LGD Gaming got revenge after their poor performance in the first two World Championship days. They demolished the V3 Esports organization in a very convincing fashion. LGD’s bottom lane Kramer was at the centerpiece of this action, picking Jhin and destroying the opposition. He finished the game with a 10/0/6 score, 329 creep kills and 17.7k gold. He was heavily assisted by jungle Peanut on Kindred who saved his life multiple times with his ultimate.
Another honorable mention goes to mid lane Xiye who used Syndra to great effect. His crowd control in teamfights was superb, giving Kramer the room he needed to perform. He had a much better performance compared to his previous games, showcasing what he has been known for in the LPL. He finished the game with a 5/2/8 score, 310 creep kills and 15.3k gold. Had he not performed so well, Kramer would’ve died multiple times.
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.
