Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has cemented his historic legacy within League of Legends with a new record, becoming the first player to achieve 2,000 kills in the LCK.
The South Korean player achieved the record during T1’s match against Afreeca Freecs in the 2020 League Of Legends Champions Korea Spring Split.
Over the course of the match, Faker achieved 12 kills in total; picking up nine kills with Orianna in the first game, while earning an additional three with Zoe in the following game.
This pushed Faker’s total kill count in the LCK to 2,000, with the official lolesports Twitter account celebrating the milestone.
Faker, who signed with T1 in 2013, has become the face of League of Legends esports across the world, having won three World Championships with the team.
Earlier this year, Faker extended his contract with T1 for three additional years and became part owner of the team – ensuring his loyalty to the organisation even after retirement.
This new record comes ahead of the LCK going on indefinite hiatus from 6th March due to the Coronavirus, which will also temporarily end weekly talk show Sunday Night LCK.
