As the League of Legends competitive scene gears up for the 2024 season, KT Rolster makes a significant move by signing two former world champions, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon. This strategic acquisition positions KT Rolster as a formidable contender in the upcoming LCK season.
Post-Worlds 2023 Frenzy: The Transfer Market Heats Up
Following T1’s victory at Worlds 2023, the League of Legends transfer market has been bustling with activity. Teams like Hanwha Life and Gen. G have already showcased their impressive lineups for the upcoming season, but KT Rolster’s recent move has grabbed significant attention in the LCK landscape.
Deft and Pyosik: A Reunion of Champions
Deft and Pyosik, each having a challenging year, are now set to reunite under the KT Rolster banner. Pyosik returns to Korea after his stint in North America with Team Liquid, where despite a promising start, he faced an early exit from Worlds 2023.
Deft, after securing a spot in the World Championship with DPlus Kia following a mixed performance in the LCK Summer, is now ready to chase another title with KT Rolster.
Potential Additional Signings
Rumors are also circulating about the potential signing of Cho “BeryL” Geon-hee, which could reunite the DRX’s lower lane duo that famously made a miracle run at Worlds 2022. Currently, Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong is the only confirmed player maintaining his position as the mid-laner for KT Rolster.
Anticipation for KT Rolster’s Complete Roster
The League of Legends community eagerly awaits further announcements from KT Rolster as they finalize their roster for the 2024 LCK season. With the addition of world-class talents like Deft and Pyosik, the team is poised to be a major player in the upcoming competitive year.
