TITLE : Secret Behind Faker’s Triumph Is Learning From Process Rather Than From Outcome

Secret Behind Faker’s Triumph Is Learning From Process Rather Than From Outcome
 



T1 Faker: "I hate to lose, and it's really fun to compete with the best  players around the world." - Inven Global

 

 

– Esports star ‘Faker’ (Lee Sang-hyeok), who clinched victory last weekend in the League of Legends (LoL) World Championship, commonly referred to as the ‘LoLdcup,’ revealed the secret behind his triumph, stating, “I can learn a lot when I make it a goal to focus on the process regardless of the game’s outcome.”

 

Faker, securing his fourth triumph in 10 years, shared this insight during a press conference held after the conclusion of the 2023 LoLdcup final at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Sunday.

 

Despite winning the LoLdcup in 2013, 2015, and 2016, Faker had faced a prolonged drought in global championships. 

 

“I even envisioned the possibility of losing 3-0 in the final match of this LoLdcup. Nevertheless, I tried to maintain a mindset of smiling irrespective of the outcome. Conversely, I also endeavored to stay emotionally calm even after a triumph,” he explained. 

 

He added, “I believed that if I maintain a learning-oriented approach, it would eventually lead to winning the LoLdcup, and I am very grateful for this fortunate victory this time.”

 

Faker offered advice to those seeking motivation, stating, “Personally, I am vulnerable to addiction. I aim to make significant improvements next year. I am strongly addicted to YouTube and TikTok, and I know many people struggle with such addictions. I will strive to reduce these habits, so let’s tackle it together.”
