SK Telecom T1 to Miss LCK Summer Playoffs

With their first map loss to Griffin, SK Telecom T1 will miss the 2018 Summer LCK Playoffs for the first time in 6 years.

Since SKT T1 lost Duke in the top lane they’ve been a team that’s rough around the edges. They found success last year making it to Worlds, but to say it was in usual SKT fashion would be a lie. They stumbled a lot finishing fourth last Summer Split but ultimately finishing second in the playoffs. That great run allowed them to make Worlds off of Championship points, but they won’t be so lucky this time.

Now that they’re eliminated SKT T1 will need to make an amazing Gauntlet run to qualify for Worlds 2018. It’s not out of the realm of possibility, but considering their problems as of late it would be incredible.
