Yet another prestigious Esports organization is looking to enter King’s Canyon for a slice of the Battle Royale pie.
The Battle Royale/Hero Shooter fusion Apex Legends, has drawn the attention of many top Esports teams and organizations. From TSM to Cloud9, to NRG Esports and 100 Thieves, everyone is joining. Apex Legends’ Hero Shooter aspects give it far more potential as a long-lasting competitive Esport than rival Fortnite, so it makes sense that everyone would want to join in. And now another Esports juggernaut is joining the fray.

T1 Esports, a joint venture between American company Comcast Spectator, and Korean telecommunications chaebol SK Telecom T1 is one of the biggest Esports organizations in the world. T1 Esports is a subsidiary of SK Sports, which comprises all of SK Telecom’s sporting ventures.
These guys are some of the most legendary gamers in Korea, having been active for nearly two decades. They have mostly made names for themselves in popular Esports games such as Starcraft 1, Starcraft 2, and League of Legends. To give you an idea of how good these guys are, they’ve won the League of Legends World Championship several times. If I listed how many first-place finishes T1 Esports has achieved in League of Legends and Starcraft ½, we’d be here all day.
The Esports mega-team is now looking to dominate the competitive Esports team. Don’t think that just because T1 Esports is a bit out of their element that they won’t be able to be a force to be reckoned with in tournaments to come. T1 Esports is already recruiting players for their Apex Legends team and should have a full roster by summertime.
This is all the more reason for Respawn Entertainment to kick their Esports efforts into overdrive.
