T1 continues to be an outstanding team in 2022 Dota Pro Circuit, currently sitting in 2nd place in the Southeast Asian tournament. The organization is looking to sit on its own success, signing SEA legend Kim “QO” Sun Yeob as an analyst to help their roster improve.
QO was part of several deep runs at The International’s various loops with MVP Phoenix alongside current T1 coach Park “March” Tae-won.
Korean/Australian pro players took a long break Dota in 2018 after Immortals dropped the list. Most recently, he played for Team Oracle, a team he helped found in May 2019 before moving into a coaching role for the team.
Oracle has been mostly inactive since May 2020, with many of their players leaving to play for other teams like Nigma Galaxy SEA and 5ManMidas. This signing gives March some additional support when it comes to devising strategies for his players, while also bringing together one of the original Koreans. Dota duos again.
Now that Valve has canceled the 2022 DPC Winter Tour Major, T1 has a lot to fight for as it tries to outdo BOOM Esports for the top spot in Southeast Asia. If they can finish the regional tournament with wins over BOOM and Fnatic, Kuku and his team will take the top seed, earning $30,000 and 300 DPC points for entry into the Spring League.
