Faker’s Unbeatable Champion: The Corki Legacy

27. February 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

Throughout his illustrious career, Lee Sang-hyeok, better known as “Faker,” has showcased mastery with numerous champions in League of Legends. While Faker has left his mark with many iconic picks, there’s one champion that often goes unnoticed among his best yet remains undefeated alongside him for over 5 years.

Corki: Faker’s Hidden Gem

With three skins in the game and anticipation building for the fourth, there are several contenders for Faker’s best champion. However, one often overlooked contender stands out for its consistent success. Corki holds a special place in Faker’s arsenal, boasting an undefeated streak that spans nearly five years.

Faker’s Last Corki Defeat: A Blast from the Past

To pinpoint the last time Faker suffered defeat while playing Corki, we must rewind to 2019. During the LCK Summer Split, with T1 poised for back-to-back championships, Faker showcased his prowess on the classic Corki, wielding the Trinity Force variant.

Despite Faker’s stellar performance, a creative Sandbox Gaming composition featuring Karma in the bot lane, piloted by Jang “Ghost” Yong-jun—later a world champion with Damwon—handed Faker’s Corki a rare loss.

Since that defeat, Corki has remained undefeated in Faker’s hands. Notable performances include the 2020 LCK Summer Split finals, where Faker’s Corki dominated against Gen.G’s Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk and Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong.

Faker’s Dominance Continues

In his most recent appearance with Corki, Faker played a pivotal role in T1’s victory over kt Rolster in the Telecom War last week. This victory extended Faker’s and Corki’s winning streak to an impressive 21 games. Faker’s Corki, known for its exceptional poking abilities, continues to shine, showcasing Faker’s unparalleled understanding of the champion.

In terms of statistics, as of February 26, 2024, Faker maintains an impressive 76.9% win rate with Corki across 52 games (40 wins – 12 losses). Corki ranks as Faker’s fifth most played champion and holds his personal record for farm per minute. Notably, Faker has never been defeated with the Ability Power and poking variant of Corki.


Will anyone be able to break Faker’s nearly 5-year undefeated streak with Corki? Only time will tell as Faker continues to dominate the Rift with his unparalleled skills and mastery of this iconic champion.
