TOP Esports decided to finish the group stage of this year’s World Championship with a bang. They popped off against Unicorns of Love, completely annihilating the CIS squad in every single lane. Three members of TOP finished the game deathless. Karsa finished the game on Graves with a 7/0/8 scoreline, Knight finished on Syndra with 6/0/7 and yuyanja finished on Lulu with 1/0/19. LPL’s first seed are the favorites to win it all so it’s not a surprise that they popped off against a minor region team.

UOL were very dominant in play-ins, however it’s not enough for the group stage. Even though they were put with LPL’s first seed and LCK’s second seed in a group, they still could’ve pulled out more surprise picks and tactics. Playing standard isn’t rewarding since major region teams outperform them in every base. Hopefully we’ll get to see more of UOL next year.

The 2020 Season World Championship (Worlds 2020) is the conclusion of the 2020League 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.
