Back-to-back League of Legends world champion Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan will return to the organization that kickstarted his path to super stardom. On Monday, T1 announced that the legendary support has once again joined but, but as a streamer and content creator, rather than a player.
After leaving SKT in 2018 for a short one-year sting with the Turkish Supermassive, Wolf retired due to mental health reasons, having suffered from anxiety and depression for some time. Wolf hung the mouse as not just a two-time champion, but also a three-peat LCK winner and back-to-back MSI champion. Wolf was part of the legendary core of SK Telecom that dominated the scene between 2015 and 2017 and was together with bot laner Bae “Bang” Jun-sik made for one of the most consistent bot lane duos in Korean League of Legends history.
Wolf is the second major LoL streamer and content creator that T1 has signed, the other being legendary StarCraft bonjwa and SKT founder Lim “Boxer” Yo-hwan. Recently, the org also made moves into Riot Games’ FPS Valorant, signing Braxton “Brax” Pierce and Keven “AZK” Lariviere as its first two players.
