There are many ways to introduce Hyeokgyu “Deft” Kim: Ezreal fanatic, world class AD carry, veteran, hypercarry... Deft has been playing since 2013, earning accolades as a player who could pump out absurd amounts of damage thanks to his ability to duck, dodge, and weave through teamfights.
After the 2014 World Championship, Deft joined up with Edward Gaming, beginning an era of dominance where the team picked up a series of convincing victories. It started with the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring, and then continued into the 2015 LPL Spring Split, where EDG only dropped six games in total. From there, EDG picked up the top prize at the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational, winning a thrilling Bo5 series against SKTelecom T1, 3-2. Yet through it all, something has eluded Deft...he has yet to take home the greatest prize of all: the World Championship.
