Today, like his teammate Heo “Pawn” Won-Seok, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-Kyu announced his free agency. Deft will be leaving KT Rolster after spending his last two years with the team. Deft won the most recent Summer LoL Champions Korea title and made it top 8 at the World Championship with KT Rolster.
Deft, also like PawN, has spent the last four years on EDward Gaming and KT Rolster, taking the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational, while making it to the world championship three times. Deft has never made it past top 8 at Worlds, but most notably lost to the eventual winners this year, Invictus Gaming. Despite that, he has won two domestic titles with both Samsung Blue in 2014 and KT Rolster in 2018 Summer.
As one of the best AD carries in the world, many teams will be knocking on Deft’s door, but there is still a chance he remains with KT Rolster after free agency is done and done. Moving forward, it is likely that he will join another team in Korea to fulfill his dream of winning Worlds.
