The organization from South Korea was not initially called T1. It happened in 2012 when the sponsor appeared and the League of Legends roster was signed. Since then, the organization has become one of the most successful in this discipline, having achieved victories at many LoL Tournaments. It has not missed the main trophy. The team became the world champion three times with different rosters, holding the record in this discipline. Let’s take a look at the top five victories of T1 in history.
The victory over Royal Club at World Championship 3
Before the Worlds was created, the world final was called like that. The first victory at the World Championship was achieved in the match against Royal Club. T1 confidently outplayed the opponent on all maps. The Korean team picked Jax three times, having relied heavily on this champion. The victory brought not just the championship title but a record-breaking million dollars as winnings.
The victory over KOO Tigers at Worlds 2015
The second title was achieved in 2015. T1 faced another South Korean team – KOO Tigers. Faker’s team was the favorite of the match because it had made it to the final through the upper bracket. The status was secured, having achieved the final victory. T1 lost only one map out of four played maps.
The victory over Samsung Galaxy at Worlds 2016
T1 managed to become champions in the following year. This time, there also was the South Korean derby but it could not be called an easy one. The match against Samsung Galaxy was extremely tough. At first, T1 opened the score, having won two maps. They were one step away from the third championship trophy. On the third map, Samsung Galaxy managed to come back, having won the long map that lasted 71 minutes. This had a positive impact on their morale, so T1 lost the next map too. As a result, everything was decided on the last map where Samsung Galaxy was weaker. T1 did not just become the world championships but they earned the record-breaking prize that was more than two million dollars.
