T1 had already entered the mobile esports scene with the signing of their PUBG Mobile roster earlier this year. And, with the signing of the COD Mobile roster, T1 has made it clear that they are taking mobile esports quite seriously.
1K Gaming, the roster which T1 has hired, had previously won the COD Mobile Korean National Championship to qualify for the COD Mobile World Championship, which is slated to be held in December this year. The team won the National Championship, winning nine rounds and dropping only three rounds on their way to the title. However, it will be interesting to see how they will fare at the world stage where the stakes and the competition will be much higher as compared to the nationals.
