JD Gaming came into this tournament as one of the favorites to win it all. They had a rough start, but they came back strong in the second round-robin. Yagao is on par with other top tier mid laners in the tournament such as Caps and Showmaker. He keeps popping off in all JD Gaming matches, taking down enemies with ease. One of the strong suits of this LPL squad is Zoom in the top lane as well. That player is regarded as one of the best top laners in the world and it’s great to see him on the international stage.
Rogue tried their best with some interesting drafts to stop JD Gaming, but were unsuccessful. JD Gaming was the superior team today as they took down everyone. Yagao will get the MVP of the tournament if he keeps up his performance like this.
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.
