DAMWON Gaming keeps making a name for themselves during this year’s World Championship. They are one of the favorites to win it all and they don’t disappoint. Showmaker looks like the best mid lane in the tournament, being very versatile with his picks from carries to utility-oriented champions. On the other hand, Nuguri in the top lane also looks like the best top lane in the world. They easily took down the PSG Talon roster without any issues encountered.
PSG tried their best to stand tall against the DAMWON roster but was no match for the Korean first seed who had one of the most dominating seasons in their career. Damwon is on fire and wants to get their first-ever World Championship title and no one can match them. They are the absolute favorites to win the tournament after such a dominant spring and summer split.
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.
