Faker the First to Compete in 600 LCK Games

Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, mid-laner for esports organization T1, has passed a major milestone in the LCK today. The League of Legends esports player is officially the first to compete in 600 matches in the LCK. Achieved on day 16 of the Spring Split, Faker claimed the title on his third game against NS Redforce.

Faker hits 600 LCK Matches

Faker is known around the world as one of the best mid-laners in League of Legends esports. He’s climbed through the scene at many tournaments and left a legacy of godlike moments in history. He’s won three World Championships, multiple LCK competitions and more. Ultimately, his talent as a pro player in League of Legends esports earned him the adoration of millions.

Today’s milestone is no surprise either. Faker was actually the second player to participate in 500 LCK matches, right behind Go “Score” Dong-bin two years ago. However, the legend came first and reached the 600-match mark today with his third game against NS Redforce in the fourth week of the LCK Spring Split.  Other competitors, like Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu come close with the most LCK matches at 480.

Faker’s Rise

Initially rising to fame in 2013, Faker made history at the Worlds Championship with his team winning the grand tournament. From there on, T1 and Faker’s mark in the professional scene grew larger with every event. After roughly two years, Faker won his second League of Legends esports World Championship in 2015. The following year, he took his third championship title, making him a back-to-back winner. At that point, Faker was deemed by the world as the best player, especially in the LCK.

It’s unsure if Faker will keep his standing as the first to reach 700 LCK matches in the future with how long the champ has been running. But fans can tune in to his next match against Fredit BRION, this coming Saturday on Twitch.
