The T1 earned their way to MSI after an impressive League of Legends Championship Korea 2022 Spring Season performance in LCK 2022 Spring, from Oner’s heroic roams to impressive two-vs-two play from Guma and Ryu “Keria” Min-seok’s duo-vs-duo play, T1 emerged as an overwhelming force during this series.
Also, T1 set the second fastest game ever at an international event when their Upper Bracket Quarterfinals match against MAD Lions went as quickly as 16 minutes and 50 seconds. T1 quickly took control of the map to sweep MAD Lions without much difficulty.
