While happy for his victory over JDG, Faker was not overly excited and still celebrated in his usual way in the Esports League of Legends village.
In the last match day of Worlds 2023, T1 had an emotional victory over JDG and retained the opportunity to defend the throne right on the LCK home field. In particular, the Immortal Demon King – Faker also had an extremely impressive performance with Emperor Shurima, thereby receiving countless praises from the League of Legends community.
But even when he had a landmark performance that helped T1 win, Faker was still very humble and refused to celebrate “too much” after the match with JDG.
Faker refused to celebrate with a Thumb Down after the match against JDG
More specifically about this, after winning against JDG and packing up his gaming gear, Faker used the familiar pose of giving a thumbs up. But the cameraman (photographer) of Riot Games “lured” Faker to raise his thumb downward as a bold way of celebration (compared to Faker’s usual image).
Many fans consider this an act of “trash talk” or “crowning” after the match in the League of Legends Esports village. However, Faker shook his head and refused and only took pictures with two poses: thumbs up and pointing at the camera.
Through this action, the League of Legends community in general and Faker fans in particular have left many compliments about the Immortal Demon King’s humility, saying that he is the perfect role model for any player in the Esports industry. League of Legends learns.
