JDG annihilated the PCS representatives in one of the most one-sided matches during this year’s World Championship. LPL’s second seed was on fire with mid lane Yagao leading the charge. He played superb on Ekko, finishing the game deathless with a 3/0/9 score, snowballing his teammates with his roams. The PCS representative, PSG Talon went through significant roster changes. They began their play-in phase with 3 substitutes and even though the team was not full of core members, they’ve dominated the play-ins and looked like one of the best teams coming into groups.

They however couldn’t replicate their performance with their main roster, falling down to the might of JD Gaming, who are set to earn themselves their first World Championship. Another honorary member from JDG who popped off was LokeN with his Ashe. His arrows from the bottom lane were impactful and allowed JDG to secure objectives without issues.

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.
