FAKER IS THINKING ABOUT HIS CHOICES FROM AMONG MANY LCS TEAMS
Lee “Faker” Sung-hyeok, considered by many to be the finest League of Legends player of all time, is reportedly considering offers from numerous LCS franchises.
As far as many fans and experts are concerned, Faker is the finest League of Legends player of all time. He has been with T1 for so long that he has essentially created a dynasty there.
FAKER MAY BE QUITTING T1
Faker and T1 are a legendary trophy-winning combination that have never been split up. Yet, a report by Blix.gg’s Alejandro Gomis has hinted to trouble between T1 and the famed mid laner. Multiple LCS teams, notably FlyQuest and Team Liquid, are interested in acquiring the South Korean player. Additionally, the source claims that Team Liquid gave the player a formal offer. According to the article, he is likely to stay with T1 and will not go to the United States or Canada.
Faker’s career as a professional gamer began at T1 in 2013. He started his career with SK Telecom T1 2 for 9 months and then continued on with SK Telecom T1 till 2019. Over the course of this period, Faker became the most successful player in League of Legends history, racking up a total of nine LCK championships and three Worlds trophies. Back in 2016 and 2017, he also took home a pair of MSI trophies. Faker reached the World Championship Finals for the seventh time in his career despite encountering some minor setbacks along the route. All around, people respect and admire his work ethic, his brilliance, and his performance.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY MANY PRESENTED OFFERS
For the LCS 2023 season, Team Liquid has brought on board Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan as their new head coach. As one of the best top laners of all time, MaRin has come out of retirement to coach the Liquid team this year. If the rumor of Team Liquid making an offer to Faker is true, then the addition of MaRin might be highly convincing to the South Korean mid laner. Both MaRin and Faker were formerly members of the World Championship-winning SK Telecom T1 lineup.
Faker will likely remain in South Korea and play for T1, despite interest from FlyQuest and an offer from Team Liquid. As with TSM and Bjergsen, he may be required to sell or otherwise dispose of his T1 shares in order to fulfill the terms of his earlier agreement with the company.

Faker’s trip to North America has the potential to be really entertaining and thrilling, thus the deal seems to be going well. If we take into account the economic and MaRin element, however, everything is conceivable. As obvious as it may sound, Faker should remain on South Korean soil if he wants to continue adding Worlds titles to his collection. His contract will finish today, making him the lone free agent on T1’s Worlds 2022 finalist team. The remaining four have one year left on their contracts and are thus quite likely to remain with the squad. Team Liquid’s chances will definitely change if Faker joins the LCS for the next season.
