Image Via LiquipediaT1, who had a decent showing in the first season, has not lived up to their expectations in official matches since they replaced JaCkky for 23savage. The team was underwhelming at the Singapore Major and have now already lost their second series in the second season. They still need to go up against the likes of TNC Predator, Fnatic, and OB.Neon, so Kuku and the rest of T1 need to revisit their plans and strategy quickly. They play their next series against TNC Predator on May 1, 2021.
