League of Legends: Faker explains why his Lissandra is godlike

League of Legends star Lee ‘Faker‘ Sang-hyeok has revealed why he is so good when he’s given the opportunity to use the Lissandra hero in the game’s current meta.

During this current LCK Spring Split, Faker has played as Lissandra nine times with SKT, racking up eight wins and only suffering one loss. The iconic League of Legends star most recently used the hero in his team’s dominant 2-0 victory against up-start Sandbox Gaming team.

While his use of the hero doesn’t match the same unbeaten record as his legendary LeBlanc run, it has helped SKT remain hot on the heels of Griffin – who currently sit atop the LCK Spring Split rankings with a 13-2 record, one win ahead of Faker’s squad.

LoL Esports/Riot GamesThe three-time Worlds champion will be eager to reclaim his throne.

After the dominating win over Sandbox Gaming, Faker was quizzed about his use of the hero and his feelings on using Lissandra on a regular basis – when teams let her slip through the pick and ban phase, of course.

When asked for an answer on why he has such a high win-rate when playing as Lissandra, Faker simply responded: “Because I’m good,” to the delight of the watching audience who immediately begun laughing at his answer.

Riot GamesFaker had the chance to depart SKT prior to this season but stuck around with the all-star squad.

However, his comical – yet perhaps serious – response wasn’t his only comment on the hero. 

“I don’t think she’s fun to play,” admitted Faker, after being asked about his feelings in regards to Lissandra. “However, it allows me to cover for my teammates even if they are not playing well.”

Over the course of the LCK Spring Split, Faker and his SKT teammates have proven their critics wrong – after some vocal critics labeled the roster as has-beens who are undeserving of their current salaries.

However, Faker’s goals will be much loftier than having a successful split – as his eyes will be on recapturing the glory of winning LoL’s next World Championship.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
