Featured Match: ROX Tigers vs KT Rolster

League Championship Korea’s Spring Split throws two impressive League of Legends teams together right from the getgo as the new-look KT Rolster and equally new-look ROX Tigers face off. The two most recently saw action at the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup in November, although the rosters bare little resemblance to the teams that competed there.

Back then, KT Rolster went down in the quarterfinals to Kongdoo Monster, and ROX Tigers powered on through to the very end, smashing the very same Kongdoo Monster 3:1 in the finals and taking home $34,000 in prize money. But as we said, both teams have had an almost complete roster change since then, even changing their coaches, which means that aside from the names, almost nothing about this matchup is what you’d expect. It’s anybody’s game and we can’t wait to see what happens! Place those bets!
