In partnership with automotive manufacturer Mercedes-Benz, Riot Games will launch several in-game and out-of-game League of Legends initiatives to commemorate Faker's achievements.

As the first Hall of Legends inductee, Faker will be celebrated with a special in-game event. The event will feature an event pass that will take players on a journey through many memorable moments of Faker's career. Fans will also be able to earn and purchase in-game cosmetic items based on the professional player and his journey in League of Legends.

First unveiled in January 2024, the Hall of Legends aims to honor those who have graced the League of Legends scene. The inaugural class of inductees was selected by an independent panel of esports industry veterans and experts.

Mercedes-Benz will also contribute to the commemoration by creating a piece of art for the player highlighting his or her greatest achievements. In addition, Faker will receive a customized Mercedes-AMG SL 63.

More details on the in-game event and Mercedes-Benz awards will be announced in the coming weeks.

Since his debut in 2013, Faker has become one of the most recognizable names in League of Legends and esports. As a mid-laner for esports organization T1, he has won 10 LCK titles, two Mid-Season Invitational titles, and four World Championship trophies, earning him the nickname "The Unkillable Demon King".
