T1 and Faker are immersed in dramas with fans in Korea and the whole LPL region about Korean rank accounts and the team’s coaches.
After a relatively large Asian Games drama between Faker, T1, KeSPA and some related people, T1 and Faker continued to be entangled in a series of different dramas. From fans criticizing BHL T1 to Faker being constantly called out recently by veteran players, Chinese fans and many other stakeholders. In this article, we will summarize and clarify some recent events about Faker and T1 for your convenience.
Korean rank account?
Drama about banning Korean rank accounts issued to gamers around the world starting from the time, Faker shared a match with Qingtian – TES’s reserve top laner in March 2022. In that match, Faker worked hard to carry the team, the rest of the members also had a very good KDA, but Qingtian wanted to show himself and rushed to the feed with general Aatrox.
The result of the match is certain that any of us can predict it, 4 guys make 1 break at Korean Challenge, defeat is inevitable. Faker then also accused Qingtian of breaking the game as well as releasing some angry words towards game breakers including professional players who were granted accounts to compete on Korean servers.
The drama between T1 Faker has not been reused there when many players and other players often encounter game breaking even at a very high rank on the Korean server. This forced Riot Games to intervene, make rules and tighten the Korean rank account. Qingtian’s home team, TES, also issued a punishment to deter their players. Along with that, Riot Games also reviewed the Korean rank accounts issued to professional players who often had game-breaking and toxic behavior in the match.
Soon, many accounts of professional players from other regions such as LPL or VCS also disappeared. Prominent in LPL are members like Qingtian, Able, Doinb, Lvmao, Iwandy … or at VCS, GAM Esports members were also stripped of their Korean rank accounts. Things continue to drag on until now and the problem has not been completely resolved.
Chinese fans can’t leave this drama alone, they continuously protest and bluntly criticize Faker and T1 on many social networking sites. From the impact of causing many of their players to lose their Korean rank accounts even though they didn’t really do anything wrong to looking down on their opponents, not appreciating RNG to still being defeated by LPL representatives at MSI, the Extreme LPL players like Letme also have to speak up. Along with that, the wave of boycotting Faker in China is also taking place extremely strongly, many people also think that Faker is trying to drown LPL to have an advantage at ASIAD 2022, for personal gain and as a “fake” person. “.
As for Faker and T1, both also made a move to respond to those criticisms and accusations. They even sued the people who criticized them and here the Chinese fans for slander and libel. Chinese LoL followers also voiced that Faker and T1 are trying to make a big deal out of it after what happened. The troubled story continues to this day and shows no sign of ending.

Fans protest about T1’s coaches
The next drama about Faker and T1 took place recently when T1’s fans had a very harsh attitude towards T1’s coach. The reason for this, according to us, comes from the controversy between two T1 fan streams about the indifference of T1 coaches at the last MSI 2022. Specifically, during the time RNG had to make up for 3 matches because of the ping problem, the members of T1 BHL including Moment were still ranking. In addition, many fans also broadcast many other ranking history even though they are still working. They think that this is a very irresponsible act in a major international tournament, not focusing on studying the opponent but not watching and even going to rank, which is unacceptable.
The other side thinks that they have to compete and practice continuously, so it is right for both players and coaches to rest and find other leisure and recreational activities. The two sides argued fiercely, but the T1 side did not really speak up or give an apology to their fans. Everything lasted and until the time of the loss against Gen.G, lost right from the time of the pick and ban, those who disagreed decided to protest and asked T1 to replace the team’s coaches.
Specifically, T1 fans rented trucks to post protest banners about T1 coaches. This process lasts for 4 days, 8 hours a day from T1 building to before the LCK competition venue – LoL Park. Even when T1 had an overwhelming victory over HLE, the anger of the fans towards T1’s staff was still boiling and attributed it to the excellent players and the fact that they were really incompetent to help the team succeed. achieved success in LCK Summer and Worlds 2022.
Some banners on the T1 fan rally car.
“The head coach is incompetent, the coach of the relegation team admits to being incompetent. The solution is to hire a coach who has won Worlds. SKT’s 7 glorious years, fans left the team after 3 years with incompetent coaches.” “Players spend time analyzing opponents while coaches play games…Who is the new coach?” We don’t need an incompetent coach who doesn’t know picks and bans! Appoint a new coach who is a proven former player right away.”

In addition, the T1 CEO also thinks that fans are just wasting money on unnecessary things. The story still shows no sign of stopping even though it has been almost a week.
