T1 sweep 2023 League of Legends World Championships
T1 collected another title when they won a one-sided final against Weibo Gaming at the 2023 League of Legends World Championships on Sunday.
The South Korean juggernaut - who lost just one game on their way to the finals - defeated their Chinese rivals 3-0 at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Sunday.
Weibo Gaming enjoyed a brighter start in Game 1, but the coveted late-game squeeze came on strong from T1 as they began to control objectives and get the upper hand in team fights, leading to victory.
Unfortunately for Weibo, that was as good as it got, as the final became incredibly one-sided. After putting one hand on the trophy by winning Game 2, Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok treated fans to a clinic with Akali, blowing the opposition away in Game 3.
"With these world championships, I was personally curious what level of performance I would achieve if I focused more on the process without worrying about winning or losing," said the LoL megastar after securing his fourth World's title.
"I was able to learn a lot through this championship and I feel very grateful to be a part of it, and I think my performance improved greatly by concentrating solely on the match.
"My most important goal is to continue to learn and grow, and I will show my fans that I continue to grow during my professional career, and if the fans are happy or get a lot of inspiration because of that, that would be great."
