T1 – Statistics & current form
The record champion and triple defending champion of the LCK, T1, was once again a top favorite this summer. Under coach “Kim” the success of the three-time world champion returned and the departure of “Clid” and “Khan” did not seem to have weakened T1. T1 dominated Spring 2020 with the experienced “Cuzz” and the young “Canna”.
In the summer, however, T1 seems to be challenged because there are currently three teams in front of the defending champion.
Can T1 still attack the top of the table?
The group for “Faker” has already suffered four defeats, as many as in the entire pre-season. T1 has only seven victories so far and is thus clearly behind the front-runner DragonX (11 successes). A bright spot is definitely top lanner “Canna”, who is getting better and better and has already received seven MVP awards in summer 2020. The macro game T1 is a major construction site. The record champion has the longest average season of all LCK teams. In addition, T1 is in all important categories, such as the gold difference per minute, behind the top trio.
Does T1 stumble against KT?
In summer 2020 it will be extremely difficult for T1 to attack the top of the table again. But against KT, the role of favorites is quite justified. In the first leg a few weeks ago, T1 won 2-0 and even if the record champions are very inconsistent, a loss to KT is unlikely.
On the last matchday, T1 lost a card against penultimate Hanwha Life, so a single win for KT is possible. In the game T1 against KT Rolster, a 2-1 success of the record champions seems to be a good prediction. The odds for this tip are 3.25.

Will KT Rolster make the jump into the playoffs again?
In spring, KT turned up especially in the season finale, and marched to fourth place. This is not to be expected for this season because KT lacks consistency. A fitting example is the surprising 2-1 triumph over the previously undefeated DragonX in week four, followed by a 0-2 defeat against sandbox a few days later. The playoffs are possible, but Sandbox and Afreeca Freecs are strong rivals and KT must not afford to make mistakes.

Nevertheless, the group shows positive values in the “Early Game” categories First Blood (60.7%), as well as heralds and dragons after 15 minutes.
