T1 launched her two League of Legends Head coaches Daeny and Zefa after only seven months with the organization.
“We are making this change at this stage in an effort to activate our team’s chances of success with eight matches remaining,” T1 said in a statement via the team’s Twitter account.
After winning the Worlds 2020 title while leading the coaching staff at DAMWON Gaming last year, Daeny and Zefa were brought into the T1 coaching staff for the 2021 season in hopes of changing the organization. In 2020, T1 missed out on League of Legends World Championship for the third time in the organization’s history.
Now, after five weeks of playing at the 2021 LCK Summer Split, T1 is fifth with a record 5-5. The team ranks behind Gen.G, DWG KIA, Nongshim RedForce and Afreeca Freecs in the LCK standings. Together, the coaching duo set a win-loss record of 17-13 across T1 matches this year. In terms of singles games, T1 set a 57 percent win rate in 2021.
“We still have high hopes of finishing strong in LCK and earning a place in the Worlds,” T1 said in its statement.
T1 has not made an announcement on who will be driving league The team coaching staff is moving forward. T1 will be back on the LCK stage in a few hours, as the team prepares to start this week’s roster against long-time rival KT Rolster.
