The LPL in the League of Legends world is second to none, but there is no region that dares the most, but also gives up on Faker because he is too consistent with the LCK.
Faker has grown beyond the stature of an ordinary famous player of LoL, he is considered a legend in the flesh of the region as well as this popular game. Even the people in power in the LCK have a certain respect for Faker that is different from other players.
Respected and valued commercially, image and professionally, Faker always receives the best treatment for players. T1 is already a big man, but many teams are ready to wave their hands to the sky if Faker will nod, especially the LPL teams.
Faker recently had the opportunity to appear on the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper (one of the 3 largest Korean newspapers) and had an interview with this newspaper and revealed many notable information. Including the story that people have been curious about for a long time is the huge transfer fee that he was offered while not negotiating a contract with T1.
According to this newspaper, Faker has revealed about an LPL team willing to pay Faker a salary of up to 20 million USD (equivalent to nearly 470 billion VND). This is clearly a number that is too large for players in any sport, even if it is a king sport like football. The team mentioned here is rumored to be Bilibili Gaming – a team with strong potential and even recruited Uzi (a legend of the LPL and once the highest-paid player in the region).
There used to be teams in the LCS that were willing to only pay Faker his salary with blank checks – checks they stamped and signed but left the value blank, Faker could fill in his own salary.
However, staying with T1 was probably a wise choice for Faker and that is one of the reasons that helped him prolong the glory of his career to 10 years. T1 is aware of Faker’s expensiveness and ability, they not only pay the highest salary in Korean Esports village – about 5 to 7 billion won (the highest is about 125 billion VND) for him, but T1 also pays attention to choose quality teammates for Faker.
Faker was even selected by ESPN as one of the national treasures of Korea, but Faker was never satisfied with what he had. With T1’s current strength, Faker can win all domestic and international titles with T1, his greatness will reach a new level that is difficult for anyone to reach, even in the present. present and future.
