Referring to Faker’s influence in the League of Legends (League of Legends) village in particular and Esports in general, many people will probably recite countless evidences. Not only is it a matter of expertise or within T1, but Faker’s influence has spread throughout the entire LCK or the world of eSports. T1’s achievements last summer or Esports’ official medal competition at ASIAD are the most recent examples.
Faker’s influence on the League of Legends village is undeniable
Not only does it impact the community, but even with Riot, Faker also has a certain voice. Perhaps many people still remember, the incident of Faker breaking the game while trying hard to rank in Korea in 2022 significantly contributed to Riot Korea’s decision to be aggressive in distributing accounts to climb the rank of Korean servers. VCS itself was also heavily affected when professional teams found it difficult to own Korean rank accounts to practice anymore.

Recently, a funny incident happened in rank when Faker tried hard to prepare for Worlds 2023. As mentioned, while climbing rank, Faker teamed up with Zven and there was a situation of using Kennen to prepare. Pentakill. However, teammate Gragas had a Flash – Belly Roll as well as used all combos to defeat the enemy Rakan, causing Faker to lose Pentakill. Even then, the “Demon King” continuously pinged his teammates and Flash on the spot, causing… frustration.

But according to Zven, what happened next was really funny. Specifically, the Cloud9 player said: “This guy stole Faker’s Pentakill in my game in Korean rank. But the funny thing is that he apologized profusely after that, and then he continuously Chat apologized when we entered the lobby, as if he had just done something wrong to the President.”
Zven shared the story of a gamer having to apologize profusely after “accidentally” stealing Faker’s Pentakill
Zven’s share quickly attracted a lot of attention. One player also said: “My friend got 1200 Korean Challenge points but there was a match where he met Faker. That match happened to be the same match where he didn’t play well and Faker had to ask: “What is this Jungler doing?” what are you doing? Are you cheating with wintrade? He has no use at all.” And right after that, his account was banned.” But in this case, many people think that maybe he “fed” too much in that match or had a move that was mistaken for a game break and Riot handled it on its own, without waiting for Faker to speak up.
A netizen said that his friend’s account was locked for “feeding” while on a team with Faker
But it cannot be denied that Faker really has a huge influence, even on the subconscious of ordinary players. And Faker’s great career is the answer to any questions about the influence of the “Demon King” on the world of League of Legends.
