KT’s LoL Team Rolster on AfreecaTV!

KTRolster_01

AfreecaTV and KT Rolster have partnered up to bring you the live streams of one of the best League of Legends teams in the world. Smeb, Score, Pawn, Deft, and Mata are all set to begin live-streaming on AfreecaTV. Their first official broadcast will be at 7:00am PDT on March 24th.

 

As part of a new esports venture called “New Media esports”, AfreecaTV has furthered their investment in League of Legends related content. Over a year ago, AfreecaTV entered the scene with a LoL team of its’ own and has also begun producing the LoL Challengers Korea for 2017. Now, with their partnership with KT, fans will be able to get up close and personal with some of the best players in the world.

 

Fans will now be able to watch KT play from a first-person view, seeing almost exactly how they play at such a high level. However, they will also be able to directly chat with them and get to know them on a personal level. Rolster members have expressed their excitement in being able to reach out to their fans on a broader scale and possibly show their fans a side of that they weren’t able to before.

Diva Cup Interview

We interviewed a couple of our Diva Cup ladies with some fun questions!

Make sure to check them in Afreecatv’s first ever Diva Cup tournament this Saturday @ 12PM PST on Allaryce’s channel: http://afreeca.tv/36887292

Noveastar – Zerg – Diamond 2: https://twitter.com/Hush_NoveaStar

Midastouch – Protoss – Diamond 2: https://twitter.com/MidasTouchSC2

Koshkii – Protoss – Diamond 1: https://twitter.com/KoshkiiSC

Kyuubi – Zerg – Master 2

Who is your favorite starcraft player of all time?

Novea: Jaedong!! But current player Dark!

Midastouch: Hard one. I would say MarineKing, $O$, an Scarlett. MKP for the sassiness, the haircute and because he’s the first pro I heard about. $O$ for the builds and because he was so funny when I met him. Scarlett because shes’s strong and classy.

Koshkii: WhiteRa. Even though he hasn’t played competitively in a long time, his “special tactics” and his positivism in SC2  still sticks with me. More GG more skill. 🙂

Kyuubi: Snute.

What is your favorite food?

Novea: Sushi!!!

Midastouch: I could eat pancakes everyday.

Koshkii: Toasted Ravioli.

Kyuubi: Pizza.

What is your memorable moment or biggest achievement in Starcraft 2?

Novea: Getting to go to South Korea and visit AfreecaTV!!!

Midastouch: I’ve had the chance to do so many cool stuff – events, LANs, articles, streams, and tournaments. But the thing I loved the most was writing a battle rap where top french players diss each other.

Koshkii: Reaching Masters League for the first time was really awesome. I also met my husband through the game and I am so glad I did (even if he is Zerg)!

Kyuubi: WCS 2016

Which player do you think will win the Diva Cup?

Novea: Miyako.

Midastouch: I don’t know the brackets but is Miyako is in a good day she can crush us.

Koshkii: Wyscion for sure! I’ve watched hers stream and she’s got some serious skill.

Kyuubi: Wyscion or Miyako

What is your favorite unit in Starcraft 2?

Novea: Mutalisks!!

Midastouch: My favorite unit is the holy Protoss Mothership. Symbolically, it’s unconditional love and perfection. D Kim if you read be, bring back the vortex. Oracles and sentries kick ass too.

Koshkii: Definitely the Immortal. I have so much fun using them in timing attacks and cheeses.

Kyuubi: Hydralisk.

What race do you think is OP?

Novea: None, I think Blizzard does a great job with balance.

Midastouch: They have been periods of unbalance in the past but I’m not sure if there is an OP race right now. Zerg always meant troubles for me, but it’s just my mediocre understanding of the race.

Koshkii: I don’t think any race is exactly OP, but I definitely struggle with PvT. Their multipronged drops make me upset.

Kyuubi: I don’t think, that any race is OP, but I ‘like’ the oracle.

Game 1: APK Prince (1-0) vs Griffin (1-0): 0-0

APK PRINCE

GRIFFIN

Cube (Top) – Jayce Sword (Top) – Poppy
Hoglet (Jungle) – Reksai Yonghun (Jungle) – Elise
DO IT (Mid) – Syndra Rather (Mid) – Corki
DAN (ADC) – Jhin Force (ADC) – Miss Fortune
Nova (Support) – Tahm Kench Shield (Support) – Karma

APK Prince with the early game lead on Griffin with 5-2 in kills. Griffin desperately attempts to bring the game back into their favor by forcing a fight at Baron. They managed to pick up the buff, but APK Prince instantly answers back by killing off 4 of their members, further increasing the kill lead to 9-3.

While all seems bleak for Griffin, APK Hoglet (Reksai) & Nova (Tahm Kench) gets caught. With two members down from APK, Griffin aggressively pushes down mid and takes down the first inhibitor of the game!

Griffin wins a skirmish in APK’s jungle and ties the kill count to 9-9. Feeling the momentum, Griffin decides to attempt Baron with a member of APK down desipte being at 20-30% health. The plan backfires with APK Cube (Jayce) & Hoglet (Reksai) teleporting back into the fight, allowing other members of APK to catch up and get 3 kills. Kill lead now back in APK’s favor, 12-10.

APK picks up the Baron buff shortly after, along with the Elder Drake buff. They push in towards Griffin’s base, catches Griffin Force (Miss Fortune) & Griffin Shield (Karma) off guard and wins game 1!



Game 2: APK Prince (1-o) vs Griffin (1-o): 1-0

GRIFFIN

APK PRINCE

Sword – Nautilus Cube – Rumble
Yonghun – Khazix Hoglet – Reksai
Rather – Syndra DO IT – Ekko
Force – Ashe DAN – Varus
Shield – Taric Nova – Tahm Kench

Griffin learned from their mistakes last game, and did not want to give an early lead to APK. Griffin Yonghun (Khazix) heads top and secures first blood on Cube (Rumble). Within 13 minutes of the game, they increase their kill lead to 4-1.

A team fight breaks out in the bottom river. Griffin’s Khazix gets poked down by Varus arrows, leaving him at 30% health before the fight even starts. He gets caught, and dies without being able to deal any damage despite being 4-1. Griffin’s Ashe walks up from bottom lane to help, gets intercepted by APK’s Ekko and instantly dies. APK cleans up 2 more, and ties the kill count to 5-5.

Another team fight in the middle lane at Griffin’s tower. APK Cube (Rumble) times his ult poorly, and deals no damage whatsoever due to APK Shield’s (Taric) ult. With APK’s main AOE damage gone, Griffin easily wins the fight 4 for 1 and pushes towards APK’s base. Griffin scores an ACE, after another poor timing from APK Cubes ult. With the superior CC team composition, allowing various methods of engagement, Griffin takes the game convincingly. Tying the series to 1-1.



Game 3: APK Prince (1-o) vs Griffin (1-o): 1-1

APK PRINCE

GRIFFIN

Cube – Poppy Sword – Maokai
Hoglet – Reksai Yonghun – Elise
DO IT – Corki Rather – Syndra
DAN – Varus Force – Miss Fortune
Nova –  Malzahar Shield – Tahm Kench


The final match for these two teams, currently undefeated at 1-0. Griffin gets the lead with Rather (Syndra) picking up a double kill and securing the first dragon. APK working to get the game back into their favor, initates a dive at Griffin’s bot lane tower and takes out Shield (Tahm Kench) and Force (Miss Fortune).

The first team fight occurs 17 minutes in. APK easily comes out on top getting 3 for 0, allowing them to pick up the first Baron. APK is just completely dominating this game with an 8k gold lead. Griffin is unable to close the gap with APK using their lead to take objective after objective. APK easily overcomes Griffin’s last stand, wins game 3 and takes the match, 2-1.
