The League of Legends competitive scene has never had a player like Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok, and now he’s been immortalized once again with a limited edition SD figure that truly makes him a household name.

Riot Games have numerous professional leagues for their popular MOBA spread across the world, and Korea has long been one of the most consistent regions of intense, high-level League of Legends talent.

Among the higher echelons of players in the scene, Faker has been a clear standout among the world’s best year after year which undoubtedly contributed to Super Play’s take on the LoL star.

LoL EsportsFaker’s dominance has inspired tons of collectible items, but none quite as awesome as his new figure.

Super Play officially released their Faker statue that honors the three-time World Champion that shows him in a classic pose that’s struck fear into lower level players for years.

“This figure is especially meaningful as the esports star SD figure sold for the first time in the world,” Super Play said in releasing the figure.

The figure is 11 cm tall and 5.5 cm wide and shows the SKT star in his iconic 2016 outfit with his arms crossed while staring daggers through is equally famous glasses.

The statute comes boxed with ‘Faker’ in large text on the front label while in a red and black packaging that could instantly be a centerpiece for any collection.

Fans can pick up the figure for 33,000 South Korean Won and $33 USD on Super Play’s online shop if they’re interested in adding the Faker statue to their personal collection.

People who don’t want to take the figure out of its box will still have an epic display to own.

People keen on going through Faker’s highlights will be met with an almost endless reel of extraordinary outplays, masterful teamfight approaches, and intense 1v1’s that leave fans in sheer amazement.

But Riot Games gave fans a new vantage point to seeing Faker play with the launch of Pro View, giving a glimpse into the almost nauseating gameplay he produces during live competitive matches.

Ahead of the next update, Riot have slid in a little addendum to TFT Patch 10.20 with a “b-patch” hotfix. The devs are keeping a keen eye on Spirit, Aphelios, Ashe, and more, as they look to tone down the “overperformers” urgently.

While Riot seemingly did away with the b-patches during the latter stages of Galaxies, the mid-update changes are back. In TFT Fates, Riot will be keeping more of a keen eye during the week following a major update to potentially drop even more changes.

They were happy after the set’s launch initially, but there have been a few overperformers in TFT Patch 10.20 Riot want to tone down ahead of the next update. They aren’t doing too much though, as they want the next patch to be a big one.

“[TFT Patch] 10.21 is shaping up to be a big patch, but these changes felt worth getting out a little earlier. B-Patches are limited to number changes, so bigger changes have to wait,” developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer explained after the October 7 update went live.

Spirit 4 nerfed, Brawler-Ashe targeted

The major changes in TFT Patch 10.20b are to Spirit, Ashe, and Aphelios. The two champions, and the trait, have been the crux of many of the meta compositions.

Looking at Spirit, Riot has decided the Patch 10.20 changes weren’t enough originally. Spirit 4 is being nerfed by another 10% bonus attack speed, dropping from 80% of the mana cost to 70%. This should hopefully bring it more in line, although without Ahri nerfs being shipped, that remains to be seen.

Brawler-Ashe has been one of the most consistent compositions of the set so far. With Ashe being able to dish out huge amounts of damage with an in-built attack speed steroid, she’s risen to be one of the best units in the set. Riot will be toning that back though, reducing her ability’s attack speed at one and two-star.

Brawler-Ashe is getting a notable nerf if you don’t manage to find three-star Ashe.

Aphelios carry is also another popular composition. Riot has deemed his ability to generate turrets a bit too efficient though, so he’s losing some of his starting mana so he can’t automatically start firing away.

Janna and Veigar are also being targeted in TFT Patch 10.20b. Janna’s total mana is going up from 50 to 60, while Veigar is losing damage on his Dark Blossom ability at all levels.
