Faker is without a doubt the biggest name in League of Legends, and one of the biggest names in global esports. We take a look at how he continues to set records, even after rising to the top of LoL esports. 

Lee 'Faker' Sang-hyeok is a name every single competitive LoL fan will be familiar with. The 23-year-old South Korean star has taken the esports scene by storm and regularly stands out among the very best League players in the world.

Many consider him to be the best player of all time, a title that comes through years of hard work and dedication. This is proved by the fact that, despite years at the top of League of Legends esports, he continues to set records that few other players can even get near.

It is eight years since Sang-hyeok first debuted in LoL esports and yet, on March 5, 2020, he became the first LCK player ever to pass 2,000 kills. It is merely the latest achievement on the incredible CV Faker boasts, joining an abundance of championships and insane highlight reels.

While a lot of fans will primarily know Faker for his World Championship successes, he has won an insane 8 domestic titles in the LCK, which has often been considered the World's toughest domestic league.

Contracted to T1 until 2022, it doesn't look like this star's success is going to slow down anytime soon.
