The best plays of the best player in 'League of Legends'
The best player in League of Legends may not qualify for game's biggest tournament, the Season 4 World Championships. His team, SK Telecom T1 K, may not have a chance to defend their Season 3 title. They probably don't deserve one, based off this year's results.
But SK Telecom T1 K’s win at the NiceGameTV League of Legends Battle this weekend, on the back of a dominating performance by the player some call “god,” is giving fans hope SKT just might pull off a miracle.
Can Faker lead his team back to the World Championships, despite their poor form this year? Will SK Telecom T1 K rise from the ashes, and return to their rightful place at the top of League?
This highlight video, put together by Faker fanatic FakerLivestream, who says he watches his deity all day, every day, paints Faker as the superhero Batman from the Dark Knight trilogy: fallen, but ready to rise again when we need him most.
Because Faker's the hero League of Legends deserves, but not the one it needs right now. Or something like that?
Heady comic book metaphors aside, the Zed-on-Zed action and the Riven one-versus-three near the end of the video might just be the slickest things you’ll ever see.
SK Telecom T1 K will have two chances to qualify for the World Championships this year, where they would have a shot at defending their title. First they will face Samsung Galaxy White in a tie-breaker, with the winner earning a spot. The team who falls will then play another best-of-five series against the last team left in a qualifying tournament dubbed “The Gauntlet."
If Faker can pull off some more plays deserving to be in this video, SK Telecom T1 K should do just fine.
