ShowMaker becomes latest LCK player to get 1,000 kills

Damwon Gaming mid laner Heo “ShowMaker” Su has become the 17th player in LCK history to reach 1,000 kills.

ShowMaker got his 1,000th kill while playing against T1 in the LCK Summer Split Finals’ fourth game using LeBlanc. Along with the 1,000th kill, ShowMaker added another LCK Championship trophy to his mantel for the split, the third in a row for him, and also was awarded LCK Finals MVP honors.

ShowMaker first joined DAMWON Gaming in 2018 and has been one of the LCK’s top players ever since. At this point he has won three LCK titles and was a member of Damwon Gaming’s 2020 World championship team. He’s also the fastest player to date to reach the 1,000-kill milestone.

After such a strong showing in the LCK Finals, ShowMaker and the rest of DAMWON Gaming are looking to take on the world’s best League of Legends teams at Worlds 2021 and make it two in a row. They will enter the event as the LCK’s top seed and should enter the event as one of the favorites to win. Though T1 lost in the LCK Summer Split Finals, the team is already guaranteed a spot in worlds. The team will compete in the last match of the LCK Regional Finals, where a victory will seal a group stage berth and a loss will send them to the play-ins.

ShowMaker joins Faker, Teddy in having 1,000 LCK kills

Unsurprisingly, the LCK player with the most kills of all time is none other than Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok. He was the first player to reach 1,000 kills and the first to reach 2,000 as well. He stands as one of the greatest players in esports history, winning three Worlds titles and nine LCK split titles.

Alongside Faker is a list of South Korea’s all-time greats as well modern stars like ShowMaker. The top-10 list of the deadliest players in LCK history includes:

  • Faker
  • Deft
  • Pray
  • Bang
  • Ruler
  • Kuro
  • Score
  • Teddy
  • BDD
  • SMEB
