After more than 10 years of competition and countless titles, Faker can be considered the biggest symbol of the professional League of Legends industry. Not only in terms of skills or titles, Faker also makes fans and colleagues admire him for his professionalism and constant efforts. Therefore, Faker gradually becomes a great source of inspiration for young players to study.

It is important to know that Faker is now 27 years old and has not yet shown a decline in influence at T1. Whether in terms of skills or team leadership, the “Demon King” is still doing very well, the clearest proof is the 2023 World Championship title. Therefore, in a recent interview, Peanut (a “former” soldiers” of the LCK region) also shared that Faker himself is an example for him to continue to strive and make more efforts.

“I realized that most of the players I played with have retired. Sometimes I think, “Wow, my playing time is almost over.” Bang recently said that thinking is not good at all so I have to change. Even though Faker is older than me, he still won the world championship and that makes me believe that I can do the same thing. I really hope that I can win the LCK 10 times like Faker” – Peanut shared with the press.
Peanut shared about his goals for the future: “I really want to win LCK 10 times like Faker and win Worlds at least once.”
During his playing career, Peanut has won a total of 6 LCK championships. Therefore, if Peanut wants to quickly reach the milestone of 10 LCK titles like Faker, he needs to win this tournament consecutively in the next 2 seasons. This is truly an extremely difficult challenge for Peanut when other teams such as Dplus KIA, T1, Gen.G… all possess very strong forces next season.
The fact that T1 can retain the full 2023 World Championship squad is enough for them to become a formidable opponent in the 2024 season.
Of course, the Hanwha Life Esports (HLE) squad where Peanut joins also owns many quality names. However, to win the LCK championship immediately with the new squad, Peanut and his teammates definitely need to put in a lot of effort in the upcoming season. Peanut himself also understood this, so he looked at Faker’s example to strive.

As for Faker, the inspirational ability of the “Demon King” is truly too great. Not only Peanut, perhaps many other veteran players (at least in the LCK) also look at Faker’s recent World Championship 2023 title to try to strive. This can create an extremely competitive environment, with many exciting matches in the upcoming LCK season.
