Legacy Esports took down the TCL in a very dominant fashion. Mid laner Tally popped off once again, this time on Sett. He finished the game deathless with a score of 4/0/15, destroying the TCL representatives. His performance throughout the entire play-ins has been looking great and he might be landing a LCS spot next split if he continues his performance. Another notable player in OPL’s squad was the top lane Topoon who played Ornn really well. He was a huge initiator for his team, securing a ton of kills thanks to his ultimates.
Papara SuperMassive will need to fix their issues going forward if they want to qualify for main event. They need to funnel resources into their top lane Armut, who looks like one of the best top laners this Worlds so far. He has been the shining beacon of light in their wins and they focus resources into him, the might carry them to the next stage.
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.
