Rainbow7 pulled off a huge upset against China’s fourth seed, LGD Gaming. The Chinese representatives got destroyed in every lane with Rainbow7’s mid lane Aloned popping off on Orianna. He finished the game with a score of 7/2/11, 313 creep kills and 18.4k gold. On the other hand, LGD looked really poor with Peanut feeding the LLA representatives quite hard. He had a score of 2/7/7, dying too much and losing core objectives for LGD.

The bottom lane of Kramer and Mark from LGD looked quite hopeful, but they weren’t able to carry the weak topside which died a lot. After giving up four drakes and the Ocean Dragon Soul spawning, LGD had no hope against the buffed-up Rainbow7. As a result, LGD lost after a 40-minute teamfight in which Rainbow7 was buffed up with Ocean Dragon Soul and Elder Dragon. Rainbow7 played really well and look great going forward.

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.
