Faker: High ping at MSI impacted T1’s performance, but doesn’t matter as long as fans have the best experience

The first stage of the League of Legends 2022 Mid-Seasonal Invitational just ended, but not without issues. A discrepancy in latency in the venue affected teams playing from Busan, as confirmed by Riot Games, and not even T1 star mid laner Faker was exempt from it. But according to him, the issues don’t matter as much—provided fans around the world have a good show to watch.

“[Higher ping] did impact our play, and still it is kind of impacting our performance,” Faker told Dot Esports in an interview. The mid laner felt T1 played with higher latency than usual in the past days of the competition, and he believes the team can play “differently” with a ping te below 10.
