Papara SuperMassive destroyed MAD Lions in their first clash with the top lane Armut taking over the game with his Wukong pick. He finished the game with a score of 7/0/8, 228 creep kills and 14.2k gold. The only SuperMassive member who didn’t perform really well was the mid lane Bolulu. Other members popped off really hard but the mid lane kept making poor mistakes. SnowFlower on Leona was a huge impact for the SUP squad. He had great engages and kept good vision control around the map.

The fourth seed from Europe looked completely devastated. They got outplayed in every lane with Humanoid in the mid lane being destroyed on Zoe. One of the favorites to get out of play-in groups got exposed quite hard. Their traditional LEC playstyle didn’t pay off. Hopefully going forward they can fix those issues if they want a chance to get out of play-ins.

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.
