After acquiring the service of Former Gen.G top laner Kim “Roach” Kang-hui, T1 has finally unveiled members of its 2020 roster ahead of the upcoming League of Legends LCK season.

T1 finally confirmed securing the signature of Roach for the squad after recent reports. The team had to go into a rebuilding process after failing to reach the finals of Worlds 2019, where it lost to G2 Esports in the semifinals.

The top laner will, therefore, replace the outgoing former T1 top laner Kim “Khan” Dog-ha on the squad.

Rookie, Kim “Canna” Chang-dong is on this year’s roster for T1 alongside Choi “Ellim” Ellim, Lee “Gumayushi” Min-hyung, and Choi “Kuri” Won-Yeong.

Gumayushi, who is the younger brother of Starcraft pro Lee “INnoVation “Shin Hyung, has been a part of T1 for some time. He was in the training academy of the side alongside Canna, Kuri, and Ellim. This is indeed a fresh start for the team with the promotion of the quartet to the main squad.

The players that departed from the team are Coach Kim “kkOma” Jeong-gyun, top laner Kim “Khan” Dong-ha, and jungler Kim “Clid” Tae-min. The ones that remain with the team after last week’s departures are mid laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, bot lane duo Park “Teddy” Jin-Seong, and Kim “Profit” Jun-Hyung.

T1 took to its Twitter page to announce the news: “We’re excited to announce that Kim “Canna” Chang-dong, Choi “Ellim” Ellim, Lee “Gumayushi” Min-hyung, and Choi “Kuri” Won-Yeong are called up to join the roster, along with Kim “Roach” Kang-hui who is joining the team this year. Please welcome our squad of young talent!”

Recall that T1 had been searching fora new top laner to complete their roaster. They looked to China’s LPL to finalize its roster courting former world champion Kang “TheShy” Seung-Lok, who vehemently turned down their offer having been T1’s first choice for the top lane position. According to him, turning down the offer was due to his two-year contract with Invictus Gaming.

With these fresh hands, it is hopeful that WT1 can turn their fortunes around and return with full force.
