PSG Talon destroyed Unicorns of Love in a dominant fashion, popping off in all lanes and shutting down the aggressive Russian playstyle. Konguye and Uniboy popped off once again on Lillia and Orianna. The borrowed duo by PSG Talon will be felt in the group stage due to how dominant they were. The duo pretty much carried PSG Talon through play-ins, completely annihilating the opposition and leaving no room for errors. It’s unclear how their team didn’t make it considering how well they played.

Unicorns of Love played pretty poorly in all lanes and paid the ultimate price with a game loss. However, this loss shouldn’t affect them too much, they’ve performed really well during play-ins and need to work on some in-game mistakes and they can be a good contender to get out of groups. AHaHaCiK has been looking like one of the best junglers from play-ins and if he can keep the momentum going, he will perform really well.

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 wit 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 begins 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.
