Lee Sang-hyeok (Korean: 이상혁, born May 7, 1996), known by his in-game name "Faker" (Korean: 페이커), is a South Korean professional League of Legends player who is considered by many to be the best League of Legends player of all time. Formerly known as "GoJeonPa" (Korean: 고전파) on the Korean server, he was picked up by SK Telecom in 2013 and is currently the mid laner for SK Telecom T1, which competes in the League of Legends Champions Korea.
Faker is renowned for his high mechanical skill at the game and his ability to play any champion at the top professional level. He is best known for playing LeBlanc, Cassiopeia, Zed, Orianna, Ahri and Ryze. He is consistently ranked number one by analysts and is often referred to as the "God" of League of Legends. A top rival to Faker is Song "Smeb" Kyung-ho, who was the 2015 and 2016 MVP of the league (with Faker being runner-up in 2016), where Faker's SKT defeated Smeb's KOO Tigers in the 2015 World Championship final and ROX Tigers in the 2016 World Championship semi-final. Another contemporary to Faker is Kang "Ambition" Chan-yong; their teams met in the 2016 and 2017 World Championship Finals with Ambition's Samsung Galaxy winning the latter.
Faker is one of only two players, along with a former teammate Bengi, to have won the League of Legends World Championship three times, having done so in the 2013, 2015 and 2016 seasons. He has also won the All-Star Paris 2014, Mid-Season Invitational tournament in 2016, Mid-Season Invitational tournament in 2017 and IEM World Championship 2016.
