Damwon Gaming, one of the favorites to win this year’s World Championship destroyed the second seed from LPL in one of the fastest games at this year’s World Championship. The combination of solo lanes from Nuguri and ShowMaker is insane from Damwon, they look like TheShy and Rookie from the World Championship 2018. If they continue their play, then they could replicate their success and secure their first World Championship.

Canyon had a literal Canyon jungle difference between him and JDG’s Kanavi. While JDG was seen as one of the favorites to win it all, they got exposed in the first game at Worlds. DAMWON definitely cemented themself as one of the best teams at this year’s World Championship so far. JDG on the other hand need to fix some of their issues and replicate their LPL play if they want to get out of groups.

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.
