Sorry Everyone, Faker Re-Signs With T1

Well, the dream is over. For all the fans out there hoping Faker would grace their team with his greatness, today brings only disappointment. The star mid-laner has re-signed with T1, formerly known as SK Telecom T1, through the 2021 season.

Many thought he may depart T1 after a disappointing exit from Worlds. It’s worth noting that Faker performed very well on the international stage this year, but it wasn’t enough to get T1 over the hump. Nevertheless, T1 will now look to reload and try again next year.

Our Thoughts: Many call him the Michael Jordan of esports, and that’s a pretty apt comparison. There’s little doubt that he is the best League of Legends player of all time, although he may not be the best player currently. Still, to those who think he’s too old to make a difference, you’re deluding yourself. Faker would be an upgrade on pretty much any team not named Invictus Gaming or G2 Esports, and even those are debatable. Overall though, I’m happy to see him return to T1. There’s something to be said for the athlete who plays for one team in his career.
