League of Legends icon Faker might be one of the oldest players still playing, but that doesn't mean he's any worse than the younger talent. He's still one of the most hyped players at the 2024 Mid-Season Invitational, and a recent video showcasing his smart plays has players baffled once more. 

Faker might not be the top carry player he once was, but his smart plays and movements are still something fans and other pro players are amazed by. So, what did he do this time to get everyone hyped?

League of Legends has become quite convoluted throughout the last few years, which has made visibility and clarity a problem for some. This mess of visual stimulants on the screen is something that Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok, seems to be using to his advantage though, as shown by a Reddit user. 

In a video that has gone viral on Reddit, a user pointed out how Faker moved Orianna's ball around to position it perfectly without the enemy team even being able to know where it was. In the first clip, he moved Orianna's ball along the line of Smolder's ultimate, positioning it in the middle of his opponents before using shockwave. 

The second clip shows Faker using Azir's Sand Soldiers as a disguise for the ball to once again utilize it for a well-placed and timed ultimate. 

These plays have the community once again marveling at his thought process and how smart Faker actually plays the game, thinking of these small tiny details in such high-pressure situations is truly insane and help him stand above the rest of the competition. 

Orianna is one of the hardest mid laners to master due to the placement of her orb. Faker is by far one of the best Orianna players in the world and will be getting an Orianna World Championship skin later this year. It's a well deserved skin and one that fits perfectly for one of his most iconic champions.
