FNC took down the fourth seed of LPL in convincing fashion, securing a slot in the Quarterfinals and eliminating LGD from the World Championship. FNC’s top lane Bwipo took over the game on Volibear, a champion which became notorious during this year’s World Championship. He has been pick or ban status due to how good he is, even when blind picked. Selfmade also helped him snowball quite hard on Hecarim. The duo played really well and ensured FNC took over the early game.

On the other side LGD Gaming looked quite poor. Their play-in stage was quite rough as they barely scrapped a main event slot. Even after getting that slot, their group was quite rough with FNC and Gen.G being seen as favorites. While Peanut popped off in a couple of games, he was quite inefficient on the meta picks, costing his team plenty of games.

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.
