T1 kicked off its summer split campaign with a clean 2-0 victory over Hanwha Life Esports on Wednesday evening. The Korea JoongAng Daily sat down with Kim "Canna" Chang-dong after the game to hear his thoughts on T1's start to the split.
Esports is the new kid on the block in the global sports scene, and amongst the many Esports professional teams that are out there, T1 is that one team that everyone has heard of, whether they are fans of Esports or not...
It's easy to imagine that an Esports career is a simple thing. You get really good at a game, sign with a team and sit back and watch the millions roll in. In reality, Esports, like any other sport, isn't that simple. Canna knows that only too well.
In baseball there's the New York Yankees, in football there's Manchester United, in basketball there's the Los Angeles Lakers and in Esports there's T1. As pro gaming enters the mainstream, it's time to get to know the team that defines the sport.
