Gen.G took down LGD Gaming in a very close match. Both teams were close to winning the match, with LGD Gaming reaching the Nexus of Gen.G, however they were taken down in a close teamfight. Gen.G managed to turn it around after almost losing the game and took objective after objective to scale much better than LGD. Gen.G’s top lane Rascal performed really well on Volibear, taking down the LGD Gaming squad in the next team fights. His Volibear was a joy to watch. He finished the game with a score of 7/4/5, 294 creep kills and 14.8k gold.

LGD Gaming on the other hand got outplayed hard in the later stages of the game. Peanut in particular on Lillia was exposed quite hard, looking useless after having a huge early lead. His Lillia didn’t seem that impactful towards the end when his team needed him to land the multi-man ultimates.

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.
