Fnatic took down the Gen.G beast in one of the most interesting back-and-forth games during this year’s Worlds. Selfmade popped off on Graves which allowed Fnatic to take early leads and ensure that they get their core items early on. On the other side, Bdd in the mid lane was a huge pillar of support for his team, stopping Fnatic in their tracks to dominate the Korean team. However, Bdd’s efforts were not enough as they kept falling one after another to Fnatic’s might.
The pressure from Fnatic allowed them to secure three dragons and on the way to an Mountain Dragon Soul, however the game didn’t reach that point with Gen.G losing their nexus long before that. Selfmade has been one of the best junglers in LEC and looks like one of the best at Worlds. He is self-sufficient and can decide games by himself in most cases.
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.
