In the 2021 season, both Daeny and Zefa joined T1, with whom they saw middling results, finishing 4th in Spring Split. After a slow start in Summer, followed by inconsistent results, both coaches were dismissed from their position, parting ways in the middle of the season.
DWG KIA’s next match will take place today, up against the Afreeca Freecs who will be vying for a spot at the top of the standings in order to secure playoffs.
