Papara SuperMassive took down the Brazilian representatives in a devastating 30-min game. Top laner Armut decided to show everyone how to solo carry the game as Shen. He finished the game deathless with a scoreline of 10/0/6, picking up most kills of his team. In the drafting phase, analysts were questioning how would SUP carry the game without any damage in their team and they showed them in-game, via the top lane Shen of course.
INTZ lived up to their name and inted in most lanes, dying everywhere during the landing phase and falling behind. They were unable to stop the bleeding and kept falling behind on gold and resources. One huge mistake was their draft didn’t focus on punishing SUP’s utility oriented composition and instead played straight into them. INTZ gave SUP a lot of time to scale and paid for it as the game went by since SUP got too strong for INTZ to handle and finished the game.
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.
