Team Liquid looked really good in the second round-robin, winning two out of three matches. Their last match against Machi Esports was a banger with Liquid popping off in all lanes. Tactical was superb in particular on Senna. His support CoreJJ on Pantheon was amazing as well, this duo looks like one of the best duo lanes in LCS and the region should have high hopes for the future with such challengers. Broxah looked amazing on Lillia as well, finishing the game deathless after an amazing performance.
Machi looked amazing this year’s World Championship, however, they weren’t able to get out of groups. Even against tougher opponents, they didn’t give up. They played their hearts out and almost took down opponents multiple times, but that was not enough. They fell short of taking down multiple teams. Their only win was against Liquid in the first round robin.
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.
