Faker has reached a new feat in his League of Legends career. He’s the first player to compete in 600 games in the LCK, the league revealed on stream earlier today.

Lately, he’s been missing from the LCK with T1 making constant roster changes in hopes of creating the perfect League lineup capable of bringing home another world championship. But today, he came back with a vengeance and helped T1 secure a win against Nongshim RedForce.

Faker is one of the oldest League players. He made his debut in February 2013 for SKT Telekom T1 2 and has been playing for the same organization, which is now known as T1, for over eight years. He’s managed to win three League world championships with various rosters and he was a focal point of their victories every time.

Throughout his career, Faker has been the first player in the LCK to also reach the 1,000 and 2,000 kill marks. Even with a lot of experience and three world titles under his belt, it doesn’t seem like retirement is on Faker’s mind. He manages to keep up with the hungry rookies to this day, showing his mechanical prowess on various champions.

You can catch Faker in action during T1’s next matchup against Fredit BRION on Saturday, Feb. 6 at 2am CT.
