League of Legends superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok completely outplayed his opponents during a solo queue match on his stream.
He was streaming some of his practice games and displayed some breathtaking gameplay as he constantly weaved in and out of danger to crush the enemy team.[ad name=”article2″]
The Korean was playing one of his new favorite champions, Ezreal mid, when he was engaged on by the opposing team.
Thanks to the champion’s mobility he was able to create some distance. But with the enemies hot on his heels, he would have to fight for his life to survive.
He was locked in a small area by a Camille ultimate, while Vladimir and Galio closed in on him and beat him down to a slither of health. For the average player, this would be the end, however, Faker showed exactly why he’s considered the god of the League of Legends mid-lane.
He fired off a quick ultimate, hitting three enemies and eliminating the jungler, before making a split second getaway with his Arcane Shift, surviving on 40 health.
SKT’s star wasn’t afraid even on such low HP and circled back around into the action, taking on the enemy AD-carry and top-laner with the help of one of his teammates.[ad name=”article4″]
A brilliantly aimed Mystic Shot finished off one opponent, and it was followed by a perfectly timed ability combo to delete the last enemy, while once again leaving the battle at the best moment possible.
Faker displayed his mastery of yet another champion, this time with fewer kills but incredible movement which allowed him to survive and stay in the battle for much longer than should have been possible.
The Korean player looks to be in great form heading into the LoL World Championship, which starts on October 1, and will be hungry to reclaim his throne.
His first opponents at the event will be Fnatic and Royal Never Give Up, two of the best teams in the world. However, if Faker keeps up this form, he may be too hard to stop, even for them.
