controversy over the replacement 파워볼사이트
However, as Jisoo’s remarks were belatedly publicized, T1 was again at the center of controversy. Finally, on the 21st, T1 announced its own action against its streamer “Jisoo Girl” Park Ji-soo through SNS. He made inappropriate remarks in cheering broadcasts to support the other team twice as a team’s streamer, and he acknowledged it and decided to cut his salary by 50% and suspend the broadcast for 10 days. The team won two consecutive victories, but once again, the T1 was in a chaotic mood.
T1, which is in fourth place with 7 wins and 5 losses and 4 losses, immediately showed the results of the coaching staff replacement announced by GM Choi Sung-hoon, including the summer playoffs, and even the LOL Cup, and the players have to make good results in the rest of the game. T1 is set to face the African Freecs this Thursday and Liv Sandbox on Saturday. The two teams ahead of this week’s match were both defeated in the first round. T1 needs to win both African-Sandboxes to create a different trend than before.
Both GM and T1 Choi Sung-hoon are at an important crossroads. In particular, GM Choi Sung-hoon came to the forefront as he held a press conference himself at a time when the team was shaken by the chaotic atmosphere, following the replacement of coaching staff and the sanddown of “Elim” Choi Elim. Whether GM’s position will show his ability at LCK, which is unfamiliar, is interested in the remaining six games in T1’s summer.
