In part 1 of this series, we came up with the opening list for the top performing performances of all time League of Legends profession. And now, come up with the next names.
Interestingly enough, the names on this list are all worn SKT/ T1 – The greatest team in the history of League of Legends in the world. Even after being away from the peak of nearly 3 seasons, there has not been any team that has replicated the feat of winning 3 World Championships, 2 times MSI champion of SKT in the past.
Possessing such a huge treasure trove of titles, it’s not too difficult to explain why SKT owns so many saints praised as G.O.A.T in League of Legends. And now, let’s get to the next of this series:
Faker – World Championship 2017
It’s unexpected that the failed season is arguably the most painful of Faker as well as SKT at Worlds, is considered to be his holy season. Compared to the previous two championship seasons 2015 and 2016, Faker played well, but his performance was somewhat saturated by an outstanding SKT team, with players like Marin, Duke, Bengi, Bang, Wolf …
Therefore, Faker of 2017 is the more special Faker of all. SKT of Worlds 2017 was no longer as strong as before, they parted from the God of Bengi, farewell to the top laner Duke, and with those who stayed, Blank was questioned about his performance, rookies like Huni or Peanut didn’t meet expectations, Wolf had a health problem, while Bang didn’t seem to have the motivation to play.
Faker that year actually carried an unstable SKT on his own shoulders, and the climax of the peak, was the superior performance with the Demon King Galio Mid lane in the most classic Bo5 match in history. before Royal Never Give Up.
Despite the fact that the opponent owns an Uzi with a fire-fighting style and an annoying main-game play style, Faker’s Galio has shown excellent performance in all 5 games, and once again sees Uzi out. infinite regret. Although the outcome of SKT in the Final against Samsung Galaxy was extremely painful, but experts acknowledged that, Faker in that season was really “alone in the world”, only regrettably that one wing Little swallowing did not make spring, and his tears of failure have since become the most haunting moment in the hearts of fans.
Marin – World Championship 2015
Marin only maintained peak form in only one season in 2015, when he was 24 years old – too old for a professional player. But players born in 1991 need only that year to define the concept of perfection of a top laner.
The influence that Marin imposes upon his performances at Worlds 2015 is even persistent to the present. After 5 years since he helped SKT re-establish the throne, the upper half of the map has been intervened countless times by Riot, with adjusting and releasing a series of new meta, along with finding ways to limit it. Multiplayer mode of teleportation – Marin’s “second ultimate”, to the maximum.
Worlds 2015 was the year that saw the meta of top lanes, and Marin was the one who carried SKT literally. While SKT’s resources are often concentrated in the mid lane, but Faker is not in the best form, while the bot lane, Bang – Wolf has never been appreciated for the ability to win the road, Marin did it all. He is the main source of damage for the team when using attacking generals like Renekton, Fiora, Rumble, and is also a call for SKT teamfights.
League of Legends has witnessed countless top-class players who reach the world-class level like TheShy, Khan, Smeb … but no one dare to confidently assert that they will solo win an “old man” on the slope as Marin. If you clash in a professional tournament, let alone the greatness of the former SKT captain.
Mata – World Championship 2014
Mata It is a little different from the above cases, when the glory he achieved was not during his time with SKT. Mata, on the other hand, is an important factor in the Samsung Galaxy White lineup – One of the names that contributed to “knocking” SKT out of the Worlds slot that year.
Entering the tournament, Samsung White is considered to be the “backyard” team of Samsung Blue. Samsung Galaxy has even shuffled the squad of these two sister teams, to gather the individuals they consider to be excellent on SSB, while SSW is just a “legacy”.
But in the end, the “No. 2” team of the Samsung is the ones who make the world shocked. They defeated their sister SSB with a score of 3-0 blank in the Semifinals, and won the world championship with extremely terrible difference: Only lost 2 matches. (Only SKT in 2015 was better on this index, when they won the championship but lost only 1 game).
Worlds 2014 also witnessed something unprecedented in history: the MVP title belonged to a Support player – SSW Mata. In the SSW stars, Mata has become more prominent when it comes to delivering incredible performances even when playing as a Support. The ability to control the map, control the vision, use the generals of generals like Janna perfectly, has made him the king of Support – A title that even Madlife cannot reach.
Faker – World Championship 2013
Before Doinb broke the record for the number of champions used in a World Championship, this milestone belonged to Faker, with 7 generals being brought to use at Worlds 2013, by a young boy with a “milk-mouth”. A rookie who first came to Worlds, even dared to bring Riven – The champion whose strength completely depended on the player, out to “intimidate” other top stars.
But he didn’t “scare”, but did. Faker destroyed all opponents in the first season of professional play, reaching the highest ladder of glory at the age of 17. Faker of Worlds 2013 is a mid laner who possesses skills as well as tactical vision “beyond the imagination and understanding” of experts.
And simply, Faker’s age of 17 is unstoppable.
