Unicorns of Love keep making a name for themselves at this year’s World Championship. They destroyed an emerging PSG Talon in strong fashion, finishing the game with a 6k gold lead. Their tactic of double AP in the mid lane and bottom lane is proving really efficient with no enemies being able to answer it. Nomanz on Orianna looked fabulous, landing great combos and ultimate in every teamfight. Bottom lane Gadget popped off on Swain in the bottom lane, which was quite popular some months ago.
PSG Talon still look strong even after this loss. They put up a good fight to the Unicorns of Love, who were seen as the favorites to get out of groups. Bottom laner Dee played really well considering that he is a coach for another team. His lack of professional play in the past months wasn’t seen considering his performance in the past couple of games.
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.
