League of Legends T1 Star Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok became the first player to compete in 600 games in the LCK.
The LCK proudly announced the accomplishment on Twitter and live streaming. Faker continues to be one of the most popular and decorated players on the competitive League of Legends scene.
He’s loved by fans both in South Korea and around the world. So strongly, in fact, that T1 was confronted with backlash whenever Faker was benched and used a substitute in his place.
Viewers were thrilled to see Faker play in the recent match
Viewers were thrilled to see Faker play in the recent T1 match against Nongshim RedForce, where he easily dominated his opponents. Despite his continued prominence, T1 was not consistent with his main lineup.
T1 has not been performing as expected, causing the organization to continue making substantial changes to the roster. The most recent change has been the signing of a 10 man roster.
Faker publicly denounced his disdain for the larger roster, saying that it would only cause the players to be stressed over the fear of being sidelined or swapped.
Even though he partially owned T1, it is clear that the organization has not given him complete freedom to run the team as he sees fit. This has recently caused a lot of frustration for him, who said that some players may “suffer” from recent roster decisions.
Throughout the past, Faker was also the first LCK player to reach 1,000 kills, and then 2,000 kills. He also has three World Championship titles in his name. In spite of his insane accomplishments, He seems to be hoping to keep pushing himself into the League of Legends pro scene. His recent record shows that he is still a player with a lot to offer.
T1 will compete with Fredit BRION on Saturday, February 6.
