Faker recently officially spoke out after the incident of T1’s extreme fans sending trucks with banners to LoL Park.
Recently, the Korean LoL community continued to be shaken after T1’s extreme fans sent LoL Park a truck with a banner. This is said to be a move to pressure the team’s leadership to replace the coach duo Polt and Moment. Banners with content expressing dissatisfaction with T1’s current performance, and asking the management board to look for names that have been crowned at Worlds to replace the current coach duo.
Immediately after the extreme action of the above fans, some T1 members also officially spoke out about the incident. In his post on Twitter, T1 CEO Joe Marsh said that this is a meaningless action on the part of a fanatical fan base, and it is completely not representative of the majority of T1 fans.
100 “fans” wasted money on a truck. They don’t speak for the other 1M fans. You failed to mention we had “worlds winning coaches” in 2020 and 2021. One didn’t make worlds and the other was replaced mid-season. Just thought the full context would be helpful to the readers.

In addition to Joe Marsh, Faker also had his statements surrounding the above incident. In an interview with Osen, T1’s Mid laner said, “No matter what the fans do, it comes from the love they have for the team. All members of T1 have to work hard to repay a part of the love that the fans themselves have given us. I will do my best for them,” said Faker.
Perhaps the above extreme actions are seen by Faker in a different light, and the Devil King wants to use that as a motivation for the whole team to try even though this is considered extreme behavior that adversely affects the teams. players as well as the coaching staff.
With a team with such an impressive track record as T1, it’s not uncommon to have extreme fans who are always dissatisfied with the team’s results. In the past, T1 headquarters was once sent a funeral wreath when this team showed a series of poor performances in the LCK. Faker’s statement is considered an effective cooling move for the “hot heads” of crazy fans.
