They also lost the third place match 3-1 to the KT Rolster Bullets to end in fourth place overall, their highest placing yet. They would continue their upward trend at HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 where they made their first final against Samsung Galaxy Blue, but they were comfortably beaten 3-1. The final OGN of the year was HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 where Shield made the quarterfinals but lost 3-2 to the KT Rolster Arrows. The team earned enough circuit points to qualify for the 2014 Season Korea Regional Finals as the third seed. Shield ran the entire guantlet, beating the Bullets, the Arrows, and SK Telecom T1 K while only dropping one game in the process to qualify for the 2014 World Championship as the third seed from Korea. Shield was placed in a group with Cloud9, Alliance, and KaBuM! e-Sports. They placed first after winning a tie breaker against C9 and were placed against OMG in their quarterfinal matchup. Shield suffered crushing defeat at the hands of OMG, losing 3-0 after the latter decided to sub in Cloud as their support.
