TL had an insane game during this year’s World Championship. They died only once with Jensen in the mid lane due to a gank. Broxah took it upon himself to carry his game. He picked Graves and finished the game with a 6/0/2 scoreline, outplaying everyone from the OPL squad. Impact in the top lane on Ornn has popped off as well, having a great laning phase and transitioning well into the mid-game.

The OPL squad played well in their first game, but was outplayed really hard by Liquid this time. The only good thing was the Lucian mid-lane but he wasn’t able to pop off too much, finishing the game with a score of 1/6/0. Their level seemed to be of a solo queue game with no cohesive moves and no objective control. Liquid on the other hand looked really prepared for this year’s Worlds and all members looked really strong.

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.
