KT Aming delays match by purchasing ‘Dagger of Static’ during set 2

Set 2 ‘Dagger of Static’ purchase causes a fuzz.

Game 2 of Day 1 of Week 3 of the 2023 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Summer Split is underway at Roll Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea on September 9. A fuzz occurred in the second set, delaying the game for about 40 minutes.

The reason for the second-set fuzz was that Kim “Aiming” Haram purchased a banned item, Static’s Dagger, at around 6:08 p.m., 11 minutes and 47 seconds into the match. At 6:50 p.m., about 40 minutes later, it was decided to accelerate the match after the sale of the Static Dagger item.

KT Rolster won the first set in a landslide with a kill score of 20-3, and in the second set, Genji has a slight gold advantage with a kill score of 2-1.

Meanwhile, KT head coach Kang Dong-hoon went to the press room after the game to inform the players of the unfairness of the double discipline, which is an additional punishment in addition to selling items.

It said that it had communicated the ban on the use of Static’s dagger, the item in question, on May 30, just before LCK Summer, and on May 2.
