T1 is a team that works hard to change their jerseys, each international season they have a new color. MSI 2023 is no exception, T1 changed to a uniform inspired by SKT T1 2015.
T1 invests a lot in their image, especially their jerseys are almost always renewed every international season. Even at Worlds 2022 last year, T1 had 2 uniforms, one white and one black. Coming to the new MSI 2023, T1 of course also “changed clothes” and this time it is white – dark blue.
The shirt has a white body with dark blue chest and shoulder lines, looks quite beautiful and youthful, but the red T1 logo seems a bit out of place with the two colors mentioned above. This new shirt is reminiscent of SKT T1 from 2015 which also has a white and blue jacket with similar colors and designs.
However, MSI 2015 was not a happy memory for SKT T1 or Faker when they lost to EDG from LPL right in the final with a score of 3-2. At that time, Faker started his competitive career not too long ago when he was just a 19-year-old boy, when the results were not as expected, Faker mused sadly, making fans feel pity.
T1’s runner-up has been unusually strong for more than 1 year, even many people awarded T1 the title of “second runner-up” when they had 5 consecutive losses in the finals, adding the T-shirts associated with unhappy memories are causing fans to worry that history at MSI 2015 will repeat.
T1 is receiving a lot of doubt after suddenly losing heavily to GEN in the Finals of the LCK Spring 2023 after having an early journey to the finals. In the face of many criticisms and doubts, MSI 2023 will be an opportunity for T1 to give the strongest answer about the strength of this team.
