Team Liquid pulled off the unthinkable during the fourth day of the World Championship. They took down the 2019 Worlds Finalists in a close match with Jensen taking the lead on Orianna. His performance throughout the entire game was huge, taking over the mid lane against Caps from the get-go. He was heavily assisted by Broxah in their domination, who camped the mid lane and ensured Jensen would be able to transition properly into the mid-game.

G2 on the other hand got exposed quite hard on every lane. Caps in particular with his Jayce pick was a non-factor throughout the entire game. Jayce has been regarded as one of the trap champions due to his high pickrate and low winrate. While most Jayce players get an early lead, they usually can’t convert it to objectives as the game goes by and as a result usually lose the game.

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.
