League of Legends star Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has become the first player to compete in 600 games in the LCK.
The LCK proudly announced the accomplishment on Twitter and during a live stream. Faker continues to be one of the most popular and decorated players in the competitive League of Legends scene. He is beloved by fans both in South Korea and around the world. So strongly, in fact, that T1 has faced backlash whenever they bench Faker and use a substitute in his place.
Viewers were excited to see Faker play in T1’s recent match against Nongshim RedForce, in which Faker easily dominated his opponents.

Despite Faker’s continued prominence, T1 has not consistently had Faker in their main lineup. T1 hasn’t been performing as well as expected, causing the organization to keep making significant roster changes. The most recent change was the signing of a 10-man roster.
Faker publicly stated his disdain for the larger roster, saying it would only cause players to be stressed over the fear of getting benched or swapped out. Even though Faker partially owns T1, it’s clear that the organization hasn’t given Faker free reign to run the team how he sees fit. This did recently cause a lot of frustration for Faker, who said that some players may “suffer” from the recent roster decisions.
In the past, Faker was also the first player in the LCK to reach 1,000 kills, and then 2,000 kills. He also has three World Championship titles to his name. Despite his insane accomplishments, it looks like Faker is hoping to keep pushing himself in the pro scene. His recent record is proof that Faker is still a player with a lot to offer.
T1 will compete against Fredit BRION on Saturday, February 6.
How much is Faker worth?
Faker’s estimated net worth is considered to be around $4 million as of 2021. This includes his partial ownership of T1, his pro salary, and his other esports-related prizes and partnerships.
What is Faker’s IQ?
Faker’s IQ is currently unknown but it would be interesting to see. With his business-savvy decisions and extremely intelligent plays, it figures that his IQ would have to be pretty high.
