Faker: 'I'm only at 50% performance' 8

Faker commented on his performance on the first day of competition after returning to LCK Summer 2023.

On August 2, T1 destroyed KDF with a score of 2-0 in the final week of the LCK Summer 2023 group stage. This was the first match that Faker returned after 4 consecutive weeks of rest.

With the presence of the captain, T1 shows a completely different face, good macro, methodical fight setup and proper snowballing, completely different from the tired T1 we have seen in the past 4 weeks.
