The Korea Telecom Chief Executive Officer, Hwang Chang-Guy, is currently facing arrest for his alleged illegal donations to political campaigns. The current impact of the situation on Korea Telecom is so far unknown. The real question though is, “What will happen to the Korea Telecom League of Legends team?”
The KT Rolster LoL team is a well accomplished team that has a lot of experience in the League of Legends professional scene. The team originally came onto the Korean scene as a superteam ready to face up to the legendary team, SK Telecom, and bring in a new era of KT Rolster. Since the formation of the Korean superteam the roster has only disappointed in a series of dissapointing matches versus SKT. KT Rolster has however managed to attain some impressive titles in the Korean Scene and achieving some decent international placing.
The recent letdowns from the roster seems to hint at the possibility that the team might want to disband. The roster has been together since 2012 and players of that caliber will want to achieve the best of the best. KT Rolster has a lot of talented players and it would not be surprising if they disbanded to go off and play for different teams to see if they could make things work in seperate teams. These talented players are now probably considering offers from other organizations looking to greatly improve their team with talented additions. The team might also be potentially looking to play under another organization but that seems unlikely considering the results for the past 6 years.
After what has conspired with the CEO of Korea Telecom things seem to be being tipped in the direction of a split with the name Korea Telecom after the incident in upper management. Hopefully the talented players of KT Rolster will find another home in the massive League of Legends scene.
