League of Legends superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok made a team surrender a tight competitive game after showing off god-tier LeBlanc mechanics that the enemy team apparently couldn’t handle.

While Riot Game’s MOBA is one of the most team-oriented games on the market, sometimes it only takes one play for a squad to realize their game is done and quickly vote to get out of the losing effort.

This was prominently displayed during Faker’s June 1 stream in which the two teams on the Rift were trading blows throughout the match, until SKT’s star mid-laner decided to destroy their morale using LeBlanc’s trickery and tons of patience.

Riot GamesLeBlanc is a tricky opponent to go up against, especially with Faker playing as her.

In the latest entry of a “do not try this in your games” highlight from Faker, he was pushing down the bot wave when he took a 1v1 engagement against the Sejuani.

This attracted aggro from the enemy Irelia, which let Faker know it was time to get out by using Distortion. But he decided to live up to the Deceiver’s name and reactivated W to get back into the fray.

Upon doing so, he saw he was being collapsed by Sej, Irelia and now Zoey, but Faker stuck to his plan by going deeper into enemy territory. Shortly after the enemy Lucian and Morgana joined the hunt, as the entire opposing squad used important cooldowns in attempts of killing the pesky LeBlanc.

Unfortunately for the Blue side, it was all just a stall tactic as Faker’s team came in to mop up scoring an (almost) clean Ace leading to an immediate surrender vote.

Faker’s LeBlanc is legendary

League of Legends orgs around the world know to never give Faker a chance to play on LeBlanc because of his incredible prowess with the mage.

Even with low health or mana, Faker routinely pulls through in various one versus many situations.

Moreover, Faker has shown that even in 1v1 situations with LeBlanc could be a disorientating affair for the opposing champion.

At only 23 years of age, Faker is bound to produce a lot more LeBlanc highlights that will leave fans in amazement and enemy teams in shambles.

Riot Games has revealed a major set of changes coming to the League of Legends Wild Rift beta, including some FPS fixes, nerfs, and more to be added in future updates.

The hype for League of Legends Wild Rift is continuing to build following the release of the beta, on September 16, and with more events for Riot’s mobile game now taking place, such as the recent Verizon Invitational, players are eager to experience the game for themselves.

While it is yet to be released in all regions, Riot has now confirmed some big changes that they will be hoping to add to the MOBA in the upcoming patches. Here’s what you need to know.

Riot reveal FPS fixes and nerfs for League Wild Rift

After the first few weeks of action on League’s mobile title, Riot revealed they would be making some “quality-of-life fixes” in-game, which have been heavily requested by players so far.

Among the future changes is an option for players to toggle between 30 and 60 frames per second (FPS) on all devices, to help improve the performance of the game.

In their announcement on October 24, the Wild Rift devs confirmed that the FPS option would be added to the game “in a few days,” meaning that players who are struggling with performance issues won’t have much longer to wait.

Some of the other fixes include nerfs to Xin Zhao, a champion who has quickly risen to the top of the Wild Rift meta, with Riot confirming changes to tone down the jungler in early November.

They also revealed that they would be adding a patch, in December, to help those experiencing issues with joysticks and controllers on Wild Rift.

While some of these changes are still a few weeks away, Wild Rift just released plenty of new content with their first patch on October 23, bringing in new champions such as Kai’Sa, Draven, Darius, and more.

They have also announced the release dates for the European and North American beta, confirming that they will be looking to bring the mobile title to even more regions before the end of 2020.
