MSI 2022: Faker says he doesn’t see himself as the leader of T1

In an exclusive interview with Mais Esports held this Wednesday (11), the three-time world champion and two-time MSI champion mid laner, faker, declared that he does not see himself as a leader of the T1, even though the squad has been reformulated with young players, whether from other teams or from the organization’s own base.

“The players have had experience on other teams and at T1 Academy, so I don’t necessarily see myself as a leader, they’re already very good at what they do,” said Faker.

Speaking of the T1 squad, the player was asked if this team has the potential to dominate the competitive landscape of League of Legendsas T1 itself, formerly called SKT. Faker quietly declares that he does, but says he just wants to have the chance to “give a good performance to the fans.”

The experienced mid laner also says that the team has evolved considerably from last year to now, especially in the collective game.

Former players on the coaching staff: Faker’s request

At the beginning of the 2022 season, T1 hired Bengi, a former player of the organization itself, but this time for the position of coach, along with moment, forming the team’s coaching staff. In conversation with Mais Esports, the CEO of the org, Joe Marsh, said that the arrival of an ex-player to the staff was a request from Faker. The player explained:

I always wanted to have a coach with a professional level, so this time it wasn’t anything different or special, I’ve always had the same opinion. If you have a former player as a coach, he can help players when they have a conversation or debate about something from within the game.

It is worth remembering that, in addition to Bengi, Moment was also a player, but without a career as extensive as the first.

Finally, Faker talked about the great rivals in the dispute for this MSI title, the Royal Never Give-up, from China. It turns out that the team LPL has already won two Mid-Season titles, as well as T1, and therefore, equal to Faker. In the current Chinese squad, only Xiaohu and Ming were present in both achievements.

However, for the South Korean, it doesn’t matter much to want to stop other players from beating their records. “I prefer to just focus on my game and what I have to do, and if I put in the effort, the rest will follow, just like the records.”

T1 remains undefeated after two days of MSI 2022accumulating victories over Saigon Buffalo and Team AZE. This Thursday (12), Faker and company return to the Rift to end the first round of this Group Stage, where they will face the Japanese from DFM. A win forwards the ranking of the LCK champions.
