Faker's first Twitch stream breaks records

It must feel good to be king.

For those of you who don't know, Korean LoL team SK Telecom T1 have been streaming on Twitch recently, instead of their previous platform Azubu. Star player Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok, however, has only just started streaming, but it's gone pretty well for the player so far.

When he streamed very recently, he was pretty popular, so much so that he allegedly broke the Twitch viewing record for a stream by an individual, with 245,000 people watching him play LoL. What's more is that this is even higher than some tournament finals, like Evo 2016 Melee and BlizzCon Overwatch.

It might be worth checking out his Twitch channel some time then. Does Faker's popularity and talent show any signs of stopping?
