(Thethaovanhoa.vn) – Faker spoke about the strength of the LCK and LPL regions after the victory against RNG.
In the early morning match on October 22 (Vietnam time), T1 excellently defeated Royal Never Give Up with a total score of 3-0. This is a result that surprised many League of Legends viewers, especially when RNG is still the defending champion of MSI 2022 after defeating T1. This loss also contributed to sending RNG home, making this team the second name of the LPL to say goodbye to the 2022 World Finals.

The T1 members had an excellent day and their victory was completely convincing. In all 3 games, even when being led by many advantages by RNG, Faker and his teammates kept their composure and macro perfectly to gradually regain the game. It can be said that, although it is only 3 short games, T1 has fully recreated the qualities that have made SKT T1 previously the “king” of the world LoL village.

In particular, besides the excellent performance of young stars such as Gumayusi, Zeus… it is impossible not to mention the great performance of Faker – the legend of T1 and the whole village of League of Legends. At the age of 26, while his colleagues or many seniors (and juniors) at the same time have either retired or lost their form, Faker is still the leader of T1 at Worlds 2022. In the match against RNG, Akali Faker’s is really the “nightmare” of the LPL representative. Notably, there are many key situations thanks to Faker’s stellar handling that T1 won the advantage against RNG.

After the match, in the interview, Faker commented on the opinions about the strength of the LPL and LCK: “For me, the LCK or LPL area is not really important. The strength of each team is the most important. And with T1’s current state, I’m confident that we’ll be able to win against any opponent.”

According to many comments, Faker answered extremely delicately, accurately and received much agreement. In fact, it doesn’t matter which region the team comes from when large and small regions around the world always tend to learn from each other. Therefore, whether a team wins or not depends on the strength of that team.

In the semifinals, T1 will enter another “Chinese-Korean great war” when their opponent is JD Gaming – the defending champion of LPL Summer 2022. JDG is definitely a much stronger opponent than RNG and Faker and his teammates will have to focus more if they want to win.
