The Afreeca Freecs will be looking for consistency in 2017. During Champions Summer 2016, the team managed a 2-0 record against superpower SK telecom T1. They snuck into the playoffs after finishing 8-10, but were quickly defeated by Samsung Galaxy. The Freecs went on to play in the Regional Qualifier, where they took down Jin Air Green Wings in the first round. Unfortunately, Samsung Galaxy knocked them out of contention in a rematch.
