Team Liquid destroyed SuperMassive in a 40-minute clash with mid lane Jensen leading the charge. He played Sylas to great success, finishing the game with a 8/1/10 scoreline, absolutely demolishing the TCL representatives. He was heavily aided by superstar EU jungler Broxah in the jungle on Graves, who helped Jensen snowball. Broxah has been a huge defining piece of Team Liquid and has aided them secure NA’s third seed for this years Worlds Championship.

On the other hand, SuperMassive got exposed with mid lane Bolulu being outplayed on his Akali pick. After playing utility or supportive champions in their previous games, he was given an assassin with which he didn’t perform at all. Going forward, SUP will most likely need to draft him another tank or utility mid lane if they want a chance at advancing to the main event. Bolulu looks much better on them.

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.

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.
