Esports: 'Zeus' relief as T1 book MSI Rumble Stage spot

South Korean outfit T1 have become the latest League of Legends side to book their place in the Rumble Stage of the Mid-Season Invitational and their top laner Choi "Zeus" Woo-je admits he's relieved the team have progressed.

In their first match in the Rumble Stage of the MSI, T1 are 8/15 to beat Royal Never Give Up, who can be backed at 11/8 to prevail.

"Zeus" was talking after his side recorded their fifth win of the tournament against DetonatioN FocusMe to progress to stage two of the Mid-Season Invitational.

Six teams in Rumble Stage

They are now set to take part in the Rumble Stage, which features six teams in total in a group format.

The teams which place in the top four positions in the section will then move to stage three - the knockout phase - where they will compete in semi-finals and a final.

T1 are enjoying an excellent 2022 so far, having already secured the LCK Spring Split earlier in the year, finishing the initial phase with an 18-0 win-loss record before overcoming Kwangdong Freecs and Gen.G in the playoff stage.

That said, top laner "Zeus", who came all the way through the T1 Academy before joining the first team, is relieved that the Rumble Stage spot is secured and insists they will have to continue working hard to compete with some strong sides in the latter stages of the event.


Speaking after his side's victory at the Mid-Season Invitational, "Zeus" said: "I'm relieved that we were able to lock in our spot so quickly.

"There are a lot of strong teams that made it to the Rumble Stages - I'll make sure to work harder and win."
