Who is T1 Keria?
Keria started off on the academy team for DragonX in 2019 before making the jump to the main roster in the support position. He showed off his young talent, making it to the 2020 World Championship with DRX alongside Deft and Chovy, only to be eliminated by the eventual World Champions DAMWON Gaming.
- Keep up with Keria and the 2021 World Championship!
In 2021, he made the move to T1, where he became the starting support player. He has been one of the most consistent players throughout the year, and his solid play has helped T1 secure a spot as the third LCK seed at this year's World Championship.
Player of the Month Stats
T1 was placed in Group B alongside EDG, DFM and 100T. Even though T1 did have a stumble in the group stage – their first game against EDG – the team bounced back thanks to Keria and Canna in the top lane. Keria has shown versatility throughout the tournament, playing Yuumi, Thresh and Lulu, and his playmaking has helped T1 secure a semifinal berth.

Why the Player of the Month Award for T1 Keria?
As mentioned, T1 would not have played the way they did if it weren’t for Keria. He is a young player with great mechanics, but after Faker, the player with the most experience. He’s one of the best support players we’ve seen in a long time, and the variance in his champion pool makes him quite threatening.
- Does T1 have a chance against DAMWON KIA in the semifinals?
He isn’t afraid to leave his ADC on an island to go roam, making aggressive plays when needed. He has been an integral part of T1’s success throughout the tournament, and that is why he has been crowned the Player of the Month of October.
