T1 took down DPlus KIA with ease as they solidified their spot as the number one team going into the LCK playoffs. League of Legends legend, Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok also managed to set himself apart from the competition, breaking another milestone ahead of the competition.
Fans have been raving this season about Faker and his current form and T1 have been tearing up the LCK with a single hiccup early on against Hanwha Life Esports. Now, with a solid win, they're the undisputed best team in the world currently.
LoL: Faker Hits 2800 Kills in LCK Kill Leaderboard
Faker is having a season like no other. He's at the top of his game and in a form that we only remember from 2015 or 2016. With T1 sticking to the same roster as the 2022 season, the team has been able to further their chemistry, giving them an edge over other, newly built rosters in the 2023 LCK Spring Season.
It isn't just their chemistry though, but their read on the meta has also been second to noen, with T1 basically creating the current meta that is being played in pro. All this has led to Faker widening the gap between himself and other iconic League of Legends players.

With 2802 kills after their 2-0 win over DPlus KIA, Faker has now widened the gap between himself and second place Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu who has 2397 kills.
Faker Defies "Too Old" Statement
Faker is the oldest player currently playing in the LCK at 26-years. DPlus KIA bot laner Deft is also 26 and yet both of these superstars are in amazing form and continue to play at the highest level of League of Legends possible without any issues.
This has got multiple fans entranced and also stating that age isn't the issue with many players and that it's simply a myth that all you need in League of Legends is reaction time. Some fans are pointing out that esports is just stigmatized when it comes to age of players.
Faker has spoken out multiple times that his age is not affecting him, but rather his mental state. When comparing his play now to that of him in 2017 or 2018, when SKT T1 was struggling, there is a large difference and it all comes down to his mental.
With having signed a 3-year contract, we're wondering just how many more kills Faker will accumulate in the LCK before his retirement.
