November 17, Faker 's contract is extended through Since almost the beginning of his career in , Faker has been the face of the biggest esport in the world, League of Legends.
In his first year as a year-old rookie, Faker won his first South Korean domestic championship and then traveled to Los Angeles to win his first world title in front of a sold-out crowd at Staples Center.
From there, he has won every individual accolade possible in the game and added seven more domestic trophies along with two more world championships.
In his home country, he has become a national icon, appearing on late-night television shows and starring in commercials alongside countryman Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur.
Fans in China and around the world have camped out at hotels where T1 and Faker were staying during events, hoping to get an autograph from one of the best video game players in history.
One fan in Rio de Janeiro went as far as to jump over a barricade and evade security to celebrate with Faker following one of his various international championships.
Once a South Korean operation, T1 now has teams and players around the world in multiple gaming titles, including Fortnite, Super Smash Bros.
Most recently, T1 announced an exclusive partnership with Nike to help revolutionize esports training facilities and create programs that will boost the physical and mental performance of its players.
Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok has been an esports superstar and key member of the T1 League of Legends team since , and a new three-year contract with the squad adds "part owner" to his title.
As first reported by ESPN , while the talented mid laner has said he received "blank check" offers from teams outside of South Korea, the year-old will remain with the only pro team he's ever known.
The three year deal is the longest contract allowed under League maker Riot's rules, and according to T1, "Faker will assume a leadership role within the organization after his playing career and will help facilitate global operations.
Even after Faker's retirement — whenever that may be — he will begin the next chapter of his legacy in a leadership role with T1, helping to mold the next generation of elite esports athletes.
Faker has won three League of Legends championships with T1, and now with a contract running through they can try to avenge last year's result, a loss in the semifinals to G2 Esports.
Faker was born in Seoul on May 7, He and his brother were raised by their grandparents and their father, Lee Kyung-joon, in Gangseo District, Seoul.
He discovered League of Legends in late , and quickly became adept at the game. They would then go on to win All-Star Paris In the following offseason, Riot Games changed the team regulations so that each organisation can only have one team participating in each league.
The new team would compete under the name SKT T1. Between Seasons 4 and 5, many top Korean League of Legends players, including the entire world champion team, Samsung Galaxy , left Korea to play on Chinese teams for higher salaries.
Throughout , Faker shared the mid lane position with Lee "Easyhoon" Ji-hoon. Depending on the team composition SKT wanted to play, either one of the players could be substituted into the game.
At the World Championship , Faker and his team won while only dropping one game in the finals for a record of 15—1 throughout the tournament.
They were heavily favored coming into the tournament, but were initially unable to perform up to their usual standards, unexpectedly losing several games in the group stage.
However, they managed to turn things around during the elimination round and eventually clinched the title by sweeping the North American team, Counter Logic Gaming , in the finals.
The team swept through the group stage and advanced towards the playoff round. In the semifinals they defeated the ROX Tigers in a close 3—2 series.
In the finals they defeated Samsung Galaxy in another close 3—2 series, winning their third world championship title.
Faker was voted as the Most Valuable Player of the tournament. On February 6, , Faker recorded his first live stream on Twitch and had a peak viewership of ,, setting a record at the time for the most views for a single streamer in the history of the site.
However, this record was broken in early by another League of Legends streamer named Tyler1. This win qualified them for the Mid-Season Invitational.
After a dominant group stage conceding just a single loss, SKT narrowly defeated Misfits and Royal Never Give Up in the quarterfinals and semifinals respectively, before having to face Samsung Galaxy in a repeat of the previous year's final.
Not only is it a good brand fit for Faker with a team with the checkbook to sign him, but also, Gen.
G might be his best chance to get back the Summoner's Cup. If he doesn't retire in the offseason, who doesn't want to see old rivals Faker and Kang "Ambition" Chan-yong team up in a quest to return pride to South Korea after how terribly the country did this year?
I don't think Faker would have any qualms about playing with the worlds MVP, Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk, someone who could take the load off Faker's shoulders when it comes to carrying.
For Gen. G, there is no reason not to go out and try to sign Faker. After an inconsistent carousel of mid laners in and a woeful worlds performance by Lee "Crown" Min-ho, Faker should be on the top of the shopping list.
Faker doesn't need Gen. It's Faker. Why would the best player in history join the team that defeated him in the most difficult series of his life?
G, formerly Samsung, made Faker break down into hysterics after sweeping him in the worlds final in Beijing. G also eliminated SKT from worlds contention this year by beating them in the South Korean regional gauntlet.
Do you really think the GOAT is going to join the team that beat him and play second fiddle to the legacy of Ambition on that team?
Steve Arhancet is calling, Faker. Look outside. You see that limousine filled with American dollar bills?
There's a monster truck behind that limousine ready to crush it because there are gold bars inside just for you. All the money, Faker. Just take it. Did you hear we just got Michael Jordan as an investor?
He's the basketball version of you. Let's make you the first esports billionaire. You'll love it. But really, with Liquid not even making it out of groups after a dominating domestic year and Faker a few days from free agency, there is no way you can bring up possible Faker destinations and not have Team Liquid near the top.
They have the money. They have the brand name.Retrieved April 14, Depending on the team composition SKT wanted to play, either one of Heracay Freundin players could be substituted into the game.
