Gen.G took down Team Solo Mid in a pretty rough match with LCS’s first seed looking hard for their first win of the World Championship 2020. Gen.G’s Ruler however told TSM not to try their luck with his Senna pick. While it took him a couple of minutes to get going after getting his core items, he was insane in the later stages of the game. His positioning and awareness as a former World Champion is not on par with anyone. He carried his team really well and finished the game with a 6/1/9 score, 320 creep kills and 17.5k gold, the most in the game.
TSM on the other hand looked poor, failing to win a single game so far during this year’s World Championship. Even though Gen.G’s team sometimes looks lackluster, Ruler always perform up to his standard. He is the best ADC at this year’s Worlds.
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.
