T1’s victory at the 2023 League of Legends World Championship is a historic milestone in esports. The team, led by the legendary Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok, claimed its fourth World title, a feat unparalleled in the game’s history.
Faker, a name synonymous with League of Legends, has maintained his status as the greatest player of all time, despite a title drought since 2016. This victory has further cemented his legacy.
T1’s Path to Glory
T1’s journey to the 2023 LoL World Championship was fraught with challenges. The team, having consistently shown strength, often fell short of claiming the ultimate prize in recent years. Just last year, their hopes were dashed by DRX’s historic underdog run. Adding to the hurdles, Faker’s injury earlier this year led to the team’s performance decline.
Key Players in the Historic Win
While Faker’s leadership and in-game prowess were crucial, other team members played significant roles in the victory. Zeus, for instance, was instrumental in outmatching opponents in the top lane, creating significant pressure throughout the series.
T1’s future looks promising as Faker has already signed through 2025. Although there’s speculation about the team’s roster for the next year, this win has already etched the current lineup in the LoL esports history.
