After playing for around four hours, DAMWON Gaming won the coveted League of Legends World Championship in the early Saturday afternoon. In the grand finale of Worlds 2020, the Korean representatives defeated Suning with the result 3:1, which certainly did not please the audience of 6,000 gathered in Shanghai, mostly supporting the LPL team.
The result of Saturday’s match, of course, had a lot of echo in social media, and it should probably come as no surprise that after such a significant success, congratulations are coming from all over for the DWG.
“Congratulations DAMWON. What a tournament dominance. It is possible that we are witnessing the beginning of a new dynasty,” wrote Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere, well-known to European LoL fans.
“From start to finish. They lived up to expectations, the pressure did not eat them up. Korea returns to the throne,” echoed Daniel “Rajon” Pastusiak.
“DAMWON is undoubtedly the best team at Worlds 2020. During the entire tournament, they gave up only 3 games, only to stand alone at the top of League of Legends. LCK wins its first title in three years! Congratulations!” these are the words of Isaac “Azael” Cummings Bentley, a Canadian caster.
“Congratulations to DAMWON for not only winning but also for becoming one of the most dominant teams in League of Legends history, considering how outstanding the last six months have been with this team,” Nick “LS” De Cesare, CLG streamer and commentator of the LCK added.
G2 Esports, who lost to DAMWON in the semi-finals added a congratulation in their own style:

The selection of Kim “Canyon” Geon-bu as the MVP of the final match did not pass the attention of Luka “Perkz” Perkovic, who commented: “Jungler becomes the Worlds MVP for the third time in a row? I think this is a good time for Riot to rethink this role during the off season.”
Marcin “Jankos” Jankowski decided to post of a similar nature. “Will Riot finally nerf the role of jungler so that G2 could win the Worlds?”
