Faker has been arguably the best player in the world. The 3 time world champion is a player that any team would dream to have on their team. Not only is his raw skill way above other players in the game, but his game sense and experience in the game is also equally valuable.
No team would want to let go of a player of such calibre and SKT were fast on the trigger to sign him up for a two year contract deal valued at $2.5 million. The contract would enable SKT to yet again aim for the worlds and the glory that comes along with it. This lockdown would prevent other teams from signing him or even approaching him once the window opens up.
The news about Faker’s renewal was broken by Faker via his Twitter.
