Four-time World champion Faker continues to cement his League of Legends esports history with 600th LCK win.
He is the first player to hit 600 wins in the Korean league.

T1 is one of the most storied esports organizations in League of Legends esports. Its star player Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok is known for breaking and setting new records both domestically and internationally. He has now cemented his position as arguably the greatest player to set foot on the Summoner’s Rift as he won his 600th League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) game.

During T1’s match against DRX in the LCK Spring 2024 Split, Faker reached 600 LCK wins, a new record that sent waves across the community.


Yet Another Feather in Faker's Decorated Cap

Faker and T1 began the 2024 competitive season with an iconic win in their bags. T1 took down China's Weibo Gaming in the grand finale of Worlds 2023 and won the series comfortably with a 3-0 scoreline. Winning the fourth title on home soil was a memorable and special moment for T1.

In the LCK 2024 Spring Split match against DRX on 1st February, Faker Sang-hyeok achieved his personal 600th victory, and all of his games have been with T1 and previously SK Telecom T1 (SKT T1). Faker started his League of Legends journey with SKT T1 in 2013 and is now the first player to achieve 600 victories after playing 892 games in the LCK in his 11-year decorated career. With this victory, Faker's all time win rate in the LCK is 67.26%.

According to Iven Global, during the post-game interview, Faker talked about this milestone. He reportedly said, "It makes me realize that I've been playing for a long time. I want to continue collecting more victories in the future. Thanks for the congratulations."

Celebrating this achievement, the LCK tweeted, "ALL RECORDS LEAD TO FAKER @T1LoL. Faker has become the first player to reach 600 #LCK wins!! Congratulations to Faker, the LCK’s record trailblazer!"


Notably, the player with the second most wins in the LCK is KT Rolster's Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu, the attack damage carry (ADC) player. If you recall, the Worlds 2022 final was centered around Faker and Deft, two players who were previously schoolmates.

Deft notably has 442 wins in the second place and is still a long way away from reaching Faker's record of 600 wins.


Some more impressive stats about Faker, according to Leaguepedia are as follows:

  • The first player to reach 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2500 kills in the LCK.

  • First player to achieve 400, 500, and 600 wins in the LCK and worldwide within a single region.

  • Reached 100 international wins during Worlds 2019 after SK Telecom's second victory against Splyce in the quarterfinals, becoming the first pro to achieve this milestone.

  • Faker is also the first player to reach 800 games in the LCK and worldwide in a single region.
