The world’s best League of Legends player Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has predictable yet impressive goals for 2017, and in an interview with Daily eSports’ Nam Yun-Sung, said that he wishes to continue to collect trophies.
“My goal is to win as many tournament wins as possible, including my third consecutive world championship,” he said.
With the creation of a KT Rolster team with returning Korean talent, Faker also said that he is aware of KT’s potential and expects fun bouts for the fans to watch.
“KT has acquired many impressive players during the offseason, making the telecommunications rivalry very interesting,” he said. “I will show exciting games that the fans are expecting, and will work hard to make sure that SK Telecom comes out on top.”
On the topic of Faker’s allegedly mountainous salary, he didn’t comment with any specifics, only that he thinks “SKT has offered a large sum in a way for them to tell me to keep up the good work,” and that he fully intends to do so.
With some concerns of fatigue from the team’s coaching staff for making so many back-to-back tournament finals from 2016, Faker said that the fatigue has yet to be a problem for him, and that he looks after his health as well.
“I’m still young so I’m not lacking in stamina, and though I do not work out I always stretch before practice and take health supplements such as vitamins,” he said.
