-The world champion returns to the LoL scene after a voluntary absence. 

-Faker joined T1 for their victory over G2 this past Saturday.

-Gen.G is underdog (+195) ahead of Thursday’s match vs DWG KIA (-256)

“I am not in my best shape, but it’s better than when I stepped down.” – said Faker to the journos at Inven Global a few days ago, while attempting to explain the circumstances behind his brief absence from the LoL stage.

Faker came right on the brink of time, to assist his T1 team and secure a 2-nothing victory on Saturday morning. The last Spring Split weekend included a few other matches between several other top teams of the local Korean league. See the results below:

Faker “Needed Some Time”

Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok asked his coach for some time off, and it looks like he got his request!

According to the article posted also on Saturday by online magazine InvenGlobal.com, Faker asked out – though only temporarily – due to issues with his ‘form’ and equipment:

At that time, my form wasn’t that good. There were other issues like equipment as well, so when Daeny asked me if I could play, I answered that I needed some time. Also, Clozer was doing great at that time.”

To speak the honest esports truth, T1 has been dealing with some “adjustment” issues lately, as the team members learned the tricky tricks of effective group-action. Unfortunately for T1, roster changes over the summer left the ensemble feeling a little shaky, and it took them a long-a** time to reach a point of “nirvana”, so to speak.

Faker’s return did them well: T1 took a worthy 2-0 win vs Gen last Saturday. They will face DROX this coming Friday.
