It would be too much to repeat about Faker’s influence and reputation in the LoL village in particular and the worldwide Esports community in general. Since debuting with SKT T1 until now, no LoL player has won more Worlds titles than Faker. And at the same time, there is no one as influential as the “Chairman”.
Faker is a player with a huge influence in Esports in general and League of Legends in particular
Therefore, it is not surprising that Faker has the most powerful fan base in League of Legends. It won’t be difficult to hear that a lot of players, whether in the LCK or the big rival LPL, are “hard fans” of Faker. Many people use Faker as a role model or express their admiration for the “Demon King”, even players who have just been defeated by T1.
Like at this MSI 2022, League of Legends fans were extremely excited when the first annual international tournament of the LoL village suddenly turned into a “Faker fan meeting event”. The opening is Jankos – the leader of the “National Circus” G2 Esports. Specifically, when he discovered that G2 and T1 were on the same floor, G2’s jungler was extremely excited and jokingly said: “T1 is on the same floor with us. It’s the same floor. So that’s basically I slept with Faker. I didn’t sleep in the same bed or in the same room, but on the same floor, so it can be considered that I slept next to Faker.”
Jankos was very excited when he found out that he was on the same floor as T1
And yet, Jankos also praised “Chairman” to the heavens when he affirmed that Faker radiated an aura: “You can feel him. It’s like you could tell he was there. Really. the truth is “Demon King”. He’s the main character. The atmosphere changed as soon as Faker appeared.”
Jankos claims Faker gives off an aura
In addition to Jankos, DetonatioN FocusMe’s Evi also met Faker while riding in the elevator. And needless to say, the legendary LJL player also agrees with Jankos: “Faker’s aura is amazing. I don’t believe in these aura things. But it’s true that Faker has an aura. there. I can feel it. When he came out he even greeted me.”
DFM’s old general Evi also recounted the story of meeting Faker in the elevator, being greeted by Faker and confirming Faker’s aura was real.
In addition to the two veterans Jankos and Evi, there are also names like Red Canids’ TitaN or ORDER’s Puma player who are also excited to meet Faker. But it must also be said, for teams in small regions, being able to attend MSI 2022 and meet Faker, maybe even have the opportunity to face the “Demon King” is definitely an experience that any player would love. want to experience it once.
RED TitaN: “Just passed by Faker and I saw him nodding slightly hello. I’m so shocked everyone”
ORD Puma: “Meet Faker and Bengi in the hallway and now my heart is racing”
But even if it’s a “fan meeting”, surely if they face T1, these teams will try their best. Faker himself also has to give his all if he wants to bring home his first international title after many empty-handed seasons in these arenas.
