KT Rolster jungler Go “Score” Dong-bin identified one player in League Champions Korea who could be his rival in the coming summer split.
Score told Daily eSports’ Lee Yoon-ji that even though a number of new junglers have entered the LCK, such as Ever8 Winners’ Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong and Longzhu Gaming’s 17-year-old prodigy Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan, his sights are on Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, SK Telecom T1’s jungler.
“I don’t think there is (a rival among the new junglers),” he said. “Of the players that played in the last split, I think Peanut would be my rival.”
KT Rolster entered the LCK spring split with hype it would be the “super team” and a worthy challenger to SKT. But KT lost both meetings against the reigning League of Legends world champions during the regular split and was swept 3-0 in the spring final. Still, KT managed to place second in the split, an impressive feat, despite being “a brand new team with the changes the team saw.”
KT added a new support player, Lee “Chance” Chan-dong, for the summer split, and when Score was asked what he thought about his new teammate, Score said “he’s rather introverted in the gaming house but he’s much more active in-game,” while adding some pressure by saying “he also needs to play well (with us.)”
