INTZ took down Team Liquid in a very dominating fashion, ending NA’s undefeated streak. The Brazilian representatives popped off on all lanes but top lane Tay was on another different level. He picked Camille into Renekton and played the match-up perfectly, finishing the game with a 5/1/3 scoreline, 322 creep kills and 16.5k gold. He outplayed former World Champion Impact the entire game, securing huge leads for his team. The rest of the team was heavily aided by the topside and his skill, getting heavily ahead of TL members.
TL members looked outplayed this game, however that shouldn’t put a stop to their dominance in play-ins. They should regroup and analyze the mistakes in this game to ensure that they get out of play-in groups easily. Broxah played phenomenal even if they lost and has looked like on the strongest assets TL has so far.
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.
