Faker needs 124 more assists to take the top spot in LCK history.
You’re certain to shatter some competitive records if you’ve been playing League of Legends professionally for over ten years. And if you’re the best player to ever play the game, you’re nearly certain to go down in history.
Faker, a legend who played many various roles for T1, is just 124 assists away from being the LCK’s all-time leader in the category of assists despite playing the mid laner. The 26-year-old is securely in second position behind other superstars with 4,013 assists.
Faker catching up to GorillA…🔝

The only player he hasn’t yet surpassed is the well-known Korean supporter Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyun, who was a member of ROX Tigers, Longzhu Gaming, and Misfits Gaming for a season in 2019. He is regarded as one of the best players who has never won an international competition, especially after coming close to winning an MSI trophy in 2018 and finishing as SK Telecom T1’s runner-up in the 2015 World Championship.
According to League metrics aggregator Oracle’s Elixir, Faker is now slightly outside the top 10 on the 2022 LCK Summer Split assist leaderboard with 190 across 35 games. The seasoned commander has assumed a different position with this version of T1, however the rest of his statistics aren’t particularly impressive.
Faker has chosen champions with a supporting playstyle, like as Lissandra, Galio, and Seraphine, to help and push the rest of the squad to new heights throughout the 2022 Summer Split. Although T1 likes to play through their strong laners like AD carry Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong and top laner Choi “Zeus,” he does break out games against Azir, Corki, and Swain. Woo-je.
A great player, like Faker, will also adapt to his team’s demands and be able to change into whatever T1 requires of him, whether that be the carry god that most League fans are aware he is capable of becoming or a helpful mid laner.
