The most famous player in the League Of Legends history, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, is a 25-year-old South Korean player who has been playing under the T1 jersey for over seven years. In his career, he earned over $1.400.000 from the events.

After winning against Gen.G Esports during LCK Summer 2021 regular split, Faker spoke in a recent interview with Ashley Kang and talked about their performances, his motivation to win the League Of Legends World Championship, and more.

In the conversation, Faker revealed that he used to motivate himself to show off his talent in Worlds while proving himself as a player and earn more money. However, he mentioned that the situation is changed for him recently.

As Faker said that winning Worlds is now one of his biggest goals in his career, and he is eager to achieve his goal once again. According to Faker, the Worlds trophy is a challenge for him and that’s why he is so motivated to win it right now.

Ashley Kang asked:

“Faker, what does the worlds stage mean to you, for you right now?”

Faker replied:

“Yes, I’ve been to a few worlds. However, the motivation for me to keep returning to that stage has changed since then. Back in the early days, I just simply wanted to win. My goal was to prove myself as a player.

However, right now, I set worlds as the biggest driving force for me.  So it’s the goal that I set for myself, in order to achieve that motivation… Like, how do I say this. Right now, my goal is to win worlds. And I’m motivated to win worlds to achieve the goal I have set.

Because, in the early days, it wasn’t necessarily about the goal of winning worlds. It was more about… I wanted to show myself off and get the spotlight. I wanted to make lots of money. But now, worlds trophy just by itself is a challenge for me. That aspect changed.”
