Just before the start of the League of Legends World Championships, SK Telecom T1, or just “T1” as it is also known now, has officially unveiled its brand new logo.

The organization has dropped its long-standing logo, which featured a red T1 with wings inside of a red circle, to a new, sleeker, to the point logo with no reference to SK telecom.

The logo was unveiled in a brand new trailer, which starts with SKT remembering the last time the organization appeared at Worlds. After the infamous loss to Samsung Galaxy at Worlds 2017, SKT didn’t qualify for Worlds 2018 at all the next year. This year, the team secured the first seed this Summer to make their return.

The trailer also features a ton of T1 players, including superstar mid-laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, before revealing the new logo at the end.

T1 begins its Worlds campaign in the group stage against another favorite of the tournament, the LEC’s Fnatic, in the first game on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 7am CT. The squad will look to begin its road to the Summoners Cup all over again. This time, hopefully for them, with a happier ending.
