Faker has already won the World Championship in League of Legends three times with T1 and is record world champion with Bae “Bengi” Seong-woong. Faker has never played for another team in his professional career.

The 23-year-old Korean is the first Esportler to be inducted into the Esport Hall of Fame during his active career. According to Liquipedia, Faker has won prize money of 1.25 million dollars. In addition, Faker receives a salary from T1, the amount of which is not known.

According to ESPN, Faker has already been wooed by other teams from Germany and abroad with blank cheques. Nevertheless, Faker decided to stay with SK Telecom T1.
