There were visible scratches and dents on the trophy that might have been the result of shipping or bad handling. The fans started another controversy around the matter, criticizing Riot Games for this behaviour and calling it embarrassing and highly disrespectful towards Faker.

Others also mention the recent $400 Arhi skin that Riot announced in the name of Faker and criticized the company for selling an overpriced skin while not being able to quality control during Faker’s prestigious moment. The Faker Arhi bundle costing 59,260 Riot Points also saw a similar backlash from the community, with many claiming that they would not be supporting this greed in the name of Faker.
