LGD Gaming has redeemed itself with a huge win over the TSM roster. The Chinese fourth seed was seen quite weak after the play-in stage, however, they stepped up huge during the main event. Xiye in particular has looked spectacular in the middle lane, popping off on a huge variety of champions. He was too much for Bjersen to deal with. His Orianna landed all ultimate and combos to delete the TSM roster multiple times.

TSM looked quite poor so far, being unable to deal with any teams in their group. They look on track to become a team with no wins during this year’s Worlds. Doublelift’s record of not getting out of groups will most likely grow with one this year once again. LGD can easily get out of groups if they keep up their performance. While Gen.G look like the best team, Fnatic looks like a beatable beast so far.

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.
