On Nov. 19, T1 announced that they’ve re-signed their legendary mid laner, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok. As of this contract, Faker will be playing for T1 next season.
Faker has been playing for T1 for the entirety of his career. As the team’s franchise star, he brought back three World Championships, nine LCK championships, and two MSI championships, including a back-to-back World Championship. Faker led his team to a top 4 finish at this year's Worlds, unfortuantely coming up short against DWG KIA in the semifinals.
“Faker means a lot to the organization. One of the gaming superstars who came up at such a young age, even now, where he’s at in his career, he still kind of transcends the sport, and he’s truly an international celebrity,” said Joe Marsh, and told his hopes for the future. “Hopefully, we can bring the fourth championship to Faker.”
The stove league is hot with many unexpected changes, but it’s only the beginning. All fans are watching eagerly to see how their favorite teams turn out.
