During T1’s match against DRX in LCK Spring 2024, Faker reached 600 LCK wins in what may be the most storied League of Legends career ever.
Lee Sang-hyeok, otherwise known by his gamer alias Faker, has played over a decade of professional League of Legends. He is widely considered to be the Michael Jordan of League of Legends, the greatest of all time. In his storied career, Faker has won four world championships, two Mid-Season Invitational championships, and ten League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) titles. His four world championship wins and ten LCK title wins are the most by any player. At twenty-seven years old, the "Unkillable Demon King" is currently in his 11th season of professional play, starting with SK Telecom TI 2 in February 2013. Faker has now become the first player to reach 600 wins in the LCK, a record that might not be broken anytime soon.
Faker's 600th LCK win
T1's fifth match of LCK Spring 2024 presented the opportunity to achieve 600 LCK wins and 3000 LCK kills simultaneously. The match pitted the 3-1 T1 with DRX (1-3) against former T1 member Teddy. In dominating fashion from start to finish, Faker secured his 600th LCK win piloting Neeko.
Securing First Blood in his 600th win
Looking to help lead his team to the match victory over DRX, Faker solo killed enemy midlaner SeTab for first blood. In the post-game interview, Faker thought there was a window for the enemy jungler to gank him. However, instead Faker got the best of his opponent in a 1v1 fight. This was just the beginning of T1's stranglehold over the match.
His second kill of the game
In just 14 minutes, T1 had a 4k gold lead across the entire map. Faker himself was ahead by 30 CS and a kill over his lane opponent. T1 found opportunities to engage in the mid lane, resulting in Faker securing his second kill of the game.
T1's communication while securing Faker's 600th win
Faker, having engaged the beginning of the final fight of the match, traded his life for a kill and the eventual ending of the match. Even so, he calmly communicates with his team as they are bouncing between fighting and ending the game. His reaction to his 600th win seems to be business as usual. Next stop, 3000 kills.
LCK all-time wins leaderboard
As Faker's timeless career continues, he pulls farther ahead of his competition. This is where he currently stands on the LCK all-time wins leaderboard after his 600th win.
At 600 wins, Faker is quite some distance away from the second highest player, Deft. League of Legends's greatest of all time may never be caught once he finally puts away his mouse and keyboard.
