SK Telecom T1 may have been considered the favorites heading into the 2016 League of Legends World Championship, but the defending world champions were on the ropes in their semifinal match against the ROX Tigers.
Down 2-1 heading into Game 4, SKT elected to swap out their starting jungler Blank in favor of a seasoned veteran who spent most of the season riding the bench.
Already a two-time world champion, Bengi was supposedly over the hill. Where Blank started more than 80 games for SKT, Bengi had barely played 30, and the team lost about a third of those.
The community perception of Bengi was simple: his mechanics weren’t as good as they used to be and he couldn’t play Nidalee.
But Bengi was a world champion, and with everything on the line SKT needed a win. They needed a new strategy, a veteran voice to show them the path to victory.
They needed the player who brought them glory at every World championship they attended.
They needed Bengi.
This, is his story.
