At the present time, perhaps fans are just watching how T1 will break their own records, not discussing who wins.
The journey of the LCK Spring 2023 has gradually come to an end and the situation at this time can be said to be gradually decided. Currently, the rankings of the teams on the rankings are almost not much different from Spring 2022. It is remarkable that T1 not only maintained its winning streak, but also lost foolishly to Hanwha Life Esports but also lost to Hanwha Life Esports. Stop. However, many people considered this to be a test loss, a small accident but did not affect anything. The proof is that in the second leg, they defeated HLE with a glorious 2-1 victory.
It is known that the victory over HLE not only means revenge for the first leg but also helps strengthen T1’s position in the rankings. Accordingly, with the victory, Faker and his teammates became the first LCK team to have 15 or more victories in 3 consecutive seasons. Specifically, Spring 2022 (18 wins – 0 losses), Summer 2022 (15 wins – 3 losses) and Spring 2023 (15 wins – 1 loss).
In the immediate future, T1 still has 2 more matches in week 9 and this record can be more complete than any team can only wish. T1’s achievements not only help the team affirm their level, but also show that they are the best hero of the LCK today. From a stable team like Gen.G Esports, Dplus KIA to an “all-star” lineup like HLE, they all failed to defeat T1 admirably.
This quickly raised a concern for the LCK region. Specifically, in some recent seasons, T1 has always been very strong in the domestic arena, but when reaching out to the big sea, T1 often encounters many difficulties. Typically MSI 2022, when T1 has just set the longest unbeaten record in League of Legends history. Then when they entered the first international tournament of the year, they had trouble with Saigon Buffalo itself.
Currently, T1 is developing an extremely creative gameplay. However, they need to realize the results in the international tournament. That lesson is still there, so Faker and his teammates need to be more careful to be satisfied with the achievements they have achieved, to avoid the grim situation of the past repeating.
