Score becomes the first to play 500 matches in the LCK

Go “Score” Dong-bin has officially become the first player in LCK history to play 500 matches in his career.
KT Rolster’s jungler played his 500th game against SANDBOX Gaming during the 2019 Spring Split. Even though SANDBOX took the victory with a 2-1 finish, the game made history because of Score’s unusual achievement.
His win-loss ratio for those 500 games is 60.8 percent, with 304 wins and 196 losses. This is a win ratio that impressed fans immensely, especially when compared to Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok’s 500-game winrate of 67 percent, which the superstar achieved while playing on mostly dominant teams.
Score has been playing professional League of Legends since 2012 when he signed with StarTale. Later that year, the 26-year-old transferred to KT Rolster where he slowly morphed into being one of the team’s star players. Despite a rough period early in his KT career, Score and his squad eventually proved themselves by qualifying for the Season 3 Korea Regional Finals in 2013. They missed Worlds that year, losing to SK Telecom T1 in a 3-1 final.
While KT Rolster continued to fall to SK Telecom throughout the next few years, the underdogs eventually attended two World Championships. They recently won the 2018 LCK Summer Split, which was the first LCK title for Score.
Score was often called one of the best ADCs in the world before his switch to the jungle. He was the fourth player to reach 1,000 kills in the LCK, following closely behind Faker, Kim "PraY" Jong-in, and Bae "Bang" Jun-sik. His 1,000th kill was on SK Telecom’s support Lee "Wolf" Jae-wan in the LCK 2017 Spring season.
