FlyQuest won their last match of the World Championship, finishing the group stages with a bang and 3-3 scoreline. Had they won at least one more game, they could’ve gotten out of the group stage. However, they still performed really well and are worthy of being called one of LCS’s best showing this year. They were in one of the hardest groups and still managed to almost climb out of the jaw of death.
Santorin looked like the best performing LCS jungler this year and might look for some other offers if given the opportunity. He performed on par with other LCK and LPL junglers, keeping his team in the game even when they were losing quite hard. PowerOfEvil looked quite fine as well, however the other 3 members were outclassed overall. Their run this year has ended and we might see some changes in the offseasons.
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.
