    A true Wildcard team, they came into the 2016 League of Legends World Championships as heavy underdogs. Most considered them in the bottom two of the 16 teams represented at the tournament, right alongside fellow Wildcard INTZ e-Sports.

    ROX GorillA: ‘It’s definitely not the case that Korea will for sure win the World Championship.’

    The ROX Tigers were supposed to dominate Group A at the 2016 League of Legends World Championships. Support player Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon says the competition was something the Korean roster wasn’t quite ready for.
