Mata joined KT Rolster at the end of 2016, along with Smeb, Pawn and Deft as part of KT’s initiative to build a “super-team” made out of best players in every position. Over the next two years, however, the super-team would have mixed results that would fall short of people’s expectations. KT was able to finally win LCK at 2018 Summer Split. However, the team never had international success – In 2018, when KT qualified to World Championship as the first seed of LCK, the team was eliminated by Invictus Gaming at the quarterfinals.

Mata’s departure might only be the beginning for a series of changes that might be coming to KT Rolster. The oldest member of the team, Score, is now of an age where he must consider Korean military service. Rumors have also suggested that KT may have difficulty keeping at least one of its bot-lane duo, Mata and Deft.
