League of Legends star Lee 'Faker' Sang-hyeok has reached yet another milestone in his storied career after surpassing a new kill record in the LCK.

Faker is widely considered as the best League of Legends player of all time and has won three world championships under the Iconic SKT T1 brand.

Despite struggling to replicate his international success in recent years, the popular pro player is continuing to break new records in his regional league, LCK.

During his series against Afreeca Freecs on March 5, Faker managed to smash another milestone after scoring his 2000th kill during his time on the LCK stage.

The ‘Unkillable Demon King’ took down Afreeca’s support, Jelly, during an intense team fight to hit the record and quickly began working towards the next milestone, picking up another kill almost instantly after.

Faker currently holds the record for the most kills in LCK matches, although there are quite a few players in the region, such as fellow T1 star Teddy, who have over 1000 kills for themselves and are looking to catch him.

Despite Faker hitting the incredible milestone, it was not enough to secure the win and T1 ended up falling short to Afreeca Freecs after a back-and-forth series that finished 2-1.

However, Faker and his teammates are currently tied for second in the Korean league behind Gen.G and are still looking like strong contenders for the title regardless of their recent defeat.

Unfortunately for fans of both Faker and the LCK, the Korean league is now on an indefinite hiatus after rising concerns for Coronavirus in the region.

Fans may have a long wait for the action to resume as normal after Riot revealed that they would be taking precautionary measures following a health scare with host Mina Kim.
