T1 best performance of the year…Chance to win the LOL World Cup
Foreign media responded that the SK Telecom CST1 (T1) game team under Faker (real name Lee Sang-hyuk, 26) showed a performance that could regain the top of the League of Legends World Championship (LOL World Cup).
Spanish game media Full eSports said, “T1 advanced to the finals with a huge series and great shows in a packed stadium (with spectators). “I showed one of the best performances of the year,” he praised.
T1 beat Jingdong (China) by a set score of 3-1 in the semifinals at State Farm Arena (21,000 capacity) in Atlanta, Georgia, on Oct. 31. The final opponent to be held at Chase Center (18,064 seats) in San Francisco, California, on November 6th is the Korean game team DRX.
“Full e-sports” said, “Faker is a professional gamer who will go down in history as the best player in League of Legends (LoL) e-sports. “T1, who drove out China’s No. 1 seed Jingdong, had a chance to lift the LOL World Cup trophy for the fourth time in his career with Faker,” he said.
T1 is the most won team in the LOL World Cup in 2013, 2015 and 2016. “The young star corps T1 returned to the LOL World Cup Final under the guidance of Faker (Veteran captain).” “The performance that swept the semifinals was undoubtedly a perfect advantage,” he added.
Except for Faker, the average age of the other four T1 starters is only 19 years, 10 months and 8 days. Kuma Yushi (Lee Min-hyung) and Keria (Ryu Min-seok), who praised “Full e-sports” for their semi-final performance, were also born in 2002.
Full eSports said, “Faker’s T1 built a dynasty in League of Legends eSports in the early to mid-2010s. If the 2022 LOL World Cup is won, the reign will resume. “I’m looking forward to the final,” he said, expressing his expectations for the final.
