Will Faker even use his own skin?
On November 19, T1 won their fourth Worlds title. They defeated LPL’s Weibo Gaming to take home the Summoner’s Cup, designed by Tiffany and Co.
This marked mid laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok’s fourth title. It was the first for the rest of the player roster. They’ve since earned the chance to select which champions they want Worlds skins for and work with Riot to personalize them.
The Worlds skin line has been a tradition in League of Legends for the past 13 years, where Riot Games honors each team’s World Championship victory by forever immortalizing them in-game.
In the post-finals press conference, T1 players revealed exactly which champions they are considering for their Worlds 2023 skins.
T1 members and the champions they’re eyeing for their Worlds 2023 skins
Zeus — Jayce or Yone (top lane)
Top laner and Worlds 2023 finals MVP Choi “Zeus” Woo-je is eyeing either Jayce or Yone for his Worlds 2023 skin.
Throughout Worlds 2023, Zeus played Yone twice — the first time against JD Gaming in the semifinals and the second time against Weibo Gaming in the finals.
Oner — Lee Sin (jungle)
Jungler Mun “Oner” Hyeon-jun would like a Worlds 2023 skin for one of his signature champions, Lee Sin.
Oner played Lee Sin twice during game one and game three at the Worlds 2023 finals. In game one, he had a 6/1/5 KDA while he had a 5/1/11 KDA in game two.
Faker — Undecided (mid lane)
T1 star player Faker remains undecided about his Worlds 2023 skin, the fourth skin under his belt.
“I haven’t thought about it,” he said during the press conference. “I guess I’d have to come up with a champion that I want to make a skin for. I want to make sure that we make skin for a vast majority of the fans who would enjoy this skin. I don’t know if I will actually go ahead and use it, I would have to think about that.”
Looking at the champions that he played at Worlds 2023, it’s highly likely that he will pick one among these: Orianna, Azir, Sylas, Ahri, and Akali.
At Worlds 2023, he played Orianna and Azir the most, playing these champions in five matches each. Of all these champions, Orianna and Ahri are the most popular with high pick rates.
Orianna already has a Worlds skin — TPA Orianna — earned by Taipei Assassins mid laner Lau “Kurtis” “Toyz” Wai Kin at Worlds 2014.
It is also worth noting that Ahri is one of the champions featured in numerous Worlds 2023 promotional materials.
Gumayusi — Jinx (bot lane)
Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong is set on Jinx for his Worlds 2023 skin.
He played the champion once against Bilibili Gaming in the Swiss stage’s qualifier in a best-of-three series. During this match, he excelled on Jinx with a perfect KDA 11/0/3 and 11.4 CS per minute, his personal best.
Additionally, Jinx is Gumayusi’s third most-played champion of all time after Aphelios and Xayah. He holds a 73% win rate on her.
Keria — Bard or Renata Glasc (support)
Ryu “Keria” Min-seok wanted to pick Lux for his skin, but, since he didn’t play the champion in the tournament, he is considering Bard or Renata Glasc as one of T1’s Worlds 2023 skins.
The support player has a 100% win rate on both champions, with a very high KDA for Renata Glasc at 18.3.
|T1 PLAYER||DESIRED SKIN|
