In a strategic move to safeguard their World Championship-winning roster, T1 successfully renewed the contracts of Choi “Zeus” Woo-je, Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong, and Ryu “Keria” Min-seok, as well as coach Im "Tom" Jae-hyeon. The official announcement came through T1's social media channels on Nov. 23, just four days after their historic fourth World Championship.
Amidst the onset of the stove league, which commenced a mere two days after T1 clinched their fourth World Championship, the contract expiration of Zeus, Gumayusi, and Keria drew significant attention. Understandably so, as all three players would garner interest from multiple teams.
Zeus, Gumayusi, and Keria, each in their own right, are assets that could make teams salivate. Zeus, the meteoric rising star, asserted dominance in the top lane within just three years of his debut. Gumayusi's international tournament prowess and distinctive showmanship have elevated him to a star. Keria has solidified his standing as one of the best supports ever.
Having swiftly secured the services of the esteemed coach, Kim “kkOma” Jeong-gyun, who shared the golden era with them, T1 has revealed their determination for the 2024 season. Successfully renewing the contracts of the remaining trio, who played a pivotal role in securing the championship at Worlds 2023, T1 embarks on a journey to continue their dominance in the competitive scene under the guidance of these revered members.
