Rainbow7 popped off against the Unicorns of Love. Mid laner Aloned was in the center of this action with his Lucian pick. He has dominated the Unicorns in a very dominant fashion, finishing the game deathless with a scoreline of 9/0/8, 253 creep kills and 14k gold. He was given an early lead by the jungle Josedodo, who popped off on Evelynn. Josedodo has performed really well at this World Championship and could look to secure a place in another major region.
UOL though got exposed and got destroyed in every lane. They even picked Skarner, an underperforming champion in the jungle who did nothing. AHaHaCiK performed really poorly in this game and should look to focus on his other strong picks if UOL want a chance to get out of Play-Ins. Nomanz did really well though considering how dominant Aloned was with his Lucian.
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.
