V3 Esports got a decisive win against Rainbow7. They have outplayed the LATAM representatives on all lanes with bot lane Archer picking up the tempo in the game on Ashe. He finished the game deathless with a 5/0/6 scoreline, 375 cs and 16.4k gold. His ultimate were on point, picking up mispositioned enemies throughout the entire game, giving him a lot of gold via assists.

V3’s early priority on Dragons paid off as well, they picked up the Infernal Dragon Soul early in the game, becoming unstopable in teamfights due to the extra damage from the Soul. R7 on the other hand looked quite shaky with star performing player Josedodo not being able to carry his team to a win. He went for a solo queue carry build when he had carries in his team due to having to carry the game himself. However, he was not able to perform to his usual play and failed to carry his team.

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.
