August 3, 2023 | by

Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk cited a “sense of practice” as the reason for his return to the game after a month. He also added that his health has recovered a lot.

T1 won 2-0 against Guangdong in the second round of the Summer Season of the LOL Champions Korea (LCK) 2023 at Roll Park LCK Arena in Jongno, Seoul on Sunday afternoon. With this victory, T1 snapped a five-game losing streak and began to improve their performance in preparation for the playoffs.

Speaking to the press room after the game, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyuk expressed his satisfaction with the clean victory in his first game in a month. “My performance is still not good. I have to take care of my health, so I think I’m up about 50%.” He added.

“It’s not cured, but I think I need to keep getting treatment,” he shared about his wrist condition. He is adapting to a new style and routine to ensure his long-term recovery. “My old stance irritates my nerves,” he says. I’m trying to find a middle ground so that it doesn’t affect my performance,” he emphasized.

One of the reasons for his return to the game is the “sense of practice”. “We have about a week before the playoffs,” he said, “and I think we need to work on our teamwork. I made the decision because I was deemed fit to play,” he said.

Fortunately, Lee said, “I don’t feel any pain when I play.” “I will prepare well to be able to play up to T1 before the playoffs,” he vowed. 먹튀검증
