DRX destroyed FlyQuest in one of the most one-sided games of Group D. The Korean representatives popped off in all lanes with the help from jungle Pyosik on Kindred. His performance was insane, securing early leads everywhere and obtaining the fourth Kindred marks very early on, which allowed him to become an unstoppable beast. Santorin tried to match Pyosik in the jungle, however, it was not enough to stop the Kindred from running other members of FlyQuest down.
DRX was known as chokers in the past, however, that changed under the guidance of cvMax, the coach which helped Griffin achieve a lot on the local and international stage. Chovy in particular has changed a lot in the middle lane, popping off everywhere and no longer defaulting to his other playstyle known as Choky. His performance might net him his first World Championship is he keeps his performance up.
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.
