LCK has conducted a series of Korean server recalls and immediately one name mentioned by LPL fans is Faker, I don’t know if he is affected or not.
The past 2022 can be considered a troubled year for Faker for some LPL players. Accordingly, the incident stemmed from when Faker directly complained on the livestream that there were some acts of breaking the LCK server. The accounts that Faker publicly denounced were then investigated for the identity and ownership of the LPL players. The most prominent is the case between Faker and Qingtian.
After this incident, many LPL and VCS players have confirmed that their Korean rank accounts have been deleted or revoked. As with Doinb’s case, he tried to find a climbing account but was powerless and could only livestream on the LPL server. Meanwhile, the withdrawal of Korean rank was once believed to be the cause of GAM’s difficulties in the first half of VCS Summer 2022.
However, in a recent announcement, Riot Korea has confirmed that they will stop providing Korean ranked accounts for teams outside the LCK region. The announcement also said that Riot LCK has provided many accounts for teams outside the region to practice, but because some cases have used accounts in an unintended way, Riot decided to pause.
Riot also said that previous rental accounts have also been gradually withdrawn, and all procedures will be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2023. On the other hand, Korean Riot has also confirmed that they will still provide accounts for teams coming to this area to practice.
Immediately after the announcement from the LCK side, many LPL viewers thought of Faker. Although it may not have a direct impact, but with its influence, the Faker and Qingtian incident has played a big part in promoting Riot Korea to make the above tough decision.
