FlyQuest got NA’s second win against UOL in a pretty difficult game for the major region. Fly was seen as an underdog going into the match considering UOL’s performance in the play-ins, however, Fly managed to overcome that and destroy UOL. Solo on Renekton in the top lane tried his best to throw the game, however, PowerOfEvil had none of that and managed to carry his feeding teammates. PoE was very strong on Syndra, finishing the game with a score of 9/3/3.
UOL on the other hand will have a hard time ahead. They have to face DRX and Top Esports which are much stronger than Fly. Their chances of making it out of groups will be very slim, however, nothing is impossible. The CIS representatives got out of groups once with Albus Nox Luna, they might do it once again, however, the road ahead is tough.
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.
