Suning won the tiebreaker for the first place and will avoid other first seeds in other groups. They played really well with SofM taking over the game once again after winning the last game against G2 Esports. His insane performance makes him worthy of a MVP title during this Worlds. Even if Suning might drop out in the next stages, he made a furor on the international stage and might become one of the most-sought free agents in LPL.
G2 on the other hand will need to step it up if they want to have a chance at taking down other LPL teams. With possibly all four LPL teams making it out to the next stage, G2 will need to take down at least one in order to win the title this year. While Caps has looked superb, Jankos looked quite off and will need to fix his mistakes.
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 with 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 began 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.
