Faker: "I like gaming because it is fair" Interview2022-04-08 10:07:00
T1's legendary mid laner Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok gave a short interview for his sponsor's channel HP Omen. The Korean star explained why he likes to play and compete, and how much money he spends on games.
[Why does he like gaming]
I always liked playing games and I still love it. I think the reason I like gaming is that it's fair.
First of all, everyone starts with the same gold, and depending on how much they commit themselves to it, everyone can achieve the gold lead. That seems to be fair to me.
[How much money Faker spends on games]
I'm the type of player who rarely spends money on games. The main purpose of playing is to have fun, right? It wouldn't be fun to play a game that you can easily win by spending money.
[Thoughts on hardest things in gaming]
I don't think there's anything hard for me other than losing the game.
Previously T1 CEO Joe Marsh confirmed the rumors about crazy Chinese offers to Faker. An undisclosed club offered him a $20M year salary. Yet Lee appeared to be not interested in it because 'he's done great financially'.
