SK telecom T1 is the best team in the history of League of Legends. With three World Championships under their belt from 2013, 2015 and 2016, no team comes close to their level of dominance. After a stellar run in 2015 that ended in their second title, SKT struggled to start 2016. They righted the ship by IEM Katowice, finishing first in Champions Spring 2016 and winning the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational.
They hit another snag when they failed to reach the finals in Champions Summer 2016, falling to kt Rolster. But the SKT of old showed up right away at the 2016 World Championship, and Faker led the team to its second straight Worlds win. Entering 2017 with a roster somehow even more packed with talent, anything short of another World Championship would be a disappointment for SKT.
