It’s widely known that League of Legends worldwide star Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok has insane reactions and skills within the game, but a look into his POV revealed just how crazy his screen gets in pro games.

Riot Games released Pro View in time for the 2019 Summer Split which lets fans tune into a specific player’s POV live during a league game. While the feature has been an eye-opening experience to see how the pros play, it could be a dizzying affair for those who want to watch Faker.

Longtime League of Leagends players know there’s quite a bit to keep track of and maintain while in the Rift. Even though Faker has been famous for his crazy APM that keeps tabs on everything happening around him, it looks like it gets taken up a notch during competitive games.

The Korean HeraldFaker’s screen during matches is almost unwatchable at times because of how fast his inputs can get.

Fans who check out Faker’s channel on Twitch are in constant amazement at how he maneuvers in games, but that pales in comparison to the nauseating display especially during MSI 2019.

Fans who bought the Pro View feature also got POV VODs of MSI, revealing how chaotic Faker’s screen gets especially when the action turns up.

“He uses the F-keys like a mad man even faster and more often than LS,” Reddit user ‘heyyeahheyxd’ said. “He looks at the POV of 3 different players in a second. You might actually get a headache. Definitely an interesting POV to watch. 10/10 would recommend if you’re into that.”

Causing headaches would be the best description since Faker almost never lets a moment slip away without checking in on his teammates using F1-F5 keys.

Faker’s habits translates into sick outplays

Keeping up with all the action on the Rift can give players all the information they need to feel confident about their next play.

Faker constantly shows that during ranked and LCK games which lets him make unbelievable outplays that leave people questioning what they just saw.

The South Korean pro is widely known for his LeBlanc, but has shown a mastery of near all mid-lane champs.

As the season goes on, Pro View is sure to get more and more popular but if people ever want to catch Faker’s POV just be warned that it could get overwhelming real quick.

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.

You can find the full TFT Patch 10.20b changes below.
