League of Legends superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok had some fun as he trolled a teammate during a charity match with Rick Fox. 

Faker is one of the most famous LoL players in the world, known for his incredible mechanics that helped his team secure back-to-back World Championship titles in 2015 and 2016.  

He has always remained cool and polite, even after a tough defeat, but couldn’t help himself after he noticed a teammate wasn’t moving in a charity match with Rick Fox and decided to subtly take a dig at them.

InvenGlobalFaker is one of LoL’s most popular players.

The SKT star was one of many special guests on Rick Fox’s 24-hour Champions for Charity stream – a broadcast aimed at raising money for the Bahamas relief Foundation.

They were playing a duo queue game and things were getting down to the wire with just a handful of inhibitors remaining, meaning the next fight would decide it all. Faker was attempting to organize the troops and pull off a quick Baron kill, but his jungler didn’t seem interested.

As the Canadian and Korean duo made their way to the topside river they noticed that their jungler, playing Nocturne, had stopped in his tracks. The usually calm and collect Faker was not impressed and had an unexpected reaction.

He panned back to the Nocturne and his face turned into a strange mix of amusement and disappointment, as he zoomed in on him and just watched for a moment. He didn’t say anything, but the intent was clear.

The chat erupted in laughter and question marks, dubbing the move as Faker’s polite way of flaming, which seemed very much like it could be.

They ended up losing the match, likely due to the fact it was a 4v5, but had at that point raised over $8000 for charity and showed off a new side of Faker, so really, it can be counted as a win.
