G2 Esports took down Machi Esports on the third day of Worlds in one intensive match.Wunder was spectacular in the top lane on Camille, destroying the Machi Esports squad all around the map. He finished the game with a score of 8/3/6, 338 creeps and 18.4k gold. His roams around the map were superb, helping his teammates to snowball and eventually take over the game.
Machi Esports on the other hand played really well. They were seen as the underdog in this match, yet they delivered a nice performance. Top laner PK was amazing in particular, he managed to stay even with Wunder who was destroying everyone on the map. Had he fallen behind a bit more, Wunder would’ve destroyed everyone much earlier. Going forward, Machi should play around their top lane since he looks like the best player in the roster so far during 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.
