UPDATE Nov. 20: T1 announced that they're parting ways with jungler Choi "Ellim" El-lim. As one of the three junglers on T1's 2021 roster, Ellim did get some stage time early in the season. However, as T1's starting line-up got stabilized, Ellim stayed on the bench for the majority of 2021. T1 also announced that he's set to join another team in the LCK, which later revealed to be Afreeca Freecs via their announcement.
On Nov. 16, T1 announced that they’re parting ways with jungler Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan. T1 said that they “truly appreciate his contribution to the team and wish him the best of luck in the future.” Along with Cuzz, Ryu "Hoit" Ho-seong was also released.
Cuzz started his professional career in 2016 in Longzhu Gaming (Kingzone DragonX, DRX). In 2019, he joined SK Telecom T1 and contributed to the team with a stable performance. Especially, in his first season in SK Telecom T1, Cuzz won the spring season championship and became the finals MVP.
Hoit debuted in DAMWON Gaming (DWG KIA) in 2017, and competed for the starting spot with Cho "BeryL" Geon-hee. After he left DWG, Hoit joined T1. Although he appeared on the main roster in the latter half of the 2021 LCK summer season, he wasn't able to play in any games.
T1 concluded the year 2021 as the runner-up of the LCK and with a top 4 finish at the World Championship. They recently released bot laner Park “Teddy” Jin-seong as well. Besides Cuzz and Teddy, the living legend Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok’s contract also expires today.
