LGD Gaming won the match against V3 Esports in a dominant fashion with jungle Peanut performing really well, like his time on T1. He used Graves to great success, finishing the game with a 7/1/8 scoreline, 238 cs and 14.3k gold. His performance was superb and if he keeps it up, LGD can easily qualify for Groups and even get out of them. Other notable LGD member who popped off was support Mark. His Leona engages are a thing of beauty, he shouldn’t be given this pick by enemy teams if they want to stand a chance against the LPL’s 4th seed.
V3 lost the last match of their World Championship run and will not advance going forward. While they did have a few bright moments, overall their performance was quite lackluster and they didn’t deliver the performance expected of them. They might be back next year to Worlds and hopefully in a stronger form.
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 wit 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 begins 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.
