T1 Bursts Into Wild Rift With New Team

by in League of Legends | Jul, 6th 2021

Despite having no announcement for a Korean Wild Rift esports scene, T1 sign a team for the future. In fact, T1 is the second squad in the South Korea region to recruit a Wild Rift team, right after KT Rolster. This could be an incredible team, but it’s just nice to see the Wild Rift scene grow. Some people have said that the game is already dying, but refuse to offer proof for that. We’ve seen it grow on the American side of things too, with Cloud9 seeking out a team in a unique way.  We’re still uncertain what the plans are for North America and South Korea, but the orgs in that area are planning ahead.

Will An Announcement Come Soon?

No official announcement has been made, but T1 is, let’s be honest, one of the biggest esports orgs in South Korea. Their League of Legends team is the stuff of legends and has won championships across all of esports. This makes us think that either T1 knows something we don’t and are signing a Wild Rift team early, or are simply convinced that the time is coming. Heck, it’s not even T1’s first move into mobile esports, with the Xenon PUBG Mobile team. 

The current T1 Wild Rift Team consists of:

  • JJong (Baron Lane)
  • JY (Jungle
  • Core (Mid)
  • Haru (ADC)
  • PenGuin (Support)

T1 also made the announcement on Twitter:

We are happy to announce that we have formed T1’s Wild Rift team. Please show the team your support!

It’s very exciting to see big orgs embrace this new Riot Games title. It says a lot when some of the major players look at Wild Rift and see potential in it. We’ll keep an eye on the situation as it develops, and keep you up to date on the future of Wild Rift esports scenes for both Korea and North America.
