The LPL didn’t give out without a fight, winning the last match of the World Championship group stage. Top Esports got their revenge following the devastating loss to FlyQuest earlier. They popped off in all lanes, taking down the LCK second seed in a dominant fashion and showing everyone why they were considered favorites to win it all. JackeyLove is looking for his second World Championship after leaving Invictus Gaming. He looks like one of the better ADCs this year so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he gets his second World Championship title.
DRX, on the other hand, are notorious for choking during important matches so even if they got out of groups, they’ll most likely drop out of the next knockout stage. They have an issue with keeping up their good performance for longer periods and this might be their end.
The 2020 Season World Championship (Worlds 2020) is the conclusion of the 2020 League of Legends esports season. The tournament is held in Shanghai, China. The tournament began with Play-In stages on Sep. 25 and will conclude on Oct. 31 with the finals between two teams which would be arguably the best in the World.
The Main-Event stage began on Oct. 3 and will feature the best 16 teams in the World. 8 out of them will advance to the knockout stage where they’ll have a shot at advancing forward.
The format for qualification in North America and Europe changed this year, with teams only being able to qualify directly through the LCS Summer Playoffs and LEC Summer Playoffs, respectively. Seeding Changes: China and Europe both receive one extra seed for a total of four, while the PCS is given two seeds, compared to a combined four for the LMS and Southeast Asia in 2019. In summary, one main event seed previously held by the LMS is given to Europe, and the play-in seed previously held by Southeast Asia is given to China.
Due to Vietnamese teams being unable to participate, the Play-In format was heavily adjusted, and the region’s Main Event spot was given to Korea’s 3rd seed. If Vietnamese teams had been allowed to participate, Team Flash would have played in the Main Event and GAM Esports would have played in the Play-In.
