KT Rolster built a name for themselves in Korea through their strong objective control and individual laning talent. If their lanes went poorly, KT relied on their star junglers inSec and KaKAO to bail them out. Unfortunately for KT, their strategy faltered in the wake of inSec and KaKAO leaving to join teams in the LPL.
After years of playing second fiddle to SK telecom T1, KT Rolster knocked their rivals out of the 2016 LCK Summer Playoffs. However, KT lost to ROX in a closely contested LCK Finals match, forcing them to play in the Regional Qualifier, where they were knocked out by Samsung Galaxy. They'll be looking to break the curse and finally make a trip to Worlds in 2018.
