A groundswell of voices within the League of Legends community is echoing a fervent demand: should T1 emerge victorious in the upcoming 2023 World Championship grand final, Riot Games must bestow upon the legendary Faker a skin of epic proportions—perhaps even granting him the honor of his own champion in the game.
Fans want a unique skin for Faker if he wins Worlds again
In League of Legends, Faker stands as an undisputed icon, revered and celebrated even by those who may not closely follow the LCK. With an illustrious decade-long career, he has been a dominant force on the Rift, instrumental in T1’s triumphs, including 2 MSI titles and 3 world championships. The collective aspiration among players now centers on adding another world title to Faker’s illustrious resume this coming Sunday.
In the event of T1’s victory, a consensus among League esports fans is urging Riot to craft something truly extraordinary for Faker’s commemorative skin, potentially elevating it to Legendary status.
The anticipation is palpable, as fans eagerly await details about the potential aesthetic and thematic elements that might accompany this special in-game tribute to Faker’s legacy.
Determining the champion for Worlds skin poses an intriguing challenge, governed by Riot’s stringent rules. The eligibility criteria dictate that the winning player must have played at least one game on the chosen champion during the tournament.
For Faker, this limits his options to champions such as Azir, Orianna, and Sylas, the ones he showcased his prowess with in this year’s Worlds. However, if T1 already boasts a skin for the same League champion from a previous one, Riot might encourage a different selection, adding an extra layer of complexity to the T1 mid laner decision.
Beyond the realm of skins, some advocates are proposing even grander gestures for him, such as the creation of his own League champion or the establishment of an “Unkillable Demon King” skin line encompassing his most-played champions.
The fervor surrounding these suggestions underscores the profound impact Faker has had on the League of Legends landscape and the community’s desire to immortalize his legacy in the game’s rich tapestry. As the World Championship final approaches, the hopes and expectations surrounding his potential in-game tribute continue to build.
